GOOGL in the Green

Re my trading idea, Alphabet has turned green.

A Trading Idea

I am laser focused on Alphabet - which acts well on an absolute and relative basis vis a vis technology and other constituents in FANG. The shares are now down by only -$7 (I added on weakness earlier this morning). My guess is that if the market mo...

After reaching the age of 68, I know a lot more than I did back in 1968. Here's my note to myself as I was getting ready to go off to college and then on to the real world.

Adding to AMZN and GOOGL

I have added to Amazon at $1635 and Alphabet at $1147. I am now officially "up to" small-sized in these names (from tiny).

Adding to AMZN, GOOGL

Adding to Half of FANG

I have added to my tiny Amazon ($1648) and Alphabet ($1153) longs now. Still very small-sized - but my strategy is to be a continued buyer on weakness, keeping a wide berth (in light of my ursine market view). But I want to own these stocks over the...

Amazon, Now Alphabet

I bought back a very small position in Alphabet (under $1160) on early weakness. I did the same thing with Amazon yesterday. Alphabet was placed on my Best Ideas List in late December, 2018 at $1001.
