The BEST GameStop Timeline

GameStop Timeline

Welcome to the best GameStop timeline ever created. The following events have since taken place shortly after GameStop was identified as the next target company to be purposely bankrupted by financial entities.

Massive bets were placed, potentially worth billions and billions and even trillions of dollars, that GameStop would go bankrupt. (Read a better explanation)

At the start of the GameStop timeline, there should only exist around 77 million shares of Gamestop. It is widely speculated financial groups may have created and sold several billion phantom shares via naked shorting which will need to be bought back at whatever price investors are willing to sell.ย 

Hedge funds and financial investment groups at this point are starting to bleed millions and millions daily as they realize their plan to bankrupt GameStop is no longer a reality.

This timeline details the greatest story every told and will go down in history. Also, this type of event will never happen again!.

He also streams Youtube videos talking about how undervalued Gamestop is and why it is considered a "deep value" stock. He would later be questioned by the House Committee on Financial Services as to his motives. GameStop would eventually be labeled an "idiosyncratic risk" by Treasury's 2021 Annual Financial Stability Report. (As shown further in the timeline) after a series of congressional hearings.

Through a letter sent by RC Ventures, he informs Gamestop of its unique position and potential to become something much bigger. The actual letter from RC ventures can be read on the SEC site here.

Gamestop stock price goes up a few hundred dollars. It is immediately suspended from trading.
Gamestop stock price goes up a few hundred dollars. It is immediately suspended from trading.

Brokers immediately suspend and prevent Gamestop stock from further being sold. Considering that this is supposed to be a "free" stock market based on supply and demand, this should not happen. This creates more questions, concerns, and interest from investors around the world.

Forget Gamestop: The start of a massive news article campaign telling people to “Forget GameStop”. Dozens of articles will get published daily from this point on.

This will be a daily recurrence with hundreds and hundreds and possibly thousands of articles getting published telling people to "Forget GameStop".

As the start of thousands of “Forget GameStop” articles begin to get published over the course of the next few years along with hours and hours of media reporting on TV and online streaming platforms begging people to “Forget GameStop”, one Reddit user posts the following.

This makes a lot of sense. Why do they care so much? If it is garbage or a "bad buy", why does it matter? And who would investors even sell to if its such a bad stock? Just about during this time is when they start publishing thousands of articles from many different sources telling readers to "Forget GameStop"

The above is his reply to what he thinks will happen with these companies that were trying to bankrupt GameStop and placed "all in" type bets that GameStop would fail (go bankrupt).

Chairman of major stock trading platform (IBKR) states there would have been “FULL SYSTEMATIC COLLAPSE” if GameStop was not removed from trading in the stock market.

His is referring to the event that happened on January 28th, 2021 where a restriction was placed on GameStop that prevented it from freely trading in the stock market.

Investors have been getting offered money to post negatively about GameStop.

In an all out attempt at physiological warfare, there are hundreds of articles being published daily, and many youtubers, influencers, and regular investors have come forward that they have been offered money to post negatively about GameStop.

Investors transfer shares from certain brokers to Fidelity.

After determining which brokers were mostly involved in the coordinated move that prevented investors from trading Gamestop, investors start transferring shares from brokers such as Robin Hood, Webull, etc. and move them to Fidelity. Fidelity CEO posts a video specifically thanking Gamestop investors for their support and go on to say they have increased support and personnel.

This further cements to the fact shares are not safe with any broker. An investor who wants to protect their assets should have the shares directly registered under their name to prevent any misuse or wrongdoing. Direct Registration of Shares is the only way to protect assets.

This was speculated to happen for a few months prior to it being officially announced.

Less than 15 days after Ryan Cohen becomes official chairman of the company, Gamestop is considered an idiosyncratic risk by the Treasury and DTCC. The term "idiosyncractic" can mean peculiar, unusual, or one of a kind.

For some time now there have been discussions about whether it is better to have shares in a broker such as Fidelity, or Gamestop’s official transfer agent, Computershare.
For some time now there have been discussions about whether it is better to have shares in a broker such as Fidelity, or Gamestop’s official transfer agent, Computershare.

Transfer agent ComputerShare is the official record keeper of shares for many companies including Wal-Mart, McDonalds, Jack in the Box, Gamestop, and many more. Rather than going through a 3rd party (broker) to obtain shares, investors can have the shares directly registered under their name via transfer agent. For Gamestop, this would Computershare. As the official record keeper of shares for Gamestop, this means Computershare is the only entity that can provide an exact count of directly registered shares.

Computer chair sounds awfully similar to Computershare. Some individuals post links to sources which seem to indicate there is litigation risk or lawsuits at stake if a company encourages their shareholders to Directly Register their shares. Aside from the fact the financial groups trying to originally bankrupt Gamestop have lost hundreds of MILLIONS by now, and still have BILLIONS and the possibly TRILLIONS of dollars at stake, the GameStop chairman is being awfully careful with what he says.

Cellar boxing strategy used to purposely bankrupt companies is discovered and posted.

The why and how of how hedge funds make billions by purposely driving stock price down and causing companies to bankrupt is discovered and posted. The basic idea is to borrow as many shares as possible from the target company, sell those shares, and once the company goes bankrupt those shares never have to be repaid or rebought. It is essentially an infinite money glitch. This strategy wasย  originally posted back in 2004 and describes how big money such as hedge funds purposely drives down price of stock of a target company and makes billions in the process.

Investors seem to have fully embraced the idea of Directly Registering their shares with Computershare

The consensus seems to be that no shares are safe with any broker, including popular brokers such as Fidelity. All brokers, thru their partnerships and agreements, use investor's shares to loan or create phantom (rehypothecated) shares. By this time, Gamestop has been one the most bought stocks in certain brokers that share this data including Fidelity and Commsec. It is widely speculated (with good reason) the entire amount of publicly available stocks for GameStop have been purchased by now, however millions and millions of stocks have been trading every day. There is discussion about an event where In March of…

And they have already started doing it and will continue doing so through the following years.

Discussion re-surfaces about a guy who bought 100% of shares (1.1M shares) in a traded company. The next two days that same stock traded 50 million times and dropping the price 99% in two hours. All this with LITERALLY NO SHARES AVAILABLE TO BORROW OR SHORT.

The man in question did not Direct Register his shares. He purchased only through a broker. This helps cement the fact that Direct Registration of shares is indeed the only true way to own shares that protect the investor.

Forget GameStop: Just a handful of the hundreds of articles posted through the 2021 year. Suddenly so many different companies care about what investors do with their money.

Investors wonder why news and media platforms care so much about what they do with their money. In a market where statistically most investors lose and nobody ever cares, suddenly just about every major media platform is concerned about what investors do with their money.

Initial reports claimed it was caused by a falling shelf. It is speculated this storage facility housed financial documents that may or may not be related to entities or banks connected to Gamestop. This facility promoted itself as storing your most important items inside "highly secure", "climate controlled," and "fire-protected facilities."

Never in the history of investing has there been a bigger movement of educating and informing investors about the importance of direct registration of shares. Typically, shares are usually held in brokers, such as Fidelity, Robin Hood, etc (Sort of like keeping your valuables in a cheap storage facility). By direct registrating shares, users become 100% owners of their shares and there is no middle man involved (This would be like taking your valuables out of the cheap storage facility and putting it in your high secure vault at home where nobody else can touch them).

Hedge Fund Collapse: Melvin Capital
Hedge Fund Collapse: Melvin Capital

The firm lost billions of dollars and eventually collapses as it scrambled to cover its bets against the video game retailer GameStop.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (who should be helping regulate a fair market) creates and uploads a video mocking retail investors for investing in GameStop.

The organization in charge of making sure the stock market is fair and transparent for everyone is now going as far as making fun of investors who are buying GameStop stock. Some investors see this an attempt to dissuade future investors or to convince current investors to sell. Either way, for the SEC to be mocking investors from ANY stock is something unheard of. This is like a store manager openly making fun of their own customers who keep buying their most popular product and trying to convince them not to.

There are 2 main ways investors can hold shares in Computershare. One is DIRECT STOCK PLAN, and the other is in BOOK. The Heat Lamp theory suggest shares held in DIRECT STOCK PLAN allow the DTC to manipulate shares and price. Also, even having just 1 fraction of a share allows for ALL the shares in the account to be compromised or used for ill intent. The concensus is to sell all fractional shares and convert all Direct Stock Plan type shares to BOOK only.

An investment management group that is supposed to help individuals manage their shares held in retirement accounts, announces they will no longer allow GameStop shares to be direct registered. In fact, they actually say they will go so far as to “de register” the previously registered shares.

This is unprecedented. Why would they be so against the direct registration of shares? The media keeps saying it is a terrible investment and talks about how "bad" everything is at GameStop. Yet they go so far as to un-register and de-register some of the previously registered shares.

Some of these alleged financial groups may be on the hook for possibly BILLIONS of GameStop shares that were borrowed and sold, but never originally purchased. It is speculated they will need to be purchased at some point, although currently, it seems they have an infinite amount of time to purchase them. (Even tho they were sold).

This is something individual investors have been saying for for a year or longer. With so many ways to hold shares, there is only 1 true way to hold shares directly registered under your name. There is speculation the SEC released this bulletin due to certain hedge funds making an attempt to remove the current SEC Chairperson - Gary Gensler. This could be interpreted as direct confirmation from the SEC that investors have been right all long.

This meeting has absolutely NOTHING to do with GameStop. It is supposed to be about proposed rules for a fairer market. What could possibly be the reason for arguing against those rules and even go so far as to mention GameStop? As far as the thousands of media articles and newscasts are concerned, GameStop is not a threat. In fact plenty of news articles have specifically said GameStop is worthless and even go so far as to tell readers to sell their GameStop stock or suggest it is a terrible investment.
