Wall Street's top regulator says a report on meme stock mania is coming this summer

Wall Street's top regulator says a report examining meme stock mania will be coming "sometime this summer."

The big picture: It will "detail the range of activities" that came out of the January events," SEC chair Gary Gensler said Thursday at a third congressional hearing held to dissect the GameStop trading phenomenon.

Why it matters: The report could be a blueprint for tougher regulation — or a signal that the market chaos won't lead to anything beyond the attention frenzy that's since dried up.

Catch up quick: Gensler fielded the majority of lawmaker questions, though two of the saga's other key players — the head of a clearinghouse and the top executive at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority — testified alongside him.

One fiery exchange: Gensler was pressed on whether investing is gambling. He wouldn't say.

  • "It's risk-taking and risk-taking can be in different forms — I'm trying to use my words carefully," Gensler said.
  • It's a debate that has dragged in legendary investors like Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, who have blamed Robinhood for turning the stock market into a casino — something the trading app pushed back on.
  • Gensler noted the SEC is examining options for apps like Robinhood that "gamify" and reward more trading.

Worth noting: For a hearing about GameStop, several lawmakers focused on everything but. The result was a broader glimpse of Gensler's agenda as head of the SEC, though he often dodged questions by noting he's only been at the agency for a few weeks.

  • On cryptocurrency exchanges: Gensler hinted Congress could play a role in bringing better "investor protection" since they "currently have no regulatory framework."
  • On climate change disclosures: They could help bring "some consistency and comparability" for companies that disclose climate risk.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
