Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s dive right into it!

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

Mainstream media wants retail to lose

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s the latest on the channel.

AMC Short Interest Data (2022)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

AMC’s short interest is currently at 21.55%.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Who is AMC stock for?

Popcorn

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

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

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

Reasons why AMC wont squeeze in 2022..

I’ve always been transparent with the community.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The community has always been a beacon for change.

Apes will need to voice market concerns to elevate awareness.

Market regulation in 2022

Market regulation 2022 SEC

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.

Will AMC Stock Go Up? [2022 Deep Dive]

Will AMC stock go up?
Will AMC stock surge again?

AMC has been trending downwards since its rise up to $72 per share and now retail investors are wondering, will AMC stock go up?

In a recent article I break down 3 BIG factors that have influenced AMC’s downward trajectory in the past few months.

Although AMC’s share price has been plummeting, the demand for the stock has not.

This key point is going to play a big role in what happens to AMC stock after this bear market is over.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to lay a few key points you should take into consideration if you’re holding AMC stock or thinking of buying it.

Let’s get started!

AMC stock had an incredible year in 2021.

The stock reached an all-time high of $72 per share with only 21% short interest at the time.

Once the share price began to come down, AMC’s short interest had come down to 14%.

Well, AMC’s short interest is back up to 18% again meaning short sellers have not learned their lesson.

Another key point I’m going to discuss below.

Can AMC’s share price still surge?

Can AMC's share price still go up?

As we start the new year, AMC’s average daily volume is incredibly high.

AMC has an average volume of 46 million with many days surpassing this amount.

So why isn’t AMC’s massive demand reflecting in the share price?

That’s the question the ‘ape community’ has been asking regulators all year 2021.

Too many eyes are on regulators right now and at some point, some suppression inflicted by hedge funds will have to subside.

And aside from Omicron and Covid news affecting the entire market, AMC’s massive volume will eventually push the stock price up during a correction.

What does this mean for retail investors?

If you’re looking to get in on AMC for a short squeeze, know the risks, but understand that once this stock takes off you will not be able to buy it at these prices again.

Deflating the short interest

AMC Short Interest

Deflating AMC’s short interest like we saw back in January and June means AMC stock will go up significantly higher from its current share price.

Small short covering allowed AMC to reach $72 per share back in June of 2021.

So why can AMC stock still skyrocket?

Despite the heavy buying volume from retail, AMC still has more than enough short interest percentage to squeeze shorts from their positions.

2022 is only the sequel to 2021’s runup.

The reason mainstream media doesn’t want you to know this is because of their ties to hedge funds and private financial institutions.

These institutions are ‘short’ on AMC and GameStop, meaning they’re betting against them.

Pushing propaganda that will feed their narrative is the safest way for hedge funds to derail retail from further buying the stock that could cause them to default.

Hedge funds such as Melvin Capital, Anchorage Capital, Mudrick, & Archegos are out of the game.

Citadel Securities on the other hand continues to be short on AMC stock and seems to be having a hard time weathering this retail storm.

This is why mainstream media will not touch topic on the short interest data that could squeeze shorts from their positions.

AMC Entertainment fundamentals

AMC Entertainment fundamentals

A short squeeze play has nothing to do with AMC Entertainment’s fundamentals.

The reason being is that retail goes based off of how much shorting there is in the company stock.

Buying the stock en masse (big volume) will cause AMC stock to go up, forcing shorts to close their positions and buy back their shares; triggering a short squeeze.

A short squeeze play does not depend on the performance of the company as a business.

AMC’s fundamentals are not the greatest, the company does have a lot of debt.

However, something mainstream media is not discussing is just how much their debt has gone down each quarter since 2021.

AMC Entertainment’s fundamentals are a discussion I will be touching topic on another blog post very soon so be sure to join the newsletter.

And although AMC still has quite aways to clear their debt, the company has become one of the first to lead crypto innovation and accept payment in cryptocurrencies.

Tesla has now followed by accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment on their merchandise too.

Debt is the only thing holding AMC Entertainment from being a fundamental buy in the eyes of most in the industry.

AMC Entertainment partnerships

Partnerships

AMC partnered with Chance the Rapper last year for his concert movie release.

CEO Adam Aron announced that they would be working on partnering up with industry leaders for licensing agreements that would allow AMC to provide more of these experiences to their audiences around the world.

Another successful showing was the UFC fight they held in theatres.

The CEO also expressed his optimism surrounding showing highly anticipated sports events in theatres, granted licensing of course.

Retail investors have been specifically waiting for an AMC-GameStop partnership.

A topic Adam Aron teased could be in the works at some point.

AMC theatres released “GameStop: Rise of the Players” on January 28th, earlier this year.

One thing you cannot deny is the community strength and company relationship to its shareholders.

It’s never been seen before.

Do you own AMC stock?

Leave a comment below.

So, will AMC stock go up again?

franknez.com

Based on trader sentiment, community sentiment, and continuous innovation from the company, AMC stock will surge again.

This bear market won’t last forever.

And although the entire market is rather shaky at the moment, there will be a correction.

Hedge funds might have leverage to short the stock, but the people aren’t leaving.

AMC Entertainment will have to focus on growth and revenue if they are to get out of debt in the future.

How Much Will APE Stock Be Worth?

how much will APE stock be worth?
Market News: Everything you need to know about AMC’s APE Stock Dividend

AMC shareholders are wondering how much APE stock will be worth.

The dividend was announced during AMC’s 2022 Q2 earnings call and has received a lot of attention.

But there seems to be a lot of misinformation going around regarding the dividend, as well as some hard truths.

In this article I’m going to break down how much APE stock will be worth and what shareholders can expect in the coming weeks for AMC.

Let’s get started!

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – if you haven’t joined the newsletter, be sure to do that below. I’m publishing market news and updates daily.

Let’s dive right into it!

Who will receive APE Stock?

AMC Ape

AMC shareholders will receive 1 APE stock for every 1 share of AMC they hold at the end of the trading day of August 15th, per AMC’s press release.

Shareholders should see the new dividend stock reflect in their broker accounts the following week by Monday the 22nd.

APE stock is not a cash dividend which means shareholders will be able to trade the security like any other stock.

“These 516,820,595 new “AMC Preferred Equity units” will trade on the New York Stock Exchange with the symbol APE”, said CEO Adam Aron in a tweet earlier this month.

Shareholders who sell AMC stock prior to the closeout date will not receive APE stock upon the issue date.

Will APE expose synthetic shares?

AMC Ape Stock

There is a 50/50 chance APE stock will expose synthetic shares.

The reason being is that AMC Entertainment has already issued the 516.8 million equity units per outstanding AMC shares.

This means that the equity units already belong to every individual shareholder.

The problem will arise only when AMC shareholders do not receive APE stock.

If AMC shareholders only receive partial APE securities, then brokers will need to address the issue at hand.

An incomplete batch of APE stock could signify shareholders are indeed holding phantom shares.

But how likely is this scenario?

It’s very unlikely since naked shares tend to be transacted outside the lit exchange and are not traceable/recorded for the public.

Here’s what the CEO had to say regarding synthetic shares upon the announcement of this new equity unit.

The preferred equity dividend will go ONLY to company issued shares so if there are institutions holding synthetic shares, they will simply not receive APE.

How much will APE Stock be worth?

No, APE stock will not be worth $0.01 as many thought per AMC’s press release.

Adam Aron confirmed the “$0.01” referred to be merely a ‘placeholder’ used for technical legal terms.

APE stock will be worth approximately 50% of where AMC shares traded just before the dividend.

From there, market trading conditions will determine the ongoing share price of APE stock.

This means that if AMC traded at $25 per share before the dividend goes into effect, shareholders will see both AMC and APE stock reflect $12.50 per share each.

The value of AMC shareholders’ portfolios will not change but rather be divided in half by these two securities.

In other words, the value will be the sum of 1 AMC share plus 1 APE.

What’s up with Dilution rumors?

Is APE stock diluting AMC shares?

Yes and no.

While AMC shares are not being diluted, the introduction of APE stock allows the company to use half of the value of AMC shares to raise capital and pay down debt if they choose to.

Since shareholders have expressed they do not want to dilute AMC anymore, AMC Entertainment’s solution was to create a separate security (APE) from which they could use instead.

For the company, it’s a great fundamental move.

For shareholders, it means giving the company access to half of your capital.

Good or bad, this will depend on what the company means to each individual shareholder of course.

Some will be happy to play such an important role in the company’s growth and fundamentals, others not so much.

Many AMC shareholders purchased the stock to make money from a short squeeze so naturally there could be concerns.

Still, short sellers are betting against a company who are great at business and at raising capital, which is not ideal for them.

AMC Entertainment has proven time and time again Wall Street cannot stop their progress, growth, and innovation.

And where there are short sellers, there is a squeeze potential.

Final thoughts

Investors who purchased AMC stock to make some serious money must check-in with their conviction.

Although AMC’s share price will be divided in half, it will be up to investors to identify whether squeezing short sellers is still a priority.

And if it is, then APE stock should only be seen as another fundamental power move by the company to combat Wall Street opps (opposers).

Money should always be circulating, and that is what AMC Entertainment is successfully doing.

The question is, how will you as an investor allow your money to circulate and work for you?

That decision is yours and only yours to make.

AMC Becomes One of The Most Purchased Stocks

Market News: AMC becomes one of the most purchased stocks on Fidelity
Market News: AMC becomes one of the most purchased stocks on Fidelity

Wall Street is baffled as AMC becomes one of the most purchased stocks on Fidelity in the past week.

Mark Taylor from Mirabaud Securities says “the ‘smart guys’ are confused and fighting from a position of weakness.”

But has the retail community really been that covert?

The retail community has been fighting against market injustices for over a year now, which a lot has been an effort to drive short sellers out of ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC and GameStop.

‘Meme stocks’ have been suppressed by market makers and short sellers in order to prevent the stocks’ high demand from causing further losses.

It was reported AMC short sellers had lost more than $1 billion this year so far.

Are retail investors about to deliver another blow to Wall Street?

Let’s discuss it!

AMC breaks $20 again

AMC Entertainment stock has broken the $20 levels again.

It’s going to have to hold well above $26-$27 if retail investors are to see it beyond $30 again.

AMC had peaked to $27.47 during the pre-market but underperformed like majority of stocks.

While trading volume in the past two days has been over 100m, today’s volume showed signs of cooling momentum.

Still, AMC is holding around $22.50 relatively well.

Shareholders are loading up on the stock prior to the new dividend distributions.

AMC will be distributing 1 APE stock for every 1 AMC share investors hold.

The new security will be tradable in the market and will provide the company with liquidity to pay down their debt and raise cash if need be.

For investors, a cash cow that may significantly grow in value.

This incentive is attracting more investors to buy the theatre chain stock and causing confusion amongst short sellers.

But there’s one thing mainstream media isn’t discussing, and that’s that retail activists and shareholders aren’t going anywhere.

Some folks truly don’t know

The retail community might have been painted as degenerates that originated from the Wall Street Bets Reddit forum and that what happened last year simply happened.

But that’s not the case at all.

The activist community has grown and has aimed at the SEC for its incompetence in market structure.

Marketing campaigns have sprawled on the streets of Chicago calling out Citadel’s Ken Griffin for market manipulation and Gary Gensler for allegedly being complicit.

Even the DTCC is under fire by retail investors yearning for change in the market.

The Depositary Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) had its windows covered with flyers that read – DTCC, Disgraceful, Thieving, Complicit, Committee “allowing financial crimes under their watch”.

The market manipulation that has suppressed ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC for over a year now have prevented the stock from squeezing the big players from the game.

Loopholes have raised the attention of millions of investors who simply want to participate in a fair market where supply and demand dictate price action, not market makers and complicit regulators.

Some folks don’t truly know this, but this is a new breed of retail investors.

‘Meme stocks’ become beacons for change

So why are people becoming obsessive with stocks such as AMC and GameStop?

It’s because in today’s world, people are obsessed with real positive change.

For change in their daily lives, change in the financial lives, and change in the markets for the future generation.

Wall Street will very soon notice it’s time to pass the torch.

Finance is changing, culture is changing.

This is why AMC stock has become one of the most purchased stocks in the market.

AMC Q2 Earnings Highlights (2022)

AMC Q2 Earnings Highlights
Market News: AMC beats earnings Q2 2022

AMC Q2 earnings have shareholders excited for the future.

The movie theatre chain company had its best 2nd quarter in 3 years, seating more than 59 million guests, up 61% from two years prior.

But perhaps the biggest news yet for AMC Entertainment is its new and upcoming stock dividend, $APE.

Which I’ll discuss more about below.

AMC yields positive results for Q2 2022

AMC Entertainment announced it had its best Q2 in 3 years, up 61% from its previous two years according to CEO Adam Aron.

The company was able to seat more than 59 million guests worldwide in Q2 alone, due to massive titles such as Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness and Top Gun: Maverick.

Top Gun Maverick is currently the highest grossing film this year nearing $1.3 billion at the box office.

In Q2, AMC had $52 million of positive operating cash flow and $107 million positive EBITDA, which is relative to the strength of a company.

The company ended Q2 with $1.18 billion in liquidity, a trend we’ve seen in the past with Q1 of 2022.

AMC announced it had reduced its deferred rent by more than $250 million and plans to reduce it by another $40 million ending the year.

While AMC has become a target for Wall Street firms and journalists, it looks like opposers will continue to eat crow for the time being.

The largest movie theatre chain in the world has become a force to be reckoned with.

AMC issues APE dividend

One of the most exciting news confirmed during AMC’s Q2 earnings call was that of the issue of a new dividend.

Investors holding AMC Entertainment stock by August 19 will be granted a new stock for each AMC share they hold under the stock ticker symbol $APE.

This will be an additional security and will not dilute AMC’s float as it is a separate stock.

The ticker symbol APE stands for ‘AMC Preferred Equity’.

AMC plans to use this currency as a means to pay down debt and raise additional cash.

The new currency will be available to all international AMC shareholders and will be tradable in the market.

So, was AMC’s Q2 earnings what you expected?

Is AMC Stock Due to Go Up Next Week?

Will AMC stock go up next week?

AMC stock finished up +5.45% on Friday.

The largest movie theatre chain in the world is down 55% this year as the DOW and SPY also face major pushback.

Stocks have fallen year-round, and AMC is no exception.

However, it’s important to remember that unrealized losses aren’t really losses.

Majority of companies have also had rocky earnings for 2022’s first quarter.

But how is AMC looking for next week?

AMC Q1 earnings call 2022

AMC Entertainment is just announced their Q1 earnings call for 2022 earlier in May.

The company has beat every quarter earnings since 2021 as more guests attended AMC movie theatres.

AMC announced earlier this year that as of Q4 of 2021, the company now has a positive EBITDA.

EBITDA provides investors with a snapshot of a company’s overall financial performance.

Fundamentally speaking, it’s a massive win for AMC Entertainment as a business.

AMC Shareholders were able to arm the company with more than $1.8 billion in liquidity for Q4 of 2021 and ended Q1 of 2022 with $1.7 billion.

CEO and President Adam Aron said this $1.7 billion will provide AMC with more security and flexibility to go on the offense.

Given the number of titles that have been released so far (and upcoming), AMC should have no trouble dominating in 2022.

Related: AMC Dominates with Powerful Q1 Results: Highlights

AMC’s Q1 earnings will matter later

Despite AMC’s incredible improvement in the past year (and this year), earnings calls played a very little role in the company’s overall stock price.

AMC’s EBITDA improved this new year.

Analysts believed AMC and the entire movie theatre industry were going to collapse after the Covid lockdowns, but AMC proved them wrong.

AMC hosted approximately 60 million guests in the United States, Europe, and Middle East in Q4 alone.

And as Covid restrictions have been lifted in 2022, people are feeling safer attending the movies and other public events today.

This bear market is tanking stocks despite good or bad news as majority of the market mimics the SPY, down more than 15% this year.

What will truly move the markets is the transition from bear to bull market.

But if you haven’t heard of executive order 14032 yet, it’s incredible.

And I’ll touch more on it below.

Related: Are You Holding Significant Losses in AMC Stock?

Executive order 14032 goes into effect soon

If you haven’t read about executive order 14032 yet, you have to take time to read about it soon.

This order is going to affect the markets in an incredible way.

We recently saw small uptick in AMC after hours when it released positive earnings for Q1 of 2022, but it wasn’t able to maintain it due to the pull of the market.

AMC finished green on Friday, up 5.45%.

What is next week looking like?

SPY stock has hit $400 per share quite a few times, which leads me to believe it’s possible this area could be a strong level of support.

For an entire week straight, this level played a very important role, so we’ll have to keep an eye out on where things go from here.

A lot of the market follows the trajectory of the SPY (S&P 500), so we could very well see AMC consolidate for a while, mirroring the rest of the market.

If the SPY begins to make a break and move upwards, we could very well see AMC start a similar pattern, and vice versa.

But regardless of what happens, early June seems like it will be a very important time for AMC due to executive order 14032.

I’m curious to learn what you think.

AMC, GME Soar: Volume Proves There is a Massive Demand

AMC and GME
Market News: AMC and GME soar due to massive retail demand

AMC and GME soared Thursday morning as buy orders filled the market.

Both stocks were momentarily halted, though it seems GameStop had stricter halts.

AMC surged from $9.82 per share to $13.46 per share during the rally.

GameStop skyrocketed from $78.09 per share to $108.05 per share before getting halted.

Mainstream media boasted that retail investors were done with so called ‘meme stocks’.

But unless you’re in the community, you know this is a blatant corporate lie.

AMC and GME’s trading volume proves there is a massive demand for the stocks.

Let’s discuss it.

AMC is a top holding for Millennials and Gen Z investors

Market Rebellion says Tesla, Apple, and AMC are the top holdings of the average Millennial and Gen Z investor.

And while they are not wrong, they missed another generation, Gen X – also known as boomers.

The ape community is made up of many boomers.

In fact, I’ve talked to more boomers in the community than Gen Z investors.

Perhaps that’s just my circle, but I’ve been part of the community since its inception.

And every time the media published FUD headlines stating both AMC and GME plays were over, millions of people laughed.

AMC became the most popular stock of 2021 and continues to be the most popular stock in 2022.

And believe me when I say, retail investors aren’t leaving.

AMC and GME volume skyrockets as demand surges

AMC and GME

We saw a very similar occurrence in late March where both AMC and GME began to surge due to big buying volume.

But both stocks were halted, leaving retail investors extremely disappointed with the blatant market manipulation.

AMC climbed up to $34 per share while GameStop claimed $200 per share.

Retail investors didn’t leave then, and they’re not leaving now.

AMC’s current trading volume is more than double its average of 48.1 million.

GameStop’s is also more than double its average of 4.1 million.

We saw high buying pressure early in the market as the two ‘meme stocks’ took the lead and left corporate media pinched.

No matter how much mainstream media lies and says these two plays are dead, the truth is still the truth.

Both AMC and GME have incredible short squeeze potential, and the only thing keeping them from skyrocketing is open short positions.

Volume, however, could create big panic and set off a chain reaction enabling shorts to close their positions.

Short interest data

AMC and GME short interest

Just how AMC and GME’s high volume proves there is still a massive demand for the two stocks, the short interest proves these are short squeeze plays.

Both AMC and GME have very high short interest.

AMC short interest: 21.44% | GME short interest: 21.52%

Both these stocks have a record high number of shares on loan that have to get bought back and returned at some point.

Short sellers have their foot on a bouncy betty.

These stocks will squeeze whether shorts get out at their current share prices, lower, or even higher.

Because AMC and GME’s shares on loan are at an all-time high, this also means that when they do skyrocket, share prices will surpass their last record highs.

This is why people around the globe are buying these stocks.

The upside potential is too large to pass on.

When will these two stocks squeeze?

No one can say for sure.

But this bear market could prove to be a great time for shorts to close their positions, at least while stocks are at temporary low.

Do The ‘Apes’ Really Own AMC Entertainment?

do the apes really own AMC Entertainment?
AMC Apes – do these retail investors really own AMC Entertainment?

Like any company, if you own AMC Entertainment stock then you basically own the company.

Shareholders are essentially what fund company projects, ideas, and help drive innovation.

Especially in AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc.

AMC is a special case though because without its shareholders the company would have never survived.

Even today, AMC Entertainment would sink without its shareholders.

So, how much power do the apes have over the largest movie theatre chain in the world?

Let’s discuss it.

How much control do the apes have over AMC Entertainment?

Do apes really own AMC Entertainment?

Earlier this year, CEO and President Adam Aron announced during 2021’s Q4 earnings call that 90% of AMC’s float was now owned by retail investors.

Last year 70%-80% of the float was owned by apes.

This is a massive amount of people who have control of AMC’s share price today.

Think about it, a massive selloff all at once could destroy the company.

Which kinda gets you thinking…

Is this why Adam Aron has not been as vocal about short selling as GameStop’s Ryan Cohen has been?

I’ll leave that up to you to answer.

But regardless the situation, the ape community really does own AMC Entertainment.

Last year Adam Aron proposed a 500 million share dilution, to which the apes voted against.

The proposal was scratched, and apes won.

AMC apes also urged the CEO to implement cryptocurrency and NFTs into the business.

Both of which came true and were a big success for the company.

Mainstream media has portrayed this negatively

No surprise there.

AMC is not in debt to the apes, but there’s a mutual respect where communication has been key between the two.

Retail investors have pitched several ideas to the CEO in efforts to raise more capital and bring alternative income streams to life.

This is the first time in history where the CEO of a public company has communicated with shareholders via social media – the way Adam Aron and the apes have.

The ape culture has broken down barriers in the finance and stock market world.

While retail investors have been making a ruckus about market injustices, they’ve waited on the CEO to back them up but have yet to receive that full support.

Adam Aron mocked short sellers for the second time back in February of this year.

But that’s as much as the CEO has gotten to discussing overleveraged short sellers and market manipulation of his stock.

Though he did briefly mention shorting on live television before, the ape community is hoping for more activism.

Recent criticizing from apes

Do apes really own AMC Entertainment
Do Apes Really Own AMC Entertainment?

Some apes have recently criticized Adam Aron for not focusing enough on bringing light to market injustices.

AMC investors for the most part are all in and have seen their investments drop significantly due to overleveraged shorting in the market.

Retail investors feel the CEO of the company should find solutions that will allow shareholders to be profitable – given that they are a huge lifeline for the company.

Other apes in the community argue that the CEO is entitled to fundamentally running the company only.

Which also makes sense – but this is a community and I believe Adam Aron should also take your concerns seriously.

Apes truly do own AMC Entertainment.

And any differences should be discussed civilly.

There’s never been a community like this before, so it’s important to stick together.

Will ApeCoin continue to go up in value?
You can now buy ApeCoin with Coinbase – Will ApeCoin keep going up?

Should you get in on ApeCoin or stay the hell away from it!?

ApeCoin was made available to retail investors on Wednesday, March 16th.

The cryptocurrency comes from a partnership between The Bored Ape Yacht Club and a decentralized company, ApeCoin DAO.

The new cryptocurrency has gained the attention of the retail community primarily invested in NFTs and crypto.

But stocks, crypto, NFTs, that’s what the new generation is all about.

ApeCoin started at $1 per token and is currently trading over $14!

Will the cryptocurrency continue to go up in value?

Let’s talk about it.

What is ApeCoin?

ApeCoin is a cryptocurrency deriving from the Ethereum blockchain launched by the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).

If you don’t know who BAYC is chances are you might have seen their popular NFTs online at some point.

They depict creative and stylish bored apes that sell tremendously high on the market!

Below is a gallery of their work.

Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTS

The company Yuga Labs is the creator of both the Bored Ape Yacht Club and now ApeCoin.

ApeCoin is owned and operated by the ApeCoin DAO, a decentralized organization where each token holder gets to vote on governance and use of the Ecosystem Fund.

What is the purpose of ApeCoin?

ApeCoin ($APE) is a token for culture, gaming, and commerce used to empower a decentralized community building at the forefront of web3.

The cryptocurrency is essentially creating a token for members of its community to further enrich its NFT culture.

Will Yuga Labs’ new cryptocurrency have the same ‘status’ as Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs do?

It’s certainly possible, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comment section at the end of the article.

The project is looking to create value within the blockchain culture, which has many possibilities that are still to this date unknown.

Just like when the internet was new, this new culture of blockchain technology is going to change the world.

Crypto, NFTs, and everything that we currently know in the space is just the beginning.

Where can you buy ApeCoin?

Buy ApeCoin with Coinbase

You can buy ApeCoin through a crypto exchange such as:

  • Coinbase
  • Gemini
  • CoinMarketCap
  • Binance
  • Kraken
  • FTX

Something curious happened when the new cryptocurrency launched, it was available on every major crypto exchange.

The crypto is still fairly new and I anticipate as it continues to gain more attention, more retail investors will take a position.

How many ApeCoin tokens are in circulation?

ApeCoin circulation - ApeCoin supply
Will ApeCoin keep going up?

ApeCoin has a total max supply of 1 billion tokens and 277.5 million are currently in circulation, which equivalates to only 28% of the total supply.

ApeCoin’s total max supply is less than Cardano (ADA, 45b), Ripple (XRP, 100b), and Algorand (ALGO, 10b).

While the new cryptocurrencies circulating supply is relatively low compared to its max supply, investors must be aware that developers may increase the circulating supply at any moment.

Increasing the supply (like any other cryptocurrency) would lower the price of ApeCoin.

The cryptocurrency is still a highly speculative play and investors should always due extensive research to identify and estimate whether the cryptocurrency will continue to go up in value.

Interesting facts about ApeCoin

Will Ape Coin go up

The creators of ApeCoin distributed the cryptocurrency for free to every Bored Ape Yacht Club holder.

For each Bored Ape you own, you’re entitled to 10,094 $APE.

That’s equivalent to $150,000 today.

So far, around 110 million APE tokens have been claimed by NFT holders.

Yuga Labs is getting 150 million APE, 10 million of which (“or equal value”) will go to the Jane Goodall Legacy Foundation.

140 million $APE will go to the companies and people that helped initiate the project.

The 80 million $APE going to its founders of Yuga Labs will be locked for the first 12 months so holders cannot cash out and tank the price.

So, is APE worth buying and holding for a year?

Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

How is ApeCoin being used?

Benji Bananas
Will Ape Coin go up

A mobile game called Benji Bananas, developed by Animoca Brands (whose co-founder, Yat Siu, is on the board of the Ape Foundation), is adopting ApeCoin as a kind of in-game currency. 

For 25 ApeCoins, you can buy a Benji Bananas Membership Pass, which lets you earn “special tokens” in-game.

Those tokens can then be swapped for actual ApeCoins.

So far, this is the only utility of APE as it’s relatively new.

ApeCoin is part of the Bored Ape Yacht Club’s ecosystem and I expect a lot more utility will be offered in the future as we enter the metaverse and blockchain technology becomes more familiar.

What we do know is that APE will be used to access merchandise, events, and services later on.

How much is $APE worth?

At the time of this article, ApeCoin is currently trading in the market for $23.85.

Its current market cap is $7.1B with a typical hold time of 25 days according to Coinbase.

An improvement from earlier this March as seen below.

APE Market Stats – Will Ape Coin go up?

If retail investors decide to go long on APE then we can expect the typical hold time to increase.

ApeCoin is up more than 2,300% since its inception and has gained a lot of popularity across multiple crypto exchanges.

The $12-$13 price range seemed to be a foundation for APE although the cryptocurrency has begun to set new ATHs.

Granted, it’s only been two months, but I’d love to know your thoughts on how high this crypto asset can go.
