P/E and P/BV

Hie good people
What are answers for a company selling at 9cents per share and has P/E of 43. Is it still high?
Am still trying to get my head around the fact that a P/E of 15 is good. I happened to bump to a stock exchange priced in cents. One of the company with market cap of 1bn is priced at 9cents just as I was surface browsing I noticed it has a pe of 43 and PBV of 2. Anyone with an idea of what will be going on?

    Yes I know what's going on...you think it is possible to talk about investing in a company only knowing the ttm p/E and p/b....it is not...
  • 77 thanks for your great response. Basically my question is on the novelty of a different stock exchange that is not in United States of America. Am sure you know that before looking at the matrices of Market capital, P/E, P/BV, Liquidity, vigilance, ROE, times interest, and all other methods to establish the standing of the company in subject, you can simply look at how much each dollar of the company is sold. Therefore I happened to see it at 43 but the market price is at $1.56- in fact every company is priced in cents. My question is that do the same laws apply when stocks are priced in dollars and when they are priced in cents?

    not sure I got the question right...if you mean for the same laws...what p/e and p/b represent yes...but beware (I do not if that is the case or if it is pertinent to your question) that if you look at stock priced in a currency but that have reports in another currency you could find discrepancy...also for stocks priced in pound you could find wrong numbers...
