The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Austin continue their series, "The Market's Most Hated Stocks." In this series, we look at companies with significant short interest, and discuss whether we think these stocks deserve their higher short percentages. One of the companies with the highest short percentage is Coinstar, which recently signed a partnership agreement with Verizon. Do we agree with the short-sellers of these stocks, or do we think they're getting it wrong?
