One Week Options. Are They A Good Bet In Times like This?

Look at how these these four stocks traded last week. 1) What a great week for one week Call option players on Boeing even though the stock ended up down .83 cents on the week. 2) Roku. Roku hasn't yet recovered from a not so good quarterly report. Roku lost $1.13 on the week. (Netflix in somewhat the same space was up $35.780.) 3) Disney suprised. I talked about that in a recent blog. 4) Now Caterpillar. It was up $12.83 Now The D.J.I. was down .11% or basically flat. In good times Call options can be your best friend. To be continued. Here is how Roku traded on the day.

One Analyst Pays A Visit To A Company Shop

.As the title says one analyst pays a visit to a company shop (he has a big bag of junior stocks to research and write about) and walks away starry eyed. Only in Canada.
Here is the stocks five year and one year chart.
Here are the January 2024 Call options.
Thirty dollars down to two dollars a share, what a ride for investors. So many "let's go electric" companies have had to go back to the well, often many times to ask for more money which dilutes the stock price. See my previous blogs on this company. Retail investors have no stomach for these kinds of stocks which have had a poor track record of providing meaningful guidance. Yet the macro winds are changing as our governments are going all in. Consider this.
The world is going electric and little companies like Lion Electric are fighting for a piece of the action. So many electric vehicle stocks have disappointed. Names, in a random order like Polestar - PSNY, Fisker - FSR, - Lordstown - RIDE, Lucid LCID, Sono Group - SEV, Mullen Automotive MULN, Livewire Group - LVWR, Electrameccanica - Solo and Faraday Future Intelligent - FFie (.21 cents trading 58.3 million shares on Friday). The lazy way to play all this is just to buy Toyota and be near center stage of this electric vehicle ride.
One final note. On August 17th I wrote a blog on Taiga Motors, a Quebec electric snowmobile company and the National Bank had an "outperform" ranking on it. Guess what? Here it is now.
Go figure. *** Which company would I be scared of going short most? Well maybe Taiga Motors. Trail blazing companies such as this one sometimes run out of money as they go up the ladder of rising costs on the dream of getting finished products in high demand shipping out their rear doors. Honestly, I know nothing about this industry other than to think the bigger producers in this field are or only a season or two away from having a version of the same thing and have dealer networks and more marketing skills.
