									SV150 TOP 10 LISTS
SALES CHANGES
Combined sales for the SV150 grew 5.2 percent in 2008 compared with the year before, less than half the gain of the year before. It was the smallest gain since 2001 when sales dropped in the wake of the dot-com bust. In 2008, sales dropped at 54 companies, or 36 percent, of the SV150.

WORK FORCE CHANGES SALES PER EMPLOYEE
The number of workers employed by the SV150 jumped 20 percent in 2008, the biggest gain ever. The rise was largely due to a 149,000 increase in workers at Hewlett-Packard, which last year acquired Electronic Data Systems. These numbers do not reflect widespread layoffs announced since the beginning of 2009. Sales per employee among the SV150 as a group fell in 2008 by $60,463, or 12.5 percent, compared with the year before. Companies can improve that number by selling more or employing fewer workers. Ninety-six companies increased sales in 2008, while 99 companies hired more workers.

BIGGEST PROFIT MARGINS
Profit margin is expressed as a company's net profit divided by its sales. The SV150 had a combined profit margin of 4.8 percent, down from a record 10.6 in 2007 and the smallest profit margin since 2003. One-time events can skew results. TiVo's profit, for example, includes $87.8 million it recorded from a litigation award.

BIGGEST LOSSES
More than a third of the SV150 reported net losses in 2008 as many companies wrote down the value of some of their assets, including things like “goodwill,” the amount of money paid for an acquisition above the value of its hard assets. Security software maker Symantec wrote off $7 billion worth of it during its quarter ended in December.

BIGGEST GAINS IN MARKET VALUE
The market capitalization, or value, of the SV150 fell 32 percent over the last year to $850 billion as of the end of the first quarter of 2009, wiping out $400 billion of value. It was the lowest valuation for the SV150 in six years. The value is derived by multiplying shares outstanding as of March 31, by the closing price that day.

MARKET-VALUETO-SALES RATIO
One way to see how investors value a company is by looking at what they are willing to pay for the company relative to the amount of sales it generates in a year. The ratio is calculated by dividing the company's market value by its annual sales. The highest ratio belongs to CV Therapeutics, which is being acquired by Gilead Sciences.

MARKET-VALUETO-PROFIT RATIO
An alternate method of valuing a company is to focus on net profit and see how much investors are willing to pay for shares of a company compared to how much profit the company is generating. The ratio is calculated by dividing the company's market value by its annual net income.
