One of the struggling stocks caught up in the Reddit WallStreetBets saga, AMC shares experienced extreme volatility in early 2021 as retail investors looked to wage war on short-selling hedge funds. After a tough 2020 for the cinema company, AMC shares shot up over 500% in January amidst huge retail and media interest.
Since the stock market crash that started in February 2020, AMC Entertainment's share price has had significant positive movement.
Its last market close was $47.91, which is 84.43% up on its pre-crash value of $7.46 and 2,356.92% up on the lowest point reached during the March 2020 crash when the shares fell as low as $1.95.
If you had bought $1,000 worth of AMC Entertainment shares at the start of February 2020, those shares would have been worth $488.38 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $7,427.97.

In this case AMC Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.23% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AMC Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 230 shares are currently held short) or 0.2285% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AMC Entertainment shares, roughly 229 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AMC Entertainment.
