Suggested Money Lesson
Give an introductory lesson about stocks to
your students.
Explain that one way that they can save their
money is to invest, and one way that people invest is to buy
stocks.
A price earning ratio, or "P/E" for short, is a commonly used way to
simplistically value a company (determine what a company's stock should be worth). It is simply a company's stock price divided by a company's earnings per share.
The price to earnings ratio, also known as "P/E", is calculated by dividing the company's stock price by the company's earnings per share, or "EPS".



WORKSHEET Instructions
