In stock trading, a "short squeeze" is when a stock goes up significantly in a short period of time due to short sellers covering their short positions. When traders take a short position, they have a negative share position. To close their position entirely, they need to buy back shares in the amount that they are negative. If this happens all at once with many short sellers, it will create lots of buying which is known as a short squeeze.

Would you rather receive $100 one year from now? Or would you want to receive it today? The correct answer of course is today. That's because money loses value over time due to inflation and the opportunity cost of investing it. Well, the point of DCF analysis is to forecast future free cash flows of an investment/company and then discount them back into the present in order to find out what the future money is worth today (present value). If the present value of the future free cash flows are greater than the current cost of the investment, then it is considered a good/undervalued investment.
