About the PEG Ratio Page:
Investors are always looking for companies with good growth prospects selling at attractive prices. One popular statistic used to identify such stocks is the PEG ratio - which is simply the Price Earnings ratio divided by the growth rate. The forecasted growth rate (based on the consensus of professional analysts) and the forecasted earnings over the next 12 months are used to calculate the PEG. In theory, the lower the PEG ratio the better - implying that you are paying less for future earnings growth.
Why Investors Care
Investors, especially value-oriented investors, pay close attention to this ratio. The theory is that all an investor is really buying is earning growth. Paying too much for that growth, when the P/E rate exceeds the growth rate, is considered a negative. Investors typically look for the growth rate to exceed the P/E ratio, the more the better.
