WSO's r/WSB

With r/WSB battling Wall street and winning, its time that we unite!  We cannot let these fools move the market anymore, we run this bish.

They haven't paid their dues, we have. 

They haven't done the research, we have.

They have stimulus, we have trusts.  

While these r/WSB boys aren't smart if left unchecked they present danger to the firms we worship. 

As most robinhood boys don't know what WSO is, this is a perfect place to unite and collaborate. Collectively, we can send these clowns back into permanent hybernation, and let our own bull loose again. 

Time to right the ship.

With that said, lets use this as a form to present trade idea's and attack together.

If WSB had the people of WSO, we could probably even topple governments with financial pressure. Wonder how CITGO has been doing lately.

Strong disagree, WSB thrives through the sheer madness of it. A bunch of undergrad and recent Econ majors could never manifest the fervor required for this level of power, they have far too much "proper knowledge." It's the midwit dilemma, you would know better than to waken the beast but not enough to tame him.

Ngl, I repositioned about 5% of my portfolio to be spread across WSB related stocks. (GME, BB, MMC, Nokia, express, etc...). Rest of my portfolio is pretty solid value-based investments I'll hold on for years so whatever. 

Some of them have good fundamentals, some of them don't but essentially my risk is spread across bunch fo these different ones. My hypothesis is that at least one will be a unicorn but there is a significant chance that I might be wrong and they all move similarly (tank or skyrocket). I'm seriously hoping this is a venture capital move.

Let's not forget to give love to the other stocks. Do diversify just a little.

Nokia is still one of the big names in telecom infrastructure and network related devices. 

This business is very solid and it's a fairly slow moving industry without lots of competition nor new entrants. Pretty cushy business if you ask me. 

Admittedly, Nokia is playing around with things like IoT and VR but they haven't made much breakthrough in those areas. But they have a good R&D and engineering culture + management know-hows. They just need to find their new niches and odds are they'll make a pretty significant comeback the way Sony did.

1 word of caution. Please please please, Actually try to make good investments/speculations.

Don't just "pump" up things for no reason. You'll be signing your own grave if you do that.

That's actually a financial crime called "pump and dump". The exchanges are on your side WSB for now (all your trades are making Nasdaq and NYSE bunch of $$$) but if all you're doing is getting hundreds of thousands of people to commit financial crimes then even the exchanges will disavow you. Exchanges have strong ties with regulators and they can stay as strong allies or be your worst nightmare.

I really want WSB to succeed and show that free market capitalism works by putting the powerful oppressors in their places. Please don't kill your own movement.

Glad to hear. Just be cautious of how the public perceives your actions. 

In a sense, left wing mass can love you for "average people democratically kicking the powerful cronies in their asses". Right wing people can love you for fulfilling the true promises  of free market capitalism. The regular American mass can love you for practicing freedom, espousing American liberty, and standing up against the big man oppressing you.

You guys made my day today. Average people winning the real promises of free market capitalism and kicking crony capitalism in the ass.

I don't think that you can even really say that they decided to "pump" GME for no reason. Clearly there was a thesis, and clearly it's playing out the way they intended. Chamath said it best on CNBC today, this is basically just a distributed momentum trading strategy with a turnaround tailwind in the case of GME with the new board members and rising Ecommerce sales. They targeted stocks with oversized short interest because there would be an outsized impact of momentum factors once crossing clearly defined thresholds where shorts would have gotten in. It's honestly both retarded and genius at the same time.

But you're right, we do have to be careful with being associated with P&Ds. Especially with exchanges as on edge as they probably are currently.

Absolutely. It's really a rhetoric game. Essentially it'd come down to winning hearts and minds of people.

For now, the exchanges LOVE the retail investors. Nasdaq just had an earnings call today and their profits are through the roof thanks to all the retail investors.

Since Covid, retail investment scene soared and all the stock exchanges broke records on trading volume multiple times this year. 

As long as the public is on the side of WSB, they might actually win.

Brings me to tears just thinking about the little guys/the oppressed triumphing over the big guys/the oppressors. Something beautiful about that most human beings can love.

I'm not selling until I can buy a rocket ship 🚀🚀🚀

I'm not touching anything associated with WSB, but I find it amusing and fascinating to watch.

 

I wonder how this will impact stimulus check negotiations and debates - I would think there would be much more reluctance to send in helicopter money just for a bunch of Reddit meme trolls to blow up the markets again with their cash infusion.

 

It's almost as if every shitty fiscal policy decision of the last 13 years, but the last year in particular, has finally come home to roost.

I don't get it, why are people saying they're blowing up the market? They're blowing out the sphincters of a couple hedge funds that got greedy trying to force a retailer into bankruptcy. Smart money and "hedge" funds need to earn their name otherwise what the hell are they being paid for?

Agreed on the point about this being a culmination of shitty policy coalescing into one giant "fuck you" to Wall Street. It's been fun to watch.

I don't think WSB is blowing up the market but their actions help shitty companies with fat cat execs making money since their salary is tied to stock options. A company doesn't go bankrupt because it's stock is worthless, it goes bankrupt due to mismanagement (engorging on debt), bad luck (covid crushing cash flow), etc so Melvin and other funds weren't really hurting the company so much as other investors which take that as you will. Likewise companies like Hert which saw a run up in share price post bankruptcy will still do layoffs and screw normal folks while execs get bailed out, mostly rich investors get bailed out, and some folks on WSB who invested that sold out got a fat return. Melvin kinda had it coming when you take a small cap company with expensive shorts as is and then you decide to short even more, poor risk management.

"good fundamentals"  --- your good fundamentals are to get bailed out by US, the taxpayers who actually do work that provides services to make people's lives better.

They haven't paid their dues, we have.   ...working with tools nobody else used to have is the only key;  now that we have tools half as good; we're killing you.

They haven't done the research, we have.  ---  HA!!!   ...you people think value isn't what people are willing to pay for something, rather, some algorithm you don't even understand and couldn't do on paper;  yet we can.  We wrote your software.

They have stimulus, we have trusts.  --  Rich little weak weenies;  that's why people are going out of their way to CRUSH you guys.  it will be worth it even if I lose 50 grand.

Yikes on the original post.

 

I know everyone else in here is memeing, but id seriously love a trading subforum or something like that on this site. Or someone make a /r/wsowsb . I love the WSB DD but it's gotten so overrun that its near impossible to filter through the spam and blatant shilling. 

 

Trades - got in AMC in the 4s and out in 16s, in PLTR calls since mid 20s. Rest Of PA is in usual SPY/TQQQ/ and the ARKS

Shorting is a loser's game unless you're in the top 1%. Amen to that

I'll just stay long, if anything benefit from a retail frenzy (at worst, neutral impact over a 5-10yr horizon)

I love a little chaos like the next guy, but just curious why are so many people on THIS site saying, "yeah they had it coming" or "lets battle wall street."

At the risk of MOUNDS of MS thrown this way, aren't WE the ones they are battling? Most of the users here either work on Wall Street or wish to. Every other post on this site is about breaking in HF/IB/PE. If they lose (they as in wall street) that would kinda be a loss for some of us lol.
