The S&P 500 index is up 18.6% in the last 6 months. No insider trading required, just buy a simple index fund or ETF.

By the way, 4% interest on $3,000 would yield $59.41 in 6 months.
I made a bit over 40% on Rocket Mortgage in 2 days, just from reading the news.

I have a handful of Rocket shares, Arcimoto, AMC, Acer Therapeutics, NNDM.
All are in constant motion. I sell a bit when they rise, buy back a bit when they fall, making 10-15% on every buy-sell combo. While most of them are now below my average buying price, these pumping profits have resulted in a net profit for each of them.

The exception is Vale. I bought them for their large stake in nickel, but they are selling their nickel mines? The stock hardly moves at all, but trends downward. A modest loss there.
It is all small peas compared to my TSLA, which is still nowhere enough to buy me a Tesla, but not that small that it could not happen somewhere in the future. Looking at TSLA my revenue is almost 1.000% in 2 years. No regrets there, except for not getting in bigger.

Reading the news does not always point out the way to invest.
My creed is 'never pretend you are smarter than the market' so my buy and sell strategy is quite defensive. If a stock rises 30% I sell 30%. and vice versa. That leaves little room for outside influences like the news.

It was obvious to me that NKLA had no substance, and when the Hindenburg report revealed it in undeniable terms I expected NKLA to be decimated or fold completely. It dipped substantially, then veered back somewhat and maintains a substantial market cap. They have nothing; no batteries, no hydrogen filling stations, no production lines, not even real prototypes of anything. Still the bubble won't burst.
The stock is quite volatile; my scheme of buying low and selling high would have yeilded quite some profit. But I refuse to trade on thin air, and there's no thinner air than virtual hydrogen.

I didn't know Vale had nickel mines, but the costs of the remediation measures after the Brumadinho and Mariana incidents sure had an impact on the cost of the stakes.

How do they make a 2.5L diesel turbo so weak? I could make an engine out of Playdough that puts out more power.

My 1996 Subaru Legacy 2.2L engine put out a paltry 137 HP.

My 0.6L motorcycle puts out 109 HP.

RPM and torque. One is made for high RPM power while the other is made for low RPM torque.

Your F4i puts out 109 hp @ 12,000 RPM and 45 lb-ft @ 10,000 RPM
An 80's 8V Isuzu 2.5L TD puts out 90 hp @ 4200 RPM and 126 lb-ft & 2,000 RPM

My imaginary bet is short for the 31st, not that it's my desire.

That has severely impacted the value of the stock, as such it it quite cheap for a company of its size and potential. I expected a high risk, high volatility stock; should work well with my strategy.

The risk is still there but the volatility is lacking, so it might not have been that smart after all. But it could change any moment, it could have a Rocket week.

As a matter of comparison regarding power, and how it could eventually be a reasonable idea to sell some sort of "power packs" for EV conversions.
