Re: A Question for You Pros

Thanks again, Denny!

I put Natenberg's book on my list at Amazon. I happened to overhear I'm getting a new Kiindle Oasis for my birthday next month, so I'm holing out on a list of titles until then because it's waterproof. [more]

Re: What's Going On?

Hi 5,

Did you mean to spell TSLA, rather than TSLO?

Your core sounds pretty similar to my sheltered accounts, except I sold SHOP (again-idiot!) and don't have PTON yet. I hope that doesn't blow you up. :)

Re: On US Election Integrity and Litigation

Tim,

I'm still convinced we have the best governments that money can buy.

And the price has risen so far, so fast, that any return to the original intention

Re: Even More FSLY :)

Hi there, TMB,

So what has Beth been saying? I subscribe to her emails, but haven't had the time to read any yet.

No, I'm not sorry I bought FSLY. Heavens, I've made a lot of money on the company. I'm disappointed in [more]

What's Going On?

A friendly MidWestern < Honk! > to the gooses,

I haven’t posted much lately (You’re welcome.) so I thought I’d outline what I’ve been doing investment-wise lately. Sorry, I have no great story to go along with the outline and I’m too [more]

Even More FSLY :)

To be fair and completely candid, I’ve always harbored a few doubts about FSLY. It is one of the few stocks that I bought repeatedly and decided to continue holding, for mostly one reason—momentum. I don’t see FSLY as a disrupter as much as many [more]

Wow, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, Pos. I can't imagine the pain. Please allow me to say I suspect you're being a little too hard on yourself.

Re: A Question for You Pros

Thank you, Denny.

I recently accepted assignment of FSLY shares. I must have done the math a half dozen times to make sure I was "thinking right" and was still kinda nervous. :)

Oh, Ray,

Whoat, indeed!

I wish I could communicate more accurately, but don't know how many ways I can, "Well Done!" in 1 post.

Re: FVRR analysis for Champico33 & Dan

Hi again, Ray and all,

Duh! It occurs to me that my post might seem rather hypocritical in light of the fact that I invest for others.

Please be aware:

• I accept no advice.

Re: FVRR analysis for Champico33 & Dan

Hello, Ray,

Man, you scare me. :)

Excellent Due Dilligence, my friend! As I mentioned, I started a deep dive on FVRR last weekend, but I have a rather large home to get ready to sell and a basement to finish, all with deadlines, so [more]

A Question for You Pros

Actually, A couple of questions for you pros, please.

So a couple months ago you sold Oct 16 Puts. Your gains now sit at 99% of your
investment, but there is still 1 week to expiry. (The price is way out of the money.)

Any RapterD2 specific insights on any of the data?

Re: What About FVRR?

Well, well, well.

As mentioned before, I have held quite a bit of FVRR for some time. The reason I mentioned it recently is because I started a very deep dive on the company last weekend, but couldn't justify the time necessary to [more]
