Explanation:
VE: Valor de Empresa
P/VL: Precio Valor en Libros

(appeared when looking for the others)

UAFIDA: utilidad antes de gastos financieros, impuestos, depreciación, amortización

P/VTAS: precio de ventas (de títulos)

http://www.bancobgn.com/memoria97/Balanceal31.htm

I don't think the / represents 'ratio', at least not in the last two, POSSIBLY in the first yes.

How you translate these is the problem. I have looked again and again for UAFIDA under various guesses, without success; under utility I can only obtain the economics definition, never in relation to financial markets/values.
Moreover I don't like the 'libros' - does it refer to 'book(s)', shouldn't it be singular? What value is referred to for VE (the book value?), etc.

A real brainteaser! good luck!
