I'm looking for short interest data (those disclosed on 15 days basis to FINRA)

Some sites like gurufocus.com (under ownership sections) contain it and I doubt they buy it from NYSE.

Do you know about feasible way to obtain this data (in CSV and free would be a dream, but I don't expect that), without scraping sites like gurufocus (some more official way like FINRA download page)

    shortsqueeze.com is decent. The monthly fee for membership is quite reasonable. – amdopt Sep 25 '17 at 17:57
  • SunGard and DataExplorers were the two commercial products for this. Their historical coverage wasn't so great when I last checked years ago, but presumably is years better now. – shabbychef May 17 at 5:37

The short interest data is available in WSJ, Barrons -

The 1,495,223 is the short interest corresponding to 8/31.

Barrons has a similar URL -
