      I prefer to buy Apple while the prices are down. Apple has a huge loyal customer base who will buy every single model of iPhone that they release. To them, it could be like a collector's set, a kind of status, pure love and support for the company, a kind of cult following etc. Either way, it is providing a kind of guarantee for a steady inflow of revenue. I guess I'll be keeping my Apple shares for long.

      Christmas, world's most "Festive" holiday. Retail therapy - bring it on !

      Successfully billed as the "Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" - 22nd December - Christmas has been celebrated throughout all corners of the world -  especially when it comes to the commerce aspect of this festive holiday, agree ? If we attempt to dissect and provide reasons what makes Christmas, Christmas ? Mmm... its because : after a full 11 months of non-stop {whatever}, its "time" to dial down a notch and spend time with people you loved what better way to show your love, affection and appreciation thru gifts don't you agree the "excitement" is ever in the air when buying a gift and wrapping it ? don't you agree that the "rush" & "feel good" effect when receiving a gift ? its that time of the year to live life a little "dangerously" by pampering oneself with "wants" instead of "needs" ? And if you live in a temperate climate country, with the falling temperature - somehow its Nature's way of getting you to slow down a little as well. "Enjoy life" if you know what I mean. Besides consumers being acutely aware of the magic that Christmas brings - so do retailers.  Traditionally, it used to be the brick-and-mortar stores; all decked out in its full Christmas splendor. Marketingly, its to help spread the joy. Afterall, "Tis the season to be jolly" no ?  But deep inside, we all know the strangle effects a beautifully decorated store has over us. It makes us want to spend & be a part of that "joyful" equation, even if its for a fleeting moment no ? With technology "quietly" and "insidiously" interwoven itself into our lives, we don't need even to make a physical trip to our favourite store, nowadays. And we still could get what they want by letting the fingers do the walking. On top of it, we still get the full package of Christmas decorations, including faux snowfall as well - all on the shopping websites of course ! Are retailers profitable ? Are retailers profitable ?  Here's the skinny : While its about year end celebration, the subtext of every business is still the core question of "profitability". Honestly, which businessman opens its door for business for charity and fun & laughter ?  At the end of the day, its about the dollars and cents no ? How are US retailers faring ?  (Sampling theory) : US favourite retailer - Saks Fifth Avenue reported a stronger than Q3 2022 earnings both for store & online.  Black Friday as a major confidence booster that 2022 will end in with a "bang". US largest mall - Macy's  $Macy's(M)$  earnings per share have beaten Wall St expectations for the past 2 years.  No surprise that it would continue to do so. US #1 retailer - Walmart's Q3 2022  $Wal-Mart(WMT)$  total revenue was up +8.70% to $152.8 billion.  Expecting to end the year on a "high". On the whole, the retail scene looks "healthy" - don't you agree ?  I am sure the recently concluded Black Friday (25 Nov 2022) would've added to respective retailer's bottomline and a bit more.... What else is a "surprising find" from Quarterly earnings results is that revenue comes in almost equal between both "Brick & mortar" and "Online" business. Who would have thought that "Online" commerce would play such a pivotal role in modern day retail landscape ?  The full customers' shopping experience especially in "luxury" shopping used to be the "resistance tagline" for the House of Chanel; not to get involved in eCommerce.  However they succumb to social-norm and pressure in the end and I am certain with "no regrets" for the sales figures have spoken and completely "vindicated" going online. It literally means business is opened 24 x 7 - Luxury never sleeps - no ? Brick & Mortar  vs  Online Given the option to shop  in person online Without hesitation, it would have to be option #1 for me anytime. Why ? For once, I don't shop frequently.  When I do, I like the full experience. When its clothes I like to feel the fabric and observe how the overall construct fall when worn.  Something that cannot be experienced in front of the laptop. When it comes to leather wares (bags or shoes), there is no replacing trying on and feeling its fit and overall suitability.  If the "it" bag is it for you ? So, hands down its "brick and mortar" for me anytime.... LOL Online retailer - MyTheresa (MYTE) If there is absolute need to include a retail stock in one's portfolio, I might not be making a beeline for the Big Boys.  Instead, I would root for the underdog. The Online eCommerce stock that I would be looking at will be MyTheresa (Ticker : MYTE). Briefly : Its a luxury e-commerce platform for fashion consumers Presence in Germany, US, Europe and Internationally Offers the "best" in European designers' labels. Steep discount during the few "Sales" events; mostly up to 50% off retail price. During non-sales, retail price is cheaper than similar designer boutique in Singapore, can imagine during sales period. Offers no-questions asked return if the purchase is not to liking or has "defects". Sales purchase factored in "VAT tax" to facilitate parcel processing when it reaches Singapore Secure packaging with double sealed boxes.  What more could one ask for ? Full courier tracking from the time item is packed and ready for shipping. What else is compelling about MYTE ? MyTheresa (Ticker : MYTE) Quarter on quarter earnings are decent With covid still around, travel is still a fraction of its former glory As such, there is still a lot of penned up demand for luxury merchandises With that lies the potentials. So there you have it.  My take on US retail.  Do you feel the same ?  Are you a brick & mortar like me OR do you let your finger do the shopping ?  Share in the Comments section below ok.  Thanks. Please "Like" this post ok.  Thanks in-advance.  The rating is important to me.

      🛍️ My Black Friday went well, bought $Alphabet(GOOGL)$ and $SINGAPORE TECH ENGINEERING LTD(S63.SI)$ today when i looked at that decision, i realised that i had chosen stocks related to technology, perhaps in the past price was too high, couldn't afford it, so i still have more in my list, doing more research on $Micron Technology(MU)$ and $Meta Platforms, Inc.(META)$ almost buy MU last night, but i bought $JEPI(JEPI)$  first which give me monthly dividend.  To me MU worth to look now 👀 because it is PB 1.20, if Warren Buffet chosed TSM which has 70% business in US, i choose MU with 50% business in US. The downside ⚠️ very minimum dividend 🥹  💰MU low debt, assest is growing, PE ratio only 7 with PS ratio 1.95  Next earning report 21 Dec 2022 📝 Seems my Black Friday sale still continue as long as bear is here, invest wisely my friends 💕 @TigerStars  @MillionaireTiger

      My Black Friday Sale purchase just got cheaper now⁉️😱

      [USD] Bought 🍏 $Apple (AAPL)$ and 🚘 $Tesla (TSLA)$ before Thanksgiving because both the stocks' prices already bottomed out and were picking up. However, on Black Friday, the share prices of both the stocks went down further. So I adopted the strategy of Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA) and buy some more of both. Now it looks set that the prices of both my purchases ( Shares of 🍏Apple the mobile phone and Tesla the 🚘 electric vehicle (EV) ) just got even lower Post Black Friday. My 🍏 Apple has turned red 🆘and my 🚘 Tesla has gone roller-coaster downward 🎢. 🥵 I am trying to stay cool and not panic.🥶 Many shoppers looking for 🍏 Apple's latest high-end phones returned empty-handed from its stores on Black Friday as the technology company struggles with production snafus in China. 🍏 Apple says the new pandemic lockdowns in China have "temporarily impacted" production of iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models at the Foxconn factory in Zhengzhou, China. The new COViD Zero factory shutdowns in China would create "lower" shipments and "significantly reduced capacity " for its Max and Pro models for this crucial holiday shopping season. 🍏Apple said customers should expect longer wait times when ordering.  Wedbush analysts Dan Ives and John Katsingris said they expect to see the shutdowns negatively impacting "roughly" 3 percent of iPhone sales this quarter. Wedbush is maintaining a USD$200 price target for 🍏 Apple shares despite the news because "this is a supply issue related to China's Zero Covid policy but not demand driven." Research firm Trendforce based in Taipei, Taiwan has projected iPhone shipments for the fourth quarter to be lowered by 2. million to 3 million units. It said China's Covid policy could drive down iPhone shipments into the first quarter of 2023, worrying that winter surges of Covid will further impact production. 🍏 Apple could see worsening results in 2023. 🚘 The rout in Tesla shares is accelerating as a recall and China's return to Covid Zero curbs adds toinvestors' concern, with CEO Elon Musk's lack of focus for 🚘 Tesla.  🚘 Tesla's share price has dropped to USD$167.87, the lowest since November 2020. China's return to lockdowns has put 🚘 Tesla's production and sales at risk. 🚘 Tesla also initiated a recall of more than 300,000 cars due to faulty taillights. 🚘 Tesla's share price would drop further as its supply-chain snarls mount, raw-material costs soar and potential buyers feel the squeeze of stubborn inflation and rising interest rates.  "Weakening macro data in China is leading to concerns on 🚘 Tesla, who has already lowered price once to stimulate demand and has a heavy export output in the first half of fourth quarter," Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne wrote. He added that hedge funds seem to be shifting to a negative bias on 🚘 Tesla due to risk that there has been "a loss of focus" on Tesla since Musk acquired Twitter.  😅 Should I buy more 🍏 Apple and 🚘 Tesla when the market open for trade on Monday? Join me if you want to practice catching falling knifes! 🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪 [Spurting] [Spurting] [Spurting] [Spurting] [Spurting] [Spurting] [Spurting] [Spurting] [Spurting] [Spurting] [Spurting]  🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎  @TigerStars @MillionaireTiger @Daily_Discussion @Tiger_chat  (⭐️⭐️ 200Mil WkTreTop)

      My Black Friday Shopping List

      🌟🌟🌟Black Friday Sales are happening now and it is time to stock up on my favourite stocks 😍😍😍 My top picks for my US stocks Black Friday Shopping list are$Apple(AAPL)$  and Amazon.  I choose Apple as my top choice because it is a phenomenal company with a market capitalisation of USD 2.36 Trillion.  Apple has a wide moat with its brand and ecosystem. Of all the FAANG stocks Apple is the most resilient.  In its 3Q22 earnings report, revenue increased 2% year over year.  There is also supply constraints that limited sales as well as macroeconomic headwinds of high inflation, rising interest rates and strong US dollar. However Apple has the cash flow to withstand the current volatile market.  Apple generated nearly USD 108 billion in free cash flow.  This means that Apple can both pay a dividend and repurchase shares. In the most recent quarter, Apple returned USD 28 billion to shareholders through a combination of dividends and share repurchases. I love dividends and Apple is top pick for Tech stocks.  Amazon is my 2nd top pick because it is undervalued and oversold.  Amazon is not only the King of ECommerce, it is wonderful combination of many businesses including cloud computing, online advertising, digital streaming, Artificial Intelligence, supermarkets, heathcare and many more. Amazon's 3rd quarter sales growth was impressive with 15% increase year over year revenue growth to USD 127.1 billion.  However Amazon 's net income fell to USD 2.9 billion from USD 3.2 billion last year. The star performer is Amazon Web Service.  Its Q322 growth was 27%.  Amazon Web Service market share is 32% of the total cloud service market ahead of its competitors Google and Microsoft 's Azure.  There is currently a lot of fear on how the global economy is slowing down, high inflation, rising interest rates, strong US dollar that is adversely impacting Amazon' s share price.  But Amazon 's long term prospects are still bright with a booming AWS business, ECommerce growth. So the 2 AA stocks Apple and Amazon are my Top Picks for Black Friday Sales.   I am bullish on both of them to buy and hold with a long term horizon of at least 5 years to receive market beating returns. @MillionaireTiger  @TigerStars  @CaptainTiger  @Tiger_chat

      Should Meituan Q3 earning worth celebrating?

      $Meituan(03690)$ posted Q3 financial report after close on November 25th, it made profits from loss again, beat estimates, together with most Chinese big techs. The strong will to survive, made them improved operational efficiency, and also, the market's surprise.Shall Meituan keep profits? From Q3 performance, both main business and new business are in great growth, and the cost control also reflects the operating leverage. Revenue was 62.62 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 28%, slightly higher than the market expectation of 62.38 billion yuan; The net profit was 1.22 billion yuan, turning losses into profits year-on-year, which was better than the market expected loss of 987 million yuan; The adjusted EBITDA was 4.8 billion yuan, which was higher than the market expectation of 2.75 billion yuan. The number of paying users was 687 million, up 2.9% year-on-year, higher than the market expectation of 515 million. Meituan's business is divided into two parts, Local business and Initiative business. Among them, the local business includes delivery, In-Store and Hotel & Travel.The total order volume of food and beverage take-out and Meituan rapid delivery increased by 16.2% year-on-year, with an average daily order volume to 50 million , and reached the highest exceeding 60 million in early August. It is also a major driving force for the growth of single volume, which may reach more than 500 million orders. The transaction volume of convenience stores and supermarkets on the platform increased by 27.9% and 62% respectively, and the order volume of husband and wife stores increased by 125% year-on-year.Daily delivery orders have become a habit to Users.In-store orders needs to be focused, it is in high competition with some short video platforms, who are taking the market share. It is said that Douyin's in-store business GMV has reached 10 billion in October, Meituan's in-store business also remained growth. All kinds of recovery activities in summer brought further benefit.While short video platform's different from Meituan. Meituan‘s business is provided on the behavior of users' "shopping", But Douyin isonly "recommendation" And long-term user evaluation has become an important data advantage.For the new business, the revenue in this quarter reached 16.3 billion yuan, and the retail business naturally contributed. Although Meituan's business of selecting and buying food is not Meituan's main business, it is Meituan's further expanded retail business besides take-out. The market competition is relatively fierce, and the market share is still growing.At the same time, the loss of new business began to narrow, which also set the stage for future profits. The overall operational efficiency of Q3 Meituan is also the embodiment of "reducing costs and increasing efficiency".Although Q3's marketing expenses increased month-on-month, they decreased by 4 points year-on-year again, which was dwarfed by the 28% increase in revenueThis point is very obvious in this quarter's technology companies. The improvement of profit margin naturally further enhances its valuation basis.Will this be the last time that Meituan will turn losses into profits?

US largest mall - Macy's  $Macy's(M)$  earnings per share have beaten Wall St expectations for the past 2 years.  No surprise that it would continue to do so. US #1 retailer - Walmart's Q3 2022  $Wal-Mart(WMT)$  total revenue was up +8.70% to $152.8 billion.  Expecting to end the year on a "high". On the whole, the retail scene looks "healthy" - don't you agree ?  I am sure the recently concluded Black Friday (25 Nov 2022) would've added to respective retailer's bottomline and a bit more.... What else is a "surprising find" from Quarterly earnings results is that revenue comes in almost equal between both "Brick & mortar" and "Online" business. Who would have thought that "Online" commerce would play such a pivotal role in modern day retail landscape ?  The full customers' shopping experience especially in "luxury" shopping used to be the "resistance tagline" for the House of Chanel; not to get involved in eCommerce.  However they succumb to social-norm and pressure in the end and I am certain with "no regrets" for the sales figures have spoken and completely "vindicated" going online. It literally means business is opened 24 x 7 - Luxury never sleeps - no ? Brick & Mortar  vs  Online Given the option to shop  in person online Without hesitation, it would have to be option #1 for me anytime. Why ? For once, I don't shop frequently.  When I do, I like the full experience. When its clothes I like to feel the fabric and observe how the overall construct fall when worn.  Something that cannot be experienced in front of the laptop. When it comes to leather wares (bags or shoes), there is no replacing trying on and feeling its fit and overall suitability.  If the "it" bag is it for you ? So, hands down its "brick and mortar" for me anytime.... LOL Online retailer - MyTheresa (MYTE) If there is absolute need to include a retail stock in one's portfolio, I might not be making a beeline for the Big Boys.  Instead, I would root for the underdog. The Online eCommerce stock that I would be looking at will be MyTheresa (Ticker : MYTE). Briefly : Its a luxury e-commerce platform for fashion consumers Presence in Germany, US, Europe and Internationally Offers the "best" in European designers' labels. Steep discount during the few "Sales" events; mostly up to 50% off retail price. During non-sales, retail price is cheaper than similar designer boutique in Singapore, can imagine during sales period. Offers no-questions asked return if the purchase is not to liking or has "defects". Sales purchase factored in "VAT tax" to facilitate parcel processing when it reaches Singapore Secure packaging with double sealed boxes.  What more could one ask for ? Full courier tracking from the time item is packed and ready for shipping. What else is compelling about MYTE ? MyTheresa (Ticker : MYTE) Quarter on quarter earnings are decent With covid still around, travel is still a fraction of its former glory As such, there is still a lot of penned up demand for luxury merchandises With that lies the potentials. So there you have it.  My take on US retail.  Do you feel the same ?  Are you a brick & mortar like me OR do you let your finger do the shopping ?  Share in the Comments section below ok.  Thanks.

      How Bilibili Turn Profits?

      $Bilibili Inc.(BILI)$ posted Q3 earnings before Nov 29. With an unexpected surge before the earning, it's earning only make it more volatile.Obviously, the market has taken into account some expectations of this report, and market is betting no preference on any lossed.Let's see the Q3 earningActive users grow step by step, good sign.On Revenue, the single-quarter revenue was 5.79 billion yuan, up 11% year-on-year, returning to double digits again, and slightly exceeding the market expectation of 5.71 billion yuan.Among them, the revenue of value-added service business reached 2.21 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 16%, which was basically the same as the market expectation of 2.22 billion yuan; The advertising business revenue was 1.35 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 16%, slightly lower than the market expectation of 1.38 billion yuan;The game business revenue was 1.47 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 5.7%, and once again returned to positive growth, exceeding the market expectation of 1.41 billion yuan;E-commerce and other income was 757 million yuan, higher than the market expectation of 673 million yuan.In terms of profit, the gross profit margin of this quarter increased by 3.2 percentage points month-on-month to 18.2%, which also exceeded the market expectation of 17.4%. The restraint in expenses has also reduced the loss of consolidation to a great extent.The operating loss was 1.85 billion yuan, less than 1.88 billion yuan in the same period last year and narrower than 2.1 billion yuan in the previous quarter.The net loss was 1.7 billion yuan, down from 2.7 billion yuan in the same period last year.Some key points,First, Bilibili is also one of the companies increasing operating efficiency.The whole Internet circle began to reduce costs, increase efficiency and improve profit margins. Although Bilibili took effect a little later, it has been clearly reflected since this quarter. Previously, company executives hoped to focus on the expansion of traffic before 2025, which also scared away investors with insufficient risk appetite. Obviously, the current result is that Bilibili has really followed the big stream.From Q2 to Q3, the marketing cost, marketing expenses and management expenses have all dropped rapidly, and Bilibili is also more conservative in content revenue sharing. Although some full-time upmasters complain, the long-term pain is not as good as the short-term pain, and it is only a matter of time before the budget is contracted.Second, Bilibili made some bets on games. The first is games. Q3 has launched several new games at home and abroad, which promotes the revenue of game business to increase by 5.7% year-on-year. In the following Q4 and 2023, it will continue to release a number of self-developed new games with ACG theme. Bilibili game Otawa is related to the content of these secondary cultures, precisely because it has a large number of groups.In addition, brand games represented by Bilibili, such as League of Legends,It is also the key factor to create traffic for his value-added services (live broadcast), and it is also the key factor to provide greater traffic entrance for game advertisers.Due to the overall decline of the advertising industry this year, especially the shrinking of the optional consumer industry, games are also allowedThe company has become the main force of advertising growth.Third, the competition with short video platforms is still fierce.The year-on-year growth rate of advertising revenue dropped to 16%. Although it is still a positive growth, it is difficult to compare with the previous high growth. On the one hand, it is the influence of advertising environment, on the other hand, it is the competition of short video industry. Due to the lack of KOL live streaming and other channels,The advertising realization efficiency of medium and long videos is lower than that of short video platforms.However, the promotion of offline economic activities will be deeper in the implantation of medium and long videos, and the amount is not as good as that of short video platforms. Therefore, on the whole, short videos have an impact on the advertising business in Bilibili.In fact, Bilibili still has a trump card, that is,Pre-video advertisement.Just like $Netflix(NFLX)$ has turned to Ad, source of cashflow should be multichannel. If Bili could do lke YouTube, who helps $Alphabet(GOOG)$ generate a lot of money, bilibili will make a lot of extra money.It only needs an opportunityLet's wait and see.$BILIBILI-W(09626)$

      Cyber Mon; after Black Fri. Looking at UMC, SOFI / NU

      With the blink of an eye, Black Friday (25 Nov 2022) was over in a jiffy.  There is definitely some truth in the sayings "Time and Tide waits for no man !".  Agree ? Did you manage to "score" and load up on your favourite stocks ?  I did not.  Not because I did not wish to.  Rather I have been "confused" by some "teacher / guru / financial experts" on the internet.  What did they do ? Do not buy into a stock when its price is falling.  This is easily the worst mistake any investor can make ! Do not buy into a stock when its price is rising. This is especially true if its a punter's stock or more politically correct (nowadays) - a meme stock. Why in the first place did i make time to listen to them ?  I was surfing to see if there is anything new to learn when it comes to investing, apart from : Invest in value stocks (also known as Value Investing) Look at your shortlisted stock's technical chart for technical "signs" of bottom out, breakthrough, price manipulations Research on a shortlisted stocks's Quarterly earnings and Financial statements on Total Revenue, Net Income, Cash Flows, Liabilities etc.. Imagine learnings from internet where "guru's" teaching are conflicting in principle !  Wouldn't you get confused ? Are both approaches right or wrong ?  Honestly, I am unsure.  Believe the verdict is still out there.  Anyone interested to take a stab at this ?  I will lend my listening ears. Hee hee. Have I missed my chance to score on Black Friday ? Any regrets ?  Of course, Not ! This is because there is still Cyber Monday (28 Nov 2022) no ?  And Fantastic Tues, Fabulous Wednesday etc...  Get the drift ?  Whahahaha... Simply put - in investing everyday is a bargain  "Buy" when the price is right no ?  This is my "revelation" after mulling over the two conflicting investment concept.  It may not be enough for anyone else.  It is enough for me.  Hee hee. With that, I will be sticking to my guns and continues to focus on the followings.  Afterall, I have done my homework on them and their latest Q3 2022 earnings report looked mighty fine to me. $United Microelectronics(UMC)$  $Nu Holdings Ltd.(NU)$  $SoFi Technologies Inc.(SOFI)$  PS : My posts on above 3 stocks' Q3 2022 earnings can be found in my "library" of postings... Hee hee. UMC Q3 2022 earnings results . NU Q3 2022 earnings report . SoFi - Q3 2022 non-GAAP upwards revision NOTE : What I am looking at may not be your cup of tea.  You have to be diligent in homework. Always remember, when it comes to investing your hard earned salarly - no corners to cut, no short-cuts to take. Do not throw cautions to the wind and buy into what are the flavours of the month.  Investing doesn't work that way.

      Balck Friday is coming! The lipstick index has returned to people's horizons.What is the lipstick index?The lipstick index was proposed by the former president of Estée Lauder$Estee Lauder(EL)$ , who analyzed Estée Lauder's actual revenue figures, and found that lipstick sales went against the trend during the recession.Lipstick, as a cheap non-essential, can comfort consumers. In the economic downturn, people will still have a strong desire to spend.But during the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for makeups fell because there was little need to use, while lipstick sales were the hardest hit, and the lipstick index disappeared at one point.As the global economy slows and many countries relax restrictions on pandemic prevention, the lipstick index once again has a place in the economy.Extraordinary performance of the makeup sectorOf the 14 non-essential categories tracked by market research firm NPD Group, the makeup industry is the only non-essential retail category with sales growth so far this year. Lipstick sales rose 37% year-on-year in the year to October. NPD Group pointed out that among the high-end makeup products, Lipstick is the only category whose sales have increased compared with those before the pandemic.According to Jensen, makeup products are one of the few that respond to consumers' emotional needs, which makes them feel good.Can Black Friday boost the makeup/retail industry?L'Oreal$L'Oreal Co.(LRLCY)$ 's third-quarter sales were 9.575 billion euros, up 9.1% from a year earlier.Nicolas Hieronimus, chief executive of L'Oreal, pointed out in an earnings call in October that a high-end lipstick or mascara of 30 euros was an "affordable enjoyment".Coty Inc.$Coty(COTY)$ , the world's largest perfume company, released its earnings report for the first quarter of fiscal 2023, which ended September 30, showing that the global popular beauty category is growing at a moderate rate. Koty continued to outperform the market, and expand its global market share for 10 months in a row.Retailer Target$Target(TGT)$ pointed out that Beauty products sales rose about 15% in the third quarter from a year earlier, with ULTA Beauty Target's total sales tripling from a year earlier.Same-store sales of Bluemercury, a chain of cosmetics products featured by Macy's$Macy's(M)$ , rose 14% in the third quarter from a year earlier. Kohl's$Kohl's(KSS)$ , which works with Sephora, also outperformed other chain department stores.Do you think the retail sector will be lifted by Black Friday?Which company are you bullish most?Do you have plan to buy cosmetics on this Black Friday?Join our topic and win at least 50 tiger coins~

      Thought on Thanksgiving:The Right Attitude and Mindset of Trading

      The Right Mindsetthe right attitude and mental discipline doesn’t necessarily guarantee that u will be a profitable & successful trader but the wrong mindset almost guarantees certain failure. here is what I have adjusted in 12 yrs1. u have to be able to filter the information infront of u & focus on creating yr own system that fits yr own risk tolerance and return goals that are realistic. unrealistic goals only create pressure to the grind & u are bound to lose focus and stray to undesirable outcome2. u have to accept that price action can seem random at times so u have to trade a system that can filter out the volatility and false moves and trade the big picture and go with the path of least resistance3. u have to go into trading with a realistic expectation of what yr equity curve will look like. any trading systems and traders have losing streaks and drawdowns in equity as the market dynamics change from trending to range bound & from volatile to tight trading ranges.4. stop looking for other’s tips and trades and develop yr own system by putting hours and hours into the study of the system.u usually don’t know other’s stop losses, position size, and timeframe so it is difficult and meaningless follow someone else’s trades.5. u must accept the uncertainty in every single trades outcome and focus on the probability of the edge playing out for yr system over the long term. thinking long term is of paramount importance to keeping you motivated, and remaining in the game6. u must accept the risk of loss on every trade. u can't control the outcome, but u can always control yr absolute $ risk in every trade& be sure the potential reward is worth that risk of loss. try to enter the trade as close as possible to where u are wrong on yr trade7. u must balance the ability to let your winners run for large wins but also have an exit strategy to lock in profits while they are still there. simple moving averages can do amazing work for yr trading to tune out any potential emotion based decisions18. u have to stay flexible with every trade and be ready to exit if it is proven wrong no matter how strong yr opinion or how much u believe in yr own analysis, prediction, insider or conviction yr personal ego is the #1 enemy in trading.9. if u have a valid entry signal in yr trading system you must take it. u can’t afford to miss a big win but u can afford to take a small loss. a single big win of multiple Rs does magic to the long term equity curve10. always focus on yr positive trades, yr discipline, and the potential opportunities in the markets. u can only trade long term if u keep a positive attitude to manage yr stress levelsmore vegetables & fruits, plenty of water, daily exercise, sufficient sleep helps greatly.https://twitter.com/jeffsuntrading/status/1595826132112535554

      TSM May Rally With TSLA As Potential Client🤩😍

      ⭐️ TSLA is rumoured to join our favourite 🍎 to obtain chips from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd (TSM) for its next-generation Full Self-Driving (FSD) computer, Teslarati reported. ⭐️ TSLA could become 1 of TSM’s largest & most high-profile customers in 2023. ⭐️ TSLA’s will be TSM's 1st customer in the large-scale EV manufacturing sector. ⭐️ TSLA’s next-generation computer, which TSM will supply, would feature roughly 3 times the power of TSLA’s current FSD computer. ⚠️ Reports of the reported deal between TSLA & TSM made the rounds in local news outlets such as Taiwan Economic Daily & China’s IT House. TSM for its part, has not issued a comment about the matter. TSLA has not issued a statement about the matter either. 🤔 TSLA’s lineup of premium EVs is already among the most technologically-advanced cars on the road today. Despite this, TSLA may roll out a Hardware 4 computer in the near future. Details of TSLA’s Hardware 4 computer are scarce, though Musk previously confirmed that the new component would be initially rolled out in the Cybertruck. Considering that the Cybertruck is expected to start its manufacturing sometime in 2023, it’s probable for TSLA to secure a supplier for its next-gen FSD chips at this stage.  Even if TSLA isn’t TSM’s new client, TSM being the most advanced chip maker is poised to recover from its low stock price now. TSLA has rebounded from its bottom of $166.18 on 23/11 after Citigroup upgraded its rating from sell to neutral. On 25/11, TSLA & TSM rallied in pre-market but were faced with downward selling pressure as 🍎, other tech & chip stocks are down $Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing(TSM)$ $Semiconductor Bull 3X Shares(SOXL)$ $AMD(AMD)$ $NVIDIA Corp(NVDA)$  As usual-🤔💭 Consider POV & Actions of investors + 👩🏻‍💻👨🏻‍💻 Research + 🗑FOMO & Greed = Investing Wisely 🤓🤗 + Accumulating Wealth 💵💰 Source website: Teslarati @TigerStars @MillionaireTiger @CaptainTiger

      TGIF! Great Stocks On Sale 🔥 With the US stock market so heavily beaten down from its high, some of the best companies with strong fundamentals are indeed on a discount! My top pick will be none other than $Microsoft(MSFT)$. Its productivity tools are pretty much recession proof (most companies can’t just cancel their subscription) and it has a strong growth engine, the Azure cloud services which ranks second in the market with over 30% growth annually. With demand for mobility and AI, Azure is well poised to capture this market. Let’s not forget Microsoft’s dominance in the gaming sector with its Xbox. The gaming sector is expected to grow over 10% annually over the next 5-10 years.  Next, I would go for $NVIDIA Corp(NVDA)$. A leader in GPUs with continuous innovation to bring the best chips supporting data centres, AI/Machine Learning, digital twins etc. Its chips are used widely in many sectors, from automobiles to healthcare and gaming as well as data centres. It is well-positioned to capture the growth of most industries.  Lastly, it will be $Amazon.com(AMZN)$ . Some may argue that the P/E ratio is way off the charts, however one must be cognisant that Amazon is investing heavily (in its current and new business segments) that will further cement Amazon as a rock-solid conglomerate in theyears to come. Amazon's e-commerce business is highly reputable and will bounce back once the current headwinds are over. Its advertising business has been growing at an exponential pace (just behind Google and Facebook) and its cloud services (AWS) remains the no. 1 inits industry with continuous year-on-year growth of over 20%.  While the above companies appear to be on an attractive discount, it is imperative to note that the headwinds are not entirely over. Interest rates are likely to continue increasing, albeit at a slower pace. However, if we choose fundamentally strong companies with good prospects, we will be able to tide through this volatility.  Happy holidays and may the market be in yourfavour!  PS: To my fellow Tiger friends that I have tagged you again, I just realised it must be a post instead of comment for coins.

      Look out for the Great December Sale! We are almost at the end of November. How fast time flies! The December holidays loom ahead and along with it comes the traditional sales and discounts. In fact, that has already started on Nov 25. The markets have rumbled on nicely rallying nicely off the October lows. Are they offering good discounts? Depends on your perspective and time frames (yada yada). Depending on thesector and compared to a year ago or even a few months back, many stocks are still very much discounted off their highs. However in view of macroeconomics and technical charts, the markets do look rather stretched in my opinion. I mean we have gone off on a good rally since the October lows. So lets be realistic here. Markets do not go up in a straight line. And we are rallying right into very strong resistance in the form of the 200 daily averages and the long term downtrend line. Those are not resistances you take out easily. And considering we are in what looks like a topping off leadingdiagonal wave 1 pattern, it will take an awesome super duper catalyst to induce an extension of the wave beyond that super duper resistance. So I do have my concerns. Hence the cautious stance here. However, I am still adopting a bullish stance looking forward. I am expecting a wave 2 pull back (bullish count) which I see as an awesomeopportunity to load up to ride the wave 3 rally which I believe will be powerful enough to take out the heavy resistance ahead. However still, I always look at price actions at important levels so decisions will change accordingly hence my almost daily commentaries. As of now I am cautious and believe better buying opportunities are ahead. And I am reserving buying firepower for stocks such as 1. $NVIDIA Corp(NVDA)$  2. $AMD(AMD)$  3. $Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing(TSM)$  I am rather reserved on $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$  and $Apple(AAPL)$  although they do present fantastic opportunities being well run well managed companies under good leadership. Thanks for reading!

      I think this year’s Black Friday 2022 sale is happening once in a lifetime with huge discount of up to 70% off for most of the stocks especially for tech stocks. 2022 was a very tough year for tech stocks. Most of the stocks were greatly affected by the aggressive rate hikes, geopolitical issues, economic slow down, high inflation and demand pressures. Amongst the following 10 stocks with very attractive discount, I have picked Apple with the least discount in my shopping cart. 1)TSLA - Tesla Inc 54% off 2)AAPL - Apple  17% off 3)NIO - NIO Inc 68% off 4)NVDA - NVIDIA Corp 45% off 5)AMZN - Amazon.com 45% off 6)BABA - Alibaba 35% off 7)CRAB - 59% off 8)PLTR - Palantir Technologies Inc 60% off 9)META - Meta Platform, Inc 67% off 10)MSFT - Microsoft 26% off This is because as of November 2022, Apple has a market cap of $2.36 Trillion. This makes Apple the world's most valuable company by market cap. It has an exceptionally loyal customer base. Within the US, Apple’s iPhone accounts for more than half of all market share. Apple also accounts for the lion's share of Berkshire Hathaway's investment portfolio. As of this past weekend, Apple made up 40% of Berkshire's invested assets. Apple’s share price might continue to decline in the short term due to the market weakness. I still think Apple will continue to be the safest choice under down market. The net income and cash flow of Apple have been increasing since the first quarter of 2022. Therefore, I believe Apple share price will definitely soar 🚀🚀 to the moon 🌙 when the economy has recovered. @Pucca @xiaos come join

      "Black Friday" in the United States will debut on Friday (25th). Retailers expect to attract crowds back as the impact of the epidemic fades. However, preliminary indications are that the crowds outside physical stores in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and other places are still sparse, reflecting inflationary pressures and the effects of bad weather.  Consumers surveyed said they are buying strategically this year, rather than making impulsive or splurge purchases. There are also many consumers who choose to participate in the Black Friday discounts on the Internet because it is more convenient. According to statistics from Adobe Analytics, the amount of online shopping on Thanksgiving this year increased by nearly 3%, with mobile shopping as the main force. Retailers are offering deep discounts this year, both online and at brick-and-mortar stores, which could hurt their fourth-quarter profits.  Statistics show that the average online discount this year is 29%, 6% more than last year. That helped drive sales up 3% to $7.1 billion. But it's not all good news if people are out on Black Friday weekend, as consumers respond to the week's promotions and stores but stop spending shortly thereafter, reinforcing already existing concerns among retailers that shoppers only Shop when you need to, and only when there is a discount. $SQQQ(SQQQ)$ $XPeng Inc.(XPEV)$  @Tiger_chat @TigerStars @MillionaireTiger

      🛍️ My Black Friday went well, bought $Alphabet(GOOGL)$ and $SINGAPORE TECH ENGINEERING LTD(S63.SI)$ today when i looked at that decision, i realised that i had chosen stocks related to technology, perhaps in the past price was too high, couldn't afford it, so i still have more in my list, doing more research on $Micron Technology(MU)$ and $Meta Platforms, Inc.(META)$ almost buy MU last night, but i bought $JEPI(JEPI)$  first which give me monthly dividend.  To me MU worth to look now 👀 because it is PB 1.20, if Warren Buffet chosed TSM which has 70% business in US, i choose MU with 50% business in US. The downside ⚠️ very minimum dividend 🥹  💰MU low debt, assest is growing, PE ratio only 7 with PS ratio 1.95  Next earning report 21 Dec 2022 📝 Seems my Black Friday sale still continue as long as bear is here, invest wisely my friends 💕 @TigerStars  @MillionaireTiger

      Apple seeing 'strong' iPhone demand into Black Friday, but supply worries persist Apple $Apple(AAPL)$ has continued to see strong demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max units and with the all-important Black Friday shopping weekend right around the corner, Wedbush Securities noted that the only thing holding back the tech giant will be supply. "The zero Covid China shutdowns in Foxconn have been a major gut punch to Apple this quarter and we believe have taken roughly 5% of iPhone 14 units out of the supply chain and thus putting Cupertino in a 'major shortage' heading into the next month," analyst Dan Ives wrote in a note to clients. Ives added that Apple (AAPL) is likely to sell 8M iPhones this weekend, down from 10M last year, "with the gap being mostly supply driven." Delving deeper, Ives noted that despite the economic climate, there is "strong" iPhone upgrade activity from AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) and in store activity has been "solid" for Apple (AAPL) in most stores as well as its online channels. Nonetheless, inventory is an issue, with iPhone 14 storage options and colors seen as "limited" and only likely to get worse. "We believe by early December it will be increasingly difficult to get your hands on an iPhone 14 Pro with many delivery times likely pushed through to early January," Ives added.
