That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
The Mosaic Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1973. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into The Mosaic Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like The Mosaic Company.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 37.5
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and The Mosaic Company's overall score of 37.5 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 77th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like The Mosaic Company is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 18.72/100
The Mosaic Company's environmental score of 18.72 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that The Mosaic Company is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 12.39/100
The Mosaic Company's social score of 12.39 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that The Mosaic Company is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 8.89/100
The Mosaic Company's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that The Mosaic Company is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. The Mosaic Company scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that The Mosaic Company has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Dividend payout ratio: 4.91% of net profits
Recently The Mosaic Company has paid out, on average, around 4.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Mosaic Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Mosaic Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.275 per share.
While The Mosaic Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that The Mosaic Company is investing more in its future growth.
The Mosaic Company's most recent dividend payout was on 17 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
The Mosaic Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 December 1995. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Mosaic Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Mosaic Company shares which in turn could have impacted The Mosaic Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, The Mosaic Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.0713 up to $79.28. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while The Mosaic Company's is 1.6299. This would suggest that The Mosaic Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
