Price to Earnings Less Cash TTM

View Financial Glossary Index

Definition

Price to earnings (P/E) ratio less cash per share.

Let's say a company has significant cash. By purchasing a stake, you are purchasing two components, the company's business operational assets and its cash. Subtracting cash per share from P/E answers the question, "What is the adjusted P/E ratio of the operational assets without the cash?"
