Schaeffer's bi-weekly review of companies seeing major changes in short interest (the percentage of a company's stock that has been sold short -- or a bet that the stock will move lower) covers several sectors, including international telecoms, industrial manufacturing, investment funds, auto parts and auto makers, and mining. But an analysis of the list doesn't turn up an immediate candidate for a short-squeeze rally -- spurred when short traders rush to sell off their positions if the stock rises, thereby driving the price even higher. Here is a quick look at the companies with the largest gains and drops in short interest over the last two weeks, followed by a full list of the top 25 short interest decreases and increases:
