The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Austin continue their series, "The Market's Most Hated Stocks," in which they look at companies with significant short interest, and discuss if they think these stocks deserve their higher short percentages. One of the companies with the highest short percentage is headphone maker Skullcandy. Do they agree with the short sellers of these stocks, or do they think they're getting it wrong?
