I like those much better too, but there is a big difference between getting shares in the actual IPO vs. buying on the open market. Fidelity offers IPO allocations if you have an eligible account, and if they have shares available for your account tier. I would only buy Lyft if I get an allocation. There's no way I would buy it on the open market.

For conversation's sake, if you guys had $50k to invest right now with a minimum 6 year plus horizon... What would you buy?

Social media is going nowhere and Instagram is king. The ads are powerful. I buy shit off their all the time.

I picked up a small position in Boeing at $376. I let the naysayers and a couple pilot friends instill some fear in me and didn't pick up more at or below $370. While a lot could change in this narrative I don't think they are a bad bet at all.


Anyone looking at Smart Global (SGH)? They are down 40% in the last 30 days and 23% since they missed revenue yesterday. I was looking into them and thought they were a good buy at $25. $18 -$15 is very enticing, even if it took a quarter or two for growth to resume. I'm thinking of seeing if Monday drops below $17, maybe I'm being too greedy and should buy today.

Thoughts on SGH and entry point?

Got a small allocation of Lyft shares at $72 and sold at opening for $87. Valuation is absurd. Fidelity may blacklist me for future IPOs because of their "no flipping policy", where they want you to bag hold for two weeks before you sell your IPO shares. Ridiculous.

Celgene was an easy arb bet if you got in before today.

Without some kind of collusion to raise prices together. Lyft will be bankrupt especially if there is a recession coming

For REITs, I've owned ticker symbol O in the past. REITs might be a super good bet if we see interest rates drop further. I wonder how Euro money will come out to the US if German bonds continue to dive negative

I am going to invest in some of the upcoming IPOs. I'm looking at Airbnb, Palantir, and Slack, but may consider others. These companies are high-growth stocks and have relatively less overhead costs than many other companies at the same valuation levels. More importantly, they have economies of scale and propriety technology.

Mongo is disrupting traditional databases like Oracle, so the growth potential is massive if they are successful.

Mongo just crushed it with their latest earnings report. This stock is going much higher tomorrow.

MongoDB and Okta are great and valuable companies with solid products/services. I've been holding both on and off for over a year. MongoDB has been my #1 champion stock.

Barely holding $70 now, glad you got out and with a 20% profit no less!

In 2 years everyone will have forgotten the current Norovirus scare.

Not arguing that Chipotle (CMG) isn't a good buy at $345, but I personally think it is going to drop even further. If they miss earnings, which are reported tomorrow it'll take another dip. Also they are involved in a class action lawsuit with some 10,000 employees of due overtime pay. Regardless of how the lawsuit plays out it's still bad publicity at a time when their stock has already dropped 30% in 2 months.

CMG keeps making ATH's, $710+ today. Another one I wish I'd have bought more!

Bought Twitter at 34 and it's around 40 now due to earnings report and growing user base. I may hold for awhile. It's undervalued compared to other bigsocmedia.

Bought Booz Allen Hamilton in mid-2018 and it's up a ton now. Holding that one too.

I sold my CMG position on Friday at $709. A 105% return - and it took less than 2 years Smile

An article on their culture :

Shopify (SHOP) continues to crush the market, and reported last week :

Quarterly highlights :

Subscription solutions revenue $140.5M, +40%
Merchant solutions revenue $180.0M, +58%
Monthly recurring revenue $44.2M, +36%

Shopify shares have now increased 247% from my original post on them.

I think Facebook are kicking themselves for not buying this amazing business several years ago when it was much cheaper.

You fellas still going to be posting in here since it's one of the legit threads that deals with money instead of poon?

If not, what other sites do you recommend specifically for stock market talk that is "not too complicated" for us newbies?

Mongo Atlas is on fire, growing 340% in the quarter!! I am very happy with this elite company being the largest position in my portfolio.

Zoom (ZM) priced its IPO at $36, closed at $66 on the first day of trading (18 April) and is currently trading at $94!

This is an exceptional business, but is very richly valued now.

BB1 with the gains you seem to be consistently making I have to ask are you retired yet? You are no doubt one of the best investors I have ever seen.

Hey AS, Im doing OK and post here because I believe in backing the most innovative founders and companies of our time is the best way to compound your wealth.

If I get round to it this week, I want to research some interesting looking Aussie innovators - Audinate (AD8) and iSignthis (ISX).

I must say I think our timing is going to be perfect, re: the crash. Still a ways to go. Make some money and then be in harder assets when everyone else is looking at blood in the streets.

Get your passport ready!

I'm big in stocks/mutual funds but I think the market is way too short sighted and over reacts based on news headlines. The current bounce is being propped up by the fed saying they might cut interest rates. This isn't sustainable.

I still recommend Booz Allen Hamilton though. It has performed like a relentless motherfucker (ops am I still allowed to say that here?) and the outlook for security/surveillance and government consulting is good as the state becomes more totalitarian and corporations exercise more control over our lives.

The stock market is something I wished I got into a long time ago. Glad I'm in now and making positive returns.

Since we're at ATH's again with a pending crash looming around the corner, it makes it hard to go all in. Best bet is to go in gradually putting money in over time instead of adding a lump sum. Dollar-Cost Averaging.

New comers, for those of you fearing about a total market crash to zero. Well your digital money will be the least of your worries in that moment. Lead, bread and water would be the top priority.

I like were $ZS is at right now and its growth potential. Would you recommend starting a position at its current price ~$75?
