Apple Inc. is now Wall Street’s biggest short bet, displacing Tesla Inc., which had held the title nonstop since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Short interest in Apple was $18.4 billion as of Wednesday, while short interest in Tesla was $17.4 billion, according to research from S3 Partners. Tesla spent 864 days as the top stock by short interest — since April 2020 — before Apple stepped in to reclaim the position, the financial data and analytics company reported. Both names are well ahead of third-place Microsoft Corp. which had $11.0 billion in short interest Wednesday.
