  • ok but seriously, don't let this be a one time thing. we just acted like millennials. and we managed to screw them over. their system has been screamed at being faulty for years and we actually proved that EASEILY. WETHER YOU DID IT FOR A MEME, OR BECUASE YOU WERE TRIGGERED, WE JUST MADE A POINT IN HISTORY AND CHALLENGED THEIR BEIGGEST FORM OF CAPTIALISM AND IT WASN'T EVEN HARD! DON'T GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO RECOVER AND MAKE IT HARD!

  • Lesson is: the more free market is (less fees) and the more people find it as best thing to spend time on since they cant work or do otherthings coz covid, the more threatened should be ones, whose making money out of beying big and manipulating. Solo person has large versatility, company has low versatility. Versatility goes up => less plays like gamestop will happen from big companies eventualy.

  • Theory: this is a ploy to make wallstreet richer and millennials and younger poorer What if a syndicate of Wall Street stock traders bought a ton of GameStop shares, due to how cheap they were, at less than $20, then payed influencers on Reddit and other social media to buy GameStop shares to screw with the economy, only to turn a profit of nearly 100 of the amount they put in Why game stop? Well it’s popular and dew or it’s decline, people would take sympathy for the old business. Even then, GameStop won’t last that long after its revival due to lockdowns and the rise of Amazon and other quick online shops There is also some data that shows that someone did start collecting GameStop shares. Between the 11th and 14th of January, the stock price increased from $19.9 to $39.91. Reminder this nearly 2 weeks before the game stop rise to hundreds. Like someone or a group was stockpiling them in preparation. As for the making millennials and younger poorer, when the wallstreets, cash out, what will keep the stock price from deflating? It will lead to them having to buy high and sell low, leading to game stop and the younger generations worst off and wallstreet money men richer Naturally you can call me a paranoid insane conspiracy theorist, but this is just my own 2 sense on the matter. Feel free to bring up any counter arguments in the comments to see if I am missing something huge

  • This is not the Verge’s best work unfortunately. The investment thesis for GME was / is solid. Good YOY growth, shutting underperforming stores, and Ryan Cohen on the board. There was like no mention of how the hedge funds consistently manipulate the market by shorting & putting out hit pieces against the short companies. Just not a good explainer vid
