In an effort to learn how to apply the Finance King Criteria, I have been going through the very helpful AXP example provided by TMF Grape (http://www.fool.com/portfolios/rulemaker/2000/rulemaker000310.htm). When I tried to duplicate his Asset Turnover calculation, I ran into a problem. He states that dividing AmEx's Revenues of $5,311M by its Total Assets of $132,616 yields an Asset Turnover ratio of 16%. However, dividing 5,311 by 132,616 equals 4%. Am I missing something?

Thanks very much,
Irv
