🥖➕⚫ Lang & Schwarz 💎Platinum💎 Update DD

WKN: 645932
Hallo liebe LUStmolche und Freunde der nicht ganz so subtilen Peniswitze!
Da es viel Bewegung gab im rauf und runter unseres Lieblingsdödels, dachte ich mir ich bring mal alle Mitleser auf den neuesten Stand.
1) Was ist Lang & Schwarz?
Zum einen, das was ihr nie in der Schublade eurer Mutti finden wollt, zum anderen einfach gesagt ein Börsenplatz der eure Trades abwickelt. Alle Grundlegenden Infos findet ihr in den vorherigen DDs:
2) Was gibt es neues bei L&S? 🥖
Bei L&S gibt es ein paar News:
3) Was gibt es neues bei Trade Republic? 💰💰💰
TR bleibt auch weiterhin der größte Partner von L&S und daher haben Neuigkeiten bei TR auch immer Einfluss auf L&S.
4) Zahlen 2020 und der Bankenfonds 🤔
Vergangenen Freitag hat L&S seinen offiziellen Geschäftsbericht 2020 vorgestellt. Wirtschaftlich betrachtet entspricht alles dem, was auch vorher Kommuniziert wurde. Das wichtigste im Überblick:
Demnach beträgt der wirtschaftliche Gewinn 37,76 Mio. Euro oder ziemlich genau 12,00 Euro EPS. Schon im Februar wurde dazu eine Dividende von 4 Euro und ein 1:3 Aktiensplit zum Beschluss auf der HV vorgeschlagen.
Auf den Jahresschlusskurs 2020 bedeutet das ein KGV von ca. 5-6.
Für etwas Verwirrung sorgte am Wochenende die Zuführungen in den Bankenfonds, das möchte ich an dieser Stelle in mal erklären:
Der "Fonds für allgemeine Bankrisiken" (§ 340e Abs. 4 HBG) hat nichts mit einem Fonds in unserem Sinne zu tun, sondern ist erstmal nur eine Bilanzrückstellung mit Eigenkapitalcharakter. Seit der letzten Finanzkrise müssen Finanzinstitute diesen bilden um Kapitalrisiken abzufangen. Dem Fonds müssen jährlich mindestens 10% der Nettoerträge des Handelsbestands zugeführt werden und dann gibt es bestimmte regeln wie dieses Geld wieder verwendet werden darf.
Im Falle von L&S entspricht diese Pflichtzuführung 2020 6,379 Mio. Euro, nur dieser Anteil ist an diese Reglungen gebunden.
L&S hat sich jedoch etwas unerwartet dafür entschlossen den kompletten Jahresüberschuss abzgl. der vorgeschlagenen Dividende (insgesamt 27 Mio Euro) in die Rückstellungsposition für den Bankenfonds zu schieben.
Wichtig ist, dass die Pflichtzuführung separat ausgewiesen wurden, d.h. die Restlichen 21 Mio. wie Eigenkapital für L&S frei verfügbar.
Als Investoren hätten wir uns natürlich gefreut, wenn diese 21 Mio einfach als Gewinnrücklage verbucht werden. In der Praxis macht es keinen Unterschied, in der Außendarstellung verringert sich jedoch der scheinbare Gewinn. Wie dies von den Börsenportalen verarbeitet wird, bleibt abzuwarten.
5) Q1 Zahlen: "Läuft bei uns" 👌
Neben dem Geschäftsbericht hat L&S auch eine abschließende Ad-Hoc für die Q1 Zahlen rausgehauen. Hier auch das wichtigste im Überblick:
Der Konzernüberschuss im Q1 liegt bei 28,3 Mio. Euro oder ziemlich genau 9 Euro EPS.
Die Mitarbeiterzahl liegt derzeit bei 73.
6) Aktuelle Situation 📅
LUS Update KW 21
Nach der hohen Handelsaktivität in Q1 hat sich der Gesamtmarkt etwas abgekühlt, wir bewegen uns aber weiterhin deutlich über dem 2020 Niveau.
Dies kann man im Vergleich zu Xetra und TG gut nachvollziehen: Die etwas schwächeren Handelswochen der vergangenen Monat haben wenig mit L&S an sich zu tun, der Marktanteil blieb in etwa gleich. Sicherlich spielen hier auch die vielen Feiertage und Öffnung des Lockdowns mit rein.
Was in jedem Fall zu beachten ist: Die Rendite vom Handelsvolumen ist in diesem Jahr deutlich gestiegen (0,10% vs. 0,15%), d.h. selbst wenn sich das Niveau wieder an das von 2020 angleicht, fällt der Rohertrag um ca. 50% höher aus.
7) EPS Prognose 🔜
Schreibt man die aktuellen Zahlen für Juni fort ergibt sich rein aus der Handelstätigkeit in meiner Berechnung folgendes Bild:
Q2 Prognose
Die hohen Betriebsausgaben in Q1 lassen sich zum großen Teil durch Rückstellung für Mitarbeiterprovisionen begründen, ich denke diese werden in Q2 wieder etwas abnehmen, daher schätze ich den Betriebsaufwand auf 8-9 Mio. Euro.
Zusätzlich wird L&S in diesem Quartal die Steuerrückzahlungen im Wert von 2 Euro pro Aktie verbuchen.
Ihr wisst ich bin kein Freund von langfristigen Prognosen über die Handelstätigkeit, da hier zu viele unbekannte im Spiel sind. Trotzdem habe ich vor einigen Wochen mal versucht die Saisonalität der Börsen im Jahresmittel zu betrachten um eine Art Baseline für dieses Jahr zu schaffen:
Saisonalität im Börsenhandelsvolumen
Schaut man sich die quartalsweise Betrachtung rechts an, kann man denke ich vorsichtig annehmen, dass Q2 und Q3 im Schnitt ca. 20% unter Q1 und Q4 liegen.
Wenden wir dies auf L&S an (also Q3 wie Q2 und Q4 20% darüber) würde das für 2021 grob folgendes Bild ergeben:
L&S EPS Prognose 2021
Bei einem EPS von >30 Euro kann ein Aktienkurs von unter 200 Euro nicht gerechtfertigt werden, da eine Übernahme durch Fremde Investoren sehr lukrativ wäre. LUS verfügt außerdem nun über Eigenkapital von 93,3 Mio. Euro oder 29 Euro pro Aktie, welches man zusätzlich zu den Gewinnerwartungen betrachten solle.
8) MSW Tracking 🕵️‍♂️
Ich war die letzten zwei Wochen zwar etwas schlampig in der Erfassung aber hier die aktuellen Zahlen des msw Trackings:
Ich tracke derzeit 367 Leute hier die LUS Anteile besitzen, davon habe ich bei 210 die Position. Insgesamt halten diese 210 Mitglieder 36.366 Anteile, das entspricht 1,16% der Gesamtanteile. Durchschnittlich werden 173 Anteile gehalten. Der durchschnittliche EK liegt bei ca. 126 Euro.
Die Top 10 ist wie folgt:
4505 2570 2373 2000 1860 1475 1200 1095 1000 700
11) Kann ich meinem Nachwuchs Kindergeschichten über LUS zum einschlafen vorlesen? 💤
Ja gibt es hier, hier, hier, und hier.
10) Die Dödelseite hat eine neue Adresse 💻
Die heißesten Infos gibt es natürlich wie immer bei meiner Webseite, welche dank xeophon nun ein neues Heim hat:
https://wielangistlangundschwarz.de/
11) Kommt in die Gruppe zur LUS HV! 🍻
Am 26.08.2021 findet voraussichtlich im Intercontinental Hotel Düsseldorf die LUS Hauptversammlung in Präsenz statt. Hier im Forum gab es schon viele Zusagen, um sich da mal so richtig volllaufen zu lassen und Franz den Nachtisch zu klauen. Ob Dosenbier aus dem Octavia RS in der Tiefgarage, Kekswichsen mit fresh-environment-01, w:o Mitglieder mobben oder nachts besoffen in den Rhein fallen, es wird für jeden etwas geboten!
Und das beste ist, für nur unschlagbare 135€ könnt ihr euch derzeit eine Aktie und damit ein Ticket fürs Buffet zulegen.
Meine Position: 1860 Anteile zu 124 Euro
Zu guter Letzt die obligatorischen Emojis:

Wir sind alle gefickt - Übersetung von "We're All Fucked" von u/CoffeeLaxative

Hello liebe Mit-Affen!
Eigentlich wollte ich euch heute eine verständliche Zusammenfassung zu den Posts bezüglich der FTD-Schleifen liefern. Präzise zu zeigen, wieso die SHFs ihre Short-Positionen nicht gedeckt haben und woran wir dies wie erkennen können, ist, denke ich, zurzeit eines der wichtigsten Themen (schon eine ganze Weile, aber wenn wir eine verständliche Darstellung haben, können vielleicht mehr Menschen die Gründe für den anhaltenden Hype um GME nachvollziehen und sie überlegen es sich nochmal, ob sie nicht doch lieber Affen werden). Leider bin ich noch nicht dazu gekommen (falls jemand schon eine gute (auf deutsch) hat, gerne her damit).
[Edit 2: Ich habe soeben die leicht verständliche und einführende Zusammenfassung von u/HCMF_MaceFace zur GME-Saga übersetzt. Ihr findet diese Übersetzung hier.]
Ich habe allerdings einen anderen, dafür sehr aktuellen Leckerbissen für euch in petto: We´re All Fucked von u/CoffeeLaxative. Darin geht´s um die Lage des US-amerikanischen (und auch globalen) Finanzmarkt und die, wie es scheint, düsteren allgemeinen Aussichten. Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob alle Quellen auch wirklich aussagekräftig und alle Schlussfolgerungen dementsprechend auch bedeutsam sind (Korrekturen oder bessere Quellen erwünscht). Dennoch entsteht ein bestimmtes Bild, von dem ich denke, dass es ganz gut ist, sich mal damit auseinandergesetzt zu haben. Viel Spaß bei der Lektüre und schöne Pfingsttage!

"Wir sind alle gefickt

Ich habe keinen Hintergrund in Makroökonomie. Tatsächlich bin ich im Gesundheitswesen tätig. Das Folgende ist jedoch das, was ich in den 3 Monaten, in denen ich investiert habe, gesammelt habe und in denen ich mehr über Wirtschaft und Finanzen gelernt habe als über mein eigenes Fachgebiet. Sagt mir, was ihr denkt und wo wir stehen. Der Titel meines Beitrags fasst meine Gedanken ziemlich gut zusammen. Wenn ich irgendwelche Fehler gemacht habe, lasst es mich bitte wissen. Immerhin bin ich ein Glatt-🧠.

1. S&P 500 inflationsbereinigte Ertragsrendite 🔥.

Ihr kennt vielleicht schon die Abbildung aus diesem Beitrag. Es handelt sich um die inflationsbereinigte Ertragsrendite des S&P 500, die jetzt unter 0 gefallen ist und damit ein 40-Jahres-Tief erreicht hat. Die letzten Male, als sie unter 0 fiel, waren 2008 (Immobilienblase), 2000 (Dotcom-Blase), 1987 (Schwarzer Montag), 1973 (Rezession). Und sie geht wieder unter. Hier ist ein weiterer Beitrag darüber, mit einem Brief von Crescat Capital. Im Wesentlichen: drohender Boom ?
https://preview.redd.it/8mdvbw3htr071.png?width=714&format=png&auto=webp&s=fb4a99adc1ae15ae55cb509969b7a89685660718

2. Der Repo-Markt 💣

Es war zuletzt in aller Munde. In jüngster Zeit hat die Fed Reverse-Repo-Geschäfte (umgekehrte Rückkaufgeschäfte) mit immer höheren Beträgen durchgeführt. Am 20. Mai erreichten wir mit $351 Mrd. und 48 teilnehmenden Kontrahenten den fünfthöchsten Wert aller Zeiten.
Am 21. Mai erreichten die Reverse-Repo-Geschäfte dann $369 Mrd. mit 52 Teilnehmern! Vergleicht dies mit der Situation vor zwei Wochen, als wir weniger als die Hälfte dieser Summe hatten, nämlich $155B am 6. Mai. Hier ist ein Chart, der Reverse Repos von Januar bis heute zeigt. Bemerkt ihr den exponentiellen Anstieg? Ja, die Scheiße ist abgefuckt.
Wenn Ihr mit dem Repo-Markt nicht vertraut seid, empfehle ich Euch, dies zu lesen: The Imminent Liquidity Crisis & Reverse Repos Usage (Die drohende Liquiditätskrise und die Verwendung von Reverse Repos) oder seht euch das YouTube-Video von George Gammon an (Repo Market Rates Turn Negative).
Quelle: https://apps.newyorkfed.org/markets/autorates/temp
Was bedeutet das? Es bedeutet, dass es zu viel Bargeld im System gibt und nicht genug Sicherheiten (wie Staatsanleihen). Es bedeutet, dass es ein Ungleichgewicht zwischen Dollars (die im Wesentlichen IOUs sind) und dem gibt, was den Wert des Dollars stützt.
Warum Ungleichgewicht?
Jetzt will also niemand $ (außer ihr und ich) und alle diese Institutionen wollen Staatsanleihen. Und seit dem 21. Mai haben Schatzanleihen einen negativen Zinssatz!
Mit anderen Worten: die Banken und Institutionen wollen diese Staatsanleihen so sehr, dass sie bereit sind, dafür mehr als das zu zahlen, was sie wert sind, um sie in die Hände zu bekommen.

3. Krypto Korrektur / Crash ⚡

Der Krypto-Markt fiel in den vergangenen 2 Wochen um $1 Billionen ($700 Milliarden letzte Woche und ~$300 Milliarden in der Woche zuvor, wenn ich meine Fakten richtig). Der führende Coin ging von ~$59k auf ~$30k und alle anderen Coins folgten.
Es gibt eine MENGE unterschiedlicher Meinungen zu diesem Thema, dazu, warum es passiert ist... Elon Musk, China, etc.. Einigen wir uns darauf, dass es wahrscheinlich eine Kombination aus allem war. Es scheint auch, dass der führende Coin einer lehrbuchmäßigen Wyckoff-Distribution folgte, im Wesentlichen eine Methode, um Kleinanleger zu schröpfen (wieder einmal!).
Riesige Volumenspitze am 19. Mai. Sehr verdächtig
Der Ausverkauf fand hauptsächlich zwischen 8:50 - 8:55 AM EST statt und hielt bis 9:10 AM am 19. Mai an.
Was geschah am 19. Mai? Oh, richtig! Das OCC hatte zuvor einen Brief an die Mitglieder herausgegeben, in dem sie diese über eine vorübergehende Erhöhung der Einlagen für den Clearingfonds in Höhe von insgesamt $588M informierte, fällig um 9:00 AM am 19.5.2021. Also, lasst uns alle zustimmen, dass der Absturz durch eine Kombination von allem verursacht wurde lol.
Viele Münzen waren vor 6 Tagen betroffen. Screenshot von u/incandescent-leaf

4. Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities (CMBS) 🏬 (= kommerzielle hypothekenbesicherte Wertpapiere)

Laut Fitch Ratings stiegen die Ausfälle von US-CMBS im April zum ersten Mal seit Oktober 2020 an, hauptsächlich bei Hotels und regionalen Einkaufszentren.
Quelle: https://www.fitchratings.com/research/structured-finance/us-cmbs-delinquencies-tick-up-in-april-for-first-time-since-october-2020-07-05-2021
Ich weiß nicht, wie es euch geht, aber das erinnert mich an etwas... und das sieht nicht gut aus.

5. Banken, Hedge-Fonds und die Fed arbeiten 24/7 🏦

Wir haben die Nachtbilder gesehen und sie genossen. Heutzutage ziemlich die Norm, aber immer noch recht ungewöhnlich.
https://preview.redd.it/tw0ubnrays071.png?width=1902&format=png&auto=webp&s=f7fae2895a00a4292eb6c22b3cf92fbbb9d6cccb
Aber halt! Da ist noch mehr. Nicht nur, dass sie sich mit dem Aktienmarkt, dem Repo-Markt, Krypto, CMBS beschäftigen und ihre Mitarbeiter für Überstunden bezahlen müssen... sie verlieren auch noch Geld durch Bußgelder.
Außerdem gibt es jede Woche seltsame oder schlechte Nachrichten:
Dazu kommt, dass die CEOs aller großen US-Banken diese Woche am 26. und 27. Mai vor dem Kongress aussagen müssen. Quelle: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-04-15/wall-street-bank-ceos-called-to-testify-before-congress-in-may

6. Die Reichen lassen sich scheiden und/oder verkaufen Aktien 💔.

Bill Gates hat sich also scheiden lassen, und Gabe Plotkin auch? Hm. Seltsam...
Wow. Das sind eine Menge Aktien. Eine Woche, bevor der Tech-Sektor abstürzte.
Mark Zuckerberg verkauft FB Aktien in den letzten 2 Wochen
Google auch?

6. Der heimische Markt und die internationalen Märkte 📉. [ja, zweimal 6. ;)]

Werfen wir einen Blick zurück auf die vergangenen 2 Wochen.
19.05. von u/CryptoFX1
Am 12. Mai blutete der Nikkei. Nur noch 1% vom Tief vom 28. Januar entfernt. Von u/incandescent-leaf
\"Der Taiwan Stock Exchange Index hat gerade die YTD-Gewinne vernichtet. Das ist abnormal. Es ist sehr wahrscheinlich, dass es auch die US-Märkte beeinflussen wird (obwohl viele argumentieren können, dass dies eigentlich eine Reflexion der US-Märkte ist, und ich würde zustimmen)\" von u/_atworkdontsendnudes
Ok, der Markt hat hier und da seine grünen Tage gehabt. Aber insgesamt war er ziemlich ungewöhnlich rot, oder? Ja, außerdem könnte das alles nichts miteinander zu tun haben. Es könnte ein Zufall sein. Was weiß ich denn schon? Das müsst ihr selbst beurteilen.

7. Die Medien 📰.

In der Regel sehr voreingenommen oder gekauft, aber es gibt einige Ausnahmen wie diesen Artikel: Stehen wir am Rande einer neuen Finanzkrise? Der Fall GameStop, die Signale der Hedge-Fonds und der Aufstieg der Kryptowährungen.
Beunruhigend ist, dass sogar "voreingenommene Medien" vor Inflation, Hyperinflation und einem bevorstehenden Crash warnen. Keine Links, geht einfach auf YouTube. Wenn sie darüber reden, wissen wir, dass die Kacke schon am Dampfen ist...

8. GameStop 🎮

Ich denke, ihr wisst, woran ich denke. Lasst mich das einfach wiederholen. Wir haben unter Einhaltung der Regeln gegen Spieler mit Cheat-Codes in einem unfairen Spiel gespielt, das darauf ausgelegt ist, dass wir verlieren. Und doch sind wir hier.
Kauft, hodl, und stimmt mit-🐈 & 🦍& 🐜. Ich schätze euch alle. Der Rest kann sich gleich verziehen.
🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀
Edit: Alles klar, wer zum Teufel hat mich gemeldet? Scheint so, als ob die Shills das nicht mögen. An alle anderen, ich bin vollkommen glücklich mit meinem Leben 😉🤑."

Edit: u/Yungohan hat mich darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass sich Bill Gates und nicht Jeff Bezos kürzlich hat scheiden lassen ;)

🥖➕⚫ Lang & Schwarz Extra Premium Update DD

Ich entschuldige mich jetzt schon mal für das Text/Emoji Verhältnis. Fragt doch einfach euren gesetzlichen Betreuer ob die euch den Beitrag heute Nacht am Bett vorlesen.
WKN: 645932
Und für alle die es immer noch nicht gecheckt haben: Ihr könnt L&S nicht über Trade Republic kaufen. TR wickelt Käufe über L&S ab, ihr könnt L&S nicht bei sich selber kaufen.
Tl;dr:
Ich denke die Entscheidung ob ihr in L&S investieren solltet richtet sich nach eurer Grundeinstellung zum Markt. Da gibt es meiner Meinung nach grade drei Szenarien:
1. Markt bleibt stabil: 🥖➕🟢
Nach der Abwärtsbewegung im letzten Monat scheint es jetzt wieder etwas bergauf zu gehen. Bleibt das so könnte das Ergebnis von L&S noch weit über unseren vorsichtigen Prognosen liegen.
2. Die große Korrektur kommt doch noch:🥖➕🔴🔜🥖➕🟢
Ein genereller Abverkauf würde den Kurs von L&S sicherlich auch vorerst nach unten ziehen. L&S hat jedoch im letzten Monat massiv von den Abverkäufen profitiert, natürlich könnten hohe Verluste am Markt ein paar Kleinanleger abschrecken, doch letztes Jahr hat man gesehen, dass sobald es wieder bergauf geht, ein Haufen neuer Investoren an den Markt kommt um günstig einzusteigen. Die letzte Krise hat L&S erst groß gemacht und ich denke nicht das eine weitere Krise L&S jetzt nachhaltig schaden könnte.
3. Die Salami-Korrektur:🥖➕⚪
Es kommt zu einer langsamen aber stetigen Abwärtsbewegung im Markt. Es gibt so gut wie keine Anzeichen dafür und die Salami ist in der Marktgeschichte sehr selten. Langanhaltende Verluste könnten sich negativ auf die Handelsaktivität auswirken, Leute halten lieber und bleiben bei Cash bis sich etwas ändert. Da L&S tief bewertet ist, würden sie wahrscheinlich einfach langsam mit dem Markt fallen. Das Gute ist, L&S hat jetzt schon für dieses Jahr seinen Kurs gerechtfertigt, selbst wenn sich die Handelsaktivität deutlich abschwächt gibt es keinen ernsten Grund warum L&S stark fallen sollte.
Ich dachte ich mach mal als Update ein FAQ, darin wird sich einiges wiederholen, einiges wird vertieft und einiges neues ist auch dabei.
Für die Basics verweise ich auch auf die vorherigen DDs:
Lang & Schwarz Investment
💎💹 Lang & Schwarz Premium Update DD
Meine aktuelle Prognose:
Q1: 10 Euro EPS
2021: >36 Euro EPS (12 Euro nach Split) ohne Annahme von Wachstumsfaktoren.
⭐ FAQ ⭐
1) Was ist Lang & Schwarz?
Auf diese Frage gibt es zwei Antworten: Zum einen ist es das, was Riley Reid häufiger im Mund hat als ihre Zahnbürste, zum anderen ist es ein Market Maker Unternehmen aus Düsseldorf. Für alle Inzelte und Zwecke ist L&S eine Börse, genau wie Xetra oder Tradegate. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Börsen bietet L&S verlängerte Handelszeiten von 7:30-23:00 Uhr an, sowie Handelsfenster Samstags und Sonntags.
2) Wie verdient L&S Geld?
Jedes mal wenn ihr etwas an einer Börsen handelt gibt es einen Spread zwischen Kauf und Verkaufspreis, an diesem Spread verdient L&S ein bisschen. Damit mehr Broker über L&S handeln gibt L&S einen kleinen Teil davon als Kickback an die Broker zurück. Wenn viele Leute das machen verdient L&S viel Geld.
3) Welche Broker arbeiten mit L&S?
Der mit Abstand größte ist Trade Republic. TR wurde in Kooperation mit L&S gegründet und ist stark mit L&S verbunden. Durch das Kickback Modell verdienen beide Partner eine Menge Geld, TR hat weitere Expansion mit L&S angekündigt. Weitere Partner sind z.b. Comdirect, Flatex und Justtrade. Eine Übersicht findet ihr hier und hier.
4) Was macht L&S sonst so?
L&S betreibt die social Trading Platform wikifolio und emittiert auch selbst Derivate zum Handeln. Aktuell baut L&S weitere Standbeine an den Wiener und Berner Börsen auf.
5) Wo steht L&S grade?
Durch die Partnerschaft mit TR und dem Kleinanlegerboom nach dem Corona-Crash konnte L&S seine Handelsaktivität und Gewinne enorm steigern. Der Rohertrag 2020 lag bei 79 Mio. Euro, der Reingewinn bei 37,7 Mio. Euro oder 12 Euro pro Aktie. Um den Jahreswechsel ist L&S jedoch nochmal stark gewachsen. Dieses Jahr stand heute konnten wir schon 8-10 Euro EPS erwirtschaften. Extrapoliert man die Handelsumsätze und Erträge der letzten drei Monate auf 2021 (ohne Annahme von weiterem Wachstum) ergibt sich ein Gewinn von rund 40 Euro EPS.
L&S wird Mitte/Ende April schon den Gewinn von 2020 erwirtschaftet haben.
6) Woher weißt du das alles?
Als Börsenplatz muss L&S alle Handelsaktivitäten offenlegen, die kann sich jeder wenn er will runterladen. Natürlich gibt es dann Leute die das sammeln und auswerten. Anhand der gemeldeten Ergebnisse können wir dann die Beziehung zwischen Handelsaktivität und Unternehmensgewinnen feststellen. Aktuelle Zahlen gibt es z.b. jeden Sonntag hier.
Wenn Bedarf besteht kann ich gerne nochmal erklären wie man daraus Gewinnprognosen errechnen kann.
7) L&S ist Anfang des Jahres stark gestiegen, heißt das, die sind überbewertet?
Nein. Bezogen auf die Gewinne des letzten Jahres wird L&S mit einem KGV von rund 10 bewertet, anhand des aktuellen Ertragniveaus ergibt sich ein KGV von 3-4. Value Aktien werden meist mit einer KGV von 10-20 gehandelt, Growth-Werte findet man selten unter 20. Direkter Konkurrent Tradegate hatte in den letzten Jahren immer ein KGV zwischen 18 und 36, meistens um die 30. Absolute Hype Werte wie Tesla erreichen ein KGV von >900.
8) Ich hab nach dem letzten DD schon investiert und stehe jetzt 15% im Minus!
Wie schon geschrieben ist L&S keine Aktie für kurzfristige Gewinnmitnahmen. Seit meinem letzten Update gab es keine offiziellen Meldungen von L&S, unser Datamining ist dem normalen Anleger nicht bekannt, der denkt noch die guten Januarwerte waren eine Ausnahme, wir wissen es besser. Gleichzeitig besteht viel Unsicherheit am Markt, daher hat L&S nach dem rasanten Anstieg erstmal vorsichtig nach unten korrigiert.
9) Was steht in der nächsten Zeit an?
Nächste Woche sind Baader Earnings (evtl. schießt L&S da dann auch ne Meldung raus), ansonsten Anfang April (ist nicht ganz klar ob sie eine Ad-Hoc machen müssen aber es bietet sich an, fällt mit Ostern zusammen also wenn dann sofort der 1. April), sonst ist dann Ende Mai ein fixer Termin (Meldung zu fertigem Jahresabschluss).
Im August findet die Hauptversammlung statt, Der Vorstand wird da eine 4 Euro Dividende sowie einen 3:1 Split vorschlagen.
10) Ich mag TR nicht, ist das kein Risiko für L&S?
TR ist ein junges Unternehmen, dass auch mal Fehler macht, im Großen ganzen bieten Sie aber das beste Produkt für Kleinanleger an. Die GME Geschichte hat den Download Zahlen von TR jedenfalls nicht geschadet.
11) Ich hab irgendwas mit Frankreich gehört?
TR hat enorme Expansionspläne in der EU, alles mit L&S als Partner. In Österreich ist man schon gestartet und in Frankreich läuft es grad an. Seit einem Monat kann man sich anmelden, viel Werbung macht man jedoch noch nicht. Ich denke wir befinden uns in einer Art Testphase.
In Frankreich bestimmen grade Hausbanken und eToro den Brokermarkt. eToro ist zwar günstig, aber ehr was für Daytrader anstatt von normalen Kleinanlegern.
Im Französischen Appstore belegt TR zur zeit Platz 52 in der Finance Kategorie (In Deutschland ist es Platz 4). Das klingt zwar nach wenig, der einzige direkte Konkurrent ist jedoch eToro auf Platz 35. In Frankereich sind sehr viele Bankenapps und Haushaltsplaner in diesem Ranking, eine große Broker App konnte sich noch nicht wirklich durchsetzen.
Es bleibt abzuwarten ob TR in Frankreich durchstarten kann wenn sie anfangen aktiv Kunden zu akquirieren.
12) Kryptos?
Letzte Woche gab es hier einen User bei dem in der TR App Kryptos zum Handel angezeigt wurden.
Es ist offen ob diese über L&S abgewickelt werden, aber bei den App Rankings sieht man, dass Apps wie Binance oder Coin Base nach TR die beliebtesten Handelsapps sind. Wenn TR diese Produkte integriert können die da ne Menge Kunden abgreifen die dann auch Aktien handeln werden.
Bis jetzt bleibt das aber erstmal ein Gerücht.
13) Wer ist grad in L&S investiert?
L&S wird immer noch durch Kleinanleger bestimmt (>80%). Es gibt ein paar Private mit vielen Aktien, keiner von denen kommt jedoch über 1%. Kann L&S die guten Zahlen fortschreiben ist es durchaus möglich dass mehr Institutionelle und Fonds auf L&S aufmerksam werden.
14) Wer ist eigentlich Franz?
Franz ist der Boomer in jedem von uns.
15) 400€ wann? wann viagra? 1000€ EOY?
Erstmal wiederhole ich: Wenn ihr kurzfristig Geld verzocken möchtet bleibt bei den andern Meme Aktien.
Wir können bei L&S durch unsere Datenlage relativ gut Mindestkursziele bestimmen, wann genau die eintreffen ist jedoch schwierig zu sagen und hat mit der allgemeinen Kenntnis der Anleger über L&S zu tun.
Nach den aktuellen Zahlen sollten wir Ende des Jahres bei einem Kurs von mindestens 300 Euro liegen. Dies unter der Annahme, dass Investoren immer noch sehr vorsichtig agieren und ohne weiteres Wachstum.
Nach oben hin ist alles offen, ihr kennt die Zahlen und dürft gerne rechnen. Und ja wenn man die KGV von Tradegate annimmnt sind 1000 Euro auch drin, versprechen werde ich aber nichts.
16) Was ist mit Ballerbank?
Ich habe auch weiterhin eine kleinere Position in Baader, die werde ich auch halten. Fragt mich jedoch nicht nach Details, ich hab keine Ahnung.
17) Ist das hier Anlageberatung? Was ist deine Position?
Nein, ich schreibe hier meine Meinung und versuche nach bestem Wissen die Fakten zu präsentieren.
Meine Position ist 1913 Stück @ 129 EUR.

I made a Node.js Discord app that tracks cryptocurrency price

It tracks by periodically fetching from an API and updating a bot's nickname with price and activity with market cap.
Repo link: https://github.com/Omar-Aziz/KryptoBOT
Usage example
My next step is to polish the readme and possibly do more refactoring. Feel free to use it, create any issues if you see any and bless me with your feedback.

Respect Futuro! (DC, Pre-Crisis Earth-132)

FUTURO

In an alternate timeline where Krypton was stopped from exploding, Kal-El never arrived on Earth and thus, grew up as a normal Kryptonian! However, in his final year of schooling one of his professors, the mild-mannered Xan-Du. built a Super Static-Ray in order to increase the size of animals! However, it went slightly awry, causing it to instead cause completely random effects each time it was fired!
Then, Kal-El's dog Krypto bumped him into the path of the beam, thus giving the two of the super abilities! Now the strongest Kryptonian alive, Xan-Du became a super-hero called Futuro!
Eventually, the spunky reporter Lois Lane stowed away on a moon mission that overshot a little and ended up on Krypton, where she quickly fell in mutual love with the mighty Futuro. They decided to get married and live on Earth, but not before blasting Kal-El with the Super-Static Machine, leaving him to be the new hero of Krypton... Superman!

Respect Power Girl (Post-Crisis)

Respect Kara Zor-L, Power Girl

Well, I don't know who you are, mister -- much less why I should listen to you -- but I'll give you one piece of of news and one suggestion... the name is Power Girl: P... O... W... E... R... G... I... R... L -- and the suggestion is that you stay out of my way...
 
After discovering Krypton was about to explode, Kara's father Zor-L launched her as an infant to Earth in a ship at the same time that Kal-L's ship was launched. She arrived on Earth decades later than Clark, having aged into a woman in her twenties and having lived so far in a virtual reality the ships computer ran.
Her cousin Clark and his wife Lois provided her with a family environment that aided her transition from the virtual reality she had experienced during her voyage to real life relationships. She came to regard her cousin and his wife as her "uncle" and "aunt" for raising her on Earth-Two despite being cousins by blood and marriage. Lois Lane-Kent stated that they regarded her as their daughter.
Power Girl took her cousin's place in the Justice Society of America after he entered into semi-retirement to focus on his personal life. Eventually, when the Crisis happened and Power Girl's original universe was destroyed, Power Girl herself lived through the destruction and lived in the newly created world, and continued to act as a superhero.

Christmas Recommendation: The Klaus Universe by Grant Morrison and Dan Mora

Given it's the perfect time for it, I'd like to discuss the re-imagining of Santa Claus as a superhero, published by BOOM! Studios. If you're reading the current Once and Future series, you're likely familiar with Dan Mora's work. But he really came to attention with the 2015 Klaus mini-series with Grant Morrison. And ever since that original mini, they've maintained an annual tradition. Every year, in December, in the holiday season, around Christmas, a new Klaus one-shot drops. They're usually up to 50 pages (although this year's is shorter, but more on that later) and are great one-and-done stories which have recurring elements and expand upon the crazy world this Santa inhabits. If you enjoy Mora or Morrison, they're a lovely purchase that are a load of fun and perfect for the season.
The basic concept of the whole enterprise is simple, as described above: Santa as a superhero. So what you get is a wild, weird and accessible Morrisonian spin on folklore and myth, brought to life by Mora's art, alongside letterer Ed Dukeshire. Klaus is somewhat of a cross between Superman, Batman and Doctor Who. And he's absolutely a superhero. So, you have the old man re-imagined by Mora as a sexy beefcake hero who's hot and never ages. And he has Lilli, The Super-Wolf, who's like his Krypto The Super-dog. He has his Cosmic Sleigh, which is his Bat-Mobile. His Workshops are his Bat-Caves/Fortresses Of Solitude. He has a wild history as a hero, having fought in World War II like Captain America and having been around for centuries. He's been a mentor to many, having taken on many apprentices, including but not limited to Geppetto, the creator of Pinocchio. He had a sidekick who grew up, much like Robin/Dick Grayson or Bucky Barnes. He has his own super-team, his own Justice League or The Avengers, in the form of The League Of Santas. They're like the International Batmen crossed with the classic superheroic archetypes, with members like, but not limited to Grandfather Frost, Snowmaiden, Father Christmas, Sinterklaas and more. He has his own, wild, weird rogues gallery across the ages, like Anti-Klaus from The Underworld, who's effectively his Earth-3/Anti-Matter counterpart, The Ultraman/Owlman to his Superman/Batman and The Krampus, who's basically his Joker and there's plenty more. His world has its own wild cosmology and mythology, from Lunarlopolis to The Mars-Bubbles and Animatropolis of Titan. There's space automatons and cosmic clocks of the universe, there's mythic aliens, higher dimensional entities, Thought-Metals and a whole host of stuff. It's really imaginative and fun. It's a proper universe of superheroic adventure and tradition, which you slowly get to learn more about and engage with.

The Stories

Klaus #1-7- The Origin

This is the Year One or Birthright or Secret Origin, basically. It's the birth of the hero, the inception. Klaus is a wild man in 1600's Europe and he arrives to a settlement called Grimsvig, which is a totalitarian town run by a tyrant Baron. So what you get is a sort of Robin Hood-esque spin of the hero, as he strikes against the powerful and cruel by bringing joy and gifts to the poor. And you have him be hunted and he's very Batman-esque as he perches on rooftops, flees authority and almost has his own Jim Gordon in his version of Gotham. It's the story of man becoming myth and it's very much taking the sort of image of the 'brutal, badass, barbarian' and subverting it, by having him not be a brooding, cold jerk, but a gentle, kind, grinning hero. Klaus is a story of a man who has every reason to be angry and vengeful, but never is and his narrative is never framed as such. He's like The Doctor. He's just...kind. He helps however he can and he's selfless as all get out. He's the loving, forgiving, caring father figure, he's the best parts of Morrison's Batman and Superman, with more than a dash of The Doctor.

Klaus and The Witch Of Winter #1- The Rebirth

This is sort of the 'revival', 'return' or 'rebirth', if you will. Doctor Who is an obvious and massive influence here and so Morrison does the classic conceit of the revamp here, which is a similarity of both DW and superhero comics. And so you get the hero having been missing for a while and now he's finally back and resettling, kicking things off again. He's a man who's been through something and has to re-acclimate. Much like The Doctor and The Time War, Klaus has The Lunar War. He's been away in the war on the moon, a civil war, which lasted decades. We're not quite sure what happened, as hints are dropped and teases are thrown out. Whatever happened was big and it was the final standoff of The League Of Santas and Klaus. This thread of 'What really happened in The Lunar War?' is, much like in Who, a recurring mystery and thread through the stories.
This really establishes Klaus in the modern day, laying out his new status quo and has him taking stock of some of the changes that have occurred in his absence. It's basically a 'modern' relaunch of the character. And like all Klaus stories, ultimately it is about warmth in the cold and being emotional, vulnerable, kind rather than cold or detached. Klaus is a positive role model figure that helps young people be the best they can be.

Klaus and The Crisis in Xmasville #1- The Crisis

The epic, cosmic time of change, where opposites meet and clash! This takes us back to the 80's and is a bit of a period piece, focusing on the consumerism of that era. The Coca Cola Corporation Pola Cola Corporation are a recurring foe of Klaus and he's faced them in the 30's, back when they tried to 'own' Christmas and the concept of 'Santa'. You don't turn the man into an IP! There was an epic siege, a war that waged for days! And Klaus won. Now, the Pola Cola Corporation's back and want to own Christmas for good. And this time, they intend to make their own Corporate Santa, who dresses in blue and prints money for shareholders. And they want to make it be Christmas all year long, so they can maximize profit! And they do it by forming an alliance with The Anti-Klaus Of The Underworld. If Klaus is a gift-giver, Anti-Klaus is a gift-taker. If Klaus is selfless, Anti-Klaus is selfish. He's like Lobo Santa, with a brutal heavy metal Cosmic Bike instead of a Sleigh. And so you get the one man against the greedy corporation, multiversal doppelgangers that embody capitalism and more. It's the idea of 'Crisis' done-in-one. Mora also always evolves and tries new stuff on the series and in this one, he opts for water-colors and it looks gorgeous. Mora getting to color himself is one of the biggest draws of the whole enterprise, really.
This one's about the other key aspect of Santa: Imagination and specifically the imagination of children. The power of that, the need for that, in the face of a world that is stagnant and wants you to just be another gear in a profit-making machine.

Klaus and The Crying Snowman #1- The Ragnarok

The epic apocalypse, the end of days. Or so it seems. Tackling norse myth, dropping more hints as to what really happened in the past, Morrison basically does an 'everything is canon' approach to Santa, to create a rich texture for the hero. He's fought Pola Cola in the 30's, he faced The Martians in the 60's (because of the movie), he fought The Anti-Klaus in the 80's and more, we get a wild sense of the timeline that makes up this alternate history of gift-giving heroes. But past that, Morrison brings the story back to modern day and sheds some light on why an immortal hero has aged and it's about the return of The Nightborn, the cosmic horde from the Ragnarok myths, whom Thor and the gods faced.
In the end, it's a story about how even the ultimate ends don't have to be, so long as we can learn from the past, be better and move forward. It approaches this great cosmic tale through the perspective of a snowman and it's ultimately a story of fathers and sons. Also, Klaus here looks like Chris Hemsworth Thor, because Mora rules. Here, the other central element of the Santa is emphasized. The Santa forgives. He's compassionate. He offers second chances. He's a man of great power, who regularly chooses to do nice things, just because he can.

Klaus and The Life and Times Of Joe Christmas #1- The Legacy

The great legacy story. The whole lifetime of Klaus' sidekick, Joe Christmas and his relationship to his mentofather figure/older brothebest friend. Joe ages and changes, as Klaus stays ever the same. It's a bit of Up, as you see a whole life, its ups and downs and see what the Santa means to this one young man, who becomes not so young with time. It's shorter than the usual 50-page one-shots, but is a big wide-screen calender issue, laid out as a silent comic with each page as a big splash image. It's a fun experiment, with a unique structure, that tells a story through a series of big pictures, which you assemble into a larger meaning and the more you notice in each, the more you understand. It also operates as a pseudo-history of the universe, but through a singular perspective. It's a great deal of fun and it's a celebration of the sidekick hero. Also, you have Tiger, the size-shifting super-cat with an eye-patch. He looks like Nick Fury, if he were a cat that could size-shift. He's a member of The Legion Of Santa-Pets.

The Collections

Klaus: How Santa Claus Began- Collects Klaus #1-7

Amazon | Comixology | Book Depository

Klaus: The New Adventures Of Santa Claus- Collects Klaus and The Witch Of Winter #1 and Klaus and The Crisis In Xmasville #1

Amazon | Comixology | Book Depository
Currently Crying Snowman #1 and The Life and Times Of Joe Christmas #1 remain uncollected, but they're two of the best stories, so if you can grab them, definitely do so! A lot of these are being offered at a discount at the moment on Comixology due to Christmas deals, so if you'd like to, now is a perfect time to get a lot of these.
But yeah, this whole enterprise is basically a creator owned superhero universe based around Christmas mythology. It's Morrison doing to larger folklore and myth what he did to and for DC mythology. And it's one that expands every year and is really sentimental, sweet, heartwarming and hits all the spots you want a great Superman or Doctor Who story to hit, with the sheer coolness of the Batworld. It's a huge cosmic universe designed by and brought to life by Dan Mora and is his most personal work and the sort of closest comparisons to this would be Mignola's Hellboy or Lemire's Hammerverse, in terms of what they are for the creators, I think. It's a nice lovely world with a cool cast of characters, tons of mysteries, a vast history with potential for stories of any kind in any time or place. It's Santa as a cool cosmic superhero, riding a sleigh pulled by wolves. I recommend checking it out.

Superman #48 - Apokolips

Superman #48 - Apokolips

<< | < | >
Author: MajorParadox
Book: Superman
Arc: Teammates
Set: 48

Separated

Apokolips
Clark flew out of the portal behind Orion. The hologram Orion showed him didn’t do the place justice. The smell of oil and grime filled the air. Heat from several fire pits radiated across the land. Sounds of metal grinding, cries, and some odd screeching was too much to bear. It was called Apokolips but Clark wondered if “Hell” was a better name.
The screeching intensified as Clark watched the sky fill up with swarms of creatures, all heading their way. He recognized them from the hologram too.
“Parademons,” said Orion. “A genetically engineered army, loyal to Darkseid.”
“Well that sounds terrifying,” said Clark. Of course they had “demons” in their name. It gave more stock to think of Apokolips as Hell.
As the first wave hit them, Clark blew his freeze breath in their direction, which threw them off course. But a few shot forward, clawing and punching as they reached.
Clark returned with punches of his own. He looked over to Orion, who was shooting blasts at them with his flying harness apparatus.
“I told you this wouldn’t be peaceful,” said Orion, grabbing two more parademons and tossing them toward more incoming.
More and more filled the area around until Clark and Orion were broken apart.
Clark took out droves of parademons as he flew in super-spurts. Targeted heat vision blasts knocked out some of their wings, leaving them to fall to the ground. It was becoming increasingly more difficult to keep them at bay.
One of them sliced their wings across Clark’s chest. If he had been human, it would have cut him in half. He fought more of them off, but others pulled him down by his arms until they crashed down.
Clark shot up, clobbering his way through them. A loud grunt echoed over the area, cutting through the shrieking of the parademons. And they stopped. The parademons dispersed, flying away and revealing a hairy beast who was staring Clark down.
“I could smell you as soon as you got here,” the beast said.
“And who are you?” asked Clark. But he already had a feeling. Dan Turpin described a monster just like him that tore through the SCU (see Superman #46).
“My name is Kalbak,” he answered, his voice deep.
“Kalibak,” Clark repeated. It was him. “You and I have to talk.”
Elsewhere on Apokolips
Orion stood over a pile of fallen parademons, holding two of them in his hands and slamming their heads together. The others in the air began flying off to the side as someone in a pinkish robe came walking toward him.
The man had greasy, black hair and a devilish smirk. “Orion,” he said. “What is the meaning of this intrusion?”
“DeSaad, you traitor," Orion answered. "You know as well as Darkseid that Earth is off limits. You are in violation of your treaty with New Genesis. I have brought the one known as Superman as a representative to put an end to that violation.”
"Traitor?” DeSaad spat again. “All of those on New Genesis know of Darkseid's Truth in their hearts. He simply opened mine earlier than most. And you dare speak of broken treaties, when the metal one and his companies have invaded Apokolips?"
“What in Highfather’s name are you talking about, DeSaad?”
DeSaad stepped closer. “Lord Darkseid cares not about your trivial interest in that irritating planet. You should leave before you regret your move.”
Orion looked off to the right to find Superman trading punches with Kalibak and then he grabbed DeSaad by his chest. “How about we let Darkseid speak for himself?”

Confrontations

“You came into my world,” said Clark, watching Orion fly off with a man in a purplish robe. “You killed innocent people.”
Orion was headed toward a large circular structure near the edge of the city or whatever they called such places on Apokolips.
“There is no such thing as innocence,” said Kalbak as he leapt toward Clark and threw a punch, knocking him against a large, metal barrier.
The structure Orion was headed toward looked far more maintainted than anything around it. Chances are that was where Darkseid lived.
Clark flew back up and wound up his fist, but Kalkab grabbed his arm out of air and swung him into the ground.
“Life and death go hand in hand, Superman,” Kalbak continued, leaning down to wrap his arms around Clark’s neck. “If something lives, it must kill and lose its innocence.”
Clark struggled against the beast’s tightened grip. “That’s pretty naive thinking,” he said, pushing harder and harder until he broke free. He turned around and zoomed forward, ramming the large monster with his shoulder. Clark lifted up the hulking behemoth, but several parademons came flying down toward him, clawing at him until he loosened his grip.
Kalibak jumped up and slammed Clark back down. “You call me naive?” he said. “You came to Apokolips thinking you stand a chance.” He kicked the superhero in the stomach and threw an uppercut that launched him into a group of parademons on the side.
The parademons clawed and scraped their wings against Clark as Kalibak walked toward them slowly.
“What was your plan, Superman?” he asked. “Come to Apokolips and wage a war against us? If Darkseid wanted, he could wipe out your entire planet. Or was this personal? Revenge against me for killing the so-called innocents?”
No, that wasn’t it at all. Clark’s mission was to end this peacefully before it started. But the more he learned about Apokolips told him “peace” wasn’t on the table. Besides, Kalibak was a murderer.
“I wasn’t here for you,” said Clark, shoving away the parademons. “But since you’re here...”
Darkseid’s Thone
Orion entered Darkseid’s palace, DeSaad running up behind him.
“Forgive me, Great Darkseid,” said DeSaad. “I tried to stop him.”
Darkseid towered over the two. “It’s no surprise,” he said. “You are worthless to me. Why are you here, Orion?”
“Highfather sent me,” said Orion. “You are in violation of your treaty with New Genesis.”
“You dare-!” DeSaad cried out, but Orion backhanded him across the room.
Darkseid didn’t even react to the assault. “And you invaded Apokolips with your crew of Earth people,” he retorted.
“What does that mean?” asked Orion. “I brought Superman with me to confront your transgressions.”
“I think he means me,” a voice called as he stepped into the room. “Hi, I’m Cyborg.”
“How did you get free?!” DeSaad yelled from the other side of the room.
Cyborg lifted his arm and fired a blast, knocking the servant back again. “Like that,” he said.
“More aggression,” Darkseid mused.
“You’re one to talk,” said Clark as he flew in carrying an unconscious Kalibak. “We were attacked the moment we got here.” He dropped Kalibak at Darkseid’s feet. “And you’ve been sending weapons to my planet, responsible for the death of countless people. I-” Clark stopped as he noticed who else was in the room. “Cyborg? What are you doing here?”
Was he kidnapped? DeSaad said something about getting free.
“It’s a long story,” said Cyborg. “Intergang-” (See Cyborg #10 for that story.)
“Enough,” Darkseid interrupted, waving his hand. A horde of parademons flew into the room, pulling Cyborg and Orion outside. “You wanted to confront me, Superman. Here I am.”
“Keep your word with New Genesis,” Clark said, crossing his arms. “Stay away from Earth.”
Darkseid’s eyes glowed in a neon-red, flames rising out of them. Without saying a word, a sharp angular beam shot out moving in zigzag pattern until it reached Clark.
The pain was intense and Clark was thrown backwards, slamming into the wall. The beam was so strong it left a hole in his uniform.
“Let me be clear,” said Darkseid, moving toward the fallen Man of Steel. He shot off another blast as Clark struggled to his feet. “You do not give me orders.”
Clark shot up and threw a fist, but Darkseid caught it in his hand, crushing it slowly. “Arghh!” Clark cried.
Darkseid dropped his own fist onto Clark’s head, knocking him back down. “New Genesis does not give orders.” Another blast from his eyes. “I give the orders.”
Clark took a deep breath, and rolled quickly. He grabbed onto a pillar and broke it apart as Darkseid fired another blast, only this time Clark blocked it with the broken pillar. He shoved it forward, hammering Darkseid back as it broke apart against him. Clark rushed forward and threw a punch right into the titan’s stone-like face.
Darkseid shook it off and picked up Clark by his neck, smashing him into the ground. He dropped his foot onto the hero’s head and kicked him back up, punching him again before he landed back down.
Blood dripped down from Clark’s lip. His mind went back to his fight with Doomsday. At least with him, it was just like trying to fight a wild animal. Darkseid was insanely strong while also quick and calculating.
The screeching of the parademons from outside intensified as a swarm came flying inside.
Doomsday didn’t have minions either.
The parademons grabbed hold of Clark, lifting him up as others carried over Orion and Cyborg, lining the three next to each other before Darkseid.
“I believe I made myself clear,” he said. “Earth is a trivial ball of mud and I have no need to concern myself with such matters. New Genesis can do what it pleases, but any further aggression against us will be an act of war.”
“Are you serious?” yelled Cyborg. “You-”
The parademons pulled them away, dropping them outside the door. DeSaad ran outside after them.
“The Master doesn’t wish to waste any more time with you vermin!” he said. “Leave Apokolips immediately.”
Orion pulled himself up as his harness floated over to him. “That went better than I thought it would,” he said, drawing stares from the others. He tapped his Mother Box and it opened up a boom tube.

Home

Metropolis
Clark, Orion, and Cyborg exited the boom tube onto a deserted street in Suicide Slum.
“Do you think that’s the last we’ll see of Darkseid and Apokolips?” asked Clark.
“He had no reason to mislead you,” Orion explained. “But know that doesn’t mean he will never be a problem again.” He tapped the Mother Box again, causing a new boom tube to appear. “I must return to New Genesis and report to them what transpired with Darkseid.”
“Thank you for everything,” said Clark.
“No need to thank me,” said Orion, dropping a small, circular device onto Clark’s hand. “But you can use this to call me if you need my help again.”
“We didn’t really get to meet,” said Cyborg. “I’m Cyborg. But you can call me Vic.”
“I’m called Orion,” he replied as he disappeared into the boom tube and it closed up, leaving Clark and Cyborg alone.
“So, Vic,” said Clark. “How did you end up there?”
“I was following a lead on some drug traffickers,” Vic answered. “That led me to a warehouse. They opened one of those rifts in the air, so I followed them through.”
“So, are they...?”
Cyborg nodded.
There was more to what happened, but it wasn’t the right time. The League needed to know everything that happened.
“Listen,” said Clark. “How would you like to come to a Justice League meeting?”
Later
Clark landed on his apartment balcony. It was good to be home. Back home in Metropolis. On Earth. It would take a while to get the images of Apokolips out of his head, but there was nothing better than hearing the sounds of his family inside. He opened the door to Krypto jumping on him. “Hi, boy,” he said, patting the dog on the head.
“Clark?” asked Lois as she rushed over, feeling through the tears in his suits. “Is that blood? What happened?”
“An alien overlord named Darkseid beat me up,” Clark answered. “But I’m okay.”
“Daddy,” said Jon from his playpen, his arms extended up.
“Did he just-?” Clark dropped down to Jon and picked him up, looking down at his face. “Did you just-?”
“Daddy,” Jon said again.
“He was saying it all day,” said Lois. “I was trying to teach him ‘Mommy’, too, but-”
“Mommy,” Jon said, extending his arms toward his mother.
“Oh, I see how it is,” Clark teased as Lois took the baby, smiling wide.
“Daddy,” Jon said yet again, reaching back for him.

Set: 47

The Big Meeting

Metropolis
Morning
Clark woke up with a smile. Not just any regular smile. It was a big day. And he couldn’t wait.
There was a lot to be worried about. The SCU attack, the mayor’s assisnation, and even Lex Luthor announcing his run for president. But, Clark knew if you focus on the bad, you have a hard time seeing the good.
“‘Mornin’, Smallville,” said Lois, stretching herself awake. “Today’s the day,” she continued. “You couldn’t hide your excitement if you tried.”
“Mama Dada doggy,” said Jon from his bedroom.
Clark shot out of bed and leaned over to kiss Lois on the forehead. “I’ll go make the coffee,” he said, walking out the door to Jon’s room.
Krypto was inside the crib with Jon, standing next to him.
“Krypto,” Clark called. “Thought I told you not to go in there.” The dog flew out and circled Clark until he patted him on the head. “Good morning, Jon,” he said.
“Ga mon,” Jon repeated.
Clark lifted up his son as Krypto flew across the apartment, into the kitchen, back through the living room and then into the bedroom.
“Okay, boy,” said Lois. She was pushing him down as he tried to jump up to her face. When she got to Jon’s room, the dog was flying circles around her. “I think he needs a walk. Or, you know, a fly.”
🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕
Clark flew over the Metropolis skyline, Krypto following right along. “It’s been a while since we flew together, huh?” he asked.
Krypto pushed on ahead and dove down.
“Where are you going?” Clark asked as he followed along.
The dog barked and flew down toward the warehouse where the SCU was attacked (see last issue).
Krypto flew over the police tape into the empty warehouse, sniffing all over.
“Smell something?” asked Clark, but the dog just tiled his head sideways. “Can you smell that monster?” If he could, that could be the break they needed.
Since Intergang was taken down, and whatever it was that attacked the SCU, there hadn’t been any activity they could find. If Krypto could pick up a scent, maybe it could lead to something they were missing?
Krypto flew back out of the warehouse and back up into the sky.
Clark looked up high, breaking through the atmosphere with his supervision until the Justice League satellite came into view. He didn’t have a lot of time. But if Krypto could find something?
“Watchtower,” said Clark after tapping his belt. “This is Superman. You might have to get started without me.”
Watchtower
Late Afternoon
Clark entered the airlock of the satellite and the sounds of a crowd filled his ears. He was late, but still excited. Hearing them all in there just added to it. The Justice League finally grew its ranks.
As soon as Clark entered the door to the main hall, the room quieted. Tables were set up, filled with buffets of assorted food. Kara, Chloe, Bruce, Diana, and Cassie stood together opposite Hal and his newest Green Lantern associate John Stewart. Barry was sitting with Booster, J’onn, and Ted Kord, also known as the Blue Beetle. Over by the pizza table was Barbara and Dick along with Barbara’s teammates known as Black Canary and Huntress.
“Sorry, I’m late,” said Clark.
“You’re Superman, you can be late” said Booster, with a pair of finger guns. “You’re the superhero!”
“We’re all superheroes here,” said Clark, patting him on the back.
“Any luck?” asked Bruce.
Clark shook his head. “Krypto seemed to pick up a trail, but it was a dead end.” He looked around again to find eyes still on him. “Oh, um, should we get started?”
Bruce moved toward a large set of doors. “Let’s move this to the conference room,” he said.
Everyone walked into the next room to find a large, round table in the center. Glass walls on the other side of it created a breathtaking view of Earth below.
Dick chuckled as he brushed his hand against the table. “Just like the Knights of Roundtable, huh?” he said.
An alarm began blaring, red lights filling the room.
“Is this it?” asked Ted. “Is Earth already under attack?!”
Chloe sat down and tapped a button on the table, opening up a compartment that revealed a translucent screen and keyboard. She pressed a few quick buttons and then swiped up rapidly. A large jumbotron came out the ceiling, displaying the same image visible from any side of the table. It showed a feed outside the airlock and Krypto was clawing at the door.
“He must have followed me up here,” said Clark, dropping his head into his hands.
Chloe couldn’t help but laugh and touched another button. “Might as well let the good boy inside,” she said.
Krypto barked as he entered the base. He flew into the conference room, drawing a crowd of the younger heroes, anxious to have a turn to pet him.
“He’s in heaven,” said Diana as the dog rolled over for a belly rub.
“Cool,” said Cassie, looking over to Chloe’s chair. A silhouette of a tower appeared at the top of the headrest. “What is it?”
“I hope I’m not stealing from any speeches,” Chloe started. “But they named this base after me. The logo is ‘The Watchtower.’” She motioned over to the seat next to her.
Cassie sat down and then turned around to look at her headrest. It showed her Wonder Girl logo.
Clark smiled and turned to the others. “Everyone, please have a seat.”
Later
Sixteen of the seventeen chairs around the round table were filled, each one with their logo above their heads. Aquaman couldn’t be there, unfortunately. But at least he wasn’t missing anymore.
“Thank you everyone for joining us today,” said Clark as Krypto laid down at his feet. “Three years ago, this ‘league’ started as a conversation between Wonder Woman, Batman, and myself. We met more heroes along the way and grew. Today, I’m proud to say we grew again.”
“Welcome to the Justice League,” said Diana. “And welcome to the Watchtower.”
“Everyone here now has access to Justice League resources,” Bruce explained. “That includes this very tower and its supercomputers. We have a network of shared resources to keep us up-to-date on existing threats.”
Booster raised his hand. “The password isn’t ‘batword,’ is it?”
Bruce didn’t even acknowledge the joke. Instead, he continued. “While all members here have access, only a few are inducted as ‘core’ members. The rest are part of our ‘extended’ team.”
“That doesn’t make you any less valued,” Diana added.
“Right,” Clark agreed. “Even before we expanded our ranks, many of you have answered the call when it was needed. The dome, Doomsday, Zod… As far as I’m concerned you were always on the team. We are solidifying that partnership and making sure we have a process for working together again if the need arises.”
“That said,” Bruce continued. “The new core team consists of me, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman- who couldn’t be here today- the two Green Lanterns, Martian Manhunter, Power Girl, Booster Gold, and of course, the new bases’ namesake, Watchtower herself.”
Chloe waved at the end there.
Bruce nodded. “And the extended team consists of Nightwing, Batgirl, Black Canary, Huntress, Wonder Girl, and Blue Beetle.”
Barbara waved, but put her hand down when none of the others in her group did.
And then Chloe waved back to her anyway.
Clark smiled at the exchange. “Any questions?” he asked.
Booster raised his hand.
Clark shook his head, almost laughing. “We’re not in school, ask away.”
“Can we bring food in here?” Booster asked, gauging Bruce’s reaction first. “I mean, even during meetings we might get hungry.”
“Finish your pizza,” said Bruce, his voice as dry as ever. “It’s a table.”
Whew,” said Booster, lifting a slice of pizza he was hiding under the table. He took a big bite and some cheese slid off.
“You couldn’t use a plate?” Ted asked, playfully punching his shoulder.
“Any non-food related questions?” Clark asked.
Black Canary started raising her hand, but then let it drop. “We’re here to work together,” she spoke up. “And share information, right? So, does anyone have anything to share?”
“Good question,” said Clark. “I hope you don’t mind if I go first?”
Everyone at the table nodded.
“Of course,” said Diana. “Share.”
“There is a threat out there,” Clark started. “We’re not quite sure what it is yet, but they’ve been funneling super advanced weapons into Metropolis for over a year.”
“Intergang,” Barry added.
“Right,” Clark confirmed. “Luckily Intergang was taken out, but the source of the weapons seems to be somewhere… not of this planet. Someone- or something- came through a portal and attacked the Special Crimes Unit.”
“What happened to it?” Dick asked. “The ‘thing’?”
“Gone,” said Bruce. “No reports of anything like it since.”
“We have patrols set up at all former weapon drops,” Clark explained. “But there hasn’t been any activity since Intergang went down. Now that we have our new base and expanded team, I’d like us to keep a close watch on it. We don’t want to be taken off guard if there’s another attack.”
“Agreed,” said Barry, others joining in his approval. “I’ll be watching a fair bit of them regularly, but this is a team effort.”
“I’ve sent more details to each of your terminals,” said Bruce, tapping the table in front of him, activating his own.
Others activated their own, looking over the data packets Batman sent them.
“Anyone else have anything to share?” Clark asked.
Booster raised his hand again, but spoke up anyway. “Not right now, because we already have it. But, if we wanted to order pizza up here, would the delivery person be able to use the transporters?”

On Watch

Watchtower
Night
Chloe and Barbara sat at a large control station in the tower. It was late, but they had signed up for a night shift. And it was kind of boring. They had a monitor set up, playing reruns of The Office.
Chloe sighed. “Next time, remind me to bring some pajamas and we’ll make it a slumber party.”
Barbara pulled off her Batgirl mask. “It’s just us here,” she said. “Pretend I’m in Batgirl PJs.”
Chloe laughed. “Pretend I’m wearing my Wonder Woman PJs then.”
An alert popped up on the main monitor, zeroing in a location on a map.
“We got a hit on an energy signature in Detroit,” said Chloe. “Looks like-”
The alert deactivated.
“What happened?” asked Barabara.
Chloe typed away. “False alarm, apparently.” She flipped up the volume on the TV, but an ad was playing with Lex Luthor.
“-calling it ‘Watchtower’,” said Lex. “They would have you believe it’s a measure to keep the world safe, but they don’t want you to remember that the maniacal killer known as ‘The Joker’ easily hijacked it while it was being built. Did they make the world safer or just create a new threat for the future? We need a president that-”
“Luthor can’t actually win, can he?” asked Barabara.
“Crazier things have happened,” Chloe shrugged. “Hopefully-”
Another alert popped up.
Chloe’s eyes popped open. “We’re going to have to wake up Superman,” she said. “He’s going to want to check this out himself.”

The Threat

Metropolis
Night
Clark flew down to the door of the Special Crimes Unit building. The league was alerted to another reported portal. This time a man in a red suit came through. He was flying in some sort of golden contraption.
Did he come from the same place as the monster that attacked the SCU? If so, it was a good sign he surrendered to their custody. But he specifically stated he wanted to talk to Superman.
Just as well, Clark wanted to talk to him too. Finally, there may be some answers.
“Superman!” Maggie Sawyer called from down the hall.
Clark sped forward, stopping right in front of her. “Has he said anything yet?” he asked.
“Only that his name is Orion,” she answered. “And that he won’t talk to anyone but you.”
Before he even opened the door to the interrogation room, Clark watched as Dan Turpin drilled Orion with questions, the two sitting on opposite sides of the table.
“You see this?” said Dan, pointing to his arm, which was suspended in a sling. “Somebody coming from a yellow tunnel assaulted and killed several members of my team. You came through a tunnel just like that.”
“I said I’d talk to Superman,” said Orion. “You’re not Superman!”
“No, but I am,” said Clark as he entered. “Orion, right? Take it easy and start talking, please.”
“Superman!” yelled Orion, jumping to his feet. “I came here to warn you, not be treated like an enemy, let alone be told to take it easy!
“If you know who Superman is,” said Turpin. “You’d know to lose the attitude!”
Clark lifted his arm. “It’s okay, Dan,” he said. “Let him talk. Warn me about what?”
“Darkseid.”
Clark looked to Dan who shrugged. “What’s that?”
“You don’t know Darkseid?” asked Orion. “Apokolips?” After he got more blank stares, he lifted his arm.
“What are you doing?” asked Clark.
“I need Mother Box,” said Orion. A golden apparatus, that looked like a jet pack, floated over to the door. Orion walked up to it, pulling a rectangular box from its shoulder straps. “She will show you what you need to know.” He pointed it to the wall and began to make a pinging sound as a hologram projected outwards.
“Long ago,” a female voice began narrating as a picture of two plantoid figures appeared. “In the days of the Old Gods, New Genesis and Apokolips were formed. Both evolved as extremes to each other.”
One of the figures reshaped into a lively, green and blue planet. The other a metallic, death star-looking ball with flames shooting out from several spots.
“New Genesis, a paradise of sorts, beautiful is an understatement.”
The hologram showed gorgeous mountains and green grass followed by remarkable alien buildings. It moved to a floating city, zooming in on a man with a large white beard.
“Ruled by the powerful Highfather,” Mother Box continued. “If New Genesis was Earth’s understanding of Heaven, Apokolips would be Hell.”
The view changed to a filthy planet, filled with fire pits and flying, bug-like creatures. Droves of people in chains were shuffled along by menacing monsters. The view ended on a large, hulking beast. His grayish skin had cracks in it, like stone.
“Ruled by Darkseid, he feeds on the misery and despair of his subjects.”
Clark clenched his fists.
“At war for ages, New Genesis and Apokolips have reached some uneasy treaties over the years. The most important of which involves Earth. New Genesis has long ago declared Earth off limits to Apokolips, an attack on it would be an attack on them. It has kept Darkseid from invading your world. But his ultimate mission always involved conquering and ridding the universe of free will. Treaties will only hold that back for so long as it’s convenient.”
The hologram disappeared.
Orion placed Mother Box back on his harness. “Darkseid has been taking a new interest in this planet,” he explained. “Funneling Apokoliptian weapons to add more chaos.”
So, finally a name behind the source. Darkseid.
“Wouldn’t that be a violation of the treaty?” asked Clark.
“I’m sure you understand, Superman,” Orion explained. “There’s a reason it’s considered ‘uneasy’. Darkseid pushes the limits, probably even considers his arrangement within the confines of the agreement. But then his… son, Kalibak came to Earth. He must be the one this peacekeeper of yours was talking about.”
“Okay,” said Superman. “So, you represent New Genesis and they are on our side?”
“Correct,” Orion agreed. “Highfather tasked me with finding a representative of Earth to bring to Apokolips and demand Darkseid respect the treaty. The name Superman is known even in our parts, so we believe you should be that representative. Any more people and he will take that as an act of aggression against him, giving him an excuse to invade.”
Clark nodded. “I see,” he said.
“If I could,” said Dan. “I’d go and give that ‘Darkseid’ goon a piece of my mind.”
“This is good,” said Clark. “A chance to end this threat through peaceful means. We can’t miss this opportunity.”
Orion lifted his harness and pulled it over his shoulders, walking toward the exit, Superman following behind.
“Knowing Darkseid,” said Orion. “It may not be as ‘peaceful’ as you think.” Once they got outside, he tapped Mother Box and lightning exploded out of the sky as a circular, yellow vortex appeared. His harness flew him into it and they disappeared.
Clark followed.

/r/DCcomics now has flairs + Flair requests + Community News

What's new, Pussycat?

Well for a few months now, both myself and MajorParadox have been working behind the scenes to give /DCcomics a graphical facelift. You can see some of the new additions in the sidebar as well as new vote icons (we have lots more ready to go that will please/anger everyone lol) and fun sub-Reddit logos too.
We have also been busy expanding the /DCcomics network too. With established links to /Batman and /Superman, we now have moderators working on subs such as:
We hope to expand into more soon so we can help provide a wider and concise platform for all DC Comics fans, so make sure to check out those communities.

We have flairs now!

Well we've always had flairs on /DCcomics but previously only on the old version of Reddit, but now using the Reddit emoji system we have user flairs that will work on the Redesign of the website as well as supported mobile versions of Reddit too.
It's important to note that if you are not a user of the Redesign or the app and prefer old Reddit, you get the best of both worlds in that you can pick the new emoji-based flairs but also keep using the classic flair bot system (which you can access here), both of them are compatible with Old Reddit, however the old flair bot flairs are not compatible with Redesign or the mobile versions of Reddit or we wouldn't have gone through this effort in the first place.
In order to enable your flair just follow these instructions for each platform:
Reddit Redesign
  1. On the right handside, in the sidebar, you'll find a "community options" selection. Clicking on that will expand the menu and show you a "user flair preview" and all you need to do is click on the small pencil.
  2. This will bring up the new flairs in a scrolling menu, the next part is to find one you like and select it, and you will be given the option to change the text. Once you have done so, click apply. It's that easy!
Old Reddit
  1. In the sidebar for old Reddit you'll see two flair related menus, the one that says "Click here to assign user flair" will take you to our old Reddit flairs, but for the new flairs you'll want to click the word "edit" above that where it previews what your flair looks like on the sub.
  2. Once you have clicked it, the flair menu will open up, all you have to do is select one you like and you'll be given the option to edit the text. It's important here to not edit the flair text or the emoji WILL NOT APPEAR. The flair text is a word that is sandwiched between two colons (such as :Batman:). Upon editing your main body of text the emoji will seemingly disappear but DON'T WORRY, it's not deleted, it will appear once you hit the save button!
The official Reddit App
  1. Once you're on the DCcomics front page you should tap on the 3 dots in the top right hand corner of your screen, and this will bring up another menu. From here, simply tap "Change user flair".
  2. This will give you access to the emoji menu, from here you can either apply a new flair but if you want to edit the text make sure you click "edit" in the top right hand corner, and you will be taken to a new page where you can edit the text. It's important that you do not edit the emoji text if you want the picture to appear in your flair, the text for it is in between two colons (for example :WonderWoman:), but once you've done so just tap save and your flair will be ready to go.
If you use the mobile version of Reddit via Chrome or another mobile browser on your phone or tablet, you will need to use the desktop version of the website (which is accessible via mobile) in order to access the flair menu or install the official app. So far these are the only 3 ways in which you can change your user flair on Reddit.

Unlike some sub-Reddits we are allowing you the option to edit your text, include a funny message or a quote from the newest issue of The Flash if you choose, but do note that we still expect you to follow the rules about respect and decency on this sub and if we find your flair breaks those rules on any level we reserve the right to remove your flair (yep, we can do that).

Why it has taken so long to do

Laziness.
This is a long explanation but basically the Reddit Redesign has a standard size for "emojis" (which is just the new term for images in user flairs) that are larger than the size we have been using as a standard in our flair bot system for years now. This meant that exporting them from old Reddit to new Reddit, while possible, made them look absolutely terrible and bad quality, so we've had to source and create brand new images for the community. To date we've made almost 200, and we've even had help from NomadicJaguar64t who supplied some awesome New God images to use.
And that leads me to the next part.....

We need your help!

While we have sourced a lot of great images and created some awesome new flairs for the sub, we've not been able to replicate everything from old Reddit and some characters have been difficult to rustle up icons that are distinguishable, so we would like to ask the community for help expanding the flairs we have. It's not easy and there are some conditions to contributing:
Here's a list of characters/groups that could do with help:
These are the core ones i'm a bit sore about not getting done, but maybe you can help us out with that? And if your favourite character is not there, you can drop us a request in this topic.
Thanks for reading this ridiculously long post, we look forward to see your new flairs!

The May Day mystery (part 1)

Sources:
Article , Images , The May Day Mystery Site
"The May Day mystery
Every year since at least the early 1970's, an advertisement is taken out in the Daily Wildcat on May 1 (May Day), and at other seemingly random times during the year, containing cryptic "clues" to some sort of "mystery". The mystery would appear to have its origins in the 1890's."
S: Every year another page of this "May Day" scavenger hunt is released, with the year next to it, ex; MAY DAY 2003.
Each page has some sort of cryptic messages/codes implemented into it
3: Actual page link
The mystery is still going on to this day ( see S: )
1: The people behind this mystery are unknown to date. But there's a strange recurring face seen in some of these pages.
The face appears: see 3, Here , And Here . May Day (Name im gonna refer the mystery to) seems to draw vibes about the Voynich Manuscript. Pages that have weird text and pictures.
Who this person is or is being illustrated as, is unknown. I am not sure how many pages have been cracked (if any have been).
Im gonna make another post on this. For now this is all.

Respect Power Girl (Post-Crisis)

Respect Kara Zor-L, Power Girl

Well, I don't know who you are, mister -- much less why I should listen to you -- but I'll give you one piece of of news and one suggestion... the name is Power Girl: P... O... W... E... R... G... I... R... L -- and the suggestion is that you stay out of my way...
 
After discovering Krypton was about to explode, Kara's father Zor-L launched her as an infant to Earth in a ship at the same time that Kal-L's ship was launched. She arrived on Earth decades later than Clark, having aged into a woman in her twenties and having lived so far in a virtual reality the ships computer ran.
Her cousin Clark and his wife Lois provided her with a family environment that aided her transition from the virtual reality she had experienced during her voyage to real life relationships. She came to regard her cousin and his wife as her "uncle" and "aunt" for raising her on Earth-Two despite being cousins by blood and marriage. Lois Lane-Kent stated that they regarded her as their daughter.
Power Girl took her cousin's place in the Justice Society of America after he entered into semi-retirement to focus on his personal life. Eventually, when the Crisis happened and Power Girl's original universe was destroyed, Power Girl herself lived through the destruction and lived in the newly created world, and continued to act as a superhero.
