Rumors that Amazon was looking into offering a live TV package as well, have now been confirmed.

Amazon creating live TV package - Business Insider
The rumor

confirmed.

No details on the pricing or offereings yet.

With Amazon getting into this arena, pushing the boundaries on retail, cloud services, etc. I really do wonder how large they can grow. As long as they keep their laser focus on customer service, speed and cost, I think they can do a lot.

I'm very glad I was able to buy a few shares a while back while it was trading in the $700's... or course, I wish I did this a year or two before when they were in the $400-500 range. Wow.

Today they hit $998/share ad are now hovering around $996.

Lots of swearing in this link. Worth reading if you have some downtime.

To be fair, some really nice promotions on that list and a handful that are simply advisers now which basically means they are retired except charge Millions for the occassional assistance on a project.

I'd imagine those positions are not too different than a young team winning the Super Bowl and all hitting free agency afterwards.

Finally got out of DAL after it dropped to around 48. Got a nice ride out of it.

Almost all of my holdings are in biotech and pharma, so it's been a bloody 3 months, but I am still in the green for most of them. Finally seeing them swing upwards.

Well the market needed cooling.... Interest rates won't be raised, however taxes will. Guess that's one way to cool it down. Thinking there will be more pain to follow.

Proxy vote for GME happening soon. If you own GME please register your shares. Even if you own just one for kicks.

As of April 15, the free float is 26.7 million shares. GameStop Insiders and Institutions own 43.3 million shares. This is according to GameStop in a recent filing.

So only 26.7 million shares should be the maximum limit of shares that retail could own.

I get a sense that retail may own a tad more than 26.7 million shares.

The SEC Director of Enforcement resigned today. About one week after being hired.

Interesting.

Right now some estimates say the float is 260 million shares. Meaning retail owns 260 million shares out of a possible 29.7 million (GameStop sold 3 million shares into the market since early April).

That means each share will eventually need to be covered by HFs 8 times over.

These hedge funds got so over confident that GameStop would go bankrupt. GameStop was in debt by hundreds of millions of dollars. Had a crap CEO in George Sherman. Complete brick and mortar business. And known for selling used games. All during what could be the worst global pandemic in our lifetime.

They since hired Ryan Cohen. Tossed out Sherman. Completely revamped their e-commerce business. Eliminated their debt 2 years early. And recently raised over a half billion dollars since. And now have a massive following.

This company isn’t going bankrupt.

Doesn't sound like the SEC commissioner is going to get in the way of the squeeze event. In fact, it sounds like she is outright saying she wants it to happen, and those guys knew the risks they were taking with their positions.
