    Cryptos and Oil: Theme for 2018

    2 weeks into the year and so far off to a good start. The PEGI losses in my company portfolio have all been offset, and more, by STX over the past week and that said portfolio is up a cool 22% for the year so far. Believe me when I tell you, STX is just getting […]

    I Was Wrong on PEGI

    As a money manager, it is an egregious sin to allocate funds into underperforming sectors. For someone living off a dividend that is tolerable, but that does not describe me. Perhaps I may be right in the end on PEGI but I am not waiting years for it to play out. The alternative energy sector is dead […]

    Seagate Technology ‘May’ Own 4.3% of Ripple

    STX was up big today on speculation of news with the above headline. If this were to be true, according to speculation of a 4.3% ownership of Ripple, that position could be worth close to $7 billion, more than half of their current market cap. I usually don’t buy stocks off news events, but after […]

    Mega-Cap Stocks Back In Favor

    For the love of god, I sell my IPGP position and it rips 10% the first 2 trading days of the year. Nothing new, the market is just keeping the status quo set last year. This trade will continue to work until it doesn’t. Large cap tech is back in favor, as it should be. […]

    First Trading Day of 2018, Markets Rip Higher

    One day into the year and the NASDAQ is right back at all time highs, up near 1.75% today. Oil is strong and I regret letting that RDS go without me. I have been following that name since last August, when it was trading down at $54. Blockchain plays are still hot and business is as […]

    So, Whats Your Investment Approach?

    I woke up today to my lotto stock up 47%, on news they are raising $100 million to increase their stake in Movie Pass, a subscriber based platform aimed at movie-goers that has gone from 20,000 users to 600,000+ in the past 2 months. To be honest, the news it was up on is irrelevant, […]

    Bought COHR

    One of my largest holdings, PEGI, got smoked today, off by the tune of about 4%. They have wind projects in Santa Isabel, the south part of Puerto Rico, which just got destroyed by cat 4 hurricane. None of PEGI’s assets there, however, were damaged, but the company did readjust 3Q earnings lower, which is […]

    Adding Some Solar: Bought CAFD

    I want some exposure to solar, which goes along with my theme of alternative energy as articulated before. For years now, people have been talking about solar, and its efficiency and ‘awesomeness’. Advocates for the technology will tell you it will cut your household electricity costs by a 2/3, literally overnight, and to the surprise […]

    My Current Investment Strategy And How I’ve Grown

    It takes a lot of discipline, years of being on the receiving end of profound losses to learn how to successfully ebb and flow with the markets. The unexpected happens more often than expected and bad luck becomes a term lightly tossed around, an excuse of sorts for being caught on the wrong side of a trade. Short […]

    Shifting From Tech to Energy

    I have been somewhat busy this morning, buying and selling stocks – readjusting the portfolio as I deem fit. I am sensing a lot of fatigue in high beta tech names, namely the ones that have ran hard in 2016-2017 – that will likely last at least a few months. Tech appears to be dead […]
