Below is a list of stocks with relatively significant short carry cost. In is an explanation related to the carry cost of short stock position which was given in another post. Some excerpts:

"When stock investors buy a stock in their brokerage account, the stock shares are typically held under what is termed as street name, which makes the job of settlement of stock share transactions much easier, fast and efficient (compared for instance to a situation where stock buyers would hold stock shares in their safe boxes).

In addition, stock brokers may lend shares to stock market participants that speculate on a decrease in the price of a stock. These latter stock market participants are called short sellers. (They sell stock first, and buy the stock later). This is known as short selling. Since short sellers do not have the shares to sell short stock, they borrow them. If the demand to sell short shares of a stock is higher, short sellers may be charged a rate which can be very high depending on the stock and the demand for to borrow shares for shorting.

How much could a short seller pay to short shares of a stock? This is generally known as indicate short selling rate. The indicative rates for some stocks can be much higher than the interest rates on cash (which is currently at 0.25%). Certain stocks in the list below have an indicate short selling rate with is close to 100%.
The reason for the rates to be high could vary, but the main point is that they can be high (see list below).


The number to the right on the list of stocks below is an indicate rate that stock brokers may charge a short sellers. The rates change because it is a market like all other markets, and prices for shorting shares change as well.
