Investing.com – Most of the favorite shares of retail traders, popularly known as meme stocks, looked set for another day of gains after surginig on Tuesday.

AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) and Koss (NASDAQ:KOSS) were up 4% each while GameStop (NYSE:GME), Virgin Galactic (NYSE:SPCE) and BlackBerry (NYSE:BB) were all up 2% in Wednesday’s premarket trading. Clover Health (NASDAQ:CLOV) was up 0.7%.

AMC, GameStop and Clover Health booked double-digit gains Tuesday while Blackberry (TSX:BB) rose 9.5%.

GameStop soared 27% Tuesday to book its biggest spike in 5 months, with no identifiable news trigger. 

Two stocks, Robinhood (NASDAQ:HOOD) and Contextlogic (NASDAQ:WISH) were trading lower premarket though they had also risen a day earlier, by 9% and 6.4%, respectively.

There has been little by way of news to drive the rally in any of the above stocks, except for Naked Brand (NASDAQ:NAKD), whose chairman talked up a possible sale to a larger company earlier this week.

The lack of any firm news has left the stocks at the mercy of short-term momentum plays based on hearsay and opinion but little else.
