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.
Carpenter Technology Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6241. 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 Carpenter Technology Corporation'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 2.0 million Carpenter Technology Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Carpenter Technology Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% up from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Carpenter Technology Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Carpenter Technology Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Carpenter Technology Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Carpenter Technology Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 408642.68537074). Carpenter Technology Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.99. In other words for every 100,000 Carpenter Technology Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4990 shares are currently held short.
However Carpenter Technology Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Carpenter Technology Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Carpenter Technology Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Carpenter Technology Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Carpenter Technology Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0555% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Carpenter Technology Corporation shares, roughly 56 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 Carpenter Technology Corporation.
