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.
Maxim Integrated Products's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4581. 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 Maxim Integrated Products's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.8 million Maxim Integrated Products shares held short by investors – that's known as Maxim Integrated Products's "short interest". This figure is 29.9% down from 12.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Maxim Integrated Products shares can be evaluated.
Maxim Integrated Products's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Maxim Integrated Products shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Maxim Integrated Products shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Maxim Integrated Products's SIR currently stands at 3.81. In other words for every 100,000 Maxim Integrated Products shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3810 shares are currently held short.
However Maxim Integrated Products's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Maxim Integrated Products shares, or, against the total number of tradable Maxim Integrated Products shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Maxim Integrated Products's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Maxim Integrated Products shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0402% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Maxim Integrated Products shares, roughly 40 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 Maxim Integrated Products.

Recently Maxim Integrated Products has paid out, on average, around 58.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Maxim Integrated Products shareholders could enjoy a 2.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Maxim Integrated Products's case, that would currently equate to about $1.92 per share.
Maxim Integrated Products's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Maxim Integrated Products's most recent dividend payout was on 11 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Maxim Integrated Products's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 December 1999. 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 Maxim Integrated Products shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Maxim Integrated Products shares which in turn could have impacted Maxim Integrated Products's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Maxim Integrated Products's shares have ranged in value from as little as $41.3024 up to $83.68. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that Maxim Integrated Products's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
