A list of the current most shorted stocks right now can be a great place to look for potential deep-dip value buys, says Steve Burns of New Trader U.

The stocks with the highest short interest on major US stock exchanges are also a good list to watch and stay updated on for potential short squeeze opportunities.

Highest Short Interest Stocks 2022

The below company stocks have the highest percentage of their share float borrowed to sell short. These short interest levels show built-in future buying pressure as the shares short must eventually be bought back to cover.

Short Squeeze Stocks

These stocks are the ones with the highest probability of short squeezes after the bears have overstayed their welcome. Short sellers that failed to lock in their profit late in a high short interest stock can get a big upside surprise with any bullish news event that brings hope back for the stock to go higher. Selling short goes against the long-term trend in the stock market and stocks getting on the list of most shorted stocks can be bullish for a stock signaling it is about to rally higher.
