Trying to time bottoms is very hard. If you believe in the company long term I feel this price is a very strong entry point long term. Set it and forget for a while. When it doubles....take your

I will make a wager. If this stock hits $420.69 before this earnings call on March 31st, I will pass out 100 FBG subscriptions to the gents in the stock thread.

Like your recommendations.  You guys cover sectors (commodities) I know so little about that I usually stay away.  Just out of curiosity, what's the initial buy-in to be a client of yours?   I'm not looking to diversify out just yet, but its something I think about for down the road.

Big rise on crazy small volume.  On my watch list.  Thanks.

Thanks GB, I appreciate that.  We are definitely eclectic.  

We can only cater to accredited investors, so that rules out a wide pool of people.  But of course, not FBGs who are just BIG ballers!

Why this Short Seller Rule is important for Gamestop:

1. It forces shorts to short on an uptick.

2. It will be in place the rest of today and all of tomorrow.

It essentially makes it way harder to short literally greenlighting GME through Thursday's close.

It comes off Friday so don't be surprised if Friday finishes in the red. If the stock behaves like the last few weeks, Thursday makes an attractive exit point (and Friday is a great buy in point because the calls will need to be covered in +3 days starting on Monday).

In the perfect scenario, Friday drops 10% from the Thursday close, which would trigger Monday as an SSR day as well.

Good luck all. The road will likely be rocky, but I think this trade is setting up nicely.

On the one hand, this Roblox game has turned my 3 little kids into zombies who have started using the sort of colorful language that would have resulted in my dad putting Tabasco Sauce on my tongue.  We have to limit their iPad time and remind them that calling your sibling a "Damn Dumb Stupid F" isn't the sort of thing that will endear you to teachers or other parents.

On the other hand, this thing consumes millions of kids just like them that given their druthers, would play this 24/7 and make George Carlin blush with their language.  

And really, I don't even know what the appeal is.  It's like Minecraft, which I also didn't understand.  I know they can get gift cards to Roblox to spend money on.....things, but I still have a confuse.

Roblox is our kid's generation of Facebook.  $30B valuation will seem small in 5 years.  Maybe 3... 

 

Isn't it just a game that they will eventually stop playing as they get older?  And then they'll eventually join facebook and see riveting things like what is bothering Aunt Nancy today.

The youngsters aren’t on Facebook. They think, and are right, that it’s for the olds.

My kids, nieces and nephews, have no desire to be on Facebook with their mom and grandma, and also make fun of Aunt Nancy behind her back on Roblox.

In on Roblox at $70....best I could do. At least now I know when I give my kid a $1 for that crap I'm getting back $0.0000000000000001% of that. Suck it kid!

a gaming platform for kids. Its online so you can use most devices to play it. Its never ending (unlike our games where you gotta beat a final boss) and the kids buy into their currency for things like character upgrades, cars and stuff.

RBLX in at $69.  Was late getting my order in at I have that juvenile sense of humor.  Only 10 shares though as I'm small time in my Etrade account.

funny shenanigans here. Halt so they can load in more short attacks. Those of us that have been tracking the volume know this is a mirage. Wake me up on 3/22. The clearing houses don't want to bridge the buy/sell prices anymore. People are waking up to the inevitable. If they drive it low enough, I am a buyer.

Yup

I saw it was an ATH and I stopped myself. I've learned since April not to buy at ATH. Things always go down. Definitely keeping an eye on it.

Here is a stupid noob question.  I'm using Fidelity Active Trader Pro and am viewing the charts in OHLC.  During the last hour or so, the GME bars are spiking all the way up into the 300's when the open and close marks on each bar are in the mid 200s.  Tell dummy what this means please.

Excess ain't rebellion.
You're drinking what they're selling.
Your self-destruction doesn't hurt them.
Your chaos won't convert them.

They're so happy to rebuild it.
You'll never really kill it.
Yeah, excess ain't rebellion.
You're drinking what they're selling.

I genuinely believe it will always have a higher floor than it would otherwise - it will basically be a mascot stock for many like Disney or the Green Bay Packers

Not to halt momentum here, but I've made mention a time or two that we have been working hard on a deal to help bring a private helium company public the last 2 years and have a large position in this company.  Helium  gas is in constrained supply (and has been since the last BLM auction of 2018) and demand continues to increase via tech, semiconductors, medical, space exploration just to name a few.  

There are very few ways to play helium currently.  Not my first mention of this one, but if you're a gambler and like stocks priced at a buck and change, you can do worse than Desert Mountain Energy which has some helium deposits in Arizona. Priced at a $1.85 in the US under DMEHF.  I'd be happy to discuss offline if anybody had more interest.  

There is also Royal Helium and American Helium, but those are hard passes for me/us.  These might also do well once the helium market is galvanized by what we're working on in a 'rising tide lifts all boats' sort of way, but my money is on DMEHF if you're intrigued enough to play this gas.  

Cap made a good point, lets not let this get lost in the shuffle of tendies

In $RBLX at $64.50 God help us all

Im in for a medium-ish position with a cost basis of like $67.  I got 64.50 at the open and bought twice that at 69.73.  I think this is a long hold.  I also dont mind averaging down if it dips in a few months.

H and L are the opposite ends of the actual session range (300s for GME) while O and C represents simply the open and close ends of a session (200s). The session time range is arbitrary based on your setting.

I am going to wait on RBLX.  Most of these big IPOs lately have been their cheapest a week or two after IPO (ABNB, SNOW, U, DASH, PLTR, etc) before eventually ripping.

I am OK missing it though because my kids are still into Minecraft so I won't score any cool points with them for owning it.

I’m pretty sure I’m flipping mine today. I have $U which is similar and I like it better anyway.

Agree.  If it drops in the coming weeks I will continue to increase my position.  However, if it goes up, I doubt I will add.  I had a bunch of FOMO on this as I believe in the product and dont mind paying a premium to get in early.

Hmmmmm.  That mostly makes sense. But doesn't seem to fit what I'm seeing.  Thanks though!

it might look funny for GME today because of the halted sessions, my 5 minute chart was stuck showing wrong amounts for awhile. generally this is what's called the candlestick chart because the main bar (candle) is the open and close of a session and the thin line (the wick) is the actual high and low of that session assuming the high and low were outside of the open and close. If the high and the low were inside the open and close range, then you'd only see the candle and not the wick.

Man I'm so old...

I'm reading about RBLX and how it's the 2nd most watched videogame on YouTube.  30 billion views last year (Minecraft had 100B).  I just don't get how kids would enjoy watching others play a game.  I literally got into fights with buddies because they were taking too long of turns on Genesis.  When I was a kid I would rather clean my room instead of watching someone else play and I couldn't.

I'm staying away from Rblx. It's a game and kids will flock to the next big thing. It was huge in 2016 and only came back because of the pandemic. 

I dunno man.....I have 5 kids and I've seen the likes of Minecraft and Pokeman and others.  This is different.  It just is.
