Redbox (NASDAQ:RDBX) stock is rising higher on Monday despite the market falling as volatility continues to be a problem alongside inflation.
So what’s keeping shares of RDBX stock from dropping alongside other shares today? It looks like interest from retail traders is what has the company’s shares from falling. Redbox has recently joined the ranks of meme stocks and that means it’s subject to volatility.
Adding into that is short interest in RDBX stock. Many day traders are looking to it as a potential short-squeeze target. This has interest in the stock rising and falling as investors come together in attempts to pump it higher.
To go along with all of this, Redbox also recently announced a planned merger with Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (NASDAQ:CSSE). This would see it being acquired by the entertainment company.
With all of these factors in play, it’s not overly surprising that RDBX stock is rising today. That comes as heavy trading pushes shares higher. As of this writing, more than 34 million shares of the stock have changed hands. That’s well above its daily average trading volume of about 19 million shares.
RDBX stock is up 39% as of Monday afternoon. Shares of the stock are also up 133.8% since the start of the year.
