Aphria, Inc. APHA
Yesterday morning in our premarket report, we said that the unusually high short interest in APHA was one of the factors playing into our decision to designate it as a bottom-watch play. The rebound we were looking for came instantaneously for us with APHA heating up, and the short squeeze was on.
From a low of 3.75, the stock cruised on up to a high of 5.59 for a daily burst amounting to 49% on considerable volume. We’ll be looking for APHA to continue to make up some of the ground it has lost over the past month.
MDC Partners, Inc. MDCA
Another stock we included as a bottom play yesterday, MDCA also experienced a solid performance on the day. It traded from a low of 2.57 on up to 3.29, for a moderate but respectable 28% gain.
It also factored in as the NASDAQ’s fourth largest gainer of the session. The run came to an end right around an area of previous resistance, so we’ll look for it to break that top in the sessions ahead.
