That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Morgan Advanced Materials's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.57. 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 Morgan Advanced Materials's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 142.86% of net profits
Recently Morgan Advanced Materials has paid out, on average, around 142.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Morgan Advanced Materials shareholders could enjoy a 2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Morgan Advanced Materials's case, that would currently equate to about 0.06p per share.
Morgan Advanced Materials's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
