Re: Help me think about the next step in my life

@ zbigi As a consultant...pretty spot on from what I've seen in the DC area from several projects I've been on. The idea of the 'code monkey' with no social skills is really starting to fade out... Ones benefits greatly when not only they know how to work with and maneuver data but how to use it to ...

Re: Foraging for food, nuts and bolts of it

First time I foraged this year :). Thanks COVID lockdown. Anyway...I'm terrible at identifying mushrooms so will need to read a book but this year I pulled raspberries, blackberries, and wild strawberry. I may have identified some wild greens but still overly cautious about eating them...which a hun...

Re: Investments Trade Log

@Lucky C Yep that is right. This market is shaking me right now admittingly. When I first timed the market in Feb it worked out really well and now I'm starting to see the same trends...I moved out of some riskier / not-growing positions and will move capital into slightly more safer positions. I'll...

Re: Investments Trade Log

In a sudden shift, I got some flashbacks of end of February. Decided to make some moves... 1.) Admitting that AMD is going to just defeat INTC long-term. I own both but not impressed with INTC earnings call. Sold INTC for a loss. 2.) Sold all PLUG for a profit. Net gain above of $1200. This freed up...

Re: A Conservative Policy Solution to Slow Down Climate Change?

@Hristo I watched that video too. Shared it on my journal. Paul Kingsworth may or may not have ever heard of 'FIRE' or ERE for that matter. I find it excellent that he was just living his life, following his passion (environmentalism), and because of this...his lifestyle saved money as a side-effect...

Re: Lemur Journal!

One more month and I'm on a new project with my firm. 85% chance I get a new project, 10% chance I take a different job altogether, 5% chance I hang on in irrational loyalty to my company and end up on the unemployment line. I'm re-reading the Gervais principle at the moment. I'm gaining new insight...

Bought more INTC on the 10% drop today. Despite beating top-line / bottom Q3 results...I don't in any way consider INTC a falling knife - temporarily being beaten down by COVID imo....

Re: Investments Trade Log

Thanks @giskard. Its a tough choice...I made this mistake once selling SQ too early but right now I'm already up 300% (nice problem to have)....and fearing tech bubble + overvaluations. Maybe if I get called away I'll consider selling put to get back in...not sure yet. I'm sort of speculating as well.

Re: Investments Trade Log

Sold more covered calls - SQ, DIS, PLUG. I'm doing these weekly as I see these particular stocks staying relatively flat / down in the coming weeks. Don't mind assignment on SQ and PLUG as I am overvalued in these positions. DIS I Just want to break-even and allocate elsewhere.
