Recovery Speculation Basket

Airlines ETF


Carnival Cruise


What is the Recovery Speculation Basket?

The Recovery Speculation Basket (“Recovery Spec”) represents stocks that will thrive if vaccines are released quickly and we return to normal but have the likelihood of collapsing if more lockdowns occur. These positions are too speculative to have their own allocation and share a single allocation.

Currently, my Recovery Spec stocks are as follows: the Airlines Exchange Traded Fund (JETS) and Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL). They are listed as a single allocation in the portfolio breakdown chart each week. 

This Week’s Moves

Chevron (CVX): Dividend Reinvestment

Chevron (CVX) paid out its quarterly dividend on Thursday, December 10, $5.16 per share held or an annual yield of 5.57% as of Dec 10’s $92.63 closing price.

Since I’ve already pulled all of my capital out of the position, the reinvested dividend just serves to slowly increase my allocation of stock over time (plus, it compounds as the next dividend payout also pays on the shares I received this time around).

My next buy price target for CVX is $66.90, slightly above the low of the last selloff.

Revolve Group (RVLV): *Position Closed +117.05%*

Revolve Group (RVLV) saw some bullish action on Tuesday, making an attempt at a previous high where I decided to take profits with a sell order at $26.11. Then, on Friday, Revolve skyrocketed and jumped through $30.00. 

Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I decided to close my position entirely with an average selling price of $30.78 on Friday (a weekly average of $28.44), locking in +117.05% in profits over my initial investment started on June 13, 2019.

While I do believe RVLV might have some interesting prospects going forward, the pandemic selloff made me second-guess this kind of position, especially given my initial buy was at $39.06 way back when (yikes).

RVLV closed the week at $30.67, down -0.36% from where I closed Friday.
