    Well, I missed that train. I was about to dump a bit more into $GDDY but felt that it was overvalued at $83… now it’s retracing from its high of $91.60 (would have been a profit of 1 free domain renewal per share [$8.60] at that price) at hopefully a price of $88 (or below) pre-market today. I’m sure that the $5 I lost out on by not investing more a couple of days ago will still turn into $5+ in the long game as GoDaddy keeps growing over time, even during a pandemic as it was one stock that quickly recovered while others are still getting to that point.

    Finally pulled the trigger with a bit at $87.96 and it’s currently trading at $87.85… a whopping 11 cents down per share. I’ll buy it down because it’ll surely go up. The volume is just so little that it’s more of a long-term hold and no worries here.
