Long term I hold the whole market. For short-term taxable fun: I focus on asset allocation and sectors, and select for quality and value within. Financials were highly undervalued for a while, still decent. Communications, RE, and cyclicals are still quite undervalued IMHO. Tech will have great opportunities. I already like MSFT et al., for those more growth oriented and sensitive to interest rates I'll wait a bit. Once that happens, NET, SHOP, ZS, and others show some promise. I like NVDA and NFLX, though they've already risen quite a bit from their nadirs. As cash flows back into riskier items, health care and utilities will underperform quite a bit. Style-wise, small and value looked amazing for a while, now plainly good. Growth presents isolated opportunities. Personally, energy is just a big ball of uncertainty now, and seems to have always been more contingent on geopolitics and weather than fundamentals. Internationally, I like most of the far east. Europe will obviously look good eventually, the question is where the bottom might be. I don't like bottom-timing so I have slowly added small hedged positions. I tend to think EM is primed to really perform well once current morbidities finally relent. I'm staying away from RE for a while longer. That market moves slowly.

I’m largely shifting my portfolio away from tech (except some Canadian tech and APPL, MSFT, AMZN) and into Canadian blue chip dividend growth stocks suck as RY, T, CP, SLF, BAM, BEP etc. I will hold some higher risk stuff but as a smaller part of my overall portfolio.

Right but look at them now, one of the most powerful iGPUs on the market which is a stepping stone towards their own top of the line discreet graphics cards BUT they don't really market to custom builds the way PC does. Two things here - long term business strategy says it's good to have competition between suppliers even if short term costs more or hurts sales. And, in the meantime, it's a perfect justification for in-house R&D and production. Where it's hard to take on the best in the market, setting sights on 3rd or 2nd best is realistic enough that it gets the ball rolling to try to take over that top seat after enough smaller success. So yeah, spite may have played a role, but deciding to take on the manufacture of their own tech is what I believe the major motivator was in that decision. Just happened to be a good time to do it. Like Elon and Twitter acquisition/TSLA stock offloading, Gates' divorce and MSFT, or Bezos and the same. It was perfect cover for making a business move discretly.

This analysis is based on the current option open interest. With that option open interest, it calculates portfolio-level greeks--notably Delta and Gamma. More importantly, once the portfolio level greeks are established, I can now simulate the change in greeks at different price points. From there, I can find the price levels where portfolio-level gamma is the highest, and the portfolio-level delta is close to 0. For some tickers, the underlying price reacts strongly off of delta neutral, gamma max, and sometimes both. It's the reaction off of these price levels in the past that is being used to drive trading signals. The plays and target entry prices given are calculated using a binomial option pricing model that reflect the expected size and duration of the reaction from gamma max or delta neutral. A lot of these plays are profitable by underlying moves in stock. The best plays benefit from the directional move as well as the increase in IV. # Notes - Something to give you a new wrinkle * If the price has moved past the entry price, exercise caution. Something changed between the time these plays were generated and market open. * Look to sell half your position on a double, and freeroll the rest to exit at your discretion. * I tend to risk up to 1% of my total capital on any trades I take. If my conviction is lower, I'll only allocate 0.5% or even 0.25% of my capital to the trade, and dollar cost average in. * The trades were calculated before market open, and so are based on information up to yesterday. Keep that in mind when deciding to enter well after the fact. # FAQ - Because others have already asked. * These plays are mostly puts. Are you a gay bear? * No. It so happens that the companies have had some recent run-up which implies they are overextended. These trades are primarily some form of mean-reversion either toward or away from an important price level. * Are you entering all these plays? * No. There have been a dearth of plays in the WSB morning talks, and so I opened up my bag of tools slightly wider to point out more plays with a probable edge to help lead apes to more gain porn. Go through this curated list of plays, pick the ones you like based on whatever additional analysis you use, and get that gain porn. * You mentioned a new play on the same ticker in the past. What does that mean? * The new play should replace the old play. The old play is likely now invalid and if you haven't entered in, don't chase the price. Remember that a new day's worth of data has been produced and the newer play reflects that data, the older play does not. * Where are the crayons? I only see words. * Click the links above. * Have you back-tested this? * Yes. Results show a moderate Sharpe Ratio (1.7), with an expected win rate of 63% of trades (7% margin of error) * What is the historical performance? * The realized Sharpe Ratio is 1.85 with a 67% win rate. Based on the trade performance so far, there is a 95% chance the expected win rate will be between 49% and 72%. (Stats as of 2022-10-28)

Why are you excluding people with less than 25k? What you're doing is not any smarter or better than what they're doing. I wasn't buying single stocks until my account was around 250k, and they were stocks of solid profitable companies (MSFT around 2010). What you guys are using as your primary investing strategy (actually day trading, but you think you're investing) if something someone with a big account should do with a small fraction of his portfolio just for fun.

I've decided to cut my stake of ATVI Jan 2024 $80 leap calls by about half. There is no actual logical reason to stop the merger, but I think there is increased risk of a political interference US showdown. My opinion on the two warring factions being: 1. The FTC chair, [Lina Khan](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lina_Khan), known for 'Amazon's Antitrust Paradox'. She is backed by the Elizabeth Warren far-left wing of the dems. For reference, Warren recently popped out the [Anticompetitive Mergers Act of 2022](https://www.warren.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Summary%20of%20Prohibiting%20Anticompetitive%20Mergers%20Act.pdf) featuring such illogical never-gonna-pass-things like banning all mergers over $5B. 2. The 2 Democratic senators of Washington State: [Patty Murray](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patty_Murray) and [Maria Cantwell](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria_Cantwell). Washington state being the home state of Microsoft, who employs a lot of voters, whereas Sony HQ is located way outside Voterville. Even if Dems take Georgia to get 51 total senators, those 2 Wash senators would still have the swing vote on omnibus bills, to make their support conditional on MSFT/ATVI merger approval. They have both advocated for MSFT in the past. The logical approach would be to force MSFT to guarantee crossplatform games for foreseeable future, but I feel logic seems to give way to political gamesmanship. My impression is that Buyden would have to try to appeal to both wings of his party. So illogical things happen, with the FTC suing to put in an injunction to stop the merger and then possibly drag it out past my Jan 2024 call date.

Nobody's going to know what you mean by "this example" without it. Closing a position does not require "collateral." Are you sure you currently have open a broken wing butterfly on MSFT 12/16 with strikes 230/235/240? In a butterfly you should have *two* of the middle-strike shorts. My guess is that you have entered this order erroneously; it is buying to close only one of those two, and would leave you with an open 235 strike short put, which would require $23,500 buying power ("collateral" in Robinhood's nonstandard terminology.)

Your entire "DD" sounds like you just discovered Steam, or you are bagholding one of the companies. Steam is a direct competitor to Microsoft Store, I don't know how you think MSFT would benefit from it when Microsoft Store is doing so shit that MSFT gave up and listed some of their top games like Microsoft Flight Simulator and Minecraft Dungeons on Steam. NVDA is going to eat shit next quarter, their 4000 series aren't flying off the shelf because of all the scandals and shitty engineering, scalpers are struggling to get rid of the 4000 series cards they hoarded. EA and ATVI are some of the most hated gaming companies for consumers on steam, and their event sales are usually one of the lowest. EA is carried by Apex, and ATVI by COD. Both's recent future guidance is dog shit and was already talked about recently. PS5 is doing so bad that SONY went back on their words and started listing console exclusive on PC. Also, Steam is essentially a gamers' equivalent of booze and hoes, top selling games are either triple A games by a big publisher, porn games, or skimpy weeb games by Koei-Tecmo/Capcom/Square Enix. [Top 5 games with the most concurrent players are literally f2p on cosmetic/battle pass system](https://steamcharts.com/).

One of the big boys will go bankrupt. AAPL MSFT GOOG AMZN

The brutal thing is the longer patty g is there the longer we see that his plan is just the plan INTC has always had. It’s wild people still have so much faith. The reason Nadella and Jobs saved MSFT and AAPL is because they transformed both businesses. Patty G hasn’t transformed a thing. INTC is still heading in the same direction it has for years. INTC will still be a force for generations. The US government and economy require it to be. But like, CSCO is still a force. It’s just down 40% this century.

Very awesome calculator! I’m delving back into programming some time in the near future and this gives me some inspiration on what I can attempt to make. You’re not lying about Netflix stock, I remember the price around that time you mentioned and just couldn’t stomach the traditional financial analysis n that company. A friend had shares in NFLX and CMG and all I could do is watch them climb while I was in traditional stocks like XOM, GE, MSFT, etc..

>These stocks have massive growth trajectories I thought the moral of the recent earnings season was that AMZN, GOOG, MSFT, etc. can't post huge growth every year forever?

You expect MSFT to get ahead in cloud soon enough? You must not know much about cloud / tech / software. What on EARTH are you basing this statement on? Some seeking alpha article?

I'll sometimes trade SPX/ES like that but I've found the levels have to be pretty precise and its super easy to get fucked. I happened to catch that move around 11:25 but I took MSFT puts off of it rather than SPX. Look up Adam Mancini, he has a daily newsletter of levels that are really helpful. Overall though you need to catch the move past it with volume, thats the key piece in the trading formula. I COULD be rich as hell if I took my trades and let them go all day, like when I sell them and later see they are up 500%, but I don't because I see green and I want to take it. As you grow you learn to leave a little to get max profit, but for now its better to just be patients with entries and quick on exits. What led to me really becoming better was getting out once I'm down 6-8%. Its a tight stop BUT I can re-enter a position if I turned out to be right and my losses are nothing.

I would buy VOO or QQQ. I wouldn’t risk individual stocks at your age and experience unless they are the top blue chips (MSFT, GOOG, VISA etc). You have enough time that for now a diversified fund is the best base to start with.

This is very true. The valuations of companies like PG is just absurd right now. Retail investors dumped tech stocks in Q2 and loaded on value / dividend stocks, making them overvalued in the process. At the moment most people only talk about dividend stocks, while 1 year ago they were only talking about how tech stocks could only go up. Even freaking tobacco stocks are doing well this year… Dividend / defensive stocks will be the next ones going down. Personally I am buying blue chip tech names right now, like GOOGL, MSFT, META (surely a more aggressive bet), AMZN. I am Also dipping into QQQJ (mid cap tech etf) as it has crashed more than 30% from ATH. I would love start building a solid position in SCHD but I am convinced there will be better entry points in the future. The market is simply very irrational in the short term. It is acting as if META and GOOGL business is doomed, while pricing staple stocks as if they were high growth. I always try (but it is very hard) to do the opposite of what the trendy topics are.

"Defensive" stocks like healthcare and consumer staples and discount stores have some absurd valuations, if you ask me. People cry that tech like MSFT and GOOGL have lofty valuations for their P/E of 20 - 25, but are cool buying COST and UNH at 40+. They despise oil companies for their supposed immorality, but invest in pharma and third-party medical insurance companies which are probably the major culprit in American debt problems and corrupt nutrition and medical research. The stock market is an overvalued cesspool. As of today, I like some BDCs that distribute real money, and whose value is not some fairy dust fantasy from economics textbooks. And I'm getting close to liking some of big tech stocks again, like MSFT and GOOGL, even if I hate their companies. Corporate bonds have some good deals still.

AMZN. Their PE ratio is crazy high. Any deviations from their growth is going to hurt them bad. I expect MSFT to surpass them in cloud soon enough. Once the market gets even an idea that MSFT is ahead of them in cloud it’s over.

I don’t think even that is true about price considering MSFT stock price is currently ~$100 or 60% higher than AAPL. That doesn’t mean that AAPL is underpriced or priced less than MSFT

Big Tech has lost $7 trillion in market cap this year and the bleeding for META GOOG AMZN MSFT and TSLA is not going to stop anytime soon. AAPL remains the beast in the arena and their ATT privacy changes have and will keep META and GOOG in the mud with no traction until mid 2023 if they are lucky. Buckle up buttercups…it’s gonna get bumpy🙈🤡

Buying company’s you understand is such a important one. It’s why I don’t own any software or cloud stocks besides the big few like Goog/Amzn/MSFT. A lot of companies sell on people who don’t know any better and read the investor call and buy because of buzz words like Ai

There's cloud computing and then in mentioning CRWD there is cloud security, not exactly the same thing. Personally I am sure cloud and cloud security is a major growing industry... but I have zero confidence in any particular stock being the right choice, especially in the near term. I have CIBR, the cloud security ETF because I'm betting on the industry as a whole rather than one company. (If a gun was to my head and I had to choose one, I'd pick PANW.) As for cloud itself, there isn't a great ETF, but I'm fine with just having my own basket of MSFT/GOOGL/AMZN. If you want a smaller company with high potential, consider ANET.

Nope. Means nothing except .... MSFT AAPL GOOGL and NVDA WILL be higher in share price than they are now. Always happens.

What is in your opinion the best cloud computing stock to buy now/in the next few quarters and why? Am aware that AWS, Google Cloud and Azure are probably the best&also most widely used cloud services out there (a large % of portfolio in GOOG, MSFT) but I am more interested in smaller, growing tech firms - Cloudflare, Snowflake, CRWD, etc.

Apparently it's not just Sony fighting the MSFT-ATVI deal. Google is pissed because it is claiming Microsoft is degrading game pass quality of chrome is used. Biden has a progressive until in office at the ftc. This thing is looking increasingly fucked.

Is MSFT going to get ATVI or not?!

Mentions:#MSFT#ATVI

Quick question if I may about the ATVI - MSFT deal. Let's just say that the deal is actually approved ultimately, would shareholders of ATVI get the option of converting their ATVI shares to MSFT shares on that day? For example, if MSFT was trading for $285 per share at that time, you'd get 1/3rd of a share of MSFT for every ATVI share you had. Or, are you required to just get a cash settlement in your account, and that's it? Reason I'm asking, is because it seems sort of weird to me that recent buyers of ATVI would basically be forced into a short-term trade. I know the exact same thing happened to recent investors in Twitter. They had no ability to continue holding the investment. I'm just wondering if an ATVI shareholder could continue to hold this investment without generating a taxable event

FTC suing to block MSFT acquisition of ATVI. That arb play not going to work I guess. Intrinsic value of ATVI is $47.37 right now. Would be nice to sell at 90 at that valuation but it may not happen. Europe hasn't even done their own due diligence yet if Im not mistaken.

What’s the deal with MSFT?
