Why is AMC stock going up

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.

Volatility is normal in the stock market

We’ve seen a lot of volatility in the market recently. If you’re a new investor chances are you might have been scared off to sell and then noticed the stock slightly go up again in the green tier.

Don’t feel bad, volatility in the stock market is normal. This doesn’t just apply to AMC stock. But if you haven’t sold, kudos to you. #diamondhands.

So, what’s causing the stock to go back up? Well, there are numerous reasons why AMC is back in the green tier. Keep reading to find out whether this stock might be a good pick for you.

Reasons why AMC stock is going up

  1. Large institutions such as Wells Fargo, Vanguard, BMO Harris, Charles Schwab, Fidelity, & BlackRock are buying the stock right now (via. CNN Business)
  2. AMC CEO Adam Aron, announced bankruptcy is officially “off the table” and have raised $2.2 billion in cash this new year.
  3. Because AMC is currently the most shorted stock (via. MarketWatch), the stock price has gone up and will continue to go up as long as retail investors keep buying the stock. *Unfortunately MarketWatch has removed AMC from their list. Retail investors suspect foul play from this hedge fund partner.

AMC Entertainment is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy

There’s actually a lot of positive things going on for AMC Entertainment despite what The Fool, InvestorPlace and other shill news might try to convince you of.

The sentiment behind AMC stock keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger by the day. This is primarily because people are smarter than these hedge funds think. Ultimately, the data speaks for itself.

Now, Adam Aron who is the President and CEO of AMC Entertainment has done an outstanding job with the media. In this video we can hear his optimism for the movie theater chain before AMC theaters began to reopen.

Adam Aron clip as theaters were beginning to reopen

As of April 2021 all AMC movie theaters are now open with many even selling out.

If you’re familiar with Trey’s Trades you’ve more than likely seen his interview with Adam. I wrote a piece on this to highlight key moments of the interview.

You can check it out here.

AMC Q1 2021 Earnings

AMC just announced their Q1 earnings for 2021. Things are looking particularly bullish and optimistic to say the very least.

For the retail investor this means the upper hand is yours. AMC Entertainment has raised over $2 billion dollars to hold them off until the year 2022. And we still have to go through Q2, Q3, and Q4!

If you missed the conference you can check it out from Matt Kohrs imbedded here for your viewing pleasure.

AMC Q2 Earnings Call

I published an entire article on Q2 earnings call so be sure to read it here! AMC doubled their earnings and have a ton of exciting new things coming to movie theaters.

Key highlights include:

  • AMC accepting Bitcoin by the end of the year
  • Open to partnering up with GameStop!
  • Looking into licensing rights to show concerts and sports events on the big screen

AMC Entertainment has a great vision when it comes to innovation. I’m excited to see our movie theaters evolve to provide an even greater theatrical experience.

Fundamentals are also causing AMC stock to go up

AMC Entertainment as a company has a lot of partners and friends they’ve gained throughout the 100 years they’ve been in business.

They’ve been able to raise money to pay off debt and focus on ways to welcome people back to the movie theaters safely.

Revenue is a very positive factor playing into the fundamentals of AMC’s stock price action. AMC Entertainment is set to release a ton of awesome titles this year which has people excited for that movie theater experience.

AMC’s CEO is one great leader

With this being said, Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment is not backing down. Adam has talked about his experience saving Norwegian Cruise Line and how he intends to to keep AMC alive for as long as he lives to run the company.

If you haven’t seen his interview with Trey’s Trades you can watch the video embedded here for a more in depth perspective of what AMC Entertainment means to him.

Why are large institutions buying AMC stock?

Vanguard AMC

Speculation would point out AMC is possibly a good investment, contrary to what Yahoo Finance, The Fool, and other resources are leading the public to believe, right?

It is important to note that these institutions are purchasing millions in AMC stock. Just a side note here: if AMC isn’t a good investment like some sources are pumping out, then why are large institutions buying while the stock is low in price? Hmm..

My educated guess? Large institutions aren’t going to be wanting to miss out on upcoming gains from a short squeeze.

Aside from a short squeeze however, AMC Entertainment seems to be a good buy even as a long-term stock. Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC has shared his optimistic views towards the direction of his company.

AMC is a good buy with or without a short squeeze.

What is a short squeeze?

A short squeeze occurs when a stock jumps sharply higher, forcing short sellers to buy higher, causing them to lose money. This in turn makes the retail investor (you and I) a LOT of money.

This notion of an upcoming short squeeze is drawing in a lot of attention. This is why we’re seeing AMC stock go up as well. Its purchase share volume is going up.

And where there’s attention, there’s money to be made.

Volume is important for an AMC short squeeze

As more and more retail investors get in on AMC and continue to buy and hold, we’re going to keep experiencing the stock price rise.

Because volume is such an important factor, retail investors and institutions will need to not only buy the dips but the gains as well.

By buying the gains in increments, the market processes this as a demand in the stock; further driving up the share price.

The main reason why AMC stock will keep going up

A short squeeze needs volume

AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market.

Short-sellers such as Melvin Capital bet on the businesses like AMC to lose. These are the folk that don’t care about workers losing their jobs, or about the companies success. This hits home to most retail investors which means convictions towards AMC stock is strong.

The way these short-sellers make money is quite simple. They short the stock. However, they’re not making any money right now. In face, they’re upside down by billions of dollars.

Shorting a stock is the process by which sellers essentially bet on the stock price to drop. They borrow stocks at a higher cost and sell the stock low, profiting the difference and driving the share price to the ground.

Fortunately, retail investors like the stock and are against shorting it. This is why AMC continues to go up. Retail investors have all the time in the world to see this short squeeze through. Shorts however, are paying the price every day.

And if you’re wondering, yes this is exactly what occurred with GameStop. Except AMC might just be the MOASS (mother of all short squeezes).

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital

This is huge for retail investors. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock for quite some time now.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss it’s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

The importance of this is very significant. AMC is not a dead cat. Hedge funds continue to short the stock in hopes that they can reverse what’s been done. Unfortunately for them it’s only a matter of time before shorts are squeezed out of their positions due to the increase in short borrow fee and utilization of the stock.

AMC Entertainment has been heavily short laddered in the recent weeks. However, the stock seems to continuously correct itself which is why we’re seeing AMC go up again.

For some reason AMC does not like single digit numbers. This stock is going to continue to test high levels of support as fundamentals push the stock in an upwards trend. Fundamentals such as earnings will play a major role in this organic push up.

According to Robinhood, AMC is the most held stock beating both Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA)! Source: via Nasdaq.

This means AMC shareholders will eventually have leverage over the stock from short-sellers as the price goes up.

As long as retail investors continue to hold, we’ll begin to see a supply and demand situation.

Short-sellers will eventually have to buy from retail investors to cover their spots, inevitably driving AMC share price higher.

Positive AMC Theater news!

AMC movie theaters across the entire country are selling out! New releases are serving the movie theater industry very well.

Godzilla vs. Kong secures $9.6 million in ticket sales

AMC theater - Godzilla vs Kong

Warner Bros. said Thursday that “Godzilla vs. Kong” secured $9.6 million in ticket sales on its opening night. This has been a record debut for the pandemic. As of April 26th it has done over $400 million global!

Leave me a comment below if you watched the film. I personally loved everything about it.

Mortal Kombat & Demon Slayer outperform earnings

Mortal Kombat brought in 23.3 million its opening weekend. Critics expected Mortal Kombat to reach no more than 15 million. A huge victory for the cinema industry! Not only that but Demon Slayer drew in another whopping 19.5 million its opening weekend.

AMC theater Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat reps the biggest R-rated opening to-date during the pandemic. The beautiful thing is that we have other amazing titles coming to the movies that can continue to scale beyond these numbers.

The top 10 locations for Mortal Kombat were:

1. AMC Burbank Los Angeles, 2. Santikos Palladium San Antonio, 3. Cinemark Tinseltown El Paso, 4. Santikos Casa Blanca San Antonio, 5. AMC Orange Los Angeles, 6. Cinemark Pharr Town Center (Texas), 7. AMC Empire New York, 8. Cinemark Century 16 Corpus Christi, 9. AMC Gulf Pointe Houston, and 10. AMC Southlake Pavilion Atlanta.

Source, via. Deadline.

I have not watched Demon Slayer yet but Mortal Kombat was a fun film to watch. I grew up on the video games (shoutout to GameStop) and the older films so seeing this today made my year. If you have not gone out to your local AMC theater I recommend you do.

A Quiet Place Part II: $57 Million Pandemic Record

A Quiet Place Part 2 earnings
Movie theater earnings: A Quiet Place Part 2

A Quiet Place Part 2 debuted in theaters on Friday May 28 and broke pandemic records in the cinema industry.

Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part 2 topped Godzilla vs. Kong and Mortal Kombat combined on their opening night reaching $57 million over the Memorial Day Weekend. A huge congrats to the industry and AMC Entertainment.

As more Americans continue to get vaccinated, health concerns ease. AMC Entertainment is seeing a critical mass effect as the public feels safer. I’m personally happy for the century old company and its shareholders invested in the stock.

The Conjuring Earns $11.5 Million Opening Weekend in the U.S.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It earned $11.5 million its opening weekend and grossing 57.1 million worldwide. Congrats to James Wan and the movie theater industry. The Conjuring films are currently the top grossing horror franchise of all time with $1.9 billion at the global box office.

Wall Street analyst upgrades AMC Theatres

Wall street analyst says, ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ “Destroys lingering concerns around theatrical window importance and demonstrates a solid path to resurgence”, via. Hollywood Reporter.

Eric Wold goes on to say, “Consumers want to leave the house and return to the theater.”

There seems to be a massiveness of positivity going around for the theater industry, especially AMC being the leader. As AMC continues to increase their sales revenue with hit titles, you can expect AMC’s stock price to continue surging. Massive victory for the AMC theaters!

Upcoming movie news and revenue will be updated here so be sure to follow me on Twitter to know when the post has been updated.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

In short, no. With the price of AMC stock being affordable to majority of the public, it’s a steal right now. Especially considering it has set a new floor in the low $30 range and has touched $50 per share twice now. Once in June and again in September.

The ‘ape’ community plans on taking this stock above $100 fundamentally through buying pressure before squeezing shorts from their positions.

I strongly believe AMC will do great post pandemic, and apparently so do other institutions (with or without a short squeeze).

When Do Shorts Have to Cover Their Positions? (AMC)

When do shorts have to cover their position?

Every retail investor holding a position in AMC wants to know, when will shorts cover their positions? And I don’t blame you.

This one is a little tricky. See, it’s like saying, “when will retail investors sell their positions?”

franknez.com - when do shorts have to cover their positions AMC

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

Let’s get started!

Retail investors have been waiting patiently for AMC Entertainment stock to rip. You’ve been holding through the ups and downs and even buying the dips.

So, why aren’t shorts covering their positions yet? What do retail investors need to do to squeeze hedge funds out of their money?

Are shorts obligated to close their positions?

Let’s start with the fundamental question. Are shorts obligated to close their positions? Now, there are currently no rules regarding how long a short can hold before closing out their position.

However, lenders do have the right to demand the seller closes their position with minimal notice. This is rare and only occurs if the the seller isn’t paying the interest fee, or the interest fee is ridiculously high.

“A short position may be maintained as long as the investor is able to honor the margin requirements and pay the required interest and the broker lending the shares allows them to be borrowed.” – Investopedia

When an interest fee is extremely high, it makes a stock difficult to borrow which obligates the short seller to close their positions.

AMC’s short borrow fee rate as of 9/17 is: 0.90% according to Stonk-O-Tracker.

Keep an eye on this interest as it will determine just how much shorts are bleeding. Hedge funds currently shorting the stock are losing money every day. And regrettably for them it’s getting worse the longer they hold. I can feel a short squeeze coming.

Why does the short borrow fee matter?

The short borrow fee is an interest that shorts must pay for borrowing AMC shares. And although the interest continues to rise for them, shorts aren’t going down without a fight.

AMC short borrow fee interest

They will hold in hopes to drive AMC’s share price right back down to the floor. However, AMC is trending upwards now and has absolutely no intention of going back down.

Analysts data and AI predictions all point towards a high possibility of a short squeeze. Even Fintel’s short squeeze score has been as high as 80-90% in recent weeks.

AMC Short squeeze Score Fintel

This short borrow fee is going to continue to go up as AMC stock becomes harder to borrow.

For short sellers, a low short borrow fee is in their favor. They would much rather pay the fee and stubbornly continue to hold their positions against retail investors.

But, if the short borrow fee is high enough to hurt the borrower, they will be more inclined to close their positions before losing an excruciating amount of money.

The short sellers conviction is strong, even though they’ve already lost. It’s only a matter of time before they have no other option than to forfeit.

How can retail investors help drive the short borrow fee up?

Retail investors can help drive the short borrow fee up simply by holding their positions.

When AMC squeezes, retail investors will have to continue to hold their position on the way up. Not every short will close their positions immediately.

If we begin to see AMC’s price action rise monumentally, it is important to understand that there’s more potential because not every short seller has closed their position.

We might see AMC drop a little after it peaks. However, if retail investors continue to hold, it’s only going to continue squeezing more and more shorts resulting an further perpetual gains.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Community, this is massive. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock. These are the people trying to drive the stock to the ground.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss it’s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider. Unfortunately for them, this is only going to get worse.

Retail investors are hodling to the moon. They are not waiting for $100 price action anymore, and some are certainly not waiting for $500+ share price anymore. The Reddit community is set new standards for the AMC’s stock price.

Here’s why this matters:

  • Not only are shorts losing money every day but huge hedge funds are bleeding billions of dollars due to retail investors holding
  • This is a huge win for retail investors – our favorite companies have been saved
  • Unless shorts close their positions, hedge funds will continue to suffer
  • Interest rates will continue to skyrocket for short sellers, enabling them to close their positions sooner than later
  • An AMC short squeeze might be closer than we think

Here’s what retail investors can do:

  1. Continue to hold your positions, it’s free
  2. Buy the dips to counter any short attacks
  3. Share articles on social platforms that can provide value to the community and keep everyone informed
  4. Keep a close eye on the stocks performance so you do not miss the squeeze

Hedge funds are not going to be able to recover from this. Yes they can possible receive help from huge banks but this too will be at a cost.

Furthermore, borrowing money from banks won’t change the fact that shorts still have to cover their positions. Retail investors are buying AMC stock every day. Shorts are fighting a war they cannot win.

Important advisory: I am not a licensed financial advisory. I simply have a passion for finance and writing.

What happens when a short covers their position?

A short position will be profitable if it is covered at a lower price than the initial transaction; it is at a loss if it is covered at a higher price.

In AMC’s case, shorts who drove the price down to $5 but are still holding to-date are at a loss. AMC is currently trading at $44.20 as of September 17th.

When there’s a ton of short covering happening in a particular stock, it will result in a short squeeze.

What is a short squeeze?

What is a short squeeze?

A short squeeze occurs when a stock spikes in price action due to an increase of short-sellers closing out their positions.

We’ve seen a short squeeze happen with both GameStop and Volkswagen. GME topped almost $500 while Volkswagen spiked shy below $1,000 back in 2008.

Short squeezes are massively profitable for retail investors. These one-time phenomena are how people are able to accumulate wealth in such little time.

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

So, when will AMC shorts cover?

Instead of exiting, short sellers are holding. Some shorts might be waiting for a more favorable price to close their positions.

Another way shorts will be forced to close their positions in AMC is through a margin call. This is when their accounts don’t have the sufficient funds to meet the accounts minimum amount of dollar required. At this point they are forced to liquidate.

Now, because there’s no rule to how long they can hold their positions, they’re in the long game like most retail investors waiting on a short squeeze to happen are.

The good news is that AMC bankruptcy is no longer on the table and Wall Street analysts are even saying the industry is on a solid path to resurgence, via Hollywood Reporter.

As we continue to see a high utilization and the short borrow fee increase, we can only expect shorts will cover sooner than later.

Related: AMC Margin Call: The Squeeze is Inevitable

What percent does the short borrow fee have to be?

AMC’s short borrow fee is currently at 0.90%, via. Stonk-O-Tracker on 9/13. AMC stock is getting harder and harder to borrow. There seems to be some sort of manipulation here. The interest should be much higher.

Short sellers have been borrowing millions of shares to short. It seems they thought AMC’s 500 million share dilution was going to go through. Funny enough Adam Aron, the CEO and President of AMC Entertainment actually scrapped that idea leaving short sellers in a deeper hole.

I personally think retail investors are going to experience the short squeeze of a lifetime. Strap in.

AMC’s price action will continue to go up

Journalists and analysts alike are now claiming AMC to be a big buy. Shorts can continue to hold their loses on paper for months to come, or close their positions while it’s at the current price action.

Closing now is recommended due to an overwhelming amount of attention AMC Entertainment has received.

With new titles coming to AMC movie theaters soon, we’re only going to continue to see a surge in price action due to an increase in the company’s sales revenue.

Even if shorts continue to hold, lenders will eventually run up the interest rate again and force them to cover. If you’re a retail investor reading this article, I’m already celebrating your success. Leave a comment below and let the community know what a short squeeze would mean for you.

AMC is on the ‘Potential Short Squeeze’ list via. Fox Business

AMC Continues To Be The Most Shorted Stock In The Market

AMC continues to be the most shorted stock in the market
AMC stock continues to be heavily shorted

AMC Entertainment stock has caused havoc for short sellers shorting the stock. Hedge funds have proven to lose billions of dollars from the ongoing ‘meme’ stock frenzy.

Momentum stocks, as I like to call them, are more than just plays for money. Retail investors have conjured up a real movement for change.

And although mainstream financial news platforms say it’s over, it’s far from it. Hedge funds betting against AMC just borrowed more than 4 million shares to short the stock.

They just dug themselves a deeper hole.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the best blog for new and seasoned retail investors. Today we’re discussing AMC Entertainment stock.

Lets get started!

Is AMC Stock Shorted?

Short sellers just borrowed more than 4 million shares to short the stock. Although AMC has had major buying pressure all year, shorts continue to attack retail and the company.

The community wants to see chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler, take action towards banning activities such as naked shorting, dark pool trading, and PFOF.

The SEC was created in 1929 after the infamous Stock Market Crash of 1929 to protect retail investors against the manipulation from hedge funds and short sellers. However, it was established in 1934 with the passage of the Securities Exchange Act, a law formerly governing the trade of securities.

Overleveraged positions in the markets have been the cause for economic meltdowns resulting in significant losses for the American people. Our government has always had the power to fix the biggest problems retail investors currently face.

Why no real regulation has truly protected retail investors is the big question. Talks of ongoing investigations have risen but actions will have to speak louder than words.

AMC’s stock price continues to be suppressed through overleveraged means only hedge funds and short sellers have access to. The ape community has sparked a movement towards fighting for a fair market and aren’t going anywhere until real change has occurred.

How Can We Appoint New Leaders In The SEC?

Members of the SEC are appointed by the President of The United States himself.

The SEC is headed by a five-member board of commissioners. Members are appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the United States Senate.

The president does not have the authority to remove members once they are confirmed. No more than three commissioners may belong to the same political party. The president appoints one board member to serve as chair.

Change will only happen if we the people voice our concerns publicly. We have the right and the power to overthrow any form of incompetent government.

We must let these powers know that we see them and understand that they have the power to make things right. There are more than 4 million of us in this community. Our voice is our strength.

Will AMC Continue To Run Up?

I’ve been in this community since early February and the sentiment has not changed. 80% of AMC’s float is now owned by retail investors and the movement keeps growing. The stock market is based on supply and demand, and so retail investors are in command.

Although AMC’s share price is being suppressed by heavy shorting in the market, AMC Entertainment stock will continue to run up as long as retail investors continue to buy the stock.

Which isn’t going to be a problem by the way. AMC is more than just a stock, it’s a movement.

Hedge Funds Will Continue To Face Mounting Losses

There are no signs of retail letting off the gas pedal. Investors in the ape community continue to buy the dips and hold their stock no matter the pressure.

Short sellers have already lost billions this year and continue to mount losses in liquidity and debt.

Betting on this stock, the company, and its massive community has been a terrible financial decision.

What Financial Institutions Are Shorting AMC Stock?

AMC Entertainment is currently being shorted by numerous hedge funds and financial institutions. Here’s a list:

  1. Simplex Trading LLC
  2. Susquehanna International Group LLP
  3. Citadel Advisors LLC
  4. 683 Capital Management LLC
  5. Anchorage Capital Group LLC
  6. Group One Trading LP
  7. Wolverine Trading LLC
  8. Bank of America Corp DE
  9. Millennium Management LLC
  10. Piction Mahoney Asset Management

AMC Has Changed Millions of Lives

AMC Entertainment has changed the lives of movie goers through the theatrical experience we’ve all missed since the lockdowns. The company has unintentionally sparked a movement greater than ourselves, resulting in the resurrection of the movie theater industry during the process.

And it’s changed the lives of millions of retail investors, netting significant profits to majority of its shareholders.

Whether you’re holding for a short squeeze or to be part of a community with a movement, you cannot deny AMC has attracted change. So, lets continue to be that change the world and our community needs.

It looks as if AMC has now entered bullish territory. And yet again sources such as The Fool and other hedge fund partners are trying to steer the public from investing in this specific stock. Shame on you shills. Well, just how high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

AMC stock price closed at $44.20 on September 17th. The share volume rose and remains healthy as AMC prepares to take off. We have broken the $30 and $40 levels of consolidation. How soon will AMC rip?

AMC Entertainment has had an amazing runup this year. The crazy thing is shorts haven’t even begun to close their positions. Ladies and gentlemen, the short squeeze hasn’t even started.

Most of the market has been on sale and AMC has been no exception to that until now. AMC wants to keep climbing. The stock continues to consolidate as short sellers find loopholes to short the stock.

As some of you know, I update this article frequently. I update it with the intraday price action as well as any information pertaining to the stocks performance. A lot of the information on here will be left untouched as it is a means to archive a lot of the information from throughout the year.

What do we know about AMC stock price?

AMC’s stock price continues to be volatile although we’ve seen the stock is scared of single digit share price numbers.

No matter how many times this stock is attacked by short sellers, it keeps correcting itself upwards.

AMC stock price bull market

Key highlights

  1. We’re seeing AMC stock price enter bullish territory due to an increase of retail investors buying the stock.
  2. ‘W’ shape formations in the performance of the stock also indicate bullish territory.
  3. Retail investors and large institutions alike, like the stock. Buyers include Vanguard, Charles Schwab, Wells Fargo, and BlackRock.
  4. What causes AMC stock price to rise during ‘power hour’ is how many more shares are being purchased before trading hours close. As retail investors continue to buy the dip and hold, we’re going to continue to see this trend of perpetual gains.
  5. The stock price is still relatively low enough for majority of people to buy, but hurry before it’s too late.
  6. The short borrow fee continues to increase, this means shorts will have to close their positions soon

I wrote a small piece on Adam Aron being rightfully named the king ape here.

AMC’s Short Borrow Fee

AMC short borrow fee interest

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 9/17 is: 0.90% via. Stonk-O-Tracker.

The longer shorts-sellers hold their positions means the higher the borrow fee may increase. This is great news for retail investors.

Shorts eventually have to cover their positions and when they do, AMC’s stock price action will continue to rise, inevitably creating a short squeeze.

Why AMC’s short borrow fee matters

While it costs the retail investor nothing to hold their position in AMC, it costs shorts interest.

Shorts are more willing to hold their positions if the short borrow fee is low so they’re losing money every day they hold.

Remember, shorts still think they can bankrupt a company that is no longer going bankrupt.. I know right?

As hedge funds like Melvin Capital lose money, the short borrow fee will go up to make up for some loses. As the interest goes up, shorts will naturally cover. If they don’t, they will bleed bad. With the short borrow fee being so high at the moment, it has retail investors speculating a short squeeze will start soon.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital AMC stock
Hedge Fund Melvin Capital – AMC Entertainment

Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GameStop. Well it turns out holding has paid off one way. The company was down almost half percent their first quarter of 2021!

These are people who want to put your favorite businesses out of business. Ladies and gentlemen, the good guys always win.

If retail investors keep holding, institutions are going to raise the short borrow fee. Unless hedge funds don’t start closing their short positions, they will cease to exist. Or at least cease to run operations until they open a new firm from scratch. But who will trust them? Their clients are losing money.

Hedge funds are a sinking ship

Hedge funds are losing money shorting AMC stock

Cramer said, anyone shorting AMC and GameStop are going to lose. And he’s right. Retail investors are holding until shorts are squeezed out of their positions.

Shorts can either:

  1. Take the loses and close their positions right now where the stock price is around $44.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $44, resulting in even bigger losses.

Ladies and gentlemen, shorts could have closed at $5. With that being said, short sellers have lost more than a billion dollars this second quarter according to Ortex data.

Things are not looking so good for them. And it’s about to get a whole lot worse as AMC stock continues to surge.

How will this affect AMC stock price?

I can imagine shorts and hedge funds alike must be furious. The little guy causing a disruption, what!?!

My personal take is retail investors are going to continue to see foul play. You’re going to experience this from bogus headlines. They’ll usually try to steer the public from buying AMC stock to keep the volume and hype down.

Not sure if hedge funds know this yet but you do know documentaries of what’s taking place are in the works right?

Independent filmmakers such as the Mulligan Brothers will be covering this story from the retail investors perspective and rumor has it Netflix will be writing as well.

Expect AMC stock price to rise and continue to be shorted. We will see volatility with shorts attacking the price action. They do this by trading synthetic shares at low bids.

AMC Gamma squeeze before short squeeze

AMC Entertainment is currently the most shorted stock in the market (via. MarketWatch).

AMC Gamma Squeeze Before Short Squeeze
AMC Most Shorted Stock

Unfortunately, MarketWatch has completely eliminated AMC from their list. Retail investors are suspecting foul play from the hedge fund affiliates.

Because AMC is an extremely high shorted stock, analysts continue to demonstrate their conviction towards an AMC short squeeze.

The key here is for retail investors to hold their positions as they see some momentum beginning to build. #diamondhands

Key: If investors want to see AMC squeeze, they’ll have to refrain from selling at the sight of early profits.

AMC stock predictions (analyst)

AMC prediction from Fidelity TRADER PRO

Trey’s Trades walks us through the positive moves AMC has been making from an analysts perspective. Trey presents his audience with transparent information and has been a key player in the analytics world for ticker symbol AMC.

Although this video is an earlier video, Trey’s videos are packed with relevant information that still apply to where the stock is today.

r/wallstreet bets and Discord

Members over at r/wallstreetbets and Discord anticipate AMC stock price can skyrocket as high as $1,000-$10,000 mainly due to the stock’s popularity and trends in analytics. Yup, that’s crypto numbers.

The number of phantom shares hedge funds have to cover is astronomical which is why the community is calling this the mother of all short squeezes (MOASS).

AMC stock price wallstreetbets

By holding shares in AMC, retail investors are setting up a supply and demand scenario where short-sellers will eventually need to buy from them.

This in turn can drive the stock up as high as the retail investor chooses, theoretically speaking.

Large institutions such as Vanguard, Wells Fargo, BMO Harris, BlackRock, Fidelity and many more are buying AMC stock while it’s still low (via. CNN Business).

Take that for what it is.

Whether that number comes to fruition or not, retail investors will have to continue to hold and to add to their positions in order to skyrocket AMC’s share price.

We’re seeing more and more retail investors join the fight against short-sellers. Short-sellers are the investors betting on AMC Entertainment to lose.

Read: When do shorts have to cover their position? (AMC)

Can AMC reach $100K or $500K per share?

There’s been a lot of speculation that due to the possible number of outstanding synthetics could be in the billions, AMC may potentially squeeze past 6-figures.

Personally, I’m open to this concept. Shouldn’t we all be? I just recently found ReviewDork on YouTube. Gabe talks about this possibility and walks us through some math. Check him out.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

If you’re looking to take on a position in AMC you might want to get on the train before it takes off for good. If you’re looking to get in for the short squeeze play, AMC stock is currently on bargain. This stock is still heavily shorted!

Retail investors are teaming up together to see their visions come to fruition. And they’re not waiting on anyone.

What we do know is that the current share price is still affordable for most people.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

AMC stock consolidation

AMC hasn’t squeezed for two primary reasons.

  1. The volume isn’t all there yet. The volume needs to be quite high. Trey’s Trades referenced 500+ million being an outstanding number.
  2. Shorts are holding – they need to close their positions if retail investors are to squeeze them.

It’s not illegal for shorts to hold long on their positions; however, they lose money every day they hold.

Fortunately for retail investors it’s free to hold.

Read: When do shorts have to cover their positions ? (AMC)

What will AMC’s stock price be when it squeezes?

AMC

AMC’s stock price can really be anywhere. It really depends on when shorts close their positions.

Short could have covered when they drove the price back down to $8. It would have been wise considering the stock continues to correct itself in an upward trend and has now set itself up for the perfect squeeze.

If shorts continue to play the long game, AMC’s stock price could potentially be higher when it squeezes. In this case, shorts would have lost a lot more money due to accumulating and rising short borrow fees.

Can AMC squeeze after hours?

A question some people might have is whether or not AMC could potentially squeeze after hours.

AMC can certainly squeeze after hours when the market closes. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if it did this. AMC’s stock price would continue to surge as retail investors watch immobile.

For one, shorts could decide to cover before the market closes in attempts to throw one final blow to retail investors. This would give the price action to potentially come back down after hours.

Should you worry?

I wouldn’t worry if this was the case. Although squeezes can last anywhere between minutes to hours, they can certainly last days too.

Volkswagen’s squeeze back in 2008 lasted approximately four days. GameStop’s lasted even longer.

Here’s how you can prepare for a short squeeze

A squeeze can technically happen at any time. The short interest doesn’t necessarily have to be high. Shorts could choose to close their positions with little loss opposed to massive losses.

  1. If you’re in a position to keep an open tab on your browser that is updated AMC’s stock price in real-time then I would suggest doing so.
  2. Own an Apple watch? Keep the stock in your background. This is a very convenient way to keeping tabs on the stocks performance.
  3. Join discords where you can be notified when something massive is going on.

When a squeeze happens you’ll know. Just don’t get a short squeeze confused with gamma squeezes.

Gamma squeezes are usually small spikes resulting from extremely bullish actions coming together at once. Otherwise known as relatively healthy gains of built momentum.

A short squeeze will be something more sudden and disruptive. You’ll know when this goes to the moon. AMC’s stock price will break through the charts and leave earths atmosphere.

What should I do when AMC squeezes?

AMC stock price short squeeze

This is completely up to you! Congrats for holding and seeing this through.

You can choose to sell your entire position and collect your profits or you can continue to hold and find out whether the squeeze continues to go up.

Unfortunately, we can’t time the spike. For all we know, the initial squeeze might not be the potential price action. This makes it difficult to calculate the best time to sell.

You could sell a portion of position and wait to see how AMC’s stock price moves.

We created a thread for you to share how you will use the money when AMC squeezes as a means to spread positivity and share with the community. You can check it out here.

What is a circuit breaker halt?

A circuit breaker is usually a rule in the market that essentially pauses or halts trading for 5-15 minutes.

A common circuit breaker type is the Volatility Pause. This helps smooth volatility in the market and prevent flash crashes. It forces traders to take a 5 minute timeout, research the stock, news, etc. Often times if a stock is spiking up and is halted, it will reopen higher.

Inversely, a stock selling off will often open lower.

Why this is worth mentioning

This is worth mentioning because it’s important for our readers and the ape community to be aware of possible halts as AMC’s stock price becomes more volatile. If you happen to experience a circuit breaker halt do not panic. It’s a policy to make sure trading goes as smooth as possible.

Important Advisory

It is important to note that I am not a licensed financial advisor. Like many traders and self taught investors, all speculation is based on educated estimations based on highly reliable analysis, patterns, and documented news charts.

Note: Before roaring kitty blew up as the analyst for GME, only a handful of people followed him through and reaped the rewards.

We’re seeing another analyst obtain a similar following with AMC. Take that for what it is.

Where can I invest in AMC? What’s a good platform?

AMC stock price: quick overview

AMC sat around $5 for quite some time before moving back up to the $14 range. We’re currently seeing AMC trade at $44.20. AMC’s stock price has been trending upwards with consolidation and has been less volatile. This is very good price movement. AMC stock has never had a healthier setup.

What a storm. What a battle right? AMC keeps on keeping on, and although AMC has been on discount recently, the stock has finally broken its $30 level of resistance.

Retail investors are very excited about the data that’s been collected for months now. Will we see an AMC short squeeze while we continue to ride this bull? And if so, how soon?

franknez.com

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!

How soon will we see an AMC short squeeze? Retail investors all want to know. Is it this week? Will it be next week? Or, are we looking at a longer game here? Here’s what we know.

Key Highlights

  • AMC closed at $44.20 on September 17th. The stock has surged since early this year due to volume despite short sellers attacking it. AMC Entertainment is set up for a short squeeze.
  • The perfect time to buy AMC stock is when the market is red, or what we refer to as on ‘discount’. AMC is looking bullish though, red days might just be over.
  • AMC entertainment continues to be the most heavily shorted stock in the market.
  • AMC’s short borrow fee continues to increase.

Some of you reading this article might have been holding since February now. Kuddos to you for holding the line. If you’re a new retail investor getting in on AMC be sure to thank the seasoned apes when you get a chance.

Below is a series of documented facts and positive news that all influence AMC’s potential towards a short squeeze. One thing is certain, it’s inevitable.

AMC stock news and highlights

FOX Business reported AMC to have a strong chance of a short squeeze. Coming from a big news platform it certainly brings the stock sentiment up for most retail investors.

This is the type of news retail investors need to keep an eye out for.

AMC Short Squeeze News Fox Business
Strong chance of a short squeeze – Fox Business AMC

AMC is still currently the most shorted stock in the market.

Unfortunately, MarketWatch has completely obliterated AMC from their list. Being a hedge fund affiliate, retail investors suspect foul play.

President and CEO of AMC Entertainment Adam Aron, announced AMC will reopen all 13 AMC theaters in New York City as of March 5th. As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open across the United States with many selling out.

Check out what Adam Aron had to say (via. Investor Relations AMC)

“Since reopening our first theatres with AMC Safe & Clean in August, AMC has welcomed back nearly 10 million moviegoers nationwide without a single reported case of COVID-19 transmission among moviegoers at our theatres. We look forward to welcoming back our New York City guests to the big seats, big sounds and big screens that are only possible at a movie theatre.”

Adam aron, President and CEO of AMC Entertainment

For those who thought AMC was a dead company, think again. The company is now generating big revenue since it’s reopening.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital AMC Stock
Melvin Capital Hedge Fund – AMC

This is huge! Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss it’s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

Here’s why this matters:

  • Not only are shorts losing money every day but huge hedge funds are bleeding
  • This is a huge win for retail investors
  • Unless shorts close their positions, hedge funds will continue to suffer
  • Interest rates can skyrocket for short sellers enabling them to close their positions
  • An AMC short squeeze might be closer than we think

Here’s what retail investors can do:

  1. Continue to hold your positions, it’s free
  2. Buy the dips to counter any short attacks
  3. Share articles on social platforms that can provide value to the community
  4. Keep a close eye on the stock to not miss the squeeze

I’m going to discuss a little more on the short borrow fee that continues to increase for these hedge funds shorting the stock. This is going to be a massive component to a short squeeze.

Positive news for AMC Entertainment

Adam Aron gives positive news on AMC Entertainment
  • AMC Entertainment has raised more than 2.2 billion dollars in cash
  • 90% of AMC theaters in the United States are now open with New York and Los Angeles finally reopening
  • Vaccinations and policies are making movie theaters safe
  • New movie titles are guaranteed to increase sales revenues
  • CEO and President Adam Aron expresses an optimistic future for AMC Entertainment
  • AMC Entertainment has implemented a Safe & Clean program under the advisement from Harvard University’s prestigious School of Public health as well as well as the No. 1 U.S. cleaning brand, The Clorox Company. This means movie goers can now return at ease knowing a proper sanitation program has been put in place.

Hedge fund affiliate partners such as MarketWatch, The Fool, and other finance website have been trying to redirect the public from investing in this stock. That’s primarily because hedge funds are losing millions by the day.

A short squeeze could even put them out of business. This is why it’s important for me to spread the positive news surrounding AMC. I don’t believe in the manipulation of the media and I will continue to update these articles as more great news unfolds.

There will not be a 500 million AMC share dilution!

In recent news, Adam Aron has announced that AMC Entertainment no longer plans on proceeding with the plans of adding 500 million more AMC shares to the arsenal in a tweet on Tuesday, April 27th.

Adam Aron AMC Entertainment CEO Twitter

You can read AMC Entertainment’s official announcement on their press release page here.

Is AMC Shorted?

AMC’s short interest is close to 20%. As of 9/17, we’re seeing 4,200,000 short shares have been made available to borrow, via Stonk-O-Tracker. AMC continues to be heavily shorted despite what mainstream media claims.

AMC’s short shares available will be updated here so be sure to bookmark this page.

Was Adam Aron’s approval request of a 500 and 25 million share dilution to his shareholders a strategy to trick shorts into borrowing more shares? I personally think so and it’s absolutely genius. Shorts continue to borrow shares.

While shorts might have the capability to short AMC stock, this is only temporary. They will run out of borrowed shares and eventually have to cover. There are finally investigations going around regarding naked shorting.

Yeah.. I sense a grand mother of all short squeezes. #GMOASS

What does this mean for the AMC shareholder?

Expect to see gains after shorts have run out of borrowed shares to use. Hedge funds and short sellers alike have dug a deeper hole for themselves. What this means for the AMC shareholder is a squeeze bigger than anything the market has ever seen before. I am personally doubling down.

Not only is bankruptcy off the table (via. Los Angeles Times), but AMC movie theaters are now about to begin reopening in larger parts of the United States. Which of course now introduces revenue.

AMC Q1 earnings for 2021

AMC announced their Q1 earnings for 2021 on Thursday, May 6th. Things are looking particularly bullish and optimistic to say the very least.

For the retail investor this means the upper hand is yours. AMC Entertainment has raised over $2 billion dollars to hold them off until the year 2022. And we still have to go through Q2, Q3, and Q4!

Unfortunately for hedge funds shorting the stock, it’s over. If you missed the conference call you can view it here for your viewing pleasure.

AMC Q1 2021 highlights

  • The AMC community is recognized
  • Q1 earnings are higher than last years 4th quarter
  • Expectations for Q2 – Q4 are much higher
  • Food and beverage sales are up by 45%
  • Sales revenue will continue to rise as new titles are being released

AMC Q2 earnings for 2021

Quarter 2 earnings for AMC were absolutely amazing! I published an entire article on this information you can read all about here.

AMC Q2 2021 highlights

  • Record breaking $2 billion in liquidity
  • Increased revenue / tickets & concession
  • AMC to accept Bitcoin by the end of the year
  • GameStop partnership
  • Enhancing the cinema experience with sports and music performance

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

It’s really hard to tell. Even experts can’t identify an exact date and time. However, the possibility of an AMC short squeeze is certainly possible given that it is still the most shorted stock in the market and the stocks volume continues to rise. We also now have more data then ever before that indicate a massive short squeeze is almost certain to happen. Especially now that the SEC has announced some crackdown on shorting.

With Melvin Capital and other hedge funds losing money, it’s only a matter of time before the short borrow fee continues to skyrocket and shorts have to close their positions.

It’s tendie time!

Analyst AMC predictions

With that being said, Trey’s Trades predicts a short squeeze is now certainly guaranteed. Trey has been a leader in the AMC community and deserves a spot on this page.

More data points towards the stock reaching $1000+ per share.

See what stock analyst Trey has to say.

AMC short squeeze

The real questions is how can retail investors make this AMC short squeeze happen?

We know that short-sellers eventually have to cover their spots. This means that they will eventually have to buy AMC stock at the current share price.

  1. If retail investors continue to drive the share price up by buying the dip and holding their positions, short-sellers will have no other option than to buy from the retail investor at a higher share price.

NOTE: Retail investors do have to sell a bit as the price goes up in order to keep that momentum. Look at it as giving rats crumbs. Not only will they want more but they’ll need more.

2. Retail investors will also need to buy the climbs in order to show a demand for the stock. This doesn’t have to be huge buys, rather incremental to validate the current share price.

This play essentially creates a supply and demand scenario between retail investors and short-sellers. The results? A short squeeze.

Hedge funds are doing everything they can to prevent a short squeeze

How are they doing this?

  • By promoting false information online (we’re certain you’ve seen it)
  • Through strategies such as short-ladder attacks in the market
  • And, by restricting certain brokerage accounts from allowing its retail investors to purchase or buy shorted stocks (Robing hood)
AMC Gorilla

This is what retail investors can do to fight corruption

  • Share content that presents facts (blog posts, analysis videos, etc.)
  • Continue to educate yourself and make investment decisions based on your personal analysis
  • Protect the community and one another
  • Follow your instincts

What will a short squeeze look like?

We’ll begin to see a trend similar to that of GME (Gamestop). AMC will enter a bullish territory before hitting an ‘abnormal’ peak in which AMC would have ‘squoze’.

What will an AMC short squeeze look like?

According to Trey’s Trades we’ve already hit the bottom. AMC continues to be heavily shorted through dark pools. This price level can be seen as a buying opportunity for retail investors looking to squeeze shorts out of their positions. We’ve seen resistant levels around $14-$16 recently which is a great push from $5. We’re now sitting at 44.20 per share.

Recent performance and news is leaving retail investors with positive speculations. An AMC short squeeze will certainly make headlines. Expect to see various gains prior to any sort of major peak as well as volatility.

Retail investors will have to hold their positions through upcoming gains if they want to see AMC short squeeze.

But most importantly, they’ll have to refrain from selling at the first sight of gains if they are to see bigger and more massive gains.

Gamma squeeze vs Short squeeze

Don’t confuse gains and momentum with a short squeeze.

Here’s the difference between a gamma squeeze and a short squeeze:

A gamma squeeze are momentum gains. These usually occur from call options closing in the pocket resulting in heavy buys or purchases in the market.

A short squeeze is vigorous and can spike with no warning. This is where you see 100% gains in a matter of seconds and minutes. A short squeeze can even reach 1000% and 10,000% gains.

AMC Short Squeeze Stock Prediction

New retail investors are wondering whether $1k, $10k, or even $100k per share is even possible.

Gabe from ReviewDork does some math that’s going to leave you with an open mind.

AMC stock price predictions range from $1,000 to $100k+.

Will AMC reach peaks like GME?

AMC has been fortunate enough to receive more publicity and hype than GME did, at least recently. The volume will speak for itself and retail investors will just have to wait to find out.

We’ve seen that abnormal gains are naturally part of a short squeeze. Volkswagen rose up to nearly $1,000 when it squeezed back in 2008 due to a similar strategy produced by car manufacturer Porsche.

Analysts are predicting AMC can even go above the $1K mark if retail investors and institutions alike continue to buy and hold their positions. Wouldn’t this be something. If you’re holding 1,000 shares and AMC spikes to $1K per share, you my friend have made 1 million dollars!

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

Absolutely not, at least not yet. AMC Entertainment is still heavily shorted. You will have to decide whether its current share price is worth it if trades at $100, $500, or even $1,000+. AMC Entertainment stock has not even started squeezing yet.

Redditors have touched base on this topic and advise anything below $100 is a buy. I’ve been personally buying the stock when it dips. This allows me to pick up more shares at a discount.

If you’re a beginner, I recommend buying 5-10 shares of AMC stock. This amount will give you a feel of the market. Not only is it affordable, but if the market is red you won’t see much loss on paper.

Where was AMC trading at before the pandemic?

AMC was actually trading between $30-$35 back in the booming party economy of 16′! AMC stock started to decline as their debt increased and hedge funds began to heavily short it.

Short sellers could have covered back in August when AMC’s stock price was trading at $30 levels. However, it doesn’t AMC is going back down to these levels. We broke past $50 and are trending upwards again, though we are seeing heavy shorting in the market.

Read: AMC stock is primed to bounce back up: MOASS

What if a short squeeze doesn’t happen?

If an AMC short squeeze doesn’t occur, AMC stock price will still go up allowing shareholders to make at least some sort of profit.

With AMC theaters now open, it’s inevitable that the company will begin to see bigger sales revenue every time a new title is released. I update this post when new titles make the headlines regarding earnings.

Keep in mind that AMC’s share price during the booming party economy of 16′ was roughly around $30 per share. If a short squeeze doesn’t happen, fundamentals will continue to bring the stock up as more investors are buying the stock.

However, a short squeeze not happening is very unlikely as AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market and most held stock, beating both Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA), via. NASDAQ. Majority of the float is also held by retail investors and short sellers are going to be forced to close their positions very soon, more on that coming up.

As Mark Cuban bluntly put it, keep holding.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

AMC hasn’t squeezed yet primarily to two main reasons.

  1. We need more volume to drive the stock price action up
  2. Shorts need to close their positions

Volume really just comes to more and more retail investors as well as institutions getting in on AMC stock.

Regarding shorts covering, retail investors need to squeeze them out of their positions by holding their positions and helping increase AMC’s short borrow fee. You can keep tabs on AMC’s short borrow fee as it changes every day via. Ortex, or Fintel.

AMC short borrow fee

As of 9/17 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 0.90%.

Read: When do shorts have to cover their position? (AMC)

Aside from this, Wanda Group had caused a little bit of disruption for retail investors by profiting on the first sight of gains.

This turmoil was only short-term but is a reason why we’ve seen some selloff in the market a few weeks ago.

However, Adam Aron has recently brought awareness in an interview with Trey’s Trades that this selloff from Wanda is simply policy from China. Retail investors should not be concerned.

Is AMC Ever Going To Squeeze?

All the numbers point towards the right direction for a massive short squeeze. Shorts and hedge funds continue to lose money every day. The interest is growing at an alarming rate and AMC’s current utilization is around 90%.

The lives of these retail investors are about to completely change. Say goodbye to your old world.

What Will An AMC Short Squeeze Look Like?

what will an AMC short squeeze look like?
AMC Short Squeeze

AMC Entertainment stock is up more than 2000% year-to-date, but it hasn’t squeezed despite what mainstream media is telling you. Momentum and an upwards recovery is why AMC stock is surging again.

So, what will a short squeeze look like?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to discuss what an AMC short squeeze will look like for those of you who are still new in this trade.

Lets get started!

We finally broke AMC’s level of support in the $30 range and start a new chapter towards breaking $50. The stock just recently tested $48 before getting pushed back down by short sellers shorting the stock.

And although shorts are merely suppressing AMC stock from running its course, they are only slowing down the inevitable.

This minor move up to the $40 range combined with propaganda of a short squeeze is meant to divert new retail investors from getting in on this trade. Hedge funds are desperate as they consequently suffer billions of dollars in losses from the ape community alone.

But don’t let them scare you away from your money. AMC has not squeezed as short sellers have not covered their short positions.

There Are More Than 105 Million Shares On Loan

Ladies and gentlemen, if shorts covered their positions and AMC just went through a short squeeze, the number of shares on loan would have dropped significantly.

But they haven’t changed. Shares on loan are the number of shares that have yet to be returned to the lender by short sellers. If this number is not going down, it means short sellers have not covered their positions yet.

And as we know, you cannot have a short squeeze if short sellers do not cover their positions.

We would have also seen AMC’s short interest ultimately get obliterated to 1%-2%. It’s currently deemed ‘extremely high’ at 18%. Short interest is the percentage of short shares in a stock’s outstanding float.

AMC Entertainment keeps getting shorted no matter what the mainstream financial media platforms relay to the public. If you want real news and data subscribe to the blog. No propaganda here.

A Lid Full of Pressure Is About To Pop Open

Short sellers are about to go down in history for having the biggest losses to ever be recording in finance archives.

Hedge funds continue to gamble a trade they have been losing for 8 months now. That’s 8 months of suppressing a stock’s share price through the unethical practices of naked shorting and dark pool trading.

When the lid pops open here’s what you can expect.

Intraday Gains Will Be Astronomical

The short squeeze ‘claims’ from the mainstream media were that of only 20% gains. As this lid pops open, we can expect gains to run between 100%+ during intraday trading.

This is how you will know the short squeeze has commenced. We would need to keep an eye out on the short interest and shares on loan. This is basically our ‘fuel’.

We will be able to predict how much room for growth is available as these numbers go down. For example, if AMC reaches $1,000 per share but the short interest and shares on loan are still relatively high, then we know that AMC has not peaked yet.

The ape community would need to continue to hold to see numbers beyond that amount.

Differentiating Gamma Squeeze VS Short Squeeze

The 20% gains we experienced could be seen as a gamma squeeze. While this could have been a combination of momentum caused by FOMO, it could have also been micro short sellers closing their positions.

However, these micro positions didn’t even affect the short interest or shares on loan. This goes to show just how massive AMC’s share price will surge once big short sellers begin to close their positions.

It’s when these big players start covering that we’ll begin to experience the beginning of a short squeeze.

How Long Will A Short Squeeze Last?

As we begin to see massive intraday gains, the short interest data should let us know how much more ‘squeeze’ we have left. This means that we won’t know just how many days or weeks this squeeze may last for until we have an understanding of how many shorts have indeed closed their positions.

And although we won’t know exactly 100%, the short interest data can be a great guide to let us know how much juice is available on this trade.

This information will be relayed to the community as this trade continues to unfold. For now, we HODL until it’s payday.

We fortunately have a beautiful thing going. Short sellers on the other hand have had a bad day every day for the past 8 months. Now that SUCKS.

That Other World Is Waiting For You

Franknez.com

That vision you keep seeing for you and your family is patiently waiting on you just as much as you’re waiting for it to come to fruition.

We are in a very unique position here. The data is out there and you have all the information you need to make this thing a reality for you.

Trey said in a recent video that only you are in charge of your financial situation. This play is meant for everyone to make money. And he’s absolutely right. We cannot tie the community down.

But one thing is certain on my part and that’s that I am not selling until shorts have covered their positions. That’s my promise to you.

AMC Is Trending In The Right Direction

AMC is trending in the right direction
#AMCTOTHEMOON

AMC Entertainment stock is up more than 2000% year-to-date and no short seller can take that away. Not Gasparino, not Richfield.

AMC stock is adjusting itself for higher highs and higher lows again. Should you be excited? I sure am.

franknez.com

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

Lets get started!

AMC has become our world. It has become such an important part of all our lives. We’ve stuck together through every high and low, no matter what challenges we have faced as a community.

There’s a thick skin in the game now, be proud of it. And if you are a new ape, you now know we really meant it when we said we are not leaving.

Despite the number of opposing forces, AMC is trending in the right direction.

Breaking $48 Level of Resistance

Why is this so important? What happens then?

There’s a lot of facts, data, and logic as to why I’m so optimistic about AMC. And I think a lot of you will agree on what I have to present today.

But before I do, I want to give a massive thanks to the 100+ FrankNez supporters on Patreon. Running a blog at this scale is quite costly and your support means more than you will ever know. I will leave that link at the bottom of the article.

Now, AMC tested $48 four times now and it moved past the $50 mark. We’re now seeing AMC retest this area a fifth time.

The last time we broke $50 per share the stock trailblazed up to $72 per share. We are currently in unknown territory which means retail investors set the play.

AMC Is A High Demand Stock

AMC is a high demand stock no matter which way you look at it. The stock is in high demand from both retail investors and short sellers. Retail buys the stock and shorts equally demand to borrow it.

This momentum play is what’s keeping AMC trending in the right direction. The stock is so popular now that almost anyone who finds out what we’re fighting for will simply join just to fight.

This is great news for you and I because it means the share price will continue to surge and set higher resistance levels as the community keeps expanding.

And as long as shorts don’t cover, apes will continue to raise the bar, setting higher highs and higher lows.

This Trend Is About To Get Bigger

When AMC reached $72 per share all it did was make a statement. It introduced the ape community to the world and gave everyone who heard of us a fighting chance.

It was generous enough to let more people on board when it hit $30 per share. But I don’t think the next time it reaches a low it will be within this range. If it trades like Tesla did, AMC’s next floor could potentially be in the $70-$100 per share (next time around) as it continues to surge.

Will people keep buying? Without a doubt. Think about the institutions who are buying stock worth more than this amount right now. Whales will always buy if they see a rising trend here.

AMC has this rising trend right now. It was up more than 3000% back in June and fell back to 1500%. Well, it’s up more than 2000% now after reaching a higher floor.

Ladies and gentlemen, keep holding this stock. Even if you got in at $70 per share, there’s absolutely no way you cannot make money during this historic event! With that being said, there’s no doubt in my mind every ape in the community will be profitable this month of September.

But don’t be a Wanda and sell to break even. Selling at $70 will only bring the price back down. The stock needs to be comfortable testing higher levels of support.

And as Roensch Capital has said, the higher we can set AMC up fundamentally before the short squeeze, the better.

My advice to you as a friend (not financial advice), is that as you begin to be profitable (on paper), keep letting it ride up. You will thank me later.

AMC Stock Prediction (September)

After seeing AMC trade for 9 months now, I feel confident saying it’s going to be a really happy month for apes. I saw us start small with no voice to now owning more than 80% of the float, saving the movie theater industry, and sparking a movement against corruption.

We are now a community to be reckoned with.

Last month I mentioned August was going to be the last chance apes had to buy AMC stock at $30 per share because I noticed the stock had created a new floor. And I was right!

I was able to stock up at this level share price before it breaking resistance and moving past $40 levels.

If you plan on adding to your position, buy the stock now. AMC stock is about to move past $50 per share this month and if you missed adding at $30 per share, you’ll wish you had added at $40 too.

I’m By Your Side No Matter What

Franknez.com

We’ve been in touch on Facebook, Discord, Twitter, Instagram, via email, you name it! You know who you are. Maybe I’ve said it to only a few and maybe not enough but I’m by your side no matter what.

I wish I could mention all you great apes sharing the content. You are the ones changing other people’s lives. If it weren’t for you, some apes wouldn’t even have this amazing once in a lifetime opportunity that we all have!

So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Massive Disruption: Prepare For The MOASS

Massive Disruption: Prepare For The MOASS
MOASS Incoming

MOASS incoming. The feds are printing trillions of dollars, hedge funds have lost billions of dollars due to retail. People also seem to be worried about a possible recession.

And, the feds are now requiring major banks to hold roughly $1 trillion in high quality capital – enough to survive a severe recession and still be able to lend to households and businesses.

They crazy thing is only a few out of the 34 major banks hold more than $1 trillion in assets. How will this affect investors, and the common people?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today’s topic is rather grand. How prepared are you for a MOASS?

Lets get started!

There’s a lot going on here. I’m going to break major key points and give my overall thoughts and opinions on how everything ties together.

With so much money being lent out this means it’s all eventually going to have to be paid back sooner or later. Lets dive into the distribution of all this leverage and debt first with repos and how they work.

The Feds & Repos

The feds have been printing out a large sum of money to lend to banks, who also lend to financial institutions such as hedge funds. Well the feds have also been collecting billions in reverse repos from money going back into the repo market.

A repo market is essentially where a transaction between treasure securities and cash meet. In other words, they are short-term collateralized loans.

Money is continuously being printed and transacted back and forth through both repos and reverse repos. This loop is the reason why our dollar is becoming worthless every day.

Who Uses Repos?

Financial institutions such as banks and hedge funds both have access to this unlimited supply of leverage, or cash from the feds.

Repos are used as leverage to trade securities with the intention of profiting from the leveraged cash, and eventually paying the loan back.

While repos are primarily supposed to be used as a short term ‘collateral loan’, institutions take advantage of the loan to further leverage other positions in the market.

Hedge funds can use repo to increase their leverage, which magnifies both their potential gains and their potential losses. We know hedge funds have lost billions of dollars from shorting AMC and GME stock this year alone.

What Can Be Done About Excessive Repos?

The feds might be looking at ways to facilitate the amount to be borrowed by establishing a particular ceiling. However, I personally don’t think this is enough.

Some fundamental questions are yet to be resolved, including the rate at which firms (besides banks and primary dealers) would be eligible to participate.

How Much Leverage Do Hedge Funds Have From Repos?

In the figure below, we can see that 29% of asset managers (hedge funds) have direct access to repos from the feds. However, dealer who hold 41% and banks who hold another 20% can easily lend money to hedge funds with interest.

how much leverage do hedge funds have from repos

The problem here is that hedge funds are overleveraged and have too much power as a single entity. Hedge funds have been the root to economic downturns such as the Great Recession of 2008 and the Stock Market Crash of 1929.

In fact, it’s because of the Stock Market Crash of 1929 that the SEC (Securities Exchange Commission) was born. It was meant to protect retail investors from fraud and illicit activity from hedge funds.

Unfortunately, the SEC has only proved to be a lobbied pawn from hedge funds; slapping them with fines that have no effect or real consequence to the injustice in the markets.

Hedge Funds Face Major Scrutiny

Market manipulation has been exposed by a growing community of retail investors originating from the sub Reddit known as r/wallstreetbets.

The community has since grown outside Reddit and established a variety of subcommunities on Discord, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook Groups, and other forums across the internet.

This community of retail investors known as ‘apes’ have sparked a movement worldwide to expose the corrupt tactics hedge funds use to short stock in the market and bankrupt companies.

Some of which include naked shorting and dark pool trading, which CNBC’s Melissa Lee publicly speaks out on.

The attention is now on hedge funds. Both Republicans and Democrats agree strict laws should be imposed on Citadel Securities after the Archegos incident earlier this year.

And it looks like their lifeline is about to be cut off.

Large Banks To Hold $1 Trillion In Capital

Effective October 1st, thirty-four of the largest banks will be required to hold roughly $1 trillion in high-quality capital.

The banks are:

  1. Ally Financial Inc.
  2. American Express Corporation
  3. Bank of America
  4. The Bank of New York
  5. Barclays
  6. BMO Financial Group
  7. BNP Paribas USA
  8. Capital One
  9. CitiGroup
  10. Citizens Financial Group
  11. Credit Suisse
  12. DB USA Corporations
  13. Discover
  14. DWS USA Corporations
  15. Fifth Third Bancorp
  16. Goldman Sachs
  17. HSBC
  18. Huntington Bancshares
  19. JP Morgan Chase & Co
  20. KeyCorp
  21. M&T Bank
  22. Morgan Stanley
  23. MUFG Americas
  24. Northern Trust Corporation
  25. The PNC Financial Services
  26. RBC US Group Holdings
  27. Regions Financial Corporation
  28. Santander Holdings
  29. State Street Corporation
  30. TD Group US Holdings
  31. Truist Financial Corporation
  32. UBS Americas
  33. U.S Bancorp
  34. Wells Fargo & Company

Out of these 34 companies, only JP Morgan, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and CitiGroup hold more than $1 trillion in assets.

In this list of the top 15 banks by assets, you can see just how far from $1 trillion a lot of these banks are. And this is just half of them from the feds list!

top 15 largest banks by assets
Top 15 largest banks by assets

With so many banks far off from reaching $1 trillion in assets, they’ll have to find the collateral from other means.

In my personal opinion, liquidation in the markets.

What Causes A Stock Market Crash?

A stock market crash is caused by those who bought stock on margin, lost value in their investments, and owe money to the entities that granted them those loans, according to Britannica.

A stock market crash is usually the cause of ‘panic selling’ or heavy liquidation in the stock market. With so many institutions owing other institutions money back, we’re going to see massive liquidation occur during the biggest margin call in history.

Hedge funds and short sellers now have higher margin requirements, and it looks like the feds just applied their own requirements to the biggest banks in the world.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is going to be the biggest opportunity of your life if you’re holding shorted stock, especially if they have a negative beta. Heavily shorted stocks with negative beta include both AMC and GME stock.

How Does A Stock Market Crash Affect The Average Person?

Unfortunately, the average person could lose their pension during a stock market crash and also find it difficult to obtain loans and mortgages. And if you own stock, your portfolio will suffer significant losses.

What Happens To AMC And GME If The Stock Market Crashes?

Stocks with negative beta tend to act the complete opposite during a stock market crash. AMC and GME holders will experience the MOASS as short sellers and institutions begin to cover their overleveraged positions.

But if you hold other common stock, keep in mind its value will drop. If you’re long, this could be seen as a great buying opportunity to add to your stock portfolio.

Other heavily shorted stocks with high short interest should also see a major increase in share price as hedge funds begin to pay their dues.

If the stock market crashes, it will be one of the biggest blessings for both AMC and GME shareholders as institutions will have to pay back every share they borrowed to short both these stocks.

Community, our time is coming. Banks have until October 1st to come up with the capital to fund their requirements. Expect liquidations left and right. Both the stock and crypto markets will be tanking.

And although AMC and GME are currently making upward moves, don’t be surprised if they fall back down one last time before shorts are inevitably squeezed from their short positions.

The MOASS we’ve all been waiting for is on the horizon. Get excited.

Is AMC Stock A Buy Or Is It Too Late?

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?
Is it too late to buy AMC Entertainment stock?

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

If you’ve been following the stock market news you’ve probably heard of all the hype surrounding AMC stock and GME (GameStop).

It wasn’t long before traders flocked over to AMC after the massive gains GameStop yielded due to the high percentage of shorting within the stocks.

Shorting a stock is the process by which sellers essentially bet on the stock price to drop. They borrow stocks at higher cost and sell the stock low, profiting the difference.

Well, investors over at r/wallstreetbets found that by purchasing stocks at low price in heavy volumes it would drive a short squeeze. A short squeeze occurs when a stock jumps sharply higher, forcing short sellers to buy higher, causing them to lose money. Lots of it.

franknez.com
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!

Will we see a squeeze with AMC?

AMC Entertainment short Squeeze

There are numerous news that lead traders and investors alike to predict an upcoming short squeeze like we saw with GME (Gamestop).

  • CEO of AMC announces AMC is no longer going bankrupt (via. Los Angeles Times)
  • Vanguard, Wells Fargo, BMO Harris, BlackRock, Fidelity and many more institutions are buying AMC stock while it’s low (via. CNN Business)
  • AMC is currently the most shorted stock (via. MarketWatch) Unfortunately MarketWatch has hidden AMC from their list. Retail investors suspect foul play.
  • AMC is also currently one of the most held stocks surpassing Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA) (via. Nasdaq)
  • More publicity and awareness has average people investing in AMC which is driving volume for a potential squeeze

Big institutions keep buying AMC stock

We’re seeing huge institutions are investing in AMC stock while it’s affordable. Because it’s affordable we’re also seeing average people invest in this stock.

As long as the stock is being held, though lows and through highs, a squeeze like we saw with GME (GameStop) is certainly possible.

AMC stock closed at $47.30 on September 14th. The stock has begun to trend upwards again. The stocks patterns indicate bullish movement. However, shorts continue to short ladder the stock causing a little bit of consolidation. AMC wants to keep climbing.

Short-laddering occurs when short investors buy back their shares at a low price, driving down (or leveling the stock) gains. These are the attacks we’ve been seeing whenever AMC begins to see gains, all year.

As long as AMC shareholders continue to hold and buy the dip, short investors are at a disadvantage.

Great news for AMC Entertainment

Other news that can further drive the share price of AMC stock is the announcement that most AMC theaters have now begun to open up.

BREAKING: AMC’s short borrow fee as of 9/14 is 0.90%, via. Fintel.

The fee is going up although it had recently come down.

What is a short borrow fee?

AMC short borrow fee
Franknez.com

The short borrow fee is the interest shorts pay for borrowing shares of AMC stock.

This means shorts are losing money every day by not closing their positions. If we want to squeeze shorts from their positions we’ll need to see this short borrow fee gradually increase.

Why the short borrow fee rate matters

It costs shorts interest to hold while it costs the retail investor absolutely nothing to hold.

Shorts are losing money every day they hold because of this interest fee for borrowing the stock.

For some reason shorts still think AMC Entertainment can go bankrupt, although they have enough money to continue doing business.. I know, I don’t understand this either.

As hedge funds like Melvin Capital lose money, the short borrow fee will go up to make up for some loses. As the interest goes up, shorts will naturally cover. If they don’t, they will continue to pay interest for borrowing.

How high can AMC stock go up to?

AMC to the moon

Because we’ve seen a lot of suppression in the market due to short-ladder attacks, many traders are anticipating AMC stock can get as high if not higher than GME (GameStop).

This is actually quite logical given that we’re seeing more and more people and institutions alike purchase AMC stock and hold their positions.

There’s a notion that all these suppressed gains will result in a massive short squeeze during the Summer. Again, this is all speculation but all signs are pointing towards big gains.

So, is it too late to purchase AMC stock?

The price after a short squeeze eventually fall back down and level out, but this will take time. With AMC stock treading below $100, now could be the perfect time to buy. Just don’t wait too long because we hear it’s going to the moon.

Hedge funds continue to short AMC and the volume is increasing; it’s the perfect storm for a short squeeze.

Read: What The Fool isn’t telling you about AMC could hurt you

Things to expect in the market with AMC

  • Volatility followed with an upward trend in price action
  • Short-ladder attacks
  • Headlines advising you to trade in something else
  • Hedge funds to lose a lot of money
  • More retail investors buying this stock right now
  • A series of gamma squeezes
  • And, a highly potential short squeeze that can happen at any time

How many AMC shares should I buy?

If you’re planning on taking a position in AMC Entertainment set a budget for investing. Since the market is volatile at the moment, purchase shares incrementally.

The best time to buy a stock is when the share price has dipped. This will allow your investment to see gains when the stock price rises again.

Ladies and gentlemen, the last thing you want to do is to invest more than you can handle to lose. This advisory must be made.

If you’re holding AMC stock leave a comment below and let me know what a short squeeze would mean for you. Retail investors can feel it, the tendies are coming.


Where can I invest in AMC? What’s a good platform?

If you have not opened a brokerage account to begin investing, read how to invest in the stock market (step by step). In this post you will see a number of linked platforms that you can check out!

I personally use Vanguard. Vanguard has proven to be useful and it has never failed me before. Here, I hold long-terms stocks as well as a position in AMC.

Important Advisory

It is important to note that I am not a licensed financial advisor. Like many traders and self taught investors, all speculation is based on educated estimations based on highly reliable analysis, patterns, and documented news charts.

On another note: It would be wise to not invest more than you can afford to lose. In other words, invest money you would be okay with losing for simpler terms.

More info on AMC from Trey’s Trades (Analyst)

Trey is an analyst in the stock marketing and trading world. His videos are super fun to watch as they are very informative and downright transparent. Furthermore, Trey’s personality just makes the videos all that much better.

Be sure to follow Trey as he engages his audience live when the market opens for real-life discussions.

Trey’s Trades – AMC Huge Institutional Buyers!

It’s important to keep yourself updated with the latest AMC news so you can invest with confidence.

This is not Trey’s Trades most recent video but it’s a very important one. Be sure to keep up with AMC analytics so that you’re aware of the play.

Another great Analyst covering AMC right now is Roensch Capital. They’re a little more analytical, but a trustworthy source nonetheless.


Everything is falling into place for AMC stock

Other YouTubers covering AMC in depth include Matt Kohrs, Max Maher, and Andrew Mo Money.

What’s cool about these YouTubers is that they all go on each others channels from time to time and do collaborations regarding DD. Trey and Roensch Capital are by far my favorite channels covering AMC.

I personally started following Trey’s Trades when he had about 10,000 subscribers. He’s nearing 300,000 now, and well deserved by the way.

But, if you want daily technical analysis on AMC, Roensch Capital is the channel for you.

Ignore the bogus headlines from The Motley Fool and other sources

AMC and r/wallstreetbets have been given lots of negative press from the likes of The Motley Fool and other sources; shaming the purchase of the stock.

The fool vs AMC

Fortunately we’ve been backed up by the real Wolf of Wall Street as well as Mark Cuban, Chance The Rapper, and other big names.

Influential outlets with powerful hedge fund partners (institutions who short the stock) have been attacking traders and investors by providing false information wherever they can.

What we’re seeing right now is that the big guys are losing money due to the price of shorted stocks going up. They will say and do whatever they can to divert the public from trading this stock.

My personal suggestion to you is to not let these sources intimidate you. Do your research to see how the stock price has been manipulated through bogus headlines and short-ladder attacks.

Not to mention, the complete halt of trading AMC stock by Robinhood. That’ll be another post for you.

Now, this particular piece you’re about to read is from one of my moderators on the Discord, AMC with FrankNez. I’ll leave the link to the group at the end of the article. Enjoy!


Written by: Erin Scott 

APES! Huge news on the horizon for AMC. 

If you’ve been in Frank’s AMC discord, you likely have seen me in there posting memes, or cracking wise, as I am the resident memelord and comedic relief in the server. 

I have been doing some of my own DD, as you should too! Never take anyone’s word for it. Look for yourself apes, all the information is out there if you look hard enough, and boy howdy let me tell you.

I’ve found a few tasty breadcrumbs that could potentially be a trail leading to some major catalysts for an AMC runup. Now bear in mind, folks. I am not a financial advisor, and this is not financial advice. I am just a smoothbrained crayon eating ape investor who is hyped as all get-out and have a very strong bullish sentiment about the next few days in AMC.

As Frank says, let’s get started! 

Adam Aron announces AMC theaters will be launching its first ever $25+ million NATIONAL ad campaign with starlet Nicole Kidman! Apes, this is huge! Adam is joining us to remind people that the theater experience is a time honored tradition in our country, that won’t be driven away by greedy hedge funds! 

Aron has also been talking with Melissa Lee about never-been-done plans for AMC! Apes, could this be the AMC/GME team up that’s been speculated since AA confirmed he has reached out to GME’s Ryan Cohen??

As of the time of this writing, Melissa Lee hasn’t aired with the story yet, but I am sure Frank will update this article accordingly. Fam, imagine our favorite stocks joining with our community and taking the fight BACK to the shorts who would seek to rob us of our favorite entertainment!?

Furthermore, when doing a little digging, I came across this juicy choice chicken nugget dipped in spicy affirmation sauce! Confirmation of a SEC Investigation on shorted stocks baby! Right in section 5 of GME’s 10Q earning report filed with the SEC itself written in plain English on GameStop’s investor website. 

Click the link to view.

And lastly, we have been bullish for days apes! We have a solid 45° uptrend, and a signal like this chums the waters for those big institutional investors! Something huge is coming our way apes, strap in and hang on, because I have a feeling we are about to take a ride to the next level! 

I will keep this short and sweet but if you enjoyed this article, stop by in Frank’s discord and say hello! I’d love to hear from my fellow apes! STONKY KONG, OUT!

NSCC-005 Raises Margin Requirements (9/3)

The DTCC just released a filing approving the NSCC’s proposal to increase the minimum required fund deposit (margin requirements) for short sellers.

Short sellers were required to keep a minimum balance of $10,000 in their margin accounts until now. As of September 3rd, 2021, these accounts are require to keep a whopping $250,000 by law.

NSCC-2021-010
NSCC 2021 010 Effective on September 3rd

“On the morning of the effective date, members with a fund deposit below $250,000 will incur a deficit, that will require funding by 10AM EST”.

How Does This Affect AMC?

This doesn’t just affect AMC, this affects the entire market. Plays that are currently heavily shorted such as GME, SPRT, and BBIG for example, will all be affected.

Short sellers are getting a 2500% margin increase as of September 3rd, 2021. Community, this is massive. If short sellers cannot meet this requirement then their positions will be liquidated.

Your favorite stocks are about to start moving up through a series of gamma squeezes. These gamma squeezes could cause hedge funds to close out their positions resulting in multiple short squeezes from multiple heavily shorted stocks.

These series of gamma squeezes must not be confused with a short squeeze for any particular stock. These margin requirements will first eliminate the smaller short sellers.

Holding will be crucial if we are to squeeze the bigger short sellers from their positions. Massive things are right around the corner!

AMC Theatres On Demand

Whip Media just announced that AMC would be using their services for AMC Theatres On Demand.

AMC Theatres On Demand would offer more than 5,000 movies from every major studio and indie film distributors, available for purchase or rent.

“We’re thrilled to have partnered with AMC to power AMC Theatres on Demand for their millions of customers and provide an infrastructure that is efficient and scalable”, said Carol Hanley, president of Whip Media.

Keyword ‘Scalable’

Amazing news for AMC Entertainment indeed. This type of bullish news should push AMC stock further up since fundamentalists are still looking at AMC fundamentals.

The ape community understands that fundamentals are out the window when it comes to a short squeeze play. However, every step along the way counts.

Any business that goes online now goes from limitations to unlimited possibilities. While AMC Entertainment earns money the traditional way, through ticket sales and concession stands, they will now have the ability to earn revenue at scale through their online services.

AMC going online can easily raise its value to a 3-figure stock alone. It no longer depends on old traditional business methods. AMC has now configured a hybrid business model that will generate revenue even while movie theaters are closed after business hours.

This is certainly exciting news.

AMC Breaks Through $40

What an amazing day for the ape and retail community. AMC finally broke the $30 level of resistance and flew past $40.

AMC stock volume traded at a whopping 221 million! The average volume is approximately 169 million. Today’s momentum pushed through short sellers like a mob trampling shoppers at a black Friday sale.

AMC closed today (8.24) in the mid $40s. My August prediction came true, $30 share price levels are now a thing of the past.

August was the time to bulk up before momentum started taking over again. I predicted that these coming days would consist of AMC having an open runway of which we saw happen today (8.24).

Short Sellers Lose $800 Million

According to Ortex, short sellers amounted a whopping $800 million loss as AMC stock spiked up more than 20%. Short sellers betting against the stock can expect this pattern to occur in the coming days to weeks as AMC surges.

The opportunity to close positions in the $30 range are long gone. This is what happens when greed overpowers reasoning.

This last week in August could be pivotal. If shorts do not close their positions now, they will continue to suffer immense losses.

The BIGGEST Catalyst To A Short Squeeze

You know what the biggest catalyst to an AMC short squeeze is? It’s you. That’s right. You reading this.

The ape community is the biggest catalyst to this short squeeze trade. As long as retail investors continue to hold the stock, a short squeeze is inevitable.

Now, while we cannot control what whales (institutions) do, we can certainly control what we do. And that’s all that really matters during this play. Especially given the fact that retail investors own more than 80% of the free float.

Today we saw sells of up to $2.2M, and it barely affected the share price. This shows you just how strong we are as a community.


Citadel Pulls Money Out From Melvin Capital

This weekend (8.22) we learned that Citadel pulled out an incredible $500 million from the hedge fund Melvin Capital. Citadel had an initial investment of $2 billion dollars in Melvin Capital according to sources.

That’s 1/4 of their investment in the hedge fund. Citadel and partners plan to withdraw the money at the end of the third quarter. They made the investment in late January during the time Melvin Capital’s short positions were under attack by the heroes who saved both AMC Entertainment and GameStop.

The ape community saved two major companies in American history and are on a mission to squeeze shorts from their positions. Will Melvin Capital end up closing their doors? It’s certainly possible, especially if the hedge fund continues to lose money.

What Does This Mean?

We’re beginning to see that hedge funds short on AMC and GME stock are now resulting to desperate measures. They are scrapping money from their own pockets now.

See, retail investors liquidate their positions in other stocks to buy more AMC, to buy more GME stock. Ultimately to make more money right?

Hedge funds on the other hand are liquidating their stocks, and pulling their investments out from other institutions because they’re running out of money. They’re required to keep money above margin requirements.

Charles Schwab, a whale invested in both AMC and GME stock, has raised margin requirements for short sellers driving these stocks down. Failing to do so will result in intraday margin calls.

Melvin Capital Enters Deeper Waters

Unfortunately for Melvin Capital, Citadel just left another hole in their sinking ship by pulling out a quarter billion dollars from the hedge fund. Melvin is already down about 43% this year with about $11 billion in assets remaining.

The retail community continues to buy and hold both AMC and GME stock. AMC stock is setup for another technical break above $40 which will only cause short sellers to trend negative on paper.

Hedge funds cannot afford to lose their clients investments this long. It’s been 8 months of nonstop losses for short sellers all year. Clients will be pulling money out.

It seems retail investors will not only be forcing short sellers to close their positions, but will also take down the hedge funds who planned to bankrupt America’s favorite companies.
