  • Charts of several stocks with recent spikes in borrowing cost 0 comments
    Jun 7, 2011 10:47 AM


    The stocks below were on the list of "biggest changes", but I thought these charts showed interesting movements, specifically how quickly the cost-to-borrow increased.  An increase in cost-to-borrow indicates that short sellers are asking their prime brokers to short an ever-greater number of shares and/or the supply of shares is becoming constrained.  If long holders recall their loaned shares either because they want to squeeze the shorts or they want to sell their positions, it would put even greater pressure on borrowing costs and worst case scenario for shorts sellers is that they might have to buy in to close out their positions.
