    If I wanted to get into Penn or DKNG, but only have $500 would I be smarter to just buy BETZ and have diversity?

    Welp, guess I’ll buy some POMIX in the old Roth assuming the day stays red.

    Id be interested to hear peoples thoughts on this as well. Seems like a lot of these ETFs have a couple stocks that really carry the load, and I’m never sure if it’s better to buy a couple of the actual stocks, or get more of the ETF. I’m sure there’s an argument for both.

    I bought 4 Penn at 109.50
    and I have a limit order on ENZC at .40 . So I hope it drops so I can scoop it up. That's all $500.

    No worries man glad you avoided it., pretty much every growth stock is going to feel pressure with treasury yields rising.

    Almost pulled the trigger on that SENS dip this morning. I should have. I really believe in that company. I pitch the tech to every person I know with diabetes and their reaction is, "how do I get that?"

    The MFs in my Roth that I was referring to dont buy until after close, so it’s harder to predict what happens. If somehow it goes green by EOD I guess I can cancel if I want.

    I did that for a bit in here but haven't in a while.

    I'm a Life Sciences Headhunter and I've spent the past ten years speaking to people inside most of the Medical Device & Biotech companies across the country. I tend to buy stocks in companies when I really like the people leading them. A couple I've worked with and liked...

    iota Biosciences (recently acquired by Astellas Pharmaceuticals)
    BrainScope (privately owned)
    PerkinElmer
    Danaher
    Becton Dickinson
    Akoya Biosciences (privately owned, spin off from PerkinElmer)
    GRAIL (recently acquired by Illumina)
    AtriCure
    Hologic
    Luminex
    Cytrellis Biosystems (privately owned)

    Commons, sure.

    ER is tomorrow PM - I’m holding calls because they’ve gone to shit and maybe a jump from ER gets them slightly less shit but I sure as hell wouldn’t enter any new plays on them today

    Have been a bunch of Puts buys on them this week, too. Maybe hedges, maybe someone knows something.

    I was down about 18% at one point - but a lot of that is driven by two stocks I’m too stubborn to dump that I’m down like 60% in
