    If they were paying a dividend I could understand it a bit more, I just don't see the attraction in buying companies that have already basically already taken every inch of market they possibly can. I just struggle to see the upsides outweighing the downsides at the moment.

    Downside risks are mounting up, risk of general tech stock correction, clampdown on tax avoidance, competition regulators getting interested in breaking them up, general customer backlash again ****-taking multinationals.

    Loads of stocks out there that are a more appealing buy right now, imo! :)

    Looks like GME is taking off again for some reason...

    Didn't their CFO resign? Wonder if that has anything to do with it.

    Some people obviously think there's an opportunity to pull the suckers into another pump and dump! :D

    What makes you think more people lost than won from the last one out of interest.

    I kept a single share back just in case after the last sell off. I'll probably just get rid of it tomorrow if it's still green (96$).

    Deepfingvalue purchased another $2million worth of GME shares the other day when it was at around $36. Guy is a genius.
