Same, despite their recent shenanigans.


I opened a Trade 212 account and could work their platform, and I didnt like it compared to DeGiro's.


As it turned out they couldn't verify my documents after several attempts. At that stage my DeGiro was back up trading and I simply closed my Trade 212 account.

Aussie stock up 20% overnight (Finally in the money after 4 years, my first ever stock purchase). Crypto up 91% in 7 days (Again finally in the money but up about 60%)

Looks like the beginning of a week that can only go down from here!

Not a fecking chance, holding that stock is like having another brother at this stage! I set a price target back in 2016 for it and I intend to stick to my guns

Spoiler: No but seriously it's a gold and cobalt miner so I'm happy to hold longer while gold is booming and they are yet to announce open pit mining results/aussie resources board approval

I may or may not follow them but over the past few months I do like the following stocks (some which took a hammering last Friday).
Coupa Software/Sea/Datadog/Etsy/Pinterest

Talking about hammering
Alteryx, Inc. (AYX) took a beating last Friday even though the results sounded ok. Definitely not the beating I was expecting so perhaps a good point to enter at now?
121.38-47.62 (-28.18%)

For good or bad my trading strategy is to find a professional organisation that has a good track record and in general take their advice. This will be for about 50% of my portfolio. The other 50% will be large cap 'anchor' stocks and perhaps a small bit of some 'gut' feeling/gambling

Yeah I have about 5% of my Portfolio in that, heck of a beating. I think they're an example of what happens to these big growth companies. They've brought huge returns over the past few months, so owe me nothing. That said, all those SAAS companies, Fastly, Datadog, Docusign, Alteryx, Crowdstrike, Okta (I own them all), are inflated now to the point where their share price is only justified if they have pretty much 70-100% growth each quarter. Obviously that's impossible to do forever, Alteryx were the first to falter last Thursday, and you see the results. It's grand for those that saw it go up 130% TYD before the Friday, but it shows that it's risky buying into them now.

As for Alteryx specifically, it's a quiet company, you're not going to hear big soundbites that will blow up the stock price until next results day, so I don't see it recovering that 28% dip for a while.

Your portfolio plan is sound, my problem is when you see the solid side growing at 10% per annum, while your other 50% doubles in 3 months (as we say Arpil-June this year), it's awfully tempting to make it 60/40, 70/30, 80/20 etc.

Sold off some some of my holdings in LSE at ~10% profits (SDRY & DDDD), going to buy some more WORK and TEAM with the weak dollar.
I see a buy order for MONC from a few weeks back got filled as well.

I hold DKNG and GAN (someone on here opened my eyes to them), but am liking what I see in PENN. Big casino presence, looking to move into sports betting. Bought a big stake in Barstool Sports (big US sports brand) and are lunching betting app through that soon, to tie in with the return of sports. Their casinos and bars will all have big Barstool branding, pushing the biggest gamblers to their online platform.

They’re somehow currently valued at $4bn compared to Draftkings $12bn. Draftkings has revenue of 300m and made a loss last year (doing sports gambling). Penn has revenue of 5.3BILLION before you add the sports gambling. How does that market cap make sense?

Probably enough room for both to be successful but definitely a lot more room for PENN to grow I feel.

I’m certainly considering jumping ship

Fair play buddy, your recommendation prompted me to pick up PENN at $30 ... its been my best performing stock over the last few weeks. up 50% whereas GAN & DKNG have basically just threaded water.

PENN down 3% today, however ... soo hopefully this post doesn't precipitate a nasty downward spiral...

About time. I've been waiting for them to do something.
