Beyond Bed Bath & Beyond

2022-08-19 19:14:45.506535+02 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

So the headline reads Student, 20, makes $110 million trading meme stock Bed Bath & Beyond, somewhere else I read that he raised $25M from friends and family to start his company, but... Obviously, as the stock has crashed back down, there wasn't value created there, which means the money he "made" is essentially extracted from Redditors playing meme games.

Which kinda feels a lot like cryptocurrencies: on the one hand it's hard to feel bad for people burned by a moral hazard, on the other hand....

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
