5 Advantages Retail Investors Holding AMC Stock Have Over Hedge Funds

AMC stock retail investors
Advantages retail investors holding AMC stock have over hedge funds

Community, today I want to remind you why you’re winning. We’ve been holding AMC stock for many months now. Us seasoned apes have seen some gains at this point. New retail investors buying the stock, don’t get overwhelmed if you’re not there yet because your time is closer than you think.

If you’re feeling uncertain at some point just come back to this article. Here are 5 advantages us retail investors holding AMC stock have over hedge funds.

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!

#1. Holding AMC stock costs us nothing

You hear it over and over and over again community. Hodling doesn’t cost us a thing. Hedge funds on the other hand are paying a fee to continuously short AMC stock.

Hedge funds have lost billions from apes simply not cashing in profits yet. They can’t keep playing this game forever, our community is a big threat to their customers and business as a whole.

Whether you have gains or not on paper, know that you holding a position in AMC is costing the bad guys money. Remember, patience is a virtue. We can hold at ease while they hold in stress.

#2. Apes own majority of AMC’s float

The combined percentage of whales and apes that own AMC’s float is 80% according to Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment. I’ve heard Trey mention the retail investor percentage is about 60%.

Ladies and gentlemen, we literally own the company. Just to put things into perspective, Tesla has about 33% retail investors while Apple has approximately 40%.

Whales, or institutions, will be selling on the way up. We’ve seen this happen before. I bring this up because it means that at some point we will own more of the company. This is significant because it allows us to be in control of when we want to sell stock and what price we’d like to sell the stock.

What you hold is more valuable than you know. By the time hedge funds and short sellers have to cover their position, it’s going to be very expensive for them. We hold the supply, their request for the stock back is the demand. When demand increases the price also increases.

#3. We’re investing our money, not other people’s money

This is big psychologically speaking. As retail investors we have more sentimental value attached to the dollar that’s being invested. We will hold because we simply have no other option.

Our families depend on it and there’s absolutely no way we will ever cut our losses or cash in anything other than life changing profits. We’ve locked ourselves in on this game and have put away the key until the time is right.

Hedge funds on the other hand are burning their clients money. It’s not theirs so they don’t care. They’ve borrowed money from every crevice that will lend it to them but continue to severely take losses. If hedge funds were playing with their money, they would have closed their positions months ago.

And although leveraging other peoples money has played in their favor short term, the gash it’s going to leave long term is monumental.

#4. The AMC community is getting loud

Our community is being heard now by the media. We now have Melissa Lee from CNBC and Charles Payne from FOX Business questioning the SEC regarding the illicit activity of naked shorting.

When a community is loud enough change begins to slowly happen. We are more powerful than you think. Unification of the people is one thing governments fear the most. At some point the people who denied the manipulation in the market, like Charles Payne did many years back, will be joining us.

This revolution will be one of those things where it simply can’t be swept under the rug anymore. These are different times.

There’s been headlines about the SEC allegedly fining hedge funds for naked shorting. Not much information has been released regarding this. However, if the SEC doesn’t do their job then our community will be exposing them as well.

Leadership in the community

Apes in the community are also using the platforms we have as a means to help fight FUD and the manipulation. We fight the lies with the truth and educate our fellow members any way we can. Unlike hedge funds who have superiors, we have multiple leaders in our community.

#5. We’ve saved the entire movie industry

Have you ever stepped back and thought about this? If you hold AMC stock you literally helped save the entire movie industry along with the oldest movie theater business in history.

Our community did that, you did that. That is how powerful we are united. The fact of the matter is that there’s a future, a blimp in time where shorts get squeezed out of their positions. If the community can save an entire movie industry from going bankrupt, then the community can certainly squeeze the culprits who’s goal was to drive AMC Entertainment into extinction, out of their positions.

These short sellers have a backwards way of thinking. We should be supporting our businesses worldwide, not betting on them to shut down. Their way is not the way and for that reason they will continue to suffer extreme losses.

They said this is what we’re doing and we said no, this is what’s going to happen. It’s time for change. The biggest transfer of wealth is about to take place and it’s going to be marked in history.

And lastly . . .

Remember your why. Write down your goals and affirmations. Practice visualization because your mind and thoughts are that powerful. You become what you think about the most.

Red days, green days it’s all part of the process. Red days are needed just as much as the green days are. Any red days we experience become buying opportunities and help us stair step the way up.

Short sellers will continue to borrow shares to drive the price down. This is only going to make this squeeze that much BIGGER. The only reason hedge funds continue to short the stock is because they’ve run out of options. They’re desperate and it’s all they can do. Their defeat is already written.

Is It Too Late To Get In On AMC Stock?

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?
Is it too late to buy AMC Entertainment stock?

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

If you’ve been following the stock market news you’ve probably heard of all the hype surrounding AMC stock and GME (GameStop).

It wasn’t long before traders flocked over to AMC after the massive gains GameStop yielded due to the high percentage of shorting within the stocks.

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

Well, investors over at r/wallstreetbets found that by purchasing stocks at low price in heavy volumes it would drive a short squeeze. A short squeeze occurs when a stock jumps sharply higher, forcing short sellers to buy higher, causing them to lose money. Lots of it.

trending investing topics

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!

Will we see a squeeze with AMC?

AMC Entertainment short Squeeze

There are numerous news that lead traders and investors alike to predict an upcoming short squeeze like we saw with GME (Gamestop).

  • CEO of AMC announces AMC is no longer going bankrupt (via. Los Angeles Times)
  • Vanguard, Wells Fargo, BMO Harris, BlackRock, Fidelity and many more institutions are buying AMC stock while it’s low (via. CNN Business)
  • AMC is currently the most shorted stock (via. MarketWatch) Unfortunately MarketWatch has hidden AMC from their list. Retail investors suspect foul play.
  • AMC is also currently one of the most held stocks surpassing Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA) (via. Nasdaq)
  • More publicity and awareness has average people investing in AMC which is driving volume for a potential squeeze

Big institutions keep buying AMC stock

We’re seeing huge institutions are investing in AMC stock while it’s affordable. Because it’s affordable we’re also seeing average people invest in this stock.

As long as the stock is being held, though lows and through highs, a squeeze like we saw with GME (GameStop) is certainly possible.

AMC stock closed at $55.18 on June 16th. The stock has been green for quite some days now and is more bullish than ever. However, shorts continue to short ladder the stock causing some consolidation. AMC wants to keep climbing.

Short-laddering occurs when short investors buy back their shares at a low price, driving down (or leveling the stock) gains. These are the attacks we’ve been seeing whenever AMC begins to see gains, all year.

As long as AMC shareholders continue to hold and buy the dip, short investors are at a disadvantage.

Great news for AMC Entertainment

Other news that can further drive the share price of AMC stock is the announcement that most AMC theaters have now begun to open up.

BREAKING: AMC’s short borrow fee as of 6/16 is 1.68%, via. Fintel.

The fee is going up although it had recently come down.

What is a short borrow fee?

AMC short borrow fee
Franknez.com

The short borrow fee is the interest shorts pay for borrowing shares of AMC stock.

This means shorts are losing money every day by not closing their positions. If we want to squeeze shorts from their positions we’ll need to see this short borrow fee gradually increase.

Why the short borrow fee rate matters

It costs shorts interest to hold while it costs the retail investor absolutely nothing to hold.

Shorts are losing money every day they hold because of this interest fee for borrowing the stock.

For some reason shorts still think AMC Entertainment can go bankrupt, although they have enough money to continue doing business.. I know, I don’t understand this either.

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 continue to pay interest for borrowing.

How high can AMC stock go up to?

AMC to the moon

Because we’ve seen a lot of suppression in the market due to short-ladder attacks, many traders are anticipating AMC stock can get as high if not higher than GME (GameStop).

This is actually quite logical given that we’re seeing more and more people and institutions alike purchase AMC stock and hold their positions.

There’s a notion that all these suppressed gains will result in a massive short squeeze during the Summer. Again, this is all speculation but all signs are pointing towards big gains.

So, is it too late to purchase AMC stock?

Not at all. In fact, if you’re looking to get into the AMC train now is the perfect time to do so.

The price after a short squeeze eventually fall back down and level out, but this will take time. With AMC stock treading below $100, now could be the perfect time to buy. Just don’t wait too long because we hear it’s going to the moon.

AMC’s short borrow fee keeps going up, hedge funds continue to short it, volume is increasing; it’s the perfect storm for a short squeeze.

Things to expect in the market with AMC

  • Volatility followed with an upward trend in price action
  • Short-ladder attacks
  • Headlines advising you to trade in something else
  • Hedge funds to lose a lot of money
  • More retail investors buying this stock right now
  • A series of gamma squeezes
  • And, a highly potential short squeeze that can happen at any time

How many AMC shares should I buy?

If you’re planning on taking a position in AMC Entertainment set a budget for investing. Since the market is volatile at the moment, purchase shares incrementally.

The best time to buy a stock is when the share price has dipped. This will allow your investment to see gains when the stock price rises again.

Ladies and gentlemen, the last thing you want to do is to invest more than you can handle to lose. This advisory must be made.

If you’re holding AMC stock leave a comment below and let me know what a short squeeze would mean for you. Retail investors can feel it, the tendies are coming.

If you have not opened a brokerage account to begin investing, read how to invest in the stock market (step by step). In this post you will see a number of linked platforms that you can check out!

Important Advisory

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

On another note: It would be wise to not invest more than you can afford to lose. In other words, invest money you would be okay with losing for simpler terms.

More info on AMC from Trey’s Trades (Analyst)

Trey is an analyst in the stock marketing and trading world. His videos are super fun to watch as they are very informative and downright transparent. Furthermore, Trey’s personality just makes the videos all that much better.

Be sure to follow Trey as he engages his audience live when the market opens for real-life discussions.

Trey’s Trades – AMC Huge Institutional Buyers!

It’s important to keep yourself updated with the latest AMC news so you can invest with confidence.

This is not Trey’s Trades most recent video but it’s a very important one. Be sure to keep up with AMC analytics so that you’re aware of the play.

Another great Analyst covering AMC right now is Roensch Capital. They’re a little more analytical, but a trustworthy source nonetheless.


Everything is falling into place for AMC stock

Other YouTubers covering AMC in depth include Matt Kohrs, Max Maher, and Andrew Mo Money.

What’s cool about these YouTubers is that they all go on each others channels from time to time and do collaborations regarding DD. Trey and Roensch Capital are by far my favorite channels covering AMC.

I personally started following Trey’s Trades when he had about 10,000 subscribers. He’s nearing 300,000 now, and well deserved by the way.

But, if you want daily technical analysis on AMC, Roensch Capital is the channel for you.

Ignore the bogus headlines from The Motley Fool and other sources

AMC and r/wallstreetbets have been given lots of negative press from the likes of The Motley Fool and other sources; shaming the purchase of the stock.

The fool vs AMC

Fortunately we’ve been backed up by the real Wolf of Wall Street as well as Mark Cuban, Chance The Rapper, and other big names.

Influential outlets with powerful hedge fund partners (institutions who short the stock) have been attacking traders and investors by providing false information wherever they can.

What we’re seeing right now is that the big guys are losing money due to the price of shorted stocks going up. They will say and do whatever they can to divert the public from trading this stock.

My personal suggestion to you is to not let these sources intimidate you. Do your research to see how the stock price has been manipulated through bogus headlines and short-ladder attacks.

Not to mention, the complete halt of trading AMC stock by Robinhood. That’ll be another post for you.

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

AMC stock price closed at $55.18 on June 16th. The share volume has been increasing with new retail investors getting in on stock before it takes off. AMC Entertainment had an amazing runup today. The crazy thing is shorts haven’t even begun to close their positions. Ladies and gentlemen, the short squeeze hasn’t started.

Most of the market has been on sale and AMC has been no exception to that until now. AMC wants to keep climbing. The stock has seen green candles for a week straight now both during market hours and after hours.

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

Lets get started.

What do we know about AMC stock price?

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

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

AMC stock price bull market

Key highlights

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

Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Entertainment Interview

Adam Aron, CEO & President of AMC Entertainment

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

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

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

As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open 4/14
  • AMC Entertainment has raised more than 2.2 billion dollars in cash
  • 90% of AMC theaters in the United States are now open with New York and Los Angeles finally reopening
  • Vaccinations and policies are making movie theaters safe
  • New movie titles are guaranteed to increase sales revenues
  • CEO and President Adam Aron expresses an optimistic future for AMC Entertainment

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

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

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

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

AMC’s Short Borrow Fee

AMC short borrow fee interest

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 6/16 is: 1.68% via. Fintel.

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

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

Why AMC’s short borrow fee matters

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

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

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

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

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital AMC stock
Hedge Fund Melvin Capital – AMC Entertainment

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

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

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

Hedge funds are a sinking ship

Hedge funds are losing money shorting AMC stock

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

Shorts can either:

  1. Take the loses and close their positions right now where the stock price is around $55.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $55, resulting in even bigger losses.

With hedge funds shorting AMC losing billions of dollars its first quarter, it’s no surprise we’re going to the see this occur their second quarter as well.

How will this affect AMC stock price?

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

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

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

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

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

Read: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market.

AMC Gamma squeeze before short squeeze

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

AMC Gamma Squeeze Before Short Squeeze
AMC Most Shorted Stock

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

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

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

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

AMC stock predictions (analyst)

AMC prediction from Fidelity TRADER PRO

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

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

r/wallstreet bets and Discord

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

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

AMC stock price wallstreetbets

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

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

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

Take that for what it is.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

If you’re looking to take on a position in AMC you might want to get on the train before it takes off for good.

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.

Trending: Is It Too Late To Get In On AMC Stock?

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 short squeeze

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

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

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

Can AMC squeeze after hours?

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

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

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

Should you worry?

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

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

Here’s how you can prepare for a short squeeze

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

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

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

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

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

What should I do when AMC squeezes?

AMC stock price short squeeze

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

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

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

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

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

What is a circuit breaker halt?

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

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

Inversely, a stock selling off will often open lower.

Why this is worth mentioning

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

Important Advisory

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

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

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

It is absolutely amazing to see more and more people begin to invest in the stock market. You can bookmark this step by step guide on how to invest in the stock market in case you haven’t opened your brokerage account yet.

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!

Why are people investing in AMC stock?

AMC stock 
AMC Entertainment
AMC movie theater

People have the chance of a lifetime.

AMC was forced to close its doors to the world when the pandemic hit. AMC Entertainment suffered huge losses and hedge funds began doubling up on their short positions in attempts to bankrupt the company. Their goal was to get rid of the most respected movie theater franchise of all time, profit, and wash their hands clean.

Retail investors gathered on subreddit communities and decided to buy the stock and drive the price up; like they did with GameStop. This teamwork caused a gamma squeeze driving the price action from $2 up to $20. This allowed AMC Entertainment to raise enough capital for bankruptcy to no longer be on the table.

Since then, AMC Entertainment has been able to raise more than $2 billion dollars from life long partners. These partners have supported AMC since the inception of the company 100 years ago.

Retail investors saved AMC and are now looking to squeeze short sellers out of their positions.

AMC is currently the heaviest shorted stock in the market

Analysts discovered that AMC has a massive short squeeze potential. A short squeeze is a massive move up in price action. Short squeezes are violent and may produce 100%, 1,000%, and 10,000%+ gains.

What we discovered is that hedge funds shorting AMC Entertainment were overleveraging their positions. Meaning they were borrowing shares from brokers at an interest to drive the price down.

Short selling is the process of borrowing a share, selling it much lower, and profiting the difference when they pay back their lender. Short sellers usually bet on the price of a stock to tumble.

Here’s an example of short selling

AMC’s stock price was around $30 back in the booming party economy of 2016. Say short sellers borrowed 10 shares of AMC for $300 betting it would drop. Shorts would then sell the stock at the market value of $300 (you and I purchase it at $30) and wait for it to drop in due time. If the stock price fell to $25 per share then the short seller could buy back those 10 shares, profit the difference ($50) and give back the 10 shares they borrowed back to the lender.

AMC stock is going up, what happens then?

AMC stock is going up

Here is what’s attracted millions of retail investors and huge institutions such as Wells Fargo, Vanguard, Morgan Stanley and many more to AMC Entertainment.

AMC stock is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy and it is having an extremely healthy bullish run. The reason we’ve seen consolidation and red days is due to the massive amount of short ladder attacks conducted from short sellers and hedge funds.

A short ladder attack is a method used by short sellers where they transact synthetic shares amongst one another to drive the price of a stock down. This is only one of many ways we’ve seen foul play in the stock market.

Hedge funds shorting AMC are losing millions of dollars every day they don’t close their positions

Now here’s where it gets interesting. What happens to short sellers when a stock they’re shorting is going up instead of down?

The fee to borrow the share from their lender goes up and they’re pressured with two options.

  1. Pay the short borrow fee and continue to hold your short position in hopes the stock price will go back down, or
  2. Close your position, take your profit or loss, and possibly go long instead

Now, hedge funds such as Citadel and Melvin Capital have been quite stubborn. They’ve continued to overleverage their short position in AMC Entertainment to drive the price action down.

However, the AMC community isn’t leaving. It’s personal now and they’re willing to buy and hold the stock until shorts are squeezed out of their positions. Analysts have figured out that retail investors can continue to drive the price action up with enough volume in the stock.

Recently, there’s been a surge of new retail investors buying AMC stock. This increase moved AMC up to $15.50 after hours. Short sellers eventually drove the price back down to the $12 range; however, seasoned retail investors aren’t phased. AMC stock is currently trading around $55.18 now. The stock continues to go up.

The data shows a MOASS

MOASS, mother of all short squeezes.

Brokers have never seen this much shorting occur in a single stock in the existence of the stock market. The data predicts a short squeeze unprecedented like anything we’ve ever seen historically.

This is primarily due to the amount of synthetic shares and overleveraged positions that must be covered during a margin call. A margin call could force shorts out of their position resulting in a short squeeze.

How high can AMC’s stock price go up to? There’s no ceiling. However, more data will be released as the stock begins to squeeze.

Markets are being liquidated

Massive institutions have begun to liquidate assets in both the stock market and crypto market. Retail investors cannot cause the extreme price drop we’re seeing in both markets.

I speculate institutions are building capital to prepare for margin calls or raised margin requirements.

Proposal ICC-007 APPROVED

This proposal provides brokers with the flexibility to raise margin requirements on investors holding risky investments, such as a short position in AMC.

Brokers need collateral. If short sellers cannot meet the margin requirement then they will be forced to liquidate their entire positions, resulting in several gamma squeezes and inevitably a short squeeze.

If margin requirements are raised then shorts will have to either deleverage their positions (gamma squeezes), or fund their accounts with capital. Is this massive selloff in both the stock market and crypto market related to potential AMC margin calls and regulations? I think so.

An abundant opportunity

amc money

The reason why retail investors are buying AMC stock is for the opportunity of a lifetime. Not only is the public starting to invest but big institutions on retail investors’ side known as ‘whales’ are bulking up on the stock.

“Beware of the stock” (paid) articles

Platforms such as the Fool, MarketWatch and InvestorPlace are hedge fund affiliates. Retail investors encourage newcomers to do their own due diligence oppose to reading FUD articles (fear, uncertainty, and doubt).

Is it too late to buy AMC stock?

That depends. Look at AMC’s current share price. If it squeezes to $100, $1,000, or even $10,000+ would the trade have been worth it if you bought today at it’s current share price? You decide.

Will GameStop See a Massive Short Squeeze Again?

Will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again?
Franknez.com
GameStop GME stock

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

Just when we thought GameStop’s short squeeze was over we begin to see GME gain some momentum. GameStop has been the heart of the wallstreetbets movement and continues to have a strong sentimental hold on retail investors and gamers alike.

The retail investors who missed GameStop’s first squeeze either bought AMC shares or bought GME while it was still high. And if you got in when it fell back down to $40, well you’re doing pretty well right now. So, will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again? Here’s what we know.

franknez.com
GameStop Stock

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!

GME stock

GameStop closed at $222.50 on Friday June 15th.

Trading volume is currently sitting at 7.1 million with 11.1 million being GameStop’s average volume.

Understanding the short-seller

GameStop has taken the entire internet and finance world by a storm. What is happening nowadays. Retail investors over at r/wallstreetbets have opened Pandora’s Box on short-sellers and hedge fund institutions.

Short-sellers are investors who short the stock.

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

Short Selling GameStop Stock
How short selling works

We’ve seen GameStop drop down and consolidate at $40 after it’s squeeze peaked close to $500 per share back in January. As of June 15th it is trading around $222.50.

What is a short-ladder attack?

short-ladder attack is a strategy performed by short-sellers where they bid on the stock at a significantly lower sell price and purchase it from one another. Thus, driving the share price lower.

How do you spot a short-ladder attack? When the stock knows nothing but gains, but something keeps pushing it down until over and over again, that’s when you’ll know.

Why GameStop has potential for a second short squeeze

  1. Short-sellers didn’t learn their lesson from the first time. GameStop stock is still being heavily shorted.
  2. With GameStop becoming a technology company, its value has not only significantly gone up but it now has even more potential to keep driving its momentum.
  3. Retail investors have a strong conviction towards GameStop investment. This means they’re not willing to sell the stock which in turn creates a supply and demand scenario with short-sellers who have to close their positions.

Short Share Availability and Short Borrow Fee Rate

You can see GameStop’s short share availability and short borrow fee rate using this link (via. Fintel)

It is currently lower than we need it to be at in order to squeeze shorts from their positions. This number of course changes every day and can be expected to rise as hedge funds continue to short GameStop stock.

GME Stock Analysis

Roensch Capital goes over the data for trending stocks. The information is very easy to understand and gives you insight in the market from an analysts perspective.

Be sure to check out recent videos as they’re being uploaded to stay updated with any changes that occur in the market with GameStop.

Important Advisory

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

Volume is key to a second GameStop short squeeze

Just like AMC, GameStop will need to see a continuous runup in share volume.

When retail investors continue to buy and hold GameStop stock, short-sellers shorting the stock eventually have to buy back the stock. This demand and supply scenario results in various gamma squeezes.

The gains we’ve seen with GameStop have been a series of gamma squeezes, or incremental gains.

Usually what follows after gamma squeezes is a short squeeze if it has enough volume. The volume of shares depends on how much retail investors are purchasing GameStop stock or selling it.

You can keep an eye on it via. Yahoo Finance.

How Soon Will A Second GameStop Short Squeeze Happen?

There is so much volatility occurring in the stock market at the moment. Such volatility is usually a sign of an upcoming short squeeze as we saw back in January.

Not only are retail investors experiencing a lot of volatility, but GameStop stock seems to be in bullish territory which is great for volume.

FOMO (fear of missing out) continues to bring in new retail investors which is a great driving factor to the stocks volume.

GME seems to be experiencing gamma squeeze after gamma squeeze and we can only see it going through a second short squeeze as the overall market start to go up again.

Momentum will need to be carried out by hype. Even if a second squeeze doesn’t occur, retail investors can continue to drive the price up by buying the stock.

GameStop announces fourth quarter earnings for 2020

GameStop announces fourth quarter earnings for 2020

GameStop announced that it will be releasing its fourth quarter and fiscal earnings for 2020 on Tuesday, March 23rd after trading hours.

This announcement is very important because owners of the company will go over earnings, as well as future assessment that let retail investors know the direction of the company as a whole.

This of course can have a very good impact on the stock price should the reports come back positive.

Here is the link to GameStop’s news release –> LINK.

However, like most companies affected by the pandemic, the numbers for the last quarter weren’t the best. This shouldn’t affect the stock price moving forward though. There’s too much sentiment surrounding this stock now.

Saving GameStop

Retail investors now have the power to save any company they wish to save. Now it’s only a matter of time for GameStop to step up and raise capital so that they can innovate and provide more value back.

GameStop is currently looking for ways to operate more efficiently. While the Reddit community was able to keep them from going bankrupt, the company as a whole will need to start pulling their end.

Here’s what’s been going on with GameStop recently.

Current GameStop news

GameStop wallstreetbets
  • GameStop’s CEO George Sherman has forfeited more than 587,000 shares as he failed to meet performance targets according to REUTERS on a recent SEC filing.
  • GameStop is currently looking for a new CEO to replace George Sherman.
  • GME shares are still up nearly 800% this year with the company’s valuation to almost $12 billion.
  • Bullish GameStop options are still currently being heavily traded

So although GameStop’s CEO George Sherman isn’t fit to pick the company up from the ground up, the company is actively seeking a new CEO to takeover.

GameStop could really use a CEO like Adam Aron right now. Adam Aron is the CEO and President of AMC Entertainment. He picked up Norwegian Cruise Line back in the 90s from the brink of bankruptcy. He was also able to raise enough capital from long-life partners of the company, as well as from retail investors.

Whoever gets the privilege to run GameStop will be responsible for keep the fundamentals in the stock market tread strong.

What will happen to GameStop’s share price if they don’t profit their 2nd quarter?

Unfortunately, if GameStop does not improve their 2nd quarter earnings, fundamentals in the stock market will drive the stock price lower.

What can retail investors do?

If retail investors want to refrain GameStop’s stock price from descending, they’ll have to continue to hold and buy the stock.

Important advisory

If you hold a position in GameStop, it’s important that you ask yourself what your reason for holding is. Does your DD point to another possible squeeze? If so, stick to your convictions and trust the process.

Or, did you get in late and are hoping for another squeeze? I published a post outlining the differences between GameStop stock and AMC stock here.

I personally love both stocks. And I love both companies. Unfortunately I didn’t get in on GameStop before it’s squeeze so I took a position in AMC. AMC currently has an 80% chance of squeezing according to Fintel.

I would take a position in GameStop if it was a little more affordable. I do like the stock and I love the community in general.

Will another GameStop short squeeze happen?

I don’t personally think a GameStop short squeeze will happen any time soon. However, I do believe that if the company isn’t able to put a great CEO in place it will cause another overwhelming surge in shorting the stock.

Now here’s where I think retail investors will get the opportunity to replicate what occurred during GameStop’s first short squeeze. In this scenario, shorts are likely to drive the stock price very low again, giving retail investors the opportunity to engage again and squeezing shorts out of their positions.

With this being said, I’m with you apes holding GME. I have awesome memories at GameStop which I share at the end of this article.

Now let’s talk about a little justice. A major hedge fund that was attacking GameStop has now been reported to lose a significant amount of money.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin capital suffers 49% loss 1st quarter of 2021

Ladies and gentlemen this is massive. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both GameStop and AMC stock.

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

Here’s why this matters:

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

We’ve see GameStop’s short borrow fee decrease but I wouldn’t be surprised if it begins moving back up very soon. Hedge funds have been trying to obliterate our beloved GameStop from the face of the planet. Something about them losing a lot of money feels like justice.

Believe me, I’m 100% for making money. The ethical way. You should be supporting beloved companies, not targeting them just because you see an opportunity to kick someone when they’re down.

I personally hope the karma gets worse for hedge funds betting against both GameStop and AMC.

Read: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

Will GameStop stock go up again?

As long as the stock continues to be shorted and held, GameStop can expect a series of gamma squeezes to push the stock up again.

Fundamentals can also drive GameStop’s stock price up. The company will have to run efficiently by being able to meet projected goals. While replacing their CEO is the first step, the new sheriff in town will have to bring more value than George Sherman has.

In a scenario where GameStop comes close to another bankruptcy, we can expect shorts to start attacking the stock again. This means retail investors could potentially have another chance at buying the stock low and squeezing shorts out of their positions.

FAQs

Gamma squeeze vs Short squeeze

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

What is your first GameStop memory?

GameStop memory

Leave a comment below. Do you remember your first GameStop memory? I’m sure you have many. I remember the first time my brother and I went inside a GameStop it was unreal. It was my first time inside an actual video game store. The coolest thing was seeing how many different games and accessories they had for all the consoles at the time.

Some of the most awesome memories at GameStop was seeing that brand new game on display. For me, it was Guitar Hero. My god. Seeing all the marketing behind the game and the guitar in display was heaven.

I also remember the employees giving you close to nothing for a used game, lol. What are some memories you have of GameStop? I would love to hear from you. Leave them in the comment below.

How To Invest In Bitcoin Crypto For Beginners

How to invest in bitcoin for beginners

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

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

franknez.com bitcoin

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

Lets get started!

Is Bitcoin the future?

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

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

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

Will Bitcoin go back up?

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

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

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

Where can I buy Bitcoin?

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

I personally use Kraken.

Buy Bitcoin and Crypto with Kraken
How to invest in Bitcoin

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Begin by creating your account first

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

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

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

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

Buy Bitcoin

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

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

Can you buy a fraction of Bitcoin?

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

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

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

Is it too late to buy Bitcoin?

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

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

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

How high can Bitcoin go?

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

Can BTC reach $500,000?

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

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

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

Why is AMC Entertainment Stock Going Up Again?

Why is AMC Stock Going Up Again?
#AMCtothemoon #diamondhands

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

AMC stock is going up and continues to leave hedge funds and publishers such as Yahoo Finance, The Fool, and other sources baffled.

Although hedge fund partners are sticking together to mislead the publics opinion when investing in AMC (and other “meme stocks”), we’re going to let you know why this particular stock is going up.

Please keep in mind that I am not a licensed financial advisor. All the information you are about to read is based on expert sources and will be presented in a manor that informs you why AMC stock is going up.

Franknez.com
Why is AMC stock going up

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

Lets get started.

Volatility is normal in the stock market

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

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

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

Reasons why AMC stock is going up

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

AMC Entertainment is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy

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

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

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

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

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

You can check it out here.

AMC Q1 2021 Earnings

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

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

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

Fundamentals are also causing AMC stock to go up

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

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

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

AMC’s CEO is one great leader

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

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

Why are large institutions buying AMC stock?

Vanguard AMC

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

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

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

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

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

What is a short squeeze?

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

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

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

Volume is important for an AMC short squeeze

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

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

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

The main reason why AMC stock will keep going up

A short squeeze needs volume

AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market.

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

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

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

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

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

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Positive AMC Theater news!

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

Godzilla vs. Kong secures $9.6 million in ticket sales

AMC theater - Godzilla vs Kong

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

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

Mortal Kombat & Demon Slayer outperform earnings

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

AMC theater Mortal Kombat

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

The top 10 locations for Mortal Kombat were:

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

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

A Quiet Place Part II: $57 Million Pandemic Record

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wall Street analyst upgrades AMC Theatres

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

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

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

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

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

In short, no. With the price of AMC stock being affordable to majority of the public, it’s a steal right now. Especially considering it was much higher prior to the pandemic. The share price was around $30 back in the booming party economy year of 16′!

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

Feds Hunt For $720 Billion Dollars From Reverse Repo

fed reserve repo amc

Get mind blown. The feds are cutting off what could be the last lifeline institutions have for borrowing money. They’re hunting down a whopping $720 billion dollars from a reverse repo.

franknez.com AMC

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!

What is a reverse repo?

A reverse repo is where feds loan out money to institutions such as hedge funds due to cash flow issues. The reason an institution would borrow money from the feds is because they don’t have other cash reserves. When hedge funds borrow money from the fed it usually means it’s a last resort type of situation.

How does this connect with AMC?

Why is this is significant to AMC and the ape community? The feds need their money back, like now. This could explain all the selloffs in the markets. It seems like institutions have liquidated a lot of their positions in the both the stock and crypto markets in order to pay back the feds now.

If hedge funds and institutions don’t have enough capital left in their margin accounts then they’re going to be in some real deep waters. This could finally be the end of it my friends. Short sellers’ nightmares have truly become a reality. I hear margin calls baby. Lets dive in some more.

The Federal Reserve is stepping in

Fed Reverse Repo Chart
Fed Reverse Repo Chart

Right off the bat I want to point out that the Federal Reserve is collecting $720 billion back from institutions who borrowed the money. What’s insane is that this maturity, or expiration date is on NET15 from the issue date of Wednesday June 9th, 2021.

This means institutions who borrowed all this money have to pay it all back by June 24th. This could very well explain why the stock market as well as the crypto market have tanked recently. Institutions need cash ASAP.

It’s likely institutions such as hedge funds needed to liquidate their accounts in order to pay back the feds. I mean what else could have possibly caused the entire markets to tumble all at once?

If institutions were borrowing money from the fed as a last resort, what does this mean for hedge funds moving forward? Will hedge funds who borrowed money from a reverse repo be able to cover their minimum margin requirement? And if so at what costs?

Will hedge funds be able to pay back the feds?

Hedge funds borrow money from reverse repos betting that they’re going to make money from it before they pay back the feds. Unfortunately for them this might not be the case this time.

Any institution that has been shorting AMC, GameStop and other ‘meme stocks’ will be paying back the feds at a loss. But it gets worse for short sellers.

Not only are they paying the feds interest, but they’ve also paid a short borrow fee interest all year to borrow stock. Hedge funds are getting hit with a storm of karma if you ask me.

According to Business Insider, hedge funds lost well over $6 billion dollars since the start of May alone and short sellers have lost another $5 billion dollars since the start of the year. Millions more are disintegrating by the day.

Hedge funds are having a terrible 2021 to say the very least. I said this many months back and I’ll say it again. They should have closed their positions when AMC’s stock price fell back down to $8-$14. But I guess ego is king right? Their year is about to get a whole lot worse.

Key Points

  • Reverse repo’s are when feds loan money to institutions having cash flow issues
  • Institutions have to pay back $720 billion dollars by June 24th
  • Hedge funds continue to lose millions to billions each day and are running out of lifelines
  • Short sellers could face margin calls very soon if they cannot meet minimum margin requirements

This is a very exciting time for retail investors. Something incredible is unfolding right before our very own eyes.

Not only is history being written, but justice will be served for the 2008 financial crisis. The average retail investor is about to make the trade of a lifetime.

Will AMC finally squeeze?

I personally think we’re about to start seeing gamma squeeze after gamma squeeze. This will primarily be due to the continued buying pressure from retail investors as well as institutions losing a lot of money, resulting in willingly closing out their positions. And if it’s not willingly then the significant loss of money could lead to immediate liquidation through margin calls.

Short sellers will cave in, they will lose. Whether it’s now or later it really doesn’t matter. But they will. Just like a short squeeze, their fate is inevitable.

AMC Stock – Feds are done with hedgies

Trey’s Trades – Fed reverse repo

I want to leave this video from Trey the man himself regarding this topic on the reverse repo. If you aren’t subscribed to Trey yet be sure to do so.

He’s a technical analyst that sparked this entire movement with AMC’s short squeeze. I have a tremendous respect for Trey and will always give credit where it’s due.

And lastly. . .

If you found this article to be of value be sure to share it with the rest of the community. Most hedge fund affiliate media platforms will not report the positive occurrences that play in the retail investors favor.

It is up to us to help new retail investors become aware of the situation at hand and all news related to AMC.

This is why I publish articles that support the AMC community and the cause to the absolute fullest. The public deserves to know this information and they deserve this chance 💯.

Retire a Millionaire with the S&P500: Is it Possible?

is it possible to retire a millionaire by investing only in the s&p500 index fund?
Is it possible to retire a millionaire by investing only in the S&P500 index fund?

Not investing in the stock market yet? Bookmark this page to learn how!

The S&P500 is one of the most attractive index funds amongst many others. This index fund tracks the performance of the top 500 companies in the U.S. The S&P500 also earns on average a whopping 8%-10% yearly return. This makes it one of the most secure and rewarding index funds in investors portfolio’s.

If you’re curious as to which companies are pooled in this index fund I’ll have the entire list for you too.

As more of the public learns about investing and just how easy it is to purchase a stock, more long term assets will get discovered. While cryptocurrency has been extremely popular amongst younger people, at some point it’s time to sit down and start thinking about your long term financial success.

So, is the S&P500 all you need to retire a millionaire? Lets dive in.

S&P500 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!

I’m writing this article to further provide knowledge to my readers participating in crypto and short term trading. My mission is to help you succeed financially. And although I’m pro opportunity, I’m also pro on delayed gratification and long term investing.

To start this off, see what this multibillionaire thinks of the S&P500 index fund.

Warren Buffett approves

We all know Warren Buffett for being one of the most successful stock pickers of all time. If you follow him then you’re also aware of how much he loves index funds. Warren has even instructed the trustee of his estate to invest 90% of the money he leaves to his wife in the S&P500. This is a clear sign of what Warren Buffett’s conviction in this particular index fund.

Warren Buffett S&P500 quote

“In my view, for most people, the best thing to do is own the S&P 500 index fund.”

Warren Buffett

The benefits of owning the S&P500 include low commission fees and a diversified pool consisting of the most successful companies in America.

So is the S&P500 enough? In reality, this depends on what how much is enough to you. If Warren Buffett’s conviction towards the S&P500 is strong then it must be right?

Investment calculator: $1 million dollars

via. Smart Asset

If you were to invest only $400 per month with a return of 10% for 30 years, you’d retire a millionaire.

For most retirees this would provide a comfortable living, especially when armoring up with social security benefits.

You can use the calculator here to personalize your contributions and years to grow.

S&P500 historical chart
S&P500 historical chart

Does the S&P500 pay dividends?

Yes, the S&P500 has paid dividends ranging from 3%-5%. It has never dropped below 3% on average since it’s establishment. I personally hold the S&P500 through Vanguard, ticker symbol VOO. It’s been a great performing index fund long term and I plan on adding to my position yearly.

You may choose to purchase the S&P500 monthly or on a yearly basis. I usually contribute to my portfolio when the market is on discount.

Reinvesting my dividends has allowed me to purchase fractions of the index fund passively. This snowball effect will play a massive role to my portfolios growth long term.

The S&P500 was actually my very first investment in the stock market. Just recently a gentlemen in the AMC community made an eye opening statement. He said if you put $5 million dollars into the S&P500 it would yield you $500,000 in dividend income per year. And this is without contributing a single dollar!

It’s no wonder Warren Buffets instructions are to move 90% of his assets into this index fund. It truly is a wealth builder.

Why does the S&P500 keep going up?

The S&P500 will continue to go up simply because America is always growing. As long as America remains a capitalist country, this index fund is always going to trend upwards.

The S&P500’s performance is going to highly depend on the performance and well-being of our economy. Sure we might stumble across some hiccups but America is always pushing forward. The top 500 companies being tracked by the index fund are always growing. These companies are the best in the world and their primary goal is growth.

I don’t see a moment in time where the S&P500 yields poor performance. Everything we know to be America would have to be wiped out from the face of the planet. And I think we’re doing pretty well to say the least.

Like every stock in the market, there’s no ceiling to just how high the S&P500 can go. As long as there is inflation, and there will always be, this index fund is going to continuously go up forever.

The best time to plant a tree was yesterday. The second best time is today. This Chinese proverb makes so much sense in every aspect of a successful and abundant world. The sooner we start investing in our futures means the better off we will be when we are ready to reap the rewards.

Naked Shorting is Making it’s Way to Mainstream Media

Naked shorting AMC

The illegal practice of naked shorting has now publicly made it’s debut in the mainstream media. CNBC and FOX Business have both acknowledged the manipulation, and the AMC community is loving it.

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!

Hedge funds have been using illegal tactics such as naked shorting, to drive down the price of meme stocks.

Naked shorting became illegal back in 2008 when the economy collapsed. Retail investors are questioning why the SEC hasn’t stopped these illegal and unethical tactics on AMC or GameStop. So, what’s naked shorting anyway?

What is naked shorting?

Naked shorting is the illegal practice of trading a stock that is not available or does not exist. Clearing houses are responsible for allowing or denying these transactions to execute, or go through.

Citadel is a hedge fund that has been shorting AMC Entertainment. They are also a clearing house which means they hold accountability for allowing these illegal activities to occur in the first place.

The SEC needs to understand that hedge funds have too much power. Their power must be divided.

CNBC on naked shorting / Melissa Lee

Melissa Lee has been the talk recently on social media regarding the mentioning of naked shorting. It seems she accidentally let it out on live television.

Melissa Lee Naked Shorting AMC CNBC

I didn’t want to embed the video simply because of the noise. Sometimes noise is just irking you know? Here’s the link to the video.

The community is speculating it was a mistake on Melissa Lee’s end but I don’t think so. I personally think she was speaking freely. The panel did not seem to like it though.

This clip came shortly after CNBC’s interview with Trey’s Trades. The mention of naked shorts is incredibly helpful to the AMC community because it puts us on the radar at scale with what’s going on.

Retail investors have been filing reports since February regarding the illicit activities. The question is why did it take the SEC several months to finally make a statement that they were looking into tightening restrictions on short sellers?

Jefferies Prime Brokerage blocks short sellers

Jefferies Prime Brokerage announced they will no longer allow the execution of short sells. This gives retail investors the momentum they need to continue driving AMC’s share price through volume pressure.

With a source plugged for short sellers, AMC stock should now have more runway to continue surging.

FOX Business on naked shorting

Charles Payne from FOX Business makes a great point when he questions why the SEC has allowed the illegal activities of naked shorting.

In this video you’ll find just how much FOX Business and its partners are against naked short selling. Naked short selling was the cause of the last financial disaster in 2008 and could be the reckoning of the market today as well.

It’s amazing to see experts back up the community regarding naked shorting. This is exactly what retail investors need in order to start seeing some change.

One of the biggest things the community wants to see happen is for margin calls to begin taking place. Margin calls would essentially force short sellers to close their positions ending this once and for all.

And for the retail investors? This would mean a short squeeze of a lifetime.

Naked short selling and FTDs

Naked shorting has been the cause of many fails-to-deliver that were in the pocket and needed to execute.

Because many synthetic shares have been floating around in the market, call options in the pocket that should have gone through never did.

Hedge funds have been cheating the system. Any fine the SEC gives to these institutions is only an operating expense. The SEC must be investigated by the FBI.

What can the community do about the manipulation?

The community has to be loud. Share this information. But don’t just share it, voice your opinion too because it matters more than you know.

Tag people in power, tag the news, get things trending. This generation is the generation to make real change happen. In 2020 we saw what happened when the community stood up against corruption.

We are powerful united. Hedge funds must be margin called. And once they are, their power must be divided.

Sign the petition to margin call Citadel here and be sure to share it with the community.
