    "They say you have to work hard to get ahead, but some are finding that you can work very little and still do pretty well. On Reddit, the “antiwork” subreddit is now one of the social network’s most active and engaged pages, after seeing explosive growth during the COVID-19 pandemic. It currently has more than 1.6 million users, up from 180,000 in October 2020. People post epic text and e-mail screenshots of quitting their jobs, but the real heroes are so-called “idlers” — those who stay in jobs doing the absolute minimum to get by while still collecting a paycheck....

    A Maryland mayor has been arrested and charged with distributing revenge porn online, prosecutors announced Monday. Andrew Bradshaw, the 32-year-old mayor of Cambridge on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, is accused of posting nude photos of a woman he was no longer in a romantic relationship with. Bradshaw posted the photos using multiple Reddit accounts he created using variations of the woman’s name and birthdate, according to a news release from the Office of the State Prosecutor. The photos were captioned with racial slurs and sexually explicit language and were posted in April and May, authorities said.

    Wall Street trading will never be the same again. This “thing” they call the meme stocks, the Reddit Army, the Robin Hood traders -- it's not a fad. It’s real. And it has only just begun to change Wall Street forever. What happened? In the last few years, the friction that used to benefit the powerful in the system of trading stocks has been eliminated. And on top of that, social media has become widely adopted and used by bajillions of people around the world. The way this has changed things requires us to look at the way things were...

    Last Friday (Jan, 22) we advised readers who thought they had missed the move in GameStop (they hadn't), to position appropriately in the most shorted Russell 3000 names which included such tickers as FIZZ, DDS, BBBY, AMCX, GOGO and a handful of other names, as it was likely that the short-squeeze was only just starting. We were right and all of the stocks listed above - and others - exploded higher the coming Monday, and all other days of the week, with results - encapsulated by the WallStreetTips vs Wall Street feud - that has become the top conversation piece...

    ...Citron was one of the Wall Street firms with a significant “short” position in GameStop, meaning his investment would have benefitted by a collapse of GameStop’s stock price, but Citron closed out its short position this week among the frenzy of buying and selling that has had the price move in wild gyrations between $100 and $500 a share. Earlier in the week, Left made a comment in the media that GameStop’s share price would eventually crash back down to $20 share — but it seems like he couldn’t afford to wait for that to happen and has taken a...

    The war between hedge funds and retail investors over shares of GameStop has one logical conclusion, according to executives and traders of a major Wall Street firm. Shares of GameStop, the video game retailer, have climbed more than 900% since the start of the year after members of the Reddit community WallStreetBets banded together in an effort to push the stock higher. The campaign pushed a stock worth $19 at the start of the year to as high as $482.85 on Thursday. Gains by retail investors have come at the expense of sophisticated investors like Melvin Capital and Citron Research,...

    Something happened related to the stock market yesterday that has everyone up in a frenzy this morning. I don’t really understand it all, but it involves Reddit, something called sub-Reddit and a group of day traders who assemble there, abusive hedge fund managers, short-selling, big tech oligarchs, NASDAQ and GameStop stock, which went way up during the day, but was driven back down in after hours trading. Naturally, at the end of the day, the Big Tech oligarchs took sides with the big-money hedge fund oligarchs and shut down the day-trader sub-Reddit group for allegedly saying bad things. Because that’s...

    Reddit’s army of retail traders might not have been only force behind the unprecedented GameStop rally that turned Wall Street upside down, new data show. GameStop was “notably absent” from the list of 10 stocks that retail investors bought the most in January despite the video-game retailer being at the forefront of a supposed market revolution, according to JP Morgan analysts. “Although retail buying was portrayed as the main driver of the extreme price rally experienced by some stocks, the actual picture may be much more nuanced,” Peng Cheng, the megabank’s head of machine learning strategies, wrote in a research...

    The Stock Market rebellion has been a recent dynamic that has gone after hedge fund managers who use a technique called the “short-sell.” The short-sell strategy makes money by reducing the price of stocks that they never actually owned. They “borrow” stocks from other people, sell them at a relatively higher price, then buy them back after they’ve tanked, give the stock back to the original owner with a fee, and keep the rest of the profit. They’re basically hyenas. Ben Shapiro made a great video explaining what is happening. You expect the hedge fund managers who are losing money...

    The media want to compare Reddit investors who outsmarted Wall Street hedge funds to the Capitol Hill rioters. This all part of the media freakout over the trading in GameStop and other stocks. The Wall Street Journal tweeted out an outrageous story, headlined “GameStop, Bitcoin and QAnon: How the Wisdom of Crowds Became the Anarchy of the Mob.” The tweet was insane: “What the gleeful anarchy of this week’s ‘stonks market’ had in common with the Capitol riot of Jan. 6.” The story read like an op-ed: “What’s happening on WallStreetBets is of a piece with other internet phenomena, from...
