Restaurants often operate on ~30% or less profit margins, so by using delivery apps they are often breaking even or losing money, essentially working for free. Most people think they are helping the restaurant but they could actually be hurting it.
Bought my first bitcoins at $255 in November 2013. Have held and continued to dollar cost average since then. In the spring, my wife and l will be moving into a swanky Manhattan co-operative thanks to Bitcoin.
My entire life is changed thanks to that fateful decision in the fall of 2013. I just wanted to celebrate this moment and to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all the hodlers, coders, memers, and believers in Bitcoin! You all rock!!! Couldn't have done it without you!
For those wondering, no, I'm still not selling any yet at this price.
Edit: Cramer, I want a shout-out next week.
(With my actual username) I, along with my fellow autists here at WSB want to be recognized again, and this time you can have proof as of where GMEs ridiculous profit ER came from.
So I know some of you are feeling cucked and have been expecting a short squeeze every single day for the last X amount of days...
But here is my DD, and how you can play a role and profit with or without touching the stock.
You’re confused so let me speak your language
GameStop offers PowerUp rewards membership.
There is a free tier, and $15 yearly membership tier. Buy the $15 membership right now...you’ve lost more money than that in less than 15 seconds today...you’ve spent more money on that for lube and protection around your nearest Wendy’s.
#If every one of you with positions in GME actually did this, their profit numbers would look ridiculous at the next ER.
If you spread this info to other people, many of whom are not aware, they may utilize it and ER would look even better.
So what does this $15 get you?
A $5 coupon every month that you can use on any item, including gift cards, and online gaming stores. Any of them...all of them. (PSN/ Steam / XLive, N eShop)
This $5 coupon expires every calendar month. You must use it before the end of the month. If you purchase a gift card, obviously that amount in GC would not expire.
After 3 months you break even, after the 4th month you have a higher percentage gain than your RH account.
So you spend $15 for membership, and get $60 in the course of 12 months.
Your net profit is $45. If every month you pick up a $10 gaming card (PSN/XLive/ N eShop), you only end up paying $5 each month.
At the end of 12 months, you spent an actual $75, but ended up getting $120 worth of stuff. It’s actually more like $130 because they give you a welcome coupon along with the 1st month’s coupon, plus a birthday coupon as well.
Use it for yourself, or if you’re not a gamer, save them up and gift it to someone. Or give it to your wife’s boyfriend so he can use it while his dick is chillin during the refractory period.
Remember the coupon expires each month, but if you purchase a GC e... keep reading on reddit ➡
Lets say Sneed owns a Banana Stand that makes a profit of $1 per day.
Chuck wants to buy a 50% share in Sneeds Banana Stand. Chuck asks himself, what is a reasonable price to pay for half of this banana stand?
If Chuck paid $500 for half of the Banana Stand:
Chuck is willing to take on a little more risk than this. Hell, this Banana Stand really shows a lot of promise! And Sneed, well, Sneed is like a genius! He had a great Banana Stand over on the other side of town that sold tons of bananas. What if Chuck paid ... $25,000 ?
Chuck doesn't expect to hold his investment for 137 years. He believes that what's really important is not the money coming into the Banana Stand, but rather how other people like Chuck feel about the Banana Stand. See chuck is a growth investor - not a value investor.
Chuck feels really good about the future of this Banana Stand. It's only making $1 a day right now, but man Sneed is going to take this Stand places. Chuck decides to go all in and pay $289,080 for a 50% share in the Banana Stand.

I released OptionStrat, a new options visualization website back in November. I wanted to make another post to share some big updates and show it off to anyone who hasn't seen it before.
Some cool things that set OptionStrat apart are: It shows market events (ex-dividend, earnings, and split dates), liquidity bars to show the relative volume of each strike, and the ability to save trades and see what they have earned so far. Everything also works in real-time, so just change the strikes, expiration, or IV to see the chart instantly update. This makes it very easy to discover how various strategies respond to different conditions! There are over 50 pre-made strategies as well.
Here is a video if the new app:
As always, open to feedback and suggestions. Click here to check it out.
Also, thank you mods for letting me post this again.
$1.44 billion in profit every. single. day. of. every. single. year. Not revenue, but actual profit. That’s nearly $530 billion a year. Literally more than half a trillion dollars. And some struggling homeless dude or a single mom who has lost work through no fault of her own gets caught and punished for stealing a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk? Is that really unethical on their parts? Get real.
EDIT: I have a correction to make. I was mistaken when I stated that Walmart’s daily $1.44 billion figure was actual profit. That figure is in fact Walmart’s daily revenue, so not all of the $1.44 billion is profit. My mistake. I didn’t realize the error, and I do apologize.
Yesterday went to the dealer and bought a 2018 Kia Sedona EX with trading profits from this year. It's a Christmas surprise present for my wife. I'm not telling anyone, but it's hard to keep the secret because I'm so excited, so I figured I'd tell you degenerates.
This was my first profitable year since I started trading/investing in 2017. I was down 35k at one point, but managed to make it back and then some. DM me if you want to ask more about it.
And yes I wish I could say I bought a Tesla or something. But we got three kids and still driving a 2014 sedan, and we've been making do with it, but damn I think this minivan is going to make things soooo much easier! (Also, I'm cheap...which is something I've noticed in profitable traders as well...even if they make bank, they are still conservative with money and look for deals lol)
I don't know if prices will continue going up (probably they will) but having passed the 2017/2018 crash I strongly recommend to take some profits even if just a little. You will regret if you don't and prices tumble. Now downvote me if you want to. I thought I owned this to the community.
“With the Covid-19 Pandemic and heightened racial injustices in 2020, many of us have been looking for answers. Lauren & I found ourselves searching for ways to help our community at a time when they needed it most. Pledging the remainder of our 2020 NBA salary to small black owned businesses, nonprofits and initiatives is how we felt we could make a lasting impact. According to @google, in 2020, worldwide searches for “support small business” doubled compared to the previous year. It’s encouraging to know that in a time when we could all use a helping hand, we are still searching for ways to help one another. Know that you are not alone in your search for answers.

There is absolutely NO justifiable reason to spend $20 on a single gun/character skin on top of a game that already costs $60. It's honestly insulting that they do this shit.
2020 was filled with up’s, downs, and just about everything in between. I lost overall 50K while I watched many others on the sideline turn profit after profit, sometimes upwards in the millions.
2021 will be an interesting year to say the least. The economy is at a turn of events and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.
If you had the chance in 2021 with a 50K starting base, where would you put it? What’s your stance?
First post on this thread, so please forgive any formatting issues or anything.
The USA has a reputation internationally for fake, plastic cheese, watery beer, cheap, sugary bread, etc. I can’t deny that, as a general rule. I’m a poor 25 year old in the US, and my finances mean that I’m intimately familiar with the cheapest thing in every category of our grocery trip. For example, I think Bud Light, Coors, and Miller are awful beers. They’re also the only beers I can afford.
The thing is, we definitely have good quality food and drink! I’ve had FAR better beers in the US. I love craft beers, and have found beers here that are comparable to the ones I’ve found in England or Japan or Austria, which friends from other countries don’t believe at all. Right now though, I don’t buy those beers, because I’m currently unemployed with no way of getting unemployment, no stimulus checks on the way and tens of thousands of dollars in student loans.
In other countries I’ve lived, the cheapest beer is absolutely fine. The cheapest cheese is still made out of cheese. Just saying.
Most other countries of similar economic structure 1. Are (at least marginally) more kind to their citizens with things like education costs, universal healthcare, etc. and 2. Don’t have corporations capitalizing on the poverty unchecked, making literally the cheapest legal products that can resemble cheese or beer because 3. The general pervasive culture accepts that people deserve better.
Does the US have shitty food just because we’re the only ones who try this hard to capitalize off of poor people living badly?
EDIT: just to address two quick points, I agree that a) some American food is AMAZING. We have great cultural food when it applies, great quality food when you know what to buy, etc. I also agree that b) a lot of American food (even the vast majority you’re likely to find in a lot of areas) is AWFUL quality, with crazy amounts of corn syrup, sugar, fried everything, etc. I am neither claiming that American food (or beer) is all good nor all bad. I’m making the point that our bad food is usually both worse and more ubiquitous, because people have to have a lot of money, buy very carefully, etc to overcome the fact that food is about profit more than about safety. People get used to it, learn to prepare it better, etc, even creating a cuisine around it. But the original ingredients are still just as shitty, mostly because of the economic divide in access to materials. Just... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve heard people always say that when a company does well on their earnings, they become a more valuable company so their stock price will go up.
What’s in it for me if I don’t directly get paid by them and I am solely hoping for other investors to buy stocks too? Aren’t I really just relying on other people to buy too? What if no one wants to buy it even if “they become more valuable of a company due to strong earnings?”
I know there are dividends involved but That is besides the point.
I haven't told any tales for a while. This takes place after I decided to quit a cybersecurity job that I thought untenable.
I had left my most recent gig and decided that I needed to take a road trip to clear my head. I packed my saddlebags, made appropriate arrangements and headed west. I had originally planned to fly to a conference, but now I could leave early.
Two days later, I was experiencing the space that is Iowa. Highways in Iowa are something of a sensory deprivation tank for me. There's the boredom of being unable to sleep on a red-eye flight or staring at a hotel room ceiling not knowing what city or time it is. Then there's a ruler-straight Interstate for hours.
On a motorcycle, there's no radio or playlist to distract me from myself. My mind had been wandering since the Illinois border. I was going between self doubt and wondering how much longer I could ride before I stripped naked and carried a decapitated 7-eyed goat head into a Kum & Go.
An image formed of the store clerk ringing up a customer. She'd turn, look at me and say:
I took the next highway rest stop and took a break to read a book and check my mail. The email is mostly noise, but there's an email from a recruiter I like asking me to get someone through a vendor risk assessment.
I've done these in the past. It's a day of dumb questions about your firewall's update schedule and occasionally I'll see an Eldritch technical horror in the corner and varied levels of indifference about it. I should be able to distract an auditor if they hear otherworldly screaming and odd lights behind a closed door. I used to be an assessor, so I know how the game is played.
I call him up.
Recruiter:"Good to hear from you! I've got a client in need called DynaPro. They just found out that they're being assessed in two days"
me:"I'd love to help you, but I'm on a road trip. I don't think I could get there by then"
Recruiter:"Are you close to an airport? Just fly to Denver from there. They'll pay expenses"
me, (looking at the map on the wall):"Denver? I can be there in two days as long as they'll pay mileage."
I call the contact at the vendor and tell her that I'll be there at 8AM in two days. They're a little shocked, but the're good with the timing. I realize that I'm getting over on corporate America.
I'm going to bill the mileage. I like riding motorcycles, but being paid to ride is sweet.
Normally with these... keep reading on reddit ➡
