NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- E Commerce China Dangdang (DANG), the "Amazon" (AMZN) of China, extended its recent momentum Tuesday. The stock rose more than 11% to settle at $5.17 a share as traders bet that the the company will beat earnings estimates this Thursday.
As one of the most heavily-shorted names on the street, and as the hurdle for beating earnings estimates stays low, the stock has the potential to rally after the report on any bit of good news.
Tesla (TSLA) and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters ( GMCR ) are recent examples of high short-interest names that spiked much higher after solid earnings reports forced short sellers to cover their positions.
