Price to Earnings or PE ratio = Current share price / Earnings per share (earnings per share excludes extraordinary Items)
All ratios are calculated on a trailing 12 months (TTM) basis.
This means the last twelve months (not the company’s financial year) is compared to the same period in the past.
We do this to make sure that the screener data includes the latest, most up to date, financial results of the company.
