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.

There are currently 3.6 million Papa Johns International shares held short by investors – that's known as Papa Johns International's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% down from 3.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Papa Johns International shares can be evaluated.
Papa Johns International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Papa Johns International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Papa Johns International shares traded daily (recently around 671888.33333333). Papa Johns International's SIR currently stands at 5.4. In other words for every 100,000 Papa Johns International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5400 shares are currently held short.
However Papa Johns International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Papa Johns International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Papa Johns International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Papa Johns International's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Papa Johns International shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1397% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Papa Johns International shares, roughly 140 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Papa Johns International.

Dividend payout ratio: 66.67% of net profits
Recently Papa Johns International has paid out, on average, around 66.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Papa Johns International shareholders could enjoy a 1.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Papa Johns International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.
Papa Johns International'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.
Papa Johns International's most recent dividend payout was on 20 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Papa Johns International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 December 2013. 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 Papa Johns International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Papa Johns International shares which in turn could have impacted Papa Johns International's share price.
