Greetings,

May I suggest reading http://www.efficientfrontier.com/ef/401/fisher.htm and looking into various discount models as this is likely where an answer to your question lies assuming one is just discounting an earnings stream. Though I suppose one could also use dividends or cash flow instead and get various results.

Meanwhile there are other valuation techniques such as looking at other stocks within an industry or market capitalization indices, e.g. an index of small cap stocks may trade at a higher P/E than large cap at times. These are also sometimes useful in gauging how frothy a stock is.

Regards,
JB
