I dunno, Zak or Cain or someone will probably have a better opinion, but GME's fundamentals and future do not, in any way, represent a $25B+ company, to me. Badly declining revenue, a market they can't compete in, a company that was *widely* despised before it became a meme? Meh. GME and AMC and all of that (crypto in particular, all weed stocks) strike me as the new roulette wheel - they could certainly keep going up purely as memes, but I think investing in them as actual companies and traditional stocks is dumb.

i'd definitely sell some GME at this price level. technical analysis shows it's way overextended beyond the moving averages.

Ya I've been looking to trade my laptop with a 1060 in it for a Macbook Air just because I don't like hauling around this giant thing but once BTC fell the used price on eBay dropped from $1000 to $600

And honestly I will probably go iPhone for my next phone, Android hasn't improved since the Pixel 2

It's really annoying when you are the only person in your family that has any sort of understanding of personal finance.

My parents and my wife just have no clue and refuse to listen to reason. Any time I bring up the word "investment" it's treated the same as if I suggested bear hunting with a cocktail fork.

GME is my favorite thing ever. No matter what happens - actually squeezes and crazy gain porn, or nothing but slow retraction and a shitload of very poor bagholders still posting diamond emoji - it'll be hilarious.

If I were going with a meme stock it would be AMC because at least they were a successful business

My partner's brother turned $18,000 to $6,000 the first cycle. It's a big yikes from me.

I'm thinking Disney at 172 right now

Marvel/Star Wars movies coming and the parks getting closer to normal along with a bad week for whatever reason

Yeah, I get some of the other memes - but everyone fucking hated Gamestop when they were a real store. No one's buying shit there next year, and they'll have a tough time building their own storefront to compete with Steam and without something like Fortnight to pump it (and millions of dollars to pay publishers to give away free games).

But still, entertaining to watch from afar. Very afar.

I know some of you hire people - it seems like a lot of folks are now showing 1-24 months of gap in employment since their last job.

If you've hired people at the upper end of that, have you noticed any retention challenges?

I find myself wondering if a lot of those people are looking for one thing to 'get back in the game' and springboard to the next opportunity, or if the market has been so shit, that treating them well at all creates a lot more loyalty, in spite of the employment boom.

I think now is the time to get into crypto if you are going to. I think the market is bottoming out after the China news.

I honestly think it’s the same. We’re not hiring loads, but young whiz kid type people more likely to cut and run than olds, if you sponsor a visa they will stick, etc.

Also, the market is good now, at least for financial services. Can confirm as someone who just got a new job.
