Southern Becomes #214 Most Shorted S&P 500 Component, Replacing Chipotle Mexican Grill

The most recent short interest data has been released for the 07/29/2016 settlement date, and we here at Dividend Channel like to sift through this fresh data and order the underlying components of the S&P 500 by "days to cover."
