  2. To figure the price/earnings ratio (PE), divide the current price by the earnings per share. I agree that site is confusing, but apparently the chart shows the earnings per share for the last 4 years. Use the 2009 earnings in the left column.

    Basic EPS Total -0.32 -0.33 -0.22 -0.90

    Today's closing price was $0.56 so the current PE ration is -1.75. Many analysts just report "no meaningful figure (NMF) for a negative PE.

    That's all there is to figuring the PE ration. You don't need to know the number of outstanding shares.
