Inflation Woes Crush Wall Street Numbers

"To the news that shocked a lot of Americans that they got home last night. They saw that Wall Street shots sold off. Big time. So I let me look at what the total percentage of on the doubt was 3.12% on the S&P, it was three and a half percent on the NASDAQ. It was 4.99%. The Amazon was down almost 5% itself. And I'll tell you what, it's probably going to go on for a while. Because the market knows the fed meets every couple of months and is going to raise interest rates a half point every time they meet until such time as inflation is broken because every single person that inflation is the enemy here. And don't worry, if you're unless you're a speculator and you're selling puts and calls. And that's just gambling. I'm not sure Robinhood kiddo, who thought, you know, I was going to make a fortune by trading GameStop and AMC. You expect this and you grim and bear it. If you're an investor, as opposed to a speculator or a trader, you just say, ah, well, you know, that was a good 5 years. And it'll be a year before we start to climb steadily again. Maybe two. But it will, the S&P, the NASDAQ, the Dow, big tech, strong commodities, like P and G, but they always come back. Boeing's got troubles only announced it's moving its corporate headquarters. Near me and the beltway and that is simply the capitulation of corporate America to the reality of the interest rates and tax rates of living in a blue city.

Dinesh Shares the Release Strategy for His New Film '2000 Mules'

"Want to begin this special episode by doing a brief report on the release strategy for my film 2000 mules, which comes out the first week of May. We're very excited about this movie. It's going to be, well, eye opening is putting it mildly. And the next couple of days are released, the poster, which will give you a feeling of what this film looks like. A trailer will follow shortly. But our premiere week is the first week of May. In fact, it's may 6th, which is sorry, may 2nd, which is a Monday through May 8th. And on May 2nd and May 4th, we're going to buy out. Some 250 theaters in America for the 7 p.m. showing. And what that means is that you'll be able to buy tickets right off the website, which is 2000 meals dot com. And go see the movie on either of those two nights, may 2nd, which is a Monday or may 4th, which is a Wednesday. And you can see it in the theater. Now, this will be in certain parts of the country. It won't cover the full country. In part because we've been able to make a deal with AMC and with Cinemark, but we don't have regal cinemas, which is under new management for complex reasons. They're not, they're not part of

Variable Pricing (MM #3998)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. One of the businesses that has struggled throughout the pandemic, of course, is the movie theaters. Nobody wanted to go sit in a room with people who had COVID, so movies, nobody was going. And it's starting to make a rebound, but now it's getting interesting, because two major chains have announced, they're going to start variable pricing. I guess in a way, variable pricing has always been at the movie theater. You have the daytime matinee prices, and then the regular prices. But they're going to get more variable than that, because now a Friday night after dinner is going to cost you a whole lot more on the opening night that's going to cost you on Saturday afternoon or let alone on Thursday at two, both AMC and Cinemark are going to be testing a variable pricing model for their movie tickets. And why it's really important right now and why everybody's freaking out is because AMC announced they're going to be doing it for The Batman movie that's coming out. I think it's this weekend. You've got a superhero movie. It's going to cost you two or three or $5 more to go see it any time of the day or night, no matter what, because they need to make up those profits. You've heard that story before haven't you?

"That's more like 50 50. Are you actively looking at ways to raise capital right now? Yes. Can you elaborate? No. You can't issue more shares. We can not and will not issue more shares in calendar year 2021. We've said that categorically. And by the way, we essentially have run out a common stock. Other than the 5 and a half million shares that are sitting un granted in the management incentive plans, you know, the annual stock grants that a 150 of our executives receive every year. I think we only have 46,000 common shares left that we could sell. Legally, without a shareholder vote. There are all sorts of other ideas that various people are floating to us. Reverse stock split, and then issuing new shares, set on the table. That's not on the table. And my understanding of the law is that if we did a reverse stock split, that would also contract the number of shares were allowed to issue. So it's not like if you did reverse stock split all of a sudden, you'd have hundreds of millions of shares you could sell. But given where our stock is trading at the moment, I don't think it reversed stock split would make sense under any circumstances. We're not trading at $2000 a share. We're trading in the mid 40s when at the time of this interview. My last question to you Adam is how does this movie end in your view? There are a lot of retail investors who have made a fortune off of AMC stock. There are also a lot of investors who keep plowing more money in I tweeted that I was talking to you today. What do you guys want to know out there on Twitter? One person said, I want you to tell Adam Aaron that 10% of every paycheck goes to AMC till the mother of all short squeezes. Are you worried about. Not the fairytale ending, but the opposite? Retail investors whose dreams don't really work out. Is there going to be a mother of all short squeezes? The only thing we all know about the future is that we're going to live to see that day come when the future actually arrives and only then will we know the end of the story. No one has a crystal ball. No one can say for certain what will happen. A day from now a month from now a year from now ten years from now, that's true about everything in life. Obviously, my hope would be for a fairytale ending. I'm an AMC shoulder, big one. Whether it happens or not, the only way we'll know is to live through it and get to that day and then we'll know. Having said that, I value every single dollar. That every investor puts an AMC. And it's my job. To make sure that this company grows into the valuation. That it has in the finance markets. My management team and I are literally at it 24/7. We live breathe and die AMC. And we will take those bold actions that we can think of to grow the company to let it prosper. I have it thrive. And to see our share price rise. And every management team of every company in the universe probably will say the same thing, many of them do it, not all, but most do it. A most good hearted people. But there's no certainty in life. And we'll only know as we get there, but we sure are going to try. So Adam, can you tell me about what it was like to go through these past 18 months? I mean, emotionally, what was it like for you? I'd have to say that it's been a roller coaster. You know, I feel like I've been training for this day my entire life. AMC is the 5th company that I've run. Since 1993. And I've taken on enormous turnaround challenges before and succeeded. And a friend of mine who's the CEO of another company. Called me right in the darkest and bleakest. You know, March and April of 2020, when the whole country was on lockdown. And he said, Adam, are we up for this? We were born three weeks apart. And I was 65 years of age and April of 2020. He said, are we up for this? You're 65, I'm 65. This is going to be two years of health. Three years of help, four years of hell, it's going to be an incredible slog to get through this. And I remember saying to him, not only are we up for it, what we do over the next two, three years. It's going to be the most important things we've ever done in our entire professional careers. He'd had a very successful career up to that point. I'd had a successful corrupt at that point. And yet I remember saying to him, everything that we've done doesn't matter, it was all preparation for this day. We've been somehow putting the seat to guide our companies through this horrible storm. And if we do, that's the legacy we're going to leave behind. And so sure, there have been darker days and happier days. And there have been some pretty stressful days when things got dicey. But you know this is what we were made for. And CEOs get.

"AMC entertainment has had a wild year 2021 saw the movie theater chain almost file for bankruptcy and its resurgence, thanks in part to a group of retail investors who call themselves apes. At the helm of it all with CEO Adam Aaron, CNBC spoke with Aaron for a documentary about the 8 movement. I'm Melissa Lee and this is a full conversation I had with Adam aron in September 2021. So Adam, you're in Kansas City right now? I am, where I'm filming this from an AMC theater in olaza Kansas. How long was that theater empty? And when did that theater reopen? You're bringing back bad memories. I remember on February 23 of 2020. Hearing word in my office that the city fathers in Milan want us to shut half a dozen theaters for ten days. That was the first time we heard any news that the coronavirus had sort of escaped the borders of China. It had been contained in China in January and early February. And I remember thinking at that time, well, it's only 6 theaters in Milan and we've got a thousand theaters globally and 15 countries. It would be very bad if it were to spread or to come to the United States where we're the largest movie theater chain in the U.S. with 600 theaters here, but it's only half a dozen theaters in Milan. Three weeks later, three weeks. We had to shut all 1000 of our theaters in all of the United States, all of Europe and all the Middle East. And our theaters stage shut from the middle of March of 2020, some started reopen in Europe in June, but not many here in the United States. We started reopening in about August of 2020. But there were very few movies to show because studios were delaying the releases of films. And so we were showing old movies from 20 and 30 years ago. And nobody came to our theaters. So whether the theaters were shot like the doors locked, which they were for about 6 months. Or effectively shut. Which has been more like a year and a half. Because we've really only started to see the return of big movies in the smallest of numbers starting in April and May of 2021 and really it won't be until October of 2021 that we'll see one blockbuster movie after another being released. That's going to start with, I think No Time to Die and James Bond September 30 in Europe, October 8th here in the United States. When all the screens went dark, Adam did you ever think that 17, 18 months from that point, you'd be sitting here, you will have announced a $25 million ad campaign. You will have raised billions of dollars in capital. And your stock would be at 40 something dollars a share. So if you had asked me in February or March of 2020, I couldn't have imagined any of this. Any of this. I remember when we closed our theaters in mid March, various experts were saying we would be shut for four to 6 weeks. And I remember thinking, I'm a man who likes to under promise and over deliver. So I said, well, look, maybe they're wrong. So let's put out a press release saying we'll open up in 6 to 12 weeks. That'll give us a cushion. That's double what they're all saying. Yeah, 12 weeks. Our theaters were closed for 6 months in the United States. We were starved of new movie releases for well over a year. You could some could argue, we just came off a great Labor Day weekend with Shang-Chi, which smash Labor Day records. But really big movies don't start until the fall, we had no idea that we were almost going to run out of cash, 5 different times in 2020, a big multinational company, $5 billion plus in revenue, very stable industry, mature industry. It wasn't growing all that fast, but certainly wasn't shrinking. All of a sudden, we had no revenue at all, just overnight, gone. And that we would work our way through that without having to file for bankruptcy. And then to lead into the embrace of AMC by retail individual investors who have so enthusiastically come to the rescue of AMC in 2021. The whole thing is an amazing story. How did you become a meme stock? And did you even know what a meme was when you became a meme stock? There are a lot of different reasons. We certainly never expected it, right? We've been complaining for all the way back to the summer of 2017. That there was a lot of short activity in our stock, all because people were predicting the demise of movie theaters and we've been making the case since 2017 that people are way too quick in conventional wisdom to write off. Movie theaters, movie theaters are very resilient category. We've been around for over a century of a popular part of cultural fabric, the world over. Movie theaters have survived everything that's been thrown at us. It sounds like a long time ago, but radio was supposed to put movie theaters out of business and TV was going to put us out of business, and VCRs were going to put us out of business. And DVDs were going to put us out of business, and now streaming is supposed to be putting us out of business. And guess what? People love going to movie theaters. I think the rally that surrounded AMC that started in January 2021, I think part of that started because people noticed that there was a heavy concentration of short selling in AMC stock. But I also think that major ingredients were average every day of American investors and lots of average everyday retail investors overseas, love going to theaters. And they didn't want to see a proud 101 year old American company like AMC disappear. So many people have great memories. Of having watched a big movie at some point in their lives, with someone they cared for, whether as a parent or a sibling or someone they were dating or their kids, and they didn't want to see AMC disappear. And they've been reading in the press that people were predicting that the COVID pandemic was going to drive us into bankruptcy. And they just didn't want that to happen. And so they surrounded our company. And as you as 2021 is played out, we're a popular company on the tips of everyone's tongues. Let's go back to the end of 2020. AMC was sort of teetering on bankruptcy. And then you had a $917 million capital raise. You came out to CNBC, didn't interview two days later, hashtag save AMC started to trend. Did you know that was happening? Did you realize what was going on at that.

"All right, this week, Tim, you had the conversation and you were speaking with Kim Kelleher, who is currently the president of commercial revenue and partnerships at AMC networks. And I'm curious if you got into kind of their upfront strategy from this past year and how it might have been differently focused from previous years. The 2021 upfront was kind of building on the 2020 up front, which was kind of like this inflection point, but it was like 2021 was like inflection point the SQL. Because this year there was definitely more of a flattening between linear TV and streaming, linear still gets the bulk of the budgets, but there's only so much inventory. And so network groups like AMC networks have really been building up their streaming inventory, AMC networks has rolled out a lot of these 24 7 streaming channels on the different free ad supported streaming services. And we also talk about flexibility and just how flexibility is kind of pervading into the quarterly upfront deals and is kind of leaving some question marks in terms of like the quarter to quarter pacing of the upfront deals. Did she get into targeting ads at all, especially in the linear space, just because that seems like a hot topic recently if figuring out how to get very narrow audiences in that area. Yeah, AMC networks recently announced they have been doing what's called programmatic addressable for linear. So basically, being able to buy traditional TV ads, programmatically. So using, I think they worked with the trade desk and magnite for this. And then being able to target the ads at the household level..

"I also like going to the movies. I've had I've had periods in my life where I get anxiety from feeling trapped inside theaters. So like that's like a thing. I don't like there were times in my life where it was like, I don't like being in movie theaters because I feel like I feel like I have to get out. But I've kind of been working to get over that. And, you know, post post pandemic when things have reopened and I've been Natalie and I've been going to more movies and, you know, as safely as possible, and having a great time, and I want AMC to succeed. I don't want it to succeed for him. So why would I go lower than four forks putting it in the golden plate club? Congratulations to AMC. Wow. Another golden plate club entrant or plate club entrant period here in dog dog fest 2021. Wow. And by the way, I think I just took a kernel out of my tooth from last night. But let me just say this that I was very nervous before the movie started because it was kind of like a chatty, excited crowd, and then some guy playing like a song after each trailer, which was annoying. On his phone. Yeah, yeah. And then guess what? Quiet as a church mouse in there afterwards. There was no noise throughout the entire theater, which is which is my fear with AMC. I feel like with kind of the more popular big theaters, you're going to get some noise. It can happen at any theater, but nothing last night, which was a huge plus. So wow. Completely silent crowd. Nice prep for when we do our live show in New York in a couple of weeks. We'll take a break. We'll be back with more doughboys. What.

"Movie from the others? Come back to the movies. It won't be scary this time, I promise. Yeah, right. And then Chris Rock when he was amoeba. Osmosis Jones. That was another on that planet. Oh yeah. I remember I remember weird ones, but I really enjoyed my time there. There was and there's been I'll say this. If people are sneaking in, if they're listening to Nicole Kidman, there's still a lot of people waiting in line. So every time I've been there, there's been kind of a long line for concessions. And this has this has the old school setup. So there's a line and then there's an a list line and wags. You and I have both talked about joining a list. I think I'm going to do it. I'm not a member yet, but I think I'm going to do it. But the a list line gets you, it's shorter line, so if you're in the a list line, you're a member, they'll take you at the front of the line. It seems kind of if I was, I mean, I'm going to take advantage of it, but it feels like you would feel like an asshole, like basically cutting people in line, but that's one of the perks of it. But the AMC at universal citywides has an open floor concert. Have you been to it since it's been redone? If it's been redone since lockdown, I have not been. No. It's basically just an open concept where you go and you take your popcorn and then you go to a register and then cash out. Yes, I think I maybe have I maybe have been to that one. Yes. Which one are you talking about? Which theater was that? The universal universal city. Yeah, I've been in that one a couple of times recently, yes. That is different. But I will say this way better with the lines, but you have to go up and order a hot dog still if you go there. But there's more of a kitchen. You know, it is kind of it's convenient in some ways. They just keep on putting out bags of popcorn and people take them and go pay. And then you get like an empty drink at the front if you want to drink too. But to me, it seems like those lines it's way more expedited. It feels like it feels like it moves fast. I agree. I agree. Because there was nobody at the theater. I was at, and there was a line because there was one person behind the counter. And it was total log jam. Yeah. That's more of the issue with AMC. So I waited a bit of a line before the movie. And I was already late wags and spoon man fashion. Yeah. We actually, I missed the very start of venom two, because we were also late. Yeah, so yeah, so but I will say that you missed Kidman. I did, I missed Kidman. Because she's in the same venom too? Yeah. Look for me in the beginning of two. At least. So yeah, so we were running like it was one of those things where the screening was like, ah, the screenings basically now. And this is like a theater is like a ten minute drive. But there are gonna be 25 minutes of previews. I think we can just barely make it. And then there was a little bit of construction, but the moment. Slow. Natalie went in and got her seat. She got to see the last trailer and see the start of the movie. But I was buying concessions, so it took me a little bit of an extra I came in just a little bit late. Wow. But I will, yeah, and I went to kind of like an old school feeling AMC. It was like, you know, honestly, Mitch the AMC dine in that we reviewed with back in the day with our friends. Kevin and Jamie was right across from the street from this theater. So it's like this old theater existed. That's just like an old school multi plaques. And then the dine in, which is like this much nicer upscale one is like right across the street from it. So we went to the old school one. I remember when we were doing that, that was the weird confusion that there were two right next to each other. Yes. So I was gonna go to the 5 15 show. And then I was like, oh, I'm never gonna make it in time so I got on the treadmill. I did some walking legs. And then I said, I'm gonna go to the 6 15. So I finished my walks. I hadn't done some ads for doughboy, so I did the doughboys ads, I missed the 6 15. And then so I had to go to the 7 45 show. And then I took a shower and I was just late to the 7 45 show. I made it. I saw previews for I mean this sums real, but I was doing work. The whole time she was doing stuff. But I got to the 7 45 show. I still saw previews basically. I saw everything. But I went up, first of all, before I even went in there, I was afraid because they used to be hot dogs back in the day, but they kind of closed off the back, so I was like, is there still a kitchen there? So I got up to the ticket taker and I asked him, I said, I said, do you got hot dogs in there? And he was like, yeah, and I was like, I know that was a weird question for like a big guy to come up to you, the ticket taker and ask you if there's hot dogs anyway. Yeah. Take all the hot dogs you want. Stop me live. Terrified. So I was happy to hear that. I went in, waited in that line, ordered myself a hot dog, it was the last one on the rollers..

No, Democrats and Republicans Are Not Headed for a US Debt Limit Showdown

"Wanted to get to the key issue of the day. Mitch mcconnell has said to thanos chuck schumer. You might wanna showdown. We're not having a showdown but every single paper from legacy media like the new york times. Democrats pair spending bills with raising debt. Ceiling pressuring gop washington post democrats unveil new plan to fund government suspended ceiling as major showdown with. Gop looms. there is no showdown byron. Am i correct. Correct on the on the basic issue of raising the debt ceiling Historically that's been something the majority party has to do as the debt cliff approaches. There's a lot of wining and talking and in the end that's what the majority party has to do. And i believe You know you could raise the debt ceiling in a one. Page bill Democrats have what they call a majority fifty votes in the senate plus vice president And they can pass it. And so that's something like that is going to happen unless they make some sort of deal that mcconnell finds attractive brilliant thing about that is a debt ceiling. Bill requires sixty votes unless you attach to reconciliation in which case it only requires fifty. They have reconciliation coming to conference. They can agree to do that and they can get it done in two weeks. There need not be any crisis. Mitch is making them do their reconciliation bargaining among themselves now by refusing to go the wimpy route for a hamburger. Today i will gladly by tuesday there. He's just saying no. You bought it. You broke it. You bought it. It's yours and the media is outrage because they wanna postpone the showdown between chuck schumer.

TV's White Guys Are in Crisis

"So we're going to try this episode to critique the position of white guys on television without sort of repeating the problem that white guys on television currently present which is that. they're not the point and yet they're the point. I want to dive in by talking about this great piece. Catherine wrote for vulture about the crisis. That white guys are going through genetic. Maybe you'd think it's not really an emergency. So bad so white guys are still of course all over television as they are in the world but they are on television in a different way in certainly in some new shows and they have been in the past. And you can see that in shows like peacock sitcom rutherford falls. Amc's genre bending. Kevin can himself and the two big hits of summer. Hbo's hotel drama. The white lotus featuring a bevy of white guys who were going to get into and of course ted lasso. Basically the white guy who used to be. Tv's default protagonists are not but who are they. What does it say about them. And us catherine have i. We're gonna keep talking now. I would just shamelessly coach from your piece. So why don't you tell us. It's central argument. Yeah for what i think the framing of it as a crisis it has been really interesting to see responses from two different sides of sort of people who look at the headline that are immediately put off by it.

And good luck getting that high tech toy this year. The chip crisis continues to cripple the industry. So with just one hundred fourteen days to go. Are we setting up for nightmare before christmas guy down. Me ball humbug. To that now. I mean nothing keeps the people from shopping for christmas. Quite frankly and i think this year is going to be another record year. You can talk about supply chain disruptions. What have you people will find a way nats. Just a question of what retailer is best suited. Obviously we've talked about williams-sonoma. I'm sure a lot of people wanna get that crock pot for their loved one. But that's a bit of a double top concerns me walmart. You can make a great case on valuation another situation where maybe we topped out a bit here. The one that sticks out like a sore thumb. Not that i suggest doing your christmas shopping there because i know you won't but costco jeffries just raised their price target.

What's Next for TV's White Guys?

"We're going to try this episode to critique the position of white guys on television without sort of repeating the problem that white guys on television currently present. they're not the point and yet they're the point. I want to dive in by talking about this great piece that catherine wrote for vulture about the crisis. That white guys are going through. Maybe it's not really an emergency so bad so white guys are still of course all over television as they are in the world but they are on television in a different way in certainly in some new shows and they have been in the past. And you can see that in shows like peacocks. Sitcom rutherford falls. Amc's genre bending. Kevin can f- himself and the two big hits of summer. Hbo is hotel drama. The white lotus featuring a bevy of white guys. we're going to get into. And of course ted lasso. Basically the white guys who used to be. Tv's default protagonists are not but who are they. And what does it say about them. And us catherine have. We're going to keep talking now. I would just shamelessly poach from your piece. So why don't you tell us central argument. Yeah for what i think the framing of it as a crisis it has been really interesting to see responses from two different sides of sort of people who look at the headlines immediately. Put off by people who are like. I don't wanna hear about a crisis for white guys like i'm done. We talked about them too much. And then of course from the other like terrifying side of white guys being you know extremely mad at me and sending me all kinds of emails but it was in response to something. I started noticing as a pattern in new television shows that were coming out this summer and it was something i saw in. Rutherford falls and kevin can f- himself in particular. I had this sudden realization that they're like the same show at the core and the idea is that there used to be this white guy who was the obvious default protagonist of the show. He would be like the dad figure he'd be the beloved buffoon he might be like the chosen one character or the love interest or this charismatic. Anti hero figure and now that we have begun to look at the stories that we put on television and say like what if we had other kinds of people in the world who are the main characters that white guy figure no longer works as the

The Three Most Important Charts in the Market

"We kick off a new trading month with the three most important charts in the market at least according to our traders. Let's get right to you. Then i up the iwan russell. Two thousand small-cap etf guy this is your chart. Tell us what it tells you about. The markets well. I'm not one to speak in platitudes. But i love these games at the beginning of months and i happen to think that the i. Wm is as an important to chart was. We're gonna look at you. Go back to last. September twenty twenty. The russell was explode into the upside is a matter of fact. I think it went from one. Forty five to two fifteen pretty much in a straight line but since january it's been going sideways in a very well defined range in a two ten to two thirty five and here. We are now the great louise yomata who is as you know. She's on the parthenon of great technicians. Out there she will say the longer in space the higher and outer space. And i think a lot bowls will believe that as well. It feels like it wants a breakouts. The upside i bring it up because as you know the most economically sensitive names believe it or not. Amc the top holding with half of one percent. Healthcare big component financials industrials and tech. But this has not validated the move and the snp five hundred the russell to break out sort of above two thirty five. Then it's off to the races and the s&p five hundred. That's why i find it to be the most important chart or one of the three. Considering that this is a quote that we often refer to on the show guy given by a person who we regard so highly as to put her on the pantheon of technical now analysts. It's amazing that you've got the quote wrong the longer the base the higher in space the long does exactly what i said higher in space. That's what you said. The thought is their thought. Is there what do you think about the wm. As as a chart that that could portend what what will happen in the markets so yeah. I like guys premise. And obviously i'd been in value. And i probably a little too deep in value to be honest because it did have a nice run.

It's not a report or investment advice. Natta offer or sale of security. That's next digestible business. Financial llc members favor less sipc our first story. Amc just rose five percent after its earnings report with the stock rose as amc said bill accept bitcoin. Amc home of the eight. Minute reminded a turn off your cell phone. Excuse me i'm just thanks. Thanks thank you sorry stepped on your you know. They got those dancing junior. Men's that are like telling you to go to the concession stand species guy smackers before the pandemic. amc one of the biggest movie theater chains in the world. You twelve straight quarters of at least one billion revenue that was before the pandemic jack since the pandemic our things like it has lost over a half a billion dollars each court so last quarter. They didn't lose half a billion dollars. They just lost some money. Yes as the economy started reopening from april to june revenue for amc increase to four hundred forty. Five million. Okay so that's four hundred forty five million dollars of like box office tickets. In less than half of their pre pandemic norms boom is two thousand two hundred and fifteen percent higher then ticket sales in the very middle of the pandemic last year niggers last spring. They made eighteen million because the theaters were closed. But honestly it doesn't even really matter right now. Amc is richer than ever thanks to their loyal retail investor fanatics. Knackers get this in june. Amc stock was hanging up over at sixty three dollars that is up. Three thousand percent reeler. Amc stock was just six months earlier. Three thousand percent overtake. We're doing a little rounding there. You gotta do that. Every now. And then management took advantage of that by printing new stock selling it at a high price and raising one and a quarter billion dollars for the company. They literally recognized our stock super high. Let sell new stock. We get to keep all that money. It's all fresh cash. That is why. Amc has double the amount of cash. Right now yeah. As at any point in their one hundred one year his islamic series where they've got those memories got the mountains of gold and the coins and stuff and he scheme down. I slides down them at one point. I have no idea what you're talking. The disney classic at the disney class amc's richness. Right now is thanks to the fervent love of every day. Amc shareholder so.

Amc's management team has been treated retail investors like vip's in june we covered when they launched amc connect which club for shareholders. That includes perks. Such as a free bucket of i mean it's better than what you get with. Most amex placards these so jack. What's the takeaway for our buddies over damn see amc's real success depends on storytelling about itself. Knackers anc stock used to be determined by wall street. Now it's determined by its retail investor ownership so. The ceo did what he needs to do to survive that he told the story yesterday. That sounds excite. Here's what he said in the earnings. Amc ceo said there will be a happy ending to this hollywood story. Amc ceo predicted that a movie would be made about amc surviving and recovering fees and like amelio ducks d. To do in a locker room speech. Jack amelia amc will say that the companies innovating by letting your experience musical concerts in the movie theater. Get this knackers chance. The rapper whose to the secret concert back in two thousand seventeen. You can watch that concert starting friday at amc theaters and in the perfect storytelling plot. Twist this ceo just said the amc would begin accepting bitcoin now for movie tickets by the end of this year. So you could go to see batman but you pay for it in bitcoin now. Amc ceo won't say as much about the business losing a whole bunch of more money. Yeah three hundred forty four million last quarter and he won't say as much about the delta variant being a huge threat to their recovery. Emc stock isn't about the past or present losses it's about the ceo's storytelling about the future for our second story. Targeted walmart are gonna pay one hundred percent of your tuition you to be. You don't know until you get a master's oh congratulations. The wage wars smackers have become the battle of the benefit. This is like straight out of oprah season. Three walmart made huge news last month. They announced for their one point. Five million a lot of part-time and full-time associates at both walmart. And sam's club. Going your honor all free college tuition that is basically like every university of blank state added together multiplied by by six one point. Five million people now walmart paying for college. Tuition has been around for three years. But you had to pay a dollar a day and it went into a program and then warmer would pay. They eliminated the dollar. Yeah so now. You can be a fulltime student during the day your degree joy and a walmart worker nights and weekends tuition and books. One hundred percent paid by papa. Sammy walton. now there is some fine print. yeah there is. It's only works if you enroll in seven universities or three other learning institutions. You do then you don't have to pay for that.

Amd and it was halted a few times for volatility today as far as trading volume it surpassed its ipo day with more than eight billion dollars worth of shares changing hands. The stock is still seen pretty thin trading so that thanks to some of those lock-up periods for certain investors mean fewer shares are available to trade. I'm told that brought a lot. More volatility today retail interest is another big factor. It is the most mentioned stock on read it. At least it was today. According to data from think with more mentions than both game stop and amc and momentum train is well. That is a factor. There's likely hedge funds looking to jump in on some of this action. Short interest though does not appear to be a factor at tends to be pretty expensive too short stock like robin hood so soon after nine peo- that is thanks to the lack of shares out there to borrow. I talked to s. three partners about this earlier. They say there is some short interest but it was really the long side. Driving robin hoods prices today.

We can do that if we're not art this tool. Then you're tying our hands behind our back you'll make it just that much harder for us to land some of these attractive opportunities benefit at american making the case directly to shareholders and this is a new phenomena effectively telling shareholders. You need to give the right or the access to be able to sell more shares. That would happen in twenty twenty two. This goes back to an explanation. Explains what we talked about on the program yesterday about that and hold investor connect idea. Which is he needs these folks to give him authorisation. They're out of shares. The shares can be sold to the public as of now so they can't raise additional money that they are asking for five hundred million additional shed digital shares. The interestingly you remember two days ago. I'd said one of the reasons they were doing this. Because they were out of shares one of those shares are i thought they were out of shares and i think the market but they were shares. Was these these shares that they ended up selling that we're supposed to be used for their incentive plan for employees that had been put to the side so they've actively said you know what we're not gonna do that and he made actually a great case on youtube to the shareholders. Saying we're in it with you. We're not taking anything here. But now you gotta give us more access and trae shares that we're going to go for the employees be replenished by the five hundred million unclear. I don't think that that's what they would necessarily be used for. He's that was not the argument that he was making. We'll see but and they wouldn't be paid in twenty twenty one so there is no incentive program into one of course the incentive programs to keep is to keep the company a alive and be the share price higher because all of these What was it beneficiaries reacting positively to the previous stocks because it was giving him some money and it was up in the low seventies. They announced this. And you know. We're not really sure when i mean it could be From time to time we may sell that knocked it down at all the way down fifty and they they hit that bid quick as they could even get fifty fifty is not six seventy two if they were in the market buying a selling at about nine thirty ten yesterday. That was the plan which was from the time. And you know when we were talking about like oh knows when they you know maybe they get some good prices. Here good was done. Did that was smart to be offered. It was it was and they get to retire billion dollars of debt and everything else. But it's just funny the way and you know that the pushback that we get from. I had to look up. I thought it was dirty. But it's not it's just. We thought on crypto we do on. Amc we do fudd on tests we got more fud which is if you don't know your uncertainty uncertainty and doubt is that how do we instill it both ways on the table that like and the people that don't like it we're we're we're just fudd mass difference from this and maybe two thousand back then. Everybody accused of being cheerleaders. We'll get we'll get into armies depends depends on whether these people with crypto that or the stock. They got probably half of them. Don't even have around lot in this. And yet they are ready to tweet nonstop force. Well we're gonna have an opportunity to talk to the leader of the apes trae collins. Who did that interview. He has half a million people. You know watching youtube videos where he sits there and he goes through the technicals of why he thinks. The stock is going up or down or the sort of short squeeze dynamic. I mean he and this is you know we talk about. The retail investor trae collins is representing the retail investor. We've got a lot of questions for him. Obviously this stock but also the larger happening to might not have been a great precedent for all these people to think it can be done again again again because you remember the professional investors. Everyone's head hurts worthless. There's no reason to be going into this This equity of bankrupt company all those people that did that. Now that it's coming out are going to do very very well. And they think this is gonna repeat itself again. And maybe there isn't here. Value hurts have inherent value. Maybe i spoke to trae last night at length and commissioning to hear what he has to say but i don't i think the interesting thing that i learned is in a way this is. I don't think this is a fundamental investor philosophy. I think if the traitor philosophy. And i think you'll hear that i don't know if that'll change the dynamic of how you think that. That's why we're called cutters constantly because we kept making that case all day yesterday about gambling versus the and. Nobody's but i think this is a and sit around and say this makes no sense on analysis. This is completely insane and for the trade wise. No no but i'm saying why be long. What's the rationale. all i'm saying is that i don't think that they thought happened before. So they think it can happen again right. I mean the same a game. What's the rationale there. I guess you can see it. But what is it for amc. Exactly i. but i'm saying is. I don't think that there is irrational. Then it's the greater fool. No but that's what i'm saying. It's a traitor traitor technologists that and so think. There's an element of that people you got to be. Nimble i guess very very nimble who who who's left holding the who presumably would be left. That's the i don't know how many billions of dollars of questions that will be worth thinking about. You know we were talking about. How options has that commodities represent some speculation.

"It really seems like it's not just the fast food restaurants that are angling for this market. Well i i would probably argue that. Chicken sandwiches have been it for the last several years right. I mean and you're right. I mean you know. Every major quick service restaurant is now competing you know in this chicken sandwich war. You know i mean. I think they've all looked at the growth. And i just referenced chick flay that continues to do well right. And so you know all of these chicken players You know kfc's come out with them. You know and all all of these players that that are chicken that make sense. But then. Mcdonald's burger chang and now chili's just came out with one right and so you know what makes it. Interesting is because a lot of these chains are now competing on delivery to some degree whether you're a fast food restaurant or a sit down restaurant doesn't matter as much anymore because the consumers are just ordering them on their phone right so you can order chilies chicken sandwich just as easily as you can order a chick-fil-a sandwich and both of them are going to be brought to your door in. Both of them are delicious and so chicken sandwiches have really become sort of ground zero in terms of the restaurant battle right now and and almost to the extent that it's comical that means like every week somebody else is rolling out new chicken sandwich and and listen by the way. I think. They're all pretty good right. I mean have them you know. Personal tastes may vary but you know at some point. You gotta say that. There's a sort of a you know. A declining utility offering these chicken sandwiches. Now that said chicken restaurants last year. Right the kfc's and shake fillets grew ten. Percents right and so you know. In a pandemic chicken category not chicken as a product but the chicken. You know chicken style. Restaurants are restaurants that we classify as chicken. Restaurants grew ten percent last year fast. Anything and so consumers love their chicken. They continued to to vote with their their wallets. And you know it doesn't seem like there's any end in sight in terms of consumers Insatiable demand for ticket over the past decade investors have seen a lot of publicly traded restaurants being taken private panerabread dunkin among them. Later this month crispy cream is going to get. Its second act as a public company. Should we expect a more successful second act for crispy cream and should investors expect. More restaurants being spun out into the public markets over the next decade. You know it's a really good question and you know when when you look at crispy cream german ownership. I mean they've really righted the ship. I mean it was taken private because they had over expand overextended themselves over expanded and you know and when it was acquired it was you know it was. It was struggling right and so they've turned around. I think when you look at the investments you know. There are a lot of what we call these facts. These special purpose acquisition companies that are going after restaurants a lot of them are publicly traded. Or they're publicly traded shell companies that are acquiring restaurants. And so i do think. Perhaps it's not an ipo in the traditional sense. But there's going to be a lot more publicly traded entities that invest in restaurants and give investors more of an opportunity. Now i think you know but you know and i don't offer investment advice on like you guys and so i you know i don't want to necessarily tell you to invest in anything but listen. We're at a point right now where the next several years for for restaurant girls is probably going to be pretty explosive. Coming off of the worst year probably ever in terms of the restaurant industry now individual company performance is going to vary. But i think that had a lot of people are looking at this as a as a buying opportunity because there's distressed assets. There's a lot of Chains or restaurant companies more generally carrying a lot of debts and so you know the extent to which investors either of private equity again. These these Spags or you know other investors service. There's there's going to be a lot more activity happening over the next couple of years and and you know probably some. Ipo's as a result of that last thing and then you go. We talked recently on the show about the partnership between pringles and wendy's for the limited edition chips made the taste like wendy's spicy chicken sandwich. These things come across your radar all the time. Have you seen anything recently that you're particularly either excited about or by well. I think chris part of the challenge in the answering that is we work with a lot of these companies right and so i. I've seen a lot of things that horrify me. I don't necessarily wanna wanna talk about it. But sometimes they work right. That's the thing like they're absolutely these things that you or i or anyone else could look at and think that doesn't look like it would taste very good. And they're a hit for some of these chains and we see these mash ups happening. And so i think a lot of it is around. You know and you know what your there's two different ways you know restaurants kind of investing in that right there working with a cg company to get something under the grocery shelves but then there's also a lot of menu innovation where they're just doing crazy flavors or doing things and you know yum brands and you know some of these Qsr's are notorious for that and you know really what they're doing is trying to create buzz and trying to create something especially for the younger consumer. Right i mean. They're looking to break through social media. Breakthrough sort of the word of mouth at a lot of younger consumers. You know how they communicate now and on the different social media channels and really create. Something that is that is buds worthy. And so it's almost to the point. Where the flavors are beside the point right. It's it's having something that is crazy unique. Knew that people are going to talk about and you know sort of if it works great but the primary benefit of all of that is just to get people talking about you and your brand and i think that's that's probably what's driving a lot of that you wanna know more about the restaurant industry. There is no one better to be following on twitter or reading his stuff. David hankins thanks so much for your time. Thanks chris i appreciate it up next emily flipping and jason moser return with a couple of stocks on their radar. Stare at here. You're listening.

"From the side effects so a few days ago by announce that four of the major childcare providers in the us are to provide free care to help parents and caregivers get vaccinated and of course private businesses are answering what they're doing to. Cbs is doing a sweepstakes where people could win. Super bowl tickets. United airlines apparently has something similar that earns vaccine people the chance for a year free flights. Yeah so if you want to go i guess. State to state since the world is not exactly open. Great wonderful value explore every route imaginable. Good for you. Kroger is going to give one million dollars. So you've in person this month and anheuser busch is promising free beer on july fourth. It's the country. Hits the seventy percent goal terms and conditions apply for all of these things etcetera etcetera. But you know that but yeah the white house and others are really trying to go all in this month. Because the daily average of doses given out has dropped by like sixty seven percent since the peak in mid april and where there isn't vaccine coverage there of course is a chance for more spread. Yeah and then. We got news of what america's plan is to help get the rest of the world vaccinated. And how will finally be sharing doses with other countries. So what's the word. Yes so we got our first glimpse of this Yesterday by the end of this month. America's planning on sharing eighty million doses. The white house broke down. Where the first batch about twenty five million shots are going to be shared about. Nineteen million doses are going to go to kovacs. Which is this international program by the world health organization to get vaccines to poorer nations. Those doses will be dedicated specifically for south and southeast asia. Latin america and the caribbean and africa than the rest of what we're sharing it. I will head to places experiencing surges or where the need is more immediate that includes india iraq. The west bank in gaza and more and the clock is ticking here. The who recently raised the alarm about rising test positi in fourteen african countries with concern about it conceivable wave that could spread across the continent and the us embassy in afghanistan. Recently recommended that us citizens actually leave due to worsening conditions. They're much much more. We will get into soon but onto something. That couldn't be any more different. This week has been another crazy ride on the stock train. Can you help break down. What has been going on. Yes india gideon so for those who are unaware of the concept of stunks They are simply the mean. Stocks digital currency tidal wave sweeping the nation and in regards to the ladder the entire world. So we reported on. Amc game stop and nokia earlier in the year. When shortsellers collective saw this big opportunity to make quick cash but since then a lot has happened. The app robin hood froze people's assets. Read it made some communication channels disappeared. Those coins moon word. Trajectory was derailed after elon musk hosted. Snl and bitcoins value dropped by twenty thousand dollars plus the latest news though surrounding these volatile stocks and currencies is that amc made good on that huge influx of cash which is allegedly a billion dollars worth between december and january and earlier. This week rallied to its highest share price yet but then yesterday it closed down twenty percent but also hey still up in general okay some major swings up and down here. So what actually accounts for these latest gains. Just more memes. We are talking about real money gideon so at the beginning of the week. Amc made gains by selling stock to a hedge fund then by selling more shares on the markets. Yesterday the company said that it raised over five hundred eighty seven million dollars in additional equity capital. But it's not exactly like amc's ashamed of the clout in fact they're leaning into it. They've started a new platform for investors to get free popcorn or advance screenings of films which might not seem like much. But if you've left your house lately it seems like everything is way too expensive also smart way to get people to still buy tickets and support your company the old fashioned way by sitting in a theater getting the feet sticky and watching pretty people kiss despite all the high highs and lows the takeaway. Is that this wall street. Strategy has allowed. Amc theater chain on the brink of being closed forever to bounce back. Justice things are reopening nationwide. Yes oh is it safe to invest in these stocks. Are we all too late to benefit this point asking for not anyone in particular well. This is not financial advice but amc themselves put out a statement yesterday. Basically warning prospective investors of the volatile nature of the stock which also almost certainly contributed to the dip at the end of the day yesterday in the statement they said quote our current market prices reflect market and trading dynamics unrelated to our underlying business or macro industry fundamentals. And we do not know how long these dynamics will last each israel and wall street analysts are also not convinced that this kind of thing has staying power but for younger generations with no accrued wealth because of stagnant wages investing one hundred dollars. Here there seems worth the risk at least in the short term those young brave cap invest here and there and the fun uncharted wild west of memes stocks. The odds be ever in your favor. We'll keep you posted on how this all shakes out as theater star going wide with releases again soon and. That's the latest for now.

We mean all of it. Amc completing the stock sale today shares. Closing down just eighteen percent and check out what. Amc said today. In a regulatory filing the circumstances we caution against investing in our common stock unless you are prepared to incur the risk of losing all or a substantial portion of your investment. What should we make of all of this guy. Well first of all. I mean it's great to be back and i got to taste. Some people don't realize how difficult this show is to host when we're all here together you've been able to do this now for fourteen months with us in all different positions. It's remarkable what you've done and our entire staff the guys and gals and guys and gals here at the nasdaq. I just wanted to say that because it's important. What do i make of it. Well you go swimming out in california. You go to australia and see those signs. You can swim. But they're great white sharks in the water understand. That's the same thing that ceo's telling he's basically said listen. There's a chance that this goes zero. Four warned his forearm. Now if you're in for the fun and you just have a few dollars that you messing around with. That's fine but understand that the ceo of the company said the fundamentals. Don't line up with our stock price. That tells you all you need to know in my opinion now karen feinerman. You have been passionate about this. Amc story adam. Aaron has navigated this read it frenzy like a pro as if he's been through this before somehow what do you make this been through before i mean. He has handled this brilliantly. Just absolute perfection lead today. He issued blondes. In december. i lean bonds meaning that that's the highest security. You can have fifteen percent interest fifteen. That's crazy he will do. He was doing anything to just save the ship. And then the miracle happens and wall. Street bed's ready. They're all excited about it. And the story gets elected any and he's able to sell stock. Remember that was like nine or ten and then on conference calls he says they own the majority of my stock i work for them and the stock rises again and he's able to raise more money and then read at apes they love dian fossey the guerrillas and so he has the company donate fifty thousand dollars to that and fifty thousand dollars of his own money which is just absolute genius. Stock goes up again. He sells more. he offers popcorn and discounts to shareholders. Brilliant may love him and then today he files this be afraid. You know what my guys and girls. You've helped me. I don't want you to get hurt. Brilliant again. I mean kudos to adam and he did everything possible to save the ship and i. I don't know if he gets her or not. But at this rate he'll save the ship by you know the middle of june. It's extraordinary good for him. I don't know how he did it but just masterful from a company that the into the abyss of bankruptcy not knowing if it could survive the pandemic to where it is now dan. I mean what i mean. It's nine day even if the fundamentals even if the industry may not be pointed in the right direction for him. It's a dramatic change. I listen to what karen speaking to is how he's operated over the last six months things that are out of his control and he's done it right. I think there's a lot of criticism back in january and february. What game stop did or didn't do in the same situation. I think it's really important to go back and remember two thousand eighteen. This company did about five point. Five billion dollars in revenues. They did about five point. Five billion dollars in revenues in two thousand nineteen in two thousand and nineteen. They lost one hundred twelve million dollars in that income. They were already losing money. On five and a half billion dollars in revenue. It's millie the business coming back. You think those people are buying stock you think they actually use the product no they. Don't they stream they steal whatever the heck it is that they do for movies so i guess at the end of the day. It's fantastic that they've raised a billion dollars. They still have billion dollars in debt and they don't generate cash and they actually lose money so they're going to be in a really difficult situation and we also know after the game stopped this. It's likely to come in a a great deal in the not so distant future or maybe we all just don't understand this new way of quote unquote valuing companies on wall street. Tim i'll go to you. Because i know you're going to just laugh all over this but rich guelph on the sea of max's on earlier today and he said you know what far be it for me to try and understand the new ways. I obviously missing something going on here but money is being made. The stock is going higher. What what do you are. We entering some sort of new air. I mean i understand. Fundamentals are fundamental evaluation valuations. But are we missing something or again. The annals community downgraded. I maxed too. So i mean you have a dynamic here where look i i. I don't Capital markets dynamics are very powerful. And let's also be clear. Institutional investors are very much involved in this. I mean mudrik capital. Let's talk about some genius here. By the way. I mean these guys made seventy five million dollars on a major major stock flip. So i think you've seen it. From all sides capital markets dynamics to the extent that a balance sheet can be improved. Whether it's entirely cleaned up is a very different story. Are i think the things that we're talking about. We applauded at nine dollars a share raise. Why wouldn't we applaud yesterday. And into today. So i mean you have a case here where yes. That's very good news for the company but it's hard for me to to argue with with what's been said interest expense still significant for these guys. What kind of cap backs. What kind of optics. What's the real story for tomorrow. And and being opportunistic and buying up a theater or two and maybe taking some kind of leadership position in a much smaller addressable market even with theater exclusively and some things that i'm sure disney will do. But it's it's no we're not missing the fundamentals. We are not missing the fundamentals. No i agree with. Tim and i think that dan's point i mean the business model was broken. This maxed out. I think it mentioned it last night. Thirty eight and thirty nine dollars. In.
