Better Short-Squeeze Stock: Carvana vs. Marathon Digital Holdings

Better Short-Squeeze Stock: Carvana vs. Marathon Digital Holdings

Carvana (NYSE: CVNA) and Marathon Digital Holdings (NASDAQ: MARA) are two of the market's most heavily shorted stocks, with 71% and 35% of their outstanding shares being sold short, respectively, as of Feb. 27. Carvana's online sales of used cars slowed to a crawl as inflation curbed purchases of vehicles and rising rates discouraged customers from taking out new auto loans. Marathon Digital's Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) mining business, which was built entirely on expanding its fleet of miners and mining more coins, struggled as the top cryptocurrency lost its value.
