This Week’s Moves

Virgin Galactic (SPCE): Profit-Taking

Okay, okay… watching Virgin Galactic (SPCE) literally take off like a rocket flying nearly +200% in less than 60 days from $6.90 to $20.16 has been a lot of fun, but at some point it’s time to take some profits.

On Thursday, SPCE pulled back and “stabilized” in the $18-20 range (if you can call that “stabilizing”) so I used a trailing-stop order to pull out some profits when it seemed to make another run at $20 from $18.

My order filled at $19.22 selling 20% of my position which lowered my per-share cost an astounding -29.76% from $8.77 to $6.16. I only opened this position on Halloween last year so we’re looking at an insane move in less than 3 months.

I’m going to continue to watch this stock’s price movement from here, eyeing a level where I can take the remainder of my capital investment off the table with my next sale.

SPCE closed the week at $17.21, down -10.46% from where I sold Thursday.
