Now, the second you’ve all been ready for … nicely, considered one of you anyway. Right here’s at this time’s featured Nice Stuff Reader Suggestions query:
“I was just a waitress in a hotel bar; that much is true. But even then, I knew I’d find a better place with or without you…”
So, there was this little pharma firm that started engaged on a drug to regrow inside ear hairs — and never the type you clip, thoughts you, however the ones you wish to preserve — the type you kill if you blast out your eardrums working in music venues for years on finish.
And sure, the ringing 24/7 tinnitus would additionally go away with this miracle drug as nicely. You guessed it: I purchased 1,000 shares and proceeded to look at it fall “down, down, down in a ring of fire…”
Till I wakened at 10 a.m., casually checked my TD account, and lo and behold, I used to be up over 5 grand. My $895 funding in EARS market value was over 5 grand. I used to be frantic. Do I promote it? A bit, loads?!!
At that exact second, my different half had a Zoom name, and our 112-pound silver lab began zooming across the loft barking (sufficient to trigger extra listening to loss) as a result of his favourite UPS man who feeds him large quantities of treats had arrived.
When all was mentioned and finished, i.e. the canine was full, and the higher half felt like he was being heard and his Zoom name accomplished, EARS’ 15 minutes of fame had handed. Shares at $6.30 excessive have been quickly descending to the $3’s. I made a decision to research to see what was happening (my imaginative and prescient being higher than my listening to).
Then I study Auris Medical shares are buying and selling decrease after the corporate priced an $eight million providing at $four per share, and Auris Medical Holding failed to satisfy Nasdaq continued itemizing necessities.
I’m at a loss, actually. Stock within the $2’s. What to do? I imply, I’m nonetheless holding out on my NKLA, however I promise to listen to what it’s a must to say this time!
— Donna (the canine & his greatest good friend name me Scout:)
Oh Donna … oh Donna …
I’ve a reader. Donna is her identify. Since her stocks fell, she’s by no means been the identical.
I do know you opened with Human League (a lot appreciated), however I couldn’t cross up the Ritchie Valens reference. I guess you get that loads. Anyway…
I don’t assume you’re utterly screwed on Auris Medical (Nasdaq: EARS).
Nonetheless, in case you purchased in throughout that December 1 rally, you’ll want plenty of persistence to recoup your losses. If you happen to purchased earlier than December 1, then you need to nonetheless be sitting on a achieve, proper?
Sure, the corporate bought new stock to safe funding. Corporations try this on a regular basis, particularly biotechs. The implications will be delisting, if the stock is diluted sufficient to not meet that exchange’s standards.
That is regular for small-cap firms this tiny. Auris Medical’s market cap is barely $24.54 million! Individuals win greater than that within the lottery. Loopy.
Nonetheless, Auris seems to be on to one thing massive. If that Part Three trial for Keyzilen (AM-101) for acute tinnitus reveals promising outcomes, EARS is gonna pop. Sadly, that trial has gone on since final yr, and I can’t discover any information on when Auris expects to conclude it or launch findings.
So, as Axl Rose as soon as crooned … just a bit persistence, yeaah.
I gained’t bang a drum for Auris. I gained’t inform you to maintain holding your EARS … or to promote it. It’s not me. It’s the SEC. So, that’s a choice you’ll need to make by yourself based mostly in your danger tolerance.
I will inform you that I used to work for a small-cap biotech, monetary e-newsletter again within the day, and I do know firsthand simply how risky these stocks will be. A lot so that you just may as nicely commerce choices. (Don’t commerce choices with out assist, Donna.)
That mentioned, the truth that you continue to maintain Nikola (Nasdaq: NKLA) provides me issues that you just’re not following the 2 key guidelines to buying and selling:
- Know Your Target Purpose: Earlier than you commerce. Earlier than you even take into consideration hitting that purchase button in your TD account, you have to set a goal achieve for the commerce. Is it 25%? 50%? 100%? Analysis the funding, decide and follow it. Don’t get grasping. Belief your analysis.
- Know Your Loss Restrict: Earlier than you commerce, resolve how a lot you’re prepared to lose. Nobody likes to consider this, however losses occur. Put together for this by setting a cease loss from the get-go. Then, in case you see positive aspects, set a trailing cease loss to protect your positive aspects. Make these cease losses cheap so that you just don’t get shaken out of the commerce early, however nonetheless … set one!
I hope that helps, Donna. Thanks for writing in, and good luck with EARS and NKLA!

Lowcountry Excessive Occasions
Hey Joe, whaddaya know? Your be aware on Prolonged Keep America’s first rate monetary image is one which I may also affirm.
A minimum of in our space (close to Hilton Head & Savannah), the native Prolonged Keep America has a LOT of development employees staying there — together with the Rattling Yankees who’re fleeing the Nice White North (each the snow and the pandemic restrictions) … and for whom the development employees are constructing mucho new properties.
It’s undoubtedly a housing increase market right here within the Lowcountry of SC!
— David G.
You imply to inform me that Ted Nugent, Tommy Shaw and Co. have been lurking ‘round town, and you didn’t invite Nice Stuff? C’mon, David.
Thanks for tuning in to our breakdown of Prolonged Keep America. You’re not the one one who wrote in with an analogous tackle the long-term hotelier both. Although, earlier than you exit and scoop up STAY, simply bear in mind the rationale we highlighted Prolonged Keep to start with: the corporate’s relative resilience.
Relative resilience is nice … however doesn’t essentially equate to positive aspects — particularly when journey stock buyers are busy trying on the new shininess with the Airbnb IPO. STAY may preserve your portfolio grounded … but it surely most likely gained’t take you excessive sufficient.
So, the place you going now? If you happen to’re searching for different stocks which can be barely adjoining to the housing explosion, you may as nicely search for an already-rallying enterprise like Sherry right here mentions…

First-time author, so be form to me.
DocuSign: I agree this can be a pattern that’s right here to remain.

Dipped in, Chipped out
I’ve XLNX. Ought to I’ve bought it at $151? Is there any motive to carry this?
Thanks for the query, RFY2025! (If that is your actual identify.) Is it worth holding XLNX?
Properly … we don’t know if you bought in or what your earnings seem like. Both method, Xilinx isn’t going wherever — it was purchased out by Superior Micro Gadgets (Nasdaq: AMD“>AMDAMD“>).
This goes down considered one of two methods:
If AMD’s cope with Xilinx falls by or is blocked, the stock would fall. Clearly, you shoulda coulda bought already. In any other case, the deal will finalize, and also you’ll get 1.7234 shares of AMD for each XLNX share.
The query is then: Do you wish to cash out now and head to new pastures? Or maintain on to your commerce for AMD shares? Nice Stuff Picks really helpful AMD a whereas again, and it’s been on a tear that reveals no indicators of stopping … so I do know what I’d do, however I’m clearly biased.
