The current fundamental data downloader gets several valuation metrics or ratios for stocks listed on US exchanges from the finviz website. Valuations ratios are measures of how expensive or cheap a stock or company is; they are used by analysts, traders and investors to assess the attractiveness of the company.
The different valuation metrics downloaded by this trading object are:
Market Capitalization: This is a measure of the company size.
P/E: The price to earnings ratio is the most popular valuation metrics and it is usually used to compare companies in the same sector or industry.
Forward P/E: The forward price to earnings ratio uses the estimated earnings for the next year instead of the current earnings number.
PEG: The PEG is another tool for stock valuation; it estimates a stock's value by dividing the P/E by the annual EPS growth.
P/S: The Price per Share ratio is either calculated by dividing the market capitalization by the revenues or by dividing the stock price by the sales per share.
P/B: The Price per book is a measure that compares the stock market value to its book value. The book value is the value of the company on its balance sheet.
P/C: The Price per cash compares the stock market value to its cash assets.
P/FCF: This is the Price/Free Cash Flow and it is a valuation measure that compares the company stock price to its annual free cash flow.
