So, I took a look at ARKX's holdings.... it's number 2 holding is another ETF managed by Cathie.

Yeah, read a bunch about ARKX the other day. Nothing in there at all that says 'innovation', IMO. Hard pass.

My returns this year tell me Cathie is a fraud.

Anyone that uses the terms disruptive and are not discussing the results of eating taco bell or primanitis is just a blowhard.

I am once again asking for advice on non qualified stock options that I have.

My company performance is well and I have ~$90-95 a share in value at the moment.

I've always been told it's best to keep them until they expire, but is there any fault in scraping a little profit at the moment?

I am also right against the $150k income levels, so I want to do my best to remain under that level at least for this year. Would exercising 1/3 of my options be a bad call?

IMO, there is nothing wrong with taking some profit here and there.

I learned this the hard way: exercising stock doesn't count toward income but it does count toward your AMT (alternative minimum tax). Number of options exercised * exercise price * ~26%. I'm gonna owe like $60k in taxes this year because I didn't know that

I wouldn't have exercised all the options if I knew about it thus not triggering AMT

you only owe AMT if your AMT is higher than your regular income tax

My understanding is non qualified options are treated as ordinary income.

TSLA was +$20 in PM, and virtually all of that has been wiped out now.

There was a time today that F was 1/11 stocks I watch that was down. Also, MGI went off again. It's up 11% today and was up 6% a different day this week.

I don't think I've ever seen CD or bank account rates as low as I see right now. My local CU had a 3-year CD special open last month at 1.5%, so I dumped her maturing CD right into it. Now I only see 3 banks with a rate above 1%. I miss the old ING Direct days of 5+% returns on a savings account.

Morningstar slapping the Neutral rating on Ark Innovation. Below industry standard approach to risk management.

TSLA up $49 in PM and still climbing. It will likely finish down $20. :lol:
