Past earnings reports are always important for investors to study, because to understand where a company is going, one must first know where it is coming from. But perhaps equally important is a stock's valuation — and a popular way to measure valuation is the ratio comparing the stock's trading price against its actual earnings. Hence the term "PE Ratio" which stands for price to earnings ratio.

Knowing a stock's current PE ratio is one thing, but having the expanded context of also knowing that stock's historical PE ratio can allow an investor to compare today's PE against the past, producing a far more illuminated view of the current valuation level.

Here at our aim is to make it simple for you to research past PE information: type any ticker symbol or company name into the box in the upper right, and you can quickly navigate to the site page for that stock and learn about its historical PE ratio.

Video: Understanding PE Ratios

Understanding the historical context of a given company's current stock market valuation can be incredibly important for self directed investors to study when doing due diligence. Because knowing the current PE ratio of a given stock is one thing; being able to compare that ratio against the past is another: is the current PE elevated relative to prior history? Is the current PE a massive discount compared to the past? And what has happened to the actual earnings per share over history?

Furthermore, an investor can study a given company's peers — where do comparable companies trade relative to their earnings, and what does the historical PE ratio information for those peer companies look like? The answer to those questions can help inform a view as to whether the stock in question is expensive or cheap relative to those peers.

That's why we bring you to make it easy for investors to investigate the past price to earnings information for any stock in our coverage universe. Just type any ticker symbol (or the company name if you don't know its trading symbol) into the top right menu bar, to dig into that stock's historical PE ratio information, based on past per-share earnings data and past stock price data.
