Baird analyst Brian Skorney weighs in on the Sarepta (SRPT +1.4%) debate today, saying that management is firm on its guidance for a breakthrough designation on Eteplirsen. Skorney notes that SRPT will be deciding on its strategy within the few months. Traders aren't so sure however, as short interest has gone from a low of 1.4% in July 2012, up to 33.5% through the middle of this month, while the average days to cover has jumped to over 10.

    SRPT. There is very little stock available to buy.
    Anyone short will have a real problem trying to buy any volume.
    If there are 9 million shares short then this is going be a
    phenomenal squeeze at some point.
    It is thinly traded around a million shares a day.
    Covering will probably drive it over $60 imo.

    If you understand the science first, then the politics, then this is one stock that would never be shorted.
