The above SSF are currently bid above the last stock tick. Meaning you can sell the future, hold to expiration and get the short stock at a premium to the current cash price. All prices above were last updated at 12:39:01 EST on 2014-10-21, and will have fresh updates throughout the trading day.

If you are currently short the stock, you can sell the exchange for physical (EFP), thus converting your short stock position to short futures, capturing the premium and eliminating your short interest charges. Learn more about EFPs at EFP education.
