Portfolio Update – WEEK 19 (May 04th to May 10th)
Hello, how are you all?
Portfolio has 5 weeks in a row in profit! This week rallied +10.23%, AWESOME! The Nasdaq Composite has climbed more than 35% off its lows and is now actually up 1.6% for the year. Consequently, most of the portfolio is made up of technology companies and momentum stocks, what has pushed results to high levels in 2020. In conclusion, the strategy continues to work surpassing the three main Wall Street indices. My wife and I were confined at home for 59 days. Check it out the stats https://etoro.tw/2SPLA85 .

(Seeking Alpha) Stocks finished bright green Friday to clinch a weekly gain, breaking two straight weeks of declines, as investors looked past the ugliest monthly jobs report on record that showed the U.S. losing 20.5 million jobs in April to bring the unemployment rate to 14.7%. But the numbers were just old news to investors, who are more interested in where the jobs market will move in the months ahead, which helps explain the apparent disconnect between a miserable labor market and a strong stock market. For the week, the Dow gained +2.5%, the S&P 500 jumped +3.5% and the Nasdaq rallied +6%. The S&P 500 has now rebounded more than 30% from its COVID-19 low and is just 13.5% away from its record high, while the Nasdaq Composite has climbed more than 35% off its lows and is now actually up 1.6% for the year.

I closed $CDW , bought $AMD.
Stocks/ETFs on my radar and that interest me: TSLA, NFLX, MELI, ZM, and ADBE .
AMD reported strong Q1 results that the market viewed as mixed. The chip company remains on track for substantial sequential revenue growth in 2H of 2020. AMD should take meaningful market share from Intel this year. The stock remains cheap based on out year EPS projections of over $3.50 per share. I am bullish in AMD.
Shopify (SHOP) and Pinterest (PINS) are launching a new app together. Shopify merchants in the U.S. and Canada can share their products to about 350M Pinterest users through the app. After it is installed, the app will allow a Shopify merchant to deploy a tag on their website, upload their product catalog and quickly publish in-stock Product Pins. Businesses will also see a shop tab appear on their profile as an additional way for their products to be discovered. The integration will roll out to Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the U.K. in the coming weeks. Shares of Shopify are up 78.32% YTD. I’m bullish in $SHOP.
Starting next week, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) will reopen retail stores in Alabama, Alaska, Idaho, and South Carolina. Apple has 271 stores in the United States, but only six in the reopening states. The stores will have safety measures in place, including temperature checks, social distancing requirements, limits on the number of customers inside, and face masks for employees. Most Apple stores outside of China have been closed since March due to the coronavirus pandemic. The tech giant has recently reopened a few locations in South Korea, Australia, and Germany. For now, the retail stores will focus on fixing products rather than pushing the sales of new products like the low-cost iPhone SE or the new MacBook and iPad models. Despite the closure, Apple’s recent earnings report included record retail sales, bolstered by “off the charts” online sales.
Facebook names members to oversight board – Labeled by some as Facebook’s (NASDAQ:FB) “Supreme Court,” the independent board will be able to overturn decisions by the company and CEO Mark Zuckerberg on whether individual pieces of content should be allowed on Facebook and Instagram. The project could turn into a new standard for the industry, with some seeing the experiment expanding to YouTube (GOOG, GOOGL), Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) or other platforms that make content moderation decisions. “We are basically building a new model for platform governance,” said Helle Thorning-Schmidt, former prime minister of Denmark and one of the board’s four co-chairs.
