Tesla Inc. bears won’t let anyone steal the title for the most-shorted stock. Not even Apple Inc.

A parabolic spike in shares of the electric carmaker hasn’t stopped short sellers from betting the stock will go down. They drove the total dollar amount of shares borrowed to sell the stock short to $14.5 billion on Wednesday, data by financial analytics firm S3 Partners showed. That’s above the $14.3 billion invested in a bet Apple will go down.
