$Broadcom(AVGO)$ bears sounding stupid with their bear thesis. In a couple months I’m willing to bet Google will announce extension of deal with Avgo and you will have VMWare go thru right around then. This news was a replay of what happened with the bs apple and Avgo news of Apple claiming they will replace Avgo. Then months later a dam multi billion dollar deal is announced. Some bs negotiating tactics. The board of directors of Broadcom don’t just happen to time their insider buys so conveniently right before multiple deals go

$Block(SQ)$ SQ has massively increased their R&D spend since 2021. Has that paid off yet or are we still waiting for whatever that turns into? Revenue is roughly 4X since 2019. Good numbers but even with the R&D spend, you would think management could have come closer to positive net income.But I guess, mainly, I just wonder what the R&D spend is about. Basic math: if they had simply kept that expense at roughly 2021 levels, they would have been solidly profitable every quarter since.
Marathon Digital: Overpaying For A Mining Business That Overpays For Bitcoin
SummaryMarathon, a Bitcoin mining company, has no value as a mining business and trades at a large premium to its net asset value of $4.09.The company consistently mines Bitcoin at a cost 26-78% above the price of BTC over its history, resulting in a nonsensical mining operation with negative profits.While there may be some upside if BTC reaches new all-time highs, investing in MARA would lag far behind investing in BTC directly.Upside to NAV in $100K BTC scenario is only 19%, versus 283% from buying BTC directly.I would not recommend shorting MARA at this point in the 4-year BTC cycle.Cryptocurrency mining rigs in a data centerluza studiosMARA Far Inferior to BTC and GBTCWhile I wrote previously on my bullishness on Bitcoin (BTC-USD) at this point in the cycle, I would not buy Marathon Di

If BTC goes up, MARA $Marathon Digital Holdings Inc(MARA)$ goes up, if BTC goes down, MARA goes down. Pity that management does not believe in higher BTC and share prices, otherwise they would not just have exchanged approx. 400 mn of their 2026 notes into shares and diluted their shareholders. And coz they are constantly selling shares there is never a short squeeze. Currently the borrowing fee despite 27% of free float shorted is less than 3%. People who short Mara get more interest than they pay in borrowing fee.
