    I bet replacement parts for these are in short supply and are needed by large enterprise who have these in use somewhere for some mission critical tasks.

    Check for 'tokenization' solutions for obfuscating the PAN (personal account number). I would be very surprised if that doesn't yield results, as this is a common issue in obtaining PCI-DSS...

    It seems that almost everybody who bought in March 2020 should be up by massive percentages by now. Oil was lagging for a long time, but the recent Texas freeze episode seems to have renewed interest...

    I haven't really ventured much further than buying shares, so perhaps a put option is better than CDS. Can you easily roll over put options if the share price hasn't gone down to the point you...

    As much as I've been tempted to, I'll avoid shorting Tesla. Maybe CDS is a better way to play this, but not really accessible for small retail investors like us.

    Where I live we're now at 255 per 100000 for the Covid19 incidence rate, just behind Paris at 260.

    Seems like one of the highest incidence rates in Europe.
