    5. 5. 3.2 Ratio Analysis <ul><li>Ratios also allow for better comparison through time or between companies . </li></ul><ul><li>As we look at each ratio, ask yourself: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How is the ratio computed? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What is the ratio trying to measure and why? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What is the unit of measurement? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What does the value indicate? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can we improve the company’s ratio? </li></ul></ul>

    12. 13. 3.3 The Du Pont Identity <ul><li>ROE = NI / TE </li></ul><ul><li>= (NI / Sales) (Sales / TA) (TA / TE) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>= PM * TAT * EM </li></ul></ul>
    13. 14. Using the Du Pont Identity <ul><li>ROE = PM * TAT * EM </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Profit margin is a measure of the firm’s operating efficiency – how well it controls costs. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Total asset turnover is a measure of the firm’s asset use efficiency – how well it manages its assets. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Equity multiplier is a measure of the firm’s financial leverage . </li></ul></ul>
    14. 15. 3.4 Using Financial Statements <ul><li>Ratios are not very helpful by themselves: they need to be compared to something </li></ul><ul><li>Time-Trend Analysis </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Used to see how the firm’s performance is changing through time </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Peer Group Analysis </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Compare to similar companies or within industries </li></ul></ul>
    15. 16. Potential Problems <ul><li>There is no underlying theory, so there is no way to know which ratios are most relevant. </li></ul><ul><li>Benchmarking is difficult for diversified firms. </li></ul><ul><li>Globalization and international competition makes comparison more difficult because of differences in accounting regulations. </li></ul><ul><li>Firms use varying accounting procedures. </li></ul><ul><li>Firms have different fiscal years. </li></ul><ul><li>Extraordinary, or one-time, events </li></ul>
