It's been a pretty tepid year for Salesforce.com ( CRM). Shares of the $26 billion enterprise software company have only climbed 7% so far in 2013, falling well short of the S&P 500's hefty 15% return year-to-date. That underperformance is attracting short sellers this quarter, as Salesforce climbs up investors' hate list. At last count, the firm's short interest ratio rang in at 10.82, indicating that it would take more than two weeks of selling for shorts to exit their bets against CRM.
