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. UnitedHealth Group Inc.’s P/E ratio increased from Q3 2020 to Q4 2020 and from Q4 2020 to Q1 2021.
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. UnitedHealth Group Inc.’s P/OP ratio increased from Q3 2020 to Q4 2020 and from Q4 2020 to Q1 2021.
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. UnitedHealth Group Inc.’s P/S ratio increased from Q3 2020 to Q4 2020 and from Q4 2020 to Q1 2021.
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. UnitedHealth Group Inc.’s P/BV ratio increased from Q3 2020 to Q4 2020 and from Q4 2020 to Q1 2021.
