Question

- Two companies are selling at P/E ratios of 20x forward estimates. One is growing EPS at 24%, the other at 20%. How would you decide which company is more attractive?

Answer #1

P/E ratio of both companies is 20x.

But the EPS of one is 24% and other is 20%.

Since the P/E ratio of both is same, selection should be made on the basis of EPS and Price.

1.EPS of 1st company is growing more i.e. this company is increasing its earning more for its shareholders in comparision to the other company.

2. Price=EPS * P/E

So the Price of 1st company is greater then the other company. (20*24%>20*20%)

And price symbolises what the market is willing to pay for the stock. So if the market is willing to pay more for the 1st company means the given first company is more attractive.

Two Companies, Gamma and Theta have justified forward P/E ratios
of 12.59x and 14.29x respectively. Their ROE and payout ratios are
:
Gamma = ROE 13.5% , Payout Ratio 45%
Theta = ROE 15% , Payout Ratio 50%
The required rate of return is 11%, If Gamma's payout ratio
increase to 55% and Theta's payout ratios decreases to 40%, what
would be the most likely resultant effect on their justified P/E
ratios ?
a. Gamma's P/E ratios will increase but...

Case Study
Google and P&G Swap Employees
The cultures of the two companies could not be more
different. Procter & Gamble (P&G) is notoriously
controlled, disciplined, scalable and rigid—so much so that
employees call themselves ‘Proctoids’. Google is just as famous for
its laid-back, unstandardised, free-flowing culture.
So what would cause these two large, successful examples
of a strong—yet dissimilar—corporate culture to decide to socialise
each another’s employees? One reason clearly is marketing: P&G
sees more of its future marketing...
