5 Best Profitable Stocks to Buy in December

Profitability analysis is generally used to determine the ability of a company for generating ample revenues to meet all its business-related expenses and still manage to offer satisfactory returns to its investors. This analysis helps to determine a profitable company over a loss-making one.

The best accounting tool to understand a company’s profitability position is ratio analysis. Generally, there are four key profitability ratios — gross income ratio, operating income ratio, pre-tax profit margin and net income ratio. Here, we have used the most effective and frequently used profitability ratio – net income ratio.

Net Income Ratio

Net income ratio gives us the exact profit 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 capability to bear all its operating and non-operating expenses from its sales revenues. A higher net income ratio usually implies a company’s ability to generate ample sales revenues and successfully manage all its business functions.
