Hi guys I have been doing some research on how to capitalise on the reopening of the US economy. I already own some recovery stocks which have been working and I think this play still has some juice left. Below is an a excert of a note for the company DAVE & BUSTERS ENTERTAINMENT ticker PLAY by Andrew Strelzik of BMO

Key takeaways

''Recovery progressing and demand is there. Comp improvement through FY1Q, while aided by stimulus, is indicative of consumer willingness/readiness to re-engage with the brand as COVID-related restrictions are lifted and vaccines are more widely disseminated. Top quartile stores that are indexing 90%+ pre-pandemic volumes and are concentrated in less restricted regions with higher consumer mobility offer further evidence of strong demand as the environment further normalizes.

Several near-term drivers to sustain building top-line momentum. In addition
to the normalizing environment, near-term levers include 1) New York/California re- opening/re-ramping; 2) summer marketing campaign highlighting revamped food/bev platform among other inititiatives; 3) greater focus on marketing through digital/social platforms broadly; and 4) six new games including several big-name titles (Minecraft, Top Gun). PLAY should also benefit from likely reduced competitive headwinds as competitors slow unit growth and focus on core business recovery.''

Personally, looking at the balance sheet and analyst's future estimates, both the earnings and revenue estimates have been upgraded.  These are the things I like to see before I get involved in a company. 


Last price as of close 01-04-2-21.  $45.32   ====> VS   1D 1.55%.     VS 1W 5.55%.  VS  1M 8.04%   VS 3M 57.1%    VS 6M 198%

Right now, looks like momentum is slowing down in the short term which could mean a buying opportunity. I have deployed 1/4 of my max position ( only about £300) will look to add more upon weakness or go full max if as it starts to work with a time horizon of 6 months.  I added a volatility adjusted rescaled range to the price chart. based on the daily close , it looks like the top of the price range is about $57and the price is sitting comfortably near the bottom of the range. Hopefully, I get a meaningful correction and can get involved at a much better price. See chart below. Right now the trading signal looks bearish in the short term pithing a bullish trend therefore overall looks bullish.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
