In this article, we discuss the 10 stocks Reddit's WallStreetBets is buying in July 2021. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of these stocks, go directly to the 5 Stocks Reddit's WallStreetBets is Buying in July 2021.

Reddit forum WallStreetBets, with a user base of more than 10.6 million, has become one of the influential finance platforms on the internet in the past six months. The forum is used by retail investors to exchange information about the stock market. Over the past six months, the forum has been perhaps the single largest source of instability in the market, spoiling hedge fund shorts that have resulted in billions of dollars in losses to big finance. The forum recently went private, limiting membership only to users approved by moderators.

Some of the stocks presently popular on Reddit platform WallStreetBets include GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME), AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AMC), ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ: WISH), and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA), among others. Most of these stocks have high short interest and are the subject of a short squeeze by retail investors as hedge funds try to short-sell. These meme stocks, as they have come to be known, have witnessed record rallies in the past six months, rewarding shareholders with triple-digit returns.

The retail investor interest in the stock market has been helped by applications like Robinhood that have made trading easier and more accessible. However, these applications have also become the subject of a tussle between retail investors and big finance as the battle around meme stocks intensifies. Investment bank Goldman Sachs predicts that retail investors will continue to influence the market through the rest of the fiscal year and are expected to invest close to $400 billion into stocks.

According to a report in Financial Times, the influence of WallStreetBets has reached a point where hedge funds have started keeping regular tabs on the forum in order to better understand the market dynamics at any given point in time, thereby shielding themselves from the kind of losses that have resulted in the closure of funds like White Square Capital. As the third quarter begins, it remains to be seen how retail investors will navigate the inflation tailwinds and the dramatic drop in the prices of technology stocks.

These conditions that are not altogether familiar for these young investors. However, even the wider market has been stumped by the present lull around growth stocks. 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 February 26th 2021 our monthly newsletter’s stock picks returned 197.2%, vs. 72.4% for the SPY. Our stock picks outperformed the market by more than 124 percentage points (see the details here). We were also able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that significantly underperformed the market. We have been tracking and sharing the list of these stocks since February 2017 and they lost 13% through November 16th. That’s why we believe hedge fund sentiment is an extremely useful indicator that investors should pay attention to.
