Not sure if this is the right thread, but is anyone rebalancing 401(k)'s/IRA's with these gains?  I'm up 15% on the year and want to 'bank' some of those gains before we get a correction.

I actually tend to increase my 401K contribution percentage during corrections to take advantage of the lower prices. I don't really touch those particular accounts otherwise since they're just mutual funds and the time horizon is decades for me. I move the funds around sometimes, like I moved some into emerging markets last year. 

My IRA's I'm a little more active but generally same thing. I have some funds I use to trade frequently because of my ADD but otherwise the time horizon is decades so I don't try to time anything.

ETA: I mean wholesale timing - I'll try to add on pullbacks or trim crazy spikes in some cases

Yeah, I continue to contribute and just set up an increase of to take effect mid-August.  I just turned 50 and am considering converting half of this year's gains to bond funds.

Hopping in now that it's in the mid .05 range.  Not a big share but don't want to miss out on the fun.

I just turned 50 as well, but I don’t touch the contributions now. Since my wife went back to work after the last of the kids was in school we increased contributions and probably the last 5-7 years been making sure our %s maxed out and got all the matches. I got the extra over 50 contributions maxed out as well for both of us now.

I don’t get why you would want to move that much to bonds. 50 may seem old but it’s still a decade before you can even touch it without penalty. I do have target funds for some of my investment options so I know there’s some bonds in there but once you setup good long term options, I don’t see the need to change anything. Rebalancing because you like other long term funds better or there’s a dud mutual fund, I get but 50 seems early to get super conservative. For my taxable accounts last March wasn’t fun but honestly for my 401ks I was kind of happy feeling like I’d contribute a ton at a discount. Unfortunately, it popped back up fast but the gains this year have been nice.

I wouldn't recommend swapping out winning stocks for Amazon.

On a more serious note, 50 is way to early to move to bonds.  With inflation you are just going to lose ground.

Sorry guys, but I just hopped in so you should probably sell today and buy back in a couple of days.

As I was saying...was down 13%.  Just doubled down

Is Amazon finally making its move? @BassNBrew @Amazon Alexa @DEAD MONEY

Sure miss those $100 pops we saw last year.  I'm selling my first share at $3499 and then dumping one every $100 which will keep me in Amazon for the next 5 years.  Anytime it falls back $200 I'll add a share and then add one more each $100 it falls.  At this moment I'm just under 27% invested and would like to get that to 10%.

I think I'm going to dump MUDS (at a 26+% loss).

Talk me out of it?

Well, I won’t talk you out of it, but understand the frustration. 
 

I’m all in and long, it’s the first stock I really did research on and can’t see how it doesn’t recover after merger. It’s Q1 numbers were fantastic and Q2 should be as well.

Nice recovery. I’m up 1% overall right now. Was flat when things were down more.

Had a bowl of Morning Summit cereal with Oatly Milk and it was terrific!  Celebrated my new healthy life choices until I made the mistake of reading the nutrition labels.....good god, I'm better off eating a bowl of Captain Crunch with Chocolate Milk and cocaine.

Stocks, bonds, RE, crypto, inflation.  Just one of those days.

I agree... I’m down 11% but if playboy can be a $50, I have no doubt this will be post merger... it’s a hold and forget for me.

That makes no sense to pay a special dividend then dilute.  They should be buying back shares.  

May not actually be dilution. Filing is confusing. The market is reacting like it's dilution though.

He’s so right. There is more speculative stocks/outright crap that are worth dozens of times what they should be. I’m sure as a trader or the people who start the runs with tweets and Reddit, you could make money hand over fist but the followers will get crushed. It will be interesting but there is a massive transfer of wealth going into these companies and the shareholders are happy to dilute their own shares.

Curevac (German vaccine) had disappointing results in their trial. Looks like it’s about half of what it was today.

I shorted a small bit of this near the current bottom.  The IPO was originally priced at $16 and this entire run-up has been entirely based on its Covid vaccine candidate that just flunked.  Even after today's slaughter it's still up 400% from the initial IPO pricing and even that had the Covid vaccine hopes heavily priced in.

The market is irrational so it will never get near that IPO price but there could still be more downside.

Agree 100% with the bolded. With so much retail investors, stocks are getting propped up to the point where companies are selling so many extra shares and their execs in some cases are dumping large %s of their shares. You feel like there will be tons of these worthless shares in a lot of people’s accounts in a few years. People are fixated on price and nothing else. There are a lot of really bad companies with sky high valuations even if there’s bad news. RIDE has had devastating news but the new CEO can come out and say all is fine and it’s at the original SPAC price. It’s not often that a company tells you that there’s a good chance that they’ll run out of money before they produce anything, which has already been delayed, and that they grossly misrepresented future sales.

I’m just at a loss for when the realizations hit because so much cash has been handed over to these companies willingly that they could limp around for a long time.

$TTD stock split is today so don’t have a heart attack when you log in fellow holders.

Fidelity will be fine but I just changed my yahoo holdings and damn did I have a nice day yesterday. Today will be a bloodbath, going to be hard to figure out if I’m up or down as the 90% drop on the prior share price with 10x shares will likely overshadow everything else.

NNOX submitted their 510K to the FDA for the multisource. This is the actual commercial device. I made nice money on them but I’m waiting for approval before getting back in mainly due to the missed milestones. Still, they’re more or less on time with this one.

Nice.  Sold the $23 shares for $32.  Really don't want to be more than 0.5% weighted in this stock.

I really don't like hearing about insiders selling shares prior to FDA decisions.   Doesn't seem entirely uncommon in biotech but regardless I still don't like it.

I want them to have the same conviction that I have and when they don't, it makes me question it

If this was 2020 I'd be posting a lot of rocket ship emojis right now, but I'm much more mature than that young pup from a year ago.

 

I’ll take a 2% overall up day anytime. Yesterday and today looked bleak and have been pretty nice.
