Citi, Goldman, Extend AMC’s Covenant Waiver to 2024: What it Means

AMC Covenant Waiver
Market News Today: Banks extend AMC’s covenant waiver to 2024.

CEO Adam Aron said Citi, Goldman Sachs, and Credit Suisse have extended AMC’s covenant waiver to March 31st of 2024.

“This is a reflection of AMC’s recovery being well under way… a vote of confidence in AMC by our banks that we much welcome. Thank you Citi, Goldman, and Credit Suisse”, said AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) CEO Adam Aron on Wednesday.

So, what exactly is a covenant waiver extension and what does this mean for AMC Entertainment?

What is a Covenant Waiver?

A covenant waiver is when a lender temporarily forgives a borrower’s breach of a loan covenant.

In AMC’s case, the lenders are Citi, Goldman Sachs, and Credit Suisse.

Debt covenants are restrictions that lenders (creditors, debt holders, investors) put on lending agreements to limit the actions of the borrower (debtor), AMC Entertainment.

In other words, debt covenants are agreements between a company (AMC) and its lenders (Citi, Goldman, Credit Suisse) that the company will operate within certain rules set by the lenders.

Should a borrower violate a covenant, such as not maintaining a certain interest coverage ratio or engaging in unpermitted business activities, it may constitute a loan default, per The Balance.

Financial Covenants Explained

Covenant requirements are conditions the borrower must regularly meet throughout the term to demonstrate their creditworthiness to the lender.

Lenders frequently use certain financial tests that serve as indicators of the borrower’s repayment ability.

Failure to meet these tests violates the covenant and constitutes loan default.

In AMC Entertainment’s case, lenders have waived, or forgiven AMC’s breach of contract, per their loan covenant and extended it to March 31st 2024.

What Does This Mean for AMC Entertainment?

For AMC Entertainment, a covenant waiver will allow the business to run operations under its debt contracts with Citi, Goldman Sachs, and Credit Suisse until 2024.

If the company fails to meet its debt obligations, or financial covenant requirements, then the loans are subject to default.

This puts AMC Entertainment in a tricky position in terms of what they can and cannot do or say.

Which also explains why the CEO cannot raise awareness of the manipulative shorting of the company stock.

It’s very likely that speaking out on such topics may violate these covenant agreements.

Some retail investors have scrutinized Adam Aron for not speaking out on naked shorts like other CEO’s are doing today.

But this news may provide shareholders with more perspective on why that is.

Is AMC Entertainment Being Held Hostage by Lenders?

Citigroup currently holds call options representing 0 of underlying shares valued at $0 USD and put options representing 55,000 of underlying shares valued at $383,000 USD.

Source: Fintel.

The bank has been selling shares while playing put options in order to profit from the drops they’re triggering in the market.

As of November 7th, 2022, Citigroup has dropped AMC’s price target from $3.13 per share to $1.20 per share and used the media to promote the price target.

Just a month prior to Citi’s price hit, Credit Suisse said in October AMC shares are worth less than $1.

The banks are making their money which means it’s going to be up to the company and shareholders to prove the Wall Street short thesis wrong.

But I’m interested in hearing your thoughts.

Investors Say CEOs Should Fight Naked Short Selling Like GNS

GNS CEO Roger Hamilton
GNS CEO Roger Hamilton – Market News Today.

“They’re predators. They’re doing something illegal, and we want it to stop”, says GNS CEO Roger Hamilton.

The Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Genius Group Limited (NYSE American: GNS), a leading entrepreneur edtech and education group, approved at a meeting of the Board held on Wednesday 18th January 2023, an action plan to address illegal short selling of its stock.

This action plan includes creating a Board-led ‘Illegal Trading Task Force’ to actively pursue all possible actions together with the regulators in their discovery and prosecution of persons engaging in market manipulation involving the ordinary shares of Genius Group.

This Task Force will be led by Timothy Murphy, a Genius Group Director and former Deputy Director of the F.B.I., Richard Berman, also a Genius Group Director and chair of the Company’s Audit Committee, and Roger Hamilton, the CEO of Genius Group.

The Company has been in communication with government regulatory authorities and is sharing information with these authorities to assist them.

Retail investors on social media are supporting Genius Group’s CEO Roger Hamilton in his efforts to expose and bring down manipulative short selling.

The retail community has voiced their concerns with dark pool trading, OTC trading, and naked short selling in prominent companies such as AMC Entertainment, GameStop, Mullen Automotive, Biora Therapeutics, Meta Materials, and many more.

“It’s like being robbed in a library, but you can’t shout ‘Thief!’ because there are ‘Silence, please’ signs everywhere.” – Roger Hamilton, CEO of Genius Group Limited.

Speaking Out on Naked Short Selling

Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne spoke out against naked short selling in 2007 but was ridiculed and eventually investigated himself by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Elon Musk has commented on not just the SEC but has said at one point Tesla was the most shorted company in the market.

In a CNBC exclusive, Elon Musk says hedge funds have used short selling and complex derivatives to take advantage of retail investors.

Something retail investors who purchased so called ‘meme stocks’ in 2021 found out very easily.

“Hedge funds tank stocks using ‘short and distort’“, says the Tesla CEO.

A tactic where hedge funds impose their influence on corporate media such as The Fool, Wall Street Journal, and MarketWatch to scare people out of their money, then short the stock to capitalize on selloffs.

John Brda (Torchlight, MMTLP) talks naked short selling with GNS CEO Roger Hamilton.

Is Roger Hamilton the new voice for retail?

The retail community certainly seems to think so.

Unlike Patrick Byrne, who unfortunately didn’t have the massive support he deserved, Roger Hamilton has many large retail communities made up of millions of people supporting the cause.

Social media has allowed retail investors to voice their opinions and concerns regarding the manipulation of their favorite companies.

Citizen journalism platforms, such as FrankNez and Rebel News have helped spread awareness surrounding people’s concerns.

Should New Regulators Be Put in Place?

Retail investors are convinced FINRA, the DTCC, and the SEC are complicit in the market manipulation that occurs in these companies.

Citadel’s Global Head of Operations, David Inggs, has a board seat at the DTCC.

On January 28th, 2021, The DTCC waived $9.7 billion of collateral deposit, limiting institutional losses and limiting retail profits during the ‘meme stock’ frenzy.

The organization allowed several naked shares to flood the market prior to the massive jump in share prices only to help financial institutions in the end.

On the other end, out of the four commissioners in the SEC who voted, Hester Peirce was the only one who voted no on market transparency.

Hester Peirce is tied to a lobbyist group of anti-regulators.

The Intercept wrote a piece on Hester Peirce in 2015 titled, “SEC Nominee To Oversee Wall Street Works At Think Tank Dedicated To Blocking Regulation.”

And according to the research, Hester Peirce received 98% of her salary from the Mercatus Center, a “think tank” that provides an academic façade to a radical anti-regulatory agenda.

What does the GNS CEO have to say about our regulators?

The company is fighting back “because we want this to stop,” Hamilton told MarketWatch. “They’re taking value away from our shareholders. They’re predators. They’re doing something illegal, and we want it to stop, whether that means getting regulators to enforce existing regulations or put new ones in place.”

Should more companies fight naked short selling like GNS CEO Roger Hamilton?

Wall Street Naked Shorts
Wall Street Naked Shorts – Franknez.com.

GNS CEO Roger Hamilton is bringing the fight to Wall Street and regulators.

The retail community has his back, the question is, will other CEOs step in?

Many shareholders in the AMC community have urged the company’s CEO Adam Aron to speak out against the illicit activities occurring in the company stock.

The CEO has mocked short sellers but hasn’t taken an activist stance, yet.

Should more companies fight naked short selling?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

Will AMC Stock Squeeze This Year? [Short Interest Data]

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?
AMC Short Squeeze – AMC Entertainment 2023 – AMC Stock Price – AMC Stock Squeeze

Will AMC squeeze This Year?

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 22%.

Ladies and gentlemen, AMC stock has plenty of room for growth in 2023.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides retail investors market news with integrity. Today we’re discussing AMC’s short interest data to determine whether it will squeeze in 2023.

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 2023.

AMC Short Interest Data (2023)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

AMC’s short interest is currently at 22.10%.

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 22%, this is a short squeeze play in 2023.

A 22% short interest is equivalent to approximately 179.25 million shares on loan (shares that have been borrowed and have not yet been closed).

When AMC’s short interest dropped from 22% to 14% (6 points), the share price rose to $72 per share.

New short positions have brought AMC’s short interest up to 22% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

AMC’s short interest for 2023 is updated here daily for free, via Ortex.

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 2023.

Sitting at 22% 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 2023.

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 2023..

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.

Latest Market Regulation/Proposals

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 2023.

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

It’s about freedom.

PELOSI Act Will Ban Lawmakers from Trading Stocks

Market News: What is the PELOSI Act?
Market News: What is the PELOSI Act?

Senator Josh Hawley reintroduced the ‘Pelosi Act’, a bill to ban lawmakers from trading in the stock market.

The bill would prohibit members of Congress and their spouses from holding or trading individual stocks.

The bill will require members found in violation to return their profits to American taxpayers.

“For too long, politicians in Washington have taken advantage of the economic system they write the rules for, turning profits for themselves at the expense of the American people.

As members of Congress, both Senators and Representatives are tasked with providing oversight of the same companies they invest in, yet they continually buy and sell stocks, outperforming the market time and again,” said Senator Hawley.

“While Wall Street and Big Tech work hand-in-hand with elected officials to enrich each other, hardworking Americans pay the price.

The solution is clear: we must immediately and permanently ban all members of Congress from trading stocks.”

What is the PELOSI Act?

Nancy Pelosi Insider Trading
Nancy Pelosi accused by the retail community of insider trading.

The PELOSI Act will:

  • Prohibit members of Congress and their spouses from holding, acquiring, or selling stocks or equivalent economic interests during their tenure in elected office. Any holdings in diversified mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, or U.S. Treasury bonds are exempt from the prohibition.
     
  • Give members of Congress and their spouses six months, upon assuming office, to divest any prohibited holdings or place those holdings in a blind trust for the remainder of their tenure in office.
     
  • Ensure members or their spouses forfeit any investment profits to the American people via the U.S. Treasury if they are found to be in violation if the Act. Members who violate the requirements will also lose the ability to deduct the losses of those investments on their income taxes. The ethics committees of Congress may levy additional fines and will publicize violations.
     
  • Require that after two years of the Act’s implementation, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) will conduct an audit of members’ compliance with the Act.

The public has argued that Nanci Pelosi’s incredibly fast-growing stock portfolio has been the result of insider trading.

Pelosi has claimed that the portfolio is her husband’s, but major conflicts of interest arise when she has backdoor information hidden from the average investor.

Retail investors are supporting the PELOSI act, stating that the congresswoman is abusing her power.

Should lawmakers be banned from trading the stock market?

How Artificial Intelligence is Controlling Trade

Artificial Intelligence Trade
Stock Market Education: Artificial Intelligence and trade.

Artificial intelligence is the most important technology empowering every aspect of business, from medium-sized enterprises to large corporations.

Second, AI is best at processing and analyzing patterns from the oil of past data.

This has opened new doors for AI to assess the value of stocks, and there is talk of traders being able to use AI algorithms to steer stocks to generate higher returns.

So, this article will help you understand the role of AI in trading.

Trade And AI

The actual game begins with the price movements on the market. Those with the appropriate knowledge do this best, but determining the exact results is impossible. And it is at this point that the role of AI comes into play.

According to a report by JPMorgan, more than 60% of traders got the right results with the help of AI bots.

The market capitalization of AI bots is about $15 billion today and will grow to $19 billion by the end of 2024.

These numbers are commendable, but it is also of utmost value to understand the dynamics of these bots or simply the dynamics of trading with AI.

According to the Hedge Fund Survey, AI bots, once deployed then humans, do not have to come in contact with the major strategies of trade, as the stock market is highly volatile and complex, keeping the understanding by humans at every level is nearly impossible. 

Once the bot is deployed, things will be automatically handled by the bot. 

After the Covid-19 crash of the world’s major stock markets, forecasters used simulation AI to bring the downtrend up.

AI Autotrade’s mission is to predict the issues and risks associated with trading. It has made breathtaking efforts to develop the algorithms that manifest all trading using automation tools such as machine learning.

AI AutoTrade is a subsidiary of US-based Regal Assets, one of the fastest-growing companies in the US trading forex, cryptocurrencies, the-bit-index-ai.com, and many other assets.

The Main Pillars Of AI 

AI is a vast field with a range of tools that gives limelight to trading, and these tools are mainly;

Machine Learning

Machine Learning is a subset of AI, which trains the computer with data and helps to predict the desired value of that training. As mentioned earlier, the value of the stock over time can be assumed by tracking the patterns derived from data, and machine learning is the lethal tool for tracking the patterns. 

Deep Learning

Deep learning uses neural layers that comprise human behavior to help bots make decisions like humans with an additional layer of power. 

Customizable Tools 

AI empowers traders to use customizable tools that automatically set the portfolio with stocks that are more valuable than others. 

Data Analyzing Programming

With the help of programming languages, AI leverages decision-making and provides lethal speed to process data. 

Types of AI Trading

Trade and AI are not limited to a single mechanism; there are different approaches to trade to make things happen.

And few of them are;

High-Frequency Trading 

With this approach, automatic pillars will purchase and sell the stocks frequently and cause the portfolio to stand high, and this approach is readily changing the trader’s fortune. And this type of trading is highly recommended for day traders. 

Stock Picking

In this approach, traders make use of Ai to select the stock which is worth buying. Whole trading revenue is based on the value of the stocks. If the trader selects the most valuable stock, then there will be a greater margin of returns in the end. But this thing is only possible by implementing AI tools. 

But stock picking is singly not so prominent because what if the selected stocks are devalued due to the market trend? Then outcomes will be blunt for sure. 

Algo Trading

Traders on his can set the algorithms that help implement strategies according to the trader’s desires. 

With more volatility in the market, more specialized forms of AI tools will be provided, and developers, along with AI, will bring other technologies like metaverse and digital twin to ensure a better trading experience. 

Final Words 

Trade and AI have been explained profoundly. The trader has to understand that the AI bot over the trading is needed but knowing the whole mechanism is also of great wealth. 

AI does the trick with the help of subsets like machine learning, deep learning, and powerful algorithms that puts immense pace to processing the data. 


5 Ways to Find Stocks That Outperform the S&P 500

ways to find stocks
Educational: Ways to find stocks that outperform the market.

The S&P 500, or Standard & Poor’s 500, is a stock market index that tracks the performance of 500 large-cap publicly traded companies in the United States.

It is considered a benchmark for the overall performance of the U.S. stock market. It is widely used to measure the health of the U.S. economy.

The S&P Index Committee chooses the companies that will be featured in the S&P 500 by looking for businesses that are regarded as solid financially and economically and possess a track record of excellent profits and payouts.

5 Ways to Find Stocks That Outperform the S&P 500

To outperform the S&P 500, an investor would need to achieve a higher return on their investments than the index.

In this article, we’ll discuss five ways to try and achieve this.

Related: The Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for Passive Income

1. Fundamental Analysis

Fundamental analysis in trading involves studying a company’s financial and economic fundamentals to evaluate its intrinsic value and potential for future growth.

Studying financial statements, including the financial reports, balance sheet, and statement of cash flow, as well as assessing elements like the company’s leadership, market trends, and the challenging market, are part of this process. Due to the high correlation between these fundamental components and stock success, traders must be aware of these important basic components.

The goal of fundamental analysis is to identify undervalued companies with solid fundamentals that will likely perform well in the future.

2. Value Investing

A value investing strategy entails purchasing overlooked equities from the marketplace. This means the stocks are trading at a lower price than their intrinsic value, as determined by an investor’s analysis of the company’s financial and economic fundamentals.

Value investors typically take a long-term perspective and may hold on to their investments for several years to realize the full potential of their value.

They also focus on finding companies with a strong competitive position, a history of generating strong cash flows, and a good management team.

The goal of value investing is to find companies with strong fundamentals, such as steady earnings, cash flow, and dividends, that are currently underpriced by the market.

3. Growth Investing

Growth investing involves buying stocks in companies with the potential for high earnings, revenue, and market share growth.

Unlike value investing, growth investing is less focused on a company’s current financial and economic fundamentals and more on its potential for future growth.

Growth investing is typically riskier and, therefore, more hostile than value investing. Growth enterprises sometimes have a brief financial results history and may become profitable later.

A growth firm, on the other hand, may provide investors with large profits if it is fruitful.

4. Momentum Investing

Momentum investing is a strategy in which investors buy assets with recent solid performance and sell those with poor performance.

This approach is predicated on the notion that previously successful assets will proceed to prosper in the future.

This is in contrast to a “value” investing strategy, which involves buying assets undervalued by the market. Traders can apply momentum investing in many assets, including stocks, bonds, and commodities.

5. Index Funds

A specific kind of mutual fund and otherwise exchange-traded fund (ETF) is known as an index fund. It mimics or keeps track of the different aspects of an index of the financial system.

A mutual fund that invests in indexes also offers low management costs, broad market visibility, and minimal portfolio fluctuation. Such funds adhere to their standards regardless of the way the marketplace is performing.

Investors commonly use index funds to achieve diversification and long-term growth without constantly monitoring and adjusting their portfolios.

They are also popular among cost-conscious investors, as they typically have lower expense ratios than actively managed funds.

Related: How to Invest in The Stock Market for Beginners

End Note

The S&P 500 is considered a broad-based, market-capitalization-weighted index, which reflects the overall performance of the U.S. stock market.

It is important to note that outperforming the S&P 500 is difficult, as the index comprises some of the largest and most successful companies in the U.S. stock market.

Hence, you also need to know which stock research tools you should use to monitor the stock in the US stock market.

Many professional investors, such as mutual funds and hedge funds, try to beat the S&P 500, but most fail.

It’s important to have realistic expectations and a long-term investment horizon.

MULN shares have dropped since it peaked around $0.44 two weeks ago after the company revealed a number of risk factors that caused shares to tumble.

However, the amount of call options in the market compared to put options suggest investors remain bullish on where prices are headed.

Volume Distribution – MULN Stock Webull

On Tuesday, we’re seeing Mullen Automotive has 43.21K total call options versus only 290 put options (1:30hr prior to closing bell).

MULN stock call option volume went as high as 194K during the first week of January.

That same day, put options weighed in lightly at 12.7K compared to the latter.

However, shares have come down from its bull run earlier in January.

Shareholders suspect naked shorts are at work, keeping shares from rising despite the heavy demand.

MULN has a current short interest of 13.15% (updated daily).

This means the company is shorted despite majority of sentiment being bullish.

Heavy buying pressure will be the trigger MULN stock needs to create a disruption in the market.

Where is MULN Stock Going?

If MULN is able to break above $0.294 then shareholders can expect the stock to retest $0.30-0.31 per shares.

A break below $0.294 will send shares down to retest $0.28 and may go as low as $0.26.

Positive news may also trigger big buying pressure from institutional investors long on the company.

In December alone, 18 financial institutions purchased shares of Mullen Automotive.

The consensus for Mullen Automotive today remains a strong ‘buy’.

Many institutions are going long on Mullen Automotive stock.

Out of 173 financial institutions investing in Mullen Automotive, only 1 is short with 172 being long, per Fintel.

Still, the company is a target for short seller, per Ortex figures (updated daily).

Shareholders even suggest naked shorting is fueling lower share prices and preventing shares from rising based on retail and institutional demand.

Fintel is also reporting a large percentage of MULN trades going to dark pools.

Approximately 46.16% of MULN trading is happening outside the lit exchange which equates to roughly 85.8 million shares per day.

Dark pool trading as unfortunate as it is, is a tool institutions have been using to gain an advantage over retail investors.

However, massive buying pressure in the end has always proven to play in retail’s favor.
