The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

Nvidia (NVDA)

You probably already heard about this one somewhere by now. I had people who NEVER talk to me about stocks ask me about Nvidia (NVDA), who popped +24.58% after a record revenue guide during their earnings call on Wednesday night when EVERYONE thought they would surely sell off.

NVDA was already up huge for the year, but closed out the week being up an epic +172.06% Year-To-Date, easily locking in the Biggest Winner spot this week.

Canopy Growth Corp (CGC)

As I warned in my last video update about Canopy Growth Corp (CGC), when a stock’s price drops below $1.00 a share, it usually drops fast, and CGC was no exception.

This week, CGC lost its $1.00 support and promptly dropped down to $0.80 before bouncing a little and finishing the week -19.51%. With no end in sight, CGC takes the spot of the Week’s Biggest Loser and may soon take the spot of the portfolio’s Biggest Loser of All Time if it can’t pull up from its never-ending tailspin of doom.

This Week’s Moves

Nvidia (NVDA): Profit-Taking

Nvidia (NVDA) reported earnings on Wednesday after the close and ended up exploding to the upside. I very rarely ever make moves in after-hours trading, but I had to take profits as Nvidia had outgrown the portfolio allocation targets by full integers at this point. In fact, even after the sale, Nvidia is 8.42% of the portfolio where the target allocation is 7.14%!

My limit sell order went through at $374.79, locking in +2,291.77% in gains on shares I had bought at $15.67 when I opened the position on September 6, 2016. The sale lowered my per-share “cost” -$29.25 from -$97.65 to -$126.90 (a negative per-share cost indicates all capital has been removed in addition to $126.90 per share added to the portfolio’s bottom line in addition to each share’s current value).

From here, I’m going to let Nvidia continue to run hot, so my next sell target isn’t until $443.58, a price calculated using a combination of methods including Fibonacci, where NVDA will have dramatically outgrown the target allocation size for Investments in Play.

My next buy target is $234.15, a past level of support for the stock and more than 37.5% lower from where I just took profits. Why?? Because nothing goes up in a straight line like this. Sure, Nvidia may never pull back down that low, but this is why I have a plan for both directions. Obviously, I still hold the vast majority of my position, so I don’t need to be a hurry to replace shares I sell. If I can’t get the discount I want, then I’m happy with what I have. Let it ride, baby! 😉

NVDA closed the week at $389.46, up +3.91% from where I took profits.

See you next week!
