Top Shorts Report: Taking profits in Paramount Resources

Short sellers reduced their exposure to Paramount Resources in the first half of June as the stock put in new year-to-date lows. Nevertheless, that still left the stock as one of the most shorted as a percentage of its float in Canada. Jumping to the top of Top 10 table based on IIROC data as of June 15th is tightly controlled Stingray Group which has a relatively small estimated float. As such, we would be reluctant to read too much into the short positioning in that stock.

The other new arrival in the Top 10 is Automotive Property REIT which announced on June 12th a 7 million unit offering priced at $10.45 per unit in conjunction with a dealership property deal.
