This Week’s Moves

Dow Chemical (DOW): Profit-Taking

Dow Chemical (DOW) continued to rally with the rest of the industrial sector this week, triggering a sell order I had in place at $55.95 on Wednesday.

The sale locked in +61.38% in gains on some of the shares I bought on March 9 for $34.67. It also lowered my per-share cost -1.56% from $37.08 to $36.50. My next buy target for the stock is $32.10 and my next sell target is $58.40.

DOW closed the week at $54.73, down -2.18% from where I sold Wednesday.

JP Morgan Chase (JPM): Profit-Taking

When the financials once again rallied to vaccine news on Monday, I decided it was time to trim my JP Morgan Chase (JPM) position with a sale order which filled at $115.95 on Monday.

In the current environment with record low interest rates and the potential of consumers declaring bankruptcy from job losses, seeing banks as short-term gainers during the pandemic just seems illogical.

Monday’s sale locked in +40.94% in gains on a few shares I bought back on March 18 for $82.27. It also lowered my per-share cost -2.13% from $88.30 to $86.42. My next buy price target for JPM is $92.25, near its most recent point of support, and I’m eyeing somewhere around $141.10, JPM’s all-time high, for my next possible sell target.

JPM closed the week at $114.57, down -1.19% from where I sold Monday.

Tesla (TSLA): Profit-Taking

Following this week’s announcement that Tesla (TSLA) will finally be added to the S&P 500 in December combined with analyst upgrades and new price targets of $540 and higher for the stock, Tesla broke through its all-time high on Thursday, prompting me to take profits with a sell order that filled at $502.81.

The sale locked in nearly a quadruple (+351.76% in profits) on some shares I bought back on March 12 for $111.30 and also lowered my per-share cost to -$140.53 meaning every share in my portfolio cost no capital and instead adds $140.53 per share in addition to the current share price.

Thanks to Tesla’s continued insane strength, I’ve raised my price target from the $275 level up to $361.80, a recent point of support (Tesla is also notorious for 30%+ pullbacks, so even though $361.80 is 28% lower than where I sold on Thursday, it’s an incredibly realistic price target).

I have no additional sell targets at this time as Tesla can be an insane runner and may have a lot of gas in the tank (pun intended) to reach even more stratospheric highs from here.

TSLA closed the week at $489.61, down -2.63% from where I sold Thursday.
