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.

In Werner Enterprises's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Werner Enterprises shares which in turn could have impacted Werner Enterprises's share price.
