The Tell: These are the 10 most crowded trades in the stock market right now

Swiss bank UBS this week released its list of the 10 most crowded trades, and among the mostly familiar crop of names, there are a few you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see, including the stock holding the top spot.

To determine which stock earns the “crowded” designation, the bank essentially compares the most overweight and underweight positions by global active fund managers in different regions around the world.

While this isn’t necessarily a bearish indicator, contrarians often put this kind of data to use by taking the other side of these plays, betting that once a stock falls out of favor, the drop will be a profitable one for short sellers, or those who aim to profit from price drops.
