Current Most Shorted Stocks 2021

Current Most Shorted Stocks 2021

Here is a list of the current top 25 most shorted stocks with the highest short interest across all major U.S. stock exchanges as of the last update. Be aware that the NASDAQ short interest is updated twice a month. Short interest data is reported on mid-month and end-of-month settlement dates for NASDAQ listed stocks. Most exchanges do month end reporting. So it is constantly changing but is delayed in reporting. 

These are the companies that have had the highest percentage of their share float borrowed to sell short over the past month. These short positions reveal built in future buying pressure as the shares short must be bought back at some point in the future to cover. These stocks are the ones in the highest danger of short squeezes as the bears may have overstayed their welcome. Bears failed to lock in their profit at oversold levels and 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 however a stock getting on the most shorted stock list can be bullish. The extreme short interest percentages a stock has to reach to get on this list could be signaling it is about to rally higher. The odds of massive rallies on stocks on this list have never been higher with all the bear raids being run this year from Reddit groups on so-called meme stocks.
