Why am I giving this warning? I believe that the following stonks are victims of naked short selling - a disgusting illegal act attempting to take advantage of a world health crisis and profit off of the closing of hundreds of businesses. The stonk market is meant to promote free-trade but using the analytical tools I am providing on this site I have seen blatantly illegal manipulation of this anything but free market. I believe the actors responsible for this manipulation should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, however, until they are brought before justice retail investors are incredibly vulnerable to heavily manipulated stonks.
Why does this affect options and not stonks? It is not unique to options however, in the last 6 months I have seen hundreds of thousands of worthless put options created and destroyed to create movement up-and-down in order to cause thousands of retail options to expire worthless. If you purchase options on the following stonks, it is likely that you are directly funding criminal trading activity. If you purchase shares, you may still lose money, but you will not be losing premiums for a valueless trading tool. Moreover, if the naked short sales are brought to justice, your shares will likely increase in value by a large factor - a short squeeze. If you purchase options on these stonks and it is advantageous to have them expire out of the money, you will have no way to recover value in your investment.
