Description

The FixedChargeCoverageRatio function returns the ratio of a company's earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) to that same company's fixed charges (interest expense on debt and preferred dividends including tax). By default, the value is returned for the current symbol and based on the annual reporting data. To specify a different symbol for this function, modify the value of the symbol input parameter. To use quarterly data instead of annual, assign the FiscalPeriod.QUARTERLY constant to the fiscalPeriod input parameter.
