Beyond Meat - The Vegan Short Squeeze

NASDAQ:BYND   Beyond Meat, Inc
If looking at last year's POC of BYND , you can notice we have been oscillating above and below that $15 range since September 2022. BYND has been in this slightly sloping downward/sideways channel with the most recent low being the bottom of the value range, building a nice base for a move higher.

In recent days I've noticed some unusual options activity in a handful of highly shorted names and this is one of them.

Paired with bullish bets on these names with some sizeable money, overall indices this week finished on a strong close going into next week.

Above this $17.00 level on BYND is a volume gap where significantly less volume has traded as only 4 days moved it through this zone last year. These voids can sometimes fill rather quickly when price starts moving back through them. In conjunction with this, LBR MACD has a first cross which can be a long buying opportunity, with an RSI that has recently cooled off from overbought.

Today I opened a long BYND position. This is in anticipation that we test the upper part of the channel again as well as that $17 area, possibly getting into the gap. Mix in the fact that this stock has a float nearly 40% short, with earnings a month away; there could be a short squeeze over the next few weeks in this one.
