M.S. Finance student. Just a small time investor with big time goals.
Ordered some toothbrushes from $AMZN. They got delivered to the wrong address. I called customer service. The robot on the phone understood everything I said, and I quickly received a replacement. A few weeks later was shopping for shoes on the app. Some of the shoes had an AR button. I could see the shoes on my feet with the camera. $AMZN continues to delight the customer. It’s #3 in my port. Maybe add more. 🤔
Do you think there’s been a drop-off in product quality in the last year or two? And if so, are you concerned?

Half of my searches start at $TGT or specific retailers because I don’t have the patience to sift through Chinese knock offs or drop shippers.

Cool chart from @wiijiiapp. I don’t know how I feel about $ADBE. Seems pricey to me. Is really worth that premium?

I think this chart is wrong? $ADBE has grown revenue at over 22% every year since 2016 save for 2020 COVID when it grew by 15%. @wiijiiapp What am I missing? How far back does this chart cover? Anything more than 5 years feels like a chart crime, especially if it isn't labeled.

Good amount of changes to my portfolio over the last few days. Been trading in and out of stocks more than I usually would. Maybe it’s the market getting to me. Harder to think clearly under current market conditions. I feel I need to slow down and think more before making moves.
Sometimes it’s useful to just step away and get a breather before you do anything

“The market seems to take aim at DoorDash (DASH), Airbnb (ABNB), PayPal (PYPL), Carvana (CVNA), Affirm (AFRM), Wayfair (W), Shopify (SHOP) and Block (SQ) on these sell-offs. It sometimes feels like they are supposed to be worth dramatically less. How many of these names are owned by hedge fund Tiger Global? Bloomberg reports that partner Sam Harland, who bet big on Carvana, has left the company.”

“The odd selling of tech stocks at 5 a.m. This kind of program can be either desperation or someone actually wanting tech down, given that many of these techs have aggressive buybacks that would buy stocks higher. The programs just overwhelm The "urgency" is odd ...”

Yeah Tiger Cubs were all betting big on a lot of those names, seems like many of have them have already significantly or completely sold off their stakes

Portfolio Update
Top holdings have changed a bit since the beginning of the year. Not really due to selling. Changes are due to buying.

In January update, I said "Looking to build heavier positions in FB, GOOG and MSFT as I believe they won’t be harmed much by interest rates and will keep growing." As can be seen, I have done that. Since January, I decided to accumulate $SQ and $SHOP. I think they are currently priced well.

In Jan., I also said "I am diversified across a good number of equities, nearing 60. Even my top holdings aren’t that heavy at around 5% each. I may slim down and concentrate some more." I haven't concentrated. I have more positions now at 70+. I still am thinking about concentrating holdings more.

According to Commonstock, I am up .10% YTD. Still haven't recovered completely from 2021 losses but I am feeling optimistic.
