About Debt to Equity

High Debt to Equity ratio typically indicates that a firm has been barrowing aggressive to finance its growth and as a result may experience a burden of additional interest expense. This may reduce earnings or future growth. On the other hand small D/E ratio may indicate that a company is not taking enough advantage from financial leverage. Debt to Equity ratio measures how the company is leveraging barrowing against the capital invested by the owners.
