From 24/7 Wall Street:
The second half of November showed somewhat of a mixed bag in short selling activity in the universe of our actively traded and more prominent solar stocks. We saw a gain in short selling many names at the end of November versus mid-November.

The gains in short selling in major solar players are as follows:
