I feel you there, my 401k accounts are hurting. Well, I may be the least qualified person to explain this, but I will do my best in the time I have. But I know there are way better resources and players who will do this better justice.

I was told to not buy GME from the brokers, and instead buy direct through ComputerShare. It’s a DRS, which is I believe like buying stock directly, and not through a 3rd party (fuckery can ensue when using apps like Robinhood, TDA, etc..). When I did this, it took almost a week to actually clear.

So the whole gist of GME is it will bring the hedgies down because they manipulate the market immensely, and GME was the major target of concentrated shorts. Because the Ape army has been super motivated, they have created a position, through the purchase of mass GME shares, that the hedgies will never be able to cover their shorts.

When this occurs (MOASS - mother of all short sales), supposedly, the share price for GME will rocket “to the moon.”

Once again, I reiterate, I’m nothing but a simple pede who took a few hours to do some research. I would certainly never give any investment advice. As with any stock, you never spend what you are uncomfortable with losing. If I lose a few hundred, it was worth the entertainment.


First you have to register for an account, which takes a few days of waiting. Then once your account is active, you can purchase stocks. Like I said, it does take time once you purchase the stocks for you to actually own the stocks - time delay due to the fact that it’s DRS. So you may purchase at $35, for example, and by the time it clears, it could be $30 or alternatively $50. Just a chance you take.

Once again, I know nothing, haha.

Best of luck GaMErs.
