Will AMC Squeeze in 2022? [Short Interest Data]

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?
AMC Short Squeeze – AMC Entertainment 2022

Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

The Fool thinks you should sell your stock, and their name serves them right.

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 below $20 per share, then you would not be sitting extremely well like a lot of ‘apes’ are.

Investors who bought early are up more than 1200% alone from last year’s run.

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 gone up to 20% again.

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 get started!

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 20%.

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 still heavily shorted at 20%, it is still a short squeeze play in 2022.

A 20% short interest is equivalent to approximately 111.23 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 20% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

So, why has AMC stock been going down recently?

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

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

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

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?

AMC 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..

why AMC won't squeeze

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

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.

New Data Shows AMC and GME Stock are Manipulated

Proof AMC and GME are being manipulated
Proof AMC and GME stock are being manipulated

Data shows retail investors aren’t selling their AMC or GME stock, yet both stocks continue to plummet.

Are their share prices being manipulated?

Retail investors have been at war with hedge funds since the buy button was deleted from purchasing ‘meme stocks’ back in January of 2021.

Regulators such as the SEC are now under fire as well.

The SEC announced they will be voting on hedge fund disclosures, but investors aren’t convinced.

Keep reading for the latest AMC and GameStop market data.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on trending stock, crypto, and market news. Today we’re discussing market manipulation and anomalies in both AMC and GME stock.

Let’s get started!

AMC Market Data

AMC market manipulation
AMC price does NOT match retail buying and holding

The yellow you’re seeing in this market data by CheddarFlow is identifying the strength in buying and holding AMC stock.

The blue line you’re seeing is AMC’s trading price decline.

The price does not reflect the true demand for the stock; in other words, retail investors are not selling AMC stock.

So, why is AMC stock’s share price plummeting although retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock?

This anomaly seems to be blatant market manipulation.

Not only have hedge funds faced intense scrutiny for playing dirty, but many have defaulted or are losing money betting against AMC and GameStop.

Here’s what an accurate chart analysis of how this pattern should be in sync.

Peloton accuracy
Peloton sell-off matches price drops

As you can see in this market data analysis, Peloton’s blue line (price) matches the yellow pattern of investors selling the stock.

This is an accurate representation of what a sell-off looks like when compared to the price of a stock.

When comparing Peloton’s market data vs AMC’s, we can clearly identify that AMC’s share price is being manipulated.

AMC shareholders are not selling their AMC stock, but rather hedge funds are using loopholes to drive the share price down.

What about GameStop (GME)?

GameStop manipulation
GameStop market manipulation

We’re seeing the same market manipulation in GameStop as we are with AMC stock.

GME shareholders continue to buy and hold the stock as hedge funds manipulate the share price by tanking it.

Naturally, the demand seen by retail investors should be driving AMC’s and GameStop’s share price upwards, not downwards.

AMC and GME share price are synthetic

AMC and GME share price are synthetic

When comparing both AMC and GameStop’s data to Peloton’s sell-off, we can only conclude that AMC’s and GameStop’s share prices are synthetic.

They do not reflect the demand in the stock market nor the psychology and sentiment within the communities.

The ape community has always been right when it comes to the nefarious strategies used to suppress the share price of these stocks.

Both AMC and GME stock are heavily shorted at 20% short interest according to Ortex.

However, the short interest reported can certainly be much higher that what Ortex, S3, and Ameritrade are being given to report.

What does this mean for retail investors?

franknez.com

Retail investors who own shares in both AMC and GME stock have been experiencing a slow bleed in the markets.

The drops seem to be synthetically produced and are out of retail’s control.

Raising awareness of this market manipulation is the best fighting chance retail investors have.

There’s a massive suppression preventing AMC and GME stock from running a natural course based solely on supply and demand.

All activists fighting for a fair market should remain headstrong in creating change.

Lifting this suppression will drive both these stock’s share price up inevitably forcing short sellers to close their positions.

Proof of Naked Shares in AMC Has Surfaced [Data Driven]

Proof of naked shares in AMC

The incredible retail community is diving deep into collecting proof of naked shares in the market.

But more specifically in AMC stock.

In a case study done by Log the Float, the data shows more than 128 million shares of AMC were sold on Apex (clearing house), or 43.01% of AMC’s entire float.

It also equivalates to 24.99% of the shares outstanding.

Apex AMC naked shares

Below I break down their proof of naked shorting in AMC.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – proof of naked shorting has surfaced in a data driven article by a community member. I will break down pieces of the long article to simply its content.

Let’s get started!

In this excel file you’ll find that AMC has the largest percentage of shares outstanding compared to a variety of ticker symbols held by Apex.

The second company with the highest shares outstanding is CAR stock at 16%, which just had a short squeeze.

Car Stock Short Squeeze Chart
Car Stock Short Squeeze Chart

Proof of Naked Shorting in AMC

AMC naked shares on Apex
Naked shares AMC

The lowest point of this graph reflects the 24.99% shares outstanding on Apex (December).

You can imagine how much higher this percentage was back in January and May of 2021 (peaks).

So, although we see an incredible amount of share dilution last year, the percentage is still rather high going into 2022.

LTF argues that the percentage should be around 1% or less considering Apex is not even one of the top clearing firms and touches topic on “market-maker alliance”.

While one might argue that we would need more information from other market makers to validate the existence of naked shares, this is certainly a good start.

The argument isn’t about how many naked shares are out there, but whether they exist or not.

Let’s hear what Charles Gradante has to say.

Also, be sure to watch the topic discussion on YouTube at the end of the article.

Charles Gradante on Naked Shorting

In this incredible event panel, hedge fund industry expert Charles Gradante provides us with insight on what’s truly happening from Wall Street’s perspective that mainstream media isn’t talking about.

While mainstream media and regulators look at retail investors, Charles Gradante explains market makers favor shorting stock, creating a massive conflict of interest given the incredible amount of power they have over the markets.

Charles Gradante on meme stocks and market makers

Charles Gradante says regulators don’t know how to handle “it” when referring to the market manipulation surrounding “meme stocks”.

“When shorting got out of hand, the market makers created synthetic shorts”

Charles Gradante

Charles provides retail investors with an immense amount of value in this short video.

He walks us through the taking away of the buy button in order to benefit market makers and hedge funds who went short on AMC and GameStop.

Ladies and gentlemen, we now have proof of naked shares in the market.

Retail investors must now look onto regulators to ensure every single naked share out there is bought back and reflected accurately on the lit market.

The biggest transfer of wealth will require individuals to tackle their rights for it.

Once again, the ape community was right.

What to expect moving forward

franknez.com

AMC stock continues to be bought and held by retail investors across the world in attempts to squeeze big shorts from their positions and create real change in the markets.

The play has become more than just a trade, it’s become a movement.

Persistence and patience are what will create this massive transfer of wealth for anyone holding these heavily and overleveraged stocks.

Regulators will be forced to find solutions with integrity or face the consequences from the new world.

10 Myths About The AMC Apes The Media Has Wrong

Apes Together Strong
Apes Together Strong

Who are the AMC apes?

They’re the retail investors fighting for market change in our financial system.

We’re the ones who saved AMC and GameStop from going bankrupt.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides you with articles on stock, crypto, and market news. Here are 10 myths about the AMC apes the media has wrong.

Let’s get started!

1. “Apes Have No Education”

Apes Together Strong

Apes actually come from a variety of backgrounds and yes, professions.

Retail investors in the community range from your average 9-5 hustlers to business owners, doctors, and even lawyers.

Though many identities are kept hidden, it’s not difficult to see why.

People from all over the world have become an ape for more reasons than just money.

2. “Apes Want To Overthrow The Government”

apes are exposing financial risks

Apes don’t want to overthrow the government, apes actually just want a fair market.

Contrary to how apes are portrayed in the mainstream media, the community is not made up of hooligans who want to overthrow the government.

Apes simply want government to hear the communities concerns regarding the market.

Hedge funds pose risks to our financial system.

The ape community has made it a mission to create real change for a fair market thus sparking a real movement.

3. Not Everyone Is A New Retail Investor

New Retail Investors

The community attracted many new retail investors.

However, many apes have been investing in the stock market for years.

I’ve actually provided the community with my personal long-term winning stock picks for when they’re ready to diversify.

Other apes in the community show new retail investors how to read chart patterns and even how to day-trade other plays that aren’t AMC or GME.

This is the community where the average person can not only learn how to invest in stocks, but also gain magnitudes of value and knowledge.

#4. We Don’t All Hang Out On Reddit

apes wallstreetbets reddit

Although apes started on Reddit, a lot of apes don’t actually affiliate themselves as a ‘Redditor’ or with r/wallstreetbets.

AMC and GME apes have separated from r/wallstreetbets mainly due to an increase in infiltration from shills, toxic persons who’s mission is to bring down the community.

Subcommunities are now much tighter around a variety of influencers within the community as a whole.

And although we don’t often identify as community leaders, influencers have done a great job at keeping retail investors together.

#5. We’re Not 19 Years Old

AMC Apes Retail Investors

Contrary to what the media might think, the ape community is not made up of 19 year-olds.

In fact, majority of apes are much older than that.

But, I won’t give that information out to marketers.

The community isn’t naΓ―ve, there are a lot of wise and intelligent people with real stories and lots of experience here.

The media often times portrays us as rebellious youngsters.

But I believe many of us will actually be the future leaders of our nation.

#6. We Don’t Actually Eat Crayons, Well Sorta

apes eating crayons

Eating crayons is a taunt and is part of the ape community culture.

It’s a message to smart money that we’re dumb money, yet we’re making money while they lose it by shorting AMC and GME stock.

The meaning of eating crayons originally separated us from formally gathering as a community to buy these stocks.

“Buy and hold, but what do I know, I’m just a crayon eating ape.”

Although I must say, I wouldn’t be surprised if some apes do consume these delicious snacks πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚.

#7. “Apes Just Want To Make Quick Money”

apes don't day trade amc or gamestop

If apes wanted to make quick money, then the community would be day-trading AMC and GME stock.

However, that is not the ape way.

Apes buy and hold the stock.

Seasoned apes who got in early could have cashed out tremendous amounts of gains but continue to hold because it’s not about making a quick buck.

It’s about making life changing money through a short squeeze play.

Apes have a why.

In fact, leave a comment below what your why is.

Why do you hold AMC and/or GME stock?

#8. “Apes Worship Adam Aron and Ryan Cohen”

AMC and GameStop Partnership

The community has a tremendous amount of respect for AMC CEO, Adam Aron and GameStop Chairman, Ryan Cohen.

We support them because they’re running the businesses of America’s two favorite stocks.

We want to see them succeed, but we don’t worship them.

In fact, most apes are willing to continue investing in both companies after MOASS, especially if a dividend is announced.

#9. We’re Actually Not Jim Cramer’s Friend

Jim Cramer AMC Apes

Despite The Street’s Jim Cramer portraying to be close to the ape community, he can’t sit with us.

Few apes actually respect the guy, but he can’t sit with us.

Did I mention that?

Mr. Cramer has just contradicted himself too much and the community is huge on trust.

We have more trust for FOX’s Charles Payne and CNBC’s Melissa Lee.

#10. Apes Invest In More Than Just ‘Meme Stocks’

Apes invest in more than just meme stocks

The ape community might have a ton of new retail investors only dedicated to AMC or GME stock specifically.

However, many apes are also invested in other assets such as crypto and even NFTs.

Apes are the retail investors who are finding the early plays and putting their money to work for long-term financial gain.

Some popular crypto apes are currently invested in are Dogecoin and Shiba Inu coin.

These Retail Investors Fight For What’s Right

The AMC and GME communities are a beacon for change.

We seek to establish a fair market so that future generations no longer get taken advantage of by corrupt hedge funds and financial institutions.

I’m confident the fight for a fair market will further continue even after AMC and GME MOASS.

What else does mainstream media need to know about the community?

Why Didn’t AMC Squeeze Last Year in 2021? [Deep Dive]

Why didn't AMC squeeze last year?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze? And can it squeeze this year?

Many of you might be wondering why AMC didn’t squeeze last year in 2021.

The stock had an incredible year overall.

Retail investors who got in for a short squeeze play early came up more than 1000%!

However, these retail investors knowns as ‘apes’ continue to hold the stock into 2022.

After all, people got in for a short squeeze play, not to make a quick buck.

So, why didn’t AMC squeeze last year in 2021?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to touch topic on AMC since it’s been the most anticipated stock of all 2021. You’re going to want to stick around for this one.

Let’s get started!

AMC was one of the most searched for ticker symbols in 2021 and consistently trended on Yahoo Finance throughout the year.

Many of you aren’t new to the blog.

I was an early adopter in the AMC saga and helped a ton of people get in on this play early.

So, what was so special about buying AMC stock in 2021?

After GameStop’s share price increased to incredible levels nearing $500 per share, retail investors noticed AMC’s short interest was also high.

A high short interest meant the stock was heavily shorted therefore short sellers could be squeezed out of their positions, triggering a short squeeze (massive price flux.).

AMC experienced massive gains from $2 per share up to $20 per share.

Momentum then further escalated AMC’s share price to $72 per share before slowly cooling off to today’s price levels.

However, AMC didn’t fully squeeze last year, it merely removed small shorts from their positions during these runups.

But more on that later, let’s break down what is currently going on with AMC stock.

AMC Continues to Be Shorted

AMC Short Shares Available to borrow

AMC was one of the heaviest shorted stocks in the market last year.

Though mainstream media might claim that AMC squeezed last year, it only experienced gamma squeezes (momentum).

Because the short interest did fluctuate, we can access that some short covering did indeed occur.

However, AMC’s short interest is still relatively high.

When AMC soared to $72 per share last year the short interest dropped from 20% to 14%.

AMC’s current short interest is at 20%.

AMC Short Interest 2022

This means there’s ample room for AMC’s share price to continue surging in 2022.

Why didn’t shorts cover their positions in AMC last year?

A few short sellers did cover their short positions in AMC last year, though according to the short interest many open positions remain.

In fact, according to the short interest data, there’s approximately more than 102 million shares on loan that have yet to be closed.

Financial institutions have to close these positions at some point, and that’s whether they’re profitable or not.

Because short squeeze plays are rare, we’re learning more about their development through AMC and GameStop.

The matter of the fact is that AMC Entertainment is no longer going bankrupt so even if the share price drops below $10 and shorts cover profitable, we can expect to see a massive runup from the buying pressure happening all at once.

Why bigger shorts didn’t cover AMC last year is almost like saying why didn’t retail investors sell their stock last year.

Both retail and short sellers are going long on AMC Entertainment stock.

This means eventually individual people from both groups will begin to cave in.

And it’s an entire ecosystem of some taking profits or cutting their losses.

As AMC’s share price continues to drop in 2022, it provides short sellers with open positions in AMC from last year to finally close this year.

The results?

Massive price movements.

Market manipulation events

Market manipulation exposed
Market manipulation exposed

Retail investors who bought AMC stock last year saw a number of ways hedge funds manipulate the market.

From borrowing shares that don’t exist to short the stock, to OTC trading and dark pool trading, retail saw it all.

These predatorial strategies were used in efforts to discourage retail from further buying the stock.

Last year we saw Melvin Capital almost close if it weren’t for Citadel giving them a lifeline.

Mudrick threw in the towel and Archegos went bankrupt.

Anchorage Capital closed after 18 years; they had more than 4 million put options in AMC stock and were one of the top 10 institutional firms shorting AMC stock last year.

Another hedge fund on that list is Citadel Securites who lost billions in AMC in 2021, negatively affecting their customers.

Will this trend continue in 2022?

Leave a comment below.

How long can shorts drag not covering?

Just as retail investors can go long on a stock for many years, short sellers can also drag not covering for long periods of time.

This squeeze play will have intermittent episodes where we see some covering before new shorts open a position.

AMC Entertaiment is a hot spot for short sellers to bet against the stock and the company’s progress.

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?

Why didn't AMC Squeeze in 2021? Can AMC squeeze in 2022?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze in 2021? Can AMC still squeeze in 2022?

As AMC’s share price continues to tumble, short sellers may begin to take profits by closing their short positions.

It’s this buying pressure that will ultimately lead AMC to experience major price moves this year.

Whether these price moves will trigger a chain of short covering or not is an event that has yet to unfold.

Could AMC squeeze in 2022?

Absolutely.

But while regulators fall back on the uncovering of synthetics, for now the short interest is the only data that confirms how much potential this squeeze has.

Will AMC Stock Go Up? [2022 Deep Dive]

Will AMC stock go up?

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 20% 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 go up?

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 go up?

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

AMC Entertainment Partnerships, why AMC will go up,

AMC partnered up 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 will be releasing “GameStop: Rise of the Players” on January 28th, 2022.

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 go up 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.

Subscribe to the newsletter to get notified when AMC’s Q4 results are announced.

This should be good.

Why is AMC Stock Going Down? [3 BIG Reasons]

why is AMC stock going down?
3 Big Reasons why AMC stock is going down

AMC stock continues to have an incredible amount of demand for the stock, so why is AMC stock going down?

After all, the ape community has made it almost one whole year without selling the stock.

Shouldn’t big short sellers be closing their positions by now?

The answer is simpler than you think.

Welcome to Franknez.com – today we’re diving into 3 BIG reasons why AMC stock is going down. Here’s what you need to know.

Let’s get started!

Now, I published this same exact topic discussion on my YouTube channel so if you’re subscribed then you might have already watched it.

Either way, I will embed it at the end of the article for your viewing pleasure as it will enhance this article.

Why is AMC stock dropping?

Why is AMC dipping?

AMC stock has been dropping for a few months now.

Its steady downtrend has retail investors wondering what in the world is going on, and whether the stock will pick up again.

High rewards come with high risks, and it would be wise to remember to never overleverage your investments.

If you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, you’ll be happy to hear AMC’s share price decline is only temporary.

I said this earlier in our topic discussion on the channel; just like bull markets don’t last forever, neither do bear markets.

Eventually we’ll see a correction.

Let’s start with the first reason why AMC stock has gone down.

#1. Omicron & Covid news

Omicron news stock market

AMC stock is down due to various publishers pushing fears about Omicron and Covid news.

Now, AMC is not the only stock affected by this, the entire market has been hit because of the grim news.

Growing cases in the United States of the variant could cause businesses to have setbacks again.

Due to the uncertainty of how the variant will affect the economy, stocks are taking a massive toll from fear of the unknown.

AMC stock is down to a variety of reasons, but this economic fear is everywhere and is affecting the entire market, including the century old movie theatre chain.

#2. Adam Aron selling has driven AMC stock down

Adam Aron selling shares

Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment sold hundreds of thousands of shares, cashing in millions of dollars for his estate planning.

The admired CEO had notified shareholders of the company mid last year on his plans of doing so towards the end of the year.

Dumping hundreds of thousands of shares proved to move AMC’s stock price down as the ape community held.

While most of the community is indifferent about his decision, his actions moved AMC’s share price down significantly, especially due to a negative media.

Coverage by mainstream media only fueled this fire as more short sellers have begun to enter the play.

AMC’s short interest has risen from 16% to almost 20%!

When you combine the Covid news with bad press about the CEO taking profits, AMC’s share price is sure to take a hit as we have seen.

However, these two reasons why AMC stock is going down aren’t as big as this third one.

And I know many of you know where this is going.

#3. AMC stock continues to be heavily shorted

shorting AMC stock

Mainstream media might have painted a little picture about how AMC experienced a short squeeze last year but that’s far from the truth.

After all, these shill platforms are all tied together by News Corp., a company Citadel Securities’ Ken Griffin is invested in.

AMC stock continues to be heavily shorted even in 2022.

Hedge funds have been using market manipulation strategies to suppress the stock from squeezing them from their short positions.

These financial institutions lost billions from shorting AMC stock in hopes the company would go bankrupt in 2021.

Since then, hedge funds like Mudrick, Archegos, and Anchorage Capital, who betted against AMC Entertainment, have closed.

Big hedge funds such as Citadel Securities have not closed their short positions in AMC causing turmoil for their customers.

The multi-billion-dollar hedge fund has even received a lifeline of $1.2 billion from partners Sequoia and Paradigm, their first private funding ever.

Even as hedge funds overleverage themselves to drive AMC stock down, it’s only a matter of time before more begin to throw in the towel.

Here’s what to expect in the coming weeks

franknez.com

AMC stock and the market in general will eventually start to see a correction.

Remember, bull markets don’t last forever.

However, keep in mind that AMC stock may still drop lower in price due to various market abnormalities (i.e., Omicron news, global market risks like Evergrande, market manipulation).

Related: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

One thing is certain.

AMC’s short interest is more than high enough to squeeze shorts from their positions.

When AMC’s SI dropped from 20% to 14%, we saw the company’s share price surge from $14 to $72.

The short interest is nearing 20% again with other brokers showing much higher.

Family Offices Are Unregulated Hedge Funds [Exposed]

Family offices are unregulated hedge funds
Bill Hwang – founder of family office Archegos Capital

Incredible information has surfaced from the community in regard to unregulated hedge funds posing as family offices.

This industry holds trillions of dollars in assets globally with about 40% being held in the United States.

What’s more alarming is that these family offices aren’t regulated nor registered with the SEC (Securities Exchange Commission), allowing financial institutions to use this network of unregulated trading to their advantage.

In this article we’re going to dive deep into the seriousness of this inequality in the markets.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that protects retail investors from injustices in the markets. Today we’re discussing a loophole in the market that has been overlooked.

Let’s get started!

The inception of Archegos family office

Family offices Archegos

A well-known ‘family office’ you might have heard of is Archegos Capital, founded by Bill Hwang.

Archegos family office had $120 billion total exposure according to Credit Suisse Report, causing $10 billion in trading losses to the world’s largest banks.

Two of which included Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley.

Bill Hwang was mentored by hedge fund expert Julian Robertson from Tiger Asia Management and Tiger Asia Partners, a hedge fund that was shut down by the U.S in 2012 for insider trading and manipulating Chinese stocks.

After getting banned from the investment advisory industry and a $44 million settlement with the SEC, Bill Hwang set up his family office, Archegos Capital.

Already with a history in crime, Bill Hwang’s family office was able to get away with several billions of dollars in stock positions due to the lack of regulatory measures.

The Archegos incident is currently known as one of the largest public margin calls in family offices, for now that is.

This shadow industry manages twice more assets than hedge funds registered with the SEC.

Family offices managing trillions in assets

Family Offices trillions in assets
Private offices own approximately twice in assets than hedge funds

Family offices are an unregulated corner of the financial marketplace with an estimated $6 to $7 trillion in assets under management (compared to $3.4 trillion in global hedge funds), via. Inequality.

Archegos revealed that family offices can create systemic risk due to their size, lack of regulation, and growing interest in ‘speculative investments’.

These growing interests in speculative investments may include the shorting of so called ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC and GameStop.

Hedge funds have been overleveraging their short positions in these stocks speculating the companies would go bankrupt shortly after the pandemic.

However, retail investors buying and holding the stock have caused hedge funds betting against these companies to lose billions of dollars.

To refrain from causing their clients further turmoil, we’ve seen an incredible amount of shorting happen in these stocks.

Anomalies in the stocks derive from either naked shorting, a network of unregulated trading, or both.

Hedge funds have used an array of loopholes to suppress the stock price of both AMC and GameStop to minimize consequential losses.

And the retail community is making a lot of noise.

Why aren’t these family offices regulated?

SEC

Those in favor of family offices believe light oversight is justified because these offices only serve private families.

Because they are not serving multiple clients, they believe these offices should not be subject to scrutiny.

Should these businesses be regulated and registered with the SEC?

I’d love to know your thoughts, leave a comment below.

The good news is that we have a New York Congresswoman by the name of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from the House Financial Committee, introducing a bill that would fight to regulate these family offices.

She’s introducing HR 4620, the Family Office Regulation Act of 2021.

After the massive liquidation from Archegos Capital, regulators are seeking to gain access to private information from these family offices in order to mitigate risk.

Hedge funds have incredible access to market manipulation

Market manipulation

Hedge fund industry expert, Charles Gradante has mentioned market makers are in favor of short selling.

In an infinite pool of access to capital from banks, the feds, and family offices, it’s going to take much more than the SEC to regulate the market.

New systems must be put into place, organizations, and activist groups to speak on the matter publicly.

The retail community holding ‘meme stocks’ has sparked a movement to raise awareness surrounding the market manipulation from all complicit parties.

These offices have also moved into the crypto market which could explain the massive liquidity we’re seeing today.

Hedge funds and private offices need to be regulated to prevent market manipulation and systemic risk.

While retail investors bet on the rise and well-being of a company, financial institutions suppress the growth of stocks, posing a major threat to our economy.

China banned Citadel Securities due to “malicious short-selling”, the United States needs to do the same thing.

These massive hedge funds have an incredible network to overleverage their short positions in emerging and growing companies.

Private offices create an extension for hedge funds to short stocks without reporting their positions to the SEC.

And while not all family offices are a loophole for hedge funds, the ‘ape community’ continues to be right.

“Dumb Money” Gained More Than 1200% in AMC Stock Last Year

AMC Dumb Money 2022
Should you invest in AMC stock in 2022?

Dumb money may not be so dumb after all.

The group referred to as “dumb money” ended up making significant gains in 2021 from AMC stock.

Retail investors who got in early made a whopping 1200% return in their investment with the share price only sitting at $27 per share.

Those who traded the stock back in June made nearly 3000% in return when AMC reached $72 per share.

Is dumb money actually dumb?

Here’s what’s next.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the ape community made a ruckus last year and has become a beacon for change in the markets. There’s a lot going on this year and a lot more money to be made.

Let’s get started!

AMC stock took the internet by a storm all of 2021.

It was on the top 10 list of most searched words on Google, and it was the most searched ticker symbol in the markets.

Why did AMC get so much traction?

The story is incredible.

The Data Showed These Possibilities

AMC Short Squeeze Data

You might wonder, how the heck did this stock provide investors with more than 1200% in returns?

The truth is a small group of retail investors on Reddit’s r/wallstreetbets found data that predicted it to do so.

In fact, the data says AMC can still rise much higher than its climb to $72 per share.

See, we knew two things.

AMC stock was heavily shorted, and short sellers (investors betting against the stock), eventually needed to cover.

This meant that as retail investors bought the stock, the demand for it would increase the price, causing a short squeeze (massive price influx).

The people on the opposite side of the spectrum were hedge funds, financial institutions who lost billions of dollars betting the stock would go down.

In the midst of pursuing one of the biggest trades in history, retail investors were able to save AMC Entertainment from going bankrupt.

The century old movie theatre chain raised more than $2 billion dollars in cash and began innovating ever since.

Mainstream media fought hard

What surprised retail investors is how much mainstream media actually cared about their finances.

Finance media warned investors to stay clear from the stock, eventually attacking the company and anyone who invested in it.

The Fool, MarketWatch, Benzinga, Yahoo Finance, and other finance media began attacking the ‘ape community’.

Come to find out there was a massive conflict of interest given that all these news platforms were tied to News Corp., a company indirectly owned by the biggest hedge fund shorting AMC stock, Citadel Securities.

While mainstream media might have been able to scare a few people from their money, the ape community persisted to educate the public.

My platform introduced hundreds of thousands of people to AMC stock, and now millions.

YouTubers such as Trey’s Trades and Matt Kohrs used their channels to expose the data that triggered millions of retail investors to buy the stock.

As an early adopter, my blog has educated the public on the data that predicted these price moves and has fought for a fair market through investigative journalism.

Is the AMC short squeeze over?

The AMC short squeeze is not over, AMC’s reported short interest is still very high.

Although you cannot buy the stock at $2 or $5 anymore, entry at $25-$27 is very cheap compared to where the price can still go.

AMC’s share price rose from $14 to $72 when the short interest dropped from 20% to 14%.

The short interest is currently at 17% meaning shorts have opened new positions.

And as long as there are this many shorts betting against AMC, they have locked in positions to be squeezed out of.

Third wave price predictions are looking at AMC trading at hundreds of dollars per share.

As retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock en masse, AMC will continue to set new all-time highs (ATH).

Should you buy AMC stock in 2022?

“Dumb money” is still buying AMC Stock in 2022 – AMC Short squeeze 2022

There are conditions to buying AMC stock in 2022.

First, be willing to invest money you can afford to lose because nothing is certain in the markets.

The stock market is a very institution-oriented device and still very much plays in the favor of banks and hedge funds alike.

Your risk tolerance will play a massive role in this trade but could very well be worth it.

To take things into perspective, majority of the community who got into AMC last year is still holding the stock even though they can cash out massive gains.

The reason being is conviction.

AMC has so much more potential, and we are all excited to see it come to fruition this new year.

If this sounds like it could be a play for you then you might want to consider it.

Opportunities like this don’t come very often.

I guess dumb money wasn’t very dumb after all.

TD Ameritrade Reports 40.25% AMC Short Interest

TD Ameritrade AMC Short Interest Glitch

Screenshots from TD Ameritrade have come up on Twitter of AMC’s short interest at 40.25%.

Ortex is reporting AMC to have a short interest of 16.99%.

So where is TD Ameritrade pulling up this information from?

They actually have a response to that.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the ape community has mentioned from time to time that a lot of the data provided by financial institutions is skewed. Here’s an example that happening right now.

“Our news and research is provided by Third Party Vendors”

So, why is this short interest data important?

Retail investors rely on the short interest data to determine how much of a company’s float is being shorted.

The short interest that Ortex is reporting is significantly less than that of TD Ameritrade’s.

TD Ameritrade’s short interest data is more than double that of Ortex.

Short interest data also enables us to see how much ‘squeeze potential‘ there is in a heavily shorted stock.

At least to a certain degree.

So if we have sources reporting masked or hidden short interest data, it’s deceit in many accounts.

Or is this simply a glitch from TD Ameritrade?

The ape community is questioning why ticker symbol AMC is the only stock that has had a significant number of glitches throughout the year.

Or are the real numbers being masked to divert the public from jumping in on this short squeeze play.

Afterall, hedge funds have begun closing, with many losing billions this year.

Where is this data coming from?

The data comes from MorningStar but both TD Ameritrade and ETrade experienced this anomaly in their system.

TD Ameritrade AMC Short Interest 40.25
TD Ameritrade AMC Short Interest 40.25

According to TD Ameritrade, this was a glitch in their system.

However, the data would have not been changed unless the retail community pointed it out.

Was this a mistake on their end that retail was not supposed to see?

Or was this legit one of several glitches that has been occurring specifically for AMC Entertainment stock?

I’d love to know your thoughts in the comment section below.

The broker is stating their technology team is working to correct the information but have no ETA as to when the correct data will be restored.

Why so many glitches with AMC stock?

AMC Entertainment has been experiencing several glitches throughout 2021.

They have varied from skewed data such as the short interest, to chart patterns, and even share price.

The ape community has concluded over the months that AMC’s short interest data is significantly higher than what is being displayed.

Lou from the YouTube channel has even concluded that AMC’s share price is being masked and could be in the hundreds to even thousands of dollars per share.

Now, while these are rather extreme claims, it’s not difficult to understand why such claims have been made.

AMC is one of the most overleveraged stocks from hedge funds shorting it.

Millions upon millions of shares have been borrowed to short it all year.

The feds have now begun investigating short selling practices and are tackling hedge funds who pose systemic risk.

As more hedge funds close, and others continue to bleed their customers, retail investors suspect they will do everything in their power to deceive retail from squeezing them from their short positions.

An interesting narrative, but a very likely one just as much.

What other glitches have you seen in AMC stock?

Out of the several glitches that have occurred, what other glitches do you recall seeing in AMC Entertainment stock?
