The most common ratio is the ratio analysis which is mostly used my investors and creditors today. It is the most common form of financial analysis. It provides relative measures of the firms condition and performance. Horizontal analysis is used to evaluate the trend in the accounts over years, while vertical analysis, also called a "common size financial statement," discloses the internal structure of the firm. It indicates the existing relationship between sales and each income statement account.
