The P/E ratio (price-to-earnings ratio) of a stock is used to measure the price paid per share against the profit earned by the company on a per share basis. The higher the P/E ratio, the more investors are willing to pay for each dollar of earnings the company generates. A high P/E ratio indicates an abundance of investor optimism for that sock.

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.

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 ...
Do Intel's Record Earnings Signal a New Tech Buying Boom ...
suggest that companies are starting to loosen up a bit on tech spending. Intel did well in the second quarter because companies are finally replacing their four- and five-year-old PCs. This replacement cycle should bid up the stocks of other PC makers such as Dell ( DELL ) and Hewlett Packard ( HPQ ) as well as makers in Asia, such as Acer. This should not come as a huge surprise, insofar as Forrester Research predicted an increase in business tech spending in 2010 after a decline in 2009. But is it too late to buy into this tech rebound? And how sustainable is this earnings growth? In short, it's not too late to get a ... market research, surveys and trends

You own in your portfolio a company that has strong fundamentals; you have a good profit in the stock, and they report earnings, and the stock drops 21 percent. Do you: (A) panic and sell out of the stock because it seems like everyone else is selling and there must be something wrong, or (B) do you take a deep breath, relax, and wait to read the results of the quarter to see why it dropped -- and is it still a company worth holding or not? Well, I'm sure you know the answer is B, but I'm also sure you have probably done A.

Even With All Its Profits, Microsoft Has a Popularity Problem
In the most recent three months, Microsoft earned $4.52 billion, versus Apple’s $3.25 billion and Google’s $1.8 billion. But, dear investors, where is the love for this beaten-down company? Frank X.

In a blog post on June 25 titled “Microsoft by the Numbers,” he compared Microsoft’s record in various business categories with that of competitors. Unfortunately, by trying to argue that Microsoft is doing well in all areas, including those dominated by Apple and Google, Mr. Shaw fails to show ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What's the “PEG” ratio? - Yahoo! Answers
The P/E is the most usual way to compare the relative value of stocks based on earnings since you calculate it by taking the current price of the stock and divide it by the Earnings Per Share (EPS). This helps identify if a stock's price is high or low relative to its earnings. Some will say a company with a high P/E is overpriced and they may be correct. A high P/E may warn you that traders have raised a stock's price past the point where any acceptable near term growth is feasible. But, a high P/E may also signal that the company still has strong growth prospects in the future, which could predict an even ...
