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. Coca-Cola Co.’s P/E ratio increased from Q1 2019 to Q2 2019 but then declined significantly from Q2 2019 to Q3 2019.
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. Coca-Cola Co.’s P/OP ratio increased from Q1 2019 to Q2 2019 and from Q2 2019 to Q3 2019.
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. Coca-Cola Co.’s P/S ratio increased from Q1 2019 to Q2 2019 but then slightly declined from Q2 2019 to Q3 2019.
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. Coca-Cola Co.’s P/BV ratio increased from Q1 2019 to Q2 2019 and from Q2 2019 to Q3 2019.

Valuation ratio Description The company
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. Coca-Cola Co.’s P/S ratio increased from Q1 2019 to Q2 2019 but then slightly declined from Q2 2019 to Q3 2019.
