6 Things Retail Investors Holding AMC Stock Should Know

6 things retail investors holding AMC stock should know

Community, today I want to provide some advice from someone who’s been holding AMC stock since February. I’m going to be providing new retail investors as well as seasoned apes with some real talk regarding AMC. This is not financial advice. Ape to ape talk.

Here are 6 things retail investors holding AMC stock should know.

amc stock franknez.com

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

Lets get started!

Investing in AMC stock has been a battle. A lot of us have sparked new relationships and connected with genuine people.

I’m publishing this article today because I care about the community and I want to help guide new retail investors. Here are some things I wish we would have been told from the get go.

#1. Detach your emotions from AMC stock

One thing I learned fairly quickly when I first started investing in AMC was to detach myself emotionally from the stock. There were days where I would be moody so to speak because the stock wasn’t having a green day.

It’s easy to get coiled with emotions. Especially when you have a reason for this investment. Your why per say. But it’s childish and we’re not children. We’re grown adults.

When I detached myself emotionally from the stock, I found myself being able to become more productive for my family. At some point you have to pull yourself out and participate level headed. Something beautiful is occurring, just be sure you detach your emotions from the stock so it doesn’t impact your daily life negatively or render you from being productive.

Smile at the wins, but don’t let them get to your head either. Trust in your conviction and data at hand, and trust the process.

#2. Shun negative people

If you haven’t come across these type of people yet you will at some point. There’s a lot of angry retail investors who who got in late in GameStop and were left bag holding for example.

These people are hurt and target people in the AMC community. I saw this occur for a few months at the beginning. Not everyone is like this of course, but there are naysayers who will try to put you down.

Today, it seems like AMC and GME apes have more of a mutual respect now more than ever. However, bots and shills are still a very real pest within the community. My advice to you is to ignore these type of people.

If you see someone being bullied then stand up for them. You may speak out if it’s too protect a fellow member of the community. This is why I began publishing DD on my platform. I couldn’t stand seeing the community being bullied by the mainstream media.

If you have power to remove negative people via Discord, Reddit, Facebook groups, etc. then have the courage to do so.

#3. The market manipulation is real

This game isn’t for the soft. Retail investors must know that there will be situations from which are completely out of your control. The stress may sometimes get real.

The reason being is that although you might have already detached your emotions from the stock, other entities have an unfair advantage over retail investors. Oh well, life is unfair sometimes. We simply have to play with the cards we’ve been dealt with.

Fortunately for new retail investors, a lot of this market manipulation in AMC stock is now becoming public. This was in the shadows for us many months back. Apes must not focus too much on the things that are out of our control. We must focus on the things that are in our control, such as our attitudes and resilience towards this common goal.

I strongly believe that the good guys will always win. There’s no option for those in power but to hear the community out. You saw what occurred back in 2020 when the community and world united against the injustice of our police force in the United States. We have more power than you know.

Be strong and move past the things that are out of our control.

#4. Don’t invest more than you can afford to lose

I like to think most people have this one down. There is risk involved here. There is always risk involved whether you’re betting on a stock to either go up or down.

Hedge funds have risked their play too and unfortunately for them they’re getting burned. My suggestion is to only invest what you can afford to lose. My conviction in this stock is so strong that I truly believe you cannot lose on this trade unless you’re completely careless. The only reasons you’d lose on this trade is if you sold and cut your losses or you didn’t do any research at all.

The information is out there. Take the time to read it and digest the content. Educate yourself so you can make the best financial decision for yourself and your family.

Never use a credit card to invest. This is playing with money that’s not yours and it’s going to end up biting you if you do this. I mean look at the hedgies. If you’re going to add to your position, make sure you can pay your bills first.

#5. Share positive content with the community

Change happens when enough people get loud and spread a message. When you see FUD articles from the mainstream media don’t share it. Instead, find other content that completely rebuttals it with straight facts.

If you see an article, document, or video within the community that proves to be valuable to the movement, be sure to share it. You make a tremendous difference when you do.

This courage is what allows the community to grow and presents more people with opportunities like AMC and GME plays. Once this chapter is over there will be more chapters. You more than likely were introduced to AMC stock through FrankNez articles, Trey’s Trades videos, or from someone else in the community.

When the media attacks our community we must attack back with factual information. We cannot let the lies and manipulation shake off our new fellow members. Protect the community by sharing positive content within the community. Memes included ☝.

#6. Success requires patience

This trade with AMC stock will be successful. It’s inevitable. However, success always requires patience.

Seasoned apes are profitable at the moment. This took 4-5 months of holding the stock though. Some of us are up thousands to tens of thousands of dollars and even up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. But guess what? We’re still holding the stock.

Why? Because our conviction in AMC is strong and we have complete and utter trust in the process. The data speaks for itself; numbers don’t lie. If there’s something that new retail investors can learn from seasoned apes it should be to be patient.

When AMC hits $100 per share you will be profitable and seasoned apes will be even more profitable. But be patient. This movement is not betting on $100. This squeeze will be astronomical and it will require the community to be patient. The move up to $100 will all be fundamental and hype; this will not be the squeeze. When the squeeze happens, you will know.

Feds Hunt For $720 Billion Dollars From Reverse Repo

fed reserve repo amc

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

franknez.com AMC

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

Lets get started!

What is a reverse repo?

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

How does this connect with AMC?

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

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

The Federal Reserve is stepping in

Fed Reverse Repo Chart
Fed Reverse Repo Chart

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

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

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

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

Will hedge funds be able to pay back the feds?

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

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

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

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

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

Key Points

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

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

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

Will AMC finally squeeze?

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

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

AMC Stock – Feds are done with hedgies

Trey’s Trades – Fed reverse repo

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

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

And lastly. . .

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

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

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

Here’s Why People Are Buying AMC Stock: Investors Guide

Here's why people are buying AMC stock

Not investing in the stock market yet? Click here to learn how!

By now you’ve probably heard all the hype surrounding AMC Entertainment. If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I’ve been covering AMC since the beginning of February.

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

My goal is to help guide you in your journey to becoming financially free.

franknez.com AMC news

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

Lets get started!

Why are people investing in AMC stock?

AMC stock 
AMC Entertainment
AMC movie theater

People have the chance of a lifetime.

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

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

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

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

AMC is currently the heaviest shorted stock in the market

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

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

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

Here’s an example of short selling

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

AMC stock is going up, what happens then?

AMC stock is going up

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

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

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

Read: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recently, there’s been a surge of new retail investors buying AMC stock. This increase moved AMC up to $15.50 after hours. Short sellers eventually drove the price back down to the $12 range; however, seasoned retail investors aren’t phased. AMC stock is currently trading around $57.00 now. The stock continues to go up.

The data shows a MOASS

MOASS, mother of all short squeezes.

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

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

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

Markets are being liquidated

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

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

Proposal ICC-007 APPROVED

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

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

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

An abundant opportunity

amc money

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

“Beware of the stock” (paid) articles

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

Is it too late to buy AMC stock?

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

Naked Shorting is Making it’s Way to Mainstream Media

Naked shorting AMC

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

Franknez.com

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

Lets get started!

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

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

What is naked shorting?

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

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

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

CNBC on naked shorting / Melissa Lee

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

Melissa Lee Naked Shorting AMC CNBC

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

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

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

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

Jefferies Prime Brokerage blocks short sellers

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

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

FOX Business on naked shorting

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

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

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

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

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

Naked short selling and FTDs

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

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

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

What can the community do about the manipulation?

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

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

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

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

Lives are about to change for the new and seasoned holder in AMC stock. With a surge of retail investors in the stock, the SEC is finally cracking down on hedge funds. AMC community, you were loud and they heard you. Here’s why I think there’s an AMC margin call right around the corner.

franknez.com

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

Lets get started!

I recently published an article exposing the ‘lobbied SEC’. The lack of regulation on short positions in AMC has been ignored for too long. Many of you shared this post on Twitter and used the hashtag #SECdoyourjob. I’m confident they saw YOU. So thank you for standing up for change because you got their attention.

Everything is falling right into place for AMC Entertainment stock

everything is falling into place for AMC entertainment stock

Hedge funds betting against this stock are destined to lose. Here’s why:

  • AMC’s fundamentals are no longer fragile. Retail investors and institutions alike are buying the stock. AMC Entertainment is experiencing a surge in sales revenue now that the movie theater franchise is open.
  • Shorts betting against the stock have bitten more than they can chew by continuously shorting AMC stock through the use of synthetic shares.
  • Regulators are now taking the necessary precautions to ensure they don’t lose money as hedge funds continue betting against a soaring and bullish stock.

Retail investors now have the higher floor. The CEO of AMC Entertainment is in touch with his shareholders. Celebrities such as Chance the Rapper have publicly announced the opportunity of this investment. And more people are learning how to invest in the stock market through the platforms such as Franknez.com and other subreddit communities.

Wanna know what hedge funds have? Absolutely no respect nor support.

ICC-2021-007 proposal gets APPROVED

ICC-2021-007 proposal
SEC AMC

This is huge news for retail investors holding AMC. This document is 9 pages long but I’ve done the DD to help you understand what this proposal means for AMC and how it can trigger a short squeeze.

Approved on 5/18

Many retail investors have been curious as to what this proposal means and why it’s such great news for AMC. This article is going to provide you with a quick rundown of this new proposal and will be updated as new margin call news begin to develop.

1. Flexibility on margin requirements

This proposal provides brokers with flexibility on margin requirements for institutions (hedge funds) maintaining a position in risky plays, such as a short position in AMC.

If brokers feel a short position is too risky then they can raise the amount of equity required in an account.

2. Regulators request collateral

The proposal ensures regulators have some sort of collateral from all the shorting that’s been occurring. Regulators want to make sure that hedge funds have enough cash reserves to meet their minimum equity requirement

Risk management is the biggest takeaway from this proposal.

Related: How high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

Margin calls everywhere

Regulators are going to start raising margins depending on how risky the plays are for certain institutions. Their purpose is to limit the amount of leverage hedge funds are able to use. The ICC does not want to be responsible for closing out closing hedge funds’ positions.

This is where we can begin to see shorts cover their positions. If an accounts updated margin exceeds the accounts capital, the broker can either margin call them (cover some risk) or completely liquidate their positions until the margin no longer exceeds the capital.

Overleveraged accounts could get margin called

Margin call

Now, because hedge funds shorting AMC are betting against a bullish stock that only knows up, shorting the stock at the moment is ultra risky. Regulators are going to start demanding higher margin requirements as collateral.

Short sellers are sitting on nearly $1 billion dollars in loses, via REUTERS. A margin call usually occurs when an investment suffers enough losses that the investors margin account goes below a certain amount.

If hedge funds shorting AMC fail to meet a margin call requirement then the broker can begin liquidating their assets without notice. Regulators will only step in to liquidate accounts if hedge funds continue to take a nosedive in loses.

Furthermore, hedge funds are drowning every day retail investors hold the stock.

Expect a surge in price action and volatility

Retail investors can expect a surge in price action in AMC as well as volatility. Hedge funds are still borrowing shares to short the stock meaning they have ammo in their arsenal to drive the price down during upticks.

Shorts are going to begin covering their positions as the stock continues to skyrocket and as margin requirements are increased. A short squeeze is inevitable. Retail investors need to hold, stay the course, and be patient.

Citadel buys AMC stock

Citadel buys AMC stock

Citadel just recently bought AMC stock leaving many retail investors curious behind their motive.

Will they try to reduce their loses through a debit and credit scenario where they’re forced to close their positions but also break even from a squeeze?

Or is their motive to sell and disrupt AMC’s short squeeze? Citadel’s motives will become clear as this squeeze begins to unfold.

Why do I think Citadel is going long on AMC?

The entire market is crashing. These institutions are beginning to deleverage. Pretty soon there’s going to be margin calls liquidating accounts left and right. I think Citadel bought AMC long in order to keep the stocks value. They know they’re losing and they know AMC is now a value play.

A margin call will ensure they have no money left so I personally think AMC is Citadels collateral, or emergency fund post squeeze.

AMC Stock: Retail Investors Now Own The Float

AMC stock: retail investors now own the float

The CEO and President of AMC Entertainment, Adam Aron, just tweeted that retail investors now own more than 80% of AMC’s float. This is astonishing.

If you’re holding AMC stock then you my friend have something very valuable in your possession. Retail investors literally own AMC Entertainment right now. This surge in price action we’ve seen so far is simply momentum. Shorts eventually have to buy the stock back and we won’t have to sell it; inevitably moving the price up even more. Hold apes. This is about to moon.

AMC stock Franknez.com

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

Lets get started!

I’ve noticed a lot of sentiment from the community. Apes who’ve been holding their position in AMC for months now, aren’t phased by red days. However, new retail investors getting in on this trade are quick to express their concerns.

This is only normal. It’s up to us to educate and inform new retail investors on what’s going on so they can determine their own conviction towards this trade. Today’s article is going to simply be a message and reminder to the community that all is well.

The data speaks for itself

One thing I’d like to remind seasoned apes along with the new retail investors is that the data speaks for itself.

What do we know? AMC Entertainment is being heavily shorted and as long as it is, shorts can be squeezed out. We know that the manipulation in the market is real and it’s only helping short sellers prolong the inevitable.

Short sellers still have to cover their positions and retail investors hold majority of it. Supply and demand baby.

Seasoned apes aren’t going anywhere

Retail investors who have been holding AMC stock since February continue to hold. New retail investors getting in on this trade worry older apes will take profits.

Why aren’t seasoned retail investors taking profits on tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars right now? That’s because AMC’s stock price is no where near its potential.

We aren’t looking at the profit we’ve made on paper. We are not looking at short term gains. The data we’ve been shown by technical analysists point towards a short squeeze. We’re not there yet.

AMC’s chart is fundamentally healthy. We haven’t seen any wild volatility but rather ascending and consolidating levels of support.

The community is prepared for the squeeze and believe me you’ll know when it begins to happen. AMC’s price action is getting comfortable in the double digits before it moves up to triple digits.

The stock market is a device for transferring money from the impatient to the patient

I want to remind the community to remember your why. I’ve been fortunate enough to hear a lot of your stories. Most of us are taking this opportunity for bigger and better opportunity.

This is a reminder that this is real, it’s happening, and it will require your patience. Certain days will be green, some will be red; or on discount. Detach yourself emotionally from the price. Practice this and the ride will be much easier.

What is Margin Call in Stocks? AMC Saga

What is margin call in stocks? AMC stock
What is margin call in stocks? AMC stock

I’ve taken notice many new retail investors aren’t familiar with what a margin call is yet. This term is used a lot within the AMC community when referring to hedge funds.

I’m going to explain what a margin call is in simple ape language and further explain how this relates to hedge funds shorting AMC stock.

Franknez.com what is a margin call?

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

Lets get started!

I want to begin by saying thank you to the community who’s been reading and sharing my articles with new retail investors. You’ve been able to help out so many people and without you none of this possible.

What is a margin call?

A margin call occurs when the value of an investors brokerage account falls below the broker’s required amount. This is when a broker demands that an investor deposits additional money into their account so that it meets the minimum requirement.

A margin call is usually an indicator that a security (asset) held in the margin account has decreased in value. When a margin call occurs, the investor must either add funds to their account or liquidate (sell) some of their assets in that account.

Why does a margin call occur?

  • It may occur when an account runs low on funds usually as a result of a losing trade
  • A margin call occurs when a demand for additional capital is required to meet the minimum margin requirement
  • Brokers may force traders to sell assets, no matter the current market price, in order to meet the margin requirement if the trader does not deposit the funds

How does a margin call work for short sellers (hedge funds)?

Short sellers will always have a margin requirement because their practice involves selling a stock that is borrowed an not owned.

This means that short sellers will always be required to fund their accounts and meet the minimum margin requirement.

If the value of the position falls below the margin requirement, short sellers will be forced to close their positions or increase funds into their account.

Short sellers face major heat

Seeing as AMC has never been this high before, short sellers are more than likely already funding their accounts so they don’t fall below margin requirements. This means Kenny is taking money out of his pocket to keep his short position open in AMC and other so called ‘meme stocks’.

AMC’s highest share price was in the low to mid $30 dollar range back in 2016 before this squeeze play. This means hedge funds and short sellers have negative balances at the moment. Right now they’re feeding their accounts from their pockets.

Retail investors vs short sellers

Retail investors have the upper hand right now. Short sellers are losing a lot of money on paper, and in reality. It really is a game of who caves in first. The AMC community may continue to surge the share price as long as the stock is being bought and held.

Short sellers will be forced to put money from their pockets into their margin accounts or close out their entire position, so as long as the share price continues to keep them negative.

The result? A short squeeze.

When will short sellers be margin called?

Short sellers can be margin called at any given moment. I wouldn’t be surprised if some accounts were already margin called, forcing the investor to fund their account above the margin requirement.

How will we know when shorts begin to cover their positions in AMC?

AMC’s share price will be experiencing several gamma squeezes driving the price action up. These movements will be incremental and much smaller than an actual short squeeze. AMC’s short squeeze will be violent. Hedge funds with a lot of money can hold their positions much longer than individual investors short selling the stock.

When large institutions shorting AMC stock begin covering their positions, we’ll begin to experience the start of a short squeeze.

Retail investors participating in this once in a lifetime trade must continue to do what they’ve already known for months. The tide has turned and soon AMC’s short squeeze will begin to unfold.

AMC Stock is Up 2600% And It’s Only the Beginning

AMC stock is up 2600% and it's only the beginning
AMC stock soars with volume and fundamentals. Short sellers have yet to cover

AMC Entertainment stock has a Fintel score of 99 of 100 for a short squeeze. AMC stock is up more than 2600% year-to-date and shorts haven’t even begun to cover their positions.

What does this mean for the average retail investor? You can still get in, but hurry before this rocket flies past Pluto.

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

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

Lets get started!

Contrary to what the mainstream financial platforms are advising, AMC Entertainment stock is only getting warmed up.

AMC stock is the #1 stock in the market right now. It’s also the most held stock in the market at the moment. AMC Entertainment’s market cap is currently sitting at 28.2 billion.

AMC also has a massive opportunity to move from the small cap Russell 2000 to the large-cap Russell 1000.

Will AMC stock keep going up?

AMC Entertainment stock will continue to fundamentally rise due to an increase in retail investors buying the stock. Gamma squeeze after gamma squeeze should put AMC’s stock price above $100 once we break the $80 level.

Once AMC’s stock price passes $100 I don’t doubt we could start to see short sellers begin to close out their positions. AMC is currently trading at $55.

New retail investors getting in on AMC right now are going to make money no matter what.

AMC is extremely bullish

AMC Entertainment has no means of becoming a penny stock again. The cinema industry is picking up the pace with new movie titles out-earning one other.

The company has raised billions in capital and any talk about dilution actually plays in AMC Entertainment’s favor. AMC’s fundamentals and positive news continue to be a support for retail investors holding the stock.

AMC’s volume is mainly being driven by the data that heavily supports an upcoming short squeeze. Majority of the AMC community has been holding their position since early February. This batch of retail investors are now seeing massive gains but aren’t selling.

New retail investors join the fight

New retail investors might be curious as to whether AMC’s share price will continue to rise. If you just joined the community of apes you’re more than likely under by a few dollars per share or up some.

Good news is you don’t have to worry. AMC Entertainment has a better setup than it did when we were holding months back. You’re in a safer zone than most of us were.

My advise to new retail investors joining the cause is to be patient and enjoy the ride. Yes there’s manipulation going on in the market but the community is making enough noise now to get our voice heard.

The greatest transfer of wealth in history

The greatest transfer of wealth in history AMC

Our generation is going to experience one of the greatest transfers of wealth in history. Overleveraged hedge funds are now being investigated. It’s only a matter of time before they get margin called and are forced to close their positions. The result? A massive short squeeze that’s been overdue for quite some time now.

Why is the media trying to scare people out of their money?

It seems recently the mainstream media has been both hot and cold about AMC. I think they’re beginning to see there’s no way they can sweep this under the rug anymore. Especially since more people are starting a position in AMC Entertainment.

Nonetheless, the media continues to scare people out of their money by advising people to avoid it or invest in something else. Now why would they do that? Simple. They’re hedge fund affiliates and get paid to write FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) articles.

The truth is an AMC short squeeze is inevitable

AMC short squeeze score fintel

Shorts keep borrowing shares to drive AMC’s stock price down. The number of short shares available has increased to 700,000, via Fintel.

The SEC seems to be taking things a little more seriously now too. FOX Business published a headline regarding the SEC charging a trading firm with naked short selling.

Naked short selling is the illegal practice of trading shares that are not available/exist to trade.

With that being said, AMC’s growing community continues to be heard. Once hedge funds are forced to close their short positions we can expect a violent short squeeze to come from it.

Media Tries To Scare People Out of Their Money: AMC Saga

Media tries to scare people out of their money: AMC saga

The media doesn’t want you to know this because their partners are going to lose a lot of money. AMC Entertainment is the #1 stock in the market right now.

AMC stock is currently up over 1200% this year and hedge funds have lost billions of dollars due to heavily shorting the stock.

While hedge funds such as Citadel and Melvin Capital were profiting with the aim to bankrupt AMC Entertainment, new movie titles are breaking pandemic records netting millions in revenue.

One thing short sellers must understand is that they cannot remove the theatrical experience people yearn for when a new movie comes out.

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

Lets get started!

Why doesn’t the media want the public investing in AMC?

Articles spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) are produced by the media who are affiliate partners to wealthy hedge funds.

The media fails to mention that AMC Entertainment is a ticking time bomb for a short squeeze. And no AMC did not mention to its investors they’re going to lose money. This headline is the epitome of FUD and manipulation.

What is a short squeeze?

A short squeeze occurs when a stocks share price skyrockets up to astronomical numbers.

When a short squeeze occurs, hedge funds lose billions of dollars and may go bankrupt (most get bailed). Unfortunately, these hedge funds take money from pensions and other retirement accounts in order to cover their positions.

AMC has a short squeeze score of 99.93 out of 100 via. Fintel.

AMC short squeeze score fintel

What will an AMC short squeeze mean for retail investors?

If you bought AMC stock back in February, you’re more than likely up several thousands to tens of thousands of dollars or more depending on your position.

AMC’s stock is up more than 1200% due to the companies fundamentals and a surge in retail share purchases. The media has attempted to mislead the public by announcing the stock squeezed.

However, AMC’s stock has not squeezed. Short sellers have not covered their positions yet. This momentum is a combination of an increase in retail investors buying the stock and positive AMC Entertainment news regarding the success of new movie titles and earnings.

Is it too late to buy AMC Entertainment stock?

An AMC short squeeze essentially has no ceiling. Technical analysists predict AMC’s share price can squeeze up to the thousands of dollars per share and even reach crypto price numbers.

The reason being is that hedge funds have overleveraged their positions so much that when it comes time to close out those positions, they will lose billions of dollars more while AMC’s stock price skyrockets to the moon.

We don’t know how many counterfeit shares hedge funds have been borrowing, but we do know that they have been heavily involved in the illegal practice of naked shorting. This strategy is essentially borrowing and trading shares they don’t own to drive the price down.

If you plan on buying AMC stock I strongly suggest you get involved with the community who is spreading this knowledge. The motive is very simple. Retail investors known as ‘apes’ are buying the stock when the price drops, and holding it through lows and gains.

The goal is financial freedom and our movie theaters back.

Why is the media trying to manipulate you?

Hedge funds understand that we are about to go through one of the biggest transfers of wealth in history.

They will do everything in their power to disrupt the community of retail investors sharing DD (due diligence), and mislead the public using bogus headlines. The media cannot scare people out of their money. The community is smarter and stronger than that.

How to prepare for the greatest wealth transfer in history

Forbes published a very good article last year that has key points to what’s occurring today with AMC Entertainment and the stock market.

They mention one-third of Americans will be hit hard by the recession, one-third will barely be able to maintain their lifestyle, and one-third of Americans will get richer.

Forbes warns that the stock market is artificially inflated with the printing of money and automated deposits from retirement accounts. “Hedge funds will sell short and take those dollars”.

Shorts will take pension money in order to begin covering their short positions. Ladies and gentlemen, AMC is the most shorted stock in the market and hedge funds have yet to cover. The stock market and crypto market tanked due to hedge funds liquidating (or taking profits) from their positions. I know people who’ve lost their entire 401k’s back in 2008, and people are taking it out now for this trade.

The greatest transfer of wealth in history is about to take place.

How can the public become aware?

Share this post, share the knowledge. There’s a lot of amazing content creators in the community covering this on YouTube.

I’ve published several posts to help new retail investors joining the fight for their financial freedom become educated with what’s occurring.

If you’ve never invested in the stock market before, you’ll have to open a brokerage account and fund it first. Once you set this up it’s relatively easy to purchase your first shares in the market.

I never planned on covering AMC. I thought the trade was going to be simple. But when I saw the community was being bullied, I knew deep down I had to stand up.

A Message to The SEC on Fails To Deliver (AMC)

A message to the SEC on failed to delivers AMC
Franknez.com

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

Disruption. Disruption in the finance world. New age retail investors have taken notice of the corrupt ways of our predecessors. Yes, predecessors. We’re stepping in now. Here’s to a better world.

I want to begin by saying I’m not a financial advisor. But I strongly believe in the power of finance, knowledge, and freedom.

franknez.com AMC FTDs fails to deliver

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

Lets get started.

I want to dive into FTDs and provide new retail investors as well as the ape community with valuable information that’s easy to read and pick up. And as you can tell from the title of the post, this message is also to address the ones who should be doing their jobs.

This post is going to be relating to what’s going on with FTDs and AMC Entertainment. Let me walk you through the basics first before we dive in deep and uncover what’s really going on with AMC right now. By the time I was finished writing this article I realized we have the knowledge and power for real change as long as we continue to stick together.

Thank you for being here today.

What is a fail to deliver?

A failure to deliver is a situation where one party in a trading contract does not deliver on their obligation.

These trading contracts can be in the form of purchasing shares, call options, etc. An FTD simply means a submitted purchase did not execute, or go through.

By now you’ve probably heard there’s a ton of these FTDs circulating AMC. We’ll get more into that very soon, I promise.

So, what causes failure to delivers?

There are two primary reasons why failure to delivers occur.

  1. A buyer (retail investor) does not have enough money to pay for the transaction.
  2. A seller (short position) does not own all or any of the underlying assets meaning they cannot make the delivery.

*I want to point out that failure to delivers can also occur if there’s a technical problem in the settlement process carried out by the clearing house.

Citadel is Robinhood’s clearing house… They process settlements from investors trading with Robinhood. And as most of you know, Robinhood halted the purchasing of GameStop and AMC stock back in February. The announcement was made on Thursday, January 28th that they were limiting the trade of both GameStop and AMC stock.

Though Citadel has claimed in court that they had no role in Robinhood’s decision to halt buying, they are one of the biggest hedge funds shorting both AMC and GME stock.

Hedge funds should not have this much power.

Clearing houses should be neutral and only handle transactions. Their job should be to report illicit activities to the SEC. The power hedge funds have must be distributed amongst branches so that they oversee each other and ensure no one branch is too powerful.

Sound familiar?

What’s causing failure to delivers in AMC?

I strongly doubt retail investors lack the spending power to meet their number of share goals. What’s causing AMC failure to delivers has more to do with the processing of synthetic shares and lack of regulation.

What we’re seeing here is:

  1. Clearing houses cannot process the orders due to shorts and hedge funds not having possession of those assets.
  2. An insane amount of naked shares (synthetics) are being used to drive AMC’s stock price down.

You would think some sort of agency would be created to oversee this manipulation right? I’ll get to that shortly.

What is naked short selling?

Naked short selling is the process of shorting a stock without first borrowing the asset from someone else or ensuring that it’s available to borrow.

In other words, it’s fairy dust. Non existent, not real. Straight manipulation.

Is naked shorting illegal?

Naked shorting is considered to be illegal though firms who have used this technique to bankrupt businesses have never seen accountability due to succeeding in doing so. In other words, they’ve been able to wash their hands once a businesses has been taken off the grid.

However, AMC is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy. AMC is no longer going extinct. Naked shorting this company is not going to make its retail investors disappear and it’s certainly not going to stop Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment from moving the business forward.

I’m confident hedge funds naked shorting AMC are certain to face consequences this time around. We’re not leaving.

The 2008 crisis

2008 is when we saw a massive surge of failure to delivers. This is because hedge funds sought out businesses who were on the brink of collapsing to make some dirty money from.

2008 financial crisis

The use of naked shorting allowed failure to delivers to rise, ultimately bankrupting businesses. People lost their jobs and families faced real distress and turmoil. The parties who participated in these illegal and unethical strategies faced no consequences and boasted their ‘victory’ publicly.

Where was the SEC? The SEC has the power to stop fraud and monitor whether institutions have adequate capital relative to their trading positions as well as the proper risk management systems that could have prevented this catastrophic loss for millions of Americans.

Bare with me. I’m going to let you know exactly who the SEC is, or at least who they portray to be.

AMC’s millions of fail to delivers

The community of retail investors have just recently pulled up this data from the SEC ‘fails-to-deliver’ data.

AMC failure to deliver
SEC data
Franknez.com

AMC Entertainment saw over 7.5 million failure to delivers with almost 3.1 million occurring on the 13th and 14th of April, 2021.

The parties behind these purposeful failure to delivers need to be held accountable.

What can retail investors do?

Retail investors should continue to educate one another on this very important matter. The community as a whole is not only revealing the manipulation that occurs in the stock market, but uncovering the malicious intentions hedge funds have towards AMC Entertainment.

The SEC must put a stop to naked short selling at once

The SEC must put a stop to naked short selling AMC

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is an independent agency of the United States federal government that was created to protect investors as well as the national bank after the market crash in 1930.

For reference

Lobbying – in politics, lobbying is the act of lawfully attempting to influence the actions, policies, or decisions of government officials, most often legislators or members of regulatory agencies.

So why isn’t the SEC doing anything about the illicit activity of naked short selling in the market? More specifically with what’s occurring with AMC and GameStop right now?

If you could say one thing to the SEC

If the SEC sees this article and you had a chance to get your voice heard, what’s one thing you would say to the SEC?

Leave it in the comments section below and make sure you’re heard.

Words of certainty AMC

Unapplied knowledge is wasted knowledge so be sure to spread this message with the community. We as a whole are uncovering something massive. And yes, I truly believe we can make a change here.

FUD should officially be off the table. We have all the data and certainty we need to see this through. Not only are retail investors going to profit from a short squeeze, but justice will be served for the financial crisis of 2008 and the current attacks on AMC and GameStop.

I also want to say thank you to the apes who are keeping everyone informed and to those of you who continuously take the time to do the research. Only by sticking together will the community see massive change. Stay positive.
