Capitalization ratios

• Show how a firm has financed the investment in assets. There are three capitalization alternatives: debt, preferred equity and common equity.

• Also called financial leverage ratios, these ratios compare debt to total capitalization and thus reflect the extent to which a corporation is trading on its equity. Capitalization ratios can be interpreted only in the context of the stability of industry and company earnings and cash flow.
