Merck Becomes #20 Most Shorted Dow Stock, Replacing Walt Disney C

The most recent short interest data has been released for the 01/12/2018 settlement date, and we here at Dividend Channel like to sift through this fresh data and order the underlying components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average by "days to cover."

The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed.
