Just bought 50 Uber @37.47. It's a trade not an investment. I just think that the stock's beating though deserved is probably over.

Sold Uber @40.86. Not bad for 1 day in the market.

Anyone loading up on WBA or CVS yet? Yields are near historic highs.

I’m really tempted to sell my P&G stock. I still think it’s an excellent company, but it’s priced handsomely

P&G has come up nicely, yes. If the yield drops to 2.5, it's out the door!

Ended up buying some P&G, I just think there's a lot of stuff to like. Great brands in a time when I believe people tend to underestimate the power of consumer brands, great cash generation, recently re-focused brand portfolio, good dividend (even if the payout ratio seems too high to me), lowest price in 5 years.

I'll take that in this environment.
Turns out I was particularly lucky and almost caught the very bottom.
Sold them all now for $107.45
I really don't like to sell*, but I made 35.5% net of taxes (26% on capital gain) in a little more than a year, and I wanted to up a bit my cash allocation that was sitting at 12.5%.
Normally I like it to be just under 10%, but in this environment I planned to up it to around 15%.
Keep in mind I have no bonds as, here in Europe, cash yields 0.3% in a CD, while German 10y bonds yield -0.1% (yes that's minus zero point one percent).

*looking back, this is my first "sell" trade in about a year, when I sold some Royal Dutch at 31 euros. My ratio of buy/sell is about 30 to 1 not including reinvested dividends

Is anybody listening to the leaked Adam Jonas call on Tesla?
It's really bad, it looks like the wheels are finally coming off

TESLA stock is literally getting slaughtered, it was only a matter of time.
Maybe people will start waking up to the fact that making money is not a completely irrelevant aspect of businesses.

Too many comparing Amazon to these Ponzi schemes, but “reinvesting all the profits from your established businesses to expand in new areas” (Amazon) and “selling stuff that costs $4 for $3” (Uber) are very different animals.
(I don’t own any amazon either though :) )

=> If the trade war is ended, stocks will go up. I figure stocks are currently priced according to the probability of ending/continuing the trade war, so long if you think it's more likely than the market to end, and short if not.
