Example: Dividend yield Company A pays dividend of 20c (net) per share. The market price is 300c. What is the dividend yield? Assuming the tax credit is 20%. Solution: Earning per share (EPS) Dividend yield = Gross dividend per share X 100% Market price per share Earnings per share = _____________PBIT______________________ Weighted average number of ordinary shares

Example: The value of P/E ratio reflects the market’s appraisal of the share’s futur e prospects. It is an important ratio because it relates two key considerations for investors, the market price of a share and its earnings capacity. Example: Price earnings ratio Recently a company declared dividend of 12c per share. The share price is \$3.72 cum div and earnings for the most recent year were 30c per share. Calculate the P/E ratio. Solution: P/E ratio = MV ex div = EPS = Changes in EPS: the P/E and the share price An approach to assessing what share prices ought to be, which is often used in practice, is P/E ratio approach. The relationship between EPS and share price is measured by the P/E ratio. The P/E ratio does not vary much over time. If the EPS goes up or down , the share price should be expected to move up or down , the new share price will be the new EPS X constant P/E ratio . The higher the P/E ratio, the longer the payback period. The LOWER P/E ratio, the BETTER investment. Example: If a company had an EPS of 30c and a share price of \$3.60 in year 2007, its P/E ratio would be 12. If the current year EPS is 33c, expected P/E ratio would remain the same, the share price ought to gone up to 12*33c = \$3.96. Price earnings ratio = Market price of share/ Total market value of equity P/E EPS

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
