Many analysts look at the price-to-earnings ratio and current share price to determine a stock’s value. While current share price offers a simple way to evaluate a company’s value, the trailing price-to-earnings ratio can provide a more complete picture. For example, American Public Education’s stock is currently trading at 11x its trailing price-to-earnings ratio. This ratio is an important metric to look at because it gives us a better picture of the company’s performance.
