    7:23 AM UTC

    AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (AMC) stock prices were up 9.72% shortly after the trading day commenced on July 15th 2021, signaling a recovery from a steep decline over the past few days. The stock currently sits at a price of USD$36.68.

    AMC Stock Price Fluctuations

    AMC Entertainment share prices were down significantly on Wednesday, July 14th, 2021, trading below half of its recent peak prices, putting retail investors to the test. July 15th, 2021 saw the stock recover from four straight days of losses, having closed at USD$33.43 before the resurgence. This represents a 54% decrease from its all-time high of USD$72.62, which it hit in early June of 2021. The stock fell to USD$33.25 in the past several weeks, its lowest point since June 1st, 2021.

    Meme Stock Phenomenon

    AMC has been at the focal point of the recent meme stock phenomenon that has been proliferating the markets as of late, marking the rise of the retail investor as bearish hedge funds bear the brunt of the movement. Its status as a meme stock has seen the stock sit at a price 1476% higher than its price from a year ago. Shareholders are concerned that the dip in performance would start a snowball effect as investors lose confidence and jump ship, fearful of further losses.

    Post-Pandemic Economy

    The decline in AMC equity value came in spite of a strong weekend at the box office, when Walt Disney Co. and Marvel’s collaborative superhero adventure movie, Black Widow, garnered USD$80 million in what has been the biggest opening weekend for a movie since the onset of the global coronavirus pandemic. Disney generated an additional USD$60 million globally from direct-to-consumer sales via its streaming service, which has become a major competitor for movie theaters.

    Expected Financials

    The company expects to report USD$3.16 in adjusted loss per share on revenue of USD$2.41 billion. As of the close of the trading day on July 13th, 2021, 16% of the companies shares were sold short, coming out to a total of 78 million shares. This is comparable to the 75 million shares sold short as of June 30th, 2021.

    Future Outlook for AMC

    Armed with the recent recovery of its stock value, AMC is poised to capitalize on the resurgence of the momentum that has carried the company through a stellar and fortuitous year. The company is keen to leverage its resources to drive in sustained and organic growth as the culmination of the global pandemic looms closer. Investors are hopeful for significant and sustained increases in shareholder value over the long term.
