Some might attribute the ongoing meme stock phenomenon to retail fervor or options hedging by market makers—but what if there's more to the fad? If meme stocks are here to stay, Lily Francus, director of quant research strategy at Moody's Analytics, argues that it may be time to reevaluate the way investors approach corporate credit risk.

Interviewed by veteran financial journalist Maggie Lake. Show More
