Panel – Sector focus: The rise of retail bankruptcies and meme stocks

Against the current economic downturn, it is expected that defaults are expected to rise again within the retail and consumer sector, with notable examples such as Bed Bath & Beyond's Chapter 11 filing  capturing news headlines. At the same time, the phenomenon of meme stocks, which came to the fore during the pandemic, are back in the spotlight, with retail investors looking to trigger short squeezes on unprofitable companies. Our experts will discuss the opportunities and evaluate the risk and reward profile of the sector.

  • Which retail companies are in danger of going bankrupt next?
  • Bed Bath & Beyond – what are the implications of this case for the sector?
  • Meme stocks – why are people investing in companies on the verge of bankruptcy, and how are they impacting the market?
  • What is the outlook for the rest of 2023?
