How to Safely Profit on the Next GameStop

Unless you've been camping on Mt. Everest this week, you've heard the deal with GameStop.

The company had been on deathwatch since 2019, and it didn't do as well as other pandemic-era "comebacks"… until the Internet got hold of it. The price action has been just absolutely bananas over the past week or so, as momentum has gathered. In the five minutes since I started to type this, the price has yo-yoed in a $50 range.

GameStop has been a short squeeze of massive proportions, but as of Wednesday, the two biggest short positions, run by Melvin Capital and Citron Research, have been covered and closed. Finito. Andrew Left, the CEO of Citron – which really likes to short stocks – said his traders had covered their short at $90 and taken a 100% loss.

Without the big shorts, there's just no mechanical reason for this rally to continue. It's like a car with the gas light on – you might make it a couple more miles, but one way or another, you're stopping. It could be a matter of hours before those Internet-based investors realize they've bought big into a company that, for all the hype of the past few days, is still a really troubled operation on deathwatch.

Here's the thing, though… GameStop is only the biggest, most famous of these stories right now. Reddit, TikTok, and other social media-based investors have targeted other big Wall Street shorts out there.

I've made a list I'll share with you in a second, and I'll tell you how to play them.

Like I said the other day, cooler, calmer heads have a chance to sneak in the back door, safely pocket some gains, and get out again before anyone realizes what's happened… Full Story

Why AMC Stock Isn't a Buy Low Right Now

I've seen some fantastic stock opportunities since the pandemic hit the U.S. economy.

We saw the fastest sell-off in history, followed by one of the most rapid recoveries in history.

We've seen Overstock.com (NASDAQ: OSTK) soar tenfold as traders piled into the stock after the selloff.

An unknown company called Genius Brands (NASDAQ: GNUS) ran up fivefold after announcing comic books based on Stan Lee's characters.

Finally, Waitr Holdings (NASDAQ: WTRH), based in Lafayette, La., jumped more than 1,300% during the pandemic.

These successes have investors looking at beaten-down stocks they think will surely explode higher as soon as the pandemic is behind us.

These are usually airlines, cruise lines, casinos, and theater stocks.

But that's just wishful thinking, especially when it comes to a stock like AMC Entertainment Holdings (NYSE: AMC).
