What Went Down With MicroVision Stock Today?

Microvision, Inc (NASDAQ: MVIS) fell over 23% in the regular session on Tuesday.

What Happened: Shares of the technology company that makes lidar sensors and microdisplays tumbled for no specific reasons as investors likely resorted to profit-taking. 

MicroVision shares had shot up significantly for the last two trading sessions with the rise fueled by social media buzz.

The Redmond, Washington-based company maintained its grip over discussions on the Reddit forum r/WallStreetBets — best known for the short squeezes in shares of GameStop Corporation (NYSE: GME), AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc (NYSE: AMC), and Nokia Oyj (NYSE: NOK).

On WallStreetBets, MicroVision has emerged as a clear favorite in recent days. MicroVision attracted 2,451 mentions on the forum, followed by GameStop, which was mentioned 918 times, according to Quiver Quantitative data.

On Tuesday, “Mad Money” host Jim Cramer said he would rather be on the long side than on the short side of MicroVision.

Why It Matters: MicroVision has emerged as a “meme stock.” S3’s Ihor Dusaniwsky warned that bears could be “squeezed out of their positions due to losses,” as per Reuters.

“We are seeing shorting into a red-hot stock as shorts are looking for a pullback,” said Dusaniwsky.

Price Action: MicroVision shares closed 23.75% lower at $20.16 on Tuesday and rose almost 3.9% in the after-hours session to $20.94.
