Will AMC Squeeze in 2022? [Short Interest Data]

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?
AMC Short Squeeze – AMC Entertainment 2022

Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

The Fool thinks you should sell your stock, and their name serves them right.

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 below $20 per share, then you would not be sitting extremely well like a lot of ‘apes’ are.

Investors who bought early are up more than 1200% alone from last year’s run.

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 gone up to 20% again.

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

franknez.com

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

Let’s get started!

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 20%.

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 still heavily shorted at 20%, it is still a short squeeze play in 2022.

A 20% short interest is equivalent to approximately 111.23 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 20% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

AMC’s short interest for 2022 is updated here daily for free, via Ortex.

So, why has AMC stock been going down recently?

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.

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?

Will AMC squeeze in 2022? Game over short sellers | AMC Stock 2022

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

Sitting at 20% 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?

AMC 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..

why AMC won't squeeze

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.

Market regulation in 2022

Market regulation 2022 SEC AMC Stock

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.

Bookmark this step-by-step guide on how to invest in the stock market

AMC continues to be one of retail investors favorite stocks.

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.

Well, just how high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

AMC stock price closed at $15.94 on January 26th. The share volume remains healthy as AMC is primed to take off.

We have broken the $30 and $40 levels of consolidation but have now come down. How soon will AMC rip?

AMC Entertainment has had an amazing runup this year.

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.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on stocks, crypto, entrepreneurship, and market news.

Lets get started.

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 bearish territory due to an array of market abnormalities right now.
  2. ‘W’ shape formations in the past have indicated 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 into the new year.
  5. The stock price is still relatively low enough for majority of people to buy, but hurry before it’s too late.

Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Entertainment Interview

Adam Aron AMC interview
Franknez.com
Adam Aron, CEO & President of AMC Entertainment

Adam Aron has done an outstanding job with the media in the past months and continues to show a positive and bullish sentiment towards AMC.

He is now praised among the retail investors community holding AMC. And for good reason too.

See what CEO and President of AMC entertainment has to say to CNBC news about AMC Entertainment reopening and the Reddit movement.

As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open 4/14
  • 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

In a more recent interview we get an exclusive behind the scenes moment with Trey’s Trades and Adam Aron.

If you haven’t watched the video you’re not gonna want to miss out.

In this personal interview from the CEOs home, Adam Aron talks about the 500 million share dilution, which by the way as of today has been taken off the table, as well as his experience and perspective behind the the Reddit phenomenon.

AMC’s Short Borrow Fee

AMC short borrow fee interest

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 1/26 is: 0.60% via. Stonk-O-Tracker, this is different from the short interest of 20%.

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.

Read: Citadel loses billions: hedge funds are getting dragged down

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 $15.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $15, 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.

Read: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market.

AMC Gamma squeeze before short squeeze

AMC Entertainment continues to be one of the most shorted stocks in the market.

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 with enough momentum.

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?

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 bear?

And if so, how soon?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog providing you with content on stocks, crypto, and market news. Today we’re discussing AMC Entertainment stock.

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 $15.94 on January 26th. The stock has surged since last 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 entertainment continues to be the most heavily shorted stock in the market.

Some of you reading this article might have been holding since January 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.

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.

Is AMC Shorted?

AMC’s current short interest is trading around 20%.

As of 1/26, we’re seeing 6,300,000 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.

AMC Short Shares Available To Borrow

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

BREAKING: Anchorage Capital closes after betting against AMC stock

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 Entertainment Quarter Earnings

Below are AMC’s quarter earnings for 2021, the year the ape movement began.

AMC’s quarter earnings for 2022 will be updated here and on another blog post once those have been announced later this year.

AMC Q1 earnings for 2021

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.

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)

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?

It seems we’ve already hit the bottom.

AMC continues to be heavily shorted through dark pools and other market manipulation tactics.

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 $15.94 per share.

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 or even today.

However, AMC gets really uncomfortable under $30 per share.

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?

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 1/26 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 0.60%.

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 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 70%.

The lives of these retail investors are about to completely change.

Say goodbye to your old world.

Proof of Naked Shares in AMC Has Surfaced [Data Driven]

Proof of naked shares in AMC

The incredible retail community is diving deep into collecting proof of naked shares in the market.

But more specifically in AMC stock.

In a case study done by Log the Float, the data shows more than 128 million shares of AMC were sold on Apex (clearing house), or 43.01% of AMC’s entire float.

It also equivalates to 24.99% of the shares outstanding.

Apex AMC naked shares

Below I break down their proof of naked shorting in AMC.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – proof of naked shorting has surfaced in a data driven article by a community member. I will break down pieces of the long article to simply its content.

Let’s get started!

In this excel file you’ll find that AMC has the largest percentage of shares outstanding compared to a variety of ticker symbols held by Apex.

The second company with the highest shares outstanding is CAR stock at 16%, which just had a short squeeze.

Car Stock Short Squeeze Chart
Car Stock Short Squeeze Chart

Proof of Naked Shorting in AMC

AMC naked shares on Apex
Naked shares AMC

The lowest point of this graph reflects the 24.99% shares outstanding on Apex (December).

You can imagine how much higher this percentage was back in January and May of 2021 (peaks).

So, although we see an incredible amount of share dilution last year, the percentage is still rather high going into 2022.

LTF argues that the percentage should be around 1% or less considering Apex is not even one of the top clearing firms and touches topic on “market-maker alliance”.

While one might argue that we would need more information from other market makers to validate the existence of naked shares, this is certainly a good start.

The argument isn’t about how many naked shares are out there, but whether they exist or not.

Let’s hear what Charles Gradante has to say.

Also, be sure to watch the topic discussion on YouTube at the end of the article.

Charles Gradante on Naked Shorting

In this incredible event panel, hedge fund industry expert Charles Gradante provides us with insight on what’s truly happening from Wall Street’s perspective that mainstream media isn’t talking about.

While mainstream media and regulators look at retail investors, Charles Gradante explains market makers favor shorting stock, creating a massive conflict of interest given the incredible amount of power they have over the markets.

Charles Gradante on meme stocks and market makers

Charles Gradante says regulators don’t know how to handle “it” when referring to the market manipulation surrounding “meme stocks”.

“When shorting got out of hand, the market makers created synthetic shorts”

Charles Gradante

Charles provides retail investors with an immense amount of value in this short video.

He walks us through the taking away of the buy button in order to benefit market makers and hedge funds who went short on AMC and GameStop.

Ladies and gentlemen, we now have proof of naked shares in the market.

Retail investors must now look onto regulators to ensure every single naked share out there is bought back and reflected accurately on the lit market.

The biggest transfer of wealth will require individuals to tackle their rights for it.

Once again, the ape community was right.

What to expect moving forward

franknez.com

AMC stock continues to be bought and held by retail investors across the world in attempts to squeeze big shorts from their positions and create real change in the markets.

The play has become more than just a trade, it’s become a movement.

Persistence and patience are what will create this massive transfer of wealth for anyone holding these heavily and overleveraged stocks.

Regulators will be forced to find solutions with integrity or face the consequences from the new world.

10 Myths About The AMC Apes The Media Has Wrong

Apes Together Strong
Apes Together Strong

Who are the AMC apes?

They’re the retail investors fighting for market change in our financial system.

We’re the ones who saved AMC and GameStop from going bankrupt.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides you with articles on stock, crypto, and market news. Here are 10 myths about the AMC apes the media has wrong.

Let’s get started!

1. “Apes Have No Education”

Apes Together Strong

Apes actually come from a variety of backgrounds and yes, professions.

Retail investors in the community range from your average 9-5 hustlers to business owners, doctors, and even lawyers.

Though many identities are kept hidden, it’s not difficult to see why.

People from all over the world have become an ape for more reasons than just money.

2. “Apes Want To Overthrow The Government”

apes are exposing financial risks

Apes don’t want to overthrow the government, apes actually just want a fair market.

Contrary to how apes are portrayed in the mainstream media, the community is not made up of hooligans who want to overthrow the government.

Apes simply want government to hear the communities concerns regarding the market.

Hedge funds pose risks to our financial system.

The ape community has made it a mission to create real change for a fair market thus sparking a real movement.

3. Not Everyone Is A New Retail Investor

New Retail Investors

The community attracted many new retail investors.

However, many apes have been investing in the stock market for years.

I’ve actually provided the community with my personal long-term winning stock picks for when they’re ready to diversify.

Other apes in the community show new retail investors how to read chart patterns and even how to day-trade other plays that aren’t AMC or GME.

This is the community where the average person can not only learn how to invest in stocks, but also gain magnitudes of value and knowledge.

#4. We Don’t All Hang Out On Reddit

apes wallstreetbets reddit

Although apes started on Reddit, a lot of apes don’t actually affiliate themselves as a ‘Redditor’ or with r/wallstreetbets.

AMC and GME apes have separated from r/wallstreetbets mainly due to an increase in infiltration from shills, toxic persons who’s mission is to bring down the community.

Subcommunities are now much tighter around a variety of influencers within the community as a whole.

And although we don’t often identify as community leaders, influencers have done a great job at keeping retail investors together.

#5. We’re Not 19 Years Old

AMC Apes Retail Investors

Contrary to what the media might think, the ape community is not made up of 19 year-olds.

In fact, majority of apes are much older than that.

But, I won’t give that information out to marketers.

The community isn’t naΓ―ve, there are a lot of wise and intelligent people with real stories and lots of experience here.

The media often times portrays us as rebellious youngsters.

But I believe many of us will actually be the future leaders of our nation.

#6. We Don’t Actually Eat Crayons, Well Sorta

apes eating crayons

Eating crayons is a taunt and is part of the ape community culture.

It’s a message to smart money that we’re dumb money, yet we’re making money while they lose it by shorting AMC and GME stock.

The meaning of eating crayons originally separated us from formally gathering as a community to buy these stocks.

“Buy and hold, but what do I know, I’m just a crayon eating ape.”

Although I must say, I wouldn’t be surprised if some apes do consume these delicious snacks πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚.

#7. “Apes Just Want To Make Quick Money”

apes don't day trade amc or gamestop

If apes wanted to make quick money, then the community would be day-trading AMC and GME stock.

However, that is not the ape way.

Apes buy and hold the stock.

Seasoned apes who got in early could have cashed out tremendous amounts of gains but continue to hold because it’s not about making a quick buck.

It’s about making life changing money through a short squeeze play.

Apes have a why.

In fact, leave a comment below what your why is.

Why do you hold AMC and/or GME stock?

#8. “Apes Worship Adam Aron and Ryan Cohen”

AMC and GameStop Partnership

The community has a tremendous amount of respect for AMC CEO, Adam Aron and GameStop Chairman, Ryan Cohen.

We support them because they’re running the businesses of America’s two favorite stocks.

We want to see them succeed, but we don’t worship them.

In fact, most apes are willing to continue investing in both companies after MOASS, especially if a dividend is announced.

#9. We’re Actually Not Jim Cramer’s Friend

Jim Cramer AMC Apes

Despite The Street’s Jim Cramer portraying to be close to the ape community, he can’t sit with us.

Few apes actually respect the guy, but he can’t sit with us.

Did I mention that?

Mr. Cramer has just contradicted himself too much and the community is huge on trust.

We have more trust for FOX’s Charles Payne and CNBC’s Melissa Lee.

#10. Apes Invest In More Than Just ‘Meme Stocks’

Apes invest in more than just meme stocks

The ape community might have a ton of new retail investors only dedicated to AMC or GME stock specifically.

However, many apes are also invested in other assets such as crypto and even NFTs.

Apes are the retail investors who are finding the early plays and putting their money to work for long-term financial gain.

Some popular crypto apes are currently invested in are Dogecoin and Shiba Inu coin.

These Retail Investors Fight For What’s Right

The AMC and GME communities are a beacon for change.

We seek to establish a fair market so that future generations no longer get taken advantage of by corrupt hedge funds and financial institutions.

I’m confident the fight for a fair market will further continue even after AMC and GME MOASS.

What else does mainstream media need to know about the community?

Why Didn’t AMC Squeeze Last Year in 2021? [Deep Dive]

Why didn't AMC squeeze last year?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze? And can it squeeze this year?

Many of you might be wondering why AMC didn’t squeeze last year in 2021.

The stock had an incredible year overall.

Retail investors who got in for a short squeeze play early came up more than 1000%!

However, these retail investors knowns as ‘apes’ continue to hold the stock into 2022.

After all, people got in for a short squeeze play, not to make a quick buck.

So, why didn’t AMC squeeze last year in 2021?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to touch topic on AMC since it’s been the most anticipated stock of all 2021. You’re going to want to stick around for this one.

Let’s get started!

AMC was one of the most searched for ticker symbols in 2021 and consistently trended on Yahoo Finance throughout the year.

Many of you aren’t new to the blog.

I was an early adopter in the AMC saga and helped a ton of people get in on this play early.

So, what was so special about buying AMC stock in 2021?

After GameStop’s share price increased to incredible levels nearing $500 per share, retail investors noticed AMC’s short interest was also high.

A high short interest meant the stock was heavily shorted therefore short sellers could be squeezed out of their positions, triggering a short squeeze (massive price flux.).

AMC experienced massive gains from $2 per share up to $20 per share.

Momentum then further escalated AMC’s share price to $72 per share before slowly cooling off to today’s price levels.

However, AMC didn’t fully squeeze last year, it merely removed small shorts from their positions during these runups.

But more on that later, let’s break down what is currently going on with AMC stock.

AMC Continues to Be Shorted

AMC Short Shares Available to borrow

AMC was one of the heaviest shorted stocks in the market last year.

Though mainstream media might claim that AMC squeezed last year, it only experienced gamma squeezes (momentum).

Because the short interest did fluctuate, we can access that some short covering did indeed occur.

However, AMC’s short interest is still relatively high.

When AMC soared to $72 per share last year the short interest dropped from 20% to 14%.

AMC’s current short interest is at 20%.

AMC Short Interest 2022

This means there’s ample room for AMC’s share price to continue surging in 2022.

Why didn’t shorts cover their positions in AMC last year?

A few short sellers did cover their short positions in AMC last year, though according to the short interest many open positions remain.

In fact, according to the short interest data, there’s approximately more than 102 million shares on loan that have yet to be closed.

Financial institutions have to close these positions at some point, and that’s whether they’re profitable or not.

Because short squeeze plays are rare, we’re learning more about their development through AMC and GameStop.

The matter of the fact is that AMC Entertainment is no longer going bankrupt so even if the share price drops below $10 and shorts cover profitable, we can expect to see a massive runup from the buying pressure happening all at once.

Why bigger shorts didn’t cover AMC last year is almost like saying why didn’t retail investors sell their stock last year.

Both retail and short sellers are going long on AMC Entertainment stock.

This means eventually individual people from both groups will begin to cave in.

And it’s an entire ecosystem of some taking profits or cutting their losses.

As AMC’s share price continues to drop in 2022, it provides short sellers with open positions in AMC from last year to finally close this year.

The results?

Massive price movements.

Market manipulation events

Market manipulation exposed
Market manipulation exposed

Retail investors who bought AMC stock last year saw a number of ways hedge funds manipulate the market.

From borrowing shares that don’t exist to short the stock, to OTC trading and dark pool trading, retail saw it all.

These predatorial strategies were used in efforts to discourage retail from further buying the stock.

Last year we saw Melvin Capital almost close if it weren’t for Citadel giving them a lifeline.

Mudrick threw in the towel and Archegos went bankrupt.

Anchorage Capital closed after 18 years; they had more than 4 million put options in AMC stock and were one of the top 10 institutional firms shorting AMC stock last year.

Another hedge fund on that list is Citadel Securites who lost billions in AMC in 2021, negatively affecting their customers.

Will this trend continue in 2022?

Leave a comment below.

How long can shorts drag not covering?

Just as retail investors can go long on a stock for many years, short sellers can also drag not covering for long periods of time.

This squeeze play will have intermittent episodes where we see some covering before new shorts open a position.

AMC Entertaiment is a hot spot for short sellers to bet against the stock and the company’s progress.

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?

Why didn't AMC Squeeze in 2021? Can AMC squeeze in 2022?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze in 2021? Can AMC still squeeze in 2022?

As AMC’s share price continues to tumble, short sellers may begin to take profits by closing their short positions.

It’s this buying pressure that will ultimately lead AMC to experience major price moves this year.

Whether these price moves will trigger a chain of short covering or not is an event that has yet to unfold.

Could AMC squeeze in 2022?

Absolutely.

But while regulators fall back on the uncovering of synthetics, for now the short interest is the only data that confirms how much potential this squeeze has.

Don’t miss today’s topic discussion on YouTube at the end of the article.

Bank of America Has Been Illegally Shorting AMC Stock

Bank of America has been shorting AMC Stock

If you bank with Bank of America chances are they’ve been using your hard-earned money to short AMC stock.

Financial institutions have been shorting AMC stock all year, resulting in billions of dollars in losses.

Bank of America also has a 75% probability of going bankrupt according to MacroAxis (more on that below).

The shorting of meme stocks could explain why the bank is currently facing liquidity issues.

Franknez.com Bank of America bankruptcy

Welcome to Franknez.com – so much information is coming to fruition. I’m piecing bits of information that have been revealed in the last few months.

Let’s get started!

Information from one of my articles has been circulating the entire community recently.

In this article, I go over how AMC continues to be the most shorted stock in the market. This is going to be a very important piece of info.

Bank of America Is Shorting AMC Stock

Bank of America is on the list of the top 10 institutions shorting AMC stock.

BofA is known for being an untrustworthy bank for the people, so it comes as no surprise.

They’ve been cheating the system by demanding printed money from the feds to lend to short sellers.

The insane part of this scheme is that everyone is a part of it.

I’ll touch topic on that below.

Bank of America shorting AMC Stock
SOURCE

A lot of the puzzle pieces seem to be connecting now.

Boston and Dallas Fed presidents Kaplan and Rosengren were fired due to investing in securities while playing a major role in creating monetary policy.

Repos have been at record high this year.

The feds have been pumping so much money into the financial systems for banks and hedge funds to maintain margin requirements from.

Hedge funds have been overleveraging their positions due to betting against retail investors who aren’t giving up the fight for a fair market, and a short squeeze play in their favorite ‘meme stocks’.

Now, 34 of the largest banks are being required to hold $1 trillion in capital, enough to be able to loan mortgages and business loans during an economic downturn such as a recession.

Will banks margin call hedge funds to meet the new capital requirements as of October 1st?

Or will they default?

Hedge Funds Just Got Smaller

We’re beginning to see financial institutions throw other institutions under the bus.

Citadel began pointing fingers towards Robinhood during a rant on Twitter.

I think very soon we’re going to see banks do the same towards hedge funds.

Will hedge funds be able to pay back banks?

Someone has to pay back the overleveraged debt they owe.

What started from a Robinhood and Citadel scandal just climbed the hierarchy and is now involving both the banks and feds.

This could be the biggest financial scandal in history.

Is America Headed Towards Financial Collapse?

Janet Yellen Hedge Funds

Janet Yellen just recently said, “there are issues relating to hedge funds and the possibility of leverage, they can trigger financial runs.”

So, we know that any chance of financial ruin in the markets is tied to overleveraged hedge funds and financial institutions.

Hedge funds have been borrowing money from both the banks and the feds.

The feds weren’t stopping overleveraged institutions from borrowing money, but rather contributing to their needs and gaining from them, as seen with Kaplan and Rosengren.

It seems leaders are washing their hands before these scandals continue to escalate.

A substantial portion of Citadel’s assets are held by Bank of America’s clearing house “BAML“.

Powerful leaders are fleeing the crime scene. Who are the first to flee a sinking ship?

Leave a comment below if you know the answer to this one.

Will Bank of America Go Bankrupt?

Bank of America has a ‘more than 75%’ probability score for bankruptcy, via MacroAxis.

The fact is there is no path that can save overleveraged institutions or short sellers betting against retail investors right now.

The future of the short seller is grim.

Bank of America bankruptcy

To make matter worse for the bank, retail investors are pulling their money out from the bank before things get a little more severe.

In fact, one of my personal family members just moved 98% of their money from BofA into a brokerage account.

Overleveraged hedge funds and banks will be the cause of the next financial collapse.

Something massive is coming very soon and I know the community can feel it.

I speculate paper-hand sellers will soon re-enter the markets as the first wave of short sellers begin to close out their positions.

This momentum will only further complicate the state of emergency these financial institutions are currently in.

What Happens If A Bank Goes Bankrupt?

If a bank goes bankrupt, the FDIC must collect and sell the assets of the bank and settle its debt.

For AMC and GME shareholders, this means that all the shares that were borrowed will finally get bought back.

Heavily shorted stocks would skyrocket as overleveraged debt is finally closed out.

The results? MOASS (mother of all short squeezes).

The momentum from billions of shares being bought back could push ‘meme stocks’ to unprecedented numbers.

Whether Bank of America goes bankrupt will depend on whether they file for bankruptcy protection or not.

A short squeeze play is imminent and there’s no doubt financial institutions are preparing for it.

The Stock Market Is Rigged

“The stock market is a rigged game for the wealthy as corporate execs can hide behind trading plans as they buy or sell stock, sometimes based on nonpublic information.” via ZeroHedge.

We’re seeing this happen right before our very own eyes. Fed presidents Kaplan and Rosengren were using their power to mold regulation in theirs and their partners favor.

Bank of America has been a liquidity refuge for Citadel, allowing them to overleverage their positions in heavily shorted stock without repercussions.

We saw that Robinhood executives sold AMC and GME stock right before halting trading back in January of this year.

The Citadel scandal has been the talks all over Reddit and Twitter. Citadel and Robinhood had communication about which ticker symbols would be halted.

The stock market is a device that has been created for the wealthy to leverage their wealth to build more wealth.

The SEC has proven to have little to no power.

Now, that doesn’t mean retail investors don’t have a chance at the market. Corporate executives simply have a much stronger edge.

Our voice and DD have been very powerful tools in fighting corruption in the markets.

We’ve been able to inform the public of what’s been occurring all while setting ourselves up for an immense short squeeze play.

What a journey.

The Greatest Transfer Of Wealth Is Commencing

franknez.com

I believe this scheme revolving shorting meme stocks is finally coming to a close.

Empires are crumbling and new ones will rise.

But before new ones rise, retail investors would have made history by beating the financial system at its own game first.

It seems more information is being revealed with each day that passes.

I don’t think retail investors have had an upper hand like this before.

And unfortunately for short sellers, they’re about to get burned again.

This time for good.

Why is AMC Stock Going Down? [3 BIG Reasons]

why is AMC stock going down?
3 Big Reasons why AMC stock is going down

AMC stock continues to have an incredible amount of demand for the stock, so why is AMC stock going down?

After all, the ape community has made it almost one whole year without selling the stock.

Shouldn’t big short sellers be closing their positions by now?

The answer is simpler than you think.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today we’re diving into 3 BIG reasons why AMC stock is going down. Here’s what you need to know.

Let’s get started!

Now, I published this same exact topic discussion on my YouTube channel so if you’re subscribed then you might have already watched it.

Either way, I will embed it at the end of the article for your viewing pleasure as it will enhance this article.

Why is AMC stock dropping?

why is AMC stock dropping?
Why is AMC dipping?

AMC stock has been dropping for a few months now.

Its steady downtrend has retail investors wondering what in the world is going on, and whether the stock will pick up again.

High rewards come with high risks, and it would be wise to remember to never overleverage your investments.

If you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, you’ll be happy to hear AMC’s share price decline is only temporary.

I said this earlier in our topic discussion on the channel; just like bull markets don’t last forever, neither do bear markets.

Eventually we’ll see a correction.

Let’s start with the first reason why AMC stock has gone down.

#1. Omicron & Covid news

Omicron news stock market

AMC stock is down due to various publishers pushing fears about Omicron and Covid news.

Now, AMC is not the only stock affected by this, the entire market has been hit because of the grim news.

Growing cases in the United States of the variant could cause businesses to have setbacks again.

Due to the uncertainty of how the variant will affect the economy, stocks are taking a massive toll from fear of the unknown.

AMC stock is down to a variety of reasons, but this economic fear is everywhere and is affecting the entire market, including the century old movie theatre chain.

#2. Adam Aron selling has driven AMC stock down

Adam Aron selling shares

Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment sold hundreds of thousands of shares, cashing in millions of dollars for his estate planning.

The admired CEO had notified shareholders of the company mid last year on his plans of doing so towards the end of the year.

Dumping hundreds of thousands of shares proved to move AMC’s stock price down as the ape community held.

While most of the community is indifferent about his decision, his actions moved AMC’s share price down significantly, especially due to a negative media.

Coverage by mainstream media only fueled this fire as more short sellers have begun to enter the play.

AMC’s short interest has risen from 16% to almost 20%!

When you combine the Covid news with bad press about the CEO taking profits, AMC’s share price is sure to take a hit as we have seen.

However, these two reasons why AMC stock is going down aren’t as big as this third one.

And I know many of you know where this is going.

#3. AMC stock continues to be heavily shorted

shorting AMC stock

Mainstream media might have painted a little picture about how AMC experienced a short squeeze last year but that’s far from the truth.

After all, these shill platforms are all tied together by News Corp., a company Citadel Securities’ Ken Griffin is invested in.

AMC stock continues to be heavily shorted even in 2022.

Hedge funds have been using market manipulation strategies to suppress the stock from squeezing them from their short positions.

These financial institutions lost billions from shorting AMC stock in hopes the company would go bankrupt in 2021.

Since then, hedge funds like Mudrick, Archegos, and Anchorage Capital, who betted against AMC Entertainment, have closed.

Big hedge funds such as Citadel Securities have not closed their short positions in AMC causing turmoil for their customers.

The multi-billion-dollar hedge fund has even received a lifeline of $1.2 billion from partners Sequoia and Paradigm, their first private funding ever.

Even as hedge funds overleverage themselves to drive AMC stock down, it’s only a matter of time before more begin to throw in the towel.

Here’s what to expect in the coming weeks

AMC stock and the market in general will eventually start to see a correction.

Remember, bull markets don’t last forever.

However, keep in mind that AMC stock may still drop lower in price due to various market abnormalities (i.e., Omicron news, global market risks like Evergrande, market manipulation).

One thing is certain.

AMC’s short interest is more than high enough to squeeze shorts from their positions.

When AMC’s SI dropped from 20% to 14%, we saw the company’s share price surge from $14 to $72.

The short interest is nearing 20% again with other brokers showing much higher.

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

Welcome to Franknez.com β€“ the blog that fights for you, the retail investor. Today I want to discuss short covering.

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 1/24 is: 0.70% 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.

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 fee has gone down, shorts are still paying a price for going long.

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 shorts resulting in 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 its first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

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 possibly 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 around $16 per share as of 1/24.

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.

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.

What percent does the short borrow fee have to be?

AMC’s short borrow fee is currently at 0.70%, via. Stonk-O-Tracker on 1/24.

There seems to be some sort of manipulation or loophole here. The borrow interest rate 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.

Overstock Founder Says SEC Has Always Turned A “Blind Eye”

Overstock founder Patrick Byrne on Market Manipulation and short selling
Overstock founder Patrick Byrne on Market Manipulation and short selling

Overstock Founder Patrick Byrne says the SEC has always turned a blind eye when it comes to predatorial practices in the stock market.

AMC and GME stock have both seen an incredible amount of naked shorting, but regulators have failed to enforce market makers and hedge funds from closing their overleveraged short positions.

The Overstock Founder has an extensive history of fighting for a fair market and explains why the SEC has always turned a blind eye.

I’m going to breakdown key highlights to this incredible interview and embed the video for your viewing pleasure at the end of the article.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that fights for retail investors and exposes injustices in the market. Today we’re discussing the biggest scandal in history.

Let’s get started!

Who is Patrick Byrne?

Now, if you are not familiar with who Patrick Byrne is, he’s the founder of Overstock.com, an online retail company.

Patrick Byrne has a history of exposing injustices in the market after Overstock experienced an incredible amount of shorting.

His activism and knowledge in the markets grabbed the attention of Chinese economists.

The Chinese have adopted Patrick’s principles and knowledge on how to properly build and run an efficient market that eliminates systemic risk to the country.

He has been under several investigations by the SEC due to exposing the corruption no one is willing to change.

How deep are hedge funds in AMC and GameStop?

AMC and GameStop

According to the Overstock founder, he describes short sellers as having their foot on top of a bouncing betty.

Meaning as soon as they take their foot off, a massive explosive is triggered.

The expression denotes the particular circumstances hedge funds and market makers are currently in.

Hedge fund industry expert, Charles Gradante has recently stated that market makers created naked shares to refrain AMC and GameStop from further causing hedge funds great distress.

Read the full article here.

Now, Patrick Byrne confirms hedge funds and market makers will do anything to get out of this sticky situation.

Including using the media to attack AMC and GameStop, and even buy regulators in the SEC to allow the market manipulation to continue.

According to the Overstock founder, the only way out of that bouncing betty is to drive the stock’s price to 0.

Something retail investors are not allowing to happen.

Overstock Founder says the SEC, DTCC, and Fed are all corrupt

SEC is corrupt

In this incredible interview, Patrick depicts all regulators as a stack of turtles (I’ll embed the video below).

They’re all corrupt, all the way down, no matter the branch.

He’s heard Gary Gensler is not one of the ‘corrupt ones’; but although intelligent, might not know how to fix the problem.

Retail investors have been raising awareness of market injustices in hopes to receive acknowledgement from Gary Gensler.

However, the SEC Chairman has failed to take matters seriously.

What will trigger AMC and GameStop to squeeze?

what will cause AMC and GameStop to squeeze

If short sellers are doing everything in their power to drive AMC’s and GameStop’s prices to 0, then retail truly is the only solution.

Buying and holding the stock is what’s keeping AMC and GameStop from going to 0.

If hedge funds drive these two stocks’ price down to 0, they win, and the bouncy betty is disassembled.

And the only way they can accomplish this is if retail investors call it quits.

So, we know that as long as retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock, hedge funds cannot drive the price down to 0.

What is the solution?

Time.

Every day, every week, and every month that hedge funds have not closed their positions, they lose money.

While retail investors accrue unrealized losses, hedge funds and market makers pay a fee to keep to their short positions open.

The time of desperation is already here.

The markets are getting liquidated, mainstream media continues to spread FUD about AMC and GameStop, and retail investors are not leaving.

You’ve already won if you’re holding either stock, you are the bouncing betty.

These multibillion-dollar companies are working together to scare you out of your money first.

They’re doing this by continuously overleveraging their positions and driving the share price down in hopes that retail will sell, and they’ll take the companies down to 0.

Be sure to watch this incredible interview on Overstock founder Patrick Byrne.

Exposing manipulation in the markets

Citadel Securities market manipulation

It’s going to take more than just time to trigger a short squeeze.

A short squeeze is going to require the community to demand proper market structure.

Patrick talks about T-Zero and blockchain technology as solutions that would eliminate naked shorting and the suppression of a stock’s share price in the market.

But the SEC considers the Overstock founder’s idea as market manipulation.

The retail community will not squeeze shorts from their positions unless proper market structure is demanded.

Short sellers will need their foot off the bouncing betty for AMC and GameStop to squeeze.
