  • P/E Ratio : 

    This is the price-to-earnings ratio. It is calculated by dividing the market price per share by the earnings registered in the last twelve months. It is the most common measure of how expensive a share is. Companies that are not profitable at all, i.e. those with negative earnings do not have a P/E ratio at all. Companies with very high P/E ratios are normally considered to be risky.
