Karooooo's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 37x. In other words, Karooooo shares trade at around 37x recent earnings.
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.

However Karooooo's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Karooooo shares, or, against the total number of tradable Karooooo shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Karooooo's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Karooooo shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0004% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Karooooo shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).
