This week I want to focus on Sales Growth and Profit Margins.
While everybody understands sales, margins might bring up a [url=http://www.tagverts.com/barbour.php]barbour online shop[/url] few question marks.
With earnings season only a few weeks away, now is the perfect time to look at this.
So let's start at the beginning: first and foremost, sales are THE most [url=http://www.rtnagel.com/airjordan.php]jordan pas cher[/url] important thing to a company. Everything else stems from that. Without sales, there really wouldn't be anything else to analyze. And Sales Growth numbers show you how that company is growing.
However, just because sales are increasing doesn't always mean that [url=http://www.davidhabchy.com]barbour sale[/url] profits are increasing too. Sales at the expense of profits does not work. So paying attention to Profit Margins is the next thing we're going to want to look at.
Margin is simply a ratio and the calculation is:
Net Income divided by Sales
So if a company's margin is 15% for instance, that means its net income is 15 cents for every $1 dollar of sales it makes.
But if a company's expenses are growing faster than their sales, this will reduce their [url=http://www.jeremyparendt.com/Barbour-Paris.php]barbour pas cher soldes[/url] margins.
In general, a company with increasing margins is becoming more profitable and is better managed, i.e., their costs are under control.
So continue to look at their sales numbers. And of course, look at their earnings too. But take a look at their profit margins as well. Are they going up or down? In other words, are they making more money on each dollar of sales they make, or less? This is important stuff to know, and can make a huge difference in your portfolio's bottom [url=http://www.par5club.com/louboutin.php]www.par5club.com/louboutin.php[/url] line.

12 Month Trailing Sales Growth (Current / 1 Quarter Ago) greater than their relevant Industry median (Looking for the top companies in their industries.)

Current Net Margin greater [url=http://www.jeremyparendt.com/Barbour-Paris.php]barbour france paris[/url] than or equal to Net Margin from 1 Quarter Ago (If a company's profit margin fell [url=http://www.shewyne.com/woolrichoutlet.html]woolrich sito ufficiale[/url] last quarter, there's a chance it might fall yet again. So we're excluding those companies whose margins fell in the previous quarter.)
