Here is an updated top 20 list of the highest current most shorted stocks in the NASDAQ with the highest short interest in the middle of March 2021 based on the most recent information available. 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. So it is constantly changing but is delayed in reporting so there is some lag time.

These are the stocks that have had the highest percentage of their share float borrowed to sell short. These short positions reveal built in future buying pressure as the short shares must be bought back to cover the short position at some point in the future. These NASDAQ stocks are the ones in the highest probability of short squeezes or gamma squeezes as the short sellers may at some point be pressured to buy the shares back due to a strong rally on the chart. This list of stocks show that bears appear to still be waiting for a lower price that may not happen. Selling short goes against the long term trend in the NASDAQ and getting on the most shorted stock list can be bullish for a stock signaling it is about to rally higher. This may be a list of stocks that sellers of the stock and short sellers could both be near an exhaustion point after heavy distribution.
