  • Stocks with the largest increase in utilization rate 0 comments
    Mar 17, 2011 1:57 PM | about stocks: USAT, TLR, CLDA, GSI, DBLE, TCI, ROIC, BT

    The utilization rate is the number of shares borrowed divided by the number of shares that institutional investors are willing to lend.  A higher rate indicates that more of the supply of shares in the securities lending market is being borrowed.  A higher utilization rate also increases the likelihood that short sellers could face a buy-in if investors recall their loaned shares.

    Below is a list of the stocks that showed the largest increase in utilization rate over the last week.  An increase of 100% indicates that last week 0% of institutional investors' supply was borrowed, and this week, every single share is out on loan.  (Note that there could be other shares available to borrow that are not being reported to Short Side, since Short Side only captures two-thirds of the institutional lending market.)
