I am a newer value investor and I am trying to slowly learn. I came across these equations and I am not able to find for sure online or in the books I have available what these abbreviations/acronyms might mean. Any help would be so greatly appreciated:

Gross Inc / TQ

cfEBIT adj / TQ

Net Acos / sh

Any idea what the "TQ", "cfEBIT adj" and "Acos" might stand for?

Also the acronym "CROSIC" as well.

Thank you very much,

Without knowing where you are seeing this I'm guessing at some of these.

My guess is that "TQ" = "trailing quarter"

The only "ACO" reference I'm aware of is related to healthcare companies...Accountable Care Organization

CfEbit=cash flow earning before interests and taxes. So they're looking at that amount per share.

    Good catch on TQ - I was guessing ACOS = Actual (or Average) Cost of Sales but those are pure guesses.
