Asset Management Ratios

Module by: Rudy Lopes. E-mail the author

Summary: Asset Management ratios help analyze how quickly a company's resources can be converted to cash or sales. These tutorials define the ratios and walk you through the calculations, including where on the financial statements the numbers can be found.

Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) -- The days sales outstanding ratio (DSO) gives an indication of how long it takes to collect accounts receivables, comparing outstanding receivables to average daily sales. This tutorial walks you through the calculation as well as where on the financial statements you'd find the numbers.

Fixed Assets Turnover Ratio -- The fixed assets turnover ratio measures how fixed assets are used to generate sales, by comparing sales to net fixed assets. This interactive tutorial walks you through the calculations as well as where to find the numbers on your financial statements.

Inventory Turnover Ratio -- The inventory turnover ratio compares sales to inventories, reflecting a company's ability to convert inventory into cash. This interactive tutorial walks you through the calculations, and shows you where to find the numbers of your financial statements.

Total Asset Turnover Ratio -- The total assets turnover ratio measures the use of all assets in terms of sales, by comparing sales with net total assets. This interactive tutorial walks you through the calculations as well as where on the financial statements to find the numbers.
