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.

There are currently 4.9 million Cal-Maine Foods shares held short by investors – that's known as Cal-Maine Foods's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% up from 4.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cal-Maine Foods shares can be evaluated.
Cal-Maine Foods's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cal-Maine Foods shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cal-Maine Foods shares traded daily (recently around 310006.60377358). Cal-Maine Foods's SIR currently stands at 15.9. In other words for every 100,000 Cal-Maine Foods shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15900 shares are currently held short.
However Cal-Maine Foods's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cal-Maine Foods shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cal-Maine Foods shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cal-Maine Foods's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cal-Maine Foods shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.207% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cal-Maine Foods shares, roughly 207 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Cal-Maine Foods.
