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.
Sharps Compliance's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.49. 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.

We're not expecting Sharps Compliance to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Sharps Compliance's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 24 July 1998. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sharps Compliance shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sharps Compliance shares which in turn could have impacted Sharps Compliance's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Sharps Compliance's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.83 up to $8.75. 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 Sharps Compliance's is 1.2814. This would suggest that Sharps Compliance's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
