Holy Shit.

*I wrote this piece late last night, and since then, well, shit’s gone wild wild. GameStop is now up over 150% today including after-market trading, the price currently sits at $218, it was at $17 on January 8th. Elon pumped it, Chamath pumped it, and the float is still short over 130%.
