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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Matthews International Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However Matthews International Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Matthews International Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Matthews International Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Matthews International Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Matthews International Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0386% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Matthews International Corporation shares, roughly 39 shares are currently held short).

Dividend payout ratio: 28.07% of net profits
Recently Matthews International Corporation has paid out, on average, around 28.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Matthews International Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Matthews International Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.86 per share.
While Matthews International Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Matthews International Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Matthews International Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Matthews International Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 September 2001. 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 Matthews International Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Matthews International Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Matthews International Corporation's share price.
