As a former short term shorter, I decided to go long for one VERY appealing reason:
Short Interest (Shares Short) 9,103,300 Days To Cover (Short Interest Ratio) 17.1 Short Percent of Float 9.69 % Short Interest - Prior 9,007,600 Short % Increase / Decrease 1.06 %
Volume has been VERY low lately. If earnings surprise to the positive side, your BIGGEST enemy will be your own fellow shorts scrambling for the exit. 10% of the float and 17 days to cover - a little gas thrown on this small fire COULD cause a massive inferno/short SQUEEZE. I suggest you buy calls at the very minimum. I am not overly bullish at this level on the fundamentals, but I am very muh so based on the very large short positions and very light volume.
It doesnt take much to get shorts to cover once a quick rise occurs and short covering intensifies and feeds on itself.
