GameStop shares surged 118% to their highest since June 2021 after "Roaring Kitty" Keith Gill returned to social media, igniting a meme stock frenzy. Trading was halted multiple times due to volatility. Gill's posts, which included memes and movie clips, spurred retail investor interest, boosting GameStop and AMC stocks. Analysts warn that current high inflation and interest rates make a repeat of the 2021 rally unlikely to last.

Significant developments have marked recent events in the cryptocurrency world. Russia is set to enforce a new regulatory bill to crack down on crypto.

At the same time, Pudgy Penguins have achieved a remarkable milestone by selling over one million toys in the past year.
