In this article, we discuss the 10 best penny stocks popular on Reddit. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of these stocks, go directly to the 5 Best Penny Stocks Popular on Reddit.

Internet forums like Reddit have opened up the stock market to a new generation of investors who come from all types of different backgrounds, diversifying the marketplace and resulting in a flurry of new investments into equities. In late July, Goldman Sachs analyst David Kostin told investors in a research note that the retail favorite stock list of the investment bank had outperformed the benchmark S&P 500 Index by 3 percentage points in June, an indicator of the ever-growing power of retail investors on the overall market dynamics.

Some of the stocks presently popular on Reddit include Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), Shopify Inc. (NYSE: SHOP), NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA), and Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE: PLTR), among others. However, for those not interested in these pricey options, there are several penny stocks popular on the internet platform, some of which are discussed below. Penny stocks are popular on the platform because many retail investors operate on limited budgets and are not averse to risk-taking.

Smart investors can gather valuable insight from the trends related to the penny stocks and their impact on the market, especially with regards to meme stocks and high volume trades that have exploded in popularity over the past few months. As more money is poured into the market, volatility has been high, but for those who can turn profits from diligent research into penny stocks, playing the game with the big boys becomes that much easier. It is fair to say that retail investors have delivered a rude awakening to the world of big finance in recent months.

The entire hedge fund industry is feeling the reverberations of the changing financial landscape. Its reputation has been tarnished in the last decade, during which its hedged returns couldn’t keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. On the other hand, Insider Monkey’s research was able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the S&P 500 ETFs by more than 124 percentage points since March 2017. Between March 2017 and May 29th 2021 our monthly newsletter’s stock picks returned 206.8%, vs. 91.0% for the SPY. Our stock picks outperformed the market by more than 115 percentage points (see the details here). That’s why we believe hedge fund sentiment is an extremely useful indicator that investors should pay attention to.
