I seriously cannot believe these GameStop fanboys.
So last month they were all doing chest bumps as they drove the stock to $513, only to see it collapse to $40 and linger there. Then, on Wednesday, GME went bananas again. I didn’t know if I could stomach looking at /wsb, but I peeked, and sure enough, they were all ecstatic and predicting GME’s ascent this time would be $1,000. The reason? Big. Round. Number.
I watched the hearings most of the day. What a laugh. One interesting item was when /wsb’s hero of heroes, DFV, showed up and touted GameStop – – the gullible goofballs in reddit-land gobbled up the stock (again) and started high-fiving each other.
Mercifully, I have not darkened the doorway of corporate America since 1990. However, I remember all too well the ridiculous catchphrases and lingo of cubicle-land, and I can see nothing much has changed in the past thirty years. It is what it is.
