Many investors appear to be quite bearish on HCI Group Inc ( HCI ), especially if you look at the percentage of the float that is sold short for this stock. Currently, 24.7% of the float is sold short, suggesting an extreme level of bearishness for HCI .

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 have a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) on HCI, so we clearly don't believe in the negativity surrounding this firm, and are instead looking for shares of HCI to move higher in the weeks ahead.
