The wild moves have led some to wonder if individual investors are behind the rallies.

For the most part, activity among individual investors is a far cry from what we saw during the 2021 meme mania. Still, there are signs that the trend hasn’t totally fizzled.

For example, figures from Vanda Research show that retail buys of Bed Bath & Beyond popped yesterday. And AMC Entertainment and GameStop are still among the top 10 investments for Robinhood users, according to the firm’s investor index.

Maybe the memes are here to stay?
