Doesn't adding more shares effectively increase the number of shares people already own? Like if they double the number of shares, you keep the same value in your portfolio but now it's for double the number of shares.

what people are talking about here is raising capital by issuing new shares for sale. This dilutes ownership of the stock, brings in new blood, but previous investors have priority over purchase of the newly issued shares

Yes they filed a shelf registration statement for 100 million worth of common stock

>> No.26627268

Here's the actual, definitive answer:

Usually a firm has to file with the SEC to dilute its shares. However, GameStop filed a "shelf offering" with the FEC in December 2020. This allows them to issue a set value of shares at will, when they want. Their shelf offering is up to 100MM, and was likely what the short sellers were counting on.

However, the market cap of GME is now over 10B, which means the potential dilution is less than 1%. Even if GameStop issues every single available share tomorrow, it cannot possibly cover the shorts. If GameStop announces an offering, the stock will temporarily tank. If retards are determined enough to hold through it, the squeeze will still take place--and this actually creates enormous opportunity to double dip on the squeeze before and after the dilution (assuming one is clever enough to time it properly).

One the other hand, if people panic sell, the dilution will save the short sellers even though it's impossible for the diluted shares to save the short sellers by themselves.

Gamestop has an agenda to burn the shorts since they were betting on driving the stock to bankruptcy tier.
If they let the shorts get away they'll just return stronger again to drive the stock back into the dirt.

Gamestop makes solid revenue, it's p/l and future growth that worries investors.
Of course there was one smart-brained billionaire fund manager who decided to naked short 140% of the available stock, to lock him his potentially infinite loss.

They'll float AFTER the shorts are burned.
You have to understand Gamestop hasn't magically changed since the shorts began. If shorts win then they'll realize that nothing can stop them from shorting again and again until Gamestop stock price is back to bankruptcy projection. That was their original end game until deepfuckingvalue memed it into pump and dump of our generation.

And that's the company's problem because? They could only justify doing this to raise funds that they need to invest. Except to don't come up with a multi-million expansion project overnight, and even if they did come up with one the timing would be very suspicious. The board can't just dilute the shares without a rationale, that'd be the best way to completely destroy their credibility and the company's with investors, and fast track them to bankkuptcy. Also remember their largest holders are BlackRock and Vanguard, and they won't take "we diluted just because" as a answer, they will sue.

tl;dr Gamestop board won't dilute.
