Important terms to check while purchasing a stock

This Short Term Call was posted on Jun 11, 2008

1. P/E:
The P/E ratio (price-to-earnings ratio) of a stock (also called its “earnings multiple”, or simply “multiple”, “P/E”, or “PE”) is a measure of the price paid for a share relative to the annual income or profit earned by the firm per share.A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of income. It is a valuation ratio included in other financial ratios.The reciprocal of the P/E ratio is known as the earnings yield. Stock having a P/E less than 30 are said to be good investmets
2. EPS:
EPS. Total earnings divided by the number of shares outstanding. Companies often use a weighted average of shares outstanding over the reporting term. EPS can be calculated for the previous year (“trailing EPS”), for the current year (“current EPS”), or for the coming year (“forward EPS”). Note that last year’s EPS would be actual, while current year and forward year EPS would be estimates.
3.DVI (Sividend yield):
The yield a company pays out to its shareholders in the form of dividends. It is calculated by taking the amount of dividends paid per share over the course of a year and dividing by the stock’s price. For example, if a stock pays out $2 in dividends over the course of a year and trades at $40, then it has a dividend yield of 5%. Mature, well-established companies tend to have higher dividend yields, while young, growth-oriented companies tend to have lower ones, and most small growing companies don’t have a dividend yield at all because they don’t pay out dividends

    I think in the long run one should opt for Patni Computers as you can clearly see that this stock doesnot show steady downfalls when the sensex and nifty were outperforming.
    If anybody would buy it on dips around Rs-5 to 7 then it would certainly give a better return.
