Sunrun Inc (NASDAQ:RUN) reversed its significant pre-market gains, now flipping above and below breakeven, following the renewable energy name's earnings report. Investors are unpacking the company's raised its full-year guidance, after its mixed results detailed wider-than-expected first-quarter losses of 42 cents per share and a revenue beat. 

Analysts chimed in with varied sentiment. Susquehanna and Truist Securities raised their price targets to $45 and $54, respectively, while J.P. Morgan Securities cut its price objective to $50, and Piper Sandler slashed it's to $35. Currently, RUN's 12-month consensus price target of $47.51 represents a hefty 96.3% premium to current levels. 

At last glance, Sunrun stock was up 1.5% to trade at $24.70, extending its bounce off the $19 level -- a familiar line of support that just saw a small consolidation. Looking to secure its fourth-straight daily win, RUN is still down 40.4% year-over-year 

Meanwhile, options volume is running at triple the intraday average, with 4,013 calls and 1,537 puts exchanged so far today. The May 25 and 30 calls are the most popular by far. 

It's also worth noting that though short interest has begun to unwind, it still represents 14.4% of the stock's available float. At RUN's average pace of trading, it would take four days to buy back these bearish bets. For a stock that's up 22% in the last week, a short squeeze is definitely in play that could keep the wind at RUN's back in the short term.
