Ken Griffin Attacks: “Pension Plans Destroyed by Retail Investors”

Ken Griffin on Retail Investors
Market News: Ken Griffin on retail investors

Ken Griffin accused the retail community of destroying teacher’s pension plans by taking down Gabe Plotkin’s Melvin Capital.

Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that was short on ‘meme stocks’ holding a large position in GameStop.

The company is scheduled to shut down in June after it had suffered a 50% loss in 2021, and an additional 20.6% in the first quarter of 2022.

Sources say Melvin Capital has already begun to liquidate its positions to pay back investors in cash.

In this Bloomberg exclusive, Ken Griffin plays a role of the victim, defending Mr. Plotkin and the hedge fund whose mission it was to bankrupt GameStop.

Ken Griffin’s Citadel is also short on AMC Entertainment – the hedge fund lost billions last year betting against retail.

Let’s discuss it.

CNBC mourns the loss of Melvin Capital

CNBC says Melvin was one of the biggest victims from the meme stock frenzy last year due to its large short position in GameStop.

They say Citadel and Point72 had to provide Melvin Capital with a lifeline to stay above the water.

The hedge funds combined provided Gabe Plotkin with $2.75 billion in capital last year.

However, as things went south quick for Melvin, both hedge funds demanded the capital back.

Something Ken Griffin and his affiliates fail to mention.

Mainstream media has also danced around the fact that hedge funds planned to wipe American companies by overleveraging their short positions during the pandemic.

Success in doing so would delist AMC, GameStop, and other meme stocks from the stock market.

Betting against companies with intention to bankrupt them to the ground is no charity work.

It’s un-American and a nefarious practice that has dragged out for too long.

Ken Griffin blames retail investors

In the video below, Ken Griffin gives his thoughts on retail investors and the entire ‘meme stock’ phenomena.

Ken Griffin takes a jab at the retail community saying retail investors who aimed to bankrupt Melvin Capital also wiped-out pension funds from teachers.

But Ken, retail investors don’t get up in the morning and think to themselves, “let’s wipe out a multi-billion-dollar hedge fund.”

Melvin Capital lost because he went against retail – the first time in history the people fight back corruption in the stock market, and win.

Ken Griffin lost billions shorting AMC stock, the retail community is currently his biggest adversary.

AMC shareholders continue to buy and hold the stock until short sellers exit their positions, which will result in a short squeeze.

Today’s retail investors are armed with education, they understand what they hold and what it’s doing to hedge funds.

While Ken Griffin and affiliates might be pumping a narrative as victims, high profiles such as Elon Musk, Jon Stewart, and Ryan Cohen have stood up against short sellers.

For the first time in history, Wall Street is getting their a** kicked, and these hedge fund managers certainly do not like that.

Hedge funds should prepare for bigger losses

Institutions are about to lose a massive amount of collateral due to executive order 14032 in early June.

This presidential order is prohibiting Chinese securities to be used as collateral starting June 2nd, 2022.

It was responsible for initiating margin calls when AMC Entertainment stock rose to $20 per share in January, and $72 per share in June of last year.

With liquidity drying up in global markets, it’s going to be quite difficult for hedge funds to keep up with margin requirements on heavily shorted ‘meme stocks’.

Massive selloffs in the market have proved just how distressed financial institutions are.

We’re seeing for the first-time hedge funds begin to shut down as they take the lead in liquidity burn.

Retail investors have been the majority of buyers in today’s markets according to Bank of America.

Hedge funds are headed towards a larger train-wreck of disaster they cannot get off of.

As they continue to tank the markets, margin requirements go up thanks to DTCC B16845-22.

Hedge funds have lost control.

But I’m curious to know what you think.

Will AMC Stock Squeeze in 2022? [Short Interest Data]

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?
AMC Short Squeeze – AMC Entertainment 2022 – AMC Stock Price – AH9 Stock – AMC Stock Squeeze

Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

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

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

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

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

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

franknez.com

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

Let’s dive right into it!

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

Mainstream media wants retail to lose

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

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

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

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

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

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

AMC Short Interest Data (2022)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

AMC’s short interest is currently at 21.99%.

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

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

A 21% short interest is equivalent to approximately 159.32 million shares on loan (shares that have been borrowed and have not yet been closed).

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

New short positions have brought AMC’s short interest up to nearly 20% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

Whether AMC’s stock price is up or down, the short interest tells us a large portion of AMC’s float continues to be shorted.

The short interest is the main recipe for a short squeeze.

Will AMC stock squeeze in 2022? Game over short sellers | AMC Stock 2022 – AMC Stock Price

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

Sitting at 20% short interest, it’s more than enough to get the price up well into the high hundreds of dollars per share.

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

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

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

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

Who is AMC stock for?

Popcorn

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

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

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

Reasons why AMC wont squeeze in 2022..

I’ve always been transparent with the community.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The community has always been a beacon for change.

Apes will need to voice market concerns to elevate awareness.

Market regulation in 2022

Market regulation 2022 SEC

AMC stock had multiple chances to squeeze in 2021, however, hedge funds always found a loophole that would prevent them from reporting information, or trading stock in the lit exchange.

Market manipulation continues to be a threat to every retail investor in the market.

AMC Entertainment was on the brink of extinction, it was about to go bankrupt.

Hedge funds took this opportunity to overleverage their short positions in the stock, betting it would close forever.

Once retail investors got in and saved the company, the community uncovered a number of market manipulation tactics that allowed hedge funds to prevent the stock’s share price from soaring.

The fight for a fair market continues in 2022.

For the ape community, this is more than just a short squeeze play.

It’s about freedom.

BREAKING: Executive Order 14032 Could Be a Big Deal for AMC Stock

Hedge Fund Melvin Capital Is Shutting Down End of June

Hedge Fund Melvin Capital is Shutting Down End of June
GameStop short seller Melvin Capital is closing its doors this summer

Hedge fund Melvin Capital, notoriously known by the retail community for betting against GameStop is now closing its doors.

2022 marks the second year in a row the short seller underperforms.

Melvin Capital lost a staggering 20.6% the first quarter this year alone.

In 2021, they took a heavier hit with 50% in losses.

Now the hedge fund tells CNBC they will be shutting down by the end of June and starting a new company.

Let’s dive deeper.

The apes were right

In March, I published a tweet asking the community whether Melvin Capital would be the next hedge fund to default.

We all saw this coming, but 90% of you voted YES.

Forward a month later and now the hedge fund is announcing it is closing this summer.

Earlier in March we saw another notorious hedge fund known for shorting GameStop pull $2 billion from Gabe Plotkin’s Melvin Capital.

That hedge fund was Citadel.

Citadel also lost billions last year shorting so called ‘meme stocks’, so it comes as no surprise as to why they pulled out from Gabe Plotkin’s Melvin Capital.

Ken Griffin’s Citadel also imposed tight restrictions on its clients leading into the new year.

Customers were given an ultimatum to either stay with the firm otherwise coming back would prove to be difficult.

Steve Cohen’s Point72 redeemed $750 million from Melvin Capital around the same time.

Ken Griffin received a $1.2 billion lifeline from partners Sequoia and Paradigm in January of this year.

This was the first time Citadel had ever received private funding.

Don’t bet against the apes

Mainstream media doesn’t give retail investors enough credit for shedding light on market injustices.

The ‘ape’ community has grown since last year as retail investors discover the short interest data that points towards a bigger AMC runup than that of January and May of last year.

In this video I go over patterns that are similar to those from last year’s runup and what we should keep a close eye out on.

The apes were right about naked shorting, dark pools, and the dangers of betting against retail.

Now hedge funds are dealing with the consequences of betting against the people.

Majority of the community continues to buy and hold ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC and GameStop in efforts to create a massive short squeeze.

Retail has said it many times, a short squeeze is inevitable.

While the SEC might be proposing rules that could wash naked short selling, yet avoid them in the future, it would take years to enforce if passed.

Will hedge funds survive?

Hedge funds are currently facing deep scrutiny from both retail investors and regulators.

The DOJ is taking Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, and numerous other hedge funds to court.

Citadel is one of the short sellers currently being investigated by the Department of Justice according to a Bloomberg report.

The SEC and DOJ are looking into the following:

  • Communication between banks and hedge funds
  • Proof of ‘Bear Raids’
  • Spoofing
  • And several other market manipulation tactics

Hedge fund Muddy Waters was already raided by the FBI earlier this year for flooding the market with fake orders to drive stock prices down.

Melvin Capital is only one of many hedge funds that has closed down in the past year due to overleveraged short selling, and bad bets.

AMC’s Shares on Loan Are at An All-Time High

Market News: AMC’s shares on loan reach 157.87 million

AMC’s shares on loan have massively increased since its grand runup to $72 per share last year in June.

The movie theatre chain continues to be quite the attraction for retail investors as it is still heavily shorted.

The pandemic no longer threatens AMC Entertainment, and the company has improved drastically when it comes to fundamentals.

However, short sellers did not expect this to happen.

And now they’re stuck with millions of shares on loan that eventually have to be returned.

The results?

A short squeeze.

Let’s discuss it.

AMC’ shares on loan reach 157.87 million

AMC shares on loan - AMC short interest
AMC shares on loan – AMC short interest

The shares on loan of a stock are the number of shares that have been borrowed and have yet to be returned.

We see this data when looking the short interest data of a ticker symbol to determine how much of the float is being shorted.

So, what does this mean?

AMC’s shares on loan essentially looks like debt to short sellers because they eventually have to return these shares back to the lender.

These shares amount to approximately 21.88% short interest (updated daily on the blog).

This is a very high short interest percentage – something mainstream media will not talk to investors about.

AMC’s short high short interest is what allowed it to reach $20 per share in January and $72 per share in June of last year.

Hedge funds lost billions, which is why mainstream media has focused on scaring retail investors out of their money by pumping out ‘DO NOT BUY AMC’ content.

Nothing has changed this year except AMC’s shares on loan and short interest keeps climbing.

AMC’s short interest was only at 20% when it surged to $72 – it’s now close to 22%.

Is an AMC short squeeze on the horizon?

In recent articles I’ve said there is no better time to close short positions than today due to the bear rallies we’ve been having in the market.

The market has reached all-time lows providing short sellers with an incentive to close now before the market begins trending upwards again.

Unfortunately, new short sellers have jumped in on the hate bandwagon and are exposing themselves to very high risk.

Hedge funds have closed in the past year due to overleveraging their short positions in the market.

These are institutions who have lost billions of dollars and created major distress for real clients.

Individual short sellers should understand what they’re going up against when facing retail demand.

The fact is AMC Entertainment has the perfect short squeeze setup.

One can view short sellers as a nasty blackhead that needs to come out.

It’s there, it just has to get squeezed out.

Gross.

But you get the point.

AMC’s squeeze potential is big, it’s just a matter of when will it happen.

It’s very possible

If you’re an avid reader of my content, then you know all about executive order 14032.

Now, I don’t want to sound like a broken record player, but this could be a very big deal for AMC stock.

We saw this executive order play a very important role for AMC last year when it resulted in its January and May/June price runups.

The order is to go in effect on June 2nd, 2022.

And while the community doesn’t like to call out dates, expect something in June anyway.

Only you can control your emotions.

Optimistically, community members understand that whether executive order 14032 creates a massive impact or not, AMC is still a short squeeze play.

I’m interested to know what you think.

BREAKING: Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater buys AMC stock for the first time; sells Tesla

Another institution has bought AMC stock and sold another high-profile stock.

Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater fund just bought AMC and GameStop and sold Tesla shares.

I was watching the multi-billionaire talk about the economy just yesterday with Tom Bilyeu.

Bridgewater wasn’t the only institution that increased their stake in AMC stock this first quarter.

The largest pension fund in America (CALPERS) purchased an additional 155,992 shares by the end of Q1 this year, totaling the number of AMC shares owned to 775,392 shares.

It seems institutions are bulking up on AMC shares right before executive order 14032 goes into effect.

Things are getting very interesting.

Bridgewater buys AMC stock for the first time

Bridgewater buys AMC
Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater buys AMC stock for the first time

Bridgewater disclosed an AMC stake for the first time in its latest portfolio update.

Dalio and his team bought about 27,100 shares of the cinema chain, which were worth $667,000 at the end of March.

The fund disclosed around 4,100 GameStop shares worth $689,000 as of March 31.

The last time it listed GME stock in its portfolio was more than three years ago, at the end of 2018, according to Market Insiders.

Bridgewater owned about 25,500 Tesla shares worth $27 million at the end of December, and held the stock in all four quarters of 2021 but cashed out its Tesla stock the first quarter this year.

Ray Dalio is an incredibly smart person.

Why an institution like Bridgewater is bulking up on AMC and GameStop shares has to mean something.

The ‘ape’ community predicted the big price runups that happened in AMC last January and May/June and are expecting a bigger runup this year.

Are financial institutions catching up?

Executive order 14302 goes into effect soon

Executive order 14302 is going to prohibit financial institutions from using Chinese securities as collateral on June 2nd, 2022.

The last time Chinese collateral was prohibited on January 27th, and May 27th of 2021, AMC stock surged.

Is this why institutions such as CALPERS and Bridgewater are buying AMC stock?

And while CALPERS did not buy GME stock this first quarter, it did buy 70,600 shares of GameStop during the last quarter of 2021.

I wonder what Wall Street analysts have to say about this.

After all, they made it their life’s mission to derail investors from buying these ‘meme stocks’.

Something tells me ‘dumb money’ might not have been so dumb after all.

But I’m curious to know what you think.

Are institutions on board with the data that says AMC and GameStop have massive potential for a short squeeze?

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

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

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

It dropped 38% the first quarter of 2022 alone.

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

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

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

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

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

CALPERS keeps buying and holding AMC stock

Largest pension in America buys AMC

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There is a massive demand for AMC stock

AMC stock is not done running.

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

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

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

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

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

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

I’m curious to learn what you think.

AMC Q1 earnings call 2022

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AMC’s Q1 earnings will matter later

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

AMC’s EBITDA improved this new year.

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

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

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

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

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

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

And I’ll touch more on it below.

Related: Are You Holding Significant Losses in AMC Stock?

Executive order 14032 goes into effect soon

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

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

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

AMC finished green on Friday, up 5.45%.

What is next week looking like?

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

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

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

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

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

I’m curious to learn what you think.

Executive Order 14032 Could Be a Big Deal for AMC Stock

Executive Order 14032
Executive Order 14032 explained

Biden’s executive order 14032 replaced Trump’s executive order 13959 last year.

Executive order 13959 prohibited financial institutions to use Chinese securities as collateral, momentarily.

This propped up margin calls because of the large exposure our financial institutions have to Chinese securities.

When these securities were no longer accepted as collateral on January 27th, 2021, AMC stock surged.

The order was shortly amended (moved) to May 27th, 2021, where AMC stock had its second surge, reaching an all-time high of $72 per share only a few days after.

Biden then shortly passed executive order 14032 which gave institutions their collateral back for 365 days on June 2nd, 2021.

Well, those 365 days are coming to an end, and it seems June of 2022 could be a big month for AMC stock.

Let’s discuss it.

Redditors were wondering whether there was a document that confirmed the replacement of executive order 13959.

And here it is – the order was replaced by executive order 14032.

One of the biggest differences between these two orders is that the previous executive order affected a total of 30 securities.

Executive order 14032 will affect more than 70 securities.

You can view the list of companies here.

Executive order 14032 is to go into effect on Friday June 3rd, 2022.

Will executive order 14032 trigger a short squeeze?

Given the nature of the rule, executive order 14032 will prohibit institutions to use Chinese securities as collateral, which will result in large margin calls.

When executive order 13959 disarmed institutions with this collateral in January of 2021, AMC surged to $20+ per share.

The order was amended as stocks surged resulting in sharp declines, giving institutions this collateral back.

The amended date moved to late May, where we saw AMC reach an all-time high of $72 per share.

Institutions were then given their collateral back on June 2nd for a period of 365 calendar days.

This collateral will no longer serve institutions on June 3rd until the order is amended again.

The expiration date in early June leads us to conclude we will see major short covering in heavily shorted securities such as AMC stock.

And because the list of Chinese securities being affected has increased, this means the amount of collateral that will be removed has also drastically increased.

If history repeats itself, this next surge will be massive.

That’s not even taking into consideration the next amended date.

Will this executive order lead to MOASS?

I’ve mentioned in previous articles I don’t think institutions will be held accountable for synthetics, but I hope I’m wrong.

One thing I do know is retail investors will need to keep an eye out on AMC’s short interest data to identify whether short sellers are calling it quits or sticking around longer.

No matter how high AMC’s price surges, the short interest data essentially provides investors with insight on how much fuel is left in a short squeeze play.

When AMC rose to $72 per share, the short interest had dropped to 16% from 20%.

AMC’s current short interest is 21.57%.

We’ve also seen that AMC short sellers have hit a record high number of shares on loan.

This means they owe more shares today, than they did AMC surged to $20 and $72 per share.

A third runup will be huge for AMC stock.

Only time will tell whether executive order 14032 is the catalyst or not.

AMC is going to reach a new ATH

I believe AMC is going to reach a new all-time high from its previous record high of $72 per share.

Simply because the data is there.

The data that told us AMC was going to $20, then $72, and now even higher, is still there.

It’s just taking longer than traders would like.

But despite how long it takes, you can’t change the data.

You can’t change the fact that short sellers now owe lenders more than ever before.

And at some point, these lenders will need their money back.

Executive order 14032 seems like a highly likely trigger for AMC stock.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter.

Will GameStop See a Massive Short Squeeze Again?

GameStop Short Squeeze
GameStop GME stock – is GameStop Squeezable?

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 GME STOCK

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

Lets get started!

GME stock

GameStop closed at $98.39 on Friday May 13th.

Trading volume is currently sitting at 5.9 million with 4.2 million now being GameStop’s average volume.

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 May 13th, it is trading at $98.39.

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. Short interest data)

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.

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.

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
is GameStop squeezable? – GameStop Short Squeeze

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.

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
is GameStop still squeezable? – GameStop Short Squeeze
  • 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

Now the hedge fund is closing its doors this June 2022 after several losses.

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.

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. T

he 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s discuss it.

AMC is a top holding for Millennials and Gen Z investors

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

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

The ape community is made up of many boomers.

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

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

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

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

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

AMC and GME volume skyrockets as demand surges

AMC and GME

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Short interest data

AMC and GME short interest

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

Both AMC and GME have very high short interest.

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

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

Short sellers have their foot on a bouncy betty.

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

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

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

The upside potential is too large to pass on.

When will these two stocks squeeze?

No one can say for sure.

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