(The AEGIS Alliance) – A ten-year-old Texas boy has cashed in on 1000’s dollars worth of GameStop shares after viral action witnessed stock shares of the video game retail store skyrocket in value.

Jaydyn Carr’s other gave him 10 GameStop shares valued at $6 each two years ago. At the time, the purchase appeared to be a modest investment that wasn’t likely to yield huge returns, with the worth of GameStop shares being in gradual decline for a number of years.

But after frenzy market activity that saw the value of company shares soar by over 300% in only a week, with the worth of the gaming business briefly reaching $30bn, Jaydyn decided to sell his stock on Wednesday morning and cashed in on $3,200.

The San Antonio family chose the best time to sell. GameStop stock had closed Tuesday’s session at just below $148. However, it then soared as high as $372 by Wednesday morning.

They mentioned $2,200 of the funds will be put into the boy’s financial savings account and the rest is reserved to invest once more.

Fifth-grader Jaydyn said which may go towards shopping for shares in online gaming platform Roblox, which has seen its worth soar throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the start of the month, Roblox raised $520m in non-public capital, valuing the company at $29.5bn, a seven-fold increase since February 2020.

“My phone was going off because I have GameStop on my watch list,” Jandyn’s mother Nina said. “I was trying to explain to him that this was unusual, I asked him ‘Do you want to stay or sell?’

I have to train him to let him know you can’t just buy anything, you have to read the charts.”

“Any time I learn something, I show him as well. I wanted to pass on the knowledge I have now because I learned it late in life. I want to give him a step up.”

GameStop’s share value had surged from only $18 just a few weeks ago after users on the subreddit r/WallStreetBets invested in the business and banding together to thwart hedge fund short sellers that had been betting against the company. The value of the stock climbed a total of about 1,700% this month.

It has since dropped after trading app Robinhood restricted GameStop trades and more than 50 other stocks and cryptocurrencies, blaming “recent volatility,” which prompted widespread criticism and a class-action lawsuit. Google went as far as deleting more than 100,000 negative Robinhood app reviews from its app store, Apple app store users also reportedly saw their negative reviews removed.

Critics responded to the “market manipulation” with many folks claiming to be customers vowing to stop using the app.
