Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

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

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

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

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

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

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides retail investors market news with integrity. Today we’re discussing AMC’s short interest data to determine whether it will squeeze in 2022.

Let’s dive right into it!

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

Mainstream media wants retail to lose

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

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

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

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

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

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

AMC Short Interest Data (2022)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Who is AMC stock for?

Popcorn

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

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

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

Reasons why AMC wont squeeze in 2022..

I’ve always been transparent with the community.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The community has always been a beacon for change.

Apes will need to voice market concerns to elevate awareness.

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

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

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

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

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

The fight for a fair market continues in 2022.

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

It’s about freedom.

Shareholders Are Preparing for An AMC Short Squeeze

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AMC short interest today

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

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

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

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

This is big news.

Let’s discuss it more below.

AMC Short Interest Today

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AMC Short borrow fee rate

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But the AMC community is still standing strong.

Is an AMC short squeeze happening soon?

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

We could begin to see bigger price action very soon.

AMC CEO Says a DRS Will Prevent Shorting

DRS AMC shares
Stock Market News: AMC CEO says Registering AMC Shares prevents shorting.

AMC CEO Adam Aron said during Q3 announcements that by using a DRS, or Direct Registration System, investors could prevent the company stock from being shorted.

“If you direct register your shares, they cannot be shorted”, said the CEO.

Now investors who were once skeptical on DRS suggest this could be the only way to trigger a massive short squeeze event.

Institutions have been able to suppress AMC’s share price through overleveraged shorting in the market.

And unfortunately for retail investors, the real demand for the stock has been hidden for far too long.

Is DRS the strategy to beating Wall Street again?

Let’s discuss it.

Join the newsletter for daily stock and crypto market updates.

What is a DRS?

should you DRS AMC shares?
Should you DRS AMC shares? AMC DRS Reddit.

The Direct Registration System, or DRS, is a system for book-entry ownership.

DRS offers investors and shareholders an alternative from receiving a physical certificate, by allowing the shares to be recorded in the books electronically.

The way AMC shareholders can transfer their shares to a DRS is by contacting their brokers and requesting the transfer directly.

Shares registered through DRS cannot be lent to short-sellers by brokerage firms.

DRS might also be able to expose the fraud that occurs behind the doors of market makers and other financial institutions.

Naked shorting has been a real problem in the finance sector and unfortunately the SEC has not tackled it head on.

It’s very possible DRS kills two birds with one stone.

But I’d love to hear your thoughts on the segment.

Should AMC shareholders DRS their shares?

And do you think it will make a difference?

Shareholders and The Public Are AMC’s Only Hope

AMC Entertainment CEO Adam Aron: Stock Market News + more.

Short and distort campaigns are flooding Twitter after AMC Entertainment beat Q3 earnings.

AMC’s share price tumbled despite the company having beat earnings expectations for Q3 of 2022.

Variety says AMC’s partnership with Zoom is bizarre and Hollywood Reporter is focused on AMC’s $227 million loss ($0.22 loss per share) despite revenue for Q3 being up $968.4 million.

Zacks Consensus Estimate predicted a loss per share of 25 cents, so AMC performed better than expected.

What we’re seeing is that the public alongside AMC shareholders are the only hope for the company.

Mainstream media isn’t willing to give AMC the credit it deserves.

Below are highlights from AMC’s Q3 earnings call.

Join the newsletter for weekly market news and updates on your favorite stock tickers.

AMC Q3 Earnings Highlights

AMC Q3 Earnings
AMC Q3 Earnings Beat – Stock Market News + more.

Here’s a quick look into AMC’s Q3 earnings call.

  • 53 Million guests attended AMC Theatres in Q3, a 33% increase from Q3 of 2021.
  • $1.5 billion in debt financing
  • AMC finished Q3 with just under $900 million in liquidity ($896m in cash).
  • AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE) helped the company raise $37 million in capital to pay down debt.
  • The movie theatre company says market conditions are out of their control when addressing falling share prices.
  • AMC had $500 million of improved and adjusted EBITDA, and an increase of $18.21 per patron.
  • A new AMC credit card is set to be released early next year and retail AMC popcorn will be hitting the shelves soon.
  • The company is striving for positive cash operations by Q4 of 2022.

AMC Entertainment had an overall successful Q3 for 2022.

On the list of the most anticipated movie theatres coming to AMC this year, is Black Adam, which has surpassed $300 million in earnings since its release three weeks ago.

Two other anticipated films coming to AMC theatres in Q4 include Black Panter: Wakanda Forever and Avatar 2.

AMC’s Market Cap is Still Below Its Debt Load

AMC stock Reddit
Wallstreetbets: AMC Stock Reddit.

AMC Entertainment’s current market cap is sitting at $2.88bn, the company has north of $5bn in debt.

The movie theatre chain company has done an incredible job at paying down its debt, although company shareholders and the public are what’s keeping AMC Entertainment afloat.

As long as there are moviegoers and investors feeding the company with liquidity, AMC Entertainment is far from gone like many short sellers would hope.

The public’s eye on the largest movie theatre chain company in the world has not faltered; for them, going to the movies is merely a means of reality going back to normal after the pandemic lockdowns.

And as we saw in Q3 earnings, AMC’s attendees have increased 33% from Q3 of last year, seating more than 53 million guests in Q3 alone.

Shareholders also play a massive role in the success of the century old movie theatre company.

The difference is shareholders are battling short and distort campaigns in a conflict of interest with mainstream media and Wall Street institutions who hope to profit from the possibility of bankruptcy.

And although AMC is no longer on the brink of going bankrupt, Wall Street seems to have a personal vendetta against retail investors who disrupted the flow of their short scheme.

AMC Downtrend: Will We See a Shift Soon?

AMC Downtrend: Will AMC shares go up
Stock Market News: Will AMC Shares go up?

AMC is on a downtrend and shares of AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE) also continue to tumble.

In this article I’m going to break down two short-term scenarios we may see for the movie theatre chain stock in the coming days.

Join the newsletter below for weekly updates on your favorite stock tickers.

Let’s get started.

Will AMC Keep Falling?

AMC Entertainment Stock News Today | Will AMC keep falling.
AMC Entertainment Stock News Today | Will AMC keep falling or will AMC shares go up?

AMC’s current downtrend shows us that there is still room for the movie theatre chain stock to fall.

However, the stock finished testing a support level turned resistance on Monday.

If AMC stock is able to break through the resistance level circled in the chart above of $5.40, then it’s likely we see the stock retest its next level at around $5.55 per share.

Breaking above that level and we see $5.70, then $6 again.

On the contrary, if AMC stock is unable to break through resistance at $5.40, then it’s very likely that we continue to see downtrend towards $5 per share or lower.

What’s it going to take for AMC to break through?

Heavy buying volume from retail.

And it’s possible AMC’s upcoming Q3 announcement for 2022 kickstarts this momentum.

The company is announcing Q3 earnings on Tuesday, November 8th.

Recent AMC Entertainment News

CEO Adam Aron announced on Monday AMC and Zoom are launching ZOOM ROOMS AT AMC, at theatres in 17 U.S. cities.

Read: AMC FTDs Spiked to $9.9 Million in October


Report: AMC FTDs Spiked to $9.9 Million in October

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

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

This is equivalent to 1,640,155 FTDs.

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s discuss it.

AMC Gets Hammered by Clearing Houses

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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