With NYSE short interest for October released recently, below we highlight the stocks in the Russell 1,000 with the highest and lowest short interest as a percentage of float.

As shown below, Indymac (IMB) has the highest at 54%, followed by G, NTRI, KBH, BIG and VMW (probably due to the short VMW/buy EMC trade). Stocks that are hardly short at all include KMB, GD, UNH and WYE.
