VACCINE PLAY - VALUE - SHORT RAID - XpresSpa Group $XSPA

Long
NASDAQ:XSPA   XpresSpa Group, Inc
I have been noticing that many promising companies that are likely to do very well in the case of a re-opening of the economy and a value rotation are being suppressed via short-selling pressure, while being accumulated. IMO, the rotation is about to happen.

The House just passed $1.9T Stimulus.

I have a good feeling that institutional bears will have a hard time indeed defending short positions next 1-2 weeks.

FA:
- Health and wellness company:

"leading global health and wellness holding company. XpresSpa Group’s core asset, XpresSpa, is a leading airport retailer of spa services and related health and wellness products, with 45 locations in 23 airports globally. Through its XpresTest, Inc. subsidiary, the Company provides COVID-19 screening and testing under the XpresCheck™ brand at eight locations in six airports: Denver International Airport, JFK International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport (2), Newark Liberty International Airport (2), Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and Salt Lake City International Airport." - Yahoo Finance

- Signed a contract with Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority for a pop-up facility for COVID-19 testing.
- Speculated government contract for COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
- Similar play to $ATOS, my previous idea for vaccine play.
- It is possible that COVID-19 will be endemic, and long-term medical services will be needed to deal with it.

TA:
- The support and trend is downwards to do price suppression via short-selling, but seems to have bottomed, and attempted to breakout over the median line .
- Elliot Wave's wave 4 can cross into wave 1 territory in such a trend. Likely to see some sort of diagonal, as short sellers attempt to defend their position during the raid.
- MACD confirms bottom and reversal, if not now then imminent.

QA:
- As of Feb. 8, 18M shares short, out of 69M shares float.
- 19% borrowing rate.
- Quite a high call OI on 3/19 options over $3 (50k~), 5M shares to be bought back. Gamma squeeze material.
- Shorts already covering, uptrend is imminent:
