Stocks often run after dilution due to opportunistic investors taking advantage of a stock’s low PPS. A possible instance of this phenomenon is Innovative Eyewear, Inc. (NASDAQ: LUCY). Currently, LUCY is in the midst of an offering which has caused the stock to plummet 38%. That said, the stock’s current PPS is lower than the offering price which could see LUCY stock rebound once the offering closes on June 26. With this in mind, LUCY is a prime short squeeze candidate this week with its high short interest rate. For this reason, LUCY stock is one to watch closely this week in anticipation of a rebound to pre-offering levels.
LUCY Stock News
As things stand, LUCY’s ongoing offering is expected to close on June 26 which could result in a major stock run. The offering consists of 4.5 million shares worth $1.05 per share which in turn adds up to $4.725 million. Currently, the stock is trading below the offering price at $.93 which indicates that the stock may have a post offering pump to better reflect its value. Low PPS aside, two other compounding factors that might contribute to a potential run are LUCY’s history and its swelling short data.
The history of a stock can sometimes be a great indicator of potential runs. For example, LUCY stock has experienced two +190% runs after the stock tested its $1.37 support. One of which occurred in February when the stock ran 192% after testing its $1.37 support and the other occurred in April and resulted in a 300% run after the retest. Based on this, investors could be inclined to buy shares of LUCY near the current support to capitalize on a potential similar run.
A short squeeze might be on the horizon for LUCY stock seeing that its potential post offering pump might cause a $1.37 support retest that could cause the stock to surge. It is currently experiencing accumulating short data which is extremely opportune given the timing. LUCY’s short interest is at 37% due to a 1250.9% rise this week, and its free float on loan is at 28% due to a 642.33% rise this week. Additionally, its utilization is at 91.1% and its cost to borrow is at 306%. That said, its short sellers might get squeezed due to mass buying when the offering ends on the 26th, especially since investors might expect the stock to echo its previous runs.
