egg on my face selling call options once it hit $14. I could be pocketing around 40k instead of $1500.

I'm keeping an eye on it now. If we get a bit of a red candle I think I'm going to buy back in just with profits from what was just sold. Roll the dice on it with house money.

I'm just watching in shame. I've learning my lesson buying during a fever in the past. Wiping tears away with all the profits I did make.

Taking profits isn't a bad thing. It could have just as easily tanked. I'm kicking myself a little for not being 30 seconds quicker with changing my stop loss but with the volatility there's some piece of mind. I ended up buying back in at a smaller position. I took out my initial investment plus a couple hundred and put them in something a little more sane. So I'm playing all with house money now on AMC. Lets get that squeeze to $1000 :)

Congratulations on the AMC surge! I hope you are able to cash in a nice profit.

I expect a dip today but who F’ing knows

Well, we got the dip. Almost everything is looking bad for me right now. Everything is red except for a couple SPACs and those I don't care about the price on. Hopefully we can bounce back later in the day.

I tend to get back in once prices drop and stabilize, setting a new floor. Will be interesting seeing what the next two weeks hold.

Ford has been on an absolute tear over the last year. Up near 7% today, 81% YTD and nearly 170% over one year.

I bought F in 2017 at about $11. It peaked over $13 shortly after and then tanked hitting its low during the corona crash of just above $4.

Hopefully they start paying a dividend again soon.

I'm up about 50% right now but that pales in comparison to what the market returned during that same time.

I'm toying with putting a trailing stop on it. But a consistent dividend could entice me to be a longer term investor.

Looking at the chart, I would be trailing stops too. I looked at ford one point but its about to be a higher stock price that it has over the past 5 years and that always scares me that it will plop back downward real soon. It was relatively close to where it is now and the gains by the time it got to here were too small to get me excited. Glad its booming for you though. too bad you didnt double down at $4 ;)

To be fair, buying any stock in late March 2020 was just as good. During that time, I wasn't trying to pick winners. I was just buying the whole market at that point. But yeah. Buying at $4 would have been sweet!

That's a significant breakout on that long term chart. It just has to hold now or it can retest that same trend line to the downside.... Which I think would be completely normal and healthy.

It's probably worth putting the trailing stop on. They're not going to be paying dividends soon. They're restricted from doing so for 12 months after they pay back their cares act money. I had had the same thought when I bought Delta during the crash. That act provision really kills some of the benefit. I've been thinking of selling it now since it's mostly rebounded and putting that cash into something that'll earn better.
