    Preamble: Before the Gamestop short squeeze, I found myself sitting idle. I knew it was being discussed, but to what extent? I, like many other folk, am busy and simply do not have the time to track subreddit activity — so I built a website for us to keep tabs on company tickers being posted on Reddit.


    Results

    How it works: The program will scour the latest reddit posts from select subreddits (r/wallstreetbets, r/investing, r/daytrading, r/stockmarket, and r/stocks) every minute in the search for NYSE/NASDAQ company symbols. There is no weighting — upvotes/downvotes and karma have no impact. The program will simply increment a count if a post is found to contain a company symbol.

    The magic comes together when this information is displayed on the website:
    • The leaderboard is near real time — 1 minute delay
    • Daily, weekly, and monthly historical charts and sparklines
    • Read the latest post titles for malicious activity
    • Keep track of post percentage gain for the previous day, week, and month
    Vision: I want to make this website the hub for alternative data for the everyday investor. A lot of these tools are available to hedge fund managers and institutional investors. It doesn’t have to be that way. I plan to keep adding more datasets for you fine folks to add to your research.

    About me: I’m by all means a lurker and I apologize in advance for my bare reddit account. My name is Harveen and i’m a Canadian who started his venture in the United States a few years ago. I would consider myself a creator, but I have yet to launch something of my own. This website is fulfilling that dream. It’s completely independent, bootstrapped, and made by me, which makes me deeply proud. For all of you creators out there waiting to create, I encourage you to start :)

    I see it picked up PDT and PEG as tickers, rather than acronyms.
