Benzinga - Potential short squeeze plays gained steam in 2021, continued throughout 2022, and remain a focus of new traders looking for the next huge move.

Here’s a look at the top five short squeeze candidates and several stocks to watch this week based on the Fintel short squeeze leaderboard.

  • Baosheng Media Group Holdings (NASDAQ: BAOS) tops the leaderboard for the week. Data shows 25.2% of the float short and a cost to borrow of 202.8%. Shares of the streaming marketing service provider are up 85% year-to-date in 2023.

The cost to borrow on shares is 20.3%, down from last week’s 22.3% reported. The stock previously topped the short squeeze leaderboard for several weeks in May and has made frequent appearances in the top 10.
  • Intuitive Machines (NASDAQ: LUNR) ranks third for the week, dropping one position on the leaderboard. Data shows 21.6% of the float short, down from last week’s 25.0% reported. The cost to borrow on shares is 235.7%, down from last week’s 266.5%.
