How to boost your stock market returns using the price-earnings ratio

The price-earnings ratio, or P/E, is the most popular valuation metric in stock market investing. For most people, it's a shorthand way of deciding how the market regards a company. But it's also tricky concept, full of pitfalls. For example, a company with a low P/E may either be an ignored but attractive investment opportunity or a company which is deservedly cheap because it is in business difficulty.

This book is both a comprehensive handbook on the intricacies of P/E and a practical guide on how you can use, adjust and improve the price-earnings ratio to boost your stock returns:

  • The different ways earnings and P/Es are calculated

  • How to interpret the P/E and understand what the market is telling you about a company's prospects

  • The limitations of the P/E – and how to set them right

  • How to improve the P/E ratio and turn it into an even more powerful predictor of future returns, while controlling for risk

  • The rich investing and trading insights that decomposing the P/E offer

  • How the long-term P/E increases the traditional P/E's power to predict future returns

  • How P/E helps you identify outperforming stocks

  • How combining P/E with measures of high financial stability lead to outstanding and reliable investment results

  • How famous investors Ben Graham, Joel Greenblatt, and Joseph Piotroski use the P/E to pick stocks to invest in.

The book presents an expert summary of past and contemporary research on the P/E and reveals innovative investment strategies for boosting your stock returns using the price-earnings ratio.
