Valuation 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. Cisco Systems Inc.’s P/E ratio increased from Q1 2020 to Q2 2020 but then slightly decreased from Q2 2020 to Q3 2020 not reaching Q1 2020 level.
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. Cisco Systems Inc.’s P/OP ratio increased from Q1 2020 to Q2 2020 but then decreased significantly from Q2 2020 to Q3 2020.
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. Cisco Systems Inc.’s P/S ratio increased from Q1 2020 to Q2 2020 but then slightly decreased from Q2 2020 to Q3 2020 not reaching Q1 2020 level.
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. Cisco Systems Inc.’s P/BV ratio decreased from Q1 2020 to Q2 2020 and from Q2 2020 to Q3 2020.
