The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser

Carnival Cruiselines (CCL)

When you sell off in as epic a fashion as Carnival Cruiselines (CCL) did (down a whopping -75.57% YTD), you’re bound to have a bounce, and this week CCL bounced +46.29% to earn itself the spot of the week’s Biggest Winner.

Tradeweb Markets (TW)

Tradeweb Markets (TW) has been an incredibly strong performer since its IPO last year, and even this week it gained +4.40%; that just wasn’t enough to beat the next stock up making it our Biggest Loser. I would like to point out that TW is one of only 3 positions in the portfolio that’s up YTD, just sayin’.

My next sell order is near the $20.00 mark with my next buy target is near PINS’ March lows at $10.10-$10.15.
