Your Special Garden. Grow Generation.

Six in California, five in Colorado, four in Michigan, four more in Oklahoma, one in Washington, and Oregon, and Florida, four more in Maine, and online–and now in Arizona, with the brand new acquisition of Hydroponic Depot, along with the state’s pending Prop 207 calling for legalization. All right then. It seems Grow Generation’s on the march. Specialty cultivators celebrate. Traders too. Corporate growth requires … Continue reading Your Special Garden. Grow Generation.

GM. Anatomy of the Trade.

Link to the Real. It Pays. https://stockjaw.com Time is money and quick is better than slow and never is a one year certificate of deposit at the going rate of 0.15%, or lower. Even stone can’t wait that long. Enjoy income? Fact. Even a fat 6% dividend isn’t a locked-in win when the underlying share price crumbles by 7%. Think AT&T. That’s more like cycling … Continue reading GM. Anatomy of the Trade.

Joy and Sorrow. Own These?

The chode’s forever circling in a stir with the choice. Hum. Life’s weird that way. It tosses everything about in a humongous bag, the jewels amid the junk. We’re left sorting it all out, voting with our dollars, while hoping for a future. Meanwhile analysts refuse to mark even the radioactive as a “Sell.” And that’s life in the sprawling equity market. It’s all there, … Continue reading Joy and Sorrow. Own These?

Facts Are Stub-Crazy Things. NFLX. Disney.

JULY 19, 2020. After close last Thursday Netflix put their Q2 facts on the table. Oops, it was really their suspicions that enraged.  Shares were indeed priced for perfection. They promptly plunged roller-coaster style 11% in after-hours.  But the fall actually began on Monday and didn’t abate until the close on Friday.
What’d the Los Gotos-based SVOD superstar say that enraged?
Simply the expectation of “2.5 million net new adds” for next quarter–Q3.  They also said the COVID crush of new subs is “tapering off.”  That did it.
O.K. Well, John Quincy Adams said “Facts are stubborn things.” And NFLX isn’t the only name in SVOD town.  Like Tom Cruse said in The Color of Money, “Everybody’s doin’ it.”  Disney’s doin’ it–since last November.  So’s Hulu, AT&T with HBO MAX.  Prime too.  But what about the enduring pundit love for Disney?  So Netflix v Disney, when “Facts Are Stub-Crazy Things.  NFLX.  Disney.”  Continue reading Facts Are Stub-Crazy Things. NFLX. Disney.

POWER PLAY. Utilities. Protection?

JULY 3, 2020.  Some may call you mean.  Some may call you rude.  Some will stop calling you at all.  Yet, the truth matters and a fall from a tall building doesn’t create more.  You paid for more, not less.  Consider it.
Power companies expect to be paid every month.  Promises won’t do.  But when you’ve paid to participate in the business, the results are all on you.  Utils are said to be “defensive.”  But from what?  Market crashes?  Capital loss?  Earnings reversals?  “No–it’s income” you say?  Nice.  Is it really income when your utility’s share price folds by double-digits?  How about if their EPS is in reverse?
Since our market was shoved off a cliff and unemployment bounced into the stratosphere, precisely what have the utilities done for you?  Have they kept the “defensive” promise?  Were you “protected?”  Or did you simply pay into a “POWER PLAY.  Utilities.  Protection?” Continue reading POWER PLAY. Utilities. Protection?

Zooming Now. Nothing Stands in the Way.

JUNE 25, 2020. When
charts look like flagpoles there’s trouble in the wind.  Zoom’s doesn’t.  When share prices nearly triple in six months, that’s trouble. Right?  ZM’s has.  Healthy sustainable growth takes a breath once in a while, rhythmically really.  Zoom’s doing that, consistently.  Healthy growth resembles a staircase; rise and rest.  Again, San Jose-based Zoom’s got that too.  So what’s the danger, if there is one? So what’s an investor to do when ZM’s shares are “Zooming Now.  Nothing Standing in the Way.” Continue reading Zooming Now. Nothing Stands in the Way.

While the World. Nvidia

JUNE 20, 2020 Our market blinds with the brilliance of an angry diamond. Hot here now there; secular tech, airlines, energy, financials to the cyclicals. Meanwhile mega-caps shimmer on. As the smoking money chases, SaaS tech bubbles or simply soars straight into space. While Tesla and FICO rage deafeningly the malicious warning sign leers; “Victims chase.” The burned have learned.
When prices double anything after is chasing crispy.
Astounding growth is astounding, when you’re in from the start. Merely spectacular growth is often better when searching for something to acquire. That’s NVIDIA. One month return 16%. YTD return a mere 56.5%. Of course it’s expensive. But so is a Benz, until Drunky the Clown center-punches you and you walk away. Only value managers complain like that, as they down yet another dose of 3M. They keep scads out of Amazon.
While the world fights the invisible, while the world resists nature’s call to gather, while the world pushes even deeper into our digital future, it’s NVIDIA. Is NVDA a good buy? Only if you like things that even COVID can’t stop. “While the World. NVIDIA.” Continue reading While the World. Nvidia
