Market news and updates: CEO confirms AMC received 6 million shares from National CineMedia for free.

Adam Aron announced on Twitter AMC had received free shares of National CineMedia.

Barrons, a news site owned by News Corp. falsely claimed AMC purchased the stock of a failing company.

Shares rose for both AMC and NCMI stock on Wednesday.

The CEO stated the shares came to AMC because they’ve grown their circuit by continuously adding theatres last year.

AMC owns approximately 6 million shares of National CineMedia now.

National CineMedia is an American cinema advertising company.

NCM displays ads to U.S. consumers in movie theaters, online and through mobile technology.

The advertising industry is a huge industry.

Perhaps AMC begins to create a new revenue stream through the use of ads in their cinemas.

The movie theatre chain had incredible Q1 earnings results this year and also beat every quarter in 2021.

The company also acquired a 22% stake in Hycroft Mining (HYMC) in March as well as several movie theatres not only last year but this year too.

AMC Perfectly Popcorn brand is on schedule to sell across grocery stores, malls, and other retail stores by the end of 2022.

Adam Aron teased shareholders could see a stock dividend by the end of 2023.

AMC stock is currently on a downtrend as the SPY pulls the entire market with it despite positive news and fundamental improvements.

Shareholders continue to buy and hold the stock as they look to squeeze shorts from their positions this year.

The battle in the market continues.

The Tiger Cubs Are on The Brink of Collapsing

Tiger Cubs Hedge Fund
Market News: Tiger Cubs face disturbing losses as tech stocks fall

(Bloomberg) Hedge fund managers known as Tiger Cubs are facing serious carnage in the market.

The alliance consists of Tiger Global Management, Lone Pine Capital, Coatue Management, Maverick Capital, Viking Global Investors and D1 Capital 

Billions were made in tech stocks, but gains have now evaporated.

Tech stocks have fallen the first quarter of 2022 and have bled into the second quarter this year.

Is it possible the Tiger Cubs are the next hedge fund managers to join Melvin Capital’s grand exit?

Let’s discuss it.

NASDAQ plummets in 2022

The tech-heavy NASDAQ 100 has fallen more than 29% this year.

It’s down more than 11% from the S&P 500 (down 18.47% YTD).

According to Bloomberg, majority of the Tiger Cubs stock picks are in tech stocks.

Tiger Global exited 83 positions depicted in the chart below and entered only 2 new positions.

The hedge fund sank 34% the first quarter of 2022.

Tiger Cubs positions

Coatue Management is another hedge fund who has been struggling to keep its doors open this year.

Last year investors demanded to pull out $250 million from the hedge fund but Coatue was unable to meet demands.

Coatue said the money they could not deliver to their clients was being held in private companies, making it difficult to liquidate.

Today we see Coatue Management exited 35 stocks and only entered 12 so far.

The rest of the cubs aren’t doing so well with everyone exiting more positions than entering them.

Tiger Cubs cut their losses

Below you’ll find a chart showing the worst-performing stocks widely held by the Tiger Cubs.

Big name companies include Carvana, DoorDash, Netflix, and Shopify to name a few.

Tiger Cubs Losses
Source – Bloomberg

The Tiger Cubs have been known for piling into the same or similar stocks since they all had the same mentor.

These hedge funds are facing significant losses despite being in it together.

Melvin Capital saw a 50% loss in 2021 and another 20.6% during the first quarter of 2022 before throwing in the towel.

The hedge fund was destroyed by retail investors when it decided to bet against game retailer GameStop and other ‘meme stocks’.

Ken Griffin defended Gabe Plotkin’s Melvin Capital in a Bloomberg exclusive attacking retail investors.

The Citadel founders said retail investors wiped out teacher’s pension plans by bankrupting Melvin Capital.

And the retail community is biting back, speaking the truth.

CALPERS, the largest pension fund in America loaded up on AMC and GameStop and sold Netflix, though.

Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater sold Tesla this Q1 and bought AMC stock for the first time and increased their stake in GameStop.

These are two examples where conventional wisdom doesn’t always make sense (i.e., investing in fundamental tech stocks).

And we can see hedge funds who do follow this ‘conventional wisdom’ are suffering because of it.

Which hedge fund will be next to fall?

Some of you said on Twitter Tiger Global could be the next hedge fund to fall.

Coatue Management has been in deep waters too.

I’m curious to know what you think about where hedge funds are currently headed.

Ken Griffin Attacks: “Pension Plans Destroyed by Retail Investors”

Ken Griffin on Retail Investors
Market News: Ken Griffin on retail investors

Ken Griffin accused the retail community of destroying teacher’s pension plans by taking down Gabe Plotkin’s Melvin Capital.

Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that was short on ‘meme stocks’ holding a large position in GameStop.

The company is scheduled to shut down in June after it had suffered a 50% loss in 2021, and an additional 20.6% in the first quarter of 2022.

Sources say Melvin Capital has already begun to liquidate its positions to pay back investors in cash.

In this Bloomberg exclusive, Ken Griffin plays a role of the victim, defending Mr. Plotkin and the hedge fund whose mission it was to bankrupt GameStop.

Ken Griffin’s Citadel is also short on AMC Entertainment – the hedge fund lost billions last year betting against retail.

Let’s discuss it.

CNBC mourns the loss of Melvin Capital

CNBC says Melvin was one of the biggest victims from the meme stock frenzy last year due to its large short position in GameStop.

They say Citadel and Point72 had to provide Melvin Capital with a lifeline to stay above the water.

The hedge funds combined provided Gabe Plotkin with $2.75 billion in capital last year.

However, as things went south quick for Melvin, both hedge funds demanded the capital back.

Something Ken Griffin and his affiliates fail to mention.

Mainstream media has also danced around the fact that hedge funds planned to wipe American companies by overleveraging their short positions during the pandemic.

Success in doing so would delist AMC, GameStop, and other meme stocks from the stock market.

Betting against companies with intention to bankrupt them to the ground is no charity work.

It’s un-American and a nefarious practice that has dragged out for too long.

Ken Griffin blames retail investors

In the video below, Ken Griffin gives his thoughts on retail investors and the entire ‘meme stock’ phenomena.

Ken Griffin takes a jab at the retail community saying retail investors who aimed to bankrupt Melvin Capital also wiped-out pension funds from teachers.

But Ken, retail investors don’t get up in the morning and think to themselves, “let’s wipe out a multi-billion-dollar hedge fund.”

Melvin Capital lost because he went against retail – the first time in history the people fight back corruption in the stock market, and win.

Ken Griffin lost billions shorting AMC stock, the retail community is currently his biggest adversary.

AMC shareholders continue to buy and hold the stock until short sellers exit their positions, which will result in a short squeeze.

Today’s retail investors are armed with education, they understand what they hold and what it’s doing to hedge funds.

While Ken Griffin and affiliates might be pumping a narrative as victims, high profiles such as Elon Musk, Jon Stewart, and Ryan Cohen have stood up against short sellers.

For the first time in history, Wall Street is getting their a** kicked, and these hedge fund managers certainly do not like that.

Hedge funds should prepare for bigger losses

Institutions are about to lose a massive amount of collateral due to executive order 14032 in early June.

This presidential order is prohibiting Chinese securities to be used as collateral starting June 2nd, 2022.

It was responsible for initiating margin calls when AMC Entertainment stock rose to $20 per share in January, and $72 per share in June of last year.

With liquidity drying up in global markets, it’s going to be quite difficult for hedge funds to keep up with margin requirements on heavily shorted ‘meme stocks’.

Massive selloffs in the market have proved just how distressed financial institutions are.

We’re seeing for the first-time hedge funds begin to shut down as they take the lead in liquidity burn.

Retail investors have been the majority of buyers in today’s markets according to Bank of America.

Hedge funds are headed towards a larger train-wreck of disaster they cannot get off of.

As they continue to tank the markets, margin requirements go up thanks to DTCC B16845-22.

Hedge funds have lost control.

But I’m curious to know what you think.

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

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?
AMC Short Squeeze – AMC Entertainment 2022 – AMC Stock Price – AH9 Stock – AMC Stock Squeeze

Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

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

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

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

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

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

franknez.com

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

Let’s dive right into it!

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

Mainstream media wants retail to lose

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

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

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

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

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

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

AMC Short Interest Data (2022)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

AMC’s short interest is currently at 21.99%.

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

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

A 21% short interest is equivalent to approximately 159.32 million shares on loan (shares that have been borrowed and have not yet been closed).

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

New short positions have brought AMC’s short interest up to nearly 20% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

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

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

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

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

Sitting at 20% short interest, it’s more than enough to get the price up well into the high hundreds of dollars per share.

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

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

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

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

Who is AMC stock for?

Popcorn

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

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

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

Reasons why AMC wont squeeze in 2022..

I’ve always been transparent with the community.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The community has always been a beacon for change.

Apes will need to voice market concerns to elevate awareness.

Market regulation in 2022

Market regulation 2022 SEC

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

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

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

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

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

The fight for a fair market continues in 2022.

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

It’s about freedom.

BREAKING: Executive Order 14032 Could Be a Big Deal for AMC Stock

Hedge Fund Melvin Capital Is Shutting Down End of June

Hedge Fund Melvin Capital is Shutting Down End of June
GameStop short seller Melvin Capital is closing its doors this summer

Hedge fund Melvin Capital, notoriously known by the retail community for betting against GameStop is now closing its doors.

2022 marks the second year in a row the short seller underperforms.

Melvin Capital lost a staggering 20.6% the first quarter this year alone.

In 2021, they took a heavier hit with 50% in losses.

Now the hedge fund tells CNBC they will be shutting down by the end of June and starting a new company.

The apes were right

In March, I published a tweet asking the community whether Melvin Capital would be the next hedge fund to default.

We all saw this coming, but 90% of you voted YES.

Forward a month later and now the hedge fund is announcing it is closing this summer.

Earlier in March we saw another notorious hedge fund known for shorting GameStop pull $2 billion from Gabe Plotkin’s Melvin Capital.

That hedge fund was Citadel.

Citadel also lost billions last year shorting so called ‘meme stocks’, so it comes as no surprise as to why they pulled out from Gabe Plotkin’s Melvin Capital.

Ken Griffin’s Citadel also imposed tight restrictions on its clients leading into the new year.

Customers were given an ultimatum to either stay with the firm otherwise coming back would prove to be difficult.

Steve Cohen’s Point72 redeemed $750 million from Melvin Capital around the same time.

Ken Griffin received a $1.2 billion lifeline from partners Sequoia and Paradigm in January of this year.

This was the first time Citadel had ever received private funding.

Don’t bet against the apes

Mainstream media doesn’t give retail investors enough credit for shedding light on market injustices.

The ‘ape’ community has grown since last year as retail investors discover the short interest data that points towards a bigger AMC runup than that of January and May of last year.

In this video I go over patterns that are similar to those from last year’s runup and what we should keep a close eye out on.

The apes were right about naked shorting, dark pools, and the dangers of betting against retail.

Now hedge funds are dealing with the consequences of betting against the people.

Majority of the community continues to buy and hold ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC and GameStop in efforts to create a massive short squeeze.

Retail has said it many times, a short squeeze is inevitable.

While the SEC might be proposing rules that could wash naked short selling, yet avoid them in the future, it would take years to enforce if passed.

Will hedge funds survive?

Hedge funds are currently facing deep scrutiny from both retail investors and regulators.

The DOJ is taking Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, and numerous other hedge funds to court.

Citadel is one of the short sellers currently being investigated by the Department of Justice according to a Bloomberg report.

The SEC and DOJ are looking into the following:

  • Communication between banks and hedge funds
  • Proof of ‘Bear Raids’
  • Spoofing
  • And several other market manipulation tactics

Hedge fund Muddy Waters was already raided by the FBI earlier this year for flooding the market with fake orders to drive stock prices down.

Melvin Capital is only one of many hedge funds that has closed down in the past year due to overleveraged short selling, and bad bets.

AMC’s Shares on Loan Are at An All-Time High

AMC's shares on loan
Market News: AMC’s shares on loan reach 157.87 million

AMC’s shares on loan have massively increased since its grand runup to $72 per share last year in June.

The movie theatre chain continues to be quite the attraction for retail investors as it is still heavily shorted.

The pandemic no longer threatens AMC Entertainment, and the company has improved drastically when it comes to fundamentals.

However, short sellers did not expect this to happen.

And now they’re stuck with millions of shares on loan that eventually have to be returned.

The results?

A short squeeze.

Let’s discuss it.

AMC’ shares on loan reach 157.87 million

AMC shares on loan - AMC short interest
AMC shares on loan – AMC short interest

The shares on loan of a stock are the number of shares that have been borrowed and have yet to be returned.

We see this data when looking the short interest data of a ticker symbol to determine how much of the float is being shorted.

So, what does this mean?

AMC’s shares on loan essentially looks like debt to short sellers because they eventually have to return these shares back to the lender.

These shares amount to approximately 21.88% short interest (updated daily on the blog).

This is a very high short interest percentage – something mainstream media will not talk to investors about.

AMC’s short high short interest is what allowed it to reach $20 per share in January and $72 per share in June of last year.

Hedge funds lost billions, which is why mainstream media has focused on scaring retail investors out of their money by pumping out ‘DO NOT BUY AMC’ content.

Nothing has changed this year except AMC’s shares on loan and short interest keeps climbing.

AMC’s short interest was only at 20% when it surged to $72 – it’s now close to 22%.

Is an AMC short squeeze on the horizon?

In recent articles I’ve said there is no better time to close short positions than today due to the bear rallies we’ve been having in the market.

The market has reached all-time lows providing short sellers with an incentive to close now before the market begins trending upwards again.

Unfortunately, new short sellers have jumped in on the hate bandwagon and are exposing themselves to very high risk.

Hedge funds have closed in the past year due to overleveraging their short positions in the market.

These are institutions who have lost billions of dollars and created major distress for real clients.

Individual short sellers should understand what they’re going up against when facing retail demand.

The fact is AMC Entertainment has the perfect short squeeze setup.

One can view short sellers as a nasty blackhead that needs to come out.

It’s there, it just has to get squeezed out.

Gross.

But you get the point.

AMC’s squeeze potential is big, it’s just a matter of when will it happen.

It’s very possible

If you’re an avid reader of my content, then you know all about executive order 14032.

Now, I don’t want to sound like a broken record player, but this could be a very big deal for AMC stock.

We saw this executive order play a very important role for AMC last year when it resulted in its January and May/June price runups.

The order is to go in effect on June 2nd, 2022.

And while the community doesn’t like to call out dates, expect something in June anyway.

Only you can control your emotions.

Optimistically, community members understand that whether executive order 14032 creates a massive impact or not, AMC is still a short squeeze play.

I’m interested to know what you think.

AMC Squeezing in June
Will AMC be squeezing in June?

The probability of AMC squeezing has always been there, and it’s always been relatively high for the most part.

But what’s the probability of AMC squeezing in June?

After all, with the market at an all-time low, it makes you think why wouldn’t shorts close positions now, right?

But most importantly, executive order 14032 is going into effect this June.

And this catalyst could very well just be AMC’s highest probability of squeezing.

Let’s discuss it.

The markets are at an all-time low

Will AMC be squeezing next month?
Will AMC be squeezing next month?

More market value has been lost today than in the Dot-Com crash.

The Dot-Com crash saw a loss of $4.6 trillion.

Today, the NASDAQ’s decline has been a whopping $7.6 trillion.

To put things into perspective, the Global Financial Crisis lost $2.3 trillion, and the Covid-19 selloff lost $4.4 trillion in value.

Hedge funds have overleveraged their positions in heavily shorted stock such as AMC and GameStop.

Retail investors caused Citadel and other short sellers to lose billions last year due to the runups.

Both AMC and GameStop have high short interest above 21% each and an all-time high number of shares on loan that need to be returned.

So, short sellers are in a tough position, especially those with overleveraged positions.

This bear market could provide short sellers with an incentive to close large short positions before the market begins to reverse.

The SPY (S&P 500) has touched $400 per share several times in the last 5-day trading period.

While it has traded below $400, it’s important to note the markets have to bottom out at some point.

The question is, is this the bottom?

And if it is, will short sellers take this opportunity to close out positions in AMC and GameStop?

Executive order 14032 is right around the corner

If you haven’t heard of executive order 14032 yet, you’re missing some incredible information here.

This order was previously responsible for prohibiting institutions from using Chinese securities as collateral on January 27th, and May 27th of 2021.

These are the dates before AMC began to run up to $20 per share in late January, and when it began to run up to $72 per share at the end of May, early June.

Institutions were given their collateral back for 365 days on June 2nd, 2021.

Since then, AMC and the entire markets have gone down.

This grace period will be over on June 2nd of 2022, where institutions will no longer be able to use these Chinese securities as collateral, resulting in margin calls.

The difference this time, however, is that the number of Chinese securities affected has increased from 30 companies to 70+ companies.

Margin calls could be significantly larger than the previous two times based on portfolio holdings.

Incredibly, both AMC and GameStop short sellers are more in debt now than they were in January and June of last year.

The amount of FTDs and shares on loan have snowballed to new heights for over a year now.

Does this increase the probability of AMC squeezing in June?

is AMC squeezing in June?
Is AMC Squeezing in June? Is AMC squeezing next month?

Given the current market circumstances and executive order 14032 going into effect soon, June could prove to be a highly important time for AMC shareholders.

Is an AMC short squeeze guaranteed in June?

No, nothing is every truly guaranteed in the markets.

But is the probability high?

Absolutely.

I’ve mentioned this in previous articles and videos before, AMC is a short squeeze play whether this catalyst triggers a short squeeze or not.

AMC’s short interest data pointed towards a runup in January and May/June of last year – and the data says it’s not done running.

Coincidentally, Chinese collateral was removed during these two runups, and now it’s happening again.

And while today’s share price might discourage investors, I find it’s more intriguing to look at the data rather than at the share price.

It’ll change your perspective.

What do you think?

Is AMC going to squeeze soon?

Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater Just Bought AMC Stock and Sold Tesla

BREAKING: Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater buys AMC stock for the first time; sells Tesla

Another institution has bought AMC stock and sold another high-profile stock.

Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater fund just bought AMC and GameStop and sold Tesla shares.

I was watching the multi-billionaire talk about the economy just yesterday with Tom Bilyeu.

Bridgewater wasn’t the only institution that increased their stake in AMC stock this first quarter.

The largest pension fund in America (CALPERS) purchased an additional 155,992 shares by the end of Q1 this year, totaling the number of AMC shares owned to 775,392 shares.

It seems institutions are bulking up on AMC shares right before executive order 14032 goes into effect.

Things are getting very interesting.

Let’s discuss it.

Bridgewater buys AMC stock for the first time

Bridgewater disclosed an AMC stake for the first time in its latest portfolio update.

Dalio and his team bought about 27,100 shares of the cinema chain, which were worth $667,000 at the end of March.

The fund disclosed around 4,100 GameStop shares worth $689,000 as of March 31.

The last time it listed GME stock in its portfolio was more than three years ago, at the end of 2018, according to Market Insiders.

Bridgewater owned about 25,500 Tesla shares worth $27 million at the end of December, and held the stock in all four quarters of 2021 but cashed out its Tesla stock the first quarter this year.

Ray Dalio is an incredibly smart person.

Why an institution like Bridgewater is bulking up on AMC and GameStop shares has to mean something.

The ‘ape’ community predicted the big price runups that happened in AMC last January and May/June and are expecting a bigger runup this year.

Are financial institutions catching up?

Executive order 14302 goes into effect soon

Executive order 14302 is going to prohibit financial institutions from using Chinese securities as collateral on June 2nd, 2022.

The last time Chinese collateral was prohibited on January 27th, and May 27th of 2021, AMC stock surged.

Is this why institutions such as CALPERS and Bridgewater are buying AMC stock?

And while CALPERS did not buy GME stock this first quarter, it did buy 70,600 shares of GameStop during the last quarter of 2021.

I wonder what Wall Street analysts have to say about this.

After all, they made it their life’s mission to derail investors from buying these ‘meme stocks’.

Something tells me ‘dumb money’ might not have been so dumb after all.

But I’m curious to know what you think.

Are institutions on board with the data that says AMC and GameStop have massive potential for a short squeeze?

Will AMC Stock Go Up? [2022 Deep Dive]

Will AMC stock go up?
Will Ah9 stock surge again?

AMC has been trending downwards since its rise up to $72 per share and now retail investors are wondering, will AMC stock go up?

In a recent article I break down 3 BIG factors that have influenced AMC’s downward trajectory in the past few months.

Although AMC’s share price has been plummeting, the demand for the stock has not.

This key point is going to play a big role in what happens to AMC stock after this bear market is over.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to lay a few key points you should take into consideration if you’re holding AMC stock or thinking of buying it.

Let’s get started!

AMC stock had an incredible year in 2021.

The stock reached an all-time high of $72 per share with only 21% short interest at the time.

Once the share price began to come down, AMC’s short interest had come down to 14%.

Well, AMC’s short interest is back up to 20% again meaning short sellers have not learned their lesson.

Another key point I’m going to discuss below.

Can AMC’s share price still surge?

Can AMC's share price still go up?

As we start the new year, AMC’s average daily volume is incredibly high.

AMC has an average volume of almost 43 million with many days surpassing this amount.

It’s more than 15 times that of GameStop’s current volume.

So why isn’t AMC’s massive demand reflecting in the share price?

That’s the question the ‘ape community’ has been asking regulators all year 2021.

Too many eyes are on regulators right now and at some point, some suppression inflicted by hedge funds will have to subside.

And aside from Omicron and Covid news affecting the entire market, AMC’s massive volume will eventually push the stock price up during a correction.

What does this mean for retail investors?

If you’re looking to get in on AMC for a short squeeze, know the risks, but understand that once this stock takes off you will not be able to buy it at these prices again.

Deflating the short interest

AMC Short Interest

Deflating AMC’s short interest like we saw back in January and June means AMC stock will go up significantly higher from its current share price.

Small short covering allowed AMC to reach $72 per share back in June of 2021.

So why can AMC stock still skyrocket?

Despite the heavy buying volume from retail, AMC still has more than enough short interest percentage to squeeze shorts from their positions.

2022 is only the sequel to 2021’s runup.

The reason mainstream media doesn’t want you to know this is because of their ties to hedge funds and private financial institutions.

These institutions are ‘short’ on AMC and GameStop, meaning they’re betting against them.

Pushing propaganda that will feed their narrative is the safest way for hedge funds to derail retail from further buying the stock that could cause them to default.

Hedge funds such as Melvin Capital, Anchorage Capital, Mudrick, & Archegos are out of the game.

Citadel Securities on the other hand continues to be short on AMC stock and seems to be having a hard time weathering this retail storm.

This is why mainstream media will not touch topic on the short interest data that could squeeze shorts from their positions.

AMC Entertainment fundamentals

AMC Entertainment fundamentals

A short squeeze play has nothing to do with AMC Entertainment’s fundamentals.

The reason being is that retail goes based off of how much shorting there is in the company stock.

Buying the stock en masse (big volume) will cause AMC stock to go up, forcing shorts to close their positions and buy back their shares; triggering a short squeeze.

A short squeeze play does not depend on the performance of the company as a business.

AMC’s fundamentals are not the greatest, the company does have a lot of debt.

However, something mainstream media is not discussing is just how much their debt has gone down each quarter since 2021.

AMC Entertainment’s fundamentals are a discussion I will be touching topic on another blog post very soon so be sure to join the newsletter.

And although AMC still has quite aways to clear their debt, the company has become one of the first to lead crypto innovation and accept payment in cryptocurrencies.

Tesla has now followed by accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment on their merchandise too.

Debt is the only thing holding AMC Entertainment from being a fundamental buy in the eyes of most in the industry.

AMC Entertainment partnerships

Partnerships

AMC partnered with Chance the Rapper last year for his concert movie release.

CEO Adam Aron announced that they would be working on partnering up with industry leaders for licensing agreements that would allow AMC to provide more of these experiences to their audiences around the world.

Another successful showing was the UFC fight they held in theatres.

The CEO also expressed his optimism surrounding showing highly anticipated sports events in theatres, granted licensing of course.

Retail investors have been specifically waiting for an AMC-GameStop partnership.

A topic Adam Aron teased could be in the works at some point.

AMC theatres released “GameStop: Rise of the Players” on January 28th, earlier this year.

One thing you cannot deny is the community strength and company relationship to its shareholders.

It’s never been seen before.

So, will AMC stock go up again?

franknez.com

Based on trader sentiment, community sentiment, and continuous innovation from the company, AMC stock will surge again.

This bear market won’t last forever.

And although the entire market is rather shaky at the moment, there will be a correction.

Hedge funds might have leverage to short the stock, but the people aren’t leaving.

AMC Entertainment will have to focus on growth and revenue if they are to get out of debt in the future.
