Re: Stock investment poll

Just sold my holding in Games Workshop. A bit conflicted on this as I like the company and don't want another repeat of Dominos Pizza, Microsoft or Adobe where I sold only to see the shares continue to rocket upwards.

Decided to take profits and pay down some margin.

Re: Stock investment poll

As the semiconductor market should start rebounding according to gurus :

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/globa...103610013.html

I’m contemplating investing in the following stocks long term:

STM
ONSemi
Infineon
SLAB
Intel

Any thoughts on any of those? The EF’s expertise as usual is very precise.

Probably the other options are much wiser choice as Intel seem to be going down according to:

Intel is not sealing in calm waters
https://www.wsj.com/articles/intel-n...ix-11603129781

I would rather be more inclined towards composition of NVIDIA, AMD, TXN, Qualcomm at the moment:
https://www.investopedia.com/article...onductor-etfs/

Hence, the other two ETF’s look better i.e. SOXX and PSI.

STM I was long in but sold recently as it seemed a little extended (and I wanted to pay down margin).

Intel is the most interesting. Huge, dominant and in an industry with tailwinds. Currently down due to short term issues, so at first glance it looks like a value stock. However, I wonder whether the short term issues are ones which lead to long term issues that turn Intel into a value trap. We will not know the answer for a few years, but it will likely be volatile quarters ahead for INTC.

AMD is the opposite side of the coin. David fighting the Goliath. Nosebleed valuations but huge potential opportunity ahead. Probably unstoppable in the near term as Zen3 is a home run, next gen consoles will roll out and RDNA2 looks surprisingly competitive (but still way behind in software support). I'm not sure whether the market will be patient enough to wait for AMD to grow into its valuation, though.

Re: Stock investment poll

SNAP nicely surprised this week with strong revenue and user growth.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/sn...of2&yptr=yahoo

I bought this stock after IPO many years ago, just 50 shares. I’m glad I was being patient and didn’t sell it with loses back then. Let’s see how far it can go along FB.

It means nothing, their current problems are well publicised... 2021/2022 with the new desktop releasess when it will start to pick up pace. At this price, just buy and wait.

I always assumed this company would go to zero.

Purchased AMAT (Applied Materials) and STM two days ago, by rather using my instinct than anything else. Well, let’s see how it goes ...

I am still keeping GPRO and waiting for their moment of break-even.

Market is a test of patience for impulsive investors.

EPS $0.32, stock price $77
BTW, I reckon the stock price fell because of other reasons, such as the Nasdaq being down 3% so far today.

It's not quite as insane as it looks:

1. That's a quarterly EPS
2. It's a growth stock. EPS tripled year over year!
3. PEG ratio is actually lower than Intel, which has a PE of around 10.

If it triples again, the PE ratio would actually be fairly reasonable.

Could also be some arbitrage: sell AMD and buy XLNX on the assumption the acquisition goes ahead.

Are you ready for the blow off top? After a dicey inflection point just before the US election, it looks like everything is set for stocks to experience a FOMO melt-up.

I've just traded out of my position in my significant (for me) Ballie Gifford Pacific horizon this AM - premium over NAV was up to 15% and I've made too much to be true. Bought for c. 300, sold for almost 750 in same calendar year

Plowed it all into SMT for a more reasonable price vs NAV (still has a sizeable CN exposure of around 20%). Should have gone for Cineworld :S - time to buy junk!

Other than this, keep calm and carry on!
