What’s going on with AMC stock?
Shares of AMC were among the group of so-called meme stocks that skyrocketed in late January as individual investors piled into the stock, forcing hedge funds to scramble to cover their losses on short positions.
Shorting occurs when an investor borrows shares and sells them to others, a position taken when the investor believes the share price is going to decline. The short seller hopes to buy shares back at a lower price to settle the loan, pocketing the difference.
The move in AMC seemed to be driven by the same Reddit chat board that helped drive GameStop and some other heavily shorted stocks higher. All fell back in February but continue to trade heavily.
Since then AMC stock has been volatile, but with a big upswing starting in May. It’s the leading gainer among the group of so-called meme stocks, which are all up substantially so far this year.
