Buy Hold Sell: Top 5 most shorted stocks

Buy Hold Sell

Livewire Markets

Recent data available via the ASIC website highlights stocks that are heavily shorted on the ASX. At the time of shooting the most shorted stocks, excluding Myer, were Metcash (ASX:MTS), Fortescue (ASX:FMG), Atlas (ASX:AGO), UGL Limited (ASX:UGL) and Primary Healthcare (PRY). With retailers, miners and associated service companies facing many headwinds the negative sentiment towards these companies is understandable. In this epsiode we ask Simon Bonvourie from Cadence Capital and Chris Stott from Wilson Asset Management for their views on each of the companies and if there is potential for turn around in one of these unloved names.
