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.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Teleflex Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 0.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Teleflex Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $1.36 per share.
While Teleflex Incorporated's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Teleflex Incorporated is investing more in its future growth.

Teleflex Incorporated's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 June 1997. 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 Teleflex Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Teleflex Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Teleflex Incorporated's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Teleflex Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $221.27 up to $409.27. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
