20/20 Money Episode #117 – GameStop ($GME) story-time: The good, the bad, and the ugly…and what we can learn from it

February 1, 2021

On this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is my good friend Josh Bannerman, (a.k.a. the “OG” from the Stacking Benjamins podcast).

Josh and I were talking the other night about the craziness that is going on in the markets recently. I got to thinking (after the conversation) that what we were just talking about would have made for a great episode for 20/20 Money. So, as good content creators do, Josh agreed to come on the show so that we could both talk about it and give you our perspectives. We start out by giving a brief backstory on what’s caused the trading frenzy with GME and AMC, how to think about it as an investor, and how to put it all into perspective. Josh also shares an unfortunately very sad story about how a close friend of his (not me!) ended up with significant losses as a result of some very risky bets in the market…and what lessons we can learn from it.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 20-30min Triage conversation to learn a little bit more about how we help ODs around the country reduce their tax bill, manage cash flow, and make proactive money decisions or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks and other blog posts.

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my lively conversation with my good friend, the OG!
