 # Leading P/E

Current EPS=\$5.5 Current Div Paid/sh = \$2.8 Required Return = 13% Expected constant g = 6.8% Leading P/E?

EPS = .51/(.13-.068) = 8.21 new one… your missing the price per share?

8.21?

.51 = (2.8/5.5) what is paid out!

Trailing P/E is based off historical data.

Payout ratio = 2.8/5.5 = 51% next years div. = 2.8 x 1.068 = 2.99 next years earnings = 2.99/0.51 = 5.86 [assuming payout ratio remains constant] this years stock price =2.99 / (0.13 - 0.068) = 48.22 therefore FWD P/E = 48.22 / 5.86 = 8.23

Super, Farina!

No probs. To answer your Q above, the trailing is just the current price of common equity divided by this years earnings, 8.76.
