3 Stocks Ready for the Short Squeeze



August 16, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CCBG , ATLC , KNSY.DL

Below are the charts of small-cap stocks that have been heavily shorted by the street, and should the market continue to rally like we have seen over the last few days, these stocks could see their  share price launch into the stratosphere because of the bears being forced to cover their short positions in the stock. Based on the number of shares that are being borrowed, for some of the stocks, it could take as many as 50-70 days to cover all the shares held short in the individual stock.

If you don't know what a short squeeze is, that is where a stock starts to rise rapidly, and as the trend continues to escalate, the short sellers will likely want out. For example, say a stock rises 5% in one day, those with short positions may be forced to liquidate and cover their position by purchasing the stock. If enough short sellers buy back the stock, the price is pushed even higher.
