How Much Will APE Stock Be Worth?

Market News: Everything you need to know about AMC’s APE Stock Dividend

AMC shareholders are wondering how much APE stock will be worth.

The dividend was announced during AMC’s 2022 Q2 earnings call and has received a lot of attention.

But there seems to be a lot of misinformation going around regarding the dividend, as well as some hard truths.

In this article I’m going to break down how much APE stock will be worth and what shareholders can expect in the coming weeks for AMC.

Who will receive APE Stock?


AMC shareholders will receive 1 APE stock for every 1 share of AMC they hold at the end of the trading day of August 15th, per AMC’s press release.

Shareholders should see the new dividend stock reflect in their broker accounts the following week by Monday the 22nd.

APE stock is not a cash dividend which means shareholders will be able to trade the security like any other stock.

“These 516,820,595 new “AMC Preferred Equity units” will trade on the New York Stock Exchange with the symbol APE”, said CEO Adam Aron in a tweet earlier this month.

Shareholders who sell AMC stock prior to the closeout date will not receive APE stock upon the issue date.

Will APE expose synthetic shares?

AMC Ape Stock

There is a 50/50 chance APE stock will expose synthetic shares.

The reason being is that AMC Entertainment has already issued the 516.8 million equity units per outstanding AMC shares.

This means that the equity units already belong to every individual shareholder.

The problem will arise only when AMC shareholders do not receive APE stock.

If AMC shareholders only receive partial APE securities, then brokers will need to address the issue at hand.

An incomplete batch of APE stock could signify shareholders are indeed holding phantom shares.

But how likely is this scenario?

It’s very unlikely since naked shares tend to be transacted outside the lit exchange and are not traceable/recorded for the public.

Here’s what the CEO had to say regarding synthetic shares upon the announcement of this new equity unit.

The preferred equity dividend will go ONLY to company issued shares so if there are institutions holding synthetic shares, they will simply not receive APE.

How much will APE Stock be worth?

No, APE stock will not be worth $0.01 as many thought per AMC’s press release.

Adam Aron confirmed the “$0.01” referred to be merely a ‘placeholder’ used for technical legal terms.

APE stock will be worth approximately 50% of where AMC shares traded just before the dividend.

From there, market trading conditions will determine the ongoing share price of APE stock.

This means that if AMC traded at $25 per share before the dividend goes into effect, shareholders will see both AMC and APE stock reflect $12.50 per share each.

The value of AMC shareholders’ portfolios will not change but rather be divided in half by these two securities.

In other words, the value will be the sum of 1 AMC share plus 1 APE.

What’s up with Dilution rumors?

Is APE stock diluting AMC shares?

Yes and no.

While AMC shares are not being diluted, the introduction of APE stock allows the company to use half of the value of AMC shares to raise capital and pay down debt if they choose to.

Since shareholders have expressed they do not want to dilute AMC anymore, AMC Entertainment’s solution was to create a separate security (APE) from which they could use instead.

For the company, it’s a great fundamental move.

For shareholders, it means giving the company access to half of your capital.

Good or bad, this will depend on what the company means to each individual shareholder of course.

Some will be happy to play such an important role in the company’s growth and fundamentals, others not so much.

Many AMC shareholders purchased the stock to make money from a short squeeze so naturally there could be concerns.

Still, short sellers are betting against a company who are great at business and at raising capital, which is not ideal for them.

AMC Entertainment has proven time and time again Wall Street cannot stop their progress, growth, and innovation.

And where there are short sellers, there is a squeeze potential.

Final thoughts

Investors who purchased AMC stock to make some serious money must check-in with their conviction.

Although AMC’s share price will be divided in half, it will be up to investors to identify whether squeezing short sellers is still a priority.

And if it is, then APE stock should only be seen as another fundamental power move by the company to combat Wall Street opps (opposers).

Money should always be circulating, and that is what AMC Entertainment is successfully doing.

The question is, how will you as an investor allow your money to circulate and work for you?

That decision is yours and only yours to make.

AMC Skyrockets More Than 7 Times Pandemic Levels

AMC stock news today
Market News: AMC dominates in Q3 as share price and attendance rises

AMC Entertainment stock closed today’s trading day up more than 7 times during pandemic levels.

When the pandemic closed movie theatres, AMC was trading at $3.19.

AMC stock closed at $23.67 on Wednesday.

Mainstream media has been menacing about pointing out how far out the movie theatre chain is from its all-time high.

And CEO Adam Aron is not happy about the misleading headlines.

The CEO took it to Twitter to express his concerns.

Here’s what’s happening.

Mainstream media attacks

It comes as no surprise to see mainstream media publish headlines AMC is falling when in fact it is surging.

Or to read how far out AMC is from last year’s all-time high rather than the progress the company has made this year.

The conflict of interest surrounding institutional short sellers and the media is something that should be addressed more frequently.

Short and distort campaigns have focused on bringing AMC down in efforts to drive shares down.

Elon Musk has personally spoken out against short and distort campaigns saying it “takes advantage of retail investors”.

Here’s what AMC CEO Adam Aron had to say:

He says, “AMC is 11 times when we were written off for dead, 1/5/2021 $1.98 #TellTheWholeStory“.

Corporate media in the end is a corporation, an establishment that will cater to those who compensate them.

Though their approach may be unethical without a doubt, it’s up to retail investors to speak out and share pieces on the truth to educate their neighbors.

The Motley Fool, Yahoo Finance, fall in line

Yahoo Finance

The Motley Fool and Yahoo Finance have been one of AMC’s biggest media adversities.

For over a year now, both media sites have aimed to destroy AMC Entertainment’s reputation by painting a doomsday scenario around the company stock, CEO, and shareholders.

Other companies using short and distort campaigns to attack the movie theatre company include:

  • Benzinga
  • Seeking Alpha
  • InvestorPlace
  • MarketWatch
  • The Verge
  • CNBC
  • Barron’s

Independent blogs such as Franknez.com have been publishing the latter, the progression of the company.

Fox Business’s Charles Payne has also provided a positive attitude towards the development and recovery of the movie theatre chain.

But it’s the ‘ape’ community made up of retail investors who have been telling the ‘whole story’.

The true story.

So, what can investors do to combat mainstream media?

Share content from independent writers, share that activist’s tweet, and get the community’s voice heard.

That is what corporate media truly fears.

AMC jumps after bullish Q2 earnings

AMC Q2 earnings

AMC Entertainment announced it had its best Q2 in 3 years, up 61% from its previous two years according to CEO Adam Aron.

The company was able to seat more than 59 million guests worldwide in Q2 alone, due to massive titles such as Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness and Top Gun: Maverick.

But it’s the new AMC stock dividend that has everyone raving about Q2 earnings.

Shareholders are going to be receiving one $APE share for every $AMC share they hold.

You’ll have to be an AMC shareholder by the 19th of August to get yours straight from your broker the following trading week.

This new stock will not dilute AMC Entertainment stock as $APE is its own security, separate from AMC stock.

Shareholders will be able to buy, sell, and trade the stock like any other security.

In an effort to tackle synthetic shares, here’s what CEO Adam Aron had to say:

The CEO seems to be taking this ‘pounce’ much more fundamentally than retail would have desired.

But is that even a bad thing?

Wall Street loses grip

Analysts on Wall Street have been prophesizing the fall of AMC theatres for almost two years now, using mainstream media to mislead investors from buying the stock.

Had you listened to The Fool, Yahoo Finance, and other FUD platforms, you would have missed this opportunity for the third time.

But do no fret, as a big technical breakout could send AMC retesting the same levels it broke last year, sending AMC’s share price to another all-time high.

Short sellers will have to make a decision to either continue betting against this massive wave, or switch courses and ride with it.

Volume has begun to pick up for AMC, reaching 125.7 million on Friday alone.

Just five days ago the stock was trading at $14.33 per share ending the trading week at $22.18 and $22.45 after hours.

There’s no doubt the stock has begun a bullish trend.

The question is, will retail investors be able to continue to build the momentum leading into next week to break AMC’s next technical level?
