down 15% from acc high from getting whipsawed on contracts and just greedy entries. gotta take a step back and revise the options playbook. in the meantime, going to deleverage and go back to shares doin' BOs and EPs. On the bright side, there are some setups that are manifesting themselves: LIDR, SFL, LTHM, KRP, FLNG, PRCT, CI
I just have a hard time in the Lidar segment. Too many players (LAZR, AEVA, INVZ, VLDR, MVIS, LIDR) and no one mention Hesai that is control pricing I heard - just too many players to say who the winner will be. Also, no one has really addresses signal degradation issue to make me comfortable investing. Good Luck.
Well this is a weird surprise. I've been long LIDR for months now. Unbelievable management team, and leading LiDar technology. It appears to be squeezing a bit for some reason? Either that or someone wants in lmao. Either way my $3.90 cost basis with 800 shares is looking nice
Argo AI was valued at 7.5 Billion in June when every Lidar company was overvalued and there was a lot of too early hype. Most public lidar stocks have fallen like 70% in value over that last year. Look at VLDR, LAZR, MVIS, LIDR AEVA, OUST. All significantly down over the last 8 months. While the Ford/Google connection for Argo AI will insulate it a bit from that correction/consolidation, it isn’t immune and likely is valued Billions less than the $7.5B back last June.
In the case of VLDR, I personally would not concentrate on EPS but the overall segment (Lidar competition) and its position (strength / weaknesses) within the segment. I looked at the segment about 6 months ago, and decided there are just too many players in the Lidar space (LAZR, AEVA, INVZ, VLDR, OUST,ARBE,LIDR,MVIS) to determine the winner. People has been reporting that OUST has the best technology, but I never hear them mention [Hesai](https://www.hesaitech.com/en) that I hear was controlling pricing. I have not followed with the founder's issues with company - I personally would stay away. Here is an [old article](https://arstechnica.com/cars/2019/02/the-ars-technica-guide-to-the-lidar-industry/) that may help you - it is dated but still has some good information. Good Luck.
Good Luck, but I hear Hesai controls the pricing in the market. There are just too many players in the Lidar space (LAZR, AEVA, INVZ, VLDR, ARBE,LIDR,MVIS) to determine the winner. Here is [an old article](https://arstechnica.com/cars/2019/02/the-ars-technica-guide-to-the-lidar-industry/) that may help you.
Simple - too many Lidar players (LAZR, AVEA, INVZ, VLDR, GCAC, OUST, ARBE, LIDR, MVIS) - too many players to know who will win. Here is an [old article](https://arstechnica.com/cars/2019/02/the-ars-technica-guide-to-the-lidar-industry/) summaries some of them. The one thing that always bother me with this segment - is no one talks about [Hesai](https://www.hesaitech.com/en) and I heard they are driving cost down due to China production.
Merger vote is 1/31 & approved by SEC so it will be trading as QNGY come feb. Look at other lidar despacs (LIDR, LAZR, INVZ, AEVA, VLDR, OUST). Many of them tank because of overvalued deals. Whats nice about CCAC/QNGY is that it is the lowest valued lidar play with the highest amount of potential IMO. I would expect in the short term for commons to trail anywhere from 7-12 depending on market factors. Very possible that acquisitions and partnerships will be announced after public status. Lockup agreements also have a lot to do with short-term despac movement.

ARBE was close to 9 before the PIPE shares got registered. I think people were afraid that PIPE would still dump at those levels and sold out (like ML, LIDR etc) and when they saw that a dump was not happening, they FOMOd back in. GWH on the other hand is at 18 on nothing other a post deSPAC pump.
Sell everything. Sell 210 12/17 $4 LIDR puts. Pocket $8400 when they expire unassigned. I'm holding 83 of those contracts myself. That'll get you to 84.4k by mid December. Want to go riskier? Sell 185 of the $5 put for $17,205. That'll get you to 93.2k if they don't get assigned. I am not sure it won't be @ $5. But if you want to risk it, that'll get you very close to 100k. (Not financial advise. I went from 243k to 180k to 212k to 88k to 120k so take that as you wish)
It wasn't these two, but I played LIDR and MARK at the absolutely worst times I guess. For LIDR specifically, I bought a call contract as it was going up and it immediately tanked (my contract went down 55% in seconds). Then it gradually declined to around 70%/80% I put in a tiny amount into IRNT, which dropped 25% afterwards, and also into AMC (my contracts for that are now at a 90% loss) I guess a good rule of thumb is: Options trading is not for me, because I'm terrible at it.
I don't really like the Tailwind team. Not sure if they closed any other SPAC yet. And they couldn't close TWND. They are the cheapest tho. There is also the CFIV team which closed a few SPACs but they were pretty terrible (LIDR, VIEW).

PSFE and MVST at very attractive pricing rn. But this is a public service announcement for the lidar gang, MVIS and LIDR--a lot of funky movement of late (just look at the LIDR candle from yesterday before quick suppression following $15 price target). More volume in these could make for some major tendies.
Ngl today was the best single trading day I’ve had in a while, pulled in $5k booked profits and it was my birthday to boot. Where the fuck is the LIDR guy; I fuckin love you man. Sold the last of my calls when they were up %1280. My single biggest one day option hit ever.
Does anyone have any thoughts on $OUST? I’m heavily interested in the future lidar technology, and it’s looking to me like $OUST is in a great position to be an industry leader with their digital lidar in a few years. They have a fantastic team that they’re putting together after the acquisition of Sense Photonics. They just added the CEO of Mercedes-Benz Trucks to their board, and they are currently the only publicly traded company that produces digital lidar which is far less expensive, has more applications, and is more scalable than the analog lidar of their competitors. Im currently down a decent amount with an average of $7.56 a share on this stock, but I still believe I will do well in the long term. Anyone else have any opinions on $OUST or any other lidar stocks? (Ex. $AEVA, $LAZR, $LIDR, $VLDR, $INVZ, and $MVIS)
I am a bot. You submitted a picture of a banned ticker, LIDR. This check will fire if you included unnecessary pictures that have bad phrases or a bad crop with news about cryptocoins, for example. Repost with the useless pictures omitted if you did that. Yell at /u/zjz if it's above 1.5 billion-ish market cap and not related to crypto/pennies/OTC/SPACs.
