P/E ratio The P/E ratio tells analyst how much an investor in common stock pays per dollar of current earnings. Facebook Inc.’s P/E ratio increased from 2018 to 2019 but then slightly decreased from 2019 to 2020 not reaching 2018 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. Facebook Inc.’s P/OP ratio increased from 2018 to 2019 but then slightly decreased from 2019 to 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. Facebook Inc.’s P/S ratio decreased from 2018 to 2019 but then increased from 2019 to 2020 exceeding 2018 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. Facebook Inc.’s P/BV ratio increased from 2018 to 2019 but then slightly decreased from 2019 to 2020.
