Back on September 7, I filmed this video which focuses on Aggressive Growth stocks. You can access the video on this page (https://www.zacks.com/stock/news/275015/petmed-express-and-crox-are-aggressive-growth-rank-buys) and also hear about CROX as well.
I should note that I made it my Top Stock Pick of the Week (https://www.zacks.com/stock/news/291540/top-stock-picks-for-the-week-of-february-5th) so be sure to watch that video too!
The stock is a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) because earnings estimates have moved higher. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2018 has moved from $1.61 to $1.70. over the last sixty days.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2019 also increased over the same time period. The number moved from $1.67 to $1.94.
There is a huge short interest in this stock. That means that investors believe that the stock will move lower and they have borrowed shares, sold them and hope to buy them back lower. Thing is, the short is not working. The site ShortSqueeze.com shows that the float is 27% short... and that is a huge amount of shorts.
As fundamentals continue to improve, the shorts are more likely to cover their bets and take a loss. This is could be a classic short squeeze.
