Still mystified at the dragnet appeal of Ocado at these levels, there’s obviously huge work for little profit at huge relentless expense. On every level it’s crazy?

Hi , thought I'd add to your post on what is one of the most shorted UK stocks

 

In the year to 3 Dec 2017, Ocado reported a pre-tax loss. Costs developing IT systems and automating warehouses weighed on profits (-£0.5m versus £12.2m profit the previous year)

 

But they have announced a string of partnerships; French supermarket Group Casino, Sobeys of Canada + another unnamed

 

Shareholders will hope these will allow Ocado to slowly start to turn a profit... Ocado have said they expect earnings to rise significantly in 2019

 

However since the tweet below went (semi) viral in January the share price is up nearly 50%!

For those who are still as sceptical about the business model as they were at the turn of the year, this in theory makes the company an even more attractive short, right?

Interestingly, the percentage of its shares on loan to short sellers has fallen to 7.9% from 13.5% back in January

 

Do we think there has been some profit taking by the sceptics or have the winds changed and sentiment about the long-term earnings potential improved?

Its one of the hardest stocks to call. Some people felt as a grocer it was over valued. However, it is starting to be regarded as a tech business. and perhaps rightly so, after seeing this video:

 

"Ocado's new warehouse has thousands of robots zooming around a grid system to pack groceries. The thousands of robots can process 65,000 orders every week. They communicate on a 4G network to avoid bumping into each other. Is this the future of retail?"

    • MON Protocol aims to be a leading developer and publisher of blockchain-native IPs and games. Their vision extends beyond traditional gaming ecosystems, as they seek to bring games and gaming characters onto the blockchain. MON is an ERC-20 fungible token that powers and governs fractionalized IP ecosystems.   30% of the total supply is allocated for community claims, emphasizing community-driven initiatives. While 29% of the total token supply is dedicated to fostering growth and sustainability within both the Pixelmon and MON Protocol communities. All one billion tokens will be fully unlocked within 48 months of the token generation event (TGE), which is anticipated to take place in Q1 2024. This gradual release underscores MON Protocol's commitment to transparency and ecosystem development. Will MON Protocol's unique approach to IP governance, combined with Bitget's strategic listing, positions it as a frontrunner in fostering community engagement and sustainable ecosystem growth?
    • Another reason I prefer DAX to other markets is that I am able to use my own profitable method on it, which I call "Reverse Trades." In it's simplest form it is a good Entry Point, which is used repeatedly for trades, for as many times as the market price returns to this Entry Point.  This is illustrated in the chart below for 22nd May. The best Reverse Trades occur when the market beats the Entry Price and then re-crosses the Entry Price. If this is not clear, feel free to write to me and I will explain in greater detail.
    • The gaming industry is one of the industries that has effectively leveraged the efficiency of blockchain technology to drive growth. A fiercely competitive sector, it takes unique innovative Ideas to stand out. When analysing the chances of infant GameFi projects to reach the heights, one project seems to have staked a claim to be soon held in the same breath as the leading projects– Param Labs. Param Labs, an AAA game and blockchain development studio is dedicated to creating top-tier blockchain-integrated games with player-owned digital assets, and is developing a modular gaming ecosystem, comprised of games and infrastructure.  Already a trending project thanks to the widespread participation of its airdrop, Param has gone on to strike partnership with Animoca Brands, a frontrunner for advancing digital property rights within gaming and the open metaverse; highlighting its wildfire-esque spread. While the buzzing community anticipate their airdrop reward, the news that it will launch on Bitget on 29th May amongst other exciting listings has spiked the anticipation. If you can relate, how excited are you with the imminent launch and what Param Labs brings to the gaming industry generally?
