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.
WisdomTree Investments's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1. 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.0 million WisdomTree Investments shares held short by investors – that's known as WisdomTree Investments's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 8.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting WisdomTree Investments shares can be evaluated.
WisdomTree Investments's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WisdomTree Investments shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WisdomTree Investments shares traded daily (recently around 662519.15422886). WisdomTree Investments's SIR currently stands at 12.06. In other words for every 100,000 WisdomTree Investments shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12060 shares are currently held short.
However WisdomTree Investments's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WisdomTree Investments shares, or, against the total number of tradable WisdomTree Investments shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WisdomTree Investments's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WisdomTree Investments shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0797% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WisdomTree Investments shares, roughly 80 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against WisdomTree Investments.

Dividend payout ratio: 48% of net profits
Recently WisdomTree Investments has paid out, on average, around 48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), WisdomTree Investments shareholders could enjoy a 2.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In WisdomTree Investments's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.
While WisdomTree Investments's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that WisdomTree Investments may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
WisdomTree Investments's most recent dividend payout was on 25 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, WisdomTree Investments's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.81 up to $5.11. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

This would suggest that WisdomTree Investments's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
