United Therapeutics Peter Lynch chart 15 x Earnings per Share vs Share price
Earnings swing wildly because they are linked to stock price option pay of management. When the stock price goes down, management pay goes down and earnings go up, and vice versa.
Red = Earnings per share (x 15) = Price of share if PE was 15.
Green = Share price
