Short report: Bearish setup signals dominate, despite some bullish exceptions

Bearish signals continue to dominate our short report, with eight names having bearish setups in the top ten most-shorted list. Although our signals still point to a potential short squeeze in oil patch names Paramount Resources (POU) and Bonterra Energy (BNE), the oil price is not cooperating. As such, the shorts appear to have the wind at their backs as we head into the home stretch this summer.

Odds are stacked against shorts targeting Well Health Technologies

While the short positioning in Paramount Resources (Mixed; POU) remains off its peak seen in mid-May, short bets against the stock remain highly elevated. The stock has recently pulled back from a rally off its June lows and short sellers seem generally content to hold on to their bets for a stock breakdown.

A notable change in our Top 10 most shorted list this week is the disappearance of Stingray Group (Mixed; RAY) due to an increase in the stock's estimated float. That paved the way for Laurentian Bank (Mixed: LB) which takes the 10th spot. Based on our signals, the shorts may be on to something there. In terms of signals, Cargojet (Mixed; CJT) has flipped back to a bearish setup.

Shorts stick with their favourites

With most Q1 earnings reports out of the way, short sellers are sticking with their favourite targets. Bonterra Energy (BNE) is the only new name on our ten most shorted stock list (as a % of float), replacing Laurentian Bank (LB) which is now the 11th most shorted stock. The top two spots continue to be held by Paramount Resources (POU) and High Liner Foods (HLF).
