    As we mentioned, short-sellers seem to think these rallies will reverse, but the inevitable short-covering might push these stocks even higher. It's a screen that you can use as a starting point for your own analysis...

  • 11 Rallying Stocks With Improving Analyst Sentiment [View article]
    Hi CramerFactor

    Thanks again for your comments.

    We sourced the data directly from Reuters. They have a public version of the analyst data on their site:

    As you can see, there were two analysts covering the stock three months ago, both with "outperform" ratings. Recently, one of those analysts upgraded the stock to "Buy" (i.e. an improvement in analyst sentiment).

    The Reuters data do not list the firms involved in the research reports, nor do they list whether analysts are independent.

    Our screen was meant to pick up improving analyst sentiment, not to detect potential shortcomings of sell-side research.

    The fact remains that HUSA is in rally mode, so the rest of the market don't seem too concerned about the company.

    That said, we are going to refine the analyst rating screen for future articles. Going forward, we'll only include stocks that have at least 5 analysts covering the company. Hopefully that will avoid these types of situations from occurring again...

  • 20 Stocks With Attractive Valuations Approaching an Inflection Point [View article]
    That is correct. But a high short ratio does not necessarily mean there's more upside to a stock...there is often a very good reason why those stocks are being shorted.

    Try googling phrases like "short squeeze" or "short ratio" to read more.

    Hope that helps.
