Q3 2019 hedge fund letters, conferences and more

  1. Peloton Interactive (NASDAQ: PTON) with over 84% short interest % of float
  2. Gamestop Corp (NYSE: GME) with almost 80% short interest % of float
  3. Health Insurance Innovations (NASDAQ: HIIQ) with over 70% short interest % of float

The list includes twenty five stocks. All of which have a short interest % of float above 45%. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Besides their cost, some shorts are very crowded and difficult to get into. Most of these stocks are long-time shorts, but due to their high SI % of Float there is a very small chance that there will any significant amount of additional short selling in these stocks due to lack of stock loan supply. Any compelling downward price movement in these stocks will be due to long selling and not short selling. Peloton Interactive tops the list for the second week in a row with over 84% short interest % of Float. PTON SI % Float has been over 80% for three weeks as shares shorted have increased by 6.3 million shares, +23%, over the last month even though its stock price has risen +24%.

Short Interest as a % of Float: The total number of shares shorted divided by the company’s float. SI % of Float usually tops out at the 40% to 60% range due to lendability constraints.

The U.S. traded stocks with the highest Short Interest as a % of Float (minimum short interest $50 mm):
