To calculate a stock's net profit margin percentage, you need to divide the net profit by the revenue and then multiply it by 100 to express it as a percentage. The formula is as follows:


Net Profit Margin Percentage = (Net Profit / Revenue) * 100


To obtain the net profit, subtract the total expenses (including taxes, interest, and other costs) from the total revenue. Ensure that both the net profit and revenue are from the same period, such as a fiscal year or quarter.

To calculate a stock's net profit margin percentage, you need to know its net income and its total revenue. The formula for calculating net profit margin percentage is as follows:


Net Profit Margin = (Net Income / Total Revenue) x 100


Here's how you can calculate it step by step:

  1. Determine the company's net income: You can find this information on the company's income statement or financial statements. Net income represents the total profit earned by the company after deducting all expenses, including taxes and interest.
  2. Find the company's total revenue: Total revenue refers to the company's total sales or the amount of money generated from selling its products or services. You can usually find this information on the company's income statement or financial statements.
  3. Divide the company's net income by total revenue: Divide the net income by total revenue to get the net profit margin.
  4. Multiply the result by 100: Multiply the quotient in step 3 by 100 to obtain the net profit margin percentage.


For example, if a company's net income is $500,000 and its total revenue is $2,000,000, the net profit margin would be:


Net Profit Margin = ($500,000 / $2,000,000) x 100 = 0.25 x 100 = 25%


Therefore, the net profit margin percentage is 25%.
