GameStop (GME) surged over 19% in overnight trading after Keith Gill, known as “Roaring Kitty,” posted on Reddit that he holds GME shares worth $181.4 million and call options.

Gill, a trader widely credited with influencing GME short-selling activity in 2021, posted on his “DeepFuckingValue” Reddit account on June 2nd for the first time since April 2021.

He shared a screenshot purportedly showing his purchase of 5 million GME shares for $115.7 million and placing $65.7 million in call options, betting that GME would be priced at least $20 per share by June 21st.
