Carriage Services's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Carriage Services shares trade at around 15x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Carriage Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9558. 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 Carriage Services's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Carriage Services's SIR currently stands at 2.63. In other words for every 100,000 Carriage Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2630 shares are currently held short.
However Carriage Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Carriage Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Carriage Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Carriage Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Carriage Services shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0283% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Carriage Services shares, roughly 28 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 Carriage Services.
