The challenging year continued for streaming giant Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) as the company announced cutting a further 300 employees.

Part of this plan includes the potential for adding advertising to the platform, something that it has recently been tied to Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) for. Shareholders seemed to be in favor of the moves as the stock closed the session higher by 1.58%.

Fellow meme stock AMC (NYSE:AMC) and its Apes have made a new enemy in the ongoing short squeeze saga. A hedge fund called AQR Capital Management publicly announced a new short position against AMC’s stock and also taunted retail traders. Cliff Asness of the hedge fund stated that he ‘dares all the meme stock maniacs to try to hurt us’. It’s a fairly small position of only 12 basis points, so Asness said he is not worried about the trade going against them. Shares of AMC closed lower by 4.37% during Thursday’s session.
