A high ratio may indicate positive factors such as good stock demand and management. A low ratio may indicate that either stock is naturally slow moving or problems such as the presence of obsolete stock or good presentation. A low ratio can also be indicative of potential stock valuation issues. It is a good idea to monitor the ratio over consecutive financial years to determine if a trend is developing.

It can be useful to compare this financial ratio with the working capital ratio. For example business operations with low stock turnover tend to require higher working capital.

The calculation used to obtain the ratio is:

Stock Turnover Ratio =

  Cost of Goods  
 Average Stock
