Market Value per Share / Earnings per Share (EPS)
For example, if a company is currently trading at $43 a share and earnings over the last 12 months were $1.95 per share, the P/E ratio for the stock would be 22.05 ($43/$1.95). In general, a high P/E suggests that investors are expecting higher earnings growth in the future compared to companies with a lower P/E.
The ratio for this is Annual Dividend Per Share divided by Price Per Share.
