$PYPL 2022 they will bring to market great rewards for using their digital wallet, Stable Coin in development, it would amp up their ability to offer even more incentives. Long term goal is to become the platform agnostic payments super app of the western world.
Meme stocks? ROKU, PYPL, Dis, and PENN? They were all revenue producing, profitable companies that were growing when I bought them last summer. Options? I was only selling covered calls on stock I owned, with strikes above my cost basis to make some premium. And didn’t start out using margin. Just kept buying the dips to average down to try to exit my decreasing positions sooner once they started going down. I just bought high growth stocks at the wrong time, and held like crazy thinking they would go back up because I didn’t want to take large losses. Ended up taking larger loses though. But didn’t know that at the time. Hindsight is 20-20
What if PYPL goes to $70 next week? you keep your $0.80 premium or whatever but lose 3 dollars in stock price, but now your "hole" is PYPL at $70 and cost basis at $239.20. What if PYPL goes to $80 next week? You either choose to get assigned, thereby losing $160 per share, or you spend more money to buy back the call, then your "hole" is PYPL at $80 and your cost bases is like $242. I am in the same boat, I'm long 1 contract of PYPL at $235 cost basis, I just sell 30 delta calls weekly and if I get assigned, I'll just chalk it as a loss in my books. It sucks, but you can't win every bet

if you lost 70% of your account value hopefully you learned something. that is an absurd amount of value to have lost. The S&P 500 is down 11% from the last year. Basically to be that bad you have to have really tried to invest in speculation only, non recognizable stocks, meme stocks, etc. You have to recognize when something is a lost cause and cut the losses before it's too late. The red flags usually show waaaay in advance but here's some general advice. First of all, do you actually understand what the company you invested in does? Like TRULY understand what the company does, not just "oh well they do this" and you can't describe what the thing they make is or how it's useful? It really has felt like a ton of people who don't understand tech started overrating stocks without even understanding what the company actually does. A great example is the recent Snowflake IPO. This company was HEAVILY overvalued and I knew it when it went public. That's because it had a ton of buzzwords around what kind of company it was, what it did, people didn't understand though. They saw "cloud data company" and assume "oh this must be a good company". But what even is a "cloud data company"? First of all Snowflake likely doesn't even have their own cloud, they probably use Amazon's or Microsoft or someone else's. Second of all, as someone that actually worked with Snowflake in a professional setting, like actually met with one of their engineers and worked with a customer that was looking to integrate Snowflake with my company's product at the time. Snowflake is literally a database. Now in what world is a company that solely makes a database worth the insane evaluation that it was given when it IPO'd? Then you have to look at what happened since, well it went up with everyone else and now it's down to half the value that it IPO'd for. So once again take a chance to really understand what the company you invested in actually makes, understand what their true value added to society is. Take a second to think about, who is their primary target consumer, are they B2B, are they retail, what is their primary subsection of the market they target? Don't invest too much into a single sector of the market, don't over invest in tech or retail or food services, find a way to spread to multiple sectors. Also look at the historical data of the company, see how it has grown over the last few years and truly understand if the growth makes sense. I will say though, of the stocks you picked I would've held onto DIS and not pulled out so quickly. If you look at DIS historical evaluations they have essentially topped what their current stock value is in more normal market settings. I never liked PYPL, their product just seems too easy to replicate and has too many competitors. They're essentially competing with banks. They're just the middle man to me, not worth investing in. PENN, never invest in gambling stocks, these guys literally want to profit off other people's addiction and stupidity, you probably would've been better off taking the money you put into the stock and putting into bets on their platform. ROKU, this company has been around for years and I've seen their product and always thought it was a piece of trash, always felt like Amazon and Google had released better products to compete in their area. They always felt like an "RC Cola" type of company. Obvious hype machine stock that really you should've avoided and hopefully you understand why.
So you think it would be better for me to wait the 30 days and then buy back into ROKU, PYPL, and DIS instead of staying in the ETF’s because they have likely already bottomed, and should go up quicker than the ETF’s? That’s the decision I’m trying to make really. To stay in the ETF’s for the ride back up, or get back into those growth names. And, I used margin on the way down, so to recover as quickly as I dropped, I should probably use margin on the way back up also. The covered calls I do are normally safe because I saw them with a strike price over my cost basis. And what I make from the covered calls normally pays for my margin interest, so I’m getting to use the margin for free.
Spy 40% VTI 30% VYM 20% TARK 10% I just switched to this portfolio construction after losing about 70% of my account value in the last 8 months from holding ROKU, PYPL, PENN, and DIS. I finally realized the losses in those this past week, and switched to the above setup.
PYPL - Most used fintech app w/ Venmo and integrated through many businesses as the perfected method of payment. Still has growth ahead with the best chance at their super app being a success. BA - they may be 2nd but they will inevitably come back as the industry is a duopoly. META - who gives a shit about the metaverse is right but their advertising model prints. Buying a platform that so many people use EVERYDAY with more room to monetize on the user trading at 13 times earnings is a STEAL. DIS - by far the best entertainment company in the world with one of the best moats in the market. Not gonna let the a guy who clearly “trades” (assuming based on username) shit on quality long term investments on VALUE.
I was talking about how PYPL and SQ were among the most mentioned stocks. It seems the majority of the most mentioned stocks on this sub have done poorly over the last 9-18 months. There are dozens but I listed to other example could have been SHOP, NET, CRWD, PLTR, DKNG, and MRNA. Maybe the best performing stocks are the ones not mentioned in these threads.
I sometimes wonder if the best stocks are the ones that never get mentioned here. This constant META dicussion reminds me of when people kept saying PYPL and SQ were buys last year. And that they would disrupt the banks. Now both are down 75-80% of thier ATH.
80% $SCHD, 15% $XLE, 5% $GLD. If you are buying individual stocks be prepared for the potential for 50% drop of any stock you buy from here. We could also get a nice rally once the S&P hits 3500 which is the 200 DMA on the 2 year charts. What am I doing? I bought last week and I will be buying this week. I added to oil stocks $KMI and $GOLD last week. I will be buying the dip on either $COP or $PSX this week. I am also looking at $PYPL, $INTC, and $T. Spread the money out.
Demand will be diminishing in traditional mortal and brick stores where they fail to accomodate the needs of aging population. For instance if AMZN can offer free delivery with drones within 2hrs of grocery orders, why would anyone bother to go to WMT? Same goes for JPM/BAC as compared to SOFI/PYPL/UPST (btw when's your last time you actually needed cash? I haven't touched any cash since late 2019) The demand will soar into those companies who can provide the services while the demand will die for those who can't provide the service. This is all deflationary forces that requires QE and unlimited money printing.
A part from the usual callouts (TSLA, SQ, PYPL, SHOP, TTD, so on and so forth) I’mma mix it up a bit and bring to your attention that Coca-Cola (KO) is near its ATH, PE in the high twenties. Waste Management (WM) same. Even PG. They’re all hella expensive. I guess everyone’s valuing *the moat* very much
There is absolutely nothing unique about PYPL anymore. None. Zero. No one is claiming they will go bankrupt but what about their fundamentals do you think will change over the next year that will make them even remotely close to their competitors?
PYPL has significant competition these days. I rarely use it anywhere anymore. Not only is there Apple Pay and the other phone payment systems including their own versions of storing cash like PayPal and Venmo, but banks have apps as well now to allow people to basically pay each other cash directly with no fees. There needs to be a significant business model change for PayPal to be ready to continue to compete.
PYPL is too large and integrated to disappear. I can't promise it will return quickly, but I can't imagine it going bankrupt. If you pick a point any time now to get into that one I have to imagine there are excellent odds you will make money eventually.
It would take PYPL years to do what SoFi is doing. ​ Also, SoFi isn't getting pounded anywhere.. SoFi is guided growing revenue of 45% this year, neutral contribution by the end of the year, non GAAP profitability by the end of 2023 and profitability in 2024. They are one of the few companies that are raising guidance rather than lowering it.
No. I have shares in both and I don't want that. PayPal haven't posted declining EPS, not really. PayPal are compared to a period before eBay decided to work on their own system. PYPL will return to growth naturally once this comparison passes. ​ SoFi would decline an acquisition attempt either way likely and they don't need PYPL.
If I can brutally honest these will lose you a lot of money. Simplified to 3 sticks that fit your bill but it's big risk big reward (better risk with reward VS your draft I genuinely think IMO): 1. META: Binary risk reward for blue chip. 5-10 yrs of cash burn but zero debt and a fantastic scoop every time you DCA down. 2. PYPL: I hate fintech. I hate PYPL. I think it's a dinosaur but if you truly believe in crypto it's your greatest value play. Undervalued on all metrics; decent dividend; fully pivoting into crypto. 3. ATAI: German umbrella corp focused on shroom meds. It's like a shroom ETF. Very cheap right now and the safest bet so you don't miss anything in the sector.
Ignore that guy META is prob the one pick that makes the most sense here. Just because it's dropped 2% doesn't mean it can't burn a lot more. Zuck said they're burning money for next few years. Binary blue chip with assymetrical risk in 5ish years if not a decade. Get rid of PYPL, tech dinosaur it's gone. MU is very cycleish and their turf is up for grabs when the other guys develop in the hottest space in the modern world right now. Throw those funds into META in like 2 months time maybe. Very controversial opinion if you want it later as well.
1. You're a fucking retard for FOMOing in without doing DD. 2. You're at least smart enough to buy mostly non-trash (at least the ones you listed) and didn't blow it all on 0DTE calls on wish or some shit coin rug pull. 3. Be glad you're 22. 4. Wendys and Buy the dip. Some of that shit like COIN/PYPL might never (or take years) go back up to pandemic highs. That said, you should be really glad you're only 22. $12k might feel like a lot, but if you're 22 then it probably isn't in the grand scheme of things. I'm in my mid-30s and lost like 300-500K in the last 9 months when I can't make that amount back in like a year or two.
Lol not sure it you bought all these at their peak but COIN, PYPL and BABA I would get the fuck out of! Everything else just leave in your acct and don’t look at it for about 2 yrs or not everyday like your probably going. The returns will come back.
You shouldn’t worry too much about Visa, MSFT, AMD, AAPL, NVDA maybe even PYPL. Consider replacing COIN, BABA & ROKU with some more established names such as HPQ (Buffet has been building a position) or INTC. You should focus on names that have positive earnings in these markets.
I'm up 10%ish down from 20% at my high YTD. Though I'm a permabear so this market goes with my thought process. I missed a ton of the March 2020 drop to the highs in late 2021. I lost a ton at the start trying to stay short. I got v. lucky and recovered HUGE when I caught a lot of c r y p t o bullrun in registered accounts via canadian ETFs and stocks like ETHC and HUT. All sold at good profit. As soon as NFTs became a thing I realized the whole sector was going insane. Without those gains I'd be hurting. This time I'm trying to keep my head together. Setting proper stop losses on any entry I go into. -5% the first day I sell immediately and ignore for a week. -10% overall I sell and ignore it for a week. I've tried to buy dips in NFLX and PYPL, U, RBLX, all stopped out and am ignoring them now. I'm in 60% cash but have a lot of SH, PSQ, RWN. And although they aren't great I'm long a ton of GLD and SLV. Personally I want to see the whole market hit the 2020 lows. But I will try and listen to sentiment instead of just hearing what I want to. Right now though trend is bearish, until that trend breaks that's where I'm going to be.
$PYPL this shit trading at '17 prices, but with almost double the revenue and profits. "uwu muh debt", pypl has like $10 bi in cash and $8 bi in debt, do the maths. anyway, thinking about buying puts because the market hates money.
Not always that simple. Some rules-based funds have mandates, stop losses basically. Some funds get margin called. Anyone who was leveraged on tech is fucked right now. Big time. Lots of funds had big positions in things like $FB. Seemed like a pretty safe stock. It's down 50% in a year. Meaning if anyone was 2X+ long they are FKED. PYPL? Down 80%. Fucking Paypal. Who saw that coming last year? It's just a slaughterhouse out there. What if you're 70 and you have 80% of your net worth in stocks? You gonna go get a job? At some point these guys need to de-risk or they run the chance of being homeless.
