Donald Trump’s DJT, the social media company Truth Social, shares slumped more than 20% on Monday, just a week after it went open trading on the market, the news that the company was contemplating a filing for bankruptcy drove the share prices down. That loss follows the chart showing a similar Lack of Income from the Trump Media & Technology Group for the year 2022 that amounts to almost $60 million (approximately $48 million) barely $4 million in revenue.

The Bloomberg estimated that there was a $1 billion drop in the net worth of the former president because his stocks fell in share prices.

Last week saw rising share price, which amounted to raise the company stock value up to 11 billion. On the other hand the experts recommended that the stock had to fall down and would do this because the highlight product of the company was Truth Social which was I suppose not innovative and was hemorrhaging users as well as using cash.

The upsurge in stocks was unlike the “freefall” in meme stocks prevailing during the PCM era when firms like GameStop and AMC were able to get higher share prices without the back up of their fundamental business models.

The share price of Trump Media, that are for the most part funded by advertising revenues from the Truth Social platform have risen by nearly 200% in 2023.

Trump is all set to dig into the pocket as he trades with billions of stocks. This jump has been spurred by short-term investors, including some who actively participate in the Trump legal defense teams or who participate in rallies, where they can see the former president.

Mr. Trump has almost a whopping 60% shares in the company; but then he incurred a loss worth a billion dollars which he further succeeded in stopping for a further six months when his company’s board have decided to do otherwise.
