Short squeezes have been all the rage this year after what happened with GameStop. Some colleagues are referring to it as the short squeeze of the century.
And there’s no doubt about that. And because of it, many people want to know how to squeeze short sellers.
I’m excited about how popular and news-worthy this event has been because it’s brought this type of investing to the forefront. Most people just don’t know that there are so many stocks out there with huge potential for a squeeze — IF you know where to look and can get in before it happens.
After more than two decades on Wall Street, I know exactly where to look, and I’m highlighting these trades in my new Infinity Profit Plays service. I’m talking about buying the underlying stock and even call options, which are both simple to do.
So how do you squeeze short sellers? First… Let’s discuss exactly what a short squeeze is, for the uninitiated.
A short squeeze happens when you have a lot of people, bigwig Wall Street firms and hedge funds, that are short a stock.
To sell a stock short, you have to borrow shares you then sell in hopes that the price falls. And in order to exit your short position, you have to buy the stock back.
When you short a stock, the best thing that can happen is it goes down. And the closer to $0, the better.
And of course, when you buy a stock, the best thing that can happen is it goes up, and goes up a lot. Theoretically, there is no limit to how high a stock can go… Hence the name Infinity Profit Plays.
There are two things that have to happen to trigger an alert in Infinity Profit Plays.
When these criteria are met, I send you a text and email alert with entry and exit points. Of course, I also send you alerts on when to exit, and that’s how we squeeze short sellers. It’s that simple…
So in today’s video, I’m going to discuss three stocks that have high short interest and could be targeted as a potential squeeze play.
The first stock on this week’s list is Revlon Inc. (NYSE: REV). Revlon had been falling for quite a long time. All of a sudden, in November 2020, it began. It shot up from around $4 a share to more than $20 as the shorts got squeezed. After going parabolic, or straight up, the stock came back down to digest that huge move, which is natural.
Since then, it’s been in consolidation and building a new base. And the squeeze could happen again, sending it back to $20, $30, $50… and beyond.
