    When I look at JNJ's metrics I don't see a shorting opportunity - I see an undervalued company with a 3.6% yield.

    What kind of brain dead article is this? Number shares shorted alone never makes any sense, unless taken into context as percentage of total.

     

    JNJ has 1.4% of its shares shorted, a tiny fraction, and this article is calling it the most heavily shorted stock? Gimme a break!
