English term or phrase: X times forward earnings
My context:

Many of the most attractive shares in the market are even cheaper now than they were six months ago which makes for an excellent entry period. A large number of shares in our portfolio with exceptional growth prospects are trading on *** 5 - 7 times forward earnings***.

I am not sure if I understand, what does that mean.
