Price/Earnings Growth Ratio

price earnings growth ratio special research report Photo by
A common stock analysis statistic in which the current price of a stock is divided by the current (or sometimes the projected) earnings per share of the issuing firm. As a rule, a relatively high price-earnings ratio is an indication that investors believe the firm's earnings are likely to grow. Price-earnings ratios vary significantly among companies, among industries, and over time. One of the important influences on this ratio is long-term interest rates. In general, relatively high rates result in low price-earnings ratios; low interest rates result in high price-earnings ratios. Also called earnings multiple , market ...
ratio) is a valuation metric for determining the relative trade-off between the price of a stock, the earnings generated per share ( EPS ), and the company's expected growth. In general, the P/E ratio is higher for a company with a higher growth rate. Thus using just the P/E ratio would make high-growth companies appear overvalued relative to others. It is assumed that by dividing the P/E ratio by the earnings growth rate, the resulting ratio is better for comparing companies with different growth rates. The PEG ratio is considered to be a convenient approximation. It was popularized by Peter Lynch , who wrote in "One ...
Stockerblog - The Stock Market Blog: Green Stocks for Earth Day ...
It was twenty years ago, on April 22, 1970, when U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day, for environmental awareness and appreciation of the Earth. Earth Day, which is celebrated in over 175 countries every year, has inspired many countries to become environmentally conscious and to develop and produce alternative sources of energy, other than the polluting oil and coal fuels. Many of the alternative energy stocks have suffered in price during the last year, primarily due to reduced subsidies, higher costs, and increased competition. However, this may have created a buying opportunity, especially for investors who are ... market research, surveys and trends
Megasafe Investing Finding Undervalued Stocks 3
In "The Intelligent Investor", Benjamin Graham describes a formula he used to value stocks. He eschewed the more esoteric calculations and kept his formula pretty simple. In his words: "Our study of the various methods has led us to suggest a foreshortened and quite simple formula for the valuation of growth stocks, which is intended to produce figures fairly close to those resulting from the more refined mathematical calculations." The formula as described by Graham, is as follows: Value = Current (Normal) Earnings x (8.5 + (2 x Expected Annual Growth Rate) Where the Expected Annual Growth Rate "should ... market research, surveys and trends


Strategy Process Section 090 Blog: The Big, Big Brewer from Belgium.
All due respect to Budweiser, but Inbev is the king of beers. From its base in Leuven, Belgium, it sells more brew than any other company on the planet. With brands such as Stella Artois, Beck's and Labatt Blue, and operations spanning more than 130 countries, InBev sold the equivalent of about 12 billion six-packs in 2006. (It also markets soft drinks in Latin America and a few countries in Europe.) When it comes to stocks, of course, bigger isn't always better. But shareholders could be raising a glass to InBev in the years ahead. For starters, it has opportunities to cut costs. InBev was formed from the merger of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

This one’s a little bit different, since the Motley Fool is selling not a subscription necessarily, but a special report called “The NEW Rule Makers: 5 Power Stocks You’ll Never Want to Sell.” Rule Makers is an old term from the Motley Fool lexicon, they’re the ideal evolution from the “Rule Breakers” that Dave Gardner looks for in the Rule Breakers newsletter service (and before that, in his Rule Breakers Portfolio in the late 90s when the Fool really hit its stride and did well with picks like AOL, etc.). If you remember, the Gardners had a pretty popular book back in 2000 called Rule ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Profit With The Power Of Price-To-Earnings
Perhaps one of the most widely-used stock analysis tools is the price-to-earnings ratio, or P/E. This perpetual prophesier of profit has been used for ages by analysts and still remains one of the most relevant pieces of stock valuation. A simple P/E ratio can reveal the stock's real market value and how the valuation compares to its industry group or a benchmark like the S&P 500 Index. Investors will find that an understanding of this financial term is priceless in properly communicating to other investing professionals. What is P/E? A doughnut shop owner's business generates $10,000 in profit per year, and he is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What does EPS tell us about a company.? - Yahoo! Answers
What is the importance of the number of outstanding shares? Both companies had the same net earnings-so why does it matter how many shares of stock they have outstanding? Finally, how does this effect the stocks price? Is it simply because when this number is released that people arrive at an opinion of the company, which leads to the prices going up or down? Or is the actual price of a company partially dependent on the EPS? I'm trying to be as clear as I can with my question, if any clarity is needed, I will leave it as a follow up. Thanks again. The number of shares outstanding is important because stock prices are ...

Sorry, can't do it with Ford -- they have negative earnings, so the P/E ratio is meaningless. However, using IBM as an example, just go to the "Analyst Estimates" page under Yahoo!
