My Benzinga Interview on 7/1/22

Touched on $PLBY (and $ALSN briefly) which are two of my largest LT holdings, some differences between investing & trading/speculating, and a bit about when one should sell (or not).
This was a great listen, Rod. You did well condensing the names covered.

I've been a fan of $ALSN for a while, but as you mentioned, feels like dead money while Mr. market continues to compress it. All in time.

Commercial EV production

It’s a major component of my thinking behind having $ALSN as a major position (currently largest due to $PLBY drawdown).

Seems rarely discussed on socials, would love to hear thoughts from folks!
I hopped on over to Twitter to see what others were saying and this made me laugh out loud. Not familiar with the name, but I think de-SPACs are all being branded with the same iron.

In the spirit of fun, what are some of your worst returning positions to date?

For me, it's PLBY Group $PLBY, which is currently down ~63% this year. Although, thankfully my cost basis is not that high. Ugly year for small-cap non-profits. Speculative position, and sized accordingly.

Savage X Fenty $3B Prospective IPO
As an investor in $PLBY when I see this I'm grinning ear to ear knowing the Honey Birdette brand & design team is working hand in hand with Playboy to take share in these segments, expanding rapidly stateside & seeing this price tag being floated for a Savage X Fenty IPO. Hugely under appreciated growth angle that will fuel margin uptake from 2023 onward in their Direct-to-Consumer segments. Looking forward to an S-1 for more details on how they assess & are situated in the marketplace.

Thing is, Savage X Fenty sucks too. The business model makes sense, VIP/Discount for lingerie, but the website, some if the products, etc, are lacking a premium feel. Rihanna and here influence does a lot of lifting here.

Agent Provocateur (not owned, just example), Honey Bridgette, are far better premium brands.

Bullish for $PLBY

The two biggest gainers intra day for me are $PLBY (+9.6%) and $KRUS (+8%).

Smells like a bear market rally to me.
Yeah likely some covering in $PLBY going on today. Pretty huge ramp in shorting at this mid-teen level over the past two months.

Red Flags
After sifting through $PLBY earnings report this morning, and seeing the delay of their 10-K, it got me thinking.

What are some of your favourite red flags when analysing stocks?
Too many people on Twitter are posting about the stock (especially when the rocket emoji is involved) 😅😂

PLBY Q4 2021 Earnings
PLBY Group $PLBY with surprising top-line, and noticeable upfront costs rolling in. Looking forward to hearing more about CF during the call, that's all I really care about for this quarter.

Their headline numbers from the initial report:

• FY21 revenue grew 67% year-over-year, to $247 million driven by a 131% increase in direct-to-consumer revenue of
$148.3 million.

• FY21 net loss was $79.7 million and adjusted EBITDA was $31.7 million. Net loss is largely driven by stock-based compensation expense, expenses related to our acquisitions and ongoing expenses associated with being a newly public company.

• Q4’21 revenue grew 107% year-over-year, to $95.7 million, driven by a 162% increase in direct-to-consumer revenue of $62.1 million.

• Q4’21 net loss was $58.1 million and adjusted EBITDA was $14.0 million. Net loss is largely driven by stock-based compensation expense, non-cash charges for the remeasurement of the fair value of contingent consideration and amortization of inventory valuation step-up resulting from our acquisitions.
