The PE ratio is a quick measure to compare the Price (P) and the Earnings of a share (E). How then to consider the merits of shares with different PE ratios? Well some say that the Growth (G) can be used to "normalise" a range of PEs across several shares, and so help you choose. The PEG ratio simply divides PE by G to give you a new figure - the PEG ratio. 

 

To see if the "PEG ratio" helps you decide on a share, you have to understand that its about the shape of the earnings profile, not the trivial  arithmetic...

 

Link to this little sheet - it should help...
