The forward P/E ratio (or forward price-to-earnings ratio) divides the current share price of a company by the estimated future (“forward”) earnings per share (EPS) of that company.  For valuation purposes, a forward P/E ratio is typically considered more relevant than a historical P/E ratio.

The formula to calculate the forward P/E ratio is the same as the regular P/E ratio formula, however, estimated (or forecasted) earnings per share are used instead of historical figures.

Forward P/E formula:

Forward P/E = Current Share Price / Estimated Future Earnings per Share
