The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

Grow Generation (GRWG)

After crashing to a new all-time low this week, Grow Generation (GRWG) pulled the typical cannabis-sector flip-flop, rocketing higher to actually finish the week up +11.40% and becoming the Week’s Biggest Winner. Go figure.

Pinterest (PINS)

Pinterest (PINS) actually reported an upside surprise of a quarterly earnings report this week, however their forward guidance left a lot to be desired. As a result, investors “unpinned” and sold Pinterest down -16.06%, locking it in for the Week’s Biggest Loser.

This Week’s Moves

Grow Generation (GRWG): Added to Position

The cannabis sector continues to get slammed with many stocks making new all-time lows. Grow Generation (GRWG) was no exception, breaking below it’s all-time low on Tuesday and triggering my next buy which filled at $2.90.

The buy lowered my per-share cost -4.79% from $15.65 to $14.90. From here, my next buy target is $2.07, a price calculated using the Fibonacci Method, and my next sell target is $16.50, just below the next point of resistance above my new cost basis.

GRWG closed the week at $3.42, up +17.93% from where I added Tuesday.

ProShares UltraShort QQQ (QID): Added to Position

Tech stocks rallied spectacularly this week, so that meant my inverse QQQ ETF dropped as the NASDAQ rose, triggering my next buy order on Friday which filled at $17.51 and lowered my per-share cost -1.88% from $19.11 to $18.75.

From here, my next buy target is $16.76, above a past level of support, and my next sell target is $19.14, just under a previous point of resistance.

QID closed the week at $17.45, down -0.34% from where I added Friday.

ProShares UltraPro SPY (SPXU): Added to Position

With the S&P 500 continuing to rally, I once again added a bit to my short position using the leveraged inverse ETF from ProShares, SPXU, with a buy on Friday that filled at $13.11. The buy lowered my per-share cost -0.72% from $13.90 to $13.80.

From here, my next buy target is $12.90, slightly above a past point of support, and my next sell target is $14.85, below the 50% retracement of the SPXU’s move down from its March high to the current levels.

SPXU closed the week at $12.97, down -1.07% from where I added Friday.
