During the pandemic, more and more people are getting involved with video games and esports to kill the time during the lockdowns. Like other gaming companies, AESE is experiencing an uprise in its share price. Other gaming companies and related business are also doing well during the pandemic.
The recent uprise inits share price has no reason despite we can assume that more and more people are getting interested in esports and now more people are looking to do esports business. The company stock is also considered as volatile because of sudden uprise and decline in the price.
