Why Sprint’s Current Valuation Matters Now

Bollinger Band and short interest ratio

In the July 3 trading session, Sprint stock closed at $8.15, which was closer to its Bollinger Band midrange of $8.20. This implies that Sprint’s stock is neither overbought nor oversold.

Sprint’s short interest ratio (or short interest as a percentage of float) on July 3, 2017, was ~7.4%. Generally, if a stock’s short interest ratio is above 40%, it implies that the investors can anticipate its price to decrease.
