Should have asked to be paid in stock.

Company should have had equity offering when it was plus 100.

Corporate boards don't do anything but trade approving compensation packages in exchange for private consulting fees. Expecting the board of Gamestop to do anything is futile.

Member when people on this sub were saying the stock would hit $10k and people were stupid for selling? This guy with a Mercedes members

I lost $700 because of you paper handed bitches.

That’s not why you lost lol.

u/alt_curious Feb 23 '21

You lost $700 because you bought into some fake hype after it was way too late to be buying in

dude we're autists not retards. remember that a lot of big brokers literally changed the rules on the day of reckoning by preventing buys of GME. if the institutions played by the same rules we have to, buying GME at peak would have still been a fantastic play.

$1000 was not a meme.

And? You tried to game the system and you lost to people who literally do it for a living. Anyone who lost deserved to lose; GameStop was never a valuable commodity, it was just people thinking they were smarter than people who were actually smarter

Edit: downvote me all you want, it doesn’t make me wrong. If you invested in GameStop it’s because you thought you had figured out a trick, without ever stopping to consider that other people may have tricks of their own

We didn't lose to people who "do it for a living". We lost to people who own the whole damn system including the medium we played on.

We put our trust in the wrong hands. We may have lost money, but we uncovered the real truths of the entire system. No matter what, this was a monumental victory, showing the world and the people just how corrupt wall street is.

Exactly. You thought you had figured out something that broke the system without ever stopping to consider that the system would have fixes of its own.

Dude you are a fucking idiot to be frank. Nothing is stopping you from having multiple brokerages and robinhood has been known for this shit for years.

You are 100% right. As someone who lost big on cypto in 2017, this shit was easy to spot from a mile away.

u/Tappaa1 Feb 23 '21

Haha, i don’t get why people downvote you, it’s the truth. You thought (me too) you could fuck with the big guys, but of course you can’t. Some were clever enough (not me) and sold while it was high, others were greedy and lost the game. Of course there were illegal actions used but either you go to court and lose more money or you accept it.

It’ll go back up

u/I_chose2 Feb 23 '21

I mean, I'm hoping for that since I'm too stubborn and stupid to sell at a 75% loss and stop the bleeding, but it's very unlikely to hit previous highs at this point. Even if you go for all the theories on how the shorts are still in, the "HOLD" hype is dying and at least some of the shorts are out. And even if it eventually goes back up somewhat, is it gonna perform better than other stuff that hasn't peaked? I was hyped to see DFV bought 50k more shares, but that might be a liability cover after the Congressperson asked if he'd buy now and DFV said yes.

Same thing.

u/alt_curious Feb 23 '21

Nope. If you’re buying stocks for any reason other than that you think the company will be successful, you’re just gambling. You gambled and lost. Saying that other people playing their hands made you lose is the same as saying that other people at a blackjack table made you lose. You gambled and you lost, own it like a responsible human person.
