If you want to see an example of a popular company throwing away years of goodwill with its customers over a short span of time, look no further than Robinhood. The company says that it's on a mission to democratize finance for its users, but its recent actions flew in the face of those claims. Robinhood has just aired its upcoming Super Bowl commercial, entitled "We are all investors." In it, the company champions the everyman; the very people that it has always catered to and embraced during its 7 years of existence.  After all, the company's mission statement reads, "At Robinhood, we believe the financial system should be built to work for everyone. That’s why we create products... Read more...
In the last week, the GameStop fiasco has expanded to several other stocks and now cryptocurrencies.

Is the party coming to the end for the "little guys" that banded together to take on some of the biggest hedge funds on Wall Street? Earlier this week, we reported on the meteoric rise of GameStop shares (NYSE:GME), which has been fueled by "degenerates" -- a title that the group has coined for themselves -- over at the WallStreetBets subreddit. They then moved on to push AMC Theaters (NYSE:AMC) and Nokia (NYSE:NOK) in a financial windstorm that has rocked Wall Street. However, there has been a lot of commotion raised about these degenerates and other everyday Americans that have joined in on this fascinating gold rush, as GME shot from $70 to $347 in a matter of days.

Yesterday, we reported on the subreddit /r/WallStreetBets that was effectively gaming the stock market and driving shares of GameStop stock to the moon. Today, it seems as though the crazy train just is not ending. The crowdsourced stock-mob has now driven (NYSE:GME) up approximately 129%, to around $350, at the time of publication.
