Cohu's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6. 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 Cohu'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 1.1 million Cohu shares held short by investors – that's known as Cohu's "short interest". This figure is 0.1% up from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cohu shares can be evaluated.
Cohu's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cohu shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cohu shares traded daily (recently around 281225.56390977). Cohu's SIR currently stands at 3.99. In other words for every 100,000 Cohu shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3990 shares are currently held short.
However Cohu's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cohu shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cohu shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cohu's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cohu shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0325% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cohu shares, roughly 33 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 Cohu.

We're not expecting Cohu to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Cohu's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 September 1999. 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 Cohu shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cohu shares which in turn could have impacted Cohu's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Cohu's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.8901 up to $26.43. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Cohu's is 1.8356. This would suggest that Cohu's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
