Investing.com – Meme stocks were trading sharply lower in Tuesday’s season, and vying for the top loser position were AMC (NYSE:AMC) and GameStop (NYSE:GME), each down 9%.

Headphone maker Koss (NASDAQ:KOSS) shed around 8%.

It was a sharp reversal for AMC, a day after it gained 25% on the announcement of the reopening of its theatres in Los Angeles on Monday and others in California Friday onwards.

Meme stocks have a devoted following that acquired cult status in January when some Reddit followers decided to take on the big hedge funds. That unexpected coming together resulted in a short squeeze and created trouble for the institutional traders.
