I'm not sure which prof (Charles or Alex) was mentioning shorting the cost of certain stock at 60% ++ in one of the posts, but I found this interesting paper on the subject: "The Shorting Premium and Asset Pricing Anomalies".

Here is a two line summary of the paper:

1. The cheap-minus-expensive-to-short (CME) portfolio of stocks has an average monthly gross return of 1.45%, a 0.92% net return, and a 1.55% four-factor alpha

2. Top decile stocks by shorting premium (cheap to short) returned an average of 0.75% (gross) and 0.11 % (net) in the next one month, while bottom decile (expensive to short) returned -0.71% (gross) and -0.17% (net).
