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.
Generac Holdings's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.6058. 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.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Generac Holdings'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 1.9 million Generac Holdings shares held short by investors – that's known as Generac Holdings's "short interest". This figure is 60.5% up from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Generac Holdings shares can be evaluated.
Generac Holdings's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Generac Holdings shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Generac Holdings shares traded daily (recently around 939503.96039604). Generac Holdings's SIR currently stands at 2.02. In other words for every 100,000 Generac Holdings shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2020 shares are currently held short.
However Generac Holdings's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Generac Holdings shares, or, against the total number of tradable Generac Holdings shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Generac Holdings's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Generac Holdings shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0347% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Generac Holdings shares, roughly 35 shares are currently held short).
