The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Welbilt's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Welbilt stocks can be evaluated.
Welbilt's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Welbilt's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Welbilt stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Welbilt stocks traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Welbilt's SIR currently stands at 4.09. In other words for every 100,000 Welbilt stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4090 stocks are currently held short.
However Welbilt's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Welbilt stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Welbilt stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Welbilt's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Welbilt stocks in existence, roughly 50 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0534% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Welbilt stocks, roughly 53 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Welbilt.
