Investment analysis factor used to determine if a stock is appropriately priced when compared to its financial situation. It is usually calculated by dividing the stock price by the earnings per share for a particular period. For example, a stock price of $5 for a company earning $1 per share is said to be selling at a multiple of five (or five times earnings). Generally, the higher the market multiple is, the more optimistic the market is regarding the company's future.
