As I continue to read more and more articles about the GameStop stock rise and trading debacle, I occasionally find an article that provides a slightly different perspective. Such is the case with an article written by Forbes reporter Antoine Gara entitled “How GameStop and An Army of Reddit Traders Exposed The Riskiest Market in Decades.”
I connected with a friend, Dr. Michael Driscoll, to discuss the GameStop situation, specifically as it relates to selling a stock short. Dr. Driscoll is the former dean of the Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business at Mt. St. Mary’s University.
One of the best summaries that I read of the increase in value of GameStop stock last week was from Wall Street Journal reporter Jason Zweig. Mr. Zweig’s was by no means the only article written about the subject. I found nine GameStop articles published over the past three days on Forbes.com and assume many more are on the Wall Street Journal site.
