Sidus Space Stock: A Tiny Geospatial Intelligence Stock

Just like market reports, reliable business statistics are hard to come by. Somewhere between 0.00006% and 2.5% of companies reach the billion-dollar milestone.

Is Astra Space Stock Ready to Launch Real Revenues?

Redwire Space Stock is Pure Play on Space Infrastructure

It’s part of human nature to want to put a label on something, even when we don’t quite know how to categorize it. One of the best examples out there is Gonzo the Great, the Muppet with an unhealthy fetish for chickens. People have been asking for decades: What the hell is Gonzo? Maybe a […]

Planet Labs Stock After the Dust Has Settled

Why is Planet Labs Stock Falling Like a Rock?

Nothing screams “I know nothing about investing” more than someone who celebrates short-term stock price movements.

Many the newbie “investor” has watched a stock gain +100% and then ended up selling at a -50% loss. The […]

Why We’re Avoiding Maxar Technologies Stock

There’s an entire contingent of twats on Twitter who think the way to be a successful investor is to find one stock they like and then cram it down everyone’s throats as if they’re selling Amway products.
