That is why I posted the update. I got into AMC, but am going to exit on Monday with a small gain.

Only NOK hit for me. Hopefully there will be an early plunge Monday and the rest will trigger.

I also signed up for the annual Pro-Rewards membership as more of an annual reminded of this glorious squeeze.

I was at the mall last night picking up some birthday gifts for my daughter, and I stopped to get a selfie with the Game Stop store. Just a souvenir.

The Big Short SQUEEZE from $5 to $50? Could GameStop stock (GME) explode higher?? Value investing!

In this video I share a new style of my analysis on GameStop (GME, $4.61, $299M market cap). As of August 2020 I'm bullish on the stock. What are your thoughts on GME?

I bought my last big position on April 8, 2020. In fact, pretty sure I'd been posting about this possibility for a couple years. I was pretty concerned and almost done with the company until new management and then Burry came along. Should have gone all-in then.

Here is the thread. Though it looks like I forgot to actually mention the company when I was trying to get physical certificates. I did post the GME chart at $13...

GameStop Trading Should Be Halted for 30 Days, Says State Securities Regulator

https://www.barrons.com/articles/ga...ities-regulator-51611768563?mod=bol-social-fb
“I really think at this point it calls upon the regulators, in this case, the New York Stock Exchange, to consider simply suspending it for a month and stop trading it,” William Galvin, the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, told Barron’s. “These small and unsophisticated investors are probably going to get hurt by this.”

Color me shocked that a scumbag in taxachusetts suddenly hates free markets when whale hunting season comes around.

Massivetwoshitts politicians and lieutenants always have their nose right up there in the thick of shit like this! They love the limelite and the exposure. If I'm an average American keeping up with current events I think to myself:
'Who cares what this guy has to say? The people actually found a way to stick it to the man and I'm one of 'the people'! No brakes, not suspensions. Open trading, keep the hammer down and let's see where this leads!'

Mark Cuban would like to share a little tip with WSB short-squeezers:

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/m...ttle-trick-creating-mother-all-short-squeezes

Mark Cuban Presents A "Little Trick" For Creating The Mother Of All Short Squeezes

by Tyler Durden
Saturday, Jan 30, 2021 - 11:02

A few days ago when Wall Street was panicking over the unprecedented short squeeze that had sent the most shorted names soaring and streamrolling hedge funds such as Melvin Capital, Maplelane and countless others, we said that instead of engaging in damage control already perhaps Wall Street should consider how much worse it could still get. To wit, late on Jan 26 we said that a "little trick" that is available (for those with cash accounts) was for holders of GME stock to call back shares they owned of the heavily shorted names.
Here's a little trick: everyone who is long GME should instruct their broker tomorrow to make their shares not lendable.
— zerohedge (@zerohedge) January 27, 2021
Just a few hours later, early in the Thursday premarket session, things started to really move: that's when GME hit an all time high of $513.12 which has yet to be topped.

So did people call back their shares? Perhaps, we don't know, or maybe that's about to happen. According to S3 Partners, the total short interest is still a whopping 113% of the float, which means the squeeze could easily go on for a long time if the buyers kept applying pressure.
And none other than Mark Cuban may have assured of just that.
In a series of tweets on Friday, the iconic investor and "shark" compared the lending and rebate payment mechanism in stocks vs DeFi crypto tokens (where the bearer gets the benefit of the borrow fee and not the broker) and said - in an almost verbatim paraphrase of our "tricky" tweet from two days earlier - the following:
"one trick that I have been on both sides of is to lend out stock to shorts at a high APY and then call back my shares, which forces the short to cover. Now if #WSB did this en masse, it would be the mother of all short squeezes ".​
But if they do, one trick that I have been on both sides of is to lend out stock to shorts at a high APY and then call back my shares, which forces the short to cover. Now if #WSB did this en masse, it would be the mother of all short squeezes .
— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) January 29, 2021
Cuban made another point which we also addressed previously, namely that with millions of new users signing up to r/WallStreetBets where each trader has an average brokerage account of $5,000 (soon to get another $1,400 "stimmy check" infusion), the subreddit has become the world's biggest distributed, decentralized hedge fund with a "hive mind", where all the individual traders coordinate and work as one, and one which can steamroll over virtually any Wall Street veteran. In fact, at this rate, Once WSB has 15 million or so members - which should happen by the end of the week, as it now has a whopping 7 million up from 2 million at the start of the week - it will have more monetary firepower than the world's biggest hedge fund (central banks not included) Bridgewater:

What's going on is basically a targeted DDOS of short hedge funds by millions of retail investors. And nobody knows what to do about it.
— zerohedge (@zerohedge) January 27, 2021
And here's Cuban on this topic too:
The beauty of what has happened with #WSB is that Wall street is learning an expensive lesson that The Way Things Have Always Been Done is not How Things Should Be Done. There is power in numbers working together. Buy and Trade Together can be a whole lot more powerful than old-school buy and hold. Im not saying HODLing stocks is bad. It can be great and have the same impact as HODLing crypto. And the same principals even apply. The number of shares outstanding and their growth is comparable to coins mined (without the algorithmic control).

His full thread is below (source):
Lets talk $GME shorts vs De-Fi. When someone shorts a stock that is already heavily shorted, they have to pay a fee to borrow that stock. In the case of $GME that fee has been hovering around 30% this week. Shorts have to pay (Price x .30)/360 per day. In DeFi thats a 30% APY.
For RH Traders that own $GME that money, as best I can tell, is held in street name. Which means that 30% APR goes 100pct to @RobinhoodApp . Imagine if you pooled your crypto and the platform was getting 30% APY and didnt pay all but fees to you ? What would happen ?
This is one more way that Wall St takes advantage of the little guy. If you are moving from RH, look to see if you can find some place that allows you to hold the shares and lend them in YOUR name, so you get the Yield (Yield Farming in stocks !). Not all will allow it.
But if they do, one trick that I have been on both sides of is to lend out stock to shorts at a high APY and then call back my shares, which forces the short to cover. Now if #WSB did this en masse, it would be the mother of all short squeezes .

It can be great and have the same impact as HODLing crypto. And the same principals even apply. The number of shares outstanding and their growth is comparable to coins mined (without the algorithmic control).
If small trades can work together and share information together the power to move stock pricing moves quickly from the analyst on Wall Street to the people working together. There is one VERY IMPORTANT caveat. No amount of trading together can keep a bad company in business.
But if individual traders educate each other and use their combined strength to focus on good companies , with strong prospects, the power shifts from wall street to main street, particularly now that Direct Listings are changing the IPO game. Thoughts ? Comments ?​
So for all those wondering how and when GameStop will Stop, and if the squeeze is finally over, as long as iconic figures with a chip on their shoulder and a desire to inflict more pain on Wall Street continue to chime in with perspectives on how to keep the pain up, it is likely that the unprecedented short squeeze mania is not over by a long shot. And furthermore, with borrow costs now at 50%, even in the absence of further painful gains in the stock price the cost of carry alone will force the shorts to cover in the coming days should the price of GME fail to drop.

I think everyone should have some skin in GME. I picked up half a dozen shares in my IRA. Not a huge amount at all, but fun! If a few million people pick up a handful of shares and refuse to sell...

Wall street is most definitely the enemy. That said I dislike it when the little people generically refer to "evil rich people". ...as though anyone that's built a company up from nothing, is somehow "bad". The idiotic Marxist thinking makes me throw up a little.

Wall street operators? ...yeah hang them useless fuckers.

Hedge Fund Billionaire Claims Americans Are 'Getting Checks From The Government' And Investing 'To Attack Wealthy People'
Digg Jan 28, 2021 @13:42 PM · Updated: Jan 29, 2021 @14:01 PM

Hedge fund billionaire Leon Cooperman went on CNBC to decry the Reddit-fueled frenzy that's currently sending shockwaves through the trading markets. The irate businessman said that people who are sitting at home and trading stocks using government checks was a "bullshit concept" and "a way of attacking wealthy people."

Awww, don'tcha just feel his pain.

He doesn't like the taste of his own medicine one bit.

When these pathetic bastards short a stock, they are attacking non-rich people.

Turn about is more than fair play, you pathetic bastard.

I'd rather buy some PSLV to get in before the next short squeeze. And silver's fundamentals are 1000x better than the GameStock dinosaur.

Agreed. I am looking at getting a lot more PSLV than GME. Nothing wrong with playing both games.

Any guesses on what religion or tribe she might belong to?
Even more interesting would be what her husband of whatever gender does for a living.

Yeah, Wall St. has been fucking main street for so long on those bond issues, they think Ja-Hova gave them the franchise on Mt. Sinai.

But it is nice they pay your disability out of the goodness of their heart. BTW, where to I sign up for that Wall St. disability check? Anybody know?

They pay your 401k? Ohh. Like my fridge pays me beer, except I get all my beer back from the fridge. Wall St., not so much.

Talk of silver tends to really piss this "goldismoney2" crowd off.

I wonder why? hmmmmnmmmm

PSLV. Because they are closed ended - must take delivery to match investment. I am all in Monday morning. Not a lot for some people, but more than I paid for my house.

A question.

Has any of this "action" changed the fundamentals of GME? Or is it still a turd waiting to be flushed?

Sprott Physical Silver Trust is a closed-end investment trust company, which investment objective is to provide a secure, convenient, and exchange-traded investment alternative for investors interested in holding physical silver bullion without the inconvenience that is typical of a direct investment in physical silver bullion. The Trust invests and intends to continue to invest primarily in long-term holdings of unencumbered, fully allocated, physical silver bullion, and does not speculate with regard to short-term changes in silver prices. The company was founded on June 30, 2010 and is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.

Well, that was an easy sell. I put the order in on my M1 account. I’m 100% Monday morning.

On the top shelf.
I took a stroll over to Reddit r/WallStreetBets and I have to say I am impressed. A bunch of guys said they sold but then showed their donations to Children's Hospitals and other charities.

One guy donated $5K CAD to his local hospital to buy game consoles for the kids with the stipulation that they buy from GameStop. There are literally dozens and dozens of people showing donation receipts from their proceeds. All of these donations are $1K or more. Simply amazing.

One guy bought bags of peanuts for the staff of his local GameStop and each bag had a $100 USD bill taped to it and and a note telling them to enjoy the show.

I am utterly gobsmacked.

And they are a Canadian operation, at least nominally insulated from the shenanigans that go on Wall St. and DC.

And if and when the time comes to sell PSLV, there are favorable tax advantages compared to SLV.

I'd go half in & PSLV & half in physical in 100 oz secondary bars. Takes more physical out of circulation & the ratio is tightening so it might be another way to squeeze out a little more or trade it for that other stuff when the ratio closes........

PSLV takes delivery of physical. In fact takes it out of circulation where it hurts the shorts directly. The physical at your dealer is too far down the chain to be of interest to them.
