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."
