Investor: Keith Gill

Investor, People

Keith Patrick Gill  (born June 8, 1986) is an American financial analyst and investor known for his posts on the subreddit r/wallstreetbets

His analyses of GameStop stock (and his resulting investment gains) posted on Reddit as DeepFuckingValue (DFV) and on YouTube and Twitter as Roaring Kitty were cited by many as a driving factor in the GameStop short squeeze of January 2021, and as a spark for the subsequent trading frenzy in retail stocks. The rising stock value allowed him to turn a US$53,000 investment into an investment worth close to $50 million, as of January 28, 2021.

Gill’s postings have been described as having “forthright, spreadsheet-laden content”,. His Reddit username is derived from the investing term deep value, as Gill is a proponent of value investing. Gill’s identity was revealed to the public by Reuters following an investigation of public records and social media posts on January 28, 2021.
