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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Cal-Maine Foods'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 4.5 million Cal-Maine Foods shares held short by investors – that's known as Cal-Maine Foods's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% down from 4.9 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 382830.38626609). Cal-Maine Foods's SIR currently stands at 11.65. In other words for every 100,000 Cal-Maine Foods shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11650 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 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cal-Maine Foods shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1091% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cal-Maine Foods shares, roughly 109 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.

Recently Cal-Maine Foods has paid out, on average, around 48.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cal-Maine Foods shareholders could enjoy a 0.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cal-Maine Foods's case, that would currently equate to about $0.034 per share.
While Cal-Maine Foods's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Cal-Maine Foods may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Cal-Maine Foods's most recent dividend payout was on 12 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Cal-Maine Foods's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 November 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cal-Maine Foods shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cal-Maine Foods shares which in turn could have impacted Cal-Maine Foods's share price.
