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.

There are currently 2.0 million Choice Hotels International shares held short by investors – that's known as Choice Hotels International's "short interest". This figure is 25% down from 2.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Choice Hotels International shares can be evaluated.
Choice Hotels International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Choice Hotels International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Choice Hotels International shares traded daily (recently around 278178.5915493). Choice Hotels International's SIR currently stands at 7.1. In other words for every 100,000 Choice Hotels International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7100 shares are currently held short.
However Choice Hotels International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Choice Hotels International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Choice Hotels International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Choice Hotels International's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Choice Hotels International shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0489% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Choice Hotels International shares, roughly 49 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 Choice Hotels International.

Dividend payout ratio: 18.22% of net profits
Recently Choice Hotels International has paid out, on average, around 18.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Choice Hotels International shareholders could enjoy a 1.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Choice Hotels International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.9 per share.
While Choice Hotels International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Choice Hotels International is investing more in its future growth.
Choice Hotels International's most recent dividend payout was on 16 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Choice Hotels International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 October 2005. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Choice Hotels International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Choice Hotels International shares which in turn could have impacted Choice Hotels International's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Choice Hotels International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.0801 up to $108.86. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
