Highlights from the Week
Biggest Winner: Yeti (YETI)
When Yeti (YETI) rebounds, Yeti rebounds! The stock bounced +8.11% to earn this week’s Biggest Winner title along with +90.36% of Year-To-Date earnings! Yeti, the outdoor products manufacturer, continues to be a notoriously volatile stock with huge swings between its highs and it slows, however the overall trend is still up and to the right!
Biggest Loser: Build-A-Bear (BBW)
You probably saw this one coming. As you’ll read below, Build-A-Bear (BBW) once again missed all analyst expectations when it reported earnings this week, dropping more than -11% initially before collapsing entirely on Friday, closing out the week with an epic -21.27% weekly loss, easily earning it the Biggest Loser week.
Heck, BBW’s performance is so bad, it almost makes Canopy Growth Corp’s (CGC) third week running of losses look good! Yowtch!
This Week’s Trades
BiliBili (BILI): Added to Position
BiliBili (BILI) reported a relatively in-line quarter, losing less than expectations at -$0.11 per share versus -$0.12 per share and traded relatively flat on Tuesday before giving way to the market selloff on Wednesday and triggering a small buy order I had placed at $13.62, lowering my per-share cost -2.23% from $15.69 to $15.34. My next buy target will be a more substantial quantity at an estimated level of support of $12.34.
BILI closed the week at $14.05, up +3.16% from where I added on Wednesday.
Build A Bear (BBW): *Preparing Trade Closure*
Build-A-Bear (BBW) missed once again when it reported earnings on Thursday. Although it’s seeing modest e-commerce sales growth and announced a new national partnership with Wal-Mart (WMT), its inability to even meet (much less beat) consensus estimates repeatedly is not a good sign.
The stock dumped -11.21% on Thursday.
Although CEO Sharon Price John may eventually turn around BBW given enough time (and some luck with tariffs), my trade thesis has failed and it’s time to get out.
How? By using the Three Day Rule, of course.
I’ll let the price action settle over three trading days with Thursday as Day #1 (BBW reported before the market open), Friday as Day #2, and next Tuesday as Day #3 (Monday is Labor Day and the markets are closed). Once the price action has established itself, I’ll set stop-loss limit orders and begin the process to close the position and take my loss.
BBW closed the week at $2.45 with my position down -26.63%.
Cronos (CRON): Added to Position
The cannabis selloff shows no end in sight with Cronos (CRON) dropping through $11.00 on Wednesday, triggering a buy order I had in place at $10.71. Wednesday’s relatively small buy order still lowered my per-share cost -2.61% from $13.05 to $12.71.
My next buy target is significantly lower at a previous key level of support of $8.68 where I plan to add a little more earnestly than I have to this point.
CRON closed the week at $11.02, up +2.89% from where I added on Wednesday.
Revolve Group (RVLV): Added to Position
Revolve Group (RVLV) continued to get slammed along with the rest of the fashion retail sector on Wednesday, dropping below $21.50 and triggering a small buy order I had in place at $21.31, lowering my per share cost about 1% from $33.09 to $32.76.
My next buy target is another small order slightly lower at $21.10 followed by a more substantial order much lower at $19.30.
RVLV closed the week at $22.67, up +6.38% from where I added on Wednesday.
