Market value ratios relate the firm’s stock price to its earnings, cash flow, and book value per share, and thus give management an indication of what investors think of the company’s past performance and future prospects.  If the liquidity, asset management, debt management, and profitability ratios all look good, then the market value ratios will be high, and the stock price will probably be as high as can be expected.

 Your assignment is to identify three market value ratios and explain what they mean or what they show/reveal about a company.  It would be a good idea to use the company you selected for your research project.
