A little history
First Key, reddit is an online network of communities known as subreddits. r/WallStreetBets is a large subreddit where members generally share high-risk investments, a mythical figure at the center of r/WallStreetBets and GameStop is a user called u/DeepFuckingValue. As far as September 2019 he had roughly $50k invested in calls of GameStop stock (call options = a contract to buy a security in the future at a specified price and date) now his ownership is up to 200,000 GameStop shares. Well played, Keith. I like the stock too.
You must read about Value Investing, and so on...
Second Key Ryan Cohen (Legendary Investor Who Made $3 Billion Almost Overnight) decide get into Gamestop. Seeing an oportunity to transform it. Cohen’s goal is to push the company rapidly into ecommerce. Now the company has ZERO DEBT, PLENTY CASH money on the box, and so on...
Third Key A company bet doomed by Hedgies, heavily shorted is now by surprise on the way to a bright future. Things changes, sometimes very quickly..
Fourth Key Shorts must cover. This is the sad truth for some. Eventually this has to happen. The situation can be prolonged in time but not indefinitely. The chain losses for shorters will be astronomical in scale. Crazy gains for longs too. The longer it lasts in time, the greater snowball they will be. It is simply financial thermodynamics. Or financial entropy if you want to call it that.
Fith Key Almost all of the float is in the hands of individual investors who buy and hold. The even don't care if it goes up or down. If it goes up they keep. If it drops enough they have the opportunity to buy more. They wait patiently for the MOASS. The greater squeeze of all times.
Sixth Key The big key. Hedgies still are in. Deeply shorted still inside. Several times the amount of the float. Which is a real madness. (Madness?, this is Sparta!) But since the Hedgies never intended to cover, they got inside more and more... and this is what there is now: A real financial black hole for the Hedgies and related and a Big Bang of money for investors. Wait and see....
(Hormozzadeh) The situation in Gamestop is pretty simple. There is no suply of stock and there is a massive demand because short sellers need to cover and new buyers coming every single day. Stock should go higher and higher until demand satisfied. Period.
There are several scenarios, in my humble opinion, of what is about to happen:
First: Time passes and apparently nothing happens. Well, not so, prices go up or down. Snowball get greater and greater, tic tac, until BANG!!! Because this situation is not stable. Only cuestion of time.
Second: Investors decide to shoot themselves in the foot by selling the shares, Shorts can cover cheap... sorry Hedgies, this is not going to happen because investors have nothing to lose and much to gain. Simply waiting..
Third: The MOASS, Margie Call, gimme my money... This is by far the most likely scenario. Just matter of time. May US financial system put a limit to max price? nobody knows...! some are talking about 30 millions US $ a share or more, some infinity. Buy a cristal ball and say $1 million a share to avoid a systemic crash. The US government makes a lot of money from taxes, the problem is solved and so on...
Third scenario is higly speculative because nobody knows what is about to happen except that share price is gonna goes up to the moon and shorts must cover. Apes begin to change the world for good with their actions, gently helping other, etc.
It is implicity assumed that an APE
* Is going to dedicate a portion of the benefits of its investments to the common good, helping others and the benefit of the planet.
* Is going to be discreet and gentle.
* Does not make its investment against anyone or anything but for the benefit of himself, family, friends and its environment.
Unwritten clauses. This is a voluntary commitment. No obligation of any kind. Each person is free to do what he pleases with his money. However, this is what an good APE does.
Disinformation media. Ex. 'Hype false bad news to down price stock'
Manipulate Stock Price
Ex. To Down: Sell in open market, buy in dark pools on fixed prices
Hide Puts on ETFs
Pack shorts with other stocks
Kick the can
Go on shorts on later dates. Making the snowball greater
Block buys of stock upon going up
Some companies are on litigation for causing loses
Lend your shares
Use your stock to temporary sells or buys or collateral making you lose money. Sometimes you even don't know this is happening, take a look to your broker contract.
Use of privileged information
Reorder of stock orders, slow orders, pack buys or sells on some criteria, priorize clients, etc.
Buy Puts with no intention to cover
The objetive is crash down the corporation with some combined attacks. And make good money with the puts.
Failure to deliver
Inability of a party to deliver a tradable asset, or meet a contractual obligation
... more fuckeries
We could go on and on.... forever. Take a look yourself on Internet
All this information has been collected searching by Internet. All is public.
These are techniques, no implicit acusation to anyone or it. SEC is to avoid this.
Are used by some companies to their profit? I don't know. I am just a humble reader.
