Yahoo Lists AMC and GameStop in Mark Cuban’s Portfolio

Mark Cuban AMC and GameStop
Market News: Does Mark Cuban own AMC or GameStop shares?

Yahoo Finance just published 10 stocks to buy now tied to Mark Cuban’s portfolio.

AMC and GameStop are two retail favorites listed on Yahoo’s list (below).

Mark Cuban jumped on WallStreetBets to do an AMA last year after the ‘meme stock’ frenzy first occurred in late January of 2021.

“If you can afford to hold the stock, you hold. I don’t own it, but that’s what I would do.

Why? because when RH and the other online brokers open it back up to buyers, then we will see what WSB is really made of. That is when you get to make it all work.

I have no doubt that there are funds and big players that have shorted this stock again thinking they are smarter than everyone on WSB.

I know you are going to hate to hear this, but the lower it goes, the more powerful WSB can be stepping up to buy the stock again. The only question is what broker do you use. Do you stay with RH, who is going to have the same liquidity problems over and over again, or do you as a group find a broker with a far, far, far better balance sheet that won’t cut you off and then go ham on Wall Street.”

Now, although Yahoo Finance listed both AMC and GameStop tied to Mark Cuban’s stock portfolio, he said in the AMA that he does not own them.

He mentioned to CNBC later that his son did trade AMC and Blackberry.

Mark Cuban on the SEC

Mark Cuban on the SEC

Mark Cuban and Elon Musk have been two billionaires that have blatantly spoken out against the SEC.

Since its inception, the SEC has sworn to protect retail investors but has only proven to be complicit to market injustices.

An out of touch Gary Gensler has made it rather clear that keeping his job is more important than actually enforcing the law.

Here’s what Mark Cuban had to say about the SEC:

“The SEC is a mess. I wouldn’t trust them to do the right thing ever. It’s an agency built by and for lawyers to be lawyers and win cases rather than do the right thing

If the SEC gave a shit about ANYONE other than Wall Street you would be able to go there right now and read bright line guidelines about insider trading, shorting, what is a pump and dump, what are the rules for cutting off the purchase of stocks like happened with GME et al

But they won’t. They would rather litigate to regulate, which means they love to sue people in order to create new legal precedents.

All you need to know about the SEC and how badly they want to fuck the little guy is that they have the option of using JUDGES THAT WORK FOR THE SEC when they sue you rather than you have the option to have jury of your peers in front of a judge that is independent. Thats how bad the SEC is. If you want fair markets that doesn’t benefit Wall Street call your local politician and show them this.”

AMC’s Short Interest Rises to 21.64%

AMC short interest today
Market News: AMC Short Interest Today | Franknez.com.

AMC’s short interest is rising again.

Last week the movie theatre chain’s short interest was around 17%, according to Fintel.

Now we’re seeing a sharp rise in shorting as the stock begins to move upwards again.

AMC shares are currently up +44% in the past month, with a recent high of $9.15 per share.

Shares went as low as $5.05 but the heavy demand zone around $6 levels were able to create a bounce.

Will AMC share prices continue to rise?

Let’s discuss it.

Join the newsletter for market news alerts straight to your email.

The Markets in General Are Bouncing

The SPY has created a triple bottom around the $360 level so far and hasn’t come down since.

First in June, again in September, and last in October.

October is the month when SPY began to bounce from this major level of support.

Around the same time, AMC Entertainment stock was having a bounce from its major level of support around $6.30 per share.

Is it possible the market in general has hit the bottom?

It’s very probable, although it’s fair to mention any official talks of a recession can easily crash the market.

If we do begin to see further continuation, we might enter a short squeeze season where stocks begin to have sudden price surges from shorts closing positions.

Last year, AMC and GameStop gained mainstream attention when retail investors began to buy heavily into these two ‘meme stocks’ despite their high short interest.

Users over at Wall Street Bets identified that with enough buying pressure, they could force short sellers to rush and close their short positions in order to refrain from taking on massive losses.

This buy-back of shares would further fuel the buying pressure already being applied from retail investors; GameStop shot up over $483 per share.

In June of 2021, AMC Entertainment stock surged from $14 per share to $72 per share.

Will History Repeat Itself?

AMC Short Squeeze
Market News: Will AMC squeeze again?

AMC’s short interest was around 21%-22% before short positions began to get closed.

AMC’s current short interest is at 21.64%.

This means that with enough buying pressure, retail investors might just have the chance to recreate the events that occurred last year, possibly even bigger.

But I’m curious to hear your thoughts on AMC’s rising short interest today.

Will AMC Stock Squeeze in 2022? [Short Interest Data]

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?
AMC Short Squeeze – AMC Entertainment 2022 – AMC Stock Price – AMC Stock Squeeze

Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

The Fool thinks you should sell your stock, but retail investors aren’t budging.

Mainstream media who serve hedge funds in a conflict of interest have been egging retail investors to not buy the stock all of 2021.

If you listened to The Fool who told you not to buy AMC when its share price was low, then you would have missed out on a trade that went as high as 3000% in gains!

While the runup to $72 per share might have caused AMC’s short interest to drop to 14% from 20%, AMC’s short interest has now gone up to 21%.

Ladies and gentlemen, AMC stock has plenty of room for growth in 2022.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides retail investors market news with integrity. Today we’re discussing AMC’s short interest data to determine whether it will squeeze in 2022.

Let’s dive right into it!

If you haven’t subscribed to the newsletter, be sure to do so that way you don’t miss out on new information.

Mainstream media wants retail to lose

It’s no secret the financial platforms who have been attacking AMC stock are tied together.

Wall Street Journal’s parent company is News Corp., who also owns Barrons, MarketWatch, and DOW Jones Newswire.

Well, there’s a relationship between Citadel Securities’ CEO Ken Griffin and News Corp (he owns stock).

This creates conflict of interest because of the influence these people in power have who are shorting AMC stock.

Citadel Securities is one of the top 10 financial institutions shorting AMC stock.

So, let’s look at the data that shows whether or not AMC will squeeze in 2022.

AMC Short Interest Data (2022)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

AMC’s short interest is currently at 21.55% (last updated on September 5th).

The short interest tells us the percentage of a stocks float that is being shorted (shares have been borrowed and not yet closed).

Because AMC is heavily shorted at 21%, this is a short squeeze play in 2022.

A 21% short interest is equivalent to approximately 196.09 million shares on loan (shares that have been borrowed and have not yet been closed).

When AMC’s short interest dropped from 20% to 14% (6 points), the share price rose to $72 per share.

New short positions have brought AMC’s short interest up to 21% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

AMC’s short interest for 2022 is updated here daily for free, via Ortex.

Subscribe for more content and updates.

Whether AMC’s stock price is up or down, the short interest tells us a large portion of AMC’s float continues to be shorted.

The short interest is the main recipe for a short squeeze.

Will AMC stock squeeze in 2022? Game over short sellers | AMC Stock 2022 – AMC Stock Price

AMC has a high enough short interest to squeeze shorts from their positions in 2022.

Sitting at 21% short interest, it’s more than enough to get the price up well into the high hundreds of dollars per share.

Whether regulators will investigate naked shares, FTDs, and other forms of counterfeit shares for hedge funds to cover is another topic.

AMC will need momentum if it’s to see another massive runup in share price.

Furthermore, hedge funds will lead their customers into losses for the second year in a row if retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock in 2022.

AMC Entertainment stock has plenty of room for growth and mainstream media doesn’t want you to know it.

Who is AMC stock for?

Popcorn

AMC stock is for the retail investors who are willing to take a little risk to multiply their investment through a short squeeze play.

A short squeeze play is a long commitment with incredible upside.

If you’re lucky enough to get involved in the ape community you’ll find yourself fighting for a fair and transparent market, where your voice means everything.

Reasons why AMC wont squeeze in 2022..

I’ve always been transparent with the community.

There are many of you who got in when I first began publishing the data early last year and are sitting on unrealized gains today.

And although AMC could have squeezed during various occasions last year, there are still things that can hinder AMC from squeezing this year.

Here’s a list of things that will refrain AMC from squeezing shorts from their positions:

  1. Retail investors start selling AMC stock
  2. Retail investors stop buying AMC stock
  3. New buyers aren’t introduced to the stock or short interest data
  4. Number of day-traders increase
  5. Regulators don’t enforce margin calls / protect retail from market manipulation

The AMC community has not had a problem holding or buying the stock.

One of the biggest problems the community faces today is regulators not protecting retail investors against the predatorial strategies from hedge funds.

The community has always been a beacon for change.

Apes will need to voice market concerns to elevate awareness.

Market regulation in 2022

Market regulation 2022 SEC

AMC stock had multiple chances to squeeze in 2021, however, hedge funds always found a loophole that would prevent them from reporting information, or trading stock in the lit exchange.

Market manipulation continues to be a threat to every retail investor in the market.

AMC Entertainment was on the brink of extinction, it was about to go bankrupt.

Hedge funds took this opportunity to overleverage their short positions in the stock, betting it would close forever.

Once retail investors got in and saved the company, the community uncovered a number of market manipulation tactics that allowed hedge funds to prevent the stock’s share price from soaring.

The fight for a fair market continues in 2022.

For the ape community, this is more than just a short squeeze play.

It’s about freedom.

AMC Entertainment Trades +42% in The Past Month

AMC Short Squeeze 2023
Market News: Signs of an AMC short squeeze in 2023 arise.

AMC Entertainment trades higher in the past month as it breaks major support levels it created last year when the stock soared to $72 per share.

The movie theatre chain had a low of $5.05 in the past 30 days but has now begun trading above $8 levels.

AMC was halted on Wednesday after surging past $8 per share at market open and had a high of $9.15 that same day.

But it seems momentum is just getting started for the ‘meme stock’.

What we’re seeing this Friday is a trend upwards with consolidation, a high indication of bullish sentiment.

This healthy trend may suggest that market makers are preparing to make their money going long after shorting the stock since its all-time high.

And with SPY’s bounce in the market, it could feed that confirmation bias.

Will AMC undergo a massive bounce as the market in general begins to trend upwards again?

And is an AMC short squeeze in 2023 possible?

Let’s discuss it.

Join the newsletter for weekly market news and updates.

The Market is Shifting

Stock Market Bounce

The S&P 500 index has seen better days this year, but the SPY hit a triple bottom around $360 so far and hasn’t come down since.

First in June, again in September, and last in October.

October is the month when SPY began to bounce from this major level of support.

Around the same time, AMC Entertainment stock was having a bounce from its major level of support around $6.30 per share.

I sent out an alert that same month informing the retail community of the buying opportunity.

AMC Entertainment is now up more than 40% since the publication of my ‘buy alert‘ on the blog and newsletter.

Take it from someone who said buy AMC at $6 per share last year before it ultimately surged to $72 per share and crippled Wall Street.

The point I’m making is the market is shifting and it’s very possible we begin to see AMC retrace to higher levels it created last year.

Of course, there are many factors that may break or make this a possibility.

The major one being retail and institutional investors both buying the stock en masse.

Which as we know, usually tends to happen during a bull market.

AMC’s Fundamentals Today will Play a HUGE Role Tomorrow

Institutions were buying AMC stock mainly during the second quarter of 2021 when retail investors sparked confidence towards the upside.

And retail investors haven’t left despite massive shorting in the market.

Based on what we’ve seen in the past, a new all-time high for AMC could very well come to fruition in the next bull market.

The reason behind this observation is that institutions and retail investors were buying AMC Entertainment stock even when the movie theater chain was on its knees.

There was still big suppression from short sellers who did not see any fundamental value in the company.

It’s for this sole reason why more institutions will likely purchase the stock during the next bull run, because AMC has significantly improved fundamentally.

AMC’s fundamentals today are going to play a huge role tomorrow.

It’s just a matter of time before retail investors get to see this play out in real-time.

Will AMC Have a Short Squeeze in 2023?

Will AMC squeeze in 2023? Franknez.com.
Will AMC squeeze in 2023? Franknez.com.

Granted that we enter a bull market in 2023, it’s very possible AMC has a short squeeze due to excessive buying pressure from both institutional and retail investors.

Fintel is currently reporting AMC’s short interest at 21.64%, which means there are plenty of open short positions that may trigger an AMC short squeeze in 2023.

When AMC’s share price skyrocketed to $72 per share, AMC’s short interest dropped from 21% to 14% due to hedge funds buying back their shares.

And with AMC’s increasing borrow fee rate, it only puts more pressure on hedge funds to begin this process.

Nasdaq Reports 0.18% APE Institutional Ownership

APE institutional ownership
Market News: Latest APE institutional ownership report.

Nasdaq’s latest report on APE is showing the security only has 0.18% in institutional ownership.

AMC’s Preferred Equity was recently listed on Yahoo Finance’s ‘Top Most Shorted Stocks List‘.

The stock has had an insane amount of demand in the market from retail investors, but overleveraged shorting has suppressed the stock’s price from rising.

APE has fallen below $1 despite above average daily trading volume.

But institutional ownership has also largely declined according to the latest Nasdaq report.

And with AMC Entertainment selling APE shares through Citigroup, holders of the equity keep getting hammered.

Here’s the latest on APE.

Join the newsletter for weekly market news and updates.

New and Sold Out APE Positions

APE institutional holdings - Franknez.com.
APE institutional holdings – Franknez.com.

According to Nasdaq, there are only 8 new institutional positions in APE with 298 total sold out positions.

This is equivalent to 327,046 institutional shares added versus 145.5 million shares sold.

Out of 13 institutions holding APE, 4 remained unchanged.

APE institutional ownership

This means retail investors have very little help from institutions in driving the share price up.

Nearly all institutions who received APE through AMC have sold it.

AMC Entertainment capitalized from APE in October when it was able to claim $106 million and pay down some debt.

Not even insiders are buying the equity.

But AMC shareholders are convinced that APE’s high short interest mixed with large buying pressure will trigger an APE short squeeze.

Does APE Need Institutional Buyers to Squeeze?

I’d love to hear your opinion on this.

The past has shown us that both retail and institutional investors moved AMC Entertainment stock to higher highs in 2021.

Retail investors were able to successfully instill confidence in institutions as AMC’s share price began to rise.

Or is APE’s major decline simply a factor from this year’s bear market?

Biotech Company Suing Citadel Over Market Manipulation

Citadel Market Manipulation
Market News: Biotech Company sues Citadel for market manipulation.

Biotech company Northwest Biotherapeutics is suing Citadel and other market makers for allegedly manipulating its stock price.

The company is accusing Citadel Securities LLC, Susquehanna, Virtu, and other Wall Street firms of driving its stock price down through the use of various illicit trading activities.

One being ‘spoofing‘ orders.

The lawsuit was filed on Thursday in Manhattan federal court. 

Northwest Biotherapeutics alleged the market makers had repeatedly engaged in “spoofing,“ where traders place orders with an intent to fool other investors about a stock’s demand and manipulate the price.

Northwest, whose shares trade over the counter, also sued Canaccord Genuity Inc., G1 Execution Services LLC, GTS Securities LLC, Instinet LLC, Lime Trading Corp. and Virtu Americas LLC.

Here’s the latest market news.

Citadel’s Market Manipulation History

Citadel market manipulation
Stock Market News: Citadel accused of market manipulation | Citadel lawsuit + more.

The lawsuit comes as no surprise to the retail community as Citadel has a long history of market manipulation.

From getting accounts suspended in China to settling charges of misconduct and abusing their power in the U.S. markets, Citadel has done it all.

Spoofing was outlawed in 2010 so the practice has since been illegal.

In March, the DOJ targeted hedge fund Muddy Waters for flooding the market with fake shares.

In August, a federal jury in Chicago convicted two former JPMorgan traders who had been charged with spoofing in the gold market.

Now Citadel and others are being accused of using spoofing tactics to drive down the price of Northwest Biotherapeutics.

Will these Wall Street giants receive the same consequences as JPMorgan’s former traders?

I’m curious to know what you think.

AMC’s Preferred Equity ‘APE’ Falls Below $1

Market News: APE falls below $1 as short sellers suppress the stock.

APE is now trading below $1.

Short sellers have been able to attack AMC’s Preferred Equity through the use of overleveraged shorting methods.

APE recently made #1 on Yahoo’s “Top Most Shorted Stock List“.

The equity closed at $0.98 per share and fell as low as $0.90 on Wednesday.

Majority of the market pumped during JPow’s announcement but both AMC and APE finished red on the day despite above average trading volume.

APE had an exceptional amount of buying power reaching 62.8 million, it’s average trading volume is 16.2 million.

The manipulation of APE in the market has shareholders looking at the CEO.

Citigroup’s Ties with APE and AMC Entertainment

Citigroup APE
Citigroup APE ties. AMC Entertainment news + more.

AMC Entertainment announced that it would hire Citigroup to help it sell 425 million APE shares.

This comes from the movie theatre chain’s strategy to capitalize from its shareholders to pay down debt.

Shareholders have argued in the past that the issuance of APE should have been voted for.

AMC Entertainment was able to successfully and legally claim a fraction of shareholder’s hard-earned capital in order to keep raise cash.

While there are shareholders who are willing to give their entire paycheck to the company, others weren’t too happy with the move.

Now it’s been disclosed that Citigroup has been shorting AMC Entertainment for the better part of over two years now.

Citigroup’s 13F-HR filing shows the company has been selling shares while trading put options in the derivatives market.

Meanwhile, the bank has also been downgrading AMC’s share price and promoting it in the media.

That’s right, the partner that is helping AMC sell APE shares has also been capitalizing from shorting the company.

Shareholders Look to Adam Aron for Answers

While there are shareholders that have total trust in AMC’s CEO Adam Aron, there are others who simply want answers.

Shareholders are invested in AMC Entertainment in order to capitalize from the company, but it currently seems to be the other way around.

AMC Entertainment just launched their online merchandise store, which is incredibly bullish for the company as it allows them to venture into other income streams.

This however does not prevent certain shareholders from wanting answers on APE’s dilution and massive suppression in share price.

Still, majority of shareholders seem to hold on to the CEO’s statement when he said to not confuse his silence with inaction.

But I’m curious to know what you think.

Virtu is Suing the SEC Over Records Request

Market News: Virtu sues SEC | Doug Cifu.

Virtu Financial Inc is suing the SEC, alleging on Tuesday its primary regulator had not responded to a public records request.

Virtu, a market maker with a large equities business, said it submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in June to determine if the SEC had met legal requirements to evaluate potential investor harm and market risks while considering new rules for the handling and execution of retail stock orders.

The SEC declined to comment.

The FOIA request sought, among other things, communications between SEC Chair Gary Gensler and various stakeholders involved in retail stock trading.

“What we’re doing is exercising our rights as citizens … to understand what this Chair is looking at and who he’s meeting with,” Virtu Chief Executive Doug Cifu told Reuters.

“We think it’s important that there be clarity and transparency — that’s what the SEC requires of us as a listed company, so we’re just taking that same standard and saying, be transparent in how you’re dealing with potentially seismic changes to equity market structure,” he added.

Cifu has said Virtu may sue the SEC over other potential rule changes Gensler outlined in June.

What Does the Market Maker Fear?

Virtu SEC Lawsuit Update.
Virtu SEC Lawsuit Update.

The industry has attacked the SEC as several plans to level the playing field for retail investors have been proposed, one being the ban of PFOF (payment for order flow).

Now it seems market makers such as Virtu want to know ahead of time what the SEC is up to in order to act now.

Virtu suing the SEC speaks volumes since majority of retail investors have doubted the SEC has true power to create any change in the market.

AMC stock news and highlights [2021 Archive]

FOX Business reported AMC to have a strong chance of a short squeeze.

Coming from a big news platform it certainly brings the stock sentiment up for most retail investors.

This is the type of news retail investors need to keep an eye out for.

AMC Short Squeeze News Fox Business
Strong chance of a short squeeze – Fox Business AMC

AMC is still currently the most shorted stock in the market.

President and CEO of AMC Entertainment Adam Aron, announced AMC will reopen all 13 AMC theaters in New York City as of March 5th, 2021.

As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open across the United States with many selling out.

Check out what Adam Aron had to say (via. Investor Relations AMC)

“Since reopening our first theatres with AMC Safe & Clean in August, AMC has welcomed back nearly 10 million moviegoers nationwide without a single reported case of COVID-19 transmission among moviegoers at our theatres. We look forward to welcoming back our New York City guests to the big seats, big sounds and big screens that are only possible at a movie theatre.”

Adam aron, President and CEO of AMC Entertainment

For those who thought AMC was a dead company, think again.

The company is now generating big revenue since it’s reopening.

Melvin Capital closing in June

Melvin Capital AMC Stock
Melvin Capital Hedge Fund – AMC – AMC Stocktwits

This is huge.

Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss it’s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

Today, the hedge fund is scheduled to close in June of 2022.

Here’s why this matters:

  • Not only are shorts losing money every day but huge hedge funds are bleeding
  • This is a huge win for retail investors
  • Unless shorts close their positions, hedge funds will continue to suffer
  • Interest rates can skyrocket for short sellers enabling them to close their positions
  • An AMC short squeeze might be closer than we think

Here’s what retail investors can do:

  1. Continue to hold your positions, it’s free
  2. Buy the dips to counter any short attacks
  3. Share articles on social platforms that can provide value to the community
  4. Keep a close eye on the stock to not miss the squeeze

I’m going to discuss a little more on the short borrow fee that continues to increase for these hedge funds shorting the stock.

This is going to be a massive component to a short squeeze.

Positive news for AMC Entertainment (Archive 2021)

Adam Aron gives positive news on AMC Entertainment – Archive 2021
  • AMC Entertainment has raised more than 2.2 billion dollars in cash
  • 90% of AMC theaters in the United States are now open with New York and Los Angeles finally reopening
  • Vaccinations and policies are making movie theaters safe
  • New movie titles are guaranteed to increase sales revenues
  • CEO and President Adam Aron expresses an optimistic future for AMC Entertainment
  • AMC Entertainment has implemented a Safe & Clean program under the advisement from Harvard University’s prestigious School of Public health as well as well as the No. 1 U.S. cleaning brand, The Clorox Company. This means movie goers can now return at ease knowing a proper sanitation program has been put in place.

Hedge fund affiliate partners such as MarketWatch, The Fool, and other finance website have been trying to redirect the public from investing in this stock.

That’s primarily because hedge funds are losing millions by the day.

A short squeeze could even put them out of business.

This is why it’s important for me to spread the positive news surrounding AMC.

I don’t believe in the manipulation of the media and I will continue to update these articles as more great news unfolds.

Is AMC Shorted?

AMC’s current short interest is around 21% (last updated 8/30)

AMC’s short shares available will be updated here so be sure to bookmark this page.

AMC Short Shares Available to borrow

While shorts might have the capability to short AMC stock, this is only temporary.

They will run out of borrowed shares and eventually have to cover.

There are finally investigations going around regarding naked shorting.

BREAKING: Anchorage Capital closes after betting against AMC stock

What does this mean for the AMC shareholder?

Expect to see gains after shorts have run out of borrowed shares to use.

Hedge funds and short sellers alike have dug a deeper hole for themselves.

What this means for the AMC shareholder is a squeeze bigger than anything the market has ever seen before.

I am personally doubling down.

Not only is bankruptcy off the table (via. Los Angeles Times), but AMC movie theaters are now about to begin reopening in larger parts of the United States.

Which of course now introduces revenue.

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

It’s really hard to tell.

Even experts can’t identify an exact date and time.

However, the possibility of an AMC short squeeze is certainly possible given that it is still the most shorted stock in the market and the stocks volume continues to rise.

We also now have more data then ever before that indicate a massive short squeeze is almost certain to happen.

Especially now that the SEC has announced some crackdown on shorting.

With Melvin Capital and other hedge funds losing money, it’s only a matter of time before the short borrow fee continues to skyrocket and shorts have to close their positions.

It’s tendie time!

Analyst AMC predictions

With that being said, Trey’s Trades predicts a short squeeze is highly likely. Trey has been a leader in the AMC community.

More data points towards the stock reaching $1000+ per share.

See what stock analyst Trey has to say.

The real questions is, how can retail investors make this AMC short squeeze happen?

We know that short-sellers eventually have to cover their positions. This means that they will eventually have to buy AMC stock at the current share price.

  1. If retail investors continue to drive the share price up by buying the dip and holding their positions, short-sellers will have no other option than to buy from the retail investor at a higher share price.

2. Retail investors will also need to buy the climbs in order to show a demand for the stock. This doesn’t have to be huge buys, rather incremental to validate the current share price.

This play essentially creates a supply and demand scenario between retail investors and short-sellers. The results? A short squeeze.

Hedge funds are doing everything they can to prevent a short squeeze

How are they doing this?

  • By promoting false information online (we’re certain you’ve seen it)
  • Through strategies such as short-ladder attacks in the market
  • And, by restricting certain brokerage accounts from allowing its retail investors to purchase or buy shorted stocks (Robing hood)

This is what retail investors can do to fight corruption:

  • Share content that presents facts (blog posts, analysis videos, etc.)
  • Continue to educate yourself and make investment decisions based on your personal analysis
  • Follow your instincts

What will an AMC short squeeze look like?

We’ll begin to see a trend similar to that of GME (Gamestop). AMC will enter a bullish territory before hitting an ‘abnormal’ peak in which AMC would have ‘squoze’.

What will an AMC short squeeze look like?

It seems we’ve already hit the bottom.

AMC continues to be heavily shorted through dark pools and other market manipulation tactics.

This price level can be seen as a buying opportunity for retail investors looking to squeeze shorts out of their positions.

We’re now sitting at $7.43 per share.

Join our topic discussions on the channel.

An AMC short squeeze will certainly make headlines.

Expect to see various gains prior to any sort of major peak as well as volatility.

Gamma squeeze vs Short squeeze

Don’t confuse gains and momentum with a short squeeze.

Here’s the difference between a gamma squeeze and a short squeeze:

A gamma squeeze are momentum gains. These usually occur from call options closing in the pocket resulting in heavy buys or purchases in the market.

A short squeeze is vigorous and can spike with no warning.

This is where you see 100% gains in a matter of seconds and minutes.

A short squeeze can even reach 1000% and 10,000% gains.

AMC Short Squeeze Stock Prediction

AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Stocktwits

New retail investors are wondering whether $1k, $10k, or even $100k per share is even possible.

Gabe from ReviewDork does some math that’s going to leave you with an open mind.

AMC stock price predictions range from $1,000 to $100k+.

But I’m curious to know your thoughts on this.

Leave a comment at the end of the blog post.

Will AMC reach peaks like GameStop?

AMC has been fortunate enough to receive more publicity and hype than GME did, at least recently.

The volume will speak for itself, and retail investors will just have to wait to find out.

We’ve seen that abnormal gains are naturally part of a short squeeze.

Volkswagen rose up to nearly $1,000 when it squeezed back in 2008 due to a similar strategy produced by car manufacturer Porsche.

Analysts are predicting AMC can even go above the $1K mark if retail investors and institutions alike continue to buy and hold their positions.

Wouldn’t this be something. If you’re holding 1,000 shares and AMC spikes to $1K per share, you my friend have made 1 million dollars!

I strongly suggest using a reputable broker such as Vanguard or Fidelity oppose to phone apps like Robinhood.

Simply because the broker colluded with market maker Citadel to halt the buying of ‘meme stocks’.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

Absolutely not, at least not yet.

AMC Entertainment is still heavily shorted.

You will have to decide whether its current share price is worth it if trades at $100, $500, or even $1,000+.

AMC Entertainment stock has not even started squeezing yet.

Redditors have touched base on this topic and are determined anything below $100 is a buy.

Where was AMC trading at before the pandemic?

AMC was actually trading between $30-$35 back in the booming party economy of 16′!

AMC stock started to decline as their debt increased and hedge funds began to heavily short it.

What if a short squeeze doesn’t happen?

If an AMC short squeeze doesn’t occur, AMC stock price will still go up allowing shareholders to make at least some sort of profit.

With AMC theaters now open, it’s inevitable that the company will begin to see bigger sales revenue every time a new title is released.

I update this post when new titles make the headlines regarding earnings.

Keep in mind that AMC’s share price during the booming party economy of 16′ was roughly around $30 per share.

If a short squeeze doesn’t happen, fundamentals will continue to bring the stock up as more investors are buying the stock.

However, a short squeeze not happening is very unlikely as AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market and most held stock, beating both Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA), via. NASDAQ.

Majority of the float is also held by retail investors and short sellers are going to be forced to close their positions very soon, more on that coming up.

As Mark Cuban bluntly put it, keep holding.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

why hasn't AMC squeezed yet
AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Squeeze – AMC Stocktwits

AMC hasn’t squeezed yet primarily to two main reasons.

  1. The stock requires volume to drive the stock price action up
  2. Shorts need to close their positions

Volume really just comes to more and more retail investors as well as institutions getting in on AMC stock.

Regarding shorts covering, retail investors need to squeeze them out of their positions by holding their positions and helping increase AMC’s short borrow fee.

You can keep tabs on AMC’s short borrow fee as it changes every day via. Ortex, or Fintel.

AMC short borrow fee

As of 10/21 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 18.20%.

Aside from this, Wanda Group had caused a little bit of disruption for retail investors by profiting on the first sight of gains.

This turmoil was only short-term but is a reason why we’ve seen some selloff in the market a few weeks ago.

However, Adam Aron has brought awareness in an interview with Trey’s Trades that this selloff from Wanda is simply policy from China.

Retail investors should not be concerned.

Is AMC Ever Going To Squeeze?

All the numbers point towards the right direction for a massive short squeeze.

Shorts and hedge funds continue to lose money every day.

The interest is growing at an alarming rate and AMC’s current utilization is at 100%.

It’s possible the lives of these retail investors are about to completely change.
