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.

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

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.

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

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 buys AMC
Ray Dalio’s 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.

Do you own AMC stock?

Leave a comment below.

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.

Is AMC Stock A Buy Or Is It Too Late?

Is AMC a good stock to buy? Is it too late to buy AMC Entertainment stock?

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, sell it, and buy back 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.

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.

And 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 $11.71 on May 16th. The stock has been on discount.

However, the community sentiment remains bullish meaning retail investors keep buying and holding the stock to squeeze shorts from their positions.

Shorts continue to short ladder the stock causing the downtrend we’ve been seeing.

But AMC wants to keep climbing.

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

Great news for AMC Entertainment (Archive Data)

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.

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 5/16 is 1.80%, via. Fintel.

The fee is going up after being down for many months.

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.

A surging short borrow fee rate could incentivize shorts to close their positions due to higher borrowing costs.

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 Citadel lose money, the short borrow fee only increases those losses.

AMC’s share price might be on discount right now, but hedge funds are experiencing losses on top of losses.

They’ll eventually have to close their short positions, will you miss it?

How high can AMC stock go up to?

AMC to the moon

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

This of course is just speculation as both stocks are heavily shorted and more people and institutions alike are buying and holding the stocks.

There’s a notion that all these suppressed gains will result in a massive short squeeze in the coming months.

So, is it too late to purchase AMC stock?

The price after a short squeeze eventually fall back down and level out, but this will take time.

With AMC stock trading below $100, now could be the perfect time to buy.

Despite what corporate media is pushing, AMC’s growth tells us the stock is undervalued.

But most importantly, big shorts have not covered.

Just don’t wait too long because we hear it’s going to the moon.

Hedge funds continue to short AMC and the volume is increasing; it’s the perfect storm for a short squeeze.

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.

Retail investors can feel it, the tendies are coming.

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.

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 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.

Is AMC Stock Due to Go Up Next Week?

will AMC stock go up next week?
Will AMC stock go up next week?

AMC stock finished up +5.45% on Friday.

The largest movie theatre chain in the world is down 55% this year as the DOW and SPY also face major pushback.

Stocks have fallen year-round, and AMC is no exception.

However, it’s important to remember that unrealized losses aren’t really losses.

Majority of companies have also had rocky earnings for 2022’s first quarter.

But how is AMC looking for next week?

Let’s discuss it.

AMC Q1 earnings call 2022

AMC Entertainment is just announced their Q1 earnings call for 2022 earlier in May.

The company has beat every quarter earnings since 2021 as more guests attended AMC movie theatres.

AMC announced earlier this year that as of Q4 of 2021, the company now has a positive EBITDA.

EBITDA provides investors with a snapshot of a company’s overall financial performance.

Fundamentally speaking, it’s a massive win for AMC Entertainment as a business.

AMC Shareholders were able to arm the company with more than $1.8 billion in liquidity for Q4 of 2021 and ended Q1 of 2022 with $1.7 billion.

CEO and President Adam Aron said this $1.7 billion will provide AMC with more security and flexibility to go on the offense.

Given the number of titles that have been released so far (and upcoming), AMC should have no trouble dominating in 2022.

AMC’s Q1 earnings will matter later

Despite AMC’s incredible improvement in the past year (and this year), earnings calls played a very little role in the company’s overall stock price.

AMC’s EBITDA improved this new year.

Analysts believed AMC and the entire movie theatre industry were going to collapse after the Covid lockdowns, but AMC proved them wrong.

AMC hosted approximately 60 million guests in the United States, Europe, and Middle East in Q4 alone.

And as Covid restrictions have been lifted in 2022, people are feeling safer attending the movies and other public events today.

This bear market is tanking stocks despite good or bad news as majority of the market mimics the SPY, down more than 15% this year.

What will truly move the markets is the transition from bear to bull market.

But if you haven’t heard of executive order 14032 yet, it’s incredible.

And I’ll touch more on it below.

Executive order 14032 goes into effect soon

If you haven’t read about executive order 14032 yet, you have to take time to read about it soon.

This order is going to affect the markets in an incredible way.

We recently saw small uptick in AMC after hours when it released positive earnings for Q1 of 2022, but it wasn’t able to maintain it due to the pull of the market.

AMC finished green on Friday, up 5.45%.

What is next week looking like?

SPY stock has hit $400 per share quite a few times, which leads me to believe it’s possible this area could be a strong level of support.

For an entire week straight, this level played a very important role, so we’ll have to keep an eye out on where things go from here.

A lot of the market follows the trajectory of the SPY (S&P 500), so we could very well see AMC consolidate for a while, mirroring the rest of the market.

If the SPY begins to make a break and move upwards, we could very well see AMC start a similar pattern, and vice versa.

But regardless of what happens, early June seems like it will be a very important time for AMC due to executive order 14032.

I’m curious to learn what you think.

Executive Order 14032 Could Be a Big Deal for AMC Stock

Executive Order 14032
Executive Order 14032 explained

Biden’s executive order 14032 replaced Trump’s executive order 13959 last year.

Executive order 13959 prohibited financial institutions to use Chinese securities as collateral, momentarily.

This propped up margin calls because of the large exposure our financial institutions have to Chinese securities.

When these securities were no longer accepted as collateral on January 27th, 2021, AMC stock surged.

The order was shortly amended (moved) to May 27th, 2021, where AMC stock had its second surge, reaching an all-time high of $72 per share only a few days after.

Biden then shortly passed executive order 14032 which gave institutions their collateral back for 365 days on June 2nd, 2021.

Well, those 365 days are coming to an end, and it seems June of 2022 could be a big month for AMC stock.

Let’s discuss it.

No dates, only info

Executive order 14032 - executive order 13959

I’d like to make clear that the information provided in this article is merely only information backed by real government documents and data.

This excerpt is not to confirm a specific date where we can anticipate AMC stock to move up in price action, but rather acknowledge what’s happened in the past that could very well occur today.

Executive order 13959

Redditors were wondering whether there was a document that confirmed the replacement of executive order 13959.

And here it is – the order was replaced by executive order 14032.

One of the biggest differences between these two orders is that the previous executive order affected a total of 30 securities.

Executive order 14032 will affect more than 70 securities.

You can view the list of companies here.

Executive order 14032 is to go into effect on Friday June 3rd, 2022.

Will executive order 14032 trigger a short squeeze?

Given the nature of the rule, executive order 14032 will prohibit institutions to use Chinese securities as collateral, which will result in large margin calls.

When executive order 13959 disarmed institutions with this collateral in January of 2021, AMC surged to $20+ per share.

The order was amended as stocks surged resulting in sharp declines, giving institutions this collateral back.

The amended date moved to late May, where we saw AMC reach an all-time high of $72 per share.

Institutions were then given their collateral back on June 2nd for a period of 365 calendar days.

This collateral will no longer serve institutions on June 3rd until the order is amended again.

The expiration date in early June leads us to conclude we will see major short covering in heavily shorted securities such as AMC stock.

And because the list of Chinese securities being affected has increased, this means the amount of collateral that will be removed has also drastically increased.

If history repeats itself, this next surge will be massive.

That’s not even taking into consideration the next amended date.

Will this executive order lead to MOASS?

I’ve mentioned in previous articles I don’t think institutions will be held accountable for synthetics, but I hope I’m wrong.

One thing I do know is retail investors will need to keep an eye out on AMC’s short interest data to identify whether short sellers are calling it quits or sticking around longer.

No matter how high AMC’s price surges, the short interest data essentially provides investors with insight on how much fuel is left in a short squeeze play.

When AMC rose to $72 per share, the short interest had dropped to 16% from 20%.

AMC’s current short interest is 21.57%.

We’ve also seen that AMC short sellers have hit a record high number of shares on loan.

This means they owe more shares today, than they did AMC surged to $20 and $72 per share.

A third runup will be huge for AMC stock.

Only time will tell whether executive order 14032 is the catalyst or not.

AMC is going to reach a new ATH

I believe AMC is going to reach a new all-time high from its previous record high of $72 per share.

Simply because the data is there.

The data that told us AMC was going to $20, then $72, and now even higher, is still there.

It’s just taking longer than traders would like.

But despite how long it takes, you can’t change the data.

You can’t change the fact that short sellers now owe lenders more than ever before.

And at some point, these lenders will need their money back.

Executive order 14032 seems like a highly likely trigger for AMC stock.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter.
