New research has found what the most popular stocks across TikTok and Instagram are.
The study by UK financial services provider CMC Markets analysed data from TikTok viewing numbers and Instagram posts focused on stocks to see which are being talked about on social media the most.
It found that Tesla is the most popular stock on social media, with more than 45,400,000 views on TikTok, posted with the hashtag #TeslaStock, and 28,391 posts hashtagged with the same thing. In addition, it is the second most searched stock in the UK on Google according to Ahrefs, with more than 282,000 searches a month.
AMC Entertainment was the second most popular stock across social media. TikToks hashtagged with #AMCStock have amassed more than 25,800,000 views on the platform, and 14,834 Instagram posts have been made to date. It is also the most popular stock based on Google searches from Ahrefs, with more than 490,000 searches monthly in the UK.
Coming in third place is Apple, thanks to more than 11,700,000 views on TikToks posted with the hashtag #AppleStock, and 12,436 Instagram posts made with the hashtag. The stock also receives more than 55,000 monthly Google searches in the UK based on data from Ahrefs.
GameStop takes fourth place on the list, following closely behind Apple with 14,100,000 views on TikTok for hashtagged posts and 8,871 posts captioned with the hashtag #GameStopStock.

Commenting on the findings, a spokesperson from CMC Markets said: “While these findings might illustrate what stocks get coverage on social media, it also shows the sheer amount of views one can get from posting about them. Many people are turning to social media for their information on the stock market and even tips and tricks for using it properly. The inclusion of ‘meme stocks’ like AMC and GameStop is no surprise either, with social media sites being some of the biggest pioneers for the rise and fall of these stocks.”
The study was conducted by CMC Markets, a UK-based financial services company that offers online trading in shares, spread betting, contracts for difference and foreign exchange across world markets.
