Ryan Cohen could have “a modest wee wee” or he may possibly have the opposite of “a smaller wee wee,” but one thing is selected: there’s a whole lot of converse of the chairman’s “small wee wee” and GameStop’s
inventory is up big.
At about 1 a.m. EST on Monday, the 30-anything Chewy co-founder, turned activist trader, turned GameStop chairman, tweeted “eew eew llams a evah I,” which spelled backward reads “I have a little wee wee.”
As we have talked about in the past, fundamentals can be entertaining, but absolutely nothing moves GameStop shares like an inscrutable tweet from the company’s perceived savior turned genuine chairman.
In the previous 12 months, Cohen’s habit of sending out evidently absurd tweets—like his individual tombstone studying “RIP Dumbass,” a collection of deal with swaps to make him seem like Victoria’s Mystery runway models, and the most current provocation of “MGGA”—has just about uniformly resulted in a shift upward for GameStop shares.
Reactions on social media and in the current market to Cohen’s tweet on the diminutive measurement of his “most private allocation” were being frothy and immediate.
“emaS” replied meme inventory influencer Matt Kohrs on Twitter.
“Hsillub,” additional fellow retail investing superstar Trey’s Trades, each accounts obviously working with the backward composition to voice their aid of Cohen’s admission/brag/news notify.
A lot of of Cohen’s twitter followers took the backwardness of anything as a sign that Cohen was striving to converse the reverse indicating, for instance, participating in some public self-care by paying the twilight of Monday morning executing a public affirmation that he in truth has a huge “wee wee.”
By midday, GameStop shares experienced climbed up as superior as 4.2%, right before trimming that advance.
On Reddit, a a lot more structured, colorful and primary cable-y idea of Cohen’s backward wee wee tweet took hold.
According to a publish by person Kopheus on subreddit r/GME, the phrase “I have a tiny wee wee” arrives from an episode of the animated Television Sequence “South Park,” and is stated by the instructor character Mr. Garrison, though standing under an alphabet chart that has been edited to spell out the show’s catchphrase: “Oh, my God, they killed Kenny!” in Spanish.
Although that could possibly seem as outlandish as a developed guy with thousands and thousands of pounds pumping shares of a videogame retailer by saying he has a little dong in backward text, it in fact [what is happening to us?] can make feeling on further evaluate.
The idea of “killing Kenny” is very common among Reddit’s foundation of GameStop Apes who have made Citadel founder Ken Griffin into their primary enemy, re-christening him as “Kenny G” or merely “Kenny.”
And Cohen’s tweets have referenced South Park on multiple prior events. In reality, a Cohen tweet from Aug. 11 appears to reference the quite exact same episode that has Reddit humming.
GameStop inventory was down much more than 7% at the conclude of very last week, and there does not look to be a great deal news coming out of the company—still no sign of Cohen’s master prepare getting revealed—so a cryptic connect with to action on Twitter is not a lousy strategy, primarily as it is worked for him just before.
