Stock Picks

What a week for anyone hodling AMC! Lots of other heavily shorted stocks had great weeks as well, such as SPCE, BBBY and MVIS. The rest of the markets were up as well, and Biden unveiled his proposed budget ($6 Trillion!). We have two weeks to look through after enjoying a little vacation, so let’s see how our picks fared while we were gone… and what we came up with for next week.

Kyle’s Stock Pick

Volume: 116 M
Short%: 9.01

Blackberry is another heavily shorted stock that has been seeing some positive movement this week. You may remember them as the makers of the once popular cell phones, but they kinda fell off a cliff after Apple dominated the markets with the iPhone. What you may not know is that Blackberry is still a solid company, albeit with a focus now on security software. We’re riding this one for the potential to run in tandem with the other meme stocks, but even if that doesn’t happen, it’s still got potential as a turnaround candidate.

Bonus Pick

Volume: 12 M
Short%: 14.55

We got this bonus pick of Air BnB from former guest Victorio Stefanov. He shared this on his twitter last Wednesday, after noticing a setup similar to BYND and PTON. ABNB easily held the $130 mark before starting it’s climb the next day. Currently around $140, Vico thinks this one has the potential to return to the $160-$170 range. We’ve seen his picks do rather well since we started following him, so we’re going to ride this trade with him!

Past Pick’ems Review

Surprisingly, not much changed with most of our stocks. There were, however, two exceptions. First was SABR, which starting doing exactly what we thought. After falling from terrible earnings, it has started it’s upward climb again. Second was AMC… and wow, nearly 100% gains even after falling enough to trip the 30% stop loss we gave it. We’re tempted to throw it back on the list, as both Dan and I are holding our shares with no stops in place… in fact, let’s go ahead and ride it again with a 50% stop this time!
