Webinar: Gamestop, Short Squeezes and Retail Investors
How can a short squeeze be implemented and what are the main ingredients needed to implement a short squeeze? With assistant professor Roberto Ricco, NHH, and CIO Robert Næss, Nordea Investment Management
The webinar analyzes what happened in Gamestop, how shorts sellers were squeezed, and how large of a factor was retail participation in the process. Looking at similar cases with more detailed data shows that squeezing the shorts can be a very profitable strategy potentially exacerbated by regulation.
