Discovering value in the wake of Archegos $DISCK

Posted On April 1, 2021
We're living in strange times. There's no doubt about that. 18 months ago, who would have believed that March Madness would be cancelled, or we'd go an entire year without fans at concerts / sports, or that the capital would be stormed? I'd guess no one. And our financial markets seem to have responded to […]

Some things and ideas: March 2021

Posted On March 31, 2021
Some random thoughts on articles that caught my attention in the last month. Note that I try to write notes on articles immediately after reading them, so there can be a little overlap in themes if an article grabs my attention early in the month and is similar to an article that I like later […]

A few more SPAC trades $FIII $TBA $KVSA

Posted On March 25, 2021
A few weeks ago, I said the tide was turning in SPAC-land. This week, I think it's safe to say that the tide has completely gone out on SPACs. A few weeks ago, an average SPAC merger announcement would result in a 10% pop. A good SPAC merger announcement (a good deal by a good […]

A Lucid Follow-up on SPAC-craziness: $CCIV

Posted On March 23, 2021
I've discussed CCIV a few times: in the lead up to their deal announcement, I discussed how crazy the stock price / action around the stock was. Then, when the stock crashed on the deal announcement, I wondered if that would mark the turning point to pop the SPAC bubble. But I wanted to do […]

What the fudge is happening to legacy media stocks? $VIAC $DISCA $NFLX $T

Posted On March 15, 2021
Something weird is happening in media stocks. Legacy cable channel / media stocks have seen their stocks go on an absolute tear so far this year, while streaming "winners" have been left behind. Year to date, AMC Networks, ViacomCBS, and Discovery have all more than doubled, while DIS is up slightly and NFLX is actually […]

$GTXMQ: a word on the record date

Posted On March 11, 2021
First, nothing on here is investing advice. GTX is emerging from bankruptcy. Please do your own diligence. I've mentioned GTX on here several times; I originally published the thesis publicly, but I did premium only updates on it in late October and mid-January. It was a good thesis, and it worked out well. I wanted […]

Quickie idea: $CKH bumpitrage

Posted On February 17, 2021
This post is another in a series I do on an irregular basis. A “quickie” idea is an investment specific idea that I’ve been mulling over and find interesting, but haven’t dove fully into yet. The hope is to provide the jumping off point for a discussion of an idea I find extremely interesting right now, as […]

Big Three Cable: still too cheap $ATUS $CHTR $CMCSA $CABO

Posted On February 17, 2021
Long time readers know that I've been a cable bull for.... well, a long time. Charter is the headliner here, as it's probably the company I've written the most about on this site, but I've touched on basically every publicly traded cable company at some point in this site's history. The thesis has always been […]

A Lucid look at the SPAC-craziness: $CCIV deep dive

Posted On February 8, 2021
I have spent a lot of my time this year looking and thinking about SPACs. I think there's clearly a SPAC bubble going on right now, and one of my predictions for 2021 is that the bubble will break towards the back half of the year as the pure number of SPACs outstanding overwhelms the […]

Short squeezes, gamma, and fiduciary duty $GME

Posted On January 27, 2021
I'm not that old (I'm 32). I can't remember the dotcom bubble, but I have some memories of the financial crisis (it happened when I was first starting to invest) and can remember plenty of weird markets including the drawdown in early 2016 (which hammered growth / tech stocks), the meltdown of late 2018, the […]
