Meggitt's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Meggitt shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Meggitt's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8522. 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 Meggitt's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
