Is there a difference btw the terms "Operating Margin" and "Gross Margin". Recently I was looking at JNJ and the Value Line Suvey says that their operating margin for 2003 was 30.5%. However, when I calculate it myself (revenue = 41862, gross profit = 29686) I come up with 71%. This leads me to believe that the two terms are just inverse where operating margin is cost of revenue / sales, and gross margin is gross profit / sales. Please advise.
