Get Irked's Speculation in Play - January 14, 2022

The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

Las Vegas Sands (LVS)

For the first time in quite some time, China news actually had a positive effect on an investment when word broke that Macau would only permit a total of six (6) casino permits – the six already in the city, of which Las Vegas Sands (LVS) is one. The resulting +13.43% pop in a pretty ugly week means LVS comes home as the Week’s Biggest Winner.

Virgin Galactic (SPCE)

Virgin Galactic (SPCE) lost even more altitude this week when news broke that the company is looking at issuing millions of dollars in bonds which will further dilute existing shareholders. SPCE ended up dropping -18.55% in a single week, crash-landing into the Week’s Biggest Loser spot, a space this investment is all too familiar with.

This Week’s Moves

Danimer Scientific (DNMR): Added to Position

The unbelievable ongoing selloff in Danimer Scientific (DNMR) continued this week with the stock triggering a buy order on Monday which filled at $7.04. The buy lowered my per-share cost an additional -4.06% from $13.55 to $13.00.

From here, my next buy target is $5.85, determined using reverse Fibonacci Retracement method, and my next sell target is around $20.00, near the high of its last bull rally. 

DNMR closed the week at $6.64, down -5.68% from where I added Monday.

GrowGeneration (GRWG): Added to Position

The cannabis catastrophe continued this week as selling pressure pushed GrowGeneration (GRWG) into the single digits, triggering a buy order on its way down that filled at $10.25 on Thursday.

The order lowered my per-share cost -5.49% from $22.75 to $21.50, and, from here, my next buy target is $8.30, above a past point of support. My next sell target (if we ever make it out of here alive) is around $26.00, near GRWG’s high from its last bull rally.

GRWG closed the week at $9.38, down -8.49% from where I added Thursday.

Uranium ETF (URA): Added to Position

The Uranium ETF (URA) finally came under selling pressure on Friday, dropping through my next buy target at $22.58 with an order which, thanks to a generous dividend payout from the ETF over the past week, actually lowered my per-share cost -2.655% from last week’s $20.34 down to my current $19.80 per share cost.

From here, my next buy price target is $19.80, near a past point of support, and my next sell target is $31.45, just under URA’s last bull rally.

URA closed the week at $23.04, up +2.04% from where I added on Friday.
