Blitz Daily: Buyers Bet on AMC’s Fall to Continue as CEO Dumps Shares

by | Jan 18, 2022

In Tuesday’s Blitz Daily, we take a look at AMC as CEO Adam Aron continues to dump shares.

Aron parted recently with another $7 million in shares, having sold about $40 million in total since August 2021. 

The meme stock is also among the top weekly declining names in the Communication Services sector, falling about 8.4% on Tuesday to close at $18.84 a share.  

AMC has indeed been in a steady downward spiral since reaching $72 a share last June, having given up more than three-quarters of its value since.

And while it’s prone to a small bounce here and there, the stock continues falling despite attempts from the theater chain’s following to hold on to shares in hopes of taking advantage of another short squeeze. 

It seems institutional investors are confident that this junk stock’s slide isn’t over, coming in to buy the Feb. 21 $18 put en masse. 

And if AMC doesn’t hold your attention, not to worry… I have two other short-term options trades seeing a lot of activity Tuesday…

    • AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. (NYSE: AMC): Feb. 21 $18 PUT. 
    • Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. (NYSE: CLF): Jan. 28 $19.50 CALL.
    • AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T): Feb. 14 $27 CALL.  

Check out my short video and I’ll break down the day’s most unusual options order flow in about 4 minutes flat!

P.S. How does risking just $1 dollar for the opportunity to make $7 sound?

What about $1,000 to potentially make $7,000?

This is what we call the “profit factor” — the risk-to-reward ratio for an investment. 

A profit factor over 2.0 is good, while anything above 3.0 is considered outstanding. 

For every $1 risked, one strategy has seen $7 in return. 

And WealthPress Senior Strategist Roger Scott has perfected the strategy that’s scored a profit factor of 7.05 over the past 12 years of trading!
