The price-to-revenue ratio (P/R) or price-to-sales ratio (P/S) is a financial metric used to evaluate the valuation of a company's stock relative to its revenue. It is calculated by dividing the market price per share of the stock by the company's revenue per share.


The P/R ratio helps investors assess whether a stock is overvalued or undervalued by comparing the stock price to the company's sales. A low P/R ratio indicates that the stock may be undervalued, while a high P/R ratio suggests the stock may be overvalued.


However, it should be noted that the P/R ratio alone cannot provide a comprehensive analysis of a stock's value. Other factors like a company's profitability, growth prospects, industry comparables, and overall economic conditions should also be considered in making investment decisions.
