That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Allison Transmission's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 16.6584. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Allison Transmission's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.9 million Allison Transmission shares held short by investors – that's known as Allison Transmission's "short interest". This figure is 41.2% up from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Allison Transmission shares can be evaluated.
Allison Transmission's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Allison Transmission shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Allison Transmission shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Allison Transmission's SIR currently stands at 2.68. In other words for every 100,000 Allison Transmission shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2680 shares are currently held short.
However Allison Transmission's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Allison Transmission shares, or, against the total number of tradable Allison Transmission shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Allison Transmission's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Allison Transmission shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0337% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Allison Transmission shares, roughly 34 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 Allison Transmission.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Allison Transmission shareholders could enjoy a 1.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Allison Transmission's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
