What got you talking last week

The biggest talking points of last week were the battle between instos and Redditors over GameStop (NYSE:GME) stock, and a small cap explorer which shared had the same ticker on the ASX – GME Resources (ASX:GME).

But among broader sectors, it was battery metals once again thanks to news out of several companies last week – particularly on Wednesday.
