On many of the HG boards, I see the term market multiple being used. In a recent post on the BWLD board:

TMF1000 wrote this in his post:

“Another common theme might be stocks above the market multiple. SCSS and BWLD fit this category. If this tends to be the type companies you are investing in and they are mostly down you might look for those that have a market multiple or below market multiple to add to your portfolio”.

I understand multiples – P/E, P/Book, P/ROI – but I don't understand the context in which the term is being used here. Could someone explain?

Thanks
