Brought to you by the same guy that sold a limited run of flamethrowers, shot a car into space, named his son XÆ12-Mk7 or whatever the fuck, openly manipulated the crypto market (and Tesla share price) and then offered to buy fucking twitter just because he got off to seeing "haha Elon u so cray 😜" under every one of his tweets. Now y'all are surprised this man's acting out when something doesn't go his way, SMH my head. This guy has always been (at the very least in recent years) an attention seeking man-baby. Great businessman and entrepreneur, and awesome publicity stuntman, but a man-baby through and through.
I have that on my watch list. I keep two portfolios, a larger one which is index funds and a few sector ETFs, and a smaller one which I use for individual stocks that I like, and the occasional speculative play. I'm considering putting SMH in the larger portfolio, I'm bullish on it over the next decade or so for sure.
I'm a relatively new investor, so I'm still excited by markets, so I put in a little every few days--every month I put a total of 3K, but I give myself the discretion to time the market on an intra-month basis. I'll admit the process is unscientific and haphazard. I try to prioritize index funds (VTSAX/VTIAX/SMH/AVUV) and a handful of core blue chips. But I'm only buying, buying, and buying, and currently everything is on sale, so I am not too worried about not fully optimizing the whole process. (One day today I bought LOW, another day AAPL, two different days MSFT, ...)
“Take the money. Leave the blame.” This comment is fucking top tier cringe. The worst take imaginable, yet you say it with a dunning Kruger level of confidence. You’re talking like some wise sage when it’s obvious you made 0$ on GameStop and a bunch of idiots who also made 0$ think this is a good take. SMH.
Awesome! Glad I'm in the right direction then. I'm curious on the SMH allocation tho, if its redundant or not. The ASML & AVGO holdings is what attracted me to it. SCHD has a much higher dividend yield tho, and I'm wondering if I shouldn't just take the SMH allocation and split it between the other 3.
>Everything is in vgt, vti and schd. What am I doing wrong? You are doing right with VGT, VTI..etc, but the second line (thinking) is wrong. World will not come to an end with 18% S&P down and 30% Nasdaq down. This is the opportunity to buy at dip. See the 89 year old warren buffet, I am amazed to see his timing of PARA (viacom) purchase at $26.44 which is exactly the bottom on May 12th. You should learn that bottom or possible bottom is attractive to buy. Most of my learning is from warren buffet, Seth Klarmann..etc and my YTD is 6.25% as of date. (of course, I have special one in my favor), still I am 60% invested in VGT, SMH, QQQ etc.
Good time to buy SMH if you like semiconductors, or QQQ/VONG if you like tech weighted ETFs. If you want to focus on particular stocks, the choices are endless. A lot of folks on here like GOOGL, AAPL, MSFT, DIS, & NVDA at current prices.
Scaled into full size GOOGL and NVDA put credit spreads. XLC + SMH showing signs of 1) positive divergence, 2) capitulation volume, and 3) higher low. Also VIX and TNX showing buying exhaustion which is beneficial for equities. $TICKS also showing signs of buyers stepping in. Don't buy calls, instead sell premium. Now we wait.
Whelp. Scared money don’t make money. Dang what a dip and what a comeback on so many of my coveted tickers Friday from 3-8. SMH. Ah well. Might not have been a dead cat and I will be ok either way. Still on the sidelines. Have plenty of risk, so I will just shrug my shoulders and say we’ll played to those who caught it. 😉
Thanks I feel shocked and when I do the calculations I have no idea why I have only a thousand dollar difference between checking out today and working until I am 70 years old. I am going to have to hire a professional for fucks sake. Every single matriarchal female has not lived past 64 due to pancreatic cancer. My ma, my gramma, and my great gramma all succumbed. I have no illusions despite my (now understandable) foray into Syn bio. I hope to check out of work life soon and I cannot believe my luck finding r/Spacs and getting some long overdue financial literacy. SMH. It’s like a whole new world of freedom from stress. Which might seem completely hilarious and ludicrous, but I’m hardened in a weird way. Like a soldier. Ya simply could not have convinced me that I would be totally ok with losing a month’s salary in day, gaining three months salary four days later and being like: this is ok, I have three years to let it unfold and or bail if it goes south. I am sure I am not the only person who has been shocked by their personal perspective being radically altered by their specific behavior in SPACS. The only thing that scares the crap out of me is the fact that come Q4 we are going to be looking like SAINTS. 😂😂😅💪🆙 today is not our day but our day is coming, IMO
This remark literally shows you know nothing about how marijuana is farmed or the people that farm it correctly. SMH. a tomato plant really Steven.? The black market is not the threat anymore. It barley is anything at the moment. Most people can’t even give there crop away. Ya this might sound great nice right fuck those low life’s taking all the easy money right lmao. But what about the legal farmers that got shit on had to pay millions in taxes and fees and I guarantee worked more than 40hrs of hard farming work a week. And can’t w sell the crop even legal. Who’s to blame for that? The black market? Hard to blame this on the black market when at the moment it’s at a standstill not even affecting the legal market. It was a set up to make millions in fees and taxes for California only to have there farms shut down.
Ya and it took me a while to figure out that they must have banned talk about crypto because they had all these weird ways of spelling it( to get around the censorship) Lololol. At first I thought: gee, this is some kind of new crypto I have never heard of, cool, learning! Then, I was like these investing numbskulls cannot even spell properly! And their misspellings are elaborate! SMH Lol. Then I was like: oooh. Never mind 😂😅
I'd honestly wait until inflation is at least back under 5%. Let the Fed see that the smaller hikes are working. Mitigate some risk. I still think we have a ways to go down in the meantime. After that, DCA into VOO or QQQ, and maybe a pick a sector or two, find a low-cost ETF, and DCA into that too. I personally still like SMH, and it's been beaten to shit, so when this event is over you should be able to get a great price on it.
Where do you people work. The wage at my establishment is far below cost of living so why would or should it stop rising? The financial give backs from the 2009 crash are still giving the corporate greedy windfall record quarter after quarter! We never received the thanks and were never made whole again for participating in the most patriotic act of saving our economy after the same greedy tyrants destroyed it! We are do for another disaster accept this save will not be on the average American alone because they never gave the money back to the American workers so that we could give it up again! If we had the proper pay the economy would be better simply due to the fact that most poor and Middle class people spend not hoard like the rich and glutinous! SMH Where are all the decent thinking human beings at? My God we are in too deep! Government should not be FOR SALE!
You're right, I don't have any idea when this will end. But I don't think it will today, or tomorrow, or frankly this year. I think we're getting a .75 hike at some point this year, and it's going to get worse. I'm also not too proud to admit that I'm a new investor as of last spring, and I parked my cash in some hype rather than value. I don't think the positions I had will be back anytime soon, if ever, i.e. COIN at 250, CRWD at 250, etc. I do have a lot of QQQ and SMH, and I'm not touching those. I'll resume DCAing into them when the inflation numbers begin to ease, or when Russia pulls out of Ukraine and gas prices start to retreat.
Yes. In an attempt to try to understand this vehicle, which admittedly was a bizarre way to enter 'investing,' my learning curve was high. I went full historical in my efforts to comprehend the nature of this specific vehicle. I am now (wishfully) thinking that being able to reconstruct an historically informed idea of pre-euphoria days is the antidote to FUD, and the historical (purist) nature of SPACS contains a modicum of hopium. A smarter player than me would be making a spreadsheet with pre-euphoria correlates to current prices. Alas, all I have come up with on the fly is under 20 cents is probably a good deal. And anecdotally, while Kazakhstan was in shambles, I bought TUGCW at .18 cents-- seemed madcap, perilous, reckless and beyond treacherous at the time. Sold as they timed their merger in the worst moment of SPACS to get to house money free ride. My minnows' portion of 1600, riding for free, warrants are the only green things in my port, even as the coin experiences chaos and some SPACS devolve to 94% of their ATH. SMH. Shrugs shoulders. Also, I am simultaneously delighted and chapped that my first big capitulation--ZNTEW seems to have held up in a shitstorm of an environment. Too bad I bought close to four in the heyday and emotionally didn't understand capitulation. Nothing is certain, but we can all learn. It's for sure a mixed bag. Also, the only reason I have so much cash (85%) is because I wanted to have earnest money liquid for a house buy. Shrugs shoulders. Didn't get a house, but was saved from my own folly on another level. GLTA! Follow your instincts and know that nobody can time this shit.
Of course, ignore the context of my words and criticize my lingo directed at a nonscientific audience...SMH. Breakthrough as in a significant event thag derisks the stock. First tell me which pharma you work for, so I can avoid investing in it.
You work in the pharmacy eh? Im an Associate Professor of Internal Medicine. Do you speak to your lay audience in proper scientific terms? Can you define statistical breakthrough in the context I used? Have you looked at the P values? ../work in a pharmacy, SMH.
[+$15k on baby /ES long position, still holding. Go /ES go MMs probably sold so many $400 SPY and $300 QQQ puts, they are going to most likely going to keep the price at least flat.](https://imgur.com/a/uL7Xlt4) Market is showing signs of bullishness as XLC and SMH have signals of capitulation and positive divergence. Will most likely start scaling into a large NVDA and GOOGL PCS position tomorrow. Also aggressively buying TQQQ, AAPL, and GOOGL shares. [Currently +54% combined accounts year to date since January through this volatility. Shifting to some bullish PCS positions for the next few days](https://imgur.com/a/Arj6h95)
Than my you so much for your detailed reply… I was wondering if there are other specific sector ETFs which are worth looking into.. Recently I came across SMH ( semi conductors ) or energy ETF or gaming ETF … or some other sector ETF ( I can’t think names right now ) … I have read through multiple post in various communities and I get that VTI + VXUS gives us complete list … Just wondering if there are sector wise ETFs..
I already used most of this month's pay so far.... But I just dropped a hundred bucks into both VTSAX and VTIAX, and 3 shares of AVUV. Hoping to build out a portfolio by summer's end with core index funds of something like 45% VTSAX, 20% VTIAX, 10% AVUV, 10% SMH, 15% individual stocks (mostly blue chip).
I follow the fed and inflation. I buy names that I personally believe in and understand AND that the market seems to like. I avoid stocks that just simply aren’t liked by the market, ie the ones that just don’t move despite good news. I am betting the inflation data tomorrow won’t be that bad and the entire market narrative is going to shift to suggest that inflation has peaked and Powell will achieve a soft landing. A few hours ago I actually sold all my qqq and bought meta, Amazon, Microsoft, google, apple, Sony, and SMH. Still holding lots of unity.
Lame… that is so PETTY!!! Compared to secret use of SS sneaking woman AND men into the WH as well as BS abuse of powers. AGAIN, show ANY contrary legitimate arguments against Trump HIMSELF making $ off his position as President!!! You won’t find a single incidence. He used his OWN $ to fight the BS claims against him which AGAIN have no been PROVEN to be Obama and HRC attempts to dispute his campaign which they have as well PROVEN having done on 2020!!! THAT is why countless counties are overturning the election results. I’m NOT a Trump fan!! I’m a democrat actually. But even I can admit it when BS is done. This BS election frauds has been going on since JFK!! And if you took off your “anti Trump glasses” you’d be man enough to see it for yourself!!! SMH
Penny stocks are penny stocks because they are likely to go to zero. You can’t just buy anything and expect to make money. SMH. Do not pick stocks until you know what you’re talking about. Index funds for now. You’re going to lose your ass. Unless you literally have like 10 dollars. Put it all in a penny stock and see what happens. Would be a good lesson for ya.
VTI - 20% VXUS - 20% SMH - 20% TSLA - 10% GOOG - 5% MSFT - 5% DIS - 5% BRKB - 5% KO - 5% V - 5% What do you guys think? Looking to hold long term around 5-10 years or so. I have about another 100% of CoH to average down or buy the bottom.
Yea, you’re not going to get anything out of these Reddit posts but people who know everything about the market. Sounds like you have a plan and sticking to it. I’m in, or watching the same tech sectors as you, just etfs. QQQ KWEB BUG SMH IWM
To be fair, the typical expense ratio for ESGs isn't that bad: > The Morningstar report says investors in sustainable funds are paying a “greenium” relative to investors in conventional funds. The study found a higher asset-weighted average expense ratio for environmental, social and governance (ESG) funds (0.61%) compared with their traditional peers (0.41%). [Source](https://www.planadviser.com/morningstar-finds-esg-funds-expensive-conventional-funds/) So we're talking 0.6 vs 0.41. People used to be paying way higher fees in the past, and now it looks like everyone's fee is gradually coming down. Sector ETFs like SMH have expense ratios like 0.35. So yes, it is a scam, but there are way bigger scams in the financial sector in my opinion.
Lol my wife is Canadian and anyone who thinks it’s much better up there is uninformed. Try waiting 4 weeks for an appointment with a gynecologist while the tumor found on a pelvis ultrasound grows. And then who knows how long until the surgery. And then when your treatment options run out they tell you you’re done whereas here they will try other drugs and trials. SMH.
