In this article, we discuss the 12 penny stocks most popular on Reddit and Robinhood. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of these stocks, go directly to the 5 Penny Stocks Most Popular on Reddit and Robinhood.

Retail investors who use internet platforms like Reddit to exchange ideas and stock trading applications like Robinhood Markets, Inc. (NASDAQ:HOOD) to make trades have emerged as a dominant market force in recent months, gaining stardom through the GameStop and AMC Entertainment short squeezes earlier this year and using the fame to organize around penny growth offerings. According to Marketplace Fairness, the most popular online brokerages in the United States were host to over 100 million accounts for retail investors in early 2021.

This number has grown by leaps and bounds since. Robinhood Markets, Inc. (NASDAQ:HOOD), the most popular online trading app where the average age of users is around 31, debuted on the market in late July, raising close to $2 billion at the offering and was valued at around $32 billion. The company had hoped to fetch a valuation of $35 billion but investors were skeptical about regulatory issues and there was retail investor “anger” against the firm for imposition of trading curbs in the meme stock frenzy in January.

Robinhood Markets, Inc. (NASDAQ:HOOD) has been hammered in recent weeks after the initial stock lock-up period after the IPO expired and lots of shares traded hands at the market. A third quarter earnings miss and reports of a massive hack that exposed users have added to the concerns around the company. A larger market shift towards safer value options, in light of inflation concerns, has also resulted in a mass exodus from the stock. The shares have slid over 40% in the past four weeks.

Despite the bleak near-term outlook, hedge funds have been buying the stock keeping in mind the growth potential of the firm in the long-term. At the end of the third quarter of 2021, 20 hedge funds in the database of Insider Monkey held stakes worth $4.6 billion in Robinhood Markets, Inc. (NASDAQ:HOOD). Among the hedge funds being tracked by Insider Monkey, California-based investment firm Greenoaks Capital is a leading shareholder in the company with 22 million shares worth more than $953 million.

In addition to Robinhood, the rise in popularity of Reddit, especially in the finance world, also deserves a mention. The company recently raised around $700 million at a funding round and was valued at more than $10 billion. The user base of the firm will soon touch 500 million. Some of the stocks presently trending on Reddit and Robinhood include Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), and Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), among others.
