Sporting goods retailer Cabela's (CAB - Get Report), one of TheStreet Ratings' top-rated specialty retail stocks, is another example of a stock with apparel exposure that's being heavily shorted right now. CAB's short interest ratio of 13.1 indicates that it would take nearly three weeks for shorts to cover. Growth has been slowly ticking higher for each of the last five years, and margins remain on the high end for a pure retail name.

While an aggressive acquisition strategy has increase the firm's total debt load considerably in the last couple of years, the strategy has also increased Cabela's overall scale. As a result, ratios remain strong, and long-term debt has actually been on the downslope for the last several quarters.

An especially strong brand among sportsmen should keep sales strong in CAB.
