AMC Stock: CEO is Tired of Manipulation Talks

Market News Daily: AMC CEO fatigued by manipulation talks.

AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) CEO Adam Aron touches on billions of synthetic shares and market manipulation.

For years now, AMC shareholders have stuck to their convictions on a mother of all short squeezes (MOASS) due to the alarming amount of overleveraged shares out in the market that institutions still have to buy back.

AMC Entertainment stock has been shorted in the past by some of the biggest short sellers on Wall Street, though now they are playing both sides to hedge their bets.

Notorious short seller Citadel has a long history of market manipulation, Chairman Gary Gensler says more than 50% of trading goes through dark pools, and Patrick McConloguge, an ex-Citadel data scientist says the game is rigged and that rules are tailored to benefit hedge funds.

But AMC CEO Adam Aron says that is not the company’s problem, despite thousands of investors urging the company to take an activist role in lifting the suppression that keeps the stock price from rising.

Investors managed to raise AMC shares from $2 to $20, and from $5 to $72 per share — though halts and other forms of suppression limited how high the stock was allowed to go.

Shareholders have felt cheated ever since and have urged AMC’s CEO to take legal action against naked shorts like other CEOs are currently doing.

But AMC’s CEO has recently expressed a strong message towards the manipulation occurring in his company stock.

And quite frankly, the CEO expresses he’s tired of investors talking about it.

Let’s dive right into it.

AMC CEO on Billions of Synthetic Shares

AMC CEO Adam Aron on Synthetic Shares.
AMC CEO Adam Aron on Synthetic Shares.

In August 2022, just moments before the debut of AMC’s Preferred Equity, APE, Adam Aron released the following statement:

“Candidly, I’ve seen no evidence so-called fake or synthetic shares exist. But many of you disagree. This preferred equity dividend goes ONLY to company issued shares. So, it will have the impact of a “share count” or unique dividend many of you have sought.”

This alarmed many investors at the time with a few die-hard followers calling anyone who mentioned this news as ‘bot’, ‘shill’, or ‘fud’ — completely unnecessary of course but it paints the environment well.

Other Twitter influencers promised shareholders APE was the catalyst to an epic short squeeze but failed to explain the equity’s true purpose.

In other words, only a half-truth was being spread within the community which caused shareholders to hold even deeper losses.

A video surfaced on social media of Adam Aron speaking on market manipulation that has many investors somewhat divided — though it shouldn’t.

And I’ll explain why in a moment.

The CEO says, “guys, don’t believe everything you read on Twitter. Yes, it’s true that we have a lot of short sellers who have sold our shares short, but all that stuff that you read about market manipulation, and fail to delivers, and all this other stuff, there’s billions of synthetic shares out there — that’s not our problem.”

Adam Aron said on Twitter the company had reached out to the NYSE and FINRA to look into the high number of FTDs but failed to provide any sort of letter confirming the claims.

Shareholders are confused to say the least with what the CEO had to say during one of his events.

Is the CEO is experiencing fear, uncertainty, and doubt?

In another video, the CEO can be heard telling a shareholder, “You don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re just wrong. You’re just wrong across the board. There are no synthetic shares.”

Despite not being one of the most peppy AMC updates, it sure is something worth raising awareness about.

What the CEO says and what you have seen are going to reinforce your conviction or lack thereof.

However, there are always two sides to a coin.

In the full video, you can also hear the CEO state that essentially running the company fundamentally is more important than the manipulation happening in the company stock.

The clips are rubbing many investors the wrong way but shouldn’t be take completely out of context.

Still, investors feel the CEO should not discuss market injustices if he’s not willing to tackle them.

Why is This Important?

There are millions of investors out there who have witnessed the market manipulation single handedly for years and now they’re being told it’s not important — or rather it doesn’t exist, when real data, reports, and whistleblowers have stated otherwise.

Though the CEOs controversial statements might have investors divided, it shouldn’t.

In the end, a shareholder is a shareholder and everyone has a choice to make based on what’s happening in the market and with the company.

Some shareholders are indifferent, simply waiting to collect profits when shorts start closing their positions.

AMC’s short interest is still high at 23.60%.

The short interest was lower when AMC shares ran up to its all-time high of $72 per share in 2021.

Time will tell where AMC’s share price goes from here on out.

What do you make of AMC’s CEO’s thoughts on the manipulation?

Was this the proper way to address shareholders and the community who have been fighting for change in the financial system?

Out of the market injustices that have occurred ever since the ‘meme stock’ frenzy, ‘We The Investors’ has established a legitimate voice for the retail community and has been able to speak to Chairman Gary Gensler on concerns and issues investors are currently facing.

We’ve also been able to raise enough awareness to bring certain issues to light by bigger media outlets, ensuring your voice is heard.

AMC Failure-to-Delivers Are Skyrocketing Through the Roof

Market News: AMC Failure-to-delivers rise in February.
Market News: AMC Failure-to-delivers rise in February.

AMC failure-to-delivers (FTDs) have been begun to rise again.

FTDs topped 6.8 million in February (non-cumulative), amounting to more than $36 million in failed to close orders.

The data is still being reported which means there’s a possibility we may see higher FTDs once February’s entire month has been processed.

AMC failure to deliver
AMC FTDs – Stocksera.

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-delivers can occur in options trading or when selling short naked, per Investopedia.

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

Investors say there’s a major conflict of interest when Citadel Clearing LLC processes retail orders worldwide.

Are AMC’s FTDs a result of naked shorting?

Majority of the retail community seems to think so.

Companies are even beginning to take legal action against the predatorial short selling strategy.

GNS CEO Shares Petition to End Naked Shorting

Recently, Genius Group ($GNS) CEO Roger Hamilton shared a petition to end naked shorting in the market.

The Naked Shorts War activist urged the retail community to sign it in efforts to raise awareness of manipulative tactics that occur in the market every day.

“They’re predators. They’re doing something illegal, and we want it to stop”, says GNS CEO Roger Hamilton.

The Board of Directors of Genius Group Limited, a leading entrepreneur edtech and education group, approved at a meeting of the Board held on Wednesday 18th January 2023, an action plan to address illegal short selling of its stock.

AMC shareholders have criticized AMC CEO Adam Aron for not addressing the manipulation in AMC Entertainment stock.

This action plan includes creating a Board-led ‘Illegal Trading Task Force’ to actively pursue all possible actions together with the regulators in their discovery and prosecution of persons engaging in market manipulation involving the ordinary shares of Genius Group.

Waging war against naked shorts is something that won’t succeed so easily, but raising awareness is a sure way to start.

Are All AMC FTDs Caused by Naked Shorts?

SEC Chairman Gary Gensler has said in the past that FTDs aren’t always the result of naked shares — but that’s as much as he’s mentioned the term.

FTDs can also result in buyers not having the funds to cover costs during execution of a security, though for retail investors this is a very unlikely scenario.

The stock market has seen its fair share of manipulation throughout the decades.

Institutions can spoof the market with ‘naked shares’ to move the price without ever having to take accountability for any real asset.

They can also lend shares they don’t own as IOUs and never have to take accountability when it comes to delivering them but rather simply reporting them as failure-to-delivers.

So, there are certainly loopholes our regulators must take into account.

And as far as the retail community is concerned, our regulators know all too well what’s occurring in the market.

Putting pressure on these regulators could be the first steps towards creating real change in the near future.

Retail investors might just be the ones to make history this decade.

How Big Could an AMC Short Squeeze Potential Surge?

AMC Short Squeeze Potential
Stock Market News: Just how high can AMC short squeeze spike up to?

An AMC short squeeze potential has been a huge debate for retail investors and shareholders amongst the Reddit and social media communities.

Exactly how high an AMC short squeeze could possibly go up to has plagued AMC shareholders since the very first publication of the short interest data (archived data).

AMC Entertainment stock was trading around $14 when I began to share the short interest data after shooting up to $22 per share during its first big push from $2.50.

The stock fell back down to $5 per share but the short interest told a story, which is why I continued to share it, because retail investors had a shot at something big here.

Four months after my publications, AMC reached its all-time high of $72 per share.

I knew investors that were up thousands of dollars, and others that were up hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Another community member posted his brand-new Polestar.

You can actually go and see their comments on my Instagram highlights under ‘Gains‘.

But what’s more interesting is that AMC never shot up to its potential, did it?

In this article, I’m going to go over AMC short squeeze price predictions along with some TA on key levels the movie theatre chain stock will have to break in order to truly reach its potential.

Let’s get started.

AMC Stock Price Today

AMC Stock Today

Today, AMC stock is trading around $5 per share, respectively.

Shares rose to $8 in December before rejecting and coming back down to roughly $6 and eventually to current share price levels.

2022’s bear market dragged many companies down, and AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. was no exception.

And with talks of a recession creeping in this year, it’s difficult to determine whether prices will stagnate or bounce back soon.

While a short squeeze does not discriminate whether we’re in a bear market or bull market, it’s heavy buying pressure that will ultimately trigger it.

And while AMC’s trading volume hasn’t been anywhere near 2021’s levels, it doesn’t mean it can’t be later this year.

How High is An AMC Short Squeeze Predicted to Go?

amc short squeeze price prediction

There are many AMC short squeeze price predictions from the retail community.

One of the biggest price predictions being $1,000.

In the past year, some would have laughed at you for your lesser capability to see beyond.

More ambitious short squeeze predictions say AMC can reach upwards of $10,000 per share!

Then of course, you have the strong big D energy ‘apes’ that say an AMC MOASS (mother of all short squeezes) will yield $100,000-$500,000 per share.

All fascinating without a doubt.

You might ask, what in the world led retail investors to believe such impossible numbers could be possible to begin with?

The truth is, while hypothetical, these numbers (technically speaking) may be possible.

See, what happened was that wrinkled brain apes from the Reddit community began to experiment with a series of predictions based on the number of naked shares circulating outside the original (and legal) float.

Redditors began to create brackets of equations to identify what (potential) share prices could look like if hedge funds (hypothetically) closed billions upon billions of ‘synthetic shares’.

What did we find?

Denial. Over and over again.

Mainstream media and Wall Street bullied the retail community into a corner and said naked shorting no longer existed.

Retail investors were called conspiracy theorists.

Naked shorting later proved to be the highest probable outcome for an incredible amount of FTDs (fails-to-deliver) in AMC.

CNBC’s Melissa Lee and FOX Business’s Charles Payne eventually began to touch topic on the matter after Trey’s Trades addressed retail’s concerns on interviews.

Naked shorting was now officially being discussed on live television.

But Wall Street kept pressing, denying the existence of dark pools, exchanges used to essentially suppress the price of security or to refrain from the full demand of a stock to reflect its actual share price.

In February of 2022, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler said in an exclusive Bloomberg interview that 90%-95% of retail orders are not processed through the lit exchange but rather through dark pools.

In an interview later in December, the Chairman told ‘We The Investors‘ that he understands retail’s frustrations.

The SEC Chairman was asked if dark pools suppressed the price of stock and whether retail investors could influence the price of a stock if majority of orders traded in the lit exchange.

While there was no direct answer to the suppression of price, the Chairman says that with so much trading happening off-exchange, he doesn’t think it’s a leveled playing field as dark pools give institutions an unfair advantage.

So far, there has been no ‘official confirmation‘ of ‘synthetic shares’ to back up the highest AMC short squeeze predictions.

There’s only been denial.

What’s an AMC Short Squeeze Potential Factoring Out Synthetics?

AMC all-time high price

I’ve shared this equation in the past and the prediction is not accounting for synthetics.

When AMC surged to $72 per share, its short interest had dropped from 22% to 14%, an 8% difference.

Now, while there is no sure way to identify how large positions are per percentage drops, we can gain a little more clarity by analyzing these proven numbers.

Is it probable that if AMC’s short interest had dropped another 8% from 14% down to 6%, the stock would have surged twice its all-time high of $72 per share to $144 per share?

Sure – although not 100% certain, we can begin to see a clearer picture here.

Could we then predict an AMC short squeeze potential to peak between $100-$200 as a rough estimate?


At these numbers, every shareholder (even late buyers) will be in profit.

Having reached $72 per share, it’s fair to say $100-$200 per share is a fair short squeeze potential when you exclude the existence of synthetics.

Some may agree, others will certainly differ.

But if there’s a hard lesson I’ve learned as an options trader, it’s been to never get too greedy when you’re already in profit.

Are Shareholders Still Holding AMC?

There’s been some controversy recently within the community surrounding the CEO.

There are shareholders who criticize Adam Aron for cashing in more than $40 million between late 2021 and early 2022 while shareholders held in order to prevent shares from sliding.

Others are happy to hear the CEO has no interest in selling shares any time soon and has rejected a pay raise for the new year.

Despite the controversy, majority of shareholders continue to hold their stock.

So far, more than 90% of shareholders say they continue to hold their AMC shares in 2023.

I will update the numbers as more investors continue to participate.

Still, some argue that those who voted ‘no’ may have never been shareholders in the first place.

Nasdaq reports that AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE) has only 0.18% institutional ownership.

This means retail investors are the sole owners of AMC’s equity too.

So, the sentiment lines up.

The Rise of The Movie Theatre Industry Is Here

Movie Theatre Industry
Market News: Should you invest in the movie theatre industry?

The movie theatre industry is no longer struggling to attract movie lovers back to the big screen.

While pandemic lockdowns threatened the existence of thriving cinemas, rapidly growing numbers of attendees have continued to grow over the past two years.

The only thing movie theatres are missing is more movie titles, says CEO of AMC Entertainment Adam Aron.

Last year, the industry leader had a 33% increase in attendees from Q3 of 2021, seating more than 53 million guests in Q3 of 2022 alone.

The company has also shown massive progress as debt is substantially cut every year.

AMC’s debt seems to be the #1 problem for Wall Street.

If AMC is able to eliminate this burden, the company might be able to offer more incentives to its shareholders again, such as a cash paying dividend like prior years.

AMC and APE Shares Bounce Back from Record Lows

AMC and APE shares are making a big comeback beginning of the new year already.

AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AMC) shares have managed to rise above its low of $3.86 to $5.80, respectively.

The movie theatre’s equity APE (NYSE:APE) fell below $0.70 in December but has managed to rise to current levels around $3.

Shares of AMC are up more than +47% in the past month while APE’s are up nearly +115%.

AMC Entertainment stock has been a buy for quite a while now given the high probability that it has bottomed.

Although shares can always come back down to retest key levels, an increase in trading volume is suggesting that more investors have begun to buy the movie theatre stock again.

Will AMC Have a Short Squeeze Soon? All You Need to Know

Streaming Services Aren’t Enough

As “Avatar: The Way of Water” gets closer to the $2 billion mark at the worldwide box office, James Cameron says it’s a reminder that moviegoers still value the theatrical experience in an era of streaming dominance.

“I’m thinking of it in the terms of we’re going back to theaters around the world. They’re even going back to theaters in China where they’re having this big COVID surge. We’re saying as a society, ‘We need this! We need to go to theaters.’ Enough with the streaming already! I’m tired of sitting on my ass. Source: Variety.

In recent news, Netflix’s showing of Glass Onion in movie theaters cost the streaming service $200 million for taking it out too early.

In October, AMC announced its first ever Netflix showing in 200 theatres.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery starring Daniel Craig was released in the U.S. as well as the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, and Spain.

The film earned $15 million at the box office but CNBC says the showing could have made $200 million if it had been kept in theatres longer.

The sequel to Johnson’s popular “Knives Out” opened in nearly 700 theaters, the largest release of any Netflix original film to date, 200 of which were AMC Entertainment theatres.

Unfortunately for the online streaming platform, hundreds of millions of dollars were left on the table.

Box office analysts say Glass Onion could have earned much higher earnings if Netflix had opted for a traditional wide release of 2,000 to 4,000 theaters.

The strange release for “Glass Onion” also prompted industry insiders to question the streamer’s theatrical release strategy. 

CNBC stated, “Netflix has backtracked on its previous policies, including by introducing an ad-supported subscription option, leading many to wonder whether the company should rethink its resistance to the traditional Hollywood movie release model as it looks for new ways to grow revenue.

Amazon is Investing Billions in the Movie Theatre Industry

Stock Market News: Amazon plans to invest billions in Movie Theatre Industry.
Stock Market News: Amazon plans to invest billions in Movie Theatre Industry.

Amazon plans to invest more than $1 billion per year into theatrical distribution releases per Bloomberg news.

Amazon.com Inc. will be investing billions of dollars to produce movies that will release in theatres, according to people familiar with the company’s plans.

This is the largest commitment to the movie theatre industry by an internet company, says Bloomberg.

The world’s largest online retailer aims to make between 12 and 15 movies annually that will get a theatrical release.

Amazon is still sorting out this strategy said people who asked not to be identified.

That number of releases puts Amazon on par with major studios such as Paramount Pictures.

CNBC says this is a positive sign for the movie theatre industry.

“While a $1 billion annual investment for film development is on the lower end of what major Hollywood studios spend each year, it’s a positive sign for the movie theater business, which has struggled in the wake of the pandemic.”

How Do Hedge Funds Manipulate The Stock Market?

how do hedge funds manipulate the stock market.
Market News: How hedge funds manipulate the stock market.

Hedge funds have been manipulating the stock market for decades.

But it wasn’t until now that a community has risen to raise awareness of market injustices.

The shorting of both AMC and GameStop stock have uncovered a number of nefarious strategies used against retail investors.

What is the SEC doing to regulate these financial entities?

We’re here to find out.


Let’s get started!

Overleveraging Borrowed Shares

Hedge funds have an incredible supply of short shares available to borrow.

This advantage has allowed them to manipulate a stock’s share price by initiating short-ladder attacks.

While supply and demand are pushing a stock’s price up, hedge funds short the stock using an insane amount of leverage.

This predatorial strategy has yet to be announced as illegal nor has it been addressed by the SEC.

Off Exchange Trading

Hedge funds and market makers are getting away with being able to trade and swap stock in foreign exchanges where the stock’s price isn’t required to be disclosed.

They’re taking retail orders and, in a way, manipulating the circulating supply by not reporting accurate transactions.

We’ve seen this happen with Barclays.

Stock market manipulation
Barclays CEO, Jes Staley – Hedge fund manipulation

Reports by Finra have been made public detailing multiple fines on Barclays for inaccurate books and records.

Barclays is one of Citadel’s clearing houses.

Off exchange trading where transactions aren’t displayed on the list market such as the NYSE is a massive problem the SEC is still trying to figure out.

Though the SEC is trying to implement the D-Limit order that will allow stocks to trade under IEX, they’re having trouble from hedge funds and market makers.

Citadel has sued the SEC on this matter, we have yet to receive a public update on the case.

Related: 95% of Retail Orders Don’t Go Through the Lit Exchange

Naked Shorting

AMC and GameStop have had an incredible amount of FTDs, or failure-to-delivers.

These are orders that have not been executed in options, and are usually a result of a ‘short party’ not owning or not having all of the underlying asset.

This has led retail investors to the educated assessment that synthetic shares are floating in the market; shares known as naked shares used to short a stock.

According to Investopedia, “Despite being made illegal after the 2008–09 financial crisis, naked shorting continues to happen because of loopholes in rules and discrepancies between paper and electronic trading systems.”

Naked shorting has gone mainstream with CNBC’s Melissa Lee and Fox Business’s Charles Payne bringing light to this predatorial practice in the market.

Retail investors must use their voice to address these issues to the SEC.

The Use of Mainstream Media Outlets

According to The Fool, you should invest in this or that “instead”.

We’ve seen the headlines countless times.

The Motley Fool is a source that provides its subscribers with hand-picked stocks with potential gains.

With tremendous respect, stick to what you do.

The integrity of this company is to help investors pick winning stocks, not to divert them from a stock due to its potential upside that can cause hedge fund partners to lose billions of dollars.

And that’s exactly what happened.

No matter how many times mainstream media outlets tried to divert retail investors from buying AMC stock, it cost hedge funds a lot of money all year.

And at the same time, a lot of retail investors have a lot of unrealized gains.

This ladies and gentlemen is how the media has tried to manipulate the performance of a stock.

This influence can sway a new retail investor from adding to the surging volume of shares being purchased in the market.

To the new retail investor – make your financial decisions based on your own due diligence.

Not on what media sources get paid to write about.

Yahoo Finance & InvestorPlace

Platforms such as Yahoo Finance & InvestorPlace have also had their fair share of negative headlines to try and divert the public from skyrocketing AMC to the moon.

With InvestorPlace even throwing a jab at GME investors saying, “If You’ve Made Money On GameStop, You’re Not An Investing Genius”.

Perhaps not, but I’m pretty certain these investors are wealthier than the person who came up with that punchline.

These media sources have been discouraging new retail investors from investing in AMC since the beginning of the year although the stock is up year-to-date!

Manipulation In the Stock Market

Robing Hood? Stock market manipulation

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the Robinhood scandal.

This is another form of manipulation in the stock market caused by the halt of buying power.

Robinhood prevented its users from buying stocks such as AMC and GME (GameStop) during GME’s bull run.

Although restrictions aren’t as tight anymore, we’re beginning to see trusted and beloved companies get exposed as hedge funds worst nightmares become a reality.

Today we’re seeing more people learn about how the stock market moves.

If more of the public is to understand how hedge funds pose a risk to our economy and businesses, we must expose these financial institutions for who they really are.

Read: Why new retail investors investing in AMC should avoid Robinhood

A House of Cards, r/superstonks (Reddit Post)

A Redditor just posted an insane amount of DD on Reddit.

This long form post discusses the transition from paper filled orders in the stock market to the use of computers going tracing back to the mid 80s.

The post reveals the beginning of issuing naked shares.

We’re also learning that a lot of transaction are being held by the actual institutions that are shorting these stocks.

Robinhood routes more than half of it’s customers to Citadel.

This information has now been disclosed via the Washington Post.

You can read the full Reddit post here.

Trey’s Trades does a quick breakdown on this DD as well.

The video is embedded for your viewing pleasure.

It costs retail investors nothing to hold, but it costs shorts and hedge funds money every day.

It’s only a matter of time before a squeeze occurs, no matter how manipulated the stock market gets.
