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.
Cogent Communications's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9979. 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 Cogent Communications'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 1.3 million Cogent Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Cogent Communications's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cogent Communications shares can be evaluated.
Cogent Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cogent Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cogent Communications shares traded daily (recently around 372350.42735043). Cogent Communications's SIR currently stands at 3.51. In other words for every 100,000 Cogent Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3510 shares are currently held short.
However Cogent Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cogent Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cogent Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cogent Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cogent Communications shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0365% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cogent Communications shares, roughly 37 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 Cogent Communications.

Dividend payout ratio: 22.08% of net profits
Recently Cogent Communications has paid out, on average, around 22.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cogent Communications shareholders could enjoy a 4.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cogent Communications's case, that would currently equate to about $2.775 per share.
While Cogent Communications's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Cogent Communications is investing more in its future growth.
Cogent Communications's most recent dividend payout was on 25 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Cogent Communications's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 23 March 2005. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cogent Communications shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cogent Communications shares which in turn could have impacted Cogent Communications's share price.
