GameStop rallies overnight as Roaring Kitty reveals $180M GME position

Keith Gill, the trader linked to the 2021 GME short squeeze, has returned to Reddit claiming he’s made a big bet on GameStop, sending the stock’s price surging overnight markets.

GameStop (GME) surged over 19% in overnight trading after Keith Gill, known as “Roaring Kitty,” posted to Reddit that he’s holding $181.4 million worth of GME stock and call options.

Gill, the trader widely cited as a major influence on the 2021 GME short squeeze, posted to Reddit on his “DeepFuckingValue” account on June 2 for the first time since April 2021.

He shared a screenshot apparently showing he purchased 5 million GME shares for $115.7 million and put $65.7 million into call options, betting that GME would be at least $20 a share on June 21.

Gill’s screenshot shows he’s gained over $9.3 million on his GME holdings and is holding a loss of nearly $2.5 million on his call options.

Robinhood’s overnight markets saw GME jump by 19.19% in 20 minutes to $27.58 after Gill’s Reddit post.

GameStop closed at $23.14 on Friday, May 31, with shares up 38.8% this year, according to Google Finance — seemingly boosted by Gill’s return.

Gill also cryptically posted a green UNO reverse card to X — adding to a series of arcane posts and memes he’s shared since his sudden return in May.

In the past, Gill was known to post on the r/wallstreetbets subreddit now famous for its ties to the GameStop short squeeze saga but the forum has moved away from GME content, with its moderator “zjz” even posting on June 3 that “this is not a GameStop subreddit.”

Gill’s latest post was made on the r/Superstonk subreddit, seemingly a forum to mostly speculate on GME.

His prior post to r/wallstreetbets on April 16 showed Gill owned 20,000 GME shares at a buy price of $55.17 a share. At the time he was holding a gain of $19.9 million.
