Shares of SolarCity are trading "well below" the expected $27/share that many analysts assume Tesla will pay to acquire the company. Meanwhile, borrow volume in the stock remains at the maximum 100 percent of available supply.

Shares of the communications technology provider soared after its June 24 initial public offering. However, short interest in the newly listed stock also rose from zero to 19 percent of the number of shares issued at the IPO as of last Friday.

Shares of the 3D printer manufacturer closed last week at $13.41, which is keeping "long and short investors on their toes" as more than 90 percent of the available shares have been borrowed by short sellers over the last 12 months.
