Financial Term

The financial term for this blog is the debt-to-equity ratio, which measures the degree to which a company uses its debt and equity to fund themselves. Higher values pertain to companies that use more debt than equity to fund fundamental operations. Companies with a high debt-to-equity ratio are typically overperforming. They generate higher revenue, although, in some situations, high debt-to-equity values mean that a company likely has a lower cost of capital than if it was all equity financed as equity is more expensive.
