Short selling is not always just used as a bet against a stock, but that is what Wall Street evaluates short interest for.  We did note a drop in short selling on NASDAQ from mid-December to December 31.  But it is odd that short selling in alternative energy stocks has come down too.  this is despite how weak some of the alternative energy stocks have been and how the industry is being gutted by sudden cheap energy prices again.
