Filters - Financial Strength Statistics

  • Step 1: Select an option from any of the dropdowns to narrow down your search based on the criteria selected.
  • Step 2: Enter numbers in the text boxes to restrict your search to companies that have a minimum (greater than) or maximum (less than) value.

If you enter numbers in both fields, your search will isolate those companies within the range you've specified. To isolate companies with a statistic greater than a certain value, enter the value in the minimum text box. To isolate companies with a statistic less than a certain value, enter the value in the maximum text box.

If you choose to use multiple dropdowns, the search will isolate stocks and indexes that match the criteria entered in all dropdowns.

Market Capitalization: The total dollar value of all outstanding shares. It's computed as shares multiplied by current market price. Capitalization is a measure of corporate size.

Revenue: Total revenue from operations, less sales and excise taxes, plus income from investments and any other pre-tax income during the most recent annual period.

Earnings: This figure shows the difference between how much revenue a company received and the expenses a company incurred during the most recent annual period. Net income refers to the company's after-tax profits before extraordinary gains or extraordinary losses. Net income is also known as profit or earnings.

Operating Margin: Operating revenues less operating expenses, divided by operating revenues, expressed as a percentage. Shows the percentage of operating revenues a company retains after operating expenses.

Net Profit Margin: Net income divided by sales. The amount of each sales dollar left over after all expenses have been paid.

Interest Coverage: Earnings before extraordinary items plus income taxes and interest expense. Shows how many times over a company can cover its interest obligations from earnings.

% Dividend Payout: Earnings before extraordinary items, divided by total dividends. Shows how many times over a company can pay its dividends from earnings.

Debt to Equity: Short- and long-term interest-bearing debt (including capital lease obligations) divided by shareholders' equity. A capitalization ratio that indicates the extent to which a company is financing its assets with debt and its degree of financial leverage. A high debt-to-equity ratio, which indicates very aggressive financing or a history of large losses, results in very volatile earnings. A low debt-to-equity ratio indicates conservative financing and low risk, with reduced possibilities of large losses or large gains in earnings.

Quick Ratio: A relatively severe test of a company's liquidity and its ability to meet short short-term obligations. The higher the ratio, the more liquid the company. The quick ratio is calculated by dividing current liabilities into all current assets with the exception of inventory.

Current Ratio: Ratio of current assets divided by current liabilities. An indicator of short-term, debt-paying ability. The higher the ratio, the more liquid the company.
