Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research

Basic Investing Metrics: Price-to-sales (P/S).

The calculation for P/S takes a company’s market capitalization (number of shares outstanding x share price) and divides by its total revenue. The interpretation of P/S is quite similar to P/E as it tells investors how much the market values every dollar of a company’s sales. Similarly, to P/E investors typically want to target a low P/S ratio.

Although P/E is typically the most widely utilized of the three ratios, P/S displays some advantages. For example, if an investor is analyzing a high growth company that is operating at a loss or has recently suffered a setback in earnings, P/S can provide a better insight.
