Price-to-earnings ratio (price-earnings ratio) is the valuation ratio of a company that measures its current share price in relation to earnings per share (EPS). The price-earnings ratio is sometimes also known as the price multiplier or the earnings multiplier.
 
Forward rate to earnings
These two types of EPS metrics are a factor in the most common types of P / E ratios: forward return and P / E ratio. The third and least popular variation uses the sum of the last two actual quarters and estimates for the next two quarters.
[rtl]توصيات الذهب[/rtl]
 
P / E uses future (or leading) earnings guidance rather than trailing numbers. This forward-looking indicator, sometimes called the "Estimated Profit Rate", is useful for comparing current earnings with future earnings and helps provide a clearer picture of what profits will look like - without other accounting changes and adjustments.
[rtl]توصيات الذهب[/rtl]
 
However, there are problems inherent in the forward price-to-earnings scale - that is, firms can reduce earnings in order to overcome the price-to-earnings estimate when announcing next-quarter earnings. Other companies may overestimate them and later adjust them with their next earnings announcement. Moreover, outside analysts may also provide estimates that may differ from the company’s estimates, creating confusion.
 
Trailing price to earnings
The delinquent profit / loss price is based on past performance by dividing the current share price by the total EPS earnings over the past twelve months. It is the most popular price / return measure because it is the most objective - assuming the company accurately reported earnings. Some investors prefer to look at the P / E ratio because they do not trust another individual's earnings estimates. But late P / E also has its share of shortcomings - that is, the company's past performance does not indicate future behavior.
[rtl]توصيات العملات [/rtl]
 
Thus investors should commit money based on the strength of future earnings, not the past. The fact that the EPS number remains constant, while stock prices fluctuate, is also an issue. If a major event for a company causes the share price to rise or fall dramatically, then the late price / return will be less reflective of these changes.
 
The price-to-earnings delinquent ratio will change as the company's share price moves, as earnings are only released every quarter while the shares are traded day in and day out. As a result, some investors prefer futures contracts P / E. If the forward P / E ratio is lower than the P / E ratio, then analysts are expecting increased profits; If the forward P / E is higher than the current price-earnings ratio, analysts are expecting a drop in profits.

Rating from P / E.
The price-earnings ratio or P / E is one of the most widely used stock analysis tools that investors and analysts use to determine a stock's valuation. In addition to showing whether a company's stock is overvalued or undervalued, P / E can reveal how the stock valuation compares to its industry group or a benchmark like the S&P 500.
[rtl]توصيات الفوركس[/rtl]
Basically, the price-earnings ratio refers to the dollar amount an investor can expect to invest in a company in order to obtain one dollar of that company's profits. This is why P / E is sometimes referred to as a price multiplier because it shows how much investors are willing to pay each dollar of profits. If the company is currently trading at a P / E multiplier of 20, the explanation is that the investor is willing to pay $ 20 for $ 1 in current earnings.
 
The price-to-earnings ratio helps investors determine the market value of a share compared to the company's earnings. In short, the P / E ratio shows what the market is willing to pay today for a share based on its past or future earnings. A higher dividend price may mean that the share price is high relative to earnings and may be overrated. On the contrary, a decrease in price may indicate profitability which indicates that the current share price is low in relation to earnings.
 
Example of a P / E ratio
As a historical example, let's calculate Walmart Stores Inc.'s P / E ratio. (WMT) As of November 14, 2017, when the company's share price closed at $ 91.09.2, the company's earnings for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2017 were $ 13.64 billion, and the number of shares outstanding was 3.1 billion. Earnings per share can be calculated as $ 13.64 billion / 3.1 billion = $ 4.40.3
 
Thus, Walmart's P / E ratio is $ 91.09 / $ 4.40 = 20.70 times.
