The company’s CEO has hampered investor confidence in AMC stock. It also kicked off a trend on Twitter (NYSE:AMC) of investors posting about their positions in the company alongside the “#AMCNOTLEAVING” hashtag.

For those somehow unaware, AMC stock caught meme status last year along with GameStop (NYSE:GME) and several other companies. These stocks drew in investors looking to squeeze out shorts while driving the price higher.

So how exactly is today’s news affecting AMC stock? For one thing, we’re seeing a decent amount of trading as of this writing. There are currently some 38 million shares of the stock traded as of Friday afternoon. That’s a good bit of movement, even if it’s still below the stock’s daily average trading volume of about $42.6 million shares.

Traders considering taking a position in AMC stock on today’s dip are free to do so. However, they’ll first want to do their due diligence on the company. While prices are down today and may recover soon, there’s no denying that meme stocks can be incredibly volatile. Keep that in mind when considering any AMC trades today.

AMC stock is down 4.4% as of Friday afternoon and is down 25.5% since the start of the year.

Investors that want to stay up to date on the most recent stock market stories are in luck!
