  • Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 75.74594102982668 is higher than its current P/E ratio of 25.29, implying that analysts are expecting a decrease in earnings.
  • The company's price/earnings-to-growth ratio (PEG Ratio), a widely used indicator of a stock's true value while also factoring in expected earnings growth, currently stands at 0.25.
