Term Main definition

The price-earnings ratio (P/E ratio) is a valuation metric of the company's earnings relative to its share price. A high P/E ratio means that investors are willing to pay more money per dollar of earnings. However, keep in mind that P/E ratio's differ greatly from industry to industry.

P/E ratio = Share price / Earnings per share
