(NYSEAMERICAN: INDO), which is the latest battleground stock of self-styled retail apes. A month ago, it was hovering around $4.30 per share. Yesterday, it closed at $61.50.

Last month around Valentine's Day, someone fell in love with Datasea, Inc. (NASDAQ:DTSS). The company's stock price, which had been declining since Jul. 2021, suddenly sprang to life on Feb. 10, 2022. Over the following 12 days, the price rose 81% to $2.64 per share.
