The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

Canopy Growth Corp (CGC)

After what has seemed like an eternity in a cold, hard winter, Canopy Growth Corp (CGC) and the rest of the cannabis sector finally caught a slight buzz this week. While still a continent away from its all-time high, CGC’s +17.60% gain is nothing to sneeze at and easily earned it the honor of the Week’s Biggest Winner in a sea of red.

Dutch Bros (BROS)

What goes up must come down, and Dutch Bros (BROS), one of the most volatile positions in the entire portfolio, that means a pullback, especially in a down market. BROS spilled -10.37% all over the floor this week and landed itself the spot of the Week’s Biggest Loser.

Year-to-Date Performance

The Speculative Basket

The Speculative Basket is made up of 11 positions that cumulatively share two target allocations. While I have more faith in these positions than those in my Speculation in Play portfolio (why they’re in this portfolio), I don’t want a full allocation to any of them.

The current basket members are: Amazon (AMZN), Berkshire-Hathaway (BRK.B), Coinbase (COIN), Dutch Bros (BROS), Meta (FB), Rivian (RIVN), Roblox (RBLX), Salesforce (CRM), Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), Take Two Interactive (TTWO), and Twilio (TWLO).

This Week’s Moves

Block (SQ): Added to Position

On Monday, Block (SQ) pulled back from last week’s rally and triggered my price target which filled with a buy order at $102.65. The order locked in a -32.69% discount on shares I sold back on August 20, 2020 for $152.50 and raised my per-share “cost” +$6.15 from -$100.30 to -$94.15 (a negative per-share price indicates that all capital has been taken out of the position and that each share instead adds $94.15 to the portfolio’s bottom line in addition to the value of each share).

From here, my next buy price target for Block is $94.55, a past point of support, and my next sell target is $237.05, just under a past point of resistance.

SQ closed the week at $107.88, up +5.09% from where I added on Monday.

Meta [Facebook] (FB): *Position Reopened*

I decided to reopen a position in Meta (FB), the artist formerly known as Facebook. Even long-time readers may not remember that I did hold a position in Meta previously, however I closed it entirely only a few weeks after I started Get Irked with my final sale order at $178.20 on August 27, 2018.

Since I have no exposure to the social media space in this portfolio and Meta has become unbelievably cheap both on a relative basis to itself, but also in its Price-to-Earnings (P/E) ratio, I decided that I wanted some exposure once again, but this time it will be part of the speculative basket, not its own allocation, joining the ranks of the Old-Spec half of the basket along with Amazon (AMZN), Berkshire-Hathaway (BRK.B), Salesforce (CRM), Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), and Take Two Interactive (TTWO).

Thanks to reporting an absolutely dismal quarter, Meta is now more than -40% off its all-time high, so I decided to reopen a position this week with my first buy order going through on Thursday at $227.00. Thanks to the previous profits taken from Meta, that gives me a starting per-share price of -$295.25 (a negative per-share price indicates that all capital has been taken out of the position and that each share instead adds $295.25 to the portfolio’s bottom line in addition to the value of each share).

From here, my next price target to add to the stock is $185.65, a price determined using reverse Fibonacci Retracement.

FB closed the week at $219.55, down -3.28% from where I opened it on Thursday.
