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. Merck & Co. Inc.'s P/E ratio increased from 2015 to 2016 and from 2016 to 2017.

Inc.'s P/OP ratio increased from 2015 to 2016 but then slightly declined from 2016 to 2017 not reaching 2015 level.
