On this page we presented the CNC PE Ratio History information for Centene' stock. The average CNC 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 19.2. Meanwhile, using the trailing twelve month (TTM) quarterly earnings result as our method of calculation the "E" value at each measurement period, the average CNC PE ratio history based on this TTM earnings result method is 19.9. Note: any PE calculations involving negative earnings were discarded as not meaningful.

Let's now compare this CNC PE ratio history result, against the recent PE: when this page was posted on 10/26/2022, the most recent closing price for CNC had been 84.80, and the most recent quarterly earnings result, annualized, was 5.2. Meanwhile, the most recent TTM earnings summed to 5.91. From these numbers, we calculate the recent CNC PE on 10/26/2022 based on annualized quarterly EPS was 16.3. Based on CNC's history, that recent PE is low relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 15.1% lower than the historical average PE across our data set for Centene. Looking at the recent CNC PE on 10/26/2022 based on TTM EPS, we calculate the ratio at 14.3. Based on CNC's history, that recent PE is low relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 28.1% lower than the average PE across our Centene data set with TTM EPS used in the calculation at each period.

Another interesting CNC PE ratio history calculation we look at is to take the median earnings per share of the last four quarters for CNC, and then annualize the resulting value... with that annualized number then being used in the PE calculation. To walk through this math for CNC, we start with the past four EPS numbers and we first sort them from lowest to highest: 1.01, 1.30, 1.77, and 1.83. We then toss out the highest and lowest result, and then take the average of those two middle numbers — 1.30 and 1.77 — which gives us the median of 1.54. Basically the way to think about this 1.54 number is this: for the trailing four earnings reports, 1.54 marks the "middle ground" number where CNC has reported a value higher than 1.54 half the time, and has reported a value lower than 1.54 half the time. Annualizing that median value then gets us to 6.16/share, which we use as the denominator in our next PE calculation. With 84.80 as the numerator (as of 10/26/2022), the calculation is then 84.80 / 6.16 = 13.8 as the CNC PE ratio as of 10/26/2022, based on that annualized median value we calculated.

For self directed investors doing their due diligence on CNC or any other given stock, valuation analysis for CNC can greatly benefit from studying the past earnings and resulting PE ratio history calculations. This type of study can help inform an analysis as to whether the earnings trajectory over time and current versus historical average PE ratios justify the current stock market value.
