AVZ you absolute dog. Extended til 31st December
Day ended green and PF is green overall again, lovely.
Congratulations mate, why can't my pf do that.
TIL a sunflowers botanical name is Helianthus annuus.
Vincent Van Gogh loved sunflowers so much, he created a famous series of paintings, simply called 'sunflowers'.

I've seen it before, it's quite charmingly sweet, though. It just loves sunflowers. Me too!
I am laying on my back looking at a Van Gough right now
Or a German wank, which I think was the joke I got just a little too late.
Proper name is Helianthus annuus bro
Ah yes, I think I remember someone saying that 🤔
"**Hell's Anus**" for short. 👍
Stick a Sunflower in it and call it done.
Cheaper than bleaching and far more cheerful looking.
😂 That's some pro-tier fengshui right there.

Green week, cheers and eat a dick permabears 🍺
Just checked the folio, was not prepared for MAY to hit +5.63% - especially today of all days (+5.97% yesterday)
17% in a week
Ave price is $0.135, so need MAY to gain 80% to breakeven. SMH lol
Are you me haha
i bought in at ~15, 11 and 9 fuck me
Should buy some more to bring it down, MAY will be 20c again soon though so no stress
This is my first year of trading. I made the mistake of investing 100% of capital. And currently, all my tickers are in the red except for WHC (so I can't really sell anything).
AVL down 63%, what a dog.
Edit: lol at the cunt downvoting this comment 🤷🏼♂️
So, knowing what you know now, how much capital would you invest?
I did the same, and then I learnt the hard way, particularly if you go down the avenue of averaging down, that you need a good chunk of cash to do so. At least, if you want to do it fast.
It’s difficult to answer because it will depend on many factors like the economic cycle (boom or downturn) and also the specific situation that’s going on in the world (domestically and/or globally). For example, currently we’re in a global energy crisis, a war, and super high global inflation - which was worsened by covid, the blocked suez canal, and at least the last decade of high money printing by central banks.
Going into this I was a green investor, renewable and sustainable energy. But with the current situation ive invested in fossil fuels.
Coal, oil and gas.
If I started with $500,000 and given the factors mentioned, i’d invest:
- $200,00 on those fossil fuels (WHC and Woodside).
- About $100,000 on BHP (I use them as a savings account).
That should leave $200,000 to attack oversold quality stocks with once the recessionary pressures are over. Edit: but mostly this money will go into the speccies that im already in and long on already which is NMT (batt recycling); RNU (graphite); AVL (vanadium); PLS & GT1 (lith); WHC (coal). I sold PLS and WDS for profit the past few months.
The other boomer stock that I keep an eye out on Macquarie Bank. They are -28% YTD.
Ah fair enough, if you’re not going to be in and out within a few days have to have the conviction to hold through the downs
Yeh thats why i never do short term trades (unless the fundamentals change).
The stress is too much. Id rather do my research and be happy to go long.
I made a fair bit trading the daily movers on volume but was stressful if you missed the trade cause you had to hold with not much conviction
0.03% Red. Sky falling.
Holy crap, 2.5+ mill shares traded on close on BOE, going from -1.5% to +4.3% for the day. That's almost 2/3s of the entire day's volume. Similarly with BMN 500k shares traded for 50% of the day's volume.
Possibly associated with end of month/quarter performance...
Similar with AGE
Good riddance Septembear
Ich werde trinken
I'm green on MAY?
What an insult comrade.
Wow, that's a strong green from MAY
You not been listening to my preaching ?
I am not called “No Duff” for no reason
I'll be honest, when I read your username I just think beer.
Beer and gains, hand in hand
Green finish for the week. Pizza and ribs for dinner.
shoutout to the permabears.
Edit: permabear cucks dont like this comment. 🥰😘
Just a silly question, how long does it take for DRP shares to show up in your broker (self wealth in my case). Computershare account says I have been paid and elected drp but no sign of the extra units yet.
next trading day if it's an individual holding, same day if it's an ETF
Some companies do their DRP on market so it takes a week or so to come through. Which company are you waiting on? Your dividend would have been paid to account as computer share says (it doesn't show any additional balance until the shares are allocated)
Bhp, and now FMG I was loading up as they dipped
Fmg the one share I actually wanted to fall haha. They should have a share allocation date in their DRP communications.
Ahhh I see, bhp website does say 6 October for DRP allocation
Usually the day they are paid. Worst case overnight.
Looks like the resources all coming back in this last minutes, thats nice I guess.
Suddenly green. This last 10 minutes is wild.
I like throwing away money so I keep averaging down on LPD
Up almost 2% 😁 GFM!!
Well the week might not have been green but the RIO divvies came in and joining PEN they are the only ones in my portfolio going up. See you all in 2 weeks.
Ban bet... Green week or 2 weeks in the bin
Should of joined in on the Wednesday fun run.
I mean its probably cheaper to NOT be in here am i right?
Can argue there. Where have the bulls of 2020 gone?
IVZ showing signs of life, no news is good news at this stage.
Saw someone post a link to an AFR article calling VUL a scam dream. It's up 1.3% today. That AFR writer must be seething.
Scam-dreams can make some of the best returns. Until they suddenly don't.
Somehow.. I don't think the writer will be seething as much as you want them to be.
Are the rest of us who think it's a scam dream seething as well today?
When is VUL actually going to provide their "product"?
its a competition between LKE and VUL who is the scammiest lithium speccy with market cap over 1b
It’s a joke that LKE got into the ASX200 🤮
The NFTs of ASXBets.
Gold sector coming up hawt or not? 🪙🪙
I keep wanting to combo BBUS and GEAR and I can’t tell if it’s capitulation or brain damage
Be careful when mixing drugs - here's a guide: [https://i.redd.it/qkkayn7bec531.jpg](https://i.redd.it/qkkayn7bec531.jpg)
The correct combo would be BBOZ/GEAR, or LNAS/SNAS, I think?
if i wanted to lose $200-$300 every fucking day I’d go to the pub.
At least it’d be fun ya Farken.
MAY hotcopper start to use astrology to predict the share price. I'm so confused
Seems to be working though
I don't see it working😅
We’re slightly green in a sea of red, I’ll take what I can get
I'm no better
KOV...🚀🚀🚀🚀🌛 Up 4.99% got the Ezy strut hat out.
Told you something would be green !
I keep shaking the tree but it’s now just a stump in the ground, and actually quite hard to move
I don't understand old reddit. I get that people (including a friend of mine) absolutely love it and would never abandon it, even at gun point...
... but I'm so happy with the new reddit and the dark theme. I think it's a mile better.
You just taught me about dark theme and I love you for it
oh my god. Your life will change forever. My eyes would be bleeding worse than my portfolio if it was still white.
Not that bad surely?
WSB makes asx bets look like ausfinance. I dunno how many of these posts are real, cos they'd be easy to fake... but fuck me so many people blowing up their lives.
No sympathy, they were straight up gambling that money
two directors of Coles both increased their positions by around 30% at $16.70 on the 27th. still questionable whether defensives like this are actually better than cash, but a good sign none the less.
At least we all getting poor together...
KOV has entered the thread...?
Omg that's so true!!! Lol 😆 amen brother
No we're not.
Some of us have tried to tell you about our Lord and saviour SNAS, yet you were too caught up in the illusions of green to listen.
I must admit I'm a victim and snas is amazing, wish I bought yesterday....
Am making 20% on it even with its low ass leverage. At least they don’t expire (well technically they can)
It's not about the money you lost, but the friends you made along the way.
Spoken like a true loser and I couldn't agree more...
LoL why CBA melt down
Something something recession
Even worth holding a bank when you can just get VAS?
Nah wouldn’t go long funds now. I knew CBA is over valued and got putz on it, just paper handed a few days too early. Could’ve been double bagger rather than 36% gain
It's pretty stable and $4+ div/a fully franked isn't bad. Esp if you got onto it earlier
Do you prefer etfs ?
Than 1 large cap yeah haha.
If it’s growth then yeah individual stocks are great.
Exactly. This is my thinking for every single defensive/boomer/dividend paying stock here. Coal, I understand. But banks, large mining cos that your mum and dad invest in etc etc which are all held in every freaking aust based etf/lic....
Why bother? Hill I'm happy to die on.
>Why bother? Hill I'm happy to die on.
Would you say it's a Broken Hill, Perhaps?
Indeed I would! Consider your cheeky riposte in the dailies tonight where my broken hill is guaranteed to feature, and I'll note my great restraint in not mentioning their name, but instead, the joy and wonder of ANL.
Isn't ANL great? I so love ANL. ANL is the best asx\_bets single etf ever.
What I really love about ANL is that there's no guessing - you've either got the joy of ANL at 0.001 cents, or ANL at 0.002 cents.
Where would we be without ANL? Have you been a good autist and [never tried ANL](https://www.reddit.com/r/ASX_Bets/comments/ri67mn/why_you_should_never_try_anl/)?
Fuck me dead.
I wish HZR bought me dinner at least before doing this to me.
Just another ROG.

Sub $150 MQG could be tasty
I keep buying this cunt as it dips, man it be dipping, dipping its buts in my face, fml
Yes but also could easily drop to low $100’s as the cycle is not favouring them at the moment
everything is fine.
Except my portfolio coz it’s so bloody just like a murder scene.
You know what sucks? My passport is up for renewal, so this would be a nice save of a couple hundred bucks that I could put into the asx casino.
But... turns out Optus currently only hold my drivers license not my passport (I checked via the whirlpool post method).
I'm pretty sure Optus will only replace passports for those that actually have passport IDs logged.
It's like the new version of 'sim swapping' where a hacker would pose as you with info from a hacked email, update the phone number to a new phone, send through 2fa to the new phone and take over accounts, stealing crypto or social media accounts and selling them.
I'd highly recommend a podcast called darknet diaries about all this sort of stuff. The complexity of what people have achieved with technology is wild.
Authenticator app instead of SMS auth helps protect against this yeah?
Indeed, it seems to be the hardest one for the hackers to get around compared to sms and email authentication.
>PSA. Australian Government has made Optus agree to have passports replacement paid by them.
Oof. Wonder what the uptake will be? Going to be expensive for Optus, even if they negotiate a fee lower than the usual $308.
Mine due to expire next year, will deffo be taking this as a freebie.
Apparently the Government is struggling to issue 100K passports a month at the moment…
Gotta see if Optus have your passport info first. Don’t think it’s a freebie for everyone
Edit: just saw your comment saying the api shows your passport
Passport numbers do change on renewel, I believe. Drivers license numbers don't.
Panda youre right, but in NSW we call it the “licence number” on the left. And the card number on the right. We want the left changed.
Many institutions now also require the licence number and card number, the card number changes each time a new one is issued.
Passport replacement would have to mean a new number. Optus have said no photos were exposed from the IDs, so a replacement from DFAT might just be a re-issue using all your other info?
My belief is that this isnt an open call for all Optus customers to get free passport renewals - only those deemed eligible.
On another note, the hacker, boy he’s in for a
World of hurt. Federal police, probably ASIO, and Optus probably gonna hire some private sector mercenaries( _consultants_ in under tax reporting)
I'm assuming I'm eligible, checked through the [whirlpool link](https://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/optus_sept_2022_breach) and my passport no. was there
Oh ok. Curious, why did you give them your passport rather than your licence/medicare?
I don't think it would change your original expiry date though.
yeah you could be right, "replacement" might just be re-issue with a new no.
noted. Optus is the next Afterpay
Latest reports say hacker claims to have deleted the data and no longer pursuing extorted money. Got cold feet.
Yeah right. Good thing hackers are so trustworthy. Not.
By latest reports you mean Monday news
Is HangSeng dead? No hope of it coming back?
Is China the reason why hangseng is tanking so badly ?
Is this nordstream thing making gas pump or nah?
nordstream 2 wasn't even online yet.
nordstream 1 was down for maintenance anyway i think?
Nord 1 wasnt flowing any gas already for a number of reasons. All this does is guarantee it won't start flowing again any time no matter how things resolve themselves.
still confident WHC will hit $10 dis yeer. on track for the uuuugeest qrtly in the history of everything. 🤰🏾
Make a bet then 🏻
I has. The risk being you never seeing dis again:🤰🏾
Imma Miss it 🏻
I plan on winning - so nothing to miss 🤰🏾
This WHC pump is as weak as the Nordstream pump rn
All jokes aside, for as long as the war exists and its winter in Europe - then fossil fuel stocks may be … in season
Hah, yea that's how I see it too. I'm trying to weigh up if a potential global recession will put a significant drag on O&G (& coal) demand. Or if people needing to heat their homes and feed themselves will keep costs high
My uncle at Nintendo actually said the recession is cancelled
Nintendo avoided the recession by "printing consoles" early and cheaply. Fully stocked since the very beginning in 2020. The benefits of using older tech.
Super Nintendo Chalmers? Aka Jim Chalmers
Lol NVX market cap is less than 1b now.. what a mf P&D
KO... fucking V. KOV up 4.69%
Honestly if you told me this was the dip from yesterday I would have taken it, not so bad.
Boomer BHP time ?
I got some a few days ago
Love you BHP
Still discounting ..
I miss the good old days of a grey VML 😐
I'm starting to wonder if they won't develop a feasibility study because it's not actually.... I can't even bring myself to say it. I've spent too many years in this stock I'll ride it to 0c.
It’s not completely worthless, guys. Lots of storage space available to lease out in our shed.
My investing infancy is on show for not accounting for that.. so at least we have a secure approx 2m market cap we know it won't go below. I feel a bit better now, might back up the Yaris next payslip.
I was worried Atkins was gonna fill the bastard with processing equipment 😅
The Bears said there would be a dip. Tf is this? A dip for ants????
When you add up all these tiny dips it’s death by a thousand cuts eventually
this is like the tzatziki of dips, not bad but there are better ones
I’m gonna go get [this one later](https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/208803/yumi-s-rocket-basil-pesto-with-roasted-almonds-dip)

Fuck it, I'm gonna do it.
I'm gonna try a subway hotdog.
Edit: Full review will be on purgatory - but to save you all a little stonk money - It's exceptionally bad, and it becomes really obvious why during purchase. Don't bother - it'll be gone within a month
It's not bad, but it ain't a damn Hotdog.
It's basically their generic "Meat Sub" with a tasteless plain Don frankfurt instead of whatever you usually go for. I kinda wish it used the classic sizzle beef(or pork) sausages instead like Bunnings does.
At least it tasted better than the microwave shit 7-11 currently serves up.
I had it on Malted Rye, but with the toppings they recommend, so probably my bread choice made it taste better.
Next time I get it(yeah at $6 it's ok for a half size), I'll just go with my usual "everything including Beetroot" toppings instead of what they went with.
I briefly considered it but then I remembered that their bread feels stale even when it’s straight out the oven and they keep all of their ingredients at room temp
Their stuff is literally rotten a lotten.
My partner used to work in a couple of different branches when she was a teenager. The stories. And she won't go near anything she describes as "bag carrot" any more.
I sometimes want a Subway, then I think of all the horror stories and I have a nice serve of nothing instead.
Also the big boss (ex?) Jared something, is an ultra pedo. So vomit all round.
