Friday Pick’em: 04/02/21

A short week with plenty of action, from a historic margin call to a mega infrastructure plan. But something else has our attention this week!

In a short trading week, there was still plenty of drama. The fallout from the margin call on Archegos had investors on edge Monday, and we are still waiting to see the effects of the SLR expiration on the 31st. Biden also unveiled his infrastructure plan, but it remains to be seen how much support it will have in congress.

Our Stock Pick

Volume: 6.5 M
Short%: N/A

Our Friday Pick’em this week is ARKX, the newest ETF from Cathie Woods. ARKX is focused on space exploration and supporting technologies, one of our favorite sectors! Since beginning trading last Tuesday, its price hasn’t changed all that much even with some impressive volume. This is a long term play though, and we’ve learned in the past that it’s not smart to bet against Ms. Woods.

Past Pick’ems Review

It was a good week for our picks, as nothing was lost to the dreaded stop loss. BGS is getting close though, and it will need to turn things around quickly. DAR and ATVI look to have recovered after flirting with their stops the last couple weeks and CNXC continues its strong performance. Hopefully we can build on this momentum and add some new stocks to our hall of fame!
