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.
Clean Harbors's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 188.43. 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 Clean Harbors'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 673,325 Clean Harbors shares held short by investors – that's known as Clean Harbors's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% up from 639,404 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Clean Harbors shares can be evaluated.
Clean Harbors's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Clean Harbors shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Clean Harbors shares traded daily (recently around 313174.41860465). Clean Harbors's SIR currently stands at 2.15. In other words for every 100,000 Clean Harbors shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2150 shares are currently held short.
However Clean Harbors's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Clean Harbors shares, or, against the total number of tradable Clean Harbors shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Clean Harbors's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Clean Harbors shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0152% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Clean Harbors shares, roughly 15 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 Clean Harbors.

We're not expecting Clean Harbors to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Clean Harbors's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 July 2011. 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 Clean Harbors shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Clean Harbors shares which in turn could have impacted Clean Harbors's share price.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Clean Harbors's is 1.5036. This would suggest that Clean Harbors's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
