The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

SoFi Technologies (SOFI)

O.K. I’ve been doing Get Irked for nearly 5 years now so I’ve seen some really weird coincidences, but this week both Investments in Play and Speculation in Play have the exact same Winners & Losers they had last week.

I know. I can’t explain it either.

So, it’s Deja Vu all over again as the rally that SoFi Technologies (SOFI) saw last week continued throughout this week, adding another +16.52% to this outstanding fintech – an amazing achievement during a week when the S&P gained just +0.39% – and easily locking in SOFI as the Biggest Winner for the second week in a row.

Canopy Growth Corp (CGC)

It’s a damn good thing that stocks stop going down at zero because that’s exactly where Canopy Growth Corporation (CGC) and the rest of the cannabis sector seem to be headed in a big hurry.

Canopy continued to break down even more this week, digging the pits of all-time lows, dropping yet another -17.95% on what was an otherwise mild week in the markets.

As I’ve said repeatedly, I am not adding anything more to my position in CGC, and with it landing in the spot of the Week’s Biggest Loser over and over again, I am preparing myself to say goodbye to every dollar I put in this downtrodden mess of a company.

This Week’s Moves

SoFi Technologies (SOFI): Profit-Taking

The run in SoFi Technologies (SOFI) didn’t stop this week, with the student loan consolidator, bank, and brokerage triggering my next sell order which filled at $8.18 on Thursday, locking in +91.12% in gains on some of the shares I bought for $4.28 back on December 28, 2022 and lowering my per-share cost -3.45% from $4.35 to $4.20.

As a result of now lowering my cost basis below SOFI’s all-time low, I have decided I will add back into the position at $4.46, slightly above SOFI’s selloff low in May (which, of course, will raise my cost basis). My next sell target is $10.32, slightly below a past point of resistance where I expect SOFI to pull back.

SOFI closed the week at $8.18, unchanged from where I took profits Thursday.

Visa (V): Dividend Reinvestment

Visa (V) paid out its quarterly dividend last Friday which, after reinvesting for compounding, lowered my per-share cost -0.20% from $174.27 to $173.93. From here, my next buy target is now $175.08, above a past level of support, and I have no sell targets at this time as Visa remains a very small part of the portfolio and I’m looking at building it up, not selling it off.

Zoetis (ZTS): Dividend Reinvestment

Zoetis (ZTS) paid out its quarterly dividend last Friday evening which, after reinvestment, lowered my per-share cost -0.27% from $142.85 to $142.86. From here, my next buy target is now $141.77, above a past level of support, and my next sell target is $201.05, under a past level of resistance.

See you next week!
