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 2.2 million Zimmer Biomet shares held short by investors – that's known as Zimmer Biomet's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% up from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zimmer Biomet shares can be evaluated.
Zimmer Biomet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zimmer Biomet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zimmer Biomet shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Zimmer Biomet's SIR currently stands at 2.12. In other words for every 100,000 Zimmer Biomet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2120 shares are currently held short.
However Zimmer Biomet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zimmer Biomet shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zimmer Biomet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zimmer Biomet's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zimmer Biomet shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0106% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zimmer Biomet shares, roughly 11 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Zimmer Biomet.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Zimmer Biomet shareholders could enjoy a 0.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Zimmer Biomet's case, that would currently equate to about $0.96 per share.
