AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) has now marked four consecutive days on the NYSE Threshold Securities List.

The movie theatre chain made the list on Friday making it the third time this year.

Yahoo Finance says the reason why stock tickers make it on the NYSE Threshold Securities List is due to market manipulation through the process of naked shorting, still there are skeptics.

The NYSE Threshold Securities List is a list of securities whose transactions failed to settle for five consecutive settlement days.

how long has AMC been on the Threshold Securities List

FTDs, or Failure-to-deliver occurs when one party in a trading contract (whether it’s shares, futures, or options) fails to deliver on their obligations.

These failures derive due to buyers not having enough money to take delivery and pay for the transaction at settlement.

In the case of sellers, it means not having the goods to meet that transaction.

“Settlement failures may be indicative of improper naked short selling”, according to Investopedia.

The last time AMC made the list, it stayed on it for an entire month.

In April, The SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) violated the 13-day threshold rule, which states that a broker-dealer with fail-to-deliver positions for 13 consecutive settlement days must immediately close out the ‘FTD’ position by purchasing shares in the open market.

AMC should have seen big buying pressure but instead plunged after it was removed from the threshold list.

AMC stock is currently down more than -4% this month and up more than +12% this year-to-date.

A final decision in the latest AMC Entertainment lawsuit is coming very soon; however, the court will not rule on the terms of the settlement at the upcoming settlement hearing.

The Delaware Chancery Court is expected to provide new updates on June 29-30 regarding the lawsuit that seeks to prevent AMC Entertainment from converting its AMC Preferred Equity (NYSE:APE) into common stock, as well as a 1-for-10 reverse stock split.

In February, Allegheny County Employees’ Retirement System filed a lawsuit against AMC Entertainment claiming that the company and several of its directors violated state law to “eviscerate” the voting power of common stockholders, who had not supported issuing new shares.

The Allegheny County Employees’ Retirement System pursued a class-action complaint in Delaware’s Court of Chancery against AMC and its board members, including CEO Adam Aron, who received a temporary restraining order against the planned March 14 conversion vote.

Special Master Corinne Elise Amato has recommended that the court deny the objections to the proposed settlement.

“I recommend that the Court DENY the Objections to the Settlement as set forth herein,” Amato concluded in her 150-page report.

TheStreet says the final word of statement is expected on the two-day settlement hearing on June 29-30, but a court note by Vice Chancellor Zurn says the court will not rule the terms of settlement at the hearing.

Analyst Eric Wold says the conversion of APE’s into common shares will greatly benefit the company, helping it raise approximately $16 billion in equity.

However, the conversion comes with massive dilution which adds pressure towards downward trading.

And as we’ve seen in plain sight with Mullen Automotive, overleveraged hedge funds can easily bring the price back down, except shareholders are now left with significantly less shares.

    The SEC has to be cleaned out.

      Many would agree

  2. T.

    Since transactions require a broker, how is it that broker fails to deliver?
