Tech stock Pinterest Inc (NYSE:PINS) looks promising right now. The equity just broke out above a downtrend line connecting higher highs. A subsequent pullback also found support near this area, keeping PINS at a 12% lead for the year.

Analysts still aren’t convinced, which could spark some tailwind-inducing upgrades going forward. Of the 17 in coverage, just seven call the stock a “buy” or better, while the remaining 10 say “hold.”

And while shorts have started to jump ship, down 25.9% in the last two reporting periods, the 16.61 million shares sold short still represent a whopping 19.3% of PINS’ available float, which could result in a short squeeze, should more bears begin to hit the exits.

It is also worth noting that Pinterest stock sports a Schaeffer’s Volatility Scorecard (SVS) of 78. This means PINS has tended to exceed option traders’ volatility expectations during the past year. What’s more, our recommended call option has a leverage ratio of 4.04 and will double in a 24.5% pop in the underlying stock.
