I have a few value stocks with high short interest. Some for reasons that I cannot figure out. Most were up strong Friday and so far today.

One big gainers for me today, is food manufacturer BGS with a 35.5% short interest and up 15% so far today. Its products are mostly shelf stable. Its 3Q sales were up 22% in 3Q2020 vs. 3Q2019, although down slightly from 2Q2020 when grocery shelves were largely emptied of shelf stable items.

Sold my BGS, BBBY, and DKS (all with high 10% or above short interests) in retirement accounts earlier this morning.

Still holding BGS and DKS shares in taxable account and will look at selling them when they go long term in March depending on what the price and fundamentals do between now and mid-March.
