OFFICIALS SUBPOENA GAMESTOP BULL ROARING KITTY
Massachusetts securities regulators have issued a subpoena seeking the testimony of a YouTube streamer who helped drive a surge of interest in GameStop Corp as part of a review of his registration, including his “outside business activities,” an official said on Wednesday. The office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin issued the subpoena on Monday, looking to hear later this month from Massachusetts financial adviser Keith Gill, pictured. Gill gained notoriety as Roaring Kitty on YouTube, making the case for buying shares of the video retailer. Gill until recently worked for insurance giant MassMutual and is a registered broker. Gill became a key figure in the so-called Reddit rally, which saw shares of GameStop surge 400 per cent in a week before crashing back to pre-surge levels.
