Bullish General Large Pic

Any upside in the major indexes could send these 4 stocks flying.

The S&P 500 and the Down Jones Ind. finished 0.6% higher today despite zero progess made avoiding the 'Fiscal Cliff'.  Four stocks did finish higher today and they are loaded with short interest.  Those names are Zillow Inc. (Z), RadioShack Corp. (RSH), J.C. Penny Company, Inc. (JCP) and wildcard candidate Pandora Media Inc. (P).  If the rally in equities continues the short sellers are going to have to switch course and send those four stocks higher.
