One of the most notoriously shorted stocks – Tesla (TSLA) – clearly does not make an appearance on this month’s list. That’s because it currently falls significantly lower than our featured stocks in terms of short interest – only 20.40%. But that’s still a lot of short selling.

One standout on the list is clearly Match Group (owner of Match.com and Tinder). This company also featured on our list for last month (January 2019). And back then, just like this month, it was also the highest performer in the group, by far. Sometimes, short sellers get it wrong – very wrong.

Why do people hate Tesla so? They make great vehicles. The best I've ever seen. Sure they have some tough financials, but they'll get past that. You can't discount customer loyalty. In fact it reminds me of Apple back in the day.
