The WallStreetBets (WSB) community has been and is a powerful force in the market since January, causing many investors to reevaluate their positions and institutions to reconsider shorting their market.
Some of the biggest names in play over the past several months have been GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) and AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. (NYSE:AMC). The WSB community has often targeted companies that are heavily shorted, crowding that trade and forcing a short squeeze. While these companies were the 1st round of WSB targets, the community has expanded from there into more stocks.
GameStop holders saw a solid gain on the day with shares up about 3% at 216.50. The 52-wk range is 3.77 – 483.00. The other major staple to the meme stock portfolio, AMC, saw its shares up about 5% at 56.65, within its 52-wk range of 1.91 -72.62.
Here, Workhorse stock last traded up about 11% at 17.33, ContextLogic stock was up over 5% at 14.82, and Senseonics stock was up about 5% at 4.03.
Monday, Vertex Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:VTNR) was the biggest loser out of the group with shares down over 4% at 8.91, with a 52-wk range of 0.40 – 10.88.
Have a positive day, Keep the Faith!
