    Took profit on some RIOT "bought" in mid 20s via cash secured puts. Covered rest of ClOV.

    RIDE is tanking. Hindenburg released a short report alleging financial fraud. Company denies allegations yet fires CEO,/CFO. WKHS is still holding up well (it's a very heavily shorted Pos) despite one of its primary assets being a 10% stake in RIDE

    Didn't do much today. Tried to get filled on BB and ATOS calls but didn't hit where I wanted. Was extremely tempted to sell RIOT calls, but think this BTC run has some more steam, and I have some shares that may get called away soon at $35. If BTC starts flirting with $50k again RIOT may be back to the $50-$60 range, 100% guessing.

    Really contemplating rolling my 6/18 HGEN $30 Calls (bought) to 7/16...Possibly just adding to a sinking ship, but i'd hate to see this position expire worthless. Will look at it tomorrow and probably make a plan.

    Lee, you making a play at UPST or SKLZ? I looked at selling the 7/16 $17.5 put today, but decided to see what it does the rest of the week. Don't want to tie up all of my BP on a Monday!!

    Covert! Was thinking of you. I went into this week with RIOT free and clear and promised myself to not sell any calls. I even have RIOT 35Ps sold expiring this week and didn't touch them. I'm thinking of letting RIOT run more and take profits by calls in mid 40s.

    I looked at SKLZ and it doesn't excite me. It's not recurring revs and dependent on hit games and cultish venues. Sort of like CMCM or EA (both of which I have earned in the past) but more so for esports. Haven't really looked at UPST much yet. Am very intrigued at the idea of shorting WKHS again but ideally I want a perfect setup. Three up days, massive volume, WSB going crazy and RSI into the 90s - that sort of technical mumbo-jumbo.

    I have half my shares of RIOT tied up in $30 and $35 7/16 calls that I rolled from 6/18. Probably will let the other half sit on the sideline and see how this plays out. Now that I say that it will bleed out the rest of the week and I couldíve closed for 50% by weeks end.

    Assuming SI is still highish? Would hate to miss out on a super pump fueled by WSB.

    Whatís your thinking on BB? Long term value play? Or quick squeeze pump going for a ride with the others? It seems a buyout or large rev increase is possible with lots of the auto manufacturers choosing their software and other tech down the road. Iím content wheeling half of my shares selling $20ish calls and keeping the other half ready to launch.

    Re BB. I am a bagholder. Truth be told I finally have a profitable position and would be happy to dump it. As far as a high beta Yolo it doesn't fit my criteria (its boring). I shorted the recent volatility via a short strangle expiring this week and will gradually unwind. IV dropped from 280% to present so I'll be happy to move on

    Saw a comment on the reddit that Eagle Tree is selling out bit by bit and that is going to suppress the price. Thoughts? Also, profit margin, income look and operating income look unpredictable. I wonder how much of their income came from Elgato (" which provides premium studio equipment and accessories for content creators"). That would have been big with covid work from home broadcasting etc. Just wondering if anyone has looked at this closely.

    edit: people might want to look at what happened to industry competitors also before jumping into that one as a long term hodl at pandemic prices. Case in point being their competitors that show similar charting. https://www.google.com/finance/quote...DAQ?window=MAX

    Hindenburg hitting DKNG too

    https://hindenburgresearch.com/draftkings/


    • We estimate that roughly 50% of SBTech’s revenue continues to come from markets where gambling is banned, based on an analysis of DraftKings’ SEC filings, conversations with former employees, and supporting documents.
    • As one former employee told us, DraftKings’ subsidiary SBTech has “sold to plenty of mobs”, a sharp contrast to the clean image of DraftKings’ brand-conscious partners, including the NFL, NBA, NASCAR, UFC and PGA, and the company’s recent hire of supermodel Gisele Bundchen to advise on governance issues.
    • Prior to the SPAC merger, SBTech seems to have made a concerted effort to distance itself from its black-market dealings. Illicit customer relationships were shuffled into a newly formed “distributor” entity called BTi/CoreTech, with ~50 SBTech employees shifted across town to the new entity.
    • The CEO selected to run BTi/CoreTech was formerly an executive of a ‘binary options’ gambling firm raided by the FBI and subsequently charged by the SEC for deceiving U.S. investors out of over $100 million.
    • We identified numerous black market clients of DraftKings’ “front” entity, through searches on social media and back-end web infrastructure. For example, an Asia-focused site tied to a triad kingpin at the center of a Swiss money laundering investigation advertises its use of BTi/CoreTech technology.


    • We think DraftKings has systematically skirted the law and taken elaborate steps to obfuscate its black market operations. These violations appear to be continuing to this day, all while insiders aggressively cash out amidst the market froth.

    Will Redditors go long DKNG, or are they out of $$ betting on all the other tickers?
    And who names their fund Hindenburg?

    Maybe Todd has much more generous parents and in-laws.

    Isn't the takeaway a Bogle-esque “Don't look for the needle in the haystack. Just buy the haystack!” as well as don't let a financial planner skim a little off the top? I guess "generous parents and in-laws" would help but that seems incidental to what is essentially a Vanguard sales pitch (and as it turns out a Rorschach test).

    Well, sure, but, Todd didn't get to a mil in savings at his age on his own, I'll bet.

    Maybe he didn't move to a CO ski town at 21 and work as a ski technician for 7 years like Brett?

    He's also married, so in reality he doesn't have anywhere near $1.1M, she does.

    Todd looks early/mid 40s. That is not at all outrageous to have 1mil in retirement savings for a dual income household. 20 years of saving 15% of their income invested in the S&P got you 6% return every year on average... they'd be sitting at +1mil.

    Or, maybe they like having nice new cars, the latest clothes and electronics, dont cook much for themselves, eat out for lunch everydays, buy $6 lattes each morning and go skiing 3 times per year where the buy day tickets, rentals and lessons for the whole crew. In which case, it would be damn hard to save that much.

    Or maybe Todd chucked a few grand into GME back in July and cashed out in April?

    Or maybe Todd didn't take on six figures in student debt obtaining a degree that would put him on a career path that would enable a mil in savings in his early forties because his parents and/or grandparents covered school, then Todd was gifted a large down payment for his young family's home by same said relatives, who also take care of the family's other expenses in various other ways that poor Brett has ever hoped in seeing in his brutal life in capitalism.
