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. salesforce.com inc.’s P/E ratio decreased from Q4 2020 to Q1 2021 but then slightly increased from Q1 2021 to Q2 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. salesforce.com inc.’s P/OP ratio decreased from Q4 2020 to Q1 2021 but then increased from Q1 2021 to Q2 2021 exceeding Q4 2020 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. salesforce.com inc.’s P/S ratio decreased from Q4 2020 to Q1 2021 but then increased from Q1 2021 to Q2 2021 exceeding Q4 2020 level.

Sales per share = (RevenuesQ2 2021 + RevenuesQ1 2021 + RevenuesQ4 2020 + RevenuesQ3 2020) ÷ No. shares of common stock outstanding
= (5,151,000,000 + 4,865,000,000 + 4,851,000,000 + 4,513,000,000) ÷ 910,000,000 = 21.30

3 Closing price as at the filing date of salesforce.com inc.’s Quarterly or Annual Report.

4 Q2 2021 Calculation
P/S ratio = Share price ÷ Sales per share
= 271.10 ÷ 21.30 = 12.73

Valuation ratio Description The company
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. salesforce.com inc.’s P/S ratio decreased from Q4 2020 to Q1 2021 but then increased from Q1 2021 to Q2 2021 exceeding Q4 2020 level.
