The Price-to-Earnings Ratio (PE Ratio) compares a company's current share price to its earnings per share.
A company's PE Ratio provides a rough guide on its "value". The metric can be used to see a company's historical trends over time, or act as a benchmark against other companies.
PE Ratio Formula
= Share Price / Earnings per Share
Why does the PE Ratio differ between providers?
Data vendors (e.g. Morningstar, Bloomberg, etc.) report figures in different ways. For example, earnings can be recorded as basic, diluted, trailing twelve months (TTM), include abnormals, etc. Earnings in USD can be converted at today's exchange rate or End-of-Financial-Year (EOFY).
Unless researching a specific company, the PE Ratio is best used as a filtering and comparison tool.
