As mentioned above consolidated result has higher importance.
We should see both Annual Report and than quarterly reports.

Main items to see are

  • Sales Growth (Absolute Sales Numbers and % growth)

  • Net Profit (absolute profit and the % profit growth)

  • Net Profit Margin (see the profit margin of last 5 years, if its stable - means company is able to maintain price command, if margin is declining means business is facing compeition or decline of sales)

  • Return on Equity (ROE %) - See the trend of last 5 years

  • Return on Capital Employed - See the trend of last 5 years

  • Debt to equity ratio - See the trend of last 5 years

  • Most important is to see the PE ratio and its trend in last 5 years (meaning how much we are paying for the earnings).

In some specific scenarios when you want to zoom into a specific area/organization - standalone results is useful.
