Today’s move follows a 27% gain yesterday for PIK stock, which closed the trading session at $6.05. The big jump higher comes as Kidpik draws interest on social media channels such as Twitter, notably from popular stock influencer Zack Morris. Kidpik hasn’t released any news that would move the share price. Prior to the latest increases, shares had fallen nearly 30% since their November IPO.

With that in mind, here are five things investors should know about Kidpik as its stock grabs the spotlight.
