It's been a wildly successful year for some retail investors. Stocks like AMC Entertainment and GameStop have skyrocketed higher because of short squeezes -- meaning that rising share prices have forced investors who've bet against the stocks to close out their positions by buying shares, creating even more upwards pressure on the share prices. Over the long term, this could be the case for AMC and GameStop if their resurgent share prices don't eventually equate to business growth.
