Who are the AMC apes?
They’re the retail investors fighting for market change in our financial system.
We’re the ones who saved AMC and GameStop from going bankrupt.
Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides you with articles on stock, crypto, and market news. Here are 10 myths about the AMC apes the media has wrong.
Let’s get started!
1. “Apes Have No Education”
Apes actually come from a variety of backgrounds and yes, professions.
Retail investors in the community range from your average 9-5 hustlers to business owners, doctors, and even lawyers.
Though many identities are kept hidden, it’s not difficult to see why.
People from all over the world have become an ape for more reasons than just money.
2. “Apes Want To Overthrow The Government”
Apes don’t want to overthrow the government, apes actually just want a fair market.
Contrary to how apes are portrayed in the mainstream media, the community is not made up of hooligans who want to overthrow the government.
Apes simply want government to hear the communities concerns regarding the market.
The ape community has made it a mission to create real change for a fair market thus sparking a real movement.
3. Not Everyone Is A New Retail Investor
The community attracted many new retail investors.
However, many apes have been investing in the stock market for years.
I’ve actually provided the community with my personal long-term winning stock picks for when they’re ready to diversify.
Other apes in the community show new retail investors how to read chart patterns and even how to day-trade other plays that aren’t AMC or GME.
This is the community where the average person can not only learn how to invest in stocks, but also gain magnitudes of value and knowledge.
#4. We Don’t All Hang Out On Reddit
Although apes started on Reddit, a lot of apes don’t actually affiliate themselves as a ‘Redditor’ or with r/wallstreetbets.
AMC and GME apes have separated from r/wallstreetbets mainly due to an increase in infiltration from shills, toxic persons who’s mission is to bring down the community.
Subcommunities are now much tighter around a variety of influencers within the community as a whole.
And although we don’t often identify as community leaders, influencers have done a great job at keeping retail investors together.
#5. We’re Not 19 Years Old
Contrary to what the media might think, the ape community is not made up of 19 year-olds.
In fact, majority of apes are much older than that.
But, I won’t give that information out to marketers.
The community isn’t naïve, there are a lot of wise and intelligent people with real stories and lots of experience here.
The media often times portrays us as rebellious youngsters.
But I believe many of us will actually be the future leaders of our nation.
#6. We Don’t Actually Eat Crayons, Well Sorta
Eating crayons is a taunt and is part of the ape community culture.
It’s a message to smart money that we’re dumb money, yet we’re making money while they lose it by shorting AMC and GME stock.
The meaning of eating crayons originally separated us from formally gathering as a community to buy these stocks.
“Buy and hold, but what do I know, I’m just a crayon eating ape.”
Although I must say, I wouldn’t be surprised if some apes do consume these delicious snacks 😅😂.
#7. “Apes Just Want To Make Quick Money”
If apes wanted to make quick money, then the community would be day-trading AMC and GME stock.
However, that is not the ape way.
Apes buy and hold the stock.
Seasoned apes who got in early could have cashed out tremendous amounts of gains but continue to hold because it’s not about making a quick buck.
It’s about making life changing money through a short squeeze play.
Apes have a why.
In fact, leave a comment below what your why is.
Why do you hold AMC and/or GME stock?
#8. “Apes Worship Adam Aron and Ryan Cohen”
The community has a tremendous amount of respect for AMC CEO, Adam Aron and GameStop Chairman, Ryan Cohen.
We support them because they’re running the businesses of America’s two favorite stocks.
We want to see them succeed, but we don’t worship them.
In fact, most apes are willing to continue investing in both companies after MOASS, especially if a dividend is announced.
#9. We’re Actually Not Jim Cramer’s Friend
Despite The Street’s Jim Cramer portraying to be close to the ape community, he can’t sit with us.
Few apes actually respect the guy, but he can’t sit with us.
Did I mention that?
Mr. Cramer has just contradicted himself too much and the community is huge on trust.
We have more trust for FOX’s Charles Payne and CNBC’s Melissa Lee.
#10. Apes Invest In More Than Just ‘Meme Stocks’
The ape community might have a ton of new retail investors only dedicated to AMC or GME stock specifically.
Apes are the retail investors who are finding the early plays and putting their money to work for long-term financial gain.
These Retail Investors Fight For What’s Right
The AMC and GME communities are a beacon for change.
We seek to establish a fair market so that future generations no longer get taken advantage of by corrupt hedge funds and financial institutions.
I’m confident the fight for a fair market will further continue even after AMC and GME MOASS.
What else does mainstream media need to know about the community?
