There has Been a Lot of Chatter on Social About Identifying a New Meme Stock, Maybe the Equities Market Just Needs a New Meme Stock to Give it Legs
I know it was 2021 when investors made fortunes as GameStop (GME) and AMC Entertainment (AMC) turned into meme stocks. Just as a reminder, GME jumped from a post-split adjusted price of $1.17 to $120/share, and AMC jumped from $2.12 to $56/share. In both instances the swing happened within a few months. It seemed like the stock market was printing free money and the investment community was singing the praises of these two companies.
That is, investors who did not hold short positions. Those two companies had attracted an exceptionally significant percentage of short sales with the short seller’s intent on wringing out every penny they could as the companies shares plummeted. The short interest was noticed on social media and legions of retail investors banded together to create an epic short squeeze.
I took away a couple of realizations from that time in 2021. First, short squeezes can and do happen, maybe not on the scale we saw at GME and AMC, but they happen all the time. Secondly, I marveled at the power that a large group of retail investors can have. The message to squeeze the shorts out of those two companies flooded the financial sections of every social media site.
Most opportunities for a short squeeze don’t get the exposure on social media like AMC and GME. Earlier this year I watched a stock I followed jump 250% on good news released by the company. Afterward, I thought “well, the shorts will be all over this one” and sure enough, in short order that bounce in the share price disappeared. That one was a small cap NASDAQ listed company that flew under the radar of most investors. The short interest won that round.
Short squeeze opportunities happen every day. There are stocks that show triple digit gains posted on financial websites every day. The short sellers see them and take their shot, betting that the gain doesn’t have staying power. Large groups of these retail investors sometimes have the power and conviction to squeeze them out and make a tidy profit as the short seller’s scramble to get out at any price.
Considering the current volatility in the equities market, maybe a good meme stock or short squeeze could benefit the retail investment community. Stay vigilant, a good meme stock can be born and work its way to stardom at any time.
Stay tuned as we will be on the hunt for stocks with this type of potential fame…
