I am trying to understand why the P/E for ENOC is so high (90).

In particular, I am interested in knowing if it is because ENOC has only recently turned profitable (leading to a currently low EPS in the P/E ratio)?

In general, is it true that when a company starts turning profitable, since its EPS will initially be low, the P/E ratio tends to be abnormally high?
