Get Irked's Speculation in Play - March 11, 2022

The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

Golden Minerals (AUMN)

Golden Minerals (AUMN) rode high on the back of the precious yellow metal this week, earning +21.07% in a down week. Year-to-Date, AUMN is up a whopping +71.54%! Even though that makes AUMN the Week’s Biggest Winner, it’s important to remember that this position is incredibly speculative and could easily turn from the Biggest Winner into the Biggest Loser.

DraftKings (DKNG)

From last week’s Biggest Winner to this week’s Biggest Loser, DraftKings (DKNG) gave back all of last week’s gains and then some, dropping -22.14% this week alone to make it the biggest stinker in a portfolio of smelly positions.

This Week’s Moves

Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL): Added to Position

Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) and the rest of the travel and hospitality sector continued to sell off this week with rising geopolitical concerns. On Monday, CCL triggered a buy order that filled at $16.50, locking in a -28.88% discount replacing shares I sold less than a month ago on February 16 for $23.20.

The buy raised my per-share cost +$2.80 from $2.50 to $5.30, still a -69.27% discount from my opening buy at $17.25 on March 12, 2020. From here, my next buy target is $12.20, above a past point of support, and my next sell target is $23.30, just below the high from CCL’s last bull rally.

CCL closed the week at $17.21, up +4.30% from where I added Monday.

DraftKings (DKNG): Added to Position

After a remarkable bounce in excess of +50% from its lows in February to its high in March, DraftKings (DKNG) returned to selling off once more, quickly erasing those gains and attempting to test its February lows this week. 

I made my move on Friday when DKNG tried for its $16.56 February low with a buy order that filled at $16.75. The order lowered my per-share cost -9.03% from $36.55 to $33.25, a total reduction of -37.23% from my initial opening buy at $52.97 back on January 29, 2021.

From here, my next buy target is $13.65, above a past point of support, and my next sell target is $39.50, just under a past point of resistance.

DKNG closed the week at $16.11, down -3.82% from where I added Friday.
