Urban Outfitters's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Urban Outfitters shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.
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.
Urban Outfitters's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8124. 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 Urban Outfitters'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 7.7 million Urban Outfitters shares held short by investors – that's known as Urban Outfitters's "short interest". This figure is 4.4% down from 8.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Urban Outfitters shares can be evaluated.
Urban Outfitters's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Urban Outfitters shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Urban Outfitters shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Urban Outfitters's SIR currently stands at 3.7. In other words for every 100,000 Urban Outfitters shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3700 shares are currently held short.
However Urban Outfitters's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Urban Outfitters shares, or, against the total number of tradable Urban Outfitters shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Urban Outfitters's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Urban Outfitters shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1127% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Urban Outfitters shares, roughly 113 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 Urban Outfitters.

We're not expecting Urban Outfitters to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Urban Outfitters's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 September 2005. 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 Urban Outfitters shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Urban Outfitters shares which in turn could have impacted Urban Outfitters's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Urban Outfitters's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.28 up to $31.41. 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 Urban Outfitters's is 1.5383. This would suggest that Urban Outfitters's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
