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.
Dorman Products's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.37. 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 Dorman Products's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

In this case Dorman Products's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dorman Products shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0328% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dorman Products shares, roughly 33 shares are currently held short).
