$WEN Good News
Largest Shareholder Trian expands stake in Wendy's to nearly 20%.

Also exploring deals for merger/acquisition for the company.

Wendy's was a company I talked about and thought was quite interesting but I definitely
agree with Trian's comment about how the company has "lost its way after the founder died."

One more time (for today!)
Well, got this alert so I guess I’m buying more $WEN

No mention of it that I noticed in the article you linked to I hope they can find some way to integrate real-life delivery (the way it sounds like $MCD is trying to do)

Good morning contrarians! We aren’t out of the woods on Russia-Ukraine, or even close. As discussed yesterday, the Russian economy is very much behind the 8-ball and Biden could announce further sanctions in his State of the Union Speech tonight.

The conflict has impacted commodity supply chains pretty significantly, especially where Europe’s energy needs are concerned. If nothing else, it looks like buying any dip in commodities or commodity-related securities may be a wise move.

We also have retailers reporting earnings today, with Target ($TGT) just beating EPS but falling short of revenue estimates. Later we’ll hear from Kohl’s ($KSS), Nordstrom ($JWN), Ross Stores ($ROST), AutoZone ($AZO), and Urban Outfitters ($URBN). We also have Salesforce.com ($CRM), Baidu ($BIDU), Domino’s ($DPZ), Wendy’s ($WEN), JM Smucker ($SJM), and Hewlett Packard ($HPE). This all makes for a pretty busy earnings day that will in all likelihood be overshadowed by Russia-Ukraine.

Upcoming Earnings Calendar (Feb 28th - Mar 4th)
Hey guys! Here's the upcoming earnings calendar! Two of my holdings, $SE and $SOFI report next week, so I'll be paying significant attention to both. Other than that, I'm also interested in seeing what retailers like $TGT $BBY and $COST have to say about supply chain issues and inflation.

Good luck to everyone!

My favorite trade from this past month? Sold ~40% of my $ZION holdings at 68/share.

I still like the stock but it had more than doubled since I purchased it so I took the opportunity to take some profits in the form of LT gains. In fact I was able to recoup the entire investment.

What did I do with the proceeds? This has not worked out so well so far:

Created a position in $EHC at ~62 and $WEN ~21.50
Added to my $V and $KMI holdings (and maybe some others. Can’t remember rn)
Fugly day for my portfolio. $V selling off again. $CLX as well. Those are my two largest positions.

Then you have $TDOC. Thought I was out of the woods there. Nope.

Purchasing $ATVI not looking very smart either. $DKNG continues to drop. So does $NWL and $KMI and $WEN. Those are all recent acquisitions.

It's all good. First of all a reminder to be humble. Secondly, I'm in this for the long haul and hold positions for years. So will take the opportunity to add selectively to these dips
Mega week for earnings! (Nov 8-12)
Here are featured earnings we are paying attention to @ Fincredible.

The ones I'm paying close attention are:

$PYPL - Want to learn more about their plans for 'super app', integration of BNPL and if any color on rumored $PINS acqn, which is now dead (or never was there). I own some $PYPL

$PLTR - I think I'm the only non-bull on this company. I'm unsure of their technological prowess and confused by their corporate governance. I don't own and have no plans, but just curious.

$COIN - I have no exposure in crypto except via a managed investment on Titan, but I think this is a great way to continue to learn and try and get smarter

$U - I like this company a lot. I'm particularly interested in their non-gaming revenues which I think is a larger TAM. Selfishly, I'm hoping this stock falls after earnings (Sorry for the many who own it) so I can buy on the dip, but not expecting it.

$SOFI $AFRM - I view both of these innovative companies but are overpriced, and don't have as much moat as people give them credit. Yet always interested to hear about them to be proven wrong, and given my investments in $PYPL, banks, and various private fintechs

$EHTH - not Ethereum, but eHealth. Given they fired most of the management team recently, always interested in what the tone/focus of the call is.

BTW as of this week, for S&P 500 companies (plus other popular stocks) you can not only play the calls in real-time at Fincredible, but also read the transcript and monitor specific keywords in real-time. Check it out - https://app.fincredible.ai/latest-earnings
