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.
Glatfelter Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.8. 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 Glatfelter 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.

Recently Glatfelter Corporation has paid out, on average, around 64.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Glatfelter Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Glatfelter Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.535 per share.
Glatfelter Corporation'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.

Glatfelter Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 May 1992. 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 Glatfelter Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Glatfelter Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Glatfelter Corporation's share price.
