Do you have a price target in mind or riding it until end of year regardless of price?

One part of me wants to hold through the year, maybe beyond.
Another part of me wants to sell on the news of new CEO announcement. Maybe 3day rule on the news.
Not sure. No stop loss has been made at this time.

DelPo is a beast. Even with a cold and a tough 5-setter in the previous round, he toughed it up.
To be fair, Fed wasn't 100% either.

STARTED WITH A $1/$2nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.

Wow nice deck rayz I am impressed.

Even more impressed that you're at nearly double your investment on enphase great vision trading on that.

It's a pretty volatile company historically. Unless they are honing in on a big contract with like a government that has the potential to hockey stick the stock I would take out half now that tasty white meat profit . (Edit: I thought I saw it at 1.40 but it's at 1.21 so id take out half between 1.5 and 1.75 STARTED WITH A <img /nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.) That way you're assured about your principle back and are playing with house money on them.

At worse if they go under you break even and if they do hockey stick then you're still in for like 80-100k which makes you a pretty hefty shareholder

Yup for obvious reasons (100% of your roll in a single stock) you should take a part of the money and run.

Re: STARTED WITH A $1/$2nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.

A 30% infusion in market cap caused Enphase to close at 1.53 Friday.

If you're still fully in Ray I think this think could peak above its 52 week high of 2.03 before rolling back. STARTED WITH A <img /nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE. you're in for a big win in this on man nice job

Good time to harvest some gains Ray and let your winnings ride! It would be best to gamble with house money and get your initial $100k out of play

Congrats Rayz!

Seriously there is a ton to be proud of in that post for any man: discipline in your investing/lack of greed, proper use of your rewards, the confidence you give your family and wife in having your house paid off( + the equity in its value as you've made improvements).

Nice work. You got about 100k to work with more or less? It's just me but I would put at least 30% into mega cap high dividend yield company's and 20% into 5-yr and 10-yr bonds. The other 20% I would put into something ETFs focused on 10 year growth for the kids college unless you already have an account set up like that for them. Then the final 30% idk you seem to be pretty sharp for sure
