Capital Turnover

A ratio of how effectively a publicly-traded company manages the capital invested in it to produce revenues. It is calculated by taking the total of the company's annual sales and dividing it by the average stockholder equity, which is the average amount of money invested in the company. A high ratio indicates that the company is using its capital well, while a low ratio indicates the opposite. It is also called equity turnover.
