There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PQ Group Holdings shares can be evaluated.

Short interest ratio (SIR)

PQ Group Holdings's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PQ Group Holdings shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PQ Group Holdings shares traded daily (recently around 878666.66666667). PQ Group Holdings's SIR currently stands at 0.9. In other words for every 100,000 PQ Group Holdings shares traded daily on the market, roughly 900 shares are currently held short.

In this case PQ Group Holdings's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PQ Group Holdings shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0205% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PQ Group Holdings shares, roughly 21 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 PQ Group Holdings.
