Debt to equity ratio

• Refers to the capitalization relationship of securities. Here, it is the amount of bonds and preferred stocks relative to the corporate equity position.

• The ratio identifies the relationship of debt to ownership interest in the firm's financial structure. A measure of a company's financial leverage, calculated by dividing Long Term Debt by Shareholders' Equity. A higher debt/equity ratio generally means that a company has been aggressive in financing its growth with debt, which can result in volatile earnings as a result of the additional interest expense.
