After the interesting split that AMC recently did, famed short seller Jim Chanos is using the opportunity for some classic arbitrage. Chanos told CNBC that he believes the two securities should be trading at the same price, and will eventually do so. He has established a long position in Ape (NYSE:APE) and a short position in AMC. CEO Adam Aron has told Apes to combine the prices of the two securities to get the true stock price value of AMC shares. Shares of APE rose by 17.0% during Tuesday’s session. 

AMC stock forecast

AMC Stock

Wall Street analysts at Wedbush have downgraded their already low price target for shares of AMC. The price target was cut in half from $4.00 to $2.00 to account for the release of the APE shares. Wedbush is not impressed with the stock dilution, citing that AMC would have to issue 900 million shares of APE to repay all of its debt.
