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.
Liquidity Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.39. 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 Liquidity 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 993,593 Liquidity Services shares held short by investors – that's known as Liquidity Services's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Liquidity Services shares can be evaluated.
Liquidity Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Liquidity Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Liquidity Services shares traded daily (recently around 428272.84482759). Liquidity Services's SIR currently stands at 2.32. In other words for every 100,000 Liquidity Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2320 shares are currently held short.
However Liquidity Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Liquidity Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Liquidity Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Liquidity Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Liquidity Services shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0441% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Liquidity Services shares, roughly 44 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 Liquidity Services.
