Freeport-McMoran Copper & Gold Becomes #240 Most Shorted S&P 500 Component, Replacing Pepco Holdings
Metals Channel Staff - Wednesday, March 25, 3:55 PM

The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 03/13/2015 settlement date, and we here at Dividend Channel like to sift through this fresh data and order the underlying components of the S&P 500 by "days to cover." There are a number of ways to look at short data, for example the total number of shares short; but one metric that we find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares typically traded.
