What a storm. What a battle right? AMC keeps on keeping on, and although AMC has been on discount recently, the stock seems to have a very nasty and bullish attitude.

Yes, shorts have been able to drive the price down through naked short selling but more on that later. Retail investors are very excited about the data that’s been collected for months now. Will we see an AMC short squeeze while we continue to ride this bull? And if so, how soon?

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

Lets get started!

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

Key Highlights

  • AMC closed at $57.00 on June 14th. The stock has fundamentally surged despite short sellers attacking it. AMC Entertainment is set up for a short squeeze.
  • The perfect time to buy AMC stock is when the market is red, or what we refer to as on ‘discount’. AMC is looking bullish though, red days might just be over.
  • AMC entertainment continues to be the most heavily shorted stock in the market.
  • AMC’s short borrow fee continues to increase.

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

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

AMC stock news and highlights

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

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

Strong chance of a short squeeze – Fox Business AMC

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

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

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

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

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

Adam aron, President and CEO of AMC Entertainment

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

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital AMC Stock
Melvin Capital Hedge Fund – AMC

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

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

Here’s why this matters:

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

Here’s what retail investors can do:

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

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

Positive news for AMC Entertainment

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

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

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

There will not be a 500 million AMC share dilution!

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

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

Short sellers fell for an AMC dilution

As of 6/14, we’re seeing 850k short shares have been made available to borrow, via Fintel.

AMC short shares available fintel

Was Adam Aron’s approval request of a 500 million share dilution to his shareholders a strategy to trick shorts into borrowing more shares? I personally think so and it’s absolutely genius. Shorts continue to borrow shares.

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

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

What does this mean for the AMC shareholder?

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

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

AMC Q1 earnings for 2021

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

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

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

AMC Q1 2021 highlights

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

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

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

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

It’s tendie time!

Analyst AMC predictions

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

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

See what stock analyst Trey has to say.

AMC short squeeze

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hedge funds are doing everything they can to prevent an AMC short squeeze from happening

How are they doing this?

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

This is what retail investors can do to fight corruption

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

What will an AMC short squeeze look like?

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

What will an AMC short squeeze look like?

According to Trey’s Trades we’ve already hit the bottom. AMC is now extremely bullish. We’ve seen resistant levels around $14-$16 recently which is a great push from $5. We’re now sitting at $57.00 per share.

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

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

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

Gamma squeeze vs Short squeeze

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

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

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

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

AMC Short Squeeze Stock Prediction

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

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

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

Will AMC reach peaks like GME?

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

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

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

Trending: Is It Too Late To Get In On AMC Stock?

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

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

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

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

Where was AMC trading at before the pandemic?

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

What if a short squeeze doesn’t happen?

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

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

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

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

As Mark Cuban bluntly put it, keep holding.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

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

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

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

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

AMC short borrow fee (Fintel)

As of 6/14 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 2.58%.

Unfortunately for shorts, an AMC short squeeze is inevitable. Retail investors are not giving up.

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

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

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

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

We’re bullish on AMC stock

All the numbers point towards the right direction for a massive short squeeze. Shorts and hedge funds continue to lose money every day. The interest is growing at an alarming rate and AMC’s current utilization is at 100%.

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

Why New Retail Investors Investing in AMC Should Avoid Robinhood

why new retail investor investing in AMC should avoid robinhood

There’s been a surge of new retail investors questioning why they should ditch Robinhood or avoid it. Seasoned retail investors holding AMC stock have been guiding newcomers in order to help them prepare and maximize their profits for when AMC squeezes. I’m going to go through a number of reasons why new retail investors investing in AMC should avoid Robinhood.

If you hold AMC stock in Robinhood or are thinking of investing in AMC then this article is perfect for you.

franknez.com 
Robinhood AMC

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

Lets get started!

If you’re new to the AMC community be sure to read the articles on the side of this page under ‘Top Posts & Pages’ to catch up on everything there is to know about AMC’s short squeeze, market manipulation, and the stocks data.

Robinhood app origin

Vlad Tenev Robinhood
Vlad Tenev, Robinhood

Robinhood is an American financial services company that was founded in April 2013 by Vladimir Tenev and Baiju Bhatt. Robinhood is headquartered in Menlo Park, California. The app was introduced in March of 2015 and offered commission-free trades of stock and other funds to its users making it an extremely attractive choice for new retail investors.

Robinhood for the most part had a very positive and outlook and following since its inception. So what happened to this beloved company and why are retail investors investing in AMC Entertainment staying clear from this trading application?

Robinhood halts GameStop

Lets get you caught up.

Robinhood restricts purchasing of GameStop and AMC stock

Thursday, January 28th, 2021 – Robinhood halts purchasing of GameStop, AMC, and BlackBerry stock.

On Thursday, January 28th Robinhood announced it would restrict retail investors from trading in GameStop, AMC, and even BlackBerry stock.

This single handedly move would leave new retail investors baffled with their beloved trading application.

The catch with Robinhood trading halt

Robinhood AMC GameStop

What left retail investors more puzzled was the fact that Robinhood halted the purchasing of ‘meme’ stocks but not the selling of them. This halt affected GameStop’s momentum. The act of selling would play in hedge funds’ favor.

Retail investors were quick to make their concerns public and went as far as to connecting the dots on their own. The Reddit community suspected foul play and the information that was discovered only confirmed more market manipulation.

The connection between Robinhood, Citadel, and Melvin Capital

Connection between Robinhood, Citadel, and Robinhood

The Reddit community discovered that Citadel is Robinhood’s clearing house. This means that this hedge fund shorting AMC and GameStop stock has direct access to processing retail investors transactions. Citadel lends money to Melvin Capital who shorts these stocks.

Both Citadel and Melvin Capital have denied having anything to do with Robinhood’s decision to halt trading but this connection has severed the bond between Robinhood and it’s users investing in AMC and GameStop stock.

Hedge funds lost billions of dollars when GameStop squeezed and are currently losing millions of dollars every day from holding AMC.

Robinhood protects hedge funds

Vlad Tenev has denied the idea that halting trading was done in order to protect its hedge fund affiliates.

It’s from this simple statement that retail investors lost all respect for the Robinhood CEO. Robinhood stands for taking from the rich and distributing the wealth amongst the poor.

Robinhood’s ethics shattered its trust with the Reddit community by proving otherwise.

Read: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

When a public figure messes up big time, the first step towards correcting your mistake is to be honest about it.

Frank Nez

Has the SEC done anything to regulate the manipulation?

SEC

In short, no. Members of the SEC have more than likely been lobbied to ease regulations.

The AMC community has recently gotten together and shared their concerns via Twitter generating the hashtag, #SECdoyourjob.

I wrote an in-depth article on the SEC which many in the community have shared and tagged them directly. You can check it out here.

Since the publish of this article, we’ve actually seen the SEC raise some concern regarding the excessive shorting hedge funds continue to practice on both AMC and GameStop stock. We’re making progress apes.

Warren Buffett expresses his concerns about Robinhood

Warren Buffett warns new retail investors the potential of losing a lot of money through Robinhood calling it a gambling app.

Graham Stephen goes more into detail about what Warren had to say during his annual conference and also provides insight on Robinhood’s cancellation.

Robinhood just got cancelled – Graham Stephen

This video goes into other details as to why Robinhood is losing its reputation other than the reasons mentioned on this article.

Why should retail investors investing in AMC ditch Robinhood?

AMC Entertainment stock has the perfect setup for a short squeeze. The biggest concern the AMC community has is that Robinhood is going to halt trading AMC stock once it moons.

If this happens, say goodbye to the opportunity of a lifetime.

What broker should I invest with instead?

There a numerous broker accounts you can use. I personally use Vanguard. Some of you may know Vanguard from being one of the biggest AMC shareholders in the market. They’ve been adding to their position all year and have proven to be an outstanding broker.

Here’s a list of other brokers you can use to invest in AMC:

  • Fidelity
  • Charles Schwab
  • ETrade
  • TD Ameritrade
Robinhood Vanguard

I published an article on how to invest in stock market step by step using Vanguard. If you know friends or family who are curious about investing but haven’t pulled the trigger, link them to save you the time teaching them.

How to transfer stocks out of your Robinhood Account

If you hold AMC stock in a Robinhood account and are afraid they might restrict you when AMC squeezes, you can transfer your stocks out of Robinhood using their Automated Customer Account Transfers Service (ACATS) to other brokerages.

Note: If you transfer all of your assets over to another brokerage, Robinhood will close your account.

Is there a fee to transfer stocks out of Robinhood?

Yes. Robinhood charges its users a $75 fee to transfer your assets out of Robinhood.

How long does it take for my assets to transfer out of Robinhood?

Robinhood users are experiencing up to 4 days for their assets to transfer out of their broker account. The time it takes for your assets to show up on your new brokerage account may vary.

What you can do to speed up the process is setup you new brokerage account ahead of time in order to avoid delays.

What if I miss AMC’s short squeeze?

Analysts such as Trey’s Trades are anticipating AMC’s short squeeze can last several days to even several weeks.

If you’re nervous about transferring your assets here are other solutions:

  1. Open an additional position with a different brokerage.
  2. Transfer some assets into a new brokerage.

AMC’s short squeeze is still unfolding. The stock has the perfect setup and we’re finally beginning to see things play out in the retail investors favor.

Although we can’t calculate for certain the date the squeeze will occur, the data does seem to advise it’s close.

AMC short squeeze prediction

AMC short squeeze prediction

Trey’s Trades predicts an AMC short squeeze will happen either by the end of May or sometime in June.

Not only has the short borrow fee gone up, pressuring shorts to cover, but more retail investors getting in on the stock are causing it to spike in price action.
