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. Danaher Corp.’s P/E ratio declined from Q2 2018 to Q3 2018 but then increased from Q3 2018 to Q4 2018 exceeding Q2 2018 level.

Sales are also more stable than earnings and never negative. Danaher Corp.’s P/S ratio declined from Q2 2018 to Q3 2018 but then increased from Q3 2018 to Q4 2018 exceeding Q2 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.
