The AMC Entertainment share price has hit resistance at the $60 level and could see a pullback here.
Volumes decline in AMC
AMC Entertainment shares are drifting lower as volumes dry up in the retail stock.
The June 2nd high saw 766m shares changing hands and that number has steadily declined to 99m yesterday. The stock has also seen the news cycle dry up and the company has secured further financing with a plan to go on the ‘offensive’.
Next earnings will be key
AMC investors will have to wait another month for the latest earnings release with the 5th of August pencilled in for the Q2 release.
Losses have improved from -5.44 to -1.42 in the stock and the company could surprise to the upside. The consensus estimate is for the company to report -0.9 per share this time around but the company has seen a reopening of its theatres and will also have cash on hand to boost the balance sheet.
With a new war chest coming from recent share sales the company could announce acquisitions and boost the price in the future.
