1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest Coverage (current year). The higher, the better.

Note: If both Interest Expense and Interest Income are empty, while Net Interest Income is negative, then use Net Interest Income as Interest Expense.

Interest Coverage is a ratio that determines how easily a company can pay interest expenses on outstanding debt. It is calculated by dividing a company's Operating Income (EBIT) by its Interest Expense:

MPLX LP's Interest Expense for the months ended in Jun. 2021 was $-197 Mil. Its Operating Income for the months ended in Jun. 2021 was $907 Mil. And its Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation for the quarter that ended in Jun. 2021 was $19,695 Mil.

MPLX LP's Interest Coverage for the quarter that ended in Jun. 2021 is

Interest Coverage=-1*Operating Income (Q: Jun. 2021 )/Interest Expense (Q: Jun. 2021 )
=-1*907/-197
=4.60

The higher the ratio, the stronger the company's financial strength is.

Warning Sign:

Ben Graham prefers companies interest coverage is at least 5. MPLX LP interest coverage is 4.34, which is low.

2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better.

MPLX LP's Debt to Revenue Ratio for the quarter that ended in Jun. 2021 is

Debt to Revenue Ratio=Total Debt (Q: Jun. 2021 ) / Revenue
=(Short-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation) / Revenue
=(65 + 19695) / 9196
=2.15
