Watch Roaring Kitty Live:

Update (1259ET):

To sum up the bizarre broadcast: Roaring Kitty is betting on GameStop CEO Ryan Cohen's turnaround with options that expire in two weeks.

... actually agree with Ross Gerber for once.

GameStop now plunging 40% today. At some point people will realize they are getting worked over by GameStop/Ryan Cohen. This pump has allowed $GME to dump 120 mil shares on the public. No question they wouldn’t have been able to do this without the Kitty. 🐈‍⬛

Here's a great take.

It’s fine to “bet on management” but why would pay a premium for that? Every investment is a bet on management…

— Martin Shkreli (e/acc) (@MartinShkreli) June 7, 2024

And that is a very good question.

Good question

Update (1157ET):

Roaring Kitty will have some serious explaining regarding his investment thesis in GameStop during the 1200 ET live-streaming event on YouTube.

'Meme' stock trader Keith Gill's (aka Roaring Kitty) latest pump was situated around GMECEO Ryan Cohen announcing another at-market equity offering (impeccable timing) - set to dump tens of millions of shares on Reddit momentum traders. Also,first-quarter earnings were messy, withsharp revenue declines in the first quarter.

Again, what's the thesis here?

Meanwhile, GME shares have nearly been halved from the premarket highs following GME's at-market equity offering announcement and dismal earnings report.

Ahead of the live-streaming event, over 200,000 people are tuning in to hear Roaring Kitty speak.

Redditors and momentum chasers are being led into a burning building by 'meme' stock trader Keith Gill's (aka Roaring Kitty) on the latest pump asGameStop shares erase overnight gains following the announcement of sharp revenue declines in the first quarter and an"at-the-market offering" program to sell more shares.

The grift continues:

Let's begin by describing the source of the latest pump.Roaring Kitty's YouTube live event,slated for 1200ET, was announced on Thursday afternoon, which sent shares doubling from around $26 in cash session to as high as $66 in after-hours trading.

In premarket trading, shares were above the $60 handle, then crashed 40% to around $38 following the news that GME filed anat-the-market offering to sell 75 million shares of the company's Class A common stock.

Jefferies is the 'Sales Agent' on the deal.

Earlier, GME reportedfirst-quarter results showing net sales of881.80 million, down from $1.237 billion year over year. Net sales missed Wall Street'sconsensus estimate of $995.30 million.

GME also reported an EPS loss of 12 cents, missing the average estimate of 9 cents.According to Reuters, this misshighlights customers' shift to online video games and collectibles, while the retailer continued to rely on its brick-and-mortar stores.

Just weeks ago, during another pump by Gill,GME announcedit sold 45 million shares of common stock for about $933.4 million. CEO Ryan Cohen is effectively using Gill's pumps to dump millions of shares into mom-and-pop retail, chasing momentum.

momentum chasers are literally giving their money to Ryan Cohen

— zerohedge (@zerohedge) June 7, 2024

At 1200 ET, Gill will have to re-explain his investment thesis in GME, as first-quarter earnings show a sharp decline, and Cohen is dumping endless shares.

Meanwhile, reports suggest thatETrade might take action against Gill,and at least one securities regulator is currently investigating him for potential stock manipulation.
