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. Continue reading “Investor: Keith Gill”

SEC Suspends Trading In 15 Companies Due To “Questionable Trading And Social Media Activity”

TYLER DURDEN, 26 February 2021

Two weeks ago we said that the regulatory crackdown against WallStreetBets had begun when the SEC suspended trading in pennystock Spectra Science (SCIE). Well, today we got the clearest confirmation yet that the SEC will do everything in its power to make sure that are no more Melvin Capitals and will seek to put a resolute end to the reddit bull raids when it announced that it “suspended trading in the securities of 15 companies because of questionable trading and social media activity.”

Today’s order states that trading is being suspended because of “questions about recent increased activity and volatility in the trading of these issuers, as well as the influence of certain social media accounts on that trading activity.” In enforcing the suspension, the SEC referred to federal securities laws, according to which “the SEC can suspend trading in a stock for 10 days and generally prohibit a broker-dealer from soliciting investors to buy or sell the stock again until certain reporting requirements are met.”

SEC Data Show $359 Million of GameStop Shares Failed to Deliver

Brandon Kochkodin, Bloomberg, 17 February 2017

  • GameStop surged more than 1,700% before curbs were implemented
  • More than 2 million shares failed to deliver at peak of mania

“Fails-to-deliver can occur for a number of reasons on both long and short sales,” reads a disclaimer on the SEC website. “Therefore, fails-to-deliver are not necessarily the result of short selling, and are not evidence of abusive short selling or ‘naked’ short selling.”

Comment: The SEC is full of shit and a RICO organization complicit in Class A felonies enabled by the Department of Justice and the Senate Banking Committee. For the slow learners, start with the Cartoons.

Here Are The Prepared Remarks For Tomorrow’s “Game Stopped” Hearings

Tyler Durden, 17 February 2021

On Thursday, the House Financial Services Committee will convene its planned hearing on the Gamestop trading fiasco, where the heads of Citadel, Robinhood, Reddit and Melvin Capital will come together to face off against Democrats like Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters and AOC.

Ahead of that, some of the planned testimonials have been released.

Below, find remarks from Keith Gill, a Youtuber/Redditor best known as “RoaringKitty”. In his testimony, the trader- who is facing a lawsuit related to his trading and online antics – insists that he still believes in his “fundamental case” for being long Gamestop, and insists he didn’t try and pump the shares purely for his own profit.

Here’s what to expect at the congressional hearings on GameStop and Robinhood

Scum sucking sack of shit lawmakers will seek to make headlines, not legislation — and all the witnesses are probably RICO eligible!

Exposing The Robinhood Scam: Here’s How Much Citadel Paid To Robinhood To Buy Your Orders

Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, 14 February 2021

Frankly, we’ve had it with the constant stream of lies from Robinhood and neverending bullshit from the company’s CEO, Vlad Tenev.

With Tenev scheduled to testify on Thursday, alongside the CEOs of Citadel, Melvin Capital and Reddit, the apriori mea culpas have started to emerge – if a little too late – the former HFT trader spoke late on Friday on the All-In Podcast hosted by Chamath Palihapitiya, who had strongly criticized Robinhood over the trading restrictions, and Jason Calacanis, a Robinhood investor, and said that “no doubt we could have communicated this a little bit better to customers.”

Reddit day traders wanted to beat Wall Street to prove the system is rigged. Instead, they did it by losing.

Tyler Sonnemaker , 04 February 2021

Keith Gill, the day-trading member of the Reddit group Wall Street Bets who is widely credited with igniting the recent GameStop trading frenzy, claimed in late January that he had turned his $54,000 investment into a $48 million fortune.

Days later, it had been sliced by more than half to $22 million, and regulators had set their sights on Gill, investigating him over potential disclosure violations.

Article: GameStop Isn’t a Popular Uprising

Article - Media

Robert J. Shapiro | 21.02.03

The investors’ struggle over the video game retailer GameStop has been cast as a David versus Goliath story. Allegedly, this is the tale of scrappy, small online day traders buying shares of a beleaguered company to thwart a hedge fund scheme to take it down. Like GameStop’s stock, this narrative is mostly speculation because the facts about the buyers and sellers and their trades are hidden in the records of Robinhood, the new online trading platform, as well as Charles Schwab and other traditional broker-dealers. Only the SEC could demand to inspect those records.
