It looks as if AMC has now entered bullish territory. 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. Shame on you shills. Well, just how high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

AMC stock price closed at $40.74 on October 15th. The share volume rose and remains healthy as AMC prepares to take off. We have broken the $30 and $40 levels of consolidation. How soon will AMC rip?

AMC Entertainment has had an amazing runup this year. The crazy thing is shorts haven’t even begun to close their positions. Ladies and gentlemen, the short squeeze hasn’t even started.

Most of the market has been on sale and AMC has been no exception to that until now. AMC wants to keep climbing. The stock continues to consolidate as short sellers find loopholes to short the stock.

As some of you know, I update this article frequently. I update it with the intraday price action as well as any information pertaining to the stocks performance. A lot of the information on here will be left untouched as it is a means to archive a lot of the information from throughout the year.

What do we know about AMC stock price?

AMC’s stock price continues to be volatile although we’ve seen the stock is scared of single digit share price numbers.

No matter how many times this stock is attacked by short sellers, it keeps correcting itself upwards.

AMC stock price bull market

Key highlights

  1. We’re seeing AMC stock price enter bullish territory due to an increase of retail investors buying the stock.
  2. ‘W’ shape formations in the performance of the stock also indicate 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.
  5. The stock price is still relatively low enough for majority of people to buy, but hurry before it’s too late.
  6. The short borrow fee continues to increase, this means shorts will have to close their positions soon

Adam Aron, CEO & President of AMC Entertainment

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

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

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

As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open 4/14
  • AMC Entertainment has raised more than 2.2 billion dollars in cash
  • 90% of AMC theaters in the United States are now open with New York and Los Angeles finally reopening
  • Vaccinations and policies are making movie theaters safe
  • New movie titles are guaranteed to increase sales revenues
  • CEO and President Adam Aron expresses an optimistic future for AMC Entertainment

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

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

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

I wrote a small piece on Adam Aron being rightfully named the king ape here.

AMC’s Short Borrow Fee

AMC short borrow fee interest

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 10/15 is: 0.70% via. Stonk-O-Tracker.

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.

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 $40.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $40, resulting in even bigger losses.

Ladies and gentlemen, shorts could have closed at $5. With that being said, short sellers have lost more than a billion dollars this second quarter according to Ortex data.

Things are not looking so good for them. And it’s about to get a whole lot worse as AMC stock continues to surge.

How will this affect AMC stock price?

I can imagine shorts and hedge funds alike must be furious. The little guy causing a disruption, what!?!

My personal take is retail investors are going to continue to see foul play. You’re going to experience this from bogus headlines. They’ll usually try to steer the public from buying AMC stock to keep the volume and hype down.

Not sure if hedge funds know this yet but you do know documentaries of what’s taking place are in the works right?

Independent filmmakers such as the Mulligan Brothers will be covering this story from the retail investors perspective and rumor has it Netflix will be writing as well.

Expect AMC stock price to rise and continue to be shorted. We will see volatility with shorts attacking the price action. They do this by trading synthetic shares at low bids.

AMC Gamma squeeze before short squeeze

AMC Entertainment is currently the most shorted stock in the market (via. MarketWatch).

AMC Gamma Squeeze Before Short Squeeze
AMC Most Shorted Stock

Unfortunately, MarketWatch has completely eliminated AMC from their list. Retail investors are suspecting foul play from the hedge fund affiliates.

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-$10,000 mainly due to the stock’s popularity and trends in analytics. Yup, that’s crypto numbers.

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?

Vanguard

AMC stock price: quick overview

AMC sat around $5 for quite some time before moving back up to the $14 range. We’re currently seeing AMC trade at $40.74. AMC’s stock price has been trending upwards with consolidation and has been less volatile. This is very good price movement. AMC stock has never had a healthier setup.

What a storm. What a battle right? AMC keeps on keeping on, and although AMC has been on discount recently, the stock has finally broken its $30 level of resistance.

Retail investors are very excited about the data that’s been collected for months now. Will we see an AMC short squeeze while we continue to ride this bull? And if so, how soon?

franknez.com

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

Lets get started!

How soon will we see an AMC short squeeze? Retail investors all want to know. Is it this week? Will it be next week? Or, are we looking at a longer game here? Here’s what we know.

Key Highlights

  • AMC closed at $40.74 on October 15th. The stock has surged since early this year due to volume despite short sellers attacking it. AMC Entertainment is set up for a short squeeze.
  • The perfect time to buy AMC stock is when the market is red, or what we refer to as on ‘discount’. AMC is looking bullish though, red days might just be over.
  • AMC entertainment continues to be the most heavily shorted stock in the market.
  • AMC’s short borrow fee continues to increase.

Some of you reading this article might have been holding since February now. Kuddos to you for holding the line. If you’re a new retail investor getting in on AMC be sure to thank the seasoned apes when you get a chance.

Below is a series of documented facts and positive news that all influence AMC’s potential towards a short squeeze. One thing is certain, it’s inevitable.

AMC stock news and highlights

FOX Business reported AMC to have a strong chance of a short squeeze. Coming from a big news platform it certainly brings the stock sentiment up for most retail investors.

This is the type of news retail investors need to keep an eye out for.

AMC Short Squeeze News Fox Business
Strong chance of a short squeeze – Fox Business AMC

AMC is still currently the most shorted stock in the market.

Unfortunately, MarketWatch has completely obliterated AMC from their list. Being a hedge fund affiliate, retail investors suspect foul play.

President and CEO of AMC Entertainment Adam Aron, announced AMC will reopen all 13 AMC theaters in New York City as of March 5th. As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open across the United States with many selling out.

Check out what Adam Aron had to say (via. Investor Relations AMC)

“Since reopening our first theatres with AMC Safe & Clean in August, AMC has welcomed back nearly 10 million moviegoers nationwide without a single reported case of COVID-19 transmission among moviegoers at our theatres. We look forward to welcoming back our New York City guests to the big seats, big sounds and big screens that are only possible at a movie theatre.”

Adam aron, President and CEO of AMC Entertainment

For those who thought AMC was a dead company, think again. The company is now generating big revenue since it’s reopening.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital AMC Stock
Melvin Capital Hedge Fund – AMC

This is huge! Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss it’s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

Here’s why this matters:

  • Not only are shorts losing money every day but huge hedge funds are bleeding
  • This is a huge win for retail investors
  • Unless shorts close their positions, hedge funds will continue to suffer
  • Interest rates can skyrocket for short sellers enabling them to close their positions
  • An AMC short squeeze might be closer than we think

Here’s what retail investors can do:

  1. Continue to hold your positions, it’s free
  2. Buy the dips to counter any short attacks
  3. Share articles on social platforms that can provide value to the community
  4. Keep a close eye on the stock to not miss the squeeze

I’m going to discuss a little more on the short borrow fee that continues to increase for these hedge funds shorting the stock. This is going to be a massive component to a short squeeze.

Positive news for AMC Entertainment

Adam Aron gives positive news on AMC Entertainment
  • AMC Entertainment has raised more than 2.2 billion dollars in cash
  • 90% of AMC theaters in the United States are now open with New York and Los Angeles finally reopening
  • Vaccinations and policies are making movie theaters safe
  • New movie titles are guaranteed to increase sales revenues
  • CEO and President Adam Aron expresses an optimistic future for AMC Entertainment
  • AMC Entertainment has implemented a Safe & Clean program under the advisement from Harvard University’s prestigious School of Public health as well as well as the No. 1 U.S. cleaning brand, The Clorox Company. This means movie goers can now return at ease knowing a proper sanitation program has been put in place.

Hedge fund affiliate partners such as MarketWatch, The Fool, and other finance website have been trying to redirect the public from investing in this stock. That’s primarily because hedge funds are losing millions by the day.

A short squeeze could even put them out of business. This is why it’s important for me to spread the positive news surrounding AMC. I don’t believe in the manipulation of the media and I will continue to update these articles as more great news unfolds.

There will not be a 500 million AMC share dilution!

In recent news, Adam Aron has announced that AMC Entertainment no longer plans on proceeding with the plans of adding 500 million more AMC shares to the arsenal in a tweet on Tuesday, April 27th.

You can read AMC Entertainment’s official announcement on their press release page here.

Is AMC Shorted?

AMC’s current short interest is close to 18%. As of 10/15, we’re seeing 450,000 short shares have been made available to borrow, via Stonk-O-Tracker. AMC continues to be heavily shorted despite what mainstream media claims.

AMC’s short shares available will be updated here so be sure to bookmark this page.

While shorts might have the capability to short AMC stock, this is only temporary. They will run out of borrowed shares and eventually have to cover. There are finally investigations going around regarding naked shorting.

Yeah.. I sense a grand mother of all short squeezes. #GMOASS

What does this mean for the AMC shareholder?

Expect to see gains after shorts have run out of borrowed shares to use. Hedge funds and short sellers alike have dug a deeper hole for themselves. What this means for the AMC shareholder is a squeeze bigger than anything the market has ever seen before. I am personally doubling down.

Not only is bankruptcy off the table (via. Los Angeles Times), but AMC movie theaters are now about to begin reopening in larger parts of the United States. Which of course now introduces revenue.

AMC Q1 earnings for 2021

AMC announced their Q1 earnings for 2021 on Thursday, May 6th. Things are looking particularly bullish and optimistic to say the very least.

For the retail investor this means the upper hand is yours. AMC Entertainment has raised over $2 billion dollars to hold them off until the year 2022. And we still have to go through Q2, Q3, and Q4!

Unfortunately for hedge funds shorting the stock, it’s over. If you missed the conference call you can view it here for your viewing pleasure.

AMC Q1 2021 highlights

  • The AMC community is recognized
  • Q1 earnings are higher than last years 4th quarter
  • Expectations for Q2 – Q4 are much higher
  • Food and beverage sales are up by 45%
  • Sales revenue will continue to rise as new titles are being released

AMC Q2 earnings for 2021

Quarter 2 earnings for AMC were absolutely amazing! I published an entire article on this information you can read all about here.

AMC Q2 2021 highlights

  • Record breaking $2 billion in liquidity
  • Increased revenue / tickets & concession
  • AMC to accept Bitcoin by the end of the year
  • GameStop partnership
  • Enhancing the cinema experience with sports and music performance

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

It’s really hard to tell. Even experts can’t identify an exact date and time. However, the possibility of an AMC short squeeze is certainly possible given that it is still the most shorted stock in the market and the stocks volume continues to rise. We also now have more data then ever before that indicate a massive short squeeze is almost certain to happen. Especially now that the SEC has announced some crackdown on shorting.

With Melvin Capital and other hedge funds losing money, it’s only a matter of time before the short borrow fee continues to skyrocket and shorts have to close their positions.

It’s tendie time!

Analyst AMC predictions

With that being said, Trey’s Trades predicts a short squeeze is now certainly guaranteed. Trey has been a leader in the AMC community and deserves a spot on this page.

More data points towards the stock reaching $1000+ per share.

See what stock analyst Trey has to say.

AMC short squeeze

The real questions is how can retail investors make this AMC short squeeze happen?

We know that short-sellers eventually have to cover their spots. This means that they will eventually have to buy AMC stock at the current share price.

  1. If retail investors continue to drive the share price up by buying the dip and holding their positions, short-sellers will have no other option than to buy from the retail investor at a higher share price.

NOTE: Retail investors do have to sell a bit as the price goes up in order to keep that momentum. Look at it as giving rats crumbs. Not only will they want more but they’ll need more.

2. Retail investors will also need to buy the climbs in order to show a demand for the stock. This doesn’t have to be huge buys, rather incremental to validate the current share price.

This play essentially creates a supply and demand scenario between retail investors and short-sellers. The results? A short squeeze.

Hedge funds are doing everything they can to prevent a short squeeze

How are they doing this?

  • By promoting false information online (we’re certain you’ve seen it)
  • Through strategies such as short-ladder attacks in the market
  • And, by restricting certain brokerage accounts from allowing its retail investors to purchase or buy shorted stocks (Robing hood)
AMC Gorilla

This is what retail investors can do to fight corruption

  • Share content that presents facts (blog posts, analysis videos, etc.)
  • Continue to educate yourself and make investment decisions based on your personal analysis
  • Protect the community and one another
  • Follow your instincts

What will a short squeeze look like?

We’ll begin to see a trend similar to that of GME (Gamestop). AMC will enter a bullish territory before hitting an ‘abnormal’ peak in which AMC would have ‘squoze’.

What will an AMC short squeeze look like?

According to Trey’s Trades we’ve already hit the bottom. AMC continues to be heavily shorted through dark pools. This price level can be seen as a buying opportunity for retail investors looking to squeeze shorts out of their positions. We’ve seen resistant levels around $14-$16 recently which is a great push from $5. We’re now sitting at 40.74 per share.

Recent performance and news is leaving retail investors with positive speculations. An AMC short squeeze will certainly make headlines. Expect to see various gains prior to any sort of major peak as well as volatility.

Retail investors will have to hold their positions through upcoming gains if they want to see AMC short squeeze.

But most importantly, they’ll have to refrain from selling at the first sight of gains if they are to see bigger and more massive gains.

Gamma squeeze vs Short squeeze

Don’t confuse gains and momentum with a short squeeze.

Here’s the difference between a gamma squeeze and a short squeeze:

A gamma squeeze are momentum gains. These usually occur from call options closing in the pocket resulting in heavy buys or purchases in the market.

A short squeeze is vigorous and can spike with no warning. This is where you see 100% gains in a matter of seconds and minutes. A short squeeze can even reach 1000% and 10,000% gains.

AMC Short Squeeze Stock Prediction

New retail investors are wondering whether $1k, $10k, or even $100k per share is even possible.

Gabe from ReviewDork does some math that’s going to leave you with an open mind.

AMC stock price predictions range from $1,000 to $100k+.

Will AMC reach peaks like GME?

AMC has been fortunate enough to receive more publicity and hype than GME did, at least recently. The volume will speak for itself and retail investors will just have to wait to find out.

We’ve seen that abnormal gains are naturally part of a short squeeze. Volkswagen rose up to nearly $1,000 when it squeezed back in 2008 due to a similar strategy produced by car manufacturer Porsche.

Analysts are predicting AMC can even go above the $1K mark if retail investors and institutions alike continue to buy and hold their positions. Wouldn’t this be something. If you’re holding 1,000 shares and AMC spikes to $1K per share, you my friend have made 1 million dollars!

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

Absolutely not, at least not yet. AMC Entertainment is still heavily shorted. You will have to decide whether its current share price is worth it if trades at $100, $500, or even $1,000+. AMC Entertainment stock has not even started squeezing yet.

Redditors have touched base on this topic and advise anything below $100 is a buy. I’ve been personally buying the stock when it dips. This allows me to pick up more shares at a discount.

If you’re a beginner, I recommend buying 5-10 shares of AMC stock. This amount will give you a feel of the market. Not only is it affordable, but if the market is red you won’t see much loss on paper.

Where was AMC trading at before the pandemic?

AMC was actually trading between $30-$35 back in the booming party economy of 16′! AMC stock started to decline as their debt increased and hedge funds began to heavily short it.

Short sellers could have covered back in August when AMC’s stock price was trading at $30 levels. However, it doesn’t AMC is going back down to these levels. We broke past $50 but are hovering close to $40 again due to massive shorting in the market.

Read: AMC stock is primed to bounce back up: MOASS

What if a short squeeze doesn’t happen?

If an AMC short squeeze doesn’t occur, AMC stock price will still go up allowing shareholders to make at least some sort of profit.

With AMC theaters now open, it’s inevitable that the company will begin to see bigger sales revenue every time a new title is released. I update this post when new titles make the headlines regarding earnings.

Keep in mind that AMC’s share price during the booming party economy of 16′ was roughly around $30 per share. If a short squeeze doesn’t happen, fundamentals will continue to bring the stock up as more investors are buying the stock.

However, a short squeeze not happening is very unlikely as AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market and most held stock, beating both Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA), via. NASDAQ. Majority of the float is also held by retail investors and short sellers are going to be forced to close their positions very soon, more on that coming up.

As Mark Cuban bluntly put it, keep holding.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

AMC hasn’t squeezed yet primarily to two main reasons.

  1. We need more volume to drive the stock price action up
  2. Shorts need to close their positions

Volume really just comes to more and more retail investors as well as institutions getting in on AMC stock.

Regarding shorts covering, retail investors need to squeeze them out of their positions by holding their positions and helping increase AMC’s short borrow fee. You can keep tabs on AMC’s short borrow fee as it changes every day via. Ortex, or Fintel.

AMC short borrow fee

As of 10/15 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 0.70%.

Read: When do shorts have to cover their position? (AMC)

Aside from this, Wanda Group had caused a little bit of disruption for retail investors by profiting on the first sight of gains.

This turmoil was only short-term but is a reason why we’ve seen some selloff in the market a few weeks ago.

However, Adam Aron has recently brought awareness in an interview with Trey’s Trades that this selloff from Wanda is simply policy from China. Retail investors should not be concerned.

Is AMC Ever Going To Squeeze?

All the numbers point towards the right direction for a massive short squeeze. Shorts and hedge funds continue to lose money every day. The interest is growing at an alarming rate and AMC’s current utilization is around 88%.

The lives of these retail investors are about to completely change. Say goodbye to your old world.

AMC stock is going up and continues to leave hedge funds and publishers such as Yahoo Finance, The Fool, and other sources baffled.

Although hedge fund partners are sticking together to mislead the publics opinion when investing in AMC (and other “meme stocks”), we’re going to let you know why this particular stock is going up.

Please keep in mind that I am not a licensed financial advisor. All the information you are about to read is based on expert sources and will be presented in a manor that informs you why AMC stock is going up.

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

Lets get started.

Volatility is normal in the stock market

We’ve seen a lot of volatility in the market recently. If you’re a new investor chances are you might have been scared off to sell and then noticed the stock slightly go up again in the green tier.

Don’t feel bad, volatility in the stock market is normal. This doesn’t just apply to AMC stock. But if you haven’t sold, kudos to you. #diamondhands.

So, what’s causing the stock to go back up? Well, there are numerous reasons why AMC is back in the green tier. Keep reading to find out whether this stock might be a good pick for you.

Reasons why AMC stock is going up

reasons why amc stock is going up
  1. Large institutions such as Wells Fargo, Vanguard, BMO Harris, Charles Schwab, Fidelity, & BlackRock are buying the stock right now (via. CNN Business)
  2. AMC CEO Adam Aron, announced bankruptcy is officially “off the table” and have raised $2.2 billion in cash this new year.
  3. Because AMC is currently the most shorted stock (via. MarketWatch), the stock price has gone up and will continue to go up as long as retail investors keep buying the stock. *Unfortunately MarketWatch has removed AMC from their list. Retail investors suspect foul play from this hedge fund partner.
  4. AMC is currently the most held stock surpassing Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA) – via Nasdaq.
  5. Godzilla vs. Kong secures $9.6 million in ticket sales on it’s opening night! Keep reading below for the numbers on NEW titles increasing AMC Entertainment’s revenue.
  6. SEC is starting to crackdown on short sellers.

AMC Entertainment is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy

There’s actually a lot of positive things going on for AMC Entertainment despite what The Fool, InvestorPlace and other shill news might try to convince you of.

The sentiment behind AMC stock keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger by the day. This is primarily because people are smarter than these hedge funds think. Ultimately, the data speaks for itself.

Now, Adam Aron who is the President and CEO of AMC Entertainment has done an outstanding job with the media. In this video we can hear his optimism for the movie theater chain before AMC theaters began to reopen.

Adam Aron clip as theaters were beginning to reopen

As of April 2021 all AMC movie theaters are now open with many even selling out.

If you’re familiar with Trey’s Trades you’ve more than likely seen his interview with Adam. I wrote a piece on this to highlight key moments of the interview.

You can check it out here.

AMC Q1 2021 Earnings

AMC just announced their Q1 earnings for 2021. Things are looking particularly bullish and optimistic to say the very least.

For the retail investor this means the upper hand is yours. AMC Entertainment has raised over $2 billion dollars to hold them off until the year 2022. And we still have to go through Q2, Q3, and Q4!

If you missed the conference you can check it out from Matt Kohrs imbedded here for your viewing pleasure.

AMC Q2 Earnings Call

I published an entire article on Q2 earnings call so be sure to read it here! AMC doubled their earnings and have a ton of exciting new things coming to movie theaters.

Key highlights include:

  • AMC accepting Bitcoin by the end of the year
  • Open to partnering up with GameStop!
  • Looking into licensing rights to show concerts and sports events on the big screen

AMC Entertainment has a great vision when it comes to innovation. I’m excited to see our movie theaters evolve to provide an even greater theatrical experience.

Fundamentals are also causing AMC stock to go up

AMC Entertainment as a company has a lot of partners and friends they’ve gained throughout the 100 years they’ve been in business.

They’ve been able to raise money to pay off debt and focus on ways to welcome people back to the movie theaters safely.

Revenue is a very positive factor playing into the fundamentals of AMC’s stock price action. AMC Entertainment is set to release a ton of awesome titles this year which has people excited for that movie theater experience.

AMC’s CEO is one great leader

With this being said, Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment is not backing down. Adam has talked about his experience saving Norwegian Cruise Line and how he intends to to keep AMC alive for as long as he lives to run the company.

If you haven’t seen his interview with Trey’s Trades you can watch the video embedded here for a more in depth perspective of what AMC Entertainment means to him.

Why are large institutions buying AMC stock?

Vanguard AMC

Speculation would point out AMC is possibly a good investment, contrary to what Yahoo Finance, The Fool, and other resources are leading the public to believe, right?

It is important to note that these institutions are purchasing millions in AMC stock. Just a side note here: if AMC isn’t a good investment like some sources are pumping out, then why are large institutions buying while the stock is low in price? Hmm..

My educated guess? Large institutions aren’t going to be wanting to miss out on upcoming gains from a short squeeze.

Aside from a short squeeze however, AMC Entertainment seems to be a good buy even as a long-term stock. Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC has shared his optimistic views towards the direction of his company.

AMC is a good buy with or without a short squeeze.

What is a short squeeze?

A short squeeze occurs when a stock jumps sharply higher, forcing short sellers to buy higher, causing them to lose money. This in turn makes the retail investor (you and I) a LOT of money.

This notion of an upcoming short squeeze is drawing in a lot of attention. This is why we’re seeing AMC stock go up as well. Its purchase share volume is going up.

And where there’s attention, there’s money to be made.

Volume is important for an AMC short squeeze

As more and more retail investors get in on AMC and continue to buy and hold, we’re going to keep experiencing the stock price rise.

Because volume is such an important factor, retail investors and institutions will need to not only buy the dips but the gains as well.

By buying the gains in increments, the market processes this as a demand in the stock; further driving up the share price.

The main reason why AMC stock will keep going up

A short squeeze needs volume

AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market.

Short-sellers such as Melvin Capital bet on the businesses like AMC to lose. These are the folk that don’t care about workers losing their jobs, or about the companies success. This hits home to most retail investors which means convictions towards AMC stock is strong.

The way these short-sellers make money is quite simple. They short the stock. However, they’re not making any money right now. In face, they’re upside down by billions of dollars.

Shorting a stock is the process by which sellers essentially bet on the stock price to drop. They borrow stocks at a higher cost and sell the stock low, profiting the difference and driving the share price to the ground.

Fortunately, retail investors like the stock and are against shorting it. This is why AMC continues to go up. Retail investors have all the time in the world to see this short squeeze through. Shorts however, are paying the price every day.

And if you’re wondering, yes this is exactly what occurred with GameStop. Except AMC might just be the MOASS (mother of all short squeezes).

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital

This is huge for retail investors. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock for quite some time now.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss it’s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

The importance of this is very significant. AMC is not a dead cat. Hedge funds continue to short the stock in hopes that they can reverse what’s been done. Unfortunately for them it’s only a matter of time before shorts are squeezed out of their positions due to the increase in short borrow fee and utilization of the stock.

AMC Entertainment has been heavily short laddered in the recent weeks. However, the stock seems to continuously correct itself which is why we’re seeing AMC go up again.

For some reason AMC does not like single digit numbers. This stock is going to continue to test high levels of support as fundamentals push the stock in an upwards trend. Fundamentals such as earnings will play a major role in this organic push up.

r/wallstreetbets like AMC stock

r/wallstreet bets like AMC stock

The people, along with r/wallstreetbets do not want the movie theaters closed. They are purchasing AMC at the dip and holding. This is where the terms diamond hands comes from.

According to Robinhood, AMC is the most held stock beating both Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA)! Source: via Nasdaq.

This means AMC shareholders will eventually have leverage over the stock from short-sellers as the price goes up.

As long as retail investors continue to hold, we’ll begin to see a supply and demand situation.

Short-sellers will eventually have to buy from retail investors to cover their spots, inevitably driving AMC share price higher.

Positive AMC Theater news!

AMC movie theaters across the entire country are selling out! New releases are serving the movie theater industry very well.

Godzilla vs. Kong secures $9.6 million in ticket sales

AMC theater - Godzilla vs Kong

Warner Bros. said Thursday that “Godzilla vs. Kong” secured $9.6 million in ticket sales on its opening night. This has been a record debut for the pandemic. As of April 26th it has done over $400 million global!

Leave me a comment below if you watched the film. I personally loved everything about it.

Mortal Kombat & Demon Slayer outperform earnings

Mortal Kombat brought in 23.3 million its opening weekend. Critics expected Mortal Kombat to reach no more than 15 million. A huge victory for the cinema industry! Not only that but Demon Slayer drew in another whopping 19.5 million its opening weekend.

AMC theater Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat reps the biggest R-rated opening to-date during the pandemic. The beautiful thing is that we have other amazing titles coming to the movies that can continue to scale beyond these numbers.

The top 10 locations for Mortal Kombat were:

1. AMC Burbank Los Angeles, 2. Santikos Palladium San Antonio, 3. Cinemark Tinseltown El Paso, 4. Santikos Casa Blanca San Antonio, 5. AMC Orange Los Angeles, 6. Cinemark Pharr Town Center (Texas), 7. AMC Empire New York, 8. Cinemark Century 16 Corpus Christi, 9. AMC Gulf Pointe Houston, and 10. AMC Southlake Pavilion Atlanta.

Source, via. Deadline.

I have not watched Demon Slayer yet but Mortal Kombat was a fun film to watch. I grew up on the video games (shoutout to GameStop) and the older films so seeing this today made my year. If you have not gone out to your local AMC theater I recommend you do.

A Quiet Place Part II: $57 Million Pandemic Record

A Quiet Place Part 2 earnings
Movie theater earnings: A Quiet Place Part 2

A Quiet Place Part 2 debuted in theaters on Friday May 28 and broke pandemic records in the cinema industry.

Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part 2 topped Godzilla vs. Kong and Mortal Kombat combined on their opening night reaching $57 million over the Memorial Day Weekend. A huge congrats to the industry and AMC Entertainment.

As more Americans continue to get vaccinated, health concerns ease. AMC Entertainment is seeing a critical mass effect as the public feels safer. I’m personally happy for the century old company and its shareholders invested in the stock.

The Conjuring Earns $11.5 Million Opening Weekend in the U.S.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It earned $11.5 million its opening weekend and grossing 57.1 million worldwide. Congrats to James Wan and the movie theater industry. The Conjuring films are currently the top grossing horror franchise of all time with $1.9 billion at the global box office.

Wall Street analyst upgrades AMC Theatres

Wall street analyst says, ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ “Destroys lingering concerns around theatrical window importance and demonstrates a solid path to resurgence”, via. Hollywood Reporter.

Eric Wold goes on to say, “Consumers want to leave the house and return to the theater.”

There seems to be a massiveness of positivity going around for the theater industry, especially AMC being the leader. As AMC continues to increase their sales revenue with hit titles, you can expect AMC’s stock price to continue surging. Massive victory for the AMC theaters!

Upcoming movie news and revenue will be updated here so be sure to follow me on Twitter to know when the post has been updated.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

In short, no. With the price of AMC stock being affordable to majority of the public, it’s a steal right now. Especially considering it has set a new floor in the low $30 range and has touched $50 per share twice now. Once in June and again in September.

The ‘ape’ community plans on taking this stock above $100 fundamentally through buying pressure before squeezing shorts from their positions.

I strongly believe AMC will do great post pandemic, and apparently so do other institutions (with or without a short squeeze).

Will GameStop See a Massive Short Squeeze Again?

Will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again?
Franknez.com
GameStop GME stock

Are you a new retail investor? Bookmark these investing tips from Frank Nez.

Just when we thought GameStop’s short squeeze was over we begin to see GME gain some momentum. GameStop has been the heart of the wallstreetbets movement and continues to have a strong sentimental hold on retail investors and gamers alike.

The retail investors who missed GameStop’s first squeeze either bought AMC shares or bought GME while it was still high. And if you got in when it fell back down to $40, well you’re doing pretty well right now. So, will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again? Here’s what we know.

franknez.com
GameStop Stock

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!

GME stock

GameStop closed at $190.14 on Wednesday September 22nd.

Trading volume is currently sitting at 2.2 million with 3.5 million being GameStop’s average volume. Today’s move was amazing for the ape community.

Understanding the short-seller

GameStop has taken the entire internet and finance world by a storm. What is happening nowadays. Retail investors over at r/wallstreetbets have opened Pandora’s Box on short-sellers and hedge fund institutions.

Short-sellers are investors who short the stock.

Shorting a stock is the process by which sellers essentially bet on the stock price to drop. They borrow stocks at a higher cost and sell the stock low, profiting the difference.

Short Selling GameStop Stock
How short selling works

We’ve seen GameStop drop down and consolidate at $40 after its gamma squeeze peaked close to $500 per share back in January. As of September 22nd it is trading around $190.14.

The stock has made a massive climb after some serious consolidation. It looks like GameStop is prepping itself for another gamma squeeze.

Could we finally see that GME squeeze everyone’s been waiting for?! I think its time.

See, GameStop’s short interest is still rather high and not all short sellers closed their positions back in January. This means the stock still has loads of room to go bonkers.

What is a short-ladder attack?

short-ladder attack is a strategy performed by short-sellers where they bid on the stock at a significantly lower sell price and purchase it from one another. Thus, driving the share price lower.

How do you spot a short-ladder attack? When the stock knows nothing but gains, but something keeps pushing it down until over and over again, that’s when you’ll know.

Why GameStop has potential for a second short squeeze

  1. Short-sellers didn’t learn their lesson from the first time. GameStop stock is still being heavily shorted.
  2. With GameStop becoming a technology company, its value has not only significantly gone up but it now has even more potential to keep driving its momentum.
  3. Retail investors have a strong conviction towards GameStop investment. This means they’re not willing to sell the stock which in turn creates a supply and demand scenario with short-sellers who have to close their positions.

Short Share Availability and Short Borrow Fee Rate

You can see GameStop’s short share availability and short borrow fee rate using this link (via. Fintel)

This number of course changes every day and can be expected to rise as hedge funds continue to short GameStop stock. However, the short borrow fee rate isn’t a catalyst for GME to squeeze.

I’m excited for my subcommunity that holds both GME and AMC stock because both are about to skyrocket past Pluto.

GME Stock Analysis

Roensch Capital goes over the data for trending stocks. The information is very easy to understand and gives you insight in the market from an analysts perspective.

Be sure to check out recent videos as they’re being uploaded to stay updated with any changes that occur in the market with GameStop.

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.

Volume is key to a second GameStop short squeeze

Just like AMC, GameStop will need to see a continuous runup in share volume.

When retail investors continue to buy and hold GameStop stock, short-sellers shorting the stock eventually have to buy back the stock. This demand and supply scenario results in various gamma squeezes.

The gains we’ve seen with GameStop have been a series of gamma squeezes, or incremental gains.

Usually what follows after gamma squeezes is a short squeeze if it has enough volume. The volume of shares depends on how much retail investors are purchasing GameStop stock or selling it.

You can keep an eye on it via. Yahoo Finance.

How Soon Will A Second GameStop Short Squeeze Happen?

There is so much volatility occurring in the stock market at the moment. Such volatility is usually a sign of an upcoming short squeeze as we saw back in January.

Not only are retail investors experiencing a lot of volatility, but GameStop stock seems to be in bullish territory which is great for volume.

FOMO (fear of missing out) continues to bring in new retail investors which is a great driving factor to the stocks volume.

GameStop announces fourth quarter earnings for 2020 (ARCHIVE)

GameStop announces fourth quarter earnings for 2020

GameStop announced that it will be releasing its fourth quarter and fiscal earnings for 2020 on Tuesday, March 23rd after trading hours.

This announcement is very important because owners of the company will go over earnings, as well as future assessment that let retail investors know the direction of the company as a whole.

This of course can have a very good impact on the stock price should the reports come back positive.

Here is the link to GameStop’s news release –> LINK.

However, like most companies affected by the pandemic, the numbers for the last quarter weren’t the best. This shouldn’t affect the stock price moving forward though. There’s too much sentiment surrounding this stock now.

Saving GameStop

Retail investors now have the power to save any company they wish to save. Now it’s only a matter of time for GameStop to step up and raise capital so that they can innovate and provide more value back.

GameStop is currently looking for ways to operate more efficiently. While the Reddit community was able to keep them from going bankrupt, the company as a whole will need to continue kicking butt.

Here’s what’s been going on with GameStop recently.

Current GameStop news

GameStop wallstreetbets
  • GameStop introduces Matt Furlong as the new CEO of the company.
  • GME shares are still up nearly 1100% this year-to-date with the company’s valuation at $15 billion.
  • Bullish GameStop options are still currently being heavily traded

Prior to GameStop, Matt Furlong worked at Amazon in Australia overseeing the growth of operations. He also worked in brand and marketing for Procter & Gamble years before.

The skills to grow operations and to properly brand and market will benefit GameStop immensely.

What can retail investors do to tackle shorting?

If retail investors want to counter GameStop’s stock price from plummeting, they’ll have to continue to hold and buy the stock.

This short squeeze play will require patience.

Important advisory

If you hold a position in GameStop, it’s important that you ask yourself what your reason for holding is. Does your DD provide you with the confidence to stick to it longer if need be? If so, stick to your convictions and trust the process.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get in on GameStop before it gamma squeezed so I took a position in AMC instead. Taking this position has been one of the best financial decisions I’ve ever made.

I would take a position in GameStop if it was more affordable. Regardless, I like the stock and I love the community even more.

Will GameStop finally short squeeze?

I think GameStop is preparing itself to put short sellers out of their misery. The stock has been havoc to hedge funds and we can tell they’re giving out primarily due to this massive breakthrough we’re seeing now.

And although I personally don’t hold GME stock, I have a lot of awesome memories at GameStop which I would actually like to share with you at the end of this article.

Now let’s talk about a little justice. A major hedge fund that was attacking GameStop has now been reported to lose a significant amount of money.

Bookmark: List of momentum stocks: Interest and utilization

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin capital suffers 49% loss 1st quarter of 2021

Ladies and gentlemen this is massive. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both GameStop and AMC stock.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss it’s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

Here’s why this matters:

  • Not only are shorts losing money every day but huge hedge funds are bleeding
  • This is a huge win for retail investors
  • Unless shorts close their positions, hedge funds will continue to suffer
  • Interest rates can skyrocket for short sellers enabling them to close their positions

We’ve see GameStop’s short borrow fee decrease but I wouldn’t be surprised if it begins moving back up very soon. Hedge funds have been trying to obliterate our beloved GameStop from the face of the planet. Something about them losing a lot of money feels like justice.

Believe me, I’m 100% for making money. The ethical way. You should be supporting beloved companies, not targeting them just because you see an opportunity to kick someone when they’re down.

Karma is about to get a lot worse for hedge funds betting against both GameStop and AMC.

Read: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

Will GameStop stock go up again?

As long as the stock continues to be shorted and held, GameStop can expect a series of gamma squeezes to continue pushing the stock up. This will inevitably lead to the ultimate short squeeze.

Fundamentals can also drive GameStop’s stock price up. The company will have to run efficiently by being able to meet projected goals. Although this is not a fundamental play, mainstream media still has some influence over this.

Short sellers continue to face devastating losses from shorting GameStop. Hedge funds are about to burn their second hand after playing with fire again.

Leave a comment below. Do you remember your first GameStop memory? I’m sure you have many. I remember the first time my brother and I went inside a GameStop it was unreal.

It was my first time inside an actual video game store. The coolest thing was seeing how many different games and accessories they had for all the consoles at the time.

Some of the most awesome memories at GameStop was seeing that brand new game on display. For me, it was Guitar Hero. My god. Seeing all the marketing behind the game and the guitar in display was heaven.

I also remember the employees giving you close to nothing for a used game, lol. What are some memories you have of GameStop? I would love to hear from you. Leave them in the comment below.

Is AMC Stock A Buy Or Is It Too Late?

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?
Is it too late to buy AMC Entertainment stock?

Are you a new retail investor? Bookmark these investing tips from Frank Nez

If you’ve been following the stock market news you’ve probably heard of all the hype surrounding AMC stock and GME (GameStop).

It wasn’t long before traders flocked over to AMC after the massive gains GameStop yielded due to the high percentage of shorting within the stocks.

Shorting a stock is the process by which sellers essentially bet on the stock price to drop. They borrow stocks at higher cost and sell the stock low, profiting the difference.

Well, investors over at r/wallstreetbets found that by purchasing stocks at low price in heavy volumes it would drive a short squeeze. A short squeeze occurs when a stock jumps sharply higher, forcing short sellers to buy higher, causing them to lose money. Lots of it.

trending investing topics

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!

Will we see a squeeze with AMC?

AMC Entertainment short Squeeze

There are numerous news that lead traders and investors alike to predict an upcoming short squeeze like we saw with GME (Gamestop).

  • CEO of AMC announces AMC is no longer going bankrupt (via. Los Angeles Times)
  • Vanguard, Wells Fargo, BMO Harris, BlackRock, Fidelity and many more institutions are buying AMC stock while it’s low (via. CNN Business)
  • AMC is currently the most shorted stock (via. MarketWatch) Unfortunately MarketWatch has hidden AMC from their list. Retail investors suspect foul play.
  • AMC is also currently one of the most held stocks surpassing Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA) (via. Nasdaq)
  • More publicity and awareness has average people investing in AMC which is driving volume for a potential squeeze

Big institutions keep buying AMC stock

We’re seeing huge institutions are investing in AMC stock while it’s affordable. Because it’s affordable we’re also seeing average people invest in this stock.

As long as the stock is being held, though lows and through highs, a squeeze like we saw with GME (GameStop) is certainly possible.

AMC stock closed at $47.30 on September 14th. The stock has begun to trend upwards again. The stocks patterns indicate bullish movement. However, shorts continue to short ladder the stock causing a little bit of consolidation. AMC wants to keep climbing.

Short-laddering occurs when short investors buy back their shares at a low price, driving down (or leveling the stock) gains. These are the attacks we’ve been seeing whenever AMC begins to see gains, all year.

As long as AMC shareholders continue to hold and buy the dip, short investors are at a disadvantage.

Great news for AMC Entertainment

Other news that can further drive the share price of AMC stock is the announcement that most AMC theaters have now begun to open up.

BREAKING: AMC’s short borrow fee as of 9/14 is 0.90%, via. Fintel.

The fee is going up although it had recently come down.

What is a short borrow fee?

AMC short borrow fee
Franknez.com

The short borrow fee is the interest shorts pay for borrowing shares of AMC stock.

This means shorts are losing money every day by not closing their positions. If we want to squeeze shorts from their positions we’ll need to see this short borrow fee gradually increase.

Why the short borrow fee rate matters

It costs shorts interest to hold while it costs the retail investor absolutely nothing to hold.

Shorts are losing money every day they hold because of this interest fee for borrowing the stock.

For some reason shorts still think AMC Entertainment can go bankrupt, although they have enough money to continue doing business.. I know, I don’t understand this either.

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 continue to pay interest for borrowing.

How high can AMC stock go up to?

AMC to the moon

Because we’ve seen a lot of suppression in the market due to short-ladder attacks, many traders are anticipating AMC stock can get as high if not higher than GME (GameStop).

This is actually quite logical given that we’re seeing more and more people and institutions alike purchase AMC stock and hold their positions.

There’s a notion that all these suppressed gains will result in a massive short squeeze during the Summer. Again, this is all speculation but all signs are pointing towards big gains.

So, is it too late to purchase AMC stock?

The price after a short squeeze eventually fall back down and level out, but this will take time. With AMC stock treading below $100, now could be the perfect time to buy. Just don’t wait too long because we hear it’s going to the moon.

Hedge funds continue to short AMC and the volume is increasing; it’s the perfect storm for a short squeeze.

Read: What The Fool isn’t telling you about AMC could hurt you

Things to expect in the market with AMC

  • Volatility followed with an upward trend in price action
  • Short-ladder attacks
  • Headlines advising you to trade in something else
  • Hedge funds to lose a lot of money
  • More retail investors buying this stock right now
  • A series of gamma squeezes
  • And, a highly potential short squeeze that can happen at any time

How many AMC shares should I buy?

If you’re planning on taking a position in AMC Entertainment set a budget for investing. Since the market is volatile at the moment, purchase shares incrementally.

The best time to buy a stock is when the share price has dipped. This will allow your investment to see gains when the stock price rises again.

Ladies and gentlemen, the last thing you want to do is to invest more than you can handle to lose. This advisory must be made.

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.

On another note: It would be wise to not invest more than you can afford to lose. In other words, invest money you would be okay with losing for simpler terms.

Another great Analyst covering AMC right now is Roensch Capital. They’re a little more analytical, but a trustworthy source nonetheless.


Everything is falling into place for AMC stock

Other YouTubers covering AMC in depth include Matt Kohrs, Max Maher, and Andrew Mo Money.

What’s cool about these YouTubers is that they all go on each others channels from time to time and do collaborations regarding DD. Trey and Roensch Capital are by far my favorite channels covering AMC.

I personally started following Trey’s Trades when he had about 10,000 subscribers. He’s nearing 300,000 now, and well deserved by the way.

But, if you want daily technical analysis on AMC, Roensch Capital is the channel for you.

Ignore the bogus headlines from The Motley Fool and other sources

AMC and r/wallstreetbets have been given lots of negative press from the likes of The Motley Fool and other sources; shaming the purchase of the stock.

The fool vs AMC

Fortunately we’ve been backed up by the real Wolf of Wall Street as well as Mark Cuban, Chance The Rapper, and other big names.

Influential outlets with powerful hedge fund partners (institutions who short the stock) have been attacking traders and investors by providing false information wherever they can.

What we’re seeing right now is that the big guys are losing money due to the price of shorted stocks going up. They will say and do whatever they can to divert the public from trading this stock.

My personal suggestion to you is to not let these sources intimidate you. Do your research to see how the stock price has been manipulated through bogus headlines and short-ladder attacks.

Not to mention, the complete halt of trading AMC stock by Robinhood. That’ll be another post for you.

Is Now a Good Time to Buy AMC Stock?

Is now a good time to buy AMC stock? Post by Franknez.com

AMC stock has had a crazy play in the market thus far. Redditors and even Fox Business are determined it’s going to squeeze. More AMC stock news has arise with 100/100 short squeeze data. So, is now a good time to buy AMC stock?

franknez.com is now a good time to buy AMC stock?

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!

AMC has been the talk in the finance and investing world. Institutions such as Citadel were betting on AMC going bankrupt. That means no more movie theaters for all of human civilization. As if, right?

AMC is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy and has raided more than $2 billion dollars to keep them afloat until the end of 2022. This is not including the revenue they will be bringing in from ticket sales and food and beverage.

AMC Entertainment has also just recently acquired both The Grove and The Americana Cinemas. This is massive news for the AMC community as the company takes on bigger roles through business fundamentals.

AMC’s community has grown immensely

If you’re looking to get into a community that’s against a corrupted financial system then the AMC community is the perfect place for you to gain an insane amount of knowledge.

This community has uncovered stock market manipulation, received the attention of the media, and have some of the biggest influencers of our time backing it up.

Apes continue to buy AMC stock till this day. This momentum trading is neither bullish nor bearish. It’s apeish.

AMC’s short squeeze data

You can find loads of information about AMC’s short squeeze data here on the blog, on AMC stock Reddit, or on YouTube.

After several analysts took notice that the stock was being heavily shorted they began posting this information on AMC stock Reddit where it grabbed the attention of everyone else who missed GameStop’s gamma squeeze.

AMC stock is currently in the $33 range, give or take. It is costing short seller 1.10% interest to hold their positions, via Fintel. And although the short borrow fee has recently gone down, it costs retail investors nothing to hold the stock.

Shorts betting against the stock are also facing major scrutiny from brokers such as JP Morgan and Charles Schwab. These two broker firms have begun to raise margin requirements on both AMC and GME stock.

If hedge funds continue to overleverage their positions then they will be forced to close out their positions, initiating the mother of all short squeezes.

The biggest transfer of wealth in history

Redditors on r/wallstreetbets found out AMC was the #1 shorted stock via MarketWatch. At least until the hedge fund affiliate removed it from their list.

New retail investors be warned, you’re in for a ride. Hedge funds are playing dirty.

AMC stock #1 shorted stock
Franknez.com

Why did they do this? Perhaps to divert retail investors from buying the dips. See, when AMC squeezes it’s going to leave these hedge funds negative billions of dollars. All meanwhile retail investors make some rather life-changing wins.

It’s no doubt that when this happens we will be witnessing one of the largest transfers of wealth in history.

AMC was around $30 in 2016

People don’t tend to look far back enough to see that AMC was a healthy $30+ back in the booming party economy of 2016.

AMC stock buy

The stock price went as high as $35 in 2017. Here’s the link where you can check the price prior to the pandemic –> Link. We are not hitting all-time highs based solely on fundamentals.

The stock was falling little by little after 2017 due to the amount of debt AMC amassed, however; AMC has raised enough capital to start off clean in 2021.

The previous price point is worth mentioning because it gives us a glimpse into the threshold where shorts are losing a lot of money. Any price above $35 and hedge funds are really feeling it!

Adam Aron, CEO & President of AMC shares positive news
  • More than 90% of AMC movie theaters are now open as of March, 31st
  • AMC Entertainment has raised more than 2.2 billion dollars in cash
  • Vaccines and movie theater policies are making movie theaters safe
  • New movie titles are guaranteed to increase sales revenue
  • CEO and President Adam Aron expresses an optimistic future for AMC Entertainment

AMC stock is currently treading the $40 mark but has traded as high as $70. We’ve saw AMC’s share price in the beginning go up from $2.50 all the way to $20. We’ve seen a little of a selloff but this is normal. Investors will sometimes take small profits but continue to hold majority of their stake in the company.

The AMC community aren’t the ones causing red days. Short sellers continue to borrow shares to bring the price action down. Once retail investors manage to bring the price above $80 it’s game over for hedge funds.

$80 will lead to $100, $200, and eventually trigger a short squeeze.

Read: AMC stock price to $100 per share soon?

Will AMC squeeze?

Fox Business AMC strong chance of a short squeeze

The probabilities of AMC squeezing are rather high. The stock is heavily shorted.

The #1 reason why AMC will see a short squeeze is because shorts have not closed their positions.

And unfortunately for them it’s a lose-lose situation. We suggest they close where AMC is consolidating before it begins to rise again and see new levels of resistance; where at this point there’s no going back.

Short-sellers, take your loses now before they’re greater down the road.

So, is now a good time to buy AMC stock?

Absolutely. AMC stock is a ticking rocket ship waiting to take-off.

With theaters reopening, more and more institutions loading up on shares, and vaccines out to the public, AMC is a great buy with our without a short squeeze.

Why Hasn’t AMC Squeezed Yet? (The Truth)

Why hasn't AMC squeezed yet?
Keep hodling apes, your time is coming

Retail investors have been diamond-handing AMC stock for quite some time now. Massive props to those of you who have been holding since AMC’s gamma squeeze as of late January. You guys have seen it all by now. The gains, the short ladder attacks, the manipulation in the media and so on. So, why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

After all, we deserve an explanation. With so much DD out on YouTube and Reddit, some answers just aren’t being answered. Luckily, extensive research is done here to provide you with value you won’t find anywhere else.

Here’s what we know.

franknez.com why hasn't AMC squeezed yet?

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!

why hasn't AMC squeezed yet?

AMC Entertainment is after all one of the most heavily shorted companies in the market. So why hasn’t this stock shot up to the moon yet!?!

Shorts and hedge funds alike continue to lose money every day they hold. Shouldn’t they be covering by now?

More and more institutional buyers are bulking up on the stock, retail investors continue to hold and buy the dip, so what are we missing?

For one, let’s start with volume

Stock Volume needs to be high for a short squeeze

AMC’s market volume hasn’t been as high as we need it to be if we’re to see a short squeeze. Although, we’re finally beginning to see volume surpass 300 million. We’ve also seen it go as high as 700 million.

The market is going to need big volume to come in so we can see this price action really move. Well, how much volume do we need for AMC to squeeze?

The highest volume we’ve seen so (post gamma squeeze) was back in February where the volume reached over 400 million, until recently. In June we saw a surge of new retail investors buy AMC stock and volume reached around 700 million. The volume will need to be well over this amount.

Trey’s Trades has mentioned the perfect squeeze setup will require the volume to sit around 600 million plus. Some DD on Reddit has shown a squeeze will most likely occur in the billion volume mark.

Low volume = consolidation

low volume = consolidation

We’ve been seeing this with AMC until now. The stock has held up really well consolidating in the $40-$50. This level of support is indicating investors are mainly holding their positions. Retail investors will need to continue to add to their positions and project bullish sentiment if they want to see the price action continue to move up.

We saw AMC reach $70 when the volume surged back in June. It has since come down due to heavy short ladder attacks. Short sellers have been borrowing millions of shares to short AMC stock.

And while new retail investors are buying the stock during the dips, these ladder attacks on upticks have kept us consolidating.

Is consolidation in a stock bad?

Not at all. Consolidation is just a sign a particular stock has found a level of support and has developed strength.

Driving the price action up could force short-sellers to close their positions; however, a new pattern has risen.

According to Benzinga, “Volume in AMC’s stock has been declining, especially in terms of bearish volume, which indicates the stock is running out of sellers. This pattern is often seen before eventual large upward swings in a stock.”

Shorts still need to cover their positions

AMC money investing

Shorts haven’t covered their positions which means they’re holding just like retail investors are. The only difference is they’re paying an interest fee until they close their positions.

It costs nothing to hold AMC for the retail investor but it’s costing shorts and hedge funds money every single day.

Moral of the story? Hold until shorts can no longer afford to pay the interest. Yup, that’s really all there is to it. Keep living you day to day life. When AMC squeezes, you will hear about it.

The short borrow fee has been relatively low

Low borrow fee rate means no squeeze

Now, unfortunately the short borrow fee for shorts has been relatively low the past several weeks. At least according to Fintel.

This just means the fees aren’t hurting shorts too bad from the interest right now, although they continue to lose millions with every passing day.

AMC short borrow fee

Shorts continue to bet against AMC in efforts to bankrupt the company but the company is actually doing great right now.

Yup, although bankruptcy is officially no longer on the table.. And all movie theaters are now open.. and AMC Entertainment is bringing in huge revenue from new movie titles..

Yeah, I don’t understand their logic either.

This interest fee really doesn’t affect retail investors. Whether it’s low or high it’s costing hedge funds money. And at some point compound interest will really be hitting them hard.

It would be in shorts best interest to close their positions now while their fee is still low, and the stock price is around the mid $40 range. Because as soon as the stock price goes back up and so does the borrow fee rate, they’ll wish they had closed sooner.

Read: When do shorts have to cover their positions (AMC)

Wanda caused more shares to float into the market (ARCHIVE)

This information was what older apes experienced months back and will be included in this article for record purposes only.

One of the reasons why AMC didn’t squeeze months back was due to Wanda’s continues selloffs every time the stock would come near $14. This slowed the growth process significantly. Here’s how it happened.

With Wanda converting class B shares to class A shares, it essentially put more shares out into the market. This happened quite some time ago (early this year) but it’s worth mentioning because it goes back to volume. This is previous news though and Wanda no longer has a position in AMC due to foreign policies.

Key: Retail investors will need volume in order to squeeze shorts out of their positions.

Wanda Group had fueled red days (ARCHIVE)

Wanda is a group based in China who has been AMC Entertainment’s biggest shareholder for quite some time.

Unfortunately, Wanda had taken profits every time AMC’s stock rose to $14. This was usually seen as a major selloff in the market. CEO and President of AMC, Adam Aron explained in a recent interview with Trey’s Trades the cause for this. China’s government has a policy that requires international investors in China to focus their investments domestically to fuel their economy.

According to Adam Aron, Wanda is still a great partner and doesn’t believe the sell has anything to do with Wanda’s sentiment or believe in the company.

As of today, retail investors now hold majority of the float and Wanda no longer the large shareholder it was in AMC. This gives retail investors more control.

Stock market manipulation

Something incredible is unraveling here. Something very bad.

And although it’s bad, this means it’s also time for change. This entire journey with AMC and GameStop has allowed very intelligent people to uncover data that was never meant to be uncovered.

It’s only a matter of time before this data and DD get into the hands of writers looking to document this historic event occurring before our eyes.

One of AMC’s biggest reasons why it hasn’t squeezed is due to the heavy manipulation that’s been occurring for many months now. Nonetheless, AMC has moved up from $5 to the mid $40. Despite hedge funds cheating, retail investors keep winning.

It’s going to take continuous patience from retail investors in order to squeeze shorts out of their positions.

Read: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

Hedge funds pay the price

stock market manipulation
Melvin Capital suffers 49% loss their first quarter of 2021

Melvin Capital, a hedge fund who shorts both AMC and GameStop stock has reportedly suffered a 49% loss its first quarter.

The reason being is they have not closed their short positions although in a recent statement they advised they had. This hedge fund along with short-sellers are losing money every day due to the short borrow fee continuously increasing.

Short sellers are sitting on billions of dollar loses, via REUTERS. If short positions were covered, both AMC and GME would have come into an immense amount of gains just from this one hedge fund buying back several millions of shares.

Mudrick Capital

Mudrick Capital is another sleezy hedge fund that has been very well documented on FrankNez for its dishonest play. Laura Stine and I collaborated on publishing this piece from when Mudrick Capital met AMC and departed with AMC.

Laura captured the entire timeline perfectly and provides the community with insight as to how we are where we are today.

Read: Hedging against America: The Mudrick short report

Short-ladder attacks

Retail investors started digging into the manipulation as AMC’s share price continuously got ladder-attacked. Shorts use this strategy as a means to drive the price down as the stock moves up.

Redditors have discovered which platforms are owned or partners of Melvin Capital and Citadel. We’ve seen manipulation through bogus headlines trying to divert the public from buying a heavily shorted stock. MarketWatch, who is owned by Melvin Capital and Citadel, took to eliminating AMC from their #1 place on the most shorted stock list in the market back in February.

Citadel also owns The Fool which has been publishing lies for many months now.

This only urged more people do further dig in. We’ve found the unethical use of naked shares, which are essentially ‘fairy stocks’. They don’t exist but are traded and shorted otherwise. These are also known as ‘I owe you’s’.

In a world post squeeze, these financial platforms will no longer be trusted by the general public.

A house of cards, r/superstonks (Reddit post)

A Redditor just posted an insane amount of DD on Reddit. This long form post discuses the transition from paper filled orders to the use of computers going all the way back to the mid to late 80s.

The post reveals the beginning of issuing naked shares. We’re also learning that a lot of transaction are being held by the actual institutions that are shorting these stocks.

Robinhood routes more than half of it’s customers to Citadel. This information has now been disclosed via the Washington Post.

You can read the full Reddit post here.

Trey’s Trades does a quick breakdown on this DD as well. The video is embedded for your viewing pleasure.

With all this in mind, manipulation in the stock market has been able to keep AMC’s share price consolidating in the $40-$50 range thus far.

You can read more on how hedge funds manipulate the stock market to better understand why we haven’t seen an AMC short squeeze yet. Because this DD is so relevant, it will also be included in that post for new readers to see.

Final verdict

Regardless of the manipulation going on surrounding AMC’s squeeze, I strongly believe retail investors should stay the course if they are to see life changing results in the market. The price has moved up significantly! Once AMC’s stock price hits $80 we’ll begin to see $100 easily and beyond.

When a community rises and people stick together, real change is inevitable. With so much information coming to light, it’s only a matter of time that the tables are turned and justice is served.

Additionally, retail investors are winning right now. Shorts and hedge funds are losing money every day. More malpractice is being discovered and publicly shared. A lot of the analysis circulating AMC is pointing to a nasty nasty squeeze. Continue to stay positive and share positive and enlightening news.

AMC news and squeeze facts

  • AMC was on FOX Business ‘high squeeze potential list’
  • Movie theaters are now open everywhere
  • Godzilla vs. Kong secured $9.6 million in tickets on its opening night. New titles are breaking records
  • AMC Entertainment has raised over 2.2 billion dollars in cash as of early this year and continue to earn revenue
AMC Ticket Short Squeeze

Bankruptcy is officially off the table according to Adam Aron, and new titles are making their way to AMC movie theaters. I’m personally bullish on the stock and see lots of organic growth potential.

Growth is what’s going to inevitably squeeze shorts out of their position.

Which Stock Should You Invest In? AMC or GME?

Which is the better buy? AMC or GME
AMC VS GME #diamondhands

Are you a new retail investor? Bookmark these investing tips from Frank Nez.

Are you suffering from FOMO (fear of missing out). While we’re not financial advisors, we are certainly pro opportunity. So, which meme stock should you invest in? AMC or GME? And, is it too late to invest in either of them?

Let me walk you through the facts so you can decide which is the better buy between the two.

franknez.com should you buy AMC or GME?

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

Before we get started it is very important to mention that both these stocks are currently very volatile.

It is suggested that all financial decision is made based upon your own due diligence. GME stock has seen incredible gains in the past two months and analysts are determined AMC is going to have a similar run, if not bigger.

AMC & GME Short Share Volume

Here are the short share volume numbers as of June 7th, 2021.

  • AMC Short Share Volume: 500,000 (via. Fintel)
  • GME Short Share Volume: 350,000 shares (via. Fintel)

Now, this is only Fintel so take it with a grain of salt.

Why is this important?

The number of short shares available represents the number of shares that have yet to be covered by short-investors or hedge funds.

Short-investors and hedge funds alike are betting on both AMC and GME to completely fail. This means they don’t believe AMC or GME (GameStop) can innovate as businesses to thrive in the marketplace.

The r/wallstreetbets community and millions of people would beg to differ. This is why AMC and GME have take the stock market by a storm.

What happens when shorts close/cover their positions?

Both AMC and GME are going up in share price. When short-sellers cover their positions at a higher share price than they borrowed the share, they lose money.

Because they bought a share at a higher price, the stock price continues to go up as long as retail investors hold their positions. This essentially creates a supply and demand scenario between short sellers and retail investors.

What happens if shorts keep holding and don’t cover their positions?

Short-sellers can only hold for so long. See, they eventually have to pay an interest on the shares they borrowed.

Here are the current short interest for both AMC and GME stock (June 3rd, 2021):

These change from time to time

As you can see, AMC has a bigger interest rate than GME at the moment. This means short-sellers are paying a much larger fee to short AMC stock.

This borrow rate fee increases as the demand for the stock rises.

Why is this important to the retail investor?

The borrow fee interest pressures short sellers to close their positions before they pay bigger and bigger fees for borrowing AMC and GME shares.

When a short-seller closes their position higher than they borrowed the share for, they lose money. The retail investor then continues to see a rise in share price. This ladies and gentlemen is where retail investors begin to experience a series of gamma squeezes before a short squeeze.

What’s the difference between a gamma squeeze and a short squeeze?

A gamma squeeze usually occurs when retail investors bet on the price of a stock such as AMC or GME to go up. Share price will then increase due to specified call options or contracts.

A short squeeze essentially occurs when a heavily shorted stock increases in value and short-sellers must cover their positions.

AMC and GME short squeeze

AMC Short Squeeze

AMC Short Squeeze

We saw a gamma squeeze from AMC when the stock price shot up to about $20 per share. This was mainly due to retail investors buying call options.

We have not seen a short squeeze from AMC just yet. This is why AMC stock is a very popular choice for people who missed out on GameStop the first run.

AMC’s share price is also significantly lower and more affordable to the average retail investor than that of GameStop. With more investors getting in on AMC, another gamma squeeze is on the horizon. If retail investors continue to hold their positions, a short squeeze is inevitable.

GME

GME Short Squeeze

GME Short Squeeze

GME experienced its gamma squeeze right before we saw it short squeeze all the way up to $500. Its gamma squeeze consisted of perpetual gains beginning around the $20 mark all the way up to $100 before it squeezed and saw sharp gains.

After GME squeezed, it hovered around $40. We recently saw another GME gamma squeeze sending it back up to the $100 range.

GME’s mastermind, Keith Gill AKA Roarking Kitty (deepf******value), has also mentioned doubling down on GameStop investment. You can find sources everywhere online.

Read: Will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again?

More institutions are buying and holding AMC than GME stock

We’re seeing more and more institutions such as Vanguard, BlackRock, and Charles Schwab continue to add and hold to their AMC positions (via. Nasdaq). As of May 21st, the top whales continue to add to their long positions.

AMC institutional buyers
AMC Institutional Buyers (as of 5/21)

GME on the other hand has seen quite some selloff from institutions. Which by the way is okay. Investors are simply closing profits with the gains they’ve seen from GME via. Nasdaq.

Innovation: AMC VS GME

While it’s hard to see how GME can innovate their retail stores, AMC doesn’t seem to have that problem.

I personally believe innovation has a strong influence in the decision-making process when investing in either AMC or GME.

GameStop can continue to sell to gamers online. We won’t see much change to their retail stores. AMC on the other hand can innovate with virtual reality but ultimately doesn’t have to since people are going to the movie theaters again.

Related: Why is AMC stock going up again?

If you’re a new retail investor looking to get into one of these stocks, AMC is more than likely your best bet.

The stock has a lot of upside potential.

  • AMC stock is currently affordable
  • The stock has not hit a short squeeze yet
  • It is one of the most shorted stocks in the market
  • The stocks market cap, volume, and short borrow fee keep increasing

GME stock is a good pick for current GME holders

If you’re currently holding GME it looks like you will continue to see volatility. You can take advantage by buying the dips and holding your positions.

If you didn’t cash out when GME peaked, there’s a probability you will get another chance if GME continues to stay in bullish territory. This of course is heavy speculation.

I want to ditch Robinhood – what other platform can I use?

Ditch Robinhood - invest in GME and AMC with another platform
Ditch Robing-Hood: Invest in GME and AMC using another platform

If you’re looking to ditch Robinhood, we strongly suggest switching to a real broker account.

Robinhood tarnished GameStop momentum by preventing retail investors from buying more stock.

I recommend: Vanguard –> Link

I’ve also published a post on how to invest in the stock market step by step where I include a list of other platforms you can check out here.

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

So, which is the better buy? AMC or GME?

If you’re looking to get into an affordable stock that has a high potential of squeezing, then AMC will be your best bet. It’s fundamentals also determine this stock is a good long-term buy.

Although GME’s hype can still cause a potential squeeze in the future, it’s still much lower than AMC’s probability. If you have a position in GME then I recommend holding and taking any gains you can. Otherwise, keep holding if you love the company.

Whether you go for AMC or GME stock, you should always invest in a company you truly love and believe in. Think long-term for the most part. If you can make some money short-term, even more power to you.

How to Successfully Invest in AMC Stock

How to Successfully Invest in AMC Stock
#AMC #AMCtothemoon #DiamondHands

Retail investors are strategizing a way to short squeeze AMC stock. What does this mean? It means hedge funds lose billions of dollars and the average investor has the potential to cash in life-changing numbers.

For the new retail investor that cut their loses as the stock was going down, well you might have just gotten off at the wrong train stop.

Forums are beginning to shed paper hands, or newbie retail investors who cut their loses before the objective, or who took early profits of AMC.

So, how are retail investors successfully investing in AMC stock and why has the stock hit a new level of support? Here’s what we do know.

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 stared!

Why AMC? What’s so special about this stock?

AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market. This means hedge funds and short-sellers are betting on AMC Entertainment to completely vanish from the face of the earth.

However, r/wallstreetbets took the opportunity to pump the price action by doing exactly what Keith Gill did with GameStop (GME).

AMC was on StockMarket’s #1 place for the most shorted stock in the market but it seems they’ve taken it down for some strange reason.

Read: How Do Hedge Funds Manipulate The Stock Market

AMC number one shorted stock in the market
Here’s the screenshot prior to the complete obliteration of the stock on the list.. retail investors smell foul play.

In the midst of financial history

What we’re experiencing today ladies and gentlemen is a financial war between retail investors and short sellers.

Investing in AMC has uncovered just how corrupt our financial system is. With this being said, hedge funds will no longer be able to get bailed if retail investors win this war.

This is exactly why hedge fund partners are doing everything they can to steer the masses from investing in AMC. We’re certain you’ve seen bogus headlines everywhere online.

What are retail investors doing that’s keeping AMC afloat?

AMC experienced a gamma squeeze when it hit $20 per share back in late January where it gradually plunged back down and met a level of resistance at $5 per share.

Although we’ve recently seen AMC share rise up to $11 after hours, it looks like it has established a second level of resistance at $8 per share. What we’re seeing here are steps of resistance that are gradually increasing.

So, how are retail investors pulling this off?

Easy, retail investors continue to hold their positions. They are not selling and they are even buying the dips.

Short-ladder attacks from shorts might have caused new retail investors to sell early, but not the majority. The majority of retail investors holding AMC positions are looking to squeeze the shorts out of their positions.

And it’s only a matter of time before short-sellers close their positions due to the accruing interest on borrowing AMC shares.

Is this what’s going to cause an AMC short squeeze?

AMC short squeeze

Absolutely. Retail investors obtained all the knowledge they need to make a short squeeze like GameStop’s possible.

The answer to how to successfully invest in AMC? Buy the dip (market on red) and hold your position (hold the stock).

How high can AMC share price go up to?

Financial experts are speculating the stock price can go as high as the shareholder demands.

In fact, hedge funds can end up going bankrupt due to two major plays. 1. the accumulating interest on the borrowed shares and 2. retail investors conviction to hold the stock.

This means that if you own AMC stock and continue to hold throughout the short-term loses and gains, you now hold a stock that short-sellers eventually need to buy back to cover their positions.

And guess what? If you don’t want to sell it to them for $15 that’s okay. The price will go up and if you decide you don’t want to sell it for $50, that’s fine too.

This is how retail investors are successfully investing in AMC. They’re buying the dips and continuing to hold their positions until the stock price continuously experiences gains and meets new levels of support.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

If you’re like most retail investors who are speculating the stock price to rise anywhere from $100-$1,000+ then it is not too late to get in on AMC.

See, retail investors holding AMC positions aren’t selling at the sight of $20 or even $50 per share. Their vision has to do with life-changing numbers, not a quick profit.

How soon will we see a short squeeze?

There are many speculations to when a short squeeze will occur.

Right now we know that AMC is the most shorted stock in the market and hedge funds don’t want people investing in it.

We also know that shorts will be covering their positions very soon due to the accruing interest on the shares they’ve borrowed. Depending on how many close their positions, retail investors can expect a series of gamma squeezes that lead to the inevitable short squeeze.

Short’s can hold their positions as long as they want to so we can’t say for sure when any sort of squeeze will happen. However, the borrow fee interest on shares they’ve borrowed is steadily increasing. In a month we’ve seen this interest go up from 3% to a whopping 9%!

So they’re holding alright.

Retail investors will need to be patient if they are to see a full on squeeze like that of GameStop’s, if not bigger.

Why is AMC Share Price Going Down?

AMC Entertainment stock has seen more than 373% gains since January and its market cap is currently hovering slightly below $4.1 billion. We’re seeing the stock slide today after seeing some gains. Retail investors might be asking, “why is AMC share price going down”?

Good news is retail investors don’t have to panic. Here are a few reasons why AMC Entertainment has been on sale.

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where we write about personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and keep you posted on trending investing news.

#1. AMC’s CEO seeks approval to potentially issue more stock

Adam Aron on CNBC

AMC’s CEO and President Adam Aron is asking its shareholders for approval on issuing 500 million more AMC shares.

This caused AMC’s stock price to slide because the dilution would mean short-term turmoil for the stock.

Why does AMC want to issue more shares?

Approving the issue of 500 million shares will allow AMC Entertainment to payoff what debt they have left much quicker.

If approved, it wouldn’t mean they issue all 500 million shares at once. It would grant them with the flexibility to grant them when needed.

What if we don’t approve the issue of 500 million more shares?

This isn’t a make or break for AMC. AMC Entertainment simply wants a backup plan should another catastrophic event occur again that would affect the business.

If shareholders don’t approve this, AMC will simply have to pay it’s dues as they profit instead of all at once. In other words, issuing 500 million shares provides the business with leverage.

What will happen if this is approved?

If the issue of 500 million additional shares is approved then AMC’s share price could potentially go down.

AMC entertainment will have money to payoff any small debt they have leftover quickly, and it will benefit the business long-term.

What does an AMC dilution mean for a short squeeze?

At the moment retail investors are holding real AMC shares. Shorts need to buy back these shares. By keeping the supply low, retail investors can demand the price of a share.

  1. A dilution of AMC stock would not work in the retail investors favor, short-term.
  2. If more shares are issued, AMC stock becomes more of a long-term investment but has lots of positive potential.

A dilution would increase the number of shares and lower the share price when granted. With more shares available in the market, institutions who traded naked shares could cover their butts instead of buying from the retail investor.

As you can tell, there are both PROS and CONS to a dilution.

So, can AMC still squeeze with a dilution?

If a dilution occurs, shorts could take this opportunity to cover their positions at a lower price which would still cause a short squeeze.

Shorts can no longer drive AMC Entertainment to the ground. They’ll have to cover with or without a dilution.

Regardless of what Adam Aron said on an interview with Trey’s Trades, some people are still iffy about it.

#2. AMC has had a small selloff

Another reason why AMC shares have slid is because AMC is having a small selloff, but this is completely normal. Internal shareholders will usually sell a small portion of their shares to cash in profits on the way up.

Small retail investors waiting on a short squeeze should continue to hold their positions. Selloffs on the way up is something mainly individuals with a lot of access are able to do but should not scare retail investors.

Warner Bros. said Thursday that “Godzilla vs. Kong” secured $9.6 million in ticket sales on its opening night. This has been a record debut for the pandemic.

Adam Aron noted that the attendance for the opening in North America was 10 times what it has been so far in 2021.

Very positive news for AMC Entertainment.

#3. Short-ladder attacks

With the short borrow fee going up for short sellers, it’s no surprise to see them trying to drive AMC’s share price lower.

You can tell a short attack is occurring by the patterns on a stock chart. Usually when the stock moves up you’ll see it come down vigorously until you see the pattern of a ladder going downwards.

This sort of attack is caused by shorts in efforts to prevent the stock from going higher.

So, should retail investors be worried?

Not at all. AMC Entertainment as a business is very bullish. They’re taking action to scale the company in the right direction.

Whether the market is red or green, AMC’s revenue is growing and a lot of positivity is flowing their way.

We’re personally excited for new titles coming out soon.
