RACHELLE AKUFFO: Well, it was a busy and upbeat week for the markets, the S&P 500 notching its fourth straight weekly gain. And for the NASDAQ, the longest winning streak since November. Now we're going to take a look at some of the trending tickers right now on Yahoo Finance. So leading the way right now is new hot meme stock Bed, Bath & Beyond. Now the stock closing up more than 13% on the day. And just in the last month, shares have more than doubled.

Now there's no clear headline on what's moving the stock today. But when it comes to the meme names, that doesn't always seem to matter. And of course, Peloton shares jumping on the news of the latest round of restructuring. It announced another round of layoffs, this time, nearly 800 workers. And it's also raising some prices on some of its premium products. Other trending names right now, Apple, ChargePoint Holdings, and betting company, DraftKings.
