Here's my Chart. I'm about 60/40 Cdn/US in those percentages. I have some cash that needs to get to work

Any company that is hated (ie expected to go to zero) and heavily shorted is a good candidate so get a list of the most heavily shorted companies in the US and you'll have a list of possible candidates. The key is getting a lot of people to agree and moving in the same direction.

trust me, long term it would've gotten here regardless with or without WSB's help. It was so clear, im so dumb for getting rid of my options and staying safe with shares.

In volume of trades and active position count I do more in the US. The cash position is about 75% C$ because I converted almost 1/2 my US$ to C$ when the exchange was >1.40 and if/when it gets down near to 1.20 I'll buy it all back.

The majority of my gains likely come from the US$ positions as that's where I trade options. Trading options in Canada is a waste of time (eg: I own BB shares in C$ but the option positions are U$).

It's all about the returns and trading where you can make the money. Us retired people have to protect the nest egg you know. :)

Makes me think of that Finding Nemo scene where the net of fish pulls the fishing boat over as soon as the masses pick a direction. Hahah

I agree. BB is still seen as a failed phone company but they have completely transitioned away from phones towards EV/automobiles (meh) and Cyber Security (their true golden goose). BB was eventually going to get here regardless of WSB, but WSB has helped put the spotlight on it (although it is still questionable as to how much of an actual impact WSB actually has).
