DragonWave, Inc. (DRWI) Has a Rare Day in the Sun

DragonWave, Inc. (USA) (NASDAQ:DRWI) is exploding today, but it's struggled mightily longer term

It's been a huge day for DragonWave, Inc. (USA) (NASDAQ:DRWI). The wireless equipment maker has seen its stock soar over 36% to trade at $3.33, amid the launch of its e-commerce store and a newly announced partnership with Mitel Networks Corp (NASDAQ:MITL). In fact, at its intraday peak, DRWI was over 80% higher.

Short sellers are likely breathing a big sigh of relief. During the most recent reporting period, short interest on DRWI plummeted 42.4%. Now, just 0.6% of the stock's float is sold short, which would take less than one session to cover, at average trading levels.

Elsewhere on Wall Street, analysts have extremely high hopes for DRWI. The stock's consensus 12-month price target sits at $15.15 -- territory not charted since June, and more than four times current levels.

While DragonWave, Inc.'s (USA) (NASDAQ:DRWI) bullish gap is impressive, it must be taken in context. On a long-term basis, the stock has been an absolute disaster. For example, this time last year, DRWI was trading near $14. Should the shares resume their longer-term trend lower, a round of short selling and/or price-target cuts could exacerbate pressure.
