Citi, Goldman, Extend AMC’s Covenant Waiver to 2024: What it Means

AMC Covenant Waiver
Market News Today: Banks extend AMC’s covenant waiver to 2024.

CEO Adam Aron said Citi, Goldman Sachs, and Credit Suisse have extended AMC’s covenant waiver to March 31st of 2024.

“This is a reflection of AMC’s recovery being well under way… a vote of confidence in AMC by our banks that we much welcome. Thank you Citi, Goldman, and Credit Suisse”, said AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) CEO Adam Aron on Wednesday.

So, what exactly is a covenant waiver extension and what does this mean for AMC Entertainment?

What is a Covenant Waiver?

A covenant waiver is when a lender temporarily forgives a borrower’s breach of a loan covenant.

In AMC’s case, the lenders are Citi, Goldman Sachs, and Credit Suisse.

Debt covenants are restrictions that lenders (creditors, debt holders, investors) put on lending agreements to limit the actions of the borrower (debtor), AMC Entertainment.

In other words, debt covenants are agreements between a company (AMC) and its lenders (Citi, Goldman, Credit Suisse) that the company will operate within certain rules set by the lenders.

Should a borrower violate a covenant, such as not maintaining a certain interest coverage ratio or engaging in unpermitted business activities, it may constitute a loan default, per The Balance.

Financial Covenants Explained

Covenant requirements are conditions the borrower must regularly meet throughout the term to demonstrate their creditworthiness to the lender.

Lenders frequently use certain financial tests that serve as indicators of the borrower’s repayment ability.

Failure to meet these tests violates the covenant and constitutes loan default.

In AMC Entertainment’s case, lenders have waived, or forgiven AMC’s breach of contract, per their loan covenant and extended it to March 31st 2024.

What Does This Mean for AMC Entertainment?

AMC News today.

For AMC Entertainment, a covenant waiver will allow the business to run operations under its debt contracts with Citi, Goldman Sachs, and Credit Suisse until 2024.

If the company fails to meet its debt obligations, or financial covenant requirements, then the loans are subject to default.

This puts AMC Entertainment in a tricky position in terms of what they can and cannot do or say.

Which also explains why the CEO cannot raise awareness of the manipulative shorting of the company stock.

It’s very likely that speaking out on such topics may violate these covenant agreements.

Some retail investors have scrutinized Adam Aron for not speaking out on naked shorts like other CEO’s are doing today.

But this news may provide shareholders with more perspective on why that is.

Is AMC Entertainment Being Held Hostage by Lenders?

Citigroup currently holds call options representing 0 of underlying shares valued at $0 USD and put options representing 55,000 of underlying shares valued at $383,000 USD.

Source: Fintel.

The bank has been selling shares while playing put options in order to profit from the drops they’re triggering in the market.

As of November 7th, 2022, Citigroup has dropped AMC’s price target from $3.13 per share to $1.20 per share and used the media to promote the price target.

Just a month prior to Citi’s price hit, Credit Suisse said in October AMC shares are worth less than $1.

The banks are making their money which means it’s going to be up to the company and shareholders to prove the Wall Street short thesis wrong.

But I’m interested in hearing your thoughts.

Investors Say CEOs Should Fight Naked Short Selling Like GNS

GNS CEO Roger Hamilton
GNS CEO Roger Hamilton – Market News Today.

“They’re predators. They’re doing something illegal, and we want it to stop”, says GNS CEO Roger Hamilton.

The Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Genius Group Limited (NYSE American: GNS), a leading entrepreneur edtech and education group, approved at a meeting of the Board held on Wednesday 18th January 2023, an action plan to address illegal short selling of its stock.

This action plan includes creating a Board-led ‘Illegal Trading Task Force’ to actively pursue all possible actions together with the regulators in their discovery and prosecution of persons engaging in market manipulation involving the ordinary shares of Genius Group.

This Task Force will be led by Timothy Murphy, a Genius Group Director and former Deputy Director of the F.B.I., Richard Berman, also a Genius Group Director and chair of the Company’s Audit Committee, and Roger Hamilton, the CEO of Genius Group.

The Company has been in communication with government regulatory authorities and is sharing information with these authorities to assist them.

Retail investors on social media are supporting Genius Group’s CEO Roger Hamilton in his efforts to expose and bring down manipulative short selling.

The retail community has voiced their concerns with dark pool trading, OTC trading, and naked short selling in prominent companies such as AMC Entertainment, GameStop, Mullen Automotive, Biora Therapeutics, Meta Materials, and many more.

“It’s like being robbed in a library, but you can’t shout ‘Thief!’ because there are ‘Silence, please’ signs everywhere.” – Roger Hamilton, CEO of Genius Group Limited.

Speaking Out on Naked Short Selling

Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne spoke out against naked short selling in 2007 but was ridiculed and eventually investigated himself by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Elon Musk has commented on not just the SEC but has said at one point Tesla was the most shorted company in the market.

In a CNBC exclusive, Elon Musk says hedge funds have used short selling and complex derivatives to take advantage of retail investors.

Something retail investors who purchased so called ‘meme stocks’ in 2021 found out very easily.

“Hedge funds tank stocks using ‘short and distort’“, says the Tesla CEO.

A tactic where hedge funds impose their influence on corporate media such as The Fool, Wall Street Journal, and MarketWatch to scare people out of their money, then short the stock to capitalize on selloffs.

John Brda (Torchlight, MMTLP) talks naked short selling with GNS CEO Roger Hamilton.

Is Roger Hamilton the new voice for retail?

The retail community certainly seems to think so.

Unlike Patrick Byrne, who unfortunately didn’t have the massive support he deserved, Roger Hamilton has many large retail communities made up of millions of people supporting the cause.

Social media has allowed retail investors to voice their opinions and concerns regarding the manipulation of their favorite companies.

Citizen journalism platforms, such as FrankNez and Rebel News have helped spread awareness surrounding people’s concerns.

Should New Regulators Be Put in Place?

Retail investors are convinced FINRA, the DTCC, and the SEC are complicit in the market manipulation that occurs in these companies.

Citadel’s Global Head of Operations, David Inggs, has a board seat at the DTCC.

On January 28th, 2021, The DTCC waived $9.7 billion of collateral deposit, limiting institutional losses and limiting retail profits during the ‘meme stock’ frenzy.

The organization allowed several naked shares to flood the market prior to the massive jump in share prices only to help financial institutions in the end.

On the other end, out of the four commissioners in the SEC who voted, Hester Peirce was the only one who voted no on market transparency.

Hester Peirce is tied to a lobbyist group of anti-regulators.

The Intercept wrote a piece on Hester Peirce in 2015 titled, “SEC Nominee To Oversee Wall Street Works At Think Tank Dedicated To Blocking Regulation.”

And according to the research, Hester Peirce received 98% of her salary from the Mercatus Center, a “think tank” that provides an academic façade to a radical anti-regulatory agenda.

What does the GNS CEO have to say about our regulators?

The company is fighting back “because we want this to stop,” Hamilton told MarketWatch. “They’re taking value away from our shareholders. They’re predators. They’re doing something illegal, and we want it to stop, whether that means getting regulators to enforce existing regulations or put new ones in place.”

Should more companies fight naked short selling like GNS CEO Roger Hamilton?

Wall Street Naked Shorts
Wall Street Naked Shorts – Franknez.com.

GNS CEO Roger Hamilton is bringing the fight to Wall Street and regulators.

The retail community has his back, the question is, will other CEOs step in?

Many shareholders in the AMC community have urged the company’s CEO Adam Aron to speak out against the illicit activities occurring in the company stock.

The CEO has mocked short sellers but hasn’t taken an activist stance, yet.

Should more companies fight naked short selling?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

PELOSI Act Will Ban Lawmakers from Trading Stocks

Market News: What is the PELOSI Act?
Market News: What is the PELOSI Act?

Senator Josh Hawley reintroduced the ‘Pelosi Act’, a bill to ban lawmakers from trading in the stock market.

The bill would prohibit members of Congress and their spouses from holding or trading individual stocks.

The bill will require members found in violation to return their profits to American taxpayers.

“For too long, politicians in Washington have taken advantage of the economic system they write the rules for, turning profits for themselves at the expense of the American people.

As members of Congress, both Senators and Representatives are tasked with providing oversight of the same companies they invest in, yet they continually buy and sell stocks, outperforming the market time and again,” said Senator Hawley.

“While Wall Street and Big Tech work hand-in-hand with elected officials to enrich each other, hardworking Americans pay the price.

The solution is clear: we must immediately and permanently ban all members of Congress from trading stocks.”

What is the PELOSI Act?

Nancy Pelosi Insider Trading
Nancy Pelosi accused by the retail community of insider trading.

The PELOSI Act will:

  • Prohibit members of Congress and their spouses from holding, acquiring, or selling stocks or equivalent economic interests during their tenure in elected office. Any holdings in diversified mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, or U.S. Treasury bonds are exempt from the prohibition.
     
  • Give members of Congress and their spouses six months, upon assuming office, to divest any prohibited holdings or place those holdings in a blind trust for the remainder of their tenure in office.
     
  • Ensure members or their spouses forfeit any investment profits to the American people via the U.S. Treasury if they are found to be in violation if the Act. Members who violate the requirements will also lose the ability to deduct the losses of those investments on their income taxes. The ethics committees of Congress may levy additional fines and will publicize violations.
     
  • Require that after two years of the Act’s implementation, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) will conduct an audit of members’ compliance with the Act.

The public has argued that Nanci Pelosi’s incredibly fast-growing stock portfolio has been the result of insider trading.

Pelosi has claimed that the portfolio is her husband’s, but major conflicts of interest arise when she has backdoor information hidden from the average investor.

Retail investors are supporting the PELOSI act, stating that the congresswoman is abusing her power.

Should lawmakers be banned from trading the stock market?

AMC Stock is Up +40% This Year: What it Means for Shorts

Daily Market News: AMC stock news, updates + more.
Daily Market News: AMC stock news, updates + more.

AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) stock is up more than +40% this year-to-date.

New developments this year may send share prices rising throughout 2023.

Streaming giants have figured out that the theatrical experience is key to their long-term success.

AMC Entertainment CEO Adam Aron praised Disney for scheduling Stephen King’s ‘The Boogeyman’ to be released theatrically on June 2nd, 2023.

The film was originally planned to be released on the streaming service Hulu.

“Theatres beat streamers! We salute producer 21Laps and our friends at Disney for this decision. The Boogeyman, a Stephen King adaption, was made for Hulu. But it tested so well, Disney is releasing it theatrically instead. Thank you Bob Iger, Alan Bergman, Justin, Tony, and Ken,” said Adam Aron on Twitter.

On the other end, CNBC says Netflix left $200 million on the table for not leaving Daniel Craig’s ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ in theatres longer.

So, what does this say about the Wall Street short thesis that movie theatres are dead?

Here’s the latest AMC Entertainment stock market news.

Online Streaming Might Not Be What Wall Street Hoped For

AMC online streaming news - Netflix falls short.
AMC online streaming news – Netflix falls short.

In October, AMC announced its first ever Netflix showing in 200 theatres.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery starring Daniel Craig was released in the U.S. as well as the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, and Spain.

CEO Adam Aron stated on Twitter that success here could lead to more Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) movies at AMC.

The film earned $15 million at the box office but CNBC says the showing could have made $200 million if it had been kept in theatres longer.

The sequel to Johnson’s popular “Knives Out” opened in nearly 700 theaters, the largest release of any Netflix original film to date, 200 of which were AMC Entertainment theatres.

Unfortunately for the online streaming platform, hundreds of millions of dollars were left on the table.

Box office analysts say Glass Onion could have earned much higher earnings if Netflix had opted for a traditional wide release of 2,000 to 4,000 theaters.

What Are Experts Saying?

CNBC stated, “Netflix has backtracked on its previous policies, including by introducing an ad-supported subscription option, leading many to wonder whether the company should rethink its resistance to the traditional Hollywood movie release model as it looks for new ways to grow revenue.

What Does This Mean for Short Sellers?

Daily Market News by FrankNez - Will AMC go up again?
Daily Market News by FrankNez – Will AMC go up again?

For short sellers betting against the movie theatre company, it could mean severe losses if share prices were to skyrocket again.

AMC Entertainment stock is still heavily shorted, currently weighing in at 21.92% short interest (updated daily).

All it takes is for a few short sellers to begin closing their positions for other short sellers to follow suit.

This chain reaction could trigger an AMC short squeeze in 2023.

Amazon insiders told Bloomberg the retail giant plans to invest billions in the movie theatre industry, aiming to release 12-15 movies annually for theatrical release.

That number of releases puts Amazon on par with major studios such as Paramount Pictures.

CNBC stated that ‘while a $1 billion annual investment for film development is on the lower end of what major Hollywood studios spend each year, it’s a positive sign for the movie theater business.”

MULN Stock Call Options Destroy Number of Puts

Mullen Automotive Stock News Today
FrankNez News Today – MULN stock news and updates.

Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) stock call options have been dominating the number of put options in the market for the month of January.

Talks of a MULN short squeeze have surfaced as analysts give Mullen Automotive stock a +7,000% price projection in the next 12-month period.

MULN shares have dropped since it peaked around $0.44 two weeks ago after the company revealed a number of risk factors that caused shares to tumble.

However, the amount of call options in the market compared to put options suggest investors remain bullish on where prices are headed.

Volume Distribution – MULN Stock Webull

On Tuesday, we’re seeing Mullen Automotive has 43.21K total call options versus only 290 put options (1:30hr prior to closing bell).

MULN Stock Webull Options Volume Distribution - Franknez.com.
MULN Stock Webull Options Volume Distribution – Franknez.com.

MULN stock call option volume went as high as 194K during the first week of January.

That same day, put options weighed in lightly at 12.7K compared to the latter.

However, shares have come down from its bull run earlier in January.

Shareholders suspect naked shorts are at work, keeping shares from rising despite the heavy demand.

MULN has a current short interest of 13.15% (updated daily).

This means the company is shorted despite majority of sentiment being bullish.

Heavy buying pressure will be the trigger MULN stock needs to create a disruption in the market.

Where is MULN Stock Going?

If MULN is able to break above $0.294 then shareholders can expect the stock to retest $0.30-0.31 per shares.

A break below $0.294 will send shares down to retest $0.28 and may go as low as $0.26.

Where is MULN stock headed? Franknez.com.
Where is MULN stock headed? Franknez.com.

If retail investors are able to build momentum through buying pressure, MULN shares will continue to rise.

Positive news may also trigger big buying pressure from institutional investors long on the company.

Today, out of 173 financial institutions investing in Mullen Automotive, only 1 is short with 172 being long, per Fintel.

In December alone, 18 financial institutions purchased shares of Mullen Automotive.

The consensus for Mullen Automotive today remains a strong ‘buy’.

What is Going on with AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE)?

what is happening with APE stock?
Market News Today: What is happening with APE stock?

AMC’s Preferred Equity (NYSE:APE) is up +50% this year-to-date after coming down more than -70% in the past year.

Talks have surfaced about a possible conversion of APE shares back to AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) common stock.

APE served as a liquidity tool to supply the movie theatre chain with the capital necessary to pay down its debt and raise cash for the business.

In October 2022, AMC reduced its debt load by $106 million and has extended its maturities until the year 2027.

The company capitalized on APE to cut some debt off the top before taking on new debt due in five years from now.

AMC has replaced $506 million due in 2023 with $400 million of new debt due in 2027.

The updated balance sheet is going to ensure the movie theatre chain company is able to grow while it slowly pays off its debt.

AMC Entertainment has reported positive earnings reports since 2021 when shareholders rescued the company from bankruptcy.

Today, it’s about maintaining that momentum to ensure the short thesis eventually changes.

Will APE Shares Go Up?

APE Stock Price Today - Yahoo Finance.
APE Stock Price Today – Yahoo Finance.

AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE) is up 50% this year-to-date.

The equity saw massive buying volume in the beginning of the new year which led to a great head start this year.

This type of buying pressure will continue to drive APE shares up in the future, that is unless majority of shareholders decide not to convert the equity into common shares of AMC stock.

Today, APE is trading around $1.80 and is up +2% in the past five trading days.

The equity had been named one of the most heavily shorted stock by Yahoo Finance in December of 2022, but the short interest has dropped to 5.40% (updated daily).

While there are still short sellers betting against the equity, AMC Entertainment has warned both retail investors of possible and significant losses due to volatility and the possibility of a short squeeze.

The forecast is ambitious without a doubt, but the company shows great signs of scalable growth both in the near- and long-term future.

Mullen Automotive recently partnered with Loop Global to deploy EV charging solutions, including a public DC fast charging network and residential offerings.

The company is also preparing for 3 commercial product launches in 2023 after signing with their first U.S dealer partner, RMA Group.

In early December, the company also announced Former General Motors Government Sales Leader Ronald Dixon will be leading Mullen’s EV charge for U.S government fleet sales.

Mullen Automotive is expected to grow substantially in 2023.

Investors Remain Bullish on MULN Stocktwits Forum

Retail investors on the MULN Stocktwits forum and other social media platforms are preparing to collect massive gains as technicals align with upcoming bullish momentum.

The stock closed at $0.33 on Wednesday (1/11) after surging +4.35% from its previous trading day.

Mullen Automotive had a market capitalization of $437.7 million at the end of December 2022 but has increased its market cap to $524.9 million in only the second trading day of 2023.

If the company’s market cap continues to grow this rapidly then retail investors will begin to see exponential growth in their investment.

Call options in MULN stock have also overwhelmingly taken over the number of put options contracts.

Stock Market News: What’s happening with MULN stock? Will MULN shares keep rising?

Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) stock shares rose +2.27% on Monday after a turbulent past few days last week.

The automotive stock surged to $0.44 before in January before retesting $0.28 and closing at $0.30 the start of the new week.

Retail investors have been buying the stock after analysts gave MULN stock a price target of $24.15.

The current analyst consensus is a strong buy, but shares fell after Mullen Automotive submitted its Form 10-K on Friday the 13th, revealing a number of risk factors.

Will Mullen Automotive stock recover?

Here’s what’s happening with MULN stock right now.

MULN Call Options Continue to Dominate Put Options

Even as MULN shares make gains and slide in January, we see that MULN call options continue to dominate the number of put options in the market.

Many institutions are going long on Mullen Automotive stock.

Out of 173 financial institutions investing in Mullen Automotive, only 1 is short with 172 being long, per Fintel.

Still, the company is a target for short seller, per Ortex figures (updated daily).

Shareholders even suggest naked shorting is fueling lower share prices and preventing shares from rising based on retail and institutional demand.

Fintel is also reporting a large percentage of MULN trades going to dark pools.

Approximately 46.16% of MULN trading is happening outside the lit exchange which equates to roughly 85.8 million shares per day.

Dark pool trading as unfortunate as it is, is a tool institutions have been using to gain an advantage over retail investors.

However, massive buying pressure in the end has always proven to play in retail’s favor.

GameStop Says 30% of Shareholders Have Registered Their Shares

Market News: At least 30% of GameStop shareholders have registered their shares.
Market News: At least 30% of GameStop shareholders have registered their shares.

GameStop says at least 30% of its shareholders have registered their shares with the Direct Registration System (DRS).

According to the filing, approximately 30% of GME’s float is registered equating, to 71.3 million shares.

The efforts from retail investors come as a means to prevent manipulative short seller attacks.

GME stock is trading at $21.66 on Monday with trading volume surpassing the company’s average volume of 5.1 million.

Shares of GameStop (NYSE:GME) are up +26% this year-to-date, a great start to the new year.

On Monday, GameStop shares have risen more than 11% intraday where shares rose to nearly $22.50.

GME’s short interest is currently sitting at 23.55% with approximately 95 million shares out on loan.

This means that despite DRS, the game retailer continues to be heavily shorted.

GameStop Ownership Structure

How much of GameStop’s float is owned by retail investors?

Nearly 70% of the float is owned by individual shareholders according to Vickers Stock Research.

This means nearly 40% of retail investors have not registered their GameStop shares through DRS.

Yet it’s very possible the percentage of GameStop shareholders who have registered their shares has grown in the past months.

GameStop’s Chair Ryan Cohen himself owns more than 12% of GME shares.

These are held through Ryan’s holding company RC Ventures, which Vickers considers to be Institutional ownership (12% on graph).

Is DRS working out for GameStop shareholders?

It very well could be, considering GME shares are up nearly +26% this year despite having a high short interest rate.

AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) stock on the other hand is up +44% this year despite DRS being significantly less popular within shareholders.

The movie theatre stock is also heavily shorted at 21.96%.

And according to AMC’s CEO, roughly 90% of shareholders own the float.

Where is GameStop headed in 2023?

GME stock has the potential to have a big year in 2023.

GameStop continues to be a popular company amongst retail investors, primarily due to the massive community of shareholders who are looking to squeeze short sellers again.

During the spark of the ‘meme stock’ frenzy, GameStop shares rose to $483 per share, a superior all-time high.

But shareholders are not convinced the stock is done running.

2023 opens up new possibilities for GameStop as e-commerce, NFTs, and Web 3.0 gaming continues to grow.

While the company may benefit from arming itself with more short-term capital, GameStop enters the new year with positive cash flow, an incredible start for the company as many continue to struggle.
