4 High Ebitda Margin Stock Picks

·4 min read

- By

If you want to have a higher chance to discover companies that are in good shape from a financial standpoint, you may want to consider the following four stocks, as their trailing 12-month (TTM) Ebitda margins are topping the S&P 500's 20.4% as of the writing of this article.

The Ebitda margin, which is calculated as earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization divided by total revenue, is a good indicator of a company's financial health as it doesn't consider the effect of unique decisions and tax laws when assessing the performance of a company. These decisions refer to the recognition of amortization and depreciation, which may differ significantly, even among companies that operate in the same industry.
