$RUN Stocks Trading Idea
In the interest in staying with what has been working, Trade ideas technology is giving us a few contenders that look to push to new 52 week highs with the help of short sellers capitulating and creating yet another short squeeze in this market environment. Sunrun Inc. (RUN) has caught our eye as such a candidate from the “Squeeze Me” scan. – for the stocks trading idea of the week.
The suggested entry price of buying RUN is conditional of the stock trading above 7.35 this week.
RUN has earnings in 11 trading days and also a short float of 28%; meaning 28% of the stock holders might start buying their shares back if RUN trades too far above 7.35. This could potentially propel RUN higher over a few days of “short squeezing” the short sellers.
