What is PE Ratio:

P/E Ratio or PE Ratio as they are commonly referred to stand for the Price to Earnings Ratio of a company or a share. In simple terms it helps investors in calculating the price multiple that investors are willing to pay for a company’s earnings.

PE Ratio Formula:

P/E Ratio of a Stock = Current Market Price of the stock/Earnings per share
The current market price of the stock can be obtained from the stock exchanges where the stock is listed.
The Earnings per share used in the denominator can be of 2 kinds

  • Trailing EPS used to calculate trailing P/E multiple – The actual reported earning per share of the company for the immediately preceding financial year i.e. for 12 months trailing. You can find the trailing PE ratio of the company from the SAMCO Data Bank available in the SAMCO Back Office – SAMCO STAR.
  • Forward EPS used to calculate forward P/E multiple – The forecasted earning per share of the company for the next immediate financial year i.e. for 12 months forward

When the price of a stock is INR 20 and the EPS is INR 2, PE works out to 10. The price-earnings ratio tells that the investor willing to pay INR 20 for earning INR 2.

PE Ratio Interpretation

In value investing, ‘value is what you get and price is what you pay.’ Value is nothing but the differential between current price and fair value of the stock.

In fundamental analysis, to derive at fair value analysts use various methods and ratios. P/E is one of the most important and interesting ratios used to compare the price and value of a particular stock.

Usually higher the P/E ratio, the more premium is the stock and vice versa. A high P/E ratio doesn’t necessarily mean that a stock is expensive and should be sold. It simply means that investors are willing to pay a premium to hold the stock. This premium may be due to a variety of factors.

In simple terms, its a valuation tool used to determine whether the stock is being traded at the Exchange at a premium or a discount to the worth of the underlying value of the business.
