Yahoo Lists AMC and GameStop in Mark Cuban’s Portfolio

Mark Cuban AMC and GameStop
Market News: Does Mark Cuban own AMC or GameStop shares?

Yahoo Finance just published 10 stocks to buy now tied to Mark Cuban’s portfolio.

AMC and GameStop are two retail favorites listed on Yahoo’s list (below).

Mark Cuban jumped on WallStreetBets to do an AMA last year after the ‘meme stock’ frenzy first occurred in late January of 2021.

“If you can afford to hold the stock, you hold. I don’t own it, but that’s what I would do.

Why? because when RH and the other online brokers open it back up to buyers, then we will see what WSB is really made of. That is when you get to make it all work.

I have no doubt that there are funds and big players that have shorted this stock again thinking they are smarter than everyone on WSB.

I know you are going to hate to hear this, but the lower it goes, the more powerful WSB can be stepping up to buy the stock again. The only question is what broker do you use. Do you stay with RH, who is going to have the same liquidity problems over and over again, or do you as a group find a broker with a far, far, far better balance sheet that won’t cut you off and then go ham on Wall Street.”

Now, although Yahoo Finance listed both AMC and GameStop tied to Mark Cuban’s stock portfolio, he said in the AMA that he does not own them.

He mentioned to CNBC later that his son did trade AMC and Blackberry.

Mark Cuban on the SEC

Mark Cuban on the SEC

Mark Cuban and Elon Musk have been two billionaires that have blatantly spoken out against the SEC.

Since its inception, the SEC has sworn to protect retail investors but has only proven to be complicit to market injustices.

An out of touch Gary Gensler has made it rather clear that keeping his job is more important than actually enforcing the law.

Here’s what Mark Cuban had to say about the SEC:

“The SEC is a mess. I wouldn’t trust them to do the right thing ever. It’s an agency built by and for lawyers to be lawyers and win cases rather than do the right thing

If the SEC gave a shit about ANYONE other than Wall Street you would be able to go there right now and read bright line guidelines about insider trading, shorting, what is a pump and dump, what are the rules for cutting off the purchase of stocks like happened with GME et al

But they won’t. They would rather litigate to regulate, which means they love to sue people in order to create new legal precedents.

All you need to know about the SEC and how badly they want to fuck the little guy is that they have the option of using JUDGES THAT WORK FOR THE SEC when they sue you rather than you have the option to have jury of your peers in front of a judge that is independent. Thats how bad the SEC is. If you want fair markets that doesn’t benefit Wall Street call your local politician and show them this.”

AMC’s Short Interest Rises to 21.64%

AMC short interest today
Market News: AMC Short Interest Today | Franknez.com.

AMC’s short interest is rising again.

Last week the movie theatre chain’s short interest was around 17%, according to Fintel.

Now we’re seeing a sharp rise in shorting as the stock begins to move upwards again.

AMC shares are currently up +44% in the past month, with a recent high of $9.15 per share.

Shares went as low as $5.05 but the heavy demand zone around $6 levels were able to create a bounce.

Will AMC share prices continue to rise?

Let’s discuss it.

The Markets in General Are Bouncing

The SPY has created a triple bottom around the $360 level so far and hasn’t come down since.

First in June, again in September, and last in October.

October is the month when SPY began to bounce from this major level of support.

Around the same time, AMC Entertainment stock was having a bounce from its major level of support around $6.30 per share.

Is it possible the market in general has hit the bottom?

It’s very probable, although it’s fair to mention any official talks of a recession can easily crash the market.

If we do begin to see further continuation, we might enter a short squeeze season where stocks begin to have sudden price surges from shorts closing positions.

Last year, AMC and GameStop gained mainstream attention when retail investors began to buy heavily into these two ‘meme stocks’ despite their high short interest.

Users over at Wall Street Bets identified that with enough buying pressure, they could force short sellers to rush and close their short positions in order to refrain from taking on massive losses.

This buy-back of shares would further fuel the buying pressure already being applied from retail investors; GameStop shot up over $483 per share.

In June of 2021, AMC Entertainment stock surged from $14 per share to $72 per share.

Will History Repeat Itself?

AMC Short Squeeze
Market News: Will AMC squeeze again?

AMC’s short interest was around 21%-22% before short positions began to get closed.

AMC’s current short interest is at 21.64%.

This means that with enough buying pressure, retail investors might just have the chance to recreate the events that occurred last year, possibly even bigger.

But I’m curious to hear your thoughts on AMC’s rising short interest today.

Leave your thoughts below.

AMC stock news and highlights [2021 Archive]

FOX Business reported AMC to have a strong chance of a short squeeze.

Coming from a big news platform it certainly brings the stock sentiment up for most retail investors.

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

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

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

President and CEO of AMC Entertainment Adam Aron, announced AMC will reopen all 13 AMC theaters in New York City as of March 5th, 2021.

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 closing in June

Melvin Capital AMC Stock
Melvin Capital Hedge Fund – AMC – AMC Stocktwits

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.

Today, the hedge fund is scheduled to close in June of 2022.

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 (Archive 2021)

Adam Aron gives positive news on AMC Entertainment – Archive 2021
  • 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.

Is AMC Shorted?

AMC’s current short interest is around 21% (last updated 8/30)

As of 10/21, we’re seeing 0 shares have been made available to borrow, via Stonk-O-Tracker.

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

AMC Short Shares Available to borrow

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.

BREAKING: Anchorage Capital closes after betting against AMC stock

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.

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 highly likely. Trey has been a leader in the AMC community.

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

See what stock analyst Trey has to say.

AMC short squeeze – AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Stocktwits

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

We know that short-sellers eventually have to cover their positions. 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.

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

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

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

How are they doing this?

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

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
  • 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?

It seems we’ve already hit the bottom.

AMC continues to be heavily shorted through dark pools and other market manipulation tactics.

This price level can be seen as a buying opportunity for retail investors looking to squeeze shorts out of their positions.

We’re now sitting at $7.43 per share.

Join our topic discussions on the channel.

An AMC short squeeze will certainly make headlines.

Expect to see various gains prior to any sort of major peak as well as volatility.

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

AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Stocktwits

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+.

But I’m curious to know your thoughts on this.

Leave a comment at the end of the blog post.

Will AMC reach peaks like GameStop?

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!

I strongly suggest using a reputable broker such as Vanguard or Fidelity oppose to phone apps like Robinhood.

Simply because the broker colluded with market maker Citadel to halt the buying of ‘meme stocks’.

Read: Codes to see if your phone has been hacked

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 are determined anything below $100 is a buy.

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.

Related: Are Institutions Preparing to Close Short Positions in AMC?

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?

why hasn't AMC squeezed yet
AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Squeeze – AMC Stocktwits

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

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

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

Regarding shorts covering, retail investors need to squeeze them out of their positions by holding their positions and helping increase AMC’s short borrow fee.

You can keep tabs on AMC’s short borrow fee as it changes every day via. Ortex, or Fintel.

AMC short borrow fee

As of 10/21 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 18.20%.

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 brought awareness in an interview with Trey’s Trades that this selloff from Wanda is simply policy from China.

Retail investors should not be concerned.

Is AMC Ever Going To Squeeze?

All the numbers point towards the right direction for a massive short squeeze.

Shorts and hedge funds continue to lose money every day.

The interest is growing at an alarming rate and AMC’s current utilization is at 100%.

It’s possible the lives of these retail investors are about to completely change.

Retail Investors are Rising Against Wall Street Corruption

Retail investors are rising against Wall Street
Market News: Retail investors are raising awareness of market injustices.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have seen the rise of retail investors for the better part of 2+ years against Wall Street.

Conflicts of interest amongst Wall Street, banks, and mainstream media were uncovered during the ‘meme stock’ frenzy in January of 2021.

But it didn’t stop there.

Throughout 2021 and 2022, the retail community has raised awareness of market injustices, claiming the SEC’s chairman Gary Gensler has only been complicit to the illicit activities that occur on Wall Street.

The disadvantage retail investors have over hedge funds has never been clearer.

Between naked shorting, FTDs, OTC trading, Dark Pool trading, PFOF, and short and distort campaigns, the cat has been out of the bag.

The question now is what is being done to tackle the problems retail investors are facing?

Wall Street has been able to take advantage of the little guy through the predatorial practices mentioned above with no repercussions from regulators.

Will retail investors continue to rise against Wall Street in 2023?

There are no doubt activists will continue to push reform until there is real change that levels the playing field for retail.

People Are Waking Up to Mainstream Media

Elon Musk has been calling out mainstream media on Twitter for misleading information or ridiculous hit pieces.

The impact Elon is having on Twitter is something that has not been seen.

He’s been able to raise awareness by simply ratioing mainstream media accounts, often times putting them in their place.

People have always voiced their opinions and concerns with mainstream media, but now the people have the biggest influencer in the world backing them up.

Citizen journalism has already been exponentially rising as blogs and independent media websites begin to report what mainstream media is failing to report.

The people are now following more sites such as Franknez.com and Nezmediacompany.com for market news and retail updates.

Mainstream media has been used by big financial institutions to push agendas that cater to their financial interests.

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

This is something retail investors who purchased so called ‘meme stocks’ last year found out very easily.

The complex derivatives Elon is referring to could be an array of things such as options trading, HFT, swaps, borrowed stock, and even naked shares.

The Tesla CEO says hedge funds will short a company, conduct negative publicity campaigns to drive the stock price down, then cash out and do it multiple times over.

This tactic is what’s known as “short and distort”.

Hedge funds impose their influence on corporate media such as The Fool, Wall Street Journal, and MarketWatch to scare people out of their money.

How Can Retail Investors Make a Dent?

Wall Street and Mainstream Media | Wall Street corruption.
Wall Street and Mainstream Media | Wall Street corruption.

Retail investors will have to continue to raise awareness when activists and citizen journalism demands it.

But even retail investors have had their better days, with some even refusing to give their viewership to independent hosts and journalists simply due to capitalization involvement.

Retail investors have more power than they know, but it only combats mainstream media when they support citizen journalism or independent hosts working on spreading the truth.

The people will rise against Wall Street corruption, with or without independent journalists and platforms.

Though more can be done with the latter.

AMC’s Short Borrow Fee

AMC short borrow fee interest

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 10/21 is: 18.20% via. Stonk-O-Tracker, this is different from the short interest of 19% (last updated in August).

The longer shorts-sellers hold their positions means the higher the borrow fee may increase. This is great news for retail investors.

Shorts eventually have to cover their positions and when they do, AMC’s stock price action will continue to rise, inevitably creating a short squeeze.

Why AMC’s short borrow fee matters

While it costs the retail investor nothing to hold their position in AMC, it costs shorts interest.

Shorts are more willing to hold their positions if the short borrow fee is low so they’re losing money every day they hold.

Remember, shorts still think they can bankrupt a company that is no longer going bankrupt.. I know right?

As hedge funds like Melvin Capital lose money, the short borrow fee will go up to make up for some loses.

As the interest goes up, shorts will naturally cover.

If they don’t, they will bleed bad.

With the short borrow fee being so high at the moment, it has retail investors speculating a short squeeze will start soon.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital AMC stock
Hedge Fund Melvin Capital – AMC Entertainment

Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GameStop.

Well it turns out holding has paid off one way.

The company was down almost half percent their first quarter of 2021!

These are people who want to put your favorite businesses out of business. Ladies and gentlemen, the good guys always win.

If retail investors keep holding, institutions are going to raise the short borrow fee.

Unless hedge funds don’t start closing their short positions, they will cease to exist.

Or at least cease to run operations until they open a new firm from scratch.

But who will trust them? Their clients are losing money.

Breaking: Hedge Fund Melvin Capital Is Shutting Down in June(2022)

Hedge funds are a sinking ship

Hedge funds are losing money shorting AMC stock

Hedge funds have lost billions of dollars shorting both AMC and GameStop.

Shorts can either:

  1. Take the loses and close their positions right now where the stock price is around $7.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $7, resulting in even bigger losses.

With that being said, short sellers have lost more than a billion dollars this second quarter according to Ortex data.

Will retail investors be able to create another rally?

Read: Citadel loses billions: hedge funds are getting dragged down

How will this affect AMC stock price?

Wall Street is furious.

The little guy causing a disruption, what!?!

My personal take is retail investors are going to continue to see foul play.

You’re going to experience this from bogus headlines.

They’ll usually try to steer the public from buying AMC stock to keep the volume and hype down.

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

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

Expect AMC stock price to rise and continue to be shorted.

We will see volatility with shorts attacking the price action.

They do this by trading synthetic shares at lower bids in off exchange markets.

AMC Gamma squeeze before short squeeze

*[2021 Archive]

AMC Entertainment continues to be one of the most shorted stocks in the market.

Because AMC is an extremely high shorted stock, analysts continue to demonstrate their conviction towards an AMC short squeeze.

The key here is for retail investors to hold their positions as they see some momentum beginning to build. #diamondhands

AMC stock predictions (analyst)

AMC prediction from Fidelity TRADER PRO

*[2021 Archive]

Trey’s Trades walks us through the positive moves AMC has been making from an analysts perspective.

Trey presents his audience with transparent information and has been a key player in the analytics world for ticker symbol AMC.

Although this video is an earlier video, Trey’s videos are packed with relevant information that still apply to where the stock is today.

r/wallstreet bets and Discord

Members over at r/wallstreetbets and Discord anticipate AMC stock price can skyrocket as high as $1,000 with enough momentum.

The number of phantom shares hedge funds have to cover is astronomical which is why the community is calling this the mother of all short squeezes (MOASS).

AMC stock price wallstreetbets

By holding shares in AMC, retail investors are setting up a supply and demand scenario where short-sellers will eventually need to buy from them.

This in turn can drive the stock up as high as the retail investor chooses, theoretically speaking.

Large institutions such as Vanguard, Wells Fargo, BMO Harris, BlackRock, Fidelity and many more are buying AMC stock while it’s still low (via. CNN Business).

Take that for what it is.

Whether that number comes to fruition or not, retail investors will have to continue to hold and to add to their positions in order to skyrocket AMC’s share price.

We’re seeing more and more retail investors join the fight against short-sellers.

Short-sellers are the investors betting on AMC Entertainment to lose.

Can AMC reach $100K or $500K per share?

There’s been a lot of speculation that due to the possible number of outstanding synthetics could be in the billions, AMC may potentially squeeze past 6-figures.

I just recently found ReviewDork on YouTube.

Gabe talks about this possibility and walks us through some math.

Check him out.

But is it realistic?

Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

If you’re looking to take on a position in AMC you might want to get on the train before it takes off for good.

If you’re looking to get in for the short squeeze play, AMC stock is currently on bargain. This stock is still heavily shorted!

Retail investors are teaming up together to see their visions come to fruition.

And they’re not waiting on anyone.

What we do know is that the current share price is still affordable for most people.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

AMC stock consolidation

AMC hasn’t squeezed for two primary reasons.

  1. The volume isn’t all there yet. The volume needs to be quite high. Trey’s Trades referenced 500+ million being an outstanding number.
  2. Shorts are holding – they need to close their positions if retail investors are to squeeze them.

It’s not illegal for shorts to hold long on their positions; however, hedge funds may lose money every day they hold due to the incurred short borrow fees.

Fortunately for retail investors it’s free to hold.

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

What will AMC’s stock price be when it squeezes?

AMC

AMC’s stock price can really be anywhere.

It really depends on when shorts close their positions.

It would have been wise considering the stock continues to correct itself in an upward trend and has now set itself up for the perfect squeeze.

If shorts continue to play the long game, AMC’s stock price could potentially be higher when it squeezes.

In this case, shorts would have lost a lot more money due to accumulating and rising short borrow fees.

Can AMC squeeze after hours?

A question some people might have is whether or not AMC could potentially squeeze after hours.

AMC can certainly squeeze after hours when the market closes.

In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if it did this.

AMC’s stock price would continue to surge as retail investors watch immobile.

For one, shorts could decide to cover before the market closes in attempts to throw one final blow to retail investors.

This would give the price action to potentially come back down after hours.

Should you worry?

Although squeezes can last anywhere between minutes to hours, they can certainly last days too.

Volkswagen’s squeeze back in 2008 lasted approximately four days. GameStop’s lasted even longer.

Here’s how you can prepare for a short squeeze

A squeeze can technically happen at any time.

The short interest doesn’t necessarily have to be high.

Shorts could choose to close their positions with little loss opposed to massive losses.

  1. If you’re in a position to keep an open tab on your browser that is updated AMC’s stock price in real-time then I would suggest doing so.
  2. Own an Apple watch? Keep the stock in your background. This is a very convenient way to keeping tabs on the stocks performance.
  3. Join discords where you can be notified when something massive is going on.

When a squeeze happens you’ll know. Just don’t get a short squeeze confused with gamma squeezes.

Gamma squeezes are usually small spikes resulting from extremely bullish actions coming together at once. Otherwise known as relatively healthy gains of built momentum.

A short squeeze will be something more sudden and disruptive.

What should I do when AMC squeezes?

AMC stock price short squeeze

This is completely up to you!

You can choose to sell your entire position and collect your profits, or you can continue to hold and find out whether the squeeze continues to go up.

Unfortunately, we can’t time the spike.

For all we know, the initial squeeze might not be the potential price action.

This makes it difficult to calculate the best time to sell.

You could sell a portion of position and wait to see how AMC’s stock price moves.

We created a thread for you to share how you will use the money when AMC squeezes as a means to spread positivity and share with the community.

You can check it out here.

What is a circuit breaker halt?

A circuit breaker is usually a rule in the market that essentially pauses or halts trading for 5-15 minutes.

A common circuit breaker type is the Volatility Pause.

This helps smooth volatility in the market and prevent flash crashes.

It forces traders to take a 5 minute timeout, research the stock, news, etc.

Often times if a stock is spiking up and is halted, it will reopen higher.

Inversely, a stock selling off will often open lower.

Why this is worth mentioning

This is worth mentioning because it’s important for our readers and the ape community to be aware of possible halts as AMC’s stock price becomes more volatile.

If you happen to experience a circuit breaker halt do not panic.

It’s a policy to make sure trading goes as smooth as possible.

Important Advisory

It is important to note that I am not a licensed financial advisor.

Like many traders and self taught investors, all speculation is based on educated estimations based on highly reliable analysis, patterns, and documented news charts.

Where can I invest in AMC? What’s a good platform?

We’re currently seeing AMC trade at $7.95.

SEC Spent $460K on “Investomania” Meme Stock Ad

SEC Meme stock ad campaign costs
Market News: SEC spends nearly half a million dollars ridiculing retail investors.

The SEC spent nearly half a million dollars on the ‘meme stock’ ad campaign that ridiculed millions of retail investors.

A Twitter user had sent in a FOIA application inquiring about the costs to produce “Investomania”, the video published on the SEC’s official YouTube channel.

The agency that was established in the early 1930s to protect retail investors took a shot at millions of investors who participated in the ‘meme stock’ frenzy.

The frenzy became one of the biggest movements worldwide and exposed Ken Griffin’s Citadel, mainstream media, and the SEC in a web of conflicts of interest which catered to an array of market injustices that favored institutional investors over retail investors.

“Investomania” was a cold hit to the millions of average people who joined the stock market for the first time.

It ridiculed new investors and diminished what could possibly be one of the biggest movements in market history.

Let’s discuss it.

Is the SEC Complicit to Market Injustices?

is the SEC complicit to market injustices?
Gary Gensler – SEC Chairman.

The SEC has put retail investor’s concerns on the backburner for over a year now ever since the ‘meme stock’ frenzy of 2021.

Although Redditors and social media participants from around the world managed to create big success by driving up the share price of AMC, GameStop, and others (BBBY, etc.), much much more was discovered during the process.

This is why retail investors simply couldn’t just walk away.

‘Meme stocks’ became the average person’s first-ever investment in the stock market which means many entered plays based on FOMO, or fear of missing out.

When these stocks began to come back down, many faced serious losses in the process.

Those who didn’t take profits argued that the stocks were heavily manipulated and suppressed from further rising.

The U.S. House Committee on Financial Services found Robinhood and Citadel negotiated in ‘blunt’ conversations the night before ‘meme stocks’ were halted.

The DTCC on the other hand waived a total of $9.7 billion of collateral deposit requirements on January 28, 2021.

This act saved institutional investors from taking further damages and completely ripped off retail investors from either cashing in larger profits or becoming profitable in the first place.

The SEC Shows a Warm Welcome to New Retail Investors

SEC Chairman Gary Gensler said in an interview with Jon Stewart that they barely have the budget for coffee at their agency, let alone the budget to fight crime in the market.

Dark pools, off exchange trading, and various other loopholes have been used to work against retail investors feeding the pockets of multi-billion-dollar hedge funds.

Many have wondered whether the SEC or Gary Gensler himself is lobbied into allowing these market injustices to occur – a fine to play if you will.

Out of all the incredible findings retail investors have brought to surface, the SEC decided to spend nearly half a million dollars to ridicule retail investors – the very same people they swore to defend, instead of tackling real market issues.

A Twitter user shared the campaigns production and advertising expenses with the retail community.

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission FY22 Public Service Campaign.
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission FY22 Public Service Campaign.
'Investomania' advertising costs.
‘Investomania’ advertising costs.

The costs of the “Investomania” meme stock advertisement campaign also include skits on ‘crypto’, ‘margin calls’, and ‘easy money’ aimed at the retail crowd.

Former SEC Branch Chief Lisa Braganca stated she was “very disappointing to see SEC disparage investors in meme stocks as if they must have done it thoughtlessly”.

“Especially when the SEC permits most trading to take place in dark pools… how about a video about dark pools @GaryGensler?”

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?

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?

Citadel Has a Long History of Market Manipulation

Citadel Market Manipulation
Market News: Citadel and friends are entering the crypto space | Ken Griffin.

Citadel and friends are entering the crypto world very soon.

EDX Markets plans to bring ‘traditional finance’ to the crypto space, a not so ‘traditional’ space to begin with.

The exchange made up of Citadel, Sequoia, Paradigm, Virtu, Charles Schwab, and Fidelity is debuting in November.

EDX Markets will start trading a limited number of spot, crypto tokens starting with a November trial period, with the official launch in January, per Bloomberg.

Similar to trading equities and options, EDX will allow investors to buy and sell digital assets through their existing broker dealer, rather than an outside venue or directly through a crypto-native exchange. 

“We’re taking some of the best features of traditional finance and bringing it to the digital markets to make it more efficient, and bring that cost saving to investors,” Nazarali said.

Nazarali is the former global head of business development at Citadel Securities.

But as many are aware, these financial institutions have a long history of playing unfair.

Will these sharks taint the crypto space too?

Let’s look at Citadel’s market manipulation history.

Citadel Market Manipulation

2015

In 2015, an account operated in China by the brokerage arm of US hedge fund Citadel was suspended.

It was the latest casualty of regulators’ hunt for market manipulators and short sellers at the time.

The China Securities Regulatory Commission said that the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges had suspended 24 accounts as part of a probe into high-frequency trading.

The investigation focused on a practice known as “spoofing” in which an investor submits a buy or sell order but then withdraws it before a sale is completed — a practice that can mislead investors by creating the false impression that a stock is trading at a particular price.

Citadel confirmed that one of its accounts managed by Guosen Futures was among those suspended.

2017

SEC Citadel

In 2017 Citadel paid the SEC $22.6 million to settle charges of misleading conduct.

The hedge fund misled customers about the way it priced trades.

The SEC found that between 2007 and 2010, Citadel used two algorithms to execute stock trades on customers’ behalf that gave investors a worse price for their trades, even when Citadel knew better prices existed elsewhere.

“This affected millions of retail orders,” said Stephanie Avakian, the acting director of enforcement at the SEC at the time.

Citadel neither admitted nor denied the findings.

2021

In 2021, Failure-to-Delivers (FTDs) rose dramatically in the period leading up to January 28th, 2021, a phenomenon consistent with increasing short interest by market makers such as Citadel Securities.

FTDs are indictive of naked short selling, which occurs when a short seller does not actually possess the security it is supposed to borrow.

This practice is largely inaccessible to individual investors but accessible to market makers.

At the time, Citadel, Robinhood, and others restricted retail investors from buying ‘meme stocks’ in order to prevent escalating institutional losses.

Citadel eventually lost billions after betting against AMC Entertainment in 2021.

But the entire system needs a refresh – The DTCC waived a total of $9.7 billion of collateral deposit requirements on January 28, 2021, saving brokers, and screwing up retail investors.

2022

The Chicago Tribune published a piece explaining exactly what retail investors have been warning the SEC about.

Citadel Securities’ dark pool dominates a big part of the financial world, accounting for as much as half of U.S. stock market activity.

The Chicago Tribune says this prominent dark pool is run by Chicago Billionaire Ken Griffin’s Citadel Securities and has been targeting small scale retail investors.

And they’re not wrong.

Dark pools are typically involved in payment for order flow (PFOF), where they pay broker firms to receive retail order flow.

Brokers such as Robinhood and TD Ameritrade accept payment for order flow.

But retail investors have been bringing these nefarious practices in the market to light.

Short Sellers Target AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE)

AMC Preferred Equity APE
Market News: Short sellers aim at AMC’s newly acquired foundation, APE

Short sellers are targeting AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE), shorting both the companies’ emergency fund, and shareholders’ equity.

APE’s short interest has officially surpassed AMC’s short interest, now reportedly 30.10% via Ortex Data.

During the run to $27 we saw AMC’s SI tumble to 17% signifying released short seller pressure.

However, today we see short sellers have opened new positions, raising AMC’s short interest to 21.17% and creating bearish momentum for the stock’s share price.

Well, the same thing is happening to APE.

Short sellers have targeted AMC’s Preferred Equity hoping to make some cash during a potential meltdown.

But will it be that easy?

After all, there is a big demand for both these stocks – and with enough momentum; well, it could just create two short squeezes.

Let’s discuss it below.

Volume cools leading to the weekend

AMC and APE had big volume at the beginning of the week when AMC’s Preferred Equity debuted on Monday.

In fact, APE has now set a higher average volume than AMC sitting at 71.5 million.

That’s 22.5 million more in average volume than AMC’s.

The excitement over the new ticker has retail investors invested heavily.

But others are quickly trying to kill off any momentum created by the retail scene.

This morning ticker symbol APE rose to 100 in utilization indicating short sellers have now gone into a full blown out short selling spree.

But AMC and APE aren’t the only tickers whose volume or share price cooled down leading towards the weekend.

The entire market played in bears’ favor this Friday.

The SPY fell -2.81%, while NASDAQ fell -2.74%.

SPY has a level of support around $400 and if the market continues to downtrend and breaks this level, it’s very likely we see its next major level of support at $390.

But the market was heavily oversold which means it’s possible we begin to see a nice bounce up to $417-$420.

AMC and APE closed with 35.7 million and 13.6 million in volume respectively on Friday.

Will AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE) go up?

Will APE stock go up?
Will APE go up?

AMC and APE currently have approximately the same market cap of 4.7 billion each – due to the split.

The company was able to join the Russell 1,000 in June of 2022 when it managed to meet the $7.3 billion criteria after reaching $7.5 billion before the cutoff time in May.

When AMC reached its all-time high of $72 per share in June of 2021, the world’s largest movie theatre chain grew its market cap to an astonishing $28.44 billion.

AMC Market Cap June 2021
AMC Market Cap June 2021 – Source

AMC’s market cap increased as the value of its share price increased.

How did this happen?

Well, millions of investors began purchasing the stock like crazy – volume was reaching +500 million, +700 million, and +900 million during single trading days.

Once institutions saw there was heavy momentum happening on retail’s end, they began to jump in as well.

In order for AMC or APE to reach all-time high levels, the market cap will have to increase.

Because as soon as momentum picks up again, institutions combined with short sellers buying back their shares will further fuel AMC or APE’s market cap.

Will AMC and APE skyrocket?

This will depend on how valuable the company can become, no matter how fast or how slow it achieves this process.

Why is APE being shorted more than AMC?

According to the reported short interest data provided by Ortex, APE is currently being shorted more than AMC stock.

AMC Entertainment designed APE as a means to raise capital for a rainy day.

The company has access to a fraction of shareholders’ equity should they need to pay off debt or make a worthy investment in another business venture.

APE is a tool that allows AMC Entertainment to not only stay afloat in case of another catastrophic event, but it provides the theatre chain with opportunity to grow and progress.

Short sellers are targeting this massive foundation in hopes of crippling the century old company.

Things didn’t quite work out in short sellers’ favor last year when big bets were being placed against AMC during their bankruptcy announcements.

But retail investors were able to arm the CEO with billions to resuscitate the company, burning those who prophesized the doom of the cinema experience.

Now it seems short sellers are pursuing a vendetta against retail investors and the company.

Will GameStop See a Massive Short Squeeze in 2022?

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.

Today, the stock has undergone a 4-1 split.

So, will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again?

Here’s what we know.

franknez.com

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

Lets get started!

And if you’re not investing in the stock market and would like to learn how to buy GameStop stock or know where to buy GameStop stock, read my beginners guide on how to start here.

GME stock

GameStop closed at $40.53 on Wednesday, August 17th.

Trading volume is currently sitting at 9.3 million with 12.6 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.

And it recently went through a 4-1 stock split.

As of August 17th, it is trading at $40.53.

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.
GameStop NFT Marketplace News

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.

GME Stock Analysis

Roensch Capital goes over the data for trending stocks.

The information is very easy to understand and gives you insight in the market from an analysts perspective.

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

Important Advisory

It is important to note that I am not a licensed financial advisor.

Like many traders and self taught investors, all speculation is based on educated estimations based on highly reliable analysis, patterns, and documented news charts.

Volume is key to a second GameStop short squeeze

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

When retail investors continue to buy and hold GameStop stock, short-sellers shorting the stock eventually have to buy back the stock.

This demand and supply scenario results in various gamma squeezes.

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

Usually what follows after gamma squeezes is a short squeeze if it has enough volume.

The volume of shares depends on how much retail investors are purchasing GameStop stock or selling it.

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

How Soon Will A Second GameStop Short Squeeze Happen?

There is so much volatility occurring in the stock market at the moment.

Such volatility is usually a sign of an upcoming short squeeze as we saw back in January.

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

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

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.

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 its 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.

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.

Do you remember your first GameStop memory?

I’m sure you have many.

I remember the first time my brother and I went inside a GameStop it was unreal.

It was my first time inside an actual video game store. 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.

What are some memories you have of GameStop?

I would love to hear from you.
