GameStop was supposed to hold its virtual annual shareholder meeting on Thursday, June 13 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time. However, due to issues with the third party hosting site, the meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, June 17 at 12:30 p.m.

No business was discussed at this week’s meeting. According to Computer sharing (OTCMKTS:CMSQY), the host in question, the technical problem prevented some investors from participating in the call, and the meeting ended quite quickly as soon as the broadcast was made.

Since Gill returned to publishing on GameStop in May, the stock has been on a virtual roller coaster. Indeed, Gill began posting again on his X account, formerly Twitter, on May 13. A day later, on May 14, GME soared 180%. The stock has since fallen somewhat but remains in the green at 66% since the start of the year.

Gill has been criticized for some of his social media posts, many of which reveal his significant stakes in the company. According to his latest E-Trade portfolio screenshot, Gill owns approximately 9 million shares of GME.

Some believe Gill’s publication could amount to stock market manipulation. However, many lawyers say a regulator is unlikely to take action against him.

“What he’s doing is exploiting a loophole in the rules,” said Daniel Hawke, a partner at Law Offices of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer and former head of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Market Abuse Unit. “He uses his fame and influence to get people to buy stocks. Current rules do not permit the SEC to pursue this behavior unless there is an element of deception.
