Wall Street is baffled as AMC becomes one of the most purchased stocks on Fidelity in the past week.
Mark Taylor from Mirabaud Securities says “the ‘smart guys’ are confused and fighting from a position of weakness.”
But has the retail community really been that covert?
The retail community has been fighting against market injustices for over a year now, which a lot has been an effort to drive short sellers out of ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC and GameStop.
‘Meme stocks’ have been suppressed by market makers and short sellers in order to prevent the stocks’ high demand from causing further losses.
It was reported AMC short sellers had lost more than $1 billion this year so far.
Are retail investors about to deliver another blow to Wall Street?

AMC breaks $20 again
AMC Entertainment stock has broken the $20 levels again.
It’s going to have to hold well above $26-$27 if retail investors are to see it beyond $30 again.
AMC had peaked to $27.47 during the pre-market but underperformed like majority of stocks.
While trading volume in the past two days has been over 100m, today’s volume showed signs of cooling momentum.
Still, AMC is holding around $22.50 relatively well.
Shareholders are loading up on the stock prior to the new dividend distributions.
AMC will be distributing 1 APE stock for every 1 AMC share investors hold.
The new security will be tradable in the market and will provide the company with liquidity to pay down their debt and raise cash if need be.
For investors, a cash cow that may significantly grow in value.
This incentive is attracting more investors to buy the theatre chain stock and causing confusion amongst short sellers.
But there’s one thing mainstream media isn’t discussing, and that’s that retail activists and shareholders aren’t going anywhere.
Some folks truly don’t know
The retail community might have been painted as degenerates that originated from the Wall Street Bets Reddit forum and that what happened last year simply happened.
But that’s not the case at all.
The activist community has grown and has aimed at the SEC for its incompetence in market structure.
Marketing campaigns have sprawled on the streets of Chicago calling out Citadel’s Ken Griffin for market manipulation and Gary Gensler for allegedly being complicit.
Even the DTCC is under fire by retail investors yearning for change in the market.
The Depositary Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) had its windows covered with flyers that read – DTCC, Disgraceful, Thieving, Complicit, Committee “allowing financial crimes under their watch”.
The market manipulation that has suppressed ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC for over a year now have prevented the stock from squeezing the big players from the game.
Loopholes have raised the attention of millions of investors who simply want to participate in a fair market where supply and demand dictate price action, not market makers and complicit regulators.
Some folks don’t truly know this, but this is a new breed of retail investors.
‘Meme stocks’ become beacons for change
So why are people becoming obsessive with stocks such as AMC and GameStop?
It’s because in today’s world, people are obsessed with real positive change.
For change in their daily lives, change in the financial lives, and change in the markets for the future generation.
Wall Street will very soon notice it’s time to pass the torch.
Finance is changing, culture is changing.
This is why AMC stock has become one of the most purchased stocks in the market.
