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 21%.

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

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides retail investors 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 21.55% (last updated on September 5th).

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 196.09 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 21% 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.

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

Sitting at 21% 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.

AMTD Digital Inc. (HKD Stock) Surges 311% on Wednesday

AMTD Digital HKD Stock
Market News: HKD Stock is skyrocketing again

HKD Stock surged a massive 311% on Wednesday when the stock moved from the open of $46.01 to a close of $189.42.

AMTD Digital Inc. had skyrocketed from $13.54 to more than $2.5K in only a matter of two weeks when it peaked in August.

Sources say the stock was halted 11 times on Wednesday due to its volatility.

The Hong Kong-based financial services firm has soared more than 32,000% following its IPO in July.

And heavy buying volume seems to be triggering these massive moves.

Is there something retail can learn from this?

Let’s discuss it.

Volume rises by more than 5,500%

HKD stock’s volume rose by more than 5,500% its daily average volume of 377K when it reached 1.5 million on Wednesday.

AMTD Digital Inc. grew nearly $27 billion in market value.

The company has approximately 187.44 million shares outstanding, significantly less than that of GameStop’s (304m) and AMC Entertainment’s (516m).

Interestingly enough, pre-IPO shareholders, directors and executive officers are subject to a lockup agreement that prevents them from selling shares until January, according to the July 15 prospectus.

AMTD Digital’s shares were also among the most actively traded stocks on the Fidelity platform on Wednesday.

Will the stock keep rising?

Redbox stock has been having an incredible rally despite the current market situation.

The stock is up more than 430% on the monthly chart.

Today RDBX finished up 15.68% but saw gains up to 30%.

Retail investors want to know, will Redbox keep going up?

Redbox Stock outperforms the market

The stock market had one of the worst trading days in history today.

SPY stock was down almost 4% on Monday and the NASDAQ almost 5%.

Seeing the market today seemed unnatural – catastrophic almost.

But Redbox stock outperformed the market.

It closed today’s trading day with 55.3 million in trading volume from its average of 18.9 million.

Redbox has been exploding in the past month due to the massive surge of retail investors jumping in on this new ‘meme stock’.

It earns its ‘meme stock’ title due to Redditors discovering its incredibly high short interest, and short squeeze possibility.

Mainstream media is saying today’s rally was due to Redbox squeezing, but in order for us to track its short squeeze we’ll have to take a close look at the short interest data.

Will Redbox stock squeeze?

will Redbox stock squeeze?
Will Redbox stock squeeze?

Redbox stock currently has a short interest of 225.59%.

This is massive.

But mainstream finance platforms say RDBX stock squeezed today.

We will have to keep an eye out on this short interest percentage to determine whether shorts indeed closed some positions.

You will know shorts began to buy back shares if the short interest drops significantly.

Otherwise, the price movement could have simply been from big buying pressure.

AMC Entertainment stock saw gains up to 3,000% last year when some shorts began to close their positions.

GameStop saw gains upwards to 1,500%.

Redbox stock has only seen some 430% gains so far and has a much higher short interest than what AMC and GameStop had.

Will RDBX stock squeeze?

Just like we saw with AMC and GameStop, heavy buying pressure all at once may trigger short sellers to close, initiating a short squeeze.

How high will Redbox stock go?

Reddit: how high will Redbox stock go?
Reddit: How high will Redbox stock go?

Redbox has a high probability of reaching all-time high share prices.

The stock was hard to knock down despite the stock market heavily getting splattered.

While majority of the stock market was pulled down, Redbox stock finished the day green.

It’s always difficult to determine how high a heavily shorted stock such as Redbox will go.

This is primarily due to how many factors affect its share price.

The incredible thing is that it’s also costing short sellers a lot to short this stock.

RDBX has a cost to borrow of 636.42.

There’s no reason why anyone in the market should be able to short the stock this much.

It’s as if institutions did not learn from shorting both AMC and GameStop.

The short interest data in this stock is so high, there’s no doubt shorts will be getting burned on this one again.

I published an article on RDBX stock almost two weeks ago before it began to rally even higher.

AMC finished the week strong up more than 20% last week.

Stocks have been on a free-fall as the SPY and NASDAQ pull the entire market down with them.

However, both the SPY and NASDAQ finished up 6% last week which could indicate a potential reversal is underway.

It’s now costing short sellers a lot more money to short AMC stock

A major change has happened in the past week.

The cost to short AMC stock has dramatically increased from 2% to now 7.1%.

Short sellers are now paying more to short AMC stock.

This is a pattern long-term AMC shareholders are too familiar with.

AMC’s short borrow fee began to rise last year moments before the stock saw big price action.

An increasing fee incentivized a small percentage of short sellers to close their positions driving the stock price up.

Today, there are more short sellers in AMC than there were when the stock price soared to $72 per share.

AMC’s current reported short interest is 22.85%.

The number of shares on loan are at an all-time high meaning there are now more shares that have to be returned than there were during AMC’s run to $20 and $72 per share.

AMC has the perfect short squeeze setup.

And as the fee rises to short AMC stock, shorts will have to make the decision to either deal with it or close their short positions.

Executive order 14032 will trigger margin calls

Executive order 14032 will prohibit institutions to use Chinese securities as collateral, which will result in large margin calls.

This executive order replaced 13959 from the Trump administration.

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.

This order could be the reason AMC squeezes next week, or rather the reason why we see large price movement very, very soon.

Only time will tell exactly how this executive order will affect AMC and other heavily shorted stock.

But the data is there, and the coincidence is far too big to simply ignore.

You can read more about executive order 14032 and get access to the government document here.

No dates, but the stars are aligning in retail’s favor

AMC squeezes next week

No matter how you look at it, another AMC surge is imminent.

It’s very possible the SPY also hit a bottom around the low $400 levels.

This means the stock market could be seeing a reversal very soon, granted that the SPY continues to break upwards.

A short squeeze play though, is different.

AMC’s short interest data is there, there’s no doubt this is indeed a short squeeze play.

And whether AMC squeezes next week or not, short sellers are in a very tough position right now.

The markets are bound to go up again.

Failing to close at these all-time lows could prove to be a very big mistake.

Retail investors, brace yourself – winter seems to be over.

I’m curious to hear your thoughts.

How High Will AMC’s Next Price Runup Go?

How high will AMC’s short squeeze go?

AMC’s high short interest data tells us AMC’s next price runup will be higher than its previous run from last year.

The movie theatre chain company reached an all-time high of $72 per share when a few short sellers began to close their positions in June of 2021.

The same executive order that triggered margin calls in January and in June of last year is going into effect again this June.

Executive order 14032 (formerly 13959) prohibited financial institutions from using Chinese securities as collateral – read more about it here.

So, how high will AMC’s next price runup go?

Let’s discuss it below.

Short sellers have dug a deeper hole

Why is AMC going up?

Short sellers have borrowed more shares to short the stock than they did back in January and June when the stock ran up to $20 and $72 per share.

These shares on loan eventually have to get returned back to the lender (by buying back the stock).

This buying pressure will create momentum, driving AMC’s share price up.

How high AMC’s next price runup goes will depend on how many shorts close their positions.

When AMC surged to $72 per share in June, it had roughly just over 100 million shares on loan and a short interest of 24% before falling to 20%, then 14%.

Today, AMC’s shares on loan have reached an all-time high of 173.61 million with a short interest of more than 23%.

As long as AMC has a high short interest, it’s a short squeeze play.

But there are just way too many factors to determine how high AMC’s next price runup will go.

The percent of shorts closing being one.

The more the short interest drops, the higher we can determine AMC’s share price will skyrocket.

AMC to $100? AMC to $1,000? AMC to $10,000?

how high will AMC go
AMC short squeeze price prediction

But what prices are realistic?

Theoretically AMC has incredible potential based on DD done by many intelligent retail investors.

Apes have created simulations allowing them to see a variety of price levels and possibilities, mainly calculating synthetic shares into the equation.

However, regulators have failed to address synthetics or hold institutions accountable to close these synthetics.

When a law is passed holding institutions accountable to close these synthetics, it will be EPIC.

AMC to $100 per share may only require some short closing.

We know this because of the ride to $72 per share.

Short interest dropped approximately 10 points from 24% to 14%.

14% is still a relatively high short interest, another 10 points from 14% would leave AMC with 4% short interest left – nearly done.

But doubling short covering doesn’t mean double the all-time high.

It could triple, quadruple or even 10X because of individual short positions in AMC.

There are just too many factors out there that limit us identifying exactly how high AMC’s next share price will go.

You may hold to any number you desire, but don’t burn yourself.

Keep an eye out on the data and have a strategy.

Creating a strategy

Every investor should have a strategy and have a plan to profit.

Your selling point will be different than another fellow apes’.

Don’t bag hold on the journey to $1MM per share – but rather accumulate the number of shares that will multiply your profit to a specific and desired goal.

In the end, bulls make money, bears make money, but pigs get slaughtered.

As AMC’s next price runup begins to take off, we’ll need to keep an eye out on the short interest (updated daily here) to identify whether it’s ‘the big one’, or merely small, short covering.

And as much as $1,000, $10,000, and $100,000 per share seems incredible, those things are out of your control.

My advice?

Don’t play the passive game.

Focus on what is in your control – increasing your multiplier and playing to win.

The community should throw out the question “how high will AMC squeeze?” and focus on profiting BIG and keeping an eye out on more price runup potential.

For example, AMC may have a big runup as executive order 14032 goes into effect next week, but the order may be amended (moved) shortly after.

If amended, this would mean AMC will have another price runup in the future where investors can profit from (again).

Everyone’s strategy will be different – just make sure you have one.

New Data Shows AMC and GME Stock are Manipulated

Proof AMC and GME are being manipulated
Proof AMC and GME stock are being manipulated

Data shows retail investors aren’t selling their AMC or GME stock, yet both stocks continue to plummet.

Are their share prices being manipulated?

Retail investors have been at war with hedge funds since the buy button was deleted from purchasing ‘meme stocks’ back in January of 2021.

Regulators such as the SEC have been under fire as well.

The SEC announced they would be voting on hedge fund disclosures, the vote was approved 3-1.

Keep reading for the latest AMC and GameStop market data.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on trending stock, crypto, and market news. Today we’re discussing market manipulation and anomalies in both AMC and GME stock.

Let’s get started!

I want to give a massive shoutout to the retail community who has been bringing light to this information.

Without you, the community wouldn’t be what it is.

AMC Market Data

AMC market manipulation
AMC price does NOT match retail buying and holding

The yellow you’re seeing in this market data by CheddarFlow is identifying the strength in buying and holding AMC stock.

The blue line you’re seeing is AMC’s trading price decline.

The price does not reflect the true demand for the stock; in other words, retail investors are not selling AMC stock.

So, why is AMC stock’s share price plummeting although retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock?

This anomaly seems to be blatant market manipulation.

Not only have hedge funds faced intense scrutiny for playing dirty, but many have defaulted or are losing money betting against AMC and GameStop.

Here’s what an accurate chart analysis of how this pattern should be in sync.

Peloton accuracy
Peloton sell-off matches price drops

As you can see in this market data analysis, Peloton’s blue line (price) matches the yellow pattern of investors selling the stock.

This is an accurate representation of what a sell-off looks like when compared to the price of a stock.

When comparing Peloton’s market data vs AMC’s, we can clearly identify that AMC’s share price is being manipulated.

AMC shareholders are not selling their AMC stock, but rather hedge funds are using loopholes to drive the share price down.

What about GameStop (GME)?

GameStop manipulation
GameStop market manipulation

We’re seeing the same market manipulation in GameStop as we are with AMC stock.

GME shareholders continue to buy and hold the stock as hedge funds manipulate the share price by tanking it.

Naturally, the demand seen by retail investors should be driving AMC’s and GameStop’s share price upwards, not downwards.

AMC and GME share price are synthetic

AMC and GME share price are synthetic

When comparing both AMC and GameStop’s data to Peloton’s sell-off, we can only conclude that AMC’s and GameStop’s share prices are synthetic.

They do not reflect the demand in the stock market nor the psychology and sentiment within the communities.

The ape community has always been right when it comes to the nefarious strategies used to suppress the share price of these stocks.

Both AMC and GME stock are heavily shorted at 20% short interest according to Ortex.

However, the short interest reported can certainly be much higher that what Ortex, S3, and Ameritrade are being given to report.

Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

What does this mean for retail investors?

franknez.com

Retail investors who own shares in both AMC and GME stock have been experiencing a slow bleed in the markets.

The drops seem to be synthetically produced and are out of retail’s control.

Raising awareness of this market manipulation is the best fighting chance retail investors have.

There’s a massive suppression preventing AMC and GME stock from running a natural course based solely on supply and demand.

All activists fighting for a fair market should remain headstrong in creating change.

Lifting this suppression will drive both these stock’s share price up inevitably forcing short sellers to close their positions.

Why Didn’t AMC Squeeze Last Year in 2021? [Deep Dive]

Why didn't AMC squeeze last year?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze? And can it squeeze this year?

Many of you might be wondering why AMC didn’t squeeze last year in 2021.

The stock had an incredible year overall.

Retail investors who got in for a short squeeze play early came up more than 1000%!

However, these retail investors knowns as ‘apes’ continue to hold the stock into 2022.

After all, people got in for a short squeeze play, not to make a quick buck.

So, why didn’t AMC squeeze last year in 2021?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to touch topic on AMC since it’s been the most anticipated stock of all 2021. You’re going to want to stick around for this one.

Let’s get started!

AMC was one of the most searched for ticker symbols in 2021 and consistently trended on Yahoo Finance throughout the year.

Many of you aren’t new to the blog.

I was an early adopter in the AMC saga and helped a ton of people get in on this play early.

So, what was so special about buying AMC stock in 2021?

After GameStop’s share price increased to incredible levels nearing $500 per share, retail investors noticed AMC’s short interest was also high.

A high short interest meant the stock was heavily shorted therefore short sellers could be squeezed out of their positions, triggering a short squeeze (massive price flux.).

AMC experienced massive gains from $2 per share up to $20 per share.

Momentum then further escalated AMC’s share price to $72 per share before slowly cooling off to today’s price levels.

However, AMC didn’t fully squeeze last year, it merely removed small shorts from their positions during these runups.

But more on that later, let’s break down what is currently going on with AMC stock.

AMC Continues to Be Shorted

AMC Short Shares Available to borrow

AMC was one of the heaviest shorted stocks in the market last year.

Though mainstream media might claim that AMC squeezed last year, it only experienced gamma squeezes (momentum).

Because the short interest did fluctuate, we can access that some short covering did indeed occur.

However, AMC’s short interest is still relatively high.

When AMC soared to $72 per share last year the short interest dropped from 20% to 14%.

AMC’s current short interest is at 20%.

AMC Short Interest 2022

This means there’s ample room for AMC’s share price to continue surging in 2022.

Why didn’t shorts cover their positions in AMC last year?

A few short sellers did cover their short positions in AMC last year, though according to the short interest many open positions remain.

In fact, according to the short interest data, there’s approximately more than 102 million shares on loan that have yet to be closed.

Financial institutions have to close these positions at some point, and that’s whether they’re profitable or not.

Because short squeeze plays are rare, we’re learning more about their development through AMC and GameStop.

The matter of the fact is that AMC Entertainment is no longer going bankrupt so even if the share price drops below $10 and shorts cover profitable, we can expect to see a massive runup from the buying pressure happening all at once.

Why bigger shorts didn’t cover AMC last year is almost like saying why didn’t retail investors sell their stock last year.

Both retail and short sellers are going long on AMC Entertainment stock.

This means eventually individual people from both groups will begin to cave in.

And it’s an entire ecosystem of some taking profits or cutting their losses.

As AMC’s share price continues to drop in 2022, it provides short sellers with open positions in AMC from last year to finally close this year.

The results?

Massive price movements.

Market manipulation events

Market manipulation exposed
Market manipulation exposed

Retail investors who bought AMC stock last year saw a number of ways hedge funds manipulate the market.

From borrowing shares that don’t exist to short the stock, to OTC trading and dark pool trading, retail saw it all.

These predatorial strategies were used in efforts to discourage retail from further buying the stock.

Last year we saw Melvin Capital almost close if it weren’t for Citadel giving them a lifeline.

Mudrick threw in the towel and Archegos went bankrupt.

Anchorage Capital closed after 18 years; they had more than 4 million put options in AMC stock and were one of the top 10 institutional firms shorting AMC stock last year.

Another hedge fund on that list is Citadel Securites who lost billions in AMC in 2021, negatively affecting their customers.

Will this trend continue in 2022?

Leave a comment below.

How long can shorts drag not covering?

Just as retail investors can go long on a stock for many years, short sellers can also drag not covering for long periods of time.

This squeeze play will have intermittent episodes where we see some covering before new shorts open a position.

AMC Entertaiment is a hot spot for short sellers to bet against the stock and the company’s progress.

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?

Why didn't AMC Squeeze in 2021? Can AMC squeeze in 2022?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze in 2021? Can AMC still squeeze in 2022?

As AMC’s share price continues to tumble, short sellers may begin to take profits by closing their short positions.

It’s this buying pressure that will ultimately lead AMC to experience major price moves this year.

Whether these price moves will trigger a chain of short covering or not is an event that has yet to unfold.

Could AMC squeeze in 2022?

Absolutely.

But while regulators fall back on the uncovering of synthetics, for now the short interest is the only data that confirms how much potential this squeeze has.

Family Offices Are Unregulated Hedge Funds [Exposed]

Family offices are unregulated hedge funds
Bill Hwang – founder of family office Archegos Capital

Incredible information has surfaced from the community in regard to unregulated hedge funds posing as family offices.

This industry holds trillions of dollars in assets globally with about 40% being held in the United States.

What’s more alarming is that these family offices aren’t regulated nor registered with the SEC (Securities Exchange Commission), allowing financial institutions to use this network of unregulated trading to their advantage.

In this article we’re going to dive deep into the seriousness of this inequality in the markets.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that protects retail investors from injustices in the markets. Today we’re discussing a loophole in the market that has been overlooked.

Let’s get started!

The inception of Archegos family office

Family offices Archegos

A well-known ‘family office’ you might have heard of is Archegos Capital, founded by Bill Hwang.

Archegos family office had $120 billion total exposure according to Credit Suisse Report, causing $10 billion in trading losses to the world’s largest banks.

Two of which included Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley.

Bill Hwang was mentored by hedge fund expert Julian Robertson from Tiger Asia Management and Tiger Asia Partners, a hedge fund that was shut down by the U.S in 2012 for insider trading and manipulating Chinese stocks.

After getting banned from the investment advisory industry and a $44 million settlement with the SEC, Bill Hwang set up his family office, Archegos Capital.

Already with a history in crime, Bill Hwang’s family office was able to get away with several billions of dollars in stock positions due to the lack of regulatory measures.

The Archegos incident is currently known as one of the largest public margin calls in family offices, for now that is.

This shadow industry manages twice more assets than hedge funds registered with the SEC.

Private offices own approximately twice in assets than hedge funds

Family offices are an unregulated corner of the financial marketplace with an estimated $6 to $7 trillion in assets under management (compared to $3.4 trillion in global hedge funds), via. Inequality.

Archegos revealed that family offices can create systemic risk due to their size, lack of regulation, and growing interest in ‘speculative investments’.

These growing interests in speculative investments may include the shorting of so called ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC and GameStop.

Hedge funds have been overleveraging their short positions in these stocks speculating the companies would go bankrupt shortly after the pandemic.

However, retail investors buying and holding the stock have caused hedge funds betting against these companies to lose billions of dollars.

To refrain from causing their clients further turmoil, we’ve seen an incredible amount of shorting happen in these stocks.

Anomalies in the stocks derive from either naked shorting, a network of unregulated trading, or both.

Hedge funds have used an array of loopholes to suppress the stock price of both AMC and GameStop to minimize consequential losses.

And the retail community is making a lot of noise.

Why aren’t these family offices regulated?

SEC

Those in favor of family offices believe light oversight is justified because these offices only serve private families.

Because they are not serving multiple clients, they believe these offices should not be subject to scrutiny.

Should these businesses be regulated and registered with the SEC?

I’d love to know your thoughts, leave a comment below.

The good news is that we have a New York Congresswoman by the name of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from the House Financial Committee, introducing a bill that would fight to regulate these family offices.

She’s introducing HR 4620, the Family Office Regulation Act of 2021.

After the massive liquidation from Archegos Capital, regulators are seeking to gain access to private information from these family offices in order to mitigate risk.

Hedge funds have incredible access to market manipulation

Market manipulation

Hedge fund industry expert, Charles Gradante has mentioned market makers are in favor of short selling.

In an infinite pool of access to capital from banks, the feds, and family offices, it’s going to take much more than the SEC to regulate the market.

New systems must be put into place, organizations, and activist groups to speak on the matter publicly.

The retail community holding ‘meme stocks’ has sparked a movement to raise awareness surrounding the market manipulation from all complicit parties.

These offices have also moved into the crypto market which could explain the massive liquidity we’re seeing today.

Hedge funds and private offices need to be regulated to prevent market manipulation and systemic risk.

While retail investors bet on the rise and well-being of a company, financial institutions suppress the growth of stocks, posing a major threat to our economy.

China banned Citadel Securities due to “malicious short-selling”, the United States needs to do the same thing.

These massive hedge funds have an incredible network to overleverage their short positions in emerging and growing companies.

Private offices create an extension for hedge funds to short stocks without reporting their positions to the SEC.

And while not all family offices are a loophole for hedge funds, the ‘ape community’ continues to be right.

“Dumb Money” Gained More Than 1200% in AMC Stock Last Year

AMC Dumb Money 2022
Should you invest in AMC stock in 2022?

Dumb money may not be so dumb after all.

The group referred to as “dumb money” ended up making significant gains in 2021 from AMC stock.

Retail investors who got in early made a whopping 1200% return in their investment with the share price only sitting at $27 per share.

Those who traded the stock back in June made nearly 3000% in return when AMC reached $72 per share.

Is dumb money actually dumb?

Here’s what’s next.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the ape community made a ruckus last year and has become a beacon for change in the markets. There’s a lot going on this year and a lot more money to be made.

Let’s get started!

AMC stock took the internet by a storm all of 2021.

It was on the top 10 list of most searched words on Google, and it was the most searched ticker symbol in the markets.

Why did AMC get so much traction?

The story is incredible.

The Data Showed These Possibilities

AMC Short Squeeze Data

You might wonder, how the heck did this stock provide investors with more than 1200% in returns?

The truth is a small group of retail investors on Reddit’s r/wallstreetbets found data that predicted it to do so.

In fact, the data says AMC can still rise much higher than its climb to $72 per share.

See, we knew two things.

AMC stock was heavily shorted, and short sellers (investors betting against the stock), eventually needed to cover.

This meant that as retail investors bought the stock, the demand for it would increase the price, causing a short squeeze (massive price influx).

The people on the opposite side of the spectrum were hedge funds, financial institutions who lost billions of dollars betting the stock would go down.

In the midst of pursuing one of the biggest trades in history, retail investors were able to save AMC Entertainment from going bankrupt.

The century old movie theatre chain raised more than $2 billion dollars in cash and began innovating ever since.

Mainstream media fought hard

What surprised retail investors is how much mainstream media actually cared about their finances.

Finance media warned investors to stay clear from the stock, eventually attacking the company and anyone who invested in it.

The Fool, MarketWatch, Benzinga, Yahoo Finance, and other finance media began attacking the ‘ape community’.

Come to find out there was a massive conflict of interest given that all these news platforms were tied to News Corp., a company indirectly owned by the biggest hedge fund shorting AMC stock, Citadel Securities.

While mainstream media might have been able to scare a few people from their money, the ape community persisted to educate the public.

My platform introduced hundreds of thousands of people to AMC stock, and now millions.

YouTubers such as Trey’s Trades and Matt Kohrs used their channels to expose the data that triggered millions of retail investors to buy the stock.

As an early adopter, my blog has educated the public on the data that predicted these price moves and has fought for a fair market through investigative journalism.

Is the AMC short squeeze over?

The AMC short squeeze is not over, AMC’s reported short interest is still very high.

Although you cannot buy the stock at $2 or $5 anymore, entry at $25-$27 is very cheap compared to where the price can still go.

AMC’s share price rose from $14 to $72 when the short interest dropped from 20% to 14%.

The short interest is currently at 17% meaning shorts have opened new positions.

And as long as there are this many shorts betting against AMC, they have locked in positions to be squeezed out of.

Third wave price predictions are looking at AMC trading at hundreds of dollars per share.

As retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock en masse, AMC will continue to set new all-time highs (ATH).

Should you buy AMC stock in 2022?

“Dumb money” is still buying AMC Stock in 2022 – AMC Short squeeze 2022

There are conditions to buying AMC stock in 2022.

First, be willing to invest money you can afford to lose because nothing is certain in the markets.

The stock market is a very institution-oriented device and still very much plays in the favor of banks and hedge funds alike.

Your risk tolerance will play a massive role in this trade but could very well be worth it.

To take things into perspective, majority of the community who got into AMC last year is still holding the stock even though they can cash out massive gains.

The reason being is conviction.

AMC has so much more potential, and we are all excited to see it come to fruition this new year.

If this sounds like it could be a play for you then you might want to consider it.

Opportunities like this don’t come very often.

I guess dumb money wasn’t very dumb after all.

Don’t Make This Silly Mistake With Your AMC Stock

don't make this silly mistake with your AMC stock
What will you allow your AMC stock to do for you?

AMC is forming a massive bullish pennant.

The stock had the same pattern months after the push to $20 per share back in January.

Five months later, AMC stock surged up to $72 per share in June.

Well now we’re beginning to recognize this massive bull flag again.

The next leg up will be massive.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – I hope everyone has been having an amazing time with the family this holiday season. Today we’re discussing AMC stock.

Let’s get started!

Some of you apes have been wondering whether AMC will squeeze this year or not.

Some are hoping AMC doesn’t squeeze until next year to reduce those capital gains taxes.

How long this bullish pennant will last for is hard to predict.

AMC Bull Flag

The last bull flag lasted for five months before it skyrocketed.

This current bull flag is going strong on its fifth month now.

A breakout could technically happen any day.

What Price Will The Breakout Take AMC To?

AMC breakout

I’ve stated in previous articles that I believe the next breakout could take AMC well into the low hundreds of dollars per share.

AMC’s share price multiplied five times from $14 to $72 per share.

If we look at the consolidation price of $38-$40 per share and multiply it by five we get approximately $200 per share.

This brief summary is simply based on a repeating factor.

It could be less, or it could be more.

Will This Next Runup Cause Big Shorts To Cover?

I think we could be seeing a much longer play than we anticipated here.

Let’s look at GameStop for a second.

GME stock is trading above $200 per share and still has a high short interest of 10%, meaning big shorts are still very well in this play.

AMC currently has a short interest closer to 16%.

We’ll have to keep an eye on this number to see how much of the float is still being shorted after the next major runup.

Hedge funds shorting AMC stock could cut their losses, entering the new year with a clean slate.

Or they can lose other Michael Jordan’s millions upon millions of dollars.

Do you think hedge funds will cut their losses?

Or will they continue to take a nosedive into the new year?

Let me know your thoughts at the end of the article.

Don’t Sell Yourselves Short

AMC looks as if it’s right on the peak of this bull pennant, right before another massive leg up.

Don’t sell yourselves short now.

This could very well be the last time AMC trades at its current share price, ever.

I reached my number of shares goal a while back, but have added a few shares here and there, you can view my purchases here.

Here’s an example of selling yourself short:

I, along with other apes could have sold our AMC shares at $72 per share.

However, we would be selling ourselves short because of where this third runup could potentially go.

How high will it go?

I’m not certain, but I do know it will be higher than the second run based on its chart pattern.

Only time will tell whether this next leg up causes a chain reaction of short covering.

One Thing Is Certain

This play will require serious patience.

We don’t know whether this play will squeeze shorts similar to how Tesla did or whether it will be a massive domino effect of shorts closing their positions.

Keep an open mind to seeing AMC continuously raising the bottom over and over like Tesla did.

This means there could be a third runup, and a fourth, and a fifth, and so on.

Though most of us would like an instantaneous short squeeze, I believe we should be open to all types of scenarios as to how one can happen.

Don’t Wing It, Have A Plan

have a plan for your amc stock

I published an article expressing my personal thoughts on an exit strategy guide months ago to prepare apes for when the time comes.

This of course is just my opinion on how to exit your positions safely, having made a lot of money.

The point of the article is to simply have a plan.

When you plan, you will execute better.

Are You Excited For The Next Runup?
