REVIEWED: Performance of the AIM shares shorted as at the start of 2017

By ShareProphets | Tuesday 2 January 2018


 


Having earlier noted a return to form in the top shorted London-listed shares as at the start of 2017, how was the performance of the AIM shares then shorted?

Much more mixed - smartly ahead on aggregate and gaining more than the AIM All-Share and just slightly less than the AIM 100 (though the latter seems the fairer comparator of the two as a company tends to have to be large for an AIM company in order to be shortable). The significant fallers were Accrol Group (ACRL) and Telit Communications (TCM)...
