        Earnings Wiki:
        All about the P/E ratio
        The price-to-earnings ratio(P/E ratio)refers to the ratio of stock price to earnings per share, which equals the total market capitalization divided by the net profit.
        The P/E ratio is one of the well-known valuation metrics, which is generally used to measure the valuation of companies with stable earnings.
        ● Common Formula:
        P/E ratio = Market value per share /Earnings per share (EPS)
        EPS = (Net income - Preferred dividends) / Average outstanding common shares
        There are three variants of the PE ratio as they are based on different periods of net income:
        1. Static P/E ratio
        The static P/E ratio is calculated based on a company's performance over the past fiscal year. It's easy to calculate, but the result lags behind a bit.
        2. Trailing P/E ratio
        The trailing P/E ratio is a valuation based on the aggregate of a company's performance over the past 12 months. For instance, after a listed company announces its half-year report, the net income used for calculating the trailing PE ratio is the sum of the net income in this report and the same indicator in the second half of last year.
        3. Forward P/E ratio
        The forward P/E ratio is calculated using an estimate performance of net income in a future fiscal year. For instance, after a listed company announces a quarterly report, investors can multiply the quarterly net income by 4 to get an estimated annual figure on which the forward PE ratio is based.
        Investors can compare the P/E ratio of a company with the industry average P/E ratio or its own historical P/E ratio to decide whether the company's valuation is reasonable. One-time gains and losses should be excluded from the Net Income so that the adjusted P/E ratio calculated is more effective.
        Many factors may affect a stock's P/E ratio, such as a company's business model, profitability, and cash flow. Usually, a leading company in the industry may have a higher valuation than others.
