Not surprising. Those ads aren't effective. I don't know about others, but I have never clicked on a FB ad. I use ad-block because of how many websites use auto-play ads or ads with animations which are distracting, but even before I used it, I never clicked on FB ads. Google ads were at least often relevant.

About 10 days ago, I had to raise some cash for taxes-- I sold Nestle (NSRGY) and put about 1/4 of the amount into SMLP, with the somewhat arbitrary goal of keeping the dividend income from that account the same. Nestle is up since then, but so far the SMLP position is up the same amount.
We'll see if fashions change again on this one...
From 5.80, to 6.60, now back down to under 6 again, all within a day. Wow.
Today I added more to FB under 110,
and opened positions in MSFT (at $51) and UAL (at $51)
I know you're just joking (or are you? ) but I'm in it for the long term so if there's a drop now it's really meaningless in the long term as I bought in on a big dip.
Bought into a few new ones recently... so I'm back in airlines, AAL today bought a bit, and UAL a few days ago.
Interest rates are low. Hard to find yield at other places. Oil was really leading the market down, but seems to have found some stability.
I own COG so was annoyed to see NY deny the constitution pipeline its permit. Hits me both in higher electrical costs and is basically going to take, at a a minimum, a year of profitability away from them.
Thesis haven't changed at all. Cell phone replacement cycle lengthen from 2 years to 3+ years from subsidies going away.
Largan's Q1 results reaffirmed the thesis, down 22% Y/Y, and Q2 guidance down 20%+ as well.
But AAPL is (was) a hard short; crowd favorite, central bank darling. Hard to fight Swiss National Bank!
TWTR... well I sold off some stock today before the close expecting a drop. I'm buying up lots at 15.5 and assume it might open even lower tomorrow. Not that I think it's a good company, but I'm in and want to get out and have to lower cost plus it seems to regularly wiggle between 15-18 give or take and I'll make money in between.
Also, MU, what a day! up what 10% or something? Plenty of upside historically but this much of a bump in a single day and I'm happy to trim plenty off and wait for it to come back down. Currently and unfortunately one of my biggest holdings and biggest losers. Well this one and TWTR. Both of which I want to just get out of ASAP.
