An examination of the most recent short interest data revealed these five Barry Rosenstein stocks with particularly high short interest, as measured by "days to cover." This metric is just one way to look at short data, but this is a metric we here at Holdings Channel find particularly useful because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days (at the average volume) it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed. So for example we found that Valvoline Inc (NYSE:VVV) now has 20.49 days to cover.

Looking through the stocks held by Barry Rosenstein for the most recent reporting period, we found the following five stand-outs with the highest levels of short interest as measured by the number of days to cover. The first column is the Barry Rosenstein holding, the second column is the number of days to cover, the third column is the number of shares held at Jana Partners at last report, and the final column is the total number of shares short (in this way we can compare "Barry Rosenstein vs. The Shorts" as far as the relative positions).

Barry Rosenstein HoldingDays To CoverJana Partners SharesShort Interest
VVV 20.49 1,319,727 15,445,274
ACAD 16.78 301,243 20,127,567
RDUS 15.39 172,310 8,084,541
SEM 12.74 2,273,398 7,289,214
PBYI 11.04 142,727 7,784,785

As you can see, Valvoline Inc (NYSE:VVV) is an interesting situation, as are Acadia Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:ACAD), Radius Health Inc (NASDAQ:RDUS), Select Medical Holdings Corp (NYSE:SEM), and Puma Biotechnology Inc (NASDAQ:PBYI) why are short sellers attracted to these names, while Barry Rosenstein has the opposite view (i.e. Jana Partners is long those stocks)? It could simply be a matter of differing viewpoint on valuation of each given stock, or there could be fundamental disagreements over what is happening at the business level and whether recent developments are positive or negative for that company's future success. Following quarterly 13F filings to keep track of Barry Rosenstein stock picks is warranted for investors interested in keeping track of what Barry Rosenstein does with these positions (adds, reduces, or exits).
