While the basic earnings-per-share formula only takes a company's outstanding common shares into account, the diluted earnings-per-share calculation takes all convertible securities into consideration. A company might have convertible preferred shares or stock options that could theoretically become common stock. If this were to happen, the result would be a reduction in earnings per share, and as such, a company's diluted earnings per share will always be lower than its basic earnings per share.
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.
