The current short interest as a percentage of the float for Sourcefire is extremely high at 22.3%. From a technical standpoint, FIRE is very close to triggering a major breakout if the stock can manage to sustain a high-volume move and close above $34.74 to $35.27. At last check, the stock has already registered above average volume, so look for a close either today or next week above those levels, and also above today's high of $35.90. If we see that action soon, then look for a big short-squeeze to develop since this name is so heavily shorted.
