Faraday Future (NASDAQ:FFIE) stock is rising higher on Tuesday as investors wonder whether a massive short squeeze is coming for the electric vehicle (EV) company’s shares.

Investors will note that FFIE’s short interest is sitting at 36.34 million shares. That represents 95.33% of the company’s float. This makes it a prime target for a short squeeze.

One reason the rise could be happening is the recent meme stock rally. This has several shares that were short squeezed in 2021 taking off recently. This is thanks to the return of Roaring Kitty, who started the prior meme rally in 2021. FFIE may be a new target that could get caught up in all of the action.

Faraday Future has also had a rough time of it lately, which has been weighing shares. This has sparked the short interest in the stock and could also be what draws meme traders to FFIE. Pushing out shorts became a concentrated effort for these types of traders back in 2021.
