My family and some friends are playing a Stock Market Fantasy game in 2021. It is a good way for us to stay connected and have some fun this next year (plus hopefully learn a thing or two). I am planning to document some of the good and bad stocks we pick each month.
Here are some stocks in various players portfolios that are off to a great start in January 2021 (all information is as of 5:45am on January 7th):
Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. (CURLF) - This stock had been climbing since the markets opened in 2021 and had a nice jump up on January 6th. Currently is up 19.88% in early January. I am calling this my “Pot Pays” stock. This stock is currently held in two portfolios in the game.
SunPower Corporation (SPWR) - A big jump up on January 6th and is currently at 15.95% up in early January.
Enphase Energy, Inc. (ENPH) - Also had a big jump up on January 6th and is currently at 15.91% up in early January.
I have seen others write that the increases in CURLF, SPWR and ENPH all have been attributed to the recent elections and expectations of what is to come in the future (hence energy and cannabis stocks are up).
We will see if these stocks can hold their value or even increase between now and the end of the month. The before hours activity on SPWR and ENPH are encouraging today (but I have been fooled by those numbers in the past).
It is a long month and I will put out updates from stocks (good and bad) from various players portfolios. It is just my way of tracking this data.
