We’ve seen a rise in interest among various SPAC (special purpose acquisition company) plays of late. Indeed, much of this has to do with the much-anticipated merger of Digital World Acquisitions (NASDAQ:DWAC) and former President Donald Trump’s Truth Social platform.

However, companies like Altimeter growth with short interest levels around 35% are attractive in their own right. Besides the company’s pending upcoming merger, SPACs are now companies speculators are willing to bet will squeeze. And whether or not that takes place, short-term momentum can be a trader’s best friend.

Today, AGC stock has continued to move higher, up more than 3% at the time of writing. As of this week alone, AGC stock has appreciated approximately 30%. These sorts of short-term gains are what momentum investors are after.

That said, let’s take a look at a few things investors may want to know about Altimeter Growth.
