    A new short squeeze in GameStop and AMC? One social-media sentiment tracker says one is brewing for ‘either today or very soon’ - Published: May 18, 2021 at 12:43 p.m. ET - By Thornton McEnery

    Mentions of AMC spiked more than 800% Tuesday morning, while mentions of GameStop soared over 1,400% by volume, according to one social-media tracking platform.

    The two biggest “meme” stocks are giving retail investors something to talk about on Tuesday, and leading at least one social-media tracker to predict that another short squeeze may be about to erupt.

    GameStop GME, 1.90% and AMC Entertainment AMC, 0.50% got off to very different starts in early trading Tuesday, but raucous social-media chatter around both equities before the opening bell eventually put both stocks back on the same trajectory that they have been on for days.

    According to HypeEquity, a platform that compiles social-media activity on individual stocks and uses that data to track what it calls “social sentiment analysis,” said that mentions of AMC spiked more than 800% Tuesday morning, while mentions of GameStop soared over 1,400% by volume.

    That surge in popularity augured very differently for the two meme stocks, with AMC moving up for its eighth-straight day while GameStop fell as much as 6% in the first half-hour of trading. In addition to their extremely online popularity, both companies have spent the first half of 2021 leveraging their meme status to get out from major debt loads with significant new equity offerings.

    But HypeEquity’s data indicated that GameStop’s day might see a turnaround.

    Comments about buying GameStop outpaced those about selling, and while AMC’s social-media action evinced an opposite trend, more than 20% of comments referred to both AMC and GameStop. Perhaps most tellingly, HypeEquity’s data showed that roughly 8% of comments on both stocks included the word “squeeze.”

    “When looking at the comments themselves,” said HypeEquity founder Travis Rehl. “There’s a clear desire for a short squeeze either today or very soon.”

    Reports of short sellers in GameStop, or those betting for declines in the company’s shares, were circulating widely on Monday, and Tuesday’s early price action combined to create one clear narrative; fighting hedge funds that users believe are renewing their campaign to short the meme stock. So-called meme stocks are ones that tend to be influenced by hype on social media rather than just company fundamentals.

    “Remember, their portfolio full of derivatives is nothing against the power of HODLING the stock,” proclaimed Mexicanred1 on r/Superstonk. “There’s only one way this can go… Just up.”

    Just after 11 a.m. EST, shares in GameStop appeared to respond to that sentiment, popping more than 4% in less than 10 minutes and going briefly positive on the day. Shares of AMC surged almost 3% in the same period.

    At last check, GameStop shares are down 1.1% but had been up nearly 12% so far this week. In the year to date, GameStop’s stock is up nearly 850%, FactSet data show.

    Since GameStop’s rise in late January, retail investors have remained bullish on the stock and were re-energized when Keith Gill, the trader on Reddit known as DeepF—ingValue, disclosed that he had doubled down on it.

    Meanwhile, AMC shares are climbing 0.6% on the day and have gained more than 8% since the start of the week. For the year, AMC’s stock has risen more than 560%.

    After $AMC reached ATH, today it's taking a break at $47.91. This is actually a great ending of this amazing week of $AMC. In fact, all data is pointing to a stronger uprun storm in upcoming weeks. Today's closing is way above old ATH, we know that

    * all open short positions before this week are deeply trapped,
    * more than 18M shares need to be delivered for the ITM calls expiring today,
    * potentially more than 10M shares are needed for next week call option delivery assuming price will go above 50 next Friday. This number can be way bigger if next Friday closing is much higher.

    In addition to what we have already known about $AMC in last few months, let's simply put together the followings to see what the current picture of $AMC is:

    * After 20M new shares going into the market, we can still stand at today's closing, way above old ATH, amazingly strong.
    * More importantly, the first 8.5M shares had almost no power to bring price down, and price recovered quickly after the second 11.5M shares out.
    * Today's closing was heavily suppressed to handle today's option contracts - this move was actually expected.
    * There will be no more new shares out to the market this year (according to news release). So the other side can no longer have this level of power by easily accessing to a huge number of shares within a week/days.

    And more

    1. All shorts before this week are trapped because today's closing is way above old ATH.
    2. Shorts receiving margin calls will have to buy-to-cover that will trigger short squeeze.
    3. Short squeeze will drive price higher to trigger gamma squeeze.
    4. Here (2) and (3) will keep pushing each other to drive price higher and higher.
    5. FOMO will bring more longs into play and drive price higher while price is rising up.
    6. Longs will buy more to take this unique opportunity.
    7. More foreign investors may join in like what happened in India and Korea.
    8. Shares available to short are drying out, so the other side will have less and less power to drive price down.

    We had a great week, but don't be surprised if you see FUD around this weekend. The above give us more than enough confidence to stay calm and relax on this weekend; the best for longs is to do so, enjoy the weekend and come back to the ride next Monday. Hold strong, buy the dip within capacity of spending and risk taking. We know that we are on the way up. GLTL.

    BREAKING NEWS courtesy of ORTEX:

    "Intraday Securities lending data shows that the lending of $AMC shares is down with 5.5 million shares over the day. This indicates that some #ShortSellers have started to close their positions."

    "To short a stock, you have to borrow it and then sell it.

    To return it, you have to buy the stock back, wait for it to settle before returning it to the lender.

    The shares returned today have not been bought today."

    // Yesterday the amount of shares covered were about 2,6M IIRC, and that sent us flying. I'll let you do the math on these supposed 5,5M. (hint: we are going interstellar)

    Today is a big day, and this week is a big week. While $AMC share price has been suppressed in last few days, we just had the announcement today about $AMC share counts. The news release shows an image which all of us have recently been talking about, and it is basically consistent with what we thought.
    I am sharing a simple summary that may help to draw a clear and simple picture based on public data.
    - 501,780,240 shares outstanding as of June 2, 2021
    - approximately 4.1 million1 individual shareholders eligible to vote at the upcoming Shareholder Meeting
    - More than 80% of AMC shares are held by a broad base of retail investors with an average holding of around 120 shares.
    Shares held by retail investors ~ 80% x 501,780,240 ~ 401,424,192
    - As of June 9th, 2021 from a top brokerage firm:
    Institutional Stock Ownership 12.6%
    Institutional Mutual Fund Ownership 10.4%
    Mutual Fund Ownership 3.2%
    Insider Ownership 6.5%
    Other 67.4%

    Total of institution ownership:
    12.6% + 10.4% + 3.2% = 26.2%
    Total of the rest excluding individual retail investors:
    26.2% + 6.5% = 32.7%
    Equivalent number of shares covered by record excluding shares from individual owners:
    32.7% x 501,780,240 = -164,082,138 shares
    Shares needed to cover the records:
    -63.72M = 501.78M - 401.42M - 164.08M
    - Synthetic shares:
    total number of synthetic shares: Z
    naked shorts: X
    naked call contracts: Y
    other naked shares: W
    Z = X + Y + W
    Short interest:
    Assuming 21% SI which is about 100.4M shares
    Minimum number of synthetic shares from public records:
    100.4M - 63.72M ~ 37M (assume all 63.72M shares were still amid transactions, this is very unlikely)
    Hidden number of synthetic shares:
    U: a lot discussions in forums estimate that this number is huge.
    Minimum number of synthetic shares
    37M + U
    - Bottom line:
    37M or MUCH MUCH MORE synthetic shares will have to be covered by real shares, most of these shares need to be from individual investors.

    Hope this post can be helpful to some of you to understand the current picture of $AMC. The ride is still going forwards while it may not be as easy as some of you thought. GLTL.

    I must say, this is setting up beautifully when we squeeze, Crypto is at rock bottom and on super discount, Bluechips will be on discount, dividend stocks will be on discount. Simply amazed at the short term and long term opportunities setting up before us when this squeeze plays out shortly.

    We absolutely can achieve generational wealth, for some its all AMC, for others it could be big profits in AMC and reinvesting in bluechips you never thought you could afford at super deflated prices. ETFS and so on.

    Do your DD, not only do you want to have an exit strategy in place, you also want to know quickly where to place some profits to ensure security over the long term.

    Once in a lifetime opportunity is coming our way. Have a solid plan that fills your needs for the short term and long term. That is how I look at it

    Hidden number of synthetic shares:
    U: a lot discussions in forums estimate that this number is huge, its estimation could be more than 1B. Here are the cases we may basically have for synthetic shares:

    * The worst case:
    all 63.72M shares were overlapped with shorted shares (very unlikely), then
    synthetic shares are about 37M = 100.4M - 63.72M.
    * The best case:
    none of 63.72M shares is overlapped with shorted shares (very likely or very closely), then
    synthetic shares are about 164M = 100.4M + 63.72M.
    * The super best case:
    large number of hidden synthetic shares (very likely), then
    synthetic shares are much more than 164M
    * Conclusion with high probability:
    Minimum number of synthetic shares
    164M (known) + multiples of 164M (estimated)
    [Bottom line]:
    164M or MUCH MUCH MORE synthetic shares will have to be covered by real shares, most of these shares need to be from individual investors.

    Hope this post can be helpful to some of you to understand the current picture of $AMC. Data shows us that the time is getting closer. The current price volatility is just a part of the process. The ride is still going forwards while it may not be as easy as some of you thought. We know we are on the way up and will go much further. GLTL.

    $AMC conversation
    Boy this definitely warrants a short share recall. Numbers aren't even close to adding up with retail owning all of 500 million shares that doesn't include institutions, , borrowed etf's, and insiders. Now if we take all the shorts my guess is we are way, way, waaaaaaaaay beyond the 102 million reported by ortex today. We could be well over 1.5 billion shares short we just don't know. We must, must must call in the short shares as a shareholder with thousands of shares I believe it is necessary beyond a shadow of a doubt so I know my shares are not being diluted by synthetic shares. Yea or Nay shareholders this is a huge catalyst. We shareholders demand all short shares be recalled due to the numbers that just do not add up. "Yea or Nay"

    🔊🔊👍👍👍AMC is set up to join the RUSSEL 1000 index this month meaning once it is in,
    index funds will have to buy it up and hold it for a year!! meaning this will make for a bigger squeeze!!! Scientific polling shows a likelihood of 2.5+ billion shares in circulation, or more than 5X the float. Even synthetic shares have to cover. Looking at the candle chart, there is an inverted hammer, a bullish sign. This is going to be big. Tomorrow Fox Business analyst Charles Payne will interview legal expert Wes Christian on naked short selling. I'm looking forward to this week! So much is happening and I'm excited for AMC.

    AMC is so strong that not even all of these short attacks can impact it. Short interest rose over 4% yesterday and is at 2.30% today.

    The best that the could do is bring us down to $51 and change.

    UTILIZATION of borrowed shares is back up as you can see.
    Current
    94.28

    7 days ago
    82.90

    92.2 million shares are on loan as of today which is up from 87.50 million just 7 days ago.

    002 goes into effect tomorrow. Shorts are in a real hole and there seems to be no way out.
    I believe there is a good chance we close in green today and then we may see some fireworks soon.

    With an automated intraday liquidity check staring at hedgies everyday, much of the manipulation used to attack stocks will now be impossible to pull off.

    I would at least expect the routine to change as hedgies may be able to play games after each liquidity is complete each day so we may have to look at new daily trends, but overall shorts are on a much shorter leash beginning tomorrow and it is showing today as AMC just will not fade regardless of the shorting going on today.

    Good Days Are Coming Soon. The Game Has Changed.

    1. The short interest of Volks Wagon when it sqoze to 1000 Euros ($1200 USD) was 10%. The short interest of $AMC is currently 13%.
    2. There are millions and millions of shorted shares covering tomorrow, most of which are between $58-$60. The higher we can get the price by tomorrows close, the more shares they will have to buy back, resulting in a bigger gamma squeeze. In my opinion, we're going to see a gamma squeeze tomorrow regardless, but the higher we can get the price, the bigger the gamma squeeze. If it's big enough, it will lead to a short squeeze.

    Stop watching the minute chart. Zoom out and look at daily chart. We are slowly rising even though the Hedge Funds are fighting us and trying to drop the price. There were 2.2 million shares shorted yesterday morning, resulting in the pre market drop. I'm sure they tried the same thing this morning.

    The question isn't if the squeeze will happen, it's if you're be in on it when it does!!

    hedge funds are trying their hardest to short ladder $AMC. Just hold your stock, buy more if you can afford to! Check out real time trade stats by googling: "Nasdaq AMC real time trades" and you'll see all the trade orders are 100 share volumes every millisecond. These are desperate hedge funds trading their stocks back and forth for a lower and lower price, driving the price down. The price drop means absolutely nothing AS LONG AS EVERYONE IS HOLDING, this will explode! https://www.nasdaq.com/market-activity/stocks/amc/latest-real-time-trades

    Read this carefully.. $AMC results are pushed to March 2 nd.. This is actually good news -
    1. We don’t break the momentum.
    2. Call options are going to get exercised in the money getting more shares bought and virtually nothing to short
    3. Earnings are for Q4 with no business which is already known to the world.
    4. Reason for pushing the results is to declare positive news like a buyout or completion of fund raising and grown in Covid free summer to come.

    We can very well be in 20s this Friday, in 100s after Monday and in 1000s after positive newsboys earnings.. life changing returns to gain and nothing to loose really.
    Hit like and keep on top so everyone understands. Let go to the moon 🌝 and beyond 🦍 🦍

    It’s not a coincidence the price came to 17.25 in th AH yesterday they got exposed big time!
    People asked.. couldn’t Hedgefunds just ladder their way out of all this? To 0? That’s a good question here’s my response!

    They will try, but they would have to trade hundreds millions of shares per day back and forth in increments of say 10 000 or 100 000. Which they could do in theory but in reality what happens is, as the price drops from the ladder people buy those share to hold which drive the price up, or balance it out. Plus the ladder attack is extremely RISKY, every time they trade back and forth they lose money. So if they traded 500 000 000 shares back in forth in chunks of 10 000, each time losing a penny per share per trade, plus paying the SEC fee.. That’s a lot to lose just to limit their current losses..!
    Then the price drops from 7 to 6, or if they did a big one say from 7 to 3 we would get so exited and buy them up and average down our price! And they do the ladder then close their short position, now you have us all buying them up and them all buying them up and the squeeze STILL happens. So... It’s entirely unlikely.

    The idea of the ladder in normal circumstances is to do it just enough that it triggers a ton other sells to sell. So take a different stock at 30 bucks. If they do a short ladder to 27 and that triggers a bunch of other people to sell down to 20, it worked. The reason it doesn’t work here is because we are here with the intention of HOLDING NO MATTER WHAT, with the intention of getting to the squeeze!

    WE WILL GET IT GUYS! Congratulations for buying and holding our time is comming, the more they wait, the more we WIN so be PATIENT & enjoy your weekend!

    $AMC is a buyMONDAY, if $AMC closes above $10 today all the calls expire in the money and market makers will be forced to buy shares back therefore on Monday the price would rocket starting the AMC short squeeze, copy and paste this so people know how long to buy and hold for!

    AMC short sellers lose $1.5 Billion after 134% rally! - June 2, 2021 by Tyger Fitzpatrick
    Net losses surpass $1.5 Billion for AMC short sellers
    The continued momentum in AMC stock has seen short sellers lose upwards of $1.5 Billion this week according to Ortex data. Interestingly, as of Friday last week across the board of AMC, GME and SPCE short sellers have accumulated a net loss of over $1.8 Billion. It seems AMC’s popularity amongst retail investors may be attributed to its recent performance gaining 219% this month alone. We will see if these losses will continue into this week as retail investors continue to push AMC stock higher.

    $AMC conversation
    If GME and AMC were to squeeze, think about the tax revenue the government will gain. Hedge funds continuously find ways to reduce their taxable income and shelter their money in accounts overseas. You cannot rely on the top 1% to sustain the market and pretend that there has not been an economic collapse with those families that do not fit in that category. It all looks ‘pretty’ on paper and in the news. Once the dust settles from the stimulus payments and we return to what could be defined as normal, poverty is going to increase and if you do not believe any of this, I have no problem taking your information and we could discuss within the next year.

    The wealth gap continues to widen and this will only continue.

    We continue to hear that a squeeze could collapse the market. This means that the wealthy will suffer the most. Most of the lower socioeconomic class are not investing in stocks. However, the government will experience a significant windfall in tax revenue. This redistribution of wealth will ultimately lead to more investments in the market, to support those stocks that have been crushed as a result of hedge funds short attacks. The squeeze will enable those investors who lacked access to medically necessary health care to now have the financial means to seek medical care for themselves and their families, new businesses would be opened as those with the desire but lacking in cash, would now have the ability to pursue their business interests, and families, that have been struggling for a long time in the 'land that claims to have opportunity for all' may now have the money to invest in homes, cars and education.

    THEY CAN CALL IT ANYTHING THEY WANT, BUT A COLLAPSE IS NOT WHAT I SEE.

    Like many of you, I've spent an inoridinate amount of time lately running scenarios and pondering ways to retain and bolster as much of my soon-to-be-realized gains on AMC for years to come. Not financial advice but like I'm sure many, I plan to park a good chunk of cash in dividend stocks and low-load funds that spin off yearly yields of 4 and 5 percent or greater. You can figure this at any investment or yield percentage, but if you are new to investing and thinking conservatively, consider this...

    $1,000,000 reinvested @ 4.5% = $45,000 annual dividend income. :)
