Why it's good to know what's behind asset growth – AMC shares

Today, we'll take a look at the current situation around the AMC company shares. These shares have recently risen by more than 50% in just a few trading days. *

This may sound like great news for investors, but it is important to note that the short float, which is the percentage of shares that are shorted, is high – 22%. This figure is extremely high and explains why there is a sharp short-term rise in the share price. Traders who short these shares are under pressure and have to close their positions, which drives the share price ever higher. However, the long-term and medium-term trend is downwards. [1]


Experts say that many investors are interested in these short-term rallies, but it is a very risky trading strategy. Share prices are consistently falling and fundamentally, you can see rapid revenue growth, but the company is still losing money. Analysts expect the company could be in the black as late as 2025. Wednesday's trading day (Jan. 18) brought the first warning signs that the recently started temporary rally could likely end here. [2]


It should be noted that these shares, due to their movements, are more suitable for traders who are willing to take a lot of risk. If an investor is looking for a stable and safe investment, this stock is not the right choice.
