Wolfspeed Inc. (NYSE:WOLF) recently opened the world’s first, largest, and only silicon carbide wafer facility in New York. The semiconductor company is driving the industry transition from silicon to silicon carbide, a technology that has rabid demand in the electric vehicle (EV) and 5G markets. While WOLF’s market value has been cut in half from a peak at $16 billion to $8 billion, this value/price aligns with the highs of 2010, 2013, and 2019.

Wolfspeed stock, WOLF stock

Despite WOLF's market-leading technology, eight of 17 brokerages covering Wolfspeed stock still rate it a “hold” or “sell,” indicating Wolfspeed stock is ripe for upgrades that could vault it higher in the short term.

Short interest, meanwhile, has climbed over 32% in the past five months, and now accounts for a healthy 8.3% of the equity’s total available float. At Wolfspeed stock’s average pace of trading, it would take bearish bettors almost six days to buy back their bearish bets; an ample amount of buying power that could hit the market and fuel an unwind.
