Hi guys I have been doing some research on how to capitalise on the reopening of the US economy. I already own some recovery stocks which have been working and I think this play still has some juice left. Below is an a excert of a note for the company DAVE & BUSTERS ENTERTAINMENT ticker PLAY by Andrew Strelzik of BMO

Key takeaways

''Recovery progressing and demand is there. Comp improvement through FY1Q, while aided by stimulus, is indicative of consumer willingness/readiness to re-engage with the brand as COVID-related restrictions are lifted and vaccines are more widely disseminated. Top quartile stores that are indexing 90%+ pre-pandemic volumes and are concentrated in less restricted regions with higher consumer mobility offer further evidence of strong demand as the environment further normalizes.

Several near-term drivers to sustain building top-line momentum. In addition
to the normalizing environment, near-term levers include 1) New York/California re- opening/re-ramping; 2) summer marketing campaign highlighting revamped food/bev platform among other inititiatives; 3) greater focus on marketing through digital/social platforms broadly; and 4) six new games including several big-name titles (Minecraft, Top Gun). PLAY should also benefit from likely reduced competitive headwinds as competitors slow unit growth and focus on core business recovery.''

Personally, looking at the balance sheet and analyst's future estimates, both the earnings and revenue estimates have been upgraded.  These are the things I like to see before I get involved in a company. 


Last price as of close 01-04-2-21.  $45.32   ====> VS   1D 1.55%.     VS 1W 5.55%.  VS  1M 8.04%   VS 3M 57.1%    VS 6M 198%

Right now, looks like momentum is slowing down in the short term which could mean a buying opportunity. I have deployed 1/4 of my max position ( only about £300) will look to add more upon weakness or go full max if as it starts to work with a time horizon of 6 months.  I added a volatility adjusted rescaled range to the price chart. based on the daily close , it looks like the top of the price range is about $57and the price is sitting comfortably near the bottom of the range. Hopefully, I get a meaningful correction and can get involved at a much better price. See chart below. Right now the trading signal looks bearish in the short term pithing a bullish trend therefore overall looks bullish.

    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
