re: What Stock have you sold recently that toke off after Selling?
I had bought 300 shares of AMC back when it was $3.50/share. I actually got assigned the 300 shares on 3 put contracts I sold back in December as the price had fallen a bit below $3/share at that point.

I sold a few $4 calls the coming weeks against those, collecting a few bucks. Then I sold 3 $4 calls in late January for $110 (thought I was making out nice on that), then the price exploded to the teens

So I made about $166 from the options activity there in total, and then another $150 from the $50 profit selling each at $4 from buying at $3.50. So I technically made over $300 from that options trade back and forth in total.

Butttttttt, yeah. AMC hit over $60 on Jun 2 this year. My initial buying of 300 shares @ $3.50 for $1,050...would have been worth in excess of $18k if I just had held instead of selling calls against them

Just part of the fun of doing an options portfolio though. Gotta take the good you get and ignore the really good you might have missed out on.

I've been hard on FB for 4 years now and it's been a fun ride. That said, I sold 20 shares @ $262 a few months ago to buy some BABA. All FB has done is skyrocket and all BABA has done is plummet. Stick with what you know... Fortunately still have 60+ FB shares.

I can also say as a frequent online seller, that FB will take over the online marketplace at some point. I don't know how, but it's just too easy and too many eyeballs for them not too. I love their platform as a seller.

NVDA. Held between 515 and 540 for a long time. It’s about $894 now if you consider the 4/1 split. Ouch!

I sold SPCE around the beginning of May for around 20 and it literally took off not long after that.

Royal Carribean.

I bought it around $25 and sold it at $49 and thought I was the smartest guy in the room.

It’s above $80.

This is why the ole never buy at the top doesnt always apply. If you did that with stocks like MSFT, NVDA etc.. then you would still be sitting there waiting for the big dip 200 dollars a share later

TWLO got me late last year. Bought and got down 25%. Sold when it got back to zero. The following days it absolutely exploded. So pissed, but at the time I was ecstatic to get my money back

re: What Stock have you sold recently that toke off after Selling?
Yea I never went back to baba, and things like JD, Bidu a while back. Thought those were for sure winners. The the CCP got involved and fricked me with baba. Just saw JD and it is so low from what it used to be. Bidu screwed me when a few massive hedge funds dropped them causing a big crash. Had so much promise. The only Chinese stock I’ve swung well with is DQ. I’m staying away from Chinese stocks. CCP is a huge wildcard and it always blindsides you. I feel bad for all those homers on baba. They got obliterated

Although NIO looks like a good swing opportunity, among a few other EV stocks

Sold 10 shares of DE @ $212 thinking it topped out. Wish I would have continued to hold onto that one.

PENN is probably my worst beat as well. Bought below $10 sold in the $20s.
M bought around $5 sold at $10.
MVIS bought below $0.50 sold around $1.75.

These were all good wins just hurts to miss the major move up.

I sold GME at 10 after buying at 4 early COVID. Didn’t see it spiking to $500.

Also sold Overstock and RIOT when they doubled last year. Both took off like rockets later.
