Johnson & Johnson
It may seem surprising that a staid blue-chip name such as Johnson & Johnson (JNJ - Get Report) could top off our list of hated stocks, but investors are piling in against this stock right now. As I write, JNJ's short interest ratio comes in at 10.7, which indicates that it would take more than two full weeks of buying pressure for shorts to exit their bets under current volume levels. That makes this $215 billion health care company a prime candidate for a short squeeze this year.
