Price to Earning

Indicator Description

Generally speaking, the Price to Earnings ratio gives investors an idea of what the market is willing to pay for the company's current earnings.

P/E 
 = 
Market Value Per Share 
Earnings Per Share 

Price to Earnings ratio is typically used for current valuation of a company and is one of the most popular ratios that investors monitor daily. Holding a low PE stock is less risky because when a company's profitability falls, it is likely that earnings will also go down as well. In other words, if you start from a lower position, your downside risk is limited. There are also some investors who believe that low Price to Earnings ratio reflects the low pricing because a given company is in trouble. On the other hand, a higher PE ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of profit.
