3 Top Profitable Stocks to Bet On Using Net Interest Ratios

Smart investors always look for a profitable company over a loss-making one. Thus, they aim for companies that offer sturdy returns to investors even after meeting all operating and non-operating costs. Here, we have used the concept of accounting ratios to evaluate a company's profitability.

There are a variety of profitability ratios, from which we have chosen the most successful and frequently used profitability metric to determine the bottom-line performance of a company.

To that end, Boot Barn, Nova Measuring Instruments and Vaalco Energy have been selected as the top picks with a high net income ratio.

Net Income Ratio

Net income ratio gives us the exact profitability level of a company. It reflects the percentage of net income to total sales revenues. Using net income ratio, one can determine a company's effectiveness to meet operating and non-operating expenses from revenues. A higher net income ratio usually implies a company's ability to generate ample revenues and successfully manage all business functions.

Here are three of the 13 stocks that qualified the screening:

Boot Barn operates as a lifestyle retail chain devoted to western and work-related footwear, apparel and accessories. The 12-month net profit margin of BOOT is 12.9%.
