Top 4 Stocks With The Highest Ratio Of Short Sell Volume In 2017

Top 4 Stocks With The Highest Ratio Of Short Sell Volume In 2017

In investing terms, longing a stock essentially means buying a stock, with the hopes of it become higher to make a profit. The opposite can be said for shorting a stock which means selling a stock with the expectation of the price can become lower.

However, longing a stock isn’t the only way to make a profit.

Short selling too, can achieve the same purpose.

A brief explanation of short selling:

Short selling essentially means you borrow a stock, with the expectation to buy it back at a lower price in order to make a profit. The profit is realized when the stock is bought back at a lower price and returned. Borrowing of stock occurs through brokerages.

In terms of transaction volume, there is also short sell volume. Short sell volume of a stock is the total number of shares short sold in the entire market during a given period of time. This does not include any CFD shorts.
