MicroVision (MVIS - Free Report) shares ended the last trading session 5.2% higher at $13.14. The jump came on an impressive volume with a higher-than-average number of shares changing hands in the session. This compares to the stock's 34.4% loss over the past four weeks.

The increase in share price can be attributed to MicroVision’s name being cited on a post on Reddit’s WallStreetBets platform.

The company’s automotive LiDAR products are also gaining traction which bodes well for the top line growth.

This maker of drivers for miniature video displays is expected to post quarterly loss of $0.02 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +50%. Revenues are expected to be $0.75 million, down 49% from the year-ago quarter.
