CALPERS Increases AMC Stake, Sells Netflix Shares

Largest pension in America (CALPERS) buys more AMC stock
Market News: Largest pension in America (CALPERS) buys more AMC stock

CALPERS, the largest pension in America increased its AMC stake this first quarter again.

Last year the institution loaded up on AMC and GameStop.

During this time, the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CALPERS) had sold an 11% stake in Palantir (PLTR).

CALPERS purchased an additional 155,992 shares by the end of Q1 this year, totaling the number of AMC shares owned to 775,392 shares.

It sold an extreme amount of Netflix (NFLX).

Let’s discuss it.

Largest pension in America sells 605,501 shares of Netflix (NFLX)

CALPERS sold a whopping 605,501 shares of Netflix stock (NFLX).

It ended the first quarter with a total of 1.2 million shares in the streaming platform giant.

Netflix stock is down almost 69% this year-to-date.

It dropped 38% the first quarter of 2022 alone.

Netflix received backlash in April after announcing the company plans to advertise on the platform with commercials.

Viewers argued that the company had already built too strong of a foundation to make such a change to its business model and that going that route would hurt its memberships.

Things did not get better after Netflix announced the crackdown of password sharing.

Netflix lost 200,000 customers in the first quarter of 2022.

Now America’s largest pension fund is dumping its Netflix stock and buying AMC Entertainment stock instead.

CALPERS keeps buying and holding AMC stock

CALPERS increased their stake in AMC and GameStop throughout the 2021.

AMC and GameStop were two of the highest profile stocks in the market for 2021.

AMC saw gains upwards of +3,000% while GameStop saw gains half of AMC’s.

This year, AMC and GameStop continue to be high profile stocks as their short interest continues to be extremely high, sitting above 21% each.

AMC had a powerful Q1 earnings report this year leaving Wall Street analysts and reporters humiliated.

Last year CALPERS quadrupled their stake in AMC during the 4th quarter where they accumulated a total of 619,400 shares of the largest movie theatre chain in the world.

The pension fund now owns a total of 775,392 shares according to Barrons.

Analysts and corporate media reporters have been saying for over a year now the movie theatre industry was dead due to the rise of online streaming.

While the narrative might support a short sellers view, it’s definitely far from the truth.

People aren’t willing to let go of the movie theatre experience for the convenience of online streaming; lockdowns are over.

There is a massive demand for AMC stock

AMC stock is not done running.

The ‘ape’ community that saved the movie theatre from bankruptcy saw something no one else saw.

AMC has always had a massive short squeeze potential that has yet to be fulfilled.

Mainstream media might have spun the narrative killing the hopes and dreams of newcomers of the possibility some time ago.

But AMC’s short interest data says a third runup will be larger than what the world witnessed in May/June of last year when the stock ran up to $72 per share.

Institutions know hedge funds are overleveraged and the closing of short positions is inevitable.

Buying the stock now as the markets are at an all-time low could bear fruit very soon.

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.

Are Institutions Preparing to Close Short Positions in AMC?

How soon will institutions close short positions in AMC stock?

Retail investors have been waiting for big institutions to close their short positions in AMC for over a year now.

Many short positions in AMC Entertainment stock still remained open after January’s and May’s runup last year.

This year’s bear market has dropped stock prices back to all-time lows.

Will this provide institutions with incentive to close short positions in AMC now?

Let’s discuss it below.

AMC drops to all-time lows again

Are institutions preparing to close short positions in AMC stock?
Are institutions preparing to close short positions in AMC stock?

The entire market is on a free-fall.

AMC Entertainment stock managed to fall below $13 on Monday despite heavy buying volume.

The off-exchange trading for AMC is currently around 62.26% according to Fintel, and shorts have borrowed an additional 1M shares to short the stock according to Stonk-O-Tracker.

These predatorial strategies have retail investors pinned and losing money on their investment.

The economy’s health isn’t helping much either, but further fueling the market’s stress.

Interest rates are rising, inflation is at an all-time high, and the U.S is battling several issues outside the country with Russia and Ukraine, and at home.

Today’s economy has the entire market beat.

And AMC Entertainment is no exception the free-fall despite the company’s continuous progress.

AMC has become a trading ground

Traders and institutions are trading AMC at all times.

At some point, positions will have to get closed.

DTCC B16845-22 raised margin requirements by 25% for stock trading above $10 per share.

If AMC stock drops below $10 per share, then margin requirements will be raised to 30%.

This is rather significant because it requires institutions shorting AMC stock to carry more collateral.

Unfortunately for the rest of the market, institutions will continue to create massive selloffs just to keep up with these margin requirements.

But it gets worse for them because the lower AMC drops, the more collateral will be required of them.

Financial institutions are being stretched beyond their means and it’s not going to end well for them.

We’ve already seen hedge funds fall – and we can expect this trend to continue.

Could institutions be preparing to close short positions?

Institutions will eventually begin to hedge on the upside (long).

For this to happen, they will need to identify the market’s bottom.

Economists believe there is still quite aways to go before the market begins bottoming out.

Others such as Forbes believes the stock market is finishing this crater of a selloff.

With this in mind, institutions always strategize when it comes to market conditions.

It is very possible AMC short sellers could begin to close their positions as the markets begin to bottom out.

When this will occur is unknown.

No one has been able to perfectly time the market; however, there are always signals in the market that allow investors to foresee specific trends.

A reversal is imminent

Despite where the bottom lies, investors holding AMC stock should know that a reversal is imminent.

A reversal is a change in the price of an asset which can occur to the upside or downside – depending on a securities’ current trendline.

For AMC, a reversal would push the stock up.

Not only is a reversal imminent for AMC stock, but for the entire market as well.

Stocks can’t keep going down forever, at some point they must go up again.

I have a feeling this is going to be one of the biggest reversals in history.

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.
