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.

In this case Ruths Hospitality Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ruths Hospitality Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0288% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ruths Hospitality Group shares, roughly 29 shares are currently held short).
