How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

AMAZON the Dark Horse Stock

Companies / Amazon Apr 06, 2022 - 05:13 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Companies

Blasted off into space on strong earnings just as I was getting ready to gorge on it's post earnings corpse Facebook style. Still I had built a sizeable stake via dozens of small orders in the lead up to the earnings report which painted a picture of a stock that looks set to put earnings (profits) before reinvestments, or it could be just a one off, i.e. cashing on the Christmas trade boosted by the last pandemic wave of any significance.

My current exposure has fallen a little to 1.7% from 1.9% of the week before as I took the rally to and ABOVE $3,200 to take profits in advance of further buying opportunities in Amazon later, especially if it comes anywhere near filling it's distant buying levels. The PE drops to 48.7 but on the EGF basis the PE falls to 28 hence why the stock popped higher so strongly.


The stock price short up like a rocket which acts as a timely reminder that most investors, perhaps 99% should NOT short stocks! This is what happens! Amazon looked like a sure bet for a earnings induced drop and look what it DID! DO NOT SHORT STOCKS because SODS LAW ensures you WILL LOSE BIG! Right now I am a seller above $3,200, the higher the stock goes the more I will sell, maybe not to the point of selling all or even most of my position but I could easily reduce it to 1% of portfolio from current 1.7% if I see it the stock trade above $3,200. The stock price 'should' succumb to gravity which means it should trade below $2900 once more. Though given the price action it's a tough call for Amazon to fulfill it's far distant buying level of $2288 which is what I was expecting Amazon to achieve., Still I continue to retain that distant limit order in case it eventually comes good.. However, I will be accumulating a series of small buys sub $2900, with the objective of building my exposure to 2% of portfolio, and further towards max exposure of about 4% of portfolio . The chart clearly shows that there are too many buying levels clustered together, therefore one can skip 2642 and go straight for 2526 and $2288, with the baby buys remaining at between $2832 and now down to $2642.

So to recap I am selling (taking profits) above $3,200 with a view to buying SMALL BELOW $2800 to build up my position to 2% from the current 1.7% (or less if I sell more today), with my big buys to take place below $2600, in fact my one and only large limit order is in place at $2288. So apart form small buys I may just hold off buying big altogether and see if $2288 gets filled or not. After all Amazon remains a borderline Primary AI stock.

This article is an excerpt from my recent in-depth analysis that mapped out how low AI tech stocks could trade during the stock market panic of 2022.
