GameStop lunge ated a five-day losing streak with a significant surge on Thursday, as shares of the video game retailer rose more than 50% and displayed that their wild swings are not yet over.
The stock slumped 33% in the prior session after the company boomed disappointing fourth-quarter results and failed to give in-depth detail about its turnaround plans. GameStop also revealed that it was considering selling more stock.
That was the fifth-straight negative day for the name after closing near $210 per slice on March 17. The stock rose 52.7% to close at $183.75 on Thursday.
There was no apparent news driving Thursday’s charge action. GameStop has been the most high-profile “meme stock,” which are popular among retail traders on Reddit and other popular media platforms.
GameStop famously rocketed above $400 per share in January before dropping roughly 90% in less than a month.
Other fashionable Reddit trades also bounced higher on Thursday, with Koss climbing 57% and AMC Entertainment gaining 21%.
GameStop is a household brick-and-mortar retailer that is attempting to pivot into e-commerce, led in part by board member and Chewy co-founder Ryan Cohen. Most recently, the gathering hired Jenna Owens, a former Amazon and Google executive, as its new chief operating officer.
The company, which has in great part been quiet about the violent gyrations in its stock price this year, has seen several executive responsibilities turn over as it gears up for its transition.
