PE ratio now shown day by day
« on: August 27, 2006, 01:19:54 AM »
Please note that the PE (Price to Earnings Ratio) is now being shown on each of the Company pages as part of the ENHANCED section. This indicator is being shown day by day, so for those that utilise this indicator, we can readily see how the ratio is changing as the price moves. As the ratio moves lower the share becomes cheaper and more attractive to buy. Negative values mean a loss is being incurred, rather than profit.

Also note that the formula is PRICE / EPS (Earnings Per Share). The value for EPS is the latest on file as shown under the FUNDAMENTAL section, as stated in the column heading.

Examples:

Enjoy.
Thank you,
The Management

OzSuper has now been showing the Earnings per Share and Price to Earnings figures on each of the company home pages. This facility has now grown into each of the daily trade pages, for each company. This means each day all company are showing the figures on a single page.

Naturally this is Sortable, Jumpable etc etc.

Have fun, this is now getting dangerously powerfull.

Further to the previous posts, explaining the display of these import fundamental indicators. A discussion of the values used is required. It should be noted that the most recent values are used. Even for what appears to be historical data.

A page showing the trading activity for a trading day, has its PE value (Price to Earnings ratio) calculated using the most recent EPS value (Earnings per Share). At first glance this may appear to be incorrect.

But remember that the earnings/share value is usually historic, where as doing it this way, as well as being easier provides an insight as the future trade is leading into, and as such, it shows a more meaningful figure than an old out-of-date value.

The earnings figure is of course only update with the companies disclosed results, and is never a real time value.


Values by date can still be seen on the company's home pages, if you wish to see how this value has recently changed.
Thanks, Ian.
