The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

DraftKings (DKNG)

DraftKings (DKNG) entered the week as the underdog but between the Super Bowl returns and an outstanding revenue beat, DKNG popped an amazing +28.46% during a mediocre week in the markets, easily earning DraftKings the spot of the Week’s Biggest Winner.

U.S. Natural Gas (UNG)

Never, ever trust a bottom. That’s one of my key rules, and in the case of the U.S. Natural Gas Fund (UNG), it was once again reinforced. Inflation scares made oil prices drop on fear of decreasing demand which, in turn, caused natural gas prices to drop. UNG crashed -11.82% to a new all-time low this week and earned itself of the spot of the Week’s Biggest Loser.

This Week’s Moves

DraftKings (DKNG): Profit-Taking

DraftKings (DKNG) rocketed higher on Friday after reporting a blowout quarter  on Thursday evening, triggering my next sell at $21.16. Once again, readers may notice that I’m selling below my current per-share cost, however this is something I feel I must do as I believe DKNG will pull back due macroeconomic concerns in the coming weeks and months.

The sale did lock in +59.10% in gains on shares I bought for $13.30 a while back on April 28, 2022, and, as I said, raised my per-share cost +4.85% from $29.90 to $31.35.

From here, I will not sell until I can take actual profits (y’know, ones that lower my cost basis), which means waiting until $43.60, below a key level of past resistance. I will start adding back to the position in earnest if it pulls back to $10.95, a past point of support.

DKNG closed the week at $20.54, down -2.93% from where I took profits.

U.S. Natural Gas (UNG): Added to Position

I added more to my U.S. Natural Gas (UNG) position on Friday, when inflation readings made it apparent that we’re likely heading into recession and the price of both oil and natural gas fell. 

UNG actually gapped-down to open at a new all-time low where my buy order filled at $7.88. The small buy lowered my per-share cost -0.57% from $8.80 to $8.75. From here, my next buy target is $7.37, a price calculated using the Fibonacci Method, and my next sell target is $10.58, just under a key point of past resistance.

UNG closed the week at $7.76, down -1.52% from where I added.
