While PayPal rebounded in the summer from the virus crash, its P/E ratio also hit an all-time high in mid-2020. Once earnings gained some momentum in 2021, PayPal’s price-to-earnings ratio returned to pre-pandemic levels as its price rose. But now, in 2022, PayPal’s P/E ratio has fallen to an all-time low, mostly due to a sell-off, and is even lower than when PayPal debuted in the public markets in 2015.

While the United States produces around 98% of its natural gas needs domestically, European Union countries are much more dependent on imports. With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine potentially eliminating much of the supply from the global equation, Europeans are paying unprecedented prices for residential and commercial gas needs.

The exchange rate of the US dollar against the Russian ruble has already moved against Russia’s favor during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the further depreciation of the ruble in March 2022 is of a completely different nature. At one time, a ruble was worth only nine-tenths of a US cent; that is, you would need 105 rubles to buy a single US dollar. The move comes in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions that world governments have imposed on Russia and its currency in response.
