Week 22 - Chicago Quantum wrap-up: Flat: with transitions
We are going to discuss the markets and our firm. If you were looking for Week 21's video, we took a vacation break. It was good to disengage and step back. 1. We took profits in our largest holding and have now purchased five new stocks (but with less money invested). 2. Every time I look at the market...it looks flat. This is either a top, or a consolidation. 3. We are working to build a Turkish portfolio optimization system in collaboration with an academic, with the goal of either investing in Turkish equities...or publishing an academic paper. Not sure yet. Will give an update. 4. No progress on solvers, code, or mechanicals 'under the hood' of our platform. 5. Make successful outreach with a new tranche of clients. If successful, will require significant hiring and investment. If not, this is a tremendous learning experience. 6. May discuss interest rates, inflation, and a host of other financial metrics like employment numbers. May also skip all that. Will discuss logistical challenges in the global economy that will inhibit growth. 7. The CQNS model stopped picking energy stocks and we now see more medical and healthcare stocks. Will discuss. 8. We now look for volume and price spikes. We found one stock that had both $STSA, and we will discuss that. 9. We sold $SMLP and a few weeks ago sold $NGL (both at a profit). Will discuss that, and how I still think they are good investments (not considering macro-trends). 10. Worried that energy is over-heating (pun intended, sorry). 11. Our Top 10, or Top 20 CQNS picks in our 'long' or 'efficient' run are doing well in this market. We do notice that when the $SPY or $QQQ falls, and the stocks were picked off that index, the stocks fall harder. So, they climb and fall faster than the index, individually. That is why we provide a full portfolio, equally weighted, so you get the benefit of the over performance and diversify precisely to avoid the under-performance. Zig and Zag 12. Going to see the Chicago White Sox play tonight. 13. We have started the process of becoming certified investment advisors with the State of Illinois. When that completes...then we can serve more clients! All good, hope you enjoy the video. June 4, 2021 We are quantum computing consultants who work with clients across industries.
