Key industry averages are provided here to help you assess company performance using ICLUBcentral's stock analysis software programs, including Toolkit 6, particularly for these two crucial criteria:
- Pre-tax Income on Revenues or % Pre-tax Profit on Sales. This pre-tax profit margin measures how well management converts sales dollars into profits before taxes.
- Return on Equity. This measures how well management produces a profit from the money invested by the shareholders.
We have also provided averages for Debt/Equity, 5 Year Revenue Growth, 5 Year EPS Growth, PE, and EPS Predictability (R2) for all industries. These items can serve as a quick reference for comparing company growth to the industry growth average. This is useful information when evaluating a company and can help you gauge how well the management is performing in relative terms. The data is provided weekly by StockCentral.com, and StockCentral members can access these industry averages and other sector and industry research in the Data section of the StockCentral.com web site. The data is refreshed weekly on the StockCentral.com site, and can be displayed, printed, and downloaded in various formats.
