What Is P/E Ratio?
The analysis is carried out based on the P/E indicator. The Price-to-earnings ratio is the measurement for valuing a company. It compares the current share price with its per-share earnings. The higher the ratio, the longer it will take for the investment in the company to pay off. The indicator is suitable for comparing companies, industries, or even entire stock markets.
