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.
Applied Industrial Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.71. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Applied Industrial Technologies'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 421,761 Applied Industrial Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 10.9% down from 473,183 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Applied Industrial Technologies shares can be evaluated.

In other words for every 100,000 Applied Industrial Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2320 shares are currently held short.
However Applied Industrial Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Applied Industrial Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Applied Industrial Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Applied Industrial Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Applied Industrial Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Applied Industrial Technologies shares, roughly 11 shares are currently held short).

Dividend yield: 1.39% of stock value
Forward annual dividend yield: 1.41% of stock value
Dividend payout ratio: 32.18% of net profits
Applied Industrial Technologies has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.39% of its share value annually.
Applied Industrial Technologies has paid out, on average, around 32.18% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 1.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Applied Industrial Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.29 per share.
While Applied Industrial Technologies's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that it may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Applied Industrial Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 28 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Applied Industrial Technologies's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 June 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Applied Industrial Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Applied Industrial Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted Applied Industrial Technologies's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Applied Industrial Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $51.7222 up to $106.7144. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

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