$aapl strong today. I had a few shares at $147 and added today through $150. Market is usually better when Apple is strong.

Added this spec bio in PM. I am 20% of a full position as this could get really fall if data is bad down the line. Will add shares on dips.

Well I only ended up being about half of a normal position on Friday at $7.60 as this ran so hard but it looks great. I did trim some today at $8.60

If QQQ happens to close here this week (or higher I suppose), it’ll be a breakout up out of the uptrend range that it’s been respecting for just about a year now (will be at a year at the end of the week).

Party like it’s 1999, I guess.

I’m torn here honestly. If things that have happened in the last year or so even matter anymore, we are dang close to this being too much by the Nasdaq for the 3rd time in about a year (September and February were the times where something happened). Another 2-3% and I would think so. But perhaps this thing is about to get truly insane.

…or maybe it’ll just cool off some like it did for a month after that insane move from July 19th to the 23rd.

Sold a SPRT $6 put for $85 yesterday. I don't usually mess with these meme stocks but I don't see how this drops below $6 in the next month if its in the 30s right now.

Sold 90% at $11 and added back half at $9.70. It needs to consolidate now but thus has a chance to reach $20 in next 6-9 months.

I think ‘too much’ hit today in the Nasdaq. Didn’t crash and burn like it has at times after running hot but it is well off session highs.

Tech had several fades today…AMZN/Apple with fairly toppy candles…inverted hammers. I went flat AMZN…heck of a run from $3190. I reduced Apple and AMD. Maybe short term top in large cap tech.

They tweeted this out, price jumped almost $1 on 1.6 million traded in 5 minutes and then back to slow bleed..... this price action is insane. I used to not buy into all the price manipulation crap but really no other way to explain it.

Didn't realize that the DRIV ETF (electric vehicles) has basically been basing for a few months until a couple days ago.

May add some shares to hopefully tuck away for a long time during the next pullback (because who knows with me). It's the area of clean energy that has actually had some results so far, and further advances are likely coming.

I know I believe my dad held PBW for a long time with it doing nothing, and while clean energy and all of the fun tech were really popping late last year and early this year, he pointed it out to me and said "I've held this ETF for a long time with it doing nothing until now."

But like I said "who knows with me" because my patience can be bad.

Caught $ANY today…started at $7.60 and it’s trying to get through $10. Sold a lot at $9.50, added a lot back at $8.70 and seeing if it can clear $10.

This is why spec bios scare the crap out of me. My god…news came in AH’s, entire positions wiped out. Almost a complete loss.

You can make a ton of money on these though, when they drop like that they often will bounce. This dropped to 3.37 and is now at 5.65, a 68% increase if you bought the dip and sell the bounce.

$roku been absolutely hammered and it’s clinging to the 50wma.

Many covid stocks are getting taken to the woodshed.

For those who like mutual funds, here’s a few I bought recently. I’m big into diversifying my portfolio into long term growth through mutual funds and dividend plays, 2/3 allocated this way and then 1/3 for speculative/daytrade stuff.

FSMEX - 5 star with Morningstar, YTD return of about 20% and 10 year avg return of nearly 22% per marketwatch and pay capital gain dividends 2x a year when the fund does well. This fund focuses on the health sector.

PRMTX - 5 stars, YTD nearly 19% and 10 year average return of 21%. Pays capital gains as well. Tech and communications sector.

PRWAX - 4 stars, focuses on long term growth stocks. YTD nearly 20% so far and 10 year avg is the same. Pays a capital gain.

FOCPX - 4 stars, focuses mainly on tech and smaller companies as well. A 24% YTD return and 10 year avg is a blistering 23%. Pays capital gains and a really solid fund.

These mutual funds might seem “boring” but I’ll take the diversification and steady growth they offer, these are funds I park some profits in and forget about them and let them do their thing.

I love dividend plays too, here’s a few of my favorites. USA, BST, EOS, DIVO, JEPI, RYLD, KNG, BME, AIO, and VNQ. I don’t have all these but am working towards that. You get a solid combo of high yield, growth, and some stability with ones like KNG and DIVO. My dividend portfolio is averaging a 9.7% yield right now.

Bought this after hours. FDA approval for nasal spray migraine medicine and sold off hard after big spike. Rumors of offering…but this should run in the coming weeks.

small market cap, small float. But, they have a product now.
