- Interoil ($IOC) has climbed into the top spot among U.S. top earners amid media speculation last month of a possible buy-out of the oil and gas company. Fees to borrow were trending even higher after the late-January spike. Utilization, conversely, has dropped a few percentage points since then.
- Twitter ($TWTR) fees to borrow have dropped again from the spike in mid-February. Utilization has slid about 6% since then as the social media stock has yet to fully recover from the decline in early February.
- The JC Penney ($JCP) stock price has been recovering since late February, while fees to borrow have been trending steadily higher. Some media have attributed the stock price gains to shrewd marketing during the recent Academy Awards, of which the department store is a sponsor.
