Bill applies his perspective of decades as an investment advisor to what happened with GameStop (GME-nyse) stock in late January 2021. What fueled the rise of GME? What made the event so unique and what are the implications for the financial industry moving forward? Bill compares GME stock to what happened with tulips in the Netherlands in the 1600s. Anastasia relates one of the most poignant moments in the film, The Big Short, to the anger that fueled many retail investors' decision to buy GME stock.
