BERNARD ZAMBONIN AND DANIEL MARTINS, 21 July 2021

AMC stock (AMC) – Get Report bulls had a day of relief on Tuesday, as they saw the share price soar about 25% after weeks of painful declines. Following positive developments coming from CEO Adam Aron, momentum quickly shifted to the bullish side.

In a New Financial Dynamic, AMC CEO Ditches Plan to Side with Retail Investors

Tim Fries, 07 July 2021

Just a few months ago, AMC CEO Adam Aron leveraged retail traders to lead the company out of its ‘certain’ demise. After billions in raised capital, retail traders—self-proclaimed ‘apes’—have now seemingly signalled the limit to selling shares. The situation illustrates a major shift in finance, for perhaps the first time.

AMC Indebted in More Ways Than One
At the beginning of June, the Tokenist reported that 80% of AMC shares have come into the possession of retail investors. Of those, many share their extensive analysis in various subreddits. What they ultimately show is a reluctance to follow the more sophisticated fundamental analysis of companies, GameStop and AMC Entertainment in particular.

‘Meme’ mob behind Gamestop frenzy might still imperil soaring AMC

Charles Gasparino, 29 May 2021

Adam Aron says he wants to ­increase his Twitter following to include about 1,000 more professed small-investor shareholders of the company he runs, AMC Entertainment.

His goal is to better “understand this phenomenon that has changed who owns AMC.” But based on the type of AMC shareholder who hangs out on Twitter, he may be surprised — and more than a little ­embarrassed — by what he finds.

AMC, of course, is the world’s largest movie-chain business, synonymous for many years with blockbuster movies, sticky floors and terribly overpriced popcorn. Continue reading “Article: ‘Meme’ mob behind Gamestop frenzy might still imperil soaring AMC”
