These Soaring Stocks Are Crushing Short-Sellers

The rising stock market has helped millions of investors post impressive gains recently. But even as the Dow Jones Industrials (DJINDICES: ^DJI  ) have been setting successive all-time record highs, short-sellers who bet against the market have seen their fortunes dwindle.

In the following video, Fool markets analyst Mike Klesta talks with Fool contributor Dan Caplinger about four stocks that have hit short-sellers especially hard. Despite the confidence that short-sellers had that these four companies were doomed to failure, their share prices have defied their expectations and exploded higher, causing massive losses for shorts. Dan runs through all four companies and discusses whether they've run their course or whether they could push higher still in the months and years to come.

One of the stocks mentioned is Tesla, whose plan to disrupt the global auto business has yielded spectacular results. But giant competitors are already moving to disrupt Tesla. Will the company be able to fend them off? The Motley Fool answers this question and more in our most in-depth Tesla research available. Get instant access by clicking here now.
