Financial stuff from yesterday and today.

Memelords and bad photoshops.

A few of the world/economic news storylines that I've been following seem to have intertwined. Or at least the twines are quite close to each other.

It's been a busy week for F5 keys across the country. Monday morning greeted me with this:

It seems like everyone is on the lookout for catalysts and indicators. One of the recent ones was vehicle repossessions. Sure enough, that was a thing in 2008:

Footwear, Netflix, and a bad week for CPI and crypto.

Just in time for summer, the artificial turf went in and the terrace project is complete. Call it a veranda, call it a gazebo, call it an aviary, call it a beergarden, call it a baby corral, call it a baby thunderdome. Just don't call it unfinished, or we'll have to settle it in the baby thunderdome.

The major indices were on the rise at the end of June but sentiment seems to indicate that we're on a pretty significant downslope. Probably don't buy every dip.

Fog door

I hit the big one. Luckily this game is co-op so I didn't have to do it alone.

This is fine

A few weeks ago I talked about real estate, margin loans, and Elon Musk. I wasn't entirely convinced by a WSBer's assertion that we were headed for another real estate meltdown, though I think a market and real estate pullback is long overdue. Nothing has kerploded, but there's another chapter in this saga. (Fair warning: this post has plenty of other people's crude language and usernames.)

Investing, video gaming, internetting, parenting, learning - the usual.

This one is all about plateaus and precipices. And other things.

On repeat

Another variant, another Far Cry, another Cowboy Bebop, another L4D, another Nioh, another Mass Effect. Oh yeah, and I mentioned all of them last month. (What I'm saying is my post title is totally on point.)

After a covid year off, Friendsgiving returned to San Marcos where we squeezed eight families into a not-particularly-code-compliant VRBO. The last part isn't all bad; it meant there was a 30' waterslide and we could play Danger Pong.
Having a suit, sunglasses, and hair gel, I decided to celebrate another one of 2021's signature themes by costuming as the so-called WallStreetBets Fuckboy:

Let's start with the hardest-hitting item. Costco has a $200 handle of baijiu. I'm not sure if it's more shocking that someone decided bamboo liquor was worth importing or that there is a baijiu that costs more than 8 yuan.

Everything is cool

Breakthrough cases? Pshhh, this is fine. Right?
The WSB commentary went along the lines of, "this agreement is share dilution through a financial pawn shop, the hedgie just turns around and sells the stock on the open market". Kind of like what AMC did. It was also noted that the $400 million figure was calculated based on a share price substantially higher than $RIDE's current value.
There was a pretty on-point meta post yesterday, probably directed at $CLOV and $WISH apes:

Just buy SPY

Not really. Well, do what you want, this just a journal of investment adventures not a source of investment advice. The title is just a catchy way to talk about my mid-year report card and another fun chapter in the LMC saga.

Up and down

Well, we still don't have flying cars, but it looks like space tourism has finally arrived.
WSB dating advice, for a giggle.

Lambos or shambos

Big moves this week for the two tickers I've been following most closely. First, some (dark) giggles about a company I don't go near in any sense:

A lot going on in this one, here's a quick table of contents:

Bro, the humanity

So I previously talked about being a huge fan of vaporware and the figureheads that hype them. This weekend I even rounded out my '08 crash trilogy with its Enron prequel.

The Kevin Smith's Ankle Memorial Palapa has also received the apt nickname The Baby Stable. With the supporting structure built, the wall and roof materials arrived.

I tried to think of a better title - I really did. It's bad now, but in a couple years I'm going to say, "A portmanteau *and* that word we no longer use, spluh". But, like, that's what it was. Memorial Day weekend and then the memening of GME, AMC, and BB. There's no other way to describe it. I'm sorry but I will not apologize.

Risk mitigation

The backyard terraces need fencing. Since there are two terraces, it almost made sense to connect the two and create a verdana/gazebo/pergola/palapa over the middle terrace.
Also, Reddit banned the totally legit dude from my last post. Not to worry, others have stepped up to carry the banner. The bot comments are hilariously repetitive, translations provided in italics:

This guy no longer has to worry about covidd (spelled thusly: c-o-v-i-d-d, the extra 'd' is for a double dose of the Moderna).

Investment drama

The WSB v. hedgie class war briefly took a back seat last week as an unrelated institutional investor caused Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs to do a Margin Call LARP.
WSB has long been fanboys of Tesla/Elon and, since it's the internet, they like calling bullshit on things. So the Hindenburg piece was well-liked, contrary to the CNBC-propagated idea that WSB is totally against short sellers and just wants to take down hedgies.

I had put my max difficulty/evil plot arc Fire Emblem playthrough on ice so that I had something to do on flights and layovers for our Jamaica trip.

Failing miserably is something that everyone does from time to time. They either obsess over it or pretend to grow from it while quietly obsessing over it. Sometimes the fails aren't of the "I did the right thing and didn't succeed" flavor but more of the "I know better but still did it" flavor. The beginning of February has been pretty faily in kilroysville, but I see it as an opportunity to grow.

GME volume

Wednesday saw GME go mainstream after being largely contained in Reddit, financial news, and specific social media streams. The latter half of the week was all about the "retail traders who took on Wall Street". Chief among them is DFV himself:

Will Gamestop?

On Friday, Gamestop had rocketed to the 70s and closed the week more modestly. I decided to fomo in; if the millennial traders were going to yeet the rich, I had better join them in case I end up against the wall some day.

Today in the Financial Times of Kilroy: what the heck happened on Friday and what's going to happen Monday?
Just as importantly, so did /u/DeepFuckingValue, now a household name around WSB. So while retail activity has seemingly been pumping GME since December, this week got a little more crazy:
