I only got filled on about 1/3 of how much I wanted to buy to even build up what would have been about a 1/3 first tranche of GTAT at around 90 cents, hoping I would build the rest near 80 cents or lower, but the stock didn’t fade lower into my bids. So now I’ve got a 1/9th-sized position of what would have been a tiny position even if it had been 9/9th-sized, if you follow what I mean. So I have a negligible exposure on this BK trade, but I’m already up nearly 50% on it, as GTAT now trades at $1.35-1.40 as I type.

On the other hand, you still have a ton of still very momo’d stocks like GoPro GPRO Tesla TSLA or Facebook FB.
Speaking of GoPro, did you realize that GoPro with its current $11 billion market cap is now worth 2/3 of what Sony’s own market cap is at $18 billion? I think we’ll look back in five years and Sony’s per share stock price might be closer to the $90 print that GoPro’s share’s currently go for and that GoPro’s own shares might be closer to the $18 print that Sony’s go for. At those levels, Sony would be worth $90 billion and GoPro would be worth $2 billion. We shall see.
