Alphabet Shares Owned by Insiders vs. Debt to Equity Fundamental AnalysisAlphabet is rated below average in debt to equity category among related companies. It is rated # 4 in shares owned by insiders category among related companies making about 1.75 of Shares Owned by Insiders per Debt to Equity. Debt to Equity is calculated by dividing the Total Debt of a company by its Equity. If the debt exceeds equity of a company then the creditors have more stakes in a firm than the stockholders. In other words, Debt to Equity ratio provides analysts with insights about composition of both equity and debt, and its influence on the valuation of the company.
High Debt to Equity ratio typically indicates that a firm has been borrowing aggressively 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.Shares Owned by Insiders show percentage of outstanding shares owned by insiders (such as key officers or members of the board of directors) or private individuals and entities with over 5% of the total shares outstanding. Company executives or private individuals with access to insider information share information about a firm's operations that is not available to the general public.
Although the research on effects of insider trading on prices and volatility is still relatively inconclusive, investors are advised to pay a close attention to the distribution of equities among company's stakeholders to avoid many problems associated with the disclosure of price sensitive information.
