## Equity Valuation

by Patrick Fonce, 2478 days ago

Price to earnings, PEG ratio, price to cash flow, price to book and price to sales are fundamental or valuation ratios used by analysts and investors in equity valuation to determine how cheap or expensive a stock is.

Valuation ratios are generally calculated by dividing the stock price by a measure of value.
For example, the price-to-earnings, which is one of the most popular valuation ratios, is calculated by taking the stock price and dividing it by the earnings per share or EPS of the last 12 months.

Here is a list of the fundamental or valuation ratios downloaded by the equity valuation object:

P/E (Trailing 12 Mo): The Price-to-Earnings, also called PE ratio or PER compares a share price to the profits made by a stock share.

P/E (F1): This ratio is similar to the PE ratio described above. However, instead of using the trailing 12 months earnings per share (EPS), it uses the consensus estimate of the EPS for the current fiscal year.

P/E (F2): This ratio uses the consensus estimate of the EPS for the next fiscal year.

PEG Ratio: The PEG ratio is calculated as follow: P/E F1 ratio divided by the long-term growth consensus estimate. A company that has a PEG value lower than one is considered to be undervalue, while a company that has a PEG value higher than one is considered to be overvalued.

Price/Cash Flow: The price-to-cash flow ratio (P/CF) compares the stock share price to the amount of cash flow per share generated by a company. Because the reported earnings can be manipulated easier than that the cash flow, traders usually prefer this ratio to the price/earnings ratio.

Price/Book: This is also a very popular valuation ratio and it compares a stock share price to the value of a company's assets.

Price/Sales: The Price-To-Sales ratio or P/S compares the company market value to its sales. As with the price-to-cash flow ratio, this ratio is less subject to manipulation and therefore used and considered more reliable by many investors. It is calculated by dividing the revenue or net sales per share by the stock price.
