The implication here is that long term investors have an opportunity when expectations of a company are too low. Perhaps the simplest way to get a read on investors; expectations of a business is to look at its Price to Earnings Ratio (PE Ratio). Investors have optimistic expectations of companies with higher P E ratios, compared to companies with lower P E ratios. View our latest analysis for UFO Moviez India
