Here is the top 20 list of the current 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 or even sold naked with no borrowed shares over the past month. These short positions reveal built in future buying pressure as the shares short must be bought back at some point 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 getting on the most shorted stock list can be bullish for a stock signaling it is about to rally higher after reaching the highest level of short interest in the entire market.
