CIBC Investor's Edge
At the start of 2021, Reddit cemented itself as a key trading indicator for many seasoned and institutional investors around the world. This was because GameStop, a US-based video game retailer, spiked over 700% during a frenzied few days at the end of January.
GameStop sky-rocketed around 8,000% over six months. The stock became a piece in a rather complicated financial power struggle puzzle between a major hedge fund, Melvin Capital, and a group of internet investors who congregated on Reddit. GameStop became the subject of what’s known as ‘short selling’, a process in which professional investors borrow shares of stock to sell them and then buy them back at a later date, allowing them to make a profit if the stock price goes down. In simple terms, short-selling is a bet that the company will fail, with infinite loss potential.
Long story short, Reddit investors found an opportunity to make some money by aggressively buying GameStop stocks, which resulted in an internet pile on, with everyone from Elon Musk to Wolf of Wall Street’s Jason Belfort wading into the debate and hype. A boom of coverage of the now infamous subreddit r/WallStreetBets made sure the frenzy continued through January.
We’ve compiled some of the trending Reddit stocks above to give you some inspiration, but if you’d like to take a look at Reddit yourself, here’s how you can find trending stocks on Reddit:
The GameStop scenario tells us that, yes, it does. For example during the frenzy, brokerages were forced to suspend trading of certain stocks, and even caused outages of entire apps. This was due to the intense strain put on the infrastructure of brokerages and trading apps, many of which received unprecedented volumes of trades and new sign ups.
The GameStop affair has also caused a lasting shift in the analysis conducted by institutions. The internet has empowered retail investors, the combined force of which now matched institutions when it comes to buying power and volume. This changed the dynamics of investing somewhat, you’d think in favour of the little guy – though it remains to be seen if retail investor success has eaten into the profits of the big guns on Wall Street.
Reddit has provided some of the most dramatic investing stories since the start of 2020, the most famous of those being the GameStop frenzy. Some of the most commonly talked about stocks include GameStop, AMC Entertainment, Tesla and BlackBerry.
The internet has been used for talking about stocks and investments since its inception. Reddit is just the latest evolution of that. There are some advantages to researching stocks on Reddit, as well as some things you should watch out for.
Like any form of research, Reddit offers some things you can’t get elsewhere, but should probably just form a part of your overall research process – as opposed to being the start and end of your digging.
