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.

There are currently 3.1 million The Children’s Place shares held short by investors – that's known as The Children’s Place's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% down from 3.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting The Children’s Place shares can be evaluated.
The Children’s Place's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of The Children’s Place shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of The Children’s Place shares traded daily (recently around 578353.27102804). The Children’s Place's SIR currently stands at 5.35. In other words for every 100,000 The Children’s Place shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5350 shares are currently held short.
However The Children’s Place's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of The Children’s Place shares, or, against the total number of tradable The Children’s Place shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case The Children’s Place's short interest could be expressed as 0.21% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 The Children’s Place shares in existence, roughly 210 shares are currently held short) or 0.2213% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable The Children’s Place shares, roughly 221 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 The Children’s Place.
We're not expecting The Children’s Place to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
