WBA looks relatively cheap here. I know amazon threat etc, but its a consolidated industry so its hard to predict outcomes. Retail was easy to disrupt because of its fragmented nature

reduced SRG and SRC positions to 5% and sold TYO:7922 after a nice pop this morning.
bought STOR, SPG, BRX, SOHO, EAT and more WSE:SOL.

Invented new rules for position sizing:
3% position will be standard
5% only when the management is shareholder friendly
>5% only when i find an NCAV stock far below net cash or a diversified holding company like BRK or MKL.
>20% never.

Covered short call and short put on DERM with a small profit after all volatility was sucked out of the options. In hindsight it would have been better to just use a bear call spread to short it. But damn that vola looked so good, i had to short it too.

"It's interesting times ...  - as always!"

In 2017, looked at a few IPOs (in order to discover and learn).
Yes, interesting and...a lot of difficulty integrating the "narrative" into a profitable course.

For perspective:
https://www.topdowncharts.com/single-post/2018/03/14/A-Familiar-if-Ominous-Sign-in-the-US-IPO-Market

Apologies for the "ominious" title as the point of this post is not about predictive power.
Still, this has a "late in the cycle" feel to it and that may explain (?) the lack of enthusiasm on this specific thread.

I have to disclose that many IPOs with negative earnings are from the technology space and this is outside my reach (there may be homeruns in there).
But I can reasonably value biotech and the bridge from the narrative to a profitable exit is really hard to visualize even if you feel that animal spirits are truly getting to work.

Interesting times indeed.
