The Most Hated Stocks in America

The stock of the venerable retailer Sears is already down 43 percent this year, but people are still betting on it to fall further, leading the web site MarketWatch to call Sears the most hated stock in the U.S. The level of short interest in Sears is at 65.6 percent, meaning nearly two thirds of people interested in the stock expect it to drop.

The other leaders on the list of "most hated":
  • Weight Watchers, 62.4 percent short interest
  • Insys Therapeutics, 57.1 percent
  • Adeptus Health, 54.3 percent
  • Clayton Williams Energy, 53.1 percent
  • RPC Inc., 47.0 percent
