I also like to look at the short percent. After all, if a high portion of the float available for trading is shorted, the overall opinion among traders is that the stock is going to fall hard. As far as BB, the percentage of the float that is shorted is 4.10%. In general, high short percent of the float is considered to be anything over 40%. In my research, I have found that any short percent of the float over 26% is likely a risky play.
