The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

GrowGeneration (GRWG)

Cannabis finally caught a bid this week, and despite all of the negative price action market-wide, GrowGeneration (GRWG) and its recreational marijuana brethren popped.

GRWG saw a +14.36% gain for the week to lock in the spot of the Week’s Biggest Winner, and while GRWG’s still miles from its all-time high, you gotta start somewhere, right? 

Danimer Sci (DNMR)

For two weeks-in-a-row Danimer Scientific (DNMR) has been the biggest stinker in the portfolio. You’d think that at some point this stock would stop heading down, right? At least stocks stop at zero…

DNMR lost another -8.85% this week, earning itself the Biggest Loser spot once again. What a piece of s…

This Week’s Moves

Introducing “Cash Position Performance”

Over the years since I started the Speculation in Play portfolio, there are a handful of positions that I closed out by keeping the remaining shares and profit, but not including them in updates since I no longer intend to add to them.

Additionally, there were two highly-speculative, penny-stock positions traded on the Canadian exchange that had commissions return, so those two also aren’t actively updated each week (since the commissions make it prohibitive for anyone to trade them with speculative mad money).

However, many readers have commented that they would still like to see the ongoing status of these positions which currently includes the three winners: Chevron (CVX), General Electric (GE), and Twitter (TWTR), along with the two spec plays: Canadian Palladium (DCNNF) and Fabled Gold & Silver Co (FBSGF).

So, I’ve brought them back in the “Cash Position Performance” table which you can find above in each week’s update.

Danimer Scientific (DNMR): Added to Position

The epic dumpster fire that is Danimer Scientific (DNMR) continued to rage this week when DNMR plumbed to new lows on Friday, triggering a buy order that filled at $3.65.

Despite being a tiny order in terms of quantity, the buy still lowered my per-share cost a substantial -4.62% from $11.90 to $11.35 since my per-share cost is so much higher than where DNMR currently is.

From here, my next buy target to add to the position is $2.65, above a point of support calculated using Fibonacci Retracement. And, while it sounds truly pie-in-the-sky at this point for this unbelievably bad losing position, my sell target is around $17.00 where I will pull all of the capital of the position.

DNMR closed the week at $3.71, up +1.64% from where I added Friday.
