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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Columbus McKinnon Corporation'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 632,700 Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Columbus McKinnon Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% up from 567,632 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Columbus McKinnon Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.87. In other words for every 100,000 Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7870 shares are currently held short.
However Columbus McKinnon Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Columbus McKinnon Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0265% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Columbus McKinnon Corporation shares, roughly 27 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Columbus McKinnon Corporation.
