See Part I for instructions on how to get pandas_datareader or yfinance module to retrieve the data, and Part II to learn how to get stock market data for different geographies.

Key Ratios

You can fetch the latest price to book ratio and price to earnings ratio as shown below.

pb =['priceToBook']
pe =['regularMarketPrice']/['epsTrailingTwelveMonths']
print('Price to Book Ratio is: %.2f' % pb)
print('Price to Earnings Ratio is: %.2f' % pe)
