Just a reminder that if you want to keep up to date with my recent blogs, you will need to subscribe to my new site http://valueanalysis.wordpress.com. Unfortunately when I migrated site from this one, there was an issue with the WordPress export tool, and it didnt bring my subscribers over. According to WordPress support, the only way to fix this now is for you to re-subscribe to my new site. Pretty poor really, but what can you do?
To subscribe to the new site, open the link http://valueanalysis.wordpress.com, scroll down until you see the “Sign me up” button. It doesn’t take long, you only need to enter your email address.

With both PE ratio and other market multiple ratios, its important to remember that they are “relative” ratios, so they are generally used to compare a company ratio to similar market multiple ratios of companies in the same sector, different sectors and the overall market ratio.
