How should the GEN historical PE ratio be determined?
Realizing that PE stands for Price to Earnings ratio, we need two values to compute it: stock price and earnings per share. The stock price at any given date is a known historical value, but what about the earnings number to use?

✔️Accepted answer: There are a number of different approaches when it comes to calculating a historical PE ratio for a company like Gen Digital Inc. - Common Stock. We like to take our measurements on each of the past quarterly earnings reports. That only leaves the question of whether the earnings number at that quarterly report should be used on an annualized basis, or some other method. We approach this question using three different methods, on this GEN Historical PE Ratio page.

What is the average historical PE for GEN based on annualized quarterly earnings?
As we look back through earnings history, what is the resulting PE calculation if at each measurement period we use that quarter's earnings result annualized?

✔️Accepted answer: The GEN historical PE ratio using the annualized quarterly earnings method works out to 14.7.

What is the average historical PE for GEN based on trailing twelve month earnings?
As we look back through earnings history, what is the resulting PE calculation if at each measurement period we use the trailing twelve months combined earnings result in the calculation?

✔️Accepted answer: The GEN historical PE ratio using the TTM earnings method works out to 25.2.

What is the average historical PE for GEN based on median TTM earnings?
As we look back through earnings history, what is the resulting PE calculation if at each measurement period we use the median earnings over the trailing twelve months and annualize that median result in the calculation?

✔️Accepted answer: The GEN historical PE ratio using the annualized median TTM earnings method works out to 1.8.

On this page we presented the GEN Historical PE Ratio information for Gen Digital Inc. - Common Stock' stock. The average GEN historical PE 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 14.7. Meanwhile, using the trailing twelve month (TTM) quarterly earnings result as our method of calculation the "E" value at each measurement period, the average GEN historical PE based on this TTM earnings result method is 25.2. Note: any PE calculations involving negative earnings were discarded as not meaningful.

Let's now compare this GEN historical PE result, against the recent PE: when this page was posted on 2/2/2023, the most recent closing price for GEN had been 23.57, and the most recent quarterly earnings result, annualized, was 1.8. Meanwhile, the most recent TTM earnings summed to 1.81. From these numbers, we calculate the recent GEN PE on 2/2/2023 based on annualized quarterly EPS was 13.1. Based on GEN's history, that recent PE is low relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 10.9% lower than the historical average PE across our data set for Gen Digital Inc. - Common Stock. Looking at the recent GEN PE on 2/2/2023 based on TTM EPS, we calculate the ratio at 13.0. Based on GEN's history, that recent PE is low relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 48.4% lower than the average PE across our Gen Digital Inc. - Common Stock data set with TTM EPS used in the calculation at each period.

Another interesting GEN historical PE Ratio calculation we look at is to take the median earnings per share of the last four quarters for GEN, and then annualize the resulting value... with that annualized number then being used in the PE calculation. To walk through this math for GEN, we start with the past four EPS numbers and we first sort them from lowest to highest: 0.45, 0.45, 0.45, and 0.46. We then toss out the highest and lowest result, and then take the average of those two middle numbers — 0.45 and 0.45 — which gives us the median of 0.45. Basically the way to think about this 0.45 number is this: for the trailing four earnings reports, 0.45 marks the "middle ground" number where GEN has reported a value higher than 0.45 half the time, and has reported a value lower than 0.45 half the time. Annualizing that median value then gets us to 1.8/share, which we use as the denominator in our next PE calculation. With 23.57 as the numerator (as of 2/2/2023), the calculation is then 23.57 / 1.8 = 13.1 as the GEN PE ratio as of 2/2/2023, based on that annualized median value we calculated.

For self directed investors doing their due diligence on GEN or any other given stock, valuation analysis for GEN can greatly benefit from studying the past earnings and resulting PE calculations. This exercise can help inform an analysis as to whether the past earnings trajectory and current versus historical PE ratios justify the current stock value.
