How to buy AMC Entertainment (AMC) shares in India

Learn how to easily invest in AMC Entertainment shares.

Shares of movie theater giant AMC Entertainment skyrocketed by more than 300% on Wednesday 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 seems to be driven by the same Reddit chat board that has helped drive GameStop to new highs this week and is pushing other heavily shorted stocks higher.

It's important to note that pushing stocks in this way leads to a lot of volatility, and it's impossible to tell if the stock will continue to rise or if it will suddenly drop sharply. Casual investors should steer clear or be prepared to keep a close watch on any positions they take.

Is AMC Entertainment under- or over-valued?

Valuing AMC Entertainment stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of AMC Entertainment's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

AMC Entertainment's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into AMC Entertainment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AMC Entertainment's EBITDA

AMC Entertainment share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AMC Entertainment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.7 up to $72.62. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMC.US volatility(beta: 1.5)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while AMC Entertainment's is 1.5. This would suggest that AMC Entertainment's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
