10 Short Squeezes

Description:

This portfolio consists of stocks with high short-interest ratios, or short interest relative to average trading volume. The higher a stock's short-interest ratio, the higher its share price tends to jump during a squeeze. This screen also looks for companies with high insider buying, indicating confidence in the company's stock from those closest to it. Here are 10 stocks that could get short squeezed.

Note: Both PWEI (which has recently been acquired) and TELK (in which Carl Icahn recently took a 10% stake) were on the Short Squeeze list.
