Why Value Investing Works

The only way you will stick with something that is not working (temporarily) is by understanding what you are doing.

How to know when Bitcoin is in a bubble? Cost per transaction sky rockets. Each fee spike can be lined up with a BTC spike. You can check out all sorts of Bitcoin Block chain data, and this chart here: https://www.blockchain.com/charts/cost-per-transaction. All this data is publicly available as the BTC blockchain is open to scan all transactions on it.

**POSITION UPDATE**

The market valuation and expectations are high. Anything less than blow out great news is met with OMG reactions. Add to that margin debt (i.e. borrowed money to buy stock) is very high, flows into leveraged ETF "bullish" funds are at all time highs and corporate insiders are not participating in the buying. Thus volatility, but I'm more concerned about a chain reaction where stocks go into forced liquidation and the snow ball rolls down the hill (and quickly). The larger question is "when" and not necessarily "if". The 'when' point is unknown and again, my concern is we won't have much time to protect ourselves. In the mean time, the march higher continues. Of note is an interesting statistic: Roughly 80% of the stocks in the S&P 500 (large cap) are above their 50 day moving average (i.e. appear to be going higher). Only 40% on the stocks in the Russell 2000 (small cap) are above their 50 day average, and 30% of those in the broad NASDAQ Composite index are above. Perhaps signs of narrowing participation; generally not a positive indicator. (more text on www.special-risk.net)

This is a pie chart of the stock market sectors and where most of my investments are being allocated. This just means I need to look into the following sectors as well: materials, industrials, utilities, healthcare, energy, and communication services. Any suggestions on what I need to buy?

What we’re seeing now is strength in Large Cap growth stocks, primarily in Technology, Consumer and Industrial sectors. I’m a big fan of scaling into and out of positions to try and control risk. If next week continues to show strength I’ll add to my current positions but so far, so good. Beware the start of 1st Qtr. earnings season; this market is "Priced for Perfection". I'm expecting volatility in both directions. Short Term Sector Strength table:

One of the most difficult and intimidating tasks for any trader or investor is to try and determine when a particular stock has bottomed or reaches a point where it no longer decreases significantly.

In light of previously events, I sensed buyers are reentering the market. (ViacomCBS, Discovery plunge due in part to forced liquidation of Archegos Capital positions ) <--Google that titled for more information

I preferably purchased Class A shares, instead of Class B, because Class A shares have voting rights. Due to the significant price decrease, I foresee retail/institutional investors accumulating shares as a pure arbitrage play, and I am expecting other companies to stake a position in efforts to launch a potential hostile takeover at a later date.

Starbucks (SBUX) interests me. You can definitely see an uptrend in the restaurant industry. And SBUX appeared on my screener making new highs. The chart below is from FINVIZ. Starbucks is a great company to hold long-term (buy and never sell). Establish position of 10, 20 and ultimately 100 shares. But today, I am betting this company is going higher over the short-term. I have a pending order for Option Call, 12 Contracts, strike price $117 and expiring 4/23 (Robinhood). I know it will rise and fall until it gets near the strike price hopefully within the next few days. I am not a financial advisor. Please do your research before copying my trades.

Trying to get this portfolio (We have opinions) back on track; my experiment with meme stonks has not produced good results so we're going to close some positions, rebalance, and take positions in more reliable symbols. Let's see if I can get back into the green before Memorial Day.

Merger of Switchback and Chargeback may not deliver on its promise immediately, especially with the current state of the economy and a lot of EV markets dropping significantly. However, some EV companies are still higher than they were a year ago.

I give most EV products until 2025 to live up to their potential, which may have to be adjusted in the future due to COVID-19.
