If too many short sellers buy the stock in tandem, as is the case with Tesla, that can in fact create higher demand and drive share prices even higher, known as a “short squeeze.” Including the $2.5 billion lost by Tesla short sellers on Monday, investors who bet against the electric-vehicle maker are down a total of $8.3 billion so far this year, according to S3.
