There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Advanced Micro Devices shares can be evaluated.
Advanced Micro Devices's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

In this case Advanced Micro Devices's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Advanced Micro Devices shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0684% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Advanced Micro Devices shares, roughly 68 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Advanced Micro Devices.
