yeah, I’m an idiot.
A lucky idiot! I shouldn’t play with Tesla on a Friday with the inclusion on Monday.

market shows closing at 13:00 on the app due to time settings.
idiot, maybe...not as bad as the ones who bought the contracts though. I believe you have all their money right now....so technically, great job.

People who buy options the day they expire...some how I don't really think you're taking money from the Najarian brothers on that deal

Enjoy the ride. Prolly more to come. The underlying business of this company has about as much to do with these price swings as goat and the mars mission

QS had a pretty good jump yesterday. I was half watching that about a month ago, but it seemed an unlikely mover. Microsoft was an early investor, VW bought in at 30+% stake and as soon as Apple showed interest, it nearly doubled overnight. Meh, you can't catch 'em all. :roll:

Pretty big pullback the last week
Yeah, tell me about it. Major losses on TSLA this week... high 5 digits. I don't see this much red too often...

56723

Hasn't stopped me from buying more shares though. Buy low, sell high.

I suspect shipping of the S Plaid next month will help invigorate the stock. Jacking the price of the Y won't help.

It's okay we are used to it when Vegas12 buys in
Told ya.....

but I already pulled out my original investment. Playing with house money now.

One of my marijuana stocks is the only thing in the green ATM.....I'm thinking of socking away my original investment there also. Up 200% .....not quite Dameon money, but I'll take it.

Can I blame the current administration on my investment woes?

There are going to be some major swings if Newsom gets ousted. CA will open back up and, like it or not, they are a major economic force. My take.

Yup, those couple of hippies in a Cupertino garage were smoked by HP, IBM, Xerox, DEC, Wang, etc. once they got in on the PC market...



Oh wait a minute...
A comment that I've never forgotten and have used it multiple times over the years when confronted by Tesla naysayers.

Sold 100 shares last week at $715. Bought them back today for $650.

Am I doing this buy/sell stuff correctly? This is the opposite of most of your strategies to buy high, sell low.

You scored better than me... I sold the shares I bought at $650 a couple weeks ago at $705 earlier this week.

Waiting for my next buy-in.

Is a social construct
bot some TSLA211217C630's on 5/17/21

Rolled out the balance of the position today as I don't see as much upside left. Bird in the hand logic.

some spreads left and selling calls against my stock position today. (again, bird in hand logic)

Keep emotions/expectations in check and stay positive.

Been a good run for TSLA past couple of weeks...

This is something I don't see often... small portfolio sample:

82646

The one loser so far today is TSLA. :lol:

It's usually the opposite.

Most of the stocks that I've been waiting for a consolidation have went parabolic in the last few weeks.
A correction is coming!!
I'm going to short a few...

Yeah... those days are gone. I'm wondering if we'll ever see sub-$1000 again. Outside of a split that is...
I got lucky! I had a bid in for a lot at $1000 limit. Dropped to $998 at open. Nice. Etrade secured me at $998. Already up $60 a share.

he’s already secured approval to sell the 10% in question
The 'taking private at 420 funding secured' tweet from '16 is still haunting him (them). JP Morgan just filed a suite

The current crop is nothing short of stock manipulation

He really should STFU
