JD.com's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6064. 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 JD.com's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
