when you're going to a recession not sure going to space matters anymore. It's overrated even more so. $spce

Space age is here

Virgin Galactic in space:

Blue Origin in space:

We're officially in a space age now. And these are the two go to options.

Currently the ticket cost for both is around 250k each. But it seems the user experience of a Virgin Galactic flight is better (in my opinion) but maybe that's because Richard Branson is there. Jeff seems to be more interested about himself than space.

Richard also had a video talking about why is space important for us, he talked about agriculture and other things and he's right. With going to space becoming so easy we can imagine a lot of applications, and not just space tourism, to pop up in the next 5-10 years. That means there is a vast opportunity somewhere maybe in the supply chains, materials or things that we do not know yet.

In retrospect Tuesday -5% is a good place to enter $spce. They have secured some government contracts and they have more planned flights ahead, so valuation of this company might be slightly easier onwards from here.

This is exciting. Congrats on both teams you guys did well. And welcome back Jeff.

Virgin Galactic shares tumble on plans to sell up to $500M in stock

The Saturday launch seem like it would go to the moon. But they only go 0g for a few seconds. Also at the end of the day it is still an airplane pretending to be a rocket. And that seems really lame to me.

I wonder if this is going to be a good investment in a couple years regardless of the price action today. I don't have the answer to that but it seems Starlink is way more interesting. And today they also tell you they need cash to do whatever they want to do, even if they can convince the millionaires to justify spending lots of money going to 0g for a few seconds, which I still think is absurd.

In my opinion blue origin or Starlink is a maybe but this one is a no.

This is really like testing your luck. It might be the last time we see him.

200m quick profits from SPCE deal for Chamath

This is a good example about how to make 200m from a SPAC deal in a short period of time. Once you give people the impression that you can use a SPAC to market any underperforming companies just like that then the world is your oyster. $SPCE

Virgin Galactic Drops as Holders File to Sell 113 Million Shares

They're going to sell additional 113m shares. And that would be about 50% of their outstanding shares, which is a lot. As much as I like the idea of space tourism, this news, in additional to the test flight delay news last week, might cause a lot of downward pressure to the stock price.

Space tourism would be a thing in the future, that's very likely to happen. But I think for this one it might make more sense to sit on the sidelines and watch. $spce

Market turmoil early today

There's a minor crash this morning. A lot of the tech stock dropped 5-10% in a short period of time but ended up only down a little. Tesla $TSLA was at a point down 6% and narrows the losses to 2% at close. $SPCE was up 10% in early trading session and quickly after 11:00am it plummeted to -10%, but it ended up closing only -0.19%. $CRWD and $DDOG and many great growth names are also down 6-10% before closing down only 2-3%. So if you panic during early session then you would not be doing well.

There are no news whatsoever to justify the crash. The only explanation is we're in a bull market for too long and market is very tense now. Anything happening in the market would cause some profit taking to happen.

The lesson is when you're in a bull market you shouldn't panic. If you're selling in early session then you would have a hard time buying them back. But since we're in the 10th year of the bull market anyone should have an exit plan just in case actual crash happens. But is it going to happen before the election? We'll see.

SPCE breakout pays big

$SPCE $18 calls up 400% from idea a few weeks ago. Nice downtrend breakout followed by the horizontal $20 continuation breakout. Bulls chased the bears away from the spaceship. Remember to pay yourself along the way if you joined in.

Interesting company in the space tourism business. With Richard Branson behind the project it's probably the next best thing in space after Space X or Blue Origin. $SPCE
