Why AMC stock is surging rapidly

There was a time when AMC was near bankruptcy but in December 2020, AMC avoided bankruptcy by raising over $900 million in December 2020. The company turnaround and successfully navigated the shutdowns and restrictions on theatres, and now any talk of an imminent bankruptcy for AMC is completely off the table.

The company’s market capitalization has now soared to more than $15 billion after it is recovering from the Covid-19 Pandemic but still the company has to deal with more than $5.5 billion in debt.

The financial numbers of AMC are a clear indicator that the trading is related to the future sentiment that rising numbers of COVID-19 vaccinations and economic reopening will drive consumers back to movie theatres.
