Really well explained, but there is another point you forgot to tell us about. Volkswagen is owning Porsche that is true, meanwhile Porsche SE Holding which is not the same company as Porsche Automobil is owning VW with 53,3 % of ordinary shares . And the founder of both of these Porsche companies is Ferdinand Porsche. Link:

If only you spent a little bit more on research and actually found out that Porsche split in 2007 to 2 companies -SE and AG. And that VW owns Porsche AG, whereas VW is owned by Porsche SE. And that all that scheme was likely was to get everything under the wing of the Porsche family. Piech and Porsche are relatives btw.

Porsche didn’t make that money. It was a fair value gain on shares already held, but as the price of vw stock came back down and Porsche didn’t sell those shares, no money was made, just a brief Fv gain

There are actually two little dots writtenover the "e" in Piëch. That means the "e" is not a modificator to the "i" to make it phonetically longer but will be explicitly pronounced. In Piëchs case it will most likely be prounounced pee-eggh (I spare you to pronounce the ch, this is as close as you get 😉)

Nice video Though, I'm happy I kept Investing Crypto till date this is Really an encouragement for everyone. Keep us updated with your nice video I'm already a fan. Bit coin is exploding higher despite fears that it would see a strong drawdown towards the $ 37,000 - 39,000 region. The coin currently trade:s for $ 40,000 and more which is the highest point so far in the last two years. This makes it a tough decision for both old and newbies which intentions is to hold and sell but rather the potentials of tradn b t c would allow you trade your b t c not minding the present price chart and also saving your ass from any future deep that may occur. I started teading with Thompson Guy Walter since last year and till date I have made over 14b t c even with the ups and downs since the journey with Thompson no longer have to worry about the rise and dip of Bit coin. You can easily get to Thompson on > • + •1• 2 •1 •3• 3 •4• 0 •8• 8• 7 •3• for any Crypto related issue.

Shorts isn’t actually the thing that’s worth the headline in this essentially a family feud. It is stock Options and how Porsche deceitfully obtained a ‘potentially’ controlling position if they were able to exercise the options. They didn’t have the full cash to exercise so it isn’t correct to state Porsche had that much vw shares. But it did make the market go crazy at the time because you can’t assume Porsche wasn’t going to exercise the options. I remember that afternoon on the trading floor, so many intra day strikes were added on vw options.
