Hard to understand how this ends well for BGFV short sellers. Seems like a repeat of GME except with shareholder friendly mgmt that doesn't seem to need a RC to step-in. Hard to understand the confidence to short nearly half the float, what is the short thesis? Why do this?

Discount of the century!!! GME is available to purchase on reverse margin, with reverse leverage. For a $213 investment you get $25'000'000 asset. NO RISK (broker is subject to requirements and Market Maker is subject to Margin Call). Offer available for a limited time. "THE PRICE IS WRONG B1TCH"
A primary thesis of GME investing is that shorts did not cover. You have over 122% shorted, and u think a smidge of covering brings that down to "22%"? A short squeeze is categorized by a large pop and then drop. The SEC explains there was no drop (sustained buying). You say "retail FOMO". Fine. It doesnt matter if its Xenomorphs plotting to impregnate humanity via GME buying! What does matter is the shorts: where did they go? Lots of ways to divert those. I can direct u to some fine reading for more, as I guarantee it's above ur pay grade (unless u have good experience with derivatives, swaps, and advanced options plays). What did send the stock down was shutting off retail's buying. Just in time, huh? Im in it to see GME deliver on its turnaround. Why? Because chairman Ryan Cohen is young & wealthy... from successfully taking on Amazon. Can he do it again by following similar leadership decisions and strategies? Well, ur faith will depend on whether or not u have ever shopped at Chewy. Because if u havent? I totally understand why u might erroneously believe Amazon is superior at everything. 🤷♂️ And if its really that simple, why invest at all? Put ur $$$ into Amazon and never look back! Me? I believe RC will take on Amazon and win. Again.
i would place the money on RC or NAT or some dipping low high yield div stock that pays for some of your loan payments. then use that as leverage on a margin purchase for something that will move up in the next few days like ky jelly or blue pill company PFE. then by that time the market should be ready for your QQQ calls with the real money made on the leveraged stocks. but what do i know i just eat sharpies they are like fine conac to my crayons
Word. Thinking it won’t be for a long time, seems like fundamentals are going to need to pick this thing off the floor in a year or twos time, if everything we hoped RC could do actually gets done so I’ll be bagholding You should have hella entry points no doubt
You’re very much not being objective and your major bullet points aren’t very convincing. 1) debt is fine in a company’s capital structure, the absence of it isn’t a major benefit. Bullets 2-4 can be attributed to Covid, tons of companies used it to shore up their ops. Bullets 5-6 may be a plus, but won’t drive revenue growth in the long term. Lastly, I acknowledged the NFT marketplace in my comment. But has there been any confirmation that’s what’s happening? Official announcement by the new CEO? You’re also forgetting, or neglecting to mention, that RC is also a VC investor. And VC investors drum up interest all the time.
Per RC’s team, I agree with you. I think most of the crowd is being a bit too hopeful on the new team; they may end up performing phenomenally but those results require time. I believe in RC because of past work experience. Something I think is overlooked, clearing house on the previous C suite and Board is a net positive for the company, long term. The business strategy over the past decade slowly focused on fad collectables and popculture trinkets to the point that the business became nearly unrecognizable as a video game retailer. Had RC (or a VC firm) not come in and clean house, it would have been dead by now.
How about this in addition to the “but NFT’s” angle, no insider selling, RC owns ~12% of shares with ability to purchase up to 20% after 2/9/22, poaching hundreds of employees from major companies, 2 new distribution centers, a new customer service center, $1b cash on hand, no debt, and $100m set aside for share repurchase, 55 million powerup rewards members, increased product offerings, frenzied shareholder customer base? That’s in addition to the obvious strange behavior that’s been happening since last January.
wtf? A business is absolutely measured on its leaders, whether good or bad. One big point most big money investors look at is good management and their track records. I'll bet you the only reason GME is holding its 100 dollar share price today is because of Ryan Cohen and the team he's building... there is literally nothing else it could be measured against because revenue doesn't match the evaluation and RC won't give any guidance on anything.
So 2 points 1. I have watched many of DFVs vids, he thought GME could maybe go to $40 back then. Yes, he did buy more at $150 but you are implying he has yet to sell a share. GME has spiked way above $150 multiple times after he bought in and we really have zero clue if he sold or not 2. I dig RC. He gives me a ton of hope - however he did not turn Chewy around. He founded Chewy, brought it to a semblance of large scale and then sold it without the company having ever realized actual profit. What he did at Chewy, founding and growing, is totally different from what I think he is dealing with and needs to accomplish at GME. I also think he’s prolly feelin like he bit off more than he can chew, trying to satisfy investors who pumped the stock to $200+ most of the year when he bought in in the single digits and likely thought he’d be lucky if he could triple his investment in a few years, let alone 50x or more
Judging by the comments so far in this thread I doubt a serious discussion can be had. No guidance to investors by RC, the (frankly, very optimistic) timelines of producing a marketplace less than a year after hiring developers, the constant repeat about RC's team (like smart people haven't been wrong before). The idea of an NFT marketplace is interesting, but to get the buy-in from developers, figure out licensing (cross-border), revenue shares, etc etc, doesn't happen overnight.
Then short it. We aren’t going anywhere. Why didn’t people get margin called on their gme position is because they dropped the price with the market, as they had to. How did they do this? Shorting through etfs. Look at how yesterday during the 4% dip in spy, while the entire market was crashing, EVERY SINGLE stock in the xrt etf was up while gme was down. It’s the endgame now, we are drsing and there are no shares for them to find. Also RC and the 400+ execs he’s hired aren’t joining and taking payment in shares to drop the value to $4. So many comments like this I don’t know if you’re paid to write this bullshit or just a sour pussy who paperhanded earlier in the year. The DD hasn’t been disproven, because it can’t be. We see evidence that they’re still holding their shorts every single day.
Because a lot of rich people (which admittedly includes RC's firm) did the math and realized that with enough volume they could make billions by squeezing irresponsible short sellers out of their positions. So they did exactly that, propped up the valuation, forced out the shorts, and made themselves a lot of money. Retail investors (you) caught wind and jumped in as well, furthering the squeeze. Pretty much impossible to go bankrupt within 1 year of becoming the single benefactor of the largest short squeeze the world has ever seen. And the icing on the cake? Nothing about GME's current metrics suggest the company will report even $1 of profit in 2023 and beyond. It's a dice roll.
The squeeze was possible because RC took over and prevented the company to avoid being shorted into bankruptcy which was SHFs plan. I don’t have a specific price target because I’m betting on a short squeeze still. That being said, I think the company will survive and continue to grow under the new team, and I’m not looking to hit sell the stock in the next 5 years unless it’s during a squeeze play. If it doesent squeeze I’ll hold on to it and see what happens. My average is pretty low so I’m not worried about losing money.
You do realize they "cleaned house" after the squeeze and that the only reason the price shot up current levels was due to HFs being forced into buying shares to cover their massive short positions, right? The price did not go up because of RC. I should ask, what's your price target two years from now? What price would you sell your shares at?
Gme literally cleaned house and has hired tons of new exec. It’s been a year and you expect the company to have already turned around? The whole argument about whether or not RC will turn GME into a powerhouse has at least 2 more years before it will be answered
“It’s on sale, lOvE thE dIp!!” “I’ll never sell I’m still profitable anyways” “Just manipulation we’ll moon when RC tweets” “I’m a long term investor GME is gonna be the Amazon of gaming” “NeEd mOrE chIpS foR thIs diP!!1!” “Nobody is selling this is just hedge fund ladder attacks” “We hold the float buy hold DRS and we’ll be millionaires soon!!”
I'm not much of a trader. More of a long term investor. I wish I could time the market like that but as you can see, my buys are all over the place. I just buy when I can at whatever price point I find attractive. I could have sold at $345 but that far too low if RC does what I believe he's capable of.
Oh yeah, what's that? It went to 40 after January run up and back to low 100s multiple times dirimg 2021 and people said the same then. Yet here we are, price has "tanked" and it's still above 100. They haven't even announced anything yet. RC is playing the long game and when the time is right all hell will break loose again.
You said it perfectly, and I can’t ever get an answer when I bring up those points either: * if the market is so corrupt what the fuck makes them think they’ll get paid? * if $103 is all it takes to make $70,000,000 in the huge squeeze, why isn’t literally all of the world in on this? So many hedge funds with rocket scientist level mathematicians who would be long GameStop if this theory were at all true * if DFV and RC are positioned to be the worlds first trillionaires, why are they both not saying shit? Oh is RC afraid of triggering the squeeze because whatever husk of a government remains after the Fed prints more money than exists on the planet will go after him for fucking market manipulation? Really? Goddamn these guys are stupid.
Falling on deaf ears I'm afraid. ThEy DiDn'T AnOuNcE aNy NeWs YeT 😂. What happened to buy the rumour, sell the fucking news? RC is a genius and putting the squeze to one side, people doubting his ability to turn GameStop into a killer company are going to end up with red faces. But I guess there's always going to be skeptics.
just up :) Chewy has double the mkt cap, but a smaller market segment. OpenSea's valuation is 13b - they operate a digital mkt place, a component of Gamestop's company. RC has assembled a great team... I'll let them set the timeframe and pace. I was in tsla at IPO and out last year - a decade, my hunch is this will take less time to mature/develop 3-5 years? Elon had to battle big oil/auto, a lot more resistance in the marketplace. Most of that time, the MSM yelled SELL.... na let the thesis play out, re-evaluate often -- sell when you're proud not when you are fearful (unless your thesis falls apart then kick your own ass out the door). I'll harvest gains down the road to invest in new theses. Or sell covered calls. Something I would have never investigated if it were not for Gamestop b/c I believed the standard line "options are dangerous, just stay away". Turns out they drive the whole market and watching them is probably more important than the chart. They definitely shed light on why the chart is doing what it is doing. cheers!
Word is failure to delivers are stacking up and are coming the next few weeks. GME is FTDs. Last run up with DFV and RC happened to time well with the last batch. This year less liquidity and more FTDs. Bigger boom. Not financial advice
If GME dies a miserable slow death, then at least we can say that RC at least had the conviction to ride and die with us, along with all the other C-level management new hires who hodled. AMC is a different story. CEO and CFO already bailed out a long time ago. AMC apes simply ignored these obvious red flags. So in conclusion they're more retarded than GME apes and had it coming.
SqUeEzE is on: Feb shorts cover SqUeEzE is on: March board meeting SqUeEzE is on: April voting SqUeEzE is on: May after squoze shorts being forced to cover SqUeEzE is on: June earnings SqUeEzE is on: July after "removing the selling pressure" SqUeEzE is on: August after New Regulation ... SqUeEzE is on: September 2023 after RC changes company, somehow! SqUeEzE is on: January 2021 after nft gifs are sold
I think he means he trusts him and his vision. He doesn’t know his vision but is basing it of off chewy I’d suppose? So he’s investing in RC based on past performance and probably a lot of hype. Nobody can say for sure what the plan actually is
>I invest in people and I believe in the vision RC has, all the DD I need What exact vision does he have? When he first joined he talked about closing stores and trying to pivot to eCommerce what isn't a new or bold strategy its what every brick and mortar retailer has been doing (Target, wallmart, best buy) Other than that he tweets about poop.
GME hasn't officially released ANY information, you can gather they are working on some NFT market place The general public sees (rightfully so) NFTs being a scam/fad/money laundering technique ; gamers absolutely despise them and see them as just another way of making incomplete games and forcing you to pay to play or pay to win. RC tweets about poop Tell me again what this deep DD is?
No one fully understands anything in the stock market, no one The DD is fun but is often flawed bc we only have flawed data to base it on I invest in people and I believe in the vision RC has, all the DD I need Best of luck with your gains!
AMC never made sense compared to its competitors plus the CEO has the charisma and tact of a three-legged toad with herpies. The potential for GME and the direction of RC is why the stock is still good IMO. Do what you want I eat crayons.
Can't wait to see what the next goal post is. It's almost comical how often these statements are wrong. Hedgies are fucked! Citadel is literally the best performing hedgefund of 2021. Kenny Boi is running out of ammo! His net worth soars to unprecedented levels. ~~The vote count! DRSing! Options! Loopring! NFT marketplace! IRA DRS! OPEN BOOK COMPUSHARE! NFT DIVIDEND! RC Joining the Board! Evergrande collapsing! 741! Earning reports! Variable Swap Theory! +21 FTDs! Jason Waterfall lawsuit!~~ Apex! Is the catalyst! Yes, finally, this is the one!
Oh yea sorry I forgot reality isn’t a real thing with you guys , maybe RC will tweet a 💩 and you’ll all ape call and yolo next weeks paycheck and your wife’s into it to. See you sub $90 by next week , your beloved GME doesn’t deserve 1/3 of the 9 billion market cap it’s currently sitting on and that’s just realistic
Idk - who said I was looking for RC's attention? Who said I was holding to 30m a share? Who made those assertions.... I didn't - you put them out there, so you could feel "right" (lol). That's a strawman argument - they call it that b/c it's easy to knock down / not made of much. Let me know if you need/want more help with English. Another price spike - HURRRY make a meme! This one will work fer sure you've been at this for a year - I'm sure the next one will work, post #672 that's the one - make it count!
Yes NFT , a product the general public see as a complete scam and gamers see as another way to sell incomplete games and force the players to keep paying just to play the game or some play to win scheme Gamers absolutely hate in game micro transactions and play to win schemes Not to mention there are 300 other NFT marketplaces but gamestops will transform the world and save the company ....because well RC just tweeted some shit (literally he tweets about poop)
That has crossed my mind few times. I cant really say 100% but he did seem more bullish on the company rather than just the squeeze. At his buy in prices he can hold until 2024 and just let RC play it out. If the company succeeds it will have a higher stock price than the January sneeze. If he has sold tho I'd take a guess and say he hasn't sold all. His family are sorted for life and he still has a large stake ... maybe
Idk enough about shfs to answer that. It seems like they’re just really desperate to stay afloat but idk if that’s true or not. They have a lot of money and influence and the market is rigged 🤷♂️. I do believe in RC though and he’s probably the main reason why I invested.
Okay so I agree the company is not going bankrupt anytime soon BUT they need to start making money. Whatever they’re working on needs to eventually be released and actually be profitable. The apes and meme stock hype gave them breathing room but now RC&team need to step up or this will all be for nothing.
If you were shorting it, you wouldn't be standing next to it... you'd be profiting from it's downfall. You made a bad joke - on a bad post ... unless you think that was retail yolo'ing into GME in post-mkt but then giving up at open, for $165...haha. They were waiting for that WSJ piece and cramer to pump it, to make their move - lol. That garbage sparked my dad to buy more - knowing they must either need money or be desperate -- even boomers read them like cheap novels. What did iTunes do for apple? Take a look at opensea's valuation or what the winklevoss twins invested in today.... those are features. Who spends more money gamers or pets? Who attracted top talent from great jobs to go work at a "mall store" lol? I do have a sense of the risk/rewards... most people showed up for the squeeze then found the (literal) DFV. A Swedish broker decided to quit sharing share-count information when it revealed; since the shareholder vote their users had increased their holdings by 60% and now held 1% of the free float. I really tried to get that type of information from my brokers - they all gave weak non-answers. I called the Nevada gambling board - they have robust rules around challenging the deck being used to play the game. Odd my brokers wouldn't tell me, and the Swedish firm isn't going to share the information any more. Probably nothing. GME is a symptom of a system where stocks are routinely oversold (by a lot). It normally doesn't matter.... until HFs bet on a bankruptcy jackpot (they were probably going to default on their bond, short bears are not dumb!)...and over-sell the security to the point of a reaction.gif, then in comes RC who poop'd chewy out in a few years. I'll wait for him to poop some more. Because all shorts have to cover, and while they may not want to be first, they surely don't want to be last. :D
> You’re so quick to talk when RC has only been the chairman for 1 year, And in that year they've done nothing but shitpost on twitter. > for a company with no debt This isn't a good or a bad thing, money is still very cheap in this environment so having a small amount of debt isn't a problem if it allows faster growth (which they aren't doing). > they’re clearly working in the background without making noise Who knows what they're up to, but the radio silence isn't a good thing, most companies will at least give an idea of where they're headed. > You don’t want to invest and thats ok but I’m willing to take the risk That's fair, I will reconsider once GameStop shows that it has a plausible, concrete path to profitability with a reasonable valuation (like 1/4th the current price), until then I'm sticking with SPY and other trades.
You’re so quick to talk when RC has only been the chairman for 1 year, for a company with no debt and they’re clearly working in the background without making noise. You don’t want to invest and thats ok but I’m willing to take the risk 🤷🏻♂️
Look at tsla. It went to over a trillion in market cap when wallstreet was telling you to sell when it was 50 billion in market cap. All those tsla fanboys look real smart now. I have trust in RC. He went against Amazon and won. He is a genius business man with a vision that is second to none. GameStop will be worth several times more than it's current price as long as he is involved. If he sells out, then I am out. Otherwise, I will continue to stay invested.
My cost average is 68 and I believe in RC - and the most fanatical investor base in the history of the stock market. The cheaper it gets, the more we buy and DRS, til there’s none left. You’ve made your opinion abundantly clear, agin and again, even though nobody asked… so you gonna short it?
DFV's last buy in was around $155. I don't believe he would have sold before seeing what RC will attempt as a turn around but to fair no one knows what he has done since his last update. But it is worth pointing out that DFV bought at $40 and $150ish. He is only red on the 150 shares
My retirement number will probably not happen as I've never been given a free lunch in life. However, I do believe in 'time in market' and growing my wealth the hard way, so I just accept the fact that these things take time and hope my belief in RC and Furlong isn't misguided. To answer your questions: no, I don't believe my retirement number will be reached. Yes, I would probably sell if it was reached. I am no whale, so most others will probably sell before me, that's why I think my number will never be reached.
Do ya like cryptic RC tweets? If so, then he had a Mario Winter Olympics tweet with "Power to the Players" in the summertime. Winter Olympics in Bejing begins Feb 4th and runs through the 20th which is during the tail end of the OTM options expiries, ETF FTDs, share FTDs, and predicted 30-40% of the float should be DRS. Possibly even more. It would make sense if you were a good strategist to release news to the media that would be worth the entire years quarters or more. All when they are trying to cover by minimizing how much the price runs up to stabilize at higher trading than now.
Yeah bro. The rumored partner is loop ring (L RC) they have a Sub on reddit. There are developers keeping an eye on the codes that get leaked for the marketplace. There are several leaks, more as of late. Definitely worth your time checking it out
RC has talked about being able to trade digital games. Microsoft now have the publishing rights to games like, call of duty, world of warcraft, diablo, fallout, skyrim and so on. Microsoft have a partnership in place with gamestop and gamstop is literally about to release an nft marketplace. Open your eyes
Probably because your reply is full of nonsense speculation and just shitting on gamestop saying nothing they do will work, and their employees are useless. Nonetheless here is my reply to each of your points. I genuinely would like to continue the discussion so feel free to pick holes in what I've said. 1. Was being terribly run with little effort to expand to ecommerce or even include PC gaming. Was reliant on being a 2nd hand disc retailer and selling FunkoPops. Haven't yet seen effects of business transformation. Not trying to be amazon, gamestop is a more speciality focused business. Clearing debt allows them to close underperformed stores as previous debt was using stores for collateral. 2. Nothing to add. Major debt cleared. 3. 45m Power Up members as is. Huge media coverage. Chair has track record of superb customer service, central to the business. Global company. 4. I haven't time to research your assertion. But gamestop have headhunted hundreds of executives from incredibly successful companies. 5. Furlong certainly being paid in part with shares. Not sure of all others. Shares held by insiders is up 5.2%, (issued by company). Source: bloomberg terminal 6. 30% increase Q32020 to Q32021. Loads of room to improve sales. Gotta start somewhere. Comparing to 5-10 years ago is irrelevant. 7. They sell a lot more now. Have doubled product offering in a year. Everything from lego to clothes to PCs, TVs and phones. Cheapest retailer in the US for TVs at the moment AFAIK 8. RC is gonna sell in march? Speculative nonsense not worth a reply 9. Why would Furlong throw away his career. Chunk of salary in stock options also. This is more nonsense 10. Look around, NFTs are coming, whether you like it or not. And they're a lot more than jpg avatars. Reselling of in game items, crypto gaming, and yes reselling of digital games. Why not? Big games already dished out for free or pennies on steam and PSN by publishers. 11. Saying their esport team will 'probably be shit' doesn't isn't a valid an argument 12. It's already a huge industry, why would it decrease now? So what if people who stand to profit from it will push it. That's how it works.
