Recent Feedback
  • "I got this feedback and I wanted to know if you can explain it to me. I noticed something within your workings which I believe is incorrect.  It looks like you've mistaken the Debt ratio for the Equity Multiplier.  You've done a calculation to determine Return on Equity (ROE) but if you take a look at the ratios provided for us you'll see ROE listed on the bottom line already.  You can use ROE, Profit Margin and Total Asset Turnover to figure out the Equity Multiplier amount.  Equity multiplier is not provided for us and we need to calculate it.  I really hope this is helpful to you.  "
