It looks as if AMC has now entered bullish territory. And yet again sources such as The Fool and other hedge fund partners are trying to steer the public from investing in this specific stock. Shame on you shills. Well, just how high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

AMC stock price closed at $40.74 on October 15th. The share volume rose and remains healthy as AMC prepares to take off. We have broken the $30 and $40 levels of consolidation. How soon will AMC rip?

AMC Entertainment has had an amazing runup this year. The crazy thing is shorts haven’t even begun to close their positions. Ladies and gentlemen, the short squeeze hasn’t even started.

Most of the market has been on sale and AMC has been no exception to that until now. AMC wants to keep climbing. The stock continues to consolidate as short sellers find loopholes to short the stock.

Lets get started.

As some of you know, I update this article frequently. I update it with the intraday price action as well as any information pertaining to the stocks performance. A lot of the information on here will be left untouched as it is a means to archive a lot of the information from throughout the year.

What do we know about AMC stock price?

AMC’s stock price continues to be volatile although we’ve seen the stock is scared of single digit share price numbers.

No matter how many times this stock is attacked by short sellers, it keeps correcting itself upwards.

AMC stock price bull market

Key highlights

  1. We’re seeing AMC stock price enter bullish territory due to an increase of retail investors buying the stock.
  2. ‘W’ shape formations in the performance of the stock also indicate bullish territory.
  3. Retail investors and large institutions alike, like the stock. Buyers include Vanguard, Charles Schwab, Wells Fargo, and BlackRock.
  4. What causes AMC stock price to rise during ‘power hour’ is how many more shares are being purchased before trading hours close. As retail investors continue to buy the dip and hold, we’re going to continue to see this trend of perpetual gains.
  5. The stock price is still relatively low enough for majority of people to buy, but hurry before it’s too late.
  6. The short borrow fee continues to increase, this means shorts will have to close their positions soon

Adam Aron, CEO & President of AMC Entertainment

Adam Aron has done an outstanding job with the media in the past months and continues to show a positive and bullish sentiment towards AMC.

He is now praised among the retail investors community holding AMC. And for good reason too.

See what CEO and President of AMC entertainment has to say to CNBC news about AMC Entertainment reopening and the Reddit movement.

As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open 4/14
  • 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

In a more recent interview we get an exclusive behind the scenes moment with Trey’s Trades and Adam Aron.

If you haven’t watched the video you’re not gonna want to miss out.

In this personal interview from the CEOs home, Adam Aron talks about the 500 million share dilution, which by the way as of today has been taken off the table, as well as his experience and perspective behind the the Reddit phenomenon.

I wrote a small piece on Adam Aron being rightfully named the king ape here.

AMC’s Short Borrow Fee

AMC short borrow fee interest

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 10/15 is: 0.70% via. Stonk-O-Tracker.

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.

Hedge funds are a sinking ship

Hedge funds are losing money shorting AMC stock

Cramer said, anyone shorting AMC and GameStop are going to lose. And he’s right. Retail investors are holding until shorts are squeezed out of their positions.

Shorts can either:

  1. Take the loses and close their positions right now where the stock price is around $40.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $40, resulting in even bigger losses.

Ladies and gentlemen, shorts could have closed at $5. With that being said, short sellers have lost more than a billion dollars this second quarter according to Ortex data.

Things are not looking so good for them. And it’s about to get a whole lot worse as AMC stock continues to surge.

How will this affect AMC stock price?

I can imagine shorts and hedge funds alike must be 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 low bids.

AMC Gamma squeeze before short squeeze

AMC Entertainment is currently the most shorted stock in the market (via. MarketWatch).

AMC Gamma Squeeze Before Short Squeeze
AMC Most Shorted Stock

Unfortunately, MarketWatch has completely eliminated AMC from their list. Retail investors are suspecting foul play from the hedge fund affiliates.

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

Key: If investors want to see AMC squeeze, they’ll have to refrain from selling at the sight of early profits.

AMC stock predictions (analyst)

AMC prediction from Fidelity TRADER PRO

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-$10,000 mainly due to the stock’s popularity and trends in analytics. Yup, that’s crypto numbers.

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 itโ€™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.

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

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.

Personally, I’m open to this concept. Shouldn’t we all be? I just recently found ReviewDork on YouTube. Gabe talks about this possibility and walks us through some math. Check him out.

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, they lose money every day they hold.

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.

Short could have covered when they drove the price back down to $8. 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?

I wouldn’t worry if this was the case. 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. You’ll know when this goes to the moon. AMC’s stock price will break through the charts and leave earths atmosphere.

What should I do when AMC squeezes?

AMC stock price short squeeze

This is completely up to you! Congrats for holding and seeing this through.

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.

Note: Before roaring kitty blew up as the analyst for GME, only a handful of people followed him through and reaped the rewards.

We’re seeing another analyst obtain a similar following with AMC. Take that for what it is.

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

Vanguard

AMC stock price: quick overview

AMC sat around $5 for quite some time before moving back up to the $14 range. We’re currently seeing AMC trade at $40.74. AMC’s stock price has been trending upwards with consolidation and has been less volatile. This is very good price movement. AMC stock has never had a healthier setup.

What a storm. What a battle right? AMC keeps on keeping on, and although AMC has been on discount recently, the stock has finally broken its $30 level of resistance.

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?

franknez.com

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 $40.74 on October 15th. The stock has surged since early this year due to volume 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.

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.

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.โ€

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.

Is AMC Shorted?

AMC’s current short interest is close to 18%. As of 10/15, we’re seeing 450,000 short shares have been made available to borrow, via Stonk-O-Tracker. AMC continues to be heavily shorted despite what mainstream media claims.

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

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

AMC Q2 earnings for 2021

Quarter 2 earnings for AMC were absolutely amazing! I published an entire article on this information you can read all about here.

AMC Q2 2021 highlights

  • Record breaking $2 billion in liquidity
  • Increased revenue / tickets & concession
  • AMC to accept Bitcoin by the end of the year
  • GameStop partnership
  • Enhancing the cinema experience with sports and music performance

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 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)
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 a 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 continues to be heavily shorted through dark pools. This price level can be seen as a buying opportunity for retail investors looking to squeeze shorts out of their positions. We’ve seen resistant levels around $14-$16 recently which is a great push from $5. We’re now sitting at 40.74 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!

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.

Short sellers could have covered back in August when AMC’s stock price was trading at $30 levels. However, it doesn’t AMC is going back down to these levels. We broke past $50 but are hovering close to $40 again due to massive shorting in the market.

Read: AMC stock is primed to bounce back up: MOASS

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

As of 10/15 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 0.70%.

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.

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 around 88%.

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

Here’s Why People Are Buying AMC Stock: Investors Guide

Here's why people are buying AMC stock
Why are people buying AMC stock?

By now you’ve probably heard all the hype surrounding AMC Entertainment. If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I’ve been covering AMC since the beginning of February.

It is absolutely amazing to see more and more people begin to invest in the stock market. You can bookmark this step by step guide on how to invest in the stock market in case you haven’t opened your brokerage account yet.

My goal is to help guide you in your journey to becoming financially free.

franknez.com why are people buying 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!

Why are people investing in AMC stock?

Why are people buy AMC

People have the chance of a lifetime.

AMC was forced to close its doors to the world when the pandemic hit. AMC Entertainment suffered huge losses and hedge funds began doubling up on their short positions in attempts to bankrupt the company. Their goal was to get rid of the most respected movie theater franchise of all time, profit, and wash their hands clean.

Retail investors gathered on subreddit communities and decided to buy the stock and drive the price up; like they did with GameStop. This teamwork caused a gamma squeeze driving the price action from $2 up to $20. This allowed AMC Entertainment to raise enough capital for bankruptcy to no longer be on the table.

Since then, AMC Entertainment has been able to raise more than $2 billion dollars from life long partners. These partners have supported AMC since the inception of the company 100 years ago.

Retail investors saved AMC and are now looking to squeeze short sellers out of their positions.

AMC is currently the heaviest shorted stock in the market

Analysts discovered that AMC has a massive short squeeze potential. A short squeeze is a massive move up in price action. Short squeezes are violent and may produce 100%, 1,000%, and 10,000%+ gains.

What we discovered is that hedge funds shorting AMC Entertainment were overleveraging their positions. Meaning they were borrowing shares from brokers at an interest to drive the price down.

Short selling is the process of borrowing a share, selling it much lower, and profiting the difference when they pay back their lender. Short sellers usually bet on the price of a stock to tumble.

Here’s an example of short selling

AMC’s stock price was around $30 back in the booming party economy of 2016. Say short sellers borrowed 10 shares of AMC for $300 betting it would drop. Shorts would then sell the stock at the market value of $300 (you and I purchase it at $30) and wait for it to drop in due time. If the stock price fell to $25 per share then the short seller could buy back those 10 shares, profit the difference ($50) and give back the 10 shares they borrowed back to the lender.

AMC stock is going up, what happens then?

AMC stock is going up

Here is what’s attracted millions of retail investors and huge institutions such as Wells Fargo, Vanguard, Morgan Stanley and many more to AMC Entertainment.

AMC stock is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy and it is having an extremely healthy bullish run. The reason we’ve seen consolidation and red days is due to the massive amount of short ladder attacks conducted from short sellers and hedge funds.

A short ladder attack is a method used by short sellers where they transact synthetic shares amongst one another to drive the price of a stock down. This is only one of many ways we’ve seen foul play in the stock market.

Hedge funds shorting AMC are losing millions of dollars every day they don’t close their positions

Now here’s where it gets interesting. What happens to short sellers when a stock they’re shorting is going up instead of down?

The fee to borrow the share from their lender goes up and they’re pressured with two options.

  1. Pay the short borrow fee and continue to hold your short position in hopes the stock price will go back down, or
  2. Close your position, take your profit or loss, and possibly go long instead

Now, hedge funds such as Citadel and Melvin Capital have been quite stubborn. They’ve continued to overleverage their short position in AMC Entertainment to drive the price action down.

However, the AMC community isn’t leaving. It’s personal now and they’re willing to buy and hold the stock until shorts are squeezed out of their positions. Analysts have figured out that retail investors can continue to drive the price action up with enough volume in the stock.

Recently, there’s been a surge of new retail investors buying AMC stock. Short sellers keep tackling the upticks every time AMC soars. However, retail investors continue to buy the dips causing consolidation. AMC stock is currently trading around $40.78. The stock has been on discount recently but it continues to go up.

The data shows a MOASS

AMC Moass

MOASS, mother of all short squeezes.

Brokers have never seen this much shorting occur in a single stock in the existence of the stock market. The data predicts a short squeeze unprecedented like anything we’ve ever seen historically.

This is primarily due to the amount of synthetic shares and overleveraged positions that must be covered during a margin call. A margin call could force shorts out of their position resulting in a short squeeze.

How high can AMC’s stock price go up to? There’s no ceiling. However, more data will be released as the stock begins to squeeze.

Related: How high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

Markets are being liquidated

Massive institutions have begun to liquidate assets in both the stock market and crypto market. Retail investors cannot cause the extreme price drop we’re seeing in both markets.

I speculate institutions are building capital to prepare for margin calls or raised margin requirements.

Proposal ICC-007 APPROVED

This proposal provides brokers with the flexibility to raise margin requirements on investors holding risky investments, such as a short position in AMC.

Brokers need collateral. If short sellers cannot meet the margin requirement then they will be forced to liquidate their entire positions, resulting in several gamma squeezes and inevitably a short squeeze.

If margin requirements are raised then shorts will have to either deleverage their positions (gamma squeezes), or fund their accounts with capital. Is this massive selloff in both the stock market and crypto market related to potential AMC margin calls and regulations? I think so.

An abundant opportunity

amc money

The reason why retail investors are buying AMC stock is for the opportunity of a lifetime. Not only is the public starting to invest but big institutions on retail investors’ side known as ‘whales’ are bulking up on the stock.

“Beware of the stock” (paid) articles

Platforms such as the Fool, MarketWatch and InvestorPlace are hedge fund affiliates. Retail investors encourage newcomers to do their own due diligence oppose to reading FUD articles (fear, uncertainty, and doubt).

Is it too late to buy AMC stock?

That depends. Look at AMC’s current share price. If it squeezes to $100, $1,000, or even $10,000+ would the trade have been worth it if you bought today at it’s current share price? You decide.

AMC stock is going up and continues to leave hedge funds and publishers such as Yahoo Finance, The Fool, and other sources baffled.

Although hedge fund partners are sticking together to mislead the publics opinion when investing in AMC (and other “meme stocks”), we’re going to let you know why this particular stock is going up.

Please keep in mind that I am not a licensed financial advisor. All the information you are about to read is based on expert sources and will be presented in a manor that informs you why AMC stock is going up.

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.

Volatility is normal in the stock market

We’ve seen a lot of volatility in the market recently. If you’re a new investor chances are you might have been scared off to sell and then noticed the stock slightly go up again in the green tier.

Don’t feel bad, volatility in the stock market is normal. This doesn’t just apply to AMC stock. But if you haven’t sold, kudos to you. #diamondhands.

So, what’s causing the stock to go back up? Well, there are numerous reasons why AMC is back in the green tier. Keep reading to find out whether this stock might be a good pick for you.

Reasons why AMC stock is going up

reasons why amc stock is going up
  1. Large institutions such as Wells Fargo, Vanguard, BMO Harris, Charles Schwab, Fidelity, & BlackRock are buying the stock right now (via. CNN Business)
  2. AMC CEO Adam Aron, announced bankruptcy is officially “off the table” and have raised $2.2 billion in cash this new year.
  3. Because AMC is currently the most shorted stock (via. MarketWatch), the stock price has gone up and will continue to go up as long as retail investors keep buying the stock. *Unfortunately MarketWatch has removed AMC from their list. Retail investors suspect foul play from this hedge fund partner.
  4. AMC is currently the most held stock surpassing Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA) – via Nasdaq.
  5. Godzilla vs. Kong secures $9.6 million in ticket sales on it’s opening night! Keep reading below for the numbers on NEW titles increasing AMC Entertainment’s revenue.
  6. SEC is starting to crackdown on short sellers.

AMC Entertainment is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy

There’s actually a lot of positive things going on for AMC Entertainment despite what The Fool, InvestorPlace and other shill news might try to convince you of.

The sentiment behind AMC stock keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger by the day. This is primarily because people are smarter than these hedge funds think. Ultimately, the data speaks for itself.

Now, Adam Aron who is the President and CEO of AMC Entertainment has done an outstanding job with the media. In this video we can hear his optimism for the movie theater chain before AMC theaters began to reopen.

Adam Aron clip as theaters were beginning to reopen

As of April 2021 all AMC movie theaters are now open with many even selling out.

If you’re familiar with Trey’s Trades you’ve more than likely seen his interview with Adam. I wrote a piece on this to highlight key moments of the interview.

You can check it out here.

AMC Q1 2021 Earnings

AMC just announced their Q1 earnings for 2021. 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!

If you missed the conference you can check it out from Matt Kohrs imbedded here for your viewing pleasure.

AMC Q2 Earnings Call

I published an entire article on Q2 earnings call so be sure to read it here! AMC doubled their earnings and have a ton of exciting new things coming to movie theaters.

Key highlights include:

  • AMC accepting Bitcoin by the end of the year
  • Open to partnering up with GameStop!
  • Looking into licensing rights to show concerts and sports events on the big screen

AMC Entertainment has a great vision when it comes to innovation. I’m excited to see our movie theaters evolve to provide an even greater theatrical experience.

Fundamentals are also causing AMC stock to go up

AMC Entertainment as a company has a lot of partners and friends they’ve gained throughout the 100 years they’ve been in business.

They’ve been able to raise money to pay off debt and focus on ways to welcome people back to the movie theaters safely.

Revenue is a very positive factor playing into the fundamentals of AMC’s stock price action. AMC Entertainment is set to release a ton of awesome titles this year which has people excited for that movie theater experience.

AMC’s CEO is one great leader

With this being said, Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment is not backing down. Adam has talked about his experience saving Norwegian Cruise Line and how he intends to to keep AMC alive for as long as he lives to run the company.

If you haven’t seen his interview with Trey’s Trades you can watch the video embedded here for a more in depth perspective of what AMC Entertainment means to him.

Why are large institutions buying AMC stock?

Vanguard AMC

Speculation would point out AMC is possibly a good investment, contrary to what Yahoo Finance, The Fool, and other resources are leading the public to believe, right?

It is important to note that these institutions are purchasing millions in AMC stock. Just a side note here: if AMC isn’t a good investment like some sources are pumping out, then why are large institutions buying while the stock is low in price? Hmm..

My educated guess? Large institutions aren’t going to be wanting to miss out on upcoming gains from a short squeeze.

Aside from a short squeeze however, AMC Entertainment seems to be a good buy even as a long-term stock. Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC has shared his optimistic views towards the direction of his company.

AMC is a good buy with or without a short squeeze.

What is a short squeeze?

A short squeeze occurs when a stock jumps sharply higher, forcing short sellers to buy higher, causing them to lose money. This in turn makes the retail investor (you and I) a LOT of money.

This notion of an upcoming short squeeze is drawing in a lot of attention. This is why we’re seeing AMC stock go up as well. Its purchase share volume is going up.

And where there’s attention, there’s money to be made.

Volume is important for an AMC short squeeze

As more and more retail investors get in on AMC and continue to buy and hold, we’re going to keep experiencing the stock price rise.

Because volume is such an important factor, retail investors and institutions will need to not only buy the dips but the gains as well.

By buying the gains in increments, the market processes this as a demand in the stock; further driving up the share price.

The main reason why AMC stock will keep going up

A short squeeze needs volume

AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market.

Short-sellers such as Melvin Capital bet on the businesses like AMC to lose. These are the folk that don’t care about workers losing their jobs, or about the companies success. This hits home to most retail investors which means convictions towards AMC stock is strong.

The way these short-sellers make money is quite simple. They short the stock. However, they’re not making any money right now. In face, they’re upside down by billions of dollars.

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 and driving the share price to the ground.

Fortunately, retail investors like the stock and are against shorting it. This is why AMC continues to go up. Retail investors have all the time in the world to see this short squeeze through. Shorts however, are paying the price every day.

And if you’re wondering, yes this is exactly what occurred with GameStop. Except AMC might just be the MOASS (mother of all short squeezes).

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital

This is huge for retail investors. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock for quite some time now.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss itโ€™s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

The importance of this is very significant. AMC is not a dead cat. Hedge funds continue to short the stock in hopes that they can reverse what’s been done. Unfortunately for them it’s only a matter of time before shorts are squeezed out of their positions due to the increase in short borrow fee and utilization of the stock.

AMC Entertainment has been heavily short laddered in the recent weeks. However, the stock seems to continuously correct itself which is why we’re seeing AMC go up again.

For some reason AMC does not like single digit numbers. This stock is going to continue to test high levels of support as fundamentals push the stock in an upwards trend. Fundamentals such as earnings will play a major role in this organic push up.

r/wallstreetbets like AMC stock

r/wallstreet bets like AMC stock

The people, along with r/wallstreetbets do not want the movie theaters closed. They are purchasing AMC at the dip and holding. This is where the terms diamond hands comes from.

According to Robinhood, AMC is the most held stock beating both Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA)! Source: via Nasdaq.

This means AMC shareholders will eventually have leverage over the stock from short-sellers as the price goes up.

As long as retail investors continue to hold, we’ll begin to see a supply and demand situation.

Short-sellers will eventually have to buy from retail investors to cover their spots, inevitably driving AMC share price higher.

Positive AMC Theater news!

AMC movie theaters across the entire country are selling out! New releases are serving the movie theater industry very well.

Godzilla vs. Kong secures $9.6 million in ticket sales

AMC theater - Godzilla vs Kong

Warner Bros. said Thursday that โ€œGodzilla vs. Kongโ€ secured $9.6 million in ticket sales on its opening night. This has been a record debut for the pandemic. As of April 26th it has done over $400 million global!

Leave me a comment below if you watched the film. I personally loved everything about it.

Mortal Kombat & Demon Slayer outperform earnings

Mortal Kombat brought in 23.3 million its opening weekend. Critics expected Mortal Kombat to reach no more than 15 million. A huge victory for the cinema industry! Not only that but Demon Slayer drew in another whopping 19.5 million its opening weekend.

AMC theater Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat reps the biggest R-rated opening to-date during the pandemic. The beautiful thing is that we have other amazing titles coming to the movies that can continue to scale beyond these numbers.

The top 10 locations for Mortal Kombat were:

1. AMC Burbank Los Angeles, 2. Santikos Palladium San Antonio, 3. Cinemark Tinseltown El Paso, 4. Santikos Casa Blanca San Antonio, 5. AMC Orange Los Angeles, 6. Cinemark Pharr Town Center (Texas), 7. AMC Empire New York, 8. Cinemark Century 16 Corpus Christi, 9. AMC Gulf Pointe Houston, and 10. AMC Southlake Pavilion Atlanta.

Source, via. Deadline.

I have not watched Demon Slayer yet but Mortal Kombat was a fun film to watch. I grew up on the video games (shoutout to GameStop) and the older films so seeing this today made my year. If you have not gone out to your local AMC theater I recommend you do.

A Quiet Place Part II: $57 Million Pandemic Record

A Quiet Place Part 2 earnings
Movie theater earnings: A Quiet Place Part 2

A Quiet Place Part 2 debuted in theaters on Friday May 28 and broke pandemic records in the cinema industry.

Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part 2 topped Godzilla vs. Kong and Mortal Kombat combined on their opening night reaching $57 million over the Memorial Day Weekend. A huge congrats to the industry and AMC Entertainment.

As more Americans continue to get vaccinated, health concerns ease. AMC Entertainment is seeing a critical mass effect as the public feels safer. I’m personally happy for the century old company and its shareholders invested in the stock.

The Conjuring Earns $11.5 Million Opening Weekend in the U.S.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It earned $11.5 million its opening weekend and grossing 57.1 million worldwide. Congrats to James Wan and the movie theater industry. The Conjuring films are currently the top grossing horror franchise of all time with $1.9 billion at the global box office.

Wall Street analyst upgrades AMC Theatres

Wall street analyst says, ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ “Destroys lingering concerns around theatrical window importance and demonstrates a solid path to resurgence”, via. Hollywood Reporter.

Eric Wold goes on to say, “Consumers want to leave the house and return to the theater.”

There seems to be a massiveness of positivity going around for the theater industry, especially AMC being the leader. As AMC continues to increase their sales revenue with hit titles, you can expect AMC’s stock price to continue surging. Massive victory for the AMC theaters!

Upcoming movie news and revenue will be updated here so be sure to follow me on Twitter to know when the post has been updated.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

In short, no. With the price of AMC stock being affordable to majority of the public, it’s a steal right now. Especially considering it has set a new floor in the low $30 range and has touched $50 per share twice now. Once in June and again in September.

The ‘ape’ community plans on taking this stock above $100 fundamentally through buying pressure before squeezing shorts from their positions.

I strongly believe AMC will do great post pandemic, and apparently so do other institutions (with or without a short squeeze).

When Do Shorts Have to Cover Their Positions? (AMC)

When do shorts have to cover their position?

Every retail investor holding a position in AMC wants to know, when will shorts cover their positions? And I don’t blame you.

This one is a little tricky. See, it’s like saying, “when will retail investors sell their positions?”

franknez.com - when do shorts have to cover their positions AMC

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

Let’s get started!

Retail investors have been waiting patiently for AMC Entertainment stock to rip. You’ve been holding through the ups and downs and even buying the dips.

So, why aren’t shorts covering their positions yet? What do retail investors need to do to squeeze hedge funds out of their money?

Are shorts obligated to close their positions?

Let’s start with the fundamental question. Are shorts obligated to close their positions? Now, there are currently no rules regarding how long a short can hold before closing out their position.

However, lenders do have the right to demand the seller closes their position with minimal notice. This is rare and only occurs if the the seller isn’t paying the interest fee, or the interest fee is ridiculously high.

“A short position may be maintained as long as the investor is able to honor the margin requirements and pay the required interest and the broker lending the shares allows them to be borrowed.” – Investopedia

When an interest fee is extremely high, it makes a stock difficult to borrow which obligates the short seller to close their positions.

AMC’s short borrow fee rate as of 9/24 is: 0.80% according to Stonk-O-Tracker.

Keep an eye on this interest as it will determine just how much shorts are bleeding. Hedge funds currently shorting the stock are losing money every day. And regrettably for them it’s getting worse the longer they hold. I can feel a short squeeze coming.

Why does the short borrow fee matter?

The short borrow fee is an interest that shorts must pay for borrowing AMC shares. And although the interest continues to rise for them, shorts aren’t going down without a fight.

AMC short borrow fee interest

They will hold in hopes to drive AMC’s share price right back down to the floor. However, AMC is trending upwards now and has absolutely no intention of going back down.

Analysts data and AI predictions all point towards a high possibility of a short squeeze. Even Fintel’s short squeeze score has been as high as 80-90% in recent weeks.

AMC Short squeeze Score Fintel

This short borrow fee is going to continue to go up as AMC stock becomes harder to borrow.

For short sellers, a low short borrow fee is in their favor. They would much rather pay the fee and stubbornly continue to hold their positions against retail investors.

But, if the short borrow fee is high enough to hurt the borrower, they will be more inclined to close their positions before losing an excruciating amount of money.

The short sellers conviction is strong, even though they’ve already lost. It’s only a matter of time before they have no other option than to forfeit.

How can retail investors help drive the short borrow fee up?

Retail investors can help drive the short borrow fee up simply by holding their positions.

When AMC squeezes, retail investors will have to continue to hold their position on the way up. Not every short will close their positions immediately.

If we begin to see AMC’s price action rise monumentally, it is important to understand that there’s more potential because not every short seller has closed their position.

We might see AMC drop a little after it peaks. However, if retail investors continue to hold, it’s only going to continue squeezing more and more shorts resulting an further perpetual gains.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Community, this is massive. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock. These are the people trying to drive the stock to the ground.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss itโ€™s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider. Unfortunately for them, this is only going to get worse.

Retail investors are hodling to the moon. They are not waiting for $100 price action anymore, and some are certainly not waiting for $500+ share price anymore. The Reddit community is set new standards for the AMC’s stock price.

Hereโ€™s why this matters:

  • Not only are shorts losing money every day but huge hedge funds are bleeding billions of dollars due to retail investors holding
  • This is a huge win for retail investors – our favorite companies have been saved
  • Unless shorts close their positions, hedge funds will continue to suffer
  • Interest rates will continue to skyrocket for short sellers, enabling them to close their positions sooner than later
  • An AMC short squeeze might be closer than we think

Hereโ€™s what retail investors can do:

  1. Continue to hold your positions, itโ€™s free
  2. Buy the dips to counter any short attacks
  3. Share articles on social platforms that can provide value to the community and keep everyone informed
  4. Keep a close eye on the stocks performance so you do not miss the squeeze

Hedge funds are not going to be able to recover from this. Yes they can possible receive help from huge banks but this too will be at a cost.

Furthermore, borrowing money from banks won’t change the fact that shorts still have to cover their positions. Retail investors are buying AMC stock every day. Shorts are fighting a war they cannot win.

Important advisory: I am not a licensed financial advisory. I simply have a passion for finance and writing.

What happens when a short covers their position?

A short position will be profitable if it is covered at a lower price than the initial transaction; it is at a loss if it is covered at a higher price.

In AMC’s case, shorts who drove the price down to $5 but are still holding to-date are at a loss. AMC is currently trading at $40.01 as of September 24th.

When there’s a ton of short covering happening in a particular stock, it will result in a short squeeze.

What is a short squeeze?

What is a short squeeze?

A short squeeze occurs when a stock spikes in price action due to an increase of short-sellers closing out their positions.

We’ve seen a short squeeze happen with both GameStop and Volkswagen. GME topped almost $500 while Volkswagen spiked shy below $1,000 back in 2008.

Short squeezes are massively profitable for retail investors. These one-time phenomena are how people are able to accumulate wealth in such little time.

Read: How high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

So, when will AMC shorts cover?

Instead of exiting, short sellers are holding. Some shorts might be waiting for a more favorable price to close their positions.

Another way shorts will be forced to close their positions in AMC is through a margin call. This is when their accounts don’t have the sufficient funds to meet the accounts minimum amount of dollar required. At this point they are forced to liquidate.

Now, because there’s no rule to how long they can hold their positions, they’re in the long game like most retail investors waiting on a short squeeze to happen are.

The good news is that AMC bankruptcy is no longer on the table and Wall Street analysts are even saying the industry is on a solid path to resurgence, via Hollywood Reporter.

As we continue to see a high utilization and the short borrow fee increase, we can only expect shorts will cover sooner than later.

Related: AMC Margin Call: The Squeeze is Inevitable

What percent does the short borrow fee have to be?

AMC’s short borrow fee is currently at 0.80%, via. Stonk-O-Tracker on 9/24. AMC stock is getting harder and harder to borrow. There seems to be some sort of manipulation here. The interest should be much higher.

Short sellers have been borrowing millions of shares to short. It seems they thought AMC’s 500 million share dilution was going to go through. Funny enough Adam Aron, the CEO and President of AMC Entertainment actually scrapped that idea leaving short sellers in a deeper hole.

I personally think retail investors are going to experience the short squeeze of a lifetime. Strap in.

AMC’s price action will continue to go up

Journalists and analysts alike are now claiming AMC to be a big buy. Shorts can continue to hold their loses on paper for months to come, or close their positions while it’s at the current price action.

Closing now is recommended due to an overwhelming amount of attention AMC Entertainment has received.

With new titles coming to AMC movie theaters soon, we’re only going to continue to see a surge in price action due to an increase in the company’s sales revenue.

Even if shorts continue to hold, lenders will eventually run up the interest rate again and force them to cover. If you’re a retail investor reading this article, I’m already celebrating your success. Leave a comment below and let the community know what a short squeeze would mean for you.

Citadel Loses Billions: Hedge Funds Are Getting Dragged Down

Hedges funds lose billions of dollars shorting AMC Entertainment stock
Hedge funds shorting AMC Entertainment and GameStop continue to lose billions

Hedge funds such as Citadel and Melvin Capital are losing billions of dollars, and fast. They’re shorting a stock that is no longer on the brink of bankruptcy. This company is AMC Entertainment and it’s revival is thanks to the millions of retail investors buying the stock.

Citadel is one of the largest hedge fund managers in the world. And they’ve subsequently managed Melvin Capital to the ground. Melvin Capital suffered a loss of over 50% its first quarter in 2021 due to shorting AMC Entertainment and GameStop.

At some point you’d expect your clearing house to raise awareness on your risk management right? When you manage a group of hedge funds, you are responsible for the companies success, and failures.

What’s even more mind boggling is that short sellers continue to go against the tide despite suffering billions. Citadel might just end up bankrupting some of its partners.

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!

AMC retail investors now have the lead in this war versus short sellers. Newcomers are joining subcommunities and doing some detailed digging themselves. Bigger personalities are talking about AMC Entertainment’s once in a lifetime opportunity.

What collectively started out as a small community back in January is now becoming mainstream. There’s no going back. This group of retail investors only know forward.

CNBC shames short sellers

Hedge funds lose billions of dollars shorting AMC Entertainment and GameStop stock

CNBC’s Jim Cramer has publicly thrown short sellers under the bus in a recent video disusing the power of the retail investor community.

“Anyone shorting AMC or GameStop is out of their mind. Wallstreetbets is too powerful, and trying to bet against them right now is just giving them more ammo”, Jim Cramer. While you’re not wrong Jim, retail investors within the AMC community are known as apes, not wallstreetbets.

Jim Cramer is the host of Mad Money on CNBC and is a former hedge fund manager.

Investors shorting AMC and GameStop stock are estimated to have lost $754 million on Tuesday 5/25 alone, via ORTEX.

ORTEX Short Interest Data Software

ORTEX AMC Entertainment Stock short interest and data

ORTEX is a software that provides the most timely and accurate short interest available. They provide users with intra day and historical data for days to cover, shares on loan, utilization rate, cost of borrow and free-float on loan.

More hedge funds under Citadel’s management will be incurring loses very soon if they haven’t already. AMC Entertainment and GameStop stock are just getting started. When Citadel needs capital to cover positions, who do you think they’re going to collect it from? They’ve already liquidated accounts in both the stock and crypto markets. Up next, the hedge funds they manage.

Peter Hillerberg Ortex AMC short squeeze

“The sharp price increase can cause short position holders to try to close their positions by buying back the shares, causing additional demand which in turn can cause the share price to go up further.”

Peter hillerberg, co founder of ortex

Recently, hedge fund losses have amounted to more than $100 million on GameStop alone! This news was reported as of August, via WccFTech.

And although new hedge funds are taking short positions in both AMC and GameStop, I’m confident saying hedge fund losses will continue to skyrocket as more retail investors buy and hold these stonks.

AMC Entertainment defies Wall Street analyst predictions

AMC Entertainment’s stock is up more than 1,900% since January. A Wall Street analyst by the name of Rich Greenfield predicted AMC’s stock price would come down to $0.01 back in March.

AMC is currently trading around $40 and TA (technical analysis) charts show a healthy setup for AMC stock.

The Wall Street analyst was last seen blocking members of the AMC community online via. Twitter after the humiliating prediction . He has since made his profile on Twitter private.

Retail investors now own 80% of AMC Entertainment

Approximately 3.2 million retail investors currently own AMC Entertainment stock. AMC Entertainment is the most traded stock in the market at the moment. New retail investors want a piece of the action.

May 28 – Hedge Fund Losses

While older members of the AMC community, known as apes, have gained massive profits recently, they continue to hold their positions.

As more retail investors discover that AMC has the perfect set up for a MOASS (mother of all short squeezes), hedge funds will subsequently lose several more billions of dollars in the coming weeks,

New retail investors buying the stock will have a lot to catch up on. However, it won’t be very difficult. AMC’s community is very unified and you can find help from individuals at any given time as well as DD (due diligence) from yours truly, FrankNez, Trey’s Trades, Roensch Capital, and ReviewDork to name a few.

AMC’s market cap: $426M to $20.84B

AMC Entertainment market cap

AMC Entertainment’s market cap has grown immensely since the start of 2020 up until now. The companies market value has skyrocketed from $426 million to $20.84 billion dollars. The truth is people want to keep the movie theater business alive.

Retail investors are sticking it to the man who celebrated the economy collapse of 2008. All while taking the opportunity to make a life changing trade as AMC Entertainment boils for a short squeeze.

This AMC movement is more than just about making money now. It’s about the power of unification, and the strength to fight corruption in our nation.

A share recount threatens all short sellers

An AMC recount is a detailed investigation into who owns AMC Entertainment stock. An AMC share recount will also expose how many illegal synthetic shares have been generated from naked shorting. This process could last up to a month.

This process coming from a companies upper management could lead the SEC to take more serious action. A margin call would force hedge funds and short sellers to close their positions resulting in astronomical loses. For the retail investor holding AMC? A short squeeze.

Will GameStop See a Massive Short Squeeze Again?

Will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again?
Franknez.com
GameStop GME stock

Are you a new retail investor? Bookmark these investing tips from Frank Nez.

Just when we thought GameStop’s short squeeze was over we begin to see GME gain some momentum. GameStop has been the heart of the wallstreetbets movement and continues to have a strong sentimental hold on retail investors and gamers alike.

The retail investors who missed GameStop’s first squeeze either bought AMC shares or bought GME while it was still high. And if you got in when it fell back down to $40, well you’re doing pretty well right now. So, will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again? Here’s what we know.

franknez.com
GameStop Stock

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!

GME stock

GameStop closed at $190.14 on Wednesday September 22nd.

Trading volume is currently sitting at 2.2 million with 3.5 million being GameStop’s average volume. Today’s move was amazing for the ape community.

Understanding the short-seller

GameStop has taken the entire internet and finance world by a storm. What is happening nowadays. Retail investors over at r/wallstreetbets have opened Pandora’s Box on short-sellers and hedge fund institutions.

Short-sellers are investors who short the stock.

Shorting a stock is the process by which sellers essentially bet on the stock price to drop. They borrow stocks at a higher cost and sell the stock low, profiting the difference.

Short Selling GameStop Stock
How short selling works

We’ve seen GameStop drop down and consolidate at $40 after its gamma squeeze peaked close to $500 per share back in January. As of September 22nd it is trading around $190.14.

The stock has made a massive climb after some serious consolidation. It looks like GameStop is prepping itself for another gamma squeeze.

Could we finally see that GME squeeze everyone’s been waiting for?! I think its time.

See, GameStop’s short interest is still rather high and not all short sellers closed their positions back in January. This means the stock still has loads of room to go bonkers.

What is a short-ladder attack?

short-ladder attack is a strategy performed by short-sellers where they bid on the stock at a significantly lower sell price and purchase it from one another. Thus, driving the share price lower.

How do you spot a short-ladder attack? When the stock knows nothing but gains, but something keeps pushing it down until over and over again, that’s when you’ll know.

Why GameStop has potential for a second short squeeze

  1. Short-sellers didn’t learn their lesson from the first time. GameStop stock is still being heavily shorted.
  2. With GameStop becoming a technology company, its value has not only significantly gone up but it now has even more potential to keep driving its momentum.
  3. Retail investors have a strong conviction towards GameStop investment. This means they’re not willing to sell the stock which in turn creates a supply and demand scenario with short-sellers who have to close their positions.

Short Share Availability and Short Borrow Fee Rate

You can see GameStop’s short share availability and short borrow fee rate using this link (via. Fintel)

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.

GameStop announces fourth quarter earnings for 2020 (ARCHIVE)

GameStop announces fourth quarter earnings for 2020

GameStop announced that it will be releasing its fourth quarter and fiscal earnings for 2020 on Tuesday, March 23rd after trading hours.

This announcement is very important because owners of the company will go over earnings, as well as future assessment that let retail investors know the direction of the company as a whole.

This of course can have a very good impact on the stock price should the reports come back positive.

Here is the link to GameStop’s news release –> LINK.

However, like most companies affected by the pandemic, the numbers for the last quarter weren’t the best. This shouldn’t affect the stock price moving forward though. There’s too much sentiment surrounding this stock now.

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
  • GameStop introduces Matt Furlong as the new CEO of the company.
  • GME shares are still up nearly 1100% this year-to-date with the company’s valuation at $15 billion.
  • Bullish GameStop options are still currently being heavily traded

Prior to GameStop, Matt Furlong worked at Amazon in Australia overseeing the growth of operations. He also worked in brand and marketing for Procter & Gamble years before.

The skills to grow operations and to properly brand and market will benefit GameStop immensely.

What can retail investors do to tackle shorting?

If retail investors want to counter GameStop’s stock price from plummeting, they’ll have to continue to hold and buy the stock.

This short squeeze play will require patience.

Important advisory

If you hold a position in GameStop, it’s important that you ask yourself what your reason for holding is. Does your DD provide you with the confidence to stick to it longer if need be? If so, stick to your convictions and trust the process.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get in on GameStop before it gamma squeezed so I took a position in AMC instead. Taking this position has been one of the best financial decisions I’ve ever made.

I would take a position in GameStop if it was more affordable. Regardless, I like the stock and I love the community even more.

Will GameStop finally short squeeze?

I think GameStop is preparing itself to put short sellers out of their misery. The stock has been havoc to hedge funds and we can tell they’re giving out primarily due to this massive breakthrough we’re seeing now.

And although I personally don’t hold GME stock, I have a lot of awesome memories at GameStop which I would actually like to share with you at the end of this article.

Now let’s talk about a little justice. A major hedge fund that was attacking GameStop has now been reported to lose a significant amount of money.

Bookmark: List of momentum stocks: Interest and utilization

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin capital suffers 49% loss 1st quarter of 2021

Ladies and gentlemen this is massive. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both GameStop and AMC stock.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss itโ€™s first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

Hereโ€™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

We’ve see GameStop’s short borrow fee decrease but I wouldn’t be surprised if it begins moving back up very soon. Hedge funds have been trying to obliterate our beloved GameStop from the face of the planet. Something about them losing a lot of money feels like justice.

Believe me, I’m 100% for making money. The ethical way. You should be supporting beloved companies, not targeting them just because you see an opportunity to kick someone when they’re down.

Karma is about to get a lot worse for hedge funds betting against both GameStop and AMC.

Read: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

Will GameStop stock go up again?

As long as the stock continues to be shorted and held, GameStop can expect a series of gamma squeezes to continue pushing the stock up. This will inevitably lead to the ultimate short squeeze.

Fundamentals can also drive GameStop’s stock price up. The company will have to run efficiently by being able to meet projected goals. Although this is not a fundamental play, mainstream media still has some influence over this.

Short sellers continue to face devastating losses from shorting GameStop. Hedge funds are about to burn their second hand after playing with fire again.

GameStop memory

Leave a comment below. 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. The 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. Leave them in the comment below.

4 Meme Stocks Causing A Disruption In The Market

Meme Stocks Reddit
Meme Stocks List

Meme stocks have been causing a disruption all of 2021. You might have heard of the infamous GameStop and AMC rallies that originated from the Reddit group, r/wallstreetbets.

Here’s a list of meme stocks causing a disruption in the stock market.

franknez.com

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

Lets get started!

If you’re new to the blog, be sure to browse the incredible library of financial knowledge when you’re done reading this post!

And if you’re not investing in stocks yet, bookmark this article where I walk my readers step by step on how to start.

What’s A Meme Stock?

A meme stock is a heavily shorted stock discovered by retail investors, usually on forums such as Reddit or other sub communities.

Retail investors will then hype these so called ‘meme stocks’ and immensely increase the buying pressure of a particular stock to drive the share price up.

How Long Does It Take For A Meme Stock To Go Up?

We’ve seen that these stocks may take a month to several months to see some serious upswings in the market. Retail investors pump the price by buying the dips and holding the stock until their mission is a success.

While not all meme stocks are pump and dumps, the concept is to pump a stock and hold it to further elevate the floor.

The end goal is to squeeze shorts from their positions to drive the stock price ‘to the moon’. Here’s the most current list of meme stocks seen in the community.

#1. GameStop, GME Stock

GameStop Meme Stock

Number one on my list is GameStop. GameStop notoriously put many short sellers and hedge funds under stress, starting this incredible retail movement.

GME stock began squeezing just below $500 per share before Robinhood halted buying pressure from retail investors, ultimately limiting its growth potential back in January.

This meme stock is currently up more than 1000% year-to-date. Retail investors continue to hold the stock in order to squeeze the remaining shorts from their positions.

Read: Will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again?

#2. AMC Entertainment, AMC Stock

AMC Meme Stock

And by far the most popular meme stock at the moment, AMC Entertainment stock. Retail investors who missed getting in early on GME stock saw AMC stock was heavily shorted and decided to bulk up on this meme stock.

The stock sharply rose up to $20 per share in late January before ultimately coming back down to $5 per share. After several months of ‘apes’ buying and holding the stock, AMC Entertainment stock rose to $72 per share and found a new bottom around $32 per share.

The meme stock has been trading in the low $50 range and is currently set up for a short squeeze.

Read: How high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

#3. GREE Stock (Formerly, SPRT)

Before its merger with the blockchain compamy Greenidge, SPRT stock had reached a high of $35 per share before ultimately plummeting back to $11. It has now merged with Greenidge and its ticker symbol is now GREE.

This meme stock perhaps lost its status as it still had potential to squeeze higher prior to the merge. However, this stock still caused quite a disruption for short sellers shorting the stock.

This stock has now become a long-term stock depending on your conviction towards blockchain technology.

Read: What does an SPRT merge with Greenridge mean for retail?

#4. Vinco Venture, BBIG Stock

Vinco Ventures Meme Stock

BBIG stock is a meme stock that surged from $1.25 to close to $11 per share. The stock’s retail momentum has it up more than 500% this year-to-date.

In order for you to have made massive moves with these stocks you would have had to opened a position in them earlier this year.

While investors who bought these stocks early this Summer still profited, investors who bought after could be breaking even or under significant gains.

These Meme Stocks Still Have Room To Squeeze

What’s mind boggling is that these meme stocks are still heavily shorted by hedge funds and short sellers.

I update the short interest data daily here for these stocks plus other retail favorites.

GME has been in the high $100s but has now reached $200 again. AMC finally broke its floor of $30 per share and is trading in the low $50s again. The other meme stocks show an increase of short interest data which means they still have room for growth.

Want To Stay Updated On These Momentum Plays?

If you’re thinking about investing in one of these momentum stocks, be sure to do your due diligence first before putting some serious cash first.

Once you have the data at hand, make an honest assessment for yourself and decide whether it is the right financial decision for you to make.

The AMC community has proven to be one of the most open, accepting, and positive communities so I definitely recommend checking it out even if it’s to see what the discussions are about.

Luckily, I update the community with trending stocks and keep an eye out on the data so you’re up-to-date on the next stocks to buy before they blow up. My readers who found out about AMC early this year are now up tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars!

GME Stock: Why It Can Still Skyrocket Past $1,000 Per Share

GME Stock

A while back I wrote an article debating which stock you should invest in, AMC or GME stock? The premise of that article was to identify which stock was more convenient for the new retail investor.

See, both are great momentum stocks to hodl, but GME stock is a lot more expensive for the newcomer to buy. And although AMC has now become the more popular stock, I have a good feeling those hodling GME stock can still see massive gains. Here’s why.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to talk about GameStop stock, ticker symbol GME. Lets look at the data that states this stock is not done climbing up.

Lets get started!

If you’re like me, you probably didn’t get a chance to get in on GameStop before it began to create a ruckus in the financial world. Or perhaps you were lucky enough to get a few shares.

I’m a strong AMC shareholder and will not buy GME stock only because I rather increase my position in AMC. AMC’s short interest is higher, utilization is higher, and so are the shares on loan. It’s also more affordable.

But don’t get me wrong, the reason I’m publishing this post today is because GME stock has enough data that proves it has more juice to squeeze. So, if you’re holding GME stock, this article should help you armor up your conviction towards your stock.

GameStop Short Interest

GameStop’s short interest is still rather high. A short interest above 10% of the float is considered to be high. GME’s current short interest is sitting at 12.86% via. Ortex.

Just to compare, AMC’s is at 18.38% which a short interest of 20% or higher is considered extremely high.

Why Does Short Interest Matter?

Short interest the number or percentage of short shares that have yet to be covered. For stocks with high short interest this means it is possible to squeeze shorts out of their positions.

GameStop stock is considered to have high short interest therefore it has slack to keep moving up. Not all shorts have covered their positions!

If you hold GameStop stock, keep holding it. The longer you hold it, the more money short sellers lose on paper. Once they can’t afford to hold GME stock they’ll be forced to cover.

Remember, it costs you nothing to hold.

GME Utilization Rate

GME stock utilization rate is currently 34.24%. This more than a quarter of the available shares in the market are loaned. APPL for example, may have less than 1% because there’s not a large demand for shorting the stock.

A high demand for shorting GME stock means there’s a play to squeeze shorts out of their positions. GME shareholders still have a chance to make a ton of money.

Short sellers have not backed off from shorting GameStop and continue to play with fire.

Will Utilization Go Up Again?

If more short sellers open short positions then GameStop’s utilization will certainly go up. At the moment, it seems that there’s only 34% of the stock that’s being borrowed.

I personally don’t think shorts will try to go up against GameStop again. Those that are still shorting it have been holding on for quite some time. However, it’s only a matter of time before they too close their positions and GME stock surges again.

GME Stock: Shares On Loan

GME’s shares on loan refers to the number of shares that are being borrowed. GME stock has approximately 6.80 million shares on loan. We essentially convert the utilization percentage into the actual number of shares that are being borrowed.

That’s a lot of shares that still need to be covered by short sellers borrowing the stock.

GME stockholders could take advantage of the fact that the stock has been on discount recently. Especially if you’re still looking to increase your positions in GameStop stock.

Otherwise, GME stock is a hold play right now where patience will bear some sweet fruit very soon.

Charles Schwab Raises Margin Requirements

Charles Schwab just raised margin requirements for short sellers shorting both AMC and GME stock.

This puts short sellers under tough conditions since they’ll need to keep more cash at hand to continue borrowing AMC and GME stock.

And although we’ve seen a little bit of institutional selloff, Charles Schwab continues to hold GME stock. An institution that has not sold GameStop is Vanguard. Vanguard is one of AMC’s biggest institutional holder who continues to buy the stock to-date.

So if there’s something GameStop shareholders can take from this is that institutions are still holding GME stock, and there are still enough short sellers to squeeze out of their positions.

How High Will GME Stock Go?

So, can GME stock reach $1,000 per share. It’s certainly a possibility given that GameStop’s dark pool trading percentage is rather high, according to Stonk-O-Tracker data.

Dark pool trading in GameStop has ranged between 30%-50%. This means 30%-50% of short selling has occurred behind closed doors. Short sellers are able to keep their short borrow fee down with this loophole as well as conjure up naked shares to swap with one another.

However, they’ll eventually have to close every synthetic share they’ve ‘borrowed’ to short the stock. This is massive for GameStop just as it is for AMC.

Is It Too Late To Buy GME Stock?

I would say that you will no longer be able to buy GME stock below 3-figures. If this figure is too expensive for you to build your portfolio then it absolutely is too late.

However, if you’re looking to diversify your momentum stock portfolio, GME stock could be a good stock to hold. Otherwise, you’re better off buying the heavier shorted stock that is significantly more affordable at the moment, AMC.

Here’s Why Red Days Shouldn’t Scare AMC Stock Holders

why is amc down
Why is AMC stock down?

I’ve seen a few retail investors literally destroy their day just because AMC is down for one day. Ladies and gentlemen, lets take a step back and realize look at the overall stock chart. Days like this is where it is all earned.

Red days combined with FUD are going to test you. AMC stock experienced a downwards consolidating phase due to low buying pressure and massive amount of shorting. However, we’re finally beginning to trend upwards again.

If you thought of selling today but didn’t, this is what diamond hands are made of. Diamonds are made under pressure. Don’t let one red day ever ruin your mood. That’s not the ape way.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I just want to talk to the community. I love engaging with each and every single one of you on social media but today I have a message.

Lets get started!

The battle of $8.01

The battle of 801

If you’ve been following me for a while you know that I’m a longtime AMC stock holder. I’ve seen it all. The battle of $8.01, I was there; I bought that day. The Discord chat groups were blowing up. There was so much anxiety and anticipation during this rally.

Chat after chat to push and hold was all you saw during this battle. On the last second before the market closed, we were victorious. We had reached $8.01 where call options in the money would help us move forward.

There were more battles like this. Like breaking the level of resistance at $14 for example. Where every time we reached this level, Wanda Group would cash in; further diving the stock price down.

It’s a war community. It’s a financial war between the apes and short sellers. Good versus evil, truth vs corruption and chaos. Are you going to let a bloody day ruin your entire day? Or are you going to prepare for the fight that will lead you to victory?

And if you can’t control your emotions, don’t take it out on the community. We’re not children.

A message to seasoned apes

We’ve been fighting this together. We’ve been part of this movement since the beginning. Now it’s up to us to pass down the information we’ve uncovered to the new infantry that has joined this amazing community.

We must remind our new apes what it takes to hold AMC stock, and that they’re partaking in a part of history that will always be remembered.

And if you’re a seasoned ape that’s growing impatient, use my strength to hold up. I’ve got your back, Trey has your back, and other community leaders have your back.

The matter of the fact is AMC continues to be heavily shorted which means the squeeze play is still very heavily on. When we squeeze these shorts out of their positions, we’re going to celebrate like never before.

A message to the new apes buying AMC stock

This is no game. You’ve opened a position at a higher price than most of us. But your risks will be rewarded if you dive into the due diligence we’ve found and strategize accordingly.

The lucky part? You got in right before this short squeeze play. I’m happy to be able to provide you with insight and knowledge on what’s been occurring. Welcome to the community and prepare yourselves for a rollercoaster like no other.

You’re about to see some serious gains, and some serious losses. However, it’s only a gain or loss if you sell. What your account reflects during the intraday is only on paper. It’s not real yet. Not until you decide to make it real. So if you’re going to make anything on paper real, make sure it’s some massive and life-changing gains. This is not financial advice but advice from a friend.

Community leaders will continue to post due diligence for the community to read. I’ve said this a few times now. This information is simply for record keeping purposes only; for the archives.

I’m documenting what’s occurring during this short squeeze timeline, even if articles and DD don’t have anything to do 100% with a short squeeze play. The information is important nonetheless.

The AMC short squeeze message

The message has always been simple and no one says it better than Trey. Buy and hold. It’s that simple. No matter what other news is occurring, holding is going to be your path to a successful trade. Remember, this is a trade and not an investment.

Hedge funds are losing millions to hold their short positions every day and have lost billions of dollars along the way. Meanwhile, seasoned apes have seen gains to-date. We’re winning as a whole.

If you got in during this temporary runup, know it’s only temporary. Zoom out and look at the yearly chart. We experienced AMC run up from $5 to where it’s at today. As AMC continues to run up, you too will see this significant gain as the price increases.

Why was AMC down today?

The answer is simple. It’s for the same reasons we’ve had red days and red weeks in the past. AMC stock continues to be heavily shorted by hedge funds. They’re borrowing stock left and right. I update the numbers here every trading day.

Even if you’re a new retail investor buying AMC stock, you must look at the movement and gains as a whole. Hedge funds lose millions of dollars every day they have not closed their short positions in AMC. You and I experience gains or losses on paper with no additional fees.

Their losses from fees aren’t on paper however, they’re very much real. And although they continue to hold their positions, there will come a point where they’ll have to suck in their pride and take the L.

A message to short sellers

You should have closed at $5. That is all. No I’m just kidding. In fact I’m glad you didn’t close at $5 and you want to know why? Because the AMC community grew and it allowed us to become a stronger force than you could have ever imagined.

Not only that but more people now have a chance of beating you at your own game. Every person you allowed in now has a role in history as this play continues to unfold.

Every single one of us will hold our positions until you’re wiped from this play. You are cornered. All attention is on both of us. Who do you think the public is going to choose. Corrupt investors willing to bankrupt businesses with no regard for the economy or the people, or for the people fighting for financial freedom?

Close your positions while you’ve only been exposed to this community, or keep holding and get exposed to the world. Because once this is over, names will be out. Go back in time today, and make your little problem less bigger.
