Fear of Missing Out: Buying when prices rise

The "Fear of Missing Out" – FOMO for short – leads traders to buy stocks whose price has already risen significantly. This trading motive could be observed last week with the security of chip manufacturer Nvidia. The stock recorded a sensational price increase of 17.4 percent over the week. Trader Heiko Lesch (HiKo) knows the reasons for this: "The possibilities of the so-called metaverse and optimism ahead of a developer conference next week are boosting the stock, which is jumping over $300. Nvidia thus reaches a market capitalization of more than $700 billion for the first time." In Leschs wikifolio Blockchain Futuretch, the Nvidia stock is currently weighted at 3.2 percent.

Buying the Dip: Buys when prices fall

# Name Performance 7 days bought in this wikifolio, among others
1 Evotec -4,5% Tradingchancen dt. Nebenwerte
2 BioNTech (ADR) -17,7% Special Situations
3 Basler -8,1% Trend Select Prime
4 Zalando -6,2% World's Best Brands
5 Deutsche Rohstoff -6,7% StarkeHand

The "buying the dip" trading motive is evident when traders buy falling stocks in the hope of a bottoming out – in other words, the imminent turnaround. This is what happened last week with the Hamburg-based biotech company Evotec. The price of the stock is currently burdened by a capital increase and the bumpy start on the U.S. stock exchange Nasdaq. Many wikifolio traders are not unsettled by this and buy with determination.

Taking Profit: Selling when prices are rising

# Name Performance 7 days sold in this wikifolio, among others
1 HelloFresh 10,1% Trend Select Prime
2 TeamViewer 12,0% Nordstern
3 LPKF Laser & Electronics 1,9% Small Caps
4 Lam Research 7,9% Quantencomputer und 5G Technik
5 Nikola 3,8% 25 Jahre Börsenerfahrung

The motive "Taking Profit" – i.e. selling when prices are rising – could be observed last week with HelloFresh. The stock of this German food mail order company rose significantly after the presentation of the latest business figures. Trader Bastian Brach (TBasti) knows the details: "HelloFresh has once again surprised very positively with its quarterly figures and once again exceeded analysts' estimates. With sales above 1.4 billion euros in the traditionally weak Q3, we are now on track for 6 billion euros for the full year, although many investors had been expecting a slump in the post-Corona year just a few quarters ago." Many traders took the price gains as an opportunity to sell HelloFresh stocks. But not so Brach. The top trader increased his holding even further and now has the security weighted at 36.6 percent in his wikifolio Predictable Consumer Stocks.

Jumping the Ship: Selling when prices are falling

# Name Performance 7 days sold in this wikifolio, among others
1 Roku -12,1% 2M - Market Momentum
2 Varta -16,6% Aktien-Werte First
3 Square -5,7% Intelligent Matrix Trend
4 Fiverr International -7,7% Bigplayer Zukunfttechnologien
5 Pinduoduo (ADR) -10,4% Nordstern

Selling when prices are falling – this is what characterizes the "Jumping the Ship" category. The same fate befell the US technology company Roku last week. The manufacturer of media streaming adapters recently disappointed with weak customer growth. A significant correction of the stock was the consequence. However, things haven't really been running smoothly for Roku for quite some time. The company has been continuously losing stock market value since July 2021.
