Concentrated profits in long positions (countering the 'buy to die, short for the port' principle)

Posted by: DTXbro on Mar 05, 09:00

The brothers of Delta Tau Chi have long subscribed to the view that most of an HSX stock portfolio should consist of short positions (probably dating back to the Apt Pupil Massacre).

Holding a long position with respect to above-$50 IPOs (although generally solely for a trading day or so) can produce handy, predictable profits; many movies generate solid returns between release and retirement; playing reset rocketeer with long positions can be a time-consuming and inconvenient (for East Coasters, consequent to West Coast unearned privilege) profit center; and holding concept-stage penny stocks is sensible.

In general, however, 'short 'em all, and let the portfolio page sort the profits' customarily is a reliable path to profit.

Delta House consequently was somewhat surprised to observe that of H$411 million in unrealized gains in its current portfolio of movie stocks, roughly 30 percent derived from 10 stocks (more than 10 percent from BPNTH), and eight of those 10 stocks are held long.

Our portfolio is still a bit strange consequent to a long health-related absence from the HSX market, but we nonetheless were surprised to learn that our most profitable stock holdings are long positions.  Of our top 10 gainers, TBATM and STAR9 are the only current shorts.
