P/E
Price-Over-Earnings

Closing Price / Latest Audited Earnings per Share

The purpose of dividing the price with the net earnings is to show if the price is influenced by changes in its net earnings.

The PE ratio generally shows in multiples or number of times the market is willing to pay for a stock. It can also be interpreted as the number of years it takes the company at the current level of profitability to fully earn back the market price being paid. Negative earnings will result in a negative PE, which is not meaningful. Lower PE ratios are preferred to higher numbers within the same comparable industry or sub sector or group of competitors. A PE ratio by itself does not mean much, it has to be compared over a historical time series.

The PE Ratio of stocks have a historical high and low. This is frequently referred to as the PE band. During very buoyant and depressed periods, new highs or new lows may be registered. Other than such extraneous conditions, the PE of a stock tends to trade within a normal high-low range.

PAT
Profit After Tax

Profit after tax is often associated with net profit or net income. In accounting, net profit is equal to the gross profit minus overheads minus interest payable plus/minus one off items for a given time period. PAT can be fully retained by a company to be used in the business. However dividend is paid to the share holders from this residue. Here is how you reach net profit on a P&L (Profit & Loss) Statement:

1.Gross profit = Sales revenue - cost of sales and other direct costs
2.Operating profit (EBIT, earnings before interest and taxes) = Gross profit - overheads and other indirect costs
3.Pretax Profit (EBT, earnings before taxes) = Operating profit - one off items and redundancy payments, staff restructuring - interest payable
4.Net profit (PAT) = Pre-tax profit - tax
5.Retained earnings = Profit after tax (PAT) - Dividends
