Explanation

Total Assets is connected with Return on Assets.

{COMPANY->company}'s annualized ROA % for the quarter that ended in Jul. 2017 is

ROA %=Net Income (Q: Jul. 2017 )/( (Total Assets (Q: Apr. 2017 )+Total Assets (Q: Jul. 2017 ))/ 2 )
=11596/( (199718+201566)/ 2 )
=11596/200642
=5.78 %

Note: The Net Income data used here is four times the quarterly (Jul. 2017) net income data.

In the article Joining The Dark Side: Pirates, Spies and Short Sellers, James Montier reported that In their US sample covering the period 1968-2003, Cooper et al find that firms with low asset growth outperformed firms with high asset growth by an astounding 20% p.a. equally weighted. Even when controlling for market, size and style, low asset growth firms outperformed high asset growth firms by 13% p.a. Therefore a company with fast asset growth may underperform.

Total Assets is linked to total revenue through Asset Turnover.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc's Asset Turnover for the quarter that ended in Jul. 2017 is

Asset Turnover
=Sales/Average Total Assets
=Revenue (Q: Jul. 2017 )/( (Total Assets (Q: Apr. 2017 )+Total Assets (Q: Jul. 2017 ))/ 2 )
=123355/( (199718+201566)/ 2 )
=123355/200642
=0.61

* All numbers are in millions except for per share data and ratio. All numbers are in their local exchange's currency.

Therefore, if a company grows its assets faster than its sales, the asset turnover will decline. This might be a warning sign for the business.
