I'm still in...down a little on Aurora an Green Thumb, but up nicely on CRON. CRON has actually had a really nice run over the last few weeks. I've been out of Tilray since I sold at $120 or whatever it was....but it had a huge week over the last week.

glad I stayed on the CRON roller coaster, the future is looking better. I'm in other OTC CBD/hemp stocks, a few took off after hemp was legalized, sold a chunk to cover initial costs and riding on free shares. I know i'm playing the lotto here, but if just one of these takes off, could make a nice return.

lol pretty awesome memefield over in reddit wallstreetbets https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets

this guy 1R0NYMAN put 5k into a robinhood account
https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetb..._when_to_stop

set up an option strategy he didn't really understand, and one their software shouldn't have allowed but apparently it was complex enough that they did - in any case his ultimate holdings had 250k margin dollars



the strategy was based on all purchased options expiring at the same time (in 2 years) and never being exercise. but the calls were deep in the money... so they were likely to get exercised (and could at any time)

max loss risk of 212k... on a dude who opened his account with 5k

calls started being exercised and losses started mounting

somehow at some point it seems to have poorly calculated margin needed in the account? he was able to withdraw 10k

robinhood sent out an email to all customers saying they no longer support this type of option strategy

his account was closed at -$57,989

but... as it sits he has +10k in his bank account

the meme video is FUCKING AMAZING

https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetb...d_of_1r0nyman

another summary:
RH accidentally allowed the individual in question to collateralize more options (up to a total of $250k of leverage) with the legs of other options he had sold, in a convoluted strategy he believed would create a risk-free method of earning 37k, no matter the outcome, from an initial account balance of 5k.

Other posters warned him that this wasn't how it was going to work out, and in the aftermath, the user ended up:

In real life, earning a 100% return on the 5k, since RH evidently let him cash out 10k in the account before they then,

Closed his account, and liquidated him at an on-paper 58k loss (-1000%) and

Caused RH to send a platform wide email disabling option box spread trades for every user, because of this one legendary retard

Although I don't own anymore marijuana stocks, I still check them out from time to time and see how they're doing. I'll wait till tax time and put a little more back into my portfolio.

Canopy Growth had a big day too!

Chip makers had a nice recovery over the last 2 days. I own a good amount of AMAT and was able to recover most of my losses from 2018.

Buddy of mine told me about HEXO in December and I wasn't feeling it. Kicking myself now for not jumping on that one.

OGRMF was one of the original ones I jumped on last summer...still own it. Been a good one.

Anyone watching Boeing? It's probably going to be volatile for the next few weeks, but seems like a good entry point.

Amazon Rises After Oppenheimer Raises Price Target were rising slightly Monday after analysts an Oppenheimer raised their price target on the online retailing giant. The stock was up 1% to $1,799.12 a share Monday in premarket trading. Oppenheimer raised its price target to $2,085 from $1,975 a share and maintained its outperform rating on the stock, citing the company's ability to leverage its artificial intelligence capabilities for the Amazon Web Services business.

fyi lyft has no LEAP options (or any option chain) yet. not sure how/when/why that works.

in any case if you would have straight shorted it you would have already made money.



i think i probably should have been working in startups all my life, considering you actually benefit from company upside and that my working style and life fits in with them just fine. in any case i am excited to be a part of a future IPO we'll eventually make. we'll even have a profit! ;p

Anybody buy or have any Disney stocks? Went up over $11/share today since they made the announcement of their streaming service. My assumption (which means jack) is that when it actually goes live in November will also see a jump in shares.

Lyft already fell in price since Uber released their S-1.

Shares of Lyft are down 20% for the week as investors finally got their first look inside rival Uber’s business. The stock is on track to close in the negative four out of five days this week and drop $3 billion in market capitalization.

Lyft sank more than 2% on Friday, a day after Uber released its S-1 where it reported 2018 revenue of $11.27 billion compared with Lyft’s $2.2 billion. Uber said it had a net profit of $997 million in 2018, though it has a loss of $1.85 billion on an adjusted EBITDA basis. Lyft reported a loss of $911 million in its public filing

I have a bunch of Disney stock in my IRA. I should go take a look at it. I haven't paid much attention to it.

Edit: I lied. I just remembered that I sold my Disney stock for Apple in December after the market tanked. I haven't been watching Disney at all this year.

I have a few shares in Disney but hoping to get more in the near future just for the short run. Might just keep some, if not most, for the long haul, but my guess is that come November, when they open up their streaming service, stocks will raise another 10-15%.

AT&T shares produce a good yield on dividends. I believe it's currently at 51 cents per share, which next payout is on May 1st. AT&T issues dividends every quarter.
