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. General Dynamics Corp.’s P/E ratio declined from Q3 2018 to Q4 2018 but then increased from Q4 2018 to Q1 2019 not reaching Q3 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. General Dynamics Corp.’s P/OP ratio declined from Q3 2018 to Q4 2018 but then increased from Q4 2018 to Q1 2019 not reaching Q3 2018 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. General Dynamics Corp.’s P/S ratio declined from Q3 2018 to Q4 2018 and from Q4 2018 to Q1 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. General Dynamics Corp.’s P/BV ratio increased from Q3 2018 to Q4 2018 and from Q4 2018 to Q1 2019.
