I knew getting rid of The Don would be good for business...

I've always thought Twitter was a bad investment because it has inflated its future revenue projections by letting too many bots inflate its user base, but this might be a good short-term play.  There's nothing fundamentally less attractive about the stock than there was on Friday.

I still won't buy it because I'm a boring buy and hold guy.  I'm looking for an oil stock to buy and hold for a few years.  There have to be some deals out there.  ConocoPhillips is looking attractive.

Buy and hold, too. I owned Lululemon for about 3 years and gave up when it went absolutely nowhere (and they had the scandal about see-through pants material).

My simplistic theory is that women will pay whatever cost necessary to reshape their bodies. Same theory behind Spanx and their massive rise. I just had bad timing...

That's smart analysis.  I feel the same about Botox.  I think Botox will be common among men and women who can afford it 20 years from now.

I owned Wayfair for a few years and watched it's stock go nowhere.  I gave up thinking that they would never get traction.  The stock us up 400% since then.  Oh well.

For buy and hold what you want is Church & Dwight. Makes Arm & Hammer baking soda and Trojan condoms, among other things. Perfectly boring, stable company.

Been doing okay with Marathon OIl (MRO).  Oil drilling stock and its price is more or less consistent with west texas intermediate oil price.They overpay their CEO which I don't like but otherwise it seems okay number wise.

Was trading 12 to 20 a share for 2 years pre-Covid.  Had a nice run up from 4 to 5 bucks a share to 7 - 8 in November. Now at 7 and change.  Still more room to grow I'm betting.

I foolishly caught a falling knife on Carnival Cruise Lines which was my only stock trade in 2020, but I still think they'll come back to their prepandemic price and then some.  Social Security is a conveyor belt that moves money from young workers to older retirees to cruises.  And the pool of retirees is currently growing.

Yup.  As I mentioned in another thread, I told my folks who have actually said they don't need that SS check every month as they did okay during the 1980's and 1990's (but are happy to spend it), that I'm paying for their extra spending cash.

Carnival ain't a bad bet if it survives and if the vaccines are effective.  Quite a few "ifs" but still way off it's pre-covid levels.

Has botox gotten both much faster and much less horrifying than it was some years ago? Watched a few seconds of it in an old Pen & Teller Bullshiat episode and nope'd right out of the whole thing. Off to watch anything else at all.

There are always risks.  When Melania was "missing" a few years ago, she was trying to hide her botox bruising, which is still a risk, but people will take that risk.

I'm guessing you owned it before the company started receiving prominent product placement on Property Brothers.

"Hey, look at this cool new awesome thing we just got!"

I thought the pool of retirees was shrinking, what with all the COVID deaths in the 65+ crowd.

Farking Gilead. I know their drugs are really helpful to very specific situations and all, but every last one of them is a $60-80 a pill drug....

I have a cruise stock and an airline stock.  Picked the ones with the beat cash reserves.  They'll recover and in a couple of years I hope.

Green companies and ETFs are going crazy right now.  Tesla is overplayed and difficult to predict.  I have plug power which just got a deal that puts it at the front of the hydrogen infrastructure south Korea is going with.

I also have Pacira, which makes a local anesthetic used for post surgical blocks that's getting wider and wider use and just got European approval.

I'll buy and hold those and hopefully do well long term.

Oil might be good for a while, but in the longer term you don't want to be Kodak during the five or six years when the photography market went completely digital.  That's kinda where I see oil going.

I see once in a while some company go way up because they just got approval as the only treatment for some illness or other.  Then you read up on the illness and 1000 people a year get it.

I have a lot to say about lululemon or whatever but I can't. It's sausage wrapping that fine sausages decide to wrap themselves in. It's really not a consumer market. It's a prosumer and consumer market.

Dat arsenault.
