|AMC||AMC ENTERTAINMENT HOLDINGS INC||49.40||+6.59||+15.39%|
The stock, which advanced nearly 100% last week and has gained over 2,631% this year, continues to feel the love from the retail trading community.
GameStop, ahead of its annual meeting and earnings on Wednesday, also saw solid gains.
The Securities and Exchange Commission, in a statement shared with FOX Business, said it continues to track the volatility in "certain stocks" without naming specific corporations.
There were no major developments on Monday with either of the companies. AMC CEO Adam Aron, who has stepped up his communication in recent weeks with this investor base and even did a YouTube interview last week with Trey's Trades, did pat himself on the back Monday for those efforts.
In a tweet, he said:
"The financial press has banner headlines about how innovative AMC and I are in reaching out to our individual investors. Odd that they praise something so obvious. CEO’s and professional management teams should listen to shareholders. You own our company, we listen to you. Adam."
As for GameStop, Monday's rally has pushed the annual gains for the shares to 1,386%.
Chewy.com founder Ryan Cohen, who is the company's largest single shareholder via his RC Ventures with a 12.7% stake, is expected to be named chairman of the board.
