The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser


It was a rough week as all the noob traders throwing their stimulus checks at the market learned that stocks can also go DOWN in price. AMD (AMD) announced a partnership with Nvidia (NVDA) and was able to eek out a +0.75% gain to earn itself Biggest Winner of the Week. 

Revolve Group (RVLV)

Revolve Group (RVLV) seems to be weighted to the downside – whenever the market sells off, RVLV gets hit harder than the rest, but, when the market’s headed up, RVLV doesn’t see the same gains. This week was no different with RVLV getting kicked in the head for -13.46% and earning itself, once again, Biggest Loser of the Week.

This Week’s Moves

Airlines ETF (JETS): Profit-Taking

The airlines continued last week’s rally on Monday, leading me to take profits in the Airlines ETF (JETS) when it crossed over $21.00 with a sale filling at $21.17.

The sale locked in an +87.35% gain on some of the shares I bought for $11.30 less than a month ago on May 14, and lowered my per-share cost -21.77% from $11.30 to $8.84.

When the market started to roll over on the recovery plays including airlines, cruiselines, and casinos, I decided it was time to work on getting my capital investment out of the position, so I’ve actually lowered my next sell target down to around $20.00. My next buy target is near the ETF’s all-time low at $12.20.

JETS closed the week at $18.26, down -13.75% from where I sold Monday. 

Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL): Profit-Taking

Last week’s rally didn’t stop on Monday with Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) seeing a huge pop first thing in the morning, hitting one of my price targets for a sale filling at $24.71.

The sale locked in +102.21% in profits on some of the shares I bought for $12.22 back on March 17 and lowered my per-share cost -26.38% from $10.65 to $7.84.

When the markets started turning around later in the week, I decided it was time to get my capital investment off this merry-go-round, so my next sell target is around $22.80 where I will remove my capital and let the profits run. I do have a buy target, however, it’s $8.70, near CCL’s sell-off low and a price level I don’t expect to see this position hit again.

 CCL closed the week at $19.98, down -19.14% from where I sold Monday. 

Yeti (YETI): Profit-Taking

Yeti (YETI) made a stab at breaking its all-time high near $39 on Monday, leading me to take profits when it pulled back slightly from $38.44 to where my order filled at $38.15.

The sale locked in +51.16% in gains from shares I bought on March 9 for $25.43, and pulled even more profit out of the position, lowering my per-share cost to -$14.69 a share from -$1.48 (meaning the portfolio’s received $14.69 in profit for each share still held).

My next sell target is near $45.00 based on reverse Fibonacci Retracement technical analysis, and my next buy target is near $21.00.

YETI closed the week at $35.67, down -6.50% from where I sold Monday.
