Equity Refractory Period

By -

Below is the stock for Playboy (PLBY). Based on its lifetime history:

  1. It began with absolutely nothing special happening;
  2. It then became mildly excited, swelling and rising from its base;
  3. The excitement briefly died down, but in an instant, began to ramp up again with vigor;
  4. The surge swelled, generating excitement and attention, moving to utterly unexpected heights;
  5. Then, suddenly, it was all over, and a slow grind of disinterest ground away into a morass of utter insouciance.

It is 66% smaller than it was during the peak of the excitement.
