Is anyone shorting stocks or funds in this market environment?
There seem to be some high flying prices with some stocks - not that they are bad businesses but that valuations are too high given their business and outlook. Does anyone have thoughts going against what seems to be the mass momentum?

There is always going to be pockets of shorting opportunity based on specific indicators and whatever technical analysis people do. Yes the markets and indices are hitting all time highs over and over and in aggregate seems like a losing proposition if that is what you mean by mass momentum. If you are shorting stocks or funds just know what you're getting into.

Regardless of how the broader market does there are always short-sellers around because there are opportunities for them. There are lists out there showing highest interest in shorts like this one: https://www.highshortinterest.com/. But before you follow any of the names on the list do your own analysis always.
