The vertical black dashed lines under the “X’s” mark the Ex-Dividend or Ex-Distribution dates for the entities. You may notice that some of the short positions tend to get covered prior to the Ex dates so they do not have to pay the dividends/distributions. Technically the data is as of the close on the date shown and not continuous data for every day, so the entire short position could be covered prior to the Ex date and then put back on the following day.

Two week change in the amount of units/shares sold short:

  • KMI: Up 5.7% – New High in Number of Shares Sold Short
  • KMP: Down 8.9%
  • KMR: Up 4.0%
  • EPB: Down 24.0%

Hedgeye’s short thesis continues to gain traction with market participants.

    Funny how big money plays epb, kmi, kmp. Go long on, short the other, then reverse the trade. I’m a KM fan and looking down the road and just collecting the dividends. Give me the share cheap.
