Debt to Equity Ratio

It is used to evaluate a company's financial leverage and is calculated by dividing a company’s total liabilities by its shareholder equity. It is a measure of the degree to which a company is financing its operations through debt versus wholly owned funds

How calculated

Debt / Equity= Total Liabilities / Total Shareholders’ Equity ​ ​

Example usage

=hf_Debt_to_Equity_Ratio("MSFT",2019) - Returns the value for the year 2019.
=hf_Debt_to_Equity_Ratio("MSFT",2019,2) - Returns the value for the year 2019 and the calendar quarter 2
=hf_Debt_to_Equity_Ratio("MSFT",2019,3,"TTM") - Returns the value for the year 2019 and trailing twelve months from the calendar quarter
=hf_Debt_to_Equity_Ratio("MSFT","lq") - Returns the value for the last quarter
=hf_Debt_to_Equity_Ratio("MSFT","lq-1") - Returns the value for the last quarter-1
=hf_Debt_to_Equity_Ratio("MSFT","ly") - Returns the value for the last year
=hf_Debt_to_Equity_Ratio("MSFT","ly-1") - Returns the value for the last year - 1
=hf_Debt_to_Equity_Ratio("MSFT","lt") - Returns the value for the last 12 months.
=hf_Debt_to_Equity_Ratio("MSFT","lt-1") - Returns the value for the previous last 12 months.


A “good” debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio will depend on the nature of the business and its industry. Generally speaking, a D/E ratio below 1.0 would be seen as relatively safe, whereas ratios of 2.0 or higher would be considered risky. Some industries, such as banking, are known for having much higher D/E ratios than others. Note that a D/E ratio that is too low may actually be a negative signal, indicating that the firm is not taking advantage of debt financing to expand and grow
