Toolkit 6 Debt-to-Equity

The debt-to-equity ratio is a measure of company's financial leverage and is calculated by dividing a company's long-term debt by shareholders' equity. In looking at the company's debt to equity, we can see the proportions in which the company is using debt and equity to finance its growth.

More Updates to the StockCentral Portfolio Tracker

Our StockCentral team has been busy with enhancements to our Portfolio Tracker.

We have just added several new "views" to the Portfolio Tracker tool, allowing you to see the diversification of your holdings by company size, market capitalization and sector. These are in addition to the Take Stock and Summary views that we have previously released.

These new Diversification views are actually based on reports in our Stock Analyst program, so users of that software should find these new reports to be quite familiar.

These new reports require that you enter details on your holdings, including the date of your original purchase and per-share purchase price. If you have set up portfolios on the site in the past, you should click the Manage Companies link and then Edit to add this information. Note that we don't currently support multiple lot purchases, so you should add entries for each major lot or include your average purchase price and first purchase date in a company's entry.

We'll be adding more views in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Start using the StockCentral Portfolio Tracker.
