P/E ratio

The price-earnings ratio (P/E ratio) is the quotient from the current share price and the annual profit of the company per share. The lower the P/E ratio, the "cheaper" the share. The P/E ratio reflects the expectations of the investors with regard to the future profit growth i.e. the higher the expected profit growth, the higher the P/E ratio.
