Coinbase Reminds Me of Apple, Netflix, and Tesla

This image comparing Tesla’s market cap to the market caps of traditional car companies went viral this week. I think there’s going to be a similar graphic for Coinbase in 5-10 years. I'm getting vibes from Coinbase lately that reminds me of Apple, Netflix, and Tesla in years past. Investments I made that have all (more…)

Tesla Update. Two Key Lessons.

I took some profits in my Tesla ($TSLA) position yesterday for the first time in 7 years. Technically, this was my second time taking profits, but the last I rolled my profit into Solar City ($SCTY), which was acquired by Tesla a year later.

Jason’s Portfolio April 2016

I thought it my be useful for myself and others if I list out the stocks in my portfolio and watch list. I have informal categories for each stock I own based on whether I’m looking to buy, hold, or sell. I’d like to make those categories a bit more formal in this post and (more…)

When does Twitter Stock become cheap?

I’m reading the book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari.

Since then, the stock has dropped to (more…)

The Long Case for Zynga $ZNGA

Aside: I’m going to try to blog here when I do research for stocks I’m investing in and in particular when I am sharing ideas with my mother. Explaining an investment to my mother and to the blog here are remarkably similar processes… so two birds with one stone and all. Next up: Zynga (ZNGA). (more…)

Would I Buy Netflix in the $50s?

Netflix lowered their subscriber numbers for the year last night, leading to a big 14% drop in the stock price today (so far). Fellow InvestorGeek Chris texted me asking if I’d be buying Netflix in the 50s. I personally won’t be buying any $NFLX stock today, but only because I already own a lot of (more…)
