This Week’s Moves

Tradeweb Markets (TW): Profit-Taking

Tradeweb Markets (TW) continues to outperform even in a volatile market, heading higher later in the week when the rest of the market was headed lower. TW triggered sell orders which filled at an average price of $51.95 and locking in +45.89% in profits on shares I bought less than a month ago for $35.61.

The sales lowered my per-share cost -26.74% from $33.85 to $24.80. My next buy target is $37.60 and my next sell target is much higher at $65-66.

TW closed the week at $51.63, down -0.62% from where I sold Wednesday. 

Yeti (YETI): Profit-Taking

Yeti (YETI) has always been an incredibly volatile stock, and this sell-off shows the magnitude of the volatility when I took +49.70% in profits on Tuesday at $24.85 on shares I bought less than a month ago at $16.60.

The relatively small sale reduced my per-share cost a substantial -6.38% from $16.15 to $15.12. My next sell target for the stock is near past significant resistance at $36.55 where I’ll sell enough shares to pull out the investing capital, but hold on to the remainder to see if Yeti’s brave enough to break its all-time high near $38-39.

My next buy will be if YETI retraces slightly past the 78.6% mark of its recent run and triggers a buy order around $16.70.

YETI closed the week at $24.42, down -1.73% from where I sold on Tuesday.
