Amprius (NYSE:AMPX) stock is on the move Thursday as investors wonder if it could be the next big short squeeze.
Investors on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) are discussing the potential for a short squeeze of AMPX stock. While it’s possible this could happen, there are other reasons that could explain why shares of the company’s stock are up today.
For example, Amprius recently made its proper public debut last week after transitioning from a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC). It’s incredibly likely the stock will continue to be volatile following that change. Adding to that, the company’s leaders rang the opening bell for trading this morning.
However, investors have also noted a recent rise in the stock. That includes a rally yesterday despite a lack of news concerning the company. This could be an early sign of a short squeeze or simply volatility after its public debut.
One thing worth noting today is the daily average trading volume of AMPX stock. As of this writing, the battery company’s shares have traded more than 5 million units. That’s still below its daily average trading volume of nearly 8 million shares.
Investors looking for a short squeeze target will want to keep an eye on AMPX stock in the coming days. While shares are already up 13% as of Thursday morning, there could be room for further growth its a squeeze occurs.
