From "Bye Bye Bye" to "BUY BUY BUY"

Illustration for article titled From Bye Bye Bye to BUY BUY BUY

Someone out there decided to convert the loose change out of their car into a share of Hertz right after they filed for bankruptcy. While no one in their right mind would recommend that, those people didn’t count on everyone else losing their minds just a week later!


Let’s say that you had $1,200 saved up to buy a beater car but instead decided to buy a tiny portion of a beaten rental car company instead. Well, your $1,200 worth of shares in Hertz would now have people excited to pay you nearly $14,000 for your total stake in the company’s theoretical future profits. *Whistle*
