Ratio Description The company
P/E ratio The P/E ratio tells analyst how much an investor in common stock pays per dollar of current earnings. Adobe Systems Inc.'s P/E ratio declined from Q4 2017 to Q1 2018 and from Q1 2018 to Q2 2018.
P/OP ratio Because P/E ratio is calculated using net income, the ratio can be sensitive to nonrecurring earnings and capital structure, analysts may use price to operating profit. Adobe Systems Inc.'s P/OP ratio declined from Q4 2017 to Q1 2018 but then increased from Q1 2018 to Q2 2018 not reaching Q4 2017 level.
P/S ratio An rationale for the P/S ratio is that sales, as the top line in an income statement, are generally less subject to distortion or manipulation than other fundamentals such as EPS or book value. Sales are also more stable than earnings and never negative. Adobe Systems Inc.'s P/S ratio increased from Q4 2017 to Q1 2018 and from Q1 2018 to Q2 2018.
P/BV ratio The P/BV ratio is interpreted as an indicator of market judgment about the relationship between a company's required rate of return and its actual rate of return. Adobe Systems Inc.'s P/BV ratio increased from Q4 2017 to Q1 2018 and from Q1 2018 to Q2 2018.
