No Mania for You? I Have Your Play Right Here...

I always find it amusing when some people try to pigeonhole this website and our general strategy as this, that, or the other thing. In reality, we have demonstrated over a period of years that we are willing and able to adjust to the market's ever-changing landscape while still staying focused on sound risk management principles. Yes, we typically focus on technical breakout strategies.

But inside the long-term, VIP arm of Market Chess Subscription Services we also bought TWTR with a $16 handle and are still long the name as an investment in the face of disbelief from many that TWTR had fallen so far, so fast from its 2013 post-IPO highs.

It may not be as sexy as any pot stock, streaming play, or even a "FANG" or Cathie Wood play. But IP is precisely the type of name which could have more upside than any of those hot tamale growth sectors over the coming quarters, especially once we get beyond this early-spring bullish seasonality.
