Some things and ideas: January 2021

Posted On February 1, 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 […]

Premium Case Study: Worthington $WOR

Posted On January 29, 2021
One of my goals for YAVB in 2021 was posting more case studies: ideas from YAV premium that have played out (whether positively or negatively). There are a lot of reasons for doing so: partly for marketing purposes for the premium site, partly because some people get value in seeing fully written ideas and learning from them, and partly (mostly) […]

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 […]

Quickie idea: $UWMC squeezing higher post-deSPACing

Posted On January 22, 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 […]

Quickie idea: Atlantic Power arb / potential bidding war $AT

Premium case study: $GHIV SPAC-"option arb"

Posted On January 18, 2021

Premium post: Another worthy play (paywall)

Posted On January 15, 2021
My 2021 state of the markets was entitled “speculative excess and opportunity everywhere.” No where is that speculative excess more exuberant than in the SPAC market…. but that excess is creating incredible opportunities in tangential plays. Consider, for example, my post last year on Worthington (WOR; (July 2020 idea; substack / blog); closed September 2020 (substack / blog)). The basic […]

January 2021 premium update (paywall)

Posted On January 13, 2021
Hi subs, Before we get to the updates- first, thank you so much for subscribing to the premium site! Second, a quick housekeeping. This month’s housekeeping has three parts: I mentioned it in my 2021 vision, but my goal for the premium site is simple: 2 posts/month (24 posts a year). One of the monthly […]

Building conviction #neversell

Posted On January 13, 2021
I've had three connected thoughts sort of floating around my head recently. I've talked about how obsessed I've been with Peloton (the app) recently, and that got me interested in revisiting the stock. As part of that, I reread Implied Expectation's (excellent) Peloton write up. This line (you won't share the confidence unless you own […]

The Yet Another Value "Empire" in 2021: The Blog and Premium Site

Posted On January 7, 2021
Earlier this week, I posted my "state of the markets" for 2021. The summary was that, while I see several pockets of excess / exuberance, I see plenty of dislocations and opportunities. Towards the end of the post, I mentioned that I wanted to spend some time navel-gazing about how I wanted to evolve the Yet […]
