In the latest report on shorted positions in HNW’s Guided Portfolios, we see no major changes; other than a decrease in the short interest in JBH:


The key themes in the below table:

  1. Overall level of shorts are not high;
  2. Where there is shorting, it is in the lithium sector;
  3. Very big short in PLS at 22% of the register. At 28 trading days or 5.6 weeks of volume to close out the trade. Though this pales into comparison with Boral where 14.6% of the register is short (Kerry Stokes owns 72%) and 55 days to close out the short position.
