market capital stock quotes

It is the market capitalization of the company. It tells us about the size of the company whether the company is small or big.

Reliance has a market capitalization of ₹995,539.91Cr. The market capitalization depends upon the market price (share price). And the market prices change every time, so the market capitalization. Some people have the misconception that; the share with the highest price is the biggest company. But this is not true. Any company is big or not it depends upon the market capitalization, not on the share price.

Recently, Reliance is the only company in India who touches the market capitalization of Ten Lac crore and become India’s Biggest Company.

Furthermore, market capitalization categorizes into three categories: small-cap, mid-cap, and large-cap companies.

Depend upon the company’s market capital it segregated into these categories only.


EPS stands for Earning per share. It indicates, if the company divide its full profit to their shareholders, then for one share, the shareholder will get how much money.

For Reliance, the EPS is 45.7 and if Reliance divides its full profit to its shareholders then, the shareholder will get ₹45.7 for each share they have in their portfolio.

In the bracket with EPS, TTM has been mentioned. It means trailing twelve months (the last 12 months EPS value). The company shares its financial results every three months. They share collaborated data of all four quarters become the data of 12 months or 1year. The use of EPS is to calculate the P/E ratio.

P/E Stock quotes

It stands for the price to earnings ratio. It helps us to know that, is the share price of a company is overvalued or undervalued compared with its profit or income. This can be calculated as

P/E = Share Price/EPS

Now, check for Reliance industries, the share price is ₹1472.25 and its EPS is 45.7.

So, P/E = 1472.25/45.7 = 32.21

If you want to know that the P/E value of Reliance is more or less you can compare its P/E with its peers’ companies or competitors.

P/E value of Reliance is 32.21, it means for ₹1/- a profit of Reliance; investors are ready to give ₹32/-. For any company, if P/E is more that means investors are optimistic about the company’s future growth. But in a Bull Run market, everybody is optimistic & the P/E value of a company always on the higher side.

If any company P/E ratio is less, it indicates the investors are not confident about the company’s future growth.

Always remember, you cannot compare two different sectors company P/E. If you do that, you cannot judge the future growth or the company valuation properly. For a better understanding of P/E always compare with the same sector companies.


In simple terms, book value is that value, when any company is going to shut its operations fully, then the company must sell its assets. And then from that asset value, they must pay their liabilities.

After paying their liabilities the remaining value is the book value of the company. Book value can be calculated as

Book Value = Total Assets – Total Liabilities

If you look at the book value per share, then you have to divide the book value of the company with its total no. of shares outstanding. This can be calculated as

Book Value/Share = Book Value/ Total no. of outstanding

In the case of Reliance, the book value per share is ₹706.46/-. It means if Reliance closes their operations, sell their assets, and pay their liabilities then the shareholders will get ₹706.46/- per share, they have in their portfolio.

Price to book value

It is the valuation ratio that helps us to know, is the company share price has underpriced or overpriced. It can be calculated as:

P/B = Share price/Book Value

If the P/B ratio >1, which means for ₹1/- a profit of company; investors are ready to pay more.

In the case of Reliance, it’s P/B ratio is 2 that means investors are ready to pay ₹2/- for ₹1/- a profit of a Reliance. It also clear with its share price which is ₹1472.25/- and its book value is ₹704.46/-

P/B = 1472.25/704.46 = 2.08

If the P/B ratio <1, which means for ₹1/- a profit of the company, investors are not confident and only pay less for ₹1/- for their profit.

Always remember the P/B ratio can only be used for manufacturing companies, Automobile, engineering companies, or Asset heavy companies.


Sometimes, company share their profit with shareholders and give some value against their share have in their portfolio. That value is the dividend. The decision for giving the dividend is totally in the hand with the company management or board of directors. Company management will decide whether the dividend is needed to pay or not.

Some growing companies will not share their profits in terms of dividends with shareholders. They generally use that money to grow their businesses.

Dividend, dividend yield and face value

If a company is giving dividends to shareholders, it is the goodwill amount that the shareholder gets in their bank accounts. It is always suggested that if you are investing, invest in the company that is giving dividends to their shareholders.

The dividend is calculated on the face value of the company. When a company issues their shares they decided their face value which is the nominal value. The face value of any company is would be 1, 2, 5, or 10 only.

Now, in the case of Reliance, the face value is ₹10/- and the dividend is 65%.

So, Dividend = 10*65% = ₹6.5/-

That means Reliance is giving ₹6.5/- per share to their shareholders.

Dividend yield means, how much dividend is giving by the company to their shareholders against their share price. This can be calculated as:

Dividend Yield = (Dividend per share/Share price) x 100

To check dividend yield for Reliance, its share price is ₹1472.25, and the dividend is 6.5/-. Its dividend yield can be calculated as:

Dividend yield (Reliance) = (6.5/1472.25)*100 = 0.44%

This dividend yield clears that for every ₹100/- investment by the investor, Reliance is giving 44paisa to their shareholders.

Industry P/E stock quotes
