The narrative they are pushing is that its over and reddit is a collective. They are lying and wrong. Gamestop is still happening and its not a collective.

Blame individual investors for the 90s dot.com bust? Wall Street Investment Firms are the culprit always! Nice hit job on the little guys CNBC!

.,.,.AMAZON:
Yep, I bought a ton on the dip.

Amazon invested $14 billion in the last quarter alone, the same as it spent in 6 months before that. It is a do not sell stock.

…With the Delta virus coming at full speed ahead, pandemic sales will make a comeback.

Amazon is investing so much money, that no competitor will ever be able to catch up.

Amazon's not going anywhere so I know that eventually it will come back.
Fidelity considers Amazon as a large growth company (probably because as big as it is, it still only has 7% of the retail market)

Get on board or be runover, it's up to you.
