Uh...many stocks are > 80% to borrow at IB. And yes, high borrow rates are a reflection of high demand, not lack of demand. Kind of shocking not to understand this.
You clearly did not carefully read my last post deferring to the person who has knowledge on US markets. I'm in Asia. In HK for example, many stocks that a readily available have high rates for one reason or another and typically anything over 10% is extremely hard to borrow but not necessary in high demand.
