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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 313,952 Omega Flex shares held short by investors – that's known as Omega Flex's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 310,777 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Omega Flex shares can be evaluated.
Omega Flex's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Omega Flex shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Omega Flex shares traded daily (recently around 8888.7882219706). Omega Flex's SIR currently stands at 35.32. In other words for every 100,000 Omega Flex shares traded daily on the market, roughly 35320 shares are currently held short.
However Omega Flex's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Omega Flex shares, or, against the total number of tradable Omega Flex shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Omega Flex's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Omega Flex shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.185% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Omega Flex shares, roughly 185 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Omega Flex.

Dividend payout ratio: 239.57% of net profits
Recently Omega Flex has paid out, on average, around 239.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Omega Flex shareholders could enjoy a 0.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Omega Flex's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.
Omega Flex'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.
Omega Flex's most recent dividend payout was on 13 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Omega Flex's shares have ranged in value from as little as $49.9791 up to $183. 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 Omega Flex's is 0.5454. This would suggest that Omega Flex's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
