Carvana was trading in the $260's a year ago. Currently under $4. Oh well, I guess they can always hope for another $1T of stimulus cash and near zero interest rates in the near future before they go bankrupt. 

i've done that with upstart.  i bought at 120 and now its 19.  i'm certain this business model that i have no idea how it is supposed to work is going to catch on any second

I wonder whether there would be interest in a more generalized investment thread discussion. I’ve gone down a rabbit hole on bond funds over the last few months and I think many folks would be interested in that discussion. Plus other retirement planning topics might be of interest. Any thoughts?

So something that is about other 95%+ of my portfolio - sounds like a good idea.
I am an advocate of a relatively small amount in bonds (no more than 1 year expenses) and the rest in primarily SPY, BRK.B and a little in QQQ

full disclosure - the cash amount is related to risk tolerance and age.
I manage finances for my mother, who will be 90 in 2 weeks, and I have 5 years of expenses in cash and short-term interest bearing CD's/Treasuries, and the rest in SPY & BRK.B

i'm doing some low rent stonking in my IRA right now.  since you don't have to pay for short term gains there, i'm trying to see if i can just make money on volatility.  so far so good.  i chose 4 stocks, bought the same $$ of each, and put limits on them at 3% profit, repeat with another random stock each time a sale is executed.  i've done i think 7 trades.  after one month: i'm up

Anybody else fucking around with BBBY options this week?  With the massive chatter surrounding BBBY recently, yesterday I bought a handful  of $3.50C expiring 1/20 for $0.32 per contract. Just sold 1/3 of them at $2.25 to lock in some profit. I have no clue when to sell the rest as the "story" is all bullshit, so I guess I'll just hang on through the weekend and see how high the apes can push this thing.

I'm fully aware that BBBY is a shit company heading towards bankruptcy, but it was only a few hundred bucks and who knows maybe they can recreate that GME magic from a couple of years ago.

Should have averaged down bro. I’m only down 35%. 

Oh I averaged down, but by the time it finally reached the bottom I couldn't justify putting more in. I actually think I'm in the 40% down range. Still hoping to see green again one day.

I have 200 sh of PLTR right now which trading at $6.88 ( total <$1400). Too embarrassed to tell you guys how much I bought these at.

Thinking to sell all and use all the money to buy 3 calls of $3 Jan 2025 at $4.65/each. To breakeven at expiry, price would need to be $7.65

What say you wisemen?

Unless you’re trying to create a tax event or own it in a retirement account, why wouldn’t you just buy more on margin? You could actually get more leverage and not pay the $0.87 premium, which is significantly more than your margin interest cost will be.

Spoiler

RecycLiCo Battery Materials (TSX-V:AMY, OTCQB:AMYZF) Inc said it has delivered samples of its battery-grade lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide to battery manufacturers in Japan and South Korea. 

The companies, which are among the top manufacturers in the region, will conduct a technical review of the lithium products and explore potential business partnership opportunities with RecycLiCo. 

"We are excited to showcase our recycled lithium products to leading battery manufacturers in Japan and Korea,” said Zarko Meseldzija, CEO and director of RecycLiCo Battery Materials in a statement. 

“We believe that our products have the potential to make a significant impact on the lithium market and help address the growing demand for sustainable sources of this critical material," he added.

RecycLiCo's recycled lithium products are produced using a closed-loop process that recovers lithium from end-of-life batteries and battery production scrap.

The company's lithium products have been produced to the stringent purity standards of the battery industry without the use of conventional purification methods, making them a reliable and sustainable alternative to traditional sources of lithium.

RecycLiCo is committed to helping reduce the environmental impact of lithium mining and production. As validated by an independent Life Cycle Assessment, the company's recycled products use significantly less energy and water compared to traditional methods and generate meaningfully fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

"We are proud to be leading the way in the development of sustainable lithium products," noted Meseldzija. "We believe that our recycled lithium has the potential to play a key role in the transition to a low-carbon future."

RecycLiCo Battery Materials is a battery materials company focused on recycling and upcycling lithium-ion battery waste.

This is in Roth so no margin.  Anyway my brokerage, Schwab, is charging 10% margin.

i have my first partial execution of an order.  i put in a sale price, it hit it to the penny, sold 2 of 150 shares, and then it dropped.  Feels kind of funny to sell 1% of my holdings of something.

I learned that lesson pretty quick, turns out each partial execution costs a trade, so my $5 in shares cost me $9.95 to trade. Will never make back that loss on the remaining $25 in shares! Now I always uncheck the "allow partial execution."
