DebtEquity (DE) Ratio, calculated by dividing a company’s total liabilities by its stockholders' equity, is a debt ratio used to measure a company's financial leverage. The DE ratio indicates how much debt a company is using to finance its assets relative to the value of shareholders’ equity.

Conversely, firms in sectors, such as utilities and telecommunications, which have large asset bases will have lower asset turnover. Since this ratio can vary widely from one industry to the next, considering the asset turnover ratios of a retail company and a telecommunications company will not make for an accurate comparison. Comparisons are only meaningful when they are made for different companies within the same sector.
