Is Dave Portnoy Back?

It looks like the world will be seeing the return of Davey Day Trader Global.

Dave Portnoy, founder of Barstool Sports, and once Jim Cramer’s favorite stonker, has posted a lengthy announcement of the return of Davey Day Trader Global (DDTG), the YouTube livestream where Portnoy talks about the stock market, which stocks he’s buying, and from the looks of it, stocks he’s angry about.

Portnoy started the “day trader” show during the pandemic and became a big meme stock personality during the retail investor revolution of 2021. In March of that year, Portnoy launched VanEck Vectors Social Sentiment (BUZZ) ETF which bet on the BUZZ NextGen AI US Sentiment Leaders Index, which tracks the performance of 75 large-cap US stocks that show the highest degree of positive investor sentiment and bullish perception, which included, at the time, Tesla, Facebook (before it was Meta), and Amazon.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Portnoy took a break as the markets dipped.

According to the Star Wars-themed announcement, DDTG will return in March. And from the looks of it, fans and followers around the world can expect a lot of, erm, Sam Bankman-Fried.

Now in case you need a recap, here’s how #DDTG’s journey went the first time.
