    One caveat to GME. The hedgefucks never covered back in Jan as shown by Fintel, Ortex and others. Hedgefucks have not learned still. When they have to start covering GME, AMC and many other heavily shorted stocks, they all will skyrocket to unprecedented levels. Just watch. Or buy if you want your own free Porsche.

    Great video explaining something that was a major public issue in Germany, where I live. Most people didn't understand the background - but they did understand that 1) this was a personal game played by some of Europe's richest men. Partly to try and get richer - but in all honesty it was more about the egos of the guys involved. Everybody wanted to screw the other guy. 2) It was shady as hell and 3) the thousands and thousands of workers at these companies didn't count for jack. EVERYBODY that was a central player in this was involved in scandal again and again - some serving jail time (for other stuff.) Ferdinand Piech finally died some time ago. It was officially from a heart attack. But this - of course - is impossible. He had no heart.

    Really well explained, but there is another point you forgot to tell us about. Volkswagen is owning Porsche that is true, meanwhile Porsche SE Holding which is not the same company as Porsche Automobil is owning VW with 53,3 % of ordinary shares . And the founder of both of these Porsche companies is Ferdinand Porsche. Link:

    If only you spent a little bit more on research and actually found out that Porsche split in 2007 to 2 companies -SE and AG. And that VW owns Porsche AG, whereas VW is owned by Porsche SE. And that all that scheme was likely was to get everything under the wing of the Porsche family. Piech and Porsche are relatives btw.

    There are actually two little dots writtenover the "e" in Piëch. That means the "e" is not a modificator to the "i" to make it phonetically longer but will be explicitly pronounced. In Piëchs case it will most likely be prounounced pee-eggh (I spare you to pronounce the ch, this is as close as you get 😉)
