WallStreetBets is perhaps the most active investing forum on Reddit, where retail investors frequently discuss their latest calls, celebrate their gains, and bemoan their losses. WallStreetBets came into the spotlight during 2021, when the GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) short squeeze led to losses worth billions of dollars for the hedge fund managers who bet against the stock. Reddit's WallStreetBets is famously referred to as the “GameStop Kingmaker”.

Reddit investors have changed the face of retail investing, and the community has proven to be a resilient force in the stock market. In 2021, the forum reported more than 100,000 active communities and there were over 430 million monthly active users.

While Reddit investors and the decade-old WallStreetBets forum has been criticized for creating meme stocks and driving up the prices of neglected stocks to insane levels, it shows the magnitude of influence that the Reddit community holds in the market. As the Reddit IPO nears, there are concerns in the market that Redditors will flock to the stock and drive the valuation and price up on hype alone, much like AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AMC) and GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME).

In the last week, Redditors have been focused on a bunch of stocks that are gaining traction in the market, including Shopify Inc. (NYSE:SHOP), Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA), and Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), among others discussed in detail below.

Reddit WallStreetBets Stocks That Are Rising

10. ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ:WISH)

Gain in Share Price in the Last 5 Days as of March 23: 25.13%

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 13

ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ:WISH) is an e-commerce company with primary operations in Europe, North America, and South America. The digital marketplace, headquartered in San Francisco, connects merchants and users via its website. The stock has soared 25.13% in the last five days.

Although Redditors are flocking to ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ:WISH) to benefit from the upside in shares, Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine on March 22 downgraded ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ:WISH) to Hold from Buy with a price target of $2, down from $4. The analyst is concerned about inflation and the company’s increased exposure to Europe. It also appears that the management has its "hands full". However, Champine believes that ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ:WISH) is "reasonably valued", and the company is lowering advertising expenses and working on the platform's value proposition, but at 0.4-times her expected 2022 revenue.

The hedge fund sentiment around ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ:WISH) is mixed. In Q4 2021, 13 funds reported owning stakes worth roughly $28 million in ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ:WISH), compared to 14 funds in the previous quarter, holding stakes in the company valued at $17 million.

Among the hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey, Maple Rock Capital was the leading shareholder of ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ:WISH) in Q4, with 3.2 million shares worth over $10 million.

In addition to Shopify Inc. (NYSE:SHOP), Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA), and Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ:WISH) is currently popular among Redditors.

9. GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME)

Gain in Share Price in the Last 5 Days as of March 23: 65.69%

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 14

GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) is an American retailer of gaming merchandise, video games, consumer electronics, and relevant accessories.

GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) is hot on Reddit again, as the stock soared 65.69% in the last five days, and multiple Redditors posted gains worth thousands of dollars from their bullish calls. GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) soared on March 23 when chairman Ryan Cohen purchased 100,000 shares of the company priced between $96.81 to $108.82.

On March 18, Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter lowered the price target on GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) to $30 from $45 and kept an Underperform rating on the shares. The analyst believes that GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) is on the right path with expanding its product offering to include PC games and accessories. However, he thinks there will be limited success in developing an NFT marketplace by GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME). The share price also trades at levels that are disconnected from the business fundamentals and are sustained solely due to ongoing support from certain retail investors, the analyst added.

In the fourth quarter of 2021, 14 hedge funds were long GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME), up from 9 funds in the prior quarter. Citadel Investment Group is a prominent shareholder of the company, with 120,085 shares worth $17.8 million.

Here is what Bireme Capital has to say about GameStop Corp. (NASDAQ:WISH) in its Q3 2021 investor letter:

“Remarkably, Reddit traders have initiated not one but two stratospheric climbs in the GME share price since the start of the year.

In January, the shares reached $300, up from $10 last October. This surge entered the national conversation as almost no other stock run in history, prompting both a Congressional investigation and a mention on Saturday Night Live. Short interest collapsed from 71m shares to 10m shares and eventually the share price did too, settling at $50 by the end of February. What’s more impressive is that the Reddit crowd has fueled a second rise in GameStop Corp. (NASDAQ:WISH), with shares now trading at over $170.

Gamestop (GME) has no realistic chance of meeting the expectations implied by these prices.

Gamestop’s current market capitalization is about $13.5b. This means that one day the firm will likely need to earn >$500m in profits (implying a ~4% earnings yield) to generate a positive return. But Gamestop has never earned $500m in a single year. The company’s peak profitability was way back in 2016 when it netted $415m. Profits have been declining ever since, including massive operating losses of $400m in 2019 and $238m in 2020. Revenues have declined precipitously as well, from $8.3b in 2018, to $6.5b in 2019, to just $5.1b in 2020.”

8. Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST)

Gain in Share Price in the Last 5 Days as of March 23: 13.02%

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 20

Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST) was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in San Mateo, California. Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST) is a financial technology company that leverages artificial intelligence to provide lending platforms in the United States.

On February 15, Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST) reported its fourth quarter earnings, posting an EPS of $0.89, topping analysts’ predictions by $0.38. The Q4 revenue came in at 304.85 million, up 251.57% year-over-year, outperforming estimates by $42 million.

Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST) gained 7.5% on March 9 after the company launched its new mobile-first auto retail digital AI platform for car dealers. In the last five days, the stock has climbed 13%, which has rallied the interest of Redditors.

Wedbush analyst David Chiaverini downgraded Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST) on March 22 to Underperform from Neutral with a price target of $75, down from $110. The analyst believes that Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST) has yet to face a true recession, which means its business model has not been battle-tested. In addition to that, the weakening delinquency trends paired with macro and geopolitical risks could result in lower appetite from Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST)’s credit buyers and the securitization market.

Among the hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey, Dan Loeb’s Third Point is the largest shareholder of Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST), owning 4 million shares worth $605.2 million. Overall, 20 hedge funds were bullish on the stock at the end of the fourth quarter of 2021.

Here is what Alger Spectra Fund has to say about Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST) in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

“Upstart operates a cloud-based artificial intelligence (Al) lending platform. The platform aggregates consumer demand for loans and connects it to the company’s network of Al-enabled bank partners. The technology connects consumers, banks and institutional investors through a shared Al lending platform. The company continues to improve its various Al-driven models, which has significantly widened the top of the application funnel, or the overall universe of loan applicants. Additionally, more accurate predictions on risk can lead to higher approval rates, which tap into larger lead pools and may ultimately translate into higher loan volume and revenue. While Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST)’s share price has given back a significant component of its meteoric rise since the company’s December 2020 IPO, the price remains up approximately 150% for the year. We maintain that Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPST) is an innovative and disruptive Al company. In our view, fundamentals remain strong, with revenues growing 250% year over year, driven by 244% year-over-year growth of loan volume, which exceeded consensus estimates. Contribution margin, which is a measure of how products contribute to the overall profits of a company, was 46%. We believe Upstart is appropriately balanced between maintaining profitability while driving growth.”

7. DiDi Global Inc. (NYSE:DIDI)

Gain in Share Price in the Last 5 Days as of March 23: 55.51%

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 21

DiDi Global Inc. (NYSE:DIDI) is a Chinese mobility technology platform offering ride hailing and food delivery services. The company operates in China, Brazil, Mexico, and internationally. The stock has jumped over 55.5% in the past five days, as the Chinese tech crackdown nears an end and the government supports companies that are listed overseas.

Bernstein analyst Cherry Leung initiated coverage of DiDi Global Inc. (NYSE:DIDI) on February 14 with an Outperform rating and a $6.20 price target. The company's "regulatory storm is largely over" and it is also working to increase license compliance, the analyst told investors in a bullish note. In addition to that, DiDi Global Inc. (NYSE:DIDI) maintains a "sturdy leadership position during new customer suspension," the analyst noted.

According to the fourth quarter database of Insider Monkey, Philippe Laffont’s Coatue Management is the largest shareholder of DiDi Global Inc. (NYSE:DIDI), with 40.4 million shares worth $201.6 million. Overall, 21 hedge funds were bullish on DiDi Global Inc. (NYSE:DIDI), up from 15 funds in the earlier quarter.

Here is what Davis Global Fund has to say about DiDi Global Inc. (NYSE:DIDI) in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

“The second regulatory action took place shortly after the initial public offering of Didi Global, China’s ride-sharing leader, on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). In early July, the Cybersecurity Administration of China (CAC), implementing provisions from the new Data Security Law issued on June 10, announced that Didi will undergo a cybersecurity review, and further downloading of its app was suspended. Didi’s data privacy and collection policies, as well as data security considerations stemming from the company’s U.S. listing, were the focus of the review. On December 3, Didi announced that it planned to delist from the NYSE and relist in Hong Kong. The market understandably dislikes uncertainty, and it will take several months for the relisting process to be finalized. Over the long run, however, we believe a Hong Kong listing will resolve the CAC’s concerns around national data security, and it will provide a globally recognized primary listing venue, as it already does for other large Chinese internet companies such as Tencent and Meituan. Over time, the value of Didi, like any other company, will be determined by its business prospects and profitability rather than the location of its primary exchange listing.”

6. Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE:PLTR)

Gain in Share Price in the Last 5 Days as of March 23: 12.46%

The analyst noted that Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE:PLTR) is improving its operational effectiveness by leveraging software, AI, and data into "powerful, central IT solutions".
