About Financial Ratios
Financial ratios are generally ratios of selected values on an enterprise's financial statements. There are many standard financial ratios used in order to evaluate a business or a company. Financial ratios can also be used by managers within a firm, by current and potential shareholders (owners) of a firm, and by a firm's creditors. Security analysts use financial ratios to compare the strengths and weaknesses of various companies. For listed companies, the market price of the shares is used in certain financial ratios. Financial ratios are always expressed as a decimal value, such as 0.10, or the equivalent percent value, such as 10%. Financial ratios quantify many aspects of a business in order to build an exhaustive financial analysis.
