PER is the same as P/E Ratio. Below I have copied/pasted defn from ASX site for your info. Go to home page, scoll to bottom in the middle. You will find 'A thru to Z'.
Price / Earning Ratio (P/E Ratio)
Shows the number of times the share price covers the company’s earnings
per share (EPS). It is commonly used to measure how attractive a share is to
investors, and to compare shares in one company with another.
Calculated by: Market price of shares / Earnings per Share = P/E Ratio
hope this helps
