That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cooper Companies shares which in turn could have impacted Cooper Companies's share price.
