Debt to capital ratio

• The ratio of total debt to total capital ([short + long term debt] / capital). For long-term investors, a suggested acceptable percentage is up to 33%. Debt must be funded in good times and bad, so a company going through a bad slump has a better chance of recovering if its debt load is not too high. Keep in mind that debt serves the useful function of helping the company grow. It is up to management to use it wisely and increase the sales and earnings.
