  • Measure a firm's ability to convert different accounts within their balance sheets into cash or sales. Companies will typically try to turn their production into cash or sales as fast as possible because this will generally lead to higher revenues. The asset turnover ratio and inventory turnover ratio are good examples of activity ratios There are several general rules that should be kept in mind when calculating asset turnover. First, asset turnover is meant to measure a company's efficiency in using its assets. The higher the number, the better, although investors must be sure compare a business to its industry. It is fallacy to compare completely unrelated businesses. The higher a company's asset turnover, the lower its profit margin tends to be (and visa versa).
  • A class of financial metrics that is used to determine a company's ability to pay off its short-terms debts obligations.  Commonly, including the current ratio, the quick ratio and the operating cash flow ratio. Meaning: The higher the value of the ratio, the larger the margin of safety that the company possesses to cover short-term debts. Working Capital = Current Assets – Current Liabilites The ratio is mainly used to give an idea of the company's ability to pay back its short-term liabilities (debt and payables) with its short-term assets (cash, inventory, receivables). The higher the current ratio, the more capable the company is of paying its obligations. A ratio under 1 suggests that the company would be unable to pay off its obligations if they came due at that point. While this shows the company is not in good financial health, it does not necessarily mean that it will go bankrupt - as there are many ways to access financing - but it is definitely not a good sign.
  • The degree to which an investor or business is utilizing borrowed money. Companies that are highly leveraged may be at risk of bankruptcy if they are unable to make payments on their debt; they may also be unable to find new lenders in the future. Financial leverage is not always bad, however; it can increase the shareholders' return on their investment and often there are tax advantages associated with borrowing. also called leverage.

  • Measures a firm's efficiency at generating profits from every unit of shareholders' equity
  • The return on assets (ROA) percentage shows how profitable a company's assets are in generating revenue. This number tells you what the company can do with what it has, i.e. how many dollars of earnings they derive from each dollar of assets they control. It's a useful number for comparing competing companies in the same industry. The number will vary widely across different industries. Return on assets gives an indication of the capital intensity of the company, which will depend on the industry; companies that require large initial investments will generally have lower return on assets. Return on assets is an indicator of how profitable a company is before leverage, and is compared with companies in the same industry. Since the figure for total assets of the company depends on the carrying value of the assets, some caution is required for companies whose carrying value may not correspond to the actual market value. Return on assets is a common figure used for comparing performance of financial institutions (such as banks), because the majority of their assets will have a carrying value that is close to their actual market value. Return on assets is not useful for comparisons between industries because of factors of scale and peculiar capital requirements (such as reserve requirements in the insurance and banking industries).
  • In general, a high P/E suggests that investors are expecting higher earnings growth in the future compared to companies with a lower P/E. However, the P/E ratio doesn't tell us the whole story by itself. It's usually more useful to compare the P/E ratios of one company to other companies in the same industry, to the market in general or against the company's own historical P/E. It would not be useful for investors using the P/E ratio as a basis for their investment to compare the P/E of a technology company (high P/E) to a utility company (low P/E) as each industry has much different growth prospects. The P/E is sometimes referred to as the "multiple", because it shows how much investors are willing to pay per dollar of earnings. If a company were currently trading at a multiple (P/E) of 20, the interpretation is that an investor is willing to pay $20 for $1 of current earnings. What does P/E tell you? The P/E gives you an idea of what the market is willing to pay for the company’s earnings. The higher the P/E the more the market is willing to pay for the company’s earnings. Some investors read a high P/E as an overpriced stock and that may be the case, however it can also indicate the market has high hopes for this stock’s future and has bid up the price. First, you have to understand that different industries have different p/e ranges that are considered "normal". For example, technology companies may sell at an average of 40 p/e, while textile manufacturers may only trade at an average of 8. There are the exceptions, but for the most part, these differences between sectors are perfectly acceptable. They arise out of different expectations for different businesses; tech stocks usually sell higher because they have a much higher growth rate and earn high returns on equity, while a textile mill, subject to dismal margins and low growth prospects, will trade at a much smaller multiple. http://
  • What Does P/B Tell Us? For value investors, P/B remains a tried and tested method for finding low-priced stocks that the market has neglected. If a company is trading for less than its book value (or has a P/B less than one), it normally tells investors one of two things: either the market believes the asset value is overstated, or the company is earning a very poor (even negative) return on its assets. If the former is true, then investors are well advised to steer clear of the company's shares because there is a chance that asset value will face a downward correction by the market, leaving investors with negative returns. If the latter is true, there is a chance that new management or new business conditions will prompt a turnaround in prospects and give strong positive returns. Even if this doesn't happen, a company trading at less than book value can be broken up for its asset value, earning shareholders a profit. A company with a very high share price relative to its asset value, on the other hand, is likely to be one that has been earning a very high return on its assets. Any additional good news may already be accounted for in the price. (For more on valuing companies and investments, check out 5 Must-Have Metrics For Value Investors.) Best of all, P/B provides a valuable reality check for investors seeking growth at a reasonable price. Large discrepancies between P/B and ROE, a key growth indicator, can sometimes send up a red flag on companies. Overvalued growth stocks frequently show a combination of low ROE and high P/B ratios. If a company's ROE is growing, its P/B ratio should be doing the same. http://

  • We acknowledge that Vietnam is not quite in the same league as the larger ASEAN markets in terms of market capitalization and turnover (see table above). However, we think Vietnam stands out as a better investment choice compared to other frontier markets like Sri Lanka and Pakistan. While Pakistan’s Karachi Stock Exchange has the same market capitalization as Vietnam’s, the average daily turnover in the past 3 months is not much more than half of Vietnam’s. Sri Lanka’s 3-month average daily turnover of USD29mn is roughly the same as Pakistan’s but the market capitalization of USD19bn is the smallest among the three.

  • Insider trading is the trading of a corporation's stock or other securities (e.g. bonds or stock options) by individuals with potential access to non-public information about the company. The law prohibits a person from [4, Article 9] Using inside information in order to purchase or sell securities for that person him/herself or for a third party; Disclosing or giving inside information to another person; and Advising another person to purchase or sell securities based on inside information. A person trading based on inside information may be subject to a fine or criminal prosecution and the trade may be canceled.
  • Securities price manipulation is the agreement between two or more people to sell or purchase securities with the aim to create artificial supply or demand, which causes artificially increasing or decreasing the price of security. Securities price manipulation is prohibited by the Penal code. Le Van Dung – General Director of Vien Dong Pharmaceutical JSC
  • One of the biggest mistakes investors make in investing is failing to separate a good company and a good stock. A great company’s (fundamental) performance is wiped out by valuation compression. This is the battle of two winds: the tailwind of earnings growth and the headwind of P/E compression.
