The most dangerous words in investing are “this time is different”. For years, one company has been something of the widow-maker trade for smaller event driven investors…. But I think this time is different.

Updates on two of my favorite ideas to end the month! IAC and GTX (disclosure: in bankruptcy, buyer beware)

COVID has introduced an unbelievable step change in retailing. 10 years of “offline to online” sales share shift happened overnight. The results can be seen in the stock market: anything exposed to physical retail has been slaughtered, while online retailers have soared. I suspect there’s opportunity in that divergence. Once things normalize (i.e. we have […]

There are a lot of different types of investing that can work. I tend to gravitate more towards asset plays (this company owns $100 worth of assets and trades for $50). Some people like compounders more (companies they think can grow their net worth by 15%+ annually for decades, so even if they pay a […]

This insurance company could easily be worth double today's share price.

Probably not a sale candidate (yet), but a double or more if and when it happens.
I’ve been debating writing this company up for the premium site for a while. On a risk/reward basis, this company is my favorite idea: it’s in a sector I know and love, it’s a huge beneficiary of COVID / work from home, and I think the stock is screamingly cheap.
However, the company is rather levered, smaller, and has been written up elsewhere a few times, so I’ve been hesitant to put them on the premium blog. However, recent events have changed that: an unlikely potential catalyst has emerged, and if it comes to pass shares could easily more than double in a very short time frame. Given that, I felt it would be a disservice not to write them up.
Plus, I’ve written so many ideas this month I figured you wouldn’t hold it against me if I added one more that had already been written a bit elsewhere!

NKLA is a speculative bubble, but here's a way to play the bubble for free.

In hindsight, I’m not sure we’ll ever see a weirder period for M&A than February 2020. Companies were getting bought for big numbers, only to turn out to be worthless a few months later.

A summary given time sensitivity.
