Cash-Generating Short-Squeeze Opportunities
Industrial cable and wire distributor Anixter International (AXE) has been just barely underperforming the broad market in 2010, but that trend could soon change if the company can deliver decent fundamental performance in its next quarter. As of right now, Anixter's short interest ratio sits at 10.4.
Debt and commodity risks remain the biggest black clouds on the horizon for Anixter right now, but with limited competition, a recession resistant product, and improving financial numbers, investors should warm up to the firm as the year progresses. While a debt-induced liquidity shortage is a bit of a concern for the company right now, $13 in free cash flow considerably widens its turnover numbers and quells doubts. Still, black clouds are necessary for a strong short squeeze, so solid results should mean even bigger gains for investors who are currently long shares.
