GameStop stock price shoots up 100%: All the internet reactions
Thanks to Wall Street, it looks like GameStop has just doubled, tripled, no it actually increased by 100 percent! According to The Verge, GameStop skyrocketed just before the market reached a close today. In fact, the GameStop shares reached $91.71 at approximately 104 percent which is the highest the stock price has ever been!
Though people are surprised by the increase, one group in particular are celebrating the win: r/WallStreetBets. Apparently the investment community claimed that this rapid jump is just the beginning and that many events from the past week have contributed to the rapid growth like Keith Gill doubling his holding in GME to 100,000 shares worth nearly $4 million at the time of his purchase.
Other investors like Chewy founder Ryan Cohen tweeted a picture of McDonald’s ice cream with a cute frog emoji as the caption. But many people believe that Cohen might’ve had something to do with it. Either way, let’s see what people are saying about the news on Twitter.

There’s always that one friend who pulled out of their investment a bit too soon. Was this you, Kevin Hart? Looks like you’ll have to watch your friends enjoy their new stocks.
