Fund managers and other large investors short sell stocks (bet that stocks will decrease in price) as a hedge and/or speculation. But if the price goes up too fast, short sellers get stuck and have to cover the short position by purchasing the stocks outright. This causes upward pressure on the prices of stocks.

Here is a list of stocks with the highest percentage of short positions, compared to the number of shares available for trading (float).

Note: The price is unpredictable and the stocks can come down just as fast as they rise.
