My Portfolio: 08/02/22 -- A Battle for 2nd
With $SHW (of all stocks) bombing after earnings and $PINS (of all stocks) jumping, my 2-4 spots are jostling around.

Pinterest, $TDOC, and $ME scare me allocation-wise, but not enough to sell any yet.

  1. $KNSL - Firing on all cylinders, 30%+, profitable growth in insurance is bananas.
  2. $PINS - All about ARPU and shoppable content -- doing what it needs to for now.
  3. $ABNB - Reporting earnings tonight -- curious to see any new product ideas/tweaks.
  4. $SHW - Dreaded supply chain issues -- will be safe long term.
  5. $BTC.X - Just holding 🤷‍♂️
  6. $U - This may sound dramatic, but the $IS deal could be make-or-break -- need more time.
  7. $NDAQ - SaaS and ARR operations continue expanding -- AntiFin crime investment for me.
  8. $V - Steady as ever, as dull of dividend growth play as I had hoped so far.
  9. $TTD - Looking pretty interesting at today's prices, especially with the $DIS deal.
  10. $ZTS - Another boring pick seeming to execute well -- animal wellness play.
  11. $TDOC - Oh boy. Not adding to the position currently. Not dead, but not worth any new money. The thesis is intact for the most part but not nearly as bright.
  12. $ME - Probably over-allocated to this one, but still an exciting idea when looking decades out. It needs to manage its cash burn better, though. What will happen post $GSK?
Which allocation scares you the most?

I hold $U also and it definitely isn't too dramatic to say the $IS acquisition will only bolster or break the thesis. If management can't pull this off, it'll be major dilution with nothing to show for it. A massive setback and a loss of trust in the executives in my book. However, a successful integration could cement Unity's place as an industry-leader.

Building Up Positions
Bought more $ZM, $KNSL, $UPST, $PINS, and $TTD for myself.

I got lucky and didn't buy yesterday like normal, guessing a drop might come today.

I also added some $TDOC and $LTCH to my daughter's account.

There is no change in investment thesis for any of them, just a bit cheaper now.

Two of My Favorite Financials
$UPST and $KNSL are on the shortlist of stocks that rose during February's earnings season -- but I believe they are just getting started on their long-term outperformance.

Upstart's AI/ML appears to be strengthening and is bringing in new banking partners at an incredible clip -- all while offering wild optionality years down the road.

Kinsale, meanwhile, is the only pure-play insurer in the excess and surplus insurance market. This hyper-focus on its niche has provided outsized returns to investors and shows no signs of stopping soon -- especially as they only have around 1% of their total market.

$KNSL reports beats revenue by 10% and EPS by almost 20%…it’s been a very volatile stock in the short run. Hopefully it’s a compounder in the Long run…the business first,band then the stock!
25 for '22
This year I plan to build out more significant positions in these 25 stocks - partially due to lower prices, but primarily due to long-term mega-trends supporting each.

Curious if any of these looked terrifyingly bad (or good) to you all?
