The price-to-earnings ratio, commonly known as the P/E ratio, is a financial metric used to evaluate the valuation of a company's stock. It is calculated by dividing the current market price of a stock by the company's earnings per share (EPS) over a specific period of time, usually the past 12 months. The P/E ratio is often used by investors to determine the relative value of a stock and to make investment decisions.
The P/E ratio can be a useful tool for comparing the valuation of different stocks, but it is important to consider other factors as well. For example, a company with a high P/E ratio may be experiencing rapid growth and be expected to continue to do so in the future, while a company with a low P/E ratio may be facing declining revenues or have less favorable future growth prospects.
