Is it time for "I got the vaccine brag thread" thead?  I want to see when my IRL friends are getting the jab.

it's certainly not something i would brag about considering how many olds still haven't gotten it
Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think anyone on the board has been pushing olds out of the way.

pretty much anyone can get vaccinated that wants to right now, that wasn't my point

Trim is dumpster diving for one in Seattle, I’m sure he is not pleased to hear this.

Jans is not above the burn it down threshold IMO

You can't burn what is already burned.

There are still operable sinks in the fOOD that remain unbroken

I wonder how the Reddit bros feel about lining the pockets of Wall Street with this GME play.


yeah, WSJ had a piece about it and they had some bigs go off the record with them that they are certainly playing this thing. at the end of the day someone will be left holding the bag once all the shorts are out.

I figured we were all being a bit tongue in cheek that it was retail investors vs institutions on this one.  Pretty sure rival hedge funds just cut their competitors throats and the WSB people were perfect cover.

Is this doing irreparable damage to the underlying credibility of the stock markets? I would think the SEC would be shitting bricks right now. It basically confirms groups of people on social media platforms can have their way with individual stocks.

I don't believe it to be true, but I have heard that someone representing K-State is already contacting agents of potential candidates.

Two sources?

The SEC should drop all other lawsuits pending and throw the book at these Wall Street bets dudes

Yea stock options in April 2020 or whenever they would have been paid out for 2019 around that time could be huge windfalls if sold in the last few days.


I'm guessing they're outside of their trading window and can only sit and watch.

Isn’t the trading window 2 days after earnings gets reported and then lasts 30 days?
They reported Q3 earnings December 8. not sure if their holiday numbers release they just had opens a new window or not.

Yea not sure, I can’t imagine seeing that number in an account and not being able to pull the trigger.

But isnt the point of shorting that the price is going to crash?

Yea but you have a relatively short time window for that to happen.  These stock bros are basically keeping the price high long enough to force a call on that short position.  Shorting is borrowing shares basically.

billionaire hedge funders.

I think they will be the market based losers in this scenario.

I tried to think about which side I would put my own money on. (1) I don't think these dudes below are going to want to back down at all - especially after already going in for a couple billion. (2) This is what they do. (3) They have billions more at their disposal.

Steve Cohen's Point 72, Ken Griffin's Citadel, and other partners are plowing a total of $2.75 billion into Melvin Capital, the hedge funds said on Monday. They will receive non-controlling revenue shares in Melvin in return for their money.

Because they tweeted this out,  I'm assuming we're done? If they are done here there will only be 19 players in this class, 6 scholarships short of what's allowed.

No sir 3 more.  Whoever else they land won’t be here for spring ball though.

Who are the other three? They announced 14 on early signing day, and these five transfers.

They plan to take 3 more transfers.  Also I believe they have Hadley Panzer as a counter for this year.
