Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

The Fool thinks you should sell your stock, but retail investors aren’t budging.

Mainstream media who serve hedge funds in a conflict of interest have been egging retail investors to not buy the stock all of 2021.

If you listened to The Fool who told you not to buy AMC when its share price was low, then you would have missed out on a trade that went as high as 3000% in gains!

While the runup to $72 per share might have caused AMC’s short interest to drop to 14% from 20%, AMC’s short interest has now gone up to 21%.

Ladies and gentlemen, AMC stock has plenty of room for growth in 2022.

If you haven’t subscribed to the newsletter, be sure to do so that way you don’t miss out on new information.

Mainstream media wants retail to lose

It’s no secret the financial platforms who have been attacking AMC stock are tied together.

Wall Street Journal’s parent company is News Corp., who also owns Barrons, MarketWatch, and DOW Jones Newswire.

Well, there’s a relationship between Citadel Securities’ CEO Ken Griffin and News Corp (he owns stock).

This creates conflict of interest because of the influence these people in power have who are shorting AMC stock.

Citadel Securities is one of the top 10 financial institutions shorting AMC stock.

So, let’s look at the data that shows whether or not AMC will squeeze in 2022.

AMC Short Interest Data (2022)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

AMC’s short interest is currently at 21.55% (last updated on September 5th).

The short interest tells us the percentage of a stocks float that is being shorted (shares have been borrowed and not yet closed).

Because AMC is heavily shorted at 21%, this is a short squeeze play in 2022.

A 21% short interest is equivalent to approximately 196.09 million shares on loan (shares that have been borrowed and have not yet been closed).

When AMC’s short interest dropped from 20% to 14% (6 points), the share price rose to $72 per share.

New short positions have brought AMC’s short interest up to 21% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

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

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

AMC has a high enough short interest to squeeze shorts from their positions in 2022.

Sitting at 21% short interest, it’s more than enough to get the price up well into the high hundreds of dollars per share.

Whether regulators will investigate naked shares, FTDs, and other forms of counterfeit shares for hedge funds to cover is another topic.

AMC will need momentum if it’s to see another massive runup in share price.

Furthermore, hedge funds will lead their customers into losses for the second year in a row if retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock in 2022.

AMC Entertainment stock has plenty of room for growth and mainstream media doesn’t want you to know it.

Who is AMC stock for?

Popcorn

AMC stock is for the retail investors who are willing to take a little risk to multiply their investment through a short squeeze play.

A short squeeze play is a long commitment with incredible upside.

If you’re lucky enough to get involved in the ape community you’ll find yourself fighting for a fair and transparent market, where your voice means everything.

Reasons why AMC wont squeeze in 2022..

I’ve always been transparent with the community.

There are many of you who got in when I first began publishing the data early last year and are sitting on unrealized gains today.

And although AMC could have squeezed during various occasions last year, there are still things that can hinder AMC from squeezing this year.

Here’s a list of things that will refrain AMC from squeezing shorts from their positions:

  1. Retail investors start selling AMC stock
  2. Retail investors stop buying AMC stock
  3. New buyers aren’t introduced to the stock or short interest data
  4. Number of day-traders increase
  5. Regulators don’t enforce margin calls / protect retail from market manipulation

The AMC community has not had a problem holding or buying the stock.

One of the biggest problems the community faces today is regulators not protecting retail investors against the predatorial strategies from hedge funds.

The community has always been a beacon for change.

Apes will need to voice market concerns to elevate awareness.

AMC stock had multiple chances to squeeze in 2021, however, hedge funds always found a loophole that would prevent them from reporting information, or trading stock in the lit exchange.

Market manipulation continues to be a threat to every retail investor in the market.

AMC Entertainment was on the brink of extinction, it was about to go bankrupt.

Hedge funds took this opportunity to overleverage their short positions in the stock, betting it would close forever.

Once retail investors got in and saved the company, the community uncovered a number of market manipulation tactics that allowed hedge funds to prevent the stock’s share price from soaring.

The fight for a fair market continues in 2022.

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

It’s about freedom.

How Soon Will AMC Break the Next Level of Resistance?

when will AMC go up again
Stock Market News: AMC Stock news + More.

AMC stock is up +19.53% in the past month.

The movie theatre chain stock has broken resistance levels after it had bounced at $5 levels.

The $6 levels have been a strong demand zone for AMC, and recent volume has moved the stock up to $8.30.

But recent halts forced the stock to trade below $8, sending it back to $7 levels where it’s currently trading again.

How soon will AMC break the next level of resistance and move past $8 levels?

Let’s discuss what it’s going to take for the movie theatre chain to trigger massive price action again.

Volume is Key, But It’s Come Down

when will AMC go up again?
When will AMC go up again?

It’s not uncommon for trading volume to decline during a bear market.

Investors tend to sell stock more often than buy it during these times.

AMC’s average volume has dropped from 46 million earlier this year to 29.2 million.

There have been trading days where AMC’s share price spikes due to a high-volume day.

But these high-volume trading days have now become somewhat of anomalies compared to last year’s heavy buying weeks and months from retail.

Even now as we see AMC break resistance levels above $6 and $8, we see the importance of big volume days.

The SPY is showing us that the markets are readjusting again, ready for a market bounce after a dreadful bear market.

As investor confidence increases in the market, we may begin to see AMC’s average volume begin to rise again.

AMC’s Fundamentals Strike Wall Street Pessimists

when will AMC go up again?
When will AMC go up again?

Last year we saw many financial institutions were loading up on AMC Entertainment stock around the $9-$14 levels.

The difference this year is that AMC is a much better company fundamentally than it was last year.

Not only has the company cut its debt load, but it’s also beat earnings expectations every quarter since Q1 of 2021.

The century old company continues to be a retail favorite with many shareholders even turned loyal customers.

Shareholders have no doubt the community made up of millions of investors will squeeze short sellers again.

Only this time AMC will reach a new all-time high not seen yet.

Not only is the popularity of AMC increasing, but so is the popularity of investing in the stock market.

New investors getting into the stock market will be looking to capitalize on opportunities such as an AMC short squeeze.

Institutional and retail investor confidence in the market is what’s going to create big volume in the coming weeks as the market continues to bounce.

Worst Case Scenario?

when will AMC go up again?
When will AMC go up again?

My short-term view on AMC Entertainment stock is bullish.

Worst-case scenario is a bounce takes on more of a long-term approach.

Consolidation in AMC will indicate indecision, which means retail investors will need to step it up and demonstrate to institutions AMC is worth going long on.

Afterall, Wall Street can only deny AMC’s progress for so long until the narrative takes a complete 180 degrees.

But ultimately, retail investors are the key here.

Without retail investors, without the public, without the people, AMC stands no chance against Wall Street pessimists who have mainstream media to their advantage.

Shareholders Are Preparing for An AMC Short Squeeze

AMC Short Squeeze
Stock Market News: AMC’s high short interest and borrow fee indicate a short squeeze is near.

Shareholders are preparing for an AMC short squeeze as the stock continues to trend upwards and break new levels of resistance.

The movie theatre stock is up +18.40% on the month and up more than +37% in the past week.

Volume has steadily increased and even surpassed the average trading volume of 30 million.

AMC shareholders are speculating big moves may be underway as the rising price triggers short sellers to close out their positions.

AMC’s current short interest is still high at 19.76% per Fintel.

This means there is plenty of shorting in the stock for retail to trigger another massive price move like they did in January but more specifically in June of 2021 when the stock soared to $72 per share.

AMC short interest today

The company has performed well considering it almost faced bankruptcy early last year.

AMC Entertainment has beat quarterly earnings since 2021, striking confidence for an AMC short squeeze in 2022.

And the cost to borrow short shares has also skyrocketed in recent times.

Borrowers are now paying a whopping 66.4% to short the stock!

This is big news.

Let’s discuss it more below.

AMC Short Interest Today

According to Fintel, AMC’s short interest today is sitting at a high 19.76%.

AMC shot up to $72 per share last year when the stock was heavily shorted around 20% short interest.

AMC’s short interest came down to approximately 14% when it had reached its all-time high of $72.

The stock’s price may have come down a long way, but shorting has increased since and so has the short interest.

But AMC is seeing a slight bounce as it rejects the major level of support around $6 per share, currently trading between $7.50 and $8.

Heavy buying pressure is all the movie theatre stock needs to begin following previous trends back up to $9, $14, and $20+ levels.

If retail investors are able to successfully trigger this event, a short squeeze is inevitable.

What makes AMC more interesting now than ever is how high short sellers are paying to borrow the stock compared to earlier this year.

Stonk-O-Tracker is reporting a whopping 66.40% short borrow fee rate.

AMC Short borrow fee rate

This is the annual fee it is now costing hedge funds to short the recovering movie theatre chain.

Liquidation across the markets could explain the obligation to keep up with such a high fee.

But that’s not all, AMC’s short borrow fee rate was as high as 77.80% on Wednesday.

The question is, how long will hedge funds be able to keep up with these losses as retail investors continue to buy and hold AMC stock?

FUD Grows but the Community Still Stands

There are many doom prophets infiltrating the retail community urging investors to sell their AMC shares.

Claiming that AMC is dead, and it will never squeeze.

Now more than ever, short sellers opposing heavy retail volume are trying to scare shareholders out of their money.

But the AMC community is still standing strong.

Is an AMC short squeeze happening soon?

The probability of retail investors squeezing shorts again is not a far-fetched idea.

We could begin to see bigger price action very soon.

Report: AMC FTDs Spiked to $9.9 Million in October

Market News: AMC FTDs top $9.9 Million for the month of October.
Market News: AMC FTDs top $9.9 Million for the month of October.

The latest report on AMC FTDs shows failure-to-delivers spiked to $9,906,536 for the month of October so far, with data still coming in.

This is equivalent to 1,640,155 FTDs.

FTDs, or Failure-to-deliver occurs when one party in a trading contract (whether it’s shares, futures, or options) fails to deliver on their obligations.

These failures derive due to buyers not having enough money to take delivery and pay for the transaction at settlement.

In the case of sellers, it means not having the goods to meet that transaction.

Failure-to-deliver can occur in options trading or when selling short naked, per Investopedia.

AMC Entertainment has been a big target for short sellers looking to profit from the demise of the century old movie theatre chain.

Let’s discuss it.

AMC Gets Hammered by Clearing Houses

AMC FTDs - AMC Failure to deliver
AMC FTDs – Stocksera AMC Failure to Deliver.

According to Investopedia, AMC FTDs can occur if there is a technical problem in the settlement process carried out by the respective parties (clearing houses).

Seeing as Citadel Clearing LLC transacts orders worldwide, there’s a major conflict of interest here.

Ken Griffin’s Citadel LLC is short on AMC Entertainment stock, so there’s a very distinct connection here.

It’s unlikely FTDs have been a result of retail buyers since the majority are purchasing the equity on cash accounts where orders execute almost immediately.

Naked short selling seems to be the most probable cause here as $AMC has tumbled despite heavy retail interest.

So far, it seems like the SEC isn’t willing to tackle FTDs in both AMC and APE.

In fact, Gary Gensler says there’s a possibility that naked shorting isn’t even involved.

But I’m curious to know your thoughts on this.
