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.
Raven Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0598. 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 Raven Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 759,708 Raven Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Raven Industries's "short interest". This figure is 17.8% up from 644,954 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Raven Industries shares can be evaluated.

Raven Industries's SIR currently stands at 2.73. In other words for every 100,000 Raven Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2730 shares are currently held short.
However Raven Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Raven Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Raven Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Raven Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Raven Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0289% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Raven Industries shares, roughly 29 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 Raven Industries.

Dividend payout ratio: 43.33% of net profits
Recently Raven Industries has paid out, on average, around 43.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Raven Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Raven Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.39 per share.
While Raven Industries's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Raven Industries may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Raven Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 31 July 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Raven Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 July 2012. 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 Raven Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Raven Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Raven Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Raven Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.823 up to $42.86. 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 Raven Industries's is 1.4995. This would suggest that Raven Industries's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
