Forward Price to Earnings

Forward Price to Earnings

The price of a security per share at a given time divided by its projected earnings per share over the coming year. A forward P/E ratio is a way to help determine a security's stock valuation (that is, the fair value of a stock in a perfect market). It is also a measure of expected, but not realized, growth. See also: P/E, PEG.
