The shares of Clover Health Investments Corp (NASDAQ:CLOV) are down 2.2% at $12.69 at last check. Though a reason for today's negative price action remains unclear, the equity has fallen dramatically from its June 9, record high of $28.85, after it became the target of Reddit traders roughly a year after its Wall Street debut. The meme stock has found a floor at the $12.50 level, however, which coincides with support at the 20-day moving average. Over the last three months, CLOV has added 72.5%.

The brokerage bunch is mostly bearish towards the security. Two of the three analysts in coverage called CLOV a tepid "hold" or worse, while only one said "strong buy." Plus, the 12-month consensus target price of $9.50 is a 25% discount to the stock's current perch.

Meanwhile, the 41.40 million shares sold short still makes up a whopping 36.7% of the stock's available float. Should Reddit traders continue to blast CLOV, shares could go even higher.
