3 Simple Investment screening ratios you can use:
Do you find it hard to screen for potential investment opportunities? Here are 3 simple screening ratios just to get started. They tackle 3 key questions. Is it potentially cheap? Does it have investment potential? Will it be "safe"?

2. Return on Invested Capital - First cut on profitability
3. Debt / Equity Ratio - First cut on financial health
