P/E ratio The P/E ratio tells analyst how much an investor in common stock pays per dollar of current earnings.
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 Electric Co.’s P/OP ratio decreased from 2017 to 2018 but then slightly increased from 2018 to 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. General Electric Co.’s P/S ratio decreased from 2017 to 2018 but then increased from 2018 to 2019 exceeding 2017 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. General Electric Co.’s P/BV ratio increased from 2017 to 2018 and from 2018 to 2019.
