Time to get Bubba Gump rich everyone!
Let’s find the next “fruit company” like Lt Dan did!
The market opened up and keep on going into the afternoon session.
Trader Z logged in and said that every darn chart he looks at is “in the box”, particularly the high quality, big cap tech stocks.
With NetFlix coming in with stunningly strong earnings and the stock jumping up 65 points in the opening hours, this provided an underpinning for what he believes will be a massive move up in the tech stocks.
He thinks the whole market is poised to run up and make new highs.
I happen to agree, looking at the charts.
Now buying AAPL and MSFT are not exciting, and they aren’t going to give you 80% returns in a week which we seem to have been able to find for us all lately, but at the same time, they are quality, they are going to move up, and they are a play I suppose you can make.
The list of names that we like is so long that it would take up too much space.
A dose of them can be seen below in Commentary.
With Biden in the WH now and going along with our Dems in Charge 100% theme, China stocks are back in favor and will remain so we suspect.
JKS, BABA, PDD, NIO to name a few.
We see them moving up strongly and making noises that they’ll be back in play again.
So one area that we had to avoid and be cautious about is now back in the “OK to trade” box.
DOW up +200 and NASDAQ up +250 @2:30 ET
After a brief pause earlier in the afternoon, they’re powering up again and the indexes are holding.
There are a number of stocks underperforming though, so the bifurcation of the market is again occurring with the positive moves going to the big caps and the stocks that have been winning for us in the past two weeks taking a break.
AG, QTRX, EXPI, FUTU, REGI, JKS, DDOG, NOW, TTD, YALA, DKNG, PTON, AAPL, AMZN, ADBE, NVDA, CRWD all working up strongly.
OK! Trading done for the Day!
With the confidence of Trader Z making a massive call to the upside in this market, we decided in the afternoon to go all in and we not only bought some new stocks, we added pretty big to some of our existing positions, particularly after they had traded off today, had bottomed, and looked like they were setting up to recover either today or tomorrow.
Our performance dropped just 2% today as many of the stocks outside of the index stocks were hit…essentially everything that was working for the last 2 weeks pulled back while the big caps in both the DOW and NASDAQ took the indexes up big today.
The Infinite Power Glove Key Chain!
You are all wondering, what is this weird keychain they sent me?
Who are these guys?
Are they for real?
Are they freaks?
Yes – we are for real.
Yes we are freaks!
Money Making Carnivore Stock Trading Freaks!
Should have a bunch of Infinite Power Glove key chains arriving to you all last week, this weekend, and this week.
The Trader Z Infinite Power Glove!
“Love the Glove”
Keep it on your desk in front of your screen like we all do.
It helps make us invincible market traders.
INVINCIBLE I TELL YOU!!!
Oh ya, and Donk wants me to remind you, hang onto that key chain.
There will be something coming up that you might want it for.
Yesterday I forgot to talk about TLRY and its trading on the day.
First – its up 71% from our initial buy, so it is the number #1 unrealized gainer in the portfolio, but we added to it and that has brought the overall position down to being up – on a weighted basis – like 41%.
So yesterday, it opened down and made some people nervous.
It was just some profit taking and they were trying to shake some people out, and they were successful.
But then, all day, the stock was climbing out of the hole that it got into in the first 30 minutes.
This steady climb, this steady buying action, called accumulation, was encouraging.
Now sometimes this ends up being a disappointment when the stock gives out in the last hour and trades down, kind of like4 it gets exhausted and collapses from the climb all day.
But not TLRY yesterday.
No – it finished strong and actually finished in the green for the day, which is very “constructive” as the chartists and traders say.
Constructive is another way of saying “it’s good”.
Tilray is all about pot and it is getting a lot of good press.
Don’t forget the maniacal pot stock guys out there.
There are millions of them out there and they love to trade pot stocks.
There are whole sites dedicated to this.
I’ve been watching the pot stock traders for years now and I know how they can move a stock.
Trader Z says, “Pot has legs”.
I guess so, right?
I also screwed up on the size of our positions and ignored the size of our TWTR short.
It was actually our second largest position behind the new top position of LXRX.
We covered the short today.
The new administration isn’t going to hurt the guys that helped them get elected.
That’s the bottom line.
The Text Messages Don’t Lie
You guys figured out who we are yet?
What does Carnivore do?
Ya, we find explosive stock positions for us all to invest in and trade.
Ya we do that.
But what do we really do?
We are Money Ball.
We’re Billy Beane and the Oakland A’s.
What they did changed the way things were done in Baseball forever.
We’re going to change Wall Street.
We’re showing the Street’s “best and brightest” that they aren’t that at all.
We’re showing them that Carnivores can BEAT them at the money-making game.
We’re showing people that what they have been told is impossible is possible and show them that we do it every trading hour, every trading day, every week, every month, every year.
We can make 20% returns in a month.
50%, 100%, 200%, 400% annual returns.
We are Money Ball.
We put up the stocks that “get on base”.
Every month, we hit some home runs, too.
Our stocks “jump the Torus” and we win big.
So far in January, I’ve lost count, but we’ve had many already in 12 trading days.
TLRY, PLUG, LAC, FLGT all come to mind immediately and I’m sure I’m missing a few.
4 wicked huge gainers in 12 days of trading.
So when they told Billy Beane that his Money Ball idea wouldn’t work, couldn’t work, that he was stupid, that it made no sense, he said to them…
Baseball’s way of looking at the world is Medieval.
And it was.
And he went on to win 20 games in a row and nobody had done that in 103 years.
So they told him it was a fluke and luck.
Then the Boston Red Sox applied Money Ball to their team and they won the World Series.
Not a fluke.
And so it is with us.
Just a little Carnivore Trading Company
With a crazy genius trader or two and some computer stuff called Vector Nostradamus and BITE.
People on Wall Street take advantage of your lack of experience and try to make you think that 5% or 7% a year is what you should expect.
That mediocrity is what you should shoot for and accept.
We hate that!
It’s not OK.
Nobody says, “When I grow up, I want to be a mediocre doctor or a mediocre ballet dancer”!
We want to grow up to be extraordinary.
We want to excel and be recognized for excellence in our lives.
We’re up around 20% in 12 trading days.
At that pace we will be up around 50% for the month.
And that continues and we’re up 600% for the year.
Now maybe we have a bad month or two or the market goes south and we don’t adjust and deal with that fast enough. So take 300 points off that number…
That is still +300% for the year.
About 20 TIMES what the Wall Street guys are doing in their fancy hedge funds and mutual funds.
And that is how we do it.
Nobody believes it.
Everyone says “That can’t be!
Because they have been told not to believe it by the so called best and brightest on Wall Street?
You’re experiencing it firsthand.
Up days and down days.
You see it all – we hide nothing.
The Texts Don’t Lie.
And since we didn’t do it last Friday, this week we get to check in on Cramer TWICE!
Once today and again on Friday.
Today, we were checking to see where Cramer was, because he sure wasn’t in his office checking charts or running any analysis.
So we sent out our scouts and sure enough they found Cramer.
He was showing off how he could really get his BBQ going…
Well, here’s what happened:
Using Trailing Stops
For all New Carnivores!
When you put on a trade at your broker, whether its TD Ameritrade, Robin Hood, or just about anyone else, you can also put in a “trailing stop loss” order at the same time, or even later if you like on an existing position.
Most people have no idea when to sell.
Most people agonize over when to sell something.
Using trailing stops ELIMINATES this.
We give you a price for the stop, and also the percentage since most systems make using a percentage easier for you to put into the system.
So once you’ve bought the stock, the next step is to enter the SELL ORDER – but make the sell order a Trailing Stop Loss, Good Until Cancelled, OK?
If you don’t know how to do it, find out how to enter it in your system.
Ask your broker.
It’s really quite freeing if you think about it because now, all you have to do is concentrate on buying the right stocks.
And we are helping you with that part BIG TIME, right?!
Make your selling automatic.
Take one of the biggest decision you have to make in the trading world off your shoulders.
“There is no such thing as your mind there is only thoughts parading through and telling you that you are conscious and awake.”

We don’t recommend options trades to our Carnivore Family…but…we are in the business of finding explosive stock situations.
If you are an options trader, you can “key” off of what we’re buying in the stock market and make your own determination on what, if any, options to buy on those underlying stocks.
Many options traders seemed to have had success in using Carnivore’s stock picks in this way.
Long Term Investors:
Carnivore only trades 99% in super high quality growth companies and high quality stocks.
Many long term investors use Carnivore to discover companies to invest in that we believe are the future Googles, Apple’s, Microsoft’s of the world.
One comment we routinely get is “I never even heard of that stock before!” and they’re surprised to find out how big they are and how fast they are growing.
Our systems and research and methods and contacts alert us to these stocks that many people have never heard of but that are quality stocks, not penny stocks.
With the quality of the stocks we trade in, many of which you will never have heard of, you should never feel the urge to buy a crappy penny stock again.
The list of great stocks we’ve introduced to Carnivores over the last year is awesome.
In that 2020 list, there are great growth companies that are growing insanely fast and worthy of long-term investment consideration.

*Note on How We Calculate Recommendation Performance
We simply take the starting value of the account and the current value of the account for the calendar year and we take the gain or loss in the value and divide it by the start value.
This is our simple return. We think this keeps it real and keeps it easy to understand. We also keep track of the number of winning trades versus the number of losing trades. In this case, every purchase and every sale is counted as a trade. We may only trade 20 stocks in a month, but we may have made several purchases or several sales of each position as we scale into and out of a position. This would mean that we might have 60 or 100 actual trades but in only 20 names. Our winners versus losers is reported for EVERY TRADE. This means that if we buy 5 blocks of a winning trade and sell them all at once, that will count as 5 trades. This is fair since if, for some reason, the 5 purchases we made turned into a loss, then all 5 trades would count towards the losers for the month in an equal manner. In this way, we are motivated to buy and buy and buy the winners and sell the losers quickly. We are motivated to cut our losers quickly and it can prevent us from adding to losing positions.
We also keep track of the average amount we gain when we win and the average amount we lose when we lose. Similar to the above, each trade in this area is counted.
**We report our positions in this area as the overall position return at the time. We may have made multiple purchases and some might be up 20% and some might be up only 10% for example. If they are the same purchase amounts, this would show an overall position gain of +15% – the average of the two purchases. This is how we report this figure.
***The Carnivore Portfolio is a hypothetical weighted portfolio. It uses leverage from time to time in large amounts and weightings can change rapidly and the positions may change rapidly as well. We rarely day trade. Our picks are the same as those we use with all Carnivores in the text alerts. We don’t buy or sell anything differently than what you see in the Instant Text Alerts. Our weightings in each recommendation may change rapidly and they can be very, very concentrated. At times we may also hold a large cash position and little or no stocks or other securities at all. In general, we are buying the stocks we’re recommending. When we say we’re buying a stock, we are buying it. When we say we are selling a stock, we are selling it. We do not recommend you buy a stock and then we sell it. That is the kind of underhanded garbage they may do on other sites, but not here. We also never take any compensation from anyone for recommending a stock. The only money we make is from the monthly fees from our subscribers. Therefore, our loyalty is clearly to our subscribers always. To make sure that we are not accused of “front running” our subscribers, we tell you FIRST what we’re buying or selling, allowing our subscribers to get their orders in first.
