🥅 Last Minute Rally🙌

Updated: Apr 3, 2021

Hi friends,

Markets cut a little higher overall this past week with the following 5-day record (close date at 3/26/2021):

I must break you
  • Dow Jones 30: 33,072.88 (1.36%, year-to-date: 8.06%)

  • S&P 500: 3,974.54 (1.57%, year-to-date: 5.82%)

  • Nasdaq: 13,138.72 (-0.58%, year-to-date: 1.94%)


Canal constipation

The Suez Canal, an avenue responsible for the passing of tons of consumer goods, was blocked this past week by container ship Ever Given after it wedged itself nearly sideways against the sides of the canal. Other ships delivering goods are looking to find a detours until it gets dislodged. Yikes, that's a lot of money potentially tied up in global trades.


Take a tax hike

All the talk about increasing corporate and high-earner taxes have some investors feeling an itch to pull the trigger on selling off stocks. President Biden's tax plan is eyeing an increase to corporate tax rates to 28%. The goal is to produce a couple trillion dollars in revenue.

Founded in 1978, MU spent its earlier years as a consulting company for semiconductor design. Now it's an 11-figure revenue company. If you've ever been a fan of putting together your own computer, you'll probably remember those hot, bright-red Crucial Ballistix RAM sticks.

  • 2016: $12.4B

  • 2017: $20.32B

  • 2018: $30.39B

Historical Stock Returns:

  • 3-month: 22.57%

  • 1-year: 95.97%

  • 5-year: 738.0%

The past 1 to 5 years paints an optimistic picture. Here's an interesting tidbid though; MU reached its all time high earlier this month, breaking $94 per share. The last all time high was nearly 21 years ago at about $88 and some change per share. The dotcom bubble burst really took its toll on MU (and a lot of other companies). With both of these in mind, remember that past performance isn't always indicative of future results. Always tread lightly.


Who's does Micron Technology compete with?

MU competes with Intel (INTC), Western Digital Corporation (WDC), and Seagate Technology (STX).
