GAMCO Investors's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, GAMCO Investors shares trade at around 8x recent earnings.
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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 157,178 GAMCO Investors shares held short by investors – that's known as GAMCO Investors's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% down from 177,559 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GAMCO Investors shares can be evaluated.
GAMCO Investors's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GAMCO Investors shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GAMCO Investors shares traded daily (recently around 30110.727969349). GAMCO Investors's SIR currently stands at 5.22. In other words for every 100,000 GAMCO Investors shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5220 shares are currently held short.
However GAMCO Investors's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GAMCO Investors shares, or, against the total number of tradable GAMCO Investors shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GAMCO Investors's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GAMCO Investors shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0302% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GAMCO Investors shares, roughly 30 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 GAMCO Investors.

Dividend payout ratio: 46.16% of net profits
Recently GAMCO Investors has paid out, on average, around 46.16% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GAMCO Investors shareholders could enjoy a 0.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GAMCO Investors's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.
While GAMCO Investors's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that GAMCO Investors may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
GAMCO Investors's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
GAMCO Investors's shares were split on a 1857:1000 basis on 1 December 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1857 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GAMCO Investors shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 46.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GAMCO Investors shares which in turn could have impacted GAMCO Investors's share price.
Over the last 12 months, GAMCO Investors's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.4716 up to $18.95. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while GAMCO Investors's is 1.6961. This would suggest that GAMCO Investors's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
