What Does TENDIES Mean in a Text?

TENDIES means "Financial gain on the stock market." Tendies is a term the traders Reddit's Wall Street Bets (WSB) use to describe money or financial gain.

Tendies is short for chicken tenders. The phrase that comes from old 4CHAN greentext stories (see below for an example) about grown men living with their mom. A man who relies on his mom for everything is rewarded for good behavior and taking care of himself with "Good Boy Points" (GBP), which he redeems for his favorite food: chicken tenders.

"Tendies" has roots in WallStreetBets' use of self-deprecating humor. The logic is, if WallStreetBetters advertise themselves as tendie-eating retards who live in their momís basement playing video games, thereís not much other people can tease them for.
