Short Squeeze Candidates to Watch

When a highly shorted stock climbs in value instead of decreasing, this is known as a short squeeze. Short sellers may be aiming to close off their positions, but they may incur a loss if they are forced to purchase back the shares they borrowed at a higher price. When short sellers are obliged to buy to cover their positions, a squeeze can occur, causing shares to surge higher on numerous occasions.
