This decade marks the beginning of a divergence in investment strategies. Sure, there are the typical long-term investors looking for stable growth. And yes, there are the short sellers who seeks to make gains from a company’s failure. But, short-squeeze investing is one of the fastest-growing strategies for retail traders looking to make a buck. These investors are constantly seeking out the next short squeeze — looking for low volume, low market capitalization, high short interest. Liquid Media Group (NASDAQ:YVR) offers investors just that. And these investors have taken notice; YVR stock is seeing huge gains today from concentrated buying.
Liquid Media Group is a Canadian company that helps content creators carry out their visions from ideation to execution. The company seeks to be an all-in-one package for creators across the media, entertainment and gaming industries. Furthermore, Liquid provides data analytics, financing, production services and monetization assistance, among many other more specific services for in-between steps.
Recently, the company is taking pains to further expand its business model. CEO Ronald Thomson notes the increased consumption of content from the coronavirus pandemic as ushering in a new need to keep up with demand. In doing this, Liquid Media is acquiring a number of media companies like Indieflix and Filmocracy.
YVR Stock Gains as Short-Squeeze Play
Liquid Media has a very robust vision for its future, but it seems like short sellers don’t see things eye-to-eye. In fact, short interest on the stock is very high, as institutions see economic reopening as a heel to Liquid Media’s expansive shift. As such, the short volume ratio of YVR stock is high, at 32.45%.
The high short volume of YVR stock is incentivizing a short squeeze among retail traders today. With a low trading volume of 2 million shares per day, and a very small market cap of just $35.6 million, the essentials for a price rocket are there. Buyers are flocking en masse to YVR today, as evidenced by the stock’s massive trading volume of 115 million. The results are assuredly quite pleasing; YVR is up by nearly 50% on the day’s session.
