Smart Global Holdings $SGH to be added to @TradeIdeas HOLLY Hot List

March 14, 2018

[originally published March 14, 2018 on medium]

This specialty DRAM manufacturer came public in May of 2017 and has become an all-too-rare-these-days IPO success story. It debuted on the exchange at $12.00 per share and today trades around $40 per share.

With a market cap of $844 million and average daily trading volume of 487,000 shares, $SGH may just be getting started. Since October, it’s been trading in a wide, somewhat sloppy high base (not uncommon for a relatively new issue), but is now edging closer to breaking out to new all-time highs once again. Earnings are coming up next week, so that’s something you may want to consider when sizing your position.

We’ll be jumping in at the opening print tomorrow (Thursday Mar 15, 2018) and we’ll hold this position (as we hold all portfolio positions) until such time that we experience a 20% pullback from the high print we see during our hold.

HOLLY Hot List Portfolio Update

The biggest standout in the portfolio over the past 5 trading days, unfortunately, has been $ARNA which has shed nearly 14% during this time, certainly weighing on the portfolio and offsetting $MRTX’s nearly 13% gain durning this same stretch.
