Price to Research Ratio

What is the definition of P/R?

Price to Research is R&D expenditure divided by market capitalisation. The price-to-research ratio is of most importance in research based businesses, such as pharmaceutical companies and can be useful for identifying research-led businesses that are investing significantly in development. However, a large amount of spending on R&D does not necessarily mean future profits are assured.
