It's a great day for me. My small caps are rocketing (APPS up 10.5%, CLFD +7.5%, NET +6.7%, PSCE +3.2%, AVUV +2.6%, AVDV +1.3%), commodities also booming (XOM +4.4%, CF +3.3%, FCX +2.2%), and Big tech sharing in the fun: GOOG +3.5%, META +2%. So everything that got their ass-kicked the last 2 weeks. Thus, I will be revising up the guidance for my portfolio in the next 8 months. We're starting to see a critical lumbar support at -8%. Hopefully we stay in this dolphin channel for a few more days.

Some people are probably in individual stocks not in the indexes. I dont hold any of these but some examples are TSLA is up 7%, XOM is up 4%, and FRC is up 33%.

Ahh yes you are right. I hadn’t thought about it quite like that. Yes the outs were losing value as XOM kept going up. So yeah the trade actually went the way it was supposed to.

Mentions:#XOM

When you sold a put credit spread and got assigned on the shorts (I would assume early assignment) and still on owed the long puts, the long puts are not considered naked. Therefore, those long puts are actually protection for your $12,000 investment. If the underlying continued to go up, you just lose the puts and it will expire worthless. However, if XOM suddenly went bankrupt within days like SIVB, those longs puts would have saved your $12,000 investment and that is exactly my point of doing spreads. Thank you for being a perfect example of why I advocate for spreads.

Mentions:#XOM#SIVB

I've been assigned on a spread, luckily on XOM so was happy to be landed with the shares, but it wasn't fun to see I was suddenly the owner of 12,000 dollars of shares and still held puts. It was disorientating. I've only done LEAPS on SPY since that!

Mentions:#XOM#SPY

Look at my post history, I try to be helpful as much as possible. There was nothing personal against you. Sorry if it came across otherwise. I know it's difficult to have big losses and not be sure why. You could also just stick with blue chip stocks like XOM and AAPL, a few other S&P or Nasdaq stocks, and put the rest into VOO. That way you have stability from VOO, and you get to pick some stocks you like. That may be the best balance. The speculative ones, I would not put more than 5% of my portfolio in. Your risk profile may be different. Best of luck.

Mentions:#XOM#AAPL#VOO

You're asking for advice while only giving partial details. If you're down that much, OLPX and INNV must be a very large part of your portfolio. since XOM APPL have not done that poorly over the short period of time. We still have no idea what "fashion and real estate" stocks are, so we can only go off the info you posted. There is either a serious unbalance in the portfolio weighting, or the other stocks you hold not mentioned are also low-quality. I'll give you two paths: 1. Sell the penny stocks and just go full yolo wsb-style on options. You'll get rich or go broke, but at least it will be spectacular. 2. Realize you're investing in some extremely risky stocks that have tanked your portfolio and you don't know why. Sell everything and buy VOO.

XOM. I love oil long term and Exxon Mobile is about the best. But, I wouldn't go long oil heading into a recession. The low on oil could be $45-50 barrel which is a ways to go. We really don't know how bad things are going to get yet. For people who love commodities, I think physical gold is the trade this year. Think about something like PHYS

Jon Stewart is such an idiot, this is the same thing people were complaining about oil companies but just look at their profit margins, they’re practically the same as years past.

Agree but how much of the current market valuation had already priced in VC halting in the last few weeks? We basically went from an “oh shit VC is toast” to “nvm”, meaning that until the next FED meeting on Monday we will be in a state of limbo. With the FED backstopping SMB deposits, the risk of most failing in the next few months is basically gone, but that will have MASSIVE macro impacts over the next few years. That being said, the stock market is so goddamn top heavy that none of these VC or crypto banks failing will impact AAPL MSFT AMZN BRK XOM UNH etc unless the contagion spreads to JPM or BAC…

XOM and SOFI calls

Mentions:#XOM#SOFI

The IEA and company is still very bullish about the second half for crude. Here's [their forecast](https://twitter.com/SPGlobal/status/1636336632637915136). The medium to long-term picture hasn't really changed. Lower prices today just means higher prices later. "The IEA sees a substantial oil supply deficit starting in Q3 2023, with nearly 2 million barrels per day of inventory declines in Q4." It just takes an OPEC cut or two and suddenly the market becomes very tight. What the analysts got wrong was how quickly Chinese reopening would ripple into commodity markets. It definitely had an impact on met coal, for example. But it looks like other commodities they stockpiled during lockdowns leading to a weak market now. I'm DCAing into my small cap energy ETF, and I bought a little XOM yesterday, but otherwise I'm just doing nothing. I'm actually not that much of an energy degenerate even though I like to read/talk about it a lot.

Mentions:#XOM

I guess my big tech has been holding me up. A few weeks ago XOM was my biggest winner (+45%). Now I'm only up 19%, and my new biggest winner is now META (+20%). Which, get this, was one of my *worst* picks just a few months back.

**General macro comments**: Atlanta GDPNow still at 3.2% for Q1 2023 real quarterly annualized growth, unchanged from yesterday. Next update is Friday, March 24th. Also, apparently the housing starts was way bigger than expected. I'll just add that it seems that particular statistic is extremely noisy. > Privately-owned housing starts in February 2023 were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,450,000. This is 9.8 percent (+/- 15.5%)* above the revised January 2023 estimate of 1,321,000 That is a 90% confidence interval of [-5.7, 25.3], or statistically indistinguishable from 0. If you look at the other indicators reported by the [Census Bureau Index of Economic Activity](https://www.census.gov/economic-indicators/), housing start estimates have much larger confidence intervals / high uncertainty than the other ones. --- **Useless comments on my portfolio + BTU Update**: What a great day for my big tech holdings. AMD up 7.7%, GOOG up 4.7%, MSFT up 4%, SMH up 4%, META up 3.6%. I will soon be using these opportunities to trim (slightly) MSFT/AAPL/AMD as they are too big of an individual position. I'll move the cash into my small cap value ETFs, or from AMD to SMH. Meanwhile, on the commodity side, yesterday I had went pretty hard on BTU/AMR/XOM/PSCE. Today I added to CF (fertilizer). Some exciting news on BTU is that Investor Relations told some folks that they are working hard to get the surety bond covenants taken care of before March 31st, and at the worst, a little bit into April. A blackout period will start pretty soon (between quarter end and the next earnings report), so they might not get time to start capital returns. But at least an announcement about it will soon occur. Follow @8750Capital and @tradedollarnut on Twitter for more news (you won't find it anywhere else). AMR remains highly undervalued if you want an entry point. It tends to zoom up to $170 then come right back down. Eventually, the math of high met coal prices and buying out 30% of your float will win.

Well several combinations: 1) P/C was 2.5 to 3 the entire last week, 2) sector rotation from XLE, XLF, XLV, and XOM into XLK, XLC, and SMH, 3) critical inflection point. All fuel for short covering. I'm starting to think MR short is negative EV but I'm gonna have to backtest that

Nice. The last two weeks I've been buying nothing but CF/FCX/AVUV/AVDV, and today AMR/BTU/PSCE/XOM as well. (by the way, check out Seeking Alpha's page on AVDV, there was some really nice articles written about it. The case for AVDV is very compelling for a medium/longer run outlook)

If analysts' price targets hold, and multiples aren't reduced, energy still the highest returning sector (projected) over the next 12 months. APA, DINO, PSX, XOM, EQT, in that order.

I dropped about $500 into mostly energy names (AMR/XOM/BTU/PSCE) today. Honestly AMR/BTU are at *fantastic* prices and really have little to do with Europe. Great entry points.

Bulls begging XOM not to fall below 100.

Mentions:#XOM

Wow, what a dump in energy. Just bought a share each of XOM, AVUV (US small cap value), AVDV (ex-US developed small cap value), 5 shares of PSCE. Great entry point for AMR/BTU if you don't have any coal positions: those markets have little to do with European or US demand. Might add AMR.

Seriously doubt they’d ever buy a major OFS company. It took them years to work their way out of those businesses.

Mentions:#OFS#XOM

XOM trades sideways? After booking record profits every quarter? I'm surprised. I don't track XOM, but I assumed every oil company stock was on a bull trend. It's easy to find underlyings that move sideways, but that isn't all that you want. You want underlyings that move sideways for short periods of time while experiencing high volatility in between. If they are just flat all the time, like a consumer staples company (GIS), they aren't worth trading because they have no volatility to trade on. I'd suggest using a screener from an expected move site, like https://tools.optionsai.com/expected-move and just choose some maximum percentage for 1 week. Like less than 1% expected move. But then, like I said, you'd also need to screen for volatility, like you'd want a trailing volatility indicator like IV Rank or IV Percentile to be higher than average. This is also a good question for the r/thetagang sub. They might have more insight or recommendations.

I always recommend people overlay SLB, HAL & BKR with XOM (or any other oil major) and let that tell you how things turn out. Oil is obviously very cyclical, but the drillers just never really get to ride the wave in a big way. Don't get me wrong - they're great buys when they're down, but you really need to buy *at the bottom* in order for it to make good financial sense. Also, compare their dividend increases over the past few decades. But one thing that I find interesting: oil companies keep talking about how they're now paying out gobs of cash to their investors. Why? Oil has been stable and trending around $80 for quite a while now. They say they're rewarding their investors for sticking with them thru the rough patch. But my personal opinion is they're under-investing in future production, which will cause the future price of oil to go/stay up. Green energy is slowly replacing oil. Worldwide birthrates are flatlining. So oil's simple solution is simple supply and demand: pump less, then charge more for it. Oil really is controlled by an international cartel, all working together to ensure fat profits.

High value/dividend stocks - XOM, WMT, BP, IBM etc

Well my portfolio is primarily SPDR sector ETFs (passive) although I actively rebalance and weight them based on market conditions and business cycle. I do get tired of hearing "buy SPY and check back in 30 years" because I think it makes sense to weight your portfolio according to which parts of SPY will do the best (i.e., look at sector performance). That said, I do carry a few strong conviction stocks (actually just KO right now, I found an attractive exit from XOM last week). I can't imagine people not hedging for very large positions in a specific stock though. That is a disaster looking for a place to happen.

Lot's of choices. XOM is hard to beat. Buffett loves CVX and OXY, so either is a player. OXY with only a small dividend and a big play on US shale. CVX more intl as is XOM and with a nice dividend. High dividend, low growth players are the MLPs. ET and EPD are my favorites. Less stock price growth but a 7-9% annual yield is hard not to like.

I hope he is right i am sitting on 10k worth of XOM calls. LNG looks interesting - first US company to export LNG. Europe needs it. Seems like gas futures found a bottom recently too. Looking to enter a position at an attractive entry price!

It's easier to beat the market in a high interest rate environment. For the last 12 years, everyone was just buying $SPY or $QQQ since interest rates were basically zero. If the cost of cash is basically zero, than you might as well overpay for future growth. That has led to many investors being overweight $AAPL, $AMZN, $GOOGL, $META, etc. Not too many funds or individual stock investors are overweight $DE, $CAT, $XOM, $FCX, or $MOS for example.

TSLA investor day was a snooze fest. i was waiting for them to announce a new model and bought 100 shares around 198.6. sold half at 197 and was shocked to see it at 189 at AH close! The youtube chat kept it entertaining, lol. I dont want to baghold TSLA and with that lame event surely people will probably be dumping. so i might dump my other 50 and switch to shorting instead. Never have luck with TSLA it seems... I've been doing well with 3/17 395 puts and SQQQ calls, buying on tops of upswings and peicemeal selling them for 80-100 dollar gains slowly. With todays close and TSLA sucking really hard I expect us to open lower tomorrow to start. SPY dropped a buck and a half probably from the TSLA event. I still have a fuckton of calls at the moment including XOM, MCD, HRL, DAL, PSA, MDLZ. Probably around 25k worth of calls and they are all red at the moment. Mostly june dated. planning to exit if we get back to 4000, if not might need to exit many of those. My SPY puts and SQQQ have been offsetting those losses but i'm getting low on buying power. Looking to re-enter UNG at 8.5 if it gets there, made decent coin on UNG calls too this week. I have had a good run since mid jan of about 33k realized gains and my account is up 55% YTD....but being so heavy with calls and definitely bearish looking charts I'm not feeling so great.

If you are building a solid diversified portfolio in equities only, you should own some income stocks as well. Their dividends give you exposure to payments similar to holding a bond that pays a coupon payment on certain dates until maturity. An income stock does not have the direct current market value if you need to sell in reverse (negative correlation) to interest rate movements/levels. The 60/40 equity/bond build is back in favor since the QE mania from The Fed has ended which only goosed up the equity returns over the past 13 years. A 2-year treasury bond gives you a 4.8% yield right now until maturity, with zero risk. The Rule of thumb is the older you get, and having less working/income earnings year left until retirement, the heavier you weigh on the bond side. Bonds have much less risk, especially Treasuries. One portfolio I built had tech (MSFT - small dividend), banks (JP morgan - smal dividend), retail (DLTR - retail), defense (LMT - small dividend), energy (XOM - 8% dividend) and consumer products (MO - 8% dividend) in the mix. Built that one in the fall of 2020 and has worked quite well. Well diversified. Your portfolio gets an income payment every quarter from dividends with which you can use to reinvest and buy a few more shares of the stock. Some stocks went up, some went down. Overall, the SP500 is down, and that portfolio is up. Here is one of the better links I found on sector rotation. [https://school.stockcharts.com/doku.php?id=market\_analysis:sector\_rotation\_analysis](https://school.stockcharts.com/doku.php?id=market_analysis:sector_rotation_analysis) Notice the 6 stocks I put in that portfolio fall in different sectors on the rotation map, which further diversifies your portfolio and also against market fluctuations. To size balance to start, you can use $s into each stock and not the nominal stock prices. That portfolio got a little lucky as I picked DLTR in the fall of 2020 after the March covid blip down and then popped back up as I expected coming inflation with The Fed buying over $4T in bonds. Then, after Joe won, I figured DC spending was going to ramp up. It did not hurt that the war propped up LMT and energy prices as well. Best of luck. going forward long term, I really like cyber security stocks.

I appreciate your feedback. I’m already invested in AAPL, AMZN, MSFT, O, MO, ABBV, ARC and XOM. Considering a utility now because of an economics podcast I listened to today that said utilities are somewhat recession proof. I’m looking at CWCO as a utility. Also thinking about adding GD due to whats been going on with Taiwan. I haven’t looked at mutual funds yet and I’m not clear what the difference between an M Fund and an ETF is. Again, thanks for responding.

that is how the market works if the companies have enough cash to increase buybacks. look at the three year of buy backs on starting from the covid lows https://ycharts.com/companies/XOM It's also a reason why Apple does not drop, constantly buys back stock

Mentions:#XOM

Also careful of this: https://www.shacknews.com/article/130544/nvidia-nvda-15-billion-buyback the entire move up was probably buy backs, want to buy to Dec 2023 Look at the XOM chart, its bearish on all indicators but does not drop to to buybacks

Mentions:#XOM

That's my take as well....can you say "Bed Bath Beyond"? Under zero circumstance was it remotely a good idea for them to borrow more money (Billions) to buy back stock when they were/are going down like the Titanic before/during/after the buyback. XOM on the other - just the opposite!

You are late, it’s consolidating. Should have shorted XOM when it hit ATH 119 without any fundamentals supporting the rise in stock price. Crude continues to decline, so oil and gas valuations will follow.

All true, I presume. However from the retail 50,000 foot view it's considered to be the third worst major out of 3. So that might be a factor. If incremental dollars go to XOM, CVX, that could be why less money flows to OXY.
