Why is AMC stock going up

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest posts on personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.

Lets get started.

Volatility is normal in the stock market

We’ve seen a lot of volatility in the market recently. If you’re a new investor chances are you might have been scared off to sell and then noticed the stock slightly go up again in the green tier.

Don’t feel bad, volatility in the stock market is normal. This doesn’t just apply to AMC stock. But if you haven’t sold, kudos to you. #diamondhands.

So, what’s causing the stock to go back up? Well, there are numerous reasons why AMC is back in the green tier. Keep reading to find out whether this stock might be a good pick for you.

Reasons why AMC stock is going up

reasons why amc stock is going up
  1. Large institutions such as Wells Fargo, Vanguard, BMO Harris, Charles Schwab, Fidelity, & BlackRock are buying the stock right now (via. CNN Business)
  2. AMC CEO Adam Aron, announced bankruptcy is officially “off the table” and have raised $2.2 billion in cash this new year.
  3. Because AMC is currently the most shorted stock (via. MarketWatch), the stock price has gone up and will continue to go up as long as retail investors keep buying the stock. *Unfortunately MarketWatch has removed AMC from their list. Retail investors suspect foul play from this hedge fund partner.
  4. AMC is currently the most held stock surpassing Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA) – via Nasdaq.
  5. Godzilla vs. Kong secures $9.6 million in ticket sales on it’s opening night! Keep reading below for the numbers on NEW titles increasing AMC Entertainment’s revenue.
  6. SEC is starting to crackdown on short sellers.

AMC Entertainment is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy

There’s actually a lot of positive things going on for AMC Entertainment despite what The Fool, InvestorPlace and other shill news might try to convince you of.

The sentiment behind AMC stock keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger by the day. This is primarily because people are smarter than these hedge funds think. Ultimately, the data speaks for itself.

Now, Adam Aron who is the President and CEO of AMC Entertainment has done an outstanding job with the media. In this video we can hear his optimism for the movie theater chain before AMC theaters began to reopen.

Adam Aron clip as theaters were beginning to reopen

As of April 2021 all AMC movie theaters are now open with many even selling out.

If you’re familiar with Trey’s Trades you’ve more than likely seen his interview with Adam. I wrote a piece on this to highlight key moments of the interview.

You can check it out here.

AMC Q1 2021 Earnings

AMC just announced their Q1 earnings for 2021. Things are looking particularly bullish and optimistic to say the very least.

For the retail investor this means the upper hand is yours. AMC Entertainment has raised over $2 billion dollars to hold them off until the year 2022. And we still have to go through Q2, Q3, and Q4!

If you missed the conference you can check it out from Matt Kohrs imbedded here for your viewing pleasure.

AMC Q2 Earnings Call

I published an entire article on Q2 earnings call so be sure to read it here! AMC doubled their earnings and have a ton of exciting new things coming to movie theaters.

Key highlights include:

  • AMC accepting Bitcoin by the end of the year
  • Open to partnering up with GameStop!
  • Looking into licensing rights to show concerts and sports events on the big screen

AMC Entertainment has a great vision when it comes to innovation. I’m excited to see our movie theaters evolve to provide an even greater theatrical experience.

Fundamentals are also causing AMC stock to go up

AMC Entertainment as a company has a lot of partners and friends they’ve gained throughout the 100 years they’ve been in business.

They’ve been able to raise money to pay off debt and focus on ways to welcome people back to the movie theaters safely.

Revenue is a very positive factor playing into the fundamentals of AMC’s stock price action. AMC Entertainment is set to release a ton of awesome titles this year which has people excited for that movie theater experience.

AMC’s CEO is one great leader

With this being said, Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment is not backing down. Adam has talked about his experience saving Norwegian Cruise Line and how he intends to to keep AMC alive for as long as he lives to run the company.

If you haven’t seen his interview with Trey’s Trades you can watch the video embedded here for a more in depth perspective of what AMC Entertainment means to him.

Why are large institutions buying AMC stock?

Vanguard AMC

Speculation would point out AMC is possibly a good investment, contrary to what Yahoo Finance, The Fool, and other resources are leading the public to believe, right?

It is important to note that these institutions are purchasing millions in AMC stock. Just a side note here: if AMC isn’t a good investment like some sources are pumping out, then why are large institutions buying while the stock is low in price? Hmm..

My educated guess? Large institutions aren’t going to be wanting to miss out on upcoming gains from a short squeeze.

Aside from a short squeeze however, AMC Entertainment seems to be a good buy even as a long-term stock. Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC has shared his optimistic views towards the direction of his company.

AMC is a good buy with or without a short squeeze.

What is a short squeeze?

A short squeeze occurs when a stock jumps sharply higher, forcing short sellers to buy higher, causing them to lose money. This in turn makes the retail investor (you and I) a LOT of money.

This notion of an upcoming short squeeze is drawing in a lot of attention. This is why we’re seeing AMC stock go up as well. Its purchase share volume is going up.

And where there’s attention, there’s money to be made.

Volume is important for an AMC short squeeze

As more and more retail investors get in on AMC and continue to buy and hold, we’re going to keep experiencing the stock price rise.

Because volume is such an important factor, retail investors and institutions will need to not only buy the dips but the gains as well.

By buying the gains in increments, the market processes this as a demand in the stock; further driving up the share price.

The main reason why AMC stock will keep going up

A short squeeze needs volume

AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market.

Short-sellers such as Melvin Capital bet on the businesses like AMC to lose. These are the folk that don’t care about workers losing their jobs, or about the companies success. This hits home to most retail investors which means convictions towards AMC stock is strong.

The way these short-sellers make money is quite simple. They short the stock. However, they’re not making any money right now. In face, they’re upside down by billions of dollars.

Shorting a stock is the process by which sellers essentially bet on the stock price to drop. They borrow stocks at a higher cost and sell the stock low, profiting the difference and driving the share price to the ground.

Fortunately, retail investors like the stock and are against shorting it. This is why AMC continues to go up. Retail investors have all the time in the world to see this short squeeze through. Shorts however, are paying the price every day.

And if you’re wondering, yes this is exactly what occurred with GameStop. Except AMC might just be the MOASS (mother of all short squeezes).

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital

This is huge for retail investors. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock for quite some time now.

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

The importance of this is very significant. AMC is not a dead cat. Hedge funds continue to short the stock in hopes that they can reverse what’s been done. Unfortunately for them it’s only a matter of time before shorts are squeezed out of their positions due to the increase in short borrow fee and utilization of the stock.

AMC Entertainment has been heavily short laddered in the recent weeks. However, the stock seems to continuously correct itself which is why we’re seeing AMC go up again.

For some reason AMC does not like single digit numbers. This stock is going to continue to test high levels of support as fundamentals push the stock in an upwards trend. Fundamentals such as earnings will play a major role in this organic push up.

r/wallstreetbets like AMC stock

The people, along with r/wallstreetbets do not want the movie theaters closed. They are purchasing AMC at the dip and holding. This is where the terms diamond hands comes from.

According to Robinhood, AMC is the most held stock beating both Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA)! Source: via Nasdaq.

This means AMC shareholders will eventually have leverage over the stock from short-sellers as the price goes up.

As long as retail investors continue to hold, we’ll begin to see a supply and demand situation.

Short-sellers will eventually have to buy from retail investors to cover their spots, inevitably driving AMC share price higher.

Positive AMC Theater news!

AMC movie theaters across the entire country are selling out! New releases are serving the movie theater industry very well.

Godzilla vs. Kong secures $9.6 million in ticket sales

AMC theater - Godzilla vs Kong

Warner Bros. said Thursday that “Godzilla vs. Kong” secured $9.6 million in ticket sales on its opening night. This has been a record debut for the pandemic. As of April 26th it has done over $400 million global!

Leave me a comment below if you watched the film. I personally loved everything about it.

Mortal Kombat & Demon Slayer outperform earnings

Mortal Kombat brought in 23.3 million its opening weekend. Critics expected Mortal Kombat to reach no more than 15 million. A huge victory for the cinema industry! Not only that but Demon Slayer drew in another whopping 19.5 million its opening weekend.

AMC theater Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat reps the biggest R-rated opening to-date during the pandemic. The beautiful thing is that we have other amazing titles coming to the movies that can continue to scale beyond these numbers.

The top 10 locations for Mortal Kombat were:

1. AMC Burbank Los Angeles, 2. Santikos Palladium San Antonio, 3. Cinemark Tinseltown El Paso, 4. Santikos Casa Blanca San Antonio, 5. AMC Orange Los Angeles, 6. Cinemark Pharr Town Center (Texas), 7. AMC Empire New York, 8. Cinemark Century 16 Corpus Christi, 9. AMC Gulf Pointe Houston, and 10. AMC Southlake Pavilion Atlanta.

Source, via. Deadline.

I have not watched Demon Slayer yet but Mortal Kombat was a fun film to watch. I grew up on the video games (shoutout to GameStop) and the older films so seeing this today made my year. If you have not gone out to your local AMC theater I recommend you do.

A Quiet Place Part II: $57 Million Pandemic Record

A Quiet Place Part 2 earnings
Movie theater earnings: A Quiet Place Part 2

A Quiet Place Part 2 debuted in theaters on Friday May 28 and broke pandemic records in the cinema industry.

Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part 2 topped Godzilla vs. Kong and Mortal Kombat combined on their opening night reaching $57 million over the Memorial Day Weekend. A huge congrats to the industry and AMC Entertainment.

As more Americans continue to get vaccinated, health concerns ease. AMC Entertainment is seeing a critical mass effect as the public feels safer. I’m personally happy for the century old company and its shareholders invested in the stock.

The Conjuring Earns $11.5 Million Opening Weekend in the U.S.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It earned $11.5 million its opening weekend and grossing 57.1 million worldwide. Congrats to James Wan and the movie theater industry. The Conjuring films are currently the top grossing horror franchise of all time with $1.9 billion at the global box office.

Wall Street analyst upgrades AMC Theatres

Wall street analyst says, ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ “Destroys lingering concerns around theatrical window importance and demonstrates a solid path to resurgence”, via. Hollywood Reporter.

Eric Wold goes on to say, “Consumers want to leave the house and return to the theater.”

There seems to be a massiveness of positivity going around for the theater industry, especially AMC being the leader. As AMC continues to increase their sales revenue with hit titles, you can expect AMC’s stock price to continue surging. Massive victory for the AMC theaters!

Upcoming movie news and revenue will be updated here so be sure to follow me on Twitter to know when the post has been updated.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

In short, no. With the price of AMC stock being affordable to majority of the public, it’s a steal right now. Especially considering it has set a new floor in the low $30 range and has touched $50 per share twice now. Once in June and again in September.

The ‘ape’ community plans on taking this stock above $100 fundamentally through buying pressure before squeezing shorts from their positions.

I strongly believe AMC will do great post pandemic, and apparently so do other institutions (with or without a short squeeze).

Are you a new retail investor? Bookmark these investing tips from Frank Nez

It looks as if AMC has now entered bullish territory. And yet again sources such as The Fool and other hedge fund partners are trying to steer the public from investing in this specific stock. Shame on you shills. Well, just how high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

AMC stock price closed at $44.20 on September 17th. The share volume rose and remains healthy as AMC prepares to take off. We have broken the $30 and $40 levels of consolidation. How soon will AMC rip?

AMC Entertainment has had an amazing runup this year. The crazy thing is shorts haven’t even begun to close their positions. Ladies and gentlemen, the short squeeze hasn’t even started.

Most of the market has been on sale and AMC has been no exception to that until now. AMC wants to keep climbing. The stock continues to consolidate as short sellers find loopholes to short the stock.

As some of you know, I update this article frequently. I update it with the intraday price action as well as any information pertaining to the stocks performance. A lot of the information on here will be left untouched as it is a means to archive a lot of the information from throughout the year.

What do we know about AMC stock price?

AMC’s stock price continues to be volatile although we’ve seen the stock is scared of single digit share price numbers.

No matter how many times this stock is attacked by short sellers, it keeps correcting itself upwards.

AMC stock price bull market

Key highlights

  1. We’re seeing AMC stock price enter bullish territory due to an increase of retail investors buying the stock.
  2. ‘W’ shape formations in the performance of the stock also indicate bullish territory.
  3. Retail investors and large institutions alike, like the stock. Buyers include Vanguard, Charles Schwab, Wells Fargo, and BlackRock.
  4. What causes AMC stock price to rise during ‘power hour’ is how many more shares are being purchased before trading hours close. As retail investors continue to buy the dip and hold, we’re going to continue to see this trend of perpetual gains.
  5. The stock price is still relatively low enough for majority of people to buy, but hurry before it’s too late.
  6. The short borrow fee continues to increase, this means shorts will have to close their positions soon

Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Entertainment Interview

Adam Aron AMC interview
Franknez.com
Adam Aron, CEO & President of AMC Entertainment

Adam Aron has done an outstanding job with the media in the past months and continues to show a positive and bullish sentiment towards AMC.

He is now praised among the retail investors community holding AMC. And for good reason too.

See what CEO and President of AMC entertainment has to say to CNBC news about AMC Entertainment reopening and the Reddit movement.

As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open 4/14
  • 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

In a more recent interview we get an exclusive behind the scenes moment with Trey’s Trades and Adam Aron.

If you haven’t watched the video you’re not gonna want to miss out.

In this personal interview from the CEOs home, Adam Aron talks about the 500 million share dilution, which by the way as of today has been taken off the table, as well as his experience and perspective behind the the Reddit phenomenon.

I wrote a small piece on Adam Aron being rightfully named the king ape here.

AMC’s Short Borrow Fee

AMC short borrow fee interest

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 9/17 is: 0.90% via. Stonk-O-Tracker.

The longer shorts-sellers hold their positions means the higher the borrow fee may increase. This is great news for retail investors.

Shorts eventually have to cover their positions and when they do, AMC’s stock price action will continue to rise, inevitably creating a short squeeze.

Why AMC’s short borrow fee matters

While it costs the retail investor nothing to hold their position in AMC, it costs shorts interest.

Shorts are more willing to hold their positions if the short borrow fee is low so they’re losing money every day they hold.

Remember, shorts still think they can bankrupt a company that is no longer going bankrupt.. I know right?

As hedge funds like Melvin Capital lose money, the short borrow fee will go up to make up for some loses. As the interest goes up, shorts will naturally cover. If they don’t, they will bleed bad. With the short borrow fee being so high at the moment, it has retail investors speculating a short squeeze will start soon.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital AMC stock
Hedge Fund Melvin Capital – AMC Entertainment

Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GameStop. Well it turns out holding has paid off one way. The company was down almost half percent their first quarter of 2021!

These are people who want to put your favorite businesses out of business. Ladies and gentlemen, the good guys always win.

If retail investors keep holding, institutions are going to raise the short borrow fee. Unless hedge funds don’t start closing their short positions, they will cease to exist. Or at least cease to run operations until they open a new firm from scratch. But who will trust them? Their clients are losing money.

Hedge funds are a sinking ship

Hedge funds are losing money shorting AMC stock

Cramer said, anyone shorting AMC and GameStop are going to lose. And he’s right. Retail investors are holding until shorts are squeezed out of their positions.

Shorts can either:

  1. Take the loses and close their positions right now where the stock price is around $44.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $44, resulting in even bigger losses.

Ladies and gentlemen, shorts could have closed at $5. With that being said, short sellers have lost more than a billion dollars this second quarter according to Ortex data.

Things are not looking so good for them. And it’s about to get a whole lot worse as AMC stock continues to surge.

How will this affect AMC stock price?

I can imagine shorts and hedge funds alike must be furious. The little guy causing a disruption, what!?!

My personal take is retail investors are going to continue to see foul play. You’re going to experience this from bogus headlines. They’ll usually try to steer the public from buying AMC stock to keep the volume and hype down.

Not sure if hedge funds know this yet but you do know documentaries of what’s taking place are in the works right?

Independent filmmakers such as the Mulligan Brothers will be covering this story from the retail investors perspective and rumor has it Netflix will be writing as well.

Expect AMC stock price to rise and continue to be shorted. We will see volatility with shorts attacking the price action. They do this by trading synthetic shares at low bids.

Read: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market.

AMC Gamma squeeze before short squeeze

AMC Entertainment is currently the most shorted stock in the market (via. MarketWatch).

AMC Gamma Squeeze Before Short Squeeze
AMC Most Shorted Stock

Unfortunately, MarketWatch has completely eliminated AMC from their list. Retail investors are suspecting foul play from the hedge fund affiliates.

Because AMC is an extremely high shorted stock, analysts continue to demonstrate their conviction towards an AMC short squeeze.

The key here is for retail investors to hold their positions as they see some momentum beginning to build. #diamondhands

Key: If investors want to see AMC squeeze, they’ll have to refrain from selling at the sight of early profits.

AMC stock predictions (analyst)

AMC prediction from Fidelity TRADER PRO

Trey’s Trades walks us through the positive moves AMC has been making from an analysts perspective. Trey presents his audience with transparent information and has been a key player in the analytics world for ticker symbol AMC.

Although this video is an earlier video, Trey’s videos are packed with relevant information that still apply to where the stock is today.

r/wallstreet bets and Discord

Members over at r/wallstreetbets and Discord anticipate AMC stock price can skyrocket as high as $1,000-$10,000 mainly due to the stock’s popularity and trends in analytics. Yup, that’s crypto numbers.

The number of phantom shares hedge funds have to cover is astronomical which is why the community is calling this the mother of all short squeezes (MOASS).

AMC stock price wallstreetbets

By holding shares in AMC, retail investors are setting up a supply and demand scenario where short-sellers will eventually need to buy from them.

This in turn can drive the stock up as high as the retail investor chooses, theoretically speaking.

Large institutions such as Vanguard, Wells Fargo, BMO Harris, BlackRock, Fidelity and many more are buying AMC stock while it’s still low (via. CNN Business).

Take that for what it is.

Whether that number comes to fruition or not, retail investors will have to continue to hold and to add to their positions in order to skyrocket AMC’s share price.

We’re seeing more and more retail investors join the fight against short-sellers. Short-sellers are the investors betting on AMC Entertainment to lose.

Read: When do shorts have to cover their position? (AMC)

Can AMC reach $100K or $500K per share?

There’s been a lot of speculation that due to the possible number of outstanding synthetics could be in the billions, AMC may potentially squeeze past 6-figures.

Personally, I’m open to this concept. Shouldn’t we all be? I just recently found ReviewDork on YouTube. Gabe talks about this possibility and walks us through some math. Check him out.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

If you’re looking to take on a position in AMC you might want to get on the train before it takes off for good. If you’re looking to get in for the short squeeze play, AMC stock is currently on bargain. This stock is still heavily shorted!

Retail investors are teaming up together to see their visions come to fruition. And they’re not waiting on anyone.

What we do know is that the current share price is still affordable for most people.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

AMC stock consolidation

AMC hasn’t squeezed for two primary reasons.

  1. The volume isn’t all there yet. The volume needs to be quite high. Trey’s Trades referenced 500+ million being an outstanding number.
  2. Shorts are holding – they need to close their positions if retail investors are to squeeze them.

It’s not illegal for shorts to hold long on their positions; however, they lose money every day they hold.

Fortunately for retail investors it’s free to hold.

Read: When do shorts have to cover their positions ? (AMC)

What will AMC’s stock price be when it squeezes?

AMC

AMC’s stock price can really be anywhere. It really depends on when shorts close their positions.

Short could have covered when they drove the price back down to $8. It would have been wise considering the stock continues to correct itself in an upward trend and has now set itself up for the perfect squeeze.

If shorts continue to play the long game, AMC’s stock price could potentially be higher when it squeezes. In this case, shorts would have lost a lot more money due to accumulating and rising short borrow fees.

Can AMC squeeze after hours?

A question some people might have is whether or not AMC could potentially squeeze after hours.

AMC can certainly squeeze after hours when the market closes. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if it did this. AMC’s stock price would continue to surge as retail investors watch immobile.

For one, shorts could decide to cover before the market closes in attempts to throw one final blow to retail investors. This would give the price action to potentially come back down after hours.

Should you worry?

I wouldn’t worry if this was the case. Although squeezes can last anywhere between minutes to hours, they can certainly last days too.

Volkswagen’s squeeze back in 2008 lasted approximately four days. GameStop’s lasted even longer.

Here’s how you can prepare for a short squeeze

A squeeze can technically happen at any time. The short interest doesn’t necessarily have to be high. Shorts could choose to close their positions with little loss opposed to massive losses.

  1. If you’re in a position to keep an open tab on your browser that is updated AMC’s stock price in real-time then I would suggest doing so.
  2. Own an Apple watch? Keep the stock in your background. This is a very convenient way to keeping tabs on the stocks performance.
  3. Join discords where you can be notified when something massive is going on.

When a squeeze happens you’ll know. Just don’t get a short squeeze confused with gamma squeezes.

Gamma squeezes are usually small spikes resulting from extremely bullish actions coming together at once. Otherwise known as relatively healthy gains of built momentum.

A short squeeze will be something more sudden and disruptive. You’ll know when this goes to the moon. AMC’s stock price will break through the charts and leave earths atmosphere.

What should I do when AMC squeezes?

AMC stock price short squeeze

This is completely up to you! Congrats for holding and seeing this through.

You can choose to sell your entire position and collect your profits or you can continue to hold and find out whether the squeeze continues to go up.

Unfortunately, we can’t time the spike. For all we know, the initial squeeze might not be the potential price action. This makes it difficult to calculate the best time to sell.

You could sell a portion of position and wait to see how AMC’s stock price moves.

We created a thread for you to share how you will use the money when AMC squeezes as a means to spread positivity and share with the community. You can check it out here.

What is a circuit breaker halt?

A circuit breaker is usually a rule in the market that essentially pauses or halts trading for 5-15 minutes.

A common circuit breaker type is the Volatility Pause. This helps smooth volatility in the market and prevent flash crashes. It forces traders to take a 5 minute timeout, research the stock, news, etc. Often times if a stock is spiking up and is halted, it will reopen higher.

Inversely, a stock selling off will often open lower.

Why this is worth mentioning

This is worth mentioning because it’s important for our readers and the ape community to be aware of possible halts as AMC’s stock price becomes more volatile. If you happen to experience a circuit breaker halt do not panic. It’s a policy to make sure trading goes as smooth as possible.

Important Advisory

It is important to note that I am not a licensed financial advisor. Like many traders and self taught investors, all speculation is based on educated estimations based on highly reliable analysis, patterns, and documented news charts.

Note: Before roaring kitty blew up as the analyst for GME, only a handful of people followed him through and reaped the rewards.

We’re seeing another analyst obtain a similar following with AMC. Take that for what it is.

Where can I invest in AMC? What’s a good platform?

AMC stock price: quick overview

AMC sat around $5 for quite some time before moving back up to the $14 range. We’re currently seeing AMC trade at $44.20. AMC’s stock price has been trending upwards with consolidation and has been less volatile. This is very good price movement. AMC stock has never had a healthier setup.

Retail investors are very excited about the data that’s been collected for months now. Will we see an AMC short squeeze while we continue to ride this bull? And if so, how soon?

Key Highlights

  • AMC closed at $44.20 on September 17th. The stock has surged since early this year due to volume despite short sellers attacking it. AMC Entertainment is set up for a short squeeze.

  • AMC entertainment continues to be the most heavily shorted stock in the market.
  • AMC’s short borrow fee continues to increase.

Some of you reading this article might have been holding since February now. Kuddos to you for holding the line. If you’re a new retail investor getting in on AMC be sure to thank the seasoned apes when you get a chance.

Below is a series of documented facts and positive news that all influence AMC’s potential towards a short squeeze. One thing is certain, it’s inevitable.

AMC stock news and highlights

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.

Unfortunately, MarketWatch has completely obliterated AMC from their list. Being a hedge fund affiliate, retail investors suspect foul play.

President and CEO of AMC Entertainment Adam Aron, announced AMC will reopen all 13 AMC theaters in New York City as of March 5th. 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 suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital AMC Stock
Melvin Capital Hedge Fund – AMC

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.

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

Adam Aron gives positive news on AMC Entertainment
  • 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.

There will not be a 500 million AMC share dilution!

In recent news, Adam Aron has announced that AMC Entertainment no longer plans on proceeding with the plans of adding 500 million more AMC shares to the arsenal in a tweet on Tuesday, April 27th.

You can read AMC Entertainment’s official announcement on their press release page here.

Is AMC Shorted?

AMC’s short interest is close to 20%. As of 9/17, we’re seeing 4,200,000 short shares have been made available to borrow, via Stonk-O-Tracker. AMC continues to be heavily shorted despite what mainstream media claims.

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

Was Adam Aron’s approval request of a 500 and 25 million share dilution to his shareholders a strategy to trick shorts into borrowing more shares? I personally think so and it’s absolutely genius. Shorts continue to borrow shares.

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.

Yeah.. I sense a grand mother of all short squeezes. #GMOASS

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.

AMC Q1 earnings for 2021

AMC announced their Q1 earnings for 2021 on Thursday, May 6th. Things are looking particularly bullish and optimistic to say the very least.

For the retail investor this means the upper hand is yours. AMC Entertainment has raised over $2 billion dollars to hold them off until the year 2022. And we still have to go through Q2, Q3, and Q4!

Unfortunately for hedge funds shorting the stock, it’s over. If you missed the conference call you can view it here for your viewing pleasure.

AMC Q1 2021 highlights

  • The AMC community is recognized
  • Q1 earnings are higher than last years 4th quarter
  • Expectations for Q2 – Q4 are much higher
  • Food and beverage sales are up by 45%
  • Sales revenue will continue to rise as new titles are being released

AMC Q2 earnings for 2021

Quarter 2 earnings for AMC were absolutely amazing! I published an entire article on this information you can read all about here.

AMC Q2 2021 highlights

  • Record breaking $2 billion in liquidity
  • Increased revenue / tickets & concession
  • AMC to accept Bitcoin by the end of the year
  • GameStop partnership
  • Enhancing the cinema experience with sports and music performance

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 now certainly guaranteed. Trey has been a leader in the AMC community and deserves a spot on this page.

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

See what stock analyst Trey has to say.

AMC short squeeze

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

We know that short-sellers eventually have to cover their spots. 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.

NOTE: Retail investors do have to sell a bit as the price goes up in order to keep that momentum. Look at it as giving rats crumbs. Not only will they want more but they’ll need more.

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)
AMC Gorilla

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
  • Protect the community and one another
  • Follow your instincts

What will a 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?

According to Trey’s Trades we’ve already hit the bottom. AMC continues to be heavily shorted through dark pools. This price level can be seen as a buying opportunity for retail investors looking to squeeze shorts out of their positions. We’ve seen resistant levels around $14-$16 recently which is a great push from $5. We’re now sitting at 44.20 per share.

Recent performance and news is leaving retail investors with positive speculations. An AMC short squeeze will certainly make headlines. Expect to see various gains prior to any sort of major peak as well as volatility.

Retail investors will have to hold their positions through upcoming gains if they want to see AMC short squeeze.

But most importantly, they’ll have to refrain from selling at the first sight of gains if they are to see bigger and more massive gains.

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

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+.

Will AMC reach peaks like GME?

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!

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 advise anything below $100 is a buy. I’ve been personally buying the stock when it dips. This allows me to pick up more shares at a discount.

If you’re a beginner, I recommend buying 5-10 shares of AMC stock. This amount will give you a feel of the market. Not only is it affordable, but if the market is red you won’t see much loss on paper.

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.

Short sellers could have covered back in August when AMC’s stock price was trading at $30 levels. However, it doesn’t AMC is going back down to these levels. We broke past $50 and are trending upwards again, though we are seeing heavy shorting in the market.

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?

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

  1. We need more 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 9/17 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 0.90%.

Read: When do shorts have to cover their position? (AMC)

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 recently 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 around 90%.

The lives of these retail investors are about to completely change. Say goodbye to your old world.

How To Invest In Bitcoin Cryptocurrency For Beginners

Invest Bitcoin
How to invest in Bitcoin

Bitcoin has revolutionized the way we think about money and how we invest it. Kevin O’ Leary himself thinks Bitcoin will beat the S&P500, which earns on average 7-10% annually by an additional 4%.

I frequently get asked what I think about Bitcoin. In all honesty this could be a great place to park some of your money for the remaining of the decade. And I’ll explain why later but first lets go over how to invest in Bitcoin.

franknez.com bitcoin

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!

Is Bitcoin the future?

Let’s face it, anything digital is the future. The way I look at Bitcoin is that it is gold in digital form. Why? Because there’s a limited amount of it and there’s a huge demand for it.

I don’t necessarily view Bitcoin as a means of currency to be used for transacting in the markets. Bitcoin to me is a means of multiplying your money like any other investment.

The difference with Bitcoin however is that nothing has quite grown like it. This is what makes this investment, or trade so attractive.

Will Bitcoin go back up?

BTC is showing major signs of a recovery. Investors should not worry about the selloffs that recently took place.

Hedge funds and other institutions shorting companies at the moment are in hot waters and are in desperate need of capital. View this market dip as an opportunity to buy at a discount.

The crypto market is undergoing a correction and will reach new levels growth with each passing day. BTC is recovering quite well.

Bitcoin recently dropped from $60K per bitcoin to $29K. Bitcoin is now trading closer to $50K.

Where can I buy Bitcoin?

Alright community, this is why you’re here. Before you begin your very first investment in BTC you’ll need to open a brokerage account with a cryptocurrency investment platform.

I personally use Kraken.

Buy Bitcoin and Crypto with Kraken
How to invest in Bitcoin

Kraken allows me to buy Bitcoin at ease straight from my laptop or from my phone. When you purchase Bitcoin with Kraken, you’ll be able to see the stats and charts wherever you go.

In fact, Kraken just made it easier to purchase BTC and other crypto. Before, you would have to transfer money through an ACH transfer which would take days. Now, you can easily connect your bank account and make purchases instantly.

This convenience makes Kraken one of the best platforms to use for crypto trading. Aside from this, the layout is extremely easy to navigate.

Some of the most popular banks you can link to immediately include:

  • Chase
  • Wells Fargo
  • TD Bank
  • Bank of America
  • and PNC Bank

Online banking payments are secured and you also have the option to choose from 1,000 other banks if you don’t use the most common ones.

Other popular banks include Ally, Capital One, U.S. Bank, and BMO Harris just to name a few. This list is huge which means it should be no problem finding your personal bank to start now.

Begin by creating your account first

Creating your account with Kraken is very self explanatory. Follow the steps and input all of your information to get started.

This part of the process is as simple as opening a bank account for example. If you have a brokerage account for stocks then you’ll find it’s almost an identical process.

Congratulations! You’ve now created your account to buy Bitcoin. Purchasing it is just as simple if not easier than creating your account.

All you simply have to do is navigate your cursor to the top of the web page where it details ‘Buy Crypto‘. Here you’ll be able to input the amount of money you will be investing in for Bitcoin or any other crypto using the drop down menu.

Buy Bitcoin

That same menu will display Bitcoin price in real-time. When you click on the Kraken logo on the top left corner of the page you will be redirected to your holdings.

Here you’ll see the price you purchased BTC and gain access to your gains or losses. All the information on this page is super easy to read.

Can you buy a fraction of Bitcoin?

Absolutely! You can put $100 or $10,000 into BTC and your purchase will execute in the form of fractions. Your investment will then go up as the market value for BTC continues to surge.

Unlike most stock market brokerage accounts, you can buy fractions of all type of crypto with Kraken. This is extremely convenient for the average retail investor.

When you buy Bitcoin you’re going to see the balance available in the form of decimal fractions. My very first investment in BTC was $100; this translated to 0.00174 BTC. Your fraction count will increase as you buy more of that investment.

Is it too late to buy Bitcoin?

Contrary to what most novice investors might believe, it is not too late to buy BTC crypto. Yes BTC was once a few bucks but just because it’s worth what it is today does not mean it’s too late to invest in it.

Trajectories show BTC is well on its way to new records. And although there has been a huge market selloff recently, BTC is moving up again.

You can now buy more fractions of a Bitcoin today than you could prior to this liquidation. I’m personally taking advantage of it.

How high can Bitcoin go?

Experts and analysts believe BTC will continue to surge well into the 100k range during this decade. Andrei Jikh even believes BTC could reach $500,000.

Can BTC reach $500,000?

I don’t doubt BTC will continue to surge and reach well beyond 6-figures. With this dip in the market, now is the perfect time to buy at discount.

Don’t ask me how much you should invest in Bitcoin though. This will vary from investor to investor. All I know is that the opportunity to multiply your money with crypto is there.

If you’ve made profit from Doge, I would allocate these gains into BTC in case you’re thinking of investing in this crypto. Remember, unlike Doge which is inflationary, BTC is deflationary. Meaning it has no ceiling as to how high it can go.

But that’s not all. Chamath, who predicted Bitcoin’s current price point since inception, is confident this cryptocurrency will continue surging well above $100k.

Chamath was an early investor of Bitcoin and Facebook. This venture capitalist predicted Bitcoin would be worth well over $10k when the price was only a few dollars.

And lastly…

If you gained any value from this blog post please be sure to share it. It helps us reach more like minded individuals looking to improve their lives by learning to invest.

And if you haven’t started investing in the stock market yet, read this step by step guide on how to start today.

Every AMC Ape Will Be Profitable In September

Every AMC Ape Will Be Profitable In September

Apes were chatting about their gains on paper on my Discord this evening. Brandi mentioned she was finally seeing her account transition from red to green. It’s these type of discussions that really get me fired up.

Knowing my community is profitable motivates me to keep doing what I love doing. And that’s writing great content for you.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – if your AMC account is still red, I’m here to tell you profits are on their way to you right now.

Lets get started!

Now, anybody who got in on AMC stock prior to today’s share price level is profitable. You might have gotten in at $30, $15, or even at $5 when I first started blogging about this massive opportunity.

If you remember me blogging about AMC since early February leave me a comment below! I’m curious to know how many OG apes are still reading FrankNez.

However, newer apes are either on the brink of being profitable or have yet to break even. If that’s you, don’t worry. I was there myself.

History Is About To Repeat Itself

You might have heard somewhere that September is starting to feel a little like May. And that’s because we’re starting to see a trend here. Before AMC moved up in June, it had a long period of consolidation. Once it broke that consolidation, it began trending upwards before making the incredible climb past $70 per share.

Well apes, we just broke the $30 level of consolidation late August and are on track to break $50 per share once we retest $48 again. The reason why $48 is so important is because AMC has tested this level three times already.

This bullish indicator has shown us that once it tests a level its fourth time, it tends to break in a momentum run.

This is where whales, known as institutions, begin to buy again. New retail investors are going to jump in on the stock and shorts are going to lose a ton of money.

Short sellers were able to withstand the first round, but will they be able to handle phase two?

We’ve Come Back With A Bigger Ape Army

Did you notice the massive drops in the crypto markets? Seems like someone is liquidating profits for something big that’s about to take place.

Remember, Charles Schwab raised margin requirements for short sellers shorting both AMC and GameStop. On top of this, the NSCC has raised margin minimums from $10,000 to $250,000.

This means short sellers are under some serious heat. But guess what community? We’ve come back with a bigger ape army than the first time. The knowledge spread, and so did the conviction towards this short squeeze play.

Apes aren’t going anywhere until shorts have covered their positions. And you know what? We’ll still be here even then.

I know some of you cannot wait until you’re able to retire from this short squeeze play. But I’m not retiring. I will continue to be here for you even after we’ve mooned.

How Soon Will All AMC Apes Be Profitable?

A good number of you have actually just transitioned to being profitable. If that’s you please leave a comment below letting other apes know!

Although I do not know at what level you will be profitable, I do know that AMC is about to break $50 per share relatively soon due to chart patterns.

Breaking this level is going to kickstart another runup past $70 and beyond, fundamentally. And you know what this means right?

As long as apes continue to hodl, this price movement could ignite the rocket we’ve all been patiently strapped to. There’s absolutely no way smaller short sellers will be able to afford holding their positions a second wave.

Their accounts could even potentially get liquidated as the stock becomes harder to borrow. For hedge funds, this could mean the short borrow fee rate goes up, resulting in greater losses.

In summary, shorts drown in debt and losses while the ape community profits ‘x’ times over . September is proving to be a great month indeed.

Should You Buy AMC Stock Now?

should you buy amc stock now?

If you’re looking to add to your position, now could be a great time to do so before we break $50 and really begin to move forward.

We may consolidate in the high $40s a little longer before retesting $48 for the fourth time, we may not. Just as I was certain about breaking $30 last month, I’m certain we will be seeing $50+ very soon though.

I will continue to update the community as we progress so be sure to subscribe to the newsletter or follow me on social media. I will be leaving those links below.

Are you profitable right now?

And lastly, the community would love to know. Are you profitable? What do your gains look like on paper? Leave a comment below. At the time of this publication I’m up more than $36k and hodling STRONG.

How to Invest In The Stock Market (Step by Step) For Beginners

How to Invest In The Stock Market
How to invest in the stock market step by step for beginners

There comes a point when you realize that in order to build wealth it will require you to build multiple streams of income. The average millionaire has seven. The stock market is one way you can invest your earned income in order to start earning passive income and multiply your money. Here’s how to invest in the stock market step by step for beginners.

franknez.com how to invest in the stock market step by step for beginners

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 been investing in the stock market since 2019. When I learned how to open a brokerage account and buy company stock, I knew I had to show people how to do it too.

Everything I found online was outdated so I wanted to make it easy for people to start. This is how you do it.

#1. Set a budget when planning to invest

set a budget when investing

Before you begin to invest you will need to set a budget on your first investment(s). The great thing about the stock market is that you can invest with as little as $50 or so depending on the cost of a share.

A share is a fraction of a company you can own and earn money from as the company grows and profits over a period of time.

Example

If you set a budget of $200 and the share of a company you want to invest in costs $50 then you can purchase (4) four shares of said company. If a month later the shares your purchased are worth $60 each then your shares would now be worth $240, resulting in a $40 gain. This is how investing in the stock market works.

Note: I highly recommend having your emergency fund built prior to proceeding with investing in the stock market.

It is important to highlight that the money you invest in the stock market will need to be money you can tolerate losing. The stock market is volatile meaning the value of your assets is constantly going up and down.

Something to keep in mind is that the value of your investments can go down just as fast if not faster than they went up. Now, this is not addressed to scare you. The stock on average has an annual return of 6-8% per year.

Why should you invest in stocks?

Investing in stocks is a great way to diversify your portfolio. You don’t want to keep all your eggs in one basket. For this reason, the wealthy invest in companies they believe have long-term potential to thrive and to multiply their investment.

#2. Know what to invest in

Now that you’ve set a budget you’ll need to know what you want to invest in. Once you do, find the stock market symbol of the company on Google search engine.

If you wanted to invest in Coca-Cola for example, you’d search ‘stock market symbol for Coca-Cola’ on Google.

You’ll see that the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) symbol for Coca-Cola is KO. This is how you will identify and search for companies to invest in when you’re in the market to buy stocks.

Here are some different type of investments you can invest in within the NYSE.

Stocks

Invest in stocks coca cola stock

A stock is a share of a company just like Coca-Cola. Buying a share from one specific company is a stock. Stocks are good to purchase if you strongly believe in the continued success of your choice of company. Invest in companies that have room to grow and are constantly innovating.

Stocks I personally favor are Tesla, Apple, and Amazon. These tech companies are always innovating therefore I have strong conviction towards their continued growth and success.

Index Funds

Invest in index funds

An index fund is a fund that tracks and follows the index (growth) of a group of companies.

When you own a share of an index fund, you own a percentage of a pool of companies oppose to just one company. What makes an index fund great is that if a company within an index fund isn’t performing very well there are other companies that may balance the overall performance of the fund resulting in a fair return.

A popular choice is the S&P500. This index fund tracks the performance of the top 500 companies in the United States. This type of investment tends be a less risky and yield great profits over the long run. It’s an investors favorite and I personally hold share in the S&P500.

Bookmark: Retire a millionaire with the S&P500: is it possible?

REITS

Invest in REITS

A REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust Fund) is very similar to an index fund. The only exception is that it invests exclusively in real estate companies oppose to other businesses.

If you want to invest in real estate without the hassle of learning the game, using cash up front, or getting into debt, REITs are a great way to diversify your portfolio into the real estate sector.

A great REIT I’m invested in is VNQ with Vanguard.

Which investment is right for you?

Each of these investments has their own benefits. My suggestion is to research them individually as all of our needs are very unique. As your skills develop as a retail investor, you’ll find yourself having a diversified portfolio consisting of all three.

Invest in the stock market and learn to identify which investment is best for you.

Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.

Warren buffett

#3. Choose a Brokerage Firm to Begin Investing in The Stock Market

This is the fun part. Choose a reputable online brokerage firm. A brokerage firm is a platform where you will be doing all of your investing through the NYSE.

Here you’ll be able to purchase stocks and sell them. Each brokerage firm has their own customer advantages but are very similar to use. Here is a list of brokerage firms you can open an account with and sign up for free.

Check out each brokerage firm’s website and see which feels more comfortable for you to navigate. Do some research on each of them to see which has the strongest potential for your needs. I personally use Vanguard.

Vanguard investment - brokerage to invest in stocks

Note: When you purchase investments, there are small commission fees your investments will pay out to the firm. They are very small in most cases and don’t hinder your earnings like you’d think. Vanguard has the lowest fees.

Each brokerage firm will have different commission fees and the percentage will vary in each firm. For example: Coke (KO) will have a slightly different commission fee in every firm despite having the same share cost.

#4. Open your account

For this step-by-step on how to invest in the stock market I’m going to use Vanguard. Vanguard is one of the most reliable brokerage accounts you can use.

Choose the method you will be funding your new account. You can choose between:

  • Electronic bank transfer or another Vanguard account
  • Rollover from an employer plan (e.g., 401(k) plan)
  • Transfer investments from another financial firm

Most new retail investors will be choosing the first option, using an electronic bank transfer to fund your account.

Before you open your account to begin investing in the stock market you’ll need your bank account and routing number as well as other personal information.

Once you’re in it’s time to transfer funds into your account.

#5. Transfer Funds Into Your Brokerage Account

Congratulations! Now that you’ve chosen a brokerage account to invest with, you’ll have the tools at your disposal to begin investing.

Navigate throughout your brokerage website. Get comfortable with where things are. Things might seem very new at first, intimidating even. Don’t worry, now that you’ve begun something new you’ll begin to take the first steps toward self education.

First, you’ll want to learn how to transfer funds into your brokerage account. I will be demonstrating step by step how to do this using Vanguard.

Toggle the settings to connect your bank account with your brokerage account so you can start to invest in the stock market. This direct line will allow you to transfer funds into your account so you may begin to purchase shares. Once you have this set up you may transfer the money from your budget to invest in.

#6. Make Your Very First Investment in The Stock Market

Now that you’ve transferred your funds over to your brokerage account, navigate through the site to make your very first purchase. Search the symbol of the stock, index, or REIT you will be investing in.

Note: Before purchasing, make sure you thoroughly navigate the website to get comfortable using it. This will make the purchase experience a lot easier.

Once you pull up the investment, go through the details provided on the page. You should be able to see its history, it’s projected return, its risk level, and so much more information about the investment.

Invest Vanguard

Purchase the investment!

Purchase the investment with the option set to ‘Market’. This option will allow you to purchase the investment instantly at the price it’s worth.

We suggest doing a test purchase since this is your first time investing in the stock market. This will help you get a feel for it. Purchase one share so you understand the process. It will serve as good practice and experience.

Congrats on buying your first share!

Follow up on your investment the following day and see whether your investment had gains or losses. You’ll see for the very first time how your investment grew in value or decreased in value. You now have a taste of what it’s like to invest in the stock market.

Why SPY Stock is The Perfect Retirement Vehicle

SPY Stock
$SPY Stock S&P 500 ETF Warren Buffett

SPY stock was the very first stock I purchased when I first began investing back in 2019. In fact, I bought shares of the index fund under VOO from Vanguard.

I bought in at around $320 per share, SPY stock price today is worth approximately $447. It’s crazy to believe the S&P 500 was worth $44 back in the 90s. It’s had a quite the climb and I’m excited to see my portfolio grow with this index fund.

franknez.com SPY stock

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to discuss with you one of my favorite stocks and why I think it’s the perfect retirement vehicle.

Lets get started!

1. SPY Stock Growth

spy stock growth

SPY stock is the perfect long term growth investment vehicle. The S&P 500 has an incredible 917% return since inception, and a 21.2% return year-to-date.

SPY stock is they type of stock that will always move in an upwards trend because the S&P 500 index tracks the top 500 companies in the U.S. The sentiment behind business in the U.S. to always do better than the previous year.

Companies aren’t in business to consolidate for several years. They’re in business to provide more value the following year than they did the previous year.

It’s this type of mentality that’s going to allow SPY stock to surge throughout the coming years and decades.

[Click here for a full list of companies in the S&P 500]

Did You Know Warren Buffett Loves The S&P 500?

Warren Buffett S&P 500

You might know Warren Buffett for being one of the most successful stock pickers of our time. If you follow him you’re quite aware of how much he encourages new retail investors to invest in a growth driven index fund like the S&P 500, or SPY stock (VOO).

In fact, Warren Buffett wants to move 90% of his wealth into the S&P 500 after he’s gone.

The Oracle of Omaha even said he’s instructed the trustee in charge of his estate to invest 90 percent of his money into the S&P 500 for his wife after he dies, Buffett told CNBC’s Becky Quick in an exclusive interview on “Squawk Box”.

WOW! That says a lot about SPY stock coming from Warren Buffett himself. If you think about it, it took Warren so many years of trial and error to figure out his best bet was to simply invest in a long term growth index fund.

This leads me to believe that anything else in the market could very well be played short term to add to this long term retirement vehicle. For instance, I’m heavily invested in the momentum stock, AMC.

I’ve made a tremendous amount of gains (on paper) but don’t plan on cashing out until it squeezes. You can bet I’m parking a ton of cash in SPY stock.

#2. SPY Stock Pays Dividends

Spy stock dividend

The S&P 500 has a dividend yield of 1.25% and an annual dividend of $5.573. A company provides dividends, or a ‘payout’ to it’s shareholders for holding the stock. It’s a little lower now then it has been before (3-5% dividend yield) but this fluctuates. Dividends are not the same as ROI or annual returns.

Investors love dividends because it allows us to either cash in this payout, or reinvest it back into the stock. When you reinvest your dividends back into SPY stock, you begin accumulating fractions of the share which eventually leads to the stock buying another share on its own.

Put enough cash in SPY stock and this snowball can grow quite large over the years. I’ve been personally investing in momentum stocks this entire year so I haven’t updated my SPY stock position just yet.

However, it’s one of my top stock picks for my long term portfolio. Let me know if you own SPY stock in the comment section of the blog below. I’d love to know.

#3. Annual Return of 13.55% In Recent Years

SPY Stock Annual Return

SPY stock has had an amazing return of 13.55% over the past 3 years. Since inception, the S&P 500 has yielded an annual return of approximately 10%.

If you make $5 million dollars from momentum trading, pay your taxes, and put at least $1 million in SPY stock then you could be earning a whopping $100k yearly return.

If you put $2 million and leave yourself with the remaining in your pocket, well then now you’re earning $200k per year and have a cool $1.3 million in your pocket.

This is just an example of how new retail investors can use SPY stock as a long term retirement vehicle that will continue to multiply your profits.

Using this same example, I would personally leave $3 million in SPY stock and leave the $300k in my pocket. Some of this money could go into other stocks or crypto, or even other momentum trades.

The S&P 500 Always Grows

Index Fund Growth

Through the ups and downs, throughout economic downturns and abundance, SPY stock has always grown.

When is the best time to buy the S&P 500? In my opinion, when the stock is on discount. During the COVID pandemic the stock market tanked but the wealthy made a lot of money.

How? Because they took advantage of the fire sale and loaded up on ‘cheap’ stock, or ‘discounted’ stock. As stock price began to rise again, the wealthy began to see profit.

This is how the rich get richer during economic downturns. One thing is certain, SPY stock is safer than picking individual stocks to grow your stock portfolio.

And individual stock may become volatile or may plunge and maybe even go bankrupt. And if a company goes bankrupt, you lose all your money in that company.

SPY stock on the other hand always levels out. If a few companies aren’t performing too well, it can always be balanced or countered by companies that are doing extremely great. This is what makes the index fund such an attractive asset to both novice and experienced investors alike.

The Cold Hard Truth About Wealth Inequality

Wealth Inequality
Wealth Inequality

What is the concern with wealth inequality? What is the argument? If gender inequality can be defined as allowing people different opportunities due to perceived differences based solely on issues of gender, can the same be said about wealth inequality?

Is the argument that the wealth are provided with more opportunities than the middle class and the poor are? That’s a big copout.

franknez

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to educate and perhaps open your mind to what we will be discussing today if you had a different point of view.

Lets get started!

I am excited about today’s blog topic. I absolutely love talking about building wealth and helping educate those who want a bigger life for themselves and their loved ones.

I’ve recently seen something within the community that got me wondering, if you hate the wealthy why are you in a community that wants to make a ton of money? It makes no sense to me!

But, I understand not everyone has been exposed to my content, or other content circulating financial literacy. Here’s what I think about wealth inequality.

Wealth Distribution Just Sounds Silly

Who is going to distribute the wealth? The government? The wealthy person up the hill? No. No one owes the people a distribution of wealth. Distribution of wealth is a communist mindset where everyone gets equal shares and benefits from your work.

But what if you provide more value in the marketplace? Would you be happy earning the same as someone who underperformed? No, you wouldn’t.

Wealth distribution occurs within families and generations or through the work of philanthropists, not within the ordinary people. See, the thing is that wealth inequality is a way for ordinary people to complain about their ‘lack of’ rather than to take responsibility for their own actions.

I mean we’ve heard it all before. The rich should pay more taxes, how do they make more money during economic crashes, etc. To clarify, when you own a business, you’re able to deduct a ton of expenses from your business which means you will either pay very little to no taxes.

Regarding crashes, everything in the markets is on discount. The wealthy take advantage of these sales rather than the online retail sales ordinary people take instead. The wealthy take advantage of these sales (whether it be in property or stocks) and their investments grow as the economy begins to do better.

Is Wealth Inequality A Problem?

It most absolutely is a problem. Ordinary people are not being provided with the financial education they deserve. It’s creating a scarcity mindset which targets the wealthy as some sort of adversary.

Yes wealth inequality is a massive problem in America. Our own people aren’t being shown how to multiply their money or how to start a business. I think it’s time America is known for being an entrepreneurial country where its people know nothing else but abundance.

What causes wealth inequality? Wealth inequality is caused by the absence of financial education, or financial literacy. Most people simply don’t know where to start.

Ditch Old Habits

America needs to ditch old habits. The rich are evil, money isn’t everything, I’m so sick of the rich getting wealthier while the poor get poorer. Then do something about it.

Wealthy people are able to bless the pockets of other people, especially if they deserve it. They’re not cruel or evil, many give to their church or charity of choice. We live in a world where money is ‘access’. Money is access to the type of place you live in, it’s access to the type of car you drive, it’s access to the experiences you decide you want in life.

Enough of this ‘access’ and you have freedom of time. See, most people who build wealth build it so they don’t ever need to worry about money. They build it to be able to give and to take care of their families and perhaps pursue their passions without worrying about money.

You cannot attract money if you hate money. Money is good, money is a blessing. Money is an energy that cannot come into your life if you’re against those who have it.

Wealth inequality is a choice.

Do The Wealthy Really Have More Opportunity?

The fact of the fact is that you and I have the same opportunities to build wealth as the wealthy do. What separates ordinary people from you and I is that they don’t believe they do.

They believe the wealthy got lucky or were born into wealth. According to Forbes, 84% of newly millionaires are self-made, outranking billionaires which shows are about 72%.

The millionaires I follow are all self-made. You have Grant Cardone who’s from Louisiana and started from nothing, Patrick Bet-David who came from Iran as a child, and there’s just so many more!

We all have the opportunity to:

Because ultimately these tools are all used by the wealth to get wealthier. Wealth is created by constantly learning and discipling yourself to progress no matter the setbacks.

Someone who’s built wealth for 20 years certainly has more access, therefore opportunities than we do. However, the foundation to wealth building is there for everyone.

How Can Wealth Inequality Be Fixed?

You cannot fix something that’s not broken. People in America all have opportunity. Period. No matter where you come from or what your story is. Everyone has a chance to make it happen for themselves. Wealth inequality is a silly term. People need to educate themselves first and figure out what in their lives needs to start changing.

Why Has Wealth Inequality Increased?

‘Wealth inequality’ has increased because the school system has not changed. Families are not educating themselves nor are they educating the upbringing. Lack of financial literacy is why wealth inequality has increased.

Financial literacy teaches us the basics of money. It shows us the difference between linear income, royalties, residual income, how to invest, how to manage money, and so much more.

While most people tend to spend their entire income and settle for a mediocre job, people with a wealthy mindset learn how to save to invest, and look for opportunities to increase their income instead.

This is why financial literacy is so important for people who want to grow their wealth. Start there.

Where Can I Learn About Building Wealth?

I pack a ton of information on wealth building using my blog. I provide my readers with information I’ve learned by studying the greatest wealth builders of our time. Knowledge is wasted knowledge unless it’s applied knowledge, as I say.

Once I started applying knowledge, I was able to take my net worth from $0 to $56k to eventually my first 6-figures. Be open to receive, the world is abundant and there’s plenty to go around.

Here are a few people I recommend you consume your content from:

  • Frank Nez (of course)
  • Grant Cardone
  • Patrick Bet-David
  • Dave Ramsey
  • Graham Stephen
  • Andrei Jikh
  • Tony Robins
  • Gary Vaynerchuck

By consuming this content, you will be priming your mindset for success. You will learn that there is no shortage of money, and that mindset plays a heavier role in your journey than you ever thought it would.

You can overcome the concept of wealth inequality by educating yourself and learning as much as you can. Once I discovered how to increase my income and multiply my earnings, it was my calling to teach you.

I am you.

If you know someone who cannot stand the wealthy or has a very negative sentiment towards the rich, show them this blog article. Perspective can do a lot great and positive things.

Let me know your thoughts on wealth inequality. Do you agree people simply lack the tools and education to get started? I’d love to know what you think.

How Much Money I Earn As A Full-Time Finance Blogger

How much money do blogger make
How much money do bloggers make?

Keyword, earn, not ‘make’. Blogging has been quite a journey. Maybe some of you remember, Franknez.com went live on the 1st of January, 2020. I’ll never forget my younger brother’s initial thoughts, “I never expected you to become a blogger”. Yeah, well neither did I.

I was working full-time for my parents business and had a rather secure and stable income. I was privileged to have a base salary and on top of that earn a commission for every sale I made.

By the time I left the company, I had built a 6-figure clientele over a span of 5 and half years. I went from earning $32k per year to $55k per year within that timeframe. And that’s when I said I NEED OUT.

There was just so much more I could give. I am beyond grateful for the opportunity and believe me I took as much of it as I could. I learned so much from project management and sales. So, how much am I earning now as a blogger?

Welcome to Franknez.com – today’s topic will be blogging and money. I will discuss a little bit about my blogging journey and how I was able to make it work full-time.

Lets get started.

No One Starts At The Top

Seriously – check out my LinkedIn experience history. I graduated high school and got into debt like most of you just to receive an associates degree in Business Administration.

If I knew then what I know now, I would have never gone to college because unless you want to become a niche specialist, it’s a debt trap. My fiancé went into the Medical Assistant Program, trained extensively in Los Angeles after graduating and become one of the youngest and most successful RMA’s of our time. She’s worked with an incredible amount of specialists, cared for ‘patients’ at a women’s prison, and became the lead MA instructor for a private college.

Enough boasting but you get my point. In this scenario it makes sense to get a degree.

In my case, I didn’t need a degree to work for the family business. Although my father did require it of me if I wanted to learn the ropes (know when to not take advice from family). Nor did I need it for my first two failed startups, or my current businesses.

After I graduated high school I worked as a machine operator for my parents business earning $9/hr. During college I worked for a bottle producing company which was the most labor intense thing I’ve ever done. Once I graduated college I worked as an accounting clerk for the family business. The rest you can find in my eBook “Reaching The $10K Mark: How Perseverance Overrides Adversity“, where I talk about the start of my sales journey leading up to the end of the family business chapter.

My point is, I didn’t get where I am today without taking the steps first. It was my ambition and hunger for more that ultimately started reshaping my mindset towards newer successes. All mine, from scratch. If you’re finding yourself in a position where you want to try something new, just remember this; you’re not starting from zero but rather from experience.

Why Did I Start A Blog ?

Before I get to the money part, I want to explain why I started blogging in the first place. Financial literacy had become a very important part of my life prior to starting my blog and I’ve always loved writing.

For me to attain the financial goals I was setting for myself and my family, I had to understand the basics of financial literacy to make it happen.

Once I learned how easy it was to invest in the stock market I felt like I had a secret I just needed to share. My finance professors in college didn’t teach us this so I wanted to provide this information to the public.

I learned that I had an ability to take in information and present it in a way that my readers found it easy to digest. On top of that, I knew that a blog could provide me with passive income while I continued to grow in my intrapreneurial (then) and entrepreneurial journey.

Monetizing My Blog

There are many ways to earn money from a blog – there’s affiliate marketing, paid sponsors, advertising, online services, and even the selling of a product.

I knew I could blog for the rest of my life after publishing my very first blog post. I enjoyed it and wanted to help people improve their lives financially.

If I could monetize my blog with ads then I would have figured out a way to earn passive income! I monetized Franknez.com with ads from Google AdSense around the last week of January, about 3 and half weeks after going live.

What most people don’t know is that my blog was rejected 6 times. “You don’t have enough content, you don’t have an audience, YOUR BLOG HAS NO VALUE”. Every time my blog was rejected, I rushed to figure out the issue and make the changes immediately. That’s how dedicated I was to monetizing my knowledge online.

I wanted ads to be one of the primary ways the blog earned money because it meant the more the website scaled, the more it earned.

2020 Earnings Report

After working every day, January 1st – December 31st for 5 hours after work, I earned over 8K blog hits. How much money did this earn me? It earned me $29.37.

No, really. Here’s the proof.

I probably earned an additional $5 from an affiliate program. So why would I keep going if that’s all I earned after a year of blogging? Most people would have been discouraged and quit blogging for good. And that’s what most bloggers do.

I didn’t stop because:

  1. I love writing, &
  2. My conviction was strong

I knew that for me to succeed it would require me to learn and learn, and learn. Though we were in a lockdown at the time, I wasn’t part of the create a tik-tok video or binge Netflix crew.

I was putting in the work and learning as much as I could so that I could change my worldview. Everyone has a why, a reason for doing the things they do. My why is so important to me, that nothing will ever stop me from attaining what I desire.

This is why I didn’t quit blogging. In fact, I started blogging full-time by May of 2021 when a community of growing new retail investors had discovered me earlier this year. Prior to leaving Google AdSense, I earned $2,327.98 up to around May.

Blogging Today

What happened next changed my world. Not just mine, but my family’s too. Franknez.com signed to Mediavine Finance, this partnership would pay big buck for displaying high quality advertisement on my blog.

The requirements? Your blog had to be receiving more than 50,000 visitors per month to be eligible. The community that discovered me put me on the radar and the rest is history.

Franknez.com has provided value to a little over 1.4 million people as of the date of this publication. If you’ve read my homepage you’ll know my mission has been to provide millions of readers with immense value through my platform.

The amount of work and trial and error, the setbacks and pushback has been immense as well. This journey has not been easy and I am still learning to-date. Scaling this online business has been a massive challenge and I’m excited for what my readers have in store.

How Much Money Is My Blog Earning Right Now?

Earnings highly depend on a few things. The season is one of them because advertisers tend to spend more on advertising during certain seasons and less during others.

The second is on the type of content I produce. Content like the one I’m writing about now doesn’t have as high return as my personal finance articles do. At least to advertisers they don’t.

Blog posts where I get to talk to my readers like this one tend to be my personal favorite though. It’s easy to speak from within. The year is not over so I can’t reveal how much I’ve made since I’ve signed with Mediavine.

However, I can show you how much Franknez.com made during one of my busiest traffic months back in June. My blog provided value to over 500K visitors and earned a whopping $18,239.43 in revenue that month alone.

Mediavine Payout

Get your brand marketing right, your community right, your content right, and you too can make this happen. I don’t know how many of you reading this article also want to blog but I wrote an article on how you can start your very own blog (step by step) and also provide you with blogging ideas that may fit your worldview.

Can Anyone Blog?

I’m not publishing this article to brag, far from it. I’m publishing this article because maybe it can help someone create something that can change their lives and the lives of others.

I tell my brothers, I tell my father, my fiancé – anyone can blog. One of my brother is a Pharm Tech and plays video games when he’s not working. He built an amazing gaming setup. He can easily blog about that niche in the video game world and provide value to the right community. Possibly even leave his career if he scales it!

My father’s business can easily be monetized with a blog. It’s a niche industry so he could easily write and break down everything there is to know about the business. He could help small businesses understand the ropes and earn passive income from it.

How Does This Apply To You?

Say you’re a single mom who loves to work out. You can blog about your lifestyle and schedule around your interest/hobby. With proper branding and a niche target audience, your articles will be seen.

Maybe you work with a spouse. You can write about the challenges, pros and cons, and perhaps even advice to other people with the same lifestyle.

Are you an Uber driver or a Dasher? Create a blog about your experiences, people would love to know strange encounters, weird people, and things of that nature. People are curious about how much these freelancers earn as well. You can get deep about your lifestyle and how it correlates with this industry.

There’s no shortage of people who can read your blog, and there’s no limitation to the amount of money you can earn from blogging.

If there’s anything you should take from this article it’s that anything is possible when you set your intentions and put in the work. Maybe you don’t want to start a blog but are intrigued with the idea of starting an online business.

I published an article on trending online business ideas and different business models that might be for you. You can read the article here.

Success Tips to Multiply Your Profits When AMC Moons

Ways to make money when AMC squeezes
Ways to make money with AMC short squeeze profits

Retail investors are extremely excited with the data that’s about to drive an AMC short squeeze. AMC Entertainment has the perfect setup to squeeze shorts out of their positions right now.

Apes, did you know that about 70% of lottery winners lose it all? My work today is to provide you with investing tips so you can avoid this mistake and keep all of your money.

I don’t just want you to keep it however, I want to show you how you can multiply it too. Here are 5 success tips to multiply your profits when AMC moons.

franknez.com financial literacy blog

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.

Disclaimer: This article is going to focus on the financial aspects of money, not on the noble and charitable opportunities that can come out of immense winnings. I’m 100% pro giving and helping causes in need of access. This article is going to cover ways to multiply your profits so that you may continue to give back to your community and other noble causes.

Lets get started!

Retail investors

A lot of you are going to make a lot of money. I mean a ton of freaking money. I’m talking about stupid money. Money that gives you a rush to your chest and doesn’t let you sleep at night.

It’s no coincidence you’re here right now. You’re about to participate in the biggest transfer of wealth in all of history. The fact you’re here right now by your own will is because you’re responsible and want to learn how to not only maintain your profits but how to multiply your profits. I’ve grown my net worth using four of these strategies. #3 I have yet to do. Lets begin with the first strategy of reinvesting your profits back into the stock market.

#1. Continue investing in stocks

Invest in stocks
Franknez.com

If you’re a beginner and AMC is your first stock then I recommend you do some stock picking and start investing in your favorite companies. These should be companies you believe in.

Although most retail investors are going to be trading AMC stock during its squeeze, you might want to consider investing in it long-term. Especially if AMC begins to offer their shareholders a dividend.

What is a dividend?

A dividend is a payout that shareholders receive as a bonus from a company’s profits. Companies usually offer a dividend as an incentive to its shareholders for investing in the company.

I’ve personally reached out to Adam Aron inquiring if this is something shareholders will be experiencing in the near future. And although he hasn’t responded, I would personally invest in AMC long-term if we were provided with long-term benefits.

Why invest in stocks?

Stocks are generally a long-term strategy for creating wealth. You can take a portion of your AMC earnings and buy stocks, REITS, and index funds of all sorts!

Successful stock investing will require you to diversify your portfolio. By diversifying your portfolio you can ensure that your investments are balanced when a specific stock is having a bad day or a bad week.

How do I know which stocks to pick?

We can’t all be Warren Buffett’s but stock picking takes practice. I found that through research and careful consideration, the performance of a stock says it all.

While most of the market has been red with the exception of ‘meme stocks’, 90%-95% of my stocks were green. That’s because the stocks I’ve picked are stocks that are essential and will never go away.

I share my private top winning stocks exclusively on my Patreon and when I update them. I recently started this membership to provide my readers with even more valuable information you can’t find in any of my other platforms.

#2. High-yield savings or money market account

High yield savings or money market account

Community, moving money into a high-yield savings or money market account can be a great way to let your emergency fund earn you a little bit of interest.

These type of banking accounts are usually FDIC insured up to $250,000 and are a better alternative to your traditional savings account.

Can I still pull money out of it?

Absolutely. I personally use BMO Harris and the transfer time is approximately 3 business days via ACH transfer. BMO Harris had a nice 2.05% APY when I first signed up a year ago but has since dropped much lower.

So, although I will be using a different money market account soon, you can find a list of the best accounts here for the year of 2021.

Benefits of a high-yield savings account

  • Higher APY rates than a traditional bank
  • Completely passive
  • FDIC insured up to $250,000
  • Perfect for your ‘do not touch’ emergency fund

Each bank will have similar APY percentage. These are usually higher when the economy is booming, and lower when the economy has contracted.

#3. Invest in real estate

Invest in real estate

What real estate does for you is it provides you with passive income that can fund your other investments and lifestyle.

Apes, some of you are going to have the cash to buy homes upfront. You can use your tendies to purchase a piece of property and Airbnb it. Travelers can pay you money for renting your property per night.

What I personally find fascinating about real estate is that you can do so much with it. You can buy a single-family home and rent each room out if it’s near a college or university.

Some people are even renting space on their property for storage. They essentially charge a fee for allowing others to store their personal belongings where they can be safe and secure. Those who don’t have the property space themselves can benefit from you who does.

When you put your money in AMC all you did was put your money to work. Diversify the way your money works for you by investing it in other assets that can yield passive income and high returns.

Benefits of investing in real estate

  • Thousands per month in passive income
  • Equity accumulation in property over time
  • Low maintenance if hosting
  • Freedom to modify and increase a properties value

Retail investors can use their profits to create passive income and sustain cashflow using their property.

#4. Start that business you’ve been wanting to start

My fellow community – some of you cannot wait to quit your 9-5 and simply become your own boss.

Your perspective changes when you no longer work for the man because you are the man, or woman 😉

Investing a portion of your AMC profits into a project you’ve always wanted to start will not only potentially multiply your money, but it will provide you with a freedom like no other. I tell you this because I’ve done it and I know you can do it too.

I turned my side hustle into a 5-figure business before leaving my 9-5 for good. Fortunately I had money saved up to cover the costs of my startup. This is a great way for apes who made a good lump sum of money off of only a few shares to make the most of their profits from AMC.

Here are the benefits to starting your own business

  • Total freedom and control of your life
  • You have the opportunity to provide value in the marketplace and get rewarded substantially for it
  • Allows you to attain new skills which will result in more money-earning opportunities down the road

Needless to say, if you have always wanted to take the first steps into entrepreneurship then I would encourage you to believe in yourself because I believe in you.

#5. Invest your money in yourself

Gorilla gang, the last success tip on how to invest your AMC profits is to invest some of your gains in yourself.

What do I mean by this? There are several ways you can invest in your personal health and personal development.

If you’ve been needing to take care of that health problem or can finally afford that new set of pearly whites, whatever it is; take the leap. Use your new means to invest in yourself so you can become the best version of yourself.

Perhaps your dream is to become a specialist in a field. Invest in your education and make your dreams come true. When you begin to invest in your knowledge and in your self worth, the value you provide to the world multiplies ten times over. You can invest your money in any course of your choosing that will allow you to excel in our society without the financial hurdles.
