Financial Ratio Analysis

Financial ratio information can be used to benchmark how a Instrument Manufacturing for Measuring & Testing Electricity & Electrical Signals company compares to its peers. Accounting statistics are calculated from the industry-average for income statements and balance sheets.

Profitability & Valuation RatiosIndustry Average
Company valuation can be measured based on the firm's own performance, as well as in comparison against its industry competitors. These metrics show how the average company in the Instrument Manufacturing for Measuring & Testing Electricity & Electrical Signals industry is performing.
Profit Margin
Gross Profit Margin, Operating Profit Margin, and Net Profit Margin. Show company earnings relative to revenues.
Return on Equity (ROE)
Return on Equity (ROE) is net income as a percentage of shareholders' equity. Shareholders' Equity is defined as the company's total assets minus total liabilities. ROE shows how much profits a company generates with the money shareholders invested (or with retained earnings).
Return on Assets (ROA)
Return on Assets (ROA) is net income relative to total assets. The market research on Instrument Manufacturing for Measuring & Testing Electricity & Electrical Signals measures how efficiently the company leverages its assets to generate profit. ROA is calculated as Net Income divided by Total Assets.

Liquidity RatiosIndustry Average
Bankers and suppliers use liquidity to determine creditworthiness and identify potential threats to a company's financial viability.
Current Ratio
Measures a firm's ability to pay its debts over the next 12 months.
Quick Ratio (Acid Test)
Calculates liquid assets relative to liabilities, excluding inventories.

Efficiency Ratios - Key Performance IndicatorsIndustry Average
Measure how quickly products and services sell, and effectively collections policies are implemented.
Receivables Turnover Ratio
If this number is low in your business when compared to the industry average in the research report, it may mean your payment terms are too lenient or that you are not doing a good enough job on collections.
Average Collection Period
Based on the Receivables Turnover, this estimates the collection period in days. Calculated as 365 divided by the Receivables Turnover
Inventory Turnover
A low turnover rate may point to overstocking, obsolescence, or deficiencies in the product line or marketing effort.
Fixed-Asset Turnover
Generally, higher is better, since it indicates the business has less money tied up in fixed assets for each dollar of sales revenue.

Compensation & Salary Surveys for Employees
