There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In this case Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0648% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation shares, roughly 65 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation.
