Mid-Cap Short-Squeeze Opportunities

Canadian sports apparel company Gildan Activewear (GIL) has seen a mind-blowing rally in the last 12 months, with shares rocketing 241%. But that hasn't stopped the short-sellers from taking stakes against shares; the company's short interest ratio currently sits at 17.9.

Gildan is one of the biggest apparel producers in North America. The company's extremely low-cost structure and deep business relationships with mega retailers such as Wal-Mart (WMT - Get Report) and Target (TGT - Get Report) give it significant advantages as it competes for hard-earned consumer dollars in the retail marketplace. As the company reaches out into more premium branding, it could see margins improve as a result.

One firm that's hoping so is Trafelet & Co., a New York-based hedge fund sponsor. Other Trafelet holdings include Consol Energy (CNX) and Brandywine Realty Trust (BDN).
