  • Possible Short-Squeeze Candidates 0 comments

    Here are stocks chosen as possible short squeeze candidates for today.
    I ranked the top 50 based on the product of their short ratio and their today's relative volume. These are stocks with high short interest, which would take many days to clear at normal volume, and which are suddenly experiencing higher than normal volume. Note that this is not a recommendation list! There is something bad about all these stocks which caused them to become a target of extreme short selling in the first place.

    One more thing, I eliminated all stocks which are not optionable. So, I think these should all be optionable. I did not do any sorting based on eyeing the charts. So this is a fairly "raw" list. Let me know if you find anything exciting. I note that FTK appears on the list! That makes a lot of sense. I bought FTK today and it is flying fast.
