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.

There are currently 4.7 million DENTSPLY SIRONA shares held short by investors – that's known as DENTSPLY SIRONA's "short interest". This figure is 18% down from 5.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DENTSPLY SIRONA shares can be evaluated.
DENTSPLY SIRONA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DENTSPLY SIRONA shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DENTSPLY SIRONA shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million).

However DENTSPLY SIRONA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DENTSPLY SIRONA shares, or, against the total number of tradable DENTSPLY SIRONA shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DENTSPLY SIRONA's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DENTSPLY SIRONA shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0242% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DENTSPLY SIRONA shares, roughly 24 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 DENTSPLY SIRONA.

In DENTSPLY SIRONA's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
DENTSPLY SIRONA's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

DENTSPLY SIRONA's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 July 2006. 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 DENTSPLY SIRONA shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for DENTSPLY SIRONA shares which in turn could have impacted DENTSPLY SIRONA's share price.
Over the last 12 months, DENTSPLY SIRONA's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.575 up to $60.87. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
