Bought some weed stocks on a whim back in August and they have been doing well - going to purchase more. I didn’t purchase a lot so relatively small gains

ACBFF up 120%
APHQF up 47%

Also had GWPH but it’s a loser.

Man, I just can’t stomach buying much right now. The fall has got to be coming.

I did sell some AAPL and buy some MMM with most of the money.

Sold most of my position in GWPH. They've had a nice enough increase over the past two weeks that I was able to lock in some gains.

Coming up on selling season. Who is looking to sell of their duds in order to claim the loses on this years taxes?

Download the coinbase app, and buy directly from there. Or buy GBTC.

anyone looking at Raiblocks? right now it's a pain to buy since you have to buy it with BTC but it's moving onto a larger exchange next week - should see a ton of volume - I think you'll be able to buy it direct on the new exchange. My cousin was telling me about it.

i typically fluctuate around 5-10% in cash of my net worth throughout the year - rarely will i ever go over 10% unless it's extremely temporary

Typically 5-10% here as well, though the last few years it's been more in that 5% or less range. The amount of cash I like to keep hasn't really increased with my net worth.

yeah, that's more typical. I've been about 20-25% cash for a little while now, continually taking profits and keeping at least some of the money on the sidelines as I sold, thinking the stock market has become overheated. Not 20-25% of net worth, but about 20-25% of my liquid brokerage account holdings.

I'm still dubious of current valuations, at the very least as an attractive place to buy in, but i can't stand to keep that much money in cash anymore, watching the markets continue to climb.

I bought some bonds today (AGG), hoping that the rising interest rates are largely priced in and I can at least make the 2.75% yield, which beats the hell out of cash. I also placed a limit order for a high-div, low-volatility stock ETF (SPHD)...I set the limit at just under a 1% decline, so that ought to go through before too long.

That'll still leave plenty of cash on hand, and I'll prob buy some more of that SPHD next time there's a little dip.

I keep about 75% liquid, but that said, I need cash to buy flips/foreclosures and also do hard money lending for friends that flip.

Raiblocks ($XRB) crushing it right now. Get in if you have money to risk. Can see this tech going to $100+ in 2018

15%. Was much higher, but some gains shifted it lower.

3% of net worth. I'm assuming bitcoins aren't considered liquid.

I'm the worst apparently at single stock picks. Been dabbling with small investments into high risk just to see how I can do, and the answer is shit.


About a year ago invested in GoPro at $45, price now is $6.50.

About three months ago invested in DXTR at $.35, fuckers went bankrupt and now worth $.04.

At least it's not big money, lost maybe $500 on each. Thank god not real money.

So a company I have stock in just got "purchased".

Share price jumped almost 100%.

What will happen to my shares? The articles say they will be purchased for "$105" cash?
How will this impact my Capital gains? I am not quite at 2 years so far (purchased through a ESPP plan), which is what I need to reach for LT cap gains rates.

Ford (F):

-Giant dividend, and should be sustainable. I think they even just announced a special dividend or something.
-dirt cheap P/E (6.x)
-leadership position on the autonomous vehicle front.
-price suppressed on recent earnings miss

-stock market in general is looking good, and should be juiced for another little while with the recent tax bill, but the bottom line is that this bull market is historically overextended, and this tax bill, in my opinion, may succeed in delaying the inevitable, but make it more severe when it happens. A blue chip company with a 5.x% yield (at current valuations) seems like a nice defense play in that light.


Thoughts?

^^^ Volatility drives option premiums. Probably a good time to play with them.

Also, it's just "puts". Not a ticker symbol or acronym.

Speaking of volatility and premiums, I've been holding CORR for a while and occasionally writing calls on it to juice my return. Just picked up a bit more to capture the ex-dividend date on 2/13. After that I'll either write in the money calls to unload it or possibly out of the money calls 3 months out so I can get paid again.
