That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
American Assets Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 21.85. 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 American Assets Trust's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

In this case American Assets Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 American Assets Trust shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0216% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable American Assets Trust shares, roughly 22 shares are currently held short).

Dividend payout ratio: 49.02% of net profits
Recently American Assets Trust has paid out, on average, around 49.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), American Assets Trust shareholders could enjoy a 3.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In American Assets Trust's case, that would currently equate to about $1 per share.
While American Assets Trust's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that American Assets Trust may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
American Assets Trust's most recent dividend payout was on 24 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, American Assets Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.6681 up to $46.6349. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while American Assets Trust's is 1.2189. This would suggest that American Assets Trust's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
