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 16.8 million C-HRobinson Worldwide shares held short by investors – that's known as C-HRobinson Worldwide's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% up from 16.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting C-HRobinson Worldwide shares can be evaluated.
C-HRobinson Worldwide's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of C-HRobinson Worldwide shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of C-HRobinson Worldwide shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). C-HRobinson Worldwide's SIR currently stands at 13.45. In other words for every 100,000 C-HRobinson Worldwide shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13450 shares are currently held short.
However C-HRobinson Worldwide's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of C-HRobinson Worldwide shares, or, against the total number of tradable C-HRobinson Worldwide shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case C-HRobinson Worldwide's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 C-HRobinson Worldwide shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1455% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable C-HRobinson Worldwide shares, roughly 146 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 C-HRobinson Worldwide.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for C-HRobinson Worldwide shares which in turn could have impacted C-HRobinson Worldwide's share price.
