Here is what you need to know on Friday, May 28:
It was AMC day on US stock markets on Thursday as the cinema operator totally took control of the volume profile, outdoing every mega-cap and growth stock in the process. AMC rose over 35% as retail and perhaps some other operators stoked the fizzle that was last seen in January. Ford continued its impressive run post Wednesday’s investor day but mostly it was the small-cap names that stole the day. The Russell 2000 was Thursday’s indices winner moving over one percent higher while the S&P 500 and Dow flatlined and the Nasdaq fell.
Friday looks to be taking the same playbook and running with it as AMC surges again in the premarket and futures move higher.
