#GameStop #RoaringKitty #KeithGill
“I am not a cat, I am not an institutional investor, nor am I a hedge fund,” Keith Gill (@TheRoaringKitty) tells the House Committee on Financial Services. “I’m just an individual whose investment in GameStop and posts on social media were based on my own research and analysis.”

    Imagine being scrutinized by the House Committee because YOU LIKE A STOCK

      That’s ridiculous, Jim Cramer BSs all the time in the air after he got paid from his clients. Why SEC never go after him? ?

      Imagine being scrutinized by a “house” full of crooked politicians that have probably never made an honest dollar.

      This is what you get, when your degenrated population decides to vote a geriatric deep state puppet into office.

    Where’s my fucking money hedgies

    I wonder how many people bought at 100, 200, 300, 400. The stock is now $40 only and keeps declining. Indeed this dude made a fortune because he bought first at less than $10, called people to get in, and then probably sold it to them at $300+. I hate hedges but also this is insane because many people lost nearly all their money.

    • Darvin Espina Reply

      I don’t think even Gill knew that the price of share would increase substantially. And with the short float percentage past 100% , This was an opportunity that probably wont happen ever again. He had every right to sell and lock in profit

      oXXo That’s how the dice rolls but nobody forced you to play.

      DFV was unaware of the massive squeeze initially. He simply saw that Gamestop was undervalued at around $5 a share. With or without a squeeze, DFV was most likely going to make money. Turns out the stock was absolute money, shorted out the ass and ready for a giga-squeeze that will rarely be seen again in the market. Had trading of the stock not been halted, the stock could’ve potentially broken $1000 a share. There is still short interest and the possibility of another squeeze, but the whole ordeal has dampened its potential.

      @Christian Knight you explained it a lot better than I did lol.

  39. Evan Fernandez Reply

    When you watch his youtube videos, you will see how much research and time he poured on GME. Bro was using value investing and talking about it like how Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham finds value companies, lawmakers should scrutinize how and why hedge funds were able to short the stock more than 100%. Take an elastic band as an analogy, anything that is stretched to the extreme on the other side would slingshot to the opposite direction with almost the same force.

    As long as there’s no insider trading, he’s free to buy any stock at any price with his own money as he wishes. What’s the point of investigating him?

      There is neither a fair nor logical point, and that in and of itself is the actual point.

    I’m sorry for his loss. Must’ve been tough to lose a sister, being unemployed and struggling to support your family. And then he succeeded and gets rewarded by being treated like this while hedges are sending an army of lawyers after you. So sad. I just want him to win this.

    IT IS A RIGGED UNFAIR GAME FROM THE GET GO…. it destroys the planet because it´s just a meta-numbers game that tries to mirror the reality.
    it would be same as if i would ask you to build a model of the world climate with cottonballs.
    Centralized Markets are British gamerules …. that´s how you know that the game is rigged…
