Company Description

Why We Like It:
SKUL makes headgear and audio accessories (a.k.a. earphones). The stock broke down under major support near $12.00 early in November. The sell-off accelerated following a disappointing earnings report and lowered earnings guidance. Yet now it looks like SKUL may have found a bottom. The stock could see a short squeeze. The most recent data listed short interest at 42% of the very small 15.6 million-share float.

Aggressive traders could launch positions now. I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $9.05. If triggered I am setting our multi-week target at $11.50.

Trigger @ 9.05

Suggested Position: buy SKUL stock @ (trigger)
