Piesat Information Technology Co., Ltd.'s (SHSE:688066) P/E Still Appears To Be Reasonable

Simply Wall St ·  {{timeTz}}

With a price-to-earnings (or "P/E") ratio of 69.4x Piesat Information Technology Co., Ltd. (SHSE:688066) may be sending very bearish signals at the moment, given that almost half of all companies in China have P/E ratios under 32x and even P/E's lower than 20x are not unusual. Although, it's not wise to just take the P/E at face value as there may be an explanation why it's so lofty.

Piesat Information Technology certainly has been doing a good job lately as it's been growing earnings more than most other companies. The P/E is probably high because investors think this strong earnings performance will continue. If not, then existing shareholders might be a little nervous about the viability of the share price.

What Are Growth Metrics Telling Us About The High P/E?

Piesat Information Technology's P/E ratio would be typical for a company that's expected to deliver very strong growth, and importantly, perform much better than the market.

If we review the last year of earnings growth, the company posted a terrific increase of 51%. The strong recent performance means it was also able to grow EPS by 175% in total over the last three years. Therefore, it's fair to say the earnings growth recently has been superb for the company.

Looking ahead now, EPS is anticipated to climb by 38% each year during the coming three years according to the five analysts following the company. That's shaping up to be materially higher than the 27% per year growth forecast for the broader market.

In light of this, it's understandable that Piesat Information Technology's P/E sits above the majority of other companies. Apparently shareholders aren't keen to offload something that is potentially eyeing a more prosperous future.

The Final Word

While the price-to-earnings ratio shouldn't be the defining factor in whether you buy a stock or not, it's quite a capable barometer of earnings expectations.

We've established that Piesat Information Technology maintains its high P/E on the strength of its forecast growth being higher than the wider market, as expected. Right now shareholders are comfortable with the P/E as they are quite confident future earnings aren't under threat. It's hard to see the share price falling strongly in the near future under these circumstances.

Having said that, be aware Piesat Information Technology is showing 3 warning signs in our investment analysis, and 1 of those is a bit concerning.
