On this page we presented the WMT Historical PE Ratio information for Walmart' stock. The average WMT 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 17.9. Meanwhile, using the trailing twelve month (TTM) quarterly earnings result as our method of calculationg the "E" value at each measurement period, the average WMT historical PE based on this TTM earnings result method is 18.3.

Let's now compare this WMT historical PE result, against the recent PE: when this page was posted on 9/17/2021, the most recent closing price for WMT had been 144.73, and the most recent quarterly earnings result, annualized, was 7.12. Meanwhile, the most recent TTM earnings summed to 6.2. From these numbers, we calculate the recent WMT PE on 9/17/2021 based on annualized quarterly EPS was 20.3. Based on WMT's history, that recent PE is elevated relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 13.4% higher than the historical average PE across our data set for Walmart. Looking at the recent WMT PE on 9/17/2021 based on TTM EPS, we calculate the ratio at 23.3. Based on WMT's history, that recent PE is elevated relative to the historical average, with the recent PE 27.3% higher than the historical average PE across our Walmart data set with TTM EPS used in the calculation at each period.

Another interesting WMT historical PE Ratio calculation we look at is to take the median earnings per share of the last four quarters for WMT, and then annualize the resulting value... with that annualized number then being used in the PE calculation. To walk through this math for WMT, we start with the past four EPS numbers and we first sort them from lowest to highest: 1.34, 1.39, 1.69, and 1.78. We then toss out the highest and lowest result, and then take the average of those two middle numbers — 1.39 and 1.69 — 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 WMT 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 144.73 as the numerator (as of 9/17/2021), the calculation is then 144.73 / 6.16 = 23.5 as the WMT PE ratio as of 9/17/2021, based on that annualized median value we calculated.

For self directed investors doing their due diligence on WMT or any other given stock, valuation analysis for WMT 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.
