The Speculative Stocks....
#1
Most all of us have a few speculative stocks in our port.  Please share your favorite MOMO, or busted dreams, deep value yield trap turn-around picks here.

I guess my current fave is Olin OLN.  It's a chemicals company that sells ammo and other product to the US GOV and the recreational shooters.  They own Winchester but it's a small part of their foray.  CFRA has a strong buy opinion on them.  If anybody doesn't have access to CFRA reports I could email some propoganda, err stock research reading material. Smile

I only own 50 shares long but it is volatile and I sell covered puts on every dip with considerable success so far.  In the end I intend to be about 1% of port.  IMO it's only speculative if you pay too much.  Cyclical for sure as they sell chemicals. Did I mention the Div is 5%+ ?

What else you guys and gals got?

Your TSLA timing needs some serious work lol.  

Any particular reason we should consider buying any of your other specs now?    

While I am here F is pretty speculative.  I'll let you know if I still recommend it after earnings.  I do keep some long shares but I chickened out and bought back a few F puts today while it was still profitable.  The earnings report trust is just not there quite yet lol.  Lovin that F div if you don't get sucked in on a mini rally. They'll pay off that zillion dollar debt pretty soon lol.

The speculative non-DGI stock that is currently on my watch list for a recession purchase is SAVE (Spirit Airlines). These guys have figured out their niche in the aviation market (ULCC carrier, no frills, no promises, just basic transport and lots of a-la-carte options for upsells), and have remained consistently profitable for years:

I've even flown them. Sure, I much prefer redeeming frequent flyer miles for Singapore Suites or JAL First Class, but when Spirit offers their big front seat plus a checked bag upsell for less than mainline carriers want for economy, it is an easy choice. Share price looks tempting now, but will be even more tempting once the next recession hits. Transport stocks really like to go on sale during recessions.

I trade failed reversal patterns on a few names but mainly ES futures. Futures target is for 5 points, stocks target is 3% ish

Never have flown Spirit and never will, they cancel a TON of flights-non weather related.

I don't know if there is a statistical source for this data but I'd bet they are the worst in the category.

CHWY I've been adding to for the purposes of dollar-cost-averaging. Got the position down to a respectable -2.84% loss now. Not sure that's a compelling buy thesis. 

CRON was just a WAG with some fun money

I think SQ is going to be a fantastic holding for years to come, assuming they don't get bought out by someone like GOOG/AAPL/AMZN who wants to go heavy into the payments/B2B/loan space all at once. The value was stretched by any traditional metric when I started buying in the $30s. It is still stretched by any traditional metric at $80. 

Valuing these MOMO stocks is a fools' errand. It is gambling. I have a small handful in my portfolio for entertainment, and maybe one goes parabolic like TSLA someday. Majority of my stuff is in boring DGI stocks that would put most day traders and Wall Street Bets folks to sleep.

Statistically, they are middle-of-the-road these days:

So F's earnings are in. Hot garbage.

Glad I closed my puts today. I need to keep my F position small. Dividend is the only thing holding it up.
