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.
Eaton Vance's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4203. 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 Eaton Vance'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 5.7 million Eaton Vance shares held short by investors – that's known as Eaton Vance's "short interest". This figure is 12% down from 6.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Eaton Vance shares can be evaluated.
Eaton Vance's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eaton Vance shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eaton Vance shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Eaton Vance's SIR currently stands at 2.3. In other words for every 100,000 Eaton Vance shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2300 shares are currently held short.
However Eaton Vance's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eaton Vance shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eaton Vance shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eaton Vance's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eaton Vance shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0514% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eaton Vance shares, roughly 51 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 Eaton Vance.

Dividend payout ratio: 159.97% of net profits
Recently Eaton Vance has paid out, on average, around 159.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.22% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eaton Vance shareholders could enjoy a 2.22% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eaton Vance's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.
Eaton Vance'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.
Eaton Vance's most recent dividend payout was on 18 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Eaton Vance's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 January 2005. 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 Eaton Vance shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eaton Vance shares which in turn could have impacted Eaton Vance's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Eaton Vance's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.5489 up to $68.19. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
