Why It Matters: GameStop continues to see high interest on the forum after the videogame retailer unveiled its deals earlier this week for Black Friday.

Tesla remains among the most-discussed stocks on the forum after it was reported that CEO Elon Musk sold $1 billion worth of the automaker’s shares on Tuesday to meet tax withholding obligations.

A post on the forum also poked fun at Ford Motor Co. (NYSE:F) after it was reported that the automaker is installing charging stations at its dealerships that resemble Tesla Superchargers.

It was reported Palantir Technologies co-founder and CEO Alex Karp said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” that the company is positioned for continued results.

An investor on the WSB forum noted that while there are several things that he likes about the Palantir stock, he is losing faith in the company as it is relentlessly diluting its shares for “employee compensation.”
