    FUndamentals don't really matter with the memes but when DWAC releases more info and shows the dilution it will be ugly. Like SPRT style ugly

    I have been on a self imposed shitco pump timeout. Havenít gotten hosed, but donít like the mayhem and managing that has to happen. Been trying to be more sophisticated

    Played SPRT well, but far too conservative. Was playing lottos and closing at EOD or when they hit 200%. Had a boatload of ITM calls that I closed at EOD the night before moonshot to $50. Wouldíve been a very healthy payday if I held on.

    RIOT is still main sweety, got assigned another large chunk last Friday @ $30 and sold $35 and $40 on mon/tues. closed a good amount today for 60%. My YTD income from RIOT is laughable, it works until it doesnít, right?

    I use RIOT as a cash dividend proxy for BTC. I do have a lot of BTC, ETH in canadian etfs and plan to hold for a while. RIOT gives me my 20% monthly return while I hold. I'm a bit annoyed that its so sideways compared to before when it tracked BTC but the sideways trade works for the covered calls

    Tried for more DWAC borrows. There are now some but I'm not sure I have the stomach for that.

    I have some cash I came across, thinking of picking up 100 shares of DWAC. Options trading started on them today, holy hell! It closed at $83 and change today then went to $89 even after hours. Ask price on an $85 strike, 25 day expiry is $19.70.

    I’m not real good with math but that looks like a pretty good profit for 25 days. With Trump involved volatility is baked in, I think you could sell, rebuy, and sell numerous times over.

    Edit. The only downside would be holding the bag when the usual everything Trump touches turns to shit time comes around.

    I'd buy the warrants (DWACW) over the shares. The warrants give you the right to buy the stock at 11 approx. At present the warrants lag the stock. I'm short DWAC still and sold puts to close out the short. I used the put premium to buy protection (ie out of the money call options)

    In the end I decided to sit it out. Probably a good idea as by a half hour into trading today if I’d pulled off the buy and sell of the option I’d have been down. It would’ve gotten uglier from there, down over $27 by the time after hours was done.

    Decided to play safe with half my cash, have an order to buy KO tomorrow. I may chase it a bit depending on how the earnings report shakes out. I keep giving the side eye to MO, but every time I think hard about it I just can’t do it. The dividend is wonderful, but the growth possibilities seem shut down. A portfolio consisting of coke and smokes just sounds right, heh.

    In three trading days my BBBY prediction will go badly awry, I wasn’t even close. Even though (because) I’m down big I’m going to hold with the confidence they’ll be back.

    Somebody placed 3 separate single share orders in AH, limit buy at the ASK. A stock with avg. volume of 11 will move with small orders.

    HAHA owning BRK A......I mean I guess I could own a share.......but harder to trade actively with that strat.

    Its up again in afterhours tonight again not nearly as high though.

    The last time it was up in after hours like this, the next day Lehman Brothers went under.

    Donít think anyone actively trades it, or ever has. The ultimate boomer buy and hold flex.

    Brk was actively traded before Warren was born, and for 30+ years before he made it his holding corp which was when boomers were burning bras and raging against the man.

    Energy was down today, so of course I was down 1%. Didn’t bother me though, as my call sold for CMPS. I’ve had a limit order set for a while at a $45 strike, Dec 17 expiry, it hit my limit of $9 today.

    I’d had 14 shares of it at the end of Aug, bought 86 more shares putting me in it at $32.77/per. They should be reporting level II trials before Dec 17th. If it swoons past $45 I won’t care, that puts me out at $54, 64% increase in less than four months. If it’s mediocre to bad I’m protected down to $23.77.

    Ideally it closes Dec 17th at $44, heh. Although that probably won’t be the case, it’ll either boom or bust depending on those trials results. If it falls back in the next month I’ll probably buy back my call and buy some more shares.

    I just saw a commercial for them offering $400 off, you don’t offer discounts when your shit is selling well.

    I sold the Nov $40c some time ago and had close to 60% profit on them at one point, but let them ride. Not looking good now. Will see if we rally past $40 and hold it. Ok to let this one go at this point.

    Sorry, should have clarified the modern era A shared.

    Nice boomer credibility flex though

    Earnings comes out November 11, five trading days before your expiry. They don’t have an approved product yet and will show they are bleeding money. I’m betting that negative report will cool things off for a few days giving you time to buy back.

    yeah what I meant was I would have to curtail my more aggressive trading and put a ton of capital into a very slow growth share.

    As someone who no only works 3 days a week as a ski instructor and in the off season days trades cryptos it would be less risky but not as lucrative deal. If MOASS actually happens though I will get a share, with that said I view MOASS as a high probability lottery ticket, where Day trading is actually a source of somewhat standard income.

    You think moass is high probability? Somehow I evolved into long term buy and hold. Moass would be nice though!

    higher than lottery ticket

    Honestly GME fundmentals with the NTF market place(With help from Loopring(LRC), and the GME metaverse may change so much that buy and HOLD with no MOASS still may work.

    But people Direct registering their shares to get them out of the DTCC pool, and a potential NFT dividend can both start to burn shorts and synthetic positions. A NFT Dividend would put the short position in a bind real quick.
