While the subreddit WallStreetBets' (WSB) large wagers against short sellers and the resulting short squeezes have caused the shares of several companies to skyrocket in price, they have also resulted in high valuations for several fundamentally weak companies. So, we believe overvalued WSB stocks Root Inc. (ROOT) and Wrap Technologies (NASDAQ:WRAP), with bleak growth prospects, are best avoided now. Conversely, we think AZZ Inc . (NYSE:AZZ) and Del Taco Restaurant (TACO) should continue to deliver big gains and could be ideal picks now. So, read on.Following the success with GameStop Corporation (NYSE:GME) earlier this year, Reddit's WallStreetBets (WSB) community, which is known for betting on heavily shorted companies and squeezing out short-selling hedge funds, has triggered price rallies in many other stocks, irrespective of their fundamental strength.

While WSB typically targets fundamentally weak stocks with a considerable level of short interest, we believe that a few of the subreddit’s heavily discussed stocks possess sufficient fundamental strength to generate solid returns. AZZ Inc. (AZZ) and Del Taco Restaurant Inc. (TACO) are two such stocks. They could prove to be long-term winners on the back of their improving fundamentals. So, they could be solid bets now.

In contrast, with extremely high price levels relative to their underlying business fundamentals and financial strength, we think Root Inc. (ROOT) and Wrap Technologies Inc. (WRAP) could suffer a major pullback in the near term. Hence, these stocks are best avoided now.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well.

  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view.
