Get Irked's Speculation in Play - December 17, 2021

The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

Zillow (Z)

In a week of mostly red, Zillow (Z) continues to make its comeback, earning +3.70% and locking in its spot as the Biggest Winner of the Week. 

Danimer Sci (DNMR)

Danimer Scientific (DNMR) reported they would be converting senior notes and the stock positively tanked. I get that convertible notes into equity will certainly dilute shareholder value, but a -26.67% drop in a week seems a bit overdone. Regardless, Danimer definitely earned its spot as the Week’s Biggest Loser.

This Week’s Moves

Danimer Scientific (DNMR): Added to Position

Danimer Scientific (DNMR) collapsed nearly -20% on Thursday following an announcement that it was considering a convertible senior notes offering.

Typically, while a conversion of bonds to stock equity does dilute the value of shares, this sort of event doesn’t have such a dramatic effect which led me to believe there must be some other news event as Thursday was an up-day in the markets, generally.

A standing buy order of mine filled at $9.00 on Thursday, lowering my per-share cost -3.21% from $14.00 to $13.55, however, I’m holding off on additional buys for at least the Three-Day Rule until more information becomes available about what caused such a precipitous selloff. My next sell target is around $20.00, under the high of DNMR’s last bull rally.

DNMR closed the week at $8.90, down -1.11% from where I added Thursday.

Uranium ETF (URA): Added to Position

Uranium got hit hard this week when the markets were anticipating the Federal Reserve’s meeting on Wednesday with the Uranium ETF (URA) triggering a buy order I had in place which filled on Tuesday at $22.72.

The order raised my per-share cost +2.99% from $19.75 to $20.34. From here, my next buy target is $17.70, above a past point of support, and my next sell target is $31.15, just below the high of URA’s last bull rally.

URA closed the week at $23.46, up +3.26% from where I added Tuesday.
