How to buy Blockbuster shares

Invest in Blockbuster, the former high street staple, by buying BB Liquidating Inc. shares in just a few minutes.

Blockbuster bit the dust back in 2010 – filing for bankruptcy after consumers stopped heading out to rent physical DVDs in favour of streaming from the comfort of their homes. What remains of Blockbuster is now held by BB Liquidating, and interest in its stocks surged recently following threads on social media channels including Reddit.

Alternative ways to invest in Blockbuster

Buying shares in just one company is generally considered a riskier bet than investing in a range of investments - AKA a "diversified portfolio". Experts generally recommend holding a mix of investments in specific assets and funds. Funds are ready-made portfolios of multiple companies' shares (potentially including Blockbuster), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Blockbuster is a major part of the OTCCE, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).
