    This stock is a joke

    AMKR- high beta, low float, & high short-interest ?!

    The Beta of this stock is currently about 2.7. Years ago it was about 3. This means the stock is much more volatile than the market so it should be very swingy.

    As for upside pop: if we ever get big AND unexpected good news- the low float, high short-interest, and generally high beta should cause an exceptionally large upside move.

    However, In the long run, if this stock is good value (and that does not change) it should go much higher. As an investor, one of the key questions I would ask is: in your opinion, does AMKR offer exceptional value? I would also consider the high beta for prudent cash allotment (or if I simply want a big bang for my gambling dollar).
