Dumb Money Movie Story

Based on the true story of a group of rag-tag investors from the Reddit page called r/WallStreetBets, who banded together to put the squeeze on at least two hedge funds that had bet that GameStop shares would fall.

Short selling is where investors borrow a company or product’s shares and then sell them straight away with the goal of buying them back later at a lower price. They then return their borrowed shares and skim a profit off of the difference in price which has occurred as a result of the process.

This can be risky, as share prices can rise or fall considerably due to any number of circumstances, which could then leave investors cornered when stock prices suddenly rise.

Meanwhile, in a stock-obsessed subreddit named r/WallStreetBets, a group of amateur stock market enthusiasts believed that GameStop’s stock was being undervalued and spotted an opportunity to initiate a short squeeze that would drive up their price and force sellers to yield their shares at big financial losses.

Due to this short selling, GameStop’s stock price rose by 1500% in the course of just two weeks, thanks to many Reddit ‘investors’ who were primarily teenagers. This was exasperated further when Elon Musk tweeted about the developing situation, raising the store’s stock price even higher.
