Adam Aron, CEO and Chairman of AMC Entertainment announced during the Q2 earnings conference call that AMC theaters would be accepting Bitcoin as online payment for movie tickets by the end of 2021.

Adam said he had been doing deep research in blockchain technology to set up systems to make this happen. The CEO is well aware that its shareholders are big on crypto and wants to further provide value to the community.

In addition, AMC Entertainment will also begin to accept Apple Pay and Google Pay. The chains’ focus at the moment is on providing convenience on top of convenience.


Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to talk about what this incredible announcement will mean for AMC Entertainment, the stock, and shareholders alike.

Lets get started!

There is so much to talk about here. The Q2 earnings conference call went amazing. AMC shareholders should be just as excited as I am. Cheers to continuous growth.

Adam Aron Shuts Down Naysayers

During the Q2 earning’s call, Adam Aron confidently shut down naysayers doubting AMC’s capabilities and projected growth. The chain is doubling sales through rising attendance and an increased ticket and food sales.

“In short, AMC crushed it in Q2” – Adam Aron.

If you listened to both Q1 and Q2 conference call, then you know just how confident, mature, and innovative AMC projected itself to be this time around.

Rich Greenfield must be planning another way to strike back at the company, that is unless he’s been found with his foot in his mouth.

AMC and GameStop Partnership Teaser

AMC GameStop Partnership

Adam Aron left shareholders in awe after teasing about a possible partnership with GameStop for an ultimate gaming experience in AMC theaters.

He did not say much but did confirm that they are currently discussing innovation to deliver the ultimate move and gaming experience to both their shareholders and guests.

If we’re talking company fundamentals, talks of partnerships and innovation should reflect in both AMC and GME stock in the days to come. I will keep an eye out for more information as more updates unfold.

Warner Bros. Provides Exclusive Window To AMC Entertainment

AMC Warner Bros
AMC Warner Bros News

Warner Brothers and AMC Entertainment just came to an agreement of a 45 day window on new releases. Warner Bros. will not be releasing new films to Disney or other streaming platforms with a 45 day period of its premier.

What a jab to forces claiming AMC Entertainment would lose to online streaming. Streaming services will now be denied access to release new titles as soon as they are released.

Congratulations to AMC Entertainment and CEO Adam Aron on this massive move. As an AMC shareholder it makes me real happy to see this company succeed.

AMC Entertainment Is Working On Bringing Sports To The Big Screen

The AMC UFC showings were a massive success. Showings sold out quick and AMC Entertainment now wants to bring more to the big screen!

“My bet is that we will see more partnerships like this in the near future as venues seek to diversify their offerings and leagues look for increasingly innovative ways to engage fans”, via. Front Office Sports.

AMC UFC Showing

Adam Aron announced during the Q2 earnings conference call that the company is working on sealing contracts with the sports industry to screen several type of sport events.

These news has sports fans enthusiastic about new experiences for moviegoers. It’s this type of innovation that will put AMC Entertainment in the eyes of traditional investors who aren’t part of the ape community.

In addition, the CEO is also looking to reserve the rights to showcase more musical events such as that of Chance The Rapper’s ‘Magnificent Coloring World’. Music lovers will get a chance to experience grand shows and performances from the big screen very soon.

‘HODL’, Did You Catch It?

If you didn’t catch this bit during the conference it’s okay. It was very subtle but nonetheless massive news for retail investors.

Adam Aron confirmed him and executives would be ‘holding’ the stock. This means executives cannot sell their shares as AMC’s stock price begins to climb, preventing momentum.

Executives are required to hold their shares under contract for a certain amount of years before they can sell and cash in. For the ape community this means we’re in the clear from the company’s side that is.

So although we don’t have control of what other institutions do as the stock begins to surge again, we know Adam Aron and his team upstairs will not be selling.

A Bright Future Ahead

AMC ended the June 30, 2021 quarter with more than $2 billion of liquidity. This is double the highest quarter ending liquidity level AMC Entertainment has ever had in its 101 year history.

The chain plans to reinvest into the company to enhance the guest experience while increasing it’s revenue through new partnerships in show business.

So, what does this mean for AMC shareholders? Nothing but great news. I expect the buzz will bring in traditional investors for the long haul. AMC stock is the number 1 stock in the market right now and the community only keeps getting stronger.

Share these news with an ape in the community.

How Soon Will Hedge Funds Get Margin Called? (AMC)

How soon will hedge funds get margin called?
When will hedge funds get margin called? #AMCsqueeze #AMCstock

Retail investors all want to know. How soon will hedge funds get margin called? I’m going to be updating this article with new information as it becomes available so be sure to bookmark it.

If you’re investing in AMC or GameStop, this article will prove to be of value to you. You’ve done an outstanding job. You’ve bought the rips and dips but most importantly, you’ve held.

Lets go over the data that is currently available regarding margin calls and hedge funds. There are some incredible things happening behind the scenes that you need to know.


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 give a massive thank you to my readers. A lot of you have just recently started following me and I’m very grateful for your support. I love seeing the community sharing FrankNez content on social media. It brings me great pleasure to know I’m providing value in your daily lives.

What is a margin call?

I published a piece fully dedicated to what a margin call is in the stock market world some time ago. In short, 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

If you’re a new retail investor and have recently joined the ape community then you’ve more than likely heard the term margin call before. A margin call is basically a 50/50% chance a short squeeze may occur on the spot.

However, even if hedge funds are able to keep enough capital in their margin accounts to keep them afloat, at some point they’ll have to cave in. Hedge funds are losing billions of dollars and this game is only costing them more money each day that passes.

Bloomberg News on Gary Gensler / Margin Calls

Margin call hedge funds

In this video, Bloomberg News discusses Gary Gensler, the new SEC chairman’s concerns of overleveraging and manipulation in the stock market.

This five minute video is important to log because it demonstrates and acknowledges the concerns in the market. Perhaps the SEC was incompetent in the past to say the least. But it looks like we might be looking at some change here community.

And although this particular video was published on May 6th, below are some things Gary Gensler is already proposing in order to protect retail investors and the overall market in general.


SR-NSCC-2021-002 AMC automatic margin calls

This proposal from the SEC is massive if it gets approved. The SEC has heard you and they’ve been looking into hedge funds overleveraging their positions in AMC stock and other ‘meme stocks’.

This proposal would allow an automatic margin call system to margin call hedge funds with overleveraged accounts. This margin call system will essentially target short sellers on a daily basis and identify whether they are required to raise margin minimums or liquidate their positions.

SR-NSCC-2021-002 APPROVED 6/21/2021

SR-NSCC-2021-002 APPROVED margin calls
SR-NSCC-2021-002 Approved

Community, proposal 002 has been approved. These regulations have been placed in effect. However, as long as short sellers are able to keep up with their margin requirements then this regulation is rather neutral. A lot of these rules being put into place play in our favor the more money short sellers lose.

Total Return Swap AMC

The SEC and FINRA have gotten together to review the activity of ongoing overleveraging in the stock market. Hedge funds could soon face total return swaps per Gary Gensler, SEC chairman.

In a total return swap, the payer (hedge fund) must pay the interest on the underlying assets, plus any appreciation in the market value of the asset. This sounds a lot like shorts paying all short borrow fee owed on top of the market value of naked shares they’ve traded.

13-F filings and short selling disclosures

There’s a strong possibility that hedge funds also face 13-F filings. This filing will provide the SEC with insight on equity and dark pool disclosure.

Everything now seems to be falling right into place despite the continuous short laddering.

When will hedge funds get margin called?

Charles Schwab has recently raised margin requirements for both AMC and GME stock. This means that if they are unable to keep the minimum cash required in their margin accounts, they’ll be required to liquidate some or all of their positions!

This would create massive price action to trend in an upwards position. We know that short sellers are losing millions of dollars every day. Ladies and gentlemen. This is simply a waiting game. The point is going to come where they can no longer afford to be negative each day.

This movement is about to get on a whole other level of excitement. The fundamentals to this AMC short squeeze have not changed. All retail investors will have to do is hold until short sellers cave in and close their positions willingly, or brokers margin call them.

BREAKING NEWS: Charles Schwab raises margins on short sellers shorting AMC and GME stock

Charles Schwab raises margin requirements

Charles Schwab raises margin requirements

The broker is adjusting 100% margin requirements for AMC on all long positions, and 200% on short term positions. As for GameStop, the margin requirement is 100% on all long positions and a whopping 300% on short term positions.

All this essentially means is that short sellers will be required to have more cash at hand as collateral. So not only are hedge funds losing a lot of money every day but are now being required to put enough cash into their accounts to cover their entire positions if need be!

You know what happens if they can’t cover right? That’s right, margin call. Instant liquidation of their accounts resulting in the MOASS we’ve all been waiting for.

Margin calls will result in a short squeeze

At first we might experience what’s known as consecutive gamma squeezes. These are usually triggered by high volume in the market due to expiring call options in the money or very high purchasing days.

As more short sellers and hedge funds with larger short positions in AMC stock begin to cover, we will begin to experience the beginning of a short squeeze.

A short squeeze could last several days to several weeks. During this timeframe, the stocks price will continue to skyrocket as more short positions are closed.

It really does feel like we’re coming to an end here. This new beginning is going to change millions of people’s lives and I’m glad to be that first person to congratulate you.


Proposition NSCC-2021-010 allows the NSCC to act as a third party lender to oversee every transaction between lenders. It prevents short sellers from using naked shorting strategies and from creating FTDs.

This is one of the biggest AMC news yet regarding the stock. The NSCC is also requiring that short sellers have more cash at hand to limit overleveraging their positions.

This proposal can go into effect at any time but may take a few weeks in case something needs to be revised. Once approved, AMC stock will surge past $40 leading back to higher levels of support.

When should I exit my position in AMC?

I wrote an AMC exit strategy guide to help the community make a strategized decision on how to sell when AMC squeezes.

I do want to relay that this is only my take on it. Many of you already have your own exit strategies, I understand this. Regardless, it’s there if you need it and would like insight from a different perspective.

AMC Stock Is Primed To Bounce Back Up: MOASS

AMC Stock is primed to bounce back moass

AMC’s downtrend was not violent. Ladies and gentlemen the community has not sold. AMC’s turnover ratio is extremely low but more on that later.

AMC stock is about to bounce back up and I’m going to explain why. The data presented below does not lie, get excited.


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!

Community – I want to start off by saying thank you for sharing this information with the public. The community is growing every day and more retail investors are opting in for the opportunity of their lifetime.

I also want to give a special thanks to my Discord group who are always sharing FrankNez articles on social media. You guys rock.

AMC stock hits a new bottom?

AMC stock has been trading around the mid $30 range for a few days now. The stock dropped to the low $30s before beginning to consolidate upwards to mid levels now.

For about a month straight we’ve experienced AMC consolidate in a downwards trend so this little bounce back up could indicate the stock has hit a new bottom.

The last time AMC hit a new bottom was back when it dropped from $20 per share to the $5 per share. People bought AMC stock on the way down and were left bag holding for quite some time. Those who held have a huge payout on paper.

So if you bought at $70 per share while it was going down just be patient. Great things come to those who wait. The community has done an amazing job at keeping everyone informed when FUD arises. We’ve been able to eliminate it as soon as we see it.

The AMC community has never been stronger and more unified. Despite the desperate media attempts to divert the public from selling their stock, retail investors continue holding.

AMC has a low turnover ratio, what does this mean?

A low turnover ratio reflects a buy-and-hold investment strategy. AMC has a 3% turnover ratio which means almost every single ape holding AMC stock is not selling.

AMC turnover ratio

This data confirms the dip of the price is not due to retail investors selling. Short sellers have been borrowing millions of shares to short the stock. With majority of retail investors holding, there was very little volume to counter these synthetic sell walls.

Retail investors continue to hold the one asset short sellers need to buy back. The available shares to borrow has also gone down quite significant. This number has gone down to the hundreds of thousands.

Short sellers could continue to overleverage their positions but are currently under high scrutiny from broker firms. What will push AMC’s stock price right now will be buying power. This bullish momentum could ignite short sellers to close out their positions as the price and margin requirements continue to rise.

I believe this will be the last time we see AMC in its $30s. Those who took the advantage to bulk up this discount will experience mainly gains moving forward.

100/100 AMC short squeeze score

S3 Partners are a short interest and securities finance data provider. They deliver real-time and the most accurate short interest analytics.

The tools that S3 partners provides TA’s (technical analysists) allow us to get a technical analysis perspective on the short interest data. Trey and other traders saw AMC had a massive short interest which meant that by using the buy-and-hold strategy, retail investors have the opportunity to squeeze them out of their positions.

S3 Partners AMC short squeeze score

Well now we’ve been receiving a lot of data from these niche data collectors saying AMC is primed with a perfect score to squeeze. S3 partners is relaying a score of 100 out of 100.

We’ve seen Fintel’s short squeeze score reach 10/10 on their page as well. This is no coincidence as the data that has been made public by community leaders is now being reflected heavier on these platforms.

We’d be caught in a pickle if the data said otherwise but the numbers don’t lie. Whether AMC is trading at $30, $40, or $50, the stock is primed for a short squeeze.

Retail investors will have to continue to buy and hold the stock to see this come to fruition. If you’ve been doubting where AMC has been going, this should clarify so much. Trust the data.

Special thanks to r/amcstock

I want to give a special thanks to the creator of r/amcstock. I will not mention his name but we connected last month when he joined my Discord group.

This subreddit has been a tremendous help to the movement as it has allowed the community to stay informed. I also want to thank those of you who have been sharing my DD and articles on r/amcstock.

This is actually how the subreddit creator and I connected. He noticed you, the community sharing the information I’ve provided so thank you.

And of course this information would not be here if it weren’t for OisinB. Here’s the direct link to this subreddit post.

Hedge funds face serious scrutiny

If you’re following me on Twitter or are subscribed to my newsletter, you’ve more than likely already seen the massive scrutiny short sellers are currently facing.

Not only has Charles Schwab raised margin requirements for short sellers shorting both AMC and GME, but JP Morgan has jumped on the train as well.

JP Morgan warns hedge funds of intraday margin calls. If you missed that excerpt make sure to read it as it’s huge news! Brokers have just about had enough and taking the necessary precautions to prevent severe losses.

So what’s the deal with hedge funds right now? We know they’re losing millions each day. They’ve been able to drive the price down behind closed doors using dark pools. Naked shorting has now gone mainstream thanks to Melissa Lee from CNBC and Charles Payne from FOX Business.

Zoom out to look at the entire picture and you’ll find good karma is leaning towards the retail investors.

AMC Stock: Could This Be The Dip Before The Rip?

AMC dip before the rip
AMC Dip Before The Rip

Why is AMC stock falling? If there’s anything we can learn from Volkswagen’s short squeeze is that it too dipped before reaching nearly $1,000 per share. Before Volkswagen’s share price drastically declined it had a solid bull run. Sound familiar?

Is this what’s happening with AMC stock? Ladies and gentlemen, strap on your seatbelts. Shorts are under high scrutiny and their accounts keep getting hit by intraday margin requirements.

Failure to meet margin requirements and it’s margin call time baby. This could very well be the start to that new life.

franknez.com personal finance blog

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 vs retail investors

AMC continues to trend downwards shortly after a new wave of retail investors joined the ape army. Many of you are shaking in your boots right now.

Straighten up soldier, you’ve entered a financial war you didn’t even know existed. Are you going to let the people who screwed you over back in 2008 take your money again? Or are you going to hold your stock until you squeeze them out of their positions?

Community, they’re trying to scare you out of your money. Your losses on paper aren’t real until you make them real. Don’t collect your losses, hold your stock. Not financial advice, but advice from a friend.

Hedge funds have been finding loopholes to drive the price down while the SEC has gotten paid to turn the cheek. The sight has not been pretty. This is financial war.

Why is AMC stock going down?

The ape sentiment has not changed. We continue to buy and hold, so why is AMC stock going down? Could this be AMC’s dip before the rip? The answer might lie in the trades occurring in dark pools.

Dark pools are basically private trading systems inaccessible to the public eye. Trading here could be naked shorting which could be causing the price to fall using synthetic shares.

These shares aren’t real, they’re made up. If there’s anything we’ve discovered during this entire movement it’s that hedge funds have way too much power than should be allowed. That and the SEC has been compromised as we’ve seen they have absolutely no authority over these entities.

AMC’s stock price could be temporary

Reports have been made that the trading occurring in dark pools has been a whopping 60+%. This means more than half of AMC’s trading has been occurring in these private trading systems where retail investors have absolutely no way of accessing.

AMC dark pool data
AMC Dark Pool Data

Retail investors aren’t liquidating their positions, hedge funds are behind something much more maleficent. And in some cases, hedge funds aren’t even obligated to report this information.

Ladies and gentlemen, we must fight this corruption together. The SEC has been compromised and it is up to us to get loud. The good guys will win. But justice needs to be served in more than one area once this chapter is over.

A closing opportunity?

As AMC’s share price continues on this downtrend, is it possible shorts will cover? Yes they’re illegally driving the share price down behind closed doors but is it to manage their losses?

We know it’s costing them millions of dollars to hold their positions ever day. They’ve been paying a fee to borrow the stock all year. Will they take this opportunity to close their positions without significant losses and call it a day? Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

The ape community will only buy more

See the thing is that hedge funds have not exhausted the community. They’ve only made us hungrier. Our why, our reasons for this trade is much bigger than theirs.

AMC Entertainment is not bullish nor bearish, it’s apeish. And we’re not leaving until every single synthetic share has been covered.

And if you’re holding losses on paper right now and don’t know what to do, borrow my strength. I am not leaving you behind and I am not selling my position until we squeeze.

We’ve been there. I’ve been there. Our conviction gets tested when things get tough. Any major drop in the stock and expect apes to bulk up more than the first time. We aren’t going anywhere.

AMC compared to Volkswagen

AMC compared to Volkswagen

If we compare AMC to Volkswagen before it squeezed you’ll see a similar pattern here. Both AMC and Volkswagen had a bull run before beginning to decline.

This decline bottomed out before shorts covered their positions at a more attractive price. This resulted in Volkswagen to squeeze.

Think about the investors who got out of the short squeeze play as it was coming down only to find out the stock squeezed once it found its bottom.

Now put yourself in that position for just a moment. How would you feel if you liquidated your position right before AMC squeezed? I’d love to hear from you down in the comment section below, this is a challenging question.

Volkswagen, like AMC was also a short squeeze play. It took Volkswagen to rise and fall only to stand up even bigger than ever before. Kind of like life, ya know? Moral of this comparison? There was a dip before the rip.

How low will AMC go before it skyrockets?

Seeing as AMC’s highest price point prior to this movement was $35 back in 2016, it’s highly likely shorts took positions from this price range below. What they’re doing is a group effort so maybe John started shorting AMC around $20 and they’re not leaving John behind.

I mean who knows right? One thing is certain. Once AMC’s share price gets lower, apes will buy the stock at this significant discount inevitably causing AMC to rise again; forcing shorts to cover their positions.

Failure to do so would result in continuous losses. And if it takes doing this all over again I’ll do it. The short interest does not lie, the shares on loan do not lie, ladies and gentlemen the data does not lie.

The question here is, are you going to miss out on this opportunity? Or are you going to let it run its course? You decide.

BREAKING: Are hedge funds about to get margin called by JP Morgan?

Are Hedge Funds About To Get Margin Called by JP Morgan?

JP Morgan Margin Call AMC
JP Morgan Margin Call

According to RISK.net JP Morgan warns hedge funds of intraday margin calls. This sounds very similar to proposal 002. The U.S bank may demand margins up to “7 times per day” according to sources.

The tough love comes from the fear of losing money and covering hedge fund positions like global banks did with Archegos Capital earlier this year. It seems like they’ve started to notice a pattern here.

As always, I’ll give you my take on what this means for us retail investors and how it plays into AMC’s short squeeze 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!

Ladies and gentlemen banks have had enough. They’re tired of getting screwed over by hedge funds overleveraging their short positions. When hedge funds cannot cover the entire hit, brokers have to cover the rest.

JP Morgan is trying to prevent from becoming like one of the affected brokers that suffered significant losses due to Archegos shorting Viacom and Discovery earlier this year.

Although the SEC might be oblivious to what’s going on, this bank sure isn’t. And if you remember, Charles Schwab has also raised margin requirements for short sellers shorting both AMC and GME stock.

Archegos meltdown resulted in billion dollar losses for global banks

Archegos JP Morgan

Banks to massive losses due to Archegos Capital overleveraging their positions in highly shorted stock such as Viacom and Discovery.

Wells Fargo was one of the banks that did not suffer any losses. “We had a prime brokerage relationship with Archegos,” the bank said. “We were well collateralized at all times over the last week and no longer have any exposure.”

According the Reuters, Morgan Stanley lost nearly $1 billion dollars from the collapse of Archegos. Other banks hit were Credit Suisse Group and Nomura Holdings which were affected the most.

Global banks were expected to lose between $5-$10 billion dollars according JP Morgan. And now it seems JP Morgan is taking the precautions necessary to avoid enormous losses too. By issuing intraday margins, they make sure short sellers have enough cash at hand as collateral. This could possibly be the catalyst for what we’ve been waiting for.

If margin accounts cannot keep up with the daily demand for new cash in its accounts, JP Morgan may instantaneously close out overleveraged positions. This will cause AMC stock to soar.

Hedge funds and family offices are affected

Archegos was technically a family office managing billions in assets, not a hedge fund. Well now JP Morgan is demanding both hedge funds and family offices post more cash during the day if their trades loses value.

The news was provided to Risk.net by three people who are familiar with the matter. No further information aside from these intraday margin requirements were relayed by the publication.

If JP Morgan sees too much risk within some accounts, and they will, they have the power to liquidate margin accounts short selling both AMC and GME stock. The results would drive these stocks high enough to force all shorts out of their positions.

Managing margin call news expectations

It’s important for the community to take into consideration that most news regarding margin calls have merely been neutral, so far.

If this JP Morgan margin call news plays in our favor then excellent! We could very well begin seeing some short covering. But if it doesn’t, another catalyst will end up squeezing shorts out of their positions. This may be a new wave of volume or other brokers who do not want to risk their investments through these overleveraged hedge funds.

However, positive news like this should feed your conviction. When you’re in need of strength, borrow mine.

I personally believe were getting closer to this chapter coming to an end as hedge funds continue to face serious scrutiny. Think about this for a second, the cards are against them.

Retail investors, banks, whales, and the public are all against them. I’m interested to know your thoughts, leave me a comment below. Are you ready for this short squeeze? And when do you personally think this will liftoff?

What The Fool Isn’t Telling You About AMC Could Hurt You

The Motley Fool AMC
The Motley Fool – AMC Stock

AMC is the #1 play in the stock market right now and The Fool along with other hedge fund affiliate partners don’t want you to dig deeper. Countless headlines are being published trying to scare new retail investors out of their money.

AMC is currently the heaviest shorted stock in the market right now. The short interest keeps going up and the number of shares on loan is a staggering 99 million shares.

I’m also going to go over what the utilization in AMC stock means. We’ve heard this many times over on Trey’s Trades videos so I’m going to break it down for you smooth brained apes.

franknez trey's trades

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!

AMC’s short interest keeps rising

If you’re following Matt or Trey on Twitter you’ve seen they consistently post the updated short interest number. What’s AMC’s current short interest? It’s currently 18.93% and rising.

The mainstream financial platforms will not tell you this. This information is being kept from the public but apes in the community will share this with you. It’s your right.

What is short interest in stocks?

Short interest is the percentage of shares of a particular stock that has been sold short but have yet to be covered or closed.

With AMC, 18.93% of the outstanding shares are being shorted and have not been covered. AMC’s current outstanding shares according to YCHARTS is 501.78 million. This means approximately 94.9 million shares are being shorted and must be covered.

Just to put things into perspective, Apple’s short interest is 0.65%. AMC short interest is high and it has been climbing all year. It’s the heaviest shorted stock in the market.

Hedge funds shorting AMC stock are also paying a short borrow fee rate for borrowing the stock. Hedge funds have lost billions of dollars year-to-date and continue to lose millions with every passing day they do not close their short positions.

The Fool, MarketWatch, and others protect partners

Not only are The Fool and MarketWatch hedge fund affiliates, but Robinhood, who halted buying both AMC and GME stock early this year are also an affiliate to Citadel Securities.

Citadel Securities is Robinhood’s clearing house. Moral of this story? Ditch Robinhood, and stop sharing and reading shill news articles trying to scare retail investors out of their money.

AMC shares on loan

AMC’s current shares on loan is a staggering 90+ million shares. The shares on loan has been high all year and the media will not tell you this. We found this number by dividing the short interest by the current outstanding shares available.

This is why retail investors have flocked over to AMC in order to squeeze shorts out of their positions. The shares on loan has been increasing since the beginning of the year.

Short sellers keep borrowing stock

As if the evidence couldn’t be more obvious, short sellers continue to overleverage their positions in order to short AMC stock.

AMC short shares available

Hedge funds have been digging themselves in a deep hole of debt all year. They’ve been leveraging their clients assets in order to drive down the price of a company that is no longer going bankrupt.

And unfortunately for these high ticket investors, the value of their investments will continue to plunge. AMC is a ticking time bomb for a short squeeze that’s been long overdue.

Forbes talks 10/10 AMC short squeeze score

Forbes short squeeze short

Unlike majority of financial platforms, Forbes hasn’t been blind to all of this information. “Dusaniwsky has developed a Short Squeeze score and ranks AMC ‘s and GameStop’s metric a 10 out of 10 for a short squeeze.

Forbes gives AMC and GME this 10/10 short squeeze score for the following reasons:

  • There is a large amount of dollars at risk on the short side (high short interest)
  • A large proportion of a security’s tradable float shorted (high S3 SI % Float)
  • There is scarcity of stock loan supply (high stock borrow fees)
  • And there is limited daily trading volume (high days to cover)

I want to give a special thanks to Chuck Jones, the senior contributor at Forbes for publishing this piece on AMC Entertainment and GameStop.

What is utilization in stocks?

A stock’s utilization can be seen as the ratio of a stock’s demand to supply.

InteractiveBrokers gives a perfect example of what this means for AMC Entertainment stock. APPL may have utilization of less than 1% because the stock has vast availability relative to the demand to borrow shares for shorting. AMC Entertainment may have utilization above 90% because of higher demand to short shares as compared to the number of available shares.

What is AMC’s current utilization?

AMC’s current utilization according to ORTEX is 91.39%. All data covered by professional and technical analysts shows us AMC is currently the heaviest shorted stock in the market.

AMC stock is in high demand by both retail investors and short sellers. This play will not end until shorts have covered all their positions.

Retail investors are betting on AMC

MarketBeat’s option change for AMC Entertainment stock looks rather healthy. The general public is betting on AMC stock to continue rising. Several call options are opting for $100+ strikes for this Friday’s close.

The sentiment from retail investors has never been more bullish on the stock. Impatient retail investors will not get this chance again as AMC Entertainment preps itself to take flight again.

AMC is running out of sellers

AMC is running out of sellers

According to Benzinga, “Volume in AMC’s stock has been declining, especially in terms of bearish volume, which indicates the stock is running out of sellers. This pattern is often seen before eventual large upward swings in a stock.”

The patterns and the data available is all you need to build a strong conviction towards AMC stock. The numbers don’t lie and neither do the patterns.

We can hype it up and talk about how much we love this movement but in the end it’s the data we must trust. And for the paper hands that have trolled you online, remember them after the squeeze. Because in life you will come across people who will want to put you down for doing something great with your life.

Hedge funds and their affiliate partners are only blockages you’ll have to learn how to manage. Nothing great ever comes easy so hold and remember your why.

AMC Gets Removed From The NYSE Threshold Securities List

AMC gets removed from the NYSE threshold securities list

Community, if it doesn’t play in our favor then it’s neutral. The game plan doesn’t change. AMC Entertainment has been removed from the NYSE threshold securities list. Retail investors are asking, why?


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!

It’s no surprise at all. Without wanting to speak on this possibility in the previous threshold securities article I published, it actually ended up happening. Hedge funds will more than likely use this rinse and repeat method which will allow them to cause more fails-to-deliver shortly after they’ve been taken off the threshold securities list.

So while they’re off the list now, expect them to be back on very soon. Rather than pay their dues on the 13th consecutive day, they let options expire with no issues. This could very well be the reason why AMC Entertainment has been taken off the threshold. It’s possible hedge funds did not let it get to the 13th consecutive day.

Why did AMC get removed from the threshold securities list?

It’s possible hedge funds drove the share price down last week in order to cover these positions allowing them to get off the threshold securities list. We saw a small spike after AMC’s share price dipped below $40. It would only make sense as to why we saw this particular movement in the price and why AMC is no longer on the threshold securities list.

Volume for call options in the money were over 15K and were exercised at $46. However, we won’t know whether these call options were executed properly or not. They could become FTDs at some point and get AMC back on the threshold.

Now, we know hedge funds are always finding loopholes to cheat the system and to cheat their own customers, because ultimately that’s what they’re doing right now.

Even if they create this rinse and repeat process, it’s only affecting short sellers more then it is retail investors. They’re borrowing so much money without realizing they eventually have to pay it back, no matter how long they keep this play going.

Prolonging the inevitable is leading short sellers to rack up more losses even if it’s only just on paper.

Manage your expectations

I’ve said this in my Discord before, all AMC news should be viewed as extra information for the archives, right? For documentation purposes only. If it doesn’t help us retail investor out then it is only neutral to this play.

The SEC might want to look like they’re actually doing something, but we all know in reality they are just being lobbied. Could the threshold have made a difference for the community? Yes, absolutely.

However, the ultimate game plan still stands; with or without the help of the SEC. Which by the way, we’re going to continue exposing them along the way too.

Hedge funds are carrying massive debt

Customers invested in these hedge funds should know their money is not producing money at the moment. It’s being used as leverage to fuel their partners egos. Unfortunately for these clients, a lot of money will be lost. The American people in general are going to lose their pensions and life savings due to these hedge funds overleveraging their positions.

Short sellers continue to borrow money from every crevice they can find. You know what happens when you borrow money? You eventually have to pay it back.

These red days don’t matter as long as retail investors hold AMC stock. And despite the current volatility, hedge funds are losing.

It’s important to remember that a red day doesn’t mean short sellers are winning. Red days mean there’s a discount for retail investors and an opportunity for short sellers to close lower. That’s it.

AMC & GME negative beta

Community, this is something else I want to point out. AMC currently has a negative beta of -3.95 and GME has a whopping negative beta of -7.05. So what is negative beta?

Negative beta less than 0 is an inverse relation to the market and is also known to be very rare. Well, what’s occurring with both AMC and GameStop is indeed unique and rather rare.

A negative beta for AMC and GME would mean that as the market crashes, both AMC and GME will react the complete opposite.

AMC Negative Beta
AMC Negative Beta

With talks of a stock market crash, AMC and GME seem to be the best vehicles to park some money in if you’re trying to avoid a stock market crash from affecting your net worth. Negative betas tend to do better when the stock market is down.

I haven’t seen anyone else touch on this topic but this is big information. There’s a strong chance for high profitability here that many seasoned apes have already seen on paper.

And if you just got into AMC stock, know this is only the beginning for you. Patience is key to making a trade of this magnitude.

Trust the process data

Why am I telling you this? Because these analytics say everything. The data and the numbers ultimately do not lie.

The SEC can pretend to do something about the manipulation but in the end we can only trust the data.

The process is going to lead us to many highs and many lows. The process is going to be one massive learning experience. Learning patience and educating yourself about what’s occurring in the stock market are going to be the two biggest lessons.

The data however, will always be present. The data does not change whether AMC is green or whether it is red. You don’t even have to trust me nor your favorite YouTubers covering AMC and GameStop. But I do suggest that you trust the data.

The Fool won’t cover this

Have you seen any financial platforms cover this? They don’t want you to know the data. AMC will eventually make it back to the threshold securities list but it won’t matter. The ape community must continue to buy and hold the stock in order to squeeze these shorts out of their positions.

This MOASS, it’s inevitable.

Can The Government Interfere With AMC’s Short Squeeze?

Can the government stop a short squeeze

The stock market is a free market, theoretically right? Highs and lows in the stock market are affected by supply and demand. A lot of retail investors have been questioning for a while whether the possibility of the government interfering with AMC’s short squeeze is possible.

I’ve been doing some digging to provide the community with more value regarding this scary scenario. Lets jump right in.


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

What is a free market?

A free market is an economic system based on supply and demand with very little to absolutely no interference from the government.

Free markets are characterized by a spontaneous and decentralized arrangements where individuals make economic and personal financial decisions. A key component of a free market is transactions cannot be ‘forced’ nor can it be controlled by a centralized authority, or single entity such as the government.

One of the most critical features in a free market is the absence of forceful impositions or restrictions regarding economic activities, (source).

I wonder if this is why short sellers have been able to get away with a lot things, community. Which leads me to the next segment on government interference. Isn’t the SEC technically government?

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

SEC AMC stock

The SEC is a large independent agency of the United States federal government that was created after the Wall Street crash of 1929. The primary purpose of the SEC is to enforce the law against market manipulation.

It gets you thinking why the SEC hasn’t been fulfilling its obligations right? Both AMC and GME have been heavily manipulated through the illegal malpractice of trading naked shares.

The SEC is that small part of the government that does have the authority to intervene when necessary. The SEC however, cannot stop retail investors from purchasing stock. Their job isn’t even to protect retail investors, it’s simply to bring balance to the market when someone is cheating.

Can the government halt the purchase of a stock?

The government cannot halt the purchase of a stock as it would be in direct violation of a free markets consensus and an individuals freedom of personal economic and financial decisions.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Robinhood incident, they were actually scrutinized by the government for halting buying but not selling of AMC, GameStop, Blackberry, and Bed Bath and Beyond stock. This happened back in February of this year.

But Robinhood wasn’t the only one that was scrutinized, Citadel who’s Robinhood’s clearing house was also trialed in regards to the manipulation that had occurred.

Was the government protecting retail investors? Absolutely not. They’re simply tired of taking care of financial institutions that require bail from the feds when they lose risky bets.

Where was the SEC during this manipulation?

According to Barron’s, the SEC simply filed a securities filing detailing they’re investigating Robinhood’s options practices and it’s decision to restrict trading these specific momentum stocks, as I like to call them.

According to Robinhood’s investing center page, the SEC is responsible for imposing halts on individual stocks.

They should really update this to a ‘circuit breaker’ halt. We’ve experienced two circuit breakers when AMC was running up to the $60 and $70 range. They’re meant to prevent massive selloffs and to give retail investors time to essentially gather their thoughts during a gamma squeeze.

What occurred with Robinhood was not a circuit breaker halt, it was straight up manipulation to prevent retail investors from further creating massive momentum of these heavily shorted stocks.

The SEC begins to impose regulations

So after this entire fiasco, the SEC has finally been imposing regulation surrounding the manipulation that has now been made public through the means of CNBC and FOX Business.

They’ve imposed proposal 002 which is supposed to set off automated margin calls for overleveraged accounts, for example. We cannot fully depend on the SEC to fix our problems. Any and all news related to regulations from the SEC must be taken with a grain of salt.

It’s either neutral or it plays in our favor. Once we squeeze shorts out of their positions we’re going to be scrutinizing the SEC. Because this play wouldn’t be much of a play at all if we weren’t exposing the corruption along the way. They’re reading this, and we see you.

Can the government influence the stock market?

The government can certainly influence the stock market. One way is through incentivizing care packages to the people in order to feed the economy during and economic downturn. Stimulus packages are a great example.

The second way is by loaning banks and institutions money as a form of collateral in order to prevent any sort of market crash.

So the government does have some influence in the stock market but it’s only to help the economy stay sustainable.

Can the government stop AMC from squeezing?

The government itself doesn’t have the power to prevent a natural event such as a short squeeze from taking place. The interference of such play would be a violation of a free market and all of it’s participants.

Stepping out of line would result in global protests.

Can the SEC stop a short squeeze?

The SEC’s primary job is to enforce laws in relations to stock market manipulation. A short squeeze is the natural force by which short sellers cover their short positions. The SEC cannot interfere with or manipulate this natural play in the market.

AMC Stock Is About To Squeeze: Here’s Life Next Week

AMC short squeeze

Short sellers continue to bet against AMC in hopes to cover their losses at a significantly lower price. AMC Entertainment is up almost 2500% year-to-date and has hedge funds accruing losses daily.

Contrarian hedge funds seem to be in a very sticky situation. They’re overleveraging their positions to the point of no return. Put on your helmets, we’re going home.


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!

Remember when we dealt a massive $1.2 billion blow to hedge funds back in May? Well shorts have doubled down their positions ever since. A short squeeze is imminent and it’s going to be MASSIVE. They’re amplifying their losses and all it’s going to take to squeeze them out is volume.

Whether we create this volume tomorrow, next week, or next month is completely up to us. That’s right apes, it’s time for us retail investors to play in offense one last time.

Short sellers borrow millions of shares to short AMC

It is truly remarkable to see the lengths the human psyche will go just to protect its pride.

According to Stonk-O-Tracker, short sellers are borrowing more than 2 million shares to currently short AMC Entertainment stock. “Shorting the stock” is a method used by short sellers to drive the price of a stock down.

And although short selling has served it’s purpose to keep things balanced in the past, it has since been taken advantage of; allowing hedge funds to shatter businesses across the United States. A very un-American way if you ask me.

AMC stock continues to get shorted
How to read Stonk-O-Tracker for beginners

However, shorting AMC stock has now been a pride game. They refuse to accept AMC Entertainment is no longer going bankrupt and continue to lose millions with each passing day.

That’s right. According to Business Insider hedge funds cannot plug up this sinking ship. If you’ve been spectating this entire game then you must know this is only the beginning to an end.

CNBC has also shamed short sellers with Cramer stating, “anyone shorting AMC or GameStop is out of their mind“.

AMC stock reaches an all-time high

AMC stock reaches new records

AMC’s highest stock price pre-pandemic was around the mid $30 range. The stock price has soared due to an increase in demand for these moon tickets.

Hedge funds are borrowing moon tickets and selling them for less pushing the stock price down. They eventually have to buy these tickets back to pay the broker they borrowed them from.

However, enough demand for the stock will result in a price increase. The brokers will see hedge funds cannot keep up the pace and demand the tickets back they borrowed.

Hedge funds will have to buy back the tickets (stock) from retail investors at a higher price, furthermore multiplying the demand. Your stock’s price will skyrocket due to squeezing these “short sellers” out of their positions.

This narrative paints exactly what’s occurring with AMC Entertainment at the moment.

Hedge funds now need more capital to operate

Charles Schwab raised margin requirements for short sellers betting against both AMC and GME stock a while back. This means brokers are taking notice of their overleveraged positions and now require them to keep larger sums of cash at hand as a form of collateral.

Hedge funds are now being looked at by their brokers who already think their bet is a risky play. This is truly the beginning of the end.

A short squeeze can happen next week

You read that correctly. Seasoned apes, or retail investors, have brought short sellers to the edge of the cliff. You just don’t know it because they began pushing back by doubling their short positions.

However, they’re literally the last fuel to take us to Andromeda. It’s a whole lot of us, and not so many of them. So what’s it gonna take to trigger this mother of all short squeezes?

More of us. That’s right – volume is the final catalyst to this momentum trade. We have short sellers on the edge of their seats right now. Their entire job was to make us feel like we were shrinking. They did this by further overleveraging their positions and moving the price down as the stock was held.

However, they’ve dug their graves so deep now that with an increase in retail investor and buying power, a short squeeze is now imminent.

Where will you be when AMC squeezes?

Have you thought about this? I want to prepare you for this life changing event. We know all it’s going to take for AMC to squeeze now is one final push.

I don’t believe the community should be preparing to hold anymore. Let go and prepare for this play to finally squeeze. Start preparing yourself for that moment of offense as we give AMC that last push.

This is the final call for new retail investors to join the trade. After this, only the archives of what you could have been a part of will remain. The chapter would have closed, and there will only be ‘what ifs’.

AMC short squeeze prediction?

AMC short squeeze prediction

No, this is not an AMC short squeeze prediction. View it as a farewell to the world you’re currently living in. The doors on this ship aren’t opening anymore. There’s no DD that will make or break what’s occurring right now. Only information for the archives.

If you can’t sense it in the air are you even breathing? Leave everyone who doubted you on Earth. Are you going to push the hedgies over the cliff now? Next week? Or are you going to patiently wait for the inevitable?

AMC begins to squeeze while you’re at work

How Much $1,000 Invested In AMC Stock This Year Is Worth Now

How much $1000 invested in AMC stock this year is worth now

Did the media scare you out of your money months back? Oh boy. If only you’d have done your due diligence. AMC stock is consolidating high now and it hasn’t even squeezed yet.

More and more people are investigating what exactly is going on with AMC Entertainment. In short, retail investors saved an entire movie industry and are making hedge funds betting against companies pay for it.

It’s amazing what can happen when people unite.


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!

The movie theater industry is thriving

AMC Entertainment is breaking box office records with new movie titles. The latest install Fast and Furious 9 grossed a whopping $70 million on opening weekend alone in the U.S and Canada, and $404.9 million worldwide.

Other films including Godzilla vs Kong, Mortal Kombat, and A Quite Place 2 have also broken records. I’ve updated an article with their earnings here.

Hedge funds betting against this company continue to dig their own graves. They’re losing billions holding open short positions in AMC.

What is AMC’s current share price?

AMC is currently trading at: $58 per share. The stock was worth $2.01 on January 4th’s regular trading day. If you purchased $1,000 worth of AMC stock then, you’d have a total of 497 shares. That’s equivalent to: $28,826 today on paper.

Not too shabby huh? The AMC community is not cashing in though. Retail investors are holding their positions further driving the stock’s share price up. We’re holding for the short squeeze 🤩.

A short squeeze would drive AMC’s stock price to Andromeda. Hedge funds have been borrowing millions of shares to drive AMC’s share price down all year. And unfortunately for them, they’ll have to pay these back. With interest…

Is AMC stock overvalued?

AMC stock has reached it’s highest market value in history. The stock itself is exploring unknown territory. Does this mean it’s overvalued? I think it’s fair to say the market decides the value of any security, asset, or service in the world. AMC’s current share price is the value the market has decided it is currently worth.

Why? Because of the massive demand for the stock right now. Hedge funds are creating one of the biggest demands for borrowed short shares ever seen in history. Retail investors on the other hand are creating a large demand for the stock itself.

The reason you’ve been pitched headlines to run away from this stock by MarketWatch and The Fool is because they’re affiliates to the hedge fund betting against both AMC and GameStop. They’re growing tired of losing millions of dollars each day.

Will AMC Entertainment reach $100 short term?

There’s data that confirms AMC Entertainment’s rise to $100 will solely be based on its current bullish run. A Fibonacci Retracement allows technical analysts to view levels of resistance as well as the next ladder up.

When AMC reaches $100 per share, it would have been merely from momentum trading. There will be a point where short sellers can no longer afford to hold their positions and will be forced to close them willingly. Otherwise, they will get their accounts liquidated through margin calls.

Is AMC a good stock to buy right now?

If you plan on investing in AMC stock you must know the risks. Hedge funds are playing dirty and the community is fighting corruption and manipulation in another world right now.

My suggestion to new retail investors is to do your research as much and as often as you can. This will help you identify what type of conviction you will grow to have for this stock.

Just because a lot of people have accumulated massive gains on paper right now doesn’t mean there’s not room for error. Come up with a strategy and learn from the community.

Read: 6 things retail investors holding AMC stock should now

Should you wait for AMC to dip?

The psychology behind this movement is based astronomically on bullish sentiment and bullish action. Trey put it beautifully when he said there’s bears, there’s bulls, and now there’s apes. Apes are the retail investors buying both the dips and the gains.

If you plan to buy on a green day, aim for buying any laddered attack (dip). Buying a stock on a red day implies the stock is on sale, or on discount. This is the sentiment from the community behind a bullish stock.

Gasparino and Richfield fail to fathom this psychology. And despite the various loopholes hedge funds have against retail investors, they never expected the community to become a real threat.

I’ve created an archive on all AMC articles on this one post here for you to keep handy. Make sure you bookmark the page so you can go back and view the ones you have not read yet.

Are you holding AMC stock? When did you get in?

Let me know in the comment section below if you’re holding AMC stock. And if so, what month did you get in? I purchased the stock in early February. I’m curious to know how long some of you have been holding it for or whether you just started.

And if you’re interested in investing in the stock market but have never done so, follow this link for a step by step guide. This article is going to help you open your own brokerage account so you can invest in whatever you’d like!


With that being said, I appreciate you tuning in today and for sharing the blog. Please don’t hesitate to personally reach out to me should you have any questions or would like me to touch on a specific topic. I’ll leave my social media links for you below.
