Airbus's P/E ratio

Airbus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2426. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Airbus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Airbus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is EUR€7.5 billion (£6.4 billion).
