Financial ratios and industry averages are useful for comparing a company with its industry for benchmarking purposes. Some of the most common are:

  • Current ratio - current assets divided by current liabilities. It indicates how well a company is able to pay its current expenses.
  • Quick ratio - current assets minus inventory, divided by current liabilities.
  • P/E (price to earnings) ratio - price per share divided by the earnings per share. Generally, the higher the ratio, the riskier the stock.
