Good question, I think they'll have great earnings no matter what, they're a massive memory provider and AI requires A LOT of memory. I think they supply a shitton to NVDA. The only way they fall is if their guidance is off which shouldn't happen.

Goddamn, that's the exact same play I was trying to make today. Only I got 10/20 contracts filled, and since I'm in daytrade penalty, I couldn't fill the other 10. Then I sold for a mere $120 profit. I mean, I'm not mad; I made money. But if I had waited 2 hours, I would have made a LOT more money. But you know what? It's better than losing money.

.8% isn't bad... But obviously you can get a lot cheaper with indexes. One advantage of the guided investing is you may have to communicate with someone to make a buy/sell decision. I definitely have known people who made a LOT more money using investment firms that charge high fees than they would have made in a low cost index just because of the inertia of a managed account that makes you far less likely to mess with it than in an account where you can log in on any given day and make a spur of the moment decision. That said, it would be extremely hard to beat just leaving it in the ETF indexes you suggested for the next 25 years. If you leave it there.

Not necessarily, there are a LOT of Gamestops, due to domestic migration there are likely some stores in areas that no longer fit their optimal demographic profile. That likely isn't the reason stores that will be cut need to be cut, the reason you gave is that reason. Is your 10-15 sticking your finger in the air or analysis based?

I enjoy their write ups on economic data releases. You really have to have your own filter turned on to tune out their political injections, which is A LOT. But I have to give them their dues that they have been shitting on the BLS employment data since Jan and recently I have started to hear a lot of "normal" finance pros, including JPOW on Wednesday, question the employment data.

Dude… anecdotal? They are flashing it up on every commercial and ad now and have been for at least 7 months. The abdominal paralysis is “anecdotal”, but the “may cause pancreatitis” is fully acknowledged on every piece of marketing material they have, and it isn’t just happening to one group of users and can’t be predicted. It’s happening a LOT and those who received the medication in the first year or so of approval were never warned. Now all are. My point being exactly what you said… you’ll making nothing off of fluoroquinolones no matter how great they are because they cost about 1 cent to make and sell for about 9 cents. But at least they are still on the market. A drug pulled from the market entirely sells for… let me check here… oh that’s right. $0.00. As always… YMMV.

That will not happen. Study what the Greeks are.

Current ceo has done all the right things and is setting the company up for a decade of success Intel is at a bottom right now All the bad news is priced in and they have a LOT of room to run once the investments made start producing results which we should start seeing progressively with the next earnings reports and then Perpetually for next 4-5 years If you are a value investor that wants a low Risk and steady increase year over year this is the place to be Even In a sell off or down market Intel can still rise as cash flow will go into what has room to run vs what has already topped The most comical thing to me is when people talk about figure chip market share like Intel will somehow go to zero and disappear It’s like…. Do they not see the multibillion dollar deals ink’d for manufacture plants, give subsidies and national security. Newsflash people the US government will never allow Intel to fail as long as it’s the only possible answer to increasing chip production inside the US

I earned some from that previous squeeze a few weeks ago. But SINCE THEN the hype around the stock has increased A LOT. Tell me why you don't see it spiking again? Can you counter my points of data?

It was unique, frankly, for reasons that shouldn’t be entirely celebrated. It was a boys club. It felt like a fraternity house. People openly drank in their office throughout the day. Conference rooms had middle aged white men screaming at each other over design decisions. There was absolute candor at every turn, for better or worse. That corporate culture would NOT fly today. And it has a LOT of negatives. Candor is good, in a vacuum though. I’ll say that. Recommend you look up Dave Plummer’s YouTube channel. He’s a former SWE at Microsoft who played a prominent role in Windows development. He goes in-depth about a lot of Windows-specific stories from the old days. :) I worked on the NT kernel (traditionally tied to the Windows Server product capabilities, but after XP, Windows was all on the NT kernel). I can answer any specific questions if you have them. WRT how long the returning folks stayed - most were retired again by 2012 or so. I imagine there’s a number still there today. Hell, Dave Cutler is in his 80s and still writing OS code for Xbox.

QMCO (listed here) reports on Monday after the close. Interesting thing to note here: Two weeks ago QMCO reported that as a result of a year+ long audit the company will be re-stating the past couple of years earnings. Which historically is bad news, but in this particular case QMCO said the re-statements will actually be re-stating earnings HIGHER. So this Monday after the close, in addition to the Q report, QMCO will also be positively revising prior years earnings. Which can't be viewed as anything other than good news; and especially so for a stock that has previously traded well into the teens but currently trades around 60 cents. Also, I keep seeing more and more articles about the quantum computing (QC) sector being the next big trade, as QC is an important next step in the further development of AI. So it seems to me there exists a LOT of upside potential on a beaten down and as-of-yet undiscovered stock like QMCO, because even a crazy 25x higher parabolic bounce from its current price would simply put the stock back to the lower end of where it historically traded a few years ago. (And well before the current AI hype we see today.)

I completely disagree with your point of Tesla having no competition. How is that not an emotional statement? They sell electric cars. There are a LOT of other companies that sell electric cars. They used to have a massive advantage when it came to range and charge network. That advantage has dwindled or completely evaporated. The auto pilot nonsense is vaporware. Please don’t tell me it’s just 6 months away. Musk has been saying that since 2012. The point is the stock is falling right now because people like myself realize what’s happening. You’re being blinded by your previous gains. Tesla was a great investment. I disagree it will be going forward. Shareholders voting to intentionally dilute themselves while the stock performance is stagnant is truly mind boggling and part of the reason I’m staying away from Tesla.

I totally aggree with you. AI "god in a box" is closer then people think it is... We got the compute power, at this point its just training over time and removing the bad results/outcomes/hallucinations. The scary part about all of this is that IF we manage to reach a breaktrough in *artificial superintelligence*, the end-consumer will get their hands on it LAST. First all the big players will use it to their advantage and establish financial dominance. (Blackrock, Vanguard, etc.) - We, the people, the individuals get the small bits and bytes, the leftovers, as usual. Nontheless, im very much hyped about the next 10-20 years to see where this all is going. I am following the development every day and i even managed to host ai models myself and use voice cloning, face swaps, lipsync, stable diffusion and chat-agents built with large language models.

> I mean, honestly I just googled the first thing I could find and didn't put a lot of effort into it. It was an honest question at first. That's fair. But, like I said, you have to put it in context with what's going on in the rest of the auto market right now. > man that's some crazy train shit. It may sound like that... but if you look into it, it's not. Like with FSD, most people only hear about the older Autopilot and its issues, and few know the amount of progress that has been made on FSD. Just yesterday, I drove 2.5 hours from one city to another in my state (to look at a house I might be buying)... and it drove the entire way with the only intervention by me was to step on the gas a bit because in one area it was going too slow. It drove the 2.5 hours home and made only one mistake that I had to take over, not for safety reasons but because of a navigation error. That's not "crazy train" that's real-world use. As for the robots, you should check out what the experts are saying as to their progress on that. Admittedly, there is a LOT of competition in that space because whichever company comes up with a generic "worker" robot stands to make trillions.

It started as a spac as a vision from its current ceo Abel. For a long time they talked about being able to achieve continuous 5g connection to cellular devices without any extra equipment or apps to your phone. Only ASTS can operate in this broadband spectrum at the moment. There are other major players who got to market first/faster but it’s not 4/5g and very limiting. Any talk of spacex or gsat should be glossed over at the moment since they cannot achieve what ASTS has without disrupting other frequencies. They just proved this concept a few months ago and att and many other telecoms have invested which has attracted major players since it shows potential value. The last earnings call they announced 5 more satellites which could cover the US without any disruption to cell service and also announced no dilution for at least a year which is huge at this point. There may not even be dilution since other major cell networks like Verizon announced they will use ASTS. Commercially this may be an add on to cell phone plans. Think business folks or those who don’t want to lose cell service. There are also military uses, government uses, etc. sorry it’s honestly a lot to type but some dd will let you see the potential. Basically NO ONE ELSE CAN COMPETE WITH THEIR SPEEDS and to service the entire world it would take A LOT less satellites than any competitor

Buy QMCO; and before the company's Q report next Monday. A couple of weeks ago QMCO announced that after a year+ long audit QMCO will be re-stating the past couple of years earnings HIGHER. (When have you ever heard earnings being re-stating *higher...?*) [https://finance.yahoo.com/news/quantum-announces-timing-reporting-financial-200500412.html](https://finance.yahoo.com/news/quantum-announces-timing-reporting-financial-200500412.html) QMCO is in the quantum computing (QC) sector, which I believe will be the next big hype trade as QC ties directly into the future needs of AI. QMCO has around 800 employees; has been in business for decades; and has annual revenue of around $400M. The stock currently trades at 50 cents, but has previously traded well into - and above - the teens. I expect we are soon going to see a LOT of articles about QC and how it relates to AI, and when this starts happening it means the Big Money playas are poised to rocket the currently beaten down, completely ignored QC stocks multiples higher. Prediction: QMCO - currently 50 cents - will be trading 25x higher by the end of this Summer. (In other words, mid-teens. Which again is where QMCO has previously traded, so hardly an unimaginable price...)

I lost A LOT of money on ZIM during 2022. The dividends come straight out of the stock price, and are immediately taxed 25% as part of Israel divvy tax. It's actually better to sell right before divvy cut-off date then buy back in the next day. Also ZIM has very high exposure to spot rates so if freight rates collapse (which it looks like it might soon, considering retail spending is down and household savings is drying up), this stock will also drop more.

The market is an extremely efficient money extraction machine. It has been tweaked over the course of the last 150 years to sucker in people to siphon money to the top. It's not just a free market with everyone on a level playing field - it's a select few entities that pay media and politicians to sway everything in their favor. They have teams of people who understand the very complex rules and laws, and how to bend and even break the laws if the money gained from said action outweighs the fines, aka cost of doing business. Keep in mind, you have entities with many tens or hundreds of billions, even trillions of assets under management (AUM) that pay a LOT to move things in their favor through various means. They have the finances to push stock prices around as they see fit. Max Pain shouldn't be a thing, but it is. Spoofing shouldn't be a thing, but it is. Slandering companies in media outlets shouldn't be a thing, but it is. So many things contradict the "rules." When the paid media shills do it, that's just reporting on market analysis. When someone like Roaring Kitty simply tells everyone what he invested in, they start throwing the term MaRkEt MaNiPuLaTiOn around.

Ditch them. I left years ago after being talked down to an extremely condescending manner by a customer service rep. Later I also found out that they take significant advantage of rookie traders that do not realize it is an industry standard for trading accounts to automatically pay interest in a MMF. Instead Schwab sweeps it to their subsidiary bank for 0 compensation. Last I checked it wasn't as high as 2022 which was $300B+ but still above $200B. That's A LOT of money that could have earned significant income for people. Makes me sad because I became a customer after post dot com when Chuck was still significantly in control of the company. They were THE pro-retail OG discount brokerage. Constantly pushing for a better retail experience. Now they take the most PFOF, do the shady stuff I mentioned above, have bad service (my experience anyway) and it went downhill. I was a client for nearly 2 decades.

I would disagree. I fly A LOT. Like cross countries trips every other week a lot. Southwest seats are significantly more comfortable. I tend to fly American for first class upgrades though. Southwest is so much more pleasant of an experience. Their employees are much friendlier. American 95% of employees feel like they're just there for the paycheck. Southwest is so much warmer. They should include a first class and only let A listers in or paid people though in my opinion. I would fly them much more. I will say I have had significantly more delays on Southwest than American. American in the last 6 months has been on point. I've had 1 delayed flight in about 30 trips and the delay was 1.5 hours. Southwest is pretty much always delayed at least 15 minutes.

Rate of return on a 20 percent down payment is five times what I would get in the market. Plus where I live, renting is more expensive than buying. If I rented and put the down payment in the market, I would be up a lot but if you calculate return on capital my house appreciation beat the market by a lot. Same with many people. Plus I’d still have a monthly payment renting, which gives me no equity. Currently just through payments my equity is increasing by $1000 a month. You have to remember that you can’t compare directly the rate of return of the market with real estate appreciation because most of the time real estate is purchased with at a minimum 4 to 1 leverage, so we have to multiply returns in real estate by five and then subtract the cost of capital (interest). People like me who have sub 3% loans but saw 8 to 10 percent yearly appreciation beat the market by a LOT

I watched the 98-00 dotcom boom and then subsequent bust. Yahoo! was the big dog back then (not Google -- it was still up and coming). Yahoo finance even had a stock market game (paper trading). There was TONS of hype in the stock market to novices. Which inflated the boom greatly and quickly. You mentioned the recoveries are quicker now. And that is true because in 00-01 we didn't have a Federal Reserve willing to prop up the entire market and keep every company alive once the bottom fell out. A LOT of no value companies (and some higher value ones) went bust back then as a result. As it should be. That's healthy for the market. After 08 the Fed decided to stop letting nature take it's course and intervene wherever it saw fit. So a lot of companies that probably should have died, didn't. They just festered. Today there is even more Fed Res involvement, so my view is there is even less chance of complete disaster from a large company's PoV. Well, with a caveat -- If too many things implode at once, there isn't enough debt to print to save it all. So there is still a chance of a bust followed by a slow recovery. But it would require something rather monumental (China war, China closing exports, Nukes flying, EMPs, allied foreign money etc) to trigger. So I think the US market is safe-ish so long as there isn't a hugeeee sudden upheaval. Even if there is a shock that involves a recovery, it more than likely won't take long like it used to in order to recover. And thats mostly because of the Fed Res printing money (that taxpayers don't have) to keep things alive.

Lol @ "AI Fugazi"! We don't need a self-aware, AGI to see massive benefits from "dumb" generative A.I. It's still allowing us to do many things 10 times faster than we could two years ago. I'm making more money now doing things in hours than I was doing things that used to take me days just a couple of years ago. And the things AI does for me are BETTER than I could do myself! And I just own a rinky dink website/marketing agency. Mega corps are going to leverage these AI systems and save billions (and unfortunately, much of it will be in salaries for labor that's no longer needed.) But that is progress. I get the whole "splash, crest, peak, fall" phenomenon you're describing, but that's presuming there are no more mountains left to climb. Apple built its incredible valuation by fundamentally changing the way we communicate and use computers. But there haven't been any earth-shaking tech debuts from Apple since the iPhone/iPad. All we get now are incremental improvements. Generative A.I. is just the first step in a massive A.I. evolution. Right now we're seeing the beginnings with basic content generation... it can write simple code, copy, generate images, reproduce voices, and even create short videos. Some of it is clearly artificial, but some is indistinguishable from the real thing. It's not perfect, but it soon will be. That's the next small step. Over the next 5-10 years, we're going to see generative A.I. replacing actors, musicians, artists, writers, coders, paralegals, medical diagnosticians... and the list goes on. Virtually ALL customer service will be AI-based. Any simple human job that can be replace by AI automation, will be. That's the next BIG step. Eventually, AI will replace doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, physicists... highly educated and specialized professions. And it still won't be TRUE AI. It will be generative AI, but the algorithms with be hundreds of times more complex, and the datasets won't be limited. AI will have access to the sum-total of ALL information on the internet (unless the government smartens up and starts to regulate the technology, which probably won't happen until it's too late.) NVDA obviously isn't going to be the king forever, but for the next 5-10 years, they (along with the other "magnificent seven") are going to be unstoppable. What happens after I can't say. You can call it it a "bubble" if you want, but it's going to make a LOT of millionaires and billionaires long before it pops. This is not even REMOTELY like the dot com bubble.

Hey, sorry, I was out with the family. I was lucky enough to score a decently paying job for the federal government right out of college in 2009. I was young and making about 45k a year (about $65k in todays dollars). It was a tiered salary though and I got \~8-10k raises for the first 3 years. I sacrificed a ton....I rented a shithole for one year and then bought a foreclosure that needed a complete renovation for $140k after my one year lease was up. I cleaned up one bedroom and one bathroom real quick and immediately started renting it out. I refinanced into a 15 year after I had been there less than a year. In 2014, I moved out of the area and into another shithole (renting out a room for chump change) but I was renting out the entire house I had purchased at that point and just barely covering mortgage payments. But again, this was on a 15 year mortgage. I saved up and purchased a shortsale shithole in 2016. Another complete renovation. By this time, I had a steady girlfriend who moved in (which made the renovations a lot better...she wanted fancier tile and whatnot lol). Now this steady girlfriend is my wife and we just closed on a third home last month that we're moving into. This is the only home that I cosigned a mortgage on and it made things a LOT easier. We're renting out the house I bought in 2016 for about $1100 more than the mortgage payment and we're renting out my original house for $1700 (about $500 over the mortgage) and will have the original one paid off in about a year. Lessons learned - You can do and learn anything. I had no idea what I was doing with the renovations but I was a google fiend. Learn your building codes. Watch youtube. You can buy the tools and fuck up the project 3 times over before it's more than what you'd pay someone else. Plus now you have a skillset to make money with (I do a lot of side work). Listen and trust yourself. I had so many people tell me to sell the first rental. So many people tell me to not rent out rooms. So many people tell me to move into something nicer now that I was making ok money. So many people tell me to get rid of the beater and "treat myself." Those same people are telling me they wish they had a rental or two. Pay half the mortgage every two weeks, rounded up. If you mortgage is $1873 a month, pay $1000 every two weeks. This will shave YEARS off your loan and you're probably already getting paid every two weeks. Invest EARLY. The best time to invest is when you're a teenager. The second best time is today. Take advantage of compounding interest. Make it hurt; sacrifice as much as you can as early as you can. It is so much easier/better to take the foot off the gas later than try and play catch up.

Rates are not high. They are where they should be. The problem is ZIRP caused a LOT of market dislocations and made people believe we need absurdly low rates. CRE will have issues outside of the A class space. Very few people want older buildings. They want the shiny new building to show off. The problems will be here once refinancing time comes. Residential will have problems with all the corporate entrance into the space. Everyone is a corporation nowadays in real estate. If you buy to rent you form a LLC to limit personal liability.

what is the impact of IV on a collar ? I am looking at a collar on GME. The IV is sky high and per that i expect it to bounce around a LOT. What happens to value of the collar if the IV goes down. If the idea is to protect the stock for long term, at what point do i adjust the collar, and how ?

exiting in droves? i did notice a LOT of baby boomers who are literally afraid to invest in stocks. I think they got burned once or twice, went to cash, and NEVER came back. too bad for them. I just made my entire year's salary in a one month run up of NVDA. but i hesitate to recommend stocks to the friends of mine, since at the slightest hiccup they will dump them all again and go hide in a cave

The DTCC steps in and transfers the accounts to a solvent broker. This function didn't exist in the 1920s, which is how A LOT of people got hammered, even though they were not doing any of the risky stuff.

H1N5 is very deadly in Humans. 50% survival. One of the big differences with CoVid, with a natural 98% survival rate. It's REALLY hard to say what a outbreak of H1N5 would do. A lot depends on the parameters. Covid was perfect. (3-8 days to symptoms, asymptomatic transmission. Low kill rate.) All of that adds up to a bunch of infected travelers. And, a lot of unconcerned potential infector vectors. If H1N5 knocks you on your ass in 1 day and kills you half the time, you have a lot less transmission. That's EBOLA. If H1N5 Knocks you on your ass in 5 days and kills you half the time, you have a LOT more scared people. Black Plague. Most of us know how that turned out. So, we don't know the parameters yet. No Human 2 Human transmission.

This is why it is so difficult to win in the long term and mentally its just easier to throw everything in something like VTI. The psychology of when to sell, what to buy etc can be a mental disaster. If you were truly investing price wouldn't really matter to you because you would have conviction that the company you are picking is worth buying and keeping for a very long time. You'll find all kinds of winners on here commenting about their tremendous gains. I just saw one today. Turned $500 into $500,000 by holding apple. You read that and it does suck because in order to get that amount in VTI you are investing a lot more than $500. A LOT more. You'll see the losers too but many are probably not too keen on showing off their loses. r/wallstreetbets is a good showcase for that but here you will see many saying they wish they dropped the individual stocks and just did index investing in the first place.

I bank with Capital One and there is a Capital One Cafe around the corner from me with an ATM I can deposit cash into (with a debit card). There are only about 50 of these cafes nationwide but some cities do offer cash depositing. I bank with Ally as well and use Zelle all of the time. Zelle is available directly through Capital One as well. Zelle actually contracts with a LOT of banks.

Debt is a huge issue BUT , debt went down from 5.7bn in 2020 to 5.1bn in 2023. It’s A LOT of debt still but it’s coming down. High interest rates is not doing them any favors also.

I've been investing for many years. There is nothing wrong with index funds or ETFs or individual stocks. However, it is a LOT more work to pick a single stock. Doing a fundamental and technical analysis on a stock is just the beginning, you also have to look at geopolitical / economic / social aspects of the company and how it fits into the world at large. That said, if I pick one big winner for every 5 or even 10 stocks I pick, I do OK. For example, my current portfolio unrealized returns on a few stocks are: RIVN = down 89%, QS = down 78%, SQ = down 76%, MRNA = down 45%. Based on these four, I'm a terrible stock picker, BUT now I add in NVDA = up 185% and I'm back in the game. Your comment "Now after 4 years of investing...." is an issue for me as I believe if I buy long, I'm in for at least 5 years.

Yeah all I know is there was a LOT of money to be made during the entire COVID and post COVID era when the Fed’s “transitory inflation” approach initially failed. But again, appreciate the reasonable discourse. In the end, I do agree with your overall perspective.

I hate always being so negative on here, but man, I worry about you guys and your positions. Not trying to be condescending, I mean it. Whatever you guys do, don't diamond hand or any of that nonsense. I made really good money in 2021, but would have been a LOT more if I hadn't been greedy and gone all in on that ape shit.

Oh my B homie, didn't realize I was living rent-free in your head. Sorry for keeping you waiting. See the issue with your thesis, is that it's a thesis. For this to be manipulated, it would have to be intentional. So other than random conspiracy theories about how MM's are out to get you, do you have any legitimate proof of that? Sounds like a lot of "that's what they want you to think"-rambling, where "manipulation" is just the response to everything. Idk man, feels like there were a LOT of better stocks to mess with on NYSE if they wanted to purposely screw with people. Better yet, why mess with the NYSE over the Nasdaq? Nasdaq would be where a LOT of the top heavy-weights in the SP and NQ reside, with a 23.4T market cap. So not like it's irrelevant just cause it's "tech and blue chips". Higher daily volume than the NYSE, significantly more active and within 1.5T from NYSE's market cap, so not like it's "small" in comparison. You have your much-craved response, friend. Shed an alternative tear on my behalf.

Not necessarily. A lot of calls will require forced hedging by MMs. There are A LOT of idiots also that probably have bearish spreads and puts that need to hedge or close.

Short to Medium term, I think it's unlikely, and their stock price still has A LOT of room to fall. They are just like FSLY, essentially a CDN company with extras. But their core business is still selling a commodity (CDN service), which means they have the compete on price with razor thin margins. So just like FSLY, they can grow their revenue, but absolutely unable to make good profits.

The reason others are downvoting you is because you have a "gambling mindset". It can be okay if you're younger, but you're potentially losing out on A LOT of money if those don't work out. Buying index funds like VOO now will allow you to start generating compound interest early on. It's really difficult for new investors to see because it's hard to think of life and investing from a birds-eye view. A lot of us have made that mistake. We just don't want younger people and new investors to do the same thing.

I find it a little bit odd how quickly the first whistleblower was listed as a suicide. If the family was hellbent on a murder they would have launched an investigation. But of course, the next assumption would be a bribe or a threat. It seems like the perfect conspiracy theory setup which is why I don't buy it. An actual murder wouldn't have been this choppy with this many people pondering questions. The second death actually seems more plausible because of how cleanly it fell off. But again, I think it that was the only death people wouldn't think twice about it. Boeing has a LOT of whistleblowers and everyone knows about their bad press. Killing a couple off makes zero sense.
