  • Tuesday recap

  • Did you know?

  • Make-Whole Calls

Good Morning! This is Mother Squeezer, the newsletter that celebrates personal and financial goals and brings you updates and insights along with timely information about our favorite Activist InvestorRyan Cohen, and our favorite stocks - GME and BBBY.

Since we're still waiting for our financial goals to be realized, today we celebrate something personal...

Today marks 5 years together for the Missus and I. We had no idea that 5 years ago we'd be so entrenched with Ryan Cohen, Bed Bath & Beyond and GameStop. Today it has become a daily conversation and we are thrilled to be a part of the movement.

Here is our very first photo before we even knew we were going places together (from left to right Me, the Missus and our great friend "John G" in Long Beach, California).

Here's to at least 5 more 🥂.

The chatter with Teddy Holdings has been up-trending and the price of BBBY has been climbing with insane volume the past 2 days and we don't expect it to dwindle. This too could be the beginning of something special.

This pre-market volume once again is exciting, let's see if this uptrend continues!
