Sales are also more stable than earnings and never negative. Facebook Inc.’s P/S ratio decreased from Q4 2019 to Q1 2020 but then increased from Q1 2020 to Q2 2020 exceeding Q4 2019 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.
