Here is a top 20 list of the highest current NASDAQ short interest in February 2021 based on most recent information available as of January 29, 2021. 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. 

These are the companies 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 at some point to cover. These NASDAQ stocks are the ones in the highest danger of short squeezes or gamma squeezes as the bears may have overstayed their welcome. This list of stocks show that bears appear to have failed to lock in their profit and appear to be waiting for a low price that may never 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.
