franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog providing you with content on stocks, crypto, and market news. Today we’re discussing AMC Entertainment stock.

Lets get started!

How soon will we see an AMC short squeeze?

Retail investors all want to know.

Is it this week?

Will it be next week?

Or, are we looking at a longer game here?

Here’s what we know.

Key Highlights

  • AMC closed at $12.78 on July 5th. The stock continues to be heavily shorted. AMC Entertainment is set up for a short squeeze.

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.

Strong chance of a short squeeze – Fox Business AMC

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

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

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

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

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

Adam aron, President and CEO of AMC Entertainment

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

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

Melvin Capital closing in June

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

This is huge.

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

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

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

Here’s why this matters:

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

Here’s what retail investors can do:

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

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

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

Positive news for AMC Entertainment (archive 2021)

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

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

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

A short squeeze could even put them out of business.

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

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

Is AMC Shorted?

AMC’s current short interest is around 18%.

As of 7/5, we’re seeing 150,000 shares have been made available to borrow (for now), via Stonk-O-Tracker.

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

AMC Short Shares Available to borrow

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

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

There are finally investigations going around regarding naked shorting.

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

BREAKING: Anchorage Capital closes after betting against AMC stock

What does this mean for the AMC shareholder?

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

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

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

I am personally doubling down.

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

Which of course now introduces revenue.

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

It’s really hard to tell.

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

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

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

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

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

It’s tendie time!

Analyst AMC predictions

With that being said, Trey’s Trades predicts a short squeeze is 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 – AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Stocktwits

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.

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

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

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

How are they doing this?

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

This is what retail investors can do to fight corruption

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

It seems we’ve already hit the bottom.

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

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

We’ve seen resistant levels around $14-$16 recently which is a great push from $5.

We’re now sitting at $12.78 per share.

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

AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Stocktwits

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

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

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

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!

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

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

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

Absolutely not, at least not yet.

AMC Entertainment is still heavily shorted.

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

AMC Entertainment stock has not even started squeezing yet.

Redditors have touched base on this topic and 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 or even today.

However, AMC gets really uncomfortable under $30 per share.

Related: Are Institutions Preparing to Close Short Positions in AMC?

What if a short squeeze doesn’t happen?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As Mark Cuban bluntly put it, keep holding.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

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

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

  1. 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 7/5 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 14.70%.

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

Retail investors should not be concerned.

Is AMC Ever Going To Squeeze?

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

Shorts and hedge funds continue to lose money every day.

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

The lives of these retail investors are about to completely change.

Say goodbye to your old world.

AMC continues to be one of retail investors favorite stocks.

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.

Well, just how high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

AMC stock price closed at $13.53 on July 1st. The share volume remains healthy as AMC is primed to take off.

We have broken the $30 and $40 levels of consolidation but have now come down. How soon will AMC rip?

Most of the market has been on sale and AMC has been no exception to that until now.

But AMC wants to keep climbing.

The stock continues to consolidate as short sellers find loopholes to short the stock.

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on stocks, crypto, entrepreneurship, and market news.

Lets get started.

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 bearish territory due to an array of market abnormalities right now.
  2. ‘W’ shape formations in the past have indicated 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 into the new year.
  5. The stock price is still relatively low enough for majority of people to buy, but hurry before it’s too late.

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

AMC’s Short Borrow Fee

AMC short borrow fee interest

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 7/4 is: 20.20% via. Stonk-O-Tracker, this is different from the short interest of 18%.

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.

Breaking: Hedge Fund Melvin Capital Is Shutting Down in June

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 $13.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $13, resulting in even bigger losses.

Ladies and gentlemen, shorts could have closed at $5 last year.

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 continues to be one of the most shorted stocks in the market.

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 with enough momentum.

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.

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?

Vanguard

How To Get on Spotify and All Major Streaming Platforms

How to distribute your music on all major platforms - Spotify
Here’s How To Distribute Your Music To The World

If you’re a producer, singer/songwriter, or musician, earning money through your music can be a dream come true.

The good news is you no longer need to be signed to a label in order to promote or sell your music.

Are you wondering how you can get your music streamed on all major platforms and make money during the process?

More and more independent artists are getting their music on Spotify and Apple Music without being signed to a major or indie record label.

The crazy thing is that some artists are even being found on these platforms and eventually get signed when they raise enough attention.

Getting your music heard is a tough gig.

Putting your music out to platforms people enjoy using shouldn’t.

This is why more and more artists and musicians are skipping the middle-man and getting heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

Your songs have a place in the world.

They should not be collecting dust on YouTube, Reverbnation, SoundCloud, and other free platforms.

This is why people are using DistroKid to get their music on Spotify and Apple, but more on that down below.

franknez.com

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!

The benefits of streaming platforms

Streaming platforms are convenient and convenience sells. People don’t want to look for new artists or bands anymore, they want to be catered to music that is similar to what they already love and listen to.

Algorithms take into account what you love listening to and push new ‘relatable’ content that you might also enjoy. This is how independent artists are being discovered.

The algorithm records how long your song is being streamed, whether it’s being replayed or not, and how often it’s being saved.

When your tracks get this positive feedback, your streams begin to snowball. Streaming services do a great job at finding a place or person who will enjoy your music even if it’s not pop.

Streaming playlists are easy to share

Another benefit of streaming platforms is how easy playlists are easy to share. People in today’s world are constantly sharing playlists with others who have the same music tastes.

If your song(s) happen to be saved in a playlist by someone then your chances of being heard increases. Your art cannot be complacent in a platform that’s not innovating. Streaming platforms such as Spotify are the future.

Here’s how to distribute your music on all major platforms.

#1. Find a music distributor

First, you’ll need to upload your music through a music distributor service such as DistroKid, but we’ll get more in depth on that soon.

You won’t want to miss the info on how to get your music to reach the masses.

A music distributer is a company that helps musicians get their music into iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, Instagram, and other major platforms.

When your music is distributed it will have the opportunity to be heard by anyone in the world.

Before we let you know who the best distributor for independent artists is we’re going to walk you through some burning questions most artists might have.

Can you really make money from streams?

Yes. The awesome thing about getting your music on all major platforms is that you get paid every time your music is streamed!

Get paid for music streams!

That’s right! So, if you have a good following you’ll be able to monetize your music and make money every time someone streams your songs.

One day you might make a few bucks from Spotify while simultaneously earning royalties from other platforms such as Apple Music and TikTok.

If you’re passionate about reaching a huge audience, then this can be a great way to also establish multiple streams of income for yourself. You can then reinvest the profits to further your music career and provide more value to your following.

This type of income is known as leverage income. This is where you do the work once but get paid multiple times for it.

Tips For Making Money From Your Streams

  • Grow your social media followers
  • Pin your album or new song (Twitter, Facebook page, etc.)
  • Get playlisted
  • Share your music with the communities on social platforms
  • Submit your music to curators
  • Record high quality music
  • Increase your audience as much as possible
  • Engage with your following and other related pages
  • Create a street team
  • Use promotions and paid advertising

Tips for growing your social media followers

promote your music with social media

Engage with artists and other musicians in your genre. Twitter is a great platform to connect with people who can support you.

A social media hack is to click on related hashtags and begin liking peoples recent posts and even leaving a comment. This strategy is a form of saying hey this is who I am.

When people see someone liked or commented on their post, they usually tend to stalk the other persons feed. If they like what you’re about they will follow you back. If you seem interesting enough then chances are they’ll most likely listen to your music.

Growing your artist social media accounts is going to require you to work on this task every single day. When you begin to see the results it’s going to become almost addicting.

Now, there will be days where it gets tiring and days where you simply skip out on it. This is normal. However, know that if you discipline yourself and get back on track, you will be able to meet your number of followers goal.

Pin your recent track to your profile

Which brings up the second social media hack for artists. Pin your recent song to your profile. This is the first thing visitors will see. And again, if you seem interesting to them then the next thing they’ll do is check out your work.

Facebook and Twitter are two social media platforms that allow you to pin a post for high visibility.

Record high quality music

The quality of your music is really what’s going to keep people listening to your music. Most independent artists might struggle with this part of the process but it’s a reinvestment you’ll eventually have to make.

If you’re a self-recording artist, don’t stop trying to get better every time you release a new piece. Always looks for ways to improve.

If you’re content with your skills, then by all means put out your track. However, if you’re not practicing audio engineering every day, I recommend you record in a professional studio at some point.

Create a street team or promo page

A street team is a strategy that you can use to share your content when it’s released and to promote your posts. You can create a group of loyal supporters who can share, like, and comment anytime you update the street team page with content and instructions to push it out.

You can also create a promo page. This promo page can be a second alternative or addition to your promotional strategy. With a promo page you can share your street teams shares and comments to build momentum.

All this activity allows algorithms in the social media platform to push your content out to reach a bigger audience. This awareness creates hype and elevates your awareness.

Where else can I promote my music?

Millennial Music Agency is a platform that listens to your music via submissions and reviews it on their website. You can use the review as a means to sponsor and market your new single or album.

By providing artists with a platform to be seen and heard, we manifest credibility which artists can use to further their music career.

Millennial music agency (los angeles, ca)

When your music is finally being pushed out on Spotify and Apple Music, be sure to share your work as much as possible with as many groups and curators as you can.

Most curators won’t take your MP3 file or other links to free platforms. They want to share quality work and be collaborate with strong brand recognition.

This is why more independent artists are being discovered on platforms such as Spotify more than anywhere else. It’s easy to get playlisted, shared, and listened to.

Spotify Discography

Share your latest single on:

  • Facebook groups
  • Twitter artist music threads
  • Instagram stories (more below)
  • Tik-Tok stories (more below)
  • Email newsletter

Facebook groups

Facebook groups are the perfect place for musicians and artists to share creative ideas and get a chance to get their music heard. This platform has a variety of groups for just about everyone!

Instagram and TikTok stories

The music distributer we’re about to talk about shortly is able to put your songs on Instagram stories and TikTok videos.

These trending social media platforms are a great place for you to share your new track with your following and increase awareness. The cool thing is that people can click on the song whether it’s on Instagram or TikTok, and play it on Spotify or Apple Music.

Email newsletter

Email newsletters are a great way for you to share your new song or album with your fans and support group. Sometimes social media doesn’t allow your posts to reach everyone who follows you.

This is where creating an email newsletter for your fans to sign up can become handy. You can use this email newsletter to directly connect your fans with a new release in case they missed a post online.

You can also use email as a means of hyping a new song or album prior to its release. This strategy is known as email marketing. The way this works is you can email your fans promotional content such as images, artworks, and teasers of an upcoming song or album.

This creates anticipation and further help you promote your music. These marketing campaigns are what allow artists to have a big release date. This happens when they prepared their fans for the release months prior.

These strategies create a ‘portal’ to your music and makes it easy to enter peoples world.

How To Invest In Bitcoin Cryptocurrency For Beginners

How To Invest In Bitcoin Crypto
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

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.

All the markets are volatile at the moment, long-term investing takes time.

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 Coinbase.

Coinbase allows me to buy Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at ease straight from my laptop or from my phone.

When you purchase Bitcoin with Coinbase, you’ll be able to see the stats and charts wherever you go.

In fact, Coinbase makes it easy 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 Coinbase 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 Coinbase 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/Sell‘.

How to buy crypto

Here you’ll be able to input the amount of money you will be investing in for Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency using the drop down menu.

It’s that simple.

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 Coinbase.

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 earlier this year, Bitcoin is moving up again.

You can now buy more fractions of a Bitcoin today than you could prior to this liquidation.

And 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.

Can I buy other cryptocurrencies with Coinbase?

Yes, you can buy a variety of cryptocurrencies with Coinbase.

Other popular cryptocurrencies include:

  1. Ethereum
  2. Tether
  3. Binance Coin
  4. Terra
  5. Cardano
  6. Solana
  7. Dogecoin
  8. Shiba Inu Coin

When investing long-term in crypto, it is best to strategize your success by diversifying in a few cryptocurrencies first.

Does Bitcoin have real-world value?

Yes, Bitcoin makes it possible to transact money online securely using blockchain technology.

Bitcoin was the first level of blockchain technology, Ethereum the second, and Cardano the third.

Here’s a more through explanation on how Bitcoin works.

How does Bitcoin work?

Most investors are buying Bitcoin as an asset though.

The value of Bitcoin is projected to get relatively high.

Your investment today has a high probability of doubling if not quadrupling this decade.

At least that’s what bulls believe.

But see, cryptocurrency doesn’t seem like it’s leaving.

It’s here to stay and many people are getting in on the crypto asset before it truly is too late.

How to Invest In The Stock Market For Beginners

How To Invest In Stocks For Beginners
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 For Beginners

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, entrepreneurship, market news, 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.

Benefits of investing in the stock market

One of the greatest benefits of investing in the stock market is that you get to hedge against inflation.

Inflation is at an all-time high right now and simply letting your money lose its value isn’t going to create wealth.

The stock market also provides an average return of 7%-8% annually which means those CDs and high yielding savings accounts are a thing of the past.

Even so, you can always create a portfolio bringing in 20%+ annual returns!

In June of 2021, AMC shareholders saw a whopping 3000% return on their investment at its high.

GameStop shareholders saw about half!

Although these trades are much different anomalies then traditional long-term investing, it paints a picture of the power of the market.

Let’s get you started!

#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 you 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
How to invest in stocks for beginners

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
How to invest in the stock market

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 to be a less risky and yield great profits over the long run.

It’s an investors favorite and I personally hold shares in the S&P500.

REITS

Invest in REITS
How to buy 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 for investing
How to invest in the stock market for beginners

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.

how to invest with Vanguard
Franknez.com
How to invest in stocks for beginners

Head over to Vanguard and select ‘Open an account’.

how to open an account with vanguard
How to invest in stocks with Vanguard

Select ‘Start your new account’ to get started.

Vanguard Account

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.

Open a vanguard 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.

Success Tips to Multiply Your Profits When AMC Moons

AMC Moons
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

Welcome to Franknez.com – today’s article is going to walk you through how you can make the best out of your tendies when AMC moons.

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.

Let’s 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 with you my stock and crypto purchases exclusively on Patreon.

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.

Frank Nez

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

invest amc profits to start a business with earned money

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.

Read: An online business can make you a ton of money

#5. Invest your money in yourself

Invest amc profits in yourself

Apes, 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.

5 Easy Ways You Can Earn Leverage Income: Start Now

5 easy ways you can earn leveraged income
Franknez.com
Leverage Income Ideas That Can Make You Rich – how to make money online

Leveraged income is probably one of the best incomes you can have.

You essential create something once and get paid for it multiple times!

Guys, this is how you can end up generating what Dan Lok calls F.U. money.

This type of passive income is what’s going to set you free.

Here are 5 ways you can earn leveraged income.

franknez.com

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!

There are 3 Types of Income

But before I get into them, let’s quickly discuss the different types of income.

There are three main types of income, all of which require different resources in order to move them.

  1. Linear Income – The first is linear income, which is the type of income most people have. It’s where the resource you trade for money is your time. This is your typical 9-5 job, freelance, etc.
  2. Passive Income – Passive income is money generated through investments. This can be income from a high interest CD or savings account. It can also be in the form of dividends paid out from shares of stocks. Passive income may also be generated from rental income if you own property. The resource required for this type of income is capital.
  3. Leveraged Income – And finally, there’s leveraged income. Enough leveraged income and you no longer have to rely on linear income to pay your bills. Leveraged income is earned by creating something once and getting paid continuously for it. You’ll need an audience in order to make the most out of this type of income.
6 levels of income by Dan Lok

If your goal is to become wealthy, you need to get rid of your linear income.

This income is holding you back more than you know.

Why work 8 hours for someone else when you can use 8 hours of your day to work on growing your own business.

How can I escape my 9-5 job?

escape your 9-5

Escaping your 9-5 is going to require a lot of work on your part but it is certainly possible.

You’ll need to pick up a side hustle while you’re employed.

You can also choose to start your own business or follow an art project.

Once you’ve chosen what you’d like to pursue, work on this idea every day after work.

When I learned that Elon Musk and Steve Jobs all had the same hours in a day as I do, I really started using my time wisely.

Figure out how to earn money outside of your job so you’re not 100% dependent on your linear income.

Start setting yourself up for passive income

One way I started was by setting myself up for passive income.

I then downloaded the app Mint by Intuit to track my net worth. It gradually went from $6K to $10K and so on.

It has since reached +$100k.

I began putting money in stocks and in a high yield savings account where my money would do something.

Rather than have it collect dust I figured I’d put it to use.

When I saw returns I let go of fear that was holding me stuck to the 9-5.

If you aren’t investing in the stock market yet bookmark this post on how to invest in the stock market for beginners.

I share my personal stock and crypto purchases over at the Patreon too.

Once you’ve begun to earn some money from passive income look towards creating an asset that can provide you with leverage income.

There are many ways you can do this.

Leverage Income Ideas

Now that you have a better understanding of the 3 main types of income, here are 5 great ways you can start to earn leveraged income.

#1. Publish a Book

If you love to write, publishing a book can be a great way for you to plant a seed for the future.

Publishing a book has also never been easier.

By writing a book or an e-book in my case, you can put out in the market and receive earning from every person who purchases it.

I wrote my e-book “Reaching The $10K Mark: How Perseverance Overrides Adversity” before really knowing that this was a form of leverage income.

Reaching The $10K Mark - Sales

I wanted to write a piece of content that would allow me to connect with my readers. This e-book is about the struggles in sales.

In this story, I break down how I started in my sales career and set goals only to fail countless times over.

But I never gave up.

This inspiring e-book resonates with anyone who knows what it feels like to get pushed ashore by constant hitting waves.

Whether you publish a book or an eBook for that matter, you can earn leveraged income from royalties every time someone purchases your book.

If you love to write, consider joining a community of writers who share your enthusiasm and passion.

Network with them and begin to build a following based on your thoughts, expertise, and creativity.

Where can I publish an e-book?

You can self-publish your own e-book through Amazons KDP program.

Here you can upload your PDF format book and very own cover.

It’s super easy to manage.

You can check how many people have purchased your book and even how many people enrolled in Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited have read your pages.

Reaching the 10k mark franknez.com
Leverage Income Ideas – eBook – how to make money online

You can find “How To Reach The $10K Mark: How Perseverance Overrides Adversity” on Amazon here.

Do I get paid if people read my pages but don’t buy my book?

Yup! Amazon pays its authors when their Amazon Kindle Unlimited members read up to a certain amount of pages.

So even if your book isn’t selling, you still have an opportunity to earn money from members reading your book online.

Writing my own e-book has been an amazing part of my journey. I wanted to provide my readers with real in-depth and honest value.

Reaching The $10K Mark is a book about never giving up.

If you’re in the mood for a short story that will spark a wince of inspiration feel free to check it out.

#2. Monetize YouTube Content

Another way you can earn leverage income is by creating content on YouTube.

YouTube has allowed many people to monetize their videos with advertisement.

Here’s a perfect example of doing the work once and getting paid multiple times for it.

A YouTube video can earn you money for many many years.

That’s because people are always finding new videos to watch.

By placing ads on your videos, you will get paid as long as people continue to view your content no matter how long it’s been since you uploaded it.

How can I put ads on my videos?

The requirements to monetize your YouTube content is that you earn 1,000 subscribers and generate at least 4,000 hours of watch time.

The key to reaching the requirements simply depends on the quality of your videos and how consistently you upload to your channel.

Once your videos are displaying ads you essentially begin to generate an income no matter where you are in the world.

What you’ve done is created a video, and that video now pays you every time someone watches or clicks the ads.

Subscriptions make you earn leveraged income.

This ladies and gentlemen, is the power of leveraged income.

It’s the reason why so many YouTubers are making a living from their videos.

Users are making money from all type of videos including:

  • Gaming
  • Cooking
  • DIY Tutorials
  • Time-Lapses
  • Sports
  • Animation
  • Personal finance
  • Commentary
  • Unboxing and Reviewing
  • Reactions
  • Grooming and Beauty
  • Cars and Tech
  • Business
  • Paranormal

YouTube is a platform I eventually want to personally work more on.

It’s a great place to share content and provide further value using animation or video.

Is it free to create a YouTube channel?

Yes. It’s absolutely free to create your own YouTube channel.

You can upload as many videos as you want, too.

#3. Leverage Blog Views

There are a variety of ways to earn money from blogging with ads being the most popular.

You start to earn leveraged income when your blog posts are displaying ads.

Every post you publish has the potential to make a considerable amount of money depending on how big your audience is.

Just like publishing a book, you only have to write a blog post once for it to rank and reach a massive audience.

Now, this is not saying you don’t have to publish consistently.

If that were the case, you wouldn’t even be eligible to monetize in the first place.

Blogging is on this list due to the possibility of writing a post and earning money for only writing on that topic once.

Blogging ideas for 2021

  • Travel
  • Food & recipe
  • Entertainment & news
  • Automotive
  • Health & well being
  • Fashion & makeup
  • Technology
  • Finance & business
  • Product reviews
  • Paranormal / metaphysical

People are blogging about just anything.

If you love to write then blogging can be a great way platform for you to provide value.

If you’re an expert in an area or simply have a lot of knowledge about a specific thing then blogging might be a great way for you to earn leveraged income.

Reasons why you need to start blogging today

I personally believe everyone should start their own blog.

A blog can provide you with a lifestyle like no other. 

Here’s a small list of key reasons why more people should start today:

  1. You have some sort of skill or expertise to share with the world
  2. Your knowledge can answer people’s questions and help them grow
  3. You can monetize your blog with ads and get paid passively every month
  4. Blogging allows you to express your thoughts and opinions
  5. Get paid on the move, while you travel, and while you sleep

How can I place ads on my blog to begin earning leveraged income?

You can place ads on your blog through Google AdSense.

It personally took me about a month of blogging to get my blog approved and start displaying ads.

Google AdSense leverage income with ads
Leverage Income Ideas – Monetize Blog – ways to make money online

I do have to say though, Google AdSense rejected my blog about 6 times!

Don’t let this discourage you.

Google AdSense lets you know what you have to work on in order to get approved.

You might not even get rejected as many times as I was!

How much money can my blog earn with Google AdSense?

Like YouTube, who is also powered by Google AdSense, earnings highly depend on the traffic you bring to your content.

leverage income with blog views
how to make money online blogging

To put things into perspective, some of my posts are generating a few bucks while others are generating over $100 per week.

Good thing Franknez.com has posts on how to help you improve your blog and gain traffic; just search ‘blog’ in the search bar.

You can actually see your potential annual revenue on Google AdSense home page.

How often does Google AdSense pay you?

You will need to reach $100 in ad revenue to qualify for your payout.

Once you do reach your minimum, you will be paid the following month.

So if you earn $400 in one month, those earning will be direct deposited one month after.

Can I choose how many ads are displayed?

Yup!

Google AdSense has a control where you can manage whether a few ads are displayed on your blog or whether you want a lot to show.

I personally have a balanced display so that my readers can still enjoy my content.

#4. Leverage Artistic Skills

Ever wonder why Kanye West makes more money than the president of the United States?

Or maybe why athletes make significantly more money than a doctor?

That’s because the president of the United States and doctors all earn linear income.

Presidents and doctors trade their time for money while artists and athletes earn leveraged income through royalties from their craft.

Earn Leveraged Income With Music and Art
Leverage Income Ideas – easy ways to make money – how to make money online

Songs are a massive way artists and musicians can use leverage.

They do this through the number of followers and fans they’ve accumulated.

One song can earn an artist hundreds if not thousands of dollars from just streams. Independent artists can do this too.

Can independent artists make money from streams as well?

Yes.

All independent artists need is to upload their music through a music distributer.

A music distributor will then take care of putting your content out on Spotify, Apple Music, iHeartRadio, Tidal, and other major platforms.

How can I get my music on all major platforms?

DistroKid leverage income

Independent artists can use DistroKid.

DistroKid is the easiest way for artists and musicians to get streamed on the biggest music platforms and getting your music on Spotify and Apple Music.

Once your music is distributed throughout Spotify and Apple Music, you will start getting paid as soon as people begin listening to your music.

If you’ve been uploading you tunes to SoundCloud, Reverbnation, or YouTube, this is the next step.

You’re already getting plays on those platforms – now start getting paid for them though DistroKid.

How much does it cost to distribute my music?

Distributing your music with DistroKid only costs $19.99/year.

This subscription fee allows you to upload unlimited singles and albums throughout the year.

Other competitors charge you per song or album.

Luckily, our readers save 7% when they sign up using our affiliate link here.

Music is the perfect leverage income tool

Because music can be played over and over, this makes it the perfect leverage income tool.

If you find yourself getting playlisted in large curated playlists, you can earn hundred to thousands of dollars with just one track!

Now imagine you put out a demo or an entire album.. yup. That’s the power of leverage income.

#5. Automate a Product / Service

You can create a product or service that people can continuously download and buy and earn leveraged income that way.

Here’s a perfect example:

Andrei Jikh, a personal finance youtuber, created a spreadsheet that tracks the performance and changes of your stocks in the market.

He created this product once and is now available for anyone to buy and download on his Patreon.

This is just one of many great ways to earn leveraged income through the use of a product or service.

You can also create and sell exclusive courses on your website or blog.

Entrepreneurs are selling courses on marketing, social media, content creating, sales, and wealth building.

Why SPY Stock is The Perfect Retirement Vehicle

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

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 $439.

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?

SPY S&P – Spy Stock

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% 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 its shareholders for holding the stock.

It’s a little lower now than 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.
