Rumors that Amazon was looking into offering a live TV package as well, have now been confirmed.

Amazon creating live TV package - Business Insider
The rumor

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201975120

https://www.usatoday.com/videos/tech/2017/05/23/amazon-prime-now-let-you-watch-tv-live/102046756/

confirmed.

No details on the pricing or offereings yet.

With Amazon getting into this arena, pushing the boundaries on retail, cloud services, etc. I really do wonder how large they can grow. As long as they keep their laser focus on customer service, speed and cost, I think they can do a lot.

I'm very glad I was able to buy a few shares a while back while it was trading in the $700's... or course, I wish I did this a year or two before when they were in the $400-500 range. Wow.

Today they hit $998/share ad are now hovering around $996.

I love the Wild Wild West of the OTC market. I'm up 333% in total on $TGGI since buying shares last week.

I would sell those AMC puts soon if I were you. Don't get greedy.

I've been obsessively studying the technicals on this stock....this is not a pump and dump. There truly is a massive squeeze set to occur, and it could pop-off any day now. The squeeze on AMC could potentially make GME look like a pink sheet stock.

It's a different play than GME in many ways, and most of it has to do with synthetic shares than have made the short interest appearance not come close to showing its accurate percentage.
Nope. going to hold them but only because I have some pretty outlandish calls on AMC as well (don't have them on GME). The short squeeze potential seems exhausted on GME but hasn't really gone in play yet on AMC (and some others). GME quickly went to the pump and dump side of things after the original short squeeze. For AMC I just need movement. For GME, I'm betting hard on a crash and burn scenario.

Agree...this wave of GME feels like pump and dump. The AMC technicals though not only say that the squeeze has not happened, but that it could be even better than GME's (or worse, if you're a hedge fund).

The float is inflated right now by close to 200m naked shares. There is a reason why they're tanking it so hard this week. Watching the Level II data, you can clearly see the bid/sell walls being used. It's hedge funds trading back and forth to each other to dictate price, and they're also shorting ETFs. It's like a massive boiling pot of water ready to burst at any moment. We are witnessing the proverbial dip before the rip right now, similar to Volkswagen 2008.

I was one of the people that got tipped off about GME back in early January, and had reservations, but that's only because I did not do my own due diligence to study what was happening. I will not make that same mistake twice.

For giggles I made a quick and dirty overlay of GME and AMC. 6 month chart. These things seem attached at the hip.
I had been tracking this and looking at it on a daily basis, but this is my first time seeing it extracted out into a 6 month look. Wow.

Now do an overlay with inverse TSLA. It's pretty easy to see where the money was coming from to run the meme stocks up.

One thing I would like to chime in with, as it relates some to the Motley Fool and other many and numerous pay for investment tips/touts.

Never ever have been a fan of pay/subscribe for investment advice services. It is no less than paying for so called, “expert sports wagering tips”. If they all were so confident in their OWN analysis, they would simply invest/bet their own money. Instead, they USE everyone else’s money from those that pay into their services.

Read, study, run test filters with charts and invest on your own knowledge. It is far more rewarding.

Add to this. Today the DTCC rule was just passed by the SEC at market close today. This means that they now have the power to see positional data by institutions at the snap of their fingers.

This is coming to a head. Even Jim Cramer said this afternoon that hedges are screwed (in other words than that).

What I think will happen is that at some point the Hedges will need to acquire millions of real tangible shares. And I think they are shaking the tree violently right now as shares start to shake loose. Just my thoughts. Minimal financial experience and it probably shows.
This is the game. That's why everyone says to buy and hold.

You state that today that the hedgies "won," but the truth of the matter is, all today and this whole week is is an illusion to scare people. At the end of the day, at some point, they must close all of these positions. With a quickly increasing short borrow rate, along with AMC themselves taking procedural steps to rid the market of all synthetic shares of its stock by May 4th, the hedge funds know their time is running short, hence why they've put their manipulation tactics into overdrive.

It's a numbers game and a waiting game at this point, and only the strong will survive.

Do you happen to have a source for this info? I could not find any news pertaining to something passing at market close yesterday; I have seen a lot of mixed info on not only this rule's passing/timing, but also its ramifications, so maybe you can point me in the right direction.

Well GME is having a good morning so far, green and climbing the ladder.
