Bought a bunch of VGRO and VUN last week but still sitting on a bunch of cash. Should I average in every month or two even if it goes up? I guess so?

Another weekly round of ZDV, ZWH, ZWE, and ZEF. Was hoping to buy some on sale, but only ZEF was down.

Time in the market will typically outperform averaging in... However, emotionally-wise, a lot of people feel better about averaging in as they might be more afraid of losses than missing potential gains.

To add to this I would say pick the strategy that minimizes the most future regret.

Future regret is a hard thing to minimizes as it depends on what's the definition of future.

Some positive news!

Anyone else bought in?
These studies or as they are called "Phase 0" are not really considered positive news imo. Companies can win dozen of these studies and if they are lucky will end up in 1-2 projects materializing years from now.

Positive news will be one or more of:
1- WorldView 4 insurance policy get paid in full
2- better than expected (after lost satellite write off) q4 earnings
3- Good news about SSL
4- Div cut with clear plan on how they are planning to pay off debt

I am not frustrated at the bad news as much as the management and IR for keeping their mouths shut

I agree with you, it's not "amazing" news... What you listed above is what the company needs to recover from the recent drops.

Isn't the issue for MAXR their now declining cashflow and heavy debt?
Though they may get an insurance payout, the replacement satellite will take years.


Separately, bought more BNS today. (Because Covered Call is likely to get assigned)

Their new constellation is scheduled to launch in 2021 and nothing will be built and launched before that

Any potential 1-2x bagger blue chip (or close enough) over a three-year holding period?
