The bi-monthly short interest numbers were recently released, and below we highlight stocks with the biggest one-month increases and decreases in short interest as well as the stocks with the highest and lowest short interest as a percentage of float.  We also provide each stock's year to date percent change to show whether or not the shorts are winning or losing.  Over the last month, DLB, ATO, UNM and FWLT saw the biggest increases in short interest, but none of them currently have a high short interest as a percentage of float.  AIZ, FCS, ABI and GR saw the biggest one-month decreases in short interest.
