Top 10 shorted stocks

Top 10 shorted stocks

By Staff Journalist 27.03.2017


The technique of profiting from a price fall is called short-selling, otherwise known as “shorting,” “to go short” or simply “short”. Basically, short-selling is the reverse of how we’re traditionally taught to invest, to buy at the lowest possible price and sell at the highest. When shorting, you aim to jump in at a high and out at a low – with the sequence of events also in reverse, since you sell first and buy back afterwards. Indeed, as confusing as it sounds, this involves selling something that you don’t already own.

Each week we feature the top 10 shorted stocks on the ASX, compiled from data from ASIC. In the table below you will find the cumulative percentage of outstanding shorts for each stock. If you're interested in more information about each company, further down we have 1-year share price charts, plus links to more charting and news. For the daily short sales (shorts for that day only, rather than cumulative outstanding shorts), please click here.
