Many investors appear to be quite bearish RPC, Inc. ( RES ) especially if you look at the percentage of the float that is sold short for this stock. Currently, 21.2% of the float is sold short, suggesting an extreme level of bearishness for RES .

However, it is worth noting that earnings estimates have actually been moving higher for the company, despite the pessimism. Thanks to these rising estimates, we actually have a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) on RES, so we clearly don't believe in the negativity surrounding this firm, and are instead looking for shares of RES to move higher in the weeks ahead.
