Leverage Ratio

The screener calculates the Leverage Ratio as Total debt  / (Total assets + Total assets previous year) / 2

It is thus total debt divided by the average total assets of the company over the past two years. 

 

How to use the ratio

Available as a screening ratio: No

Available as an output column ratio: Yes (Look for it under the Quality heading)

 

How to select the lowest Leverage Ratio companies

The leverage ratio is only available as an output column in the screener - use the small funnel icon to only select the values you want to see.

To find companies with the lowest value - low debt to asset companies - sort the column from low to high.
