Below is a list of the current most shorted stocks with the highest short interest as of the last update across all stock exchanges. Most exchanges do month end reporting. So it is constantly changing but is delayed in reporting. Be aware that the NASDAQ short interest is updated twice a month. Short interest data is reported on mid-month and end-of-month settlement dates for NASDAQ listed stocks.

These are the companies that have had the highest percentage of their share float borrowed to sell short over the past month. These short positions reveal built in buying in the future as the short stock positions must be bought back at some point to cover. These stocks are the ones with the highest probability of short squeezes or gamma squeezes when the bears have overstayed their welcome and the chart rallies too far and too fast causing them to need to cover. Selling short goes against the long term trend in the overall stock market and getting on the most shorted stock list can be a bullish signal for a stock signaling it could finally be near a bottom and has the potential to rally higher.
