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.
Vera Bradley's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.31. 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 Vera Bradley'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 2.3 million Vera Bradley shares held short by investors – that's known as Vera Bradley's "short interest". This figure is 13.1% up from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vera Bradley shares can be evaluated.
Vera Bradley's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vera Bradley shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vera Bradley shares traded daily (recently around 312138.62718708). Vera Bradley's SIR currently stands at 7.43. In other words for every 100,000 Vera Bradley shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7430 shares are currently held short.
However Vera Bradley's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vera Bradley shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vera Bradley shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vera Bradley's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vera Bradley shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.1003% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vera Bradley shares, roughly 100 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Vera Bradley.
