The May 15 short interest figures show that Stanley Black & Decker (SWK) has pulled back from highs over the previous report but continues to be on the higher side, indicating that the negative sentiments have gripped the stock and bears appear to have gained the upper hand. As of May 15, SWK’s short interest as a percentage of its outstanding shares was 2.0% compared to 2.3% in the previous report.
