Why AMC, Clover Health and Sundial Growers Stocks Dropped Today

Could this be the reason why three company insiders unloaded nearly 89,000 shares of AMC stock on the market last week, as Barrons just reported they did? Maybe.   AMC management seems to be spinning this news as a sort of “we are a Volks-stock” story — an investment for the average Joe. But if you read the fine print, what it really means is that since February 2020, AMC has had to issue and sell nearly 400 million new shares to keep itself afloat, ballooning its share count to nearly 5 times its previous size — and diminishing shareholders’ claim on any future profits.

In short, at least for AMC and Clover Health, there do appear to be substantive catalysts behind Thursday’s share price declines. There doesn’t seem to be any particularly bad news floating around about Sundial Growers, however — other than the fact that it has never earned a profit, that its sales fell 20% last quarter, and that the stock trades at 17.7 times sales, none of which is a recent revelation.
