$TTD short and long term outlook?
$TTD reports tonight, but I’m looking forward to so many more quarters regardless, as long as management maintains integrity and credibility, and then regulatory environment works in its favor or remains neutral to it. (UID2, regional gdpr equivalents etc)
I first bought $TTD in 2018, using a service most are familiar with as part of an owner operator portfolio approach. That was a post-split price range of $3-5 if I remember correctly. We then added in late 2018, before the correction in December, and then only much later added very large positions in the drawbacks of 2020 through April 2021. Due to the volatility I sold out a very large position before the run up in late October 2021(my nerves are definitely not made of steel!), got FOMO for 4-5 weeks, and then let it go.
This week, via an accumulator (option series) I’m buying $TTD at much lower but also risking a multiple compression further if near term outlook isn’t what the “market wants”. But Long term at these prices (sub $35 delivery) i believe that Jeff green and $TTD have built a momentum machine in DSP globally that will do well with an economy that does well. The continued shift to CTV and gaming will continue grow over 5 years l, and the trade desk is positioned well to capture a large chunk of it.
2022 is going to be challenging as people turn away from being indoors and online…I get it. $WMT $COST help ground my portfolio for that trend…but I’m not sure how to time the $TTD bottom so I tried it this way. 🤷🏾♂️
Thoughts going into earnings?
I’m NOT a growth investor and I was even digging in to check on some like Teledoc and Shopify, after having fallen so far recently. If I owned either and believed in them I’d sure as hell be adding. I’ve added to something almost daily as prices continue dropping dramatically and will continue to do so with the $5-$50 a day I can swing, chipping away at my entry price on my long-term convictions🧘♂️

@stonkmetal - a big thank you for this. Of course needless to say, I need to do my own DD to build my own conviction, but pointing fellow investors in the right direction is half the battle!
