Examples of operating data
Operating data refers to specific data points like same-store sales, number of stores, sales per square feet and lease obligations. The above data points apply to retail companies like Walmart Inc. (NYSE:WMT) and Target Corp. (NYSE:TGT).
Figure 2 illustrates a sample "operating data" section for Walmart.
The operating data for one industry differs from that of different industries. For example, banks like Bank of America Corp. (NYSE:BAC) have ratios like the Capital Tier 1 ratio, efficiency ratio and the net charge off ratio, as Figure 3 illustrates.
Operating data allows users to retrieve revenue passenger miles data for airlines, like American Airlines Inc. (NASDAQ:AAL), United Airlines Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:UAL), Delta Air Lines Inc. (NYSE:DAL) and Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE:LUV).
GuruFocus Premium members can view and download up to 30 years of historical financial data and over three to five years of historical operating data.
