    Hmmm, was hoping to post a rocket emoji, but not seeing one.

    This is fun to watch.

    When something like this becomes global news, you're likely already too late to get in on any "winnings". But who knows...

    So the zombie that is gamestop would have shambled on for a few more years (locations, money in bank, market status... not great long term but not about to have the floor fall out from under them).

    However some chancers on wall street decided to try to cap it before its time (maybe riding in as the heroes after they incited a zombie panic) and enjoy some flesh while it was still good rather than pick the bones when the inevitable happens, invited a few hungry mates with the promise of a slap up meal that in reality was never going to happen but they could at least eat the crows drawn to the party.

    Some jokesters* then called them on their hubris and now the chancers are whining, bitching, pissing and moaning as they realise their hungry mates don't much care where their meal comes from and are closing in fast and they can't let go or be bitten harder still.

    *if we are sharing videos then I like the following



    Love it. Just when I thought the stock market was getting boring again.

    I won't bother making an update to the post until the end of the day since the stock is so volatile. But it's sitting at about $370 only two hours into today.

    It's interesting seeing a mob of "normies" triggering all this activity. Curious what the fall will look like.

    Melvin Capital tapped out :rofl2:. Now expect the worst in the fall (unless there are any other short sellers that are still thinking they have a chance in winning).

    And it ain't over yet! The stock is still heavily shorted.
    The volatility is a direct result of manipulative short trading to drive the price down. I don't know how this isn't being investigated by the SEC. The shorts had the balls to go on live TV and lie about their positions. This is absurd.
    Guys, Gamestop is gonna pay off my student loan :rofl2:

    Yeah, I don't believe the shorts ran away - they're probably just covering their rears lying and hoping wsb gives up and goes home.

    Okay i may not know about stock for crap, but after reading the comments that make sense instead of implying that this was done maliciously, or it's stock manipulation(note: if they did that then they dumb as a sack of potatoes, but i don't think they would, i mean look at all the ps5 orders people tried to do around the release of it - gamestop site crashed down, and people wondered what was going on - now i do believe that might also be the main reason gamestop stock risin up as well) - i rather stick to the fact: i do believe that reggie did help out more then you all think, seriously the man did his job dang well in nintendo of america if you look at his history, he wasn't bad at all managing buisness, i am honestly surprised he got gamestop to fly to the moon lol. Yet glad he did, because yes gamestop has all butt f*cked us in some way - that doesn't erase the matter of it now being the only place to get gaming merch and games, to further add on: it's a place to actually feel that you know what's gonna happen xD.

    Gamestop is like a cruddy home, but it's still good at doing what it can - i don't blame the employees that actually gave a darn dang for their job, and the store, although for those who sat there to complain like a bunch of hoe bags on twitter - joining with the cancel mob were being extremely stupid asf, because now these idiots are going around begging for a job around the time they bailed off gamestop - see the thing that people are *still* not noticing at all, - which baffles me at best here is that gamestop wasn't wrong in keeping open during 'covid' happenings, they were being smart, actually gave a dang for they're worker's - now you may want to know - how?? these bastards clearly just showed they don't care cause they made their employee work in such "bad" conditions. - sigh i agree that payment in gamestop is butt cheek, but the one thing that i saw, i assume other folks have noticed as well is that gamestop does care..- see the logical reason why they kept open around the 'covid' hysteria is because they *knew* about how people were quickly losing they're jobs, they knew that they're employees needed the money to pay their bills instead of being babied by they're governor like it happened unfortunately *smh* - anyway they took the risks because they wanted these ungrateful pack of people to have something to survive, because of how bad money was getting.

    Yet it all was smacked across gamestop face because of cancel culture and whiners who don't notice things until late, now these imbeciles are going around jobless still complaining till this day -_- - and you want me or anyone else to feel bad for those(these) ungrateful/cancel culture people? nah fam i rather support gamestop choice, they were doing a smart thing - too bad nobody noticed it at all because they were to busy raging, and some of those ragers weren't even gamestop customers from what i saw through out the mess rather woke people lol. I was so confused on what the living heck were they even doing, i swear xD.

    - Yes, i know the counter response to what i am stating is that gamestop could have paid them while their employees were at home, --see they were going to do that or gonna do it but since - again people start to become like savages, didn't think at all just quit the jobs - it..never happened, even at that i believe these people would have been fine to come to work for those who were healthy, and not have screw up health conditions that well are weak around the 'covid' thing. - yes, hi i am one of those awake weirdos, here me...idk push a button f*ck am i supposed to type here?

    Finally, i do hope gamestop continues to actually improve and continue to live on because my bum arse don't got no gaming store near me anymore, if you haven't realized those small buisness or if they were big? left, they shut there stores down permanently, the other alternative to gamestop, however, i get the strong sense people will shift it to 'online shopping' unless you live in actual house not apartment go right ahead, yet ya still gonna get mugged lmao especially around this year...annnd the factor of getting screwed over online, not knowing if the item is any good, cause some people do not trust online reviewers even at best - it just, online shopping has a real stinky list. - i rather shop for real not digitally, it takes the fun out of things. - like seeing funny things happened in the store lmao..okay i stop now.

    About time someone toys with Gamestop. They engaged in predatory tactics, acquiring or eclipsing most other nationwide game retailers. Derided as GS is, many cities don't have any other stores that better cater to gaming enthusiasts.

    as much as everyone hates gamestop, I managed to get my animal crossing switch from them, so maybe I don't hate them as much. I had to get the pouch from target iirc, but I got both on launch. :D

    I cashed out at ~$130, literally paid off the rest of my condo and have tens of thousands leftover with this meme stock. The hedge funds are getting squeezed so hard they'll have to cover their position no matter the price so you'll have buyers lined up to take the shares off your hands even if they're overpriced as fuck at $1K.

    Next meme is AMC. If you've got no experience in stock's now's a good time to learn by buying a single share of AMC at $19 and seeing where it goes. If the stock crashes you lose $20 but if it picks up you could be looking at some stupid nice returns and buy yourself a PS5.
