On Aug. 10, we sent a short-squeeze setup alert to our members for Hut 8 Mining Corp. As it turns out, some short covering may have been behind the stock’s subsequent rally, which is up more than 60 per cent since our alert. After such a rally, we are on the lookout to see if company officers or directors are taking profits. In the case of Hut 8, we have seen just the opposite. On Sept. 2, director Jeremy Sewell acquired 184,977 common shares at $11.20.
