Musk is a parasite that has abused endless gibbs, tax rebates, and carbon credits to engineer a cult machine with some of the most obnoxious dudebros on the planet. He is also a typical venture capital snake oil salesman. He spouts technical pseudo babble about everything and thinks all problems are really just easy if you think of them as "easy as software". And when it proves too challenging he quietly walks away while weird nerds defend his actions. He exists because the economy has been broken and ZIRP allows for some true tech trash to flourish.

You don't want gold or silver during recessions. You want gold or silver when treasuries have negative real returns. Yes, it is "unoptimized" to not just be all in on stocks but there is a shit ton of "conservative" investors with real money that are more occupied about protecting their capital than wanting downside risk from the market. The Fed advertising that they don't expect to raise interest rates until 2022 was the "go" signal for PMs or any other commodity really. The fed made a pump fake in 2011 that they were going to raise interest rates. That gambit won't work again.

When I did it like 5 years ago it was generally weeklies around earnings at 5-10% strikes above current price. Since there are only 4 earnings reports I only bothered with it 4 times a year. The premiums otherwise are a joke. Vola is so stupid high right now that you can get 5-10% swings off stupid news like announcements of stock splits. So now is really not a time to do it.
Maybe with AAPL you could sell calls right before the split at 10-15% and retards will buy it anyway. If AAPL runs like that a week after a split for no fucking reason than the market is a casino anyway.

Dividends are why stocks exist. Stocks that don't pay dividends only have value because of the expectation that they will at some point in the future.

Imagine a company that is guaranteed to never pay it's shareholders. What would be the value to them? Why would they want it? If you say it's because the share price will increase, who are they selling it to, and why does that person want it?

Buybacks are maybe one other option - they're kind of like getting all your dividends out as one lump payment. Maybe the possibility of a buyout as well. But fundamentally, if you don't have a means to get value through ownership, why would you value ownership?

Exactly. It's just greater-fool theory: people think something worthless has value because they'll be able to sell it to someone else for even more money. Whoever is the last fool in the chain gets left holding the bag.

Not to say that people won't make money from it, of course. But there's bound to be as many losers as winners, and as many bagholders as there are bags.

the market runs on hype now. the key to making profits today is finding where they hype is, riding the momentum, and getting out before the hyped up event actually occurs and reality is worse than expectations.

forward splits are free money though. the only expectation of the event is that it will be cheaper and therefore more people will buy it which will make it go up even more, so it's kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy. TSLA's battery day is the one you gotta be careful of, not the split. AAPL doesn't have any major catalysts coming up soon afaik so that should be fine to hold on to long term as well but it will probably slow down and consolidate after a couple of months.

The only time he was successful was when someone else was doing the work (e.g. he didn't found tesla, he purchased them and the owners are the ones doing all the work while he gets in the way. He didn't really found openai, he is "lending his name" to sutskever et al.).

you're just flat out wrong though, idk how to describe it any more simply to you. the only way the US would ever give up all of it's power without a fight is if the democrats dismantle it from the inside. as long as that doesn't happen though, as long as the US military is the strongest in the world, no one is going to start shit with us financially.

besides, think of the ramifications. what's going to be the world currency, china? really? i don't think anyone wants that, and if they do, the world really is well and truly fucked and i don't want to live in it anymore because it's going to become a fascist shithole with the han mandarin being the fucking kings of the world at the expense of everyone else. fuck that. just one more reason why the dems can't be allowed to win, because if we lose our military strength it's all over.

If you have 2k, you can still write stuff like SPY spreads two, three times a week for 3%+ consistent gains. Of course, you'd have to go all in each time since you want to grow capital as quickly as possible.

Never said otherwise. TSLA is a relatively safe stock with good upside (I wouldn't say "great", because I don't think the people who invest in TSLA have infinitely deep pockets, and I think that since they're ADHD kids, they might pull out if it stops going fast as quickly).
I am not going into TSLA because of the above as well as what I see as better, and on top of that, safer, opportunities. For example, I think AAPL is a better stock overall for my risk targets. I also like NVDA and AMD. For the long run, I think WMT will do well. My major position is simply SOXL.
It's always been a fact that business quality, CEO quality, and profitability are entire uncorrelated, under some regularity conditions (e.g. that you can time a pump and dump, or that you are otherwise not going to baghold).
There is literally nothing wrong with your plan except for the fact that maybe using calls instead of the underlying might work better.

TSLA is like 12% or something of FNGU where it's only a few %s of TQQQ so yea you will see bigger swings based on TSLA.

You're probably better just holding TQQQ + TSLA or going some mix of TQQQ / FNGU. I don't understand why Twitter is in FNGU but Microsoft isn't.

There's no point in dumping TSLA. Maybe you sell and it tanks after so you can buy in cheaper. Maybe it doesn't. Don't try to figure out TSLA you'll just get burned.

the key with a stock like TSLA is you play the hype events. i'll probably buy back in after what i expect to be the very obvious and inevitable big selloff on/after battery day (unless they somehow have a massive beat on the already stratosphericly high expectations of the event like the second coming of battery jesus), and ride the momentum into whatever the next hype event for them will be and sell it a couple of days before the actual event itself. wash rinse repeat. im doing the same thing with AMD in anticipation of shit like big navi and the next gen consoles being released. just ride the hype momentum of any name brand stock and get out before the actual event, the losers are the ones who play the event itself (which you don't know the results of) instead of playing the before and after (which you do know the results of). you can know the hype before the event and you can know the reaction after the event. i wouldn't be surprised at all if TSLA ends up being a great short term short play on a battery day sell off. not that i'd ever short TSLA because who fucking knows it could still go up because it's TSLA, but i just wouldn't be surprised.

im just here to take my free money im not gonna try to figure it out. i have no problem buying in higher if the hype calls for it to have momentum to go even higher than that, but after so much upward movement for a whole month, battery day is going to be the perfect opportunity to get dumped on.

don't get me wrong it'll be a temporary dump and TSLA will likely continue to make new ATH's but i'd rather stay out of the way instead of take the risk. but that's just me. i just don't see holding through battery day as being a "sure thing" like i do with the forward split and the month leading up to battery day is imho, know what i mean?

TSLA batteries and AI will be used on any and everything SpaceX does.
Aside from that, the point is that when your CEO is as ambitious as Musk you are going to see a lot of innovation.
Here's another argument for TSLA based on zero TA and only my observation aka 'dude trust me'.
Last night at a restaurant there were 3 Tesla cars there at the same time. It's a pretty small parking lot so that's significant/ I'd say 20 cars max.
As I mentioned in an earlier post addressing the 'bubble' concerns, those in tech are not only safe but thriving. That industry sucks Elon's dick like no other and everyone wants to show off how woke they are by driving a Tesla. It's not about anything other than the name and that's what you guys don't get. People don't give a fuck about EVs if they aren't Teslas because saying "I drive a Tesla" is way cooler than saying "I drive a Chevy Volt".
Do you think girls buy Louis Vuitton bags because the build quality? No. They buy them to show off to other girls. Nerds and rich people will buy Teslas to show off and be smug.
Stop trying to use TA to value Tesla and start using human psychology.

So in previous busts, tech wasn't as large of a component in S&P. Now that tech are the leaders of the S&P by a hefty amount, whenever there is a rotation out of tech, the money flows into different sectors. It's basic sector rotation, except that money flows back into tech over time. The idea here is to long COVID-beaten stocks like financials, energy (oil, airlines, etc) but choosing safe ones. This leaves us with mainly financials as REIT is too hard to understand for many people (and not as much volume), so the idea is to long the financials and taking profits on whenever there's a rotation out of tech like last Friday and into financials - then you yourself rotating back into tech as you take profits on financials. Basically buying calls on tech on deep red days while selling off your financials then rebuying financials on deep red (after people rotate back into tech) and repeat.

but if you're the kind of guy who's physically fit and greatly prefers being outside in the elements and fresh air and being tired and sweaty and physically exhausted at the end of every day, then go for it. i quit, went to the best community college i could find for STEM, got an ASEE and became an engineering technician, which is basically like being a blue collar worker except you get way better pay and benefits and you do most of your work sitting at a work bench soldering PCB boards. way better lifestyle and i still get to work with my hands while working in a climate controlled lab where no one bothers me for the most part and i even get a lot of free time to day trade stocks when work is slow. way better than being an electrician imho.

Nah, it's definitely real and there if you look at the boomer retail headlines from time to time. It's just that the rotation doesn't last for more than a few days at maximum. Basically it's like forcing yourself to take profits in the sense that you sell off your financial position to buy calls on tech on deep red days.

I think it's pretty alarming that most of Bitcoin users aren't actively using it to deal with everyday purchases even in 2020. Development and adoption seems pretty stagnant, and that's coming from somebody who frequents visits to Japan and Korea (visiting family). If I don't see BTC being adopted in those type of countries, I don't see it ever being adopted in places like Europe or America any time soon. If they adopt BTC, sure, I can see it going to $50k and beyond.

If FNGU is just 'the main drivers of TQQQ" but FNGU's main driver is TSLA is there any reason not to just own TQQQ + TSLA instead of 100% FNGU? Like 75% TQQQ / 25% TSLA or 80/20.

Very nice.

No. There will probably be some sears and blockbusters that happen over time as they age. You need diversification and to pick up some smaller cap tech stocks as well for long-term.

At the same time you should definitely still have megacaps. Just try to stay within the tech currents. All in on one is more risky if you are playing tech momentum.

i'll keep it in mind but i still abhor physical labor as a job. i make plenty from my tech job and from stonks already, and stay in shape using a concept2 rowing machine so it's not like i need the physical labor to stay fit or anything.

>> No.21754408

Yeah, AAPL is a play on inequality and status seeking as much as tech. So it's probably good longterm but the brand has to stay luxury and appealing.

>> No.21754409

While I agree that tech is a leader for a huge reason, we have to remember that there are other factors at play in the world.

This is why things like lumber futures, precious metals have also been great plays but less noticed by many. I think financials/fintech are one of those too. I'm not saying going all in on AAPL or AMZN is a bad idea at all, it's just that I like to have plays on days when tech is red instead of just sitting there. I also want to make additional plays when tech is massively up. Basically I'm always looking to buy a dip in something.

AMZN used to be ahead of AAPL in marketcap. The problem here is that AMZN is not as retail investor friendly. And there's no real brand loyalty, just that people use AMZN because they kind of need to. But I see more room for growth for AMZN. Basically I see it running to $4000.

Bezos should invest shit tons into developing ghost kitchen brands. A chinese food one, mexican food, subs, etc and eventually use drones to deliver alongside amazon deliveries.

so what would you suggest besides AAPL and AMD? i mostly want to have something i can hold long term and write covered calls on while also having money left over to play hype events when they occur that are more short-term swing trade sort of events.

FNGU is 3x leveraged, TSLA is 1x leveraged. It's that simple.

Physical jobs are way better most of the time compared to white collar.

1) Pay is higher
2) Job Security (Haha non-essential fags)
3) Benefits (Insurance/Pension)

Time goes by faster and there's something natural about moving around, being outside compared to being a fatass eating pizza on top of your keyboard staring at a screen for hours.

I don't have exceptional insight into these companies. I usually just pick AI-involved companies like NVDA, GOOG, etc even if maybe they aren't on the best path. tech ETFs aren't bad either aside from a weird pick or two in most.

Honestly Bezos should invest into a lot of things.
Did you know that Amazon might the publisher for Lost Ark?


If Amazon starts publishing MMORPGs and games, I can definitely see those RPGs being pretty successful because Amazon has no need to squeeze $10 from its MMORPG players. Just like how Amazon loses money on its Prime Now and Fresh/Whole Foods deliveries but it doesn't give a single shit because it gets Amazon into people's homes.

I do see Amazon growing into so many more areas and if those drone deliveries ever do take off (in say, like 2025 or 2026 even) I can see Amazon absolutely popping the fuck off. And if Amazon, Tesla, nVidia ever team up for some AI self-manned delivery shit.. you know all three of those will absolutely pop the fuck off to the moon.

Breddy gud

Corona changed things. Forget about the masks, the social distancing and all that gay shit. It pressured companies to sink or swim. You HAD to move online, you had to downsize, you had to do a lot of things that can't be sustained without tech.
Do you know what happens when you start laying off associate level staff in retail / hospitality / etc? They get replaced with automation. I'm not saying I'm in favor of it but that is absolutely what has happened and will continue to happen.
It's like the gold rush in the west. You could either mine gold or you could sell shovels. Tech is the shovel.
What do you rotate out of tech into? Real estate? Healthcare? Financials? Just because it's 'cheap' doesn't mean it's going to go back to the price it was before and by the time it does you could have 5X'd your money in some meme company or a 3x bull etf

thanks. i think i'll probably focus on tech, financials, and fast food. im interested in doing some FA and seeing how much of a correlation there is between some new item they put on the menu and hype that leads to good momentum plays.

I believe most of what you're saying, especially ("there's something natural about moving around") but I don't really believe (1) is true, honestly it depends. I've always worked at factories as an engineer and in cases where the operators and techs make more than me, it's because they're working crazy overtime and not even seeing their fucking kids.

>> No.21754639

Games aren't really reliable. High churn in employees. Hard to stay consistent. etc.

If anything they should invest in technology like unreal engine type projects or ML applied to content creation for games.

Actually developing games is the wrong pathway. Amazon should know this as a storefront provider.

>> No.21754702

1 is so false it's scary that you think that.
2 is not true either. "non-essential" is usually codeword for "get paid 100% to do nothing at home". Not always, of course, but if you do anything with computers, that's how it is.
3 Is also bullshit, I don't know a single whitecollar job that doesn't guarantee benefits even at startups. On top of that, they usually let you wfh a few days a week pre-corona.

>Pay is higher
A Network Engineer with a CCNP or equivalency gets anywhere from 70k-100k USD, is this true for blue collar?
>Job Security
There is tons of jobs with security in tech. It's been one of the markets with massive growth in the midst of all this. Electrical Engineers, Network Engineers, etc. and the likes are not going to get laid off during all of this. I don't know about code monkeys, but I'm not one of them, so I don't care.
>Benefits (Insurance/Pension)
Depends on your employer so ymmv
>there's something natural about moving around
I agree with this, but I just go to the gym after work anyway, I wouldn't want to be physically beat and then have to lift.

I think at this point Amazon has so much cash to work with that they might actually try to dip its hand into the video game industry as a developer and a publisher at the same time. I see them developing New World (Amazon Game Studios) and trying to reach publishing deals (Lost Ark, Smilegate) - and I don't think they care if it loses them money. Whatever gets the word 'Amazon' into more homes and more minds of old and young people alike, the more they win in the end.

TSLA smokes FNGU if you look at their charts. Unfortunately FNGU has only been out like 2 years so It's not really enough data but in that time TSLA = 579% ROI and FNGU = 163%
Obviously a company can't just grow at that rate forever and that's the pros / cons of an ETF over just picking the right stock every time.
I just wish I could compare FNGU and TQQQ without TSLA being part of either's holdings.

Or if one of these companies would make a legit FAGTMANN 3x bull ETF. Fuck twitter and fuck chinks

BitCoin just popped into normie's lives, relatively new. It's a speculative investment; however all it takes is for the right scenario to play out and BitCoin (or some other crypto) will be lifting off into the moon.

>Unfortunately FNGU has only been out like 2 years
That's the first problem. You can simulate FNGU for longer (or look at TQQQ as a micro-FNGU: basically double TQQQ gains for a FNGU estimate) to get a better view of it.
Secondly, TSLA didn't grow that fast until a few months back where it started going parabolic. It was far more modest before. Combined, these two things make FNGU look far worse than TSLA when actually that's not how it works at all.

Also, you can do your own 3x leverage if you want. You get to not even pay the fee, which is cool. Deep itm calls work, futures work too. CFDs otherwise.

1) Job security-......yes retard. Most of these blue collar jobs have great deficiencies in enrollment and qualifications. HVAC & Plumbing are some examples. Most of those jobs have older workers that are retiring while demand for work is increasing.

2) Job security- Non-essential means you're so useless to society that the government would rather pay you $600 a week to be scum than spread a disease. Essential employees albeit missed out on government dough, still kept their job and their employer is likely in decent financial shape.

3) You're using the higher echelon of white collar jobs as an example. Most white collar jobs on average don't have nearly the same benefits.

Also to add, you're not easily replacable in blue collar jobs as most employees need certain certifications and skills. White collar employees are replacable if performance falters.
