I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.


From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, at the start of the year we showed the ten top shorted London-listed shares HERE. The following updates, showing those with a current reported short position of +7%.

Of the start-of-the-year 10, eight remain in the top 10 and Sainsbury (SBRY) is at 12. Just Weir Group (WEIR) no longer features in the table (the shares now 6% higher). The two new entrants in the top 10 are NCC Group (NCC) and Marks & Spencer (MKS)...
