Wall Street sets AMC stock price for next 12 months

The stock price of AMC (NYSE: AMC) has encountered a challenging beginning to the year, plummeting by over -33% year-to-date. Concerns about its future among certain investors have prompted speculation about the survival of the theater chain in the current year.

This year, the movie industry will produce movies that probably won’t match the fame that cinema products had in 2023, with some big blockbusters, which adds to the growing fears of investors.

At the close of trading on January 25, AMC stock stood at $4.08, reflecting a -1.21% loss from the previous closing and a -9.33% decrease over the last five trading sessions.

Trouble on the horizon for AMC

Initially popularized during the meme stock frenzy, AMC Entertainment has become a disliked company with an almost 10% short interest. The frequent dilutions, primarily responsible for this sentiment, have irked numerous investors.

The company’s latest update revealed a strategic move to exchange equity for debt to address its considerable financial liabilities, signaling a challenging financial situation. The company currently carries a debt load exceeding $4.75 billion and an accumulated deficit surpassing $7.8 billion.

Recently, AMC CEO Adam Aron shared his thoughts on the stock performance on X social media, saying: 

“So painful: 4 years after Covid, the industry-wide box office is still ludicrously anemic & AMC stock has slid to $4.48. Difficult to think about anything other than guiding AMC back in these challenging times.”

The CEO seems overburdened and in the lows as the stock itself.
