A lot of you might be wondering what’s a good exit strategy guide for an AMC short squeeze. I have an excellent exit strategy guide for you. I will help you determine what type of retail investors surround the AMC community and help you take an approach you might have not thought of.
Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.
Lets get started.
I’ve received emails and enthusiastic responses on the discord to write on this subject matter. After all, it’s a very important topic to discuss, right? We all want to be ready for when an AMC short squeeze occurs.
I want you all to make money. Not just money though, stupid money. But it will be up to you to decide just how much you’re willing to gain during the process of a squeeze.
How long can a short squeeze last?
A short squeeze can last several days to several weeks. When Volkswagen squeezed it lasted about 3 days before it started descending. GameStop on the other hand lasted several weeks and has gone down very slowly.
In a recent video with Trey’s Trades, he gives his personal opinion that an AMC short squeeze may potentially last weeks, just like GameStop’s. And I agree.
With that being said, lets start by discussing the 3 types of sellers.
3 types of retail investors in AMC
There are 3 main types of retail investors holding AMC stock. Identifying which type of retail investor you are will help you determine your own personal exit strategy for when this stock squeezes. In short, they are the:
- Get in and get out sellers
- Anxious profit taker
- Diamond hand seller
I’m going to break down these 3 types of sellers for you so you can determine and identify where your conviction is in the stock.
Get in and get out seller
This type of retail investor is in it for a quick buck. These retail investors will cash in at the first sight of profits. This group will be a very small group of people, mainly due to the lack of DD (due diligence) in the stock itself.
If you’re a new retail investor and don’t have the slightest clue as to what’s been going on with AMC Entertainment, I recommend you do a little bit of digging. I’ve published several posts for the community which you can find under the ‘top posts & pages’ column on the right side of my blog.
Negligence of researching information could just cost you a once in a lifetime opportunity. This AMC exit strategy will not yield impressive profits.
Anxious profit taker
The anxious profit taker is most likely going to be the retail investor who holds longer but takes profits at the first sight of dipping in the market.
Retail investors who cashed in on GameStop when it dropped back down to $193 after reaching $347 missed out on the bounce back up to $325. Some retail investors will fall under this category simply because of the anxious emotions that are simply human nature.
Remember this example when AMC squeezes and it starts to come down. Holding a little longer could potentially prove to be a better financial decision. Refrain from allowing anxiety to make a financial decision for you.
Your AMC exit strategy should serve you to make the most out of this trade.
Diamond hand seller
This is going to be majority of the AMC community who have been deeply involved in the research and fighting for the cause. This type of retail investor is not looking for a quick buck, they’re not looking to double nor triple their money. These retail investors are going to be the ones who get to experience a life changing event.
Diamond hand sellers are the retail investors who are going to call the supply and demand. They’re going to hold the stock past $100, $500, and possibly even $1,000. Again, we will find more out as this short squeeze begins to unfold.
These retail investors are the seasoned apes in the community who are not leaving until they’ve made enough money to change their lives and the lives of many others.
Millionaires in the making
Diamond hand sellers’ exit strategy is to take profits extremely high and then put some money back into AMC when it dips. This AMC exit strategy has immense potential to yield massive profits.
How many AMC shares do I need to become a millionaire?
This is going to highly depend on two factors.
- The number of shares you have.
- The share price of the stock.
If you own 1,000 share of AMC stock then that means the stock price will need to be worth $1,000 for you to make $1,000,000. Keep in mind that you will need to pay taxes on this. I published an article where you can determine your tax rate here so be sure to bookmark it for later.
And if you own 5,000 shares of AMC stock then the price will only need to go up to $200 for you to make $1,000,000.
But maybe you’re not looking to make 1MM, and that’s okay.
Your number of shares = your multiplier.
Everyone’s AMC exit strategy will be different
See there is no actual number that I can tell you when to pull out. This article is to help you identify your conviction towards the stock and the overall sentiment of the community surrounding AMC and its data.
More data will be released to the community as the squeeze unfolds which could help you navigate your way to maximum profitability.
AMC’s charts will reveal a lot of information when this squeeze happens. This is when the community will begin to take a more serious approach to identify when to sell.
How to identify when to sell
An excellent way to determine when you should sell your shares is to look at the number of shares you currently hold and make an honest assessment of how high you think AMC’s stock price can potentially go up to. Then, set a number you will be happy with profiting from.
Remember, an AMC short squeeze could last several weeks. This means you have time to identify when to sell as the stock goes up or down. You might even see yourself shooting higher depending on the stocks price trend.
This information will come to light when we have the analytical resources.
Example of an AMC exit strategy
If you’re holding 100 shares of AMC and your goal is to make $50,000 then you’d have to sell at $500 per share. The same applies if you’re holding 5,000 shares and your goal is to make $4,000,000. Your sell target would be $800 per share.
In this scenario the stock could hypothetically speaking have squeezed high instantaneously. And again, there could be many scenarios but I’ll go with this to use as an example.
Set a profit target for yourself and stick to it.
Don’t be afraid to take your profits once you’ve set your goals down. In the end, they are your goals and your goals alone. The leaders in the community will do our best to help you maximize your gains; however, if you feel you’ve made a life-changing profit then take it.
Here’s a breakdown of how you can calculate your exit strategy.
Create a bracket
Create a bracket and note down on paper how much money you’ll make with AMC’s stock price at $100, $200, $400, $600, $800, $1,000 and so on. This will allow you to see your possibilities in writing.
Here you can determine your risk tolerance. Everyone’s will be different to some degree. You might select $600 as being your absolute bottom with your price target being $1,000.
This example is just one way you can prepare and plan for an AMC exit strategy. Your numbers might be higher than these and that’s great too. Just make sure it’s in line with the data, otherwise you might be left bag holding.
By creating a bracket for yourself you can plan and execute almost immediately when the stock hits your price target.
Increase your multiplier for bigger profits
Contribute to your position if you’re not happy with where your price targets are at.
Something I’ve personally done is I’ve added to my position after doing some math and locking down my goals. This will help me pivot in the event that the share price doesn’t reach my expectations.
My goals will require me to diamond hand this and I’m 100% okay with this.
Signs a short squeeze is over
Like any other short squeeze in history, the stock eventually has to come down. Signs that indicate a short squeeze is over include:
- Price action gradually declines after several weeks to months (as seen with GameStop)
- Short borrow fee rate declines
- The stock will begin to consolidate oppose to running up
- The overall bullish sentiment is over
Most of this data will be presented to the community by analysts and DD reporters like myself. When there are strong indications that the short squeeze is over, you will know. The community will not allow other members to get left behind.
How to prepare yourself for a short squeeze
I’m confident most retail investors who have done their homework are going to make a lot of money. One thing you can do to identify your opportunities is to continuously educate yourself as this short squeeze unfolds.
You can watch analysts on YouTube as they update the community with AMC chart trends. I will be providing you with value here as well as on my Discord group.
When should I exit my position in AMC?
As you can tell, there’s no specific number that can be generalized for every retail investor.
Retail investors should be setting their goals and abide by them. If your goal is to make $100k then shoot for $100k. If it’s to make $1,000,000 then you can certainly do so. But shoot for the moon because that’s where retail investors intend on holding onto.
So, although everyone’s AMC exit strategy will be a little different, most retail investors are diamond handing the stock. You can rest assure the community will have your back when it comes to strategies that occur in the playfield.
For instance, if AMC squeezes up to $800 and it consolidates then we can anticipate there’s room for supply and demand. Not all shorts would have covered which means retail investors can continue to drive the price action up by holding their positions.
In this scenario you could continue to ride it out and shoot bigger. But if we see a pattern laddering down after about a week or so, then that’s a good indication you can begin taking profits (on the way down).
Can AMC really reach $1000+?
AMC, like any other stock has no ceiling. The difference here is that AMC can have one of the biggest short squeezes in history mainly due to how heavily shorted the stock is. Short squeezes are violent and suppressed movement can also play a role in its gains.
There hasn’t been a short squeeze in history that has had a community like AMC does, with the exception of GameStop of course. We also haven’t seen a battle between hedge funds and retail investors like that of with AMC shareholders.
Hedge funds suffered significant loses amounting to billions with GameStop. The last thing they want is to lose more money to a second company so they doubled down their short borrowing power with AMC. This means more short shares to borrow equivalate to more short sell loses, and potentially a MOASS (mother of all short squeezes).
Do not panic sell
One thing I do want to express to the community is to not panic sell as you begin to see perpetual gains with AMC. These series of gains are known as gamma squeezes.
They can be a result of an increase in retail investors buying the stock as well as small short sellers beginning to cover their positions.
An AMC exit strategy should be level headed. Get involved in the community to see how everyone is holding up through the gains. Chances are many retail investors within the AMC community are going to be holding the stock relatively high.
If something needs to be addressed surrounding the squeeze and its movement, the AMC community will communicate it.
Keep up with the latest news in the stock
As I mentioned earlier, a lot of people will be covering the stock as it begins to move upwards and ultimately squeeze. This means you will always have the help and support from analysts and others in the community that will help contribute to your AMC exit strategy.
Analysts I trust in the community include Trey’s Trades and Roensch Capital. You can watch their analytical videos on YouTube.
I would stay clear of headlines from the likes of Yahoo Finance, The Fool, InvestorPlace, and MarketWatch as they have been known to spread fear, uncertainty, and doubt (known as FUD).

I post the latest short borrow fee rates and updates on both my Twitter and Discord Group. I will personally be updating the community with news and chart trends from analysts as this squeeze unfolds.
My mission is to help you make as much money as possible so be sure to join the community and stay informed as this event unravels.
I’m confident the community will continue to keep everyone informed on chart trends and AMC exit strategies as this historic event unfolds.
