# What is a tabular analysis?

**TABULAR ANALYSIS**. In its most general form,

**tabular analysis**includes any

**analysis**that uses tables, in other words, almost any form of quantitative

**analysis**. The first is known as subgroup

Similarly, you may ask, how do you find net income from tabular analysis?

The **net income formula** is **calculated** by subtracting total expenses from total revenues. Many different textbooks break the expenses down into subcategories like cost of goods sold, operating expenses, interest, and taxes, but it doesn't matter. All revenues and all expenses are used in this **formula**.

Similarly, what is EBIT formula? The **EBIT formula** is calculated by subtracting cost of goods sold and operating expenses from total revenue. This **formula** is considered the direct method because it adjusts total revenues for the associated expenses. The indirect method starts with net income and backs out interest expense and taxes.

People also ask, how do we find retained earnings?

The **retained earnings** are calculated by adding net **income** to (or subtracting net losses from) the previous term's **retained earnings** and then subtracting any net dividend(s) paid to the shareholders. The figure is calculated at the end of each accounting period (quarterly/annually.)

Are dividends an asset?

**Dividends** Are Considered **Assets** for Shareholders When a company pays cash **dividends** on its outstanding shares, it first declares the **dividend** to be paid as a dollar amount per owned share. Cash **dividends** are considered **assets** because they increase the net worth of shareholders by the amount of the **dividend**.
