Bank of America analysts also ranked Reddit stocks in order of mentions in the top 100 posts on WallStreetBets over the last week.

In the process, they also found total discussion across all Reddit stocks on the influential forum hasn’t grown recently, with mentions of AMC stock and GME stock below highs seen early this year.

“In addition, our proxy for retail demand for equity call options has barely moved the past two weeks. This suggests others beyond just Reddit users may be driving up the stocks,” BofA analysts wrote.

AMC stock fell 13.2% to close at 42.81 on the stock market today. GME stock tumbled 27.2% after announcing another share offering and disclosing an SEC probe.
