an assessment of how the company is doing in comparison with its performance in past years and
with the performance of competitors in the industry.
Financial ratios include four basic groups: liquidity, leverage, activity, and profitability.
Liquidity and leverage ratios represent an assessment of the risk of the firm. Activity and
profitability ratios are measures of the return generated by the assets of the firm. Balance sheet
and the income statement are the two basic financial statements used in financial analysis. The
Du Pont system of financial analysis provides clues to management related to lack of success of
a firm. This financial tool brings together activity, profitability, and leverage measures and
