This guy from WSB bought premarket peak. Loss porn rolling in. Wish I would have sold my 4600 shares at this amount, I didn’t even know it went this high. 🤪

This is what the RH interface looks like for $1 Put on GME on Feb 19th:

View attachment 332540

Can you explain what all of this means? Would I essentially be buying these shares to sell at $1 on Feb 19 and somehow I keep today’s profit?

That is not at all what that means. Your pic shows buying a put (A contract to sell a stock) . So in this case you are buying a contract to sell GME stock as a price of $17 (the strike) at expiration of Feb 2019. This would cost a dollar. Meaning the stock would have to drop to $16 or less at expiration to make a profit.

Many people trade options and sell them prior to expiration, so in your example it could go up in value as GME declines but by 2/19 it will only have intrinsic value if any left. IE is the stock below $17 or is it above. If it is even $0.01 above $17 then the value of this put is $0 and you lose 100% of your investment.

I mean, people shouldn't listen to Mark Cuban anyway. Similar to DeepFuckingValue and people saying "if he's in, I'm in."

Uh, he cashed out millions already. He's in a significantly different financial situation than you. If Mark Cuban throws a million into it and loses it all, he's still fucking rich. If DFV doesn't sell his remaining shares, he still never has to work again.

If dumbshit Redditor loses $50k, they might be living in their car next week.

Well, as far as I know, DFV never tried to position himself as an expert or a guru. Mark Cuban is here 2 weeks late, trying to pass off his wikipedia level knowledge of markets as some sort of deep guru insight.

What kind of capital/job does that DFV guy have that he was able to tie up $100k+ in a fucking meme trade play for like 1.5 years tho?

Mark Cuban is a grade A dumbass that landed himself by pure dumb luck on the right side of the dot com bubble.

He's a dick, but he's no dummy.

Feel like this with PSTH. It is up 40% (even more recently) and hasn't even had a rumor, let alone a target.
PSTH is truly all about Ackman and the underlying feeling he is going to pull a deal with Stripe.
