Fundamentals and health

A measure of the companys worth on the stock market. We display the previous closing share price multiplied by the number of shares in issue. Market capitalisation £4,949.00
The number of shares a company has in circulation, in millions. Shares in issue 1,000.00
The main valuation used by investors and a way of gauging whether a companys share price is cheap or expensive compared to competitors. You get PE by dividing the share price by the earnings per share (EPS). Our figure is last basic unadjusted - reported - annual EPS / current share price x 100. Companies also quote adjusted EPS figures to remove the effect of one-off exceptional figures from the profit figures. There is debate among investors as to whether this should be used. We use basic EPS – the purest figure. PE ratio 6.8
PEG ratio n/a
An important ratio for showing how much profit after tax and other deductions (net profit) is actually being earned per share. You divide the net profit by the number of shares in issue. Expressed in pence per share. Looking at whether the EPS is rising or falling over time is one of the most important indicators of whether a company is really making money for its shareholders. Our figure is undiluted, meaning it is not adjusted for exceptional costs. EPS 16.10p
Earnings per share growth illustrates the growth of earning per share over the last two reporting periods. It helps investors identify stocks that are increasing or decreasing in profitability. A minus sign indicates negative growth. EPS growth -36
Return on capital employed measures a companys profitability in relation to how much capital is invested in the business. Generally, the higher the figure the better but with all these ratios it is best to compare companies from the same sector. A high double digit figure may mean a company has an advantage over its competitors because of a unique product but an oil company, for example, will have higher capital outlay than an online retailer. Our formula: [Pre-tax profit / (total assets – short-term liabilities)] * 100 ROCE 3
Also known as the acid test ratio, its a quick guide to how well a company can pay its short-term debts. Above 1 is considered healthy. A ratio of 1.5 would mean the company has £1.50 of liquid (accessible) assets to cover each £1 of debt (current liabilities). Formula: Current assets minus inventory / current liabilities. Quick ratio 0.96
Indicates whether a company can convert assets into cash to pay its debts within the next 12 months. It is calculated as current assets / current liabilities for the same period but will display as 0 for companies such as banks that dont distinguish between short and long-term liabilities. Current ratio 0.96
The amount of money a company paid to a shareholder for each share they own over the past 12 months, expressed in pence. Total dividends per share 10.00p
The dividends paid per share over the past 12 months (interim plus final) as a percentage of the share price. Our figure includes recurring special dividends. Dividend yield 5.6
The number of times the dividend could have been paid out from net profits. It is a good indicator of the companys ability to pay the dividend and its level of generosity. Formula: earnings per share / dividends per share. More than 2 is considered healthy, less than 1.5 may hint that a dividend is at risk of being cut. Dividend cover 2.61
Dividend per share growth -70
