Here is a list of the top 20 current most shorted stocks with the highest short interest as of the last update. Be aware most exchanges do month end reporting. So it is constantly changing but is delayed in reporting. Short interest data is reported on mid-month and end-of-month settlement dates for NASDAQ listed stocks. 

These are the companies that have had the highest percentage of their share float borrowed to sell short as of the reporting date. These short positions reveal built in future buying pressure as the short stocks must be bought back at some point to cover. These stocks are the ones in the highest danger of short squeezes and gamma squeezes as the bears may have overstayed their welcome. When bears fail to lock in their profit at extremely oversold price levels when short interest is over 30% they appear to be betting on a $0 price point that will likely never happen. Selling short goes against the long term trend in the stock market and getting on the most shorted stock list can be a bullish signal for a stock signaling it is about to rally higher.
