15 Stocks to Short

Tim Sykes, my favorite short-selling blogger, has 15 names that he calls potential shorts:

RDNT is also nearly a double off its lows
CSUN reported bad earnings, but was probly priced in considering the stock jumped big, no w a double off its lows in just 3 days…I don’t like earnings plays, but I’m watching.
JRCC is also a double off its lows, just a stock that’s gotten wrecked, no other reason, potential short.
SRI was a great short for a 15% gain, $1,700 profit, detailed post coming, now the stock is dead to me.
STXS looked like it was gonna roll over yesterday, spiked last few minutes, support everywhere so shorting doesn’t look too good.
PRST up from $1 to $2 after a death spiral, potential short
FMD is waaay up off its lows but its also a finance company, no thanks
NCT is another finance place, ow with solid intraday support everywhere, no thanks, I need spiking action, much more likely to reverse!
KFS is a finance spiker, but only its first up day, watching it
TWB had its first up day, $2 to $3 after being in a yearlong death spiral, please oh God let there be a further squeeze.
LNC is a finance company that was trading at $50 just a few weeks ago, no thanks
YGE is like CSUN, alternative energy bouncer, almost a double off its lows.
YRCW continues squeezes shorts, I won’t be one of them.
SSW is up a bit off its lows, but it’s a real company, no thanks.

Most of these are low-priced stocks that are hemorrhaging money. One stock I recognize is Presstek (PRST) which was THE STOCK TO OWN in 1995 and 1996. The stock jumped about 25-fold in two years. At its current price of $2, let’s just say it’s come down since then.
