125% return in 2021 - really hope 2022 is even better! Made 50 plus good trades (mostly starting in Oct. 2021) and over 3 months doubled.. Most recent trade was CCL.. Working on improving consistency but generally thankful to everyone in the group - reading your posts helped me learn a lot
$CCL can easily pass through $22 today so I took a big position on the $22 calls expiring today. there is also a bull flag formation about to break out on the intraday, I'm down 80% but in hoping to be up 100% by end of the day if $CCL gets to $22.10
🚨Carnival Cruise (CCL) is set to BLAST off as the next coming of GME&AMC only on a LARGER scale. As COVID subsides America is set to #takebacktheseas🌊🌊. High ranking GOVT’ officials have been buying #CCL in bulk this past week a precursor for what is to come. Now we wait🚨✊🏼✅ #seathefuture
Hey Retards, shorting $CCL here for a short term play with durations expiring tomorrow (8/13) & 8/20 buying put options between 23 strikes all the way down to 20.50 strikes. Also have a few contracts out to 8/27. I also did a few short 23/long 24 strike spreads for 8/27. Delta is spreading.
CCL Bullish! All Carnival Cruise Line needs is a good year. CCL can make a comeback by the Post-Covid Renaissance caused by either isolation or over worked employees. Another note, Canada has brought back it's plans for cruises from February 2022 to its now current schedule of November 2021.
I bought 16.9k worth of CCL and I'm bullish. Right now the drops are due to small market correction and also fear of further pandemic effects, but I believe CCL will make a comeback by Q4 2021 or latest Q2 2022 but that's just my very bullish opinion.
Stocks I own: AAPL, TSLA, GRMN, CTVA, CCL, NIO The only ones I'm positive is CCL and NIO (highly speculative). If you look at the graphs of the others they exploded in a strange way from march 2020 and now they are coming down exactly at the same levels they were in December 2019 and from there they will restart to grow slowly at the previous rate
Agree there is some big money supporting LCID. But worth watching it. I played puts last week but it never broke 37 which my expectation, still made money. I expect some weakness coming week and months. I play mostly day trades these days. swinging puts is risky same with another ticker CCL extremely strong around 18-19.
I have AMD as a reputable tech stock, I guess for meme stocks I am holding BB, and AMC. I'm also holding 20% crypto and Hive Stock. I actually have Netflix, and Disney but Netflix is not something I want to talk about rn... The other diversified stock I have is Funko, CCL, and CPNG. IRONICALLY FNKO is doing the best in terms of % down.
Two questions: * How old are you? You haven't mentioned family or retirement so I assume you're on the young side which means I think you're going to be fine. * You said you started with low six figures. Now you have $350k. Aren't you pretty much even at this point (I guess it depends on what you meant by low six figures). > INTC, QQQ, Netflix, AMD, NVDA, CCL, JWN, Microsoft, etc Take solace in the fact that you are capable of picking winners. Microsoft, AMD, NVDA, even INTC are going to do great in the long run. Now you know in the future to trust your own ideas and research. Before you do anything rash, just remember a couple of things: * There's a pandemic and you made it through alive. Yay you! * You're not alone. Tons of people are suffering right now. But you have a roof over your head, you can afford food. Sure we might have to eat a lot of sandwiches and learn how to use slow cookers for a while, but we can laugh about it together. ARKG could still surprise you in 10 years.
Selling in the money calls is a method to partially sell the stock position: your sale of extrinsic value is stock value. With CCL at 20.80, and a strike of $15, you are selling 5.80 dollars of intrinsic value. If the stock continues down, your gain on the option offsets further losses on the stock. If the stock falls to, say, 18, the stock will be called away at $15, so gross proceeds will be 20.85. If the stock goes up, your stock will be called away at $15, and your gross proceeds will be: $15, plus $5,85, for 20.85 total. If the stock falls greatly, below $15, you will keep the stock, and keep the premium, and will have reduced the stock loss by the premium of 5.85.
Question about selling deep ITM CCs Would selling deep ITM CCs be a way to useful way to exit a trade? Want to get out of a buy from last year and recoup some losses from that market buy if possible. Here are some numbers if they would be helpful in answering the question: Market Value of shares held: 21,400 Equity: 15k Margin used: 6,400 Margin Availble: 24,350 Cash Available to Withdraw: 9k Ticker CCL: current price 20.80 Idea: sell CCs (10) with a 15s w/ an expiration of 1/28, currently priced at 5.85. Would selling said CCs help me exit the trade and keep my portfolio as is in the case the shares get called? I think the best case scenario is that the stock remains flat and options expire worthless. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Honestly fine. I bought the omicron dip on DAL and CCL from December. My AFL, INTC play from December is doing spectacular too. Bought the TGT dip yesterday and thus far it's printing. Idk there's like this weird delusion that the ENTIRE market is overvalued. If you're making money on ber plays good for you though, I'm all for making money up and down using the whole animal.
I'm up over 40% on most of my CCL pretty sure, my average is 26% right now, been holding steady for a while. RR has been a good play as well, but they have been stagnant for weeks now. Havnt bought more in a bit, but definitely options out there. Have a buddy whos really big on mgm. I'll buy a cruise line but I'm weary of a hotel chain lmao.
This right here. We have nationalizing the housing industry and socialized the banks, the airlines, the autos, et cetera, to the point when the fed removes nine trillion from their balance sheet most of these company’s no longer exist. None of the cruiselines or airlines will be able to avoid bankruptcy protection and I suspect we will see further consolidation through M&A’s in the sector similar to the last round of bankruptcy’s and bailouts ten years ago. These balance sheets are horrendous most with massive amounts of LT debt and negative shareholder equity that when a liquidity crisis comes they will not be able to restructure. AAL is by far the worst $36BB in LT debt and $8BB in negative shareholder equity is the first to file for bankruptcy. BA with $62BB in LT debt and $18BB in negative shareholder equity isn’t to far behind in bankruptcy protection. The cruiselines are even a bigger shitshow and none of them are incorporated in the US(CCL incorporated in Panama, RCL incorporated in Liberia, vessels flagged in Bahamas) nor do they pay federal income taxes. No bailouts for anyone and I would be extremely hesitate with these sectors, IMHO.
Also — I tend to hold for a year for tax purposes. So some things like RYCEY or CCL — they have short term volatility because of Covid. But if you are buying because you believe in the company and the news / info / conditions you are buying them for — it makes it easier for me to ignore or double down on dips — because you aren’t expecting to immediately sell for profit. You go in with a mind frame of hitting a specific condition or timeframe, and the immediate stuff is just static to ignore. I’m not selling and getting hit with a 40% tax bill; I’m going for long term earnings.
Be cognizant of the news that companies put out. It may not be during earnings reports. For example — I bought ford when I saw the prototypes for the Bronco. It wasn’t released, but I thought it’d be big. I bought Nintendo years ago before the Wii was released by seeing an news article that mentioned they acquired a company with patents on wireless motion sensitive controllers, which ended up making it into the Wii and was a huge differentiator for them. And also look for info in earnings reports too. CCL I bought in December because they had a great quarter and mentioned how much their cash burn and liquidity were. And so between the increase in revenue, cash burn, liquidity, I bought (quite a lot) because I think 2022 we will shake a lot of the Covid issues. I’m also buying certain companies because of legislative actions and changes in markets. Example: the switch to electric cars and the new infrastructure legislation will create new opportunities for companies like GE, Siemens, Duke Energy. So — in summary — find good companies you believe in and you believe may be under valued (due to market conditions, lack of recent compelling news, or future trajectory). Watch news sources for news on new releases, break throughs, legislation, or future product. Think through downstream effects of things and the companies that supply bottlenecks. Buy when your gut says to buy. That’s worked well for me.
Even if they do just a matter of time until liftoff. People are dying to get out. Some are dying when they go out! LOL But omni is BS. Word is its about to peak then numbers drop big time. Where I live the covid testing lines are half what they were monday. Once cruises are back on water and show profit again this is gonna pop big. I recently went in heavy on CCL on the dip. Sitting green already and expect more
Word is omni going to peak soon. Then will drop bigtime. I see cruises as a good buy in. Royal, Carnival, Norweigen. Its been on a dip lately but once people get the itch to get out on the water come spring time they should see some healthy profits. disclosure I am in on CCL and NCLH. Feeling great about my positions
CCL NCLH RCL have over a year of cash burn left. My investment assumption is omicron will plummet in the US by the end of January like it has in other countries and barring a sudden new variant will provide many months and perhaps permanent ending of covid restrictions. Money will flood into reopening just based on psychology and optimism.
I do this. I’d say the only disadvantage is that if you are expecting the put to expire and a news event happens you can get caught with your pants down. Ex: Early in The pandemic,or maybe before it even started, I sold some puts on CCL, assuming if I got assigned at the LOW price the put was sold for the dividend would be nice while it recovered. Then the news about COVID got much worse, CCL cut their dividend and the stock plunged WAY below the strike price of my put before I could blink. Of course the shares got assigned to me. The guy on the other side of that trade was a winner. I sold for a loss as I didn’t think it would move much as the news kept getting worse. And at least that call was solid. So even if you want the stock the news could change while your waiting for the put to decay rather quickly. And you could be stuck with a stock who’s story you liked has totally changed. Also, I try to avoid selling puts expiring around earnings announcements. And if you have a froth company you don’t mind owning those are the best, because as long as the stock rises you can keep writing new outs as the old ones expire.
Fwiw I think it’s a good opportunity. The revenue has dramatically improved quarter over quarter. 20M 50M 500M and the latest in December 1.2B. They still have a long way to go to get back to their pre-Covid revenue (in 2019 it was 19B for the year) but they are making progress. Their cash burn in q4 2021 was 500M, but they also said they had 9B in liquidity if they need to tap it. So yeah that wait good but it just shows you they also have a lot of runway to weather Covid, a disease we already have an effective vaccine for which even with omicron has gotten weaker. And the governments seem to also be moving this direction and changing the tone to “we should treat this as a flu moving forward.” I think this year will be positive momentum for CCL.
