Title: References for Debt Ratios?
Post by: persistentone on November 28, 2017, 02:06:13 PM
Does anyone have a good reference that would show what are the typical ranges of debt ratios in different industries?   I'm thinking of things like:

* debt-to-equity
* debt-to-assets
* debt-to-revenue

and interest coverage ratios such as:

* earnings-to-interest
* EBITDA-to-interest

Obviously debt-heavy businesses like REITs will have much different debt ratios than asset-light businesses like software.
