Stock Tips Thread (inb4 memes and crypto)

girlDog
girlDog

The thread name says it all: we trade stock tips for good (and preferably safe) investments. This isn't a meme-spamming thread or a pump-and-dump initiative; it's meant to help other anons out with good stocks for increasing wealth over a few days / months (preferably not penny stocks or day trading).

The Rules:
1) Don't be a dick--list everything you know about the stock and why you made the decision to buy it/promote it here.
2) Don't spam meme stocks like fucking CERU.
3) no crypto pls. We already have a tonne of threads dedicated to them.
I'll go first as a show of good faith.

I made $182 on Klondex Silver Mines [KDX.TO] in two days, and the stock is projected to grow to well over $5.00, so there's still time to make a profit. Other silver mines are doing well too (like First Majestic), but I haven't invested in them because I believe they're riskier than Klondex.

Hydro One [H.TO] is also a good stock, though mostly for the quarterly dividend of $0.22 and security of its stock price. If you can nab a hundred of these, you get $22 every 3 months, plus an increase in the stock of a couple dollars.

I didn't list it, but I also bought 700 shares of Mettrum [MT.VN], which ended off at about $80 profit for me in one day. I based my investment in the company on two things:

1) The August 27th decision by a Canadian committee assembled to work on a model for marijuna legalization. This decision will outline a model for legal marijuana distribution in Canada, and hence, is a given when it comes to bumps in share prices of all marijuana companies.
2) Mettrum is the most likely company to be bought out by Canopy Growth Inc. Though this won't likely happen any time within the next few months, it IS likely to bump up the price estimates on the company, especially when medical marijuana grows in popularity after the aforementioned legislation changes.

Hydro One [H.TO] is also a good stock, though mostly for the quarterly dividend of $0.22

meh its a 3.x% yield.
its track record is way non-existant for me to consider it right now
first dividend payout was 34 cents per share
second dividend payout was 22 cents per share

My AQN stock has a much longer history of increasing dividend payments.

While I wish you success, I feel you are playing with fire here (tiny companies, buying based on feelings) and might get burned badly.

I don't get how you can say AQN dividends are only 'ok' and then go on about Hydro One in your original post when it's yield is lower by a significant margin.
but the stock price moves way too slowly.

How do you guys analyze stocks though? I'm doing research into this at the moment, but I find it surprising that you guys never seem to talk about market cap/volume/"P/E"/EPS/ Patterns etc

Do you guys just make the decisions off their price performance/income statements/business decisions????

Right now I'm looking into learning how to read income statements to understand the current performance of a stock.

If you guys could throw me some key words for me to research and understand how to make the most informed decision when it comes down to investing in a stock, it would really help.

we just invest in memestocks to try to make fast money. be sure to set up trailing stop loss sell orders so you can automatically dump the stock when people realize the stock is worth nothing and it's all hype. learn about the different order types.buy MGT!

use the bulk of the your money to buy index funds (ETFs) maybe some REITs. don't waste your time trying to pick stocks. spend your life doing something worthwhile like banging whoores.

there was an experiment they did where they found that even professional stock pickers had no better ability at picking stocks than a monkey throwing darts at the stock listings in the newspaper. for real.

Thank you so much! Website is exactly what I was looking for on doing research on a stock.

Definitely a ton of data and trend lines that I don't understand at all. Hopefully investopedia and youtube can help me understand all of it.

If I can understand all that data provided on a stock I would feel more comfortable investing.

@Skullbone
I'm not trying to gamble. Stocks is gambling in the general sense, but most of these anons are just throwing their money up in the air on coin tosses. It's ridiculous. I'm not in for that.

@SniperWish
I can see how meme stocks can go up on hype, but I would not throw much money on that boat. I would have that as the least of my investments because I could probably have just as much luck playing roulette or blackjack at a casino. But the hype is real too so I might throw a bit in it, not much though. Just an in and out kind of thing, there's anons I've seen in this board holding on to meme stocks for the longest time, it's ridiculous.

I doubt that experiment. Would you happen to have sauce on that? I will try and find it.

I think I could perform better than an ETF, but that just might be my ego speaking. REIT's do sound like a safe investment if the economy is doing good, but I think the housing market is not doing so good right now.

Enbridge is rather volatile thanks to the price of oil. As a pipeline company, most people think that they're exempt from oil price changes, since oil always has to be transported, but oil extracting and refining companies will force Enbridge to renegotiate pricing as oil drops, which means less revenue.

$TTNP - USA administered looser regulations for doctors. Only were allowed to treat 100 patients. Now 275, meaning 175% more market cap. Looks like Braeburn (their partners selling and marketing the drug) are building a factory that can accommodate all the drugs in TTNPs pipeline, meaning possible future buyout.

$VRX - 350% upside. Bashing and all the bad news is done. Walgreens loves the deal with them and give them vote of confidence. This caused the big rally today. They were never going to go bankrupt, just got bashed hard.

$ORIG - not sure about this one but definitely undervalued. Oil causes me to worry though. Long play for me here

So far on my weak research I've seen that they got on a new VP that has plenty of experience and a few other good news. The thing I like also is a triple.bottom trend and it's on that bottom right now, at 58-66 cents today was a nice little profit but I believe it's a longer hold than a day trade, I'm expecting it to see a dollar or so soon.

Enbridge here is known mosty for natural gas.

I know for a fact it is regulated by the gov (not sure what level) and does not make a profit off natural gas.
It *does* take a profit from the delivery of the natural gas to your home
its not physically delivered to your door, but its some delivery charge on your bill that I assume basically pays for the infrastructure + a profit
How Do We Set Gas Prices?
Enbridge does not make a profit on the price of natural gas.
If you purchase your natural gas supply from Enbridge, the price you pay for your natural gas is exactly the same as it costs us to buy it from our suppliers.
However, we do earn a profit on the delivery of natural gas to your home or business, but only at a rate that is approved by the OEB.

I would say enbridge is a safe long term bet, of course they pay out a nice dividend too.
it's not in the business of drilling for oil, but in the distribution and supply of oil and gas.

"It is also focused on investing in residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) issued or guaranteed by a government-sponsored enterprise, such as The Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) or The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) (collectively, GSEs), or any agency of the United States Government"

am i misunderstanding this?

Supergrass

@Deadlyinx
known mostly for natural gas
That doesn't mean you can ignore its oil pipeline business. Enbridge is Canada's largest crude transporter (2.2m barrels/day) and its Enbridge Pipeline System is the world's longest crude oil pipeline system which also carries dilbit (bitumen diluted with lighter petroleum projects), and it delivers 1.4m barrels/day to oil refineries in the Midwest and Ontario.

@Deadlyinx
Here's a comparison between ENB, WTI crude, and natural gas. When oil's price was fairly steady, it was regular business for Enbridge, but when oil went down, so did Enbridge. Meanwhile, natural gas seemingly had non effect at all on the price. Enbridge's decline and subsequent rise almost perfectly mirror oil's and have no apparent relationship to natural gas's.

Very good buy. Target price is 3-4 dollars. They are a canadian stock listed on NYSE MKT and would be considered a mining services company. They are just about to break ground on a new mine in the Chilean mountains and the way things are going they are going to be able to secure the rights to the lease and move forwards on their project.

Agree with you on SWHC RGR and other gunmakers.

But the real play was DGLY - Digital Ally - a $20M microcap - makes "video imaging and storage products for use in law enforcement, security, and commercial applications." (i.e., in-car video cameras and body cameras.)

DGLY is a trading stock, not an investment. It's probably too late to chase it this morning as it gapped up 30% and hit +60% after 15 minutes.

But if you look at a long-term daily chart, you can see spikes every time a police shooting induces a riot. You can also see smaller spikes of 5-10% for TASR, while we're at it, but they're a billion-dollar company and most departments already have Tasers.

So the playbook, if you will, for a police shooting would be to buy DGLY on the day of the shooting (most of the shootings happen during the day while markets are open), but only in the most egregious cases of abuse that are most likely to cause civil unrest the following night. (i.e., those accompanied by graphic video.)

It's rather depressing, come to think of it, that this happens so regularly that one can use it to make money. But such is life in 21st-century America.
