Price-to-Sales Ratio = Market Cap / Sales
The Price-To-Sales ratio or PS ratio tells you how expensive a company is relative to its total sales. The formula is calculated in two different ways: divide the company’s market capitalization by its revenue or divide the current stock price by revenue-per-share. Because this ratio is being calculated with live price information, you can also watch it in real-time on the chart as we’ve shown in this example above.

Keep in mind that Financial Ratios are not perfect. They are also not a buy or sell recommendation. Instead they are shortcuts, ways to quickly evaluate a company, compare its underlying fundamentals, and study that company relative to other companies. You also must remember that financial metrics can change quickly with a single report. A company’s future expectations are also just as important. A company like Apple might have a high PE ratio, but if they’re building and growing revenue into the future, their PR ratio could come down over time.
