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. Accenture PLC's P/E ratio declined from 2015 to 2016 but then increased from 2016 to 2017 exceeding 2015 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. Accenture PLC's P/OP ratio declined from 2015 to 2016 but then increased from 2016 to 2017 exceeding 2015 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. Accenture PLC's P/S ratio increased from 2015 to 2016 and from 2016 to 2017.
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. Accenture PLC's P/BV ratio declined from 2015 to 2016 but then slightly increased from 2016 to 2017.
