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.
Hallmark Financial Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 9.43. 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 Hallmark Financial Services's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 158,932 Hallmark Financial Services shares held short by investors – that's known as Hallmark Financial Services's "short interest". This figure is 19.1% down from 196,436 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hallmark Financial Services shares can be evaluated.

Hallmark Financial Services's SIR currently stands at 1.67. In other words for every 100,000 Hallmark Financial Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1670 shares are currently held short.
However Hallmark Financial Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hallmark Financial Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hallmark Financial Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hallmark Financial Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hallmark Financial Services shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0253% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hallmark Financial Services shares, roughly 25 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 Hallmark Financial Services.

Hallmark Financial Services's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 31 July 2006. So if you had owned 6 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hallmark Financial Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hallmark Financial Services shares which in turn could have impacted Hallmark Financial Services's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Hallmark Financial Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.28 up to $18.94. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Hallmark Financial Services's is 1.4777. This would suggest that Hallmark Financial Services's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
