    Short Squeeze In The Cards?

    Looks like all the elements are in place for a short squeeze of considerable magnitude.

    • That would be nice, but I don't see anything in the short interest numbers to suggest a squeeze. I suppose just a quick increase in price could make some shorts uncomfortable, but most of the short position in these mid caps is from short funds and etf's that still need to keep their short positions. Here is a record of the short interest in ACO over the last few years. It's been pretty steady at about 10% of float.
