Hello Reddit and ATERian's,

***** Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. During that time I started to notice abnormal things on my indicators & divergences from exchange reported data. This has led me to believe that the stock is/has been manipulated since last June/Aug. I am simply here to talk about what I think is going on currently with $ATER. This is not financial advice and you should not listen to a stupid crayon eating Marine who talks about stocks. I am not qualified to give you financial advice and you guys should do your own research to make educated choices.***

Anon, everyone is talking sht about $ATER and how its over...... (It's not over, so knock that sht off)

First off, unless Aterian is delisting this is far from over.

ATER is currently holding onto 44 million in cash and trying to reduce its spending. ATER isn't going anywhere, much to the dismay of Shorts. Aterian said, their goal is to weather the storm, and that is what they are doing.

Sorry, Shorts.....I'm not going anywhere.

https://i.redd.it/rcsuu3kzbvz81.gif

ATER is off Reg SHO, is this over.....?

https://preview.redd.it/2o3d3bz4cvz81.png?width=1215&format=png&auto=webp&s=32990e292586096379dc824dcb85a2377e63a5be

Look here at AMC BEFORE they ran to $70:

The Green Bars are on Ortex are Reg SHO Threshold List:

Yes, that is correct. AMC went on and off 7x separate times onto and off the Reg SHO Threshold BEFORE $AMC ran to $70.

https://preview.redd.it/sxy885gtdvz81.png?width=1215&format=png&auto=webp&s=6175fe081359a71cd1b031a4a5566b7929af9aba

How about GME??

On and Off Reg SHO 4x times before it ran to $500

https://preview.redd.it/7w3wk20hevz81.jpg?width=1244&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=512a3347ad9b6120ea1505534dcca6e760a51479

This Extreme Hurst is showing you the stock is going to slingshot back.

Plus, look at all the indicators on different timeframes. RSI on the Daily showed we were close to being oversold. MACD is starting to flatten and will probably start trying to cross over

https://i.redd.it/ly3y43tufvz81.gif

The people trying to spread FUD are either Shills or Retail with an agenda.

What do I mean???

Listen, love me or hate me, I'm not going anywhere. I was called an idiot for liking ATER months before I was briefly "smart" when it ran up weeks ago. ATER is not a Pump and Dump. If it was, I would have made some lame excuse and moved onto another stock. Guess what??? But I'm still here. I've been on this stock for over 9 months and I am not going anywhere.

https://i.redd.it/sq2u383fhvz81.gif

People WANT $ATER to be wrong.

If I'm correct about $ATER being highly manipulated then that means the Price is Wrong just like so many other stocks that Retail likes/HODLs.

It also means that many of the people talking shit about me/critics couldn't keep their own egos in check. They had to be right and I had to be some idiot...... There is no in-between.

So either they weren't smart enough to see the play, understand it, and have the conviction to invest accordingly or their own belief system will keep them from making money on ATER.

ATER requires patience which most Retail doesn't have but if you held, congrats. You didn't fold a winning hand and hopefully you are rewarded sooner than later.

https://i.redd.it/6pttd5mimvz81.gif

Options Chains should start growing tomorrow into Weds once Retail starts FOMOing in because they finally realize that maybe all the smart people writing DD like u/dz_moneyman & u/fishguru-1729 etc were actually correct!!

(I do not include myself in that group of smart DD Writers...... FYI. I already told you guys I'm an Crayon Eating Marine and you shouldn't listen to me)

https://preview.redd.it/ydg8onenpvz81.png?width=905&format=png&auto=webp&s=81ae89eaf2f7eb7d593fda053214e7a35906a146

This Gamma Ramp is real.

(This is not Financial Advice)

Personally, the $2 calls Deep ITM seem pretty safe as of writing this and basically the $3.5s and the $4s and $4.5s would be the next logical options to get filled if $5 is happening this week.

***NFA but commons are always more safe than options because they do not have theta attached to them. You can buy and as long as the company is around, they hold some value.

A gamma ramp needs a strong base of ITM with those $2s but also a lot of near the money bullish OI above it to work.

https://i.redd.it/8jy12ifxqvz81.gif

If you are not in ATER, you should look again at that Options Chain and realize what is going on.

I should be able to update the Free Float tonight or tomorrow when I get access to the Bloomberg information. This will give ATER longs a better sense of where we are at with this stock for later in the week with the newest numbers.

Good Morning Reddit and ATERian's,

***** Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. During that time I started to notice abnormal things on my indicators & divergences from exchange reported data. This has led me to believe that the stock is/has been manipulated since last June/Aug.

The Gamma Ramp that could??

Let me introduce you guys to ATER's Options Chain.

First, u/dz_moneyman Does a much better job breaking down the options chains but I'm just pointing out the overall big picture.

https://preview.redd.it/jya5kxkwtf091.png?width=2628&format=png&auto=webp&s=7bf3d984d68d0c399c46f5003279ba8908b114e5

For Days ATER has been stacking really bullish calls/sold bullish puts creating this gamma ramp but it's been pinned.

On this Bloomberg, look at the 225k calls (Sure, some of them are covered calls but sweeps have shown most are bullish) vs 42k Puts (Some of these are Bullish Sold Puts).

So why hasn't ATER moved?

https://preview.redd.it/qtq1nliquf091.png?width=1225&format=png&auto=webp&s=c6db877e3194e66f106236bd15fb91329e7c6ca2

ATER has no volume. Its 10AM and not even 1 million volume.

This stock is 100% just running on an Algo and Shorts/MM are just sitting back letting retail fight the overall market. They only had to short 40% yesterday to keep the stock down.

https://i.redd.it/wnrsh2o3vf091.gif

So how does this concern me.........??

So remember none of this is Financial Advice. I'm just simply pointing out the data. So there is a near fully form Gamma Ramp that is full to the brim worth of bullish calls that will probably get screwed because the market is tanking.

What happened if all of a sudden, magically there was some volume???? I can tell you that the Market Maker is not hedging and they are likely to attempt to pin the price either at $3 or $3.5

However, what if ATER had a bunch of interest at Deep ITM Calls at like $2 or other Deep ITM call / Bullish Puts ???

What would happen indeed? Or if you wanted to be more safe, what if you were buying shares through IEX or another LIT exchange.

The reason these Deep ITM calls would be safe, is if ATER doesn't run, then the 52 week low was $2.1. You would just exercise for shares long, and be long ATER.

But what would happen if some new money entered one of the largest Gamp Ramps on a tiny low float stock that I have seen in a long time?

https://i.redd.it/zhpk6bd6wf091.gif

Just hypothetical and nothing is advice here. But wouldn't that be interesting because with 1 million in volume, it would come out of nowhere.

https://i.redd.it/5mcikoy6yf091.gif

ATER is being Algorithmically Traded right now on ZERO volume.

https://preview.redd.it/u9lvzd3byf091.png?width=1225&format=png&auto=webp&s=ed43c9c6b8a2e34f831c7953f907bc57591a79d7

ATER is just chopping around and following the overall markets to the T. When the SPY / IWM drop that very bar, so does ATER. When they go up, so does ATER.

What if these Market Makers got a surprise since they like pinning this stock at where most retail will get burned???

Are these Market Makers properly Delta Hedged....??

https://i.redd.it/n76zx8huyf091.gif

Low Risk, High Reward:

ATER 52 Week Low : $2.10

ATER's Book Value is $3.26

Current ATER Price : $3.36

Current Cash Balance : 44 Million

Retail has a sustained interest in this stock which only grows each week.

ATER 1st Quarter Earnings : Beat on EPS 23.59% but missed on Revenue by less than 1%

https://preview.redd.it/fv3hdk741g091.png?width=383&format=png&auto=webp&s=6f9679af6e51ce92cee28e7ff72df87e080c439a

ATER was just trading at $7s before it got nailed down after earnings. Bots told everyone to sell at $7 and it was over.

https://preview.redd.it/gjdcp4hdzf091.jpg?width=750&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=458ab8efa9730dd2a9a221e3a71e967cbc46097d

However, I have been tracking this stock for months. Retail bought into ATER Aug of 2021 and never left, which is why ATER has been at 100% Utilization since March 8th (72 Days Ago). The only reason they went off Reg SHO was because the Private Placement shares hit the market / New Institutional shares allowing these new shares to reset the FTDS temporarily.

ATER previously was on Reg SHO Threshold for 27 days prior to just getting off it which is the 2nd time in under 1 year.

I bet you in a couple day or weeks, if the price stays low at these level and more and more people learn about ATER, they will be right back on Reg SHO Threshold.

https://preview.redd.it/vga06yi62g091.png?width=1215&format=png&auto=webp&s=dd1cc3f265d0dfc31e36d3c5d436877493c7a094

(Green bars are Reg SHO Threshold )

AMC was on and off the Reg SHO Threshold list 7 times before it ran to 70.

https://preview.redd.it/jw3enwa92g091.png?width=1215&format=png&auto=webp&s=328e44ed45ccb902c578bcc911afd7c1db2ebf97

GME was on the Reg SHO Threshold 4 times before it ran to 500.

https://i.redd.it/n35hcafg2g091.gif

https://preview.redd.it/5gi60kyh2g091.png?width=1221&format=png&auto=webp&s=ff5918ebe9d5ae7525bbc4ab22fa8989f6977162

Go check for yourself. Retail already owns this stock and Tutes are buying back in. Its just pinned because it has no current volume.

I personally just want to stick it to this Market Maker and these Shorts. These guys were so Greedy with the stock. Go back and read about how these shorts tripled down pushing the stock below Current Asset values. (Cash, Inventory, A/R, Etc,)

I know everyone has GME and AMC etc. Maybe your in smaller name Meme Stocks but none of them have this current Gamma Ramp setup like ATER which could blow up any second with the slightest volume. 100% Utilization since March 8th (72 Days Ago)

https://i.redd.it/acf7ep1q2g091.gif

The float is really small and locked up by retail. The 13Fs filed on May 15th just showed an Institutional Increase of Ownership of 30% on the stock

https://preview.redd.it/amcpyput0g091.png?width=955&format=png&auto=webp&s=1fb8129c9698d123da19719015ff23aee152908f

This could blow up in the MM/Shorts faces.

https://preview.redd.it/7pnburtlzf091.png?width=905&format=png&auto=webp&s=9850033ff65e160576f9df958fb7cbb2b9fbe6f7

It's missing volume....... All the other ingredients are there!!!

https://i.redd.it/la66fjk23g091.gif

If you want more information I have written numbers DDs if you want to learn about the company. If it doesn't run this because the market it tanking , it's going to run at someone point because of the low float/sustained retail interest.

I'm not going anywhere, we can't help the market crash but if ATER finds new interested buyers in the next 2 days......it could run VIOLENTLY!! If not, there is next week and the next week. Retail likes this stock and we aren't going away.....

Hello Reddit and ATERian's,

***** Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. During that time I started to notice abnormal things on my indicators & divergences from exchange reported data. This has led me to believe that the stock is/has been manipulated since last June/Aug. I am simply here to talk about what I think is going on currently with $ATER. This is not financial advice and you should not listen to a stupid crayon eating Marine who talks about stocks. I am not qualified to give you financial advice and you guys should do your own research to make educated choices.***

Let's address a couple of things off the bat.

1. Anon's not posting everyday:

So many of you that have listened to me know that I work a full time job. During the winter, because of my work, I have more time to sit around. As the weather gets warmer, I have to go out in the field because of what I do for work. That DOES NOT mean I gave up on ATER, it just means I can't push out Daily DD on ATER.

2. If I'm wrong about all this, how is ATER on the Reg SHO Threshold for over 20 Straight Days and why are their FTDs piling up with over 10% of their Free Float Failing to Deliver??

So let me explain something to those questioning things and their investment in ATER.

  • I don't care if you buy or sell $ATER / ATER - I presented you with Data and facts. If I was wrong, why would ATER still be on the Reg SHO Threshold and have FTDs piling up?

Seriously, it's not my job to babysit grown adults, who can't handle and understand the stresses of investing in a highly manipulated stocks. I can tell you that ATER has traded HIGHLY unusually for a low float stock.

https://i.redd.it/s8ed78drjgy81.gif

Think long and hard about these facts. Screw the Price which is manipulated :

  • Why has ATER a low float stock (26 Million Free Float) traded over 1.2 Billion in Volume all while at 100% Utilization??

  • Where are these magical shares coming from when Utilization has been at 100% since March 8?? (62 Days ago)
  • Why has ATER Traded 500 Million in Aggregate Short Volume since March 8th?

  • Why has ATER averaged over 63% Volume Ratio over the last 30 Days all going Off- Exchange / Dark Pools??

  • Why has ATER ended up on the Reg SHO Threshold (27 Days = 19 Straight Days on Reg SHO)

  • Why have Brokers, Market Makers, etc started failing to deliver as high as 2.4 Million shares in a single day?

So here is the truth, some people will miss this because all they can do is follow the price and that is ok!

https://i.redd.it/061rrw8fmgy81.gif

ATER is a duck on the water. If you look at only what's above the surface, you will miss the truth of the stock.

That is there are this Duck's legs desperately churning trying to convince people what matters is the price of the stock and not what really what matters which is the underlying, what is happening below the surface.

https://preview.redd.it/dvhz9f0vmgy81.png?width=798&format=png&auto=webp&s=f6e7f3821eeba2eef4a59415a69bbf52ba070709

So ATER was running against a huge sell off and yet you all were just watching the price.

https://i.redd.it/xs5al7l2ngy81.gif

They will try to trick you. Get you to sell and if you sold then decided to read this far, the question is do you understand what is really going on here on ATER?

ATER Chart:

https://preview.redd.it/w58bczz2pgy81.png?width=1035&format=png&auto=webp&s=0fbc417f82e9225e32fad74cfa3b712c5033dc40

This is ATER: Notice the Highlighted Yellow box. Money Flowed (Green Line) into the stock and never left it. This is backed up by OBV. The Price has not followed the indicators. In fact the second run has moved the Money Flow/OBV are now even higher.

AMZN chart:

https://preview.redd.it/u6so63tepgy81.png?width=1031&format=png&auto=webp&s=a536710bc6186c6c34ab68af1f60ecf2226e0022

Now compare this to AMZN. See how the money flows in, the OBV follows, and so does the ADL / Price. This is how most stocks look.

GME Chart:

https://preview.redd.it/bl2iy3flpgy81.png?width=1023&format=png&auto=webp&s=9f41a347e2e0f86009ecff30dc223ed3f0f3810b

This is GME for comparison. Which is much closer to ATER than AMZN. ATER looks actually MORE manipulated than GME.

This would make sense. ATER is a small tiny market cap in comparison and nobody was supposed to notice this stuff. They were supposed to just let these large short hedge funds run ATER into the ground.

https://i.redd.it/yjbvjkysqgy81.gif

Here is the honest truth, there are not enough shares on ATER right now and if retail can ignore the FUD/Price to see the underlying facts, they will likely be richly rewarded.

Smart investors are learning what the information I'm dropping in these DD's and they buy when the stock goes down, because they understand where the ATER stock will end up.

I have always said, this was not going to be a straight line up. It will come in waves.

https://i.redd.it/chgq7e42ogy81.gif

If you bailed, you will be kicking yourself later but that's fine. You do you. I understand what is really happening here and it's just a matter of time.

https://i.redd.it/s975lwe2xgy81.gif

What about Earnings Tonight?

  • Fact: What about earnings??? Well, does earnings have anything to do with FTDs or Reg SHO? No!!!. They are 2 COMPLETELY SEPERATE THINGS.

  • A earnings beat or a shit earnings report, literally has nothing to do with the fact that it appears they sold too many shares on this stock.

Regardless of what happens, the battle between short and longs will continue.

https://i.redd.it/6yywl444ygy81.gif

I'm not here to babysit retail. I'm just pushing out information to people . Double check my facts. It's all just data you can find anywhere.

https://preview.redd.it/9hvknou7vhy81.png?width=1037&format=png&auto=webp&s=4bc72e701f879989e61b90d0fd91824c6983961e

I've also found it interesting that nobody ever can disprove my original thesis or explain the data/numbers. They can only point at the price saying, oh see, he's wrong. The price can be easily manipulated on a tiny small cap like ATER but nobody can disprove the data I've provided.

https://preview.redd.it/cfn63ox8rgy81.jpg?width=888&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=342d2feb95ecd91dfbb3aede30060ee8c0243f62

I'll be on the Earnings Call tonight and I'll be reviewing the 10Q this evening. We will go over it together and I'll do a write up.

(I am posting on behalf of u/anonfthehfs, as you can only post one per day on this sub)

Hi Reddit,

I've been on the phone with my brokers/tech people over the last couple weeks trying to get them to explain what I am seeing. So far none of them have really been able to pin down something that makes a ton of sense to me, so I'm bringing it to you all here. Nothing here is Financial Advice, just noticing a trend.

Figure worst thing that can happen is you all tear me up for being an idiot.....which I always knew anyways and I have always claimed. Crayon Eating Marine here, Green is my Favorite Color.

https://preview.redd.it/jl5yn5cw5h091.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8ec889fa572eb2dc339658bb88f75e87c12633a1

Money Flow, OBV, ADL on Meme Stocks: (This will be longer)

Most people on here know GME, AMC, NOK, BBBY, the K one with the headphones, BB, (Some of the other Retail favorites that I can't mention on here because of Market Cap size but with a little research you can a bunch of these. I write DD on one but that's beside the main point)

GME (The OG)

https://preview.redd.it/s2eq3p646h091.jpg?width=1215&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=46890d2eecf3b116c6c4db3d0636ee74800a6dd3

GME was on the Reg SHO Threshold List 4 separate times before it squeezed.

Many people know about GME already but the real reason the Buy button was removed was to save the Brokers / current system. GME exposed the world on how Wall Street really works. Through a series of Loopholes, T+ Bullshit, Equity Swaps, Futures Rolling, Hiding SI in the Options Chains, etc Reddit has been following now like hawks the corruption.

The main reason Robinhood needed the Buy Button on GameStop (GME ) to be shut off was because they hadn't purchased the shares back in Dec / Jan. Which caused these FTDS to pile up. Because of our T+System, broker dealers are allowed to chose when they purchase the IOUs sitting in your account.

So say you bought your shares of GME back in Dec/Jan at 80 and they thought the price might drop but instead, the price of GME skyrocketed to 200s. Well now there are million more shares flying in and the price keeps going up.

There is no way they were going to be able to start covering these FTD's then the margin calls happened for the smaller funds. Well, something had to be done. These brokers had millions of shares worth legal shorted, naked short, longs that were Failing to Deliver, etc.

So they likely work with Citadel, DTCC, other brokers in the same boat, the entire system to keep the stock from running up by coordinating ensuring Retail couldn't make the problem worse. By taking away the buy button and killing their own customers life savings, it was they only way from preventing massive losses for Wall Street. At least , that's what it looks like from the outside.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Money Flow, On Balance (OBV), Accumulation Distribution Line (ADL) , ADL Volume

---------------------------------------------------------------

1st Example is how its supposed to look :

https://preview.redd.it/gtccpc1h6h091.jpg?width=1227&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b491d7dc1557ce7b1ab1dc3f2e532655de2e1b98

Ford (F)

Notice how they all travel together for the most part:

Key: Inside the Highlighted Yellow Box

  • Green = Money Flow
  • White = OBV
  • Purple = ADL
  • Blue = ADL Volume

With Ford:

Money Flows in : Price Moves up, OBV follows and backs up this, ADL travels with it.

Money Flows out: Price Moves down, OBV follows and goes down, ADL does the same

https://preview.redd.it/okjq60lk6h091.jpg?width=1221&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0e063c6540618eda31fda504e0aa1252b16a317b

Ford Yearly

Same thing here on the Yearly: Right?

Now Here is GameStop (GME):

https://preview.redd.it/yv8rmjrp6h091.jpg?width=1237&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=994783500b735ac0f2bc3d5b3bd50e1dfb7f8bf0

Notice how the Money Flows into the Stock but never flows out in a significant way?

OBV stays elevated pinned right with the Money Flow.

However the ADL slumps and is only following the Price of the stock ignoring Volume (Unlike OBV)

AMC (GME's Redheaded Stepchild- Just kidding I have some too)

https://preview.redd.it/to95e0zw6h091.jpg?width=1215&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b798e30aff565e1d82bc0d890bdfa4cdd05fa80d

AMC was on and off Reg SHO 7 times before running to $70

How do they match up?

AMC Yearly

Huh, that's interesting too..... Same thing with a couple more bumps along the way.

BlackBerry (BB)

And even more.......

This is even happening in the smaller Meme/Retail favorites like ATER, BBIG, etc.

https://preview.redd.it/new8x07d7h091.jpg?width=1241&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=165ceaea0a610359103fa41d5dcc74d111638334

Seriously look at $ATER / ATER. This is one of the most obviously manipulated stocks I've seen in YEARS of trading.Why? Nobody is supposed to be looking at this stock. It's supposed to get buried and left for day so they can hide what they are doing to it.In fact, its even worse because they have tiny floats and nobody is paying attention these ones. I mean its LITERALLY SITTING ON A GAMMA RAMP WITH ZERO VOLUME but there is ZERO volume.....Sigh. 2 Million in volume and it would fly with volume.....it's a shame.So they get run into the ground and shorts get to hide these away in the Obligation Warehouse where naked shorts go to die without any repercussions.

Lets look at another normal stock like AMZN

Money flows in and it rises and now money is flowing out and its falling.

So why does EVERY SINGLE popular Meme Stock look EXACTLY the same on this indicator?

So tell me your thoughts or that I'm an idiot. Either way, just curious why because the brokers couldn't explain this to me.

Hello Reddit and ATERians,

***** Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. During that time I started to notice abnormal things on my indicators & divergences from exchange reported data. This has led me to believe that the stock is/has been manipulated since last June/Aug. I am simply here to talk about what I think is going on currently with $ATER. This is not financial advice and you should not listen to a stupid crayon eating Marine who talks about stocks. I am not qualified to give you financial advice and you guys should do your own research to make educated choices.***

"Oh, ATER Stock is down like 40% Anon!! You are a shill Pump and Dumper!!!" - Angry Mob

First, ATER is not a Pump & Dump.

ATER is a real company (With a positive shareholder equity) and they would have been profitable last year, had container cost had not gone from 3k to 30k in a span of like 3 months. They were a growing company that got nailed by the global shipping crisis.

Next, I haven't sold anything so there is no dump. I have been writing DD on ATER for over 9 months and been buying long especially when it got near book value.

So literally, nothing has changed for me. I had been down here sub $3 just weeks ago with ATER.Before the ran to $7. I have not sold any shares. ATER is just highly manipulated because how small the float/market cap on.

Nobody was supposed to notice shorts/MM burying ATER and killing this company. It was a tiny small cap that was supposed to get bled out and go to zero.

That's always been the plan for ATER. Now ATER has became a huge pain in the ass for them. Reg SHO for the 2nd time in 1 year. Spoofing, Possible Naked Shorting, High CTB fees, and likely corruption.

Look at the Earnings. They actually beat on EPS and only slightly missed on Revenue by -0.52%.

Wait, wtf......why is the stock down so much then?

Great question right!!

https://i.redd.it/u6d8qxhpvny81.gif

I want to make sure everyone understands this. This was written up by: u/urMomTradesShitcoins

However it's so important that I'm taking the entire thing and putting in here for more exposure.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Position - increased to $44mm

Inventory - increased to $75.4mm

Factors important to a squeeze have not changed- The company is not going bankrupt anytime with soon and have enough cash and inventory to last them through the shipping and supply chain crisis.

They can also leverage their financing deal with Mid Cap for more funding if they need it...

The HIT JOB explained!

We all saw the (.78) EPS miss yesterday, but who noticed why?

Answer: GOODWILL IMPAIRMENT

$29 million operating loss from goodwill impairment due to loss of market cap on March 31 when ER was filed. Guess what they were doing to the company on march 31? They shorted it under book value. That loss of market cap turned into a $29 million goodwill impairment loss, which caused the massive dip. Had they not shorted us down during ER filing, the eps would have been a beat!

Yaniv called this out on the ER (transcript seen here)

What does this mean???

This was a planned, coordinated hit job leading up to the ER filing date. They had to keep it under book value through March 31 to let it reflect on their ER, after that, they let it rise again because the damage was done and they knew it!

https://preview.redd.it/547eudwevny81.jpg?width=1480&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=de63fdd1c765209c643ea2a6b19c3534ea42fc53

Nothing has changed- Ortex Data has only gotten juicier from this! This is a game of chess, they made their move- now we make ours!

If we play this correctly, all they will have done is increased SI, increased CTB, and dropped the price so more people can load up cheaper.

https://preview.redd.it/lh6xxxfivny81.jpg?width=2436&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=edb951b0b2d7927a5ea2a24d40d382fae69b08a6

TLDR; This hit job was done on ATER to effect the Earnings Report to scare retail, but we're better positioned than ever now thanks to this... stay strong, BTFD and ofc, this is NFA I just like the stock!

Thanks u/urMomTradesShitcoins

Anon, I'm down a lot of money right now. What is going to happen?

I'd like you to read another DD written by u/thehedgefundriddler :

https://www.reddit.com/r/ATERstock/comments/um5wyl/vital_dd_for_nervous_gaters_weve_been_here_before/

Summary: He explains that Shorts have played this exact game before on ATER back in Aug of 2021.

ATER had strong earnings on Aug 9th

Net Revenue up 14%??

Gross margin up almost 50 %???

Cash on hand???

The stock followed these strong earnings by dropping to its 52 week low of $3.04

https://preview.redd.it/1icmqpuwxny81.jpg?width=197&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=1a3250bece950956d95e42fba92e074480a595a5

TLDR: ATER 1 year ago, if you had sold at $3 a share right after earnings, you would have missed the Wyckoff Spring that lead the stock up to $19 a share.

It's a great read and give him some love.

What is Wyckoff Spring?

A Wyckoff Spring occurs when a market average (or stock) falls below its trading range, and makes a new “panic low” — and then “springs” back into its previous range. Its a relatively rare situation, one that is usually associated with a sell off.

Here is Wyckoff’s explanation:

At its core, Wyckoff’s work is based on the analysis of trading ranges, and determining when stocks are in “basing,” “markdown,” “distribution,” or “markup” phases. Incorporated into these phases are the ongoing shifts between “weak hands” (public ownership) and “composite operators”, now commonly known as smart money.

LOL- Did you catch that? Wyckoff just used "weak hands" / "paper hand" to describe the panic selling retail investors and how "smart money" acquires their shares to run up.

Look familiar?

https://i.redd.it/9tsgvrse1oy81.gif

Look at the last time the stock got nailed down hard after earnings. The next week the stock was on the move. Guess what is right around the corner?

https://preview.redd.it/zvihgmn72oy81.png?width=923&format=png&auto=webp&s=291c4428a0ad32a77144f35ee9d721c4de8839aa

The further ATER gets pushed down, the cheaper shares get for Retail longs.

They goal has always been to shake the tree. They pushed it up to $7 to try to get retail out (People bagholding have a chance to get out with some profit/break even) and now they are pushing it down to shake "weak hands" retail out.

They need your shares which is why they are on Reg SHO.

So they are on Reg SHO Threshold, FTDs piling up, and they will push this down to a Wyckoff Spring area.

Oh, how strange, we have a fully formed Options chain right there......what a coincidence........

https://i.redd.it/az91cme73oy81.gif

Here are the Facts:

Squeeze Ready?

  1. Is ATER on the Reg SHO Threshold list for 13 Consecutive Days? -
  2. Are ATER FTD's stacking up and that beginning data going to show on May 16th? -
  3. Are your own brokers having issues locating shares?? -
  4. Is ATER 's Utilization 100%? (Yes, since March 8th which was 63 Days ago)-
  5. Is ATER 's Short Interest over 15% (Yes, its over 40.69%) -
  6. **Is ATER 's Cost to Borrow high? (Yes, its 230.97% CTB Average or 124% on Fintel) -**✅
  7. Is ATER top #10 on Fintels Short Squeeze Score? Yes - ✅
  8. Is ATER top #10 on Gamma Short Squeeze Score? Yes - ✅
  9. Does it have massive and growing support? Yes - ✅
  10. Is the float small? (Yes only 26.27 Million Free Float) - ✅
  11. ORTEX has issued all 3 of short squeeze signals on ATER same as it did with SPRT, AMC, & GME - ✅

https://preview.redd.it/kqdre45r3oy81.jpg?width=888&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=40b2dc29516d8883c8dbca48b684bd560441c3fa

TLDR:

-ATER shorts pushed down the price to make the balance sheet look worst than it really was cause Retail to panic.

-ATER has 44 Million and has no need to further dilution which is why they didn't dilute when it hit $7 prior to earning when they could have.

-Ortex numbers are higher and the stock price is lower. This means retail is going to have an interesting power to average down here or let shorts escape.

- I'm not going anywhere and I will continue to write DD with data backing it. Fact check this information for yourself.

I like the stock long and will continue to buy it because I understand what is going on behind the curtain.

DRS: You really want to sell down here?

I'm not recommending anyone does anything. Someone in the Discord asked information about DRS and here is it.

Are your ATER stocks being held in a brokerage ( They own the shares) or are the shares in your own name ( You own the shares) ?

DRS lets you own the shares directly and those shares cannot be lent out.

DD ATER is looking GREAT! LISTEN UP!

299 Upvotes

gATERs and hATERS alike- listen up!

I come to you to dispell the FUD, slay the shorts, and reinvigorate the masses on this play. There has been a lot of awesome DD done on this stock, but today I saw a major development that will substantially help ATER's forward guidance- shipping prices!

Global ocean freight prices are down 3% this week - with China to US West Coast dropping a whopping 7%!

https://preview.redd.it/9d1hbkrizvx81.png?width=387&format=png&auto=webp&s=b3f749a84a5764a71baed8580bc5289f564657cc

As many of you know, the shipping prices have been the biggest short contributor to the short thesis in this stock. As these prices continue to decline, ATER's cash burn rate will continue to drop substantially every week.

Now let's take a look at the rest of the the details on why I am bullish going into next week!

Balance sheet

Aterian ended 2021 with $10.48mm cash receivables. This is money owed to ATER by debtors - hopefully we start seeing this cash move into their assets this quarter. They also had $63.05mm in inventory of finished goods- this is huge as the supply chain issues didn't effect the production of these goods, and with the Amazon shipping deal they had for reduced rates, I think we see this inventory come down and converted to cash this quarter.

https://preview.redd.it/zkgqd9z30wx81.png?width=1043&format=png&auto=webp&s=45aa041ea6e0a5f43af627a3c69f993daa59587e

Total Assets ending 2021 were $313.57mm, and their Total Liabilities were $83.74mm, bringing their debt to equity ratio to 28.49% , a huge improvement and a sign this is a HEALTHY company! For reference, a score of .5 debt : equity is considered good, and we are almost double that!

https://preview.redd.it/kbjshzw40wx81.png?width=1049&format=png&auto=webp&s=83d10fbeaa29f6abf0a3c6ac339b2023a92ddef4

you can find the balance sheet here or on their SEC filings: https://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/ater/financials/balance-sheet

Renegotiated debt deal for 2022 and beyond

We got rid of the predatory lender, High Trail, in 2021! We have a new agreement to finance the remaining debt at a much more manageable cost and risk to the company

8-K for this even can be found here: https://ir.aterian.io/node/8666/html

Private Placement completed on March 2!

This $27.5mm should be reflected on their balance sheet, further strengthening their cash position and allowing them to resume M&A or pay down more debt.

Public interest and sentiment is growing FAST

We are moving up FAST on Apewisdom- retail is getting involved heavily and seeing this opportunity.

Even The Street is saying ATER is the #1 short squeeze for May! https://www.thestreet.com/memestocks/reddit-trends/why-aterian-is-the-top-short-squeeze-stock-pick-for-may

Summer is a huge cash-cow for ATER products

You can see the interest and sales of their big products on Google Trends spikes every summer- See Homelabs:

FTD's

Yup, they are piling up and the T+35 date is just around the corner for a huge pile of them.

https://preview.redd.it/sgz1y6to0wx81.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=846013a72bb8a007096914a8218950274b18b916

Additional key highlights I am restating from FY 2021, for those who are new or missed this:

  1. Full year 2021 net revenue grew 33.4% year over year to $247.8 million, compared to $185.7 million in the full year of 2020.
  2. Full year gross margin improved to 49.2% compared to 45.6% in 2020.
  3. Full year 2021 operating loss of $(32.8) million declined from $(34.8) million in 2020. Full year operating loss includes a net gain of $26.4 million net change in fair value and settlement of earn-out liabilities and $29.0 million of non-cash stock compensation.
  4. For the full year 2021, 40 new products were launched compared to 37 in the full year 2020.

Our warrant situation is also looking GREAT! No dilution on the table through at least September at this price level- I will let u/AnonFtheHF talk about that though!

We are in a great spot here gATERS! And to the hATERs- you must be underwater in your shorts because I don't see how you can be bearish with all of this great news.

Hello Reddit and ATERian's,

This DD is DAMNING to Shorts, Market Makers, the entire T+Plus Settlement System. There is a reason why ATER was on the SEC's Reg SHO Threshold List now for 22 Straight Days when rules state they should be closed after 13 Days.......

https://preview.redd.it/nqwrva79qez81.png?width=1115&format=png&auto=webp&s=2b1be39aeb50f2ca8eea30f5ca9a65a7bbe31da2

Hint: Because of the new Tutes buying in and then likely lending out their shares, ATER will come off Reg SHO Threshold like AMC did multiple times. New Institutions come in then immediately lend out their shares resetting FTDs, this happened with similar stocks temporarily until they launched.

ATER: A small cap stock that should have been buried / left for dead but now has become a huge pain in the ass to them. Retail knows and understands the truth: There are likely more shares floating out there than exist on this stock.

I have said this before, the lower the stock price is, the more power Retail holds. It's a matter of time on this one.

https://i.redd.it/icihpq68saz81.gif

Ortex Numbers look wrong and I'll prove it

Institutional Ownership:

13,238,076 Institutional Ownership (Should include Mutual Funds) = 21.23%

==========================================================================================================

Private Placement (Locked up Shares) Yes, go ahead and confirm this, Ortex and Fintel Numbers match this as well. We double checked.

(See prior DD for breakdown)

10,524,070 (16.87%)

Edit: Only 10 million was used so far (The other 7 Million in warrants haven't hit)

10 million shares already hit increasing the Shares Outstanding from 53 Million to 62 Million (The current Shares Outstanding) the other part of the placement is the locked up 7 million Warrants for Sept 6th, 2022

==========================================================================================================

13,165,261 + 13,238,076 + 10,524,070 = 36,927,407 Shares

Ortex still has 28.09 Million as their number.

So Ortex shows in the Green Highlight section that there were 17.68 Million Shares out on Loan and last week almost 20 million

And Exchanged Reported Short Data was 13 Million shares this week.

https://i.redd.it/nmmqek3ssaz81.gif

13,000,000 / 25,420,911 = 51.13% of the FF Shorted

17,680,000 / 25,420,911 = 70% of the Float on Loan

https://i.redd.it/oefgcx0usaz81.gif

You all keep watching the price. I'm here watching the Data....

Ortex still has the Free Float at 28 Million but when you actually add up the 13F's and ETF/Mutual Funds......it paints a MUCH more damning picture.

Feel Free to Fact Check this .

TLDR: The real FF after going through the 13F's, ETFs, and Mutual funds is 25,420,911 Million shares. Ortex is still reporting 28.09 Million for the Free Float.

OK, let's talk about the elephant in the room - the Q1 2022 ER

Bear with me as I frantically try to get this DD out during an exceptionally busy workday so I apologize for any typos or whatever, but this is HUGE and very important to the play!

Yesterday's ER was a planned and coordinated HIT JOB to cause panic in retail! Let me explain

balance sheet rundown

https://sec.report/Document/0001564590-22-018900/

cash position - **increased to ~$44mm**

inventory - **increased to ~$75.4mm**

factors important to a squeeze have not changed- the company is not going bankrupt anytime soon and have enough cash and inventory to last them through the shipping and supply chain crisis. They can also leverage their financing deal with Mid Cap for more funding if they need it... 

we are still at a great liabilities : assets (debt to equity) ratio of around 33%= HEALTHY

Nothing has changed- Ortex Data has only gotten juicier from this! This is a game of chess, they made their move- now we make ours! If we play this correctly, all they will have done is increased SI, increased CTB, and dropped the price so more people can load up cheaper.

TLDR; hit job was done on ER to scare retail, but we're better positioned than ever now thanks to this... stay strong, BTFD and ofc, this is NFA I just like the stock!

DD AnonFtheHFs $ATER / ATER DD: 04-19-22 : How high is your resolve??? The day the Market Makers and Shorts Attacked to Shake the Retail Tree!! Did you fall out?

609 Upvotes

https://i.redd.it/mox56fkp5ju81.gif

Hello Reddit,

$ATER / ATER People : What have I been saying to you over and over again???

The Market Makers and Shorts are going to try to trick you with the Price.

https://i.redd.it/hbdb4f777ju81.gif

What is happening ANON??? It just keeps going down???

u/DZ_moneyman has been all over this. DZ identified areas of low Volume that Shorts aggressively attacked and sent the stock tail spinning lower.

Right now, the Market Makers are Dehedging the 6.5s options they hedged yesterday afternoon. This is because they have been losing max pain for the last 2 weeks and they are trying to scare retail out.

SOOOOOOO.......They know Retail was or did Fomo into today and so they did something smart.

https://i.redd.it/t9ojqpss9ju81.gif

MM/Shorts let it run up in the morning then slammed the stock sending it into a downtrend. Then they took the shares they borrowed long but didn't short and started bid whacking the price down. They borrowed 2 million shares to short (Probably taken from EFTs because shares are expensive) which is where they are getting these millions of "extra" shares, and they have been buying Deep ITM PUTS to push the stock down enough to make the MM dehedge.

They did all this because they are in trouble. They need to shake retail badly because the FTD data is coming out soon and they know retail can't control their emotions when trading.

This makes Retail think that other Retail is bailing so they bail too. This is how shorts shake people with Royal Flushes into folding their hands.

(These are all tricks we have see with GameStop (GME) and AMC)

https://i.redd.it/ozvyvmuh8ju81.gif

So the question is did you flinch?

Retail fears what they don't know so I'm explaining to you what is going on.

https://i.redd.it/71lfwci7aju81.gif

Well guys, I'm telling you these MM/Shorts are pulling out the stops on this one.

They are trying to scare you out of your shares. This is getting dangerously close to them losing control over 7.5 and above.

There is a reason we keep bouncing off that area hard.

I have been showing you guys the numbers but the second the stock goes down 15% you guys forget the numbers and crumble. You know the Data. You know what is really going on.

https://preview.redd.it/e7ick4xidju81.png?width=963&format=png&auto=webp&s=6abb1681c2eb0037d16e51567c31ef53b5fed580

Oh, what's this, a bounce. Well, if this breaks over $6 again because Retail scooped up Deep ITM Options or Bullish Puts....they are going to have to REHEDGE those $6.5 Calls they just DEHEDGED TODAY.

If Buyers Step in here, this is going to fly up again because it will force the MM who desperately wants the price down, to have to hedge again up.

https://i.redd.it/mro67uejaju81.gif

The Numbers: HOLY SHIT

https://preview.redd.it/ht6c500cgju81.png?width=1239&format=png&auto=webp&s=67806edd03f2ae7877535e60ea67a2091de29ea1

As of right now, ATER has traded almost 1 BILLION shares Volume WHILE at 100% Utilization and with a Float of only 26 Million shares.

Think about that shit.

They have had no shares since March 8th (42 Days Ago) yet have traded almost 1 Billion in volume and have managed to find Millions of shorts EVERY SINGLE DAY to short an average of 60% of the Daily volume down.

https://i.redd.it/k6ry2gb0hju81.gif

ATER Math: 1 + 1 = Duck

The honest truth there are millions of shares right now floating around the T+ system and in FTD's at this point. Look at the Securities Volume.

ATER is up 39.62% over the last 5 Days

ATER is up 144% over the last month.

What are some of you doing???

ATER was down .70 cents today after being up over $1.02 yesterday.

https://i.redd.it/pjdfwsdhlju81.gif

DD $OTRA (OTR Acquisition/Comera)- The next tiny float deSPAC

99 Upvotes

UPDATE

FLOAT CONFIRMED AT 678K! LET'S GET IT! (To the haters, yes slightly above the max I gave, but still one of the smallest deSPAC floats ever!)

Initial filings last week showed $OTRA redemptions to be so high that only 168k shares remained. We had an initial run all the way to $30 in PM on Friday, but unfortunately, the company then announced they'd re-open redemption reversals. This temporarily stalled the play while we waited for the new deadline to be reached.

That time has come. The deadline was 4pm today. According to their SEC filing this morning, there were 452,987 shares currently in the float. After the price action today, this number has likely gone up slightly, but based on the amount of shares that traded above the $10.25 NAV, we are looking at a 600k float max! That makes it one of the lowest deSPAC floats ever!

Even better, there is no PIPE in this play to worry about, so no dilution there. And, IR confirmed to me that the Sponsor Shares and Comera Shares won't be registered until the S-1 is effective. (FYI, they haven't even filed the S-1, so this is likely months away)

The stock is currently trending on Twitter and StockTwits and has the attention of some large traders and rooms, so we will be able to get the volume necessary to send this. Wanted to get this post about before 8pm EST because there is a great dip buy opportunity right now.

Let's get it!!!

Hello Reddit,

I wasn't planning on writing a DD today (Monday April 18, 2022). ATER was green and people were excited. Then we slumped a little and people kept asking when it was going to hit...... so FINE. Here it is.... lol

I posted a video last night about what to expect this week with u/dz_moneyman . I thought we gave the people what they wanted, maybe I don't have to write DD for a day......

Well, here we are!!!

How Do I know this is the Play??:

*****I want you guys to realize something and click into this chart!!!

*******This Excel file shows you how fucked this whole thing is.

https://i.redd.it/30i3d29swbu81.gif

ATER hit Max Utilization at 100% on March 8th and remember the entire Free Float of ATER is only 26 Million shares.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

- The Aggregate Short Volume since March 8th is 303,260,188 million traded shares when the float was locked up.

Let that sink in.

303.26 Million Shorted Shares have been traded short or closed despite 100% Utilization has been reached just since March 8th.

----------------------------------------------------------

- 786,727,025 Million Volume has been traded Despite 100% Utilization and 26 Million Share Float.

For reference, that's 30x the Float .

---------------------------------------------------------------------

- Market Makers have used 5.3 Million Short Exempt Shares to keep the price suppressed

-----------------------------------------------------------

HOW DO YOU AVERAGE A 60% DAILY SHORT RATIO WHEN UTILIZATION HAS BEEN STUCK AT 100% SINCE MARCH 8TH WHICH WAS 41 DAYS AGO????

https://i.redd.it/o5aokpr6rbu81.gif

WHY AM I THE ONLY ONE ASKING THESE QUESTIONS???

The math on ATER is 1 + 1 = DUCK

https://i.redd.it/42vhzcthrbu81.gif

These shorts and now the Market Makers are just looking for an out because they have lost control. There is no price target on ATER because these numbers should never have gotten to this point.

https://preview.redd.it/q5mv9r81sbu81.jpg?width=750&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3db07210b758785eee33dd38c48afc769bc12087

There are no more real shares out there.

Probably totally normal to have over 70% of the Volume going off exchange.......

I know my numbers and I know ATER can't stay like this before it RIPS into the Atmosphere.

Soon Retail and Tutes are going to stack Deep ITM call options and this stock is going to fly higher than anyone ever thought. Shorts will be scrambling cover and be desperately trying to convince retail to sell.

https://preview.redd.it/ty7a4oywsbu81.png?width=1319&format=png&auto=webp&s=38c15c91495925a71cc9925ca19a17d07ffd6e48

Did Shorts Cover today????

No, they just shorted more.

https://i.redd.it/17qp4bdetbu81.gif

Sounds good. I'll keep buying Deep ITM Calls and make them give me shares I know they can't possibly have.

Hello Reddit and ATERian's,

***** Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. During that time I started to notice abnormal things on my indicators & divergences from exchange reported data. This has led me to believe that the stock is/has been manipulated since last June/Aug. I am simply here to talk about what I think is going on currently with $ATER. This is not financial advice and you should not listen to a stupid crayon eating Marine who talks about stocks. I am not qualified to give you financial advice and you guys should do your own research to make educated choices.***

ATER Longs Growing Stronger

ATER: A small cap stock that should have been buried / left for dead but now has become a huge pain in the ass to them. Retail knows and understands the truth: There are likely more shares floating out there than exist on this stock.

I have said this before, the lower the stock price is, the more power Retail holds. It's a matter of time on this one.

https://i.redd.it/jwvd0z3zlaz81.gif

Ortex Numbers look wrong and I'll prove it

Insiders based off the newest Filings:

https://preview.redd.it/4kodhla1maz81.png?width=937&format=png&auto=webp&s=9b9d6dc691e94aa4e172a8e26b2f7a2b3051d8bb

13,165,261 = 21.85% Insiders Ownership

==============================================================================================================

Institutional Ownership:

https://preview.redd.it/lhyksp0jmaz81.png?width=918&format=png&auto=webp&s=998e28f35e64221ce0d43c07c601444fea618b3d

13,238,076 Institutional Ownership (Should include Mutual Funds) = 21.23%

==============================================================================================================

Private Placement (Locked up Shares) Yes, go ahead and confirm this, Ortex and Fintel Numbers match this as well. We double checked.

10,524,070 - (28.10%)

10 million shares already hit increasing the Shares Outstanding from 53 Million to 62 Million (The current Shares Outstanding) the other part of the placement is the locked up 7 million Warrants for Sept 6th, 2022

==========================================================================================================

13,165,261 + 13,238,076 + 10,524,070 = 36,927,407 Shares Accounted for as of May 13th, 2022 Today.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

https://preview.redd.it/qbl2mpz4waz81.png?width=1167&format=png&auto=webp&s=bfd531f1f0e47c1e9bb47a28e7e045c4a00e590d

Shares Outstanding = 62,348,318

Accounted for Shares = 36,927,407

-----------------------------------------------------

Remaining Free Float = 25,420,911

https://preview.redd.it/s7tqozvrqaz81.png?width=1221&format=png&auto=webp&s=a479ce1cfb27ee6a8ee72b0531ff4357733981b9

So Ortex shows in the Green Highlight section that there were 17.68 Million Shares out on Loan

And Exchanged Reported Short Data was 13 Million shares this week.

https://i.redd.it/9a44oqg1raz81.gif

13,000,000 / 25,420,911 = 51.13% of the FF Shorted

17,680,000 / 25,420,911 = 70% of the Float on Loan and last week that was over 90% of the FF was out on loan.....

https://i.redd.it/ie5a625graz81.gif

You want to watch the price.....go for it. I'm here with the Data.

https://preview.redd.it/n8jyaozowaz81.png?width=476&format=png&auto=webp&s=979acd2d01e78e9368f1c03a24afae54310ec531

Ortex is using 28.09 Million for the Free Float to Calculate the SI % etc.

I'm showing you that the Fintel Data and I compared it to Whale Wisdom Data show the new Free Float as 25.42 Million.

I'm posting this now but I'll continue to write this DD .

Good Morning Reddit!!

Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. During that time I started to notice abnormal indicators / divergences from exchange reported data which has led me to believe that the stock is/has been manipulated. I am just here to talk about what is going on currently with $ATER. This is not financial advice and you should not listen to a stupid crayon eating Marine who talks about stocks. I am not qualified to give you financial advice and you guys should do your own research to make educated choices. Again, nothing you see here is Financial Advice.

https://i.redd.it/xwmayaw9ews81.gif

OMG, $ATER IS DOWN 10% PreMarket.

Ok, I'm going to write this in bold and get this engrained in your head!!!

ATER 's Share Price does not matter at this point.

***(This is a super hard concept for most retail to understand but unless you are actively trying to find an entry point or find a dip; the share price doesn't matter)

https://i.redd.it/nxyw67t2dws81.gif

Wait.....Why???

So in past DD's (I can't link on r/Shortsqueeze ) but they are in my profile, I told Reddit that the big guys control this price because 90% of Retail buying pressure never makes it to LIT exchanges. This was confirmed by the current Chairman. There is also Payment For Order Flow and a million reasons why Retail never gets a fair shake.

However, just because they control the price, does not mean they are fully in control. Shorts/Market Makers use the price to shake the retail tree and get retail to sell because there is a big problem with ATER.......

https://i.redd.it/uxzursb8fws81.gif

Here is the truth about ATER that they don't want you to know.

There are more shares floating around of ATER than actually exist. This isn't speculation, this is math.

==============================================

https://preview.redd.it/yse07andgws81.png?width=667&format=png&auto=webp&s=c37fd87fc47e9ce615f53adf77a3b689480d50ad

ATER recent Volume

ATER is a stock with a very small free float. 25 Million Shares.

Let's look at Volume last week.

Day 1: 144.7 Million Traded

Day 2: 78.2 Million Traded

Day 3: 15.7 Million Traded

Day 4: 19.3 Million Traded

Day 5: 86.03 Million Traded

Yes, there are all types of traders but retail is picking up interest on $ATER slowly.

https://preview.redd.it/1d8lw5rchws81.jpg?width=2508&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f4b8394b91c9333d646b3d5d6031137d9701746b

Can't read that picture:

Last Weeks Short Volume / Percentage of Daily Short Volume

Day 1: 64.44 Million Short Volume (58%)

Day 2: 30.84 Million Short Volume (58%)

Day 3: 5.6 Million Short Volume (53%)

Day 4: 6.6 Million Short Volume (57%)

Day 5: 34.83 Million Short Volume (58%)

https://i.redd.it/7jf402vdiws81.gif

So we did that much Total Volume and that much Short Volume on ATER which has only 25 Million shares for a Free Float......

https://preview.redd.it/nkmbvj6dkws81.png?width=819&format=png&auto=webp&s=18d552b4bb3649d775a95f45a21e2398a341c393

Now let's include the options Chains from Last week!!

There are literally going to be Millions of shares that are going to become due this week.

Let's say 4 million shares are going to be due from the Options chains roughly this week. The stock has been at 100% Utilization since March 8th.....where do you think they are getting these shares???

https://i.redd.it/3xpgkva2jws81.gif

Wait, Utilization has been locked at 100% since March 8th. That means that they have borrowed pretty much all the shares available PRIOR to last week but yet magically found MILLIONS of shares to short last week to keep the price suppressed.

Fucking AMAZING right??

https://i.redd.it/vrj2o308jws81.gif

This is going to be the trick they are going to try to fool you with......The Share Price.

***So the Short/Market Makers have now sold more shares than exist for this stock and MILLIONS more are In The Money (ITM) on the options chains this week****

Let that sink in. The float was already locked up. Utilization was at 100% since March 8th.

They have sold more shares than exist which means they need your shares back or it causes an issue with liquidity.

It's not a matter of IF $ATER goes up, it's just WHEN ATER goes up.

Current Options Chains

https://preview.redd.it/r9xooikllws81.png?width=848&format=png&auto=webp&s=76f42b07d643ccee2b0041d68a6d41cc98fb7247

Let me explain to you smooth brain ones.

https://preview.redd.it/ecomdavumws81.jpg?width=2574&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=62387def8f2fd4bc708320555f0ba3eb05ec412b

You were just dealt a Royal Flush and the dealer is trying to convince you to fold. I have been showing you the math. There is no way they can keep this up before this legit turns into a GameStop again.

You want to fold a Royal Flush go for it. I'm raising my stakes so when I win this hand it means something.

https://i.redd.it/4sycffwcnws81.gif

This is how they are going to try to get you to sell!!

https://i.redd.it/3prwg3x7mws81.gif

WATERFALLS- Shorts and Market Makers favorite tool = Induce Panic Selling for dummies who don't understand.

So you are sitting on a Royal Flush but now everyone is telling you that you are going to lose. The main street media, the Brokers, Reddit, Stock Twits, Twitter, then you see it.....

One day a huge red waterfall and it doesn't stop. You are up so much money......I have to sell and make sure I keep some profit.

Boom: You just folded a Royal Flush when the entire rest of the table were all holding a pair of 4's........

https://i.redd.it/ur7tdz1znws81.gif

So, don't fall victim to trickery. THEY owe YOU all MILLIONS of shares that they don't have. It's MATH. I'm buying all Dips. And let's check if shorts have closed.....

https://preview.redd.it/aerbcq03uws81.png?width=1217&format=png&auto=webp&s=57525d51b553f9cb6b8df4dc0643d4a44d525f78

Nope, then buying more.......

***Just a heads up. There was a gap at $3.90 that the algo really wanted to hit. *** Tomorrow the MM will probably start having to hedge some of the gamma so let's see what tomorrow brings.

https://i.redd.it/hq0on8plows81.gif

See you all tonight / Tomorrow when I have exchange reported numbers.

Edit: I keep getting asked what Options should people buy. I am not qualified to give Financial Advice. I'm buying $2.5 calls and $3 calls this week and next week. My OTM calls I'm personally buying are $4.5 and $5 calls for 2 weeks out and 3 weeks out.

Nobody should be taking my lead. I am just telling you what I'm targeting for buying right now.

Edit 2: u/DJLowKey = Apparently said I'm a "Trust me Bro" so here you go. I'll take that apology now.

Edit 3: Oh look my Water Falls Prediction came true to the T.

Edit 4: Exchanged Reported (OFFICIAL Short Interest)

Not estimated but Officially at least 9.86 Million Shares Shorted.

They are pulling that sling shot back further and further.....

Last Edit: I keep getting asked how they can keep pushing down the price when there are no shares. So there multiple ways.

  1. Shorts bought or borrow shares LONG to bid whack and cause waterfalls.

(What this means is they bought shares with the sole intention of selling them as quickly as possible to lower the price rapidly. They do this with HFT computers and they flood the market with sell orders in order to try to make retail panic sell.)

  1. They are buying Deep ITM Puts then Exercising them

https://preview.redd.it/t1a3upfl9ys81.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=0819dda6c5b38b81039f3f2680c7190f2e479c9a

Shorts and MM are out of Legal shares so they are having to Spend millions of dollars on buying up Deep ITM Put Options and the exercising them or holding them to push the price down.

  1. There is a possibility they are not locating shares and still selling them short.

  1. Market Makers can Short Exempt anytime they want and do it critical TA points. They can LEGALLY Naked short anytime they want.

What matters now is what happens when all these shares that everyone is buying.....they come due and they can't locate them.......That's when the fireworks happen.

Hold on to you seats and I'll maybe do a lives stream tonight to answer questions after my kids go to bed.

Good Morning Reddit!!

Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. During that time I started to notice abnormal things on my indicators & divergences from exchange reported data. This has led me to believe that the stock is/has been manipulated since last June/Aug. I am simply here to talk about what I think is going on currently with $ATER. This is not financial advice and you should not listen to a stupid crayon eating Marine who talks about stocks. I am not qualified to give you financial advice and you guys should do your own research to make educated choices.

Let's clear the Air:

As some of you guys know, my post was initially removed and I was told that it was the Automoderator that removed the post. Not sure why since it didn't have links or anything that I don't normally post in here.

So please let's move on, I was told by the subs owner that I'm good to post here.

https://i.redd.it/355o3igmsat81.gif

So what happened yesterday?

So as we have been seeing each day, the price movements are happening because the options chains. The shorts keep shorting but now ATER is on the Reg SHO Threshold list which is where companies who have liquidity issues go when FTDs pile up.

What does that mean?

That simply means buckle up buttercup. We are about to go for a wild ride.

https://i.redd.it/fi524as3tat81.gif

No legit, if you have a stop loss, they will trigger it. If you are an emotional trader, they will get you to sell. If you watch this ticker, you will want to get out because of how crazy its going to get.

They might push the stock down to 3's today despite FTDs piling up, 100% utilization, Reg SHO......these guys are fighting for their lives because ATER could potentially lose them hundreds of millions of dollars or more in the end.

Legit, if you have never traded a GameStop or an AMC buckle then you need to get in the right head space or you will fold your royal flush.

https://i.redd.it/u7ezrrkwtat81.gif

Ok, I'm going to write this in bold and get this engrained in your head!!!

ATER 's Share Price STILL does not matter.

***(This is a super hard concept for most retail to understand but unless you are actively trying to find an entry point or find a dip; the share price doesn't matter)

They control the price. Retail can't control that and unless a long whale steps in, the only currency retail has are the options chains buying Deep ITM calls or Selling Bullish Puts / holding your shares to make sure they have to deliver them to you. 90% to 95% of Retails buying pressure never makes it to LIT exchanges. This was confirmed by the current Chairman. There is also Payment For Order Flow and a million reasons why Retail never gets a fair shake.

However, just because they control the price, does not mean they are fully in control. Shorts/Market Makers use the price to shake the retail tree and get retail to sell because there is a big problem with ATER.......

There are more shares floating around of ATER than actually exist. This isn't speculation, this is math.

https://i.redd.it/mfnxqnmquat81.gif

Wait, Utilization has been locked at 100% since March 8th. That means that they have borrowed pretty much all the shares available PRIOR to last week/this week but yet magically found MILLIONS of shares to short last week to keep the price suppressed.

Fucking AMAZING right??

https://i.redd.it/53kt5ghwuat81.gif

This is going to be the trick they are going to try to fool you with......The Share Price.

***So the Short/Market Makers have now sold more shares than exist for this stock and MILLIONS more are In The Money (ITM) on the options chains this week****

Let that sink in. The float was already locked up. Utilization was at 100% since March 8th.

https://preview.redd.it/pe0ed437vat81.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2490fd6be94923d6bfaed0efaccca05802d388f5

Current Options Chains

https://preview.redd.it/qt9cqqu2wat81.png?width=837&format=png&auto=webp&s=5dd392dd52068641ed32ad581c30499cf3cdaf26

There are literally millions of shares worth of options that are in the money. Like share that don't exist. They are going to do everything in their power to fight this. They could go bankrupt and the small short hedge funds are quickly losing leverage.

You will see crime this week to keep the stock under $5. They do not have all the shares they are selling. Look at this......

Free Float for ATER = Either 25 million or 26.27 million. This is a tiny number based off our volume since April 4th.

Let me explain to you smooth brain ones what is really going on. It cost you nothing to just buy and hold your shares.

https://preview.redd.it/5f56azbmwat81.jpg?width=2574&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2bfa58f5dde2a2a5b25f762045965e1b4bf4e53a

You were just dealt a Royal Flush and the dealer is trying to convince you to fold. I have been showing you the math. There is no way they can keep this up before this legit turns into a GameStop again.

You want to fold a Royal Flush go for it. I'm raising my stakes so when I win this hand it means something. I'm buying $3 calls right now and Selling $3.5 Puts (both bullish) and I'm going to make them deliver my shares.

https://i.redd.it/w1lxmb21xat81.gif

This is how they are going to try to get you to sell!!

https://i.redd.it/te98tej3xat81.gif

WATERFALLS- Shorts and Market Makers favorite tool = Induce Panic Selling for dummies who don't understand.

So you are sitting on a Royal Flush but now everyone is telling you that you are going to lose. The main street media, the Brokers, Reddit, Stock Twits, Twitter, then you see it.....

One day a huge red waterfall and it doesn't stop. You are up so much money......"I have to sell and make sure I keep some profit."

Boom: You just folded a Royal Flush when the entire rest of the table were all holding a pair of 4's........

https://i.redd.it/485sqlmdxat81.gif

So, don't fall victim to trickery. THEY owe YOU all MILLIONS of shares that THEY don't have. It's MATH.

If you buy common shares they will not help for until Next week. Deep ITM Calls with a shorter Theta help. Not Financial Advice but like me buying a $3 call for tomorrow (As long as you have the money to buy those shares) makes MM hedge.

https://preview.redd.it/9dgt24vlyat81.png?width=1321&format=png&auto=webp&s=16370a99b77390ff32fee8f40e6bb26bc8923024

Shorts still aren't covering.

-41.33% of the Free Float is shorted.

-70% of all shares are out on loan.

-100% Utilization since MARCH 8TH (This means they haven't had a lot of shares available for 36 Straight Days yet still are "finding" millions more each day)

- CTB is around 76%

They just keep shorting and are trying to desperate hit your stop losses or shake you out of your positions.

https://i.redd.it/two495jvyat81.gif

I keep getting asked how they can keep pushing down the price when there are no shares. So there multiple ways.

  1. Shorts bought or borrow shares LONG to bid whack and cause waterfalls.

(What this means is they bought shares with the sole intention of selling them as quickly as possible to lower the price rapidly. They do this with HFT computers and they flood the market with sell orders in order to try to make retail panic sell.)

  1. They are buying Deep ITM Puts then Exercising them

Shorts and MM are out of Legal shares so they are having to Spend millions of dollars on buying up Deep ITM Put Options and the exercising them or holding them to push the price down.

  1. There is a possibility they are not locating shares and still selling them short.

  1. Market Makers can Short Exempt anytime they want and do it critical TA points. They can LEGALLY Naked short anytime they want.

65% of the Daily volume is being pushed off exchanged negating any buying pressure. Now imagine what it would be like if all the retail buying pressure on commons was not getting kicked T+3. Tuesday or Weds Next we should be LIT unless they cover some Monday.

Good Morning $ATER HODLers and Reddit,

Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. I am just here to talk about what is going on currently with $ATER. This is not financial advice and you should not listen to a stupid crayon eating Marine who talks about stocks. I am not qualified to give you financial advice and you guys should do your own research to make educated choices. Nothing you see here is Financial Advice.

Introduction: For Months I have been Tracking ticker Symbol $ATER and all of it's moves. I have kept spreadsheets and recorded it's every move.

9 months ago I started picking up on a divergence on Daily Volume, Technical Indicators, and Exchange reported Data, Along with Short Reported data which started showing me a very different story on ATER than what the Price was showing.

I'm here to tell you about Market Corruption. Short's Greed, Market Makers Cheating, and why ATER is about to burst.

https://i.redd.it/lj5quxo0cbs81.gif

Let's start with the basic ideas:

Every stock has a certain amount of shares issued.

ATER Total Shares Outstanding = 62,093,569

Now this is every share the company owns

But Insiders shares can't be touched so you subtract them:

ATER Insiders own 10,944,912

So you take 62,093,569 - 10,944,912 =

ATER's Float 51,148,657

==================================================

Now there are also Institutional Ownership and Mutual Funds that own Shares.

Institutional Ownership: 11,803,876

Mutual Funds Ownership: 3,440,784

= Total Institutional Ownership / Mutual Funds Ownership

15,244,660

When you Subtract Institutional Ownership /Mutual Funds Ownership from the Float

ATER Float 51,148,657 - Tute/Mutual Funds 15,244,660 =

ATER's Free Float = 42,785,565

ATER just had a Private Placement : Those shares are locked up as well.

Ace (Mod from The Retail Collective Discord) / u/Blaize911 — 03/09/2022

I was going to post this the other day, but didn't for some reason, however based on this mornings conversation I feel like it's needed. If even as a reference document for later. If this does not line up to professional tools (Dilution Tracker for example), please let me know.

Here is my understanding of the $27.5M Private Placement: https://docoh.com/filing/1757715/0001564590-22-008816/ATER-8K

6,436,322 shares - company stock given at time of filing with accompanying warrants of 4,827,242 warrants

3,013,850 Pre-Funded Warrants to purchase Common Stock shares and with 2,260,388 accompanying warrants

The 6.4 (and 4.8 million warrants) were sold for a combined price of $2.91 = 6,436,322 * $2.91 = $18,729,697.02

The 3M (and 2.2M warrants) were sold at a combined price of $2.9099 = 3,013,850 * $2.9099 = $8,770,002.115

Total proceeds of 27,500,000.52

The 3,013,850 warrants have an exercise price of $0.0001 - Exercisable immediately upon issuance and survive FOREVER

The other 7,081,630 warrants have an exercise price of $3.20 and date of 9/6/2022

Additional Warrants in the filing

The company who did the work on the agreement Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC also got the following as payment for services (6% of proceeds):

567,010 shares of Common Stock

425,258 warrants for Common Stock at the same agreements as the common stock above: exercise price of $3.20 and date of 9/6/2022

Total shares added to Shares Outstanding: 6,436,322 + 567,010 = 7,003,332 shares

Pre-Funded Warrants that can be exercised anytime = 3,013,850

Possible Warrant conversion starting 9/6/2022 = 7,506,888

The 2 company's involved received the following Extra Warrants as payment for doing the deal:

Investment company(s): 7,087,630

Filing Company: 425,258

So a total possible dilution from this Private Placement = 17,524,070

So you take Remaining Free Float 42,785,565 - 17,524,070 =

ATER Free Float after Private Placement = 25,261,495

Ortex is Reporting a Free Float of 26.27 Million and I think we are more accurate.

https://i.redd.it/cabeee8jhbs81.gif

Ok, so ATER Free Float is only 25,261,495 Shares? Well how many of them are shorted?

===============================================

Over 10 Million Shares have been shorted as of now and that number is growing today as they try to suppress this price.

https://i.redd.it/hf9442othbs81.gif

===================================

Short Interest:

Well I'm sure it's fine, I mean the stock has gone up in Price so shorts are covering.

https://preview.redd.it/cfn1o9xiibs81.png?width=2507&format=png&auto=webp&s=a616fa521a60f1b30ccd79faaa3aa0bcc2349432

Wait, what the fuck, you are showing me that Shorts just keep shorting it?

https://preview.redd.it/gnsyhxgsxbs81.png?width=3781&format=png&auto=webp&s=ba4628e11368afdbc9fb27d18ee85cb9e86f6a25

Fucking Yup! Would you like to know why?

Short Hedge Funds and Market Makers helping them: Just keep shorting it because they can't let Retail/SEC know what what's at the center of this Tootsie Pop.

Naked Shorts

https://i.redd.it/8cl0br96jbs81.gif

Stop watching the Price of ATER.

https://preview.redd.it/j0jgou7uqbs81.png?width=1278&format=png&auto=webp&s=e9f87b28d24fd9f8ae9f79dd36049c92c2d8332b

It's manipulated and I'm going to prove each step of the way their fuckery. The only thing that matters is these facts I'm showing you.

https://i.redd.it/v1w5lu3kjbs81.gif

Listen to me: These guys are going to Naked Short, Short Exempt, buy MILLIONS of dollars in Bearish ITM Puts to drive down the price to get YOU to sell.

YOU have the ability to make stupid money because THEY got greedy. THEY have a corrupt system which allows all this to happen. It allows naked shorting to burry companies who employ real people and these guys were trying to bury ATER because of Greed.

ATER didn't get shorted like this when it was $48 a share. Go look it up. Short Interest picked up when it was LOW and then they doubled down on it. Sneaking in naked shorts each day driving down the Price trying to get Retail traders (who own most of this company) to sell.

https://i.redd.it/8nd665knkbs81.gif

ATER is a battle ground and you have them bent over a barrel. You have all the power.

ITM Options they don't think you will demand your shares but I am calling this Market Makers Bluff. (Only 10% of Retail makes the MM deliver their shares but ATER is going to be different)

I am Letting hundreds of ITM Call Options to expire In The Money today. I am making this Market Maker GIVE ME REAL SHARES. And next week I will do the SAME.

https://i.redd.it/3hiu3ws3lbs81.gif

Options Chains: MM's are going to have to break rules to keep it from running

https://preview.redd.it/x74tdzi9mbs81.png?width=1031&format=png&auto=webp&s=7118b7432bdf7487ee97a18b82a89a653f3263ee

Market Makers are losing Control: My guess is they are going to have to start breaking Rules/Laws to keep this price down or it would squeeze today

Anyone who knows how to read an Options Chart know that this is going to Pop. This is a Gamma Squeeze and they are using every trick in the book to keep it from happening because when the naked shorts come out it proves my thesis correct.

https://i.redd.it/3bqaokppmbs81.gif

Let's Recap: There are 25,261,495 Shares in the Free Float and Retail already owned all of them.

Shorts have used all the shares available to them since March 8th, 2022. (100% Utilization ) Yet they keep borrowing millions of shares that don't exist.

Currently in the Options Chains alone, Market Makers as of this post will owe over 4 Million shares that they do not have. There are Millions more next week, and the week after, and the week, all the way to 2024.

There are only 25 million shares and they owe all that and more just in the options chains.

https://i.redd.it/pbi3vgblnbs81.gif

I'm calling their Bluff. I want all my shares and I'm going to hold them until I see the short and the naked short I've been tracking close their positions.

Anyone that was in last year got cheated and they used naked short then. This time, I'm showing you how they are going to try to cheat you and call their bullshit out.

https://i.redd.it/u3380m14obs81.gif

I'm personally Buying Deep ITM Calls for Next week and making them deliver them to me like the shares letting expire in the money.

The Price DOES NOT MATTER. THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS THE STATS I AM SHOWING YOU ALL. THEY HAVEN'T CLOSED 1 FUCKING SHARE

https://i.redd.it/yq7zic0iobs81.gif

See you all next week, Now I'm going to Stream this shit and Answer Questions on YouTube.

Edit: They have covered 76k shares now. :) Only Millions more to go and people want me to do a livestream this weekend so I might.

https://i.redd.it/rx1u2b08kjt81.gif

Hi there Reddit!!!

Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. During that time I started to notice abnormal things on my indicators & divergences from exchange reported data. This has led me to believe that the stock is/has been manipulated since last June/Aug. I am simply here to talk about what I think is going on currently with $ATER. This is not financial advice and you should not listen to a stupid crayon eating Marine who talks about stocks. I am not qualified to give you financial advice and you guys should do your own research to make educated choices.

https://i.redd.it/slyey1gakjt81.gif

For the Newbies!!

First, off welcome and hopefully you will be able to follow a long the Due Diligence (DD) that I'm trying to provide. Let's get a couple things out of the way.

1. Well, I just heard about this $ATER stock and I'm not sure about it.

Sure thing, I'm just trying to provide insight for the Reddit Community. Obviously, I personally own a position in this stock and I would like the company to go up in value. This gives me a bias.

However, since you never really see positive articles about ATER, I thought it would be nice to hear the other side of the story. There are more factors at work than just fundamentals currently and they will never tell you those FACTs. Those articles you read online when you Google ATER, are usually produced a guy who used to work at a Hedge Fund but now "writes" articles for cash. Tell me that isn't biased as well.

2. Well, it's already up a lot already.

Yes, this is true, however if you read on, I think you will start catching onto why this stock will continue to go up as long as there is increasing interest in ATER.

3. I've been waiting for GameStop and AMC to squeeze forever, shorts never have to cover, why is this any different?

So GME and AMC both had their biggest squeezes when the price of the stock was low. (For the record, I was in on both of them and still own shares).

Why does ATER's low Share Price matter so much?? On a low float stock like ATER which is trading around book value, Retail actually has buying power.

At the current stock level normal Retail Traders like you and I can buy common shares and afford a good amount of them. The options at these current levels are also VERY cheap compared to GME or AMC now. It's harder to anyone regardless, to lock up a float if the share price is expensive.

However, with ATER still being at near book value prices and with an earning call coming up. Most Retail traders are able to afford a couple hundred shares or buy some ITM call options.

If you stick around to read this DD.... I'll explain why these shorts /Market Makers are in trouble on this stock.

https://i.redd.it/ssc1gz1bojt81.gif

What is $ATER and why does the price keep going up??

(If you want the company summary, I have the Ultimate ATER DD posted in that sub)

So a little history:

Many people on Reddit and StockTwits found $ATER in Aug 2021 when it ran from $3.04 to $19 a share, then spiked again on an secondary FTD run. Market Makers/Shorts held and suppressed the price so a gamma squeeze didn't happen for an even larger 3rd time.

Despite being on the Reg SHO Threshold List for over 27 consecutive days (Short Sales Rule 3210 passed in July 3, 2006 clearly states that, "Specifically, Regulation SHO requires clearing agency participants to close out all failures to deliver in a "threshold security" that have existed for 13 consecutive settlement days." )

For those of you not familiar, Reg SHO Threshold List is where stocks end up when FTD's start piling up. (An FTD is a Failure to Deliver just means that one side did not come through with their end of the the deal. They literally "Failed to Deliver" their side of a contract.

This could be a Brokers/Market Makers/etc, when they can't located shares that should be in peoples accounts or shorts that were never located, etc. It's basically a list of stocks who are being actively manipulated and the SEC/DTCC/FINRA all pretending that the list doesn't exist.

These rules were clearly and deliberately not enforced by the SEC/clearing partners and ATER was allowed to be naked shorted by Market Makers until the dilution from the debt covenant breach with their lender High Trail occurred. ATER's own CEO Tweeted about this in Oct. So if you held options or shares from back then the first time, I would be contacting a securities lawyer and start raising hell, you were robbed. The SEC/DTCC/FINRA should have made these shorts close on day 14. Yet, it was allowed to illegally continue after 13 days for another two weeks.

https://preview.redd.it/vciaheqtojt81.jpg?width=960&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=bb098b71d48921eb7c538a0a52d066b9bceb1e2b

TLDR: $ATER is a stock has been HEAVILY manipulated by shorts and Retail traders got screwed over last year!! The CEO called out Naked shorting on his company and since then, ATER's share price has been buried

Most recently, it's been Pounded into the ground / manipulated by a couple Hedge Funds to send it into a death spiral to make sure the company goes under. This would also cause 200 employees to lose their jobs. If they could get it to 0 then the Hedge Funds, then shorting ATER to ZERO would make these Short Hedge Funds millions in tax free money. In addition, they would be able to hide any evidence of wrong doing in the DTCC Obligation Warehouse once the company closed......

https://i.redd.it/536f2luhpjt81.gif

Why did this happen: Shipping Crisis out of China and M&A (Mergers/Acquisitions) left them cash hungry

Listen, I don't mind shorting when it's justified. $ATER at $48 a share was too high and shorting was the right call back then.

Where I drew the line was last year. I actively watched Retail Traders get cheated in real-time on ATER and then pushed down to below Current Asset Values. (Any fundamentals trader knows this is huge no no)

(This means the entire Market Capitalization of ATER was priced under ATER's hard assets like Cash, Inventory, A/R, etc)

Only companies who are going out of business get priced like that and this company was very much alive. That level of greed and corruption is insane even for the current market.

https://i.redd.it/ajgrnxtppjt81.gif

The Float: (See what I did there......btw I'm sure the dog was fine)

I've broken this down in multiple prior DD's if you want to check the breakdown but the free float for ATER is however, I want to get to the Meat and Potatoes.

Free Float of ATER = 26,271,289 Million Shares = 26.27 Million

https://i.redd.it/cy1o6ehwpjt81.gif

Why does that matter?

https://preview.redd.it/5ki2l7oypjt81.png?width=1078&format=png&auto=webp&s=8ef518701e72964ffe66c0a0532b8d8faf57027d

Look at this Chart really quickly. Specifically the Yellow box and the Blue Box.

The Blue Box is holding 4 Indicators:

-Green Line is Money Flow:

-White is On Balance Volume (OBV):

-Purple is Accumulation Distribution Line (ADL):

-Blue is ADL Volume:

==-----------------------------------------------------

Key Points :

-In Late Aug 2021, Retail traders started talking about ATER on Reddit and other trading platforms. It was a stock that had been at $48 and was trading new all time lows at $3.04

-The stock started attracting more volume and then ran up to a high of $19 before retreating back to $8 then back up to $16.

-You see the Green Money Flow showing money was quickly flowing into the stock. (Green Line)

-You see the ADL Volume Spike with this and also the OBV spike at the same time.

-The ADL line raises with all them but then something happens there and the ADL starts to diverge away from the rest. (ADL ignores volume and only considers price)

https://preview.redd.it/riubn827qjt81.png?width=1019&format=png&auto=webp&s=04041b602c521a62300f6384f39f26c0f9288145

You should see the other indicators show the MoneyFlow/OBV/ADL Volume leaving ATER in Sept/Nov when the price crashed then bleed off....

But it doesn't. In fact it looks like the Money from Retail FOMOing in last year, never completely flowed out of ATER.

That would mean that retail mainly had bought close to the majority of the float last time and then held on. If that is true, then these shorts needed to shake retail out badly so they pushed the price down to $2.1 below current asset values.

This backfired as retail started buying more at those 2 dollar levels which can be seen on the indicators.

March 8th : ATER hit 100% Utilization meaning there shares were very hard to locate

This is likely because Retail had been adding to their positions in Jan, Feb, and March when the price was in the $2s

These shorts kept doubling down and driving the price lower. Instead of Retail selling, they held onto their shares and added. This means that the float was likely already locked up Prior to March 8th.

Short Interest: Oh the Fuckery

If you are new, what these numbers show is that shorts are in BIIIIIIIIGGGGGGG trouble.

========================================================

-Utilization 100% since March 8th (37 days ) = They have had no shares to borrow for over a month but yet still are magically locating millions of shares to short every single day.

-Reg SHO Threshold List: Showing basically the stock is being manipulated actively. Failure to Delivers are rampant and people don't' have the shares they are supposed to have in their accounts.

-Almost 42% of the ENTIRE Free Float is shorted. (Not including the possible naked shorts the CEO claimed last year)

- Rising Cost to Borrow (CTB) 109.69%

https://preview.redd.it/83fzhozlrjt81.png?width=735&format=png&auto=webp&s=c9da7b980cd4d6d845d60725ce53050fa2fbb175

-Over 70% of the Entire Float right now is being loaned out which means they are getting desperate for liquidity. Many people are being sold shares that these Market Makers / Brokers can't produce.

https://i.redd.it/ivjv5miwrjt81.gif

How can this happen?

Due to this stupid system, you can sell way more shares of a stock than exist because we have options, T+ whatever settlement times, and corruption.

Guess where they have to go when they can't locate the shares and if retail decides they dont want to sell there shares down here????

That's right the Market and the price will increase until they find sellers.

https://i.redd.it/fjzy0t57sjt81.gif

So despite what the Share Price is telling everyone, these Shorts and Market Makers are screwed. Don't believe me, look at the math below.

They are kicking this can down the road hoping Retail will stay out of this stock or the ones holding it will sell. They want Retail to think the squeeze is over because they price keeps slumping at times.

https://i.redd.it/vzmd380gsjt81.gif

They've Got No Bullets!!

Shorts still have not covered. You all mocked the DD but I urge you to read it with open eyes. Shorts have not covered yet and all this was just options activity from a gamma run.

The Price still doesn't matter.

They don't have your shares if you make them give them to you. It's Mathematically impossible for them to have all the shares they sold you. Look!!!

*****THIS SO IMPORTANT: Since being at 100% Utilization since March 8th.......ATER has traded 760.55 Million Shares in volume on a stock with 26 Million Free Float.*********

The Exchange Reported Aggregate Short Volume over just the last 8 days has been this:

233, 463,175 Million shares on Short Volume in just 8 Days

100% Utilization Since March 8th and no shares available to borrow, yet, they have short volume of 233.46 Million in just 8 days.

Shorts haven't covered but have been increasing their positions.

https://i.redd.it/zdu1wbwhujt81.gif

The smart ones in here know exactly what is going to happen. These shorts and Market Makers are going to convince you that there is nothing to see here!!! ATER articles saying to stay away but this is going to pop

https://preview.redd.it/3ok3v9plujt81.png?width=881&format=png&auto=webp&s=2f83eb065546b7e8131d1a326e1b98acdf3f1aa4

Options Chains :

Literally MILLIONS of shares they don't have are coming due next week.

This Market Maker are going to try ABUSE the Short Exempts like they did yesterday using over 10% of the short volume to get the price under control. They will do that today as well.

You guys know the score. These guys abused the system and now they are trying to use the Share Price to share people away from their Crimes.

Math is on our side and I'm not selling until Shorts close. Not Financial Advice but my own trading strategy.

Have a great weekend and I'll livestream this weekend too!!

DD ESSC is every squeeze enthusiast's wet dream!

184 Upvotes

ESSC is basically what most short squeeze enthusiasts look for. ESSC is a very low risk, high reward squeeze opportunity. Short interest is high volume is low, float is low, and there is a good amount of gamma for 5/20. Institutions loaded calls for May, on April 18 which was after the April 16 announcement of the acquisition, so it wasn't done to hedge for that.

For comparison, Institutions also loaded Calls for BBIG 1 week before 5/6, and what happened after hours on 5/5? Oh, they then also loaded Puts in BBIG at open on 5/6, and what has the price done since. Point is not to trash BBIG, but to tell you where BIG MONEY says ESSC will go. Yes, likely as a hedge, but you too can be on board the NASA rocket for launch to the Oort Cloud, and not the one built by the crazy guy in Arkansas who just blows himself up! Come on, don't you want to go to the furthest reaches of the solar system?

The Bear case is that this has no short interest, and the float is much higher than is being stated. In this case, the LOWEST that ESSC can go, is $10.30. Why? Because it is a SPAC. If it doesn't actually find a company to acquire or merge with, it pays back the original investment. So, the bear case is that you lose at most far less than is possible in other stocks, and that is it. This is why ESSC is only down 1.2% compared to other meme squeeze stocks like AMC, BBIG, RDBX, or ATER, Oh, but Fintel reports a SI at 30%, so the bear case is also that ESSC has as much Short Interest as Redbox before running 400%. I like that set up!

The Bull case is that this stock is a micro float, the SI is at a minimum 30%, and as much as 240%. Fintel's numbers give it the 30% amount per the larger float estimate, as dated to April 30. Ortex had S and P Global confirm the smaller amount giving 240% SI. So, you're either looking at 30%, or somewhere so incredibly high we haven't seen numbers like that since GME. I really, really like 240%.

May 20 has a large amount of Gamma for Calls starting at $10, which it is pretty much guaranteed to stay over, since it is a SPAC. More gamma at $12, and higher. If this pops, it can really pop, and it has before in late 2021, and early 2022. In all probability, ESSC pops again, get in on the pad and not when she's lifting off. Don't chase! Plan ahead. I've seen price fluctuations to the upside on 250 share buys!

Retail needs to buy shares! the float is small enough that is can be bought by retail in a day. This isn't a 188 million float stock like BBIG. The price moves on very little volume. I drove the price up buying 2500 shares, and so can you! If, you do a market order and not a limit order.

On May 13, 2022 Ren Tech dropped their 13F. Let's see if James Simons' AI algorithm is bullish on $GME, $AMC, and $ATER this quarter.

Note that May 13, 2022 is only the 13F filing date. The shares were purchased by the effective date March 31, 2022.

GME:

Holy Shitballs Batman, that's a massive increase in $GME! I don't blame them, the share dividend and NFT marketplace is just around the corner.

Renaissance Technologies Llc reports 11,704.31% increase in ownership of GME / GameStop Corp.

2022-05-13 - Renaissance Technologies Llc has filed a 13F-HR form disclosing ownership of 306,912 shares of GameStop Corp. (US:GME) with total holdings valued at $51,125,000 USD as of 2022-03-31. Renaissance Technologies Llc had filed a previous 13F-HR on 2022-02-11 disclosing 2,600 shares of GameStop Corp. at a value of $386,000 USD. This represents a change in shares of 11,704.31 percent and a change in value of 13,144.82 percent during the quarter.

Ouch! Still a sizable stake, but greatly diminished. Jim's AI probably didn't like the c-suite selling so many shares last quarter, but what do I know. I don't speak robot.

For reference, Ren Tech entered into an AMC position on March 31, 2021 with 516,333 shares, 7 weeks before it's legendary run to $72.62. They currently hold 1,843,033 shares.

Well Hello Reddit........Do you smell that Smell?

That smell is the smell of Money and Fear!!! Did you see those Waterfalls at 15:08 and 15:24? Because everyone watching ATER did and that reeked of desperation.

That was a stop loss hunt before they had to buy in to hedge those $5 calls.

https://preview.redd.it/tw9cd1nxpat81.png?width=785&format=png&auto=webp&s=a4536ba789e5762c2950e7da54e12aa6f8345ea1

As you can see, r/Shortsqueeze banned me from posting . Shady? You bet it is.

Disclaimer: Some of you guys know who I am. I wrote the DD on $ATER / ATER and have been tracking the stock for months. During that time I started to notice abnormal things on my indicators & divergences from exchange reported data. This has led me to believe that the stock is/has been manipulated. I am simply here to talk about what I think is going on currently with $ATER. This is not financial advice and you should not listen to a stupid crayon eating Marine who talks about stocks. I am not qualified to give you financial advice and you guys should do your own research to make educated choices.

So just to recap everyone: $ATER is a stock that has been HEAVILY manipulated throughout its history!!

Recently, it's been Pounded into the ground / manipulated by a couple Hedge Funds to send it into a death spiral to make sure the company goes under. This would also cause 200 employees to lose their jobs.

I don't mind shorting when it's justified. $ATER at $48 a share was too high and shorting was the right call back then.

Where I drew the line was last year. I actively watched Retail Traders get cheated in real-time on ATER and then pushed down to below Current Asset Values. (Any fundamentals trader knows this is huge no no)

(This means the entire Market Capitalization of ATER was priced less than their hard assets like Cash, Inventory, A/R, etc) Only companies who are going out of business get priced like that and this company was very much alive.

That level of greed and corruption is insane even for the current market.

--------------------------------------

The Float:Every stock has a certain amount of shares issued.

ATER Total Shares Outstanding = 62,093,569

Now this is every share the company owns but Insiders Shares can't be touched, so you subtract them:

ATER Insiders own 10,944,912

So you take 62,093,569 - 10,944,912 =

ATER's Float: 51,148,657

Now there are also Institutional Ownership and Mutual Funds that own Shares.

Institutional Ownership: 11,803,876

Mutual Funds Ownership: 3,440,784

= Total Institutional Ownership / Mutual Funds Ownership 15,244,660

When you Subtract Institutional Ownership /Mutual Funds Ownership from the Float

ATER Float 51,148,657 - Tute/Mutual Funds 15,244,660 =

ATER's Free Float = 42,785,565

ATER just had a Private Placement : Those shares are locked up as well.

Ace (Mod from The Retail Collective Discord) / u/Blaize911 — 03/09/2022

I was going to post this the other day, but didn't for some reason, however based on this mornings conversation I feel like it's needed. If even as a reference document for later. If this does not line up to professional tools (Dilution Tracker for example), please let me know.

Here is my understanding of the $27.5M Private Placement: https://docoh.com/filing/1757715/0001564590-22-008816/ATER-8K

6,436,322 shares - company stock given at time of filing with accompanying warrants of 4,827,242 warrants

3,013,850 Pre-Funded Warrants to purchase Common Stock shares and with 2,260,388 accompanying warrants

The 6.4 (and 4.8 million warrants) were sold for a combined price of $2.91 = 6,436,322 * $2.91 = $18,729,697.02

The 3M (and 2.2M warrants) were sold at a combined price of $2.9099 = 3,013,850 * $2.9099 = $8,770,002.115

Total proceeds of 27,500,000.52

The 3,013,850 warrants have an exercise price of $0.0001 - Exercisable immediately upon issuance and survive FOREVER

The other 7,081,630 warrants have an exercise price of $3.20 and date of 9/6/2022

Additional Warrants in the filing

The company who did the work on the agreement Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC also got the following as payment for services (6% of proceeds):

567,010 shares of Common Stock

425,258 warrants for Common Stock at the same agreements as the common stock above: exercise price of $3.20 and date of 9/6/2022

Total shares added to Shares Outstanding: 6,436,322 + 567,010 = 7,003,332 shares

Pre-Funded Warrants that can be exercised anytime = 3,013,850

Possible Warrant conversion starting 9/6/2022 = 7,506,888

The 2 company's involved received the following Extra Warrants as payment for doing the deal:

Investment company(s): 7,087,630

Filing Company: 425,258

So a total possible dilution from this Private Placement = 17,524,070

Finally you take Remaining Free Float 42,785,565 - 17,524,070 =

TLDR: ATER Free Float after Private Placement = 25,261,495

(Yes, this is correct and Ortex numbers are 26.27 Million/Fintel so I'm close)

Tiny Free Float of 25.2 Million shares = So who owns all those shares??Retail does of course!!! Retail owns over 50% of this company!! Tutes actually have very little shares in comparison to Retail.

So what do these Shorts do?

They started hammering ATER into the ground. Earning beat for 3rd quarter 2021......shorted all to hell. 4th quarter = Wasn't a horrible earnings either.....hammered into the ground.

Why?

Because ATER needed cash and these guys were like sociopaths holding this company under water so when they needed to come up to breathe (Needed cash), they would have to dilute their float at $2.9 a share and warrants a $3.2 (All this dilution from the S-1 Filings are already accounted for and in all my DDs)

They were going to make sure ATER failed.

Last year, the CEO of ATER Tweeted out that the company was looking into Naked Shorting on their company.

https://preview.redd.it/16hw3nwjg6t81.jpg?width=960&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a955e3dd19eaa92ffeb5c5ceaffc76b1ca192e35

This shows up in my charting indicators, Volume issues from exchange reported data/FINRA, and this was conducted right out in the open.

Short Interest: This is what Greed looks like

https://preview.redd.it/6h7xh8llg6t81.jpg?width=1309&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=33109036c4d2e47783b6c001aeb2e022bca37cf3

So shorts had a chance to start covering at $2.1 but no, they doubled down. ATER was going to $0 and they were going hide all those potential naked shorts away in the Obligation Warehouse.

But look at that Oretx Data: THEY HAVEN'T CLOSED THEIR POSITIONS.

SHORTS THINK THEY CAN TRICK YOU INTO SELLING BY DOING WATERFALLS AND MAKING THE PRICE LOOK HOPELESS!!

----------------------------------------------

- 41% of the Entire Free Float on this stock right now is lent out and shorted. (For reference, anything over 10% is high. )

- Utilization is 100% since March 8th

- CTB is skyrocketing and so are the FTDs.

https://preview.redd.it/6b9zgr2ng6t81.png?width=1189&format=png&auto=webp&s=1aa9c78b11d78f4ce9ec06d59e380ad15a736a4e

FTD's (Failure To Deliver)This just means that one party in a trade has failed to deliver their agreed portion.

-When you buy a stock with your broker. They actually place an IOU into your account that looks your shares but they usually don't get them right away. They didn't go to the market instantly to buy them. In fact most of the time Retails trades never hit any LIT exchange. 90% to 95% of all retail trades never see the light of any exchange. So these share you are buying, they don't actually help buying pressure the day you are buying them. They only are good for making them deal with problems down the line when they hope they can scare you out into selling your position. The Brokers have T + 3 to locate some shares for you.

If they do not find you the shares, they become a FTD.

------------------------------------------------

- Shorts are supposed to locate shares before they short them. If they do not locate those shares, then that is called a Naked Short. Those shares get instantly sold onto the market but those shorting it never found shares, and often cant locate shares when they are reviewed.

So if they can't locate the shares they naked sold, they become FTDs.

There is are other things but I'm not here to give a lesson on this.

Remember our Free Float is 25 million shares. And they have been doing this over the last 7 trading days.

https://preview.redd.it/3t7r6cvog6t81.jpg?width=1205&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=920a527644c390c25bccd8578c08cdfa5b1d54fd

This is showing you that they have been shorting over 50% of the float everyday for MONTHS. Yesterday the MM tried to help the shorts by using 701k Short Exempts to keep the price suppressed.

There are Millions of shares being shorted each day that there is no mathematical way you could have a stock with 100% Utilization for over 1 month with daily volumes this big.

Today's Short Exempts might be even bigger.

https://preview.redd.it/i0mmkvksg6t81.jpg?width=835&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e98dbed5c64100609c6483fc76a2fbb2bfaa6ad2

These Options Chains are insane. Look how many Call options are In The Money at $5 over just 2 weeks.....these doesn't include the LEAPS, the Mays the Junes etc.

Just two weeks and that's sold more shares on the Options Chains than are available. Those 25 Million Free Float were already owned by Retail (We know that from the 100% Utilization BEFORE we even ran up)

100% Utilization Since March 8th which was over 1 month ago.

Shorts still have not covered. You all mocked the DD but I urge you to read it with open eyes. Shorts have not covered yet and all this was just options activity from a gamma run.

The Price still doesn't matter. They don't have your shares if you make them give them to you. It's Mathematically impossible for them to have all the shares they sold you.

Shorts haven't covered. I'll jump on a Live Stream on my YouTube after I put my kids to be to start researching all todays numbers.

Alright listen up you greasy traders

On this Sub I called Redbox early, I called MULN early, DM etc. the list goes on. Check my track record yourself.

There's an opportunity coming bigger than the one with DWAC back in Oct

From what the CEO has said on national TV, ~near/before end of this month Truthsocial (AKA DWAC Pump Machine) is getting web access (meaning anyone can just go to the website, no more US apple only or whatever). This is probably going to flood the platform with tons of people that are all going to be pumping this same ticker.

This thing is loaded with gamma ramp and short interest (also bunch of FTDs) that is going to get ugly on the small float

The media is lying about all of the FUD you've heard on this play for their own benefits, but it is to your benefit to not give af and make this about the trade

$DWAC - I've done the DD and the fundamentals are in the thousands long term

I've extrapolated the growth and this thing (DWAC) and rumble (CFVI) is growing faster than Tik Tok (500B marketcap)

Elon is working against TWTR I've got all of the DD you could ever want on that too. Just look at that mayhem unfold. The paypal mafia is working with Rumble confirmed (Thiel) and Musk , and probably also this.

Wrestle mania got 2.2B impressions, that's more than the super bowl folks. And it ain't just Truth social, it's TMTG. Netflix competitor, search engine competitor, news competitor etc. etc. even the stock could be a 100 bagger long term. Truth social got 1.5B views in the first 24 hrs and has been #1 in the app store for many days running at many times (despite being US only for the time being handicapped) . Elon has mentioned it on Twitter etc. bunch of other very high profile names and politicians all with the midterms coming up.

This small float is about to get obliterated by the Trump Pump come Truthsocial web access imo (AKA DWAC Pump Machine)

I'm scratching the surface here without getting into the details because I know people don't read my long DD's as much

But it's coming

$DWAC

I've got calls (maybe recommend otm's a month or two out), warrants, and shares

Tune out the hate and noise

155 Upvotes

The ATER Royal Flush - Did we lose any of our cards?

For some reason, people seem to be freaking out over earnings, as far as I'm aware, earnings was never part of the play.

Is Ater's free float still a small 26 million? - YES

Is SI% Still high? - YES

Is the CTB Ater shares still sky high? - YES

Are we still at 100% Utilization like we have been since March 8th? - YES

Every number is against the shorts.

Is ATER still on the Reg SHO Threshold and has it been for over 20 days straight? - YES

SEC - Do your damn job! Illegal Naked short selling has been going on for far too long in this stock. This list SHOULD mean shorts have to locate and close after 5 days, we have been on it for 21 straight!

Are the FTD's still sky high? Were there over 2.4 million of them on days in the 1st half of April and do we expect to see an even higher number of them for the 2nd half of April when the figures are released on the 16th of this month? - YES

Highest number of FTD's for September's run to $19 - 800k. Highest number of FTD's for 1st half of April's run to $6.50 - 2.5 Million... Hmmm...

Is the May 20th Options chain still stacked? - YES

Do you really, seriously, think they have the shares available to deliver if these options go ITM? No. So where will they get them from? Only place they can get the shares is from us, but how much do we want to sell them for?

These things are what the squeeze is, and always has been based off of. Not earnings. We have lost NONE of our cards.

All the public data we have is bringing us to the conclusion that they have sold more shares of ATER than are available, over 1.2 billion shares traded on a small 26 million free float since it's been at 100% utilization is more than just a bit fishy.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All that above should be all you need to know, but, regarding earnings:

People have kept saying this past month:

"Why aren't shorts just covering/closing now?"

"The CTB is so high they are losing money every day they short us and don't close"

"Why don't they get out at a lower price and let us run?"

Well, this is why, because they knew earnings was coming up, and they knew it wouldn't be great, just as all of us who have been in ATER since the last earnings did, the CEO literally told us last ER in the conference call that this earnings wouldn't be great due to the shipping crisis - all the Ater og's knew this was coming because we were told months ago, it's only the new gATER's and shills who seem to be shook by this.

And the shorts knew they would be, so they have been taking massive losses up until this point and they are now trying to capitalize on the FUD to get out of the complete mess they are in, this is their LAST SHOT, they are putting everything into getting YOU out of Ater so they can clean up THEIR mess on the cheap, but the truth is, if this doesn't work out for them and people are still buying and holding, then they are still in exactly the same position...SCREWED!

Although Earnings is irrelevant to the play, we have seen many shills try to skew it to make it seem worse than it actually was.

Let's not forget even the biggest players in the e-commerce game have been down this earnings:

AMAZON

SHOPIFY

ATER

Oh? So ATER met even though the big boys missed... Yeah. (Some reports have even now been updated to say we beat by 23.59% and reported -0.13)

Now I know EPS isn't the be all end all, and we can't sugar coat that revenue was down, but it was an industry wide issue that isn't specific to Ater and is in large parts due to the shipping crisis.

Personally, I was more interested in ATER's forward looking statements, because the shipping crisis will pass eventually.

So here are the main points I came away with from what was said by ATER in the statement and conference call:

  • They are sitting on 44 Mil cash
  • They are very confident they have the books to get through any potential periods of downturn
  • They are preparing to grow by adding more brands to their portfolio, they have been looking into some potential companies but are holding off on purchases until company valuations have decreased - ( This is a very smart move from ATER, because online sales were very high through covid, it has inflated the valuation of many companies, now we are seeing a downturn, it's actually good for Ater because they can capitalise on this by purchasing companies for a much better price.)
  • They are actively looking into shipping to Europe
  • They said that the downturn in e-commerce sales in a general sense amongst all retailers is actually a good thing for them because: less sales = less shipping demand = lower shipping costs = higher profits.
  • They have hired a 3rd party to look into the naked short selling and have now sent "multiple letters to wall street firms" (I'm sure plenty of evidence will be piling up from April)

Shorts love to spread FUD and cause panic after ER, but this was never an earnings play, earnings had nothing to do with why anyone who wants a short squeeze got in to ATER, every reason and every number remains unchanged, which is why my conviction in the play also remains unchanged.

With shares going this cheap (under book value), smart holders are going to be picking up an absolute ton of them. Shorts were banking on this being their get out clause, but I honestly think they underestimated our conviction, we all know what's behind the curtain, the shorts are in trouble.

DD BBAI - moved up 444 places to #2 on fintel's short squeeze list, #2 on the gamma squeeze list - entire float should be ITM if SP crosses $10 and float is ~80% shorted, this thing is a powder keg that is primed to explode

Hey y’all, bringing some attention to a play that I think has one of the better setups that I’ve seen in a while. It is the fourth time I’m playing it but the circumstances make it one of the most primed setups I’ve seen in a while so I’ve done a sort of TL;DR for the setup itself. For a more in-depth post into the circumstances including the bear case, please refer to this earlier post I’d made (can be found on my profile as unable to link here) – there is also a pending S-1 that could go into effect that would also result in an increased float, as this play is most primed for May’s OPEX in a couple of days it is unlikely though still possible this could occur in the meantime.

Before I go into the details, please note that nothing in this post should be considered financial advice so please don’t treat it as such – do your own due diligence, read the news to understand the macroeconomic environment and the Company’s position in the industry, study their financials as well as reading what others are saying/reviewing to help you make an informed decision before making any investment if you choose to do so.

BigBear.ai helps governments and businesses make the decisions that change markets and define outcomes with AI that’s smart, composable and enterprise-ready. They’ve been a leader in decision dominance for more than 20 years, operationalizing artificial intelligence and machine learning at scale through its end-to-end data analytics platform. The Company uses its proprietary AI/ML technology to support its customers’ decision-making processes and deliver practical solutions that work in complex, realistic and imperfect data environments.

The Company has 135,566,227 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of April 1, 2022. Of these shares, 11,001,307 public shares were freely tradable without restriction or further registration under the Securities Act. Due to a relatively unique circumstance in which the Company into a series of Forward Share Purchase Agreements with certain investors, then terminated those agreements and repurchased 9,952,803 shares of their Common Stock pursuant to several of their Forward Share Purchase Agreements, the tradable float has been left at 1,048,504. In their own words 'as a result of these repurchases, the amount of Common Stock trading freely on NYSE may be reduced, which could have a material effect on the liquidity of our Common Stock.'

Current SI is at 783.77k so ‘just’ ~80% of the tradable float. The Cost to Borrow is also at an astronomical ~742% link with only 52 shares left to borrow and has been there for a while, indicating there’s a significant lack of shares to go around. As per fintel, BBAI moved up 444 spots today on their shortsqueeze list to number 2, link which is the first time BBAI has made it this high on the shortsqueeze list, while also being number 2 on their gamma squeeze list link which isn’t a setup I’ve come across before and really highlights how poised this setup is for a breakout imo.

The 5/20 option chain is ridiculously loaded as well, here’s a link to the chain from a few minutes ago link. To put some of the numbers into perspective, the entire float should essentially be ITM if the share price crosses 10, the 12.5c also has ~120% of the entire float sitting on its strike, and the 15c has ~240% of the float sitting on its strike, with virtually no hedging of the 12.5c or 15c currently, if they go ITM and MM’s elect to hedge, or shorts/naked call sellers start covering, we could see some pretty rapid price action pretty fast.

Just want to re-iterate that there’s no such thing as a free lunch though so the play could get stuffed as that $10 is a pretty big line in the sand that a lot of folks would not want to have crossed, due to the size of the float the SP also swings pretty wildly on relatively small volume – meaning if the train starts going over $10 it could be pretty hard to stop but on the flipside it could also be held down on pretty low volume as well.
