The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

DraftKings (DKNG)

DraftKings (DKNG) wins two-in-a-row, continuing to ride high on competitor FanDuel (FLUT) being introduced on the New York Stock Exchange, and on exciting new prospects in online gambling. DKNG popped +8.38% this week and won itself its second Week’s Biggest Winner.

Virgin Galactic (SPCE)

It’s hard to say how much longer Virgin Galactic (SPCE) has for this world. Sure, it’s had some commercial flights, but this one just can’t seem to stay in the air (pun intended). SPCE dropped -7.94% on a week when almost everything else rallied, crashing in as the Week’s Biggest Loser.

This Week’s Moves

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD): Added to Position

As I theorized it might, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) wasn’t able to live up to the impossibly high expectations set for earnings and disappointed. So, on Wednesday, it was time to start replacing some of the shares I had sold in advance of earnings.

My first buy added 1.52% back to my position at $168.17, locking in a -6.94% on a fraction of the shares I sold at $180.72 last week, and raised my per-share “cost” up +11.39% from -$960.72 to -$851.26 (a negative per-share cost indicates all capital has been removed in addition to $851.26 per share added to the portfolio’s bottom line in addition to each share’s current value).

From here, my next buy target is $145.89, above a past level of support, and I still have no plans to take additional profits as this position is so profitable, I’d rather keep what I have for the long term.

AMD closed the week at $177.66, up +5.64% from where I added Wednesday.
