DJ Keith Notebook ETF: A Performance Report
By Gunjan Banerji
Betting on Keith Gill's investing skills--after his GameStop position made millions--has paid off handsomely over the past week.
Stocks that appear to be scribbled in the notebook of Mr. Gill, the once-anonymous trader behind the GameStop mania, have gotten a boost over the past week.
Last Friday, The Wall Street Journal published an exclusive interview (https://www.wsj.com/articles/keith-gill-drove-the-gamestop-reddit-mania-he-talked-to-the-journal-11611931696) with Mr. Gill, which included a photo of his notebook. A list of stock tickers is visible in the photo.
This includes FNKO, the ticker for consumer products company Funko and JMIA, the ticker of e-commerce company Jumia Technologies. Also on the list, HGEN, the ticker of biopharmaceutical company Humanigen and IDEX, tied to Ideanomics Inc. The company TAAT Lifestyle & Wellness, which has developed tobacco-free cigarettes, also appears to be featured.
Many of these companies have staged a dramatic rally over the past week, since the photograph was published.
Funko and Jumia's shares are up about 13% and 8%, respectively. Humanigen and Ideanomics have rallied roughly 9% and 28%, respectively. TAAT has surged more than 40% over the past week.
These stocks have left the S&P 500, up almost 5% over the past week, in the dust.
Keith versus the S&P 500? My money's on Keith.
