Retail traders, who often use internet platform Reddit to exchange investment ideas, have helped push the social media firm into the global spotlight. Amid tough competition, the user growth of Reddit has significantly lagged behind peers like Twitter and Facebook over the years. However, times are changing. According to a report in the Financial Times, the advertising revenue of Reddit jumped 192% year-over-year in the second quarter and crossed $100 million for the first time. The firm also raised $700 million at a funding round in August that helped push the valuation beyond $10 billion. The numbers indicate that the company only lags behind the TikTok platform in terms of percentage growth over the past year among peers. Retail traders, who use Reddit forums like WallStreetBets and Cryptocurrency, are responsible for much of this growth.
Since these retail traders have also become an important market force in recent months, there is increased interest around their activities on Reddit. Investors who want to get a sense of the kind of sectors that these traders prefer should check out some of the top Reddit stocks to buy in November that include Peloton Interactive, Inc.

“DraftKings is an online gaming operator. Its legacy Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) allows users to virtually draft teams of players from professional sports leagues and potentially earn a payout based on how athletes perform. DraftKings Online Sports Betting (OSB) involves the company taking wagers or bets from customers on sporting events. The company’s third offering, Online Casino (iGaming), involves customers betting real money when playing casino games like slots and blackjack online.
DFS is legal in most states, while approximately 25% of the country’s population has access to OSB and approximately 10% has access to iGaming. Within a year, we expect approximately 40% or more of the population to have access to OSB as legalization moves rapidly.
The company reported a strong quarter, with revenues exceeding expectations by more than 30%. We think the stock underperformed due to the time period between the conclusion of March Madness and the start of the NFL season being a weaker betting period and concerns about more intense competition. Concerns around tough comps have also hindered performance of DraftKings shares. We note that monthly state data continues to be robust, showing no signs of slowing from reopening. We also believe DraftKings is increasing its potential to gain market share by moving its tech-platform to SBTech, which is a sports betting platform the company acquired as part of a SPAC deal. Legalization of sports betting by states has also been robust.”
