Global Fundamental Market Analysis Ratios

PRICE-TO-EARNINGS RATIO ANALYSIS

The first market ratio that I look at is the Price-to-earnings ratio or the P/E ratio .
This ratio enables me to gauge the relative value of a company.
It is measured by dividing the company’s stock price by its earnings per share:

Price-to-earnings ratio = stock price/ earnings per share

The price of a company’s stock reflects or give me an idea of the company’s ability to generate profits. The P/E ratio reveals the price that I must pay to capture a dollar of earnings .
A company’s P/E ratio is measured relative to the industry average or its peer group. If the P/E ratio of a company exceeds the P/E ratio of the industry, it is usually determined that the company is overvalued. If the P/E ratio of the company is less than the industry average, it is observed that the company might be undervalued. And if the P/E ratio of the company is equal to the industry average, the company is probably at its fair value.
There are instances when the P/E ratio has fallen below the industry average for good reason and the company is not considered undervalued.
Let us assume that a company has a market price per share of $50. If this company has earnings per share of $5, its price-to-earnings ratio is $50/$5 = 10. If the industry average is 18, then the company is undervalued. Again, there could be reasons for this, but at first glance, it appears that the company is undervalued. Now let assume that the industry average is 6, the company might be overvalued

Let us now look at a practical application of this very important ratio.

We'll look at Barratt Developments PLC's (LON: BDEV ) P/E ratio and reflect on what it tells us about the company's share price.
• Basic EPS (FY) = £0.7324
• Current Stock Price = £7.46

Price-to-earnings ratio = stock price/ earnings per share

Price-to-earnings ratio = £7.46/£0.7324= 10.186

Based on the calculation above, Barratt Developments’s P/E ratio is approximately: 10.20. That means that at current prices, I am paying £10.20 for every £1 in trailing yearly profits.
Barratt Developments's P/E is 10.2 which is below average (17.9) in the GB market. This means at a glance it is undervalued

Further analysis of the financial statements reveals the following:

• BDEV's debt to equity ratio (4.1%) is considered satisfactory
• BDEV's debt to equity ratio has reduced from 6.6% to 4.1% over the past 5 years
• BDEV's debt is well covered by operating cash flow (180.7%).
• BDEV's debt is well covered by operating cash flow (180.7%).

In light of the above trend analysis we will execute a bullish trade on Barratt Developments Plc ( BDEV )
