  • Stocks with the largest increase in demand to short last week 0 comments
    Mar 21, 2011 9:20 AM | about stocks: CASB, CBPO, NYMX, VGR, CAGC, ABAT, MEOH, PCY, NAVB, QTWW, CCME, IXN, AVNR, ROME, SHZ, PABK, ATL, JHTXQ, ATLC, CONN, FMFC, EDUC, TCI, SOMX, FFHS, CFW

    Many of the names on the list below should be familiar because they've been expensive to borrow for a while now.  However, as they continue to increase in cost-to-borrow, this indicates that the demand to short these stocks continues to outpace the available supply of shares to borrow.  Short sellers must be careful with short positions in such crowded trades.
