Rapid growth and Nasdaq uplistings in the works

Voyager

Let’s start with Voyager (VYGVF, $22 USD), a US cryptocurrency exchange serving 49 states. They having been growing 30% to 50% a MONTH the last few months. Estimates by people smarter than me say Voyager turned $20M of revenue in March and a whopping $38M of revenue in April. We are hearing long term to expect 50% EBITDA and maybe 35% net income. $38M each month brings us to $432M a year with no growth. 35% of of that is roughly $144M of net income.

Up 64% for 2021. My thoughts on the portfolio.

Introduction

I am still up around 64% for 2021. This is little changed from my Feb 2021 update. I was hoping to be up 100% for the year by now, but I got ambushed by low gross margins in the Adcore Q4 report, even though revenue was up 219% YoY.

The Apr 2021 Portfolio

What I Sold

I have sold LMND, CRWD and FVRR as I believe tech leadership of this rally is possibly at an end and they are vulnerable to pullbacks since they have very high valuations built on huge growth assumptions. …


Laying out my investment strategy

In early 2019 I came back hard to investing. I had let it slide for a few years while I chased a business opportunity. The portfolio was beaten down still from the last round of mistakes where I over-concentrated in oil, gas and mining related stocks. I wandered for years in that wilderness, attracted by the drill it and sell it faux simplicity of many energy companies.

My self-confidence was gone. I had lost 80% or more of the nice pile of money I had accumulated before my energy and mining investments nosedived. I wondered…


Too much or too little will kill your returns

So you made it past my clickbait title? Let me tell you about about this one time. It was December. I had made nearly zero money in my portfolio all year. Depressing. Annoying! One of my underperforming companies was a pharmaceutical company we will call Alpha Drugs for this story. They had a Phase II trial underway on a drug. I heard a juicy rumor Phase II results were going to be good, and they were due out any day. I sold everything else in my portfolio put 100% of my…


New price target and new developments.

It was a little over three months ago that I wrote my thesis “Can ADCORE be a 40 Bagger?” At that point ADCO.v traded at $0.49 CAD. Today it trades at $2.75 CAD. We have a long way to go to get to a 40 bagger at $19.60 CAD. However, we are on the way now! The train has left the station! ADCORE for the win!

Enough hype now, but seriously this has been exciting. As a result of Covid 19, e-commerce penetration that normally took five years to happen, happened all at once…


Up 65% in the first six weeks of 2021. Adjustments have I made.

Introduction

Around six weeks ago, on Dec 31, 2020 I published my portfolio breakdown for the world to see. Perhaps 10 people read it the first month, but in the last two weeks interest has exploded! I might make enough Medium $$$ to buy a cup of coffee! Yesterday I made some significant adjustments to my portfolio, so it seems like a good time to put out an update.

Up 65% Year to Date

I am up an astonishing 65% since Jan 1, 2021, in six to seven weeks. Honestly, I am still…


Build your wealth with another 3X on your money.

Executive Summary

Greenbox POS is a disruptive financial tech company that improves the speed, flexibility and security of payments using their patented blockchain settlement technology stack. Today it traded last at $14.19 on its first day on the Nasdaq. I estimate it will be worth at least $40.00 a share by Dec 31, 2021. I bought shares from $12.00 to $14.27 today.

Valuation

Valuation, valuation, valuation. We always have to start here. Greenbox POS is a trendy (blockchain) company that appears to me to be growing revenue 150% per year organically. …


Bitcoin risk versus reward is a solid bet

Introduction

I passed on Bitcoin once back when it was $50 a coin. I almost spent $1,000 on a credit card to get 20 Bitcoin, but couldn’t pull the trigger. I had lost $23,000 buying stocks on credit cards right before the dot com bust of 2000. My tech stocks went from something to nothing in about a year. Losing the $23,000 was a mistake of hubris from a 20 something year old who thought he knew it all. Unfortunately my caution borne out from life lessons would cost me big time. …
