If the recent terminology coming from social media about investing has confused you, we've got you covered, here's what 'Tendies' means.

Tendies is a term born from Reddit's WallStreetBets community. Traders using the social media platform came up with the unique phrase and it has really caught on, especially during the meme stock craze that the market is currently experiencing. 

What is a meme stock? 

What exactly does Tendies mean for stocks? 

Tendies refer in general to any financial gain on the stock market and is used when traders make money from a stock. Many investors following meme stocks during the short-squeeze made a lot of cash if they timed it right, unfortunately, some people also lost a lot of their savings. 

What Is A Short-Squeeze?

"What in the world has trading got to do with tenders though?" I hear you ask. Well, it is a strange one I'll give you that. The tie between chicken tenders and financial gain comes from a 4CHAN (a popular image-based board) story about adult men who live with their mothers. They are then rewarded with good behavior by their parents with "Good Boy Points" which they then use to get chicken tenders or 'tendies.' 

The term goes along with WallStreetBets' self-deprecating humor. You see, if they portray themselves as tendie-eating nerds who still live at home, playing video games, there's not much left to make fun of them for. 

Here are some phrases where you could find Tendies being used: 

"I bought a hot tub with my TENDIES from Support.com stock."

"Thank you WallStreetBets for all my Tendies!" 

"In it for the Tendies, CLOV to the moon!"
