Definition of price / earnings ratio (P / E)

The P / E ratio describes the relationship between the current share price and the annual profit per share. It describes how many years it takes for a company to generate the value of its shares as a profit.

 

Significance for the evaluation

The P / E ratio is an important key figure for assessing the earning power and development of a company compared to others. The lower the P / E ratio of a share, the cheaper the share appears. Low P / E stocks have historically generated higher returns.
