    It's gonna crash any day.

    An internet ploy, fueled by Elon Musk and intended to screw (that's a technical term) the hedge funds that were shorting the stock, will end up costing gazillions of dollars to those who bought shares in a retailer headed for failure.

    Unless Elon Musk put big bucks into buying at the inflated price, I feel bad for all of them.

    At least the ploy gave me an opportunity to unload some Blackberry stock I bought years ago with a bit of a profit.

    My coworker gained a small amount ($1k) on it.
    One of our employees said her sister was texting her complaining all day because she recently sold her Gamestop stock and it would have been about $10k had she sold it today.

    This will be one of our "one off memories " from 2021. Good times.

    If they sold at the right time. Other people will lose their respective shirts.

    My grandparents bought Winnebago stock early. If they had sold at the right time I wouldn't need a job.

    When value is based on the idea that something is valuable things can get dodgy.
