There are a bit of changes since last time, first I got back into OPFI 0.00 although it seems not big enough, if it dips below $5 I will add otherwise will let it play out.
I have added more to OMAB 0.00 & SSSS 0.00 , both are way below what I want them to be at but I’m being strict with my buy ins, I enjoy a lot more paying price I believe is good rather then chasing and dollar cost average up (that’s not my style)
I did start position in OZK 0.00 Preferred shares for the dividend that’s due in February.
Also if you are interested in investing in OMAB 0.00 or other airports, check this one:
Lastly if you are invested in $IAC, there are news of Turo going public via IPO and since $IAC has a stake in it you can read about it here
Dividends for December:
For the 2021Y Review I would like to go over a few things:
Show some stats
My best investment(s)
My worst investment(s)
I finished 2021Y with +20.35% while S&P500 with +26.89% (in 2020 +13.56%, +16.26% and in 2019 September +20.31%, +7.77%)
When it comes to my best trades of 2021Y, there are a few that I would like to point out:
$IRBT, $OPBK, and $ORI/ FF 0.00
Both have played out the way I would like them too although $IRBT mainly due to “luck” aka short squeeze that happened in 2021, while $OPBK was just buy low and sell high that played out for 100% profit.
When it comes to $ORI/$FF both came out with special dividends that I spoke about and benefited from both.
When it comes to my worse trade of 2021Y, there are also a few that I would like to point out:
$DISCA and $OPFI
Why $DISCA? Because although I made money on it, I got greedy and didn’t sell out when I was up 200-300% I knew it was not normal for this thing to shoot up and yet I left (at that time) almost $9,000.
Why $OPFI? Because I really had no business of buying into SPAC before learning more about it, I got caught up in the “fun and groupthink” instead of buying it (as I buy most things) at MoS price (the current price around $4-$5 mark)
For the month of December I have listened to two books, well completed one and dropped one until later.
I thought originally this book is like The Outsiders: Eight Unconventional CEOs and Their Radically Rational Blueprint for Success but it turns out to be more for VC investors with a sprinkle of The Outsiders. Numbers/stats driven with some interesting information on VC/Start Up world but not really for value investors per se.
I will say it was interesting to listen to but to say that it was useful to me? Not as much as I would like, but if you are VC/Start Up I would say it should be in top five to read.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
The one that I started but didn’t finish and instead moved to something else was How Markets Fail: The Logic of Economic Calamities by John Cassidy.
It’s not a bad book per se but I think I can find (and I did) better time spend. It is free with your subscriptions if you have Audible, so might be worth downloading and checking it out (I know everyone has different tastes so maybe someone will enjoy it)
Here are some things to munch on…
