Haha! At least Rocket Lab is up about 50% from its initial SPAC price!

I just sold a few Bear Call Spreads on the VIX at the 29 and 30 strikes for $0.23 per unit. In layman's terms, that means if the VIX is less than 29 on Jan 5, I earn 23% in about a month. If it's over 30, I lose 100% of the amount at stake (which is $1 per unit). I sold 8 contracts so there's $800 at stake, and $184 profit to be made.

My view from the street level says Wall Street is a lot more concerned about COVID-19 than Main Street, and there is little political appetite for restrictions in the U.S. Will hundreds of thousands die in the next 3 months - absolutely yes - but profits will be fine.

KLXE up 18% today, but after a brutal sell-off the past two weeks.  Bottom is/was IN.

KLXE
It's a oil support company.  The stock has bottomed, it has a low float, and a current market cap around 50m but projected to have 1b in revenue (seriously).  They've had some mergers in the past few years and appear well positioned for an upcoming boom in service needs.  Some believe they are heavily shorted and are ripe for a short squeeze too.  On paper, it looks like a shitty company, but so were/are the companies I've done the best on in the OG space since 2020. (CPE, CDEV, PVAC, OXY, etc.)  The worse the balance sheet, the more gain there is to have in share price.  Most of the E&P companies have already seen their share prices rise significantly, they track the price per barrel somewhat.  The services sector lags because their work comes later in the cycle.  The early quarterlies in the space are showing signs of improvement.  Crappy companies like BORR are heading up because new contracts are coming in.  KLXE fits in this space.  The biggies in this space are HAL, SLB and their performance is somewhat indicative of the services market.  This is not a long term hold.  I'll take my 3-10x and call it good.

Thanks for this post. The market cap makes absolutely no sense given the size of the business. Q3 financials showed they are close to positive EBIDTA and the balance sheet isnít really all that bad. Yet the market drove the valuation down to damn near zero.

Predictions are that US oil/gas production will increase throughout 2022 and 2023. KLX is well-positioned.

I bought a few shares from $4.44 down to $3.22. Today theyíre now all green.

Congrats on your low average.  This is going to be a fun ride.

RECAF pushing $10.
While I'm not pointing finger(s) here, I did buy RECAF a 6.5 based on this thread.
Current 5.48.

You will do well.

If you don't want to hold for 2 years, don't buy this stock. IMO, its a great 2 year hold. I'm up to almost 10k shares and holding until 2024 (or it busts lol) This year I think there will be a resource report and JV agreement and those should push the price up significantly, although I think some people have unrealistic expectations. My own estimations predict $15 per share per 1Billion barrels recoverable, assuming some very conservative oil pricing. and that is a long term evaluation, not a prediction of what the price will be immediately after announcement of resource report. Should be fun!

This thread has been hilarious.
If we had a equal-weighted portfolio of all the suggestions thrown out there I'm reckon it'll have done even worse than the ARKK fund since the start of the thread.

Just goes to show that having a good idea isn't nearly enough.

@vand i think you are right, most of my picks from this thread have done quite poorly, painful learning experience

I got in early enough that I still have some really nice gains.  With that being said, I am still sticking with it... this is not the time to jump out.  All the indications seem to point to there being oil and some wells targeted at oil trapping features being drilled this month.  If you believe in the initial assumption that there is oil in the Kavango region, nothing has changed to disprove that... but a LOT of things seem to be suggesting there is.

To be fair with RECAF, it is still up 70% since it was first mentioned and has been as high as 3X-ing for a short while.  Also, to be fair, "moonshot" investments are high-risk high-reward typically, so it's not shocking that most have been bad calls.
