“Meme stocks like AMC and GameStop (GME) are trending again today because of a market downturn,” said Sheri Bechtel, editor of Finder’s Share Trading and Investing team. “These are hedges to perceived weakness in the broader market. If you have some extra funds around and you have the risk tolerance, go for it. But meme stocks are not solid long-term investments.”
