Reddit, an online platform, caught the attention of investors last year with the infamous short squeeze of GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME). In January 2021, shares of GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) began skyrocketing, with traders from Reddit’s WallStreetBets forum leading the onslaught. The rally sent the stock up 1600% before it fell down to regular levels again. While the rally itself was short-lived, it left a significant mark on Wall Street, with elite hedge funds like Melvin Capital being gutted to the point it had to be bailed out by two other firms. And even though the online traders did not overthrow traditional investing strategies as a whole, they still managed to put Reddit and its investors on the map of the investing world.
Since then, meme stocks and Reddit stocks like Meta Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ:META), Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), and Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) have become an area of interest for investors and hedge funds alike. Traditional and institutional investors began realizing that they could benefit from Reddit stocks as well. Mudrick Capital Management, an investment advising company, initially benefitted tremendously from a Reddit-driven rally in AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AMC) in July 2021. According to an article published by Bloomberg at that time, Mudrick bought up the company’s bonds, providing $100 million in financing in exchange for about 22 million shares. These shares surged by as much as 839%, allowing Mudrick to profit significantly.
According to an article published by the Wall Street Journal in August 2021, institutions like Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs began tracking retail trading trends last year because of amateur investors dominating the markets at the time. This year as well, investors and hedge funds are keeping an eye on retail investors and their moves in the market to be able to monitor an unpredictable market to the best of their ability.

As a reminder, a Compounder is a business that has…– A durable competitive advantage – Attractive profit margins – Double-digit growth potential – Strong management teamAnd these continue to make up the bulk of our portfolio. Let’s take Gogo as an example. Gogo has a near-monopoly providing internet on private jets in North America. The business has fantastic economics and is consistently growing at double-digit rates.

The business is firing on all cylinders…” (Click here to see the full text)
