    Nathan Michaud, Founder Of Investors Underground, Joins 'Pennies Going in Raw' To Talk Twitter Traders, Short Selling And More

    Alongside the historic rise of traders entering the market is an equally historic increase of "social" trading. In addition to sites like r/WallStreetBets and Discord, many traders have turned to the financial side of Twitter, colloquially known as "FinTwit," for investment ideas. What Happened: Nathan Michaud, founder of Investors Underground, joined Pennies Going In Raw hosts Hugh Henne and Dan Knight to discuss the influence of Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) on the market. Why It Matters: The trio noted to listeners that many of the bigger influencers on Twitter can influence the price of a stock. There is nothing illegal or wrong with simply stating that one likes a stock or sharing research. As Michaud explains, that line is crossed if the influencer is taking money to promote the stock. “If you’re getting compensated for stocks you should be disclosing it and you shouldn’t be trading them,” Michaud said. In his very early days of trading, Michaud gained first-hand experience dealing with the SEC regarding compliance issues. While Michaud was in college, he began helping companies improve their websites. From there, he put information about the companies on his stock ideas website as well. “Where I went wrong was I was trading them as well,” Michaud said. Many traders, including Michaud, have expressed their disapproval of a large Twitter account tweeting out a stock pick, and then selling that stock as soon as it shoots up — basically a Twitter-fueled pump and dump. “I think it comes down to intent. So I have mad respect for people that buy and actually hold. ... If you’re tweeting just to exit right into that, I don't think that’s the best thing to do,” Michaud said. Diamond Hands: Michaud says it is difficult for investors to pass up easy gains. Specifically, Michaud went on to describe how impressed he was that Mr. Zack Morris, held his AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc (NYSE: AMC) trade for so long, refusing to take early gains. “He crushed it, I gave him a lot of credit. It’s very hard to not take gains. In order to get where he got with AMC, he had to not take X, not take 2x, not take 5x... that’s hard to do. Heavy kudos to him,” Michaud said. Current Market Conditions: Henne, Knight and Michaud also discussed how abnormal the current market climate is for newer investors. “I don't think that people get how great it is that are just starting out — this is not normal,” Michaud said. “It’s not always like this.” Michaud went on to compare the current market climate to that of the dot-com bubble of the late 90s. “Clearly there’s some sort of a bubble. You can either complain about it or do your part to inflate it. I’m doing the second,” Dan said. Michaud went on to explain that days and days of a stock running up could come crashing down in a much shorter time frame. “I’m very good at waiting and waiting, and letting it roll over. You could have that two, three week run up and that’s great but that can unravel in one hour. And so that’s why I really like shorting... and it happens to be something I’m very good at.” See more from BenzingaClick here for options trades from BenzingaHIVE Blockchain Technologies: Powering The Future Of Blockchain Computing TechnologiesU.S. Global Investors: Innovating Funds To Provide Unique Opportunity To Investors Via Blockchain, Gold, Airlines And More© 2021 Benzinga does not provide investment advice.

  • Cathie Wood's Ark Invest Added Shares Of Palantir, Twitter, And Sold Apple, Facebook On Friday

    Cathie Wood's Ark Invest Added Shares Of Palantir, Twitter, And Sold Apple, Facebook On Friday

    Cathie Wood made some more moves in tech for her Ark Invest portfolio on Friday. Wood, founder and CEO of ARK Investment Management, is a big name in the investment world — her company's portfolios have been bringing in returns of more than 100%. See Also: Cathie Wood Talks Innovators And Disruptors. What Happened: On Friday, during a volatile day of trading that saw the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NASDAQ: SPY) break below the $380 mark in after-hours trading, Ark Invest was bullish and bearish on certain tech names. Ark Invest dipped once again into Palantir Technologies Inc (NYSE: PLTR), with the fund adding 3,365,400 shares to its portfolio, according to data on Benzinga Pro. Palantir makes big data analytics software used by the United States government, among other customers. In 2008, Palantir released Gotham, a data analytics platform for the U.S. government’s intelligence and defense sectors. Shares of Palantir jumped nearly 3% to $24.55 in Friday’s after-hours session following Ark’s posting of the big buy. See Also: How To Buy Palantir Stock Other Ark Moves: Ark also added 497,050 shares of social media giant Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) on Friday. Twitter shares were trading higher following the company's Thursday analyst day event, in which it shared a bullish three-year forecast. Multiple analysts on Friday raised their price targets on the stock. Additionally, the stock may be reacting to a new paid Super Follow feature. Shares of Twitter ended main trading hours on Friday up roughly 3% at $77.06 per share, and then rose to 77.25 in the after-hours session. Meanwhile, Ark went in the opposite direction for the likes of Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Facebook, Inc. Common Stock (NASDAQ: FB), with the fund selling 551,131 and 71,281 shares, respectively. Shares of several technology companies were trading lower this week along with the overall market as higher bond yields put pressure on growth stocks and other equities. By close of trading Friday, Apple was trading slightly higher by 0.22% to $121.26 a share and Facebook higher by 1.15% at $257.62 a share.
