    Guys,

    I’m looking for a link to website that can show me AAPL’s historic P/E ratios for the last 3-5 years - plotted quarterly, monthly or weekly - any suggestions?

    I have a good handle on where I think EPS will be (give or take a few dimes) and I want to see where the share price will be based on a guess of P/E—this will help me feel comfortable or uncomfortable with the lEAPS I am holding on to..

    I don’t know of any link, but I have a spreadsheet that includes daily hi and low PEs going back to Nov 4, 2004.

    You can’t do more, make more, be more, than the next guy, if you think like the next guy. Think different.

    Be very careful in using p/e ratios prior to the retrospective adjustment for the elimination of deferred revenue accounting on the iPhone. The “official” eps understates earnings from the iPhone and AAPL may have traded higher relative to earnings as a result. This will impact the p/e multiples from the release of the iPhone in 2007 until the end of FY 2009.
