To the thousands of #reddit #daytrading rebels and financial market anarchists who believe you are inflicting pain on fat cat wall street hedge fund traders by squeezing their shorts and bidding up share prices of distressed or challenged companies to astronomical prices:

YOU want to "stick it to the man" (i.e. wall street and hedge funds) by taking your stimulus money and unemployment checks and take it to a gambling casino where you can bid up shares in what any 8- year old would argue are grossly overvalued stock prices--. you think the shares you are all buying in unison is going to hurt professional investors who have bet against obscene tulip bulb style speculation.

What you don't seem to get is that while your stock and option purchases are driving up the price, every share you purchase is making "the man" billions. Private Equity lenders-who extend loans to the distressed companies on your 'short squeeze' target lists made those loans with their having the option to convert the company debt into shares. So, now they are converting that debt into shares and selling those shares to YOU and grossly inflated prices. And, the company executives who own shares in these companies are now celebrating as this is their once in a lifetime opportunity to sell those shares to morons who have put nonsensical prices on them... once the Reddit community starts looking at insider share sale activity (when they are reported at end of the quarter), maybe you'll scratch your heads and ask yourselves "what the f--ck" did i accomplish, other than turn millionaire executives into billionaire retirees?

On behalf of all of the fat cat private equity firms and distressed lenders who have made really big bets on distressed companies with bleak futures, you are to be thanked for making them even richer.

When the music stops (meaning when the prices of the shares you bought fall back inside of 10 seconds (you folks trading $GME and $AMC know about that) to realistic prices that make sense based on the real value of the company (which is based on sales, profit margins, net income, and assets vs. liabilities) all of you crusading day traders who were determined to screw the establishment will inevitably lose your money in this "occupy wall street v.2.0" campaign folly,

Or, you will have unloaded your shares on the way down to another "believer in the cause" idiot who is as misguided as you. Not a very altruistic thing to do to a fellow comrade in arms, but you really don't care, because you are not a crusader, you are not aligned with a movement, you merely want to make a few bucks so that you can invest in another fractional bitcoin.

BTW- anyone who has the notion to join a mob and storm the SEC building in Washington to protest trading halts when share prices move to extremes, you should ask your parents (or your baby sitter, or your parole officer) whether that makes any sense.

Good luck and God Bless the next generation of 'online traders' whose objective is to screw the establishment.

When you discover first hand that your behavior left you down and out, you can hope that those fat cats will have a job for you to clean their back-up swimming pool in their 3rd luxury home.
