Meme stocks are incredibly volatile on Friday as investors react to the latest earnings report from GameStop (NYSE:GME).

GameStop failed to impress investors with its first-quarter earnings report. That’s due to its revenue of $881.8 million. This is worse than the $900 million to $1.09 billion that the two analysts covering the company were expecting.

Also not helping matters is GameStop posting a loss of $32.3 million during the quarter. However, it is better than its loss of $50.5 million from the same period of the year prior.

Considering GameStop’s status as a leader of meme stocks, it makes sense this news would cause volatility among them. Let’s get into that more below!
