Altria has been a strong performer this year up 22% over the S&P 10%. It continues to be a strong buy on most analyst and investors radars. The stock has formed 2 bases in the last 6 months and each has resulted in a $5 move.
Well its coming out of a base again and it is in a prime positon to be a short squeeze candidate. The short interest ratio is at 6.6 the highest it has been in 2 years. If the stock continues on the same path its been on its could pop as shorts start to cover.
