What are the ratio trends, Accounting Basics

Profitability refers to a company's ability to obtain  profits and positive cash flows and to its ability to obtain an adequate return on invested capital or a company's ability to give an adequate return relative to resources devoted to company operations. It is the key to a company's long- run survival. Performance and profitability of a company often are evaluated using the financial information given by a firm's annual report in comparison with other firms in the similar industry. Ratios are useful in this assessment.
