Debt-to-Equity Ratio

A company's debt divided by its equity. This ratio is used as a relative measure of debt, but it isn't always useful since equity is a complicated number. It's sometimes better just to look at a company's total debt per share, which you can either look up or calculate since Debt per share = EPS / ROE x Debt/Equity:
Earnings per share: $
Return on Equity:     %
Debt-to-Equity ratio:    
Debt per share: $
