The Legend of D.F.V.

By -

About a year ago, not that many people had heard of WallStreetBets, and even fewer people frequented the place. Sure, as an investment subculture of the Internet, it was a fairly big deal, but the growth and media presence over the past year has been stunning.

This post isn’t about WSB in general but about one user in particular: he goes by the R-rated screen name of /deepfuckingvalue, but for the sake of semi-decency, we’ll just refer to this anonymous trader as DFV. I’m also going to assume that “he” is a “he”, since the male/female ratio of WSB is about a billion to one.
