"[I]f you are still interested in a software program to help, be sure to pick one that adheres to a reasonable methodology. One excellent package is the Investor's Toolkit from the National Association of Investors Corp....

It can then tell you if the current P-E ratio is in-line based with its historical range. This software is a great tool to help investors stop themselves from potentially paying too much for a stock."
