English term or phrase: trading at multiples in line with S&P
The US drug group is down 12 percent year to date and is still cheap trading at multiples in line with S&P 500 on one-year forward estimates compared to a historical premium on 20 percent. The sector has lost its safe haven status to some extent due to the many disappointments it has delivered lately. The European drug group is currently trading at a 25 percent premium to the European market.

Explanation:
Glenn is right. A 'multiple' is the ratio of a share price to the company's annual earnings, also known as 'P/E ratio', or Price/Earnings ratio. So they are saying that this US drug group is trading at multples in line with typical S&P 500 stocks, whereas they used to trade at a 20% higher multiple. The web site below explains better.
Sorry I can't give you the Swedish - I am SV>EN only. But I worked for many years as a financial journalist.

Hej och tack så mycket! Jag hittade faktiskt uttrycket 'p/e-multiplar' i Finanstidningen. Se följande länk:

Dessutom fick jag just svar från en god vän till mig som arbetar som fondmäklare i London och han menade att detta är en fullt acceptabel term även på svenska. Tack!
