Can we learn anything from how this hedge fund made $700 million dollars on the GameStop (GME) stock? Yes. Yes there sure is! Thanks to an article from CNBC, we get to see a bit more behind the curtains of what this hedge fun was thinking in regards to its trade on GME. I am a big believer in learning from exceptional situations, and I would hope we can all agree that making $700 million dollars on a single stock is pretty exceptional! Whether you are a beginner to the world of stocks and the stock market or someone like myself, who has years of experience, there are several learning lessons that need to be learned (or be reminded of). I love the stock market and am always looking to keep my skills and understanding as sharp as possible. The good news here is these learning lessons are nothing complicated. They are actually all very basic and quite anti-climatic. With that being said, oftentimes the more basic a learning lesson, the less it is actually used and applied within the real world of trading and investing. GME and it’s shareholder base, unfortunately, are a perfect example of what I mean. This hedge fun did the exact opposite of what many GME shareholders have been doing and they were rewarded for it in a big way. As is the case with many things in life, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. You just need to take notice of what other successful people are doing and model your own actions after those. Let’s learn from how this hedge fund made a killing on GameStop’s stock!
