Operating Profit Margin (Operating Profit / Sales)

Overview: Profitability Ratios


This week we will focus on the company’s profitability ratios. Profitability ratios are very important to investors. Companies often use these ratios when evaluating its managers.


Profitability should be viewed from three different perspectives:


1. Profitability in relation to sales.


2. Profitability in relation to assets.


3. Profitability in relation to equity.


It is quite possible for the company to perform well from one perspective and poorly from another.
