This BSY PE ratio history page last updated 8/10/2023
On this page we presented the BSY PE Ratio History information for Bentley Systems' stock.
The average BSY PE ratio history based on using the annualized quarterly earnings result at each measurement period (for the "E" in the PE calculation; and the closing price on earnings date as the "P") is 54.8. Meanwhile, using the trailing twelve month (TTM) quarterly earnings result as our method of calculation the "E" value at each measurement period, the average BSY PE ratio history based on this TTM earnings result method is 54.7.
Let's now compare this BSY PE ratio history result, against the recent PE: when this page was posted on 8/9/2023, the most recent closing price for BSY had been 47.85, and the most recent quarterly earnings result, annualized, was 0.96. Meanwhile, the most recent TTM earnings summed to 0.87. From these numbers, we calculate the recent BSY PE on 8/9/2023 based on annualized quarterly EPS was 49.8. Based on BSY's history, that recent PE is low relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 9.1% lower than the historical average PE across our data set for Bentley Systems. Looking at the recent BSY PE on 8/9/2023 based on TTM EPS, we calculate the ratio at 55.0. Based on BSY's history, that recent PE is elevated relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 0.5% higher than the historical average PE across our Bentley Systems data set with TTM EPS used in the calculation at each period.
Another interesting BSY PE ratio history calculation we look at is to take the median earnings per share of the last four quarters for BSY, and then annualize the resulting value... with that annualized number then being used in the PE calculation. To walk through this math for BSY, we start with the past four EPS numbers and we first sort them from lowest to highest: 0.19, 0.19, 0.24, and 0.25. We then toss out the highest and lowest result, and then take the average of those two middle numbers — 0.19 and 0.24 — which gives us the median of 0.21. Basically the way to think about this 0.21 number is this: for the trailing four earnings reports, 0.21 marks the "middle ground" number where BSY has reported a value higher than 0.21 half the time, and has reported a value lower than 0.21 half the time. Annualizing that median value then gets us to 0.84/share, which we use as the denominator in our next PE calculation. With 47.85 as the numerator (as of 8/9/2023), the calculation is then 47.85 / 0.84 = 57.0 as the BSY PE ratio as of 8/9/2023, based on that annualized median value we calculated.
