# Operating Margin

Fundamental Analysis Term

Operating Margin is a financial metric that measures the profitability of a company's core operations. It shows the percentage of revenue that remains after subtracting all of the operating expenses, including cost of goods sold, depreciation, amortization, and salaries.

Operating Margin is important for investors because it provides insights into the efficiency of a company's operations. A high Operating Margin indicates that a company is generating profits from its core business, whereas a low Operating Margin suggests that a company may be facing operational challenges or inefficiencies.

Operating Margin is used extensively in fundamental analysis, a method of evaluating a company's intrinsic value based on financial and economic data.

The formula for Operating Margin is:

Operating Margin = Operating Income / Revenue
