Friday Pick’em: 04/23/21

The markets managed to rebound after Biden announced a plan to change the capital gains tax, and another plan of his killed one of our picks!

Last week started and ended strong, with a major hiccup in the middle after Biden announced that he wanted to nearly double the capital gains tax on the wealthy. The market was able to quickly recover, but we’ll have to keep a close eye on this story… It has the potential to affect the markets in a big way if it sees any traction in Congress.

Kyle’s Stock Pick

Volume: 1.9 M
Short%: 25.23

Kyle’s Friday Pick’em this week is Cel-Sci Corp, a small cap biotech company engaged in the R&D of cancer treatments. CVM saw a lot of volume and price action on Thursday, with nothing really showing up in the news. We think it is because the results of a 10 year study on one of their treatments are due at the end of the month. If the results of this Phase 3 study are positive, this stock is going to really take off! We shared a video on our discord, where it was revealed that CVM had posted a slew of new jobs and had recently completed construction of a new clean room. All this info taken together makes it look like some good news is on the horizon!

Past Pick’ems Review

It was a bit of a mixed bag last week for our past picks. SAP, BUD and CNXC continued to gain while the others were flat or declining. ATVI and NUE have been slowly dropping and we lost MO and PLTR to stop losses. MO was doing well until Biden announced he wanted to ban menthols. PLTR started its run, but it was too late as it dropped out on Monday at the opening bell.
