Short sellers have been strengthening their bearish bets, with short interest up 2.9% in the last teo reporting periods, but a change of the wind could provide the setup for a short squeeze. Short interest makes up 7.6% of the stock's available float and would take over a week to cover at its average daily pace of trading. 

From a fundamental point of view, the equity has potential as a long-term growth play, and even more so at its current valuation. Although the software company is not profitable at this moment, WIX trades at a price-sales ratio of 6.73, which is attractive for a tech company with a proven high growth rate.

WIX has grown revenues 24% since fiscal 2020 and a jaw-dropping 188% since fiscal 2017. The firm has also delivered a $147.5 million increase in net income since reporting $165 million in net losses for fiscal 2020. The cloud-based software company has a manageable balance sheet with $1.03 billion in cash and $903 million in total debt, placing them in a good position for the coming years. Overall, Wix.Com stock's bearish run over the past year could potentially create a great buying opportunity for investors looking for strong growth potential.
