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.

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 & 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

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 7/4 is: 20.20% via. Stonk-O-Tracker, this is different from the short interest of 18%.

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.

Breaking: Hedge Fund Melvin Capital Is Shutting Down in June

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 $13.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $13, resulting in even bigger losses.

Ladies and gentlemen, shorts could have closed at $5 last year.

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.

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?

How to Get Professional Help with Finance Homework on Stock Price Analysis

Stock Price Analysis
Stock Price Analysis

Published by FrankNez Team.

Most people are intimidated to begin the stock price analysis process because of the tremendous amount of material one needs to learn.

Some people think that it is essential to have a degree in finance to complete this type of assignment.

Stock price analysis can be a daunting task for students who are just getting started in business courses, but there is a great way to get help with finance homework on stock price analysis.

AssignmentShark is an excellent solution to do my finance homework, and I always recommend this service to get professional finance assistance.

What Is a Stock Price Analysis?

Stock Price Analysis meaning

A stock price analysis refers to the analysis of the stock price performance by the use of different financial instruments.

The main goal of a stock price analysis is to analyze whether a company’s stock price is moving in the same direction as the financial management of the company.

A financial manager who takes control of a company may work on increasing the value of the company by carefully managing its financial resources.

Stock price analysis is studying data that a publicly traded company produces.

It is the study of selected financial and economic data, which can be presented on a stock exchange to determine the price at which a company’s stock can be bought and sold by the public.

This is the process of analyzing what the market value should be forgiven for stocks.

This is not just a one-time activity. It is an ongoing activity that involves reviewing price changes concerning past trends in order to make short-term decisions.

This can include determining when to invest in a particular stock and when to sell it.

Why Stock Price Analysis Can Be Challenging

Stock price analysis is defined as the process of forecasting future stock prices by analyzing the relation between supply and demand.

It can be extremely challenging because factors such as investor psychology, fundamental and technical analysis, and the impact of news events can significantly affect it in several ways that cannot be foreseen.

Financial markets are highly volatile, and their behavior is often unstable. The instability of their behavior is such that you can’t predict what will happen next.

There are many reasons for this, but one is the complexity of financial instruments used in speculation and trading.

You may have many questions about why stock price analysis is so complex.

Partly it is because financial markets are highly volatile, and their behavior is often unstable.

The instability of their behavior is such that you can’t predict what will happen next.

There are many reasons for this, but one is the complexity of financial instruments used in speculation and trading.

Contrary to widespread opinion, stock price analysis isn’t an easy job, even for experienced traders.

Designing a successful strategy based on stock price analysis requires a lot of knowledge and a significant amount of time.

It’s more than simply analyzing market data, drawing a chart, and predicting its future state.

In fact, it’s much more complex than that. Many students think that the only thing that matters in stock price analysis is buying low and selling high at the right time. But that isn’t true. It’s also essential to develop an understanding of why the stock behaves the way it does so that you know how to use it in your strategy in the future.

Professional Help

Stock price analysis is a subject that could be quite challenging to many students and people who are not used to this type of analysis.

The first thing we should ask ourselves is the significance of stock price analysis.

Many people will say that it all comes down to money, and the truth is that it does.

The reasons why we should get the help of professional writers when working on stock price analysis are twofold.

Analysis of market trends, movement of stocks, and other similar factors are often too complex to analyze without any experience in this field.

Expert writers are often asked to assist students who need to complete their finance homework on stock price analysis.

It’s nothing wrong with getting professional help.

Investing in Commodities: An Easy Introduction

Investing in Commodities
Everything you need to know about investing in commodities

Published by FrankNez Team.

Commodities trading goes back further in history than trading stocks and bonds.

Commodities are simply goods that can be exchanged for money or other goods.

In other words, they are the heart of the market – the stuff that gets bought and sold.

The commodities market runs on the basic principle of supply and demand.

Since prices of a given type of commodity fluctuate in response to market forces – including anything from natural disasters to the COVID-19 pandemic – commodities can be a riskier investment option than stocks unless you have enough expertise and resources, making it a historically more prohibitive investment option for individuals.

Keep reading to learn more about investing in commodities and your options for getting started.

Commodities Trading Basics

Commodity Market
Commodity Market – what is commodities trading?

What is commodities trading?

Commodities trading refers to the practice of buying and selling goods at agreed upon prices.

A commodities exchange may refer to the exchange of the goods themselves, or to regulatory bodies that facilitate commodities exchanges through the enforcement of contractual and legal rules, such as:

Who engages in commodities investment?

Historically, commodities trading has been reserved for commercial or institutional producers or consumers.

Think farm owners selling crops or airlines buying jet fuel.

Other commercial or institutional investors may not be involved in the direct production or consumption of goods but look to investment in commodities as a way to diversify their portfolios or hedge against the volatility of other investments, such as stocks.

In fact, because commodities and stocks tend to have an inverse relationship, many investors will put money in commodities like gold during bear markets, periods of high stock market volatility, or times of high inflation.

Finally, individual investors can also profit on commodities through speculation.

Because speculating on commodity prices requires a high level of expertise across many fields – including macroeconomics, microeconomics, and the specifics of a given industry and commodity – this can be an expensive and risky investment option for individuals.

What are the risks of commodities investment?

It’s important to note that commodities investment comes in many forms with different levels of risk.

By far the riskiest options for individual investors are direct investment and futures contracts, which will be explained later in this article.

However, all commodities trading is subject to the effects of market forces on supply and demand, and thus the effects of supply and demand on commodity prices.

One major risk of direct commodities trading is that small price fluctuations can amplify your gains or losses exponentially, meaning that you could gain significantly more than you invested – but you can also lose much more too.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission – a regulatory body that registers commodities trading professionals, among other things – warns that “many individuals lose all of their money” in futures markets.

Types of Commodities

different types of commodities
Different types of commodities

Commodities are divided into the following four categories:

1. Metals

Metals include gold, copper, palladium, etc.

As mentioned, gold and silver are popular investments for those hedging against losses due to stock market volatility.

According to the CFTC, metals are typically most impacted by industrial and macroeconomic factors.

2. Energy

This category includes a broad range of natural resources, including natural gas.

Risk factors usually relate to supply and storage availability, or actions made by regulatory bodies like the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

3. Livestock and Meat & 4. Agriculture

Both livestock/meat and agriculture are typically affected by weather patterns, but can also be affected by natural disasters, epidemics and pandemics (human and animal), or other global supply chain issues.

Options for Investing in Commodities

Futures Contracts

A futures contract is a contract in which one party agrees to purchase and receive a given commodity at a certain price and at a certain time.

For example, a developer might agree to buy lumber at a certain price for a certain number of months.

If the market price falls below the contract price before the contract is up, the developer will lose money.

But if prices rise beyond the agreed upon price, the developer is locked into the better deal.

Futures trading – or the buying and selling of futures contracts – is the most common way to directly invest in commodities.

It’s also expensive and can be risky.

As mentioned, it is typically reserved for commercial or institutional investors who need to be sure they can buy the goods necessary for the operation of their businesses at prices that are protected from volatility in the market.

Otherwise, futures trading is done by large organizations or individuals to profit on price fluctuations or hedge against other investments.

Futures trading usually requires a brokerage account (which will charge brokerage fees), as well as deposits for the commodity investments themselves.

Sometimes investors even receive a “margin call” from their broker requiring them to deposit more money than what they initially paid.

With some exceptions, commodity futures and options must be traded through an exchange by professionals or firms who are registered with the CFTC.

As you can see, futures trading can be prohibitive to individual investors and should be approached with caution.

Stocks

Stocks can be an alternative option for investing in commodities.

With this strategy, an investor buys stocks in a company that deals with the commodity they’re interested in.

However, this is fundamentally different from investing directly in the commodity.

With futures contracts, an investor is directly purchasing ownership of the commodities themselves, while with stocks an investor is simply buying a share of an entity that deals with the commodity.

As Investopedia points out, stocks are affected by different factors than commodity prices, including internal company factors that have nothing to do with the macroeconomic factors impacting the commodities in question.

ENTs, ETPs, ETFs and Mutual Funds

Like stocks, ENTs, ETPs, ETFs and mutual funds can be less volatile investment options than direct commodities trading.

These options come with risks similar to those of stocks, but also similar advantages: good money management (if you’re using a broker), diversification opportunities, and the ability to make a profit on commodities without losing lots of money on speculation.

Commodity Pooling

Sometimes, a group of investors will pool their investment and go in on a futures contract together.

This type of arrangement is typically facilitated by a professional commodity pool operator (CPO), who will hire a commodities trading adviser (CTA) registered by the CFTC.

Pooling resources can offer the advantage of lower upfront investments from all parties, and the CTA helps make money management easier.

What to Consider Before Investing in Commodities

The CFTC suggests that investors consider the following before investing in commodities:

  • Your financial experience, goals and financial resources
  • How much you can afford to lose (beyond your initial investment)
  • All of the obligations of your contract(s)
  • The risk disclosure documents the broker is required to provide
  • Whom to contact with problems or questions

As with any prospective investment, do your research carefully and thoroughly before making any purchase, and take a look at some of the resources available from the CFTC.

How to Read Stonk-O-Tracker For Beginners

how to read stonk-o-tracker for beginners

I want to guide new retail investors in every way I can. I’ve received questions regarding what the information on Stonk-O-Tracker means.

I’m going to break down what all the data is presenting.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.

Lets get started!

Stonk-O-Tracker AMC

Stonk o'Tracker AMC

The information at the very beginning of Stonk-O-Tracker is pretty self-explanatory starting out with NYSE.

This is the price closed from the New York Stock Exchange.

This is the stock’s price.

SSR stands for short sale restriction.

The SSR prevents from short sellers from continuously shorting a stock.

The SSR shows the price in which this regulation was triggered.

When SSR triggers it’s usually due to an insane amount of shorting driving the share price of a stock down.

The SSR protects retail investors and activates once a stocks share price falls below 10% from the previous trading day.

FRA is the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

The FRA is German’s largest stock exchange.

The price here is translated in euro.

Stonk o’tracker

What are call options in stocks?

People in on AMC stock either buy the stock or buy call options. Call options are contracts that you can bet on to execute by a specific date.

What makes these contracts attractive is that premiums are cheaper to purchase as they’re usually sold in ‘bundles’.

Investors who buy call options are usually speculating the price of a stock will be significantly higher in the future.

Calls ITM expiring: This is the number of calls expiring on the specific date detailed.

If an investor placed a strike price of $49 dollars by the end of Friday and Friday’s price action is $55 then that call option expires in the money, otherwise known as ITM.

Calls ITM expiring on Stonk-O-Tracker is the number of these contracts expiring on the date detailed.

Calls ITM: Calls ITM refers to the number of call options expiring at a specific dollar amount.

In the reference above it details 21,823 calls are expiring in the money at $50.

Borrowed Shares Available

Borrowed shares available stonk-o-tracker
Borrowed shares available Stonk-O-Tracker – Stonk o’tracker AMC

The borrowed shares refer to the number of shares short sellers have available to short a stock.

This number decreases when a stock is being shorted, or the price is being driven down.

Short sellers can continue to borrow more shares even after they’ve used some or all. However, this comes at a price.

Shorts must pay the fee detailed in the chart.

ETF available Stonk-O-Tracker

An ETF is known as an exchange trade fund. Like an index fund, these types of stocks pool a variety of stock in a bundle.

AMC Entertainment stock is pooled a few ETFs that short sellers can also short.

The ETF available is the number of ETFs hedgies can short.

Option data: Calls vs puts

what does option data mean on stonk-o-tracker
Stonk-O-Tracker Option Data: Calls vs puts – stonk o’tracker AMC –

The option data chart shows a stocks call vs puts. I went over what calls were above.

Puts are the exact opposite. Puts bet on the stock going down instead of up. When puts are executed, the stock is further laddered down.

This chart shows you how many options are in the money and out of the money.

Out of the money are simply contracts made that have yet to be anywhere near the current price range of a stock.

Trading data Stonk-O-Tracker

AMC dark pools
Trading data – AMC dark pools – AMC stonk o tracker – stonk o’ tracker AMC

The short percentage in the trading data is simply the percentage of the volume that is being shorted.

The dark pool percentage shows the percentage of trading that’s done behind closed doors.

This unknown platform is known as dark pools.

This is where short sellers can get away with additional shorting tactics.

The SEC must look into this as it’s a manipulative way to further short a stock. In this case, AMC and other meme stocks.

Fails-to-Deliver

Fail to deliver AMC stock
Fails to deliver AMC – AMC stonk o tracker – stonk o’tracker AMC –

Fails-to-deliver are contracts that did not execute in the pocket.

These are reported by the SEC (securities exchange commission) and are updated once they release that information.

This chart details how many contracts failed to execute and at what closing price they failed.

The SSR trigger info at the very bottom of Stonk-O-Tracker simply reveals the close price at which it stopped going into effect as well as the price SSR was triggered.

Become An Investor by Renting Your Property: Things to Consider

Renting your property
Become an investor by renting your property: Things to consider

Published by FrankNez team

Real estate investment, which includes direct rental income, is not a laid-back venture where you hope to put your house up for tenancy and passively collect rent after.

However, direct property rental has its advantages as a long-term investment that promises better returns (ROI) while the income helps to pay down the mortgage. 

Benefits include value appreciation as you pay down the mortgage increasing your equity in the property, while the rental income, with the price set above the monthly maintenance expenses, guarantees a positive cash flow.

Here are critical things to consider as you invest in rental property.

Undertake a financial analysis and create a plan

Evernest

Assessing your financial strength against the proposed investment in property rentals is the first item to consider.

If acquiring the property on a mortgage, consider your ability to pay the lender during unexpected vacancies as lack of foresight could throw your finances into a spin.

Consider access to affordable property financing and set both your short-term and long-term goals with this in mind to avoid disappointments. 

You may engage professionals like Evernest, Rhome, Apex Ventures, etc., who are known for managing residential properties in Nashville to create a viable investment plan that matches your needs.

Your real estate investment plan should start with goals that define expectations and the time frame within which to achieve them.

Next, consider your investment strategy vis-à-vis the type of investment property you want to pursue and the real estate market dynamics in play against your overall financial plan.

Location is everything in real estate investment

Renting property – Location is everything – Things to consider when renting your property

Location is king in any type of real estate investment and determines the extent of your success or the lack of it.

Before venturing into property acquisition, scout around to assess and identify profitable locations according to current market trends.

Some locations may have great properties but with poor neighborhood reputation that turns away potential quality tenants and depressing rental prices.

The key markers for prime locations are infrastructure expansion, job, and population growth that indicate a vibrant market with high demand for housing.

Towns with big corporations generate a healthy economy that attracts people seeking job opportunities and eventually good living quarters.

Look out for locations with heavy commercial activities likely to spur economic growth and the corresponding surge in population that indicate potential demand for housing.

Finding the perfect property

After assessing your financial ability, creating a viable rental property investment plan, and identifying a prime location, it is time to home into the perfect property.

However, first, you need to decide what type of rental you want to invest in before buying to ensure you achieve your goals.

You could be looking for a single-family or multi-family home for the traditional rental, or you could be considering an investment in Airbnb, in which case a beach house or condo would be perfect.

Whatever your preference, carry out an investment property analysis to be sure you got the right unit for your rental property investment plan.

As much as your budget will determine the type of property you want to buy, try to pick one that promises the highest ROI with sustainability potential in the market.

Always go back to your calculations to ensure you achieve a positive cash flow to stay afloat.

Manage your rental property professionally

To succeed as a rental property investor, you need to address three key aspects of responsibility.

You must be adept at managing tenants, the property, and finances to keep your investment running profitably.

Managing tenants starts with good communication, listening to their complaints, addressing the issues raised promptly, and a follow-up to ensure they are happy with your attention.

You are under a legal obligation to keep your property safe and in a habitable condition at all times during tenancy.

Practice regular maintenance on the property and avoid reactive response in emergencies as this inconvenience your tenants.

Finally, set your rent price right to fit in with your financial plans, enforce timely rent collection, and minimize maintenance costs to sustain a positive cash flow on your investment.

Join a real estate network

Renting Property – Join a real estate network

A first-time property rental investor needs all the support and mentorship to succeed in the real estate business.

Joining a real estate network provides a ready platform for interaction with experienced realtors and an opportunity to learn the ropes firsthand.

Within the network are various professionals that drive the real estate sector and who can assist a beginner in accessing solutions for their first rental venture.

A real estate network usually has mentors, lawyers, accountants, agents, and home inspectors.

All these professionals carry vast experiences in property management that can benefit a budding investor entering the market for the first time, especially in handling tricky issues that involve taxes, inspection, and legal obligations.

Be smart and join a community of similar interests with a better experience to avoid launching your real estate investment blindly.

How to Invest in Stocks Step-by-Step for Beginners


How To Invest In Bitcoin Cryptocurrency For Beginners

How To Invest In Bitcoin Crypto
How to invest in Bitcoin

Bitcoin has revolutionized the way we think about money and how we invest it. Kevin O’ Leary himself thinks Bitcoin will beat the S&P500, which earns on average 7-10% annually by an additional 4%.

I frequently get asked what I think about Bitcoin. In all honesty this could be a great place to park some of your money for the remaining of the decade. And I’ll explain why later but first lets go over how to invest in Bitcoin.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.

Lets get started!

Is Bitcoin the future?

Let’s face it, anything digital is the future.

The way I look at Bitcoin is that it is gold in digital form.

Why?

Because there’s a limited amount of it and there’s a huge demand for it.

I don’t necessarily view Bitcoin as a means of currency to be used for transacting in the markets.

Bitcoin to me is a means of multiplying your money like any other investment.

The difference with Bitcoin however is that nothing has quite grown like it.

This is what makes this investment, or trade so attractive.

Will Bitcoin go back up?

BTC is showing major signs of a recovery.

Investors should not worry about the selloffs that recently took place.

Hedge funds and other institutions shorting companies at the moment are in hot waters and are in desperate need of capital.

View this market dip as an opportunity to buy at a discount.

The crypto market is undergoing a correction and will reach new levels growth with each passing day.

BTC is recovering quite well.

All the markets are volatile at the moment, long-term investing takes time.

Where can I buy Bitcoin?

Alright community, this is why you’re here.

Before you begin your very first investment in BTC you’ll need to open a brokerage account with a cryptocurrency investment platform.

I personally use Coinbase.

how to buy bitcoin
How to buy Bitcoin

Coinbase allows me to buy Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at ease straight from my laptop or from my phone.

When you purchase Bitcoin with Coinbase, you’ll be able to see the stats and charts wherever you go.

In fact, Coinbase makes it easy to purchase BTC and other crypto.

Before, you would have to transfer money through an ACH transfer which would take days.

Now, you can easily connect your bank account and make purchases instantly.

This convenience makes Coinbase one of the best platforms to use for crypto trading.

Aside from this, the layout is extremely easy to navigate.

Some of the most popular banks you can link to immediately include:

  • Chase
  • Wells Fargo
  • TD Bank
  • Bank of America
  • and PNC Bank

Online banking payments are secured and you also have the option to choose from 1,000 other banks if you don’t use the most common ones.

Other popular banks include Ally, Capital One, U.S. Bank, and BMO Harris just to name a few.

This list is huge which means it should be no problem finding your personal bank to start now.

Begin by creating your account first

Creating your account with Coinbase is very self explanatory.

Follow the steps and input all of your information to get started.

This part of the process is as simple as opening a bank account for example.

If you have a brokerage account for stocks, then you’ll find it’s almost an identical process.

how to buy bitcoin

Congratulations!

You’ve now created your account to buy Bitcoin.

Purchasing it is just as simple if not easier than creating your account.

All you simply have to do is navigate your cursor to the top of the web page where it details ‘Buy/Sell‘.

how to buy crypto
How to buy crypto

Here you’ll be able to input the amount of money you will be investing in for Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency using the drop down menu.

It’s that simple.

Can you buy a fraction of Bitcoin?

Absolutely! You can put $100 or $10,000 into BTC and your purchase will execute in the form of fractions.

Your investment will then go up as the market value for BTC continues to surge.

Unlike most stock market brokerage accounts, you can buy fractions of all type of crypto with Coinbase.

This is extremely convenient for the average retail investor.

When you buy Bitcoin you’re going to see the balance available in the form of decimal fractions.

My very first investment in BTC was $100; this translated to 0.00174 BTC.

Your fraction count will increase as you buy more of that investment.

Is it too late to buy Bitcoin?

Contrary to what most novice investors might believe, it is not too late to buy BTC crypto.

Yes BTC was once a few bucks but just because it’s worth what it is today does not mean it’s too late to invest in it.

Trajectories show BTC is well on its way to new records.

And although there has been a huge market selloff earlier this year, Bitcoin is moving up again.

You can now buy more fractions of a Bitcoin today than you could prior to this liquidation.

And I’m personally taking advantage of it.

How high can Bitcoin go?

Experts and analysts believe BTC will continue to surge well into the 100k range during this decade.

Andrei Jikh even believes BTC could reach $500,000.

Can BTC reach $500,000?

I don’t doubt BTC will continue to surge and reach well beyond 6-figures.

With this dip in the market, now is the perfect time to buy at discount.

Don’t ask me how much you should invest in Bitcoin though.

This will vary from investor to investor.

All I know is that the opportunity to multiply your money with crypto is there.

If you’ve made profit from Doge, I would allocate these gains into BTC in case you’re thinking of investing in this crypto.

Remember, unlike Doge which is inflationary, BTC is deflationary.

Meaning it has no ceiling as to how high it can go.

But that’s not all.

Chamath, who predicted Bitcoin’s current price point since inception, is confident this cryptocurrency will continue surging well above $100k.

Chamath was an early investor of Bitcoin and Facebook.

This venture capitalist predicted Bitcoin would be worth well over $10k when the price was only a few dollars.

Can I buy other cryptocurrencies with Coinbase?

Yes, you can buy a variety of cryptocurrencies with Coinbase.

Other popular cryptocurrencies include:

  1. Ethereum
  2. Tether
  3. Binance Coin
  4. Terra
  5. Cardano
  6. Solana
  7. Dogecoin
  8. Shiba Inu Coin

When investing long-term in crypto, it is best to strategize your success by diversifying in a few cryptocurrencies first.

Does Bitcoin have real-world value?

Yes, Bitcoin makes it possible to transact money online securely using blockchain technology.

Bitcoin was the first level of blockchain technology, Ethereum the second, and Cardano the third.

Here’s a more through explanation on how Bitcoin works.

How does Bitcoin work?

Most investors are buying Bitcoin as an asset though.

The value of Bitcoin is projected to get relatively high.

Your investment today has a high probability of doubling if not quadrupling this decade.

At least that’s what bulls believe.

But see, cryptocurrency doesn’t seem like it’s leaving.

It’s here to stay and many people are getting in on the crypto asset before it truly is too late.

And lastly…

These Powerful Cryptocurrencies Have Crazy Predictions

Cryptocurrencies List Price Predictions
Cryptocurrencies With High Price Predictions

If you’re new to the crypto world, I’m going to provide you with a list of cryptocurrencies to watch.

Cryptocurrency has earned early investors millions and even billions of dollars in ROI.

You might be thinking, is it too late to buy crypto? The short answer is absolutely not.

And if you’re not invested in crypto yet, I’m going to leave a link at the end of this article of my step by step guide on how to buy cryptocurrencies.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – if you’re part of the Patreon you’ve seen when I add a cryptocurrency to my crypto portfolio. Today I want to talk cryptocurrencies and why these powerful assets will keep on surging.

Let’s get started!

Now, a lot of you might be familiar with Dogecoin, Bitcoin, and Ethereum.

These are some of the most popular cryptocurrencies out there.

Just recently Shiba Inu Coin began trending as well.

These so called ‘speculative’ plays have earned investors gains unlike anything else in the markets.

These are only some powerful crypto plays that are nowhere near done growing primarily because of their communities!

#1. Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum Cryptocurrencies
cryptocurrency list – Ethereum prediction – cryptocurrencies futures

Shark Tank star and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban just said, “as an investment, I think Ethereum has the most upside.”

And he’s not the only one who speculates ETH is in it’s infant stage either.

But before I continue, this article won’t be about the technical side of the cryptocurrencies themselves but rather a worldview of the crypto’s upside as an investment.

How high are analysts predicting Ethereum to go?

In a recent Forbes article, a panel of crypto experts including Sagi Bakshi and Lex Sokolin predict that ETH could rise as high as $19,842 by 2025 and that by the end of 2022 it could be the most widely transacted cryptocurrency due to its expanding utility in the marketplace”, via Crunchbase.

At the publication date of this article, ETH cryptocurrency is trading close to $3.1k.

Joe McCann, an angel investor and crypto margin trader believes the Ethereum could even reach as high as $50,000.

Ethereum developer and supporter, Anthony Sassano believes ETH can go even higher. Giving it a $150,000 prediction by 2023.

Community, this is insane. In a very very good way.

If we’ve learned anything from AMC and GameStop, it’s that investor sentiment is what drives the markets.

And the crypto community is one of the most bullish investing communities out there.

#2. Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin crypto list - cryptocurrency list
Crypto List – Bitcoin price prediction – cryptocurrencies futures

Bitcoin is probably one of the most if not the most popular cryptocurrencies in the crypto space.

This revolutionary crypto broke the perception of what people ever imagined could become a reality.

To think BTC traded only a few cents during its inception to now trading over $43.8K is astonishing to say the least.

If you’re on the Patreon, you know I bought the dip a few times when Bitcoin was trading around $32k-$38k back in June and July.

Most analysts see Bitcoin reaching $100k per BTC.

In a Forbes panel, the average came to $107K with 1/3 saying Bitcoin will reach more than $120,000.

Capital.com analyst, Mikhail Karkhalev predicts Bitcoin will reach $170,000 by the end of 2022 or early 2023.

CNBC asked Chamath, an early Facebook investor and venture capitalist, how high he thinks Bitcoin will continue to soar earlier this year.

Listen to Chamath’s response below.

Chamath Bitcoin Price Predictions – cryptocurrencies futures

“Where is it going? It’s probably going to 100, then 150, then 200 thousand”. Chamath was one of the first people to invest in Bitcoin a decade ago.

You might be thinking, “is it too late for me to invest in Bitcoin?”

The truth is it’s not. See, crypto exchanges allow you to purchase fractions of Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency.

As cryptocurrencies go up, your investment will go up, even if you’ve only put $100 in the market.

However, for significant ROI you’ll want to have quite a significant amount of money invested.

#3. Cardano (ADA)

Cardano Crypto list
Crypto List – Cardano – cryptocurrencies futures

Cardano was founded in 2015 by Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson.

It’s ties to the Ethereum co-founder have made it a very popular crypto to buy, especially at it’s incredibly low price.

Cardano is currently trading around $1.18 and traded at $0.02 during its inception.

The trader sentiment is extremely strong with more than 99% of investors currently buying this cryptocurrency.

Analysts want to see this coin reach a new all-time high of $4.

Price predictions for ADA vary:

WalletInvestor predicts Cardano cryptocurrency to reach over $14 by the year 2026. However, they predict Cardano to reach $4.50 in one year.

Based on this prediction, buying today could double your profits in one year from now and multiply it by seven in five years.

ADA is a long-term crypto investment. I’m bullish.

#4. Dogecoin (DOGE)

Dogecoin cryptocurrency list
Cryptocurrencies List – Dogecoin – Cryptocurrencies futures

Dogecoin has to be the biggest meme cryptocurrencies in the market. I would consider DOGE to be one of the riskiest too.

Primarily because of the edge other coins have. Other cryptocurrencies are trying to solve real-world problems where as Dogecoin is a community meme.

However, it’s this community that’s allowed DOGE to be an extremely successful cryptocurrency this year.

It has gained a whopping 9000% just from one year alone.

Just like AMC and GameStop show us, communities are everything. Communities have power and I believe that Dogecoin will continue to surge as long as its community of retail investors want it to.

Dogecoin is currently trading around $0.17 and peaked at $0.74 back in May earlier this year.

You might know Mark Cuban and Elon Musk for being two massive supporters of the DOGE community.

Being in the AMC community, I’m very proud of communities and tip my hat to DOGE for what it’s created.

CryptoNewz predicts Dogecoin hover above $1.07 in the year 2022.

Based on this prediction, you could multiply your money by 4 in the short-term.

#5. (What Do You Think?)

What other cryptocurrency or cryptocurrencies at that, should be on this list?

Do you hold any of these on this list? What’s your favorite coin? Let’s have a discussion. Leave a comment below!

Honorable mentions

  1. XRP (XRP)
  2. Shiba Inu Coin (SHIBA)
  3. Tether (USDT)
  4. Binance Coin (BNB)

Have Money Work for You In 2022 (You’re Ready)

Have your money work for you in 2022
That next life is waiting for you – Happy New Year! 2022

2022 is here!

We’ve been taught many lessons stringing back from 2020 and transitioning to 2021.

Money has played an extremely important role in our lives.

How can you make 2022 one of your best years financially?

By having a plan.

Here are 3 massive ways you can command your money to work for you.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog accompanying you on your journey to financial and time freedom. Cheers to a prosperous, healthy, and abundant 2022.

Let’s get started!

In today’s article I’m going to go over 3 ways you can transform your finances by making some incredible money moves.

The awesome thing is that you don’t need to make a lot of money to make this happen.

It’s all about developing proper money management skills over time.

You already spend a lot of time working to earn your money; it’s tiring!

So why not learn how to put that money to work for you?

Here’s how you can make 2022 your best year financially.

#1. Start your first investment now

start investing in 2022
Start investing in 2022

You’ve probably always wanted to invest but have never really started.

Perhaps you don’t know where to start.

Bookmark this guide on how to start investing in stocks for beginners, it’s going to change your life.

One of the best ways to have your money work for you in 2022 is by putting it in a safe index fund such as the S&P 500 where it will earn you 8%-10% per year.

Investing your money is easy!

Most people have just never been exposed to how simple the process truly is.

Depending on your level of risk, you could invest in individual stocks that you think will go up in value over a period of time (e.g., Apple, Tesla, etc..).

The S&P 500 for example invests in the top 500 companies in the U.S. so it’s very well diversified: hence making it a safer investment.

I recommend you download the app “Mint” by intuit to track all of your accounts and see how they grow in real-time throughout 2022!

Create a plan to how much of your income you will be allocating towards investments every month.

I suggest having an emergency fund set aside first so that you’re always ready to tackle any unprecedented challenges this 2022.

#2. Diversify with cryptocurrency

Ways to invest your money

Cryptocurrency is here to stay and if you think it’s too late to invest in crypto, think again.

Crypto has made a loud statement, but analysts have massive predictions for many of the popular cryptocurrencies, meaning there’s a lot of room for growth.

Is crypto safe?

It is with Coinbase.

Another way you can have your money work for you is by allocating a small percentage into digital assets.

Two cryptos I’m personally long on are Cardano (ADA), and Shiba (SHIB).

Because these two digital assets are very affordable, planting seeds now could bear incredible fruits sometime during this decade.

So even though you might only be able to double or triple your investment this decade with Bitcoin, the opportunity for massive gains with other cryptocurrencies are still out there.

You can view when I buy both stocks and crypto exclusively on the Patreon.

#3. Begin to fund your freedom

Andrei Jikh
YouTuber Andrei Jikh – makes a living on YouTube

One way 2022 can become your best year financially is by creating a vehicle that will allow you to escape the rat race.

Have your money work for you buy investing in a vehicle that will provide you with financial security, and earn you back your time.

If you have a job or a career, use your employer as a means to fund your passions to create a sustainable second stream of income.

Most people believe that you should live off of the income your employer provides you with.

But in order to build wealth this new year, we’ll have to shift our mindsets so that the income caters to a greater income vehicle.

That income vehicle will vary from person to person but is the fastest way to financial and time freedom.

Your job/career can fund your dreams and ambitions so that one day you won’t have to rely on that job/career.

One of the greatest investments you can make is on yourself!

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

Let’s get started!

But first, I want to thank RizoStonks on Twitter for sharing this list with me.

I see you brother.

#1. Standard Chartered – $380 million and 6 investments

Standard Chartered Crypto

This international bank invests in Ripple, or XRP token.

#3. Morgan Stanley – $234 million with 3 investments

Morgan Stanley Crypto

One of Morgan Stanley’s investments is NYDIG.

NYDIG is a Bitcoin company that seeks to offer financial products such as Bitcoin accounts, rewards, and loyalty programs.

Sounds like such a bank thing to invest in if you ask me.

The bank is offering Bitcoin to it’s client through the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, a Bitcoin ETF.

#4. JP Morgan Chase – $206 million and 8 investments

JP Morgan Chase

JP Morgan is invested in Consensys blockchain technology.

banks are now embracing crypto

Digital payment technology is forcing banks to pivot.

They felt their power dissipating in this new decentralized economy and now want to gain control again.

For many years banks struggled with ideas on how to regulate cryptocurrency.

Now the banking industry is racing to catch up.

They want to participate in this new world and profit from it.

I guess you can say they feel like us wishing we’d had purchased bitcoin when it was worth $0.03 in 2010…

I was a sophomore in high school, what’s your excuse? 😂

Regardless, I feel like cryptocurrency in general is only going to continue to multiply in value.

I personally use Coinbase to purchase cryptocurrency.

I’m not invested in any ETF yet.

Cryptocurrency Will Democratize Finance

Cryptocurrency has distributed power away from the government and from Wall Street.

Retail investors finally have a chance at multiplying their investments without financial institutions having an advantage over them like in stock investing.

And if you’re interested to read how high some of these cryptocurrencies are predicted to go, check out this list here.

The potential upside is massive!

Despite what mainstream media or skeptics say about cryptocurrency today, just remember this..

4 Meme Stocks Causing A Disruption In The Market

Meme Stocks Reddit
Meme Stocks List

Meme stocks have been causing a disruption all of 2021. You might have heard of the infamous GameStop and AMC rallies that originated from the Reddit group, r/wallstreetbets.

Here’s a list of meme stocks causing a disruption in the stock market.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.

Lets get started!

If you’re new to the blog, be sure to browse the incredible library of financial knowledge when you’re done reading this post!

And if you’re not investing in stocks yet, bookmark this article where I walk my readers step by step on how to start.

What’s A Meme Stock?

A meme stock is a heavily shorted stock discovered by retail investors, usually on forums such as Reddit or other sub communities.

Retail investors will then hype these so called ‘meme stocks’ and immensely increase the buying pressure of a particular stock to drive the share price up.

How Long Does It Take For A Meme Stock To Go Up?

We’ve seen that these stocks may take a month to several months to see some serious upswings in the market. Retail investors pump the price by buying the dips and holding the stock until their mission is a success.

While not all meme stocks are pump and dumps, the concept is to pump a stock and hold it to further elevate the floor.

The end goal is to squeeze shorts from their positions to drive the stock price ‘to the moon’. Here’s the most current list of meme stocks seen in the community.

#1. GameStop, GME Stock

GameStop Meme Stock

Number one on my list is GameStop. GameStop notoriously put many short sellers and hedge funds under stress, starting this incredible retail movement.

GME stock began squeezing just below $500 per share before Robinhood halted buying pressure from retail investors, ultimately limiting its growth potential back in January.

This meme stock is currently up more than 1000% year-to-date. Retail investors continue to hold the stock in order to squeeze the remaining shorts from their positions.

Read: Will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again?

#2. AMC Entertainment, AMC Stock

AMC Meme Stock

And by far the most popular meme stock at the moment, AMC Entertainment stock. Retail investors who missed getting in early on GME stock saw AMC stock was heavily shorted and decided to bulk up on this meme stock.

The stock sharply rose up to $20 per share in late January before ultimately coming back down to $5 per share. After several months of ‘apes’ buying and holding the stock, AMC Entertainment stock rose to $72 per share and found a new bottom around $32 per share.

The meme stock has been trading in the low $50 range and is currently set up for a short squeeze.

Read: How high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

#3. GREE Stock (Formerly, SPRT)

Before its merger with the blockchain compamy Greenidge, SPRT stock had reached a high of $35 per share before ultimately plummeting back to $11. It has now merged with Greenidge and its ticker symbol is now GREE.

This meme stock perhaps lost its status as it still had potential to squeeze higher prior to the merge. However, this stock still caused quite a disruption for short sellers shorting the stock.

This stock has now become a long-term stock depending on your conviction towards blockchain technology.

Read: What does an SPRT merge with Greenridge mean for retail?

#4. Vinco Venture, BBIG Stock

Vinco Ventures Meme Stock

BBIG stock is a meme stock that surged from $1.25 to close to $11 per share. The stock’s retail momentum has it up more than 500% this year-to-date.

In order for you to have made massive moves with these stocks you would have had to opened a position in them earlier this year.

While investors who bought these stocks early this Summer still profited, investors who bought after could be breaking even or under significant gains.

These Meme Stocks Still Have Room To Squeeze

What’s mind boggling is that these meme stocks are still heavily shorted by hedge funds and short sellers.

I update the short interest data daily here for these stocks plus other retail favorites.

GME has been in the high $100s but has now reached $200 again. AMC finally broke its floor of $30 per share and is trading in the low $50s again. The other meme stocks show an increase of short interest data which means they still have room for growth.

Want To Stay Updated On These Momentum Plays?

If you’re thinking about investing in one of these momentum stocks, be sure to do your due diligence first before putting some serious cash first.

Once you have the data at hand, make an honest assessment for yourself and decide whether it is the right financial decision for you to make.

The AMC community has proven to be one of the most open, accepting, and positive communities so I definitely recommend checking it out even if it’s to see what the discussions are about.

Luckily, I update the community with trending stocks and keep an eye out on the data so you’re up-to-date on the next stocks to buy before they blow up. My readers who found out about AMC early this year are now up tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars!
