I wouldn't touch that with a ten foot pole. It's a falling knife if you look at the past 6 mo.

That's why playing the rebound with option is safer, worst case you loose the premium...

Right now you can buy the Jan $3 call for 0.07 and the Jan $4 call for 0.02. You've got a 10% probability of profit on the $3 call and a 2% probability of profit on the $4 call. Good luck with that!

Also ROKU went IPO this morning a short while ago, only up $4 at this point.

Their book value is at least $4 after the new Walgreens deal.
How long it takes it to get there, and what happens in the interim, is another question.

I think you are looking at the 19 Jan 18 maturity, I was mentioning the 17 Jan 20 maturity in my post...

Ok, so that changes the probabilities to 13% and 8%. Those types of probabilities won’t get retail traders profitable.

Forget Rite Aid. Total trash company financially and operationally and incompetent management. Non-Americans you shouldn't make trades in American retail companies unless you actually can access/experience them. Literally nothing you can get at Rite Aid that you can't easily get cheaper elsewhere. No reason for this company to exist.

Citron is an one hit wonder with VRX. Fade their calls have been highly profitable e.g. iRobot

RE: 2017 Stock Market thread
Anyone here have recommendations for investment firms?

Recently moved the 401k from my old job to a rollover IRA and it's sitting in cash at the moment. The stocks that I had were at record highs so I certainly don't mind. Don't know a lot about investing so was considering paying someone else to do it at least for a little while. With the (potential) coming market volatility, should I have someone invest it? Leave it in cash? Sounds like a lot on here do it themselves, but I don't think that would be a good idea for me.

If your time frame is long and you don't want to think, dump it all into SPY and ignore it until you retire.

If you want something a little more mechanical and risk adverse, dump x% into TLT and the rest into SPY. x% is twice whatever this link indicates is the probability of recession. Adjust it every month as necessary.

I made ~10% and ~60% on your last recommendations, so this is one I will keep in mind.

Anyone have any tips for any stocks or markets they expect to be very high growth of the coming years?

A few thoughts I've not researched much:

- Airports with big in/out-flows of migrant workers and tourists and room for a new terminal
- Budget airlines with room to grow; hold WizzAirr, up over 100% YTD
- IVF, growing international market and likely at home due to male soyification, though PEs very high
- Chinese tech, growing market
- Food Panda / Delivery Hero, suspicious of their poor financials though suspect they will have good growth
- Gardening is the No. 1 hobby in the US and with an aging pop. and low cost of products it will likely grow and with cross over the the potential US cannabis market
- Genealogy is the No. 2 hobby in the US, Ancestry is meant to be IPO-ing soon. They have recently had massive growth in DNA kits, selling more in the last 12 months than all genealogy kits sold by any company prior; you can buy Ancestry via the stock of one company that has a big share; French genealogy company, Filae, has had some good growth, traded on a small cap EURO exchange or can be bought as part of that exchange's NAV
- Some company that sells whatever useless tat hipster millennials buy, so I can profit from the ends of their family line
- Work online brokerages like Freelancer, their financials look poor, but they are rallying after a big dip
- VISA, Mastercard - global growth
- Exposure to high-growth tourism destinations: Thailand, SPain, Mexico, Ivory Coast, all of South America, Japan, UAE, Oman
- Chinese Netflix: iQiyi IPO
- Companies that sell diapers to developing countries (one of the few things poor people buy); also baby food
- Companies that build automation devices to replace human workers
- 3D printing
- Companies that sell gym equipment to developing countries

Chipotle $2.70
Under Armour $12.00

Both might sink further but I reckon they could double in 2/3 years.

Im with you 100% on Visa and Mastercard. The amount of "strong buy" and "buy" recommendations are high, if you check for instance at yahoo finance.

Also Im considering US arms industry, especially Raytheon.

Only problem for me is that Im buying in foreign currency, so If the dollar would go down, I´ll be in trouble.

So many US companies are at their all time high these days, so it´s extremely difficult to predict if the party is gonna keep on going or if we are hitting the wall soon.

I would be cautious on Visa and Mastercard. Its hard to know how things like Applepay and afterpay, cryptocurrencies, p2p lending, etc in the long-term will affect them.

Does anyone see the Saudi Royal purge as a money-making opportunity? Was thinking of picking up some RDSB if prices drop. Dividend is healthy at around 5%.

Relevant, from the Financial Times:

RE: 2017 Stock Market thread
Apologies, dead link. Below has similar info:

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-saudi-...D50RN?il=0

I've been out of stocks for a while due to other opportunities, but have recently been keeping an eye out for anything interesting. Glaxosmithkline (GSK) took a hit late last week due to their chief scientist taking up a government job, so looking to buy some in the near future. My reasoning is that he'll be in advantageous position to support the firm in future (provided he doesn't have an axe to grind with the company). Dividend is currently just below 6%.

Any thoughts from more learned members on either RDSB or GSK?

Haha, my thought on this one was the opposite path with tattoo removal. So many just incredibly awful tattoos out there that one day people will grow up and actually look at or want to get a real job.

Also, Lithium and the other materials related to electric batteries/vehicles is a very strong pick, imo.
