That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Shorting Crawford-and-Company shares
There are currently 147,751 Crawford-and-Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Crawford-and-Company's "short interest". This figure is 29% down from 207,961 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Crawford-and-Company shares can be evaluated.
Crawford-and-Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Crawford-and-Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Crawford-and-Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Crawford-and-Company shares traded daily (recently around 69042.523364486). Crawford-and-Company's SIR currently stands at 2.14. In other words for every 100,000 Crawford-and-Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2140 shares are currently held short.
However Crawford-and-Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Crawford-and-Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Crawford-and-Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Crawford-and-Company's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Crawford-and-Company shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0057% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Crawford-and-Company shares, roughly 6 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 Crawford-and-Company.

Crawford-and-Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 25.3% of net profits
Recently Crawford-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 25.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Crawford-and-Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Crawford-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.18 per share.
While Crawford-and-Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Crawford-and-Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Crawford-and-Company's most recent dividend payout was on 10 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Crawford-and-Company's shares ever split?
Crawford-and-Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 March 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Crawford-and-Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Crawford-and-Company shares which in turn could have impacted Crawford-and-Company's share price.
Crawford-and-Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Crawford-and-Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.9266 up to $10.9325. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
