You will make good money on both IPOs if you sell within the first month. Airbnb is probably a decent long-term option but seriously fuck that company and everyone in it.

I went through my gain/loss by stock for my trading account (opened March 2020), and here's the list!

  1. CAR +4224
  2. SPCE +1366
  3. LK +901
  4. DAL +658
  5. SCHW +604
  6. CNK +570
  7. F +545
  8. LAZR +503
  9. ALK +381
  10. AU +189
  11. UBER +154
  12. HPR +61
  13. AMTD +53
  14. PSA -2
  15. VLDR -3
  16. AXP -4
  17. HTZ -10
  18. NDAQ -22
  19. CTB -38
  20. ELY -40
  21. KO -48
  22. KDP -55
  23. IBKR -71
  24. BOX -108
  25. GPRO -197
  26. GOOGL -211
  27. XSPA -247
  28. COTY -287
  29. TLRD -505
Gains +10,209
Losses -1,848
Net Total +8361

Average stock: +288
Median stock: -3

The amount of money contributed was $19,417, so that works out to a percentage gain of 43.06%. But, the average amount of time money was in the account was only about 4 months, because I was steadily depositing money from March through October, starting from zero (so the amount in the account was much smaller early on). So actually the performance was about twice as strong as that 43% number would indicate. This is one of the greatest bull markets in history we've just experienced over the last 8.5 months (maybe the greatest, even).

I have had problems before in life with being unable to accept losses (needing to break even), so I am happy that I was able to close so many positions this year at small losses when I no longer felt they were the best choice of investment. TLRD in particular I could have lost 100% had I stuck it out, but I bailed at -30%. Biggest regret is probably GPRO - I had the thesis right, but got in too early and then sold near the bottom to pay some expenses before it ran +120%. Should have bought more shares instead of bailing.

True story I had a pretty substantial limit buy on c3.AI set for $50 (IPO estimate was $42 so I figured that'd be a bit of a buffer to get in)

If I was in on the corrupt crony circlejerk that would've been an easy money double

Yup I had one at $45 and then raised it to $52 thinking it would probably rise from the IPO price to open. Can't compete with literally opening +138% though.

Welp changed FIFO to LIFO on Ameritrade.

I feel like a royal idiot for selling under FIFO trying to average down. Goddamn. That undid a decent chunk of progress. And I imagine once shares are sold, there's nothing that can be done.

Don't oversell their achievements. This insanity happened for a good reason, but at absolute best they have cured recurrent breast cancer in patients who have already survived it. I say this because when I first heard "cured breast cancer" I was ready to buy that stock at pretty much whatever price.

But yeah, being in on a stock like that would just be pure dumb luck. Though look how long the opportunity lasted to buy it in the 20s!

Breast cancer is already curable. They raised survival rates from 89% with an outdated mode of therapy to 100%, which is great obviously, but not really an earth shattering achievement.

Was today the beginning of THE DIP I waited for so much?

Got caught with my pants down on Tesla but I am still at +1% so that's fine I guess
Not going to sell yet...in case THE DIP doesn't really happen

Also I just noticed something very interesting. 3 Months ago at September 1st, Tesla offered to sell 5 billion dollars in stock. A day later Trump bragged about new records. Then...the market started to crash

And Yesterday Tesla offered to sell 5 billion dollars in stocks. Today Trump bragged. Then the market started to crash.

Is this a repeat of what happened between the 2nd and 8th of September?!?!

Oh yes, obviously. Cured in the context I used it meant more to me preventing it from ever happening in the first place, which of course isn't the case here. I didn't know survival rates were already as high as 89% though!

So, SPCE (Virgin Galactic) is doing a launch with a human on board on Friday, weather permitting. I have close to 25% of my portfolio in this so I am pretty nervous. SpaceX just did a test flight today and it went well until it exploded on landing.

Yeah man, that's why people in the oncology space are salty about all of the "wear pink" stuff in the NFL, etc. Breast cancer is generally not a terminal illness unless it not caught until stage 3/4.

100% disease-free survival at 8 years IS kind of bonkers the more I think about it though. That's prostate cancer-levels of eradication.

So as much as I hated paying $95 for what other people bought for $42 because they got to buy at the IPO price, I ended up buying a little of C3.AI yesterday. And I'm glad I did, as it is now at $127.

I set a limit order for AirBNB at $150. It's highway robbery that they're letting the privileged bank clients buy at $68, but it's probably still a decent deal at $150.
