LONDON, Sept 12 (Reuters) – Tesla (TSLA.O) topped a list of the most shorted large-cap U.S. stocks for a third month consecutively in August, securities lending firm Hazeltree said in a report published on Tuesday.
Tesla stock rallied over 5% on Monday after a Morgan Stanley (MS.N) note suggested the automaker’s Dojo supercomputer could bolster Tesla’s market value.
Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
