Limitations to Use of Financial Ratios and Ranks
Ranks are designed to provide IDC Financial Publishing, Inc.’s opinion as to the relative value of financial ratios, and are subject to limitations in their use. The ranks have no value in forecasting the direction of future trends of financial ratios. While in our opinion the selected ratios provide an ample financial picture for evaluating a financial institution, the quality of individual financial institutions can also be influenced by factors not taken into account in this analysis.
The quality of a financial institution is not fixed over time, but tends to undergo change. For this reason, changes in ranks occur, reflecting changes in the individual financial ratios.The data utilized for calculations, ranks, and other information was obtained from sources believed to be reliable and accurate; however, neither the publisher nor its employees assume responsibility for the correctness or accuracy of data, calculations, or liability for their use.
