Short can not buy shares in order to cover without raising the share price. Q3 profits are coming and AMD will preannounce the profits for Q3 when the Q2 earnings report is releases. Between now and the we will be seeing more analyst upgrades.
Here is what you will get.
95 million shares short + new buy + low volume = and explosive ride up.
The same thing happened many times in the past. IN 2009 AMD SHOT UP 440% IN UNDE A YEAR.
The bashers will bot be able to cover fast enough. The MM will let her take off.
It is not a matter of if this will happen, but when. Anything between now and then can set that off.
