ROA measures the profitability of the assets employed without regard to financing Profit Margin the percentage kept of each dollar of revenue (express as a percentage) Asset turnover dollars of revenue generated for each dollar of assets invested (express as a decimal) Explanation: ROA decreases because profit margin and asset turnover decreases The reason why cash flows from operations is consistently much higher than net income is because of depreciation.

    Excerpt: ... The Du Pont Identity Presented by: Group 6 Du Pont Identity An expression that breaks return on equity (ROE) down into three parts: profit margin, total asset turnover and financial leverage. Du Pont Identity The Du Pont identity tells us that ROE is affected by three things: 1.) Operating efficiency (measured by profit margin) 2.) Asset use efficiency (measured by total asset turnover ) 3.) Financial leverage (measured by the equity multiplier) Du Pont Identity ROE = Profit Margin x Total Asset Turnover x Equity Multiplier Whereas: Profit Margin = Net Income Sales Total Asset Turnover = Sales Assets Equity Multiplier = Assets Total Equity Du Pont Identity If ROE is unacceptable, the Du Pont identity helps locate the part of the business that is underperforming. ...

    Excerpt: ... ate sales. Examples of this type of ratio include accounts receivable turnover, inventory turnover, fixed asset turnover , and total asset turnover . Leverage ratios are used to measure the extent to which a firm has financed its assets with outside (non-owner) sources of funds. Example ratios include the debt ratio, long-term debt-to-total-capitalization ratio, and times interest earned ratio. Profitability ratios serve as overall measures of the effectiveness of the firms management relative to sales and/or to investment. Examples of profitability ratios include the net profit margin, return on total assets, operating profit margin, operating return on assets, and return on common equity. Instead, we have chosen to cluster the ratios around important questions that may be addressed to some extent by certain ratios. These questions, along with the related ratios may be stated as follows: 1. How liquid is the firm? Current ratio Quick ratio Accounts receivable turnover (average collection period) Inventory t ...

    3.7 Assignment 2_Solutions

    UT Dallas, ACCT 3320

    Excerpt: ... Assignment 2 Solutions - Financial Analysis Question 1. Which of the following types of firms do you expect to have particularly high or low asset turnover ? Explain why. Supermarket-High asset turnover . Supermarkets tend to be high volume businesses. Many of the food products in supermarkets are perishable, and freshness is often used to differentiate products, forcing a certain amount of inventory turnover. The typical consumer buys groceries on a regular basis, guaranteeing grocery stores a certain level of overall business. Apart from inventories, a supermarket's largest assets are its warehouses and stores, all constructed to be relatively inexpensive. Thus, high sales volumes generate a high measured level of asset turnover . Pharmaceutical Company- High asset turnover . Drugs typically have a limited shelflife. Once past their expiration date, drugs cannot be sold and are worthless. Consequently, pharmaceutical companies try to limit production to quantities which can be expected to be sold before t ...

    Northeastern, FIN 201

    Excerpt: ... O are unchanged means that the company has increased its inventories. Differences in the amounts of assets necessary to generate a dollar of sales cause asset turnover ratios to vary among industries. For example, a steel company needs a greater number of dollars in assets to produce a dollar in sales than does a grocery store chain. Also, profit margins and turnover ratios may vary due to differences in the amount of expenses incurred to produce sales. For example, one would expect a grocery store chain to spend more per dollar of sales than does a steel company. Often, a large turnover will be associated with a low profit margin, and vice versa. Inflation will cause earnings to increase, even if there is no increase in sales volume. Yet, the book value of the assets that produced the sales and the annual depreciation expense remain at historic values and do not reflect the actual cost of replacing those assets. Thus, ratios that compare current flows with historic values become distorted over time. For exam ...
