The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

Nvidia (NVDA)

Nvidia (NVDA) exploded +8.68% to the upside this week as demand for its chips from gaming, data centers and AI sent the stock price headed higher. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have analysts put out price targets 33% higher from here at $400+, either

Boeing (BA)

Boeing (BA) dropped -10.07% this week after CEO David Calhoun suggested that one of his major clients would have to declare bankruptcy during a network television interview. Maybe keep that information to yourself, Dave?

This Week’s Moves

JP Morgan Chase (JPM): Added to Position

The financials have been getting slammed pretty hard during selloffs, and with good reason seeing as how they have exposure to some of the worst sectors including real estate, consumer credit, oil loans, and more. JP Morgan (JPM), the Best-in-Breed bank, was no exception and fell through my price target on Wednesday, triggering a buy order which filled at $83.49.

The order replaces some shares I sold for $115.15 back in May 2019, locking in gains of +27.49% while lowering my per-share cost -0.49% from $90.95 to $90.50. My next buy target is near March’s lows at $78.80 with my next sell target near $120, a past point of resistance.

JPM closed the week at $85.90, up +2.89% from where I added Wednesday.

Square (SQ): Profit-Taking

Square (SQ) took off when the markets rallied off their lows on Thursday, triggering sell orders I had in place which filled at an average price $78.98 on Thursday and Friday. The sales took profits on some of the shares I bought for $45.31 on March 16, locking in gains of +74.30% in less than two months.

The sales also “lowered” my per-share cost from -$29.70 to -$34.75 (meaning I have collected the capital investment from the position plus $34.75 in profits for each share I currently hold). My next sell target is slightly over $85.00 and my next buy target is $45.50.

SQ closed the week at $80.26, up +1.62% from my average selling price.
