Something tells me that short sellers are getting their hides taken off with this one. LOL

People never learn do they ? I suspect that all the money to be made in this company has already been pocketed.
I was thinking of buying some put options for when it crashes.

Its up even more today.

Gamestop is one of the best investments out there as far as return.
I think it's a stretch to call Gamestop an investment, at least currently. There are dynamics going on in this stock that make the casino look like a safe alternative.

It's perfectly legal.

They beat the fat cats at their own game and beat em to the punch before the vultures could move in and now the fat cats are pissed.

They shut down NASDAQ. Funny how that happens and the market moderators step in when the little guy beats the vultures to the punch, isn't it?

The other funny thing is that the Wall Street tycoons are calling it manipulation.

I'm thinking....well wait a second...how did you become a Wall Street tycoon again?

Aaaaaw....that's right....manipulation...heh heh. Doing the same thing these guys just did. The exact same thing.

They just beat you to the punch this time.

No doubt the Wall Street tycoons will put a stop to their competition. Like...immediately...and when I say immediately, I'm not talking about that $2,000 piece of cheese kind of immediately that takes months to get to the drones...I mean 'immediately' immediately.

One cat turned $55,000 into $13 million. Heh heh.

Oh boy! The fat cat manipulators have to be pissed they got beat to the punch at their own game.

They might have to start getting up and actually working at this rate. Thus the NASDAQ shutdown, I suppose. They're not having any of that.

They've even gone so far as to monitor people's social media to se who made out. Is that crazy, or what? They did nothing illegal. And they have the right to talk about it.

Man are the vultures pee ohd. Heh heeeee.....

I agree. It was perfectly fine when that asshole Bill Ackerman panicked the market last year and promptly made 1 BILLION on the selling that followed. If the little guys can beat Wall Street at their own game, sounds like America to me.

The flip side of that is we just learned how easy it is for a group of retail traders to effectively overake any company or short seller on the planet.

Historically, the top investment firms do work together to indentify stocks that are ripe for this kind of manipulation and they do capitalize on failing businesses this exact way. It's rather common practice.

But no way they're gonna let the little guy get in the way of that gig, they'll seek some kind of regulation to make sure they're the only ones who can get away with it.

I'll tell you what, though, if more people understood how this game was played, they'd have a much better grasp on the reasons for so many of the Wall Street bailouts and might perhaps start to question them a bit better.

Oh, this was comedy gold within that article...

''Some wondered if it was the result of purposeful market manipulation.

Investor Michael Burry, who previously championed GameStop in 2019, called the current phenomenon “unnatural, insane, and dangerous.”

“What is going on now -- there should be legal and regulatory repercussions,” tweeted Burry, who made his name for his bet against mortgage-backed securities before the 2008 financial crisis.

Burry’s tweet tagged the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement."

Burry deleted that tweet where he said that, btw.

I don't blame the hypocrite. Heh heh.

I expect the whole GameStop thing to come crashing down before Valentine's Day.
