Is it a good idea to buy these stocks?
Well, that depends. You should never jump into any investment without weighing up the pros and cons. The reason to consider investing is that if the retail investment community targets these stocks in the same way they did GME or AMC, then a similar effect will be seen in terms of the stock price shooting to new heights.
But you want to time your investment right as you don’t want to be left ‘holding the bag’ if other investors sell and the price plummets.

You can see why the Redditors found GME first
From the table above it is clear to see that by far the most shorted stock was GameStop – with the total value of shirted shares exceeding 130% of the company’s value. This is why the r/WallStreetBets community targeted the stock, as it was always going to produce the mother of all short squeezes as the hedge funds holding the shorts felt the pressure.
