Two week change in the amount of units sold short:

  • ATLS: Up 5.7%
  • APL: Up 5.6%
  • ARP: Up 4.6%

If you are a retail investor and shorting these names, please pay attention to the Ex-Distribution dates so you don’t also have to pay the distributions. In addition, you should also take into account your additional cost to borrow each security from your broker. Many MLPs are typically “Hard to Borrow” so assuming your broker finds you units to borrow to short, they may charge a high rate.
