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.
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7922. 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 Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 14.4 million Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 14.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares can be evaluated.
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares traded daily (recently around 9.2 million). Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's SIR currently stands at 1.56. In other words for every 100,000 Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1560 shares are currently held short.
However Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0064% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares, roughly 6 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 Bristol-Myers Squibb Company.

Recently Bristol-Myers Squibb Company has paid out, on average, around 273.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's shares were split on a 1000000:95 basis on 7 August 2001. So if you had owned 95 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1000000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bristol-Myers Squibb Company shares which in turn could have impacted Bristol-Myers Squibb Company's share price.
