A Look at Short Interest
posted by The Traveller on Sunday, September 26, 2010

With all the chatter about short sellers attacking small cap Chinese stocks in recent weeks, it is probably a good idea to look at the actual short interest data from Nasdaq, Nyse and Amex. I don't have to explain much here, the numbers should speak for themselves.

Small-Cap China Stocks with the Highest Short Interest


China MediaExpress (CCME) is on a fast and steady rise to the top of this table. Short interest has increased from 900,878 (10.1% of float) on June 15, via 1,707,333 (19.2%) on July 15 and 2,467,724 (27.8%) on August 13, to a record 3,311,233 (37.3%) this month.
