Financial Ratios

If you look around the web and read books there are a number of ways to calculate the total asset turnover.  Funny how a formula which is supposed to be so simple, becomes a bit complicated.  We are going to cover two common methods for performing this calculation.  The first method is simply sales/total assets.  This basically tells you how much money you are making relative to the amount of assets on hand.  The second method is taking the sales divided by the average of the total assets over the past 2 years.  


The trailing price to earnings ratio is the most widely used P/E ratio in fundamental analysis. This is because the trailing P/E ratio actually measures a stocks per share earnings over the previous twelve months.
